Watching and Waiting: Encountering Jesus in the Fall Feasts (Finding the Afikoman) (Volume 2)
At her first Passover Seder with John’s Jewish family in 1976, Christie had a divine encounter that took her completely by surprise. She found Jesus hidden in an ancient ceremony within the Passover called “Yahatz”, or “breaking” a matzo cracker called, the “afikoman”. She asked Him, “What are You doing in this Jewish thing?” He answered, “All the feasts are about Me. Christianity is Jewish.” After that night, with an insatiable hunger to know Jesus, she began her long journey of looking for the revelation of Jesus and God’s heart in all the Biblical feasts. While her first book, Finding the Afikoman: encountering Jesus in the spring feasts, focused on the first coming of Jesus; this second book will take you on a journey with Christie through the fall feasts and Jesus’ return to the earth. As in her first book, Christie will continue to share personal stories and encounters, mostly from her journals that span over four decades. Her discoveries will broaden your understanding of scripture from their Jewish perspective, and reveal to you the family and culture that Romans 11 says that you have been grafted into. What is Christie’s conclusion about the feasts? “They are all about a wedding.” The spring feasts begin with the courtship between Jesus and His Bride and end with a betrothal. The fall feasts begin with the consummation of His wedding and end in a glorious wedding feast! Christie’s prayer is that, in reading this book, you will realize that you are part of the greatest love story ever told!
