What amazes me is how some are quick to point out that understanding Elohim'sshalom b'shem Yah'shua
Holy Word and recognizing and observing His commanded Feast days is soundly condemned
by those that have embraced all the non-scriptual Pagan feasts days like Easter and
Absolutely no understanding that Yah'shua celebrated Pesach, HagMatzoh,
First Fruits and Shavuot a second time with an enhanced meaning.
Leaving the Feast of Trumpets, Yom Kippur and Sukkoth to be left for future celebration by Yah'shua.
No understanding of the Feast Shemini Atzeret and its future meaning.
Joh 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
Joh 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
I agree. The blindness of the Easter- and Christmas-keeper is matched only by the blindness of those who, during this new covenant era, try to live under the law as given to Moses for the people in the land.
1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe. 2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation! 3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh, (Phil. 3)
11 And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased. 12 I could wish that those who trouble you would even cut themselves off! (Gal. 5)
All the feasts pointed to Christ. We agree on that. But that is not the issue. The issue is whether we need to keep on keeping all these decayed, faded, shadowy Mosaic feasts now that the Substance, Jesus Christ, has appeared and revealed Himself as the King of Israel and the Lord of the Nations.
The NT answer is no. The apostles and elders never enjoined such behavior on anyone as a sign of proper religious conduct.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. (Gal. 5:22,23)
Nothing about law-keeping or observing feast days in there at all.
Do you live in the past unde the old covenant with the unbelieving rabbis? Or do you want to live with the new holy nation and royal priesthood as we celebrate and worship our Lord in Spirit and Truth in the simplicity of the gospel?
