Many Christians who attend the Sunday church fail to understand the prophetic nature of the Feasts of YAHUAH set forth in Leviticus 23. When reading the gospels and the epistles of the Brit Chadasha (the Messianic Writings aka the New Testament), the reader will come accross certain events in the time of MASHIACH (Messiah) and if that person does not have a Scriptural Hebrew worldview or an understanding of the books that precede the New Testament, he will be confused.
I find that the opposite that the church might understand the "spiritual representation" or the prophetic meaning of the feasts, but fail to see the practical needs of keeping the feasts. I just had a long chat online with a person who I have played scrabble with for years. She is a Christian and asked me how was my Thanksgiving. That led to me saying we didn't do Thanksgiving but did cook the traditional foods for our Sabbath meals. oh you keep Jewish feasts? uh no, I keep the feasts of Yahuah. It was a lot of her telling me that the Spirit told her when she sinned and she did it every day but the new covenant...blah...blah... blah. I asked her if she kept Easter this past spring. Yes. Then I asked her why the Holy Spirit had not told her that all the rituals of Easter came from the worship of a fertility goddess named Ishtar?
She said we would take this up later. I said I love u. and she said she did too.
Maybe we will.
Added 11/27 well, I don't think she wants to discuss this any more. We are really long time online friends who chatted for years about everything but our religion and only in the last year did she bring this up to me. I think she wants me to quit "trying to gain my salvation by my works" and just trust the holy spirit to tell me what is sin and then thank Jesus for saving me from it. Which is what understanding I had at five years old. Now at 63, I am not sure that even if I could perfectly on the level she needs ,explain my understanding to her that it would change anything. Am I being a bad watchman by letting it go? Will her "blood" be on my hands? pondering this.
