THE FEASTS OF OUR FATHER
Christianity is a runaway religion from Judaism. It is obvious the Scriptures of the Christian is the same Scripture of Judaism with grave modifications—a translated copy with untold errors, inaccuracies and lies.. Needless to say, the Name of our Heavenly Father and His Son were changed, displaced and replaced. YaH's Kodesh Sabbath was also changed, displaced and replaced, making the Word of YaH of none effect. Worst of all, the RUACH Ha Kodesh was displaced and replaced by scholars and so-called prophets, pastors and priest who are preachers of unrighteousness and lies.
Last but not least, the KODESH (set apart) Feasts of our Father were also changed, displaced, misplaced and replaced.
The change, displacement and replacement of the Feasts of our Father is a serious deviation of Christianity from Judaism. Instead of honoring our Father by keeping His feasts as He instructed, Christianity today boasted and preferred to celebrate pagan feasts such as Christmas or "Christ's Mass," Easter, Halloween and "All Saints Day and All Soul’s Day," all of which has no basis in the Written Word. All these are nothing but pagan festivals fused into the Christian religion. Of course, there are other pagan festivals in Christianity not worth mentioning.
Long before these changes transpired, YaHSHUA Ha MASHIACH through his beloved Revelator label Christianity, "Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots. How do you identify those who are "Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots." There are three teachings and practices that indicated clearly which church is partaker of "Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of harlots. By their teachings and practice!
1. Those who observe or worship on Sunday, the day of worship of the pagan sun God in place of
YaHVaH'S feast of Shabbath.
2. Those who profaned His Great and Kadosh Name, by calling Him God, Lord or His Son Jesus instead
of his true name YaHVaH and YaHVaHSHUA, or YaHSHUA, respectively. Thus, they are in effect
worshipping the enemy unwittingly.
3. Those who teach that the Feast of our Father has been done away and no longer practice them, and in their stead they teach and practice pagan feasts.
These are the three yardsticks that determine which church fall into "Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots." That means, when your church teaches and, or practices either one of the above two doctrines, or both, it fits right into the label of "Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlot," and you are a majority.
How did this came about? Long before these things happened, Paul writing to the Thessalonians foretold of the Fall of the Early Believers: "Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called ELOHIM, or that is worshipped; so that he as Elohim sitteth in the temple of ELOHIM, shewing himself that he is ELOHIM." Paul's prediction of the fall away church was fulfilled when Constantine became the first Christian emperor. The Early Church which was a symbol of a woman with child clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet in Revelation 12:1 became the woman arrayed in purple and scarlet colour and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls and having a golden cup in her hand ful of abominations and filthiness of her fornication," riding on the beast (Satan) in Revelation 17:1-6.
During the next 1600 years period from the falling away to the present time, Satan has used the church to plunder, pillage, rampage and ravage the world and messed up the word of YaH so badly that lies upon lies were written, told and preached day in and day out. Today, the entire church is dead and deceived; in the captivity of Satan, "Satan which deceiveth the world." Revelation 12:9.
On the other hand, the remnants of YaH ELOHIM are those who keep His Commands to observe and keep the Feasts of our Fathers and have the testimony of YaHSHUA (Revelation 12:17, 14:12 and 19:10) and there are seven of them. Seven denotes perfection. Why would they want to be tainted with paganism and idolatries which is spiritual adultery when they could be set apart by obeying the commandments of YaH? The answer is obvious! They do not have His RUACH of Truth in them.
Christians claimed that because their Jesus died (Who died?) the feasts which is part of the old testament came to an end. "It was abolished at the cross," that disgraceful humiliating and demeaning cross. The Cross has become and been a stumbling-block to Christians and Christianity since the day they taught such dogma. The cross become their idol to their own confusion and shame; and finally perdition.
What was abolished at the Cross? Which part of the laws of Moses--the laws do not belong to Moses anyway--was nailed to the cross? A careful study of the Word led by His RUACH is crucial to understand this. I have always maintained that trying to understand the Kodesh Scripture by intellectual means must result in confusion, that is, Babylon!!! Remember! The Kodesh Scripture is the Written Word of YaH ELOHIM, Who is SPIRIT. Therefore, it is Spiritual. Paul said that "Spiritual things are spiritually discerned. With that said, one got to be born of the SPIRIT to rightly divide the Word of Truth.
