Those aware of these festivals generally believe they were meant only for ancient Israel and ceased after Jesus Christ's crucifixion. They assume these days simply pointed toward Christ, and they think that, since He lived on earth 2,000 years ago, their importance has long since passed. Most people consider these biblical festivals as nothing more than relics of history with no relevance to the modern world.

The old covenant feast days were unique to Israel as a nation living in the physical land when there was a temple and a priesthood to offer the sacrifices according to the law given through Moses.

The priesthood, temple, and biblical nation of Israel no longer exist. There were done away with at the coming of Christ who gave us a new holy nation and royal priesthood called the Church. We no longer keep feast days given by Moses (who represented the law) that have decayed and faded away (Heb. 8:13). Those who attempt to keep these ersatz feast days do so according to traditions of men, not the commandments of God, for God never gave His people instructions on how to keep “Rosh Hashanah” or “Yom Kippur” apart from the temple sacrifices or earthly priesthood.

"For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ" (John 1:17).

We follow Christ in the grace of the gospel. If you are still following after Moses by keeping old covenant feast days as pleasing to God then the apostle Paul has much to say to you in Galatians.

Christ’s followers live under the terms of the new covenant in the new Jerusalem where the old priesthood and old ordinances no longer have any place. They were mere shadows of things to come (Col. 2:17) and Christ’s followers no longer come to Him in shadows.

Very interesting --- thanks for the post. Clearly the Feasts of Trumpets, Yom Kippur, and Tabernacles have yet to see their NT fulfillment.

Interestingly enough Yom Kippur is the only one of the three left that really requires the presence of the High Priest and the Temple ---both of which are on the horizon.
