Are God's 7 Feasts ONLY for the Jews?



As a watcher, waiting for our Lord Jesus, I've been overzealous, overanxious and thrilled waiting for each and any possible sign of our Lord calling us home.  But recently,  I am keeping an open mind and heart while Dr. Jimmy DeYoung , Prophecy Today, and others like Dr. Ice, who believe that the Rapture is NOT linked to Feast of Trumpets and that if we really study scripture carefully, we realize that the Rapture will happen at any moment.  Pre Tribulation Rapture...

Question:  Are The Feasts of God given to the Jews.  Repeat:  The Feasts Belong to God no question, but is God using these convocations (rehearsals)  of His Feasts, to teach the Jews?  

I wasn't  sure.. Of course we clearly see the fulfilling of the 4 spring feasts directly fulfilled by Jesus which of course affects the church (death and resurrection and the church age of pentacost), but is this a sign for the Jews?   Especially now looking carefully at the remaining 3 unfilled feasts, specifically the Feast of Trumpets, Rosh Hashanah which many, including myself believed was directly linked to the Rapture.  I personally believe there's compelling bible evidence that shows the Feast of Trumpets is linked directly to the Rapture.  HOWEVER,.....since 2011 *which was a very high rapture watch year* passed and then 2012, has come and gone,  I must ask the question.

 Also, it has dawned on me that if we only wait every year for Rosh Hashanah to be "Rapture Ready"  then we are clearly not listening to scripture that clearly tells us to be ready and watch.  (quote:  "Christ,upon instructing His disciples on how citizens of the kingdom should conduct themselves after His departure until His return, counseled a posture of"readiness," "alertness," "waiting and watching," faithfully engaged in performing the tasks He left His followers to do (Matt. 24:45-47; Luke12:35-40; Mark 13:33-37). While itis true that these passages from the Gospels refer to the coming of the Messianic Kingdom at the second coming following the Tribulation, it appearsthat the posture of readiness, alertness, watching, and waiting is also Christ's will for His church as commanded in the Epistles. Nowhere is there even a hint that signs will relate to the rapture." Dr. Ice in pre-trib.org articles.)

I don't apologize for getting too excited waiting with great anticipation for our Lord, BUT I do apologize if I've misled some into thinking I'm a date setter and that Rosh Hashana is a for sure Date. Please forgive me, and may God forgive me.  God bless you.

NOTWITHSTANDING..... PLEASE KNOW THIS Bottom line:  We Must Be ready, be vigilant, Time has run out.  Jesus will truly come and take his people home.  It could literally happen at any second.  Don't be left behind.

  1. Randy- The Feasts are THE LORDS Feasts, not the Jews. They are really the Feasts of Jesus. Here is a quote from "Who is the Bride of Christ?" by Eddy Chumney, chapter 12-

    "Traditionally, Christians view the Biblical festivals to be exclusively Jewish feasts which are "under the law." However, Leviticus 23:1-2, 4 tells us very clearly that these are FESTIVALS OF THE LORD. Since Jesus is Lord, these are the feasts of Jesus. God in His divine wisdom ordained that these festivals were to be celebrated by BOTH the Jew and the non-Jew on a joint basis (Deuteronomy 16:10- 11,14-16). In Deuteronomy 16:11 it is written:

    "And thou shalt rejoice before the Lord thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the STRANGER, and the fatherless, and the widow; that are among you, in the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen to place his name there."

    In this verse, the word translated as "stranger" is the Hebrew word, "ger." It is the Strong's word 1616. The Hebrew word, "ger" means the non-Jew (Bible believing Gentile or Christian) who has joined himself to the Jewish people. Therefore, the Lord is the host of the festivals and all Bible believers are His invited guests."

  2. Thank you Sarah for taking the time to explain this. I will check this out. I understand how we're grafted into the branch of Abraham etc, but also, I understand that the 7 year tribulation is the time of "Jacob's trouble" a time for God to deal with the Jews until they finally open their eyes to the Jesus as their Messiah. Amen. But I know you've done so much research on this. God bless you.

    1. Randy I am not necessarily saying we should be observing these feasts. I am not in full understanding of how to actually do that as a Christian. But I do acknowledge them and have taken time to study them. I agree that the trib is for God to deal with the Jews, and the left behind backslid Church.

      It hit me when one day when I was reading Dan 9:24 that this is about the Jews.

      Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

      "To FINISH THE TRANSGRESSION"- The Holy Spirit opened my eyes to see this clearly as the rejection of Christ by the Jews.

      With that in mind now read Mat 22:1-14. This parable is about the Jews rejecting Jesus, the destruction of the temple, and the Gospel going out to the Gentiles.

      Also this short video from Chuck Missler explains how we lost our understanding of the Jewish roots of our faith--Its a shame.
