So we, being many, are one body in Christ,
and every one members one of another.
A Biblical High Holy Day (holiday) known as the Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:34), the Feast of Booths (Nehemiah 8:14) or the Feast of Ingathering (Exodus 23:16) begins September 30, 2012 at evening. When our forefathers kept it in the Old Testament, the feast commemorated the time we were made to dwell in booths while we wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. A pillar of fire led us by night and a cloud led us during the day unto the promised land. Now in Christ, we understand that it was Christ that we followed in the wilderness. Just as Christ led us in the past, he is leading us to the kingdom of heaven now if we choose to follow him. This is a true Holy Day for followers of Christ that focuses on repentance and change. If your church is not celebrating this day that has everything to do with Christ and is based in the Bible, you should ask your pastor/ minister why. People celebrate Christmas, Easter and other such days which have nothing to do with the Bible or Christ. A major part of repentance is turning away from those wicked idolatrous celebrations and hasting to keep the Holy Days that are actually found in the Bible.
Exodus 13:21-22 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: (22) He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.
1 Corinthians 10:1-6 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; (2) And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; (3) And did all eat the same spiritual meat; (4) And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. (5) But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. (6) Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
Ezekiel 20:33-38 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you: (34) And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. (35) And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face. (36) Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD. (37) And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: (38) And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
Those that deny that Christians should keep this Holy Day do it for one reason and the following scripture explains it.
Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
