“The feasts of the Lord”

“The feasts of the Lord”

Nas 1 Cor. 10:11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.

Nas Deut. 16:16 “Three times in a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God in the place which He chooses, at the Feast of Unleavened Bread and at the Feast of Weeks and at the Feast of Booths, and they shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed.

Feast of Passover
Feast of Pentecost
Feast of Tabernacles

Amp Psa. 89:15 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the people who know the joyful sound [who understand and appreciate the spiritual blessings symbolized by the feasts]; they walk, O Lord, in the light and favor of Your countenance!

Nas Rom. 15:4 For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

1. The feast of Passover
“3 in 1 feast”… within that feast is the feast of unleavened bread and first fruits

2. Feast of Pentecost
     It is referred to as feast of harvest or feast of weeks

agriculturally they got an early rain and wheat harvest

3. Feast of tabernacles
this is also a “3 in 1 feast”…

how do these feasts apply to us today?
we look to a historical event…
we look to a prophetic fulfillment in the Christ…
we look for the spiritual experience for us today…

the historical event of Passover… Exodus 12
The prophetic fulfillment in Christ is… John 1:29
the spiritual experience is 1 cor 5:7-8

1 Cor. 5:7 Clean out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. 8 Let us therefore celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

The feast of unleavened bread speaks to us to day of separation from sin, sanctification, and consecration to God

5 types of leaven mentioned in the new testament
Pharisees (hypocrisy),
Sadducees (denying the supernatural) – denying power
herod (worldliness) – love not the world
Galatians (legalism – mixing law and grace)
Corinthians (sins of the flesh)

The feast of first fruits…

Col. 2:11 and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; 12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.

So first fruits represents the circumcision of our hearts as we follow the lord and walk in him.
(salvation, separation, water baptism)

A picture here of these 3 in the tabernacle of Moses
the outer court, the inner court and holy holies…

The feast of Pentecost
The first fruit harvest feast.

This feast was instituted in exodus 19
50 day’s after leaving Egypt god brought Israel to Sinai

the spiritual experience for us is acts 2 “the day of Pentecost” – 50 day’s after crucifixion…

Pentecost was a feast of harvest.

Pentecost is like the inner court… there’s more

Heb. 12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels,
