"Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year. Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:) And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before Yahovah your Elohim." Ex. 5:14-17 (Lev. 23:1-3)

THE FEASTS ARE IMPORTANT FOR MANY REASONS:
The Feasts are PROPHETIC and are "shadow pictures of good things to come" – Michael Rood
The Feasts are Yahweh's LESSON PLAN for Israel to study throughout the year (if we all studied the Feasts throughout the year we would all be on the same page. We wouldn't feel like we needed the man-made parsha.)
The Feasts are THE RHYTHMby which we are to live
The Feasts are Israel's "holidays" (HOLY DAYS)
The Feasts TELL THE STORYof the Plan of Redemption
The Feasts GIVE HOPE
The Feasts REMIND US who Yahweh Elohim is and what They are up to
The Feasts KEEP US FOCUSED on Yahweh
The Feasts are A SIGN OF OUR ALIGNMENT WITH YAHWEHElohim and our being in covenant with him

Melchizedek priests are called to DO the Royal (Melchizedek) Law. This is part of our "good works" Yahshua told us to do so everyone could see and praise Yahweh in heaven (Matt. 5:14-15). A huge part of the Melchizedek Law and repenting is ditching the pagan holy days and turning (teshuvah) to embracing the rhythm of Yahovah's Mo'edim, Feasts and Festivals! We believe this is where the rubber of repentance hits the road, is most seen and will cost you the most.
But we must learn HOW to celebrate the mo'edim. There are many great teachers who preach ABOUT the mo'edim or the Feasts of the Lord, but there are not very many teachers who are teaching HOW to actually do the mo'edim. Learning about and celebrating (or rehearsing) them are two totally different things. One might become convinced through a teaching to observe the mo'edim, but then the question becomes: "how exactly do I do that?" How does one actually transform information into delight and bring the rhythm into our homes or and into our communities? Rebekah is seeking repentant woman to attend her Ladies of Teshuvah Workshop to talk more in depth about this and begin the process of training ladies to walk in the Feasts.
A head full of knowledge does not give anyone the right to bust into the Most Holy place and begin to operate as a priest. We must be trained. First in the outer court, then moving to the Holy Place –– then to the Most Holy place.* There is a process to learning how to be a priest: LEARN.LIVE.TELL.
First, we must LEARN about Yahovah's ways and his rhythm (da'at), then we LIVE in it (repentance and ye'da). Then (and only then) are we ready to TELL others about the rhythm ("fishing for men" / the Great Commission). To get LEARN.LIVE.TELL. out of order causes chaos, leads others astray and makes your work ineffective for the King!
We hope, by our example and through our teachings, to give people permission to explore the Feasts of Yahweh with delight (Isaiah 58:14). Teshuvah Ministries is passionate about hosting Yah's Mo'edim in a manner that invites all the senses into the experience––with the goal of impressing Yah's ways on our children and in their hearts so they always remember him (Deut. 6:7)! Our observance is our repentance. Rebekah is available to speak at your Mo'edim event. Contact her.
