Beloved, have you noticed our new Masthead? Beloved, the Bible is true and you better believe. Our Earth is FLAT , The Flat Earth Yahuwah made for usWITH A DOMED ROOF OVER IT! Circularly bordered by a massive icy wall called Antarctica. IMMOVABLE!!! ABSOLUTELY NOT SPHERICAL! They have fed us innumerable 'photos' of Earth from space! Not a single one of them is a photo! They are all computer-generated graphic images! CGIs! Copernican Theory has been fact with zero proof for millennia! The conspiracy to deceive us and take away Yahuwah from HIS Earth has failed. Big-bang theory! Darwinian Theory! Copernican Theory! - all theories, non facts and non-truths, have reigned over us for so long we came to believe that our Earth is a globe! Earth is not a globe. Dubious claims of landing on the moon have been proven to be hoaxes and lies. As NASA today is expressing the impossibility of man going to the moon as they have no answer yet of how to overcome the Van Allen Radiation Belt right above our stratosphere! Limitless Deception!

The World Calls Us Natsrim (Christian)S! But What Does the Bible Call Us?
NATSRIM - THE BRANCH; NAZARENE.
But, Does It Matter?

How did we get the name 'Natsrim (Christian)s'? Visit this Page for a full answer that will surprise and reassure you.

Vine Plant laden with Fruit
The Vine Heavy With Fruit
Yachuwchanon 15:5 - I am the Vine and Ye are the Branches ...

We need to be clear about a few points:

  • Every account of how the name 'Natsrim (Christian)' came about is only speculation. In other words, could it have been another one of the 'reproachful' names, according to the Matthew-Henry Commentary?
  • As quoted in YashaYahuw 62:2; 65:15, Yahuwah had promised to call His people by a 'new name'.
  • Should the new name be given by man or by Elohim?
  • If we are 'Natsrim (Christian)s', what about our Savior, Is He also 'Natsrim (Christian)'? We should belong together with Him. For where He is there we should be also, should we not?

THE LAW OF YAHUWAH
THE STATUTES

The Bible reveals Yahuwah's Ten Commandments, Statutes and Judgments. These are all laws targeted at different aspects of the lives of Elohim's people. The Decalogue is at the Top and umbrella to everything else, revealing the height a mind led by the Holy Spirit can reach - sinlessness, and revealing what sin is. The Statutes are designed to explain the Decalogue (Ten commandments) and guard them; and the Judgments are designed for deterrence or punishment in the event of transgression by man against man in some cases, and by man against Elohim in others.
Pentecost is a Statute

What Is a Statute:
A Statute is a written law that is formally created by a government; a written rule or regulation
-Merriam webster's Dictionary

"Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws."
Genesis 26:5 [KJV]

"Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I [am] YAHUWAH".
- Leviticus 18:5 KJV

In every generation and in every land the true foundation for character building has been the same - the principles contained in the word of Elohim. The only safe and sure rule is to do what Elohim says. "The statutes of YAHUWAH are right," and "he that doeth these things shall never be moved." Psalm 19:8; 15:5. It was with the word of Elohim that the Apostles met the false theories of their day, saying, "Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid." 1 Corinthians 3:11.
E. G. White, Acts of the Apostles, 475.2
A Joyous Occasion:
The Scriptures state that both Yahuwshuah and His Disciples were called to this marriage feast [at Cana]. Messiah has given Messiahians no sanction to say when invited to a marriage, We ought not to be present on so joyous an occasion. By attending this feast Messiah taught that He would have us rejoice with those who do rejoice in the observance of His statutes.
E. G. White, Adventist Home, p. 101
Ellen G. White
Ellen G. White
EndTime's Prophetess

The teaching which has become so wide-spread that the divine statutes are no longer binding upon men, is the same as idolatry in its effect upon the morals of the people. Those who seek to lessen the claims of Elohim's holy law are striking directly at the foundation of the government of families and nations. Religious parents, failing to walk in his statutes, do not command their household to keep the way of the Master.
- E. G. White, Natsrim (Christian) Education, 221

