free-bing-pic-gods-autumn-holidaysJesus fulfilled all four of the Spring feasts, but He has not yet fulfilled the three Fall feasts. However, He will, for they are not just feasts; they’re not just about food and parties and family. They are appointments that God has set in place, predestined before the beginning of the world. They are dress rehearsals for that which Jesus will fully and perfectly fulfill down to the last detail. “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled,” Matthew 5:18. They are God’s appointed feasts and divine dress rehearsals. They are not Jewish. They are God’s. Therefore, as the people of God, let us pay attention to these feasts and be aware of their significance.

There are 3 Autumn appointments. Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot.

The first is Yom Teruah, otherwise know as Rosh HaShanah and the Feast of Trumpets. It begins the evening of October 2nd. It is the day that God began His creation of the world, and it is also the day that traditionally He is believed to open the books of Life, Death, and one for the “In-Between”. This is followed by ten Days of Awe/Repentance in which all believers are to allow the Holy Spirit to search their hearts. These Books are mentioned in the book of Revelation (Rev 3:5; 20:12; 21:27; etc). More on Yom Teruah is found at this website: http://www.aish.com/h/hh/rh/guide/48939217.html

Following the Days of Awe is Yom Kippur on October 12th in the evening. This day is also known as both the Day of Judgment and the Day of Atonement. More on Yom Kippur is also found at http://www.aish.com/h/hh/yom-kippur/guide/ABCs-of-Yom-Kippur.html

Finally Sukkot, otherwise known as Tabernacles, begins the evening of October 17th.. More can be read about Sukkot at http://www.aish.com/h/su/dits/62549892.html (a strictly Jewish website) or from teachings by Mark Biltz (Judeo-Christian source) http://shop.elshaddaiministries.us/Feasts-of-the-Lord-Set-ITEM-100-001.htm and Jonathan Cahn (Judeo-Christian source) http://www.hopeoftheworld.org.
