You didn't grow under my heart - but in it"

Biblical Feasts Parallel the Gestation Period of a Baby


There are Seven Biblical Feasts that are to be observed by the Jewish people.

From the time a child is conceived to the time he is born, there are parallels to the Biblical Feasts that God gave to the nation of Israel when they came out of Egypt.

The Bible makes it clear that every child is a gift from God. A surprising discovery recently revealed that the Biblical Feasts parallel the gestation period of a baby. It seems, once again, the Almighty hid within His Word proof of divine inspiration and a token of His love for children.

1) FEASTS: In Exodus chapter 12 we find the "Passover Feast" instituted.

It was to
begin on the fourteenth day of the first month and repeat each year thereafter. During Passover the Jews place an egg, symbolizing new life, on the Passover table.

MEDICAL FACT: On the fourteenth day of the first month the mothers egg appears.

2) FEASTS: The "Feast of Unleavened Bread" must occur the very next night, on the 15th day of the month, or the feast process will fail.

MEDICAL FACT: Fertilization of the egg must occur within 24 hours or the fertilization process will fail.

3) FEASTS: The "Feast of Firstfruits" occurs next, on the Sunday during the week of Unleavened Bread. It can be from 2-6 days after the feast of Unleavened Bread and is called the Spring Planting of Seed.

MEDICAL FACT: The fertilized egg travels down the tube at its own pace taking anywhere from 2-6 days before it implants. This is the Planting of the Egg.

4) FEASTS: “Pentecost” comes 50 days later. That is the day the Israelites confirmed their covenant as the people of God. So with us, we are not complete in Christ, until we receive His Holy Spirit.

MEDICAL FACT: On the fiftieth day, the embryo shows arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet, toes, a head, eyes, etc. Around the fiftieth day, the embryo takes on the form of a human being.

5) FEASTS: The “Festival of Trumpet” occurred on the first day of the seventh month of the year.

MEDICAL FACT: The embryo at seven months: On the first day of the seventh month, the baby’s hearing is developed. For the first time, it can hear and distinguish sounds outside the womb. Hearing/Trumpets; Coincidence? I think not!

6) FEASTS: The “Day of Atonement” is celebrated on the tenth day of the seventh month. Blood is taken into the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle.

MEDICAL FACT: On the tenth day of the seventh month the production of red blood cells is taken over by the bone marrow-the inner sanctum of the babies’ tabernacle.

7) FEASTS: The “Feast of Tabernacles” follows on the 15th day of the seventh month. Jews celebrate God breathing the breath of life into Adam.

MEDICAL FACT: By the 15th day of the seventh month the child is capable of breathing air. He or she is a developed "tabernacle" and can be born. However, to achieve maximum strength the child should continue to grow inside its mother for another 80 days. It can thereafter be born and dedicated to the Lord.

FEASTS: 80 days later is the “Feast of DEDICATION.” The Feast of Dedication is better known today as Hanukah, which just so happens to last eight days. In Jewish customs, a baby boy is circumcised on the eighth day after birth.

  1. mmmmm...That IS very cool. Except that medical "fact" #1 doesn't take into account there are HUGE variations among women's cycles. FACT: I ovulate on day 8 of my cycle, making medical "Fact" #2 obsolete for me as well. I am pretty sure there are millions of other women out there who also don't fit the usual "day 14" pattern. Other than that, I agree, the parallels are very cool.

  2. Yeah I have a 38 day cycle on a good month, lol. But I thought it was a great look and I just wonder how many of us would have those cycles had we not had all kinds of toxins growing up.

    Be blessed

  3. Hi Linnea! So did you adopt all your children, or just your youngest? You are the opposite of us, all girls and one boy!
    We do cut holes in Jax jammies for his g-tube and monitor. I have friends that sew them all nice, I just cut a hole. I love fleece jammies, because they don't fray or anything. On his cotton jammies that I cut, I use fray stop around the edges so the holes don't get any bigger!

  4. Right, the fleece sleepers like the one he's wearing in the post don't fray at all! I'm not sure how my friends sew the cotton jammies. They don't usually fray for me, but the hole will stretch bigger if you don't put something around them.
