WHEN YOU READ YOUR BIBLE, from Genesis to Revelation, you will never find Christmas. Here’s another shocker; do you know that God condemns the celebration of Christmas? While most “Christians” celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25, a majority of people are oblivious of the dark pagan root of this holiday. Thankfully, God reveals to us that there will come a time when His real and true feast will be celebrated by the whole World.
What is the Feast of Tabernacles?
The Feast of Tabernacles is one of the feasts of God mentioned in the Bible, specifically in Leviticus 23. Undoubtedly, all of the seven feasts of God will be kept by the whole world when Jesus establishes His Kingdom here on earth.
Now, don’t get me wrong, all of the Feasts of God are important and we need to observe all of them both today and in the future. However, for the purpose of this article, I want to single out the Feast of Tabernacles first.
If not Christmas, then what should we be observing?
The most common reason why people cannot give up observing Christmas, even after when they already know the truth, is that Christmas is the only time they can get together with their families, friends, and relatives. However, if they only know and understand what we do during the Feast of Tabernacles, I AM SURE THEY WILL LOVE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES MORE THAN CHRISTMAS!
What we do in the Feast of Tabernacles?
Imagine Christmas in your mind; it is a time where you are happy, you spend time with your family, no work, no worries, plenty of food, fellowship and fun. Now, multiply that happiness (subtract all the humanly devised traditions from it) to at least SEVEN TIMES and you will get the FEAST OF TABERNACLES!
During the feast of tabernacles, God commanded us to come together and live in temporary dwellings. Within seven days with the Last Great Day as the eight day, we will learn of God’s way of life through the messages of His servants. In addition to this, the Feast of Tabernacles pictures the WONDERFUL WORLD OF TOMMOROW where Jesus Christ will rule here on earth. Thus, we have a foretaste of the promise of abundance, peace, and life during this lifetime.
That’s right: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR JESUS CHRIST’s RETURN because you can develop a good relationship with Him and the Father today by keeping His laws and the Feasts.
Therefore, do not be afraid to let go of Christmas which is never commanded in the Bible. Have faith in God and He will let you experience His love through the authentic Feasts of God.
Why Christmas should be removed?
First and foremost, Christmas is of pagan origin. It is filled with traditions unrelated to Jesus’ birth. Take for example, Santa Claus. Christmas is the only time of the year where it is okay to lie to your children that a jolly bearded man exists and he is being pulled by flying reindeers.
If you really want to know the truth, you can get any encyclopedia and look up the history of Christmas. You will soon discover its pagan root.
Another reason that Christmas should be removed is that it deviate our attention from the wonderful world tomorrow that Jesus will usher here on earth pictured by the Feast of Tabernacles.
Finally, God tells us that we need to worship Him in truth (John 4:24). CHRISTMAS IS FOUNDED IN A LIE. No matter how much you convince yourself that it is the truth, a lie is still a lie.
Did the Bible really tell us about Feast of Tabernacles?
Of course! Here’s one passage.
“And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of ALL THE NATIONS which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the FEAST OF TABERNACLES. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, WHEREWITH THE LORD WILL SMITE THE HEATHEN THAT COME NOT UP TO KEEP THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles” (Zechariah 14:16-19).
I did not just come up with this verse. It’s in your BIBLE! The Prophet Malachi in his vision, tells us that in the day that God establishes His Kingdom here on earth, people will worship Him and keep the FEAST OF TABERNACLES. Blessings are pronounced to those who will keep it while cursing will be for those who don’t keep it.
God is SERIOUS with this commandment that He wants the WHOLE families of the earth to go to Jerusalem and worship Him!
Jesus, keeping the Feast of Tabernacles?
The Bible tells us that we need to follow Jesus’ example. Jesus’ examples include keeping the feast of Tabernacles. Let’s read:
“After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. Now the Jews’ FEAST OF TABERNACLES was at hand… But when his brethren were gone up, THEN WENT HE ALSO UP UNTO THE FEAST, not openly, but as it were in secret (John 7:1-2, 10).
Jesus Christ kept the feast even if it means HIS LIFE. For Jesus, keeping the feast is a matter of life and death! He wants to show us that this feast is so SPECIAL, so IMPORTANT, so CRUCIAL that He is willing to give up His life just to keep it!
Did the apostles kept the Feast?
People argue that the feast of God is only meant for the Israelites. But is this really the case? After all, if this is true, then we should have read a passage in the bible that obviously told us that it is obsolete. Yet, we don’t find any passage about that and in fact we see the apostles keeping the feast instead.
I will not go through so many verses but for this purpose, I just want to quote one verse.
“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” (Act 18:21).
This statement was made more than 30 YEARS AFTER JESUS DIED. If Jesus’ death annulled the feasts, then why are we seeing the apostle Paul still keeping the feast? Clearly, it tells us that we still need to keep the feast.
Christmas or Feast of Tabernacles?
You have a choice. Will you celebrate a holiday or a holy day? Will you celebrate a feast of satan or the Feast of God? Are you willing to just shut your eyes to the truth or will you live by the truth?
Don’t be caught celebrating Christmas when Jesus returns! Keep the Feast of Tabernacles instead which He wants you and me to observe!
You have a choice. God gives you the choice, but you are not free to choose the outcome of your choices. Make the right choice now. Keep the Feast of Tabernacles, keep God’s commandments, keep God’s law!
