Do you ever wonder what it’ll be like when Jesus returns?
“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
-Revelation 22:12-13 (NASB)
Blowing trumpets, fasting, praying, camping, dancing, laughing, crying. If you want to understand about what these actions have in common, you must first understand the season. August to October is a busy time of the year for one group specifically.
Jews, Jewish people, or God’s people.
This time of year is more than just Autumn, with leaves turning and people donning warmer clothes. It is a time of preparation.
For what? The Fall feasts of the Lord!
- The Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah)
- The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur)
- The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot)
Three separate feasts–one common theme: the final coming of the Lord, our Savior.
“These are the feasts of the Lord, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.” -Leviticus 23:4 (KJV)
As Christ followers, I feel like these feasts are just as important to us as we await the second coming of Jesus (Yeshua). This season, my family got a little taste of the spiritual applications of these special days and I know I will never live the same.
I want to take you along to discover why the God of the universe declared these holy days and how Jesus has a vital role in them. For the next few weeks, I’ll be going into more detail of the history, the culture, and the spiritual application of these feasts.
I’d love for you to join me!
By the end, I hope you’ll gain a better understanding of the holy days God personally gave to Moses to teach His people, and how we, as Christians, can still apply those truths today.
Shalom and God bless!
