Why Should We Keep the Feasts?
The feasts were established in the Old Testament. That was so long ago and things are different now. Why do we need to honor feasts and holy days?
A simple question with a simple answer.
Let's take a look at Psalm 100:
2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Psalms 100:2-5, KJV.
The answer is...we didn't make ourselves.
We owe the Most High God of Israel all of our praise, honor, and thanks.
That is the very purpose of the feast and holy days--days set aside yearly to give praise, worship, and honor to the Most High for His mercy and grace throughout our generations.
The awakening to the truth of who we are goes hand in hand with the truth of the feast days.
Obedience to the Most High includes the feast days.
1And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings.
4 These are the feasts of the Lord, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
21 And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
-Leviticus 23:1-4,21, KJV
The feasts were statutes (a law or decree from the Most High) established to last forever and the tradition was to be passed down from each generation to the next.
Anyone who claims part in the blessings of the Most High God must take part in following his laws, statutes, and commandments.
If you are not already, show the Most High your obedience through keeping his feasts and holy days.
