THE FEASTS OF THE LORD FULFILLED WITH CHRIST'S FIRST ADVENTThere are seven Feasts of the Lord, known as the Spring Feasts, which symbolize events that God has ordained must take place. Passover was fulfilled with the Crucifixion of Jesus (1 Cor. 5:7 - "Christ our Passover")! Unleavened Bread was fulfilled in the burial of the "unleavened" (sinless) Christ (Heb. 4:15 - "yet without sin")! First Fruits was fulfilled with the Resurrection of Christ (1 Cor. 15:20 - "Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept.")!
ONE FEAST OF THE LORD IS BEING FULFILLED BY THE CHURCH AGEThe Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost, marked the beginning of the Church Age (Acts 2:1-47)! When this age will be complete is unknown (Mk. 13:32). What we do know is that it will end with Christ removing the Church via the Rapture of the Church (Jn. 14:1-6; 1 Cor. 15:50-54; 1 Th. 4:13-18; etc.)!
THE FEASTS OF THE LORD YET TO BE FULFILLED BY CHRISTI do not want to be dogmatic about the last three Feasts of the Lord, known as the Fall Feasts, but I believe they will be fulfilled as follows:
The Feast of Trumpets (plural) will begin with the trumpet at the Rapture of the Church (1 Cor. 15:52; 1 Th. 4:16) immediately followed by the assembly call of the trumpet to gather all Israel back into the land of promise (Joel 2:15). The false messiah, the Antichrist, will covenant with Israel for a seven-year period of peace (Dan. 9:27), and the "trumpet" represents the safe assembling of Israel.
The Feast of the Day of Atonement has to do with Israel being humbled by their awareness of sin; I believe this occurs mid-way through the seven-year Tribulation, on the day they see the Antichrist seated in the Temple declaring himself to be god (Dan. 9:27; Mt. 24:15; Rev. Ch. 13). Romans 11:25 says of Israel: "...that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in." Their "eyes being opened," they spend the last three and a half years in hiding (Mt. 24:16-21; Rev. 12:6; etc.)!
The Feast of Tabernacles is the easiest of the Fall Feasts to interpret (at least I think so). It is a picture of Christ's Second Coming, and as "Emmanuel," He dwells on earth during His Millennial Kingdom (Rev. 20:1-15)!
We are in the Church Age, and time is rapidly running out before this age ends. The sign are everywhere!!! Christ has provided the free gift of salvation to all who will put their trust in Him. He died for your sins; He was buried, but God raised Him from the dead, to have authority over all of creation (1 Cor. 15:1-4; 25-27; Eph. 1:22; Heb. 2:8)!!! Call upon the name of the Lord today, and you will have eternal life with Him (Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 10:9-10; etc.)!!!!!!!
