*** Passover – pictures the Death of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of Unleavened Bread – pictures the Burial of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of First Fruits – pictures the Resurrection of Christ
*** Pentecost – pictures the Descent of the Holy Spirit & the Birth of the Church
While the first four Festivals occur in close proximity, an entire season passes before the Fall Feasts begin. This long period represents the dispensation of grace that we now live in. The last three feasts (Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles) are celebrated in the Fall season and are yet to be fulfilled so they remain prophetic in nature.
*** Feast of the Trumpets – pictures the Rapture of the Church
*** Feast of Atonement – pictures the Second Coming of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of Tabernacles – pictures the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ
The final three feasts are also known as Rosh HaShanah (Feast of the Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Feast of Atonement), and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).
The Feast of Trumpets may soon find its prophetic fulfillment. Here are some reasons why the Rapture may occur during this Festival:
God’s plan for humanity is clearly found in Leviticus 23 through the establishment of the Seven Feasts. The number seven throughout the Bible represents completeness. Just as seven days finish a weekly cycle, so could seven festival occasions complete the work of God on Earth.
