  1. sory to inform you all that all those feast stated are not God’s feast. God gave Israel 7 Feast, Passover, Unleaven bread, first fruits, Feast of weeks, Trumpets, Atonememt, Booths, the rest are man made

    • they are called God’s feast days.
      Jesus fulfilled the spring feasts
      Moses told the people to take the lamb into there home for 4 days then they shall kill it. Jesus came into Jerusalem riding on a colt and was accepted by the people for 4 days then killed. he rose on first fruits during the feast of unleavened bread and gave the holy spirit on pentecost.
      so he will fulfill the Fall feast when he comes back. tabernacle God with us. Day of atonement he will show his wounds. oh my we did kill the Messiah. in bible Jesus was taken to the Jerusalem to be circumsised on the eight day after birth during the feast of tabernacle.
      so we should expect the Lord to come during the fall feasts.

    • Passover, unlearned bread,First fruits, Pentecost The Spring Feast./// The Fall Feast are Trumpets, Attonments, Tabernacle.

  2. Shalom everyone. I am Cyatta… also known as Essence. My heritage is native American, my inheritance is Christianity; as that is what my family clung to as a religion and taught all of its offspring. Through growing up I have studied many religions via higher academia. I personally have realized that I am a believer 😌… & my spirit and soul resonates more with messianic Judaism. I desire to get in proper alignment with Yahweh & Yeshua where the holy days are concerned. I am in the process of unlearning and releasing all wrong teachings and I rebuke all ignorance.
    This post and the comments have been extremely helpful to me this a.m. please feel free to respond with any helpful information for someone of my background to learn all holy days and rituals; as well as any other helpful information, links, books, and videos that will serve a beneficial and effective tools to help others learn the correct ways to honor and praise Yahweh, to pay our respects and show gratitude to Yeshua for his work done on the cross, and to keep from grieving the holy spirit.
    It’s unfortunate that I had to reach outside of the churches I have attended for this information. Yet, I am grateful for the opportunity to meet God’s other children in the church body that extends beyond four walls and lead to many nations in the land of the living.

