Learning about YHVH‘s Appointed times was the turning point in my life, in which I saw a pattern that God had laid out. Seeing that Christ died on “Passover“, being buried at the beginning of the “Week of Unleavened Bread“, Resurrecting on “Firstfruits” and the Disciples receiving the Holy Spirit on “Pentecost” (which is another of God’s Feast days from Lev 23) started a curiosity in me, which has fueled my passion of study and research. The Icing on the cake was that there were more feast days which were yet to be realised, but of which we had all heard in some sermon or bible study. The Feast of “Trumpets” signified His 2nd Coming, The “Day of Atonement” signified judgement and “Tabernacles” signified His 1000 year reign. “I was blown away”. Putting all of this together with Scripture to back it up, I hope the below Graphical Study Board will help you see God’s Plan and His Word in new Light. Click on below image for enlarged view.
For the past few years, as I learned about God’s Feast Days/ Appointed Times, it has always been a struggle to keep track of His Holy Days. As the world works on the Gregorian Calendar it is impractical to discard it altogether. But on the other hand, keeping track of God’s Calendar timings is important to me now, more than ever. With all the technology in the world, keeping it noted down in your phone or computer becomes the norm – although there’s nothing like a printed version you can stick on a wall or fridge. After looking around for quite some time, I decided on creating such a calendar myself this year, so that whoever needs it, is able to simply download and print it out; or keep it in their computer for reference. Download for free using link at bottom of page. Click the image below for an enlarged preview.
Now I will be the first to admit that the highlighted days are only approximations, and can change drastically depending on the New Moon Sightings and the Aviv Search. I am well aware that there are differing opinions on how the Biblical Calendar is interpreted – and this is meant to be a helpful guide and something that brings us together rather than cause division. I hope that it will also be helpful to all of you with your Sabbath studies as well.

A few years back, I saw Genesis to Malachi as 1 book and Matthew to Revelation as another. I saw the Old Testament as the Old, and the New Testament as the New. I saw the Sabbath as the Old, and Sunday as the new. Law as the Old, and Grace as the New. Because of God’s abundant Grace on my life, I had the opportunity to engage in a study through a dear sister, that changed my views forever. For the first time, I saw God’s one and only plan unravel before my eyes as one amazing love story, from the 1st word in Genesis to the Book of Revelation.
In this post I am glad to share the study that opened my own eyes. It is a visual guide to the story of the Bible. 2 versions have been created for the adult/mature reader as well as the young student. I invite you to take a look at it, and pray that it will have the same effect on you as it had on my life and walk with God.

If you require an in-depth look at the above guide, I recommend that you read the study – “The Betrothal, Divorce and Re-betrothal of God’s people, through Messiah“. May it be useful in your personal/group studies and may it help you to be a blessing to everyone around you!
