Can We KEEP the Feast Days *Outside* of Jerusalem, Zion? Shalawm Yasharahl, in this lesson for you, we seek to find out the *answer* to the question: Can We Keep the Feast Days OUTSIDE of Jerusalem, and what does the Bible REALLY Say about this Topic? As we all know, many of you keep these feast days, but the question is; are you keeping them in error? Every year, after the Month of Abib (the first month according to our calendar), begins the "Feast Days" of The Most High and our ancient forefathers, all of which were a celebration of the things that The Heavenly Father (through YHWH-Shi) has done for our ancestor's and us, as well as what he will do (again) once YHWH-Shi (or whatever you choose to call him) comes to give us *back* our rightful possession(s). Now, I’m not saying that we shouldn’t have *knowledge* of these days, as we should teach other Hebrews about them, as well as our respective families and children as well. But the thing is, can we *honestly* keep these days, while in captivity? Also, I am *not* saying that the biblical feast days are "done away with", but from what the Bible says, they are "temporarily suspended" until we go back home to Jerusalem... I also understand that many of us have “good hearts”, which is great, but we must also ensure that our “good hearts” are in the RIGHT place, according to what The Heavenly Father says, and not according to what is normally “parroted” by the brother’s/sister’s on here… Let’s see what the BIBLE says, and not what “breakdance89”, or your favorite Israelite “camp” says, because as a people, we have to follow The Messiah and *not* the “precepts/commandments” of men (our brother’s), no matter how many scriptures they can "quote", or how "fly" their "breakdowns" are. Remember Tzayawn, these are NOT "my" words, but all of these scriptures come from The Most High through the Mashayach (Messiah) himself/their selves: ______________________________________________________________________________ 1 Samuel 22-24 & 29 - 22And Samuel said, Hath *YAH* as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in OBEYING the voice of *YAH*? Behold, to obey is BETTER than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. Yasharahl/Tzayawn (Israel/Zion), don't you know that it is better to *obey* The Most High rather than to do what "you" want, out of your own "will"? In regards to the feast days, we will see if it's the *will* of The Heavenly Father that we keep these days *outside* of our hometown of Jerusalem, and what The Most High says himself about these things... 23For REBELLION is as the sin of WITCHCRAFT, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of *YAH*, he hath also REJECTED thee from being king. Tzayawn, whenever you choose to keep these days outside of Jerusalem, you are committing "rebellion" against The Heavenly Father, which is "as the SIN of WITCHCRAFT". You are keeping these days in *vain*, as we are (1) not in our land of Israel, (2) we do not rule or own *anything*, and (3) The Most High specifically *commands* us to keep these days ONLY in Jerusalem, Israel, and *nowhere* else! Remember Israel, we are a *stiff-necked* (stubborn) people, and this is why *YAH* said this: and "STUBBORNESS is as INIQUITY and IDOLATRY"... 24And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of *YAH*, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed THEIR voice. Tzayawn, whenever we "attempt" (and fail) to keep these days out of our own "will", we are committing an act of *sin*! Whenever a Hebrew camp, or brother/sister, tries to teach you to keep these days, and you "obeyed THEIR voice", and not The Heavenly Father, then you are basically telling *YAH* to go "screw himself", which is certainly a *no-no*! Remember, instead of "obeying the commandments of men", you should *fear YAH* (only), but instead, we have "feared the people" (Israelite camps and so forth), and not obeyed what The Heavenly Father has written in the Old *and* New Testament about this important subject. 29And also the Strength of Israel will NOT lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent. Now Israel, it would be "common sense" to know that the "STRENGTH of ISRAEL" is referring to The Most High through YHWH-Shi, and *only* him/them! Remember, just like Malachi 3:6 told you said, "For I am *YAH*, I change NOT." This means that he *means* what he says, and that he does not "change", which also means that the statutes (laws) on the feast days are the *same* from The Old Testament to The New Testament, as the scriptures will soon show you. Exodus 12:1-6 - 1And *YAH* spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying, 2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Yasharahl, this "month" is talking about the month of *Abib* ("aka" Nisan), which is the FIRST month of the year, according to *our* Hebrew calendar. With this month, The Most High had commanded our forefather's to prepare a lamb, in preparation for Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. 3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: Israel, back then, every Hebrew *man* had to go find a lamb (un-blemished), so that he could prepare and kill it for the Feast of Unleavened Bread, as well as for the Passover Sacrifice. 