Holy Days

According to Genesis YaHuwah created the world in 6 days and on the seventh day he rested cause it was the Sabbath day, now we assume that oh it must be Saturday or Sunday seeing as we either acknowledge Monday or Sunday as the start of the week, this is completely incorrect, no where in the old testament can u read about any thing remotely even being labeled as Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and so on. Funny thing is, we all stamp it this way and see it in the light we were raised in.

Why all the smoke screens and illusions? Well the target I believe was never for that time, the target was the last generations, Satin knew that knowledge was getting lost and soon everyone believed in all the changes purely because WE ARE THE MODERN WORLD, we are the EVOLVED generations and we know better than the ones before,maybe this is true, but not when it comes YaHuwah’s laws and hes true purpose for us, with each step we take to being more advanced and gain more knowledge the more we distance us from the true calling and the real truth behind the Sabbath day and holy days. People get so used to things so quickly, look at internet, 20 years ago no one could really afford to have it on their Computer tower at home, now everyone is walking around with it in their palms in a cellphone, and no one even remember how this change happened so fast… the same with the creation of the man made calender, at first no one bothered, then everyone saw it as a modern, then everyone had it in their houses, and then everyone was synchronized and no one even remembered how life was before it, all they know is that its modern and everything works better for them that way. WAKE UP, this was purely to hide the true Sabbath and at the same time get people to willingly without knowing keep pagan holidays and to usher in the new modern world, the synchronized world.

Remember, maybe no man could know at the time the power of this and what impact it might have had, but satin knew, he planted the seeds in the right places, corrupted the right minds and used one or more of his trusted servants help things along and this is where we find ourselves, in a modern world with a modern calendar and yes a MODERN GOD, one who denounced everything that he set in stone, as long as we have good hearts and we give a hundred rand here and there ……. RIGHT? It’s our own fault we no longer see YaHuwah’s true power on this earth and no longer feel connected to him, its time to WAKE UP and unplug yourself from this world!

So we need to look at things that would be so close to YaHuwah’s heart that we know it would be important then prove it from scripture but also see if it would still carry weight today so that we can disprove a few other things at the same time.

So let’s go back to the Tabernacle, it was an replica of the one in heaven and was YaHuwah’s meeting place with Israel, so clearly this could not have been just flushed down the toilet.

Genesis 1:14- 16

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also.

Mo’edim was a tent where Yahuwah met with his people before the tabernacle was erected. Mo’edim means “the appointed time” which gives u a clear indication that it was special.

If we go back to the beginning when the earth was just empty, there was no indication of time or means to measure it by, once YaHuwah created the Moon and the Sun this became possible as noted he even said that they would be for days and years, seasons and signs, the word signs is important because it tells us there are things that were are suppose to see, things we could not see anywhere else.

The difference is,that with the papal calendar, it has a continuous cycle and always repeats and obviously cancels out the whole feature of why the sun and Moon and stars were put there,now they are only there for waking up ,go to bed ,sleep and planting and business planing.

According to the Bible there are 9 appointed times for worshiping:

New moon day

Seventh day Sabbath

Passover

Feast if unleavened bread

Wave sheaf

Pentecost

Feast of trumpets

Day of Atonement

Feast of tabernacles

LEVITICUS 23:1-43

“And the LORD Spake unto Moses, saying, 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. 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.


These [are] the feasts of the LORD, [even] holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons. In the fourteenth [day] of the first month at even [is] the LORD’S Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month [is] the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days: in the seventh day [is] an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work [therein.] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest unto the priest:  And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD. And the meat offering thereof [shall be] two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the LORD [for] a sweet savour: and the drink offering thereof [shall be] of wine, the fourth [part] of an hin. And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: [it shall be] a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete: Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD. Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; [they are] the firstfruits unto the LORD. And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be [for] a burnt offering unto the LORD, with their meat offering, and their drink offerings, [even] an offering made by fire, of sweet savour unto the LORD. Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings. And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits [for] a wave offering before the LORD, with the two lambs: they shall be holy to the LORD for the priest. And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, [that] it may be a 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.
And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I [am] the LORD your God.