    • Hello! was scrolling through the comments just now & we have very similar stories. I was raised in the Catholic Church but we rarely attended Church services. Both of my parents come from large Irish families & except for both of my grandmothers, the adults seemed to consider it more of a traditional practice than spiritual. Before I entered high school though, my parents decided to leave Catholicism & attend a our good friends/neighbor’s small Protestant congregation instead as they had realized that so many of the doctrines were non-biblical & they were trying to get the whole family closer to God. I think my sister & I entering our teens around that time had something to do with it. My mother has never been good at being the new person or not the person in charge who os also the expert of the group. I think she attended one Sunday service at that church.
      Luckily, I was blessed to have many strong followers of Christ in my life & I am grateful to say that I accepted Him as my Lord & Savior at age 16. Of course I got caught up in the teenage years until I became pregnant with my son and although I was not growing in Him during those years, I never doubted He was the truth & the Savior. Even if I wasn’t sure of anything else in the Bible at that time! Becoming a mother drove me back to my Bible & it was like He was waiting right there with open arms! I would say that was when we truly began our journey together, I was 20 & things were tough for many years, but Yeshua & our Heavenly Father carried me & my son through it every time. I hate to say this, but I would off/on just get caught up in life & because I did not have a strong connection to a community of fellow believers, I would be hot/cold. It breaks my heart to think of how I took Him for granted so many times! Because when I look back on it all, not only did He never leave me – He continued to pursue my heart & soul with the understanding & unconditional love that only He can would have been able to give me during that time. I am so lucky be able to say that COVID was a blessing for me in many ways, as it forced me to not only change things in my work/life balance for the better, but it also caused me to run to the arms of the only truth I have ever known, Yeshua the King! I spent so much of my time with Him & His word over the last two years and I am so grateful! At first, just getting to know Him and then falling in love with Him & truly feeling the peace that only comes when the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in you. I will be honest I felt I should find a biblically based church so that I could fellowship, give back to the House of God, & continue to grow in my faith. But I have to be honest as much as I believe that Christ is the only way to salvation and that the Bible is the word of God, I have never been a fan of organized religion. Not to mention, I have grown very distrustful of most institutions in this world. And I was wary of allowing potential false teachings into my life before I truly felt like I had the chance to get a solid handle on the scriptures with the Spirit of wisdom & some bible study channels. I am so grateful that was the choice I made bc it was what What is right for me. My sister is a very strong Christian, she and her husband went to a Bible college and attend a Protestant Bible church. She kept nagging me to start finding a congregation & although I didn’t disagree, I had also started hearing about the Lords’s Holy days on a biblical podcast I follow & I had no idea that there were any followers of Yeshua that we’re supposed to practice anything from the Old Testament. Granted, I haven’t been to church in many years, but I have been reading my Bible like crazy playing catch up & I was really intrigued. Then I realize that there’s many people that I had either connected with or just follow on line that were on fire for Yeshua, but I hadn’t really checked out what denominations he belong to and how I could find a church like theirs that celebrates the face I truly believe we were supposed to always remember. As well as, during this time realizing that the celebration of Christmas is a complete deception & although I’m sure there are many Christians who will celebrate until their dying day, Unless it is done complete ignorance to its origins & the fact that not once is it mentioned in the Bible. We are never told to celebrate Yeshua’s birthday, and every single Christmas tradition is an exact rip off practice of the various pagan winter solstice celebrations. 12/25 specifically celebrates the birthday of the pagan Sun god. It should break my heart to realize another huge deception of this world, as well as the fact that I love my Christmas tree every year, but I made a decision that I would never celebrate that again. We may not live under the law in the sense that we have salvation through the cross, but I feel like anybody that knows its true origins and still continues to celebrate is mocking our Lord especially those of us who claim to be seeking Him & Truly wanting to live in his ways (which it’s not like it’s a secret lol I think many of us are in denial about many things!)
      I have explored scripture searching for the answers to my questions regarding the way we ate supposed to worship & Celebrate our salvation Lord. I knew in my gut I could not go to church and celebrates Christmas, but I know so many great questions celebrate Christmas and their churches do to. Having been a lukewarm follower for so long I did not study my Bible for many years I fell insecure about my conviction on this topic. But it was almost like when I took that stand in his name, He took me on the most amazing journey to understanding so much more about who He is, who we are, and what the body of Christ should be doing at this time. There was completely divine guidance at His hands as I used the scriptures as well as various Online resources to gather information and pray. What did the church look like before it was infiltrated by the evil one and turned into another deception? That was my first question. It’s almost as if this was the last question answered, but as I worked my way through the scriptural understanding, the Holy Spirit was providing answers at the perfect pace & placing people in my path that understood what I was trying to do well also understanding that I was having to let go of a lot of false paradigms. Luckily I had let go of the rest in 2020, but letting go of core family beliefs while also trying to learn about others is nuts. It’s almost like Yeshua had been waiting for the day when I would realize all this, because He immediately took my hand to guide my mind/heart/spirit to the truth finally! And He revealed it & confirmed it in such perfect time. I never felt frustrated, overwhelmed, scared, or discouraged. It was like we were on this journey together, He was cheering me on! What’s funny is I have been trying to find a church or place of worship where it was basically like a Jewish temple but everybody believes in Yeshua. I don’t know why I didn’t think to look up Messianic Jewish temples until just a a week or so ago. I am pleased to say that I have one locally & I attended my first Shabbat this past Saturday. And it was amazing! As long ago as last year, I had also been really getting into worship music in Hebrew and English. I’m not really sure why, I just felt compelled in my spirit towards it in this beautiful language. I am so excited to have a community of people that believe the same thing I do and worship the way I do. I feel like I needed to let him shape me on my own considering this was not the transition I expected. But I have to say in all my searching as scriptures, I honestly feel like the separation of Christianity from Judaism was not what Jesus or the Father intended. Yeshua came as the prophesied Messiah to the Jews, I don’t understand why the Gentile followers of Jesus decided they were to Start their own religion. I am shather is more than that story, on both sides, But I have to say my mind is blown at the way the Holy Spirit He’s working in me. As much as I feel like I’ve literally learned everything I was taught (not only in religion about the world with a lie) in the past 2 years,
      I honestly feel So grateful to have my eyes opened & for all that i have learned, and I am hungry for more!!! I hope that was not too long winded. I apologize I wanted to just let you know I am so right there with you and believing that the practices of the Messianic Jews is really what we should all be doing in order to truly feel fulfilled in our Spirit and to stay on fire for the Lord until he returns. I would love to chat witj a fellow new kid someday whether or the phone or zoom if that would be something that would interest you. My email ltcmoe85@gmail.com.
      Thank you & Shalom!

  3. According to this Unleavened Bread and First Fruits are on the same day (Evening) Apr16. Tell me why Pentecost is NOT June 11 at sunset which is Sivan 12 exactly 50 days after First Fruits?

