   FEASTS OF ISRAEL IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE NEW COVENANT

                                               INTRODUCTION

  Most folks love celebrations. Here in the U.S. we celebrate all kinds of events. We celebrate family events like birthdays, weddings anniversaries, Fathers and Mothers day, and on and on. We also celebrate national holidays like July Fourth and President’s birthdays. Various religious holidays like Christmas and Easter are also celebrated. All these celebrations and festivals are familiar to us because they are part of our culture. However, Jewish celebrations are not as familiar or a part of our culture. So, the question being, “can/should we as New Covenant Believers celebrate the three mandatory Feasts of Israel”? Hopefully you will discover that each of Israel’s feasts has a prophetic element that was and is being fulfilled by Yeshua.

We learn from scriptures that the three mandatory Feasts are a shadow of things to come. Webster’s Dictionary shows many definitions and meanings for the word shadow, and this one fits our discussion on Israel’s feasts: “something without reality or substance; imaginary vision”.

The concept of vicarious atonement, salvation, immersion (baptism) and The Messiah are all Jewish.  The Old and New Covenants are Jewish books which were written by Jewish men mostly for Jewish and Goyim (Gentile) believers. The New Covenant is built upon and completes the Hebrew Scriptures, which were just a shadow of the reality and not the substance of things to come. This was made clear in the Apostle Paul’s letter to the believers in Colossae.

“Therefore do not let anyone pass judgment on you in matters of food or drink, or in respect to a festival or new moon or Shabbat. These are a foreshadowing of things to come, but the reality is Messiah.” (Col. 2:16-17 TOL Tree of life translation)

We as New Covenant believers can also celebrate the reality and substance of the Messiah when celebrating the Feasts of Israel, as the following discussions show.

  1. Chanukka.
  2.  Passover
  3.  Unleavened Bread
  4. First Fruits
  5.  Pentecost (Shavuot)
  6. Trumpets. (Under construction)
  7. Atonement. (Under construction)
  8. Tabernacles – Booths