In consequence of continual transgression, the moral law was repeated in awful grandeur from Sinai. Messiah gave to Mosheh religious precepts which were to govern everyday life. These statutes were explicitly given to guard the ten commandments. They were not shadowy types to pass away with the death of Messiah. They were to be binding upon men in every age as long as time should last. These commands were enforced by the power of the moral law, and they clearly and definitely explained that law.
E. G. White, Review & Herald, April 15, 1875 [Reprinted in RH May 6, 1875]. And also in the Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary Vol.1, p. 1104.6}

THE LAW OF YAHUWAH
Ceremonial Law

The Ceremonial Law was the part of the Torah, that specified in great details every ritual sacrifice in the sacrificial system. The Sacrificial system was the object lesson, demonstrated day by day, all representing the coming antitypical sacrifice of the Son of Yahuwah. They included animal offerings, grain offerings, incense, oils, etc. Of these, the Bible looking forward to the death of Yahuwshuah on the Cross, said this:

And he Yahuwshuah shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, ...
Daniel 9:27 [KJV]

And after the Savior's sacrifice, Humanity was no longer permitted to do certain things. Some of which may be discerned very clearly in the following biblical passage:

Yashayahuw (Isaiah) 66:1 [KJV]
Thus saith YAHUWAH, The heaven [is] my throne, and the earth [is] my footstool: where [is] the house that ye build unto me? and where [is] the place of my rest?
Yashayahuw (Isaiah) 66:2 [KJV]
For all those [things] hath mine hand made, and all those [things] have been, saith YAHUWAH: but to this [man] will I look, [even] to [him that is] poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
Yashayahuw (Isaiah) 66:3 [KJV]
He that killeth an ox [is as if] he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, [as if] he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, [as if he offered] swine's blood; he that burneth incense, [as if] he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
Yashayahuw (Isaiah) 66:4 [KJV]
I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose [that] in which I delighted not.
Isa 66:1-4 (KJV)

Beloved, there's this thing which we have almost completely lost sight of and which on the authority of the Divine Word above, shall invariably, but avoidably, lead to the loss of many souls!

There are only three reasons given in Scripture for the killing of animals:
  1. Sacrifice
  2. Necessity
  3. Self-defence

SACRIFICIAL REASON

After Adam's creation his food was defined by his Creator Yahuwshuah in this manner:

"And Elohim said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."
Genesis 1:29 [KJV]

Adam and his family were to eat nothing but fruits, grains and nuts. But after the fall, vegetables were added to Adam's diet to enhance protein replacement as degradation and dying had taken hold of the human family.

...; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
Genesis 3:18 [KJV]

Following Adam's fall, the shedding of blood for the atonement of his sin became a life-long lesson he and his descendants must learn in preparation for the arrival of the promised seed (Genesis 3:15). But at this time, the slain animals were wholly burnt and never eaten. Their skin did aslo serve for clothing for the fallen race. Before the fall we needed no clothing. For the first 1500 years of human existence, no man ate flesh of any kind.

Unto Adam also and to his wife did Yahuwah Elohim make coats of skins, and clothed them.
Genesis 3:21 [KJV]
"The sacrificial offerings were ordained by Elohim to be to man a perpetual reminder and a penitential acknowledgment of his sin and a confession of his faith in the promised Redeemer. They were intended to impress upon the fallen race the solemn truth that it was sin that caused death. To Adam, the offering of the first sacrifice was a most painful ceremony. His hand must be raised to take life, which only Elohim could give. It was the first time he had ever witnessed death, and he knew that had he been obedient to Elohim, there would have been no death of man or beast. As he slew the innocent victim, he trembled at the thought that his sin must shed the blood of the spotless Lamb of Elohim. This scene gave him a deeper and more vivid sense of the greatness of his transgression, which nothing but the death of Elohim's dear Son could expiate. And he marveled at the infinite goodness that would give such a ransom to save the guilty. A star of hope illumined the dark and terrible future and relieved it of its utter desolation.
E. G. White, Patriarchs and Prophets, 68.1}

