 How To Celebrate the Feasts - http://seekbibletruth.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=71%3Acelebrate&catid=34%3Aappointedtimes&Itemid=55

 

the problem with Jewish websites is a lot of them follow the Lunar calendar that the Jews adopted while in Babylonian captivity and they never went back to the solar calendar as instituted by the Most High...He is the God of the DAY not the night..a DAY starts at SUNRISE not sunset...

I try to keep things as accurate as possible...some feasts begin at evening such as preparation for Passover, some begin at the beginning of the DAY which is sunrise..

7 Feasts of the Lord - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jucWogonDKA

 

I base this schedule on the Qumran Calendar and on the words of Moses as recorded at http://www.simonkeen.prohosts.org/calendars/articles/2008.htm

The Appointed Times and Festivals that we are to keep today.

Do we today have to observe all of the above appointed times and festivals? This is a question that each individual should take before the Most High in prayer. Whenever I ponder this question myself, there is one thought that keeps coming back at me. When Moses gave his code of law to Israel just berore his death, he did not require that the people as whole celebrate every appointed time and festival. This is what he actually commanded them:

(12) Keep the Sabbath day to sanctify it, as Yahweh your God commanded you. (13) Six days you will work, and you will perform your labours. (14) And the seventh is a sabbath to Yahweh your God. You will not perform any labour, you and your son, and your daughter, and your servant, and your maid servant, and your bull, and your donkey, and all your cattle, and your stranger that in your gates. So that your servant and your maid servant will rest like you. (15) And you will remember that you were a servant in the land of Egypt. And Yahweh your God brought you out from there with a strong hand, and an outstretched arm. Thus Yahweh your God commanded you to make the Sabbath day. Deuteronomy 5:12-15 and Deuteronomy 16:1-17

In short Moses commanded them to keep two appointed times, the Sabbath and the Passover, and the three Pilgrimages, the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the Festival of Weeks, and the Festival of Gathering which Moses here called the Festival of Tabernacles. What all of these have in common is that their observance is not dependant on the existance of the temple and the priesthood. The observance of the rest of the appointed times depends on the temple, even the Day of Atonements, Yom Kippur. One may think from the wording of the relevant commandments, that this day should be observed today. It is true that the commandments required that all of Israel was to "afflict the soul" on this day, despite the fact that Moses never repeated this commandment in his code of law. However it was for a reason that Israel was to do this as per the wording of Leviticus 16:29-34. The reason being, that on this day, the high priest would enter into the holy of holies to make an atonement for the people, hence on this day the people were to be pure before Yahweh.

Today there is no temple, and no priesthood. Therefore it is my belief that there is no requirement to keep any of the appointed times that Moses did not command Israel before his death. However again I stress that all of this is my opinion, seek the Most High for the truth.
