Fall Feasts Of The Lord (Email From Paula White Ministries)
We all face times of personal crisis and are often troubled by turmoil in the world. If you have been pursuing God and asking for a supernatural change in your life, I have good news for you! GOD HAS THE ANSWER, AND HE IS CALLING YOU… Now is the time to honor Him for the Day of Atonement- September 23rd!
“Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.” (John 1:29)
As a New Testament believer, you may be asking, “how does this apply to me?” We are not held to the ritual application of law of the Old Testament. BUT, we are not released from the principles of Jesus Christ! We are honoring the Blood Covenant, reconciliation to God, wholeness, by honoring God on the Day of Atonement! Jesus Christ became our “Atonement.”
“He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.”
I want to share with you a revelation established from everlasting to everlasting through our covenant with God that will bring you the power you need to overcome as well as forgiveness, wholeness, restoration, healing, and deliverance. It is one of the most important principles & truths from God in all of the Bible.
During the Fall Feasts of the Lord that celebrate the “Feast of Trumpets,” “The Day of Atonement,” and “The Feast of Tabernacles,” God commanded His people to honor these “holy days” forever, as an everlasting covenant with Him: They are HIS Holy Days!
“In addition to the Sabbath, these are the LORD’s appointed festivals, the official days for holy assembly that are to be celebrated at their proper times each year” (Leviticus 23:4 NLT).
Zion’s trumpet is sounding NOW, and God is calling us to COME NOW to His holiest day, the Day of Atonement, SEPTEMBER 23rd.
“Be careful to celebrate the Day of Atonement on the tenth day of that same month—nine days after the Festival of Trumpets. You must observe it as an official day for holy assembly, a day to deny yourselves and present special gifts to the LORD” (Leviticus 23:27 NLT).
The DAY OF ATONEMENT, or Yom Kippur, is God’s biblical holy day that He established on Israel’s sacred calendar as a covenant of repentance and promise for you and to release the fullness of His blessings and presence into your life!
As the most important and HOLIEST DAY OF THE YEAR to God, the observance of the Day of Atonement includes prayer and fasting, sacrificial offerings, and studying God’s Word. It unveils the Lord’s intense desire for fellowship with us. It is your opportunity to honor your connection to His mercy seat and all that is provided by the atoning blood of Jesus. Look at the word at-one-ment. This is your chance to “COME NOW” and move to be “at-one” with God; to honor the supreme sacrifice He paid for your redemption… and I want to help you get there. This is all about spiritual elevation- many do not reject salvation they neglect it.
In Exodus 30, God commanded Moses on how to atone for the sins of the people of Israel. The high priest would meet Him at the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant (Exodus 30:6) once a year:
“And Aaron shall make atonement upon its horns once a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonement; once a year he shall make atonement upon it throughout your generations. It is most holy to the Lord” (Exodus 30:10).
God looks at us through His mercy seat. It is there that God sees and meets our needs. He gave specific instructions that the high priest was to approach the mercy seat, entering into God’s presence on the Day of Atonement, and offer a blood sacrifice for the sins of the people. In return, God promises a covenant of reconciliation and redemption.
There are EIGHT PROMISES OF BLESSING that are released on God’s people for the next year.

NO SHAME BUT DELIVERANCE (Joel 2:28)

Every individual was commanded as they sought reconciliation and redemption to bring their VERY BEST SACRIFICIAL OFFERING to covenant with God.
