Ten Feasts Every Year
Celebration of Jesus Yeshua Messiah
Which Feasts Are to Be Kept by the Faithful Believers in the Messiah Jesus?
I recommend celebrating and meeting YHWH with joy and love with all the family and friends during Ten Feasts.
My recommendation is without obligation, without constraints, and without hypocrisy. If you can and are able to keep and enjoy these Ten Feasts, you do well. If you cannot, then your are free.
Do not listen to the legalistic people who say that “You must religiously observe all or some of the Feasts.” Do not listen to the lawless popular beloved pastors (preachers) who say “You must never observe any Feast.”
Here is the word of wisdom, If you can and are able to observe them, you do very well.
Here is a list of the Ten Feasts:
(1) The Passover Lamb Feast.
(2) The Resurrection of the Lord Jesus, counting exactly three days after the Passover.
(3) The Unleavened Bread Feast, the purity and purification received from Christ.
(4) The First Fruit Feast which is dedication of our profits and harvest to YHWH.
(5) The true Godly Thanksgiving Day on the First Fruit Day.
(6) The Pentecost Day, when God gave us (Moses) His commandments.
(7) The Birth of Jesus Messiah which is on the Day of Pentecost.
(8) The Day of Trumpets, which will be the Day of the future Second Coming.
(9) The Day of Atonement, which is the Declaration of our redemption through Jesus.
(10) The Feast of Tabernacles, which is God living with us.
Before we begin this brief article, there are few definitions and points to make precise our understanding.
1. In the Bible, there are Seven annual Feasts (Festivals) ordained by God. Six of them relate to Israel’s redemption. One of them was ordained to Adam and Eve, i.e. to all human race. This one is Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). God commanded Adam and his children to offer a blood kosher (clean) sacrifice on Yom Kippur every year to remind them that they are under the penalty of death due to their sins and that God’s mercy will keep them one year after another. Adam and Abel obeyed. Cain thought better not to obey God. This Feast is repeated to the Jews to remind them of its solemn importance.
2. The term Feasts, as mentioned is the Scripture, is “Mo’adim L’YHWH,” which is “Meetings with YHWH God.” The Seven Feasts (Sheba' Mo'adim) are described in Leviticus 23.
3. Three of these Feasts required that the Jews go up to Jerusalem and offer their tithes and offering in the Temple and enjoy it in Jerusalem. These three Feasts are Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles.
4. Four of these Feasts are in the Spring. As types, these four feasts are fulfilled in the First Coming of the Messiah, Jesus. The four Spring Feasts (Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, and Pentecost (Feast of Seven Weeks)).
5. Three of these Feasts are in Autumn (the Fall). As types, these three will be fulfilled at the Second Coming of the Messiah, Jesus. The three Autumn Feasts are Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Booths (Tabernacles).
6. There is no Third, or Fourth, or Fifth Coming of Jesus, as some Churches teach to accommodate the multiple raptures and the imagined future Millennium, see the graph on Rapture on the website (www.4Messiah.com).
7. Believers in the Messiah, are not obligated to observe the Feasts, but it is of great significance, joy and great benefits when they observe them. Colossians 2:16-19 “So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths (Feasts), which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God.”
8. It is not a sin if believers do not observe the Seven Feasts (or the Ten Feasts). If I am able to observe these Feasts, or some of them, then I would observe them. If I am unable, then I cannot without guilt or unrighteousness.
9. We could add the Birth of the Messiah Jesus as an eighth Feast. The Birth of Jesus is on the Day of Pentecost, see the evidence and calculations in the graph below.) The pagan celebration of Christmas is not the birth of Christ of the demon god Tammuz. Atheist countries celebrate Christmas exactly as Christians do, including atheist communist China. Some Jews (rabbi Rambam) said that Jesus was born in September, but this is inaccurate. Some Messianic Jews (rabbi J. Cahn) say that Jesus was born on Passover, but this is also inaccurate.
