In the Feasts of the Lord, the "Feasts" in Hebrew is literally translates as an "appointed time."

Ecclesiastes 3:1
1 There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-5
1 Concerning times and seasons, brothers, you have no need for anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night. 3 When people are saying, “Peace and security,” then sudden disaster comes upon them, like labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you, brothers, are not in darkness, for that day to overtake you like a thief. 5 For all of you are children of the light and children of the day. We are not of the night or of darkness.
