You Have An Appointment with God

We have now entered the final Fall feast, the Feast of Tabernacles. This is the seventh feast and is calling all Jews and also Christians (which I like to call former Gentiles). Most people don’t know that the word “feast” is a wrong translation. The Hebrew word used means “appointment”. It makes a big difference to change from a big party, to an actual appointment with Yehovah.

These seven appointments are listed in Leviticus 23. There are really eight, if you include the Sabbath Day, designed to give God’s creation a day to rest and hang out with Him. Here is a quick outline of the seven appointments. (Here is a link to my radio interview where I spend 10 minutes on each appointment: Radio link ). The first four have already been fulfilled in the ministry of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).

  1. Passover/Pesach – blood of lamb on doorpost/Jesus Lamb of God.
  2. Unleavened Bread- no leaven symbolizing sin/Jesus was sinless.
  3. Firstfruits – celebrates the early harvest of wheat/Jesus raised from the dead.
  4. Pentecost/Shavuot – celebrates summer harvest with leavened bread/Jesus body of redeemed sinners.
  5. Trumpets/Yom Teruah – celebrates the end of harvest/Jesus Second Coming!
  6. Atonement/Yom Kippur – Day of repentance/Jesus pronounces us clean.
  7. Tabernacles/Sukkot – Looking back to tabernacle in the wilderness/Looking forward to our eternal dwelling place with our Father Yehovah and Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah.

“In addition to the Sabbath, these are Yehovah’s appointed festivals, the official days for holy assembly that are to be celebrated at their proper times each year.” Leviticus 23:4 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
