Our Personal Journey Through the Feasts of the Lord and Holy Convocations

Intro: Futurist have very little to claim as being in the past other than the Spring Feasts of the Lord that could be seen it a literal sense while the Fall feasts and events were Spiritual in nature in the unseen realm during the first century. When you think about it the Blowing of Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Feast of tabernacles were generally accomplished in the unseen realm but the Spring Feasts were in the seen realm.

The Spring Feasts and Holy Convocations

1 The Spring Feasts and Holy Convocations were fulfilled with the antitype when the Church would receive the forgiveness of sins through the Lord’s Passover, and were delivered out from the Spiritual part of death “that separated mankind from God that came from Adam” after the Messiah Jesus Christ came in His first coming. 2 Death reigned from Adam to Moses in a sense that it was through the Old Covenant which began with Moses that brought life through being forgiven through the process of sacrifices of shedding blood from animals as a substitute for humans that were required by the laws of the Old Covenant. 3 Jesus ended that process once He was crucified as the Passover Lamb for the sins of the whole world. 

4 The Feast of Un-leaven Bread was symbolic of how Jesus purged the leaven out of the first century believers from false doctrines of men. 5 Water baptism was a sign and testimony to others that a believer in Christ was set free from the curse of the law and delivered out from the bondage of the Old Covenant and was the antitype of the children of Israel coming out of the bondage of slavery from Egypt where they had to purge their houses of all leaven that was in them. 6 This kind of deliverance was on a personal level and not to be confused for the world wide level that would come at the end of the Age for complete salvation from the Age of Corruption when the Holy Convocation Day of Atonement would fulfill according to:

Romans 8:because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.. 

7 We experience a personal deliverance from the bondage of sin when we return back to God like the Prodigal Son did but there is something much bigger going on with putting out leaven. Jesus warned of the the leaven of the Pharisees and Scribes or doctrines of men, because only the true will set us free.

Matthew 16:11How is it you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread?—but to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 12Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

1 Corinthians 5:7Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed or us.

8 The first century believers through water baptism died symbolically and were resurrected into Christ’s death and resurrection. 9 They were free from the bondage and slavery to the laws of sin and death which mankind inherited from Adam. 10 Those from Israel were set free from the Old Covenant laws and the Gentiles were set free from the laws that they had unto themselves all serve as a type of what we do today as the antitype.

Romans 6: 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

11 The Holy Convocation Day of First Fruits is where resurrection life began with Christ as the firstborn resurrected and all those in Matthew 27: 51-53 from the nation of Israel that were the First Fruits were resurrected from being a disembodied soul that slept in Hades, to having a Spiritual body that Ascended into Heaven after Christ to reigned with Him there. 12 Then after the Day of Pentecost Spiritual resurrection life carried on through for those who were physically alive that came to Christ after being filled with the Holy Spirit during the first century to AD70 were the First Fruits who had the Spirit, which were all part of the first resurrection. 13 They reigned Spiritually with Christ in Heaven who was a life-giving Spirit while they lived on the Earth in their physical bodies.

14 All of the Feasts of the Lord and Holy Convocations that the children of Israel had to observe for over 1300 years, foreshadowed its fulfillment in the first century. 15 The process of redemption which was fulfilled for the first century Church was fulfilled for them, not us born in the Age that was to come where all things have been made new. 16 So now let’s now draw from the typology from the first century fulfillments of the Feasts of the Lord and Holy Convocations for the world after AD70 in the New Heaven & Earth and apply it to our own personal lives. 17 The Feast of Pentecost was a summer feast in the middle of the first century that linked the transitional period from the cross to the end of the Age in AD70 when the Fall Feast and Holy Convocations began. 18 After the Holy Convocation Day of Atonement all things were made new in God’s new creation for the New Heaven and Earth.

19 To begin with we look at the Lord’s Passover and the Feast of Unleaven Bread that had the Holy Convocation Day of First Fruits within that Holy Week of the Feast of Unleaven Bread where all three events were kept. 

20 The Lord’s Passover: has been already taken care by Christ bringing salvation to the whole world for sins through the sledding of His blood. 21 Whether they be sins committed under the Old Covenant laws the the nation of Israel had, or the by laws Gentiles had that were unto themselves. 22 At the end of the old Age in AD70 all things were made new; Christ made all of mankind alive with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire that came from His presence after the Temple no longer stood; which was after the resurrection of the just and the unjust took place for the Great White Thrown Judgment. 23 With this being established in our faith we can apply our new kind of faith in the New Heaven and Earth to where we begin life alive and in God’s presence like Adam and Eve had before they sinned. 24 That is, until we go our own way and become like the Prodigal Son and have to go through the refining fire until we returned back to our Everlasting Father Christ and asked to be forgiven.

25 The Feast of Unleaven bread: can be applied to our personal lives by resting in Christ and abiding in Him, after removing the leaven out of our lives like Israel had to remove it from the houses just before the Passover. Unleaven bread speaks of non activity and that rest we can have, that pulls us out of the refining fire of the Holy Spirit. 26 When God delivered His people out from Egypt, the scriptures called being in Egypt the iron furnace. 27 During to early years of our life we go astray and Spiritually we go through the refining fire even if we are not aware of it, until we start to believe and have faith in God and His word. 28 We require time to Spiritually grow and learn a lot of things before we get out there and be active so we do not misrepresent what we stand for and cause more harm than good.

29 The Holy Convocation Day of First Fruits: comes into play when we begin to realize our faith has begun to grow and we are Spiritually alive with resurrection life, yet still not ready to be active because this day was within the week of the Feast of Unleaven Bread which was not active. 30 This is like a young person who has reached the age of accountability or someone just out of boot camp ready to go into action and well trained but has not been assigned a mission, yet ready to go.

