Well, here you go!...This is 'PART 1# of a 4# PART SERIES' of a 'MORE COMPREHENSIVE, INDEPTH STUDY OF GOD'S ENTERNAL PROPHETIC APPOINTED TIMES'! So Relax, find yourself a seat, grab some Paper and a Pencil (BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO NEED THEM)! 'THERE'S A LOT OF INFORMATION TO BE HARVESTED IN THIS 4# PART SERIES'!
This Series will take us from ‘The Annunciation of The Feast of Trumpets, Leading Us Through ‘The Terrible Days Of Awe which Is Completed With ‘The Day of Atonement, Which Prepares Us For The Feast Of The Nations (GENTILES) Called: Tabernacles’!
In Part 1#, we will concentrate on laying a Foundation for ‘All 7 of God’s Appointed Feasts’, and introducing ‘The Feast of Trumpets – ‘Rosh HaShanah’.
However, before the instructions on the Festivals are given to God's People at Mount Sinai, we find the Festivals mentioned in general at creation. In The Book of Genesis 1:14:
God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for 'SIGNS and for SEASONS', and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.”
On the 4th Day of Creation God created the lights in the sky as markers for 'SEASONS, DAYS, and YEARS'. However, we miss something in the Hebrew with almost all English translations. “Seasons” is the Hebrew word: 'MOADIM' (מעדים) and this is the first occurrence of this Word. 'MOADIM' is the plural of the Hebrew Word: 'MO’ED', which means, (A SET TIME), coming from the root: 'YA’AD ’ (TO SET, DESIGNATE), יעד). Without a Doubt, Biblically this points out that in every other instance where the plural form ‘MOADIM’ appears in the Hebrew of the Torah English Bibles, Translate it as: (FEASTS or FESTIVALS), and therefore it should be Translated as: (FEASTS or FESTIVALS) here in Genesis 1 as well. Therefore, with this Biblical Textual Truth, the more accurate Biblical Text would be rendered 'And let them be for 'SIGNS and for FESTIVALS', and for days and years.' This is how (Genesis 1:14) is Translated in the 'Ancient Aramaic Biblical Text' called: (Targum Pseudo-Jonathan Genesis 1:14):
And the Lord said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens, to distinguish between the day and the night; and let them be for 'SIGNS and for FESTIVAL TIMES', and for the numbering by them the account of days, and for the sanctifying of the beginning of months, and the beginning of years, the passing away of months, and the passing away of years, the revolutions of the sun, the birth of the moon, and the revolving of (SEASONS).”
This means that the Festivals of The LORD are 1st introduced and alluded to here in CREATION. Although THE FESTIVALS were later committed and entrusted to the His People at Mount Sinai, they contain universal Truths and Applications for 'ALL MANKIND TO CELEBRATE.
God set up These Holy Appointments with his people from 'THE BEGINNING OF CREATION'. It’s no wonder then that we find The Festivals alluded to in THE BOOK OF GENESIS. THEREFORE, IF GOD HAS INVITED US TO HIS ‘FESTIVE CELEBRATION’, DON’T YOU THINK WE SHOULD ATTEND?
