“Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘The Lord appointed times which you shall proclaim as holy convocations—My appointed times are these…”
– LEVITICUS 23:2
Educate & Celebrate
At Plant Hope Israel Ministries we want to celebrate the Biblical feasts together with Christians and Jews. We believe that the Biblical feasts were created by God as His appointed times to celebrate for God and the Messiah. The feasts show God’s prophetic plan of redemption for mankind through the Messiah. These feasts reveal the Messiah and He fulfilled them with His life. The feasts bring us closer to the God of Israel and the Messiah and bring unity and joy between Israel and the church.
There are seven Biblical feasts (Passover, Unleavened bread, First Fruits, Pentecost/Shavuot, the Feast of Trumpets/Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur/Atonement, Tabernacles/Succoth) plus Hanukkah and Purim and Shabbat. Together they give a prophetic picture of God’s timetable and His redemption for the whole world. The feasts reveal who the Messiah is, and tell His story, they are for all humanity. Messiah Yeshua fulfilled the first four feasts perfectly during His first coming in his death and resurrection and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. The last three feasts will be fulfilled when the Messiah returns, and they will also reveal who He is. The feasts bring us closer to understanding the Messiah, His character, His love and especially His HEART, because they are part of His life.
We aim to educate people about the history and meaning of the Biblical feasts and celebrate them together with Jews and Christians by coming together at the Lord’s table in joy. The celebration of the feasts plants hope by bringing unity and joy back into the church. When believers synchronize with Gods time and order we come closer to God and His power overflows. Celebrating together at God’s table in unity, brings healing, love and joy and opens the doors of heaven. Just like the priests in the Temple called the people of Israel to serve God and come together to celebrate His feasts, so also we call out and say: “Come together at God’s table!”
