Many who claim to be Christians, followers of Christ or the Bible celebrate “Christian” holidays that are not scriptural. Days like Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving have nothing to do with the Bible or Christ and are condemned as idolatry and sin in the scriptures. You may ponder, “What are we supposed to celebrate?” Did you know that the holy days in the Bible were truly about Christ? The biblical holy days foreshadowed many of the prophecies that Christ would fulfill when he arrived on the Earth.

An in depth study of the feast days will show you that they are directly related to Christ and Christ kept the days as well. The laws pertaining to the temple, sacrifice and priesthood were reformed in Christ (Hebrews 9:8-10) meaning made better so we do not keep the rites and rituals like sacrificing of animals as our forefathers did under the Old Covenant. We celebrate the days in remembrance of Christ and keep them as Sabbaths.

  1. The Sabbath - Christ is the Lord of the Sabbath (Matthew 12:8, John 1:1-3/14) 
  2. Passover - Christ is our Passover. We must cast out the leaven of malice and wickedness (I Corinthians 5:7-8)
  3. Firstfruits - When we repent, Christ makes us the firstfruit among men (James 1:18 and Revelations 14:4) 
  4. Trumpets - Trumpets were a warning for us to move and follow Christ. They have been blown and the warnings are going out. (Matthew 24:31) 
  5. Atonement - Christ is our atonement ( Romans 5:10-11)
  6. Feast of Tabernacles - As we followed the Lord in the wilderness from Egypt to the Promised Land, we are following Christ in these lands of sin to the kingdom. (John 10:27-30) 

Christ and his disciples kept the feast days. As followers of Christ, we should do the same.

1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
