What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

A thorough study (ology) of the end times (eschatos) must first entail a thorough study of how God foretells what he is going to do, i.e. Bible prophecy. Instead we often chide with his disciples, “Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world?” (Matt.24:3b). The seven feasts of the LORD described in Lev.23 are an excellent primer for understanding how God foretells what is coming. Each feast involves a holy convocation (a summoned assembly announced with trumpet), and a holy sabbath day wherein no servile work was done. These sabbath days are over and above the weekly sabbaths.

In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD's passover” (Lev.23:5). In God's creation, days start in the evening, i.e. the evening and the morning were the first day. A passover lamb was separated on the 10th of Abib and slain on the 14th (Exod.12). Jesus, our passover lamb (1Cor.5:7), was separated on Palm Sunday, and crucified on the 14th. The feast is prophetic; it foretold what God would do.

And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread” (23:6). This foretold that the perfect Lamb of God would be sinless, i.e. unleavened (1Cor.5:7-8). On the 23rd (after 8 unleavened days) the first fruit wave offering was made (23:10-11); it foretold and portrayed resurrection (1Cor.15:20-26). The wave loafs for the 4th feast, at Pentecost (23:15-21) did contain leaven, as did the church formed at Pentecost 1,500 years later (cf. Acts 2, Matt.13 parables).

As these four feasts foretell what God would do to provide a Saviour to the world, the next three foretell how that Saviour will gather and restore Israel in his 2nd Advent.
