Preaching the Gospel, Preparing a People
Greetings Keith, I share your love of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that's why it is so important we remember His words, "If you love me, you will keep my commandments."
God warned us, "...do not inquire about their gods, asking, “How do these nations serve their gods? I will do likewise. You must not worship the LORD your God in this way... See that you do everything I command you; do not add to it or subtract from it."
Christ condemned the traditions of men with the words of the prophet Isaiah, "In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."
If you are wondering how such a deception is possible? Christ warned, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
Since you love God, you should celebrate the Holy Days commanded in the Bible! Those are the days Christ kept and how He worshipped God. When Christ returns bible prophecy reveals, all nations will keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
It also warns before that happens the wicked will fight against Him.
Search your Bible! May your day be blessed.
A commendably well written and informative article. It is such a blessing from God to have so inspired both the writer and the readers. Thank you!
I did notice one seemingly miss-cited verse.
"The Passover is fulfilled in Jesus’ death and our acceptance of His sacrifice for us upon repentance and rejecting our sinful life—yet not completely fulfilled. For when Jesus observed the Passover that night before He died, He told His disciples, “I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God” (Luke 16:14-16, emphasis added). The same is true of the wine (verse 18)."
Perhaps Luke 22 were the intended verses?
