Shavout—Feast of Weeks/Pentacost

Scripture Exodus 34:22-23 celebrates the 7 weeks (50 days) from the second night of Pesach (thus "Pentecost," which means "50") ScriptureLeviticus 23:9-22 Moses and the Israelites traveled from Egypt to Mt. Sinai, where God's fiery presence was seen. There occured the Matan Torah ("Giving of the Torah") when God gave them the Ten Commandments.

Shavuot is compared to a wedding, for it was on Shavout that the covenant between God and the Jewish people was sealed at Mount Sinai.

Also called Hag Ha Kazir Feast of Harvest, traditionally when the Scripture Book of Ruth is read.

Chuck Missler's articles on the Harvest and Pentecost

50 Days after Christ's ressurection, the Scripture “Holy Spirit was given the Day of Pentecost had come ... and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit” —Acts 2:1-13

A resource I highly recommend! Also in the NT, the
Pre-Tribulation Rapture is compared to a wedding of the "Bride of Christ", devout believers of the Messiah.

The legal basis of Christianity — Christ (like Boaz) the “Kinsman Redeemer” of his gentile bride Ruth. Scripture Leviticus 25:25

Pentecost Devotion on the Scroll of Ruth

Ezekiel's Chariot of God (HaMerkavah)

Scripture Matthew 12:29-30, Matthew 3:12, 2 Thessalonians 2:1 describes Christ gathering Christian believers as a harvest.

Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting) —Feast of Trumpets

Scripture Leviticus 23:23-25 and Numbers 29:1-6 ( was changed from Nisan 1) Popularly called (as in Ez 40:1) Rosh Hashana (The head of the year) because the Old Testament gave no specific reason for shouting.

Chuck Missler's article
The Riddle of Rosh Hashanna

Christians, however, have a very good reason for shouting. Some have named this date as the true birthday of Jesus. More importantly, in Scripture 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,..., and with the (shofar) trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds.” This event Christians call the "Rapture".
Sep 30, '98 10 Tishri Ethanim is preceded by Yomim Noraim, the seven "Days of Affliction".

Yom Kippur—Day of Attonement

Scripture Leviticus 23:26-32 The day that the High Priest sacrificed the scape goat to impart all of the sins of the people, then sprinkled its blood on the Mercy seat in the holiest place in the Temple.

Modern observance substitutes the "three T's": "Tefilah," (prayer), "Teshuvah," (repentance) and "Tzedakah" (charity).

Day of Atonement, Day of Covering

Sukkot—Feast of Tabernacles

Scripture Leviticus 23:33-43 (living in booths as a reminder of forefathers' nomadic life wandering in the wilderness. During this time, they lived in tents or tabernacles because they moved regularly. God's presence was seen among them as a bright cloud that shaded them by day and, a fiery cloud that kept them warm at night. God also supernaturally provided all of their food and water for those forty years. This feast looks forward to the time that we will live in God's presence, and He will care for us like a loving father.

Services revolve around the waving of the LuLav (The 4 species), the etrog (citrus) & the Sukkah

(Ingathering) Thanksgiving for harvest.

Scripture Zechariah 14:16,17 foretells that one day all nations will be required to honor this feast.

14 Nisan


ScripturePassover Seder commemorates deliverance of Isrealites from Egypt. When the Death-angel smote the first-born of Egypt, he "passed over" the houses of Isreal with lamb's blood on the doorpost. (ScriptureExodus 12:13-17) in fulfillment of prophesy to Abraham in ScriptureGenesis 15:13-14 and Numbers 9)

Jewish teaching was that Elijah would come again at Passover. This is why a chair is reserved for Elijah at every seder table. Other part of the Passover speak of the Messiah:

  • All leavened bread is removed from the home because leaven symbolizes sin. The events of the freeing of G-d's people are told, dinner is served, and 4 traditional cups of wine are served.
  • the Zroah (which means outstretched arm, the method of cooking the sacrificed lamb)
  • the afikomen (which means He came) Matzah is broken, wrapped in a linen napkin, and hidden to be "brought back" after dinner.
  • the Matzah Tosh, a 3 chamber bag holding 3 pieces of unleavened bread, symbolizes G-d's unity.

    John the Baptist (who Scripture Luke 1:17 notes "goes forth" in the strength and power of Elijah) born on this day.

    Poem: "Easter Song"
    by Angela L. Conley

    An innocent man was crucified
    So that our sins would be denied

    The only son of God became
    The path for our stained souls reclaim

    And he was put to death that day
    And thus became cruel death's prey

    They laid him in a borrowed tomb
    They thought that they had sealed his doom

    But on the third day he did rise
    And now on this day creation cries

    That Jesus is again alive
    And with his father in the skies.

    “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see.” — Hebrews 11:1