And the LORD Spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, in the seventh month, in the first [day] of the month, shall ye have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work [therein:] but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
And the LORD Spake unto Moses, saying, also on the tenth [day] of this seventh month [there shall be] a day of atonement: it shall be a holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it [is] a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul [it be] that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul [it be] that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work: [it shall be] a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It [shall be] unto you a Sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth [day] of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath. And the LORD Spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh

month [shall be] the feast of tabernacles [for] seven days unto the LORD. On the first day [shall be] an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work [therein] Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it [is] a solemn assembly; [and] ye shall do no servile work [therein.] These [are] the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim [to be] holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day: Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the LORD. Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day [shall be] a Sabbath, and on the eighth day [shall be] a Sabbath. And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days. And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. [It shall be] a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I [am] the LORD your God. And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD. ”

Here we can clearly see that these feasts and Holy days is a HOLY CONVOCATION for all generations, not just theirs, or while they were on their way to the promise land or while they were already in the promise land, it is declared to be as HOLY as the Sabbath day mentioned at creation, this was never nailed to the cross as this would have meant, that the SABBATH was also nailed to the cross seeing as YaHuwah sets them as equal in HIS EYES, lets rather not leave this to science or ASSUMPTIONS as we already have for the last 1500 years. I believe that the reason for this is due to the fact that in the Garden of Eden there was no sin, up until the point that sin arrived , if you think of it like this a year is very long, a single prayer and an hour set aside for soul searching once a week was not ever going to be enough, all these Holy days were designed and put in place for us to have more spiritual growth and also to strengthen our relationship with YaHuwah , But even more so to keep us reminded of our spiritual commitments, with the above mentioned it would not just seem like a hoax , you would actually feel the holiness of these days and stay more in sync than we currently are. The burn offerings was how ever nailed to the cross , so I am not referring to that.

Genesis 1:14- 16

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also.

The HOLY days were determined by the luminaries that YaHuwah made to guide us for these days, the MOON, so yes the moon is apparently not only there for moon light, I could never imagine YaHuwah being so twisted to give us HOLY days but with know way to determine when they will be….doesn’t make sense right.

Isaiah 66:23-24

And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

Passover & Feast of unleavened bread and First Fruits is in the first month (lunation) and is tied to vernal equinox.

On the fourth month is the Pentecost service.

On the seventh month is the Feast of trumpets, Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles.

These Feasts is there to bless everyone , and to help families by teaching husbands and fathers how to be the priest and head of the house, how to teach his kids and bring them up to understand and uphold YaHuwah’s word and laws. Mothers showed their kids how to love, forgive and how to show humility and obedient to the creator. Through this the entire family becomes fine tuned and gets synchronized and through this is in harmony with YaHuwah’s will. Someone who is not in Harmony will easily get angry and irritated as your mind and heart has to be in line with the creator hence the importance of laying the right foundation in your household and it is never to late to start.

Feast of Trumpets

Leviticus 23:23-25

And the LORD Spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first [day] of the month, shall ye have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work [therein:] but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

Falls on a new moon and is also called a Sabbath day and no work should be done, it is a day of soul searching and reflecting and to weigh your life to YaHuwah’s laws and to get back in sync, ten days from the feast of trumpets comes the day of Atonement,so everyday till then work on the 10 commandments one a day and really think and meditate around that one commandment and  “rewire “ your brain and make it  part of you, so that it will be more vivid in your mind making it easier to steer clear of everyday obstacles that cause us to break YaHuwah’s laws.

So 10 days from Feast of Tabernacles for each day till day of Atonement:

DAY 1:  Thou shalt not covet. 

DAY 2:  Thou shalt not bear false witness.

DAY 3:  Thou shalt not steal.

DAY 4:  Thou shalt not commit adultery.

DAY 5:  Thou shalt not kill.

DAY 6:  Honour thy father and thy mother.

DAY 7:  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it Holy.

DAY 8:  Thou shalt not take the name of Yahuwah thy Eloah in vain

DAY 9:  Thou shall not make unto thee any graven image.

DAY 10: Thou shalt have no GOD before me. It is also then on DAY OF ATONEMENT.

Mathew 22:35-40

Then one of them, [which was] a lawyer, asked [him a question,] tempting him, and saying, Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.  And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

The whole idea with this is to get yourself spiritually  ready for the next year, by reflecting any any sin of the past, things you don’t want to face or have forgotten about due to being ashamed or very hurt and blocked it out, doing this step by step will help you remember specific sins that is why you meditate on every single commandment for a day, till the day of Atonement, where your sins will ultimately be blotted out and start again with a stronger and more fulfilled relationship with Yahuwah. don’t take the commandments as I listed them here, go and read the full commandment to fully comprehend its meaning. You as a human need to understand the full meaning of YaHuwah’s commandments, and how each law can have multiple ways of transgressing them, sin is truly SIN, as it can be so innocent and feel normal but it will grow and become more and more a part of you , allot more than you bargained on.

