FEASTS OF THE LORD - OVERVIEW

"God orders Feast Celebrated Forever" Ex. 12:14

The 7 Feasts of the Lord are to celebrated in light of the New Testament. Leviticus 23 lays out the principles of God’s redemptive plan for mankind, and is the foundation upon which ALL of scripture is based. These 7 Feasts are also the prophecies related to God’s calendar of redeeming grace for all mankind. Just as Jesus fulfilled the prophecies related to His first coming in the first 4 four feasts, Jesus is about to fulfill the 5 th & 6 th feasts of Trumpets and Atonement. The 7 th and last feast, called the Feast of Tabernacles, will be fulfilled at a later time after the Millennial Kingdom.

Jesus rebuked the Pharisees saying:

“O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky, but you can not discern the signs of the times”  Mat. 16:16:3.

HISTORICAL PROPHETIC & NUMEROLOGICAL

Numerical biblical sequences are a type of spiritual legos, or building blocks of meaning, much like hieroglyphics, and as sequences of hieroglyphics are portrayed. In other words, individual typological meanings represented by numbers, then combined into sequences of compounded meanings derived by the combined numbers. These individual or combined sequences of numbers are then more fully developed to represent a compounded set of meanings much like compound words, for example: Pentecost; Fiftieth Day.

Development of the meaning for basic individual numbers are derived from scripture.

PROPHECY DATE vs. "A SEASON" Of EVENTS

WE ARE EXPECTED TO

RECOGNIZE THE SEASONS / YEARS DESCRIBED BY PROPHECY

BUT NOT KNOW THE DAY Or HOUR

OF OUR LORD’S RETURN !

"Of that day and hour know no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."

However, Jesus rebuked those who did not anticipate the

Season of His Coming”:

Jesus said to the Pharisees : “… Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannotdiscern the Signs of the Times ” (Matt. 16:3).

FEASTS OF FIRST FRUITS / EASTER & FEAST OF WEEKS / PENTECOST

The Feast of First Fruits / Easter always falls on the 16th day (Sunday) of the first biblical month called Nissan and is a fulfillment of God's promised redemptive plan as prophesied.  Elohim, used over 2500 times in Scripture as a description of God was first used in Genesis 1:1, then again by Abraham in his answer to Isaac: "God Himself will provide a lamb" Gen.22:10.  Both Scriptures hint at the Second Person of the Trinity, as expressed by the name Elohim; a singular God with a plurality of majesty.  Th completion of prophecy concerning the third Person of the Trinity was fulfilled 50 days after Passover at the summer Feast of Weeks / Pentecost.

ELOHIM

ELOHIM aka "LORD" Etymology

Elohim as a compound word, meaning a singular God with a plurality of expressed majesty; i.e. Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God the Father, a Triune, but singular God.  Elohim is used over 2500 times in Scripture starting at Genesis 1:1.  God manifests Himself in three personifications; or persons, i.e. “Divine Essences”.   Therefore, when we refer to “Jesus in the Feasts” we are referring to God as One Being with a plurality of form:  Jesus the Person, the Holy Spirit and God the Father (Echad).

8.4

FEAST OF WEEKS aka SHAVOUT or PENTECOST Class Syllabus of Scriptures

An in-depth Etymological, Historical, and Hermeneutical study on the Feast of Weeks aka Shavuot / Pentecost.  Study includes the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and their empowerment to proclaim the Gospel.  Pentecost, the 4th and last Feast of the Lord, is typologically fulfilled in Jesus’ 1st Parousia Coming, which sets the stage for the methodology of His Second coming.  Just as His Spirit was given at Pentecost, so also will be His Coming and staying Presence. It will also be at His return during the Feast of Trumpets, through to the Day of the Lord and His Wrath / Judgmen, unto the Feast of Atonement, culminating with Jesus' rule and reign during Jubilee, aka the Millennial Kingdom or Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

CESSATIONIST THEOLOGY

Gifts of Holy Spirit vs Cessationist Theology

“And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers?  Are all workers of miracles?  Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But covet earnestly the best gifts (Of loving one another), and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.”  I Cor. 12: 28-31

9.1

7 FEASTS OF THE LORD PROPHETIC HERMENEUTICS

The symbolic sacrificial Lamb at the Feast of Passover a.k.a. Crucifixion prophetically foreshadowed Jesus’ sacrificial death for the forgiveness of our sins.

Note, without Passover and the other feasts, there would have been no biblical basis for theological development regarding forgiveness of sins and God's redemptive plan.

Likewise consider the next 3 feasts, which were also satisfied by Jesus 1st coming: The Feast of Unleavened Bread, symbolic of Jesus’ sinless nature, or the Feast of First Fruits a.k.a. Easter where He is the "first fruits" of God’s grace,  making available to us the gift of salvation, through our belief in His resurrection and deity.

