Value God For Who He Has Created You To Be And For Making You His Child Through Jesus Christ

Today we'll look at the Feasts of Weeks and Trumpets, as well as the Day of Atonement. We'll be more interested with what they stood for than with how they were honored. When we achieve some achievement, we are usually overjoyed, which can be communicated in a variety of ways. God instructed Israel on how to celebrate their agricultural achievement and big yields.

The Feast of Weeks commemorated the initial fruits of their agrarian civilization, with the best of their harvests being presented to God as offerings. Some people credit their success to luck, or a random event, while others credit their success to hard work. Every believer should be taught that he is not the result of chance. In the gambling world, chance occurrences are best employed to judge whether or not a bet will be successful.

We are also urged to work hard in order to get the desired results. However, we are aware that not everyone who works hard is successful. Ascribing our achievement to our hard effort only makes us (man) the focal point and exclusive source of success, and we, as a result, take the credit. Those who see success as a result of luck or hard work are excluding God from their accomplishments. They worship their beliefs rather than God. Idol worshippers is the best way to characterize them.

God, as the one Creator, has ordained the order of His creation. Everything good must be attributed to God, not to chance or to ourselves. Psalm 127:1-2 and James 1:17 Believers should be mindful to acknowledge God as the source of their good fortune and achievements, so that they might enjoy Him and give Him credit. Believers who are billoniares, professors in their areas, technocrats, researchers, and everyone else who claims to have made it in life should give God the honor because without him, you can do nothing (John 15:5). What have you given thanks to God for today? Thank Him for your soul's salvation.

The Feast of Trumpets was a time when God's presence was greatly manifested as He came into covenant with Israel. Israel pledged to obey God and accomplish everything he asked of them (Leviticus 23:23-27). As a result, Israel was welcomed into the Day of Atonement. This feast finds its culmination in Jesus' offer of the new covenant in His blood to those who will accept it. The Day of Atonement, seen as the holiest day of the year in the Jewish calendar, was a gathering where an atonement was made for both personal and national Israel.

The sacrifices done on this day were completed in Christ, who made the ultimate sacrifice for the world's sins. Have your sins been forgiven as a result of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross?
