Why Christians MUST Celebrate Bible Holy Days?

Fast Fact before we go on with our topic: HOLIDAY is a clever Pagan concoction. it does not translate as HOLY DAY. Holiday came from Druids Occult celebration or High Mass. Druids are Tree worshiper and the Tree they specifically worship is called Holly (or Holi), where incidentally the place Hollywood was named and for unknown reasons there was no Holly Tree on that area.  Got it???

THE BIBLICAL HOLY DAYS


   Here we will tackle the 7 Feast of God for Israel (or is it for Israel alone?). As I've told from previous blog that we must act very fast on this issue. Some people thought, especially Christians that the observations of these festivals ended when Jesus said "It is finished". 
   Most Christians believes that since we are under the New Covenant now; we will no longer need to celebrate the festival that Moses taught. The priesthood may have been change from Moses to Jesus but we are not taught that observation of the law should change. There are everlasting commandment that we must continue to follow. 
   Jesus said that He came to fulfill the Laws and the Prophets. Not to obliterate the law but to make it perfect. 

Matthew 5:17-19 Think NOT that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

   What does it mean "He fulfill"? Does it mean he finish everything and all the requirements of Salvation rest only on "faith" in Jesus? So therefore we don't need to observe the feast of the LORD?
    Aha! No! James warns...

“What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?” -James 2:14

   The rendering of fulfill is better understood as to make perfect! That is why Jesus explains further after saying he shall fulfill (or make the Law perfect) on Matthew chapter 5 the "You have heard"s...
   21 You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder,[a] and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause[b] shall be in danger of the judgment. 
27 You have heard that it was said to those of old,[c] ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[d] 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
   And so on... telling his listener that what the Pharisees and Scribes had taught them was not the original intent of the Law, BUT an outside practice of observance and human traditions. Jesus call for faith that comes from the heart. A faith with action!!!

   Jesus is clearly not telling here that we should change any of the Law, including the festivals or Holy Days but how it must properly be observed (to fulfill)...
   Jesus dares not change the law or feast because...

Holy Days are made for Remembering and for Signs
Leviticus 23:4 These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
    I highlight in red the word "seasons" to bring into focus the real purpose of these Holy Days. 
  The words "feasts" and "seasons" are translated from the same single Hebrew word "mo'edim." Which was first rendered during Creation...
Genesis 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons [mo'edim], and for days, and years:
     Our God refer to mo'edim during creation is of great significance. Seasons mentioned on Leviticus 23:4 therefore means "an appointed time"; "fixed time" or "constant time" that will continue as long as there are days and nights. 

Which you shall proclaim in their seasons!!!

   So these feast are not just made so Israel can have a day to "celebrate" or "party" around. It is not commanded so we can mark the calendar "Red" but as a sign for season or "appointed time". 

   It stresses the point for Christians that these Biblical Holy Days should be remembered because these will be our signs for seasons

   God does not waste time nor utter vain and meaningless words. When He said the 7th day should be made Holy, he mean it to be Holy with a purpose in mind. 
  "But He answered and said, 'It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.'" (Matthew 4:4)
    I'll give you a good example that by EVERY word of God we shall have life. Did you know that the day before every Sabbath is called the Day of Preparation? During this time the whole of Israel made arrangements, this is the planning day and most especially "Cleaning Time". By that simple ordinance of God to "wash up" self and clean surroundings, Jewish families was generally saved from the Bubonic Plaque or Black Death that ravage Europe; which was latter believed to be caused by bacterium that during the 1300s was an unknown science. (More reading How the Jews was saved that time read this LINK
    As I was saying EVERY WORD OF GOD had its reasons. More so why He made these Holy Days. Since Jesus said, He had no plan or intentions to change these Laws then we better observe them or else we fall victim to another Black Death. 
     

SIGNIFICANCE OF HOLY DAYS
THE PROPHESY YET TO BE FULFILLED

   The festival that God instituted for Israel is still very significant on our time. Now, if you agree that Biblical Holy Days should be 

  Deuteronomy 5:12 "Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the LORD your God has commanded you.

   Let us examine this feast or Sabbaths and how they are being fulfilled...**


1. Passover Fulfilled! (By Jesus/Yeshua at His crucifixion on Nisan 14 in the spring of 32 A.D.)

2. Feast of Unleavened Bread Fulfilled! (By Jesus/Yeshua in His burial in the tomb on Nisan 15 in the spring of 32 A.D.)

3. Feast of Firstfruits Fulfilled! (By Jesus/Yeshua at His Resurrection on Nisan 17 in the spring of 32 A.D.)

4. Feast of Pentecost Fulfilled! (By the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost 
on Sivan 7 in the summer of 32 A.D.)

