JD: The Jewish holy days are underway, the Fall Jewish Feasts, Feast of Rosh Hashanah the New Year, 5781 and of course on that same day the Feast of Trumpets. Ten days later you have the Feast of Yom Kippur and finally five days after that the Feast of Tabernacles but Israel has been locked down. The Israeli government decided to lockdown for the next three weeks the entire state. Is that going to cause a problem for the Jews and their worship of these Jewish holy days?
WM: First of all not a question of worship. We are a community an ethnic religious community and family and getting together. All sorts of events its a very important identifying matter for us so that of course will be heard.
JD: I read a comment from a rabbi who said the lockdown he thought was a positive move because it would cause the Jewish people to actually have to be still and think. That’s a pretty interesting thought in fact he even compared it to the high priest who had to go into quarantine before he entered the Holy of Hollies on Yom Kippur. What are your thoughts?
WM: Well yes that’s a good image and of course we’re always hopeful that the secular side of our society will become more appreciative of spiritual and religious values and ritual and not seen them as something to be rejected or as not modern but realize that people who act with observance, with commitment, with thinking about community and thinking about we’re not alone on this Earth that we have a divine presence with us will make everyone better. Even if I’m talking about ethical values at work or in commerce or other things like that. We always have hope that our example if its done with rational thinking and explanation more and more people and not only Jews will come to appreciate what God should be in their lives and to act with a commitment to man and to God and that will make human kind so much better.
JD: Winkie Medad explaining how a nationwide lockdown in Israel may be God’s plan to cause Jews to consider the prophetic significance of the three Fall Jewish Feasts.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The Israeli government installed a nationwide lockdown at the beginning of the three Fall Jewish Feasts days. That could allow Jews to consider that Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of these three Fall Feasts as He was the fulfillment of the four Spring Feasts. In fact, that’s why God gave the Feasts to the Jewish people.