10. We could add the Resurrection of the Messiah as a ninth Feast.
11. Also, on the Day of Pentecost, YHWH gave His Word to Moses on Mount Sinai in the year 1447 BC. On the Day of Pentecost, YHWH, The Living Word of God, was given to us in Bethlehem in the year 7 BC. This means the the Word of God YHWH was born in the flesh after 1440 years from writing it on tablets of stones.
12. The most important object of our faith and obedience is the person of the Messiah Yeshua Jesus. Rituals and ceremonies are good for remembrance, for celebration and for teaching, but the Messiah is the cornerstone of our faith.
13. Celebration of these Seven Feasts must be in the heart and the mind and not only an exterior celebration or commercial exchange and advantage.
14. The Jews added two other celebrations which are of national importance: (1) Purim which commemorate Esther’s redemption of her people from the demonic Haman, and (2) Hanukkah which is a commemoration of three events: the Dedicaiton of the Temple (i) By Solomon, (ii) By Ezra, and (iii) By the Maccabees. These national feasts are not biblical.
[I] The Feast of the Passover Lamb.
Date: 14 Nissan
Date: Sundown April 8, 2020 to sundown April 9, 2020
Duration: One day.
This Feast commemorates God's deliverance of the Israelites under Moses out of the slavery in Egypt, Exodus 12:1-7; 11-13; Leviticus 23:4-8.
The Hebrew word Pesah (Pesach) means to "Pass Over." The Angel, who was assigned to kill every firstborn male in the land of Egypt, passed over the houses that had the blood on the door frame.
The innocent Passover (Pascal) Lamb was killed and its blood was painted on the door frame (upper mantle and two posts).
The Messiah was arrested on Tuesday night after He had the Passover meal with his disciples. Tuesday night is the beginning of the Passover Feast.
The Messiah was offered as the Passover Lamb of God on the Cross on Wednesday. He was nailed on the cross with Roman large nails at about 9 AM - 11 AM.
The Messiah died on the cross around 3 PM. The Jews thought to force kill the Messiah Jesus because the High Sabbath was the following day. Thursday was the High Sabbath and it was not the weekly Sabbath as the Church falsely teach.
The next day 15 Nissan, Thursday was the High Sabbath which begins seven days of Unleavened Bread Feast to follow.
The Messiah Yeshua Jesus was offered as the Passover sacrifice on Passover day.
Some Jews used to call the Passover Day “the Preparation Day” because the following day begins the Unleavened Bread Feast.
Hence, it is not the preparation day for Passover, but rather the preparation day (removing all yeast from the house) for the following Unleavened Bread Feast.
The four Gospels give us the account of the Messiah's crucifixion: (a) Matthew 27:57-63. (b) Mark 15:42-43. (c) Luke 23:54-56. (d) John 19:14.
The Passover Seder (Passover Meal) celebration is representative of God’s redemption of His sons from Egypt where they were enslaved for hundreds of years.
The Last Supper is of a great significance. It is the commencement of application of the New Covenant of Redemption by the blood of the Messiah.
A covenant must be ratified by blood. This means, breaking the covenant merits the shedding of blood. Thus the wages of sin, (breaking the covenant or breaking God’s Moral Laws), is death.
The Messiah commenced the New Covenant with His own blood, which He shed on the Cross. The Last Supper (the last Passover meal which Jesus had): The sharing of the Bread and the Wine represent the Messiah's sacrifice, body and blood, see Psalm 22; Luke 220; 1 Cor. 5:7; Eph. 2:11-13.
[II] The Resurrection of the Jesus, exactly three days after the Passover.
The Day of Resurrection of Jesus Messiah was exactly three days and three nights from the moment of His death on the Cross.
This is an very easy calculation. He died on the Cross on Wednesday at about 3 PM. He rose from the dead on Saturday (the Sabbath of Rest) at about 3 PM.
Easter, is NOT the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but rather Easter is the pagan Feast of the resurrection of the demon god Tammuz.
Let us follow the Scriptures only and not mix it with the pagan culture of the Church or of Hollywood.
