Jesus 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, more than likely one right after the other at His Second Coming. “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. Though it is known as the day of trumpets the word often translated trumpets in the Bible actually means “shouting” or “blowing”. Though it has traditionally been known as the day that “no man knows” for it falls on a new moon that has to be confirmed by two witnesses, not much is actually said about this day in the Bible. This day is followed by ten Days of Awe/Repentance in which all believers are to allow the Holy Spirit to search their hearts. More on Yom Teruah is found here: https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2021/09/04/yom-teruah-2021/
Following the Days of Awe is Yom Kippur, which literally translated means “Day of Atonement.” This is the one day a year wherein the High Priest enters the Holy Place on his own behalf as well as the nation of Israel’s behalf. This is the most “Jewish” of all God’s holy days. For more on Yom Kippur please refer to this link: https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2018/10/01/gods-holidays-yom-kippur/ and https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/09/28/living-out-yom-kippur/
The final holy day of the Lord is that of Sukkot, otherwise known as Tabernacles, for everyone is to live in homemade three sided booths at this time to commemorate camping in the wilderness after coming up out of Egypt. It also commemorates God coming down to dwell in a tabernacle among them. This is a holiday that will be celebrated by ALL throughout the Millennium (Zachariah 14), and all will trek to Jerusalem once a year to celebrate it. This is the most joyous of all God’s holidays for it is all about light and laughter and singing and dancing and great joy. It is truly a time that not only looks back on the Jews camping in the wilderness, but looks forward for Christians to that joyous time when Jesus will physically, literally dwell among us and will be the light in our midst!
