Feast Facts

THE FALL FEASTS

Reflect, Repent, Reconcile, Remember, Rejoice
And the Lord spoke to Moses saying, “Speak to the Children of Israel, and
say to them: The Feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy
convocations, these are My feasts.” Leviticus 23:1
  
The Fall Feasts consist of three festivals: The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement, and The Feast of Tabernacles. These feasts are extremely important because they teach us to honor God for who He is and for what He has done for us. In addition, they teach us about God’s plan for humankind and how He powerfully intervenes in human affairs! Revelation 21:3 says “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.”  During the Fall Feast season we are expecting God to tabernacle with us.

THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES

The Feast of Tabernacles is the climax of the Fall Feasts and the most celebrative. It is God’s appointed time for believers to come into His presence and celebrate His glory, provision, protection, and deliverance through Jesus Christ. Leviticus 23:40 says to “Rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days.” Deuteronomy 16:14-15 says to “Be joyful at your Feast for the Lord your God will bless you and your joy will be complete.” We will celebrate with singing, dancing, and great food.  Mark your calendar to be a part of this exciting time.

God’s Days of Rest

As our Church Family prepares to celebrate the Fall Feasts, consider scheduling the following days off from work. In Leviticus 23, God instructs the Israelites to “do no customary work” on specific days associated with the feasts. “No customary work” basically means to take the day off from work. The Lord understands if you have to work, but if you can, take the day off enjoy the Lord and your family.

“No Customary Work” Days
Remember all Holy days begin at sundown the evening before the calendar day listed.
(Example: The Feast of Trumpets begins at sundown on Wednesday, September 20th).
Thursday, October 5th                                                           Feast of Tabernacles (Day 1)
Thursday, October 12th                                                         Feast of Tabernacles (Day 8)
