Lord's Feast Days Are Important to Us"
The above link makes the point that there are important reasons
for us as Christians to understand and honor the Feasts of the
Lord. I do not believe we are to observe the Passover with a
Seder meal, etc., but we certainly should be observant at Yom
Teruah for the arrival of the Bridegroom. Jesus instructed His
followers to watch and to be ready.
Reading the entire article in the above link should leave no
doubt that Jesus meant to communicate that His return for the
Bride would be on Rosh Hashanna, the only day that no one knew
when it would occur. He knew, however, that the statement would
not be understood by non-believers since the Holy Spirit must
open one's spiritual eyes to understand spiritual truths as
presented in the Bible. That was one reason for speaking in
parables so that the Pharasees and Saducees would not
The important point is made by the author that the Bible can be
viewed as a book about a marriage contract, the marriage of
Jesus and His Bride The Feasts outline His plan to obtain
a suitable Bride, starting with payment for the sin debt of the
Bride, resurrection to demonstrate His victory over death, His
return to heaven to prepare a place for the Bride, and return at
Rosh Hashanna to take away His Bride with Him. They are
appointments that were rehearsed for many years each year so
that they would not be forgotten.
Let us all do our utmost to live righteously in these last days
before He returns for His Bride, and indeed that we may be
considered worthy to be a part of His Bride. If we are not ready
to be a part of the Bride, then let us pray earnestly that we
will be ready to somehow escape the wrath of God in the Great
Tribulation that will come after the catching away of the Bride.
To do so, we must pray that our faith will increase and that it
will bear some observable fruit in these remaining days, for
faith without works is dead.
