"The Holy Days"
apostle Daryl Hackworth
Greetings in Yeshua Ha'Mashiach's mighty name! Thank you for this opportunity to share with the Body of Christ.
THE HOLY DAYS
Leviticus 23:1-2 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “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 feasts.
We as the Children of Yahweh are in the midst of what I believe is the most powerful apostolic and prophetic time in history. The events that are now occurring are spoken of throughout the Scriptures. It is important that we, as believers, adhere to the Holy Days which are an integral part of understanding the end times. That being said, there are those who dismiss not only the Holy Days, but the majority of the Old Testament by reasoning that Yeshua(Jesus) has done away with the law. However, Yeshua himself speaks the opposite concerning himself.
Matthew 5:17 (NKJV)“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.
The Common English Version coins Matthew 5:17 thusly: Don’t suppose that I came to do away with the Law and the Prophets. I did not come to do away with them, but to give them their full meaning.
Also, in Leviticus 23:2, Adonai(L-rd) says that “these are MY feast.” These Holy Days belong to Yahweh, but He chooses to share them with us to not only bless us, but to bring us into a greater understanding of His purpose and strategies for the end times.
There are several days occurring yearly that have been designated by Elohim(G-d) as mo’edim(appointed times). Although there are some who consider these days “Jewish Holidays,” these days are significant to all believers. All of the Biblical mo’edim are prophetic and reveal great truth about the plans and counsel of Adonai Elohim(the L-rd G-d). They are also referred to as “the feasts of the Lord.
As summer closes, we recognize the Hebraic month of Elul. Elul is a time of preparation for the coming Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah(New YearsDay), Yom Kippur(the Day of Atonement), and Sukkot(the feast of Tabernacles). During Elul, the Hebraic understanding encourages us to take time for meditation, self evaluation, and personal reflection concerning our actions and to seek forgiveness from ABBA(Our Heavenly Father), and those we have wronged or otherwise “missed the mark” in our interactions or behaviors.
Rosh Hashanah is celebrated on Tishrei 1st and 2nd.This Holy Day, usually falls in September or October and marks the beginning of a ten day period of prayer, self-examination and repentance, which culminates on the fast day of Yom Kippur. The ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur are referred to as the “Days of Awe” or the High Holy Days. Rosh Hashanah also remembers the creation of the universe by Adonai. The term “Rosh Hashanah” may be interpreted as “the head of the year.” This year, 2021(5782 on the Hebraic Calendar) Rosh Hashanah is celebrated on September 6-8.
Rosh Hashanah represents the day that Elohim(G-d) began to rule as King of the Universe. When Adam first opened his eyes and human consciousness was born, he immediately understood that Adonai created all things, including himself.
Psalms 47:5 celebrates the coronation of Yahweh as king:
God has gone up with a shout(teruah),
The Lord with the sound of a trumpet(shofar).
The sound of the shofar is meant to awaken our consciousness that Adonai is King of the Universe. The blowing of the shofar is also symbolic of the rapture of the bride of Messiah!
Psalms 89:15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your Presence.
The year 5782 is of significant importance both apostolically and prophetically. All Hebrew letters have a numerical value and all numbers are represented by a letter. There are many hidden truths revealed when we understand this concept. The Hebrew letter pe(pronounced pay) has a numerical value of 80. Pe represents the mouth. The number 2 is represented by the letter bet(pronounced bait). Bet represents a house.Bet is also a picture of Yeshua as Master of the House. This concept becomes even more evident through the realization that the Bible begins with the letter bet. Bet is the first letter of the Bible. Genesis 1:1 begins with the word “Bereshit.” The letter bet is open on the left side. Hebrew is written and read from right to left. This denotes that everything written in the bible following comes out of bet(Yeshua). To put it another way, everything came forth out of Yeshua.
John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Yom Kippur(the Day of Atonement) is commemorated on Tishrei 10, 5782(September 15-16,2021). Yom Kippur is considered the holiest day of the Hebraic year and provides prophetic insight regarding the Second Coming of the Messiah, the restoration of the nation of Israel, and the final judgement of the world. It is also a day that reveals the High Priestly work of Yeshua Ha’Mashich(Jesus Christ) as our High Priest after the order of Melchisedec.
Hebrews 6:19-20 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
The Hebraic word for atonement is “kapar”(pronounced kaw-far). The definition of kapar is to cover, purge, make reconciliation, to coat or cover over with pitch.
Exodus 30:10 And Aaron shall make atonement upon its horns once a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonement; once a year he shall make atonement upon it throughout your generations. It is most holy to the Lord.”
In the Old Testament, Aaron was initially given the charge of presenting the atonement offering before the Lord. After Aaron, the High Priest was to present the atonement offering yearly. This was a type of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach(Christ). All the feast of the Lord point to the Messiahship of Yeshua. But now Yeshua Ha’Mashiach has become our High Priest forever. He also makes the blood sacrifice by becoming the lamb.
There are 7 blessings of the Atonement that belong to those who honor this appointed time as “Holy unto the L-rd.” As we turn to the L-rd, according to Joel 2:12-13, we acknowledge the cleansing and forgiveness we receive through the blood sacrifice of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach. This opens the portal by which the 7 Blessings flow. These 7 blessings are spoken of in the book of Joel in the second chapter. The Blessings are as follows:
A Double Portion Joel 2:23
Financial Abundance Joel 2:24
Restoration Joel 2:25
Special Miracles Joel 2:26
God's Divine Presence Joel 2:27
Blessings Upon Your Family Joel 2:28
Deliverance Joel 2:32
The Festival of Sukkot(the feast of tabernacles) is not a one day observance, but a week long celebration. Sukkot is commemorated from the 15th thru the 22nd of Tishrei(September 20th-27th, 2021). The sukkah(singular form of sukkot) represents a mobile dwelling. Later, Moses received instructions regarding building G-d’s sukkah(tabernacle). Sukkot is a reminder of the protection Yahweh provided for the Children of Israel during their 40 years in the wilderness. After entering the promised land, Sukkot became a celebration of the harvest called Chag ha-Asif(the festival of the Ingathering or Harvest).
Since Sukkot follows the Days of Awe and Repentance, it represents the time of restored fellowship with Adonai(theL-rd). In truth, the tabernacle represents G-d’s presence among His redeemed people (Exodus 29:44-45). Tabernacle is often understood as a noun. However, tabernacle is also a verb meaning to abide or dwell with.
The Holy Days focus on the L-rd as our Creator, our Judge and the One who atones for our sins. Sukkot is the time when we celebrate all that the L-rd has done for us. Apostolically and prophetically understood, the seven days of Sukkot picture the world to come, and the 1,000 year Millennial Kingdom age. Sukkot also encompasses the principle of John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
It is important that these Holy Days be recognized as precursors to the fulfillment of the last days. Everything Elohim instituted was and is for our learning and growth as we see the day approaching! Be blessed in Yeshua Ha’Hamishach’s name! Shalom
