Now that we have some clarity about Easter Sunday, Easter eggs,Easter bunnies and Easter Dresses, let us discuss what Resurrection Day really is for Christians. It is acknowledging and celebrating the Fulfillment of the Feasts of the Lord. Celebration of Easter is idolotry!
There are SEVEN ANNUAL FEASTS OF THE LORD. These are appointed times with God; Holy convocations. These Seven Biblical Feasts are God’s Feasts, not Jewish Feasts. The Four Annual Feasts celebrated in the Spring have been fulfilled by Jesus. The three remaining feasts celebrated in the Fall will be fulfilled upon His return. The era between these two periods in history is “the Church Age”. See a lunar calendar online for feast dates. This is a basic outline that you can use to study this subject in more detail.
God’s eternal plan from chaos to eternity is ingeniously revealed through the nature and timing of The Seven Annual Feasts of the Lord. See Leviticus 23
Four Feasts – In the Spring
Passover – Pesach
(Jesus was our Passover Lamb)
Passover commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt, as recorded in the book of Exodus. On Passover, Jews also celebrate the birth of the Jewish nation after being freed by God from captivity. Today, the Jewish people not only remember an historic event on Passover, but also celebrate in a broad sense, their freedom as Jews.
The Hebrew word Pesach means “to pass over.” During Passover Jews take part in a meal known as the Seder, which incorporates the retelling of the story of Exodus and God’s deliverance from bondage in Egypt. Each participant of the Passover Seder experiences in a personal way, a national celebration of freedom through God’s intervention and deliverance. Hag HaMatzah or the Feast of Unleavened Bread and Yom HaBikkurim or Firstfruits are both mentioned in Leviticus 23 as separate feasts, however, today Jews celebrate all three feasts as part of the eight-day Passover holiday.
Today, Passover begins on day 15 of the Hebrew month of Nissan (March or April) and continues for 8 days. Originally, Passover began at twilight on the 14th day of Nissan (Leviticus 23:5), and then the next day, day 15, the Feast of Unleavened Bread would begin and continue for seven days (Leviticus 23:6).
