Did you know that God has festivals, celebrations, and holy days? The Bible calls them feast days. Leviticus 23:4 says: “These are the feasts of the Lord, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons” (Blueletterbible.com, 2010). In this passage of scripture, God gave specific days that he wanted his people to remember and never forget. These are the feast days mentioned in the chapter: Seventh Day Sabbath, Passover, Feast o f Unleavened Bread, First Fruits/Pentecost/Feast of Weeks, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Tabernacles. These days point to and glorify God. God thought enough of the days that he establish them (The Holy Days) as a sign. Exodus 31:13 says: “Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between you throughout your generations and me; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you” (Blueletterbible.com, 2010). By celebrating these days you will become sanctified or set apart by God, and it is a sign between you and He. A sign is a distinguishing mark according to the Hebrew. It is designed to make a difference between you and the rest of the world. If there was ever a question regarding who is associated with God and-and who’s not, these scriptures give us a clue.

If you love God and call yourself a follower of Christ, then strive to understand what these days are all about and compare them with the current day traditions of men. In Colossians 2:8 it says: “Beware lest any man spoils you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ” (Blueletterbible.com, 2010). That’s a power scripture and holds true for this day and age. These so called holidays that most people observe have nothing at all to do with Christ and are vain and deceptive. The whole purpose of its philosophies is to deceive you and cause you to worship other gods. Remember what it says in the ten commandments? In Exodus 20:3 it says, “that thou shalt have no other gods before me.” In conclusion: Study, study, study, and research. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (Blueletterbible.com, 2010). Don’t take my word for it, research it for yourself.
