Our God Word today is FEASTS. Last week we talked about Signs or Tokens. The word feasts is actually in the same scripture reference that we looked at before.
Genesis 1:14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years.
The word ‘seasons’ in this verse refers to feasts or appointed times.
This is the first reference, but it is not the primitive root.
Strong’s # 4150 from 3259 ; properly, an appointment, i.e. a fixed time or season; specifically, a festival; conventionally a year; by implication, an assembly (as convened for a definite purpose); technically the congregation; by extension, the place of meeting; also a signal (as appointed beforehand):—appointed (sign, time), (place of, solemn) assembly, congregation, (set, solemn) feast, (appointed, due) season, solemn(-ity), synogogue, (set) time (appointed).
Here is the primitive root: Strong’s #3259
Let’s look at the Hebrew letters and see what we can find:
Yod 10 = The outcome or completion of something. Means: Hand, Right Arm, Power, Right hand of God’s power, a Deed Done, To Work, to Cover, Allow, Hollow, Open Hand
Ayin 70= Completion of time. Means: Eye, to See, Understand, Experience, or to be Seen, Window of the soul-good or bad (made of a Zayin and Yod—Word and Spirit)
Dallet 4 = Earth or creation. Means: Door, Gate, Impoverished man, to come from
MEANING: The completion of something YOD that God has done with the Right Hand of His Power to bring AYIN Understanding through Experience by the Word and the Spirit. To all the Earth of the DALLET, Door for Impoverished men to come through. Yeshua is our Door and every feast is full of prophetic words and symbols concerning Him.
Many people believe that the feasts are only for Jews, for Israel, that they are ‘Jewish’ feasts. But this is what the Word says:
Leviticus 23:1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.
Later in II Chronicles 8:13 we find this:
And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.
God ordained three times a year for all of Israel to come to the Temple to meet with Him in special celebration. The feasts are called Passover, The Feast of Weeks or Pentecost, and Tabernacles. These feasts are made up of seven feasts. Passover is made up of the day of Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Feast of First Fruits. Yeshua fulfilled all of these feasts. He went to the cross on Passover, was in the grave for the Feast of Unleavened Bread ( our sinless bread of heaven), and He rose from the grave on the Feast of First Fruits–the Firstborn of many brethren.
On the Feast of Weeks – 7 weeks after the Feast of First Fruits, the Holy Spirit came in power and filled the 120 in the upper room. The Church was born on that day.
These last three feasts will mark His return. There are as many interpretations of these three as there are teachers. 🙂 But, Yeshua told His disciples in Luke 12:37: Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them.
The ‘watching’ had to do with watching the Biblical calendar and the signs written in the heavens.
We are living in the most exciting times known to man. People and prophets for centuries have waited in anticipation for the day we are now living in. Let’s celebrate the feasts and keep our eyes on Him, the Biblical calendar, the heavens and be willing to move as Holy Spirit directs.