The doctrine of Sunday resurrection is promoted by the Roman Catholic Church to excise and remove the Messianic original believers from the Roman Catholic Church and to compromise the faith with the Sun-god Day worship since the fourth century.
The Church continues its attack on the Day of Resurrection of Jesus by changing the Commandments of God: the Fourth Commandment of God was reinterpreted as “Sun-god Day Sabbath.” Some theologians added to this violation by saying, it does it matter; any day in the week is the Sabbath, God does not care.” The Church violates of God’s Moral Laws.
[III] The Unleavened Bread Feast (Hag ha Matzot)
Date: 15 Nissan
Date: Sundown April 8, 2020 to sundown April 15, 2020
Duration: Seven days.
The Feast of Unleavened Bread (Hag HaMatzah (singular) – Hag HaMatzot (plural)) is observed on 15-22 Nissan, Leviticus 23:6-8; Exodus 12:15-20.
Jesus Messiah was buried on the evening of Wednesday 14 Nissan. The Unleavened Bread Feast begins 15 Nissan for seven days and it is observed immediately after the Passover Feast.
Some count them along with the Passover day as eight days in total. These eight days are called at times ‘Passover Feast' and at times ‘Unleavened Bread Feast'. (Ezekiel 45:21-23; Mat 26:17; Mark 14:1, 12; Luke 22:1, 7; John 19:14; Acts 12:3-4; Ex. 23:15; Lev. 23:4-8; Deut. 16:1-8).
The unleavened bread (Matsah) represents pure bread. The Messiah, mind, heart, body and spirit, is pure without any sin. He never committed any sin. The unleavened bread represents the Messiah.
The unleavened bread represents also those who believe in the Messiah Yeshua and who are obedient to the Messiah and His Law through the process of sanctification and redemption.
Those who compromise and live according to Hollywood popular lifestyle are not pure bread, but leavened bread. They may look similar, but they are not the same. They do not represent Christ at all. In the Scriptures, leaven represents sin: Deut. 16:16; Luke 2:1; 1 Cor. 5:8.
[IV] The Feast of Firstfruits (Rashit – Bikkurim)
Date: 18 Nissan (The first day of the week (Sunday), immediately after the Passover Day.)
Date: Sundown April 13, 2020 to Sunday April 14, 2020
Duration: 1 day.
Everyone reaps from the work of his hands. Farmers, in particular, are the producers and the backbone of the nation. When they harvest their crops, they abstain from eating of it or selling their crops until after the Day of Firstfruits, Leviticus 23:9-14.
Each one brings a sheaf of barley of the harvest to the High Priest. The High Priest keeps them in the Temple and waits until the first day of the week (Sunday) after the Passover, then he waves this offering before God in order to (1) Bless, (2) Release, and (3) Dedicate.
The Day of Rashit or Bikkurim represents the waving of the sheaf before God.
Many Christians and Messianic Jews believe falsely that the Messiah rose from the dead on the Day of Bikkurim. But, actually the Day of Bikkurim does neither represent the harvest, nor the handing over of the sheaf to the priests. When you count three days and three nights from the Passover (Wednesday), you discover that Jesus rose from the dead on the Sabbath (Saturday) at about 3 PM.
This is a straight forward and simple calculation. Do not believe the Church or the Messianic Jews, do the math yourself.
The Messiah Jesus ascended to the Father and presented Himself as the Bikkurim on the First Day of the week (Sunday) early in the morning, which is the same time the High Priest offers the Bikkurim wave offering. This is the reason why Jesus told Mary Magdalena: Do not touch me for I have not ascended to my Father yet. After Jesus presented Himself before the Father as the Bikkurim, a few hours later, he came down and met the disciples and allowed them to touch Him, John 20:16-17.
Someone may say, how can Jesus be the Firstfruit by His resurrection since there were other people who were also resurrected before Him?
Jesus’s resurrection from the dead is not only a flesh body resurrection, but also an glorified flesh body resurrection. As such, He is the very first human (son of man) who has His glorified (inter-dimensional) body. He is the Firstfruit Bikkurim and we shall be changed to be like Him at His coming on the Final Day of Atonement.