4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. If it was too much lamb for the man and his household, he and his neighbor would have to share the lamb, so that it could be *completely* eaten. With this particular day, The Most High commanded us to *throw away* the "left-overs", and this would also explain why *YAH* wanted the men to share with their neighbor, so that there would be no lamb left the next day. 5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: Israel, in today's time (as well as back then), in order to eat a *lamb*, it MUST be *one year old*, of the *male* gender, and it cannot have even *ONE* blemish! Now think about this: Since you Negroes (Israelites) are buying the LAMB from Esau's "food markets" (death markets), (1)how do you know that it didn't even ONE BLEMISH on it, (2) how do you know that it was a MALE, and (3) how do you know that it was ONE year old, and not two or more? Just with the *lamb* Israel, your "sacrifice" and keeping of this would be done in *vain*, as it MUST be done the way that *YAH* commands, and not according to what "we" (or your favorite "teacher") want! 6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. Brother's and sister's, in order to truly *keep* this day (or any High Holy/Feast Day), we would have to do it *exactly* like this! Now, not only are we *not* in Jerusalem, but how many Negroes do you know who have *one* lamb, let alone one that's *un-blemished*, and not only that, how many of you Negroes have the "guts" to KILL a lamb (or even *slit* its throat)...MOST of you *do not*! Not only that, but we had to "KILL" the lamb, which also means that you Hebrews who are keeping this day are doing it in *vain*, because the "lamb" that you guys buy was already *killed*, chopped-up, and already butchered (by Esau, probably) before you bought/got it! According to The Most High, you would have to *slaughter* a "live" lamb, and then burn/roast it according to *his* specifications, *not* yours... Also Israel, the context of this situation happened in *the wilderness*, on our way to the Land of Israel. Deuteronomy 12:5-11/13-14/17-18/21/26-27 - 5But unto the place which *YAH* your God shall CHOOSE out of all your tribes to put HIS name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come: 6And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: 7And THERE ye shall eat before *YAH* your God, and ye shall rejoice in ALL that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein *YAH* thy God hath blessed thee. 8Ye shall NOT do after all the things that we do here this day, every man WHATSOEVER is right in his OWN eyes. Israel, when it says, "whatsoever is right in his OWN eyes", this means that we are *not* to do whatever we "feel" like doing, especially in regards to our Feast Days. We MUST keep them the way that The Most High tells us to, or else! 9For ye are not as yet come to the REST and to the INHERITANCE, which *YAH* your God giveth you. 10But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which *YAH* your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety; As we are starting to see, Israel (Jerusalem) is the place where we are to celebrate the Feast Days. 11Then THERE shall be a PLACE which *YAH* your God shall CHOOSE to cause his name to dwell THERE; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto *YAH*: Tzayawn, when it says, "Then there shall be a PLACE which *YAH* your God shall CHOOSE to cause his NAME to DWELL there", what place is it talking about...Jerusalem (only)! Our burnt offerings, sacrifices, tithes, heave offerings, and High Holy/Feast Days must be *kept* (brought) to Jerusalem. At this time, the *heathens* are in control of our land, and we have no *power* (but YHWH-Shi) to go back, so until then, the Feast Days will have to *wait* (temporary suspension)... 13Take heed to thyself that thou offer NOT thy burnt offerings in EVERY place that thou seest: 14But in the place which *YAH* shall CHOOSE in one of thy tribes, THERE thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and there thou shalt do all that I command thee. Israel, back then, we couldn't just give an "offering" to The Most High the way we wanted, so what makes you Negroes think that y'all can do the same *today*? Just like we had to keep the Feast Days a certain way and place, the *same* applies to us Israelite's scattered abroad, even today. 17Thou mayest NOT eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or of thy wine, or of thy oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill offerings, or heave offering of thine hand: 18But thou must eat them before *YAH* thy God in the PLACE which *YAH* thy God shall CHOOSE, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates: and thou shalt rejoice before *YAH* thy God in all that thou puttest thine hands unto. Whenever you try to do a "Passover", Yasharahl (Israel), it MUST be *eaten* "in the PLACE which *YAH* thy God shall CHOOSE", which is certainly Jerusalem! You cannot keep this day in New York, Texas, Florida, California, or *any* other place BUT Jerusalem! 