Holy Days

  • That the Holy Days, are the Feasts of The LORD, all having stupendous meaning and significance in God’s master plan through different epoch’s in God’s plan of spiritual creation.
  • The feasts of The LORD are made holy by the fact that The LORD commanded them to be kept, and kept according to His Word – forever!
  • The Holy days as commanded in scripture are not and have never been”rituals” of the Law as many erroneously think today, and teach in false “Christianity”, but were kept before rituals of Moses Law was given.
  • Ancient Rome’s Pagan days, called holidays, Christmas, New Years, Easter, Lent, “St” Patricks,  and many others are used for commercial gain and are all easily proven to be heathen in origin whereas God’s Feasts are commanded.
  • That God has created seven annual Holy Days and has instructed His children to assemble on these days as well as on His weekly Sabbath.
  • That these days prophetically picture God’s plan of salvation for mankind, and those who reject these commanded days, called the feasts of the LORD, are rejecting God, and cannot know the entire plan as shown through the annual keeping of these days.
  • That God has instructed His children to present offerings to Him on these festivals; the Feast of Unleavened Bread, (1st and 7th) the Feast of Weeks, the Feast of Trumpets, the day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles, followed by the 8th and Last Great day.
  • The Feasts of The LORD begin every year with the days of unleavened bread, preceded by the Passover, though the Passover is not commanded as a feast day, but The LORD’S Passover.
  • The Passover represents the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as the Passover Lamb of God, sacrificed to pay the sins of mankind.  (John.1:29, 36; Lev.23:5).
  • God commands His Feast Days be kept according to his precise instructions; In the 14th day of the 1st-month at even (sunset) is the LORD’S passover. On the 15th is the feast of Unleavened Bread, which follows the Passover the next day at sunset, the first day being an Holy Day and the seventh also an Holy Day. (for 7 days). It was observed by the New Testament church, (I Cor.5:6-8)  and also symbolizes the removal of the carnal puffed up mind of man.(Rom.8:7).
  • A “wave-sheaf” of the firstfruits of the harvest used to be carried out in Old Testament times, symbolizing a special acceptance for the sins of the firstfruits to follow, He being the First of the firstfruits. The day following the Sabbath is the day of “wave-sheaf” from which to count 50, to arrive at the next annual Sabbath (rest) and Feast of The Lord called, Feast of first fruits, the Old Testament name, or Pentecost, meaning fifty, the New Testament name. This feast symbolizes the giving of The Holy Spirit and resurrection of God’s “first fruits”, the saints. (Acts.2:1-4,16-18; Lev.23:15-16,21).
  • Following this feast is that of the memorial of the blowing of trumpets, we call, Feast of Trumpets, which depicts the return of the Glorified Jesus Christ to the earth, the day of The Lord, when all mankind will be punished for 6,000 years of rebellion and disobedience to God and his Laws. At this time, after the horrendous wrath of God is sent upon unrepentant mankind, the earth will undergo a total change and restoration for 1000 years will see a Utopian peace descend upon planet earth. During this millenial reign of Jessu Christ and the saints, the earth will be made ready for theNew Jerusalem to be set up at Jerusalem, with the Father’s Throne being brought down from heaven, and the changing of the physical earth to a spirit realm. This day of Trumpets symbolizing the return of the glorified Christ is to be kept on the first day of the seventh month, or new moon. (Lev.23:24-25; Matt.24:30-31; Isa.27:13; 66:8-9 ; Rev.11:15)
  • After this, the Day of Atonement (Lev.23:28; Rom.5:11;) depicts our aim to be at-one with God as part of His plan of redemption, and symbolizes our atonement to God through Jesus Christ, called the Lamb of God.  It was shown in Old Testament times to represent the future Christ as the goat of the LORD’S lot (Lev 16:9), and the scapegoat representing Satan that would have all the sins of Israel and all mankind put upon him and then cast out into the wilderness. Lev.16:6-11, 15-16, 20-22, 26, 29-34. This is shown in Revelation 20:1-3; to be for a thousand years, during the millennial reign of Jesus Christ and the saints in verses 4-6. Following this, he, Satan will be released for a short time, and then cast into the lake of fire forever.  (Rev.5:9).
  • The next commanded observance, is that of the Feast of Tabernacles for 7-days picturing the 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ and the saints on earth at which time the entire global environment will be restored to it’s former beauty and state of near physical perfection by Jesus Christ and all the saints under Him, and the banishment of Satan the devil. (Revelation.20:1-3, 4-6,10-13; 5:9-10; Daniel.7:9-10,13-14,18,27)
  • The final feast of The LORD is the 8th, and Last Great Day of the feast of Tabernacles, symbolizing the 2nd resurrection, and great white Throne Judgement of all mankind at the end of this 1000 years, and the restitution of all things. (Ezekiel.37:12-14; 36:35-36; John.5:28-29; Acts 3:20-22)
  • That if the Feasts of The LORD are done away, so are all the set days, including the Sabbath, as modern “Christianity” believes, contrary to the word of God.
  • The scriptures clearly demonstrate that the Feasts of the LORD were kept by the children of Israel, even by Gentiles among Israel, by Jesus and His disciples, by Paul and the Gentile churches, and were established forever.
  • That God has commanded His Feast days to be kept in conjunction with the new moons (beginning of each month) in their seasons, and that the religion of Judaisms practice of postponements are contrary to easily provable Bible truth.
