Numbers 29: Offerings Of The Latter Season
The LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ - see Genesis 1: In The Beginning Was The Word and The Kingdom Of The LORD God) created His true Christian Holy Days based upon the seasons of the two major harvests of the "promised land." The true Christian Holy days portray and prophesy the two-stage process of salvation that is now in progress (see The Harvest Prophecies).
The ceremonial observances for the spring Holy Days that the ancient Israelites were given to do are covered in the previous chapter (see Numbers 28: Offerings In Their Due Season) - keeping in mind that the Holy Scriptures were originally written without chapters. The autumn Holy Days are covered here, in chapter 29.
The Messiah's autumn Holy Days begin with the Feast of Trumpets - an observance that portrays and prophesies the return of Jesus Christ (see The Christian Feast Of Trumpets: The First Day Of Salvation).
"29:1 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you. 29:2 And ye shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto the LORD; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year without blemish: 29:3 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram, 29:4 And one tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs: 29:5 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering, to make an atonement for you: 29:6 Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat offering, and the daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their drink offerings, according unto their manner, for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD." (Numbers 29:1-6 KJV)
The Feast of Trumpets is followed by the Day of Atonement (see Why Do Christians Observe The Messiah's Day Of Atonement?).
"29:7 And ye shall have on the tenth day of this seventh month an holy convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls: ye shall not do any work therein: 29:8 But ye shall offer a burnt offering unto the LORD for a sweet savour; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year; they shall be unto you without blemish: 29:9 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals to a bullock, and two tenth deals to one ram, 29:10 A several tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs: 29:11 One kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the sin offering of atonement, and the continual burnt offering, and the meat offering of it, and their drink offerings." (Numbers 29:7-11 KJV)
The Day of Atonement is followed by the Feast of Tabernacles (see Why Christians Observe The Messiah's Feast Of Tabernacles) and the Eighth Day (see The Eighth Day: Empty Cemeteries).
"29:12 And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: 29:13 And ye shall offer a burnt offering, a sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD; thirteen young bullocks, two rams, and fourteen lambs of the first year; they shall be without blemish: 29:14 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals unto every bullock of the thirteen bullocks, two tenth deals to each ram of the two rams, 29:15 And a several tenth deal to each lamb of the fourteen lambs: 29:16 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt offering, his meat offering, and his drink offering.

The same "Sol Invictus" Babylonian / Roman festival was used to invent the Church of Rome's "sun day" worship (see Why Observe The True Sabbath?), as invented and dictated by the Roman Emperor Constantine (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).
