Sept. 17, 2022 (21st day of 6th biblical month)
Hebrews 4:1-9 Sabbath still remains, after Old Covenant removed. So do the other biblical holy days (holi-days).
:7 specific day
:8 If Jesus had given us a different day, He would had said so!
Always share this verse with the Sunday people!
:9 Sabbath remains! Opposite of taken away or changed.
Context of chapter is not a removal of law! But rather, trusting God to provide for our needs even when we obey God in his law of the Sabbath.
Acts 2:1 The church was gathered for Pentecost 50 days after Christ's resurrection.
Acts 20:16 Paul hurried to be at Jerusalem for the day of Pentecost.
This wasn't the first Pentecost of chapters 1-2. So it shows that Paul and the church continued Pentecost every year after Christ's death and resurrection. (24-27 years after Christ's death & resurrection!)
1 Cor. 5:7-8 Decades after the crucifixion and resurrection, Paul said "Let us keep the fiesta/feast".
1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgress also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
If there is no law, there is no sin. But yet sin remains. Therefore law remains. Just not the Old Covenant temporary ordinances of unclean meats, circumcision, sacrifices for sin, etc.
Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. (Opposite of removal of all law.)
Col. 2:16-17 Let no one judge us for keeping God's fiesta days, and for how we celebrate them with alcohol, etc.
:17 Belonging to Christ is not saying "done away"!
Verse says the complete opposite of what the lawless churches claim!
Zech. 14:16-19 Holy days still exist even after Jesus returns!
All nations/tribes and races must keep God's holidays. They are his holidays, not the Jews' holidays.
Not "Jewish holidays". Please get that phrase out of your system! The holidays were never commanded to be for Jews only. It was always for everyone of any tribe that wanted to commit themselves to Jesus.
Isa. 66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. (This is talking about during the Millennium)
Commanded Pilgrimages and Temporary Leniency:
In the spring, will be Passover and Unleavened Bread. The people in the USA that are not yet strong enough in Jesus to commit themselves to Christ enough to make the trip to Tennessee for Tabernacles, should plan on being committed enough to Christ to make the trip for Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread.
I'm lenient during people's first holy day season. But as the months progress, it's extremely important for people to commit themselves to Jesus much more. When they requested baptism, they agreed to keep God's holy days. To "keep" his holy days doesn't mean "in any way that a person wants to", but rather it means in the way that the bible commands, which includes traveling to a different city, to the place where Jesus has placed his authority, for Tabernacles, Passover and Pentecost. And He provided the funding via 2nd tithes, and we do everything possible here to help people.
People outside of the USA don't need to travel to Tennessee, but still need to do everything that they can to observe the holy days in their full observance as much as possible.
Reminder: Fiesta of Trumpets (7th New Moon) Sept. 26 Monday.
