Signs of the coming fall are all around us and not surprisingly, it coincides with the timing of the three fall feasts that the Lord instructed His followers to observe in Leviticus 23. The fall feasts teach us of Jesus the Messiah’s second coming and our future with Him, just as the four spring feasts teach of His first advent and the continuing work of the Holy Spirit bringing in the harvest of souls.
The fall feasts begin with Rosh HaShanah (Feast of Trumpets, literally meaning “head of the year”). The shofar (trumpet) is blown to usher in the beginning of the civil year and to begin the Ten Days of Awe from Rosh HaShanah to Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). This is a time of introspection and self-examination as we anticipate the trumpet sounds that will announce the Lord’s arrival. Yom Kippur illustrates, like no other singular day in Israel’s calendar, man’s sinfulness and the need for pardon. Five days after Yom Kippur is Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles (or Booths), the last of Israel’s major feasts (the other two are Passover and Shavuot or Pentecost), which every Jewish male was required to attend. This was the time of the final ingathering of the harvest, anticipating the immense harvest of souls prior to Jesus’ return.
“I have never been more excited to see what God is going to do during the fall feasts of 2009”, reports Rabbi Curt Landry of House of David Ministries in Fairland. “I truly believe that prophetic things are taking place, and I am hopeful as I see signs of major spiritual releases to come… for a remnant of believers, a remnant that will return to His ways and truly trust in the Lord.”
