This Scriptural Calendar study shows you how to celebrate the Heavenly Father’s Holy Feast Days.
The Gospel story that we’ve been taught is that deity came to dwell among us when Messiah was supernaturally born of a virgin; He lived a sinless life; He died for our sins as the Spotless Lamb; He was dead in the grave; He rose again on the third day; He caused the Holy Spirit to be poured out on His followers; He will return for His Ekklesia of saints; He will make judgment, and He will marry His bride.
Amazingly, the enemy has misled many people into believing that the Father’s Holy Feast Days are for the Jews and don’t apply to ‘New Testament believers.’
The truth is that the Heavenly Father’s Holy Feast Days are divine appointments which Messiah is fulfilling to redeem the set-apart saints.
Here are the four feasts that our Messiah has fulfilled.
The feast of Passover points to the Spotless Lamb, whose blood was shed for our sins and caused the wrath of His Father to pass over us.
The feast of Unleavened Bread points to the Messiah’s sinless life, as leaven is
a picture of sin in the Bible. He was dead in the grave on this day.
The feast of Firstfruits points to the Messiah’s resurrection on the third day as the first fruits of the righteous.
The feast of Pentecost represents Him pouring out His Father’s Spirit on His followers.
Here are the fall feast days which are yet to be fulfilled by our Messiah:
The feast of Trumpets represents His return for His bride when trumpets are blown and the elect are caught up to be with Messiah.
The feast of Atonement occurs ten days after the Feast of Trumpets, when Messiah will make judgment.
The feast of Tabernacles occurs fifteen days after the Feast of Trumpets when we celebrate the wedding feast and dwell with Messiah and His Father forever.
Do you see how Messiah is fulfilling His Father’s divine appointment to redeem you into the kingdom?
Do you see how the enemy has hidden the full Gospel story from us? My pastors never taught me about them.
They are not ‘Jewish feast days’ as some people proclaim, but they are our Heavenly Father’s holy convocations.
Leviticus 23:2 says, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
The word ‘feast’ is translated from the Hebrew word ‘moed,’ which means appointment. The word ‘convocations’ is translated from the Hebrew word ‘miqra,’ which points to a public meeting, a rehearsal, an assembly, a calling.
The Israelites observance of the rituals of the Holy Feast Days pointed to the sinless High Priest, who would come to fulfill them.
Messiah traveled to Jerusalem during the Holy Feast Days to observe them and because many Jews would come into Jerusalem so that He could speak before them.
Messiah came to fulfill the law perfectly, as only He could, as all men sin and fall short of the glory of Yah the Heavenly Father.
That doesn’t mean that the Father’s declarations in the Old Testament have been cast aside. Rather, Messiah came to teach us how to obey His Father’s commandments, not for salvation, but out of love and reverence for the Heavenly Father.
The Apostle John reminded about us of this several times:
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 1 John 5:2
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Revelation 12:17
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Revelation 14:12
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. Revelation 22:14
We are saved by faith in Messiah’s atoning work for our sins and we strive to obey the Father’s commandments out of love for Him and our beloved Messiah.
Some believers proclaim that the Holy Feast Days were nailed to the cross, so we don’t have to observe them.
But that is impossible because Messiah fulfilled the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of First Fruits and the Day of Pentecost after His death on the cross. And there are still three Holy Feast Days to be fulfilled.
What was nailed to the cross was the written record of our sins, which condemned us to death.
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. Colossians 2:13-14
Messiah fulfilled the demands of the law as our sinless High Priest and He adamantly proclaimed that He did not come to put away His Father’s Torah.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:17-18
Since Messiah fulfilled the law as our sinless High Priest, we don’t have to carry out the ceremonial laws, such as sacrificing a Passover lamb.
But we should strive to celebrate the Holy Feast Days which represent the true Gospel of our faith.
I created a new study called The True Gospel Story Decoded, which shows how Messiah is fulfilling His Father’s seven Holy Feast Days to redeem the set-apart saints.
It shows you what you can do on each Holy Feast Day to focus on how Messiah is fulfilling it for your redemption.
