JESUS CHRIST, GODíS SON, FULFILLED (IN VARIOUS WAYS) ALL SEVEN YEARLY FEAST DAYS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
(A SUMMARY)


SOME ASPECT OF CHRISTíS MIRACULOUS: BIRTH, SINLESS LIFE, DEATH, RESURRECTION, ASCENSION, AND HEAVENLY PRIEST-HOOD, FULFILLED ALL 7 OF THE OLD TESTAMENTíS ANNUAL SABBATHS.

FOLLOWING IS A BRIEF SUMMARY OF HOW THIS TOOK PLACE:

1. PASSOVER (LEV. 23:5). POINTED TO CHRIST AS OUR PASSOVER LAMB, SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. HE SHED HIS BLOOD AT THE SAME HOUR THAT THE PASSOVER LAMBS WERE BEING SLAIN FOR THE PASSOVER MEAL THAT EVENING. (1 COR. 5:7.)

2. UNLEAVENED BREAD (LEV. 23:6). POINTED TO CHRISTíS SINLESS LIFE; HE WAS THE PERFECT SACRIFICE FOR MANíS SINS. IN THE BIBLE, LEAVEN IS A SYMBOL OF SIN.

3. FIRST FRUITS (LEV. 23:10). POINTED TO CHRISTíS RESURRECTION AS THE FIRST FRUITS OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE RIGHTEOUS. 1 COR. 15:20.)

4. WEEKS (PENTECOST) (LEV. 23: 15-22.) OCCURRED 50 DAYS AFTER THE BEGINNING OF THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD. IT POINTED TO THE GREAT HARVEST OF SOULS AND THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR ALL BELIEVERS, JEWS AND GENTILES (ACTS 2.) ON THIS DAY, SOME 3,000 SOULS RESPONDED TO PETERíS POWERFUL SERMON ON CHRIST THE MESSIAH.

5. TRUMPETS (LEV. 23:24; EX. 19: 13,16,19.) A TRUMPET BLAST SYMBOLIZES A MOMENTOUS ANNOUNCEMENT THAT WILL BE MADE. A DIVINELY APPOINTED ANGEL, ACCOMPANIED BY AN ANGELIC CHOIR, PRAISED GOD AND HIS SON BY SINGING OF PEACE UPON EARTH AND SALVATION THROUGH THE NEW BORN SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST. (LUKE 2: 7-20.)

6. DAY OF ATONEMENT (LEV. 23:27.) UPON HIS ASCENSION TO HEAVEN, SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, JESUS BEGAN HIS MEDIATING, OFFERING HIS BLOOD BEFORE THE FATHER IN ORDER TO COVER (ATONE FOR) THE SINS OF REPENTANT MAN. (ACTS 2:33; MARK 16:19; ROM. 8:34; HEB. 1:3.)

7. TABERNACLES (BOOTHS) (LEV. 23:34.) FOR 33 YEARS, ON THIS EARTH, CHRIST ďTABERNACLEDĒ WITH MANKIND, FORGIVING SINS, TEACHING, PREACHING, COUNSELING, AND HEALING.


CONCLUSION: THEREFORE, WE SEE THAT IN VARIOUS WAYS, CHRISTíS BIRTH, LIFE, DEATH, RESURRECTION, ASCENSION, AND MINISTRATION IN HEAVEN, FULFILLED ALL 7 ANNUAL FEASTS.