NECESSITY

There was the 'necessity' at the end of the global flood which destroyed all vegetation. When Noah and his co-survivors came off the Ark, there was nothing on the planet they could eat except for what was in the Ark. And after over 150 days in the Ark while the flood raged, they had with the animals with them in the Ark, depleted their stock of food! For their survival until the replanting of the earth, Yahuwah said this to them:

Gen 9:1 [KJV]
And Elohim [Elohim] blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
Gen 9:2 [KJV]
And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth [upon] the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
Gen 9:3 [KJV]
Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
Gen 9:4 [KJV]
But flesh with the life thereof, [which is] the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
Gen 9:5 [KJV]
And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.
Gen 9:6 [KJV]
Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of Elohim made he man.
Gen 9:7 [KJV]
And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
Genesis 9:1-7 (KJV)
And Noah began [to be] an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
Genesis 9:20 [KJV]

This necessity ended after the family replanted and reaped. Unfortunately the first thing recorded at the first harvest following the flood was Noah's getting drunk! It appeared that having tasted flesh foods, man would refuse to let go of flesh foods even when they are no longer required. But the consequence was the catastrophic reduction in human longevity from almost a thousand years of lifespan to just a hundred and below today!.

The second major aspect of the 'Necessity', was the need for the Sinner to partake of the 'sin offering'. This was developed at Sinai. And from Sinai, until the Cross, Man needed to eat animal flesh during the Sacrificial process.
But when the Savior died on the Cross, the Flood and Sacrifices became eternal history. Thus the need for the Bible to warn that slaying animals after the Cross would be viewed by Heaven as 'Murder'. All who today are killing animals for food or parting of the flesh as killed by another, are guilty of murder. And the blood of those animals shall be required at their hands.

(Lev 17:3 [KJV])
What man soever [there be] of the house of Israel, that killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp (at home), or that killeth [it] out of the camp,
(Lev 17:4 [KJV])
And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an offering unto YAHUWAH before the tabernacle of YAHUWAH; blood shall be imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people:
Leviticus 17:3-4 (KJV)

The killing of any animal which has not been presented to Yahuwah at HIS Tabernacle, is expressly forbidden. We do not have any right or reason today to kill animals other than in self-defence. Think about this.

"Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them."
- Psalms 119:165 [KJV]

YAHUWAH'S HOLIDAYS IN HISTORY

Yahuwah's Feast Days in History

Historical Divine Holidays

There were three annual assemblies of all Israel for worship at the sanctuary. Exodus 23:14-16. Shiloh was for a time the place of these gatherings; but Yerushalayim afterward became the center of the nation's worship, and here the tribes convened for the solemn feasts.

The people were surrounded by fierce, warlike tribes, that were eager to seize upon their lands; yet three times every year all the able-bodied men and all the people who could make the journey were directed to leave their homes and repair to the place of assembly, near the center of the land. What was to hinder their enemies from sweeping down upon those unprotected households, to lay them waste with fire and sword? What was to prevent an invasion of the land, that would bring Israel into captivity to some foreign foe? . . . [Yahuwah] had promised to be the protector of His people. "The angel of [Yahuwah] encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them." Psalm 34:7. While the Israelites went up to worship, divine power would place a restraint upon their enemies. . . . [Yahuwah's] promise was, "I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before . . . [Yahuwah thy Elohim] thrice in the year." Exodus 34:24.

