Now I want to share something, which, along with words of prophecy, confirms G-d’s being behind all of this and especially IN it!
The Lord had me fast for this particular event according to the following: begin the fast at sundown, September 4th, i.e. the end of Shabbat and the beginning of the week, and continue for 7 days, until sundown Sept. 11th, which is the end of Shabbat and the beginning of the second day of Rosh Hashanah. Observe Rosh Hashanah and pick up the fast again at sundown of the 12th until sundown of the 15th -- 3 days. The Lord further instructed me to go to the “Mikve”13 before Rosh Hashanah as a purifying outward act confirming the death of my old man and having died to sin, and to wear to the assignment a completely white outfit, with no print on it whatsoever14.
noname, who joined in the complete fast (of 7 and 3 days), was also told to wear a purely white outfit.
While looking at the calendar, the numbers of the days with their Scriptural, spiritual significance just leapt out at me: # 3 stands for divine perfection; # 7 stands for spiritual perfection; while adding the two together we have #10, which stands for perfection of divine order. Sandwiched between the 7 and the 3 stood this 1 great day, the day in which the trumpets sound and the blasts of the shofar are heard, and the gates of heaven are opened for the 10 Days of Awe. Because of the Dispersion Jews keep Rosh Hashanah for 2 days, so that all of Israel, Klal Yisrael, will observe this day together no matter in which country of exile. The one day I was to observe was from sundown Sept. 11th until sundown Sept. 12th, “Yom Teruah”.
The #1 as a cardinal number always denotes unity, and as an ordinal number it stands for primacy. The #1 excludes all others, and hence always stands for the only living G-d, the indivisible Holy One of Israel. Consequently, this assignment was from Him alone Who would move upon and through us.
Instead #2 affirms that there is a difference --- there is another. This difference may be for good or for evil. Hence, the #2 takes a two-fold coloring, according to the context.
It is the first number by which we can divide another, and therefore in all its uses we may trace this fundamental idea of division or difference. When the earth lay in the chaos which had overwhelmed it (Gen. 1:2), its condition was universal ruin and darkness. The second thing recorded in connection with the Creation was the introduction of a second thing --- Light; and immediately there was difference and division, for G-d DIVIDED the light from the darkness.
So the second day had division for its great characteristic (Gen. 1:6), “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it DIVIDE the waters from the waters.” Here we have Division connected with the second day.
This great spiritual significance is maintained throughout the Word of G-d15. For example in Ezekiel we read: “They shall teach my people the difference between the holy and the common, and show them how to distinguish between the unclean and the clean."16
This assignment was of G-d and would hasten His
next move. It would effect a separation, a division, a difference,
creating something new separated from the old, the common, the unclean,
the mediocre, the lukewarmness. G-d would do a NEW thing different
from what we have known until now! Immediately this word came to mind,
“Remember not the former things nor consider the things of old. Behold,
I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?”
