Battle of the Bibles Pt. 3: Feasts and Holidays
Mainstream Christian Holidays are not of YHWH.
Author: Morgan Franklin
I’ve came across many across many different doctrines/dogma within the Christian faith. From pastors preaching in a church, casual conversations with fellow Christians and articles online. The modern day church is pushing Holidays made by men and not of YHWH. Sadly, the new age bibles support this theory. Let’s use the KJV and original Greek text to prove them wrong.
Acts 18:21 (New Age Bibles Contradict KJV)
(KJV) “But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.”
(ESV) “But on taking leave of them he said, “I will return to you if God wills,” and he set sail from Ephesus.”
(NIV) “But as he left, he promised, “I will come back if it is God’s will.” Then he set sail from Ephesus.”
As we see in this verse the new age bibles have removed “I must by all means keep this feast”, which Paul was stating himself. An Apostle sent by Yeshua following the feasts under YHWH’s new covenant. You don’t need any other explanations to follow the biblical feasts after reading this verse. But lets check this in the original Greek text from the Texts Receptus to make sure the KJV is accurate. In this verse has the Greek word “ποιῆσαι” which in English it is translated as “to keep” and before that there is “ἑορτήν” which is translated in English as “feast”. With the whole line in Greek states “πάντως τὴν ἑορτὴν τὴν ἐρχομενην ποιῆσαι” in English is “ by all means keep the coming feast”. From just removing a line of text from the Bible can do so much damage in misleading believers for generations.
1 Corinthians 5:8 (All Bibles Similar)
(KJV) “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.”
(ESV) “Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
(NIV) “Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
Here is more support that Paul kept the biblical feasts in the KJV and new age bibles.
Deuteronomy 4:2 (All Bibles Similar)
(KJV) “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.
(ESV) “You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you.
(NIV) “Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.”
Here is YHWH stating that we should not alter his word. As you can see this commandment clearly hasn’t been followed.
Mark 7:8 (All Bibles Similar)
(KJV) “For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.”
(ESV) “You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.”
(NIV) “You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions."
Here is Yeshua stating to the Pharisees that they haven’t followed YHWH’s commandments and held on to man made traditions. This is exactly what we see in the church today. All the Christian Holidays and the Lord’s day are made up by men and have no biblical support. The the feasts and the Sabbath has been ordained by YHWH and not by man. We need to also remember that the 7th day Sabbath is one of the ten commandments.
Yeshua states in Matthew:17-20 that he has not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it. He also states that if you even break one of his commandments you will be lesser in the kingdom of heaven and if you follow all of them you will be greater in the kingdom of heaven. Don’t get this twisted you are still saved by Grace but we can see that if you follow the law you will be higher in heaven.
Matthew:17-20: 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Regarding Christmas, Jeremiah 10:1-4 shows us that YHWH doesn’t want us to follow this tradition of the heathen which is older then Christ itself. Couldn’t be any clearer that Christians shouldn’t cut down trees and decorate them.
Jeremiah 10:1-4: 1Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
Christmas (Saturnalia) and other mainstream Christian Holidays are pagan and not of YHWH. There is plenty of research exposing these holidays you can easily find information regarding this.
