Fall Feast 2015

September 13, 2015


It is almost time for the Fall Feast that we all have been looking forward to since Shavuot.  We at The Weaver’s Thread Ministries are so excited about joining our New Mexico Brothers and Sisters for Sukkot 2015 and sharing our teaching with the Olive Tree Congregation in Albuquerque and the Church of Llano Quemado Congregation in Taos. The schedule and location for our teachings are in the side bar, we pray that you will be able to join us.

This is the time of year that Adonai calls us together with the blowing of the shofar, fasting, prayer and gathering together to celebrate Yeshua coming the first time and to anticipate HIS second coming. As we gather for the Fall Feast we do so with heart felt love for Adonai and because HE deemed this as HIS appointed time to meet with us.  As we all know we do not have the Temple at this time to offer sacrifices, so we honor HIM with our observance of HIS appointed times.

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.  You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’”

—Leviticus 23:23-25

This is a time that we watch the night sky and look for HIS appointed time to arrive and listen for the sound of the shofar to call us together.  We wait with anticipation and a longing heart for this time to come, when Yeshua our Messiah returns.

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.  And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God.”

—Leviticus 23:26-28

The Day of Atonement is a day that we should welcome and know that we are Blessed.  This is the one day of the year that Abba our Father wants to meet with us personally, individually.   This is not to say that he is not there for us all the other days of the year, it’s just a special day that he has set aside just for us.  Maybe in HIS wisdom he knew how hard it was for us to be still, quiet and reverent.  It is a day when we focus totally on HIM, as a child with a parent.  This is a day of release from our suffering and transgressions, to bear our heart and soul to him, to ask for HIS forgiveness and seek HIS guidance.  It is a day to be renewed in Abba’s love.

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord. On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it.’”

—Leviticus 23:33-35

The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), what fun it is to celebrate the in-gathering with our Brothers and Sisters in Yeshua.  This is a time to remember the gift that Adonai gave man with the birth of HIS son, Yeshua Messiah. It was during this season that Yeshua was born and we come together to celebrate his birth and to give consciousness to HIS Reign yet to come. As seen with Boaz when he walk among his people in the harvest fields in the Book of Ruth, Abba comes down and Tabernacles with us during these appointed days. He meets us where we are.

…“On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation”

—Leviticus 23:36

The eighth day celebration is a day that is seen as a Glories Day.  We keep this day Holy in anticipation of the coming of the New Kingdom.  The Torah scroll is unrolled and rolled back to begin a new Biblical year, and represents the beginning of Adonai’s New Kingdom, a New Day.

I encourage you to enjoy these days ahead, share them with you family, friends and co-workers. Keep HIM first in your thoughts and prayers and remember these festivals are HIS appointed times which HE deems sacred.  AND please pray for the Peace of Jerusalem!

“Adonai bless you
and keep you;
Adonai make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
Adonai turn his face toward you
and give you Shalom.”

—Numbers 6:24-26