The first of these festivals, the Passover, the feast of unleavened bread, occurred in Abib, the first month of the Jewish year, corresponding to the last of March and the beginning of April. The cold of winter was past, the latter rain had ended, and all nature rejoiced in the freshness and beauty of the springtime. The grass was green on the hills and valleys, and wild flowers everywhere brightened the fields. The moon, now approaching the full, made the evenings delightful. It was the season so beautifully pictured by the sacred singer:

"The winter is past, The rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; The time of the singing of birds is come, And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree ripeneth her green figs, And the vines are in blossom, They give forth their fragrance."
Song of Solomon 2:11-13, R.V.

Throughout the land bands of pilgrims were making their way toward Yerushalayim. The shepherds from their flocks, the herdsmen from the mountains, fishers from the Sea of Galilee, the husbandmen from their fields, and sons of the prophets from the sacred schools - all turned their steps toward the place where . . . [Yahuwah's] presence was revealed. They journeyed by short stages, for many went on foot. The caravans were constantly receiving accessions, and often became very large before reaching the Holy City.

Nature's gladness awakened joy in the hearts of Israel and gratitude to the Giver of all good. The grand Hebrew psalms were chanted, exalting the glory and majesty of [Yahuwah]. At the sound of the signal trumpet, with the music of cymbals, the chorus of thanksgiving arose, swelled by hundreds of voices:

"I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go unto the house of the Lord. Our feet are standing Within thy gates, O Yerushalayim. . . . Whither the tribes go up, even the tribes of . . . [Elohim], . . . To give thanks unto the name of [Yahuwah]. . . . Pray for the peace of Yerushalayim: They shall prosper that love thee."
Psalm 122:1-6, R.V.

As they saw around them the hills where the heathen had been wont to kindle their altar fires, the children of Israel sang:

"Shall I lift up mine eyes to the hills? Whence should my help come? My help cometh from [Yahuwah], Which made heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1, 2 (margin). "They that trust in . . . [Yahuwah] Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abideth forever. As the mountains are round about Yerushalayim, So . . . [Yahuwah] is round about His people, From this time forth and forevermore." Psalm 125:1, 2, R.V.

Surmounting the hills in view of the Holy City, they looked with reverent awe upon the throngs of worshipers wending their way to the temple. They saw the smoke of the incense ascending, and as they heard the trumpets of the Levites heralding the sacred service, they caught the inspiration of the hour, and sang:

"Great is . . . [Yahuwah], and greatly to be praised In the city of our . . . [Elohim], in the mountain of His holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north, The city of the great King." Psalm 48:1, 2.

"Peace be within thy walls, And prosperity within thy palaces." "Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise . . . [Yahuwah]." "I will pay my vows unto . . . [Yahuwah] Now in the presence of all His people, In the courts of . . . [Yahuwah's] house, In the midst of thee, O Yerushalayim, Praise ye . . . [Yahuwah]." Psalm 122:7; 118:19; 116:18, 19.

All the houses in Yerushalayim were thrown open to the pilgrims, and rooms were furnished free; but this was not sufficient for the vast assembly, and tents were pitched in every available space in the city and upon the surrounding hills.

On the fourteenth day of the month, at even, the Passover was celebrated, its solemn, impressive ceremonies commemorating the deliverance from bondage in Egypt, and pointing forward to the sacrifice that should deliver from the bondage of sin. When the Saviour yielded up His life on Calvary, the significance of the Passover ceased, and the ordinance of the Lord's Supper was instituted as a memorial of the same event of which the Passover had been a type.

The Passover was followed by the seven day's feast of unleavened bread. The first and the seventh day were days of holy convocation, when no servile work was to be performed. On the second day of the feast, the first fruits of the year's harvest were presented before . . . [Yahuwah]. Barley was the earliest grain in Palestine, and at the opening of the feast it was beginning to ripen. A sheaf of this grain was waved by the priest before the altar of . . . [Yahuwah], as an acknowledgment that all was His. Not until this ceremony had been performed was the harvest to be gathered.

