A daily break in your day to celebrate our salvation in Yeshua (Jesus) and our abundant life through the Torah

Keeping the Fall Feasts & Holy Days: When are they and how are they relevant today?

The Lord’s Holy Days, Feast Dates, Jewish Feasts, Appointed Times, Mo’edim — whatever term you use, don’t miss these days!  As a Christian seeking more intimacy in my walk with Yeshua, learning about, experiencing and keeping these feasts (including the Sabbath) has brought me not only into deeper intimacy with him, but God has showered me with new understanding, unexpected blessings, strengthened faith and fresh excitement daily.  I highly recommend it!

Included here is a list of my blog posts about the Fall Feasts.  

First of all, this quick reference guide shows the 2016 Hebrew and Gregorian dates, the Hebrew names, the purpose of the Feasts and Biblical instructions for observing them from a Messianic understanding. (See page 2 for the Fall Feasts.)

Although for me, the first time through the Feasts was more learning than experiencing, with each passing year, they grew in richness and revelation of Yeshua.  In the following posts I’ve attempted to share some of those insights in the hopes that you will be encouraged to start or continue your pursuit of your own journey into intimacy with him.

    • Good question, Bill. These dates follow the Messianic Calendar put out by Lion and Lamb Ministries. Here is how the dates are calculated: The Gregorian calendar is overlaid by the Jewish Diaspora calendar and modified to incorporate God’s appointed times as given by Moses and synchronized to start each Hebrew month on the new moon as it would be seen from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This new moon is calculated using lunar phase software that can pinpoint the moon’s position and phase at any time from any latitude/longitude on earth. I echo the statement included in their calendar, “Our calendar is not perfect, but our hope is that all Messianic believers who use our calendar will learn to keep the Sabbaths and the feasts in the way that the Lord has impressed upon us individually.”
