Celebrations Of Salvation
Christ's fulfilling of His Holy Days has been used as a rebellious excuse by unrepentant people to not observe them - the same Satanic logic as those who claim that Christ "did away" with God's Law. But Christ did not "do away" with God's Law (see Did Jesus Break The Law? and Grace Into Licentiousness) or His Holy Days. Plain examples, from The Word of God, how Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles will be observed in the future, after Christ's return, in the Kingdom of God:
"26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. 26:30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives." (Matthew 26:27-30 KJV)
Foreshadows Observed In A Fulfilled Way
Christ's Sacrifice was once, and for all - just as is His offer of Salvation: "6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened [see The Cure For The Carnal Mind], and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of The Holy Ghost, 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6:6 If they shall fall away [see Reprobate], to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame" (Hebrews 6:4-6 KJV).
The only difference between how Christ's Holy Days (see the Fact Finder question below) were observed as living prophecies of salvation (again, see the Fact Finder question below) and how they are now observed as an actual repentant way of life is that they are now a celebration and acceptance of an accomplishment - and observed as such e.g. the difference in how Christ, the Lamb of God, observed Passover on the night before He was crucified, as an example for us. The only thing that will be "done away" regarding Christ's Holy Days will be those who are going to be cast into the lake of fire for refusing to repent and observe them. Their criminal arguments and controversies will be incinerated with them.
"10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 10:2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more Conscience of sins. 10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
