Feast Days 33 AD – Present

What festivals did the early apostolic church observe?

What you are probably wondering is if the disciples observed the Feasts after Christ's death and resurrection. Let us take a look. What did the Israelites do immediately after Jesus' resurrection/ascension?

Acts 2:1 And when the DAY OF PENTECOST was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.  

No hint of a change here! The disciples are shown to have been keeping the Feast after the death, resurrection, and ascension of their Prince Yahshua!

 

Paul said, "Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ" [1 Cor. 11:1]. Did Christ keep the Holydays (Set-Apart days)? Yes, we have already seen it with our eyes and handled it in faith. So would Paul, being one who followed Christ, keep the Holydays? The answer is, of course, a resounding "Yes!" Let us see if we can validate this claim of Paul keeping the Feasts as a Christian.

Acts 20:16 For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the DAY OF PENTECOST.  

Acts 18:21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.

Paul declares here, quite unequivocally, that he MUST BY ALL MEANS KEEP GOD'S FEAST! The word "Keep" is from the Greek word "poiesai" which means "to keep, to celebrate" (Analytical Greek Lexicon, by Harper, 332). Likewise, in the letter to Corinth, he exhorts his Israelite brethren to "Keep the Feast" (I Cor 5:7).

It has been noted by many scholars down through the ages that Paul's first letter to the Corinthians was written at the time period of the year of the Passover/Feast of Unleavens. It is evident by Paul's many allusions to the Festival. He goes on to write:

1Cor 5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us: 8 Therefore LET US KEEP THE FEAST, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Note that Paul, in an address to his kinsmen, refers to keeping God's Feast days.

Paul's point is that they are already unleavened (physically--they removed leaven from their homes in compliance with God's festival), yet they needed to apply the concept to their spiritual house as well and clean spiritual leaven out from it.

You see, the assembly was, as it should, observing God's Feast days.

Paul again alludes to this time period (Passover/Feast of Unleavens) in chapter 15 when he wrote of the resurrection of Christ. In verses 20 and 23, he refers to Jesus as "the firstfruits" of them that sleep (those that are dead). This is allusion to the first day of the week during the Feast of Unleavens in which day that the first of the firstfruits were offered up to God (Lev 23:10-14). This day and its offering typifies Christ's resurrection and ascension, as Paul noted, and The Feast of Firstfruits (Pentecost--mentioned as soon approaching in I Cor 16:8) typifies the resurrection of the rest of the firstfruits (the obedient assembly).

It is in this context that Paul writes in chapter eleven of partaking of the Christian Passover of the bread and the wine. It is to be taken on the evening of the Passover--not whenever man chooses to do so as has been the practice of many of church organizations.

1Cor 11:23 For I have received of the Prince that which also I delivered unto you, That the Prince Jesus the same night in which He was betrayed took bread: 24 And when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me. 25 After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Messiah's death till He come.

When are we to observe His death? Is it at our leisure--are we to decide, or has God ordained the day? Notice carefully in the above Scriptures: "...the same night in which He was betrayed..."  What night was this? It was the beginning of the Passover (Abib 14 on Yahweh's calendar). It is this date that we are to observe the memorial of Yahshua's death, year by year.

What festivals were observed in the post-apostolic period?

We have seen that Jesus, the disciples, and Paul all kept the "appointed times" of Yahweh God. This is surely enough evidence to convict one of their continuance but let us go even further. The early Christians (and the later true remnant continuing through time--albeit, "underground") surely kept God's ordained Festivals (Lev 23), including the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Early historical record is in agreeance with the biblical record and we will present a portion of the evidence herein:

[In the chapter previous to the quote below, Eusebius noted how Victor and the Church at Rome had chosen to observe the "pascha" (later renamed "Easter" in honor of the pagan goddess "Ishtar/Astarte") always on the first day of the week, as opposed to the Assemblies of Asia who followed the teachings of the Apostles and forthwith observed Pascha (Passover) on the 14th day of Nisan/Abib annually.]

