Shadows Of Prophecy
A shadow is produced when a physical object absorbs light, thereby casting a picture of the pattern of the physical object beyond the object itself. Much of Prophecy is produced when the Light of the Holy Spirit shines upon people or things that were purposely created in the "shape" of things to come. Examples:
Mary, the mother of the Messiah, was a "foreshadow" of the Church of God, the "woman" from whom all of God's children will eventually be born (see Why Did Jesus Have Brothers and Sisters?, What Is The Church?, The Timeless Church and Who Is The Head Of Christ's Church?):
"1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." (Job 8:8-10 KJV)
The Levitical High Priest was a prophecy of the Saviour. The true Christian Holy Days (see the Fact Finder question below) are a foreshadow of the entire process of salvation that is being made possible by The Messiah (see Christ The High Priest and The King Of Zion).
"8:1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens [see Heavens Below, Heavens Above; listen also to our Sermon The Feast Of Tabernacles: Our Tent In Heaven]; 8:2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man. 8:3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer. 8:4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: 8:5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern showed to thee in the mount" [see The Mount Sinai Prophecy](Hebrews 8:1-5 KJV)
"Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things"
The key to understanding the Holy Scriptures is that "the LORD God" was Jesus Christ, sent by the Father to prepare the way for The Father's future coming (see Christ The Creator, 'Before Abraham Was, I AM', 'The God Of The Old Testament' and The Throne Of God, From Heaven To Earth).
"8:1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; 8:2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
Fact Finder: How are all of the true Christian Holy Days living prophecies of the work that the Father sent Jesus Christ to accomplish?
