Official Statement On The Holy Scriptures;

The ‘Lens’ Through Which All Knowledge Is Understood;


"IF" there exists any such thing as 'The Word of God'; [and much evidence proves such does exist:]

"THEN" by inherent definition - it must be: Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Intrepid, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Eternal and Indubitable NEVER FAILING and ALL CONQUERING!

DEDUCTING from the simple fact - that God equates His Word with Himself:
    "In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, . . ." John 1:1 (and other Scriptures),

'GOD'S WORD' can have no lesser standard than stated above;

"GOD'S WORD MUST" THEREFORE BE: As true in history, archeology, geography, Earth science, medical science, nutrition, gerontology, agriculture, botany, astronomy, physics, chemistry, climatology, government, law, psychology, sociology - and every subject it touches - as in Theology, Divinity and Doctrine:

And "IF IT BE NOT"- true in all subjects mentioned above; and And "IF IT BE NOT" Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Intrepid, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Eternal and Indubitable in EVERY FIELD OF KNOWLEDGE: Whatever else it may be, it cannot be ‘The Incomparable Word’ of the Great Creator God!

God's Calendar:

There are absolute parallels between God's Calendar of His commanded Feasts and their Secondary-Deeper-Spiritual-Meaning fulfillment of Christ. For example the Ancient Jewish Passover of over 3500 years, is now celebrated as "The Lord’s Supper.

Amazingly, they do indicate the Coming of Christ to Earth again as He Promised!



[PAUL-I:] Paul tells us specifically that the New Moon and the Feasts of the Lord are a shadow of things to come." Colossians 2:16-17.

    16 "... in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    >> Paul informs of their great significance as foreshadowing, since Jesus was Crucified as Passover Lamb, Resurrected as First Fruits and the Holt Spirit came ONLY when the Day of Pentecost was fully come . . . (more later)

    >> leading up to the Coming of Christ yet ahead;

[PAUL-II:] Paul’s commitment toward the Holy Days could best be summed up in a quote from Acts 18:21: “I must by all means, keep this coming feast in Jerusalem.”

    We see that Paul was urgent and firm about keeping the Holyday Feasts in the quote below. Since he doesn't tell us which one - and God ordained this non-specificity - there is no other proper conclusion to hold, except; . . .

    . . . to believe that ALL the Feast Days were URGENT to Apostle Paul . . . and he was determined to keep THIS ONE . . . NO MATTER which one it was!

[PAUL-III:] Paul makes it clear that the Great Jewish Passover is to be kept by Christian, Gentile believers, as he commands the Corinthians in I Cor 5:7-8

    '. . . for even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

    v-8 Therefore let us keep the feast, . . ."

    >> We see here Paul has taught the Corinthians about the Holy Feast in detail in the past;

    >> And now simply sends them a simple reminder;

    >> MAKING SURE . . . the emphasis is NOT the literal lamb, and blood applied to the Jewish doorposts in Egypt;

    >> But RATHER that Christ is our Passover Lamb, His blood applied at the Cross!

[PAUL-IV:]We see similar situation concerning Paul and the Holy Feasts while at Philippi:

    ACTS 20:6 "And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

      [1] That Paul never stopped keeping the Feasts,

      [2] That Paul had taught the Philippians about the Feast of Unleavened Bread, so that a simple reference was all that was needed to communicate, with no explanation necessary;

      [3] That those who led at Philippi continued to keep to keep the feast;

      [4] That Paul remained there to celebrate the Unleavened Bread Holyday with the Philippians, rather than commemorate it by himself as he traveled;

    Furthermore, it would be very strange indeed, . . . if Paul had taught the Feasts at Philippi, but not at Thessalonica, and Berea just up and down the road a ways . . .

[PAUL-V:] Paul also gives a simple and direct command regarding keeping the Feasts to the Corinthians: “Let us keep the feast . . ." [of (1 Corinthians 5:8).

    Again, Paul is clear, certain and direct, and yet his teaching is very simply. Had he not ALREADY taught them more in depth they would not had had any idea what he was talking about! (IF you doubt, mention any feast day to your unchurched neighbor!!!)


[PAUL-VI:] Here we see Paul making another statement of firmness and urgency:

    Acts 20:16 "For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.

      >> Paul's urgency cannot be denied

      >> Paul's degree of importance cannot be denied!

[PAUL-VII:] We see here concerning Paul and the Holy Feasts four facts:

    "I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost. For a great and effective door has opened to me" (1 Corinthians 16:8-9).