"The Disagreement in Asia: But the bishops of Asia, led by Polycrates, decided to hold to the old custom handed down to them. He himself, in a letter which he addressed to Victor and the church of Rome, set forth in the following words the tradition which had come down to him: "We observe the exact day; neither adding, nor taking away. For in Asia also great lights have fallen asleep [he speaks here of the death of many brethren], which shall rise again on the day of Yahshua's coming, when He shall come with glory from heaven, and shall seek out all the saints. Among these are Philip, one of the twelve apostles, who fell asleep in Hierapolis; and his two aged virgin daughters, and another daughter, who lived in the Holy Spirit and now rests at Ephesus; and, moreover, John, who was both a witness and a teacher, who reclined upon the bosom of the Messiah, and, being a priest, wore the sacerdotal plate. He fell asleep at Ephesus. And Polycarp in Smyrna, who was a bishop and martyr; and Thraseas, bishop and martyr from Eumenia, who fell asleep in Smyrna. Why need I mention the bishop and martyr Sagaris who fell asleep in Laodicea, or the blessed Papirius, or Melito, the Eunuch who lived altogether in the Holy Spirit, and who lies in Sardis, awaiting the episcopate from heaven, when he shall rise from the dead? All these observed the fourteenth day of the passover according to the Gospel, deviating in no respect, but following the rule of faith. And I also, Polycrates, the least of you all, do according to the tradition of my relatives, some of whom I have closely followed. For seven of my relatives were bishops; and I am the eighth. And my relatives always observed the day when the people put away the leaven. I, therefore, brethren, who have lived sixty-five years in the Prince Yahshua, and have met with the brethren throughout the world, and have gone through every Holy Scripture, am not affrighted by terrifying words. For those greater than I have said ' We ought to obey God rather than man.' " He then writes of all the bishops who were present with him and thought as he did. His words are as follows: "I could mention the bishops who were present, whom I summoned at your desire; whose names, should I write them, would constitute a great multitude. And they, beholding my littleness, gave their consent to the letter, knowing that I did not bear my gray hairs in vain, but had always governed my life by the Prince Jesus." (Eusebius of Caesarea, Church History, Book V, ch. 24)

"St. Polycarp, the disciple of St. John the Evangelist and bishop of Smyrna, visited Rome in 159 to confer with Anicetus, the bishop of that see, on the subject; and urged the tradition, which he had received from the apostle, of observing the fourteenth day." (Encyclopaedia Brittanica, 11th edition, vol.8, p.828, article: "Easter")

"It is therefore your duty, brethren, who are redeemed by the precious blood of Christ, to observe the days of the Passover exactly, with all care, after the vernal equinox, lest ye be obliged to keep the memorial of the one passion twice in a year. Keep it once only in a year for Him that died but once." ~ (Ante-Nicean Fathers, Vol 7, Constitutions of the Holy Apostles, xvii)

The Hebrew New Year begins the evening after the Spring Equinox which usually falls on March 20/21.

These records are preserved even though there have been some in the church who would pervert the gospel and delete the historic records. There are more examples and we will endeavor to share with the reader just a few more.

"The first Christians continued to observe the festivals [i.e. Yahweh's Festivals], though in a new spirit, as commemorations of events which those festivals had foreshadowed" ~ (Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th ed., vol. 8, p. 828).

Some groups carried names to designate one in their group and other had names assigned by historians. Here are a few holyday keeping groups with identifying tags.

"The Nazarenes [were] an obscure Christian sect, existing at the time of Epiphanius (fl. A.D. 371) .....They recognized the new covenant as well as the old, and believed in the resurrection, and in the one God and His Son Jesus....They dated their settlement in Pella from the time of the flight of the Christians from Jerusalem, immediately before the siege in A.D. 70....While adhering as far as possible to the Mosaic economy, as regarding Sabbaths, foods and the like, they did not refuse to recognize the apostolicy of Paul." (Encyclopaedia Britannica, vol. 19)

"The Christians [Nazarenes] of Palestine retained the entire Mosaic law [with the exception of the ceremonial] and consequently the festivals...In the Feast of the Passover...the Nazarenes eat [unleavened] bread,..." (Ecclesiastical History, vol 1, chapter 2, section 30, by Gieseler)

