The Feast of Tabernacles has aspects of a vacation, yet its purpose is far more serious and spiritual. We know this, but what do we practice?
Do we truly believe that what God has made holy is sacred to Him? When we ignore or trample on His holy things, how close are we to Nadab or Ananias?
From Passover to Pentecost to Trumpets to Atonement to the Feast of Tabernacles, these days should solidify our vision of he Father, Jesus, and one another.
If we do not keep God's holy days, we will deprive ourselves of the knowledge of God's purpose. Jesus and the first century church observed and upheld these days.
The Feast of Trumpets has very little directly written about it in Scripture. Here are the basic facts about this pivotal and holy day.
Keeping God's annual Sabbaths are just as much a mandate on God's people as keeping the Ten Commandments.
The Feasts of God are not vacations, but are holy convocations when God assembles His family for the purpose of enabling us to learn to fear and honor Him.
Here are the foundational principles to keep in mind in observing the Feasts of God throughout the year.
God's word marks the Sabbath as a time of His calling His people together for worship, so attending church services is a vital part of the Christian Sabbath.
The Sabbath provides an opportunity for God's children to develop a relationship with Him, reflecting on the spiritual as well as the physical creation.
God can take satisfaction that He is doing the right thing, and thus His rejoicing can even come from painful judgments. Sarcificing and rejoicing are linked.
Passover takes place at twilight as the 14th of Abib begins. Unleavened Bread begins 24 hours later on the 15th of Abib. The Passover is a preparation day.
Because of our 'time-bound' state, unless we sync with God's timetable, we are squandering our God-given time to become members of His family.
