The Biblical Holy Feast Days Were Hidden

This Falling Away of 2 Thessalonians 2 study reveals how the Father’s Holy Feast Days were hidden by the Roman Church.

The Holy Feast Days declare the full Gospel story and how the Messiah is fulfilling them to redeem His bride, and they clearly give His followers the context of His return.

Of course, Satan doesn’t want you to know this, so he used the Roman Church to hide them, and replace them with Easter and Christmas.

And he caused Emperor Constantine to forbid the followers of the Messiah from observing them anymore.

Let’s look at how our Messiah is still fulfilling the Holy Feast Days, so that we can see why His followers should still celebrate them, and how they foretell the proper context of Messiah’s return.

The Father gave the Holy Feast Days to teach His followers about His character and to help us understand His plan of salvation.

The word “Feast” is translated from the Hebrew word “moed”, which means appointment.

Here are the four Spring Feasts that our Messiah has fulfilled:

The Feast of Passover pointed to the Messiah as our Passover lamb whose blood was shed for our sins.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread pointed to the Messiah’s sinless life (as leaven is a picture of sin in the Bible).

The Feast of First Fruits pointed to the Messiah’s resurrection as the first fruits of the righteous. (1 Cor. 15:20-23)

The Feast of Pentecost represented God pouring out His Holy Spirit on the disciples.

Below are the fall Feast Days which are yet to be fulfilled by our Messiah:

The Feast of Trumpets represents His return for His bride, where trumpets are blown and the elect are taken up.

The Feast of Atonement occurs ten days after the Feast of Trumpets, when Christ will judge His Church.

The Feast of Tabernacles occurs fifteen days after the Feast of Trumpets, when we celebrate the wedding feast.

Many Christians proclaim that the Holy Feast Days of the Torah were nailed to the cross, so we don’t have to observe them, but that is impossible, because the Feasts of First Fruits and Pentecost were fulfilled after Jesus death on the cross.  And there are still three to be fulfilled.

Messiah said “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.” Matthew 15:17

The written record of your transgressions, which testify against you and condemn you to death, was nailed to the cross by the Passover Lamb.

Praise our Messiah that He is fulfilling the appointed feasts in exacting detail.

Knowing that He is exact in His fulfillment of prophecy, and knowing that the Feast of Trumpets represents His return for His bride, we know the context of His return.

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed
1 Corinthians 15:51-52

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

Can you now see how the Bible is declaring that our Messiah will return on the Feast of Trumpets?

We don’t know the year, but we know when the Feast of Trumpets occurs every year.

In 2015, it is during the second week of September. Some scholars say it’s on the 12th, some on the 14th.

Should we not setup aside some time during the Feast of Trumpets to worship our Messiah, and thank Him for the promise of that day when He returns for us?

The Early Church continued to observe the Holy Feasts, so Satan caused Emperor Constantine to ban them.

To make the switch from observing God’s Holy Feast Days to pagan-based holidays, Constantine issued this creed for Christians who would partner with Rome.

Keep in mind that during the previous centuries the followers of Christ had endured relentless persecution from Rome, and now they are being exalted to positions of power and treated well, so they are susceptible to compromise.

In 366 A.D. at the Council of Laodicea, the Sabbath was abolished and replaced with Sunday worship. The bishop of Rome authoritatively confers the name of Lord’s day upon Sunday.

Canon 29 – Christians must not Judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day honoring rather the Lord’s day by resting, if possible, as Christians. However if any shall be found judaizing, let them be anathema for Christ (Mansi, II, pp. 569-570, see also Hefele Councils, Vol. 2, b. 6)

Constantine declared:

I renounce all customs, rites, legalisms, unleavened breads and sacrifices of lambs of the Hebrews, and all the other feasts of the Hebrews, sacrifices, prayers, aspirations, purifications, sanctifications, and propitiations, and fasts and new moons, and Sabbaths, and superstitions, and hymns and chants, and observances and synagogues.

Absolutely everything Jewish, every Law, rite and custom and if afterwards I shall wish to deny and return to Jewish superstition, or shall be found eating with Jews, or feasting with them, or secretly conversing and condemning the Christian religion instead of openly confuting them and condemning their vain faith, then let the trembling of Cain and the leprosy of Gehazi cleave to me, as well as the legal punishments to which I acknowledge myself liable.

