So as we are drilling down and really looking at what the Scriptures says about the upcoming Fall Feasts as described in Leviticus 23, which by the way will be our chapter for consideration on Thursday, September 10, many are very confused because our churches for hundreds of years have ignored these and flat out say these do not matter because of Jesus. Okay, really?? Please point me to where in God's Word that Jesus said we are to stop doing something that Yahweh, the LORD God clearly stated was to be an everlasting observance. Oh, right ... I see, this is "church" tradition. Which means that those who follow this way are following men. Thanks, no thanks. Which always leads me to ask the question, What would Jesus Do?? And PRAISE THE LORD ... whoop, whoop ... we have the gospels to dive deep to see what Jesus actually did!! And the book of John has one of the best chronological outlines of the gospels because it is sort of time stamps by guess what? Jesus attendance as the Feasts of Yahweh. Today we find proof that is right there on the page, Jesus attended the Feast of Booths (another name is Feast of Tabernacles). Not only did He attend friends, He taught the people. And not only did He teach, He flat out proclaimed:
Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”
Imagine you are part of the religious powerhouse group and here is this nobody from nowhere claiming, if you are thirsty come to me and drink. What does he mean: believes in me?? He is using scriptures to say that out of his heart flows rivers of living water?? And the people marveled. But they, like us had bought the teaching of the "learned" and trusted "religious ones" ... that is why they were conflicted. None of them ever thought to ask Jesus where He was born; none of them ever thought to ask Jesus from which tribe of Israel were his forefathers. So just in this one chapter, we know for a fact that Jesus attended the Feasts of Yahweh. And because Jesus was without sin, this means that He kept the whole LAW perfectly which would include attending all Feasts. These led me on a search to find a for a timeline of Jesus life based on scripture and I found this one that is a very powerful and extremely detailed visual:

Another Ah-ha treasure I found while searching for this timeline of Jesus ministry led me to the below eye-opening discourse from the Oxford Bible Church.