      [1] That Paul never stopped keeping the Feasts,

      [2] That Paul had taught the Corinthians about the Feast of Pentecost, so that a simple reference was all that was needed to communicate, with no explanation necessary;

      [3] That those who led at Ephesus had taught them to keep to keep the feast,

      [4] That Paul was going to celebrate Pentecost with Christians at Ephesus;

    This shows that not only did the Church in Ephesus keep the Feast of Pentecost, it was in Ephesus that a great door to proclaim the Gospel was opened for Paul and the church. It was from Ephesus that Paul and the early church were able to reach all of Asia Minor:

[PAUL-VIII:] Here Paul here gives a teaching for regarding Holy Feasts properly, with the Christian emphasis, in their fulfilled version: not just "date-keeping" in I Cor 5:7-8

    "Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened . . . Let us keep the feast . . ." [of Unleavened Bread], not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth!” (1 Corinthians 5:8).

[PAUL-IX:] Here Paul makes reference to keeping the Holy Day of Atonement;

In the KJV this is called The Fast" - its common names for well over 1,000 years, because it was the ONLY Holy day requiring a complete Fast.

    Acts 27:8-9 "...it, came unto a place which is called The Fair Havens; nigh whereunto was the city of Lasea.

    9 Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because The Fast was now already past, Paul admonished them,

The Amplified Bible reads:

    8 And coasting along it with difficulty, we arrived at a place called Fair Havens, near which is located the town of Lasea.

    9 But as [the season was well advanced, for] much time had been lost and navigation was already dangerous, for the time for the Fast [the Day of Atonement, about the beginning of October] had already gone by, Paul warned and advised them,

Again, Paul's terse statement has important information;

    >> Paul assumes that his readers will know this Holy Day by it's common name:"The Fast!"

    >> Paul assumes Gentile Christians have studied this Holy Day and will know what he is referring to by a simple statement.

    >> In fact, Paul uses the date of this Holy Day, to tell Gentile readers what time of the year it was (Late Harvest) and too late for safe sailing.

    >> Sadly, most modern Christians, including ministers and scholars, would not know what time of year it was by the Holy day of Atonement!

Paul, however, as we have seen, kept the feasts and taught them to all of his Churches well, so he could make simple references, and communicate easily!


[PAUL-X:] This teaching of Paul is usually misunderstood, with people NOT being aware of Paul's great emphases on keeping the Holy Feasts otherwise.

We are told that the New Moon and the Feasts of the Lord are a shadow of things to come in Colossians 2:16-17.

    16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

God's Ordained Feast-Holy days always were, and continue to be, living symbols of the stages of God’s Plan of Salvation for all humanity. Those events are now in progress, and true Christians are the manifestation of it.

AMAZINGLY . . . in the Scripture above, most modern theologians interpret this to mean that no one is to keep, celebrate, preach-teach, or give any heed to these outdated thousand-year-old feasts, . . .

. . . but the intention of this teaching is the EXACT OPPOSITE!

    >> Paul is declaring these Holyday Feasts, with the New Moon and Sabbath, ARE still true and relevant!

    >> Paul is teaching Gentiles that these Holyday Feasts, with the New Moon and Sabbath, are SHADOWS of things yet to come!

    >> Paul is teaching Gentiles that ONLY by understanding, celebrating and heeding these Holyday-Feasts as God commanded can they understand what God is doing - has done - and will do - are FORESHADOWED by these Holyday Feasts!

    >> Paul summarizes this teaching be revealing that even though God's Calendar was given to ancient Israel, it is ALL ABOUT THE BODY OF CHRIST!


    >> Paul is declaring THEREFORE . . .

      ** KNOW God's Calendar of Holyday Feasts,

      ** And do them PROPERLY as Commanded,

      ** So that no one CAN criticize of find fault with you in this matter!

    >> However, just as the physical Circumcision (in the early part of Colossians 2) foreshadowed circumcision of the heart - the real meaning thereof;

    >> And just as the physical Baptism (in the early part of Colossians 2) foreshadowed death and burial of the old man - the real meaning thereof;

    >> And just as the physical rising from Baptism (in the early part of Colossians 2) foreshadowed the resurrection of the new man - the real meaning thereof;

    >> SO LET THE physical Feasts Paul taught on, NOT be the main thing - judging and being judged - but realizing they foreshadow things to come, the real meaning thereof is the Body of Christ: His Church!

Basic Feast Days: . . .

    >> Christ's Birth as 'Light of the World', as far as is known, exactly on: 'Feast of Lights!'

    >> Christ's Deliverance from Herod's slaughter, most likely exactly on (or as close as is known, as Scripture does not say when Joseph, Mary and Jesus fled into Egypt: 'Feast of Purim', celebrating Israel's deliverance in days of Esther!

