Today commemorates the 12 wells of water, one for each tribe of Israel and 70 palm trees for the 70m elders led by Moses to sit under and judge and provide for the 70 nations of the earth.
Exodus 15:27 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.
This also is the day that if the Temple were standing we would offer specified sacrifices to YHWH.
Lev. 23:4-8 These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons. In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD's passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
Even as early as Exodus we see the formation of a Holy Nation, a Holy Kingdom, with a Holy King (YHWH) who rules by a Holy Law (Torah). Already He is setting His people up to rightfully and majestically reign with Him in the World to Come.
Rev. 4:1-11 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Rev. 5:8-10 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Rev. 7:9-17 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
Rev. 21:1-6 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev. 21:24-27 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
The Traditional text to read is Psalm 119:49-56:
49 ¶ ZAIN. Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
The Torah is David’s hope, in other places he says it’s his salvation, his Yeshua. And remember what I said that Yeshua is nothing more than the Living Manifestation of the Written Torah?
50 ¶ This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
The Torah is also His Comfort, and what do we call the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) which comes from G-d? The Comforter. In passages in the Brit Chadshah (Renewed Covenant) it says that the Ruach will guide us in all Truth (John 16:13), and David already said that the Torah is Truth.
51 ¶ The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law.
David says that he will stick to his guns and no matter what pressures from others may come, he will not budge nor compromise in regards to the Torah.
52 ¶ I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.
David is comforted by G-d judicial rulings of the Torah because he knows that they are fair, good and holy.
53 ¶ Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.
David hates to think about those who don’t get it, who don’t understand the awesomeness of G-d’s Torah and therefore doesn’t obey it. He know where Torah-less-ness leads.
54 ¶ Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
Before David sung and wrote the Psalms, he but the Torah to music and praised G-d that way. Specifically the Commandments in which G-d gave no logical explanation for at that!
55 ¶ I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law.
He even wants G-d’s Torah to rule his unconscious dream life! He wants to be holy through and through. David goes to sleep thinking about the Torah.
56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
He knows that his night life can only be pure because of G-d’s Word, His Torah and because he lives to obey it, he can have a holy night life.
“Abba YHWH Elohim, not only did You love us enough to save us and give us victory too and taste Your Glory, but have also allowed us to share in Your majesty! Thank You Father! HalleluYah! In the Name of Yeshua Messiah I pray and praise, Ameyn!”
