The Time of Harvest is upon us, the gardens are finishing up, the field crops are being processed, the fruits are finishing up, the nuts are fallen, the cider is stored, the preserves are in the closet, the wine is bubbling.
This is what our Biblical and Western ancestors celebrated every year as the feast of Ingathering and Thanksgiving, this is what the Law commemorates in the keeping of the Seventh Month, especially in the feast of Tabernacles!
Please notice the Agricultural requirements that nature provides and the bible commands to be celebrated:
Exo 23:16 …. the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.
Exo 34:21 Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest (SABBATH): in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest (SABBATH).
Exo 34:22 And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end.
Num 29:12 And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall keep a feast unto YHWH seven days:
Deu 16:13 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:
Deu 16:14 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates.
Deu 16:15 Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto YHWH thy God in the place which YHWH shall choose: because YHWH thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.
The Seventh Month as the Month of Ingathering is a sacred time from the beginning unto its near end.
This Year the calendar day called Tuesday falls on the seventh day Sabbaths happening beside the Feasts of the LORD, starting with the New Moon which occurs on October 25th.
