For an explanation of these days, write for my booklet, “Yahweh’s Holy Days vs. Man’s Holidays” It explains Yahweh’s Plan of Salvation which is based on the agricultural harvest seasons in the land of Israel, and shows that most of the holidays and festivals celebrated by the world in general, and Christians in particular, are not based on Scripture but have pagan roots. This and other booklets are free to you because of the generosity of others. Write for our newly revised list of available literature ~

 

Also, If you are confined and cannot attend a Feast site, write for an article titled, “How to Keep Yahweh’s Annual Festivals when You Cannot Meet with Others,” and use it as a guide. It explains what these days mean in Yahweh’s Plan of Salvation, and tells you what to do and what to study that is relevant to that particular day or Festival.

 

But be sure that you really cannot physically obey Yahweh’s command in Deuteronomy 16:16, which says, “Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before Yahweh thy Elohim 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

Some think they might have difficulty getting time off from their job, or have other reasons for not attending a Feast site, thinking they can keep them at home just as well. But Deut 12:17-18 and Deut 16:1-17 speaks against this idea. The Apostles said “We should obey Yahweh rather than men.”

I personally have lost at least one job because my request for time off was denied, although it had been promised the year before when I went to work there (in 1967, Whirlpool Purchasing Dep’t., Fort Smith, AR). I considered my obedience to Yahweh more important than the job.

Others take a different view, and do keep the High Sabbaths with others, but then work on the intervening non-holy days. I do not judge those who do this. We are each responsible for our own salvation; we should not judge another man’s servant (Rom. 14:4). ~
