If you have wondered about the Biblical feasts… you know, the ones Scripture calls the Feasts of the Lord, ‘MY appointed times….’ then, NOW is the time to act.
We are about 35 days away from Rosh Hashannah, 45 days away from Yom Kippur and 50 days away from the joyous WEEK of Sukkot, the Feast of Booths. Each is special and is significant in the life of the believer. These are time that Scripture clearly says are ‘Yahweh’s appointed times.’ ‘Perpetual statutes in all your dwelling places throughout your generations….’
He desires to meet with us, but not on our own terms or with our own invented holy days. Rather, He has given us seven wonderful set apart festivals for our rest and spiritual fulfillment. NOW is the time to begin planning and preparing for each.
Much info can be gleaned with simple internet searches, but if I could recommend a book, strongly consider getting a copy of Robin Sampson’s A Family Guide to the Biblical Feasts. TONS of helpful info for each of the festivals, plus more. Other options are listed here.
I would encourage you to strongly consider participating!! My family and I began celebrating the Feasts of the Lord several years ago and have been blessed in so many ways as a result of simple obedience to Scripture. These festivals have become times that our family looks forward to months in advance!!
If you are in the South Carolina area, or are willing to travel, our fellowship invites you to consider coming to join us for Sukkot. Drop me a message in the comments section and I can get you more info and tell you how to get onto our Sukkot2013 page. (Your contact info and message will be deleted as soon as I get it… I monitor this page pretty closely.) Dates are sundown September 18 through sundown the 26th. Come for all or part of the week… Camp on the grounds. Fellowship, celebrate and grow.
If you are not in this area… get a couple books, read up, search the internet, ask questions and prepare to meet the Father at HIS appointed time!
