When look into with the Hebrew calendar and the Feasts of the Lord we see the repeating cycles of God. By getting in step with His appointed times (the Feasts) we have the opportunity to waltz in rhythm with this rich and meaningful dance. We can gaze into the eyes of our Beloved Bridegroom Jesus as the year unfolds.
The seven feasts established by God (more in future posts) are God’s appointed times to meet with His people. The Feasts are not merely Jewish holidays. Many in the body of Christ recognize and enjoy the significance of the Feasts of the Lord.
Colossians 2:16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.
I believe in a personalized approach to the celebration of the Feasts, Sabbaths and the celebration of the new month/Rosh Kodesh. There is freedom to observe or not observe as each individual is led by the Spirit of the Lord. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Colossians concerning the freedom not only to observe or not observe but also our flexibility in how we choose to observe. In other words we can celebrate in any way we like. Like everything else we leave the legalistic approach behind. Studying and observing the Feasts has enhanced my relationship with God. Through understanding the Feasts, and the Tabernacle I have a deeper understanding of redemption, atonement how the Spirit operates in my life, as well as, abiding in Christ as He abides in me.
Looking at year by way of the symbolism of the Hebrew letters we gain interesting insight. I will be writing on the significance of the current year we are in 5779, as well as the upcoming changes in the decade ahead.