21If the place which *YAH* thy God hath chosen to put his name there be too far from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy herd and of thy flock, which *YAH* hath given thee, as I have commanded thee, and thou shalt eat in thy gates whatsoever thy soul lusteth after. Negroes will try to "twist" this scripture to make it "sound" like we can do *whatever* we want, when the previous scriptures (before this and after) say the *opposite*! In this verse, if you cannot go to the place where The Most High wants you to sacrifice and kill the Passover lamb/goat, then you would have to "KILL of thy HERD and of thy FLOCK"! However, how many *Negroes* do you know that have a cow, lamb, or goat, let alone a "flock"! The only "flock" that us Israelite's have right now is when follow after the "teachings" of the Israelite brethren on here, in which many of them are *lies* and *abominations* in the sight of The Heavenly Father through YHWH-Shi! 26Only thy holy things which thou hast, and thy vows, thou shalt take, and go unto the place which *YAH* shall choose: 27And thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of *YAH* thy God: and the blood of thy sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of *YAH* thy God, and thou shalt eat the flesh. Tzayawn, if you want to truly *keep* the Feast Days, then this is what you'll have to do. If you want to be *dis-obedient* and "keep the Feast Days", then so be it, but please *know* that you are keeping them in ERROR (sin), and we know what sin is, according to 1 John 3:4, and a *host* of other scriptures... Leviticus 17:1-7 - 1And *YAH* spake unto Moses, saying, 2Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them; This is the thing which *YAH* hath commanded, saying, 3What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp, 4And bringeth it NOT unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an offering unto *YAH* before the tabernacle of *YAH*; blood shall be imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people: Tzayawn, in this scripture, we see that whenever we wanted to do of our "own will", and NOT of The Most High's, we would be put to *death*, in regards to "BLOOD shall be IMUTED unto THAT man...that man shall be CUT OFF"! 5To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which they offer in the open field, even that they may bring them unto *YAH*, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest, and offer them for peace offerings unto *YAH*. 6And the priest shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of *YAH* at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and burn the fat for a sweet savour unto *YAH*. 7And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations. Tzayawn, whenever we do what we want, in regards to keeping the Feast Days, we are offering our "sacrifices unto DEVILS", which is all done in *vain*! We MUST bring our sacrifices in the way *he* wants us to, and not of our own volition. Deuteronomy 16:1-2/5-7/16 - 1Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto *YAH* thy God: for in the month of Abib *YAH* thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. Remember Tzayawn, the "month of Abib" is the FIRST month of the *Hebrew* calendar, and it is also called the month of "Nisan". Passover was kept by our forefather's during this month, *in* Jerusalem (only). Also, during the *first* Passover, The Most High had allowed our forefather's to *escape* the bondage of Egypt, so that we could make it into the Wilderness and then eventually into the Land of Israel. 2Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto *YAH* thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the PLACE which *YAH* shall CHOOSE to place his name there. Remember Tzayawn, New York, or any other place in which we've been scattered to, is *not* the "PLACE which *YAH* shall CHOOSE to place his NAME there", but *Jerusalem* sure is! 5Thou mayest NOT sacrifice the passover within ANY of thy gates, which *YAH* thy God giveth thee: 6BUT at the place which *YAH* thy God shall CHOOSE to place HIS name in, THERE thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt. 7And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which *YAH* thy God shall CHOOSE: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents. We can only do *Passover* at the place of Jerusalem, and not in "any of thy gates", meaning other places outside of this Israelite *landmark*! Not only that Israel, but since the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread go together like bread and turkey meat (LOL), that would mean that your lamb *must* be PERFECT! Once again, you do not know if the lamb that you bought at the meat market was *one-five* years old, and you can bet that it had some *blemishes* on it! Not only that, Israel, but you do not even know if the lamb has been dead for a day, a week, a month, or even a few years, because the meat market(s) might've had it locked up in storage freezing somewhere for a very LONG period of time, and you would never know it. You *cannot* keep these days unless you do it PERFECTLY, while in *Jerusalem*, the way The Most High wants *you* to keep it! In fact, we cannot even "roast" (cook) our food (for these days) anywhere us but Jerusalem, once again! 16Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before *YAH* thy God in the PLACE which he shall CHOOSE; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before *YAH* empty: After we did our Passover, Tzayawn, we also had to *keep* the Feasts of Unleavened Bread, Weeks, and Tabernacles the way The Most High *wanted* us to! These were the *3* feasts that followed immediately after the Passover, and they also had to be *properly kept* in Jerusalem! BTW, when it says, "and they shall NOT appear before *YAH* empty", this means that our forefathers were not to go and sacrifice before The Most High *empty-handed*, meaning that (1) they didn't have anything to sacrifice or (2) they weren't supposed to sacrifice in the in-correct manner (like Cain did)! Also, in the Feast of Unleavened Bread, this is where our forefather's could eat the Passover lamb, just so you know... 2 Chronicles 6:5-9 - 5Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose NO city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that MY name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel: Now what "city" did The Most High *choose* for us? You will *soon* find out, O' Israel! 6But I have chosen JERUSALEM, that my NAME might be THERE; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel. Israel, I hope you get the *point* that it is ONLY *Jerusalem* where The Most High's "name" is! Also, we can *only* keep the Passover, and the other three Feasts (listed above), at this most special place, according to The Most High! 7Now it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of *YAH* God of Israel. 8But *YAH* said to David my father, Forasmuch as it was in thine heart to build an HOUSE for my name, thou didst well in that it was in thine heart: 9Notwithstanding thou shalt not build the house; but thy son which shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house for my name. Now what "house" are these scriptures talking about...Jerusalem, Israel! On another point, remember that the Passover is not really so much of a "feast day" (unlike Tabernacles), but a day were we would sacrifice a lamb in *preparation* of a Feast Day. This would all be done on the *10th* day of the month of Abib/Nisan, where we would find a perfect lamb, but then on the 14th, we would have to *slaughter* (kill) him, so that we could offer up a sacrifice unto The Most High. After this, the *Levite* priest(s) would sprinkle the lamb's blood upon our altars, and after that, we were able to *eat* the lamb in JERUSALEM (once again), once the sun went down in Jerusalem (start of 15th day). One last thing, remember that *YHWH-Shi* was "sacrificed" (killed) for OUR sakes on this day, as a "Passover" sacrifice for us to The Most High! He did this to *atone* for the sin's of Israel, so that we could ascend into the "Christ-consciousness" (ultimately perfection) that the scriptures infer about, all throughout the New Testament! Numbers 9:9-13 - 9And *YAH* spake unto Moses, saying, 10Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey AFAR off, yet he shall keep the passover unto *YAH*. 11The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. 12They shall leave NONE of it unto the morning, nor break ANY bone of it: according to ALL the ORDINANCES of the passover they shall keep it. Tzayawn, back then, even if for some odd reason we were not able to keep the Passover in the first month (of Abib), then we had to keep it in the SECOND month that preceded after it! Also, we had to do it the way The Most High wanted us to, and not the way we "wanted" to, similar to you Negroes today! 13But the man that is clean, and is NOT in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of *YAH* in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin. Israel, this would mean that if we didn't feel like doing it the way The Heavenly Father wanted us to, we would be *surely* put-to-death! *YAH* does NOT "play", Israel, so you better not be keeping these days in *vain*! 2 Chronicles 30:1-3/5/13-27 - 1And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the HOUSE of *YAH* at JERUSALEM, to keep the passover unto *YAH* God of Israel. How many times will the scriptures have to *prove* to you Jake’s (Negroes/Israelites) that we MUST be in *Jerusalem* to KEEP these days the *right* way?!?!?!? 2For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in JERUSALEM, to keep the passover in the second month. 3For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people GATHERED themselves together to JERUSALEM. Since we couldn't get it right the first month of Abib, we had to get it together in the second month, or else... 5So they established a decree to make proclamation throughout all Israel, from Beersheba even to Dan, that they should come to KEEP the passover unto *YAH* God of Israel at JERUSALEM: for they had NOT done it of a long time in such sort as it was written. When will you Negroes get an *over-standing* that the Passover, as well as the other Feast Days, MUST, MUST, MUST, MUST, MUST, MUST, MUST be *kept* ONLY in *Jerusalem*? Even Ha Mashayach (The Messiah) knew this, as well as Apostle Shaul (Paul)! 13And there assembled at JERUSALEM much people to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month, a very great congregation. Yes Indeed Israel, *Jerusalem* is the ONLY "place" to be, when it comes to Passover and the other Feast Days! 14And they arose and took away the altars that were in JERUSALEM, and all the altars for incense took they away, and cast them into the brook Kidron. 15Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in the burnt offerings into the house of *YAH*. 