And may I be an anathema in the world to come, and may my soul be set down with Satan and the devils.” (Stefano Assemani, Acta Sanctorium Martyrum Orientalium at Occidentalium, Vol. 1, Rome 1748, page 105)

Furthermore, any follower of the “Jewish Messiah” who wished to join this “holy community” was compelled to adopt a different set of rules and customs. Subsequently special creeds were drafted, to which the Christian would have to swear such as:

I accept all customs, rites, legalism, and feasts of the Romans, sacrifices. Prayers, purifications with water, sanctifications by Pontificus Maximus (high priests of Rome), propitiations, and feasts, and the New Sabbath “Sol dei” (day of the Sun, ), all new chants and observances, and all the foods and drinks of the Romans. In other words, I absolutely accept everything Roman, every new law, rite and custom, of Rome, and the New Roman Religion.”

During the 4th century many Christians accepted these terms from Constantine and compromised their faith, fulfilling the “falling away” that Paul warned about in 2 Thessalonians 2.

During our Messiah’s ministry, He sought to convey to the Jews that He was the promised Messiah who would fulfill the Holy Feast Days.

At the end of the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, the Temple was gloriously illuminated with many candles.

And He said to them, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12).

The seventh day of the Feast of Tabernacles became known as Hoshana Rabba, “the Great Day.” The ceremony was to thank God for His bounty and to ask Him to provide rain for the crops in the coming year.

And He said to them, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:37-38).

The Holy Feast Days of the Father are a covenant with His redeemed people.

If you don’t observe them, you are out of covenant with Him.

The Israelites practiced them, in looking forward to their fulfillment by the Messiah.

We too should observe them and celebrate them, for in their fulfillment our redemption is secured!

Observing the Holy Feast Days does not mean that we need to fulfill the ceremonial law, and sacrifice a lamb on Passover for example.

And we should not look to Jewish traditions in celebrating the Feast Days, as they added many rules to them.

Here is a simple list of things to do on the Holy Feast Days:

The Feast of Passover pointed to the Messiah as our Passover lamb whose blood was shed for our sins. One can read Isaiah 53 to see how Messiah fulfilled this prophecy about Him atoning for our transgressions.  One can read the Gospel passages which tell of His sacrificial death for us.  And we should follow His command to observe communion in remembrance of His atoning sacrifice for our sins.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread pointed to the Messiah’s sinless life (as leaven is a picture of sin in the Bible).  This is a High Sabbath, so we should not work on this day. We can praise Him for becoming flesh and living a sinless life; for being the second Adam, who was without sin, so that by His sacrifice we are declared righteous and can have a covenant relationship with the Father.

The Feast of First Fruits pointed to the Messiah’s resurrection as the first fruits of the righteous. (1 Cor. 15:20). We can read the Gospel passages about His resurrection, His showing Himself to witnesses, and His ascension; as it points to our future resurrection to be with Him forever.

The Feast of Pentecost represented God pouring out His Holy Spirit on the disciples. We can read in Acts how the Spirit was poured out on the disciples, and how the Gospel was preached, causing 3,000 Jews to believe in the Messiah on that day.  We can give thanks for the Spirit of Truth, our Advocate, who guides us in prayer and in truth.

Below are the fall Feast Days which are yet to be fulfilled by our Messiah:

The Feast of Trumpets represents His return for His bride, where trumpets are blown and the elect are taken up. We should praise Him as we eagerly await His return for us.

The Feast of Atonement occurs ten days after the Feast of Trumpets, when Christ will judge His Church. This is a High Sabbath, so we should not work on this day.  We should earnestly repent of our sins, the sins of our country and the sins of the church.  We should be in sorrow at how the enemy has deceived men and pray for their salvation.

The Feast of Tabernacles occurs fifteen days after the Feast of Trumpets, when we celebrate the wedding feast. We should praise Him that we are His bride, and we long to be married to Him and be with Him forever.

  1. The only outstanding feast is the feast of Tabernacles. That great “camp meeting” is the millennium in heaven. The most important feast, The Day of Atonement was fulfilled as per Daniel’s prophecy. We know when it began, but not when it ends. Not sure how to summarize it in the comments section.

