Holy Days 2020

To simplify the biblical holy days, biblical feast seasons can be broken up into two parts – Spring Harvest Season and Fall Harvest Season. Spring Harvest Season (Click any…

The Sabbath: A better understanding!

As we grow in this walk we learn new things each and every day. I’ve learned so much since I first started this website in January of 2017. In fact, I have been on a whirlwind learning and development journey. One new revelation that I have come to since I began is about Sabbath and what it actually is. In studying Hebrew and writing my upcoming Hebrew lesson books, I learned…

Heg Hasaccot: Feast of Booths

January 25, 2018

The Feast of Booths/Coverings is only five days after the Day of Atonement. It is an eight-day sabbath, whereby, no one worked for profit and the Israelite community prepared feasts and animal skins daily. On the eighth day, they rested from their communal activities. Unlike the Day of Atonement, the Feast of Booths is a holy observance designated only for Israel’s participation. (Lev. 23:42) It also specifies that Israel was…

Yowm Hacafarim: Day of “Atonement”

January 24, 2018

As I continue to study these holy days, I am learning that they first had a practical application before representing a spiritual truth. Take, for example, the passover. Initially, it wasn’t a holy day in the sense we think of it today but a life or death situation in which our ancestors were to be obedient to the instructions of God for their survival. Likewise, the first Sabbath was the day Yahuwah…

Shabatown Zacarown: Sabbath of Remembrance

January 11, 2018

Leviticus doesn’t say much about this observance; however, a more elaborate instruction is provided in Numbers 29. According to Leviticus, this Sabbath of Remembrance only had three instructions. The first is a grieving or shouting set-apart meeting. Most translations translate the word תרועה, which is literally “shout”  or “you will shout her” or “she will shout” to “blowing trumpets”. The word is related to grieving, not trumpets. Additionally, the word for…

Feast of First Fruits

This observance was specifically given because Israel would enter into the land which was given to them by God. (Leviticus 23:10) On the surface, when reading the Hebrew, it’s very practical in nature. Contrarily, English makes it sound like some strange ritual. Ultimately, Yahuwah gives Israel step by step instructions for reaping and celebrating their first harvest in the promised land annually. They are told when and how to process the…

Feast of Unleavened Bread

January 8, 2018

Closely tied to the Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a seven-day observance. According to Exodus 12:18, it begins on the evening of the 14th day of the first month, meaning it occurs concurrently with Passover. However, Leviticus 23:5 says that it begins on the 15th day of the first month. Due to this, some people recognize the feast beginning on the Passover and others as beginning on the…

Pesach: The Passover

January 3, 2018

The Passover was first practiced just before the Exodus of God’s people out of Egypt. For practical reasons Yahuwah, through Moses, ordered the Israelites to get dressed and ready to run and to eat quickly, because it was Yahuwah’s Passover. (Exodus 12:11) During this event, Passover lambs were slaughtered to be eaten and their blood was spread on the doorposts of all who heeded Yahuwah’s warning. Interestingly, the Passover was…

Reshown Chadesh: The First Month/New Year

January 1, 2018

While not technically a feast day, it is a commandment for Israel to observe the month of Abib as the first month of the year. This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. – Exodus 12:2 And Moses said unto the people, remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of…