So which part of the Laws of Moses was nailed to the Cross or abolished at the Cross? (Surely not the Feasts of our Father!) The Cross is an emblem of suffering, shame and death. It is a means to an end. It was used as a means for the sacrifice of the Son of YaH. He died humiliated; He suffered for us; He was shamed for us; He died for us and all the entire fallen race from Adam to come what may. He was shamed, humiliated and murdered. He died, was buried and rose the third day and is now seated at YaH'S right hand. He conquered death. Thereafter the cross served no purpose. Its function is over. But today Christians all over the world have make the cross their idols. In short, the cross has become idolatries to Christianity. The Catholic Church has a cross with their Jesus still nailed thereon while the rest of the Christian denominations (demon nations) had a plain cross. Which church does not display a cross in their building? Worst, they claimed that the cross free them from the perpetual Feasts of our Father. The big cross became the symbol of Christianity, the small ones they wear as talisman. What a sham and shame!!! They even sing about the old rugged cross which they would cling to. Hey! I rather cling to the One who died on it and rose and now is seated at YaH'S right hand than the cruel cross that was used to cause his sufferings and death! That idolatrous cross!
What was nailed to the cross is very simple. The cross, as pointed out, was a mean for the sacrifice of the Son of YaH. Just like an animal was put on the alter and sacrificed, so the Son of YaH was nailed to the Cross and Sacrificed. Since, the cross has to do with sacrifice and the people of YaH before the cross had been sacrificing their animals why then did the Son of YaH have to die? The answer is again a simple one. Animal sacrifice is nothing and it cannot effectively atone for the sins of those who sacrifice their animals. What it did was point to the coming MASHIYACH Whose sacrifice is retro-active, from Adam to who knows when he shall appear again. Therefore, it is YAHSHUA who saved,not the cross and what was nailed to the cross was what pointed to it--the sacrificial system.
That tells two things. First, it tells of the Sacrifice of the Son of YaH, the one and only Sacrifice that is needed after all--ULTIMATELY--for the remission of sin and the salvation of the entire human race. Then it follows that the sacrificial systems, or the Aaronic Priesthood which was put in charge of the sacrifice of animals and all the statutes and regulations pertaining to it were nailed to the cross, not the Feasts of our Father. The Feast of our Father together with the Ten Commandments are forever from generation to generation--a memorial unto YaHVaH.
As simple as 123 if animal sacrifice administered under the Aaronic Priesthood is just a provisional thing and the Sacrifice of the lamb of YaH is the Ultimate Sacrifice, then the entire Sacrificial System including the Aaronic priesthood is done away when YaHSHUA died on the cross and exclaimed, "it is finished," the veil in the temple where the daily and perennial sacrifice took place was rent in two by an unseen hand is evidence that the sacrificial system came to an end.
In the nutshell, The Ultimate and Supreme Sacrifice is YaHSHUA's death on the cross. All animal Sacrifice from Adam to YaHSHUA points to Him. All the animal sacrifice are multiple, repetitive and imperfect. They are administered by human priest. YaHSHUA died once for all and then became our High Priest while all who called on Him could be their own priest. This is so significant because sin is so horrible to a Righteous YaH that no one could died for a sinner to save him from the power of death, no one in heaven or earth. It must take the Son of YaH to accomplish this because He is One with YaH and He came from YaH. Only YaH saves and YaHSHUA is YaH Saves. (Not God Saves, Satan, the God of this world came to destroy, not save).
So what was nailed to the cross? Not the Feasts of our Father, nor the Ten Commandments! Only the Sacrificial System with all its laws and statutes. Our Fathers wants us to observe the feasts in respect to His commandments. He tells His people in Leviticus Chapter 23. "Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them, As for the appointed seasons of YaHVaH, which ye shall proclaim as KODESH convocations, these are they, My Appointed Seasons:
1. The Weekly Sabbath—the first feast
Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day shall there be a Sabbath of sacred rest,
a KODESH convocation, no work shall ye do, a sabbath shall it be unto YaHVaH, in all your
dwellings, verse 3
2. The Pesach or Passover
In the first month on the fourteenth of the month, between the evenings, is a Passover
unto YaHVaH, verse 5
3. The Feast of Unleaven Bread
And on the Fifteenth day is the festival of unleavened cakes unto YaHVaH, seven days
unleavened cakes shall ye eat, verse 6.
