God’s Feasts and Shadows of Things to Come

by | Sep 7, 2021 | Israel & Jewish Roots

God is God 24/7. He is there for you every moment of every day. However, there are times when He is closer to you than any other time during the year. Those are the Appointed Times, or moadims, on His calendar. They are the Feasts of the Lord, and three times a year we come and bring our offering to Him. We don’t come empty-handed, but rather we bring our best gift. These seasons of Passover (Pesach), Pentecost (Shavuot) and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) are shadows of things to come.

During Passover, we remember the journey from Egypt and slavery to the Promised Land full of God’s promises; Jesus, the Messiah with blood over the doorpost; the seven places He shed His blood on the cross and the complete atonement for our sins. Forty days later, during Pentecost, the Jewish feast of Shavuot, we receive the Holy Spirit and the presence and power of God. These are no longer times of shadow; they have been fulfilled. What still remains? What is still a shadow? The answer is in the Fall feasts.

For 40 days, the sound of the shofar calls us to wake up and return to God. Rosh Hashanah is the start of a new year symbolized by the taste of apples dipped in honey. It is a time when the Messiah could come again. Are you ready? Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is a foreshadowing of the marriage supper of the Lamb. Will you be there? Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, sometimes called the Feast of Trumpets, is the final blast of the shofar. The Messiah, Jesus, returns again to fight the final battle as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Do you see the light and God’s revelation in the shadow? Is your heart prepared? Are you serving Him with all your heart? Are you ready?
