We as christians do celebrate most of the feasts even if we are not away of it,
1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
1 Corinthians 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.
So eher we have the celebration of feat of unleaven bread and passover
Once you accept christ, it is a celebration of passover, the removal of sin in yourlife is the celebration fo feast of unleavened bread.
The church did not replace israel, the church IS israel.

The Church is Israel.

the church is the called out ones PER translation from Greek ONLY The Father in Heaven calls those to HIMSELF ....

Our Jesus did not fail in his mission. Not possible except to those who don't understand the mission....yet.
Matt 10:6, Matt 15:24 Matthew 15:24
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Confirm the "eklesia" Jer 31:31, Heb 8:8 ...New Covenant...
Many are never made aware....the lost sheep are the other houses of Israel...who lost her married name Israel....and would be called by a new name.

The feasts of the Old Testament have been fulfilled.

The Church is Israel.
******

the church is the called out ones PER translation from Greek ONLY The Father in Heaven calls those to HIMSELF ...unlike religious christianity which BRANDS those born to people within its brand to itself

Israel is simply a nation

the feasts have been fulfilled?

where?

seeing Christ has not returned and the earth is RULED by Satan AND 1/3 or prophecy has not happened YET this is impossible by Holy Scripture

the feasts are Gods PLAN for mankind those who observe Gods Holy Days understand the awesome plan God has for mankind - truly precious eternal life will be

The Church is Israel.

The modern state of Israel is the last great push of European colonialism.

They have no peace. The modern state of Israel...is just a name. There are many more times, jewish/claiming peoples in the USA and Britian than in the so called country of Israel. Four times more in America alone.
It is remarkable that the people who have all the attributes/strengths/blessings, Messiah and GOD of ancient Israel....pushed for Anti-Christ Judahite(maybe) brothers to have their own nation.
All marks of both sides are discovered in the Old Testament.
Psalm 29:11
The LORD will give strength unto his people, the LORD will bless his people with peace.

cluny, I see your point but Jesus celebrated the Passover and He is our example.

His celebrating it is not the shadow and type, HE WAS IT. Jesus was NOT the shadow and not the type, HE WAS THE ACTUAL PASSOVER LAMB.

So if Jesus was and is our example in everything He did while on the earth, are we to copy him on everything EXCEPT celebrating Passover? Because He did indeed celebrate it. HE WAS IT, he wasn't a type and shadow of it, HE WAS THE PASSOVER LAMB.

Also, how do you associate Passover being under the law?
---Donna5535 on 6/15/10


\\We should celebrate Passover because Jesus became the Passover lamb. We should celebrate Pentecost,\\

As a matter of fact, traditionally Christians have ALWAYS celebrated Passover as the Resurrection of Christ and Pentecost as the Descent of the Holy Spirit.

We celebrate their FULFILLMENT, not the shadow and type.

As for the rest, as St. Paul said, "Having begun by grace, you think to be perfected by law?"

I will say that I disagree with you simply because the promises God made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and King David were eternal promises to a physical lineage of Abraham. While it has allusions to the church, you will find no Scripture to support the statement that "The church is Israel." ---tommy3007 on 6/14/10

Well if you believe GOD fulfills all...and you do by your speech above....the Church/Christian are Israel...who doesn't know she is Israel.
All the prophets witness it. Heb 8:10 identify's a foundational sign of it.

bill and cluny, if you heard Robert Heindrich's teaching on Gentiles celebrating the Jewish feasts, you'd change your point of view.

We are Gentiles who have been grafted into God's plan of salvation. Jesus said to the women at the well, Salvation is from the Jews. Just because the Jews don't believe Jesus is the Messiah, doesn't mean we don't participate in God's holidays which the world calls the Jewish Holidays.

We should celebrate Passover because Jesus became the Passover lamb. We should celebrate Pentecost, Rosh Hannah and Yom Kippur. Christmas and non-Jewish Holidays are pagan holidays which should not be celebrated by true believers in Christ Jesus.
---Donna5535 on 6/14/10


Pentecost is a particularly special time in Israel and a wonderful time to visit. As the season for harvesting wheat in ancient and modern Israel, Pentecost is a great opportunity to take the time to consider the one of the most basic building blocks of nutrition in history: bread As a Christian, I do support Israel, because they are originally "God's Chosen People" before we as Gentiles became God's people.
---Kimbe7395 on 6/14/10




Exactly my point, Bill_bila5659 .
---Cluny on 6/14/10


The Jewish feast days do not apply to the Body of Christ, But as paul say in Rom 15:4 it is for our learning. Some church goers today try to practice the feast days, for various reasons, Some think the BoC has replaced Israel, but scripture doesn't back that up.
---michael_e on 6/14/10


I would say that Jewish eyes have Jews not knowing who Jesus is, so I would not want to understand the Bible with its feasts, through Jewish eyes of their perspective. Christ's meaning of the feasts is better than Jews can now understand the feasts. We support Israel to obey their Messiah, but they don't. And the real Israel, anyway, is the Body of Jesus, now, not just flesh and blood Jews:

"For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh, but he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter, whose praise is not from men but from God." (Romans 2:28-29)

cluny, I am not going to get into any lengthy debate over your position, but, I will say that I disagree with you simply because the promises God made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and King David were eternal promises to a physical lineage of Abraham. While it has allusions to the church, you will find no Scripture to support the statement that "The church is Israel." The church is the church, and Israel is still Israel, even though the present day nation doesn't have much going for it in the terms of spiritual function, it will one day be restored to the glory that God put into it before.

I really believe that we are to understand the feasts in regards to their fulfillment in Christ, not view them through the eyes of a natural nation. However, studying the ways they celebrated the feasts brings a great deal of light on how Jesus fulfilled them.
