If you haven’t already acknowledged God and offered him praise and worship on his holy Feast of Trumpets, which began at sunset last night, now would be a good time to do that. This feast lasts until sunset tomorrow.
The following scriptures are the ones given as excuses for Christians not to acknowledge the biblical feasts:
*Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ. Colossians 2:16-17
*One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. Romans 14:5-6
At no point do any of these verses say that we shouldn’t celebrate these feasts. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 5:8, “Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.“ Is there a reason for this deception? Was the Roman emperor, Constantine, trying to cleanse us of all Jewish traditions and replace them with a mix of pagan and Christian traditions? That certainly seems to be true. We need to purge paganism and bring back authentic godly celebrations. And, like Paul says, rid ourselves of the old leaven.
