The House of Yahweh explains Yahweh’s Sabbath and Feast Days…
Yahweh did not leave us guessing about the Appointed Time, which He sets, when He will meet with His People in Holy Convocation.
These Ordinances are made available to us, in the Books of the Laws, the first five Books of the Holy Scriptures.
The Feasts of Yahweh are His Appointed Times, His Holy Convocations.
The Hebrew word translated convocation is word #4744, miqra in Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary, and means something called out, a public meeting. Miqra comes from the Hebrew word qara, word #7121 and means to call out, address by name, those that are bidden, call forth, invite, mention, preach, proclaim, publish, and read.
Through a study of these Hebrew words, we can see that a holy convocation is when Yahweh calls out His People and then meets with them.
Yahweh has listed His Feasts in Leviticus 23. Contrary to popular Christian teachings, these are not feasts of Moses, nor are they the feasts of the Jews.
Yahweh has said emphatically in Leviticus 23:2—
…these are My Feasts
These Holy Convocations are listed in Leviticus 23, and are as follows
- Yahweh’s Sabbaths
3 Six days shall work be done, but the Seventh Day is a Sabbath of rest, a Holy Convocation. You shall do none of your own work on it. It is the Sabbath of Yahweh in all your dwellings.
Most assuredly, the Seventh Day Sabbath is Yahweh’s Sabbath Day. To keep this Feast Day on any other day would make it man’s feast, and not a Feast of Yahweh.
- The First Holy Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread; and the Last Holy Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread:
6 And on the Fifteenth day of the same Moon is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to Yahweh; seven days you must eat unleavened bread.
7 On the first day you shall have a Holy Convocation; you shall do none of your own work on it,
8 But you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh for seven days. The seventh day shall be a Holy Convocation; you shall do none of your own work on it.
- The Day of Pentecost
21 And you shall proclaim on that same day that it may be a Holy Convocation to you Shabuot; the Feast of Weeks, the Feast of Firstfruits You shall do none of your own work on it. It shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
- The Feast of Trumpets
24 Speak to the children of Israyl, saying; In the Seventh Moon, on the First of the Moon, you shall have a Sabbath, a Memorial of Blowing of Trumpets; the Feast of Trumpets, a Holy Convocation.
25 You shall do none of your own work on it; but you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh.
- The Day of Atonement
Also the Tenth of this Seventh Moon is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a Holy Convocation for you. You shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh.
- The First Holy Day of the Feast of Tabernacles
34 Speak to the children of Israyl, saying; the Fifteenth day of this Seventh Moon is the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days unto Yahweh.
35 On the first day there shall be a Holy Convocation; you shall do none of your own work upon it.
- The Last Great Day
36 But for seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh. On the eighth day you shall have a Holy Convocation the Last Great Day, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh. It is the Closing Gathering of Yahweh’s Sacred Year, and you shall do none of your own work upon it.
If you will count for yourself, you will find that Yahweh has seven Holy Convocations, seven Sabbaths, besides His weekly Seventh Day Sabbath.
