Straight Talk From The Bible


The Great Pyramid

There is hardly a starting place with so much to say. You'll really have to get some books on the subject.

As outlined in Isaiah, the pyramid was meant by God as a witness to Himself. The Pyramid meant little more than a religious object to the people down through the centuries. They couldn't begin to find the hidden numbers in the construction. They couldn't appreciate the fine workmanship. The joints between the 20-70-ton blocks of stone is a 50th of an inch! Try making fifty pencil lines on a paper inside an inch. In 820 AD an Arab trying to break in for imagined treasure couldn't even find the door; even though he was only 28 feet away from it.

Modern measuring instruments, on the other hand, are able to determine the numbers in the Pyramid. And by doing this we can VERY easily conclude that the Egyptians didn't build it. Someone WAY smarter than they, some one with supernatural abilities, did. We can levitate a train, couldn't angel-types levitate those big stones? Couldn't they have a way to make a cut that wasn't out of true by more than .001" over 7 feet? I don't think the Egyptians had laser technology, do you? The intricacies of the Pyramid(GP) are things that only a scientific age could uncover or appreciate.

For those who scoff at God intending that only WE were to know this "Amazing" stuff , here's an example. There is a slight indentation in the sides of the GP. There are three ways to measure the distance from corner to corner, because the indentation doesn't go straight into a point. It goes in, but cuts across to the other line coming in from the other corner. So the indent has the shape of a very flat triangle, with the top snipped off.

Indent diagram 
 Now we can measure:
  • (1) straight from one corner to the other, C to B
  • (2) we can measure in to the "bend" in the line, then across to the other line and thence to the other corner, C to H to G to B
  • (3) we can measure from one corner in to the imaginary point of the triangle and then out to the other corner. C to I to B


{{{{{ IMPORTANT NOTE }}}}}


The pyramid measurements are in inches or cubits. The pyramid inches are .0011 bigger than our inch, while the cubits are the Sacred Cubit that is 25 of those Pyramid inches. And the only three places in the world to find that inch is England, the United States, and the Great Pyramid (it's also in the Bible and Stonehenge).

Back to the indent in the sides of the GP. Before we find out what those three measurements are, let's ask, "How far into celestial science were the Egyptians?" Did they know how long the year was? I'm sure they did. How were they ABLE to know how long the year was?

They could have measured the return of the earth to a fixed point in relation to the sun, and did.

They could have done the same for their Dog Star, Sirius, and did. But could they have had a way to measure the distance TO the sun at any given time of the year? Wasn't that beyond their capabilities? Ask yourself if you, with only the tools the Egyptians must have had, could figure out the distance to the sun. Stone wall, right?

Now the measurements:

  • (1) Straight from corner to corner is, in cubits, 365.242 Sacred Cubits; the days in the solar year, EXACTLY.
  • (2) From corner across the indentation to corner is 365.256 Cubits; the days in the sidereal year.
  • (3) From corner to the imaginary point and back out to the other corner is 365.259 Cubits; the number of days it takes earth to return the perihelion; the anomalistic year.

Selah! These three year measurements are built into the curvature of the sides of the GP!

Remember, this indent information is for those who say the GP isn't meant for today's world.

Most sources say the GP was built in about 2500BC. I think it was before that, but even the wrong date makes the point. The GP was around for some 3500 years before the local people started to dismantle it. Over the years they have removed all but a few of the casing stones, to be used in various building projects. As it was built, it was covered with polished white limestone casings. Incidentally, the shadow from the sun at that particular latitude marked the equinoxes and solstices. It's said that you could see it all the way from Palestine. A 40 story white diamond!

Those casing stone sides were FLAT!


And it wasn't until someone took an aerial photo that the indentations were observed. Do you see? Those indentations were covered up for 3500 years. Why make them in the first place, and second, after such a feat, why cover them up? To save them for US to find! A sign and witness to God's existence and His plan for, SPECIFICALLY, us.

As a capper, I must tell you that when a circle is constructed on the curvature of the indentation, the circumference will be the same as the circumference of the earth at the equator!

The last thing to say about the sides is that when you multiply the number of cubits on one side by four (sides), and change that number to Pyramid inches, you get 36524.2! The Great Pyramid is a model of Christ's kingdom, earth.