  4. Nisan 17 was 3 days after Nisan 14, which was the Feast of Passover. Jesus died on Feast of Passover between 3:00 pm and 6:pm. He was buried on the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15) after 6:00 pm, then rose again on the third day (Nisan 17 A.D. 30) The Temple was destroyed on AV 9, A.D. 70 (forty years later) which fulfilled Ezekiel 4:6. In case you really like the timekeeping aspect, On Nisan 10 was the day that Messiah rode into Jerusalem on the foal of an Ass, this was Psalm Sunday…Messiah (the Lamb) dwelt with Israel until He was sacrificed as the Passover Lamb of God on Nisan 14. Jesus the Messiah ascended to the Father 50 days after His Resurrection. That was the Feast of Pentecost, when the first disciples of Messiah were given the Holy Spirit to dwell inside of them.

    • I apologize, Acts 1:3 does say He was seen with them 40 days…so the Apostles had ten days until Feast of Pentecost to await for the promise from the Father. The Holy Spirit was given to the church on the Feast of Pentecost as a gift of betrothal to His Bride.

    • These cannot be known for certain as the New Testament never mentions a calendar date. This is one possible scenario and is reasonably thought out. Because the Gospels are not date specific, I don’t believe it is all that important. Thanks for your comment.

      • Shalom Larry,
        Why wouldn’t it be important? Isn’t the Messiahs calendar the one we should pay most attention to?

        • “Messiah’s calendar?” Not sure what you mean. No calendar date (name/number of the month or the number of the day of the month) was important enough to the gospel message that any of the New Testament writers ever bothered to mention it.

  5. Does not First Fruits represent our Savior’s ascension to the Father? For He is the First of the First Fruits. And would it not be the 3rd day and nights after He was crucified being placed in The Tomb just at sunset on the Sabbath?

    • Hi Sandra,
      It is true that First Fruits foreshadows Yeshua’s resurrection. As to the exact timing… well, I don’t think we can nail that down with absolute certainty. That doesn’t change the fact that Yeshua was crucified, buried, and raised again in fulfilment of these Feasts. For further clarification, or maybe for further ambiguation, check out my post Guess What Day It Is.

  6. Does Pentecost/Shavuot always fall on a Sunday? If not I’m hoping for more in-depth explanation as I at this place and time in my spiritual walk not 100% sure. Thank you.

    • Hi Sandra,
      You ask an excellent question, and will find that people disagree. Check out my post Shavuot, The Undated Holiday for my take. If you are part of a local fellowship, please keep Pentecost/Shavuot when those you are in covenant with celebrate it. I believe unity is far more important than figuring out who is right.

      This year, the two different traditions will keep Shavuot on the same day, Sunday, June 5, which is the same day the Christian community is observing Pentecost. It is a great opportunity to share.

      • Shavuot’s timing is really very simple. “Lev 23:11 And he shall wave the sheaf before YHWH, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.”
        The question is always: “is it the morrow after a Feast Shabbat OR morrow after the seventh day Shabbat?”
        The plain, clear answer is found in:
        “Lev 23:15 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:
        Lev 23:16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; …”
        There it is! To number 50 days AND land on a “morrow after the sabbath”, one has to START on a morrow after the Sabbath! And, since there are no more feast Sabbaths in late spring/early summer to land on, Scripture is clearly speaking of the morrow after a seventh day Shabbat!
        This issue has caused so much division and confusion when it is really clear and simple if one just reads further on in the chapter.
        Shalom!

        • It is simple if you only follow your English translation and dismiss the Hebrew text, the Septuagint text, and differing English translations. For more, see my post Shavuot – The Undated Holiday. However, we should not divide over this. Here, it is acceptable to agree to disagree. Both methods could even be wrong.

  7. My Name is Mark I’m single no family OK and know absolutely no one that celebrates these feast days can yall please email me or send me step by step instructions on how I can celebrate these feast days and God approving of it some of these feast are week long events and there is no way I can take off work for a week at a time can you help

    • Shalom Mark,

      When I first started keeping the Biblical feasts I thought there was no one else around. After a while, I began finding others and later discovered there were many. Just start by being faithful and doing the best that you can.

      There are a few articles on each feast here on The Messianic Light, along with some suggested resources. Most of the books you can sample on Amazon to see if they interest you.

      As for taking a week off work, that is certainly not a Scriptural command. There are only seven days during the year (besides the weekly Sabbath) when we are told to not do our regular work: the first and seventh days of Unleavened Bread, Shavuot, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, the first day of Sukkot and the Eighth Day.

      Passover, First Fruits, and the days in between the “sabbaths” I just listed are not days you must take off. Hanukkah and Purim aren’t even commanded at all. Celebrating feasts is not meant to be a burden and you should not feel obligated to take a whole week off just because someone else does.

      Be blessed in your efforts!
