 GODS TRUE 7 ANNUAL HOLY DAYS

The Creator established 7 Annual Holy Days (not holidays, which the word came from) to symbolize , illustrate , point us to , make clear and lead us in His plan for mankind .

Passover is the first of Almighty God’s seven annual holy days and The Days of Unleavened Bread being the second of Almighty God’s True , 7 Annual Holy Days . Passover is the first one of Almighty God’s True , 7 Annual Holy Days symbolizing Christ’s sacrifice allowing sins punishment to “ Passover ” us .

Our Creators plan starts with His Son removing sins barrier between Him and US , making all things possible (Philippians 4:13) .

These were instituted by our Father just before He Used Moses to free the Jews out of the bondage of slavery they were in , as punishment due to their idolatrous ways of falling away from the true , accurate worship of Almighty God, mainly Sabbath observance !

History IS repeating itself again , as WE are BEGINNING to be punished for our inaccurate (and nonexistent) worship of Almighty God .

It is the first of the seven Because everything starts with the sacrifice of Christ and his shed blood to free US from the guilt of our sin , without that we are separated from Almighty God . Moses instructed the people to kill a lamb without blemish (symbolizing Christ being perfect) and put its blood on the doorposts of their homes so the curse of the fog of the creeping death , sent upon all of the firstborn males of pharaoh’s Egypt , would pass over them , leaving them unharmed , hence the name Passover .

This mirrors how Christ’s blood allows the death penalty of sin to pass over us.

Symbolism and duality are Used often in the Bible as tools of illustration and confirmation .

Immediately after this follows the Feast of the Days of Unleavened Bread symbolizing putting away and removing sin from one’s life , as Leavening or Yeast , represents sin . What is the point of accepting Christ’s sacrifice and atonement of His blood without actively seeking to push sin from your life ?

The idea , order and sequence of these seven annual holy days is meant to keep us walking forward correctly , step by step , on Almighty God’s plan of salvation .

We are not , BECAUSE we don’t observe these holidays that tells us to ,

gets us , and keeps us on track , and guides us step by step to follow our Father correctly and be blessed !

Back to the feast of Unleavened Bread , the meaning here is, Leavened or Yeast symbolizes sin just as leavening makes bread puffed up , so does sin ,

puff both US and our vanity up . These first two of the seven annual Holy Days of Almighty God are valid for today as well .

A common misconception , confusion and Delusion exists , concerning this , undoubtedly caused by Satan . It is this , first people say that observance of these is only for the Old Testament and second , it is only for the Jews .

Scripture proves both to be false . In direct connection to two other holy days, the Feast of Pentecost and the Day of Atonement Almighty God says in Leviticus 23:21, “And ye shall proclaim on the self-same day that it may be a holy convocation unto

you , ye shall do no servile work therein and it shall be a statute FOREVER . In all your dwellings throughout your generations”.

Convocation means a COMMANDED religious assembly , FOREVER !

The Day of Atonement , Leviticus 23:41 states, “And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute FOREVER in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month.”

The Feast of Pentecost celebrates the Holy Spirit, the power of Almighty God that enabled Christ, the church, you (hopefully), and me to overcome Satan , sin , the ways of this world and do what I am doing now !

It is the evil spirit of lies and deception of the Devil that gave birth to these falsehoods and allowed them to mislead humanity and it is the ,

“Spirit of Truth” , a part of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God , that it takes to tear down these strongholds !

John 16:13 states , “ when he , the Spirit of Truth , is come , He will guide you into all truth “ . Since Christ is the Word of truth , I will let words in the New Testament by the Apostle Paul , speaking of the sacrifice Christ made for the truth, CONFIRM these Holy Days are to be observed TODAY !

First Corinthians 5:7 and 8 states concerning the Feast of Unleavened Bread , “ Purge out therefore the old Leaven as ye are Unleavened , for even Christ , our Passover , is sacrificed for US : LET US KEEP THE FEAST not with old leaven , neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth . ” Paul , in the New Testament ,is telling the apostles , the new church and ALL followers of Christ to KEEP the Feast of Unleavened Bread, not with old sins of malice and wickedness, but with sincerity and truth ! That should adequately set straight the issue of Almighty God’s holy days not only being valid for the Old Testament .

Now to address the second issue of them being only for the Jews .

The Passover , the Bloods protection from the final , most extreme of the curses Almighty God brought upon Pharaoh , the killing of all Egypt’s firstborn males , symbolized Christ’s future sacrifice to free US from the penalty of sin unto death that Egypt represented. Immediately after Exodus from Egypt, Almighty God spoke to Moses to instruct the people further on the perpetual observances of Passover. Exodus 12:48 states , “ And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee and will keep the Passover to the Lord , let all his males be circumcised and then let him come near and keep it and he shall be as one that is born in the land. For no uncircumcised man shall eat thereof .

ONE LAW SHALL BE TO HIM THAT IS HOME AND TO THE STRANGER THAT SOJOURNETH AMONG YOU.”

In other words, any stranger or non-Jew was encouraged by Almighty God to “draw near” to him BY keeping this feast. BY DOING THIS HE BECAME ONE BORN AS A JEW , or a Spiritual Jew . Almighty God confirms this by saying, “THERE IS ONE LAW FOR BOTH JEW AND FOREIGNER ”. This should leave no misunderstanding .
