Feasts of the Lord


Lords supper:    1Co 11:20  When ye come together therefore into one place,           this   is not to eat the Lord's supper.

                1Co 11:21  For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper:

                and one is hungry, and another is drunken.


               1Co 11:24  And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat:

               this is my body,       which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of


               1Co 11:25  After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had

               supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as

               oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

               See the Lord's supper paper.


First high day Lev 23:6  And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast

               of  unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened


               Lev 23:7  In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no 

               servile work therein.   Leaving the ways of Egypt for the ways of God was the

               purpose of the exodus and represents a type of repentance.  


              Act 2:38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one

              of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall

              receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.   Peter gave the essence of the first

              three high days in this one verse with the Holy Spirit made available on the first

              New Testament  Pentecost. 


Second high day:  Num 28:25  And on the seventh day ye shall have an holy

              convocation; ye shall do no servile work.  Israel went through the sea on this



              1Co 10:1  Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how

              that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

              1Co 10:2  And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;


              Act 2:38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every

              one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,


Third high day:  Lev 23:15  And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after

               the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering;

               seven  sabbaths shall be complete:

               Lev 23:16  Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye

               number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.

               Lev 23:17  Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two          tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven,  

            they are the firstfruits unto the LORD.

            Lev 23:21  And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an

               holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a

               statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.


              Jas 1:18  Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we

              should be a kind of  firstfruits of his creatures.

              Rev 14:4  These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are

              virgins.  These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth.

              These were redeemed   from among men, being the firstfruits unto

              God and to the Lamb.

           1Co 15:51  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we

              shall all be changed,

              1Co 15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for

              the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we

              shall be changed.

              1Th 4:16  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,

              with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in

              Christ shall rise first:


              Rev 11:15  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great

              voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the

              kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and


              Rev 11:18  And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the

              time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest

              give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints,

              and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them

              which destroy the earth.


Forth high day:  Lev 23:24  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the

              seventh month, in       the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a

              memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.  Blowing of

              trumpets is a gross mistranslation.   The Young's literal translation is much


              Lev 23:24  `Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on

              the first of the month, ye have a sabbath, a memorial of shouting, a holy


              Strong's definition of shouting is:    H8643  ter-oo-aw'  From H7321;  clamor,

              that is,  acclamation of joy or a battle cry;

              There is only one place in the New Testament that can be a

              fulfillment of this high day.  There are no battle cries anywhere in the

              New Testament.  There is only one acclamation of joy in the New

              Testament and it is the greatest expression of joy in all the Bible.

              Rev 19:6  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as

              the voice of   many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings,

              saying,  Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

              Rev 19:7  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for

              the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself


              See "The Day of Teruah" paper


Fifth high day:  Lev 23:27  Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall

               be a day of   atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and

               ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the


      Shortly after the marriage of the lamb Jesus comes to earth, with his wife, to destroy the working of Satan, the Beast and the False Prophet.

       Rev 19:11  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

      Rev 19:14  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

       Rev 19:15  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.      For much detail see the "The Day of Atonement" paper

Sixth high day:  Lev 23:34  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth

                day of this  seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days

                unto the LORD

      Lev 23:35  On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

      Lev 23:41  And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year.  It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

       Joh 7:37  In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

       Joh 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

      The last day, that great day of the feast is the great white throne   judgment period of time. 

Seventh high day:  Lev 23:36  Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire

               unto the       LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto

               you; and ye shall offer an  offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a

               solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
