The Feast of Unleavened Bread
 Leaven represents several things in scripture, some are bad and some are good. In relation to the days of unleavened bread, leaven  symbolises sin as we can see in 1Corinthians 5:5-8. So, by not eating anything with leaven in it pictures a person’s coming out of sin! Egypt is pictured as sin and by putting out all leaven from our homes helps us to see that we are removing sin from our lives.


Pentecost (Feast of Weeks) This feast day took its name from the way it was determined and it did not need to be observed on a particular day in the calendar but it was counted seven weeks or fifty days after the Wave Sheaf day and that’s the reason why it’s called “ feast of weeks” in the Old Testament and is known as “Pentecost” in the New Testament which is in the Greek language Fiftieth!
The instructions for this festival and how to count up to it is in Leviticus 23:15-16.
Just as the day of Pentecost symbolizes the first small harvest of God’s church so the day of Pentecost pointed to the spring or first harvest of those who should obtain salvation through baptism and the receiving of God’s holy spirit (See Acts 2:1-4) You can also see this in Joel 2:28-29 which is a partial  fulfillment of it after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, this fulfillment will be completed in the kingdom of God.

The Feast of Trumpets

This festival was held on the first day of the Seventh month (Tishri), and was celebrated by the blowing of trumpets which is why it is called trumpets!
The feast of Trumpets is observed by the church today as God has commanded us to do. See Leviticus 23:23-25
Trumpets were often used to sound an alarm for war and also as a instrument for the watchmen to arouse the population if danger threatened. See Ezekiel 33:1-16
In the book of Numbers chapter 10 we have a little more understanding concerning these trumpets that were blown. There were two special trumpets made for the people of Israel.
Numbers 10:2,5,9.tells us that they can be used or sounded for a calling of an assembly or for an alarm or warning and thirdly to prepare for war!
Revelation 8 and 9.tell us that trumpets have a lot to do with the fulfilling of what God has planned in the events leading up to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Day of Atonement

The 10th day of the 7th month had an elaborate ritual in Old Testament
times and continued up until the destruction of the Temple. It was a commanded fast day in which nothing was to be eaten or drunk for 24 hours, from the evening of the 9th. to the evening of the 10th. On the day itself, the sacrifice of  two goats was enacted as described in detail in Leviticus 16. Two goats were selected off by drawing
