What We Do
The Fast of Esther, while not a“mo’ed” or Biblical “appointed time,” is taken from the book of Esther and is not only a clear illustration of the ongoing attempts of Satan to annihilate the Jewish people, but also of what our response to such attacks should be as believers in Yeshua.
The“appointed time” of Shavuot is better known as Pentecost, or the day the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Apostles as they waited in Jerusalem, as instructed by Yeshua. In Simon Peter’s explanation of the event, he quotes one of Joel’s prophecies where the Lord says that He will pour out His Spirit “on all flesh.” The full scope of this prophecy has yet to be fulfilled, therefore we continue to gather on this day in earnest expectation of its final and complete fulfillment in these last days.
The “appointed time” of Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, contains many allusions to the ultimate salvation of the people of Israel in connection to the Second Coming of Yeshua. Historically, this was the day the high priest entered the holy of holies to make blood atonement for the sins of Israel. Today it is a nationally recognized day of fasting, observed by secular and religious Jews alike.
