The prophetic nature of the Feasts of YAHUAH

    Many Christians who attend the Sunday church fail to understand the prophetic nature of the Feasts of YAHUAH set forth in Leviticus 23. When reading the gospels and the epistles of the Brit Chadasha (the Messianic Writings aka the New Testament), the reader will come accross certain events in the time of MASHIACH (Messiah) and if that person does not have a Scriptural Hebrew worldview or an understanding of the books that precede the New Testament, he will be confused.

    Should believers in Mashiach practice the feasts? Or should Christians practice the fertility feast of Easter. Just a question.

    I should like to hear some thoughts on the prophetic nature of the Shabbath. i have heard many talks about the other feast but little on this one.

    According Paul's writings, the historical account is recorded for our instruction (see Romans 15; 1 Corinthians 10).

    Since the pattern we are to conform to is drawn via the TaNaKh, the proper question should be,
    "What was the result, or consequence, of Ancient Israel's practice and observation of fertility feasts?"
    (see Hosea 10; Judges 3; 1 Kings 18:19-21; 2 Kings 21:1-9; also Exodus 34:13-14; Deuteronomy 12:3-9; 16:21-22)

    Shalom.

    The Shabbath as we know is the 7th day. YAH has given us a pattern in scripture. He worked for 6 days, and on the 7th day he rested. Scripture also tells us that with YAHUAH 1000 years are as a day and a day is as a 1000 years.

    One of the prophetic aspects of Shabbath is that the 1000 year reign of MASHIACH will be a Shabbath rest. I believe the Father has showed in this pattern, his prophetic work.

    Shalom brother.

    I find that the opposite that the church might understand the "spiritual representation" or the prophetic meaning of the feasts, but fail to see the practical needs of keeping the feasts. I just had a long chat online with a person who I have played scrabble with for years. She is a Christian and asked me how was my Thanksgiving. That led to me saying we didn't do Thanksgiving but did cook the traditional foods for our Sabbath meals. oh you keep Jewish feasts? uh no, I keep the feasts of Yahuah. It was a lot of her telling me that the Spirit told her when she sinned and she did it every day but the new covenant...blah...blah... blah. I asked her if she kept Easter this past spring. Yes. Then I asked her why the Holy Spirit had not told her that all the rituals of Easter came from the worship of a fertility goddess named Ishtar?

    She said we would take this up later. I said I love u. and she said she did too.

    Maybe we will.

    Added 11/27 well, I don't think she wants to discuss this any more. We are really long time online friends who chatted for years about everything but our religion and only in the last year did she bring this up to me. I think she wants me to quit "trying to gain my salvation by my works" and just trust the holy spirit to tell me what is sin and then thank Jesus for saving me from it. Which is what understanding I had at five years old. Now at 63, I am not sure that even if I could perfectly on the level she needs ,explain my understanding to her that it would change anything. Am I being a bad watchman by letting it go? Will her "blood" be on my hands? pondering this.

    All you can do is in the love of MASHIACH share the whole word with her.

    If she does not want to hear or talk to you about it, then you need to pray that the Holy Spirit will open her eyes to the whole counsel of YAH.

    They don't understand that we are not talking about salvation. Salvation is by belief in YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH alone apart from the works of the Torah. We are talking about obedience and blessing and worshipping our Heavenly Father THE WAY HE HAS INSTRUCTED US TO WORSHIP HIM. Not according to Christian or Jewish Tradition.

    In my opinion Betchevy, her blood is not on your hands.

    Blessings to you and Shalom.

    I have had the knowledge of the Feasts of the Lord for fifty-eight years.

    The first two have been fulfilled by Jesus Christ, minutely in every detail. He was and is the Passover Lamb. This was fulfilled by His death on the Cross. He poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit on the Church fifty days later,thus fulfilling the Feast of Pentecost.

    He has not, at this point in time, fulfilled the greatest feast of all, the Feast of Tabernacles. But He will, minutely, in every detail, prior to His Second Coming.

    The pertinent section of Scripture is John 7:2, 37-39. And the Feast of the Jews, the Feast of Tabernacles was near. And in the last great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If any anyone thirsts, let Him come to Me, and drink. The one believing into Me, as the Scripture said, Out of his belly will flow rivers of living water. See John 4:14 But He said this about the Spirit, whom the ones believing into Him, were about to receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

    James 5:7 Therefore, brothers, be patient until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit, being patient over it until it may receive the early and latter rain.

    Long patience! 2,000 years. Why? He is awaiting the FRUIT harvest (oil and wine). [The Church has received the grain harvests of barley (Passover) and wheat (Pentecost).

    At this time Jesus will fulfill the Book of Revelation precisely, as He did the Gospels, (Passover), and the Book of Acts, (Pentecost)!

    Not practice the feasts. Embrace them. Embrace their reality. Allow the Old Testament shadow to give way to New Testament fulfillment, reality. Specifically the one remaining feast scheduled for fulfillment: Tabernacles!

    Dump Easter.