    • Shalom Felix! I’m sorry for the slow response! Praise Yahuah that the Ruach is guiding you to the ancient path of Scriptural truth! Sadly, every church denomination that I know about has Babylonian/Roman roots. It’s a narrow road to be sure, but you’re blessed to be on it! Keep learning and growing in The Way! David

  4. If you don’t observe them, you are out of covenant with Him?
    We too should observe them and celebrate them, for in their fulfillment our redemption is secured?
    Do you know what it means to fall from grace?
    Galatians 5
    2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
    3 For I testify again to every man, which is circumcised, that he is bound to keep the whole Law.
    4 Ye are abolished from Christ: whosoever are justified by the Law, ye are fallen from grace.

    Colossians 2
    14 And putting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, he even took it out of the way, and fastened it upon the cross,
    15 And hath spoiled the Principalities, and Powers, and hath made a show of them openly, and hath triumphed over them in the same cross.
    16 Let no man therefore condemn you in meat and drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days,
    17 Which are but a shadow of things to come: but the body is in Christ.

    In the New Testament, Jesus declared Himself “lord of the Sabbath” (Matthew 12:8). He equated Himself with God the Father, becoming God in human form. In addition, Jesus declared, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27) Jesus became our Sabbath – we are to rest in him.

    Also we are free from having to practice the ceremony of Holy Feast Days, our redemption is in Christ Jesus only, he died to free us from all this. It’s fine to honor and love him, but to say you have to observe them or you are out of covenant with Him is saying he didn’t take them out of the way and fastened them upon the cross.
    Read Isaiah 1:13 Bring no more oblations, in vain: incense is an abomination unto me: I cannot suffer your new moons, nor Sabbath, nor solemn days (it is iniquity) nor solemn assemblies.
    14 My soul hateth your new moons and your appointed feasts: they are a burden unto me: I am weary to bear them.
    15 And when you shall stretch out your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: and though ye make many prayers, I will not hear: for your hands are full of blood.
    16 Wash you, make you clean, take away the evil of your works from before mine eyes: cease to do evil.
    As you can see God was pretty fed up with Israel and their hypocrisy.

    Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself, which covers all the 10 commandments
    This is the only 2 things he wants from us and we are only capable of it if he is living inside us. All these religious rituals are not important to him, he said in 1 Corinthians 13 – if we don’t have love we are nothing.
    By the way I do agree with most of your teaching.
    God Bless

    • CJ, If your Father designates seven days of the year which are special to Him, and you ignore them, are you in covenant with your Father? No, for you don’t love Him enough to observe what is special to Him.

      I’m not saying that people who don’t observe them are not saved, I’m saying that those who love the Father cherish His Holy Feast Days.

      And I’m not saying that observing the Holy Feast Days earns us salvation.

      What I am saying is that Messiah’s fulfillment of the seven Holy Feast Days is the story of our redemption, it is the Gospel message. Should we not celebrate that?

      Keep learning and growing in The Way,
      David

  5. If you notice in my post I said if you are doing these things because you want to honor and love him that is fine, but if you are doing them because you think it’s a required law then you just mixed legalism with grace. For you to pass judgement on me that I do not love him enough because I don’t celebrate what was nailed to the cross, is wrong. I always observe what the Lord has done for me, in fact I don’t wait until it’s a Holy Day to partake in the the Lord’s Supper I do it weekly. Only the Lord knows what is in my heart just like he knows what is in yours. Colossians 2 16 Let no man therefore condemn you in meat and drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days. These things were nailed to the cross, the moral law of the ten commandments were written in our hearts which are all about loving him and our neighbors. Loving your neighbor is to making sure that they are not putting them self back under bondage of the laws of Moses and making sure that their righteousness only comes from Jesus not from their dead works of resurrecting what was nailed to the cross.
    Galatians 2 – 21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
    A lot people read your stuff on your site and could come very confused because they don’t study the scriptures on legalism and grace. We are to worship God in spirit and truth not in our flesh. It’ impossible to please God without faith and if we can’t believe that these things that kept men in bondage weren’t nailed to the cross then we are all in big trouble. Yes it is very important to know what Holy Feast Days mean, that they are a shadow of what Jesus did and will do, but it’s more important to focus on the one that they are about and what he did here during his ministry and on the cross. He focus on love, forgiveness, healing the sick, raising the dead and spreading the gospel. That is what he wants us to do through the power of the Holy Spirit to live as a mirror image of him, to be a shinning light in the darkness and not fall apart like a 2 dollar suitcase when the world is in chaos or things are not going right in our life, so the unbeliever wants what we have. Remember some believers are still on milk and are not ready to eat meat and your site has a lot of meat so be patient with your readers.

    John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

    32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    Keep renewing your mind
    CJ
