Seven is the biblical number for perfection and completion and God instituted only seven major holidays. In Leviticus 23 all seven holidays are listed in chronological order. These seven holidays tell the story of our Messiah, Jesus Christ. They represent the sequence, timing and significance of the major events of the Lord’s redemptive plan for humankind. Jesus fulfills the spiritual realities of each of these seven feasts.
Four of the feasts occur in the spring and three occur in the Fall. The four in the spring were fulfilled by the Messiah during his first coming over 2000 years ago. The three fall holidays represent specific events associated with Christ’s second coming in the future.
