Leviticus 23:4 ‘These are the feasts of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times.
5 On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover.
6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread.
7 On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.
8 But you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.’”
These are His appointed times, just as He says, “‘These are the feasts of Adonai / the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times.” (Vs 4)
These are not man’s feasts, but are ordained by the very God we say that we worship. But if indeed we are subject to the same God that created us and the world we live in, I believe that we wouldn’t find it so difficult to do as He tells us we must do.
Here He tells us that we must remember the day of our redemption, both on the day that the Children of Israel were protected from the death angel as He passed over Egypt, and on the day that Yehoshua was crucified, thus redeeming all that come to Him.
“On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover.” (Vs 5)
The first month is determined by the Barley crop being Aviv or ready for harvest. And Passover occurs 14 days later. So, the timing of the feast of Passover is determined by YHVH God’s calendar, not by men.
Remember that Christ Died for our redemption about the same time as the Lambs were being slaughtered in the Temple for the Passover sacrifice. Are the two events connected? I can’t imagine otherwise, as Yahovah always does major things in connection with His Feasts.
But those who ignore YHVH God’s Calendar and follow the Gregorian calendar are missing so much, because all of His appointed times are prophetic.
“And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread.
On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.” (Vs 6, 7)
The days of unleavened Bread are immediately following Passover Day and begin with the Assembly coming together for worship, and to rehearse, the meaning of these days. A time for the removal of all sin. all leaveningis cleaned out of the home and out of us. We will eat no yeast bread, or leavening, for 7 days.
Then immediately on the heels of that comes the feast of First Fruits. When Yehoshua rose from the grave and presented to the Father, the first fruits of the resurrection.
We would do well to remember these appointed times, and keep them, for we can be sure that Heaven is keeping these appointed times, and that they will be kept and taught during Christ’s Millennial Reign.
The feasts are all about the same Christ we claim to worship, the Messiah of Israel, who is the ultimate teacher of YHVH God’s Law.
Passover: He dies.
Unleavened Bread: He rids His house of sin.
First Fruits: He raises from the dead.
Pentecost: He sends His Spirit.
Trumpets: He returns.
The Day of atonement: He judges the Earth.
Tabernacles: The Marriage of the Lamb takes place, and the feast follows.
Do you not think that we should pay Homage to our savior and our Elohim?
