Difficult Scriptures

Prove that the Holy Days are still in effect and should be kept today
  1. The Holy Days are Feasts of God, not the Jews (Lev. 23:2, 4). They were commanded to be observed forever (Lev. 23:31, 41).

  2. But these days were ordained during the year before the sacrifices were given to Israel (Ex. 12 and 13). The Days of Unleavened Bread are part of the identifying sign between God and His people (Ex. 13:9). Jeremiah 7:21-23 also points out that when God began instituting the Holy Days – at the time He brought Israel out of Egypt – He did not institute burnt offerings or sacrifices. Therefore, the Holy Days do not stand or fall with the sacrifices, but are truly commanded forever.

  3. Jesus observed the Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread (Luke 2:41-42) and the Feast of Tabernacle and the Last Great Day (John 7:1-2, 14, 37).

  4. The New Testament Church and the Apostles kept the Holy Days:

Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread – Acts 12:3; 20:6; I Cor. 5:6-8

Pentecost – Acts 2:1; 20:16; I Cor. 16:8

Day of Atonement – Acts 18:21

Feast of Tabernacles – Acts 18:21

Paul told the Colossians not to let anyone condemn them for observing the Holy Days (Col. 2:16-17).

  1. The Feast of Tabernacles will be observed during the Millennium by everyone – both Jew and Gentile (Zech. 14:16). So all who would be in God’s Kingdom had better learn to observe them now!