[In the fourth month came] . . . the Pentecost, called also the feast of harvest and the feast of weeks. As an expression of gratitude for the grain prepared as food, two loaves baked with leaven were presented before . . . [Yahuwah]. The Pentecost occupied but one day, which was devoted to religious service.

In the seventh month came the Feast of Tabernacles, or of ingathering. This feast acknowledged . . . [Yahuwah's] bounty in the products of the orchard, the olive grove, and the vineyard. It was the crowning festal gathering of the year. The land had yielded its increase, the harvests had been gathered into the granaries, the fruits, the oil, and the wine had been stored, the first fruits had been reserved, and now the people came with their tributes of thanksgiving to . . . [Yahuwah], who had thus richly blessed them.

This feast was to be pre-eminently an occasion of rejoicing. It occurred just after the great Day of Atonement, when the assurance had been given that their iniquity should be remembered no more. At peace with . . . [Yahuwah], they now came before Him to acknowledge His goodness and to praise Him for His mercy. The labors of the harvest being ended, and the toils of the new year not yet begun, the people were free from care, and could give themselves up to the sacred, joyous influences of the hour. Though only the fathers and sons were commanded to appear at the feasts, yet, so far as possible, all the household were to attend them, and to their hospitality the servants, the Levites, the stranger, and the poor were made welcome.

Like the Passover, the Feast of Tabernacles was commemorative. In memory of their pilgrim life in the wilderness the people were now to leave their houses and dwell in booths, or arbors, formed from the green branches "of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook." Leviticus 23:40, 42, 43.

The first day was a holy convocation, and to the seven days of the feast an eighth day was added, which was observed in like manner [with additional sacrifices (See Numbers 29:35-38) which are more than those for the ‘regular’ weekly Sabbaths (Numbers 28:9-10)].

At these yearly assemblies the hearts of old and young would be encouraged in the service of . . . [Yahuwah], while the association of the people from the different quarters of the land would strengthen the ties that bound them to . . . [Yahuwah] and to one another. Well would it be for the people of . . . [Yahuwah] at the present time to have a Feast of Tabernacles--a joyous commemoration of the blessings of . . . [Yahuwah] to them. As the children of Israel celebrated the deliverance that . . . [Yahuwah] had wrought for their fathers, and His miraculous preservation of them during their journeyings from Egypt, so should we gratefully call to mind the various ways He has devised for bringing us out from the world, and from the darkness of error, into the precious light of His grace and truth.

With those who lived at a distance from the tabernacle, more than a month of every year must have been occupied in attendance upon the annual feasts. This example of devotion to . . . [Yahuwah] should emphasize the importance of religious worship and the necessity of subordinating our selfish, worldly interests to those that are spiritual and eternal. We sustain a loss when we neglect the privilege of associating together to strengthen and encourage one another in the service of . . . [Yahuwah]. The truths of His word lose their vividness and importance in our minds. Our hearts cease to be enlightened and aroused by the sanctifying influence, and we decline in spirituality. In our intercourse as Natsrim (Christian)s we lose much by lack of sympathy with one another. He who shuts himself up to himself is not filling the position that . . . [Yahuwah] designed he should. We are all children of one Father, dependent upon one another for happiness. The claims of . . . [Yahuwah] and of humanity are upon us. It is the proper cultivation of the social elements of our nature that brings us into sympathy with our brethren and affords us happiness in our efforts to bless others.

The Feast of Tabernacles was not only commemorative but typical. It not only pointed back to the wilderness sojourn, but, as the feast of harvest, it celebrated the ingathering of the fruits of the earth, and pointed forward to the great day of final ingathering, when the . . . [Master] of the harvest shall send forth His reapers to gather the tares together in bundles for the fire, and to gather the wheat into His garner. At that time the wicked will all be destroyed. They will become "as though they had not been." Obadiah 16. And every voice in the whole universe will unite in joyful praise to . . . [Yahuwah]. Says the revelator, "Every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever." Revelation 5:13.

