Discover the Prophetic Significance of the Feasts of the Lord This Fall

by | Oct 21, 2019 | Prophetic Insight

We are currently in the month of October—a beautiful fall month when the leaves begin to change from bright shades of green to warm hues of gold, red and orange. A chill is in the air. These fall months tell us that we are in the midst of change, transitioning from one season to another.

According to the Hebraic calendar that God created for the Jewish people, we are in the month of Tishri. The Hebraic calendar and the Gregorian calendar typically don’t align regarding the beginnings and ends of the months.

This is because the Gregorian calendar is solar, whereas the Hebraic calendar is lunar.

God established a timeline in the Bible according to the Hebraic months. This is a mystery that many believers are not aware of. As a result, they miss out on what God has planned for these appointed times.

He named and established the months for a purpose.

The purpose was for the Jewish people to:

—Remember all He did for them.

—Reflect on His promises of a future of hope.

—Reestablish a connection with Him.

—Reveal His plan of purpose, prosperity and peace to them.

As believers, we are grafted into the nation of Israel through Jesus Christ. We have the privilege and honor of partaking in His season of revelation and reflection. We also can experience those same blessings from the “fatness of the olive tree.”

“For I speak to you Gentiles … being a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among them and became a partaker with them of the root and richness of the olive tree” (Rom. 11:13, 17).

Partaking in the Appointed Times of the Fall Feasts

Although the “fall feast” celebrations have concluded, let’s look back at their importance of being appointed times. They are open doors for us to experience more of the Father’s love and direction in our lives. The Bible says that He only wants good for us (Jer. 29:11). Therefore, when we meet with Him according to His timing, how much more will God reveal His goodness to us?

How Can Believers View These Appointed Times and the Fall Feasts of the Lord?

As born-again believers, the fall feasts of the Lord have an even greater meaning and depth of revelation as we see Jesus in them.

For the Jewish people, this is a period of great introspection, heart-searching and self-examination. It can be the same for us.

—The blood of the Lamb was shed for you and me.

—We can walk with confidence because of the victory that was won at the cross.

Therefore, we can rejoice knowing God has given us new hearts that align with His will during these appointed times!

God’s Calendar and the Fall Feasts of the Lord

God’s calendar is a magnificent structure. All of the months, seasons and appointed times come with great revelation and blessings. Let’s take a closer look at the fall feasts—Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot—and their blessings.

Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets)

“The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath, a memorial with the blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no regular work, and you shall offer a food offering made by fire to the Lord” (Lev. 23:23-25).

The blessing of rest. Rosh Hashanah is a time of rest. When we are well-rested, we are renewed and can move forward with our purpose. When we don’t rest, we get worn down, and the enemy is more likely to get a foothold in our lives.

The blessing of the trumpet blast. The Hebrew word for “blowing the trumpet” is teruah, which means “a shout or blast.” This shout is to awaken our spirits and praise His name. Praising His name is always a blessing.

Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement)

“The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation to you, and you shall humble yourselves, and offer a food offering made by fire to the Lord” (Lev. 23:26-27).

The blessing of Jesus’ affliction and atonement. Jesus’ blood was shed as the ultimate atonement for our sins. From His sacrifice, we now have the promise of an inheritance and have been given His robe of righteousness.

and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen” (Rev. 1:5-6).

Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles)

“The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the children of Israel, saying: The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord” (Lev. 23:33-34).

This instruction was given right after God delivered the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. He provided “tabernacles,” or temporary dwellings, as they wandered in the desert.

The blessings of deliverance and the Spirit’s dwelling. We can rejoice because Jesus has freed us from the bondage of sin and the Spirit dwells within us.

“The Lord is my pillar, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower” (Ps. 18:2).
