Tares - Jewish Feasts (LG22)

Exo 23:17 "Three times in the year all your males shall appear before the Lord GOD."

Without the temple of God this cannot be fulfilled, signifying the abolishment of the Jewish feasts and the end of Judaism. Thank God that we are Christians and not Jews.

Jewish Feasts Fulfilled Passover

Lev 23:5 'On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the LORD'S Passover.'_

Our Lord's crucifixion was the Passover Lamb.

Feast of unleavened bread

Lev 23:6 'And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the LORD; seven days you must eat unleavened bread.'

Our Lord was the Bread of life, the pure Word of God.

Feast of first fruit (weeks)

Lev 23:15 "Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the LORD."

The outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost was the fulfillment of this feast of first fruit.

Jewish Feast yet to be fulfilled

Blowing of trumpets

Lev 23:23-25 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.'"

The appearing of Jesus at Rapture after the last trump will be the fulfillment of the blowing of trumpets.

1Cor 15:51-52 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Brethren, as Christians we are looking forward to His glorious appearing. We love the Lord and we do not need to wait till the seventh month to celebrate the blowing of the trumpets.

All feasts after Rapture are meant for the Jews. Brethren, if you want to celebrate these feasts with the Jews, then you must be left behind with damnation awaiting you.

The Day of Atonement

Lev 23:26-27 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: "Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD."

Afflicting the souls or mourning (repentance) of all the Israelites for the One (Jesus) they pierced. All Israel will then saved. (Rom 11:26-27)

The Feast of Tabernacle

Lev 23:41 "You shall keep it (Feast of Tabernacles) as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month."

This will be the feast at the second coming of Jesus to establish His Millennium Rule.

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

We, who are taken up at Rapture, will be ruling with Him for a thousand years. Sorry for those left behind at Rapture by following the laws and feasts and not 'grace'.

Rom 7:8-11 But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead,  I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died. And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death. For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.
