The Lord's True Holy Days
by Wayne Blank
"Not every one who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven"
After the return of Jesus Christ, everyone on earth will be observing God's true Holy Days - or face His wrath for refusing to repent. That is made plain in the verse quote above in referring to the Feast of Tabernacles ("the feast of booths" - see below). As with God's only true and valid Sabbath Day (see Sunday Is Not The Sabbath), The Lord regards man-made, pagan-based "Christian" holidays (holidays rather than Holy Days) as worthless and evil in His sight. Don't be one of the "Christian" people condemned by Christ:
"Not every one who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. On that day many will say to Me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and do many mighty works in Your Name?' And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you evildoers.'" (Matthew 7:21-23 RSV)
The Christian-professing world largely ignores the Biblical Holy Days, God's Holy Days (although many thousands of Christians do observe them today, just as the early Christian church did without fail), and instead observe traditional man-made holidays that are called Christian. At the same time, most Jews do observe the Biblical Holy Days, while believing that the observances are an end in themselves. This is a tremendous irony - most Christians ignore them, even though God's Holy Days are about Christianity (see studies for each of the Holy Days below), while unconverted Jews observe them while rejecting the Christianity that the Holy Days portray. Both are missing the point of God's Holy Days!
God does nothing in vain. All of the Old Testament observances have Christian applications - that was their entire purpose, to preview what was to come in due time, and then, after their fulfillment, to serve as permanent annual commemorations to honor and remember the great event.
The spring Holy Days symbolize the events related to the First Coming of Jesus Christ. See:
The autumn Holy Days symbolize the events related to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. See:
