Spring feasts

Pesach

Pesach (Passover) is the first of the seven feasts of the LORD that GOD proclaimed holy and ordained the children of Israel to observe forever (Leviticus 23:4-5; Numbers 9:2-3; Exodus 12:14). It is a festival of deliverance from physical and spiritual bondage.
Pesach (Passover) carries a powerful message for today. It is foundational to our understanding of the LORD’s Supper, the Upper Room and even the MESSIAH’s death.

Feast of Unleavened Bread

The Feast of Unleavened Bread is a reminder of GOD’s miraculous deliverance of the children of Israel from Egyptian bondage. The second of the seven biblical feast, it is also known as Hag Hamatzot, named after the Matzah or unleavened bread required to be eaten during this time. It recalls when the Hebrews fled from Egypt during the night of deliverence, there was not even enough time for their bread dough to rise. So, this seven-day feast in which unleavened bread is eaten commemorates the haste in which they left Egypt in freedom.

Feast of Firstfruits

Firstfruits or Sfirat Haomer (Counting of the Sheaf or Omer) signaled the ripening of barley grain in Israel. Barley was the first grain ready for harvest after the winter planting. Firstfruits, like the principle of the firstborn, (either man or beast) belong to GOD. A firstfruits is a time of looking forward with anticipation for what is yet to come. For the sheaf of barley represented the whole harvest to come. It served as a pledge to the faithfulness of GOD.

Shavuot

Shavuot, also known as "the Feast of Weeks", "the Day of Firstfruits" and "Pentecost, is a time to thank YHVH for His physical provision as well as the revelation of HIS Word and HIS Spirit. It was at this time that HE gave the Israelites the Torah of Truth and it was at this same time of year that the early church experienced the outpouring of HIS Holy Spirit.
