Seven Feasts Fashion Show

It's happening! I'm finally on the ground running. April 27th (2013) will be my first presentation (for strangers) since I completed all of my gowns for the fashion show.  I have spoken at a few churches already with only 1-5 dresses done, but all 12 are complete now and so is my message. Although saying the message is complete will never be entirely truthful, as whenever I learn new things or find a better way to say something... it'll change.  But I am very excited and wanted to share and get the word out as I hope to take the show around to many many churches. In my mind the best settings would be at a women's annual tea, or even as the focus of a retreat. I also plan to take it to the secular world without the "preaching", but with a handout that explains things for those interested. Who knows, maybe one day I'll be an interim act at a huge event like a Women of Faith conference. Here's a little flyer I put together that showcases the Passover gown.
In my message, I start with Genesis and Leviticus and what the Hebrew word “moed” means. 
I talk about how the spring feasts: Passover, Unleavened bread, First Fruits, and Pentecost, were fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the final year of his life here on earth, and how we are awaiting the fulfillment of the fall feasts in His Second Coming. (The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement, and The Feast of Tabernacles.) I say that I believe just like the spring feasts were all fulfilled in the same year that the fall feasts will also all be fulfilled in the same year. 
 I talk about the Jubilee year and the Sabbath and how both tie in to a young earth theology. 
For each feast I give scripture and Jewish tradition information... not an overwhelming amount but just enough to whet an appetite for further study. 
My idea is not to have people walking away feeling like they know everything now and never have to give it a second thought. The idea is to wake people up to this vast subject that is missing from most people's study of the Bible, and have them walking away saying, "I want to know more." "I want to dive into this." The next time they open their Bibles I want them to clearly see the Feast references and begin to unlock some of the mysteries that in the past may have confused them, or caused them to skip passages entirely.
I want people to not be afraid of eschatology, and instead of cowering in fear when they see things happening around the world in the next years to "look up, and lift your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."
