The Three Annual Festivals
When God raised up a deliverer called Moses and then worked miracles so that Moses could lead the Hebrews out of Egypt and back to the Promised Land, He provided in:
A Complete Prophetic Redemption Picture:
Moses, the deliverer God sent [a type of Jesus],
led the Hebrews out of Egypt [a type of sin],
to a new life in the Promised Land [a type of the promises of God].
Because this great event was such a total picture of His great redemption plan for all mankind, God gave instructions to Moses that He was appointing a Shabbat to be observed every week and Seven Feasts that were to be observed each and every year for all generations to come. In doing this, God had made in the:
A Way to Keep the Prophetic Exodus Redemption Picture Alive Each of these feasts would be
-a reminder looking back at what God did for Israel in the Exodus past [remembering His miracles builds faith], and
-a rehearsal looking ahead to a prophetic future event that would be a part of His great redemption plan for all those who would receive it; He said these feasts are shadows of things to come.
Four of those prophetic redemption events have been fulfilled on the very day of each in
the Spring of 33 AD:
(1) Feast of Passover - fulfilled with the death of Christ
(2) Feast of Unleavened Bread - fulfilled with the burial of Christ
(3) Feast of First Fruits - fulfilled with the resurrection of Christ
(4) Feast of Pentecost - fulfilled with the sending of the Holy Spirit
Yet to happen is the fulfillment of the Fall feasts
(5) Feast of Trumpets - Rapture of the church,
(6) Feast of Yom Kippor - national Redemption of the Jews, and
(7) Feast of Tabernacles - Christ's Return & Reign in His
Millennial Kingdom on earth.
"The Law is Our Looking Glass, A Witness Against Us…
(No One Has Kept It)"
***"After Moses finished writing in a book the words of this law from beginning to end, he gave this command to the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD: take this Book of the Law [the Torah] and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God. There it will remain as a witness against you (Deut. 31:24-26 NIV)."***
***GOOD NEWS! "...[Jesus/Yeshua] BLOTTING OUT the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and TOOK IT OUT OF THE WAY, NAILING IT TO HIS CROSS...Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ (Colossians 2:14-17 KJV)."***
Return to top
To lead the way, God appeared as a pillar of cloud in the daytime.
At night-time, God appeared as a pillar of fire.
The Pharaoh changed his mind and ordered his army to bring the Israelites back.
They were trapped, by the sea so Moses’ said, “Don’t be afraid, watch God save us.”
Then the Lord told Moses, “Stretch your rod over the sea and you will go through on dry land.”
As the Egyptians followed, they were engulfed by the water.
The children of Israel rejoiced and worshipped the Lord.
In the desert they eventually found water, but it was bitter, so God made the bitter water sweet.
One evening God sent a flock of quails for meat and the following morning, they found bread on the ground. They called it manna.
But the Israelites complained to Moses, “Why have you brought us to the desert to die?”
God told Moses to hit a rock with his stick, when he did water began to run, and the people drank.
When they neared the Promised Land, Moses sent out twelve spies, one from each tribe.
But when the spies returned, they said the people were giants and only Caleb and Joshua wanted to enter.
The people further complained to Moses, “Why has the Lord brought us here to be killed?”
“You spied the land for forty days, now you will wander in the wilderness for forty years. Only Joshua and Caleb will enter the promised land.” Thus says the Lord.
In battle Moses would pray with raised hands.
As Moses tired, they would support him, as Joshua fought the battle.
When they reached the wilderness of Sinai.
They camped at the foot of the mountain.
Moses climbed Mount Sinai and the Lord told him. “If you will obey me and keep my law, you will be a special race of people to me.”
Then the Lord came down in fire and the whole mountain shook.
Next came the sound of a trumpet and God asked Moses to climb the mountain.
Then God gave Moses the Ten Commandments
So Moses went down and told the people the Ten Commandments, the people said;
“Every word that the Lord has said, we will do.”
Then the Lord showed Moses how to make the tabernacle and all of the furniture.
But the people had become restless and had made an idol.
When Moses saw the golden calf, he smashed the tablets of stone.
Moses ground the idol to powder, mixed it with water, and made the people drink it.
God told Moses to cut two more tablets.
Then Moses wrote the Ten Commandments.
Moses didn’t know, but his face shone with the glory of God.
Eventually, Moses completed the tabernacle.
After meeting with other priests.
Moses would go into the tabernacle, and meet with the Lord.
But all the children of Israel did, was complain bitterly.
So the Lord sent serpents that bit the people and many of them died.
They were terrified and said to Moses, “We have sinned, we have spoken against the Lord and against you.”
The Lord commanded Moses, “Make a serpent out of metal; put it on a pole and it shall come to pass that everyone who is bitten, shall look at it and live.”
The children of Israel had wandered in the desert for forty years; all had died except Moses, Joshua, Caleb and the children that had grown up.
Moses spoke to the people, “Joshua will be your leader, and will take you into the promised land.”
God took Moses to the top of the mountain and showed him the Promised Land. At the age of one hundred and twenty years Moses died and God buried him.