**** God allows a 2000 year gap here so that even Gentiles like us may know God or to evangelized the world. 

Isaiah 49:6  Indeed He says,
‘It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant
To raise up the tribes of Jacob,
And to restore the preserved ones of Israel;
I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles,
That You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.’”
   Now we are on this part of the time frame. There are 3 more festivals that we should anticipate.  
    The 5th feast will jump-start the Final years of Planet Earth. 

5. The Feast of Trumpets Unfulfilled ....(as of yet). 
   Something BIG is going to happen here.  (Read Behold The Feast of Trumpets on Sept. 24 ) The world will come face to face with the self-proclaim "prince of peace" and declare himself as the savior of mankind. Don't be sway on this too easily, Bible base Christians knew he is the 666. 
   Given the situations of our current generation, could this year 2012 Feast of Trumpets be the one?  "The rumor of wars" and the rest of the Prophesy mentioned by Jesus on Matthew 24 seems all together perfectly fitting on our world trending now.

   Is the day of tribulations about to begin? or also known as... 

6. The Day of Atonement Unfulfilled ....(as of yet). Here the faithful will be tested and the bad guys will flourish or the inevitable World War III finally happening. You shall know this when Israel is finally surrounded by armies as one of the clues. Next clue is when Idol worship shall be observe on God's temple or the Abomination that caused desolation spoken by Prophet Daniel. 


   The seventh and final feast, or "appointed time" is the . . .

7. The Feast of Tabernacles Unfulfilled ....(as of yet).
   The fulfillment of this feast will see the establishment of the long awaited glorious 1000 year long Millennium of Messiah.

The Feast of trumpets or the sounding of alarms

'Know therefore and discern that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the anointed one (Messiah in Hebrew), the prince, shall be seven weeks and sixty two weeks: it shall be built again, with street and moat, even in troublous times.  And after the sixty two weeks shall the anointed one (Messiah in Hebrew) be cut off and shall have nothing: and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary...' Dan 9.25,26.

   In that fearful future time world leaders will not know what to do. They will see themselves and the world on the brink of further escalation and the specter of total nuclear destruction throughout the world will be weighing heavily upon them. Will they be seeking the face of God? Probably not. Coming together in such a time of fear and uncertainty they will bring to the table the sum of all their fears.
   And just who will be the movers and shakers pushing for the confirmation of this deal? The G-7 leaders of Western Christendom are in the drivers seat today. There is no reason to expect that this will change this side of Armageddon when the armies of the east under dragon will march west with a huge 200 million man army. These are the powers of the King of the North, that is, north of the Med. They are the same Western Dominionists who led the West to take Jerusalem during the Crusades 900 years ago). They will be covering this New World Order and its global purchase business with much human sentiment, Utopian oratory, and much verbiage by of dignitaries of ecumenical and worldwide religion.

   It is not going to be easy...The Sixth Trumpet War that is now unfolding is prophesied to kill one-third of mankind. It could happen at any time.  It will come to its climax in the LAST HALF of the last seven years before Armageddon (in the middle of Daniel's 70th Week). 

Specific prophecies will soon be fulfilled:

    1. Jerusalem will be divided.
    2. International forces will control Jerusalem
    3. The Third Temple will be built
    4. The Abomination of Desolations will be committed by Antichrist
    5. The Mark of the Beast will be instituted world-wide
    6. The Two Witnesses will come on the scene in Israel


THE BLOODLINE OF JESUS?
   Gnosticism is working double time ALSO to fulfill their own version of Messiah...Part of the agenda was to introduce the bloodline of Jesus. There had been so many stunts by these group just to make it appear that Jesus was married and begat children. Remember Dan Brown's book?

   The following article is taken from Smithsonian Channel



THE GOSPEL OF JESUS'S WIFE

Damaged and fragile, an ancient papyrus has unleashed a new interpretation of a religious story we thought we knew. In one of the most significant discoveries of all time, a team of scholars has confirmed that a 4th-century codex, written in the ancient Coptic language, refers to "the wife of Jesus." Dr. Karen King, the Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard, reveals that the papyrus clearly bears the line "Then Jesus said to them, my wife..." It doesn't prove that Jesus was married, but it raises important questions about that possibility.




   The purpose of the seven trumpets is to wake up everyone in the world   All around us are signs that the second coming of Jesus is near. But before He comes again the “gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world”. Matthew 24:14.
   The problem is, the percentage of people on earth who have heard about Jesus and the gospel of His kingdom, is declining. If the current trend continues Jesus will never come again.
   God has designed a method to get the attention of each person on earth so that he can hear a clear presentation of the gospel. Then each person will choose whether to worship Jesus or Satan. After the last person has made his final decision then probation will close and Jesus will come the second time.

   Do you worship Jesus?  Then stop worshiping Satan by observing HOLIDAYS.