4. Shavuot—Feast of Pentecost
When ye enter into the land which I am giving you, and ye reap the harvest thereof,
then shall ye bring in a sheaf of the firstripe corn of your harvest unto the priest: And
he shall wave the sheaf before YaHVaH that ye may be accepted, on the morrow of
the sabbath shall the priest wave it. verse 10, 11
Then shall ye keep count to ourselves, from the morrow of the shabbat, from the day ye
brought in the wave sheaf, seven shabbat complete shall there be; Until the morrow of
the seventh shabbat, ye count fifty days, then shall ye bring near a meal-offering unto
YaHVaH. verse 15-16.
5. The Feast of Trumpet
And YaHVaH spake unto Moses, saying: Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying: In the
seventh month, on the first of the month, shall there be nto you a sacred rest, a
trumpet-blowing commemoration, a KODESH convocation: No laborious
work shall ye do, but ye shall bring near an alter-flame unto YaHVaH, verse 23-25
6. The Day of Atonement
Surely on the tenth of the seventh month is the Day of Propitiation, a holy convocation
shall it be unto you, therefore shall ye humble your souls, and bring near an alter-flame
unto YaHVaH. And no work shall ye do, on this selfsame day, for a day of propitiation it
is to put a propitiatory-covering over you before YaHVaH your ELOHIM. For whosoever
be the person that shall not be humbled on this selfsame day, then shall he be cut off from
among his kinsfolk. And whosoever be that person that shall do any work on this selfsame
day, then will I destroy that person from the midst of the people. No work shall ye do, an
age-abiding statue to your generations, in all your dwellings. A Sabbath of sacred rest
shall it be unto you, so shall ye humble your souls, on the ninth of the month in the evening,
from evening to evening shall ye keep your sabbath, verses 27-32.
7. The Feast of Sukkoth or Feast of Booth
On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, shall be the festival of booths for seven days
unto YaHVaH. On the first day shall be a holy convocation, no laborious work shall ye do.
Seven days shall ye bring near an alter-flame unto YaHVaH; on the eighth day a KODESH
convocation shall there be unto you. So shall ye bring near an alter-flame unto
YaHVaH, the closing of the feast it is, no laborious work shall ye do, verses 34-36.
"These are the appointed seasons of YaHVaH, which ye shall proclaim as KODESH convocations,
1. Seventh-day Sabbath--points to the rest YaHSHUA brings
2. Pesach or Passover---Points to YAHSHUA as the perfect Lamb of YaH
3. Feast of Unleavened Bread--symbolic of the body of YaHSHUA Ha MASHIACH
4. Shavuot or Pentecost--Points to the outpouring of the RUACH on all believers.
5. Feast of Trumpet—Points to the Coming Of YAHSHUA with His SHOFAR of YaH
6. Day of Atonement—Points to YaHSHUA, the Lamb of YaH
7. Feast of Booth—Sukkoth—Points to our wandering in sin in the wilderness of this world
just as the sons of Israel wanders for 40 years in the wilderness.
All the seven feasts have their appointed seasons and they all have their appointed lesson for YaH’S people of all ages.
The people of YaH are to REHEARSE these every year throughout their generations. Just like before a marriage, the bride would rehearse, so the People of YaH must rehearse before YaHSHUA comes to take his bride.
Had YaH’S people been faithful, there would be only these seven feast to observe year to year. Not any more, no Christmas, no Easter, no All Saint’s Day or All Soul’s Day or what have you. Our Christian friends would tell us how and why we are wrong in keeping these feasts but they would not admit that their feasts are pagan and did not even come from YaH Himself. Even for many Messianic and Christians who kept the Seventh-day Sabbath and not the feast, are they not aware that the Seventh-day Sabbath is the first feast? And, if they are keeping the first feast, why not the rest of the feasts? Why keep one and threw the other six under the bus?
It must be noted all the seven feasts point to things to come or they are a type of the true or shadow of things to come. They are meant for the sons of YaH to rehearse and show their love for our Father--it is Abba's Will that we dilligently seek Him. By doing so, we are preparing ourselves to serve Him in His Kingdom to come. What does pagan feasts do for Christians? Mired them in deception and idolatries!!!
Choose ye this day whom ye shall serve! As for me and my house, we shall serve YaHVaH ELOHIM, our Father.
Blessed is he who cometh in the Name of YaHVaHSHUA