So now that God has our wonder at this scientific marvel, He shows us the history of His people; all those Bible folks from Adam to the characters in the New Testament. And remember that those people became a world population group; over a billion of them today. God promised Abraham that, didn't He? So, many things that are dated in the GP are focused on those Biblical people, but spill over onto the rest of the world. When a billion people go to war, many other folks are affected.

This is hard to relate briefly, so you need to do your own research, As it is written: It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.~Proverbs 25:2
 
There is ONE genuine mark in the whole GP. There are a few forgeries in some upper cavities. The only mark in the GP is a line that is scored, very finely chiseled, in the descending passage. It can't be confused with the joints of the building blocks themselves because those joints are perpendicular to the ground, while the Scored Lines are perpendicular to the passage itself. These lines are the benchmark for the dating system of the inner passages. ONLY in the year 2141 BC did the then north star, Alpha Draconis, shine all the way down to the bottom of the descending passage; more than 300 feet. In that same year those lines pointed right to Alcyone in the Pleiades. This alignment is only possible every 26,000 years. 
 
Unfortunately, some have pinned that 2141 BC date on the building of the Pyramid. So by finding the year this alignment occurred, we have a starting point for dating. We find dates by measuring one inch for a year. When we hit an irregularity in a passage, a turn, a step, an opening, we can take a measurement.

Measuring down the descending passage (Man under the influence of Satan), we hit the first ascending passage at 1453 BC. At this point in history God's people were freed from that downward journey. This date is said to be the date of the Exodus. Farther down the passage, we'll hit a leveling out that leads to the Pit. On the way there, we'll pass the 1521 date of the Reformation, and a six by six foot "upside down" room whose roof is perturbed; not smooth like everywhere else. The dates of this "room" are 1767 to 1845, when no less than nine revolutions blew the lid off the world.

Backing up the downward passage 28 feet from the leveling, there is a tight little hole called the Well Shaft cut into the wall. This shaft turns up and angles over 'till it literally blasts it's way into what's called the Grand Gallery. But that's ahead of the story. We'll have to go back up to the first Ascending passage. There we'll find that there is no access to the passage because there are three granite plugs built  (not inserted) into the bottom end of the passage. Al Mamoun, the Arab, in 820 AD hacked his way around the plugs, but the message is clear.

"If you want to get up to the High Places, you can only get there via the Well Shaft."

When we get around those plugs, we're in a very low passage. We look like beasts bent under a burden as we go up. It's a hard Way. It's the Way under the Law.

But thankfully, we finally come out into the Grand Gallery, a high chamber; seven tiers and 28 feet up. The next step is a small one down as we see another low passage before us. This leads horizontally into the Queen's Chamber. Since we passed a line at the beginning of this high passage, let's see if the date of this line is significant. The Grand Gallery starts at 33 AD,  and lo and behold, the Well Shaft is right there as adequate witness to the burden of Law being lifted by Christ.

Note: I believe the correct year is 30 AD because Jesus was born in September 2 BC. That would make him 33 years old at Passover 30 AD. The Biblical month of Abib/Nisan corresponds to March/April and runs from March 20 to April 19. Passover is ALWAYS observed on the evening of Abib 14 which is April 3. Passover never moves from that date like the lunar calendar does. It is an annual memorial to “proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.” ~1 Corinthians 11:23-29

Now, a triangle is formed by extending the floor line of the Queen's chamber so it hits the first upward passage. It does this back down the passage a little way, but only as far as 2 BC when Jesus was born. And the passage to the QC is elevated 20 inches above the floor of the QC. When we run THAT line out to the upward passages it makes that little step down at the beginning of the Grand Gallery. It forms a little triangle which has dates of 46 to 60-some AD. Some say that this is Paul's ministry.

At the top of the Grand Gallery is the Great Step, 35 inches up. The passage levels out and changes to granite; so we must change to one inch per MONTH in our measurements; something Adam Rutherford failed to do. He lost credibility because he predicted the End of the World in 1979. After the Great Step there is a low place into a "map" room, followed by another low section which opens into the King's Chamber. The first depressed place starts at 1914 and ends at 1918, when God's Battle Axe (Jer 51) had to stop world tyranny yet again. The Israelites were MEANT to be the World's Policemen. The Israelites have been responsible for putting down all the world's great tyrants, Constantine over the oppression of the Roman Empire, the Allies over Hitler and Communism. In this "map" room we find a small boss that is in relief on a slab. The boss is raised exactly one Pyramid inch from the surface of the slab. It is shaped like a horseshoe and is 25 pyramid inches around the outside. This is what clarifies the measuring system. The beginning of the next low place before the King's Chamber has the date of the Great Depression 1929; which effected the world, not just the US. The KC begins at 1936.

