Have you ever just sat down and read Ezekiel, chapters 40 through 48? Those were eye-popping chapters for me and changed my thinking on a lot of things. The sole reason for this post is to peak your curiosity so that you can go “back to the future” too! Here are a few excerpts:
This next one nips the circumcision controversy in the bud.
Eze 45:15 - “And one lamb shall be given from a flock of two hundred, from the rich pastures of Israel. These shall be for grain offerings, burnt offerings, and peace offerings, to make atonement for them,” declares Adonai YHVH.
16 - “All the people of the land shall give this offering for the prince in Israel.
17 - “Then it shall be the prince’s part to give burnt offerings, grain offerings, and drink offerings, at the feasts, the New Moons, the Sabbaths, and at all the appointed seasons of the house of Israel. He shall prepare the sin offering, the grain offering, the burnt offering, and the peace offerings to make atonement for the house of Israel.”
In the same chapter as the above verses (ch. 45), YHVH makes it clear that Passover (verse 21) and Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles (verse 25) will still be celebrated! In the next chapter are confirmations that we’ll still be celebrating Sabbaths and New Moons!
Eze 26:1 - ‘Thus says Adonai YHVH: “The gateway of the inner court that faces toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Sabbath it shall be opened, and on the day of the New Moon it shall be opened.
2 - “The prince shall enter by way of the vestibule of the gateway from the outside, and stand by the gatepost. The priests shall prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings. He shall worship at the threshold of the gate. Then he shall go out, but the gate shall not be shut until evening.
3 - “Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the entrance to this gateway before YHVH on the Sabbaths and the New Moons.
4 - “The burnt offering that the prince offers to YHVH on the Sabbath day shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without blemish;
5 - “and the grain offering shall be one ephah for a ram, and the grain offering for the lambs, as much as he wants to give, as well as a hin of oil with every ephah.
6 - “On the day of the New Moon it shall be a young bull without blemish, six lambs, and a ram; they shall be without blemish.
These are just a few examples of what the people of YHVH have to look forward to! Do you consider yourself to be YHVH’s? You should already be practicing His holidays (Holy Days)! It is not quite too late, but nearly. His Sabbath starts this coming Friday evening at sundown and continues until sundown on Saturday and the Father welcomes you into His holy rest. If you are a beginner, an excellent thing for you do do on Sabbath is go to your e-sword or blue letter bible search engine and do a word search on “Sabbath”, writing down all the pertaining verses. You may be surprised at how many there are. Even in the newer testament!
May the Father bless you as you turn your heart to seek Him!
Blessings to you as you bless the Father and Yeshua in the Spirit!
