      Actually, there is much that Christ still has to fulfill that will occur with his second coming.  He has yet to fulfill all His Davidic promises to the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.  He has yet to take His reign for a thousand years on the Davidic throne in Jerusalem.  He has yet to take away the sins from the nation of Israel and cleanse the land.  He has yet to rule the nations.  Etc., etc., etc.  The Fall Feasts point to His second coming.

      There are several problems with the proposed day being the Feast of Tabernacles. The first would be the assumed date of the John the Baptists birth. Of course the author does say 'likely' and does not make it a firm timing. The date for John the Baptist is calculated based on the fact that John's father was a priest, who was a member of the order of Abiyah. There are 24 orders, and the orders serve in the Temple on rotation for 1 week. Since there are 24 orders, each order serves twice a year, plus all orders serve on especially busy Holy Days like the week of Passover. So, we have two approximate times when John's father served based on his order. And then, we do not know exactly how long it took to get home or for his wife to become pregnant.  The other issue would be some information we have about the birth of Jesus. There were shepherds tending their flocks in the hills. The area of Bethlehem is a arid region, and mild climate. In dry season everything turns brown and stops growing. During the dry season, shepherds do not take their sheep out into the hills, because there is nothing for the flocks to eat. The dry season is approximately from June/July thru October. The rainy season doesn't start until the beginning of November. So, at the time of the Feast of Tabernacles, it is at the end of a long dry season and no shepherds would be with their sheep in the hills. While Jesus did everything necessary for salvation and that work is complete, I believe Jesus will return (after the fullness of the Gentiles come in), all of the living children of Israel will see Him and be saved, Jesus will defeat all of the armies attacking Israel, and then reign as King from Jerusalem for 1000 year. After the 1000 year reign, the bound demons and people who did not accept Jesus will be judges and caste into the lake of fire. After which, the New Heaven and New Earth will come down.

      I agree with you in many respects. This subject concerns the power of his resurrection. He is not a priest on the earth. His priesthood began when he entered the true tabernacle in heaven. Of which the earthly worldly tabernacle was a mere shadow or pattern. As scripture says, if Christ is not raised you are still dead in your sins. His work did not cease when he died. Rather the power of his heavenly ministry began after he was raised.

      Q, I agree that there are certain Messianics that claim they keep the Mosaic Law.  However, like there are many types of Baptists (Free-Will, Independent, Southern, Primitive, etc.), there are many types of Messianics.  Some believe that they should actually go through all 613 commandments and pick out what should and should not be upheld, even to an extreme orthodox manner.  Some definitely don't even try to go there. Some believe the Messianic Jew has a different set of requirements regarding the Mosaic Law than does the Gentile Messianic.  It goes on and on to certain congregations and their differences.  So, when someone ask if I am Messianic, I ask them what do you mean? I need to know what they have come to fully or erroneously understand before I answer. I believe the biggest confusion comes with the word "law".  Our English translations are so inadequate because they use the word "law" for the law from which we have been freed.  YEA!  However, they use the word "law" for what is actually referred to as teachings.  We then erroneously conclude that because the word "law" is used, it is always negative, even when it refers to God teachings. Those teachings are our guidelines and to keep us on the straight and narrow.  I may even use some of the Mosaic Law as a guideline.  For instance, stealing.   Suppose my child stole from someone while spending the night with her friend.  I may want to look at Ex.22:7 as a guideline.  "...if the thief is caught, he should pay double."  Even though this verse does not specifically address the exact act, as I described, it may be a good lesson to my child for stealing.  Or, maybe I will use Pro.6:31 and make her pay back sevenfold.
