Do we have to observe the Holy Days?

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by Juk, Apr 12, 2015.

  1. I was reading about how we have to obey the Sabbath rule and observe the Holy Days. But this contradicts this Scripture:

    Romans 14:5-6 KJV
    One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike . Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. [6] He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it . He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

    As well as others that say that we are not under the law anymore. Is there a command in the New Testament telling us to observe the Holy Days? What do you guys think? I know that the Word of God is the final authority, and I believe that the answer is no.

  2. People like to obey rules to feel right with God. But that scripture you posted says it all. Neither Sabbath days or festivals were not what Paul or Christ was concerned about.
    Francis Drake, Cturtle and Juk says Amen and like this.
  3. I agree. Once the law was done away with, now if one wants to make everyday holy...then so be it. God just wants you to spend time with Him every day. And make Him your everything. Stick with the verse in the new living says you should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable. Those who worship the Lord on a special day, do it to honor Him.

    Colossians 3:17 kjv says "whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to GOD and the Father by Him.

    2 Timothy 2:4 niv says "No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather does everything to please his commanding officer. So if you think of God as your commanding officer, you will do everything that you can to make Him happy. And as you seek Him and His ways first....all the things that you need will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33)

    blessings little man! God is proud of you and is smiling down from heaven on you!

  4. The sabbath was made for man not man for the sabbath. Mark 2:27

  5. I think some of the Holy days are celebrated in full or in absence between different denominations.
    A non denomination Christian at Easter for example may say a few prayers without having a big celebration.

  6. as I see it, in reading those verses: to observe or not to observe is not the critical point.

    The critical point to consider is: they both give thanks to God, thus, let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

  7. Yeah, that's what I thought. That we should not only praise and worship God in the Holy Days but everyday.

  8. One thing though... I know that a lot of times, God does not respond quicklyor instantly. This is why I find it hard to ask God to help me find the rights things to say in a conversation. But I just got an idea. I can ask Him that in the morning, before the day starts!
  9. Colossians 2:16-17 (KJV)
    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]: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body [is] of Christ. ​

    We keep all the law all day, every day.

    Galatians 5:22-26 (KJV)
    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. ​

  10. You would be correct Juk. Legalism demand that we must do something when the truth is we are children of God by grace through faith. We do not have to follow days to prove our relationship with Christ as we have Christ!!!

  11. Juk...........Christ in you gives you all that you need to say and do the right thing all day long. Trust Him in what you say, do and think and He will never let you down my brother!.

  12. As you get up every morning you can consecrate your entire day to Him, and He will guide you. You can ask Him right at the very moment you need Him, also. He says that He will fill our mouths with the right things.

    Psalm 81:10
    For it was I, the Lord your God,
    who rescued you from the land of Egypt.
    Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it with good things.

  13. What does it mean to concentrate my whole day to Him?
  14. Thank you. That is going to take quite some time to get used to for me. But I believe that it is necessary.
  15. I believe that everyday should be made a holy day for God.

  16. You simply remind yourself to Jesus Christ that He is your Lord and you will devote your day to Him for His purposes.

  18. OK. Lets try again.........Upon Christ's return, we will once again be subject to the Feasts as stated in Zech.
  19. Sounds great.
  20. What are His purposes?
