The words translated in most Bibles as “the feasts of the LORD” is in reality “the feasts of Yehovah.” I use the words “the feasts of the LORD” in this article solely for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and my hook to entice folks who lack knowledge and understanding to learn more.
Do Gentiles Attend The Feasts Of The LORD?
Many people are now coming into rudimentary knowledge concerning the feasts of the LORD (Yehovah) in these latter days. I have attended many of these “gatherings” and my observations have always been the same. These events are mostly created and attended by women. And the men who attends them have never even thought about leaving the kingdom of their birth. These people are practically all Gentiles!
Yet Yehovah never told any Gentile to do anything. The preface to His very first commandment says,
“I am Yehovah, your Elohim, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. (Exo 20:2)
Yehovah is not any man’s Elohim until he repents, leaves the kingdom of his birth, joins himself to Him and His other called-out men and then at Passover becomes His born in the land man. It is only to this man, that Yehovah says,
Thou shall have no other elohim existing before My face.” (Exo 20:2-3)
I think people today have a profound misunderstanding concerning who their elohim actually is. And they confuse the first commandment with the second. In my video below I discuss this subject at length.
Yehovah only speaks to His “born in the land men,” His Ezrach, whom He calls “Israel,” His spiritual seed.
Then thou [Moses] shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “My son, My firstborn, is Israel. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me.” (Exodus 4:22-23)
We did not even leave Egypt until we (Jacob’s seed) became Israel, Yehovah’s firstborn, His spiritually born men, at Passover.
Do Women Attend The Feasts of The LORD?
In my video below, most of our discussion on this subject stemmed from what Moses said in Deuteronomy 31:10-12. It is a poorly translated, and thus, confusing passage. In fact, it is so bad that I can not include it here because if I quote it directly it brings down my SEO “Reading Score.” So here is a link to the passage.
Because of poor understanding, improper punctuation, left out or added words and biased theology we lose knowledge and understanding of what this passage is actually saying.
Only Israel And All Their Males Regularly Attend The Feasts Of The LORD
The feast of Tabernacles (feast of Ingathering), is one of three times when all Israel comes to appear before Yehovah, their Elohim (their only lawmaker and judge). They, are the spiritually born men / seed who Yehovah tells 3 times in the Tanach to appear before Him three-times a year. Please note that women are NOT in attendance at these sacred gatherings.
“Three times you [His Ezrach men] shall keep a feast to Me in the year.
You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread (you shall eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month of Aviv, for in it you came out of Egypt. None shall appear before Me empty).
And the Feast of Harvest, the first-fruits of your labors which you have sown in the field.
And the Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labors from the field.
“Three times in the year all your males [זכורך, za·kur’- there are no female za·kur’] shall appear before the master, Yehovah, Elohim of Israel.” (Exo 23:14-17)
“Three times a year all thy males [זכורך, za·kur’] shall appear before Yehovah, thy Elohim in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before Yehovah empty-handed. (Deu 16:16)
“Three times in the year all thy males [זכורך, za·kur’] shall appear before the master, Yehovah, Elohim of Israel. (Exo 34:23)
All our, Israel’s,males shall appear before Yehovah, our Elohim. Israel is the elohim of everyone who follows them—their men, their women, their children, their male servants, their female servants and their Ger who dwells within their gates. And this is the context for Deuteronomy 31:10-12 which happens only once every 7 years at the year of release. Women do not go to Passover or Shavuot (Feast of weeks / feast of Harvest) and they only attend the feast of Tabernacles (Feast if Ingathering) once every 7 years when we (Israel) are in our land. And currently Yehovah’s born in the land seed, Israel, is not in his land.
Why Do Woman NOT Attend The Feasts of the LORD?
I think the reason that woman are excluded from attending The feasts of the LORD is the very same reason that they do not go to war with their men.
I think you will find Deuteronomy 31 a very interesting chapter. Here is the rest of the story.