"Abhorred and publicly execrated by the Jews for their attachment to Christianity, and despised by the Christians for their prejudice in favor of the Mosaic law [with its weekly and annual sabbaths, kosher diet, etc.] they were peculiarly oppressed and unfortunate. Traces of this sect [the Nazarenes] appear as late as the fourth century." (Hugh Smith, History of the Christian Church, page 72 )

"There is another sect, 'Hypisistarians,' that is, worshippers of the most high, whom they worshipped only in one person. And they observed their weekly and annual sabbaths, used distinction of their meats, clean and unclean..." (Antiquities of the Christian Church, Book 16, chapter 16, section 2)

"On down through history, groups have appeared on the scene who recognized the need to observe God's Holy Days. During the 12th and 13th centuries a sect known as the Passagii were the most concrete example of Christianity to come on the scene. They believed the Mosaic Law should be observed and held to the literal view of the Old Testament. They kept the holy days and the dietary laws, but not the sacrificial system. They accepted the New Testament and made it their aim to harmonize the old and new dispensations. They kept the Sabbath along with other Sabbatarian groups in Hungary and in other lands. They were also located in southern France." (Jewish Influence on Christian Reform Movements, by Louis Israel Newman, 255–284).

 

 

 

From Wikipedia:

According to Saint Jerome, Polycarp also kept the Feast of Tabernacles in the 2nd Century in Asia Minor.

Polycarp (AD 69 – 155) was a 2nd-century Christian bishop of Smyrna. According to the Martyrdom of Polycarp he died a martyr, bound and burned at the stake, then stabbed when the fire failed to touch him. Polycarp is regarded as a saint and Church Father in the Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican, and Lutheran churches. His name 'Polycarp' means 'much fruit' in Greek.

It is recorded by Irenaeus, who heard him speak in his youth, and by Tertullian, that he had been a disciple of John the Apostle. Saint Jerome wrote that Polycarp was a disciple of John and that John had ordained him bishop of Smyrna.

Because the Smyrnaean letter known as the Martyrdom of Polycarp states that Polycarp was taken on the day of the Sabbath and killed on the Great Sabbath, some believe that this is evidence that the Smyrnaeans under Polycarp observed the seventh day Sabbath.

It is claimed that the "Great Sabbath" is alluded to in John 7:37. Here it is referred to as "the last day, that great day of the feast" and is a separate annual holy day immediately following the Feast of Tabernacles.

The “Great Sabbath” is a High Holy Day which closes the 7 day feast. A High Shabbath.

 

 

In the late 3rd or early 4th century, Greco-Roman Bishop Saint Methodius of Olympus taught that the Feast of Tabernacles was commanded to be observed by Christians and that it held valuable lessons for them. He also tied it to the millennial reign of Christ. He wrote, "we are commanded to keep the feast to the Messiah, which signifies that, when this world shall be terminated at the seventh thousand years, when God shall have completed the world, He shall rejoice in us."

The millennial reign (1000 yrs) of Christ has already passed. This happened with the Reformation and explosion of Christianity during 800-1800 AD.

As time went on, its observance was increasingly considered heretical by the developing Catholic church. In the 4th Century, Epiphanius discusses Nazarene Christians who kept the Holy Days in various locations in his time, a practice which he considered heretical. John Chrysostom (of Constantinople) commented that people who professed Christ in his area were also observing the Feast of Tabernacles, which he also considered heretical, as did St. Jerome in the 4th and 5th Centuries, who notes that these Christians also gave the feast a millenarian significance.

Epiphanius of Salamis (310–320 – 403) was bishop of Salamis, Cyprus, at the end of the 4th century.

John Chrysostom (349-407) Archbishop of Constantinople. Known for his preaching and public speaking, his denunciation of abuse of authority both by ecclesiastical and political leaders.