31 Just like the children of Israel who were in the wilderness with Moses were not to start the Holy Convocation Day of First Fruits until they were in the promised land and after the first harvest. 32 This in antitype speaks to me of us being not ready to go into ministry with the understanding that all things were made new for the New Heaven and Earth until we grow Spiritually. 33 The Passover and Feast of Un-Leaven and the Holy Convocation Day of First Fruits were in the spring season and all of them occurred within one week known as the Holy Week; that week was separated by 50 days from the Holy Convocation Day of First Fruits to the Feast of Pentecost which speaks of the time of growth we have wait until we can be effective and active.

34 The Feast of Pentecost: is all about being active because in that Feast two loafs of leaven bread were brought as new grain offering to the Lord. 35 Leaven speak of being active and rising up with resurrection life while alive on Earth in the here and now. 36 I see the two loafs as Christ in you empowered with the Holy Spirit and Fire sent into a mission and accomplishing great things after being trained and ready to go into action  as part of the Former Rain, but in the latter years of ministry as the Latter Rain. 37 As the power of the Holy Spirit refines us believers, He then works through us as a flame of the refining fire to those around us during our lifetime on Earth leading and guiding us into the truth and convincing us of any sin.

38 There is no better example of going through the refining fire than as seen in what Jesus said in the parable of the Prodigal Son. 39 When we enter into faith and believe in Christ our Spirit is set free from the fear of the “Spiritual” second death that would follow with not believing in Him for the hereafter. 40 We are in a sense resurrected back to Spiritual life like the Prodigal Son was after we go astray in the world apart from God. 41 Unlike the Old Covenant when they were considered Spiritual dead in Adam’s sin and death the Prodigal Son was born Spiritually alive before he left his Father’s house, then Spiritually died. 42 He then went out into the world to become part of the world, and became as dead to his Father. 43 When the Prodigal Son returned to his Father, his Father said to the older brother: It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.

The Fall Feast and Holy Convocations

44 Everyone born after AD70 did not have to be delivered out from the bondage of the old Age of Corruption, so everyone since then and all here today have no need to be delivered out from Adam’s sin and death; and all were made alive by Christ from birth. 45 Though we as people here in the New Heaven and Earth still need to come into the faith, hope and love and believe in God in order to escape or be pulled out from the refining fire. 46 Therefore the Spring Feasts and Holy Convocations still have a role to play in our lives, but in a new way as mentioned above; but where we see a fire offering within most of those events we know that refining takes place there.

47 The Holy Spirit enables us to do God’s will which will be rewarded after we are no longer alive on the Earth, and we will not have to wait in Hades for a Spiritual body for the hereafter; after physical death we will instantly have one. 

48 The Holy Convocation Day of Blowing Trumpets: was fulfilled when the nation of Israel along with its Temple and Jerusalem were destroyed, in order for the end of the Age to come to an end and the New Heaven and to begin. 49 Likewise we must physically die like the Temple had to be destroyed, then face the Judgment seat of Christ and receive our rewards like they did when the Great White Throne Judgment on the Holy Convocation Day of Atonement was being fulfilled; but it will not be a corporate event like it was, it will be individual event when people pass away.

50 The Holy Convocation Day of Atonement:  The power of the Holy Spirit enabled them in the first century to do greater works which they would be rewarded for at the end of their life, when full redemption would come after the Holy Convocation day of Atonement was fulfilled in AD70. 51 After AD70 the power of the Holy Spirit works in a similar new way except Judgment day happens after we physically die, instead of the Great White Thrown Judgment where the whole world was judged in AD70. 52 After we physically die is when we will stand before Christ in the Spiritual realm with a new Spiritual body that was prepared for us, and be rewarded for the things we have done while we were alive on Earth. 53 Those who are worth will have an immortal Spiritual body; but those who are not worth will only have a mortal Spiritual body that will be destroyed with the soul but the conscience “Spirit” will be tormented forever.

Hebrews 9: 27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.

54 The Feast of Tabernacles: This is both for here and now, and when we enter into the final rest in the life in the hereafter. 55 The Feast of Tabernacles antitype has been going on since AD70 in the unseen realm in the New Heaven and Earth; it is the only feast that will remain in the life hereafter and it will continue forever as an ongoing feast of celebration of praise and worshipping God in the Kingdom of Heaven.


56 The Lord’s Passover in antitype is where after Jesus sets the first century Church free from personal bondage of sin and forgives. 57 Then as the Holy Spirit empowered the first century Church, we are also are empowered by the Holy Spirit and go through the process of the refining fire. 58 Then at the end of our life with the antitype of the Holy Convocation Day of Blowing Trumpets when the Temple no longer stood, we also physical die,r’ but a believer does not die Spiritually in the second death like a non believer would. 59 Then we receive our rewards as other overcomer’s did. 60 The antitype of the Holy Convocation Day of Atonement represented for the just and the unjust, we will be separated as sheep from the goats and remain in the Kingdom of Heaven, while the goats who dwelt in Outer Darkness, go to the Lake of Fire.  


61 During this time in our lives right now, I can see it as a process of growth in our faith like seen here in 1 John 2: where we start with not being active “Unleaven” while we rest in grow in Christ as children; then active “Leaven” with the Former Rain power of Pentecost with the young men; then those who were Fathers at an ripened age like the harvest of fruit when the Feast of Tabernacles took place empowered with the Latter Rain of the Holy Spirit.
