Promise 1: “Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever. (Gen. 13:14–15.)
Promise 2: “And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.” (Gen. 13:16.)
Promise 3: “I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.” (Gen. 17:7.)
Promise 4: “In thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.” (Gen. 22:18.)
Abraham’s and Sarah’s son and grandson, Isaac and Jacob, received similar promises and became subject to the same covenants and obligations Abraham had received. (See Gen. 26:3–4; Gen. 28:13–14; Gen. 35:11–12.) In like manner, the covenant was renewed at Sinai with the descendants of these three men, the house of Israel. (Ex. 19:1–8). By inheritance, those who descend from that lineage receive the same blessings and enter into the same obligations as their great forefathers.
The Israelite 7 Feast Days
The Feast of Weeks is connected to the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is connected to Passover. All three Spring Holy days follow each other starting with Passover on the 14th day of Abib, FUB on the 15th and the FOW on the 16th, which begins the countdown to Pentecost.
Passover Leviticus 23:5 - is celebrated as a reminder that Yeshua (Jesus) died to pay the penalty of our sins during His First Advent. The angel of death passed over the Israelite's houses that were covered with the blood of the Passover Lamb.
Romans 4:7 Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
Feast of Unleavened Bread Leviticus 23:6 - A reminder to keep pure, not letting sin in. When Yahweh (God) delivered the Israelites out from bondage He gave them the law and Feast Days to help them walk in the right way and to remember that He chose them. Continuing to obey the Word of Yahweh (God), is part of the commandments and connected to the Feast Days.
John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
2Thessalonians 1:8 (Yahshua will be returning with His malakiym-angels...) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Master Yahshua Christ:
1Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
Feast of Weeks/Wave Sheaf/Feast of Firstfruits Leviticus 23:10 - The Gospel is celebrated along with the resurrection of Yeshua (Jesus) the Christ from the dead. It is symbolic of the first fruits of Yahweh's (God's) calling and begins the 50-day countdown to Pentecost.
Pentecost Leviticus 23:15 - The Gospel is celebrated on Pentecost because when we do that which is right in the sight of Yahweh (God), you receive the Holy Spirit, which is promised to those who obey Him.
Acts 5:32 And we are His witnesses of these things; and also the Holy Spirit, whom God hath given to them that obey Him.
Feast of Trumpets Leviticus 23:24 - The Trumpet is a warning and call to preparation that Yeshua is coming. Time to repent for the reign of Yeshua is near.
Ezekiel 33:7 So you, O son of Adam, I have set you a watchman unto the house of Israel;
therefore you shall hear the word from My mouth, and warn them for Me.
Day of Atonement Leviticus 23:27 - A time to repent, and to fast, which means to humble yourselves and deny food, water, and worldly things for the day. Repentance is required in order to give yourself over to Christ.
Matthew 4:17 From that time, Yeshua (Jesus) began to preach and to say Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Feast of Tabernacles followed by The Last Great Day Leviticus 23:34 - The Feast of Tabernacles is a time to atone and repent. After you are now cleansed and can dwell in the safety of Christ. It is a reminder of when Yahweh (God) dwelt among our Israelite ancestors in the wilderness in tents, a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. It is also symbolic that we will dwell in safety when He returns in flaming fire.
Exodus 29:45 And I will dwell among the children of Israel and will be their God.
Psalm 61:4 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever: I will trust in the covert of Your wings. Selah.
1 John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
Every Feast Day is a part of the Gospel message, a message of regathering and reconciliation, education and teaching for all Israelites, both in Jerusalem and scattered around the world.
When The Gospel is preached, its message is to the children of Israel, because every one of these Feast Days is part of the plan of reunification between scattered Israelites and Yahweh (God).
Matthew 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
that Yeshua (Jesus) held them accountable to. Daniel 9 and many other 'helps' like the solar calendar with the festivals were left to help calculate the first comming of Yeshua (Jesus) so when the Saducees (government) and Pharasees (love God but...) rejected Yeshua as the Messiah there was no excuse. This is between them and God and we support them on their journey. Perhaps we should be consentrating on making sure Luke 19:43-44 does happen to us. There are many scriptures that alude to the possibility of this happening to those who are sleeping or drunk.
“In the days ahead your enemies will encircle you and close in on you from every side. You will be crushed and trampled down, along with all your children. Every lodge will fall, and not even one pole, log, or stone will be left standing against another. All of this will happen because you did not know it was your time for the Great Spirit to visit you.”
First Nations Version: An Indigenous Translation of the New Testament (Downers Grove, IL: IVP: An Imprint of InterVarsity Press, 2021), Lk 19:43–44.
Salvation is by call & faith alone (this one alone is going to bring much contention but I believe that having the wrong theology on this one is a huge problem as Christians have and still try to forcibly 'convert' unbelievers which only compounds the brewing hatred within that individual as the Christian come about it in a self-righteous manner.
The Covenant of Grace was given in the days of old and finalized when Jesus died, retrieved the keys Rev 1:17-18 from Sheol/Hades, and ascended to Heaven. God provided a way and Jesus finalized it by His death and resurrection.
The Mosaic Covenant was made with Ancient Israel
The Church has not replaced Israel in God’s program
The New Covenant is for all that God calls
The seed of Abraham and his household are the beloved/elected of Adonai Elohim (God) and will be saved no matter what.
All humans, especially Christians, are bound by the Noahide Covenant
The promises of Israel have not been transferred to the church
God does not condemn anyone, we condemn ourselves by denying God and Yeshua His Son that he sent to deliver us from eternal death.
