Clearly there is a great emphasis on the purpose and focus of a feasts. The same God who commanded feasts also condemned gluttony. Of course, the feasts were not just about eating. In fact, the word is really much more general than that. Feasts were meetings; appointments; assemblies. They were festive events associated with historically noteworthy happenings ... quite literally, they were spiritual festivals.
Each one of the seven annual feasts parallels with Messianic occasions. The first coming of Christ appears to fit perfectly with the first four feasts, while the last three fit more with His second advent... an event that we still await. I know, the atmosphere in this dispensation is supposed to be one of liberty, simplicity and heart... not ritual and restriction, but, sometimes love is at its best when it is intentional, organized and scheduled.
