Within Man's work week, God prescribed to his people 7 special times that they were to observe, which are benchmarks in his plan of redemption. In Lev 23:1 it says, "The LORD said to Moses, 'Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are MY appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of the LORD, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies.'" Many people today do not realize that these were given by God himself and are not man made or Jewish holidays. I like to call these sacred times, God's Holidays. They are Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, Pentecost, Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles.
