2 Chronicles 31: The Sabbaths, New Moons and Feasts Of The LORD
"Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?"
King Hezekiah's restoration of the Kingdom of Judah (see Why The Other Sacrifices? and When The Church Will Become The Kingdom) was completed with a great trash collection - the removal of all of the idols and other dead-end self-worship attitudes and behavior that were destroying the kingdom. The recovery from the liberal Satanic lawlessness continued "until they had utterly destroyed them all."
"31:1 Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim also and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities." (2 Chronicles 31:1 KJV)
The six work days and the seventh-day Sabbath of rest from the six work days (see The Christian Work Days, The Christian Sabbath) were created by the LORD God - Who was later born as Jesus Christ (see By Him Were All Things Created). The six work days and the Sabbath have always been purely Christian (see Why Observe The True Sabbath? and Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?).
The LORD created His calendar during the Creation week: "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, and for days, and years." (Genesis 1:14 KJV). The Biblical calendar has always been Christian because it was created by Jesus Christ (see The New Moon Calendar).
Most people recognize that Passover and Pentecost, as originated in the "Old" Testament by the LORD God, are Christian because they were created by Jesus Christ, for the Messianic purpose of Jesus Christ. All of the other Biblical Holy Days are also purely Christian for the same reason (see the Fact Finder question below for a detailed study for each of them).
Hezekiah lived in the time prior to the invention of man-made Judaism that began after the people of Judah returned from their Babylonian exile (see Israel In History and Prophecy: Judaism; also Israel Never Knew Purim, Hanukkah Or Judaism. His restoration of the kingdom and the Temple were done according to what the LORD God, who was later born as Jesus Christ, gave to the nation of Israel when He created "Israel" from the nations of the "world" (see A Biography Of Abraham: The Genealogy Of Abram and The Origin Of Israelites And Jews).
"31:2 And Hezekiah appointed the courses of the priests and the Levites after their courses, every man according to his service, the priests and Levites for burnt offerings and for peace offerings, to minister, and to give thanks, and to praise in the gates of the tents of the LORD.

Louis' defeat, which laid Hungary open to Ottoman/Turkish (the Ottomans were a ruling dynasty in Turkey) domination, was partly caused by the probably deliberate failure of John Zapolya to join Louis with his Transylvanian contingent.
