The Feast of the Lord of the seventh month is all about the King
The Incarnation is the most important and least understood event in history. While Israel ignores it, the Church celebrates it on the wrong day! Like all the other events in Israel’s redemptive history, the Incarnation is also on one of the feasts of the Lord. Yet as we review the prophetic aspect of the feasts, the long awaited promised coming of the Messiah is woefully lacking. But how can this be? From the beginning of recorded history, God promised He would provide salvation, the restoration of the devastation caused by the sin of Adam and Eve. That promise echoes through the pages of Scripture as God gives details like a clues to a wonderful treasure hunt. When at last, the King is presented to the world, in a most unlikely way, all heaven breaks lose with shouts of joy, never before seen or heard, creating abject terror to its witnesses.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:13-14)
Would this not be the most appropriate feast for all earth to resound with similar shouts of joy praises to God? In other words, I suggest that the day of the “Memorial Shout” or “Memorial Blowing” commemorates the Incarnation of God, Yeshua the Messiah. I further suggest that on this day we not only look back at the first coming of the King, but also to look forward to His return and coronation. I believe that a major theme and focus of this holiday of the seventh month on God’s calendar is THE King – Jesus the Christ
- His first coming
- His second coming
- His ultimate coronation as King of all kings.
