SCRIPTURE
Therefore let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or
A NEW MOON OR SABBATHS" (Colossians 2:16)

"THE HOLY DAYS OF YAHWEH" 

C.O.F.A.H does not proclaim one day holier than another.
We recognize that we as a people have lost our heritage
"YeremiYah 17:4"
Thus we proclaim

Romans 14:5,6
" One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto Yahweh; and he that regardeth not the day, to Yahweh he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to Yahweh, for he giveth Yahweh thanks; and he that eateth not to Yahweh he eateth not, and giveth Yahweh thanks.

SCRIPTURE PASSAGE
FOR THE SEVEN FEASTS

Leviticus 23:1-44 NKJV
1. And YAHWEH spoke to Moses, saying, 2. "Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: 'The feasts of YAHWEH, which you shall proclaim
to be holy convocations,these are My feasts. 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
YAHWEH in all your dwellings. 4. 'These are the feasts
of YAHWEH, holy convocations which you shall
proclaim at their appointed times.

AN OVERVIEW OF PASSOVER IN YAHWEH'S
HOLY SALVATION AGENDA.
PASSOVER IS THE FIRST OF THE THREE SPRING FEASTS:
ALL THREE HAVE ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED.
 
*This does not mean we do not honor these days. It simple means we honor
them differently than our Ancestors.*

PASSOVER IS ALSO THE FIRST OF THE SEVEN FEASTS OF YSRAYL
.

THE MEANING OF THE PASSOVER
Salvation comes by the blood of the Sacrificed Lamb
 
Fulfilled by Yahoshua The MessiYah

1. PASSOVER
 
5. On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is 
YAHWEH'S PASSOVER
_________________________

On the 14th day of Abib the blood of the sacrifice lamb is shed. The blood on the door
brings salvation as the death angel passes overhead. It is the eve of the Passover and in
the the Exodus that follows YAHWEH'S covenant people are delivered
from the bondage of Egypt.

*FULFILLED*
On the 14th day of Abib in 32 A.D., on the eve of Passover, YAHOSHUA is crucified.
The blood of the promised Sacrifice Lamb is shed. This is the
redemption YAHWEH has provided. It brings salvation to
His covenant people
(THE HEBREWS), delivering them from
the bondage of sin and death.

____________________________

#1. Passover, (Yahoshua was crucified on Passover, Abib 14),
#2. Unleavened Bread, (He was buried on Unleavened Bread, Abib 15), and
#3. Firstfruits, (He rose from the dead on Firstfruits, Abib 17).

2. THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD



After the Passover lambs were slain at twilight the Feast of Unleavened Bread began at sunset. All leaven, a type of sin, was removed from the houses and the unleavened bread was eaten throughout the seven days of the feast.

*FULFILLED*
As the 15th day of Abib began at sunset after Passover Yahoshua was buried. He was the sinless unleavened 'Bread of Heaven' offered as the perfect sacrifice. Thus He fulfilled the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to YAHWEH; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. 7. On the first
day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary
work on it. 8 But you shall offer an offering made by fire to YAHWEH
for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation;
you shall do no customary work on it.'
" 9. And YAHWEH spoke to Moses, saying,

__________________________

3. THE FEAST OF FIRSTFRUITS

 
On the 17th day of the Abib moon the firstfruits of the barley harvest was gathered and waved before

YAHWEH in celebration.

*FULFILLED*
On the 17th day of Abib in 32 A.D. Yahoshua rises up from the grave. He is the firstfruits from the dead. On that very day He fulfilled the feast.
______________________________

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 YAHWEH, 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 YAHWEH. 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.

4. THE FEAST OF PENTECOST
(WEEKS)
 

50 days counted out from Firstfruits is Shavuot or Pentecost. YAHWEH comes down to His covenant people in an earthshaking day of visitation. It is a betrothal leading into
magnificent future glories.

___________________________
50 days from the day the firstfruits of the barley harvest was waved before YAHWEH,
(50 days from the morrow after the sabbath after Passover), is Shavuot or the Day of Pentecost. 
many believe that it was on this day that YAHWEH visited His people after their exodus from
Egypt and through Moses, brought the Law down from Mount Sinai. This earthshaking day of
visitation, trembling, and betrothal is the birthday of the nation of Ysrael. Moses brings down the
Torah or Law for the nation.
The Old Covenant is a national covenant between YAHWEH and His covenant people. And so the nation of Ysrael is established. They agree to follow Him in devotion and obedience. In spite of past failures Israel will be fully restored. "EZEK: 37"
 This will be accomplished in the power of the New Covenant.
YAHWEH'S law is written in the hearts. (See Jer.31:31 & Heb.8:8) Zechariah saw the nation of Israel repenting and receiving Messiah as Yerusalem was surrounded by armies at the close of
this GENERATION. (Zech 12:7-13:1)

*FULFILLED*
50 days from the day the firstfruits of the barley harvest was waved before YAHWEH,
(50 days from the morrow after the sabbath after Passover), in the summer of the year year of
Yahoshua's sacrifice, YAHWEH visits His people. This is another earthshaking day of visitation and engagement (betrothal). The RUACH KADOSH (Holy Spirit) fills the 120 in the upper room.