In spite of their biblical origin, the Catholic saint John Chrysostom preached against the Fall Holy Days in 387 A.D.:

The festivals of the pitiful and miserable Judahites are soon to march upon us one after the other and in quick succession: the feast of Trumpets, the feast of Tabernacles, the fasts. There are many in our ranks who say they think as we do...If the Israelite ceremonies are venerable and great, our are lies...Does God hate their festivals and do you share in them? He did not say this or that festival, but all of them together (John Chrysostom. Homily I Against the Judahites I:5;VI:5;VII:2.. Preached at Antioch, Syria in the Fall of 387 AD. Medieval Sourcebook: Saint John Chrysostom (c.347-407) : Eight Homilies Against the Judahites. Fordham University. http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/source/chrysostom-jews6.html 12/10/05).

Now this actually causes a problem for the Catholic Church. First, it shows that until at least the late fourth century, that some who professed Christ still kept all the Holy Days. But secondly, and more importantly, since the Catholic Church claims that it still keeps a version of Passover (though under the name Easter in English) and Pentecost, then their saint, John Chrysostom, should never have condemned all of the festivals that God gave the Israelites. Yet he did.

 

In 1588, the Szekler Sabbatarians of Transylvania united under the unitarian nobleman András Eőssi, observed Christian versions of all of the biblical Holy Days including the Feast of Tabernacles. They also rejected the observance of Christmas, Easter, and New Year's Day. Within a decade, they grew to be represented in many towns and villages, mainly centered in the towns of Szekely-Keresztur (today the Romanian town of Cristuru-Secuiesc) and Koropatak (today Bodoc), and a number of Hungarian villages. They developed a hymn book with songs specifically for Christian observance of the Holy Days  They considered themselves as converted gentiles who had inherited from the Jews the eternally binding law, which God had given. (We can see these Sabbatarians at this time were already victims of identity theft. The Jews are NOT Israelites, they are descendants of Cain and Esau!) By 1637, there were believed to number between 15,000 and 20,000, until they attracted the attention of the Hungarian parliament. In 1600 a decree was passed which allowed their estates and properties to be confiscated, and in 1618, a decree was passed in Cluj with the approval of Prince Bethlen to solve the "Jewish Christian Problem" by giving them one year to rejoin one of the reorganized churches. Soon afterward, their books were confiscated and burnt. By the end of the mid 17th century, they still were represented in at least eleven towns and villages in Transylvania, but by 1865 only about 170-180 members remained in the town of Bozod-Ujfalu (near Gyula Feheruar). The group was later absorbed into Judaism during the 1930s.

Judaism is NOT Christianity. Neither is Judeo-Christianity. Much confusion comes from mistaken identity. The Jews and their religion (Judaism, Talmudism, Communism, 'traditions of men', Judeo-Christianity) is not Christianity. Nor are the Jews Hebrews, Israelites, or Semites. Sadly today, most all “churches” and people worship a counterfeit religion and race.

The true descendants of Jacob Israel are the white Anglo-Saxon peoples of the world.

The Magyar Sabbatarians arose among Transylvanian Unitarians, led by the Matthias Vehe's followers András Eőssi and Simon Péchi who founded the Sabbatarians 1588, after Ferenc Dávid died in prison and the Unitarian church formalised on a non-Sabbatarian line. Initially they believed Jesus to be the messiah, but a human rather than divine messiah. Gradually they passed to read only the Old Testament and to celebrate Torah's feasts, follow dietary laws, and a strict observance of seventh-day Sabbath, but not circumcision. German/Hungarian

 

In 1900, The Feast of Tabernacles was formally celebrated by the Southern Baptists at Falls Creek Encampment. There are pictures of the original Falls Creek Tabernacle with the blowing of the shofar to call to service. It was also celebrated heavily among those in the south, known as Bush Arbors, as late as the 1960s. From this movement came the history of tent revivals, which birthed the world-wide evangelist Billy Graham.

Billy Graham is one of the worst things to happen to Christianity. A true false preacher.

