THE FEASTS OF THE TRUMPETS - THE PASSOVER
Christ after the Last Supper was crucified on the exact day of the Passover, He was the Pascal Lamb. On the third day after the crucifixion was the feast of the firstfruits, Sunday, representing a risen Christ. In-between those two feast days was the feast of Unleavened Bread.
This was an important subject, revealed to the Bride of Christ, in the end-time, by the Seventh Angel of Rev 10:7 (William Branham). If you can except it.
THE RENTING OF THE VAIL
When Christ was crucified, the vail of the temple was rent from top to bottom. Up to this point it would mean death for anyone outside of the High Priest at the appointed place and the proper time to go in through his vail (Lev 16:2). This did away with all the keeping of holy days, and "church" rituals in order to be saved.
The renting of this vail gave access to God for the Believer Priest, equally with Christ our High Priest.
Christ was Crucified again in our day, His Word, by the Gentile church (Indictment).
Was there a vail rent?
Yes - a denominational vail.
THE DENOMINATIONAL SPIRIT
Why do I preach so much against a denominational spirit among us as believers? It is because of past experiences that effected me from a boy, being in the Assembly of God church and then the Independents.

Notice then the preparation for His promised-land people. Notice what He did. First, He had a people that He had made a land for them. He had prepared a land for them. And now He sent down there a preparation for it, for the promised-land people. It was only for those who were predestinated to that promised land, Bride day. And how He done it, He sent a prophet with a message, identified it by a Pillar of Fire, and gave a token that they could rest assure that it was right. That's right. It was her consolation.
Israel, coming out of Egypt then, was a type. This is the antitype, of the Church coming out of the denominations. Now, not all denominate. I mean the Bride. Some people, there is some of the independents just as bad as the denominationals, sometimes worse than.
I'm talking about the applied Token. The Token agrees with every Word. See? It's got to, because It is the Word. It's the Life that was in the Word. "My Words are Spiritual; They are Life," said Jesus. [John 6:63]
UNQUOTE - Now we see plainly, the fullness of the Word, which is Christ, was crucified when Christ was made plain by the message that came. Our Pascal Lamb (the fullness of the Word) called us out of denominationalism.