You'll want to get these books. But keep in mind that all the material in any one Pyramid book can't be trusted. Get "Great Pyramid Decoded" by E. Raymond Capt, from Artisan Sales, Hoffman Printing Co., PO Box 1529, Muskogee, OK 74402. Capt has a larger "Study in Pyramidology" , but the "Decoded" is a good introduction. You will like reading Joseph A. Seiss "The Great Pyramid: A Miracle in Stone." He wrote this book in 1877. My copy came from a used book store, but was printed by Steinerbooks of Multimedia Publishing Corp, Blauvelt, NY 10913 (1976). Hope you can find a copy. A Giant volume by D.Davidson, 1921 was for many years the Standard, you may only find one of these in a big library, but go there, its worth it. It's titled 'The Great Pyramid It's Divine Message', and was published in 1946 by Williams and Norgate, Ltd., 36 Great Russell Street, W.C.1(London). Later on you may want to get Adam Rutherford's five volume set; which has NOW become the standard. And yet these men all have made serious errors which were enough to discredit them in the eyes of so many as to put the dating and the God-connection in disrepute. My father, the old Baptist deacon, knee-jerked, "Tool of the Devil" before listening to ONE piece of evidence. The Devil is very good at covering God's tracks. You can get a wealth of information on many subjects like this from The Association of the Covenant People, PO Box 1478, Ferndale, WA 98248. Lastly, you might want to find out about Gematria by Bonnie Gaunt.





Here's a drawing of the first ascending passage as it reaches the Grand Gallery. Notice the inclusion of Christ's baptism in 29 AD.





It's very interesting that the Egyptians' description of the passages of the Great Pyramid closely parallels the symbolism in the Biblical interpretation of the passages.

Thanksgiving

Image result for Thanksgiving images

Blessed is the nation whose God is YAHWEH, and the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.~Psalm 33:12

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. ~Psalm 100:4

YAHWEH has brought us to this place and has given us this land, “a land flowing with milk and honey” (physical and spiritual blessings) ~ Deuteronomy 26:9

And the Lord spoke to Moses, “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel.

Say to them:


 “The LORD bless you and keep you;
 The LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”


“So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.” ~Numbers 6:22-27

As Christian/Israel, His own inheritance, (and that is what we are!) we have much for which to be thankful. 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!  ~ 1 John 3:1

Snow White



A Biblical Allusion: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs



download

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is known as Walt Disney’s first animated princess. (1937) But, is there a deeper meaning behind it? (Warning Spoiler Alert)

SnowWhite6

The story of Snow White is one that is very well known. Being one of the oldest Disney characters, she is a household name. But, just in case you are not familiar, here is a quick brief: Snow White is a fourteen year old girl who is basically orphaned. Her father remarried and then passed away. Snow White is stuck with her stepmother, who is evil and then Snow White runs way, lives with seven men, gets tricked into eating a poison apple, dies, and is brought back to life by a true love kiss. Wow, crazy story, right? But, Disney and The Grimm Fairy tales are not solely responsible for this production. The Bible plays a huge role in the making of this film.

snow_white_23

How could the Bible possibly influence a Disney Master piece?

“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.” Genesis 3:6
Snow White can be seen as Eve, the evil queen as Satan, the forbidden fruit as an apple, The Seven Dwarfs as clergymen and Prince Charming as Jesus.

eve_apple download (1)

Snow White and Eve do share some common characteristics. Snow White is a young naive girl. Even though we are not sure of the exact age of Eve, we can see that she is also naive. They are both easily gullible. Eve knew better than to take the fruit from the serpent, but she did anyway. I guess that is what started the “no talking to strangers rule”. By taking the fruit, she changed the world she lived in as she knew it. Snow White on the other hand, does a act in the movie by Walt Disney. Snow White takes the cursed fruit from a very suspicious, and ugly, witch. Knowing it was against her better judgment, she bit into it and her world changed. They both let their carelessness get the best of them. The act that they did caused them their lives in one way or another.