I think one of the main things we need to do, is start learning the true 10 commandments so much that it should never be forgotten, how many of us don’t even know all 10, how many of us even know in what sequence they should go, Yahuwah put them that way for a reason so don’t you come and think otherwise. Think of when you were young, you tried your best to impress the people close to you, the people you love so that they can be proud of you, and so that you can feel proud for what you have achieved, it should be the same with our Creator, what ever you do or choices you make, it should be done keeping YaHuwah in mind as ultimately how we appear in front of him is the most important of all. Truly pray about your sins ask for guidance and also ask that any forgotten sins be refreshed in your mind, if you are willing to do this, it means you are so much closer to truly breaking the chains, if not, you still have allot of reflecting and soul searching to do.

Leviticus 23:26-32

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Also on the tenth [day] of this seventh month [there shall be] a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it [is] a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God. For whatsoever soul [it be] that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul [it be] that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work: [it shall be] a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It [shall be] unto you a Sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth [day] of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath.

On the day of Atonement, there is absolutely no work to be done, it’s a day to be one with YaHuwah, a day to be still, even best if it’s spent at home, do not allow earthly things do ruin or disrupt it, yes in a household with kids and family it might get really hard,but take a deep breath, try and get the whole family to partake in worship and reflecting with you, do some real talking to YaHuwah ,in your mind, or if you want , out loud, start the day with a prayer and a song of joy with the family to celebrate this amazing day. Avoid outside people, this will just disrupt it all, especially people you know will have just negative opinions to give, this day to not belong to them but to YaHuwah. Fasting for the day would also be really good, I suggest trying it a few times for short periods before hand ,but it’s truly a different experience, and makes it so much more special, remember on this day it’s not about what u want but how special u want to make it for your Creator. The day of Atonement is also different when it comes to when it starts and ends, this day is from evening to evening, and should not get cut short for concerts or your special social or sports events, everything must go or else you are just wasting your time.

Don’t think because you haven’s witness anything with your own eyes so this means there is a chance you might be ding this for nothing? I am faced with a mind war most days, what you need to do is remember the reasons why there is a CREATOR, and once you have done this carry on, its pointless to want your sins forgiven but you only believe 70% of the scripture or doubt that your sins is truly forgiven, you must always have both feet planted solid in your believe and faith in our Creator. Always look at the smaller things, if we were here by chance due to some scientific evolution or big bang, how is it possible that everything works so perfectly in its own way, and I mean EVERYTHING, every animal, insect or bird knows his place in the world, even in reproducing is unique ,one from the other, even natural non lab made fruits and vegetables have their hidden healing secrets, the stars and luminaries are all in their right place to fulfill their purpose, every single cell in your body knows what its function is all of this could not just be due to some big bang or by billion years of evolution, this is proof of something much greater and more complex than we can ever comprehend. So honor YaHuwah by keeping his Holy days, acknowledge his grand design whether you understand it or not, don’t let people around you break your faith in Him by listening to their earthly conclusions and opinions, if they are stead fast in the religion of science I suggest you be steadfast in your faith in the Creator. One of the biggest signs closer to the end times is that everyone will judge you and laugh at you and mock you and one day persecute you, this was never gonna be for majority as most prefer to go with what is convenient and most widely accepted. I have had a run in with this often, I have learned it is better to avoid people that will bombard you with scientific questions and reasoning, as most of your answers will be scripture based, and they do not even believe in scripture as its “man made”, therefore quoting scripture is not accepted by most anti-christian or atheists. Rather spend your time saving people who are at least a little bit open to it, unless YaHuwah pressures you to do otherwise as His Will is most important at the end of the day.

Then there is Pentecost, this is a reminder of Yahusua’s rise from the tomb and his return to heaven but also the promise of his soon return, this is also just a partial fulfillment, the complete fulfillment will be as from just before His 2nd coming with the pouring out of the Latter Rain just before the close of probation. Go and refresh your memory on his promises for all of those who follow him, believe in his love and guidance and never loos faith, go and read the whole book of Mathews and be glad not depressed, we all constantly say that the world is in a state of terror and evil and needs a solution or else the earth will soon become a doomed place, this is incorrect thinking, YaHuwah would never have designed a home that is flawed, He created it prefect and it will never falter, unless its part of His will, yes the earth will reach doomsday , BUT BY HIS HANDS ONCE ALL HIS CHILDREN HAVE BEEN COLLECTED FROM AMONG’ST THE WEEDS, and no other way, I say this to you because even this can be a form of lack of faith and trust in His promises!

So how do we plan our year to to fall in line with YaHuwah’s intended yearly holy days and to get back to our roots.

The first NEW moon is Biblical New Year, this is to celebrate another year and commitment to the CREATOR, renewing and refreshing our relationship with Him and also to commit to more spiritual growth.