The outpouring of YAHWEH'S glory continues as they go out into the streets of the city of Yerusalem proclaiming the Good News, the message of redemption and salvation. The Feast of Pentecost is thereby fulfilled in the New Covenant and the Day of Pentecost becomes the birthday of the redemption of the Hebrews, Yahweh's people!

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 YAHWEH.
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 YAHWEH.
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 YAHWEH, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire for a sweet aroma to YAHWEH.
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 YAHWEH, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to YAHWEH 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 YAHWEH your FATHER.' "

5. THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS

THIS FEAST WILL SOON BE FULFILLED THE
SEVEN TRUMPETS IN REVELATION



23. Then YAHWEH spoke to Moses, saying, 24. "Speak to the children of
Ysrael, 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 YAHWEH.
"

In the fall of the year and on the first day of the Tishrei moon the trumpets are blown to announce Rosh Hashanah. This celebration will ultimately become a "memorial of blowing of trumpets"

The Feast of Trumpets is the first of the three Fall Feasts of Israel. These relate to Kingdom issues rather than priestly matters that we saw Messiah address in the spring feasts. "Ten days of awe" then lead on to Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. This is the most solemn day of the year. On this awesome day all accounts between YHVH-God and His covenant people are settled. And on this day the jubilee year is announced.

Trumpets are blown during special times of national crisis to call God's people to gather themselves together in a solemn assembly before YHVH-God. Trumpets also announce the coming of a king and are sounded in warfare.

REVELATION 8:6
"And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound."

6. THE DAY OF ATONEMENT
JOEL 3: 15-17
The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. YAHWEH shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Yerusalem;
and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but YAHWEH [will be] the hope
of his people, and the strength of the children of Ysrael.

So shall ye know that I [am] YAHWEH your FATHER dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no
strangers pass through her any more.


THE DAY OF ATONEMENT IS THE FINAL OPPORTUNITY TO REPENT!,
THE SABBATICAL CYCLE HAS RUN IT'S COURSE,
(THE END OF TIME) 
THE JUBILEE YEARS HAS COME TO IT'S COMPLETION,
AND THE ENTIRE EVIL AGE GOING BACK TO THE FALL OF MAN IN
THE GARDEN OF EDEN HAS NOW COME BEFORE YAHWEH.
IT IS THE LAST DAY FOR WAYWARD MANKIND TO
RECONCILE WITH YAHWEH! 

THIS IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR YAHWEH'S CHILDREN TO PREACH UNTO THE (THE HEBREWS) AND THEN TO THE GENTILE TO REPENT TO

OUR
FATHER YAHWEH WHO HAS MADE PROVISION AND ATONEMENT
FOR OUR SIN THROUGH THE SHED BLOOD OF OUR
BROTHER AND MESSIYAH YAHOSHUA.


26 YAHWEH 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 YAHWEH.
28 And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before YAHWEH.
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."

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS!
What makes the feast days so important is that we are to keep them on Yahweh's set apart Days! If we set-up our own days to honor these days our honor is not in Yahweh but in ourselves!
Read these scriptures PLEASE:

While we all think we are honoring YAHWEH with the days we keep, history shows it is not true.

YAHWEH told the house of Ysrael,
“I hate, I despise your feast days, and I do not savor your sacred assemblies” (Amos 5:21).
And He told the house of YAHUDAH, “Your New Moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them. When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not hear” (Isaiah 1:14-15). 

YAHWEH had given His HOLY People, meaningful feasts. YAHWEH DOES NOT DESPISE HIS FEASTS! YAHWEH despises YOUR feasts and YOUR appointed times and YOUR New moons.  NOT HIS! but yours. 
Our ancestors did not keep the feast days back then, and they walked with all the Prophets and had all the Holy scrolls and the Tabernacle was with them!
 How can we today who have been cut off from being a Nation,
Psalms 83:4
 
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name
of Ysrael may be no more in remembrance.
YeremiYah 17:4
We have discontinued from our heritage.
And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue from thine heritage that I gave thee; and I
will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not:
for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn for ever.

How can we living under diffrent time zones, in another Hemisphere,
In the Land of our enemies know exactly What Day is Yahweh's Appointed Days!
Look at, Jeroboam, king of Ysrael, He actually changed the dates of YAHWEH'S Holy Days when he feared that the 10 tribes of Ysrael would be drawn back to the nation of Judah and the temple in Jerusalem
(1 Kings 12:32-33).

The HOLY SCRIPTURES teaches us all The holy feast days YAHWEH commanded for us to keep. He calls them “MY FEAST DAYS ON HIS APPOINTED DAYS”. 
WE OUGHT NOT FOLLOW THE TRADITIONS OF OUR ANCESTORS FOR WHAT THEY PASSED DOWN TO US WAS WORTHLESS


I PETER 1:18
Realize that you weren't set free from the worthless life handed down to you from your ancestors by a payment of silver or gold which can be destroyed.