At the Second Coming, whether we are alive or dead in the flesh, we will be resurrected and our bodies will be changed: have glorified (inter-dimensional) bodies just like our Firstfruit, our Messiah Yeshua Jesus. Daniel 12:1-3 “At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.”
The reference to shining is not only in the countenance, having a happy face, but the entire body will be shining, the nature of our body will be changed.
[V] The true Thanksgiving Day on the First Fruit Day.
We celebrate our American Thanksgiving to commemorate a lie. We claim that God blessed the early American settlers and they had peace and abundance with the original American Indians. This is not all the truth.
The early settlers exercised vicious torture, violence and murders against the original Americans (American Indians). We celebrate it innocently without knowing much about our history.
If we celebrate the American Thanksgiving then we ignore the March of Tears of the Indians and we ignore the ethnic cleansing applied by some British racist colonialists to take over the land from its original owners.
We need to celebrate a Godly Thanksgiving, namely, the Day of Firstfruit (Bikkurim) is a true and Godly Thanksgiving for us to keep.
[VI] The Feast of the Seven Weeks (Shavuot – Shabuot) (Hag ha Shavuot)
It is also called: Pentecost, Feast of Weeks, the Feast of Harvest, and the Latter Firstfruits (for the second crops).
Date: The First Day of the week (Sunday) after seven weeks immediately after the weekly Sabbath which follows the Passover. This means, it is the fiftieth day, hence it is called Pentecost in Greek, Leviticus 23:15-21; Deuteronomy 16:16.
Date: Sundown May 30, 2020 to sundown May 31, 2020
Duration: One day.
It is a time to commemorate three most important acts of YHWH towards mankind:
(1) God's Laws were given to Moses (the Ten Commandments) on that exact day.
(2) This is the day when Jesus the Messiah (the Word - YHWH - Gk: LOGOS - Aram: MELATA) was born from Miriam in Bethlehem in 6 BC. The virgin Miriam was conceived by the Holy Spirit on the Feast of Tabernacles in 7 BC, see Graph below for dates and calculations.
(3) The Holy Spirit was given to dwell in the true faithful obedient believers.
The Messiah, in anticipating his ascension promised the disciples that He shall not leave them orphans. He, YHWH the Holy Spirit came in a powerful manifestation on the Day of Shavuot Pentecost.
On that Day, the Holy Spirit filled the house, with a sound like a mighty wind and appeared as tongues (flames) of fire, and filled the disciples. (Acts 2) The apostle Peter referred to the prophet Joel who said that God would "pour out his Spirit on all flesh." Joel 2:28-32.
This was a real and true manifestation of the presence of God in the believers. This was a declaration and affirmation by God that the true believers are adopted and that they shall never be left as orphans. This is also a declaration that the bodies of the true believers, are the Temple of God. The title of God Immanuel (God with us) is fulfilled on that day.
[VII] The Birth of Jesus Messiah which is on the Day of Pentecost.
The early history indicates that the Disciples (the Messianic Hebrews - the Nazarene) did not pay great attention to the Birthday of Jesus.
But, when we discover know that the Birthday of Jesus was exactly the Pentecost Day, then we understand that it was not a separate Birthday, but rather included in the Feast of Pentecost.
For us today, the pagan Church celebrates Christmas on December 25 of every year. But, if we want to celebrate the true date of birth of Jesus and have a party with our families and children, then let it be on the right day, i.e., the very Day of Pentecost.
[VIII] The Feast of Trumpets Shofarot (Yom Truah - Rosh HaShanah)
Date: 1 Tishri.
Date: Sundown September 18, 2020 to sundown September 19,2020.
Duration: One day.
On this day, all Jews, synagogues, and believers sound the Shofar hundred times. The very last trumpet is called “takea’ gadolah” which means “The Last Trumpet.”
The shofar is the trumpet made from lambs horns. Sometimes, horns of other animals can be used.
