O Judah, keep your appointed feasts…
Nahum 1:15 All of God’s biblical feasts are prophetic with prophetic messages. Nothing is random with the Lord; everything carries a deeper meaning.
To understand this deeper meaning we must consider these questions; what is the Holy Spirit’s message through these feasts at this time and season?
When we look at the representations of the feasts, they prophetically point to what is to come. We have seen that, prophetically, Yeshua already fulfilled the First Feasts. The “Final Feasts” have yet to be fulfilled.
Rosh Hashanah or Feast of Trumpets is coming up soon and is the first of the Fall Feasts or Final Feasts. We will be exploring what this Feast represents and ask the questions, why Trumpets and what do they come to announce?
Don’t miss the teaching “The Prophetic Mystery of the Feast of Trumpets” in our next letter.
Every time I have an opportunity to be in the Galilee, I often reflect on Yeshua’s times of preparations before the feasts.
Galilee was Yeshua’s favorite place, the one to which He always returned. However, when the time would come to celebrate a biblical feast, Yeshua would always go from Galilee to Jerusalem.
Each time a festive season was near, Yeshua would speak with His disciples and tell them He would be leaving Capernaum (the HQ of his ministry) to go up to Jerusalem to celebrate the upcoming biblical feast.
When speaking of the biblical feasts, it’s important to remember there are two seasons: Feasts of Firsts (Pesach – Passover & Shavuot – Feast of Pentecost), and then there are the Final Feasts, those marking the completion of things.
We are three weeks away from entering into a season of High Holidays — the biblical feasts of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).
Although many beautiful traditions and customs developed around these feasts, our focus today will be on the prophetic aspects of the biblical feasts.
