THE FEASTS OF YISHARAL ARE CENTRAL NOT ONLY TO YISHARAL’S WORSHIP PRACTICES BUT TO ESTABLISHING THEIR IDENTITY AS PEOPLE OF YAHUSHA. THE SEVEN SCRIPTURAL FEASTS ARE AMONG WHAT YAHUSHA CALLS HIS `APPOINTED TIMES' (MOEDIM) AND THESE ARE CYCLICAL EVENTS BASED ON THE CALENDAR THAT YAHUSHA HAS ESTABLISHED, IN ORDER THAT YISHARAL WOULD HAVE CAUSE TO PAUSE AND REFLECT ON JUST WHO THEY ARE AND WHO THEIR ALAHIM IS. THREE TIMES A YEAR THE HEBREWS WERE TO MAKE A PILGRIMAGE (A JOURNEY) TO THE LOCATION OF THE CENTRAL SANCTUARY IN ORDER TO PRESENT THEMSELVES BEFORE YAHUSHA ON THOSE OCCASIONS. SINCE YAHUSHA’S PRESENCE WAS SEEN AS RESIDING ABOVE THE ARK OF THE BLOOD-COVENANT WITNESS, THEN TO PRESENT ONESELF TO YAHUSHA MEANT THAT ONE MUST COME TO THE LOCATION OF THE ARK, WHICH OF COURSE WAS THE TABERNACLE AND LATER THE TEMPLE.
People of Yisharal, you must guard the Passover and celebrate it in the month of Abib, because in that month many years ago, Yahuah your Alahim rescued you from Egypt. The Passover sacrifice must be a cow, a sheep, or a goat, and you must offer it at the place where Yahuah chooses to rest His Name(THE TABERNACLE.... IE US). Eat all of the meat of the Passover sacrifice that same night and don’t serve any bread made with yeast, instead bake the same thin bread that you ate when you were slaves suffering in Egypt and when you had to leave Egypt quickly. As long as you live, this unleavened bread will remind you of the day you left Egypt. For seven days following the Passover don’t make any bread with yeast. In fact, there should be no yeast anywhere in Yisharal (YEAST = DISOBEDIENT BEHAVIOUR & FALSE TEACHINGS). Don’t offer the Passover sacrifice in just any town where you happen to live, for it must be offered at the place where Yahuah chooses to rest His Name. Kill the sacrifice at sunset, the time of day when you left Egypt, then cook it and eat it there at the tabernacle, returning to your tents the next morning. Eat unleavened bread for the next six days. Then on the seventh day, don’t do any work. Instead, come together for a final celebration to Yahuah.
Seven weeks after you start your grain harvest, go to the place where Yahuah chooses to Rest His Name and celebrate the Harvest Festival of weeks in honor of Yahuah your Alahim. [FIRST-FRUITS, A SHADOW OF YAHUSHA’S RESURRECTION]. Bring Yahuah an offering as large as you can afford, depending on how big a harvest He’s given you. Be sure to take along your sons and daughters and all your servants and invite the poor, including Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows. Don’t forget that you used to be slaves in Egypt, so obey these Instructions.
After you have finished the grain and grape harvest, take your sons and daughters and all your servants to the place where Yahuah chooses to rest His Name and celebrate the Festival of Booths for seven days. Also invite the poor, including Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows. Yahuah will give you big harvests and make you successful in everything you do if you guard His Instructions and obediently do them. And you will be completely happy, so celebrate this festival in honor of Yahuah your Alahim. Each year there are three festivals when all Yisharalite men must go to the place where Yahuah chooses to be worshiped. Three times a year (Passover, Pentecost & Booths) all your males must appear before Yahuah your Alahim at the Tabernacle and don’t forget to take along a gift for Yahuah. The bigger the harvest that Yahuah gives you, the bigger your gift should be.
TODAY IN THE 21st CENTURY THE BRIDE OF YAHUSHA NEEDS TO KNOW THAT HER BEHAVIOUR IN OBSERVING THE FEASTS OF YISHARAL ARE AN ABOMINATION TO YAHUSHA . . . BECAUSE THEY'RE ALWAYS FOCUSSING ON THEMSELF . . .
Yahusha is so sick and tired of His cherished Bride behaving like religion does at His set-apart `Appointed Times'. They are MOEDIM, meaning something phenomenal will always happen in the right place at the right time (time & space remember?) The portal connection, relationship and sincere, truthful behaviour is paramount in pleasing Yahusha at His feasts, whether you're alone or with a few friends who love Yahusha too.
Hiding behind the original shadows listed in the Scriptures (rituals that Yahusha has now transformed and breathed life into) is not only immature and childish, but if a believer stays in this place and refused to grow and move on down the path, this behaviour is revolting to Yahusha, resembling the dead liturgy and catechism performed in countless assemblies, steeples and synagogues around the world by people without the portal of life. But Yahusha's Bride is connected to the vine, the tree of life and His everlasting Words of life sustain her as she navigates her way through the darkness and pressure of this world.
ARE YOU BEHAVING AN ABOMINATION AT THE APPOINTED TIMES BY BLOWING SHOFARS, LIGHTING CANDLES, FASTING, BUILDING SUKKAHS, EATING UNLEAVENED BREAD, LAMB, THE BREAD AND THE CUP, TSITS, SEDARS ETC ETC ??