The Day of Trumpets is the day of the creation of man, therefore, the Jewish year changes on the Day of Trumpet (Rosh haShannah).
The Sabbatical Year (Shmitah) and the Jubilee Year (Yobel) are determined by the Day of Trumpet.
This Feast of Trumpets (The Day of Truah) represents the Day of the Second Coming of the Messiah.
1 Corinthians 15:52 “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at “The Last Trumpet”*. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16 “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.”
* A Hebrew or a Jew would understand the term “last trumpet” as a specific “last trumpet” on the Day of Trumpets.
Some Christians associate, falsely, this trumpet with the seven trumpets of John’s Revelation. But, The book of Revelation was written more than ten years after Paul’s letters to the Corinthians and the Thessalonians, therefore, Paul could not have referred to the Seven Trumpets in the book of Revelation.
The Day of Trumpets (Rosh HaShanah) is also referred to as the "Day of Judgment". This refers to the Second Coming of Christ, because it will begin the final judgement of all the enemies of the Messiah and all the false believers.
The Day of Trumpets (Truah – Rosh HaShanah) begins ten most demanding days in the year. The first ten days of the month of Tishri are called The Days of Awe (Yamim Noraim). These days culminate in the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), John 5:24-27.
Leviticus 23:24-25 24 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath rest (i.e., another High Sabbath), a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation (meeting with God - a Feast). You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.' "
In Israel, the trumpets were sounded for:
1) A call to assembly.
2) An serious announcement Word from God.
3) A call for war.
4) A call to celebrate a Feast.
5) A call for Sabbath worship, the weekly Sabbath and the High Sabbaths.
6) A command for Israel to move location.
7) A call for impending Divine Judgment.
8) Today, a warning of impending rockets or bombs from the Muslim Palestinians who hate the Jews.
[XIV] The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur - Yom ha Kippurim)
Date: 10 Tishri.
Date: Sundown September 27, 2020 to sundown September 28, 2020
Duration: One day.
Leviticus 23:27-32 “Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. And you shall do no work on that same day (another High Sabbath), for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God. For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your Sabbath.”
When Jesus comes at the Second Coming, He will come with His angels (the hosts of heaven) and also with the sons of God (those spirits of the faithful believers who died in the past), with the sound of trumpet and He will exercise extreme judgment, vengeance, wrath, and cleansing against ‘The Tares' who are the billion false believers and the grapes who are the six billions non-believers.
God will wipe out, destroy and punish eternally, the false Christians, the false Jews, and non-believers who attacked Jerusalem. Yes, some unfaithful Jews will attack the Messianic believers and Jerusalem. The victory of Jesus will occur at the Valley of Jehoshaphat, after the nations met and planned war at Armageddon and moved to destroy Jerusalem.
On Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, Jesus Messiah will declare the completion of the redemption of His chosen TRUE ISRAEL (who are all the elect of Jewish or non-Jewish blood.) True Israel is not the political non-believing Israel today.
It is noteworthy to mention that the meaning of the word Atonement reflects:
(1) Expiation, (2) Propitiation, and (3) Reconciliation of the Messianic believers.
Such redemption requires blood of the sacrifice which is offered by the Messiah of Himself at the end of His First Coming on the Cross, Zech. 12:10; Isa. 66:7-14; Rom. 11:26; Hebrews 9:11-28; Romans 3:21-25.
[X] The Feast of Tabernacles (Booths – Sukkot) (Hag ha Sukkot)
Date: 15 Tishri
Date: Sundown October 2, 2020 to sundown October 9, 2020
Duration: 7 + 1 Days
The eight day (sundown October 9, 2020 to sundown October 10,2020) is called "Assembly of the Eighth" (Shemini Atzeret). The eighth day is also called the "Joy of the Torah" (Simchat Torah).
It is the Feast remembering and signifying God living among His people in tents (booths) while they were wandering on their way to the Promised Land of Israel.