    >> Christ's offering as 'Paschal Lamb', exactly on: 'Feast of Passover';

    >> Christ's Separation from God after God turned His back on Christ -("My God! My God! Why hast thou forsaken me?") , in Hell for three days & nights, 'tasting death for every man - (death the wages of sin', Rom 6:23) - and removing the eternal penalty of sin exactly on: Feast of Unleavened Bread (leaven type of sin);

    >> Christ's 'Resurrection', exactly on: 'Feast of First Fruits (Jesus is said by Paul to be the First Fruits of them that Slept!).

    >> Coming of 'Holy Spirit', exactly on: 'Pentecost!'


    >> NEXT on God's Calendar is The 'Feast of Trumpets', with a traditional LAST TRUMPET BLAST - called the 'Blast of Awakening' - having 'an unknown day and hour!'

Paul said Jesus is coming to Earth again at the LAST TRUMPET! Are there clues to be learned from the Feast Days?

Amazingly, that of all these Feast-Holy Days, the only one for which the hour and day are not known is Yom Teruah when"The Last Trump" sounds!

    “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed!

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

    (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)


    "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with The Trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

    (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17)

Why was the LAST TRUMPET blown at an uncertain time for centuries?

The Feast of Trumpets - as well as the Monthly Celebration of the New Moon - happens on the “New Moon”, which is 29.5 days after the last one, meaning it might occur on the 29th or 30th day, and nobody knows for sure which it will be.

The New Moon - is the OPPOSITE in Bible days of today's scheme. Today's New Moon is when Moon cannot be seen, as it is in the center period of the 7-8 days the Moon is not seen, when Earth is BETWEEN Sun and Moon and there's no reflection.

In Bible days (in all cultures for many millennia) all cultures determined the New Moon was at it's New Appearing, after having not been seen for 7-8 days. This first sighting was always the TINIEST of slivers. It could be blocked by cloud cover.

It could not automatically be counted on to appear 30 days after the last New Moon sighting, as Moon has much variation in its orbits. That's why the Lunar Eclipses of Sun are all over the world over many decades.

    >> Moon has 'perturbations', apogees and perigees, and orbits in a vacillating ovular pattern;

    >> If Moon orbited with exact precision;

    >> Its Eclipses would always be in the same place!

New Moon was sanctified when two witnesses see the new moon and attest to it before the Sanhedrin in the Temple.

On the 30th of each month, the members of the High Court assembled in a courtyard in Jerusalem, where they waited to receive the testimony of two reliable witnesses. They then sanctified the new moon.

The new moon is very difficult to see on the first day because it can be seen only about sunset, close to the sun, when the sun is traveling north. So, looking for a very slim faint crescent moon, which is very close to the sun, is a very difficult thing to do. If the moon’s crescent was not seen on the 30th day, the new moon was automatically celebrated on the 31st day.

This sanctification could happen during either of two days, depending on when the witnesses come. Since no one knew when the witnesses would come, cloud cover, the Moon's orbital variations, etc., no one - not one person in the world - knew when the Feast of Trumpets would start.

For this reason, Yom Teruah is always celebrated for two days.

These two days are celebrated as though it is just one long day of forty-eight hours. The reason that it is celebrated for two days is because if they waited to start the celebration until after the new moon had been sanctified, they would have missed half the celebration because the new moon can only be sanctified during daylight hours.


Christ declared that no man could know not the day or the hour (Matthew 24:32-36) . . . yet Paul said that day would NOT take the Children of Light by surprise, that it would NOT come upon them unawares! Thus we may know the season!

Yom Teruah, or the Feast of Trumpets, is the only feast that we do not know the day in which to keep it. Therefore, we have to be on the alert and watch for it.

Teruah means “an awakening blast”. A theme associated with Rosh.

HaShanah is the theme “to awake”. Teruah is also translated as “shout”.

The book of Isaiah, chapter 12, puts the shouting in the context of the thousand-year reign of Jesus. The Messianic era and shout is mentioned in Isaiah 44:23 and Zephaniah 3:14. The first coming of Christ is associated with a shout in Zechariah 9:9. The ultimate shout is the Rapture in First Thessalonians 4:16-17.

Whether it is by the blast of a shofar or the force of a supernatural shout, God’s goal is to awaken us. “...Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.” – Ephesians 5:14.

The book of Ephesians has many references to Rosh HaShanah and the high Holy Days. For example, in Ephesians 4:30, being sealed unto the day of redemption refers to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. God gave this festival to teach us that we will be judged on Rosh HaShanah and will be sealed unto the closing of the gates on Yom Kippur.

The theme of awakening from sleep is used throughout the Bible. It is found in John 11:11, Romans 13:11, Daniel 12:1-2 and Psalm 78:65.

The shofar was also blown at the temple to begin the Sabbath each week.
