Jesus, apostles observed Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur
While some evangelical leaders and politicians are urging Christians to commemorate the Islamic holiday of Ramadan, one pastor is calling on believers to join with Jews around the world next Friday in observing Rosh Hoshana – or the Feast of Trumpets.
Mark Biltz, who specializes in teaching the Hebrew roots of Christianity, says the biblical feasts in the fall and spring calendar are not just, as commonly believed, "Jewish holidays."
"These are not Jewish holidays, they are the Lord's holidays," explains Biltz, who has recorded teaching videos, "The Feasts of the Lord," for WND...
"The Feasts of the Lord" have special meaning and significance for all believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, says Biltz. They were commemorated by Jesus and His apostles – and continued to be observed by Jesus' followers in the first century even after His death and Resurrection. They also have special meaning with respect to the life, death, resurrection and return of Jesus, he points out.
There's still time to learn these important lessons before the fall feasts are past.
Rosh Hashana begins Friday night, Sept. 18 this year. It is followed by Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, Sept. 27.
"I believe these DVDs can profoundly increase the faith of followers of Jesus, giving them a new appreciation of who He is, why He came and what He expects of us," says Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WND and the producer of the video series. "I think most people who view these teachings by Pastor Mark Biltz will be stunned by what they learn about the meaning of these feasts in our lives."

On the contrary, says "The Feasts of the Lord," the Bible is quite specific about the day of His return –...