AN UNBROKEN CHAIN OF WITNESSES

An unbroken chain of Christian Sabbath-keepers extends from the apostolic church through the Middle Ages. At the height of papal darkness, their light shone high up in their Alpine retreats, and their voice of warning was also heard in eastern Europe, and in spite of advancing Islam, whole bodies of them existed in Ethiopia, India, Syria, Armenia, etc. When the Reformation lifted the veil of darkness covering the nations, not only did traces of these Sabbath-keeping Christians appear afresh all over the Old World, but simultaneously with the new life emanating from this mighty movement, Sabbatarians were found in Moravia, Bohemia, Tranylvania, Germnay, Holaand, England, Finland, Scandinavia; yea, even as early as the fifteenth century they had quite a history in Russia.

When, in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, untiring persecutors pressed the true believers far into the Alps, many of them found new retreats in Moravia and Bohemia. Amid the multitudes of a corrupt church, the persecuted few still retained a true idea of the church of Christ, as Mosheim thus confirms:--

    “Prior to the age of Luther, there lay concealed in almost every country of Europe, but especially in Bohemia, Moravia, Switzerland, and Germany, very any persons in whose minds was deeply rooted that principle which the Waldensians, the Wyclifites, and the Hussites maintained, some more covertly, and others more openly; namely, that the kingdom which Christ set up on the earth, or the visible church, is an assembly of holy persons, and ought therefore to be entirely free, not only from ungodly person and sinners, but from all institutions of human device against ungodliness.”  

As the Reformation broke forth, this concealed principle sprang up with it everywhere.

 

The Feast of Tabernacles, consistent with biblical instructions (cf. Nehemiah 8:15; Deuteronomy 16:15), was being observed outside of Jerusalem centuries after Christ’s resurrection.

 

Notice the following report related to the Middle Ages:

The Waldenses recognized that they were the true successors of the apostolic church. They kept the SABBATH, also the yearly PASSOVER. And each September or October (in God's seventh month -- see Lev. 23), they held at the headquarters church a great "conference." As many as 700 persons attended from afar. New students were chosen, ministerial assignments were made, AND CROWDS GATHERED DAILY TO LISTEN TO SERMONS. What could this gathering have been but the Feast of Tabernacles! Under the name of Passagini, we have the clearest sort of statement that these people, about 1200, observed the whole Old Testament law, including the Sabbath and FESTIVALS! People called Cathars at Cologne, Germany, kept a fall festival, called "Malilosa", even before Waldo began to preach. Compare this unexplained name with Hebrew "melilah" (a harvested ear of grain -- Strong's Exhaustive Concordance) and the Biblical title "Feast of Ingathering" (Ex. 23:16). How much more we might have known about these Middle Ages' Feasts of Tabernacles had not the Inquisitors so zealously burned the records! The three-part division of tithes paid the Waldensian Church is significant. Even in the 1500's the same division continued. "The money given us by the people is carried to the aforesaid general council, and is delivered in the presence of all, and there it is received by the most ancients (the elders), and part thereof is given to those that are wayfaring men, according to their necessities, and part unto the poor" (George Morel, Waldensian elder, quoted by Lennard, "History of the Waldenses"). 1. Compare this practice with Num. 18:21 and Deut. 14:22-25, 28-29. Isn't it exactly what the Bible commands?... Most authors have ASSUMED the "wayfaring men" were the traveling "barbel." But THEIR expenses would have been paid from the money given the elders, at EVERY time of year, for the direct conduct of the Work -- "first" tithe and offerings. Notice that in Numbers 18:21. What Morel then mentions is a "second" tithe, for those traveling to and from the festivals -- wayfaring men; and following it, the "third" to the poor. See the explanation in Deut. 14. Feast goers who had more "second tithe" than they needed shared their excess with those who had need, even as they do today! (LESSON 51 (1968) AMBASSADOR COLLEGE BIBLE CORRESPONDENCE COURSE "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place ..." Rev. 12:6).

Furthermore, Sabbath-keepers in Transylvania in the 1500s (and probably later kept) the Fall Holy Days such as the Day of Atonement and the Feast of Trumpets (called Day of Remembrance below):

The Sabbatarians viewed themselves as converted Gentiles..They held to the biblical holidays. (Liechty D. Sabbatarianism in the Sixteenth Century. Andrews University Press, Berrien Springs (MI), 1993, pp. 61-62)

Again, identity confusion. We true Israelites have been brainwashed by constant Jew propaganda that we are Gentiles and that the Jews are Israelites. But the law on our hearts guides us to follow our Father. We must awaken our brethren to call upon our true Father Yahweh and obey the true gospel of our Saviour Yahshua Messiah. Not false Judeo doctrine and a Jewish Jesus!