The people of Israel praised . . . [Yahuwah] at the Feast of Tabernacles, as they called to mind His mercy in their deliverance from the bondage of Egypt and His tender care for them during their pilgrim life in the wilderness. They rejoiced also in the consciousness of pardon and acceptance, through the service of the day of atonement, just ended. But when the ransomed of the . . . [Father] shall have been safely gathered into the heavenly Canaan, forever delivered from the bondage of the curse, under which "the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" (Romans 8:22), they will rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. . . . [Yahushua's] great work of atonement for men will then have been completed, and their sins will have been forever blotted out.

"The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; And the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: The glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, The excellency of Carmel and Sharon; They shall see the glory of . . . [Yahuwah], and the excellency of our . . . [Elohim].

"Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, And the tongue of the dumb sing: "For in the wilderness shall waters break out, And streams in the desert. And the parched ground shall become a pool, And the thirsty land springs of water: . . . "And an highway shall be there, and a way, And it shall be called The way of holiness; The unclean shall not pass over it; But it shall be for those: The wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

"No lion shall be there, Nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, It shall not be found there; But the redeemed shall walk there: "And the ransomed of . . . [Yahuwah] shall return, And come to Zion with songs And everlasting joy upon their heads: They shall obtain joy and gladness, And sorrow and sighing shall flee away." Isaiah 35:1, 2, 5-10.

THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY SPEAKS

In every generation and in every land the true foundation for character building has been the same--the principles contained in the word of Elohim. The only safe and sure rule is to do what Elohim says. "The statutes of YAHUWAH are right," and "he that doeth these things shall never be moved." Psalm 19:8; 15:5. It was with the word of Elohim that the apostles met the false theories of their day, saying, "Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid." 1 Corinthians 3:11.
E. G. White, Acts of the Apostles, 475.2}
A Joyous Occasion.--The Scriptures state that both Yahuwshuah and His disciples were called to this marriage feast [at Cana]. Messiah has given Messiahians no sanction to say when invited to a marriage, We ought not to be present on so joyous an occasion. By attending this feast Messiah taught that He would have us rejoice with those who do rejoice in the observance of His statutes.

The teaching which has become so wide-spread that the divine statutes are no longer binding upon men, is the same as idolatry in its effect upon the morals of the people. Those who seek to lessen the claims of Elohim's holy law are striking directly at the foundation of the government of families and nations. Religious parents, failing to walk in his statutes, do not command their household to keep the way of the Master.
- E. G. White, Natsrim (Christian) Education, 221

In consequence of continual transgression, the moral law was repeated in awful grandeur from Sinai. Messiah gave to Moses religious precepts which were to govern everyday life. These statutes were explicitly given to guard the ten commandments. They were not shadowy types to pass away with the death of Messiah. They were to be binding upon men in every age as long as time should last. These commands were enforced by the power of the moral law, and they clearly and definitely explained that law.

YAHUWAH'S FEASTS IN THE END AND INTO ETERNITY

(Matt 26:26 [KJV]) And as they were eating, Yahuwshuah took bread, and blessed [it], and brake [it], and gave [it] to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. (Matt 26:27 [KJV]) And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave [it] to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; (Matt 26:28 [KJV]) For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Matt 26:29 [KJV]) But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
(Matt 26:26 - 29 [KJV])

The Passover, the Master's Supper, which ever way you approach it, represents HIS death on the Cross of Calvary. This is a historical fact. A fact which terminated forever, the slaughter of hapless animals for sacrifice. It was the perfect fulfilment of everything in scripture that had anything to do with Sacrifices. Yet this very Feast, which one can be excused in assuming that it is in the past, is declared by the Savior to be celebrated in Heaven and the eternal 'Kingdom'. It is eternal.

With the above, is there any justification for anyone taking the position that fulfilment in the Plan of Salvation signified termination of the Feasts? certainly not.

For each Feast, scripture declares: a law forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.
