GOD’S HOLY DAYS, NOT PAGAN HOLIDAYS

  • 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 Holy Days, or 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 Holy Day Festivals are commanded as part of his IMMUTABLE LAW!
  • 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 HOLY DAYS prophetically picture God’s plan of salvation for mankind, with AWESOME implications.
  • That God has instructed His children to present offerings to Him on these Ancient Holy Days; the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks, the Feast of Trumpets, the Feast 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 must be kept by God’s children annually, it is not a feast day, but The LORD’S Passover.
  • The 1st annual observance is called the Passover, which represents the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as the Passover Lamb of God, sacrificed to pay the sins of mankind, thereby redeeming them back to God, from the arch enemy, Satan, the Devil. (2Cor.4:4)  (John.1:29, 36; Lev.23:5)
  • The next Holy Day for God’s people is the 1st, & 7th days 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. This is observed on the 15th day, and 22nd of the 1st month in the land of Palestine, or Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. (for 7 days). It was observed by the New Testament church, (I Cor.5:6-8)  and also symbolizes the removal of sin, the carnal puffed up mind of man.(Rom.8:7)
  • A “wave-sheaf” of the first-fruits of the harvest was carried out in Old Testament times prior to Jesus Christ, symbolizing a special acceptance for the sins of the other first-fruits to follow, He being the First of the first-fruits. (I Cor.15:20-23.) The day following the Sabbath at the time of unleavened bread is the day of “wave-sheaf” from which to count 50, with the WAVE-SHEAF, & counting 50 having supreme meaning in God’s plan, and great significance for the correct counting 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, as you see, symbolizes the giving of The Holy Spirit and resurrection of God’s “first fruits”, the saints. (Lev.23:15-16,21)
  • The next sacred observance is that of the memorial of the blowing of trumpets, known as Feast of Trumpets, which depicts the return of the Glorified Jesus Christ to the earth, the day of The Lord, when the kingdom of God is to be set up and a nation is to be born at once! This 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 LORDS lot Lev.16:9, and the scapegoat (Azazel) 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)
  •  Incidentally, any believing that the Feasts of The LORD are done away, cannot see that they are saying God’s Law is done away. This would take in the Sabbath, as modern “Christianity” believes, without any basis of proof, and 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, for any with eyes to see, or wanting to see.
