The feasts of God on the Hebrew calendar -Holy seasons
God’s Holy seasons:
The Hebrew calendar (הלוח העברי ha’luach ha’ivri), or Jewish calendar, is a lunisolar calendar used today predominantly for Jewish religious observances.
It determines the dates for the biblical feasts (Sabbaths of God) written in Leviticus 23:1-44.
God's holy Sabbaths:
God’s feasts are also known as His Sabbaths, because these feasts contain a Holy presence of God called Shekinah.
“But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My sabbaths;
for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you.
Time on God’s calendar:
The 12 months on the Hebrew calendar represents the 12 sons of Jacob, the 12 Apostles and the 12 fruits on the tree of life as in Rev 22:1-2.
In Israel, it is an official calendar for civil purposes and provides a time frame for agriculture.
God’s feasts or holy Sabbaths were first given to Adam:
The Hebrew calendar was first given to Adam by God.
From Adam, it was then passed down to Abraham the son of Shem, the son of Terah.
During the time when Moses was writing the Torah down, He was also commanded to write down and include the Hebrew calendar among the commandments which were given to Israel as it is written in Leviticus 23:1-44.
