Atonement, At-One With God
There are seven festivals in the Bible that picture steps in God’s salvation plan. Since Jesus Christ is the focal point of that plan, He is also the focal point of each festival. Perhaps that is one reason why the New Testament church observed all seven of these God-given Biblical Festivals.

With the last sacred festival, which was the Feast of Trumpets, we began a series about what the Bible calls the Feasts of the Lord. We asked the question, “Why keep the feasts?” And we saw that the New Testament church, as our model, observed those days. So we can take it that they are part of New Testament Christianity. We believe that we should follow the example of the early church. We saw that we keep them to worship God. We saw that we keep them to know about our destiny with God, because they show what God is doing with us. And we also saw that all those reasons are good ones, but they are not the main reason why we keep the feasts. And actually this festival – more than any other festival of the seven – clarifies the deepest reason why we keep the feasts of God. It’s actually in the name – Atonement – at one with God. All these days – the plan of salvation – everything God does – is all about creating a family. It’s all about becoming at one with God. And these days are about that relationship with God and with others.
