  1. Thanks Diane, waiting for that trumpet, praying for souls. It is important to reach Jewish people with the Good News of Christ.

      1. The ‘new testament ‘ has to be read in Jewish perspective. The Gospel is Jewish. That is what the church doesnt (want) to understand. The Messiah is a Jew. There are only the Feast of Adonai. Thanks for the post.

        1. AMEN Ruben!! I could say AMEN to that all day long. Yeshua lived a Jewish life, kept Jewish festivals, He davened, the apostles continued to go to the Temple after His resurrection. Jewish life for them did not stop! Thank you for this!

  2. I loved reading about the festivals. Thank you for sharing with all of us over on the Grace and Truth Link-up.

  3. Could someone help me understand WHY GOD will turn the Feasts days into mourning? Amos 5:21, Amos, 8:10, Hosea 2:11 & Isaiah 1:14. I thought it was to celebrate. I was in a discussion with someone and they were saying that IF the Church is Raptured one of the FEASTS DAYS (Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Feast of Tabernacles the RAPTURE is what brings about the mourning. Any thoughts?

    1. These verses pertain to Israel’s times of mourning due to their sins and are not related to a rapture at all. Isaiah for instance is known as having two distinct sections which are referred to as 1 Isaiah and 2 Isaiah in Judaism and by religious scholars. This is because the first part of Isaiah (prior to Chapter 40) is written about a time of judgment and a time of mourning and exile for Israel. This is commemorated during a period of mourning known as Tisha B’Av where Jews fast and remember the destruction of the two Temples and also the exile of the Jewish people. 2nd Isaiah (after Chapter 40) is known as the chapters of consolation, which is where the restoration of Israel is prophesied and the people are consoled. So these pertain to Israel and not the church or a rapture. The Messianic Era will be a time of peace and not mourning.

  4. It’s interesting to read about the Jewish festivals. Thank you for writing about it. It definitely makes me think about the celebrations that I grew up with vs the celebrations that we read about in the bible.
    Greetings, Marjan

  5. I am a Christian and I LOVE this! We do a sedar meal on Passover, and you are so right im going to start studying the other festivals, Jesus celebrated them so why wouldnt we! I love this. And what i love more than anything is when people of different faith can come together in love and even cooler when we can agree on things like this <3

    1. I am so glad you want to learn more! Let me know if I can be of any help! I also have a discipleship group on Facebook that you can join where I will be doing more about this and I am also going to be interviewing one of my professors who just wrote a book coming out soon called Finding Messiah: A Journey into the Jewishness of the Gospel! You can find the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/womenofworthchristian

  6. I am a Christian and my sons and I celebrate the all of the feasts!….. I will admit we are still new to celebrating them but they are beautiful and we are so thankful to learn as much as we can.

    1. I am happy to hear you are learning from the festivals and I hope you continue to find the beauty and meaning in them and I know your sons will grow up appreciating them so much!