The old Ambassdor College reported that some of the American Sabbath-keepers may have kept the Feast of Tabernacles back then:

The Church in Rhode Island became the MOTHER CHURCH in the United States. It grew slowly for about 30 years. Then in 1708, the enlarged and geographically widespread Newport congregation was officially constituted into two congregations.

The "Westerly" or "Hopkinton" congregation retained the original records — being recognized as the leading or HEADQUARTERS location.

The reason for this transfer is most interesting. Previous to this time, the "Westerly" or "Hopkinton" site had become the regular meeting place for "a YEARLY MEETING" of members from all over! It was at such a meeting — on September 28 (Gregorian calendar) — that the decision was made to establish the new congregation. Details are lacking, but it is highly significant that this date falls during the Feast of Tabernacles of that year!

The earliest of these annual meetings of which we now have record had been held in late May, 1684. Other annual meeting dates consistently fell either during the fall Holy Day season or near Pentecost ("The Seventh Day Baptists in Europe and America", pages 127, 150-152, 174, 602, 614). None of these meetings came at Christmas, Easter, or even in midsummer! This was not mere chance. God's people were, at least in part, attempting to follow the pattern of the Holy Days He had ordained.

In the meantime, a number of other congregations of Sabbath keepers had been formed — mostly of new converts and immigrants from England. And though they recognized their relationship to the mother church in Rhode Island, distance made it necessary for the brethren in New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania to gather in annual meetings in their own areas. These assemblies often sent greetings to each other by letters and delegates. At these times, "the Sabbath, with its general communion, was indeed an HIGH DAY" ("The Seventh Day Baptists in Europe and America", p. 151, emphasis ours).

It was not until much later that the MAJORITY accepted the Protestant idea that God's Holy Days had been done away. (Lesson 53 - I Will Build My Church, Part 5. Ambassador College Correspondence Course, 1969)

And the Fall Holidays are still observed into the 21st century by many Sabbath-keeping Church of God groups, like the Continuing Church of God.

The constant and unrelenting propaganda pushed by the Jews and their controlled media have deceived most all our people into believing their false doctrine and false identity.

The Torah, Old Testament, food laws and commanded feast days are not taught and observed by Judeo-Christianity. The lies of these Jews and the apostate pastors that promote them have turned our people into goats destined to join the Jews, false prophets, and pulpit bastards in the Lake of Fire.

 

Will we keep the Holydays after the Second Advent?

The scriptures do show us that the Holydays will be observed after the Kingdom is restored by Christ.  Malachi 3:6 For I am Yahweh, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.  Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Ezekiel 46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this gate before Yahweh in the sabbaths and in the new moons. [see also Ezek 45:17]

Ezekiel 44:24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to My judgments: and they shall keep My laws and My statutes in all Mine assemblies; and they shall hallow My sabbaths.

Zechariah 14:16-19 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith Yahweh will smite the nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

Psalms 119:152 Concerning Thy testimonies, I have known of old that Thou hast founded them for ever.

Psalms 119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of Thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

Summary

So there we have it. Jesus Christ kept the holydays, the disciples kept the holydays, Paul kept the holydays, the early apostolic church kept the holydays, and even the post-apostolic church kept the holydays. We even see that the Holydays will still be featured in the new heavens and new earth. We also have been blessed to see Christ in the Holydays and how all point to Him. Now one question remains, that we will not speak an answer to, for the reader must ask of himself ....

"Should I be observing the biblical Holydays"? ....

Just keep in mind, most all these sites are ignorant to the true identities of who the Jews are, and who true Israel is. These Holydays are our feast days. The Bible is the book of our race, the race of Adam, which is the white race. These are our traditions, our heritage, our laws and holydays, and Yahweh is our God.
