“It’s more than just bread, it’s what the bread represents.”
“It’s not just a cupcake or a cookie, it’s the understanding that came along with making it.”
In the Bible, in the book of Leviticus and in the 23rd chapter it is written about the Lord’s Holy Days or High Sabbaths, but commonly known as Feast Days. These holy convocations were commanded to be kept by His chosen people throughout their generations and in their seasons. Every feast day plays a very important role in serving God, Jesus Christ, and in the Father’s plan for salvation. Each feast holds a very significant meaning for the things to come.
After the night of the Passover, when the Lord delivered the children of Israel out of Egypt, the very next day began the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
This feast is to be kept for seven days with an holy convocation on the first and last night. For the duration of all seven days not only are we are commanded to eat unleavened bread but we are to also have all LEAVENED bread items removed from any area of possession we own.
The feast itself represent deliverance but the unleavened bread represents being sin free. When we come under the blood of the real Passover sacrificial lamb, Jesus Christ, having our sins passed over. We then are suppose take advantage of this second chance at life and live according to His word, walking sin free. Each day representing the allotted time God has given unto man until the Father’s Kingdom comes completing the Passover.
Next there’s the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost which represents the first fruits of the Lord. These first fruits are those who come up in the first resurrection following after the First Fruit Christ. This will take place at the beginning of Jesus kingdom for His millennial reign here on this earth.
Then there’s The Memorial of The Blowing of The Trumpets. This high sabbath allows us to gain understanding of the future events to come leading up to that last trumpet to be blown announcing the return of our king, Jesus.
The Day of Atonement follows right behind The Memorial of the Trumpets. This holy day is a day in which we afflict our souls through fasting, in a small reflective act of what great work our Lord and Saviour did in His mercy for us on the cross making an atonement for our sins. It will be on this day that the Lord will make His return.
Lastly, there is The Feast of Tabernacles or ingathering meaning the harvest. This will be a time where Lord will gather the rest of His people, Israel and those who have chosen to under the banner there of, from the four corners of the earth. They will be brought under the bond of His covenant that they too may serve Him. For this feast we are commanded to both feast and dwell in booths for seven days and have a holy convocation on first and eighth day.
God’s original purpose for creating man was so we could live forever and become just like Him. We would have had the opportunity to go from flesh and blood beings to spiritual beings without seeing death had man never sinned in the garden. The booths during the tabernacle feast represent this flesh and blood body we dwell in now. God has given us, man, seven days according to His length of a day( 2 Peter 3:8) before judgement day. The holy convocation we have on the eighth day represents the day we are all waiting for, the entering in of the Father’s Kingdom, New Jerusalem. When New Jerusalem comes down to earth the Father will finally be able dwell with us and we, God the Father and the Son and all saints will partake in the last Passover. The eight day meaning this will be the beginning of something new.
Repent and be baptized for the remission of sins. Fear God and keep His commandments.
