The Spring Festivals (Feasts) Of The Messiah

We continue to rightly divide the Word to glean a deeper knowledge of what YHWH is saying to us. Let’s look at the first verse in Leviticus 23 (New King James Version). In researching some of the key words (underlined below) we see that YHWH himself has sent out a special invitation to us to partake of His feast days. Until a year ago I had no knowledge or understanding of these “appointments”, however, as we dive deeper into the Word we find that the invitation was right under our nose and we did not see it.

Feasts of the LORD

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘The feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My [appointed] feasts.

·       Feast: Moed מוֹעֵד
Strong’s #4150 an appointment, i.e. a fixed time or season; also a signal (as appointed
beforehand):--appointed (sign, time)

Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide
the day from the night and let them be for signs <owth>, and for seasons <mow`ed>,
and for days, and years:

Strong’s #226. אוֹת  'owth, (in the sense of appearing); a signal

·       Convocation: miqra' מִקְרָא
Strong’s #4744 from 7121; something called out, i.e. a public meeting, also a rehearsal:

·       Proclaim: qara' קָרָא
Strong’s #7121 Root word (the idea of accosting a person met); to call out to (address by
name), them that are bidden, invite, mention, publish, read,

Mt 22:3,4 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the
wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell
them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings
are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

Question: Do you agree or disagree that the invitation is still valid and extended to us (Christians)? If you agree please state why? If you do not agree please state why?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
