100514 Feasts Of God During The Millennium

It was in my post on the Feast of Sukkoth, which is also known as the Feast Of Tabernacles and the Feast Of Booths, that I stated that The Feast Of Tabernacles would take place during the Millennium. The scripture reference for the Feast Of Tabernacles is Zechariah 14:16-19. However, I failed to identify the other two feasts that will take place during that time period. Those feasts are The Feast Of The New Year (Ezekiel 45:18-20), and the Feast Of Passover (Ezekiel 45:21-25). The scripture references for those three feasts follow this paragraph.

Zechariah 14:16-19 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Nations Worship the King

16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

Ezekiel 45:18-25 New King James Version (NKJV)

18 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “In the first month, on the first day of the month, you shall take a young bull without blemish and cleanse the sanctuary. 19 The priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering and put it on the doorposts of the temple, on the four corners of the ledge of the altar, and on the gateposts of the gate of the inner court.20 And so you shall do on the seventh day of the month for everyone who has sinned unintentionally or in ignorance. Thus you shall make atonement for the temple. 21 “In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, you shall observe the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten. 22 And on that day the prince shall prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bull for a sin offering.23 On the seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to the Lord, seven bulls and seven rams without blemish, daily for seven days, and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering. 24 And he shall prepare a grain offering of one ephah for each bull and one ephah for each ram, together with a hin of oil for each ephah. 25 “In the seventh month, on the fifteenth day of the month, at the feast, he shall do likewise for seven days, according to the sin offering, the burnt offering, the grain offering, and the oil.”

The following comments are taken from the notes of The Reformation Study Bible, as edited by Dr. R.C. Sproul, and is posted on BibleGateway.Com.

45:18–25 These regulations cover aspects of the ceremonial observances in the first month (New Year’s Day, vv. 18–20, and Passover, vv. 21–24) and seventh month (Tabernacles, v. 25). This legislation may have represented modifications of earlier liturgical practice. Once again, like Moses, Ezekiel provides religious and ceremonial law to Israel (see notes 43:10, 12).

Now, let us go into a time of worship, praise, and prayer as we consider the song that follows, “In Your Presence.”

In Your Presence
Paul Wilbur

Consider the Presence and Glory of God that will be present in the Millennium Temple.

Ezekiel 43 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Temple, the Lord’s Dwelling Place

43 Afterward he brought me to the gate, the gate that faces toward the east. 2 And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone with His glory. 3 It was like the appearance of the vision which I saw—like the vision which I saw when I came to destroy the city. The visions were like the vision which I saw by the River Chebar; and I fell on my face. 4 And the glory of the Lord came into the temple by way of the gate which faces toward the east. 5 The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

6 Then I heard Him speaking to me from the temple, while a man stood beside me. 7 And He said to me, “Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever. No more shall the house of Israel defile My holy name, they nor their kings, by their harlotry or with the carcasses of their kings on their high places. 8 When they set their threshold by My threshold, and their doorpost by My doorpost, with a wall between them and Me, they defiled My holy name by the abominations which they committed; therefore I have consumed them in My anger. 9 Now let them put their harlotry and the carcasses of their kings far away from Me, and I will dwell in their midst forever.