At the Feast of Weeks; a.k.a. Pentecost the gift / empowerment of the Holy Spirit was given for them to be witnesses. The Feast of Weeks is also called the "second harvest - of first fruits" for those who believe.

Effectively, without the concept of redemption represented by the feasts, there would have been no theological foundational development for the entire Bible.

A Syllabus of both Old and New Testament Scriptures on the Feast of Passover, one of the 7 Israel Jewish Biblical Festivals, aka the 7 Feasts of the Lord per Lev. 23, provides prophetic evidence of fulfilled prophecy.

Consequently, these 7 Feasts are the foundation upon which all of Scripture is based.

An in-depth study of the period of repentance starting with the Feast of Trumpets / Rosh Hashanah and culminating with the Feast of Atonement aka Day of Judgment / Yom Kippor, unto the Year of Jubilee aka Millennial Kingdom aka Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

9.5

YEAR OF JUBILEE

REVELATION  19:

"The bride has prepared herself, becoming pure & holy for her bridegroom. '…for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.'" Revelation 19:7

To understand the Year of Jubilee, one must first be familiar with the Sabbatical Year, which is observed every seventh year (Ex. 23:11 ; Lev. 25:20; Deut. 15:9; Neh. 10:31).

The Sabbatical Year is also known as the Year of Release, because farming and debt payments were released (discontinued) for the year (Deut. 15:1-2; 31:10). This was initiated at the closing of the Feast of Atonement.

Year of Jubilee’s timing was to years (50) what the timing of Feast of Weeks (Shavuot / Pentecost) is to days (50). The Feast of Weeks (Shavuot / Pentecost) occurs on the 50 th day; i.e. the day after seven weeks, plus 1 day after Passover. The Year of Jubilee occurs every 50 th year; the year after seven Sabbatical years (49 years) according to Lev. 25:8-11.

The Year of Jubilee begins at the end of 7 Sabbatical years of 7 years, and at the end of the Feast of Atonement / Yom Kippur per Lev. 25:9. Jewish historian, Josephus believed that the word denoted ‘liberty’ (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, 3.12.3).

10.2

FEAST OF TABERNACLES aka SUKKOT

To fully understand the Feast of Tabernacles, one must first begin with God's 4th Commandment regarding the Sabbath "to keep it holy". 

The Feast of Tabernacles begins five days after the Feast of Atonement, aka Yom Kippur.  The Biblical Festival of Tabernacles is instituted in Leviticus 23:34 and is also known as Sukkot in Hebrew.  The feast begins on the 7 th biblical month of Tishri, on the 15 th day during the full moon, in our month of September or October.  It is a transition from the most solemn of holidays focused on repentance during the Feast of Trumpets to the Feast of Atonement, the most joyous of feasts.

10.3

SABBATH / SHABBAT

"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.” Exodus 20:8-11 (4th Commandment). 

To fully understand the Feasts, one must first understand the full meaning and implications of the Sabbath as a time of oneness with God.

10.4

HOLINESS

HOLY vs. SET - APART Hermeneutics

"Be Ye Holy for I Am Holy" Lev. 11:24

10.5

TEMPLE AND TEMPLE MOUNT HISTORY

Mount Moriah is identified in Genesis 22:1-18 as the area where Abraham obediently offered up his son for sacrifice in approximately 2,000 B.C.  There God provided Himself a ram for an atonement sacrificial offering, which also symbolized God providing His only son Jesus for the forgiveness of sins. This mount was later to become the Temple Mount some 1,000 years later, the site of Solomon’s temple.

10.6

EZEKIEL'S TEMPLE

Ps. 11:4

“The LORD [is] in His holy  temple , the LORD'S throne [is] in heaven: …

A Heavenly Temple was shown to the apostle John in a vision as recorded in Revelation.  Chapters 20 and 21 describe the same river of living water flowing out from the throne of God and a physical description of the heavenly ‘Temple Mount’ as described by Ezekiel.

10.7

PURSUIT OF HOLINESS

This is the theme for the book of Leviticus, especially the 7 Feasts of the Lord per Lev. 23.  Holiness is associated with the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which signifies to be without sin; i.e. Jesus.  “… you shall be holy; for I am holy.” Lev. 11:44

Leaven (yeast) is used to ferment (spoil) wheat to produce oxygen to puff up the gluten in bread dough. Just as it takes only a little leaven to spoil the whole lump of bread dough, so does a little sin begin to spoil & soil our spirit in the eyes of God, until we become completely under the control (spoiled / fermented) of sin.
