We know the first 4 feasts are clearly showing Jesus’ death on the cross, burial, and the resurrection, and then Pentecost. The last four seem to be only for the Jewish people in the Old Testament, but they have great end times meaning.
Joel 2:15 says, “Blow a trumpet in Zion; set apart a fast – a day of restraint and humility; call a solemn assembly.” Amp.
This day of restraint for the Jewish people was the Day of Atonement. They began by blowing the trumpets to warn and prepare the people that the day was approaching. They had to spend the entire day in repentance and humility. They were to do no work but to sit and look back on the past year and remember all their sins so they could confess them and be forgiven. They believed if they forgot something that they would not be forgiven.
This is a symbol and picture of what the Lord requires of us. We are to come to Him daily, repenting of anything we may have done or said to offend Him. True humility is realizing how weak we are and are in great need of the Holy Spirit to help us walk in holiness and separation from sin and the world. We are dependent upon Him.
Leviticus 23:29 For whoever is not afflicted by fasting in penitence and humility on this day shall be cut off from among his people (that he may not be included in the atonement made for them). Amp.
30. And whoever does any work on that same day, I will destroy from among his people.
32. It shall be to you a sabbath of rest…
This is a symbol of what the Lord wants from His people. He made the atonement for us by becoming the only pure spotless Lamb that could be that sacrifice for us. When we come to Him there is always a time of fasting and cleansing. We become a brand-new creation. If we reject His offer to believe in His crucifixion and atonement for us, then we will be cut off as they were during the Feasts. We can come into His rest because we are forgiven and free from guilt, shame and punishment.
The Feast of Tabernacles is a symbol in the Old Testament of the actual presence of God coming into our hearts and making us His dwelling place. As we draw nearer to the end times, we can see the signs of Jesus putting it all together beginning with Joel 2:15-32
When the remnant repents, He restores what they lost. But in the New Testament He restores their spirit. He makes us whole and blameless giving us an overcoming spirit. We are cleansed, changed, and prepared to be His Temple. This is the true Jubilee. Jesus died so we could be filled with His Spirit and become Holy like Him.
Thank you for the powerful revelation.
You blessed with the feast of tabernacle one which speaks of God dwelling among us.
Yesterday we had a word about the blessing that came of Obed Edom when he housed the Ark of God and here is the extract..
2 Samuel 6:10-12
“So David would not move the ark of the Lord with him into the City of David; but David took it aside into the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. The ark of the Lord remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite three months. And the Lord blessed Obed-Edom and all his household. Now it was told King David, saying, “The Lord has blessed the house of Obed-Edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God.” So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with gladness.”
Saints, let us be conscious of the presence of God surrounding us all the time. His glory surrounds us.
Get ready for three months of destiny, from July to September.
Let oil flow, new anointing is flowing. Breakthroughs are coming your way. God is working behind the scenes!
What a great and timely Word. I believe it is happening. In my Church 2 babies were born on the same day, 7/7/22. One Grandchild to the 2 Worship Leaders and the Pastor and his wife had their first Grandchild. It made me think! The Trumpets is the 1st day of July and the Atonement is the 10th day of July, which is when they announced it. I know it means something. I think maybe it is time for repentance. To me that is breakthroughs. “Walls are coming down!” Thanks for sharing this with me!