16And they stood in their place after their manner, according to the law of Moses the man of God (*YAH*): the priests sprinkled the blood, which they received of the hand of the Levites. 17For there were many in the congregation that were not sanctified: therefore the Levites had the charge of the killing of the passovers for every one that was not clean, to sanctify them unto *YAH*. 18For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, The good *YAH* pardon every one 19That prepareth his heart to seek God, *YAH* God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary. 20And *YAH* hearkened to Hezekiah, and healed the people. 21And the children of Israel that were present at JERUSALEM kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with great gladness: and the Levites and the priests praised *YAH* day by day, singing with loud instruments unto *YAH*. 22And Hezekiah spake comfortably unto all the Levites that taught the good knowledge of *YAH*: and they did eat throughout the feast seven days, offering peace offerings, and making confession to *YAH* God of their fathers. 23And the whole assembly took counsel to keep other seven days: and they kept other seven days with gladness. This was the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Israel! 24For Hezekiah king of Judah did give to the congregation a thousand bullocks and seven thousand sheep; and the princes gave to the congregation a thousand bullocks and ten thousand sheep: and a great number of priests sanctified themselves. 25And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced. 26So there was great joy in JERUSALEM: for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel there was not the like in JERUSALEM. 27Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto heaven. Now Israel, when was the last time you experienced *any* of this kind-of EXCITEMENT...*never*! You know why...because you aren't keeping these days correctly! Whenever we kept the Feast/High Holy Days *correctly*, The Most High would do some *wonderful* things for our peoples', and that's for real! YHWH/YAH is *abhorred* at the so-called "Feast Days" that you Negroes keep in *error* (sinfully), as well as the ones' that y'all have "made up", out of your own volition(s)! LOL, I hear a "new" Feast Day every time I read the comment/video boards, and I'm like, "DANG, These Negroes are doing all of this in VAIN"! LOL, you Negroes will probably make up a new day called the "Feast of Simon"...wait-a-minute, isn't that in the Book of Maccabees, LOL (rhetorical question)!!! Luke 2:40-43 - 40And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him. Now this is talking about "Christ" (YHWHShi/YashaYAH/Yahshua/Yahoshua/Yahuwshua/etc.)... 41Now his parents went to JERUSALEM *every* year at the feast of the passover. Remember Israel, it was our *custom*, according to The Most High, that Passover be kept in Jerusalem *every* year! 42And when he was twelve years old, they went up to JERUSALEM after the CUSTOM of the feast. 43And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child YHWH-Shi tarried behind in JERUSALEM; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it. Now we know that according to the "scriptures" (Old Testament), it was a MUST that the Feast(s) are kept in Jerusalem (only)... Also, remember that this is YHWH-Shi Ha Mashayach ("Jesus the Christ") who we are talking about! If *anybody* would be allowed to not have to keep the Feast Days in Jerusalem, you would think it would be *him*, BUT it turns out that even HE kept these days the way they were *commanded* to be kept (in the Old Testament)! Now if our savior, who has NEVER sinned and was *without* blemish (like a Passover lamb), kept this day the right way (only in Jerusalem), then what does that say about *you*, O' Israel?! Are you now *dis-obeying* YHWH-Shi, and keeping the Feast Days the way you "want" to keep them (in vain)? I hope not... 2 Chronicles 7:12/16 - 12And *YAH* appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen THIS place to myself for an HOUSE of sacrifice. 16For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my NAME may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. Now Israel, what "place" is The Most High referring to...JERUSALEM! Not only that, but in order to keep these days, the Temple/Tabernacle must be with us (in Jerusalem), and we have to be under TRUE-Israelite control! Right now, the *heathens* are "trodding down" our homeland, so it's no use in trying to "keep" a Feast that is *forbidden* of us to keep (outside of Jerusalem)... Also, the temple, or the "House of YAH" mentioned in 2 Chronicles 30:1, must be around for us to celebrate these days... Don't worry, these days WILL come *back*, when we are RULING the *universe*, while in JERUSALEM! Acts 2:1-11 - 1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in ONE place. Yasharahl/Israel, in The New Testament, the "day of Pentecost" is another name for the *Feast of Weeks*, that are forefather's kept back in the Old Testament! We will find out, in verse 5, just who these people are, in regards to "ALL with ONE accord in ONE place", and where this "place" was... 