The Sum of It All part 2 Prophetic Feasts Pointing to Jesus
Published September 29, 2019 at 11:30 AM
The Lord gave Israel Holy Festivals or Feasts so that He could show them things to come. He wanted them to be ready for a Messiah that would become the Spotless Lamb, who would die for the sins of mankind. When He told them to celebrate The Holy Days of Passover, Unleavened Bread, and FirstFruits every year, on a specific date, in a specific way, He was prefiguring Christ's first coming, His Death, and Resurrection. Father wanted them to recognize His Love and provision for them so that they would experience His Love and Life. They missed the power of the Real Sacrifice, Jesus, even though He was and still is portrayed in those Spring Feasts! Jesus died on Passover, the same day and hour of the Passover Lamb. As the priest was presenting the sacrifice in the Temple, Jesus cried with a loud voice on the cross, "It is Finished" and right before the Priests' eyes, God ripped the Veil of the Holy of Holies apart from the top to the bottom. No longer would the blood of bulls or goats or lambs atone for their sins because the blood of the precious Lamb of God had been poured out and the way to God the Father forever opened by and through His Torn Flesh. The Feast of Pentecost, that begins the harvest, was fulfilled on that exact day and hour with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church. The harvest began with 3,000 coming to the Lord at Peter's sermon. The Fall Feasts have never yet been fulfilled prophetically. The Feasts of Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles have tremendous meaning and insight in Christ and coming events. All of Israel is, at the day of this writing, entering the 10 days of Awe, in preparation in this new year for the most Holy event of all, Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. Israel awaits the coming of the Messiah and this message will encourage you to see that His coming is at hand.
