Transcript

Leviticus 23:4 these are the appointed times of the LORD Holy convocations which you shall proclaim at the times appointed for them the word appointed times it’s the word Moadim in Hebrew sometimes it’s translated feast in English but feast is really not a good word that implies a lot of food or big banquet table this really isn’t necessarily about food although it usually is celebrations usually include food but what it really is it’s an appointment that’s the best word it says these are the appointments of the LORD a lot of people think these are just Jewish things they’re actually not Jewish it said right there, we just read it these are appointments of the LORD these are times when the LORD has said these are my festivals these are my celebrations these are times when I will show up I’ll be there would you like to come and spend time with me of course they were implemented in Israel but I don’t believe they were unique to Israel they’re meant for all of us anybody who would like to come and worship and spend time with the LORD at that time let me just tell you when the seven feasts are I’m just going to read them to you the Passover which is resurrection of Messiah and it was connected to the pagan celebration of Ishtar the goddess Ishtar which is why we frequently call it Easter but originally it was Passover and then the second one is the feast of unleavened bread then first fruits next is Shavuot or we call that also Pentecost then the next the feast of trumpets it’s called Yom Teruah also Rosh Hashanah then the day of atonement which is called Yom Kippur and then Sukkot which is also known as the feast of tabernacles the first three happen in the springtime usually in March or April Shavuot is usually late May or June and then the last three happen here in North America in our fall time September, October type of dates these are God’s times of celebration I encourage you to study in the word what these celebrations are about I encourage you get more information on the Moadim the festivals the celebration times I believe that honestly there is a special anointing of the Holy Spirit that comes at those very specific times they’re times of celebration every single one of these that we see listed in Leviticus 23 were actually fulfilled or are yet in the process of being fulfilled in Messiah obviously for example the Passover was fulfilled in the resurrection of Messiah His resurrection fulfills the Passover we have feast of Tabernacles is fulfilled in the birth of Messiah when He came to earth to tabernacle amongst us so today let’s celebrate the spirit of God being on the earth with us let’s celebrate today that Jesus is raised from the dead He released the Holy Spirit and today we’re going to celebrate His presence with us everywhere we go in every place in your workplace everywhere you go today the Holy Spirit is walking with you and we get to celebrate life with Him so remember everywhere you go today walk in His presence and love God with all your heart bless other people around you and you will make a difference
