**Judaism calls this month Tishri which is not in the Hebrew Scriptures.
Shadows of " things to come "

"Patterns, Signs, Shadows of good things to come"
It was said:
Lev.16 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year ( Day of Atonement )
It was explained:
Heb.10 For the law having a shadow of good things to come , and "not the very image of the things", can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
 Wherefore when He cometh into the world, He saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not,
**Pss.40  Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire ; mine ears hast thou opened : burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
**back to Heb.10
but a body hast thou prepared me: ( verse 10, body of Yeshua, a person )
Heb.10 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
**Pss.40  Then said I , Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
**back to Heb.10
 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God.
He taketh away the first ( example, pattern, animal sacrifice ), that he may establish the second ( offering of the body of Yeshua the Messiah / Jesus Christ once for all.)
 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Yeshua the Messiah / Jesus Christ once for all .
 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
 But this man ( Messiah ), after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever , sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
**Pss.110  The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
**back to Heb.10
 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
** This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Heb.8  For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Jer.31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
**back to Heb.10
 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to "enter into the holiest" by the blood of Yeshua / Jesus,
 By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
 And having an high priest over the house of God;
 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith , having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water .
**Lev.16 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.  Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:
 And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel.
**Lev.16 He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water , and so put them on.
 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the people.
 And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.
 And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water , and afterward he shall come into the camp.
**back to Heb.10
23: Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering;
(for he is faithful that promised;)
24: And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together , as the manner of some is;
**back to Heb.10
but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see
the day approaching.
26: For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, ( Messiah is not going to die for you again )
27: But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28: He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
 Of how much sorer punishment , suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the ( New ) covenant , ( Heb. 8:8, Jer. 31:31) wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
Exod. 24  And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient. And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the ( Old )covenant , which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.
**back to Heb.10
30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord . And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
John 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
Isaiah 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
Romans 12:19: Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine ; I will repay, saith the Lord .
Deuteronomy 32:35 To me belongeth vengeance , and recompence ; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
Hebrews 10:30 For we know him that hath said', Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense , saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
Nahum 1:2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take'> vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
**back to Heb.10
31: It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32: But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
33: Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.
34: For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
35: Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
36: For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
37: For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
38: Now the just shall live by faith : but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
**back to Heb.10
39: But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
Some patterns, examples, shadows.....
some are in the future tense after the resurrection of Messiah
Colossians 2:16: Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday , or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17: Which are a shadow of "things to come"; but the body is of Messiah / Christ.
Heb.10 For the law having a shadow of good things to come...
Exod.25 According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.
Heb.8 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things , as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
Heb.9 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
Rev.21 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Num.8 And this work of the candlestick was of beaten gold, unto the shaft thereof, unto the flowers thereof, was beaten work: according unto the pattern which the LORD had shewed Moses, so he made the candlestick.
Josh.22 Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should so say to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say again, Behold the pattern of the altar of the LORD, which our fathers made, not for burnt offerings, nor for sacrifices; but it is a witness between us and you.
2Kgs.16 And king Ahaz went to Damascus to meet Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria, and saw an altar that was at Damascus: and king Ahaz sent to Urijah the priest the fashion of the altar, and the pattern of it , according to all the workmanship thereof.
1Chr.28 Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat,  And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the LORD, and of all the chambers round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things:
 And for the altar of incense refined gold by weight; and gold for the pattern of the chariot of the cherubims, that spread out their wings, and covered the ark of the covenant of the LORD.  All this, said David, the LORD made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern .
Ezek.43 Thou son of man, shew the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern.

We are not just observing "Days', "Months", "Weeks" & "Years" without understanding. We are observing these fall Holydays and the Feast of Tabernacles in the 7th month ( Sukkot ) because they all speak to us in the true pattern and shadow of the Messiah's second coming!
