My children, there is much confusion among my flock regarding My Holy Feast days, so for those with ears to hear, please listen closely to My words…
“I CHANGE NOT”. “I am the same yesterday, today, and forever!”Therefore, what mattered to Me yesterday, still matters to Me today, and will still matter to Me tomorrow.
These feasts that many of you so easily dismiss as just a “Jewish” thing or an “Old Testament” thing, still very much matter to Me! They matter because they are My appointed times….Special days set apart long ago, so that My chosen ones could gather in repentance, prayer, and thanksgiving to celebrate/praise/worship Me as their Redeemer and Lord who remains in everlasting covenant with them.
Many do not yet understand the significance of My Holy Days or why they even matter, but as I have often told this daughter of mine when she seeks the deeper things of Me, “It’s the glory of God to conceal a thing but the honor of kings to search out a matter.” Those of you who will truly rule and reign in My Kingdom will surely not dismiss this as just a “Jewish” thing, but rather will seek Me to guide you further in all truth. Why does it matter you ask??…the answer is simply because what matters to Me should matter to you! Your greatest desire should be to please Me and keep My commandments. My appointed times DO matter, children, and this includes keeping My Sabbath holy!
If you love Me, keep my commandments. The first of which is to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. Again, this includes honoring My Sabbath AND observing My appointed feasts, not the man made traditions and pagan holidays many of you currently follow and keep without fail!
As you begin to study each of My feasts/holy days, you will learn what each one is and how it perfectly fits into My plan to sanctify and redeem a Holy people unto Myself.
I am a God of order, children, and I CHANGE NOT…those who earnestly seek Me shall find Me!
***Brothers and Sisters,
Below are some links I found helpful and informative in explaining the different Feasts of the Lord as well as on how/when to observe the Sabbath. Please take this to the Lord in prayer for confirmation and further guidance!

8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.”
Leviticus 23:3 – (AMP)

12 “You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but on the seventh day you must stop working. This gives your ox and your donkey a chance to rest. It also allows your slaves and the foreigners living among you to be refreshed.”
14 “Each year you must celebrate three festivals in my honor. 15 First, celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread. For seven days the bread you eat must be made without yeast, just as I commanded you. Celebrate this festival annually at the appointed time in early spring, in the month of Abib, for that is the anniversary of your departure from Egypt. No one may appear before me without an offering. 16“Second, celebrate the Festival of Harvest, when you bring me the first crops of your harvest. “Finally, celebrate the Festival of the Final Harvest at the end of the harvest season, when you have harvested all the crops from your fields. 17 At these three times each year, every man in Israel must appear before the Sovereign, the Lord.”
Matthew 5:19 - (NLT)

14“This day shall be for you a memorial day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord; throughout your generations, as a statute forever, you shall keep it as a feast.”
