"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Blowing of Trumpets

Today begins the day of trumpets at sundown.  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Leviticus 23:24.

In the New Testament we read that the holy days as well as the sabbath are important because they are a shadow of things to come.
 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Colossians 2:16-17

As a Christian of things to come would most importantly be the Second Coming of Christ, and so I find learning about the holy days is a dress rehearsal of things to come.  

Of the first four Feasts in the Bible:
The Passover
Unleavened Bread
Firstfruits
Pentecost 

Jesus Christ the Messiah fulfilled all of them with his death, burial, resurrection, and the pouring out of the Holy Spirit.  As one studies the fall feasts, one understands that He will come the sound of a trumpet,  there will be a judgment and then the millennium. As I am new to studying the feasts, I cannot say I understand everything about them, but I can say with absolute certainty that I am going to continue in my studies because I want to know more about what is to come.
