Holy Feast Days and Celebrations Seven feast days total

The first four of the seven feasts occur during the springtime (Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Weeks), and they all have already been fulfilled by Christ

Leviticus 23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations (meaning gathering), even these are my feasts.

Hebrew word for "feasts" (moadim) literally means "appointed times."

God has carefully planned and orchestrated the timing and sequence of each of these seven feasts to reveal to us a special message. The seven annual feasts of Israel were spread over seven months of the Jewish calendar, at set times appointed by God.

Passover (Leviticus 23:5) - Pointed to the Messiah as our Passover lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7) whose blood would be shed for our sins.

Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:6) - Pointed to the Messiah' s sinless life (as leaven is a picture of sin in the Bible), making Him the perfect sacrifice for our sins. 1 Corinthians 5:8 Let us keep the Christian feast of Christ's resurrection in that spirit of holiness - of purging away sin from the midst of us - which was symbolized by the Jewish removal of leaven. Not with old leaven.

First Fruits (Leviticus 23:10) - Pointed to the Messiah' s resurrection as the first fruits of the righteous. Jesus was resurrected on this very day, which is one of the reasons that Paul refers to him in 1 Corinthians 15:20 as "Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept."

Weeks or Pentecost (Leviticus 23:16) - Occurred fifty days after the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and pointed to the great harvest of souls and the gift of the Holy Spirit for both Jew and Gentile, who would be brought into the kingdom of God during the Church Age. Acts 2:1, 4 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place..And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost

The final three feasts have not been fufilled (Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles) occur during the fall, all within a short fifteen-day period.


Because we have not been gathered out of nations yet

The final three feasts have not been fufilled (Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles) occur during the fall

Trumpets (Leviticus 23:24) - The first of the fall feasts, trumpet blasting was a designated method of calling Israel into order, Exodus 19:13 ...when the trumpet soundeth long, they (the Israelites) shall come up to the mount (the Israelites were to gather together unto GOD). Throughout the Scripture trumpets have not only a literal use, but a symbolic meaning attached. Revelation 8:2 and Matthew 24:31 blowing of seven trumpets, is announcing progressive stages of the downfall and overthrow of the worlds nations, ending with the return of Christ to take possession of the earth. This is when Israel and Judah gathers together in one place. Matthew 24:31 angel (here can mean messengers and 4 is symbolic of north, east, south, and west)

Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27) Leviticus 23:27 "Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord." atoning was a sacrifice for the sins of the people which was ineffective Hebrews 10:11 eventually Israel would stop making offerings Hebrews 10:6 and in Hebrews 10:26 it lays out that Christ sacrifice was Israel final atonement to reconcile his believers with GOD however the feast is not completely fufilled in Hebrews 10:10 and Isaiah 53:67 Christ fufills the affliction and offering part of the Feast of Atonement but the last part of Atonement is the ceremonial period symbolizing our mourning for Jesus Christ who gave his life for us 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 ...." that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:" this is prophesied in Zechariah 12:10.." and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son." (these are the tear drops from the eye of faith looking on Him Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. 2 Peter 1:11) Here will be the repentance of the faithless and we will put away our wicked lifestyles which is the mourning and all those who do not will be purged from among the Israelites. Ezekiel 20:37-38 "And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the Lord."

The Feast of Atonement starts once Judah and Israel start gathering in the wilderness

Tabernacles also called Booths (Leviticus 23:34) This Feast reminds us of how God led the Israelites in the Sinai desert as they lived in tents (booths means tents) and that the Lord provided for their every need detailed in the book of Exodus starting from Chapter 13. On their journey out of Egypt to the promise land the LORD led them (Exodus 13:21-22) and in Exodus 40 GOD tells Moses to make a tabernacle which cloud covered and the glory of GOD filled the tabernacle Exodus 40:34. This is the name Feast of Tabernacles.

However this does not last because Israel would turn to wickedness and would be punished by GOD therefore the Feast of Tabernacles is not fufilled.

After babylon is destroyed and all of the enemies of GOD are defeated

Revelation 20:7-15 (then tabernacle of GOD will dwell with men fufilling the Feast of Tabernacles.)

Revelation 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
