The Resurrection


Death was conquered!

At the end of the weekly Shabbat (right before sunset) before First Fruits

He is "Lord of Shabbat." He raised up at the end of the weekly Shabbat during Unleavened Bread and ascended right before Shabbat 40 days later (Matt.12:8). He conquers death. It is proved that he lived an indestructible life.

Prepare to meet the King

The 14th and 15th day of Month 12

We ask the Ruach ha’Kodesh what dress pleases the King and then wear that (white

dress of righteousness (Yah’s right doings)! We 

consider what kind of splendor Yah wants us to wear so that he can show us off to the nations. We practice coming before our King. This is one of the Hebrew Holidays that is for all Israel.

The commanded Rest we are to take in the middle of work not done. A reminder that we have been set free of the taskmasters. The

sign of betrothal / royalty. Friday evening to Saturday evening. Rest and no usual work.  Time to remember Creation and our Creator and who we are. One of the Biblical Feasts – one of Yah's Holy Days!

The Biblical Feasts

The Feasts are Important for Many Reasons

"Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year. Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:) And  the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of  the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before Yahovah your Elohim." 

Ex.5:14-17 (Lev. 23:1-3)

  • The Biblical Feasts are PROPHETIC and are "shadow pictures of good things to come" – Michael Rood

  • The Biblical Feasts are NOT JEWISH HOLIDAYS, but are the Hebrew Holidays of YHVH'S for His people, ALL of Israel!

  • The Biblical Feasts are Yahovah's LESSON PLAN for Israel to study throughout the year (if we all studied the Feasts throughout the year we would all be on the same page. We wouldn't feel like we needed the man-made parsha.)
  • The Biblical Feasts are THE RHYTHM by which we are to live
  • The Biblical Feasts are Israel's "holidays" (HOLY DAYS)
  • The Biblical Feasts TELL THE STORY of the Plan of Redemption
  • The Biblical Feasts GIVE HOPE
  • The Biblical Feasts REMIND US who Yahovah Elohim is and what They are up to
  • The Biblical Feasts KEEP US FOCUSED on Yahovah
  • The Biblical Feasts are A SIGN OF OUR ALIGNMENT WITH Yahovah our Elohim and our being in covenant with him

Melchizedek priests are called to DO the Royal (Melchizedek) Law. This is part of our "good works" Yahshua told us to do so everyone could see and praise Yahovah in heaven (Matt.5:14-15). A huge part of the Melchizedek Law and repenting is ditching the pagan holy days and turning (teshuvah) to  embracing the rhythm of Yahovah's Mo'edim, the Biblical Feasts and Festivals! We believe this is where the rubber of repentance hits the road, is most seen and will cost you the most.

But we must learn HOW to celebrate the mo'edim. There are many great teachers who preach ABOUT the mo'edim or the Feasts of the Lord, but there are not very many teachers who are teaching HOW to actually do the mo'edim. Learning about and celebrating (or rehearsing) them are two totally different things. One might become convinced through a teaching to observe the mo'edim, but then the question becomes: "how exactly do I do that?" How does one actually transform information into delight and bring the rhythm into our homes or and into our communities? 

A head full of knowledge does not give anyone the right to bust into the Most Holy place and begin to operate as a priest. We must be trained. First in the outer court, then moving to the Holy Place –– then to the  Most Holy place.* There is a process to learning how to be a priest: LEARN.LIVE.TELL.

First, we must LEARN about Yahovah's ways and his rhythm (da'at), then we LIVE in it (repentance and ye'da). Then (and only then) are we ready to TELL others about the rhythm ("fishing for men" / the Great Commission). To  get LEARN.LIVE.TELL. out of order causes chaos, leads others astray and  makes your work ineffective for the King!

We hope, by our example and through our teachings, to give people permission to explore the Feasts of Yahweh with delight (Isaiah 58:14). Teshuvah Ministries is passionate about hosting Yah's Mo'edim in a manner that invites all the senses into the experience––with the goal of impressing Yah's ways on our children and in their hearts so they always remember him (Deut. 6:7)! Our observance is our repentance.

*Thanks to Dianne Davison for her vision of  how the tabernacle shows us the pattern by which we are trained and  pointing this out to me.
