Every time I have an opportunity to be in the Galilee, I often reflect on Yeshua’s times of preparations before the feasts.
All of God’s biblical feasts are prophetic ones with prophetic messages. Nothing is random with the Lord, everything carries a deeper meaning.
Naturally many beautiful traditions and customs developed around these feasts, but our focus is going to be specifically on the prophetic aspects of the biblical feasts.
We’re three weeks away from entering into a season of High Holidays — the biblical feasts of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).
What is the Holy Spirit’s message through these feasts in this time, this season, and this moment? What is God doing in your life, or in my life? Here in Israel, as well as in the nations?
O Judah, keep your appointed feasts…
Every time the festive season was near, Yeshua would speak with His disciples and tell them He would leave Capernaum (the HQ of his ministry) and would go up to Jerusalem to celebrate the upcoming biblical feast.
When speaking of the biblical feast it’s important to remember there are two seasons: Feasts of Firsts (Pesach – Passover & Shavuot – Feast of Pentecost), and then there are the Final Feasts, those marking the completion of things.
Prophetically Yeshua already fulfilled the First Feasts, and when we look at the rest of the feasts, they prophetically point to what is to come. Which is why the first one of those feasts is Rosh Hashanah, or Feast of Trumpets. Why Trumpets? What do they come to announce? Don’t miss the teaching “The Prophetic Mystery of the Feast of Trumpets” in our next letter.
