We have to confess, keeping the Festivals together is largely what brought this ministry together and right now there seems to be much talk and many questions about keeping the Feasts so yes, we will make a short statement regarding Festival keeping and leave the rest to our videos and print resources.
Yeshua had just shaken the Hebrew world, His apostles were supremely encouraged by the sight of their risen Saviour and one Jewish convert, Paul, wrote of present truth: “If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise (Gal 3:29). And again, “Who are Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises.” (Rom 9:4)
As Israel, it seems right that after all our personal yearnings, if only Israel had not rebelled at the time of Christ! that we should follow what Israel was told to do: “This day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to YHWH—a lasting ordinance.” (Exodus 12:14)
However, there were changes in the law, as the Apostle writes, “For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also.” (Heb 7:12); but the same author writes, “Therefore 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.” (1 Cor 5:8)
The disciples continued to keep the Feasts to the close of the Bible record. Therefore, let us keep the Feasts, not with the old leaven but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Will you eat and be filled at the table of the Life Provider? We believe there is no better honour for us. YHWH is Salvation.