On the fourteenth day of the same month is Passover, then followed with a week long celebration of the deliverance of Yahushua, none of these were nailed to the cross, by saying that it has been nailed to the cross we can in the same breath assume the the 7th day Sabbath is also nailed to the cross? We can’t have it both ways, these days were put aside to help us grow and to bring us back to Him, why will he nail it to the cross if its there to help us, but also, why call these holy days an holy convocation? Just think about it, we could carry on walking the wide road where everyone is on, or turn of to the narrow one which very few find? The pagan holidays were put in place to replace these holy ones and to cover it in such a manner that you would not even notice that they were actually missing, giving you the idea that your life is in sync with scripture, but its actually the opposite.

Leviticus 23:4-6

These [are] the feasts of the LORD, [even] holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons. In the fourteenth [day] of the first month at even [is] the LORD’S Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month [is] the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

The very next day is the Feast of unleavened bread,so prior you should removed all leavened things from your house, as this a requirement. On the day of Passover you should be celebrating it, don’t see it as something to get over quick. Passover supper can be done in a way that accommodates the whole household and but still keep it special. The following is what is used:

Grape juice – this symbolizes the blood of Yahushua that washes away our sins.

Bitter herbs – symbolizes the death of Yahushua.

Salt – represents the tears of repentance. A dish with sea or rock salt can be passed around and each takes a pinch of it.

Sop – is a dish of dried fruits, this symbolizes the night when they asked Yahushua who would betray Him, and He said it will be the one who places his and with him in the Sop.

Unleavened bread – Israelites had to remove all leavened thing from their homes before the night of deliverance out Egypt. The same way we eat the unleavened bread celebrating the day of deliverance from this sinful world with Yahushua’s second coming.

Later that evening is the most special event, the communion, passing of the Cup, best is to have additional unleavened bread and a cup, try keep it special and get a special cup, kids under age of twelve should not partake as they are not yet accountable for their own souls. Truly walk in your mind through the events leading up to the Crucifixion, understand the meaning and praise Yahushua for He is our High priest, our sacrificial LAMB and our savior. Explain each of the above in detail with the young ones as they are the next generation and need to carry the flame into the darkness. After this everyone can join in with a prayer, each taking a turn to thank Yahushua and to show their true gratitude for his ultimate sacrifice.

Now the feast of unleavened bread starts the following day, it is from the 15th of the first month till the 21st, you don’t need to take of work but no leavened should be consumed. It also starts of on a Sabbath known as a HIGH SABBATH. This is a period of family togetherness and more spiritual growth through perhaps bible studies in a group, prayers and praise, even perhaps refreshing up on prophecies seeing as not everyone might be on the same level especially when outside family members or friends join in.

There is three main days in this weak:

High Sabbath on the 15th.

Offering of the Wave Sheaf/ Feast of first fruits. The 16th, Yahushua’s Resurrection.

The last day of the Feast that falls on the 21st but also a Sabbath.

Leviticus 23:9-10

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest unto the priest:

Corinthians 15:17-22

And if Christ be not raised, your faith [is] vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. But now is Christ risen from the dead, [and] become the first fruits of them that slept. For since by man [came] death, by man [came] also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

The important day that stands out during this period besides the two Sabbath days, what is also important is the Wave Sheaf, this is to celebrate Yahushua’s rise from the grave. Wave Sheaf high lights the Resurrection and the new start, this was the start of the new, even in hes death He kept the Sabbath and rose the following day, this became the ultimate event, he died for our sins, and set us free, he also promised to come again and take us up to meet him in the clouds to take us home and we will be renewed, just as time is renewed from here. Wave sheaf is sheaves of grain that symbolizes new life, beginning and is held up in offering to our Creator, other seeds like corn or beans and so one can also be watered prior to Wave Sheaf to sprout and be held up in prayer for offering.

So do yourself a favor, before shooting holes through all that you have read, do some soul searching, read up for yourself, you do not need to be a prophet or a pastor to understand what the Creator wanted for us and what he commanded of us, as soon as you start looking at what the majority does, you are heading in the wrong direction. This pass few months I have noticed allot of things, regarding my own life, things that was distractions and were keeping me from my goal, movies, the internet, cellphone games and more, the one thing that truly hit me between the eyes time and again was  “ Ye cannot serve God and mammon “ every time I wanted to work on this, something else was a better option, in five days of having time I have managed to only spent maybe an hour on this, this is why this saying is so true.

I know not everything out there is a sin, but unfortunately most of it is, if it keeps you from spiritual growth, then my friend…….. IT’S IN THE WAY. I can not tell you what to do or believe, I can only share with what I have learned, your sins and hobbies is between you and YaHuwah, and we all think we have time, but we don’t know how much, and the more people say the end is near the more we grow tired of it, but this in itself is part of end time signs.
