The Three Laws of God
1. Sacrificial - was fulfilled by Christ.
2. Ceremonial - Spring feasts were fulfilled by Christ, fall feasts will be fulfilled upon His return.
3. Moral - is God's character and will never change.
PROPHECY OF THE SEVEN JEWISH FEASTS
In Leviticus 23, we find that the Festivals of the Lord were to be observed forever and that they are types and shadows of Yeshua and the New Covenant.
The first four feasts have been fulfilled and the Jewish community celebrates them historically. They are Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits and the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost. These four Spring Feasts are considered to be an interrelated whole where Pentecost is the completion of the process begun at Passover.
*** Passover – pictures the Death of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of Unleavened Bread – pictures the Burial of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of First Fruits – pictures the Resurrection of Christ
*** Pentecost – pictures the Descent of the Holy Spirit & the Birth of the Church
While the first four Festivals occur in close proximity, an entire season passes before the Fall Feasts begin. This long period represents the dispensation of grace that we now live in. The last three feasts (Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles) are celebrated in the Fall season and are yet to be fulfilled so they remain prophetic in nature.
*** Feast of the Trumpets – pictures the Rapture of the Church
*** Feast of Atonement – pictures the Second Coming of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of Tabernacles – pictures the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ
The final three feasts are also known as Rosh HaShanah (Feast of the Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Feast of Atonement), and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).