It is also a Feast of Harvest, Fall harvest. This feast is a time of great joy and affirmation of the blessings of God. It is called "The Season of Our Rejoicing" (Zeman Simhateynu), Nehemiah 8: 14-18; Leviticus 23:34-43.
The believers are instructed to build temporary booths (huts - shelters) of branches in any shape or form, Leviticus 39:40. This is a great fun for the family and the children. The Sabra Jews are instructed also to live in them for seven days.
The Messiah saved His people from the slavery in Egypt, carried them through the desert, lived with them, comforted them, defended them and brought them to the Promised Land. This is the meaning of the Feast of Tabernacles. It is a reminder of God's faithfulness, redemption and protection.
The last day of the Feast of Tabernacles has two Messianic aspects:
(1) Lights: People carried lights and affixed them around the walls of the Temple, indicating that Messiah is the Savior and the Light of Israel and the Gentiles, Isaiah 49:6; James 1:17-18; Psalm 27:1; Micah 7:8; Isaiah 60:1; John 8:12; Revelation 21:22-23; Revelation 22:5.
The Messiah said in John 8:12: "I am the light of the world." The Messiah is the Living Word of God. He is the Word made flesh in Yeshua Jesus. Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
(2) Water: During the Feast of Tabernacles a solemn procession began each day of the Feast from the temple to the Pool of Siloam (Gihon Spring). A priest (kohen) fills a golden pitcher with water while he is followed by the crowd who sing and wave the Lulav Isaiah 12:3. The Seventh day of the Feast is called "The Great Hosanna" (Hoshanna Rabba).
This is also a reminder of the waters which God made to flow from the rock in the wilderness, Isaiah 11:9.
The Messiah said that He is the One who supplies the Living Waters, John 7:37-38: “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”
The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) represents
(1) The final Fall harvest which will occur at the Second Coming, Zechariah 14:16-19.
(2) YHWH God is living with the faithful Messianic believers, though now in tents, but at the Second Coming in the glorified eternal bodies.
The Tabernacles Sukkot represent also our temporary abode and shelter while we are waiting for the Messiah's Second Coming when we shall have our permanent dwelling with Him forever, Ezekiel 37:26-28.
During Sukkot the Lulav (palm branches) is waived in every direction symbolizing:
(1) The abundant harvest,
(2) God's omnipresence, and
(3) Peace because the Messiah Yeshua Jesus is the Prince of Peace SAR SHALOM.
All of this will be achieved at the Second Coming of the Messiah.
The Messiah sets His tabernacle, (dwells and lives), among us, John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God." John 1:14 reads, "... and the Word (Aramaic: MELATA) became flesh and dwelt (tabernacled) among us."
The Messiah Yeshua Jesus is the Word which became flesh (incarnated) and dwelt (tabernacled) among us. Actually, the conception of Miriam from the Holy Spirit was during the Feast of Tabernacles, see the Graph below.
When the Messiah spoke with His disciples about His eternal Kingdom, He said in Matthew 16:27-28: “For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works. Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”
Many people are puzzled by these verses. But, actually there were three disciples who did see the Kingdom to come and saw the glorification of the body of the Messiah just six days later: Matthew 17:1-5 “Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!”
Notice that Peter wanted to build three booths (Sukkot) for the Messiah, for Moses and for Elijah. While the booths (tabernacles) are temporary, yet the significance here is that the Feast of Sukkot represents the permanent abode of God with the glorified men forever in His Kingdom of Righteousness which will begin at the Second Coming.
What about Easter, Christmas and Other National Holidays?
National holidays are like Hanukkah (Temple Dedication Day), American Independence Day (4 July), Purim (Esther Redemption) Day, Thanksgiving Day, All Dead People Day, Halloween Day, Christmas Day, Ishtar (Easter) Day.
Here is my response: You may add and celebrate any day you wish, except if it has pagan (demonic) rituals or meanings or origins such as Halloween, Christmas, Ishtar day (Easter), or except if it commemorates the abuse or slavery or murders.
Pray that God gives you wisdom and enjoy the Feasts of God (Meetings with God).
