At first, some of YHVH’s instructions appear strange to us. We do not see the sense in keeping them. Yet, if we are obedient and keep the commandment, we soon see the benefits. Sometimes you see the benefits after making the commandment a habit. The feast of Sukkot is one of these commandments. By keeping the feast a couple of times, you start to see how this positively shapes your life.

During the annual moâ€™ed of Yom Kippurim (Day of Atonements), the high priest of Israel had a very special role to play. He had to take the blood of the sin offerings before YHVH to atone for his sin, his familyâ€™s sin and the sin of the nation. When Yâ€™shua died and was resurrected, His blood became the atonement for all our sin. So how then is the feast of Atonement/ Coverings changed now that Yâ€™Shua sits on the right hand of YHVH and provides a covering for his bride? We have the book of Hebrews to explain this to us, provided that we have a clear understanding of what the author of Hebrews is trying to tell us. To many of us still have a replacement theology view embedded in our minds when we think about the book of Hebrews. Let us take another look at how all of this comes together and what Ezekielâ€™s temple vision tells us about this.
Abba YHVH, in His greatness, has given us seven festivals to celebrate throughout the year. These are His appointed times. We are, in this study, going to focus on the practical observation of the feasts of Pesach and Unleavened bread. In Ex 12:2-29 we find the instructions for the very first time these feasts were to be observed. These were given to Moses by YHVH before the exodus out of Egypt. Are all these instructions applicable to us? Do we have to slaughter a lamb and apply the blood to the doorposts? What does our Father desire from us in the observation of these feasts?
