When did GOD change his Mind about Holy Days?

WHEN exactly did Father God abolish or revoke the Feasts commanded unto the Lord?

The whole panoply of Jewish Holy Days and Observances?


HE didn't. Somewhere the Church did. I'm not talking about a Sabbath day observance question. But, when did the Feast of Tabernacles become passe? It was to be a feast unto the Lord and was to go on until Jesus returns. Many believe Jesus was BORN on the last day of the feast of Tabernacles. And many believe he will RETURN during Feast of Tabernacles. AND it was on the Feast of Tabernacles that he declared Himself to be the Living Water.

So it's no wonder that God says in Leviticus 23:41
You shall thus celebrate it as a feast to the LORD for seven days in the year. It shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month.
And we just abandoned the whole thing like God was just kidding about this.

When was the cleansing of the temple (Hanukkah) abolished, when did we decide we no longer needed to practice the Passover? Or change our calender to some pagan or Roman Church cycle?

I think we need to ask ourselves these things. I was stirred this weekend to do just that.

The feasts have a revelatory function for today's believer. But to use them as instruments of worship is superflous. I'm not flying to Jerusalem to keep some of the feasts, which the letter of the law requires.
Colossian 2:16-17 "Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ."
We are complete in Christ alone.