images the-serpent-deceived-me-arm-apple-christian-wallpaper-hd_1920x1200


The evil queen, who does not have a name, can be seen as Satan/serpent. We know from reading Genesis that Satan is jealous and conniving. He will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants. Satan is the antagonist of all antagonists. If you see a villain, he will more than likely have a Satan quality. Well, Disney wanted to make sure that they put in as many hidden qualities as possible. The evil queen, who is also known as Snow White’s stepmother, carries many Satan like qualities. She is evil (obviously), vain, and persistent. The evil queen has a mirror that feeds her vanity. The Mirror tells her religiously that she is “the fairest of them all”. Until Snow White, that is. Satan is banished from Heaven for a few of the qualities the queen has. We know Satan sees himself as the mightiest of them all, but if he is so confident, then why did he feel so inferior? The same question can apply to the queen. They both present a naive girl a piece of poisoned fruit. Even though their overall motives may vary, they still have some similar qualities.

apple1

The symbol of the “forbidden fruit” has adapted the look of an apple, so it is no secret why Disney chose an apple to kill Snow White. The apple is symbolic in itself. It is almost engraved in our minds that Satan gave Eve an apple. This piece of "fruit" caused a dramatic change. In the Garden of Eden, it brought sin to man. In Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, it brought death. They both bring a form of evil that can only be saved by a higher power. The destruction that the fruit brings is unlike any other. How can something so small bring such destruction? Eve and Snow White do not help the female race out in trying to defend themselves. If anything, they make women look dumb. But, that's alright, we learn a great moral lesson out of this story, right?…

cp_FWB_SnowWhite_20120926

The Seven Dwarfs, Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey can be seen as Snow White's  confused clergymen. Even though this is not a direct reference to Genesis like the other comparisons, it is still feasible. Also, I do not think it is a coincidence that  there are seven of them. The number seven is all throughout the Bible. The dwarfs help Snow White in any way that they can. They try to save her and keep her as safe as possible. They play the role of what Christians believe their pastors play.

Snow-White-Prince-Charming-disney-couples-18862104-411-300

Last, but not least, Snow White’s Prince Charming can be seen as Jesus. The Prince is her overall Savior from the wickedness of the queen. Jesus is the overall Savior of Eve, even though she committed a sin. Prince Charming brings Snow White back to life by a kiss and Eve is brought  “back to life” (by that I mean, given another chance when He could have left her for dead) by forgiveness (with some consequences involved). Both Snow White and Eve needed a Savior to reverse the damage caused by their foolish behavior.

1289725_1381433037646_full

There are many references to Genesis in today’s society. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a very close re-creation of the oldest story of all time. Even though they do not follow along the same plot, you see a lot of similar characteristics present in both. They have a great moral meaning behind them for any religion or race. The allusion Walt Disney gives to the Bible in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is excellent and presented to the audience very well, as a modern day Eve, without the snake.

Biblical Allusion

Who are the characters in this story and what do they represent?

Eve is an Adamite (a [snow] white woman - the name Adam means ruddy complexion or show blood in the face, i.e. to blush.

The evil stepmother represents Satan, the snake in the grass, who tricked Eve into disobeying God's command to not partake of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Up until that fateful event, Adam and Eve were as innocent as babes. However, this event was not an accident or beyond God's control. In fact, He orchestrated the whole thing. ~Isaiah 45:7

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

The Seven Dwarfs represent organized religion. Try as it might, organized religion can only feed the flock. It cannot save anyone, or give anyone eternal life. Only the Prince, the son of God, has that power. Organized religions are "dwarfs" compared to the power of God's written and spoken word.

What did Eve do that caused her "death"? She believed a lie and was poisoned by sin (the wages of sin is death). The Snake told Eve she "would not surely die" as God had said. Instead, her eyes would be opened and she would become wise and be like a god.

The poisoned "apple" represents the false doctrines of organized religion and the traditions of men. Mankind was not created corrupt, but has been corrupted. That's why man needs a Savior, someone with the power to open their eyes to the Truth and resurrect them to eternal life. Churchanity has put the congregation to sleep with their fables. ~2 Timothy 4:4

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

What about Snow White's father remarrying and then passing away? What does the Bible say about Eve's father? Well, we know that Adam was a son of God and Eve was part of Adam, flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone. God did not "pass away", but He did divorce his first wife and left His children orphaned for a while. Shocking? Read Jeremiah 3:8

And I (God) saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I (God) had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

That's right, God divorced His wife because she went whoring after other gods (husbands) and gave herself over to false saviors.

