Prophetic Calendar: The Feasts of Israel - Jill Shannon - Google Книги

Even those who would deny the Bible still follow a seven day week. The pattern was set in motion at the creation. God created the heavens and the earth in six days and rested on the seventh day, man created in his image was use the 7-day unit as a division in time. On this day Israel was forbidden to work, since the nation was to model the Lord to the nations.

Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. The Sabbath was to be specifically set aside from the other six days of the week. On this day all types of work, travel was to be strictly restricted, this was a day set aside to honor the Lord. Sabbath candles are lit on Friday at sundown in the observant Jewish house by the mother. The Father then pours the wine and recites the Kiddush, prayer of sanctification, over the cup of wine.

The Feasts of Israel

At the Sabbath there is also a special dinner along with Hallah bread served with a white table cloth. This instills the importance of the Sabbath in generations to come as the children grow, the meaning and sanctification of this day are instilled in the hearts and minds of the family. The Sabbath begins on Friday Evening and ends on Saturday evening, at the closing of the Sabbath there is a Havdalah ceremony separation. The purpose is to separate the holy from the secular.

A cup of wine is filled to overflowing demonstrating the joy of the Sabbath. The cup is held in the right hand with the following blessing recited: Then a blue and white braded candle is lit as the Sabbath draws to a close with a blessing recited over it. The Sabbath is a time of remembrance in the Jewish house, where the Lord is the focus over the secular. The Hebrew word for month is Hodesh the same word used for moon.

The English word for Month is derived from the word Moon. The solemn assembly day of Trumpets was a reminder of the need for constant, ongoing repentance. The Day of Atonement was also a solemn assembly day a day of rest and introspection. What the Jewish people did not seem to realize is that all of the feasts were also symbolic types. In other words, they were prophetic in nature, each one pointing in a unique way to some aspect of the life and work of the promised Messiah.

Jesus was crucified on the day of preparation for the Passover, at the same time that the lambs were being slaughtered for the Passover meal that evening. Jesus was resurrected on this very day, which is one of the reasons that Paul refers to him in I Corinthians Pointed to the great harvest of souls, both Jew and Gentile, that would come into the kingdom of God during the Church Age.

The long interval of three months between Harvest and Trumpets pointed to the current Church Age, a period of time that was kept as a mystery to the Hebrew prophets in Old Testament times. That leaves us with the three fall feasts which are yet to be fulfilled in the life and work of the Messiah. Because Jesus literally fulfilled the first four feasts and did so on the actual feast days, I think it is safe to assume that the last three will also be fulfilled and that their fulfillment will occur on the actual feast days.

We cannot be certain how they will be fulfilled, but my guess is that they most likely have the following prophetic implications:. Points to the Rapture when the Messiah will appear in the heavens as a Bridegroom coming for His bride, the Church. The Rapture is always associated in Scripture with the blowing of a loud trumpet I Thessalonians 4: Points to the day of the Second Coming of Jesus when He will return to earth.

One final note about the feasts.

The last feast, Tabernacles, is related to rest. It is the most joyous feast of the year. It looks to the present in celebration of the completion of the hard labor of the agricultural cycle. This rhythm is repeated over and over in the Scriptures, as illustrated in the chart below. According to the view most frequently expressed in the Talmud, there would be 6, years of human toil and strife followed by 1, years of peace.

This Millennial Sabbath would be the period of the Messianic kingdom during which time the Messiah would reign in person over all the world from Jerusalem Isaiah Revelation 20 confirmed this deduction by stating six times that the reign would last a thousand years. The concept of the Millennium in the book of Revelation is therefore nothing new.

The concept is rooted in the creation week of Genesis.

The Seven Feasts of Israel

It is reaffirmed in the week of feasts of Israel six feasts related to sin and toil leading up to a sabbath feast of rest. As you can see from the chart below, we are near the end of the 6, years which the Jewish Rabbis believed would usher in the Millennial kingdom. We are standing on the threshold of the Sabbath Millennium. Yeshua is coming soon!
