A Possible Connection Between Jewish Feasts
And The Human Birth Cycle.
Zola Levitt Discovered Something Amazing.
Adapted from J.R. Church
Zola Levitt, a preacher in Dallas Texas, discovered an amazing correlation between Jewish Holy Days and the gestation of a human baby, from conception to birth.
Zola contacted a medical Doctor to help him understand gestation, so the Doctor showed him a series of photographs and when the Doctor then described the times pertaining to the development of the fetus, in Zola's mind an amazing connection was made.
The CYCLE of LIFE begins with the ovulation of a woman's egg. And if we put ourselves back in the time of Moses when God gave LIFE to Israel, let's see what Zola saw.
God gave Israel a Covenant and in that Covenant was the choice of Life or Death, to accept God or to reject Him. And God greatly encouraged Israel to "Choose Life" (Deuteronomy 30:19). And the first Feast (Holy Day) given to Israel in the Covenant was God's Sabbath Law (now non existent) (Sabbath = seventh day).
1. Sabbath. Exodus 16:23 Exodus 16:23 He said to them, "This is what the LORD commanded, Tomorrow is to be a day of rest, a holy Sabbath to the LORD.
And so the Sabbath was God's first ordinance to be observed for generations to come. And it just so happens that the woman's ovulating Cycle of Life is completed every 4 Sabbaths, or 28 days.
When an egg is fertilized, it travels down the uterus and at the end of (approx.) the Sixth Day, it attaches itself to it's new home in it's mother's uterine lining and on (approx.) the Seventh Day it rests where it will then continue to find life under the source of it's mothers blood.
In Egypt (slavery) Israel found Life when they attached themselves in their homes under the blood of the Passover Lamb.
Zola continued to listen to the Doctor as he pointed to the picture of the woman's egg and said that during ovulation the egg appears,
On the fourteenth day of the month.
The day when God in Heaven makes possible the way for a NEW LIFE.
The statement resonated in Zola's Jewish mind because that was the date he remembered being with his family every year at Passover as they celebrated the day that God made it possible for Israel to have a new life.
2. Passover. Exodus 12:6 Take care of the lambs until on the fourteenth day of the month when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. 8That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire along with bitter herbs and bread made without yeast. 11This is how you are to eat it, with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste, it is the LORD's Passover.
The Doctor continued to explain to Zola that the egg must then be fertilized within the day after leaving the ovary, (ovulation)(Passover) or it will pass on.
Zola clearly recalled that the day after Passover Israel celebrated their "Leaving Egypt" with the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
On the fifteenth day the egg has been brought out of the mothers ovary.
3. Feast of Unleavened Bread Exodus 12:17 Celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread, because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt. Leviticus 23:6 On the fifteenth day of that month the LORD's Feast of Unleavened Bread begins, for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast.
The Doctor and Zola now began to review the point in the cycle where,
If the egg becomes fertilized . . . a new life has begun.
And again Zola recalled the yearly celebration of the fruit of Israel's new life.
4. Feast of Firstfruits Leviticus 23:10 Speak to the Israelites and say to them, When you enter the land I am going to give you and you reap its harvest, bring to the priest a sheaf of the first grain you harvest. 11 He is to wave the sheaf before the LORD so it will be accepted on your behalf; the priest is to wave it on the day after the Sabbath. 14 You must not eat any bread, or roasted or new grain, until the very day you bring this offering to your God. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.
Next, Zola was shown a photo of an embryo at approximately fifty days, with visible and tangible hands, fingers, feet, and toes. The Doctor then said that at this time the embryo takes on the form of a human being. Until then, it looks very similar to the fetus of a puppy or rabbit. Zola then recalled every year his family at Pentecost celebrating the fact that fifty days after passing through the Red Sea, God had given Israel a visible and tangible Law on Mount Sinai, to live their lives by.
5. Pentecost Leviticus 23:15 From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks. 16 Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath, and then present an offering of new grain to the LORD.
The next picture showed the embryo at seven months. The Doctor said that on the first day of the seventh month, the baby’s hearing is now developed. For the first time, it can hear and distinguish sounds outside the womb. Zola knew that was the date for the Jewish,
6. Feast of Trumpets. Leviticus 23:24 Say to the Israelites, On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts.
Then the Doctor stated that on the tenth day of the seventh month, the hemoglobin of the blood changes from that of the mother, to the baby. The baby is now able to provide sufficient oxygen using it's own lungs to sustain life. And Zola then remembered that on this extremely important day, the sacrificial blood was taken into the Holy of Holies where it was able to provide sufficient atonement for Israel.
7. Day of Atonement, Leviticus 16:29 This is to be a lasting ordinance for you, On the tenth day of the seventh month you must deny yourselves and not do any work whether native-born or an alien living among you 30 because on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. Then, before the LORD, you will be clean from all your sins.
Then pointing to a photo of the fetus at 26 weeks, the Doctor stated that on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, the fetus can now open it's eyes. Zola was amazed at the miracle of life and immediately recalled the Feast of Tabernacles (temporary homes). Zola could only think about this new child being born, and how we need to open our eyes and see how we belong to God, and how for the next 70 years we will all live in "temporary homes" on earth, and then we will die and go to our eternal homes.
8. Feast of Tabernacles Leviticus 23:34 Say to the Israelites, On the fifteenth day of the seventh month the LORD's Feast of Tabernacles begins, and it lasts for seven days. 42 Live in booths (temporary homes) for seven days, all native-born Israelites are to live in booths (temporary homes).
Zola was indeed amazed at how he had just witnessed his whole young adult life as a Jewish person living the Jewish life and Feasts of God, and how they were all now right in front of him encapsulated within 8 photographs of the development of a human baby. He was truly amazed.
For 40 days Moses was on the mountain with God, and
For 40 weeks the human fetus is in the womb.
On the twenty second day of the ninth month the Baby is born.
That is 266 days from Conception to Birth.
Add 2+6+6 and you get the number of the day on which the egg was produced.
On the fourteenth day of the month. And so the Cycle of Life continues.
No human being could have understood the gestation period 3,300 years ago. The establishment of the Jewish Holy Days was given to Moses by God Himself. Its correlation with the human gestation period is remarkable.
Promoted to the Home Office
On April 19, 2006, Zola Levitt went home to be with God after a battle with lung cancer.
Zola grew up as an Old Covenant Jew, but came to believe that Jesus Christ is indeed the promised Messiah.