Jesus said He came to seek the "lost sheep of the house (family) of Israel" MT. 15:24. Snow White represents the descendants of Jacob/Israel, the Israelite people that were "scattered abroad". ~James 1:1

Where are the Israelites today? Hiding in plain sight in Christian Churches all around the world.

How did the Grimm brothers get the story of Snow White? It was told to them by the "scattered" people who only had the hand-me-down fairy tales of their elders. In all their travels they had lost their identity, but retained the essence of their ancestry. Under the Old Covenant they were known by many names... Adamites, Isaac's Sons (or Saxons), Hebrews, Israelites, Caucasians. 

Under the New Covenant they are simply... Christians of every nation. ~Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 10:34-36, Revelation 14:6

It wasn't until the Bible was printed for the masses that some Christians began to recognize the truth and re-discovered the true Israel of the Bible. For more information read, Who Is Israel? Who Is The Church?

Feasts of the LORD

Leviticus 23 - New King James Version


And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.

The Sabbath

 

3 Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work on it; it is the Sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings.

The Passover and Unleavened Bread

 

4 These are the feasts of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times. On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it. But you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.

The Feast of Firstfruits 

(New Testament requires a living sacrifice)

 

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 10 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest. 11 He shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted on your behalf; on the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12 And you shall offer on that day, when you wave the sheaf, a male lamb of the first year, without blemish, as a burnt offering to the Lord. 13 Its grain offering shall be two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to the Lord, for a sweet aroma; and its drink offering shall be of wine, one-fourth of a hin. 14 You shall eat neither bread nor parched grain nor fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your God; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

The Feast of Weeks (Pentecost  in the New Testament)

 

15 And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed. 16 Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord. 17 You shall bring from your dwellings two wave loaves of two-tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven. They are the firstfruits to the Lord. 18 And you shall offer with the bread seven lambs of the first year, without blemish, one young bull, and two rams. They shall be as a burnt offering to the Lord, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire for a sweet aroma to the Lord. 19 Then you shall sacrifice one kid of the goats as a sin offering, and two male lambs of the first year as a sacrifice of a peace offering. 20 The priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the Lord for the priest. 21 And you shall proclaim on the same day that it is a holy convocation to you. You shall do no customary work on it. It shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
22 When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field when you reap, nor shall you gather any gleaning from your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the stranger: I am the Lord your God.

The Feast of Trumpets

 

23 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.

The Day of Atonement

 

26 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 27 Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. 28 And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. 29 For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. 30 And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. 31 You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32 It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath.

The Feast of Tabernacles

 

33 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 34 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord. 35 On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it. 36 For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it.
37 These are the feasts of the Lord which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire to the Lord, a burnt offering and a grain offering, a sacrifice and drink offerings, everything on its day— 38 besides the Sabbaths of the Lord, besides your gifts, besides all your vows, and besides all your freewill offerings which you give to the Lord.
39 Also on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the Lord for seven days; on the first day there shall be a sabbath-rest, and on the eighth day a sabbath-rest. 40 And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days. 41 You shall keep it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths, 43 that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.
44 So Moses declared to the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD.

After reading Leviticus 23, can anyone tell me when the LORD said to observe the New Year in the dead of winter? Celebrate Easter? Make Christmas Jesus' birthday? Or ANY of the holiday traditions of men?

Forget the argument about "priest" and "burnt offering". Any sincere Bible student knows the Old Testament Feast Days were a pattern and shadow to come of the New Testament Feast Days when Christ became our Passover lamb and our High Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.

Read verses 14, 21, 31 and 41 again. Has forever passed? Only the symbols were changed, not the observance.

"For the time will come when they (nominal Christians) will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;  and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables". ~2 Timothy 4:3-5

My Church does not keep the Feasts of the LORD, so what do I do now? Find a group to fellowship with at Feast time... http://www.feastgoer.org/index.html

God has always preserved a remnant of people who are sincerely trying to do as God instructs. ~Romans 11:5

Won't it be a wonderful day when all of God's children can meet together and not care what church they went to.