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Now brother's/sister's, let's be REAL...When was the last time something this *MAGNIFICENT* happened to you, as a result of *correctly* keeping a Feast Day the way The Most High instructed you to...NEVER! LOL, these Israelite's were given the *ability* to speak and understand *MULTIPLE* tongues (languages), which is something that I've NEVER seen amongst you Negroes and your so-called "appointed feast days"! LOL, you Negroes can barely speak "English" correctly, let alone "Ebonics", ROTFL! This scripture *alone* shows us that we cannot *keep* these days over here, because if it were possible, "magical" things from The Most High would start to happen all around and *to* us! 5And there were dwelling at JERUSALEM Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. So we understand that the "all" mentioned in verse 1 were "JEWS, DEVOUT men, out of EVERY nation under heaven"! This goes to show you that our forefather's were *everywhere* on the planet, and that *every* year, we would try our best to come back home to *Jerusalem*, so that we could FEAST (in the correct manner), with other Hebrew brother's/sister's! BTW, the word "devout" means to be: 1. Devoted to religion or to religious feelings and duties; absorbed in religious exercises; given to devotion; pious; reverent; religious. 2. (archaic) Expressing devotion or piety; as, eyes devout; sighs devout; a devout posture. 3. Warmly devoted; hearty; sincere; earnest; as, devout wishes for one's welfare. In other words, these Israelite's *loved* to keep the commandments to the BEST of their abilities (through The Set Apart/Holy Spirit)! 6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. Once again, when was the last time The Most High did some "wonderful works" for you, in regards to your *im-proper* keeping of the Feast Days...NEVER! Remember Israel, these Hebrews were from *all over* the globe, but yet they still chose *not* to keep it in the countries of their birth, unlike us, but they came back home to JERUSALEM to keep The Feast Days (and Passover)! Now the question is...if they didn't do it the wrong way (back then), then why do you The Feast Days in AmeriKKKa, the Caribbean Islands, in Europe, Asia, or AfriKKKa, and not in Jerusalem (only)?!?!?!?!?!?!? Zechariah 14:16-19 - 16And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against JERUSALEM shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, *YAH* of hosts, and to KEEP the feast of tabernacles. Israel, this is a *future prophecy* that has NOT happened *yet*, but WILL before/by the time The Most High comes to *deliver* us/Israel from our enemies! Even at this time, the "Feast of Tabernacles" (and the other days) MUST be *kept* in Jerusalem, for us Israelite's as well as the *heathens* that are still alive (that will go into SLAVERY/CAPTIVITY)! 17And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto JERUSALEM to worship the King, *YAH* of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. 18And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith *YAH* will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 19This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come NOT up to keep the feast of tabernacles. Israel, The Most High will once again *punish* those who don't keep it the RIGHT way, as he commanded us back in Jerusalem! If we have to keep it, and we *will*, because we will be made PERFECT, then what do you think will happen to the *heathen* (rhetorical question)! 1 Corinthians 5:6-8 - 6Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? In this scripture, Apostle Shaul/Paul is telling us that a little *sin* can mess up *everything* for us, to put it in "laymen's terms". 7Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Tzayawn, once we come back into that "Christ-consciousness", we put away our old sins/lives, and come into the *freedom* that YHWH-Shi brings us, which is a sin-less lifestyle (with faith of course)! Also, remember that "Christ" was our "Passover lamb", who came to die for the sin's of ISRAEL, and also to redeem us from our enemies in the *near* future. Remember, he was sacrificed at JERUSALEM, which is the *only* place allowed by The Most High for us to either (1) sacrifice a Passover lamb or (2) celebrate a High Holy/Feast Day... 8Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Acts 18:19-21 - 19And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews. Now this is Apostle Shaul/Paul that these scriptures are making reference to... 20When they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented not; We will see *why* Apostle Shaul didn't go with them, because he knew the Feast Days *must* be kept in Jerusalem... 21But bade them farewell, saying, I MUST by ALL MEANS keep this feast that cometh in JERUSALEM: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus. Now this is Apostle Paul/Shaul speaking, and if *he*, who many of you “hate”, can keep the feast in JERUSALEM, what does that mean say about what you? If you don't *understand* by now Israel, either (1) pray to The Most High for *confirmation* on this important topic, or (2) keep doing the Feast Days in *vain*, while putting yourself and other Hebrews in *bondage* (and danger)... It's your choice, Israel, and I pray that you all will “sleep” (meditate) on this important topic, because the words above are *not* from “my own mouth”, but from the scriptures… Shalawm Yasharahl (Peace Israel)!
