For five years now, Calvary Chapel Iron River, where I am now pastor, has been teaching on various points of the Jewish roots of Christianity. It is well known that Jesus was a Jew, spoke Hebrew, had Jewish friends, went to the Temple, ate Jewish food, and lived in a Jewish culture. But, in our modern American Christian Steamroller, we often forget these frameworks that our Lord walked and taught in every day.
Whether it has been a teaching through Leviticus, celebrating Passover, or illuminating the priestly garments and Tabernacle articles in light of Yeshua’s fulfillment, we have always sought to go a little deeper into all types and shadows. There is a fingerprint of the Messiah on every jot and tittle of the Torah and all the rest of the OT.
“It just so happens,” and I love that term when God is involved, that we recently finished our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Job last week…and this coming Sunday night starts the Fall Festival season for the Jewish people with the first of three, the Feast of Trumpets. It is amazing, even in modern times, how much these “appointed days” speak of our Savior and King.
So, stay tuned, in the coming three weeks I will be posting notes and nuggets about the three Fall Feasts on the Jewish calendar including Trumpets, Yom Kippur, and Tabernacles. Coincidently (yet another “funny” term for the Faithful), these are the only feasts on the calendar which have not yet been fulfilled prophetically by Jesus—yet. We will take these next few weeks to see Him as our Great Trumpet Blast, our Atonement, and our Tabernacle among us.
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory…FOREVER!
