Missing out on the blessings:
Most Christians are unaware of the special and powerful season we are in. For me, this is a tragedy which must be corrected.
You see, from the month of September, which lasts until mid-October, the Great Festivals of the Lord take place (Leviticus 23).
These are feasts, rehearsals, practices that are going on and have been going on since Israel’s time in Egypt, and during the wilderness experience (Exodus 12; Leviticus 23; Numbers 9:27, 10:10, & 23; Deuteronomy 16:1-8).
The special feasts of the Lord are called Moedim (strong’s #’s 4150) or appointed times which would be rehearsed every year at the exact times give to Moses, by the LORD. Let me repeat this, these special and holy convocations were originally instituted by the LORD. The Israelites and every foreigner living within the borders of Israel had to observe these Holy Festivals or rehearsals.
There are seven feasts. We have four in the spring. We have three in the fall.Os Roca
4 done, 3 to go:
Four were fulfilled or came to pass with Jesus’ actions on the cross (Passover), His perfect, sinless life (Unleavened Bread), and His resurrection (First Fruits), in the exact sequence and order in the Feasts Calendar dates.
We still have three Festivals, the Great Fall High Holy Days, to go. They will be fulfilled by Jesus at the time of His second Coming, in the exact order of events and Feasts Calendar dates.
So this week, and next week, scratch that, started this past Monday (Sept. 6th) with Yom Teruah, which has unfortunately been changed since the Jewish time in Babylon as they were held captive. This unfortunate thing that was changed to a New Year, was done with the Babylonian influenced start of their New Year in the Fall.
The Jewish New Year is not Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year starts in the first month of the Hebrew calendar during March-April.
This festival of Trumpets was to be held in the seventh month of the original Hebrew calendar, counting from March-April, to September-October, where the 7th month of Tishri usually begins.
You can check the links that I have made in previous posts below.
This Trumpet Festival lasts two days, and continues for a period of 10 days, is known as the Days of Awe. These Days of Awe include Yom Kippur or Feast of Atonement. Yom Kippur or Atonement starts on the 10th day of the 7th month in the original Hebrew calendar given by God to Moses.
This means that we are in the midst of this period.Os Roca
Time for introspective prayer:
It is a time for people to take a look within. But here’s a difference between how Christians should view these days compared to how the Jewish people see themselves Celebrating these Feasts or Festivals or Moedim.
Whereas the Jewish people see themselves as making up for their past sins during this year, or atoning for their yearly sins, by doing good deeds; Christians have to take a look at what they have done and ask for forgiveness through our LORD and Savior Jesus or Yeshua the Messiah of the world.
You see, for Christians, since we believe that Jesus, the Jewish Carpenter from Galilee, came to earth, and fulfilled every single prophecy concerning Messiah’s First Advent or First Coming. Jesus also came to fulfill the Spring Feasts of the Lord. These feasts consisted of Passover, Unleavened Bread, First fruits, 50 days after Passover, Pentecost see above links.
For Christians, the meaning of all the Feasts should be a constant reminder that Jesus fulfilled the Passover by Providing Himself as the lamb sacrifice, who would die for Israel’s, and the world’s sins. His blood of the Passover fulfilled the Passover lamb without blemish prophecy in Exodus 12, and Leviticus 23.
Again, Jesus also fulfilled the meaning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, by living a perfect, sinless life. Jesus then, fulfilled the meaning of the First Fruits Holy day, by being the first Person to rise from the dead on His own, by His own power. Since he was the First to resurrect, He has made a way for Christians to also be part of that resurrection (1st Corinthians 15:20-23; James 1:18; Revelation 14:4).
Now we wait for the Fall Holy Days to be once again fulfilled by Jesus the Messiah, on His Second Coming or Second Advent. This is the reason why all Christians should take note, take part, and take serious these Feasts, or Festivals or Moedim of the LORD…Happy High Holy Days of the LORD.
