Excellent work! Christ Jesus is our perfect root, not the chronically idolatrous physical descendants of Abraham as those caught up in the mysticism of the "Hebrew Roots" movement would have us believe. It is indeed a strong delusion!

so many pastors are simply motivational speakers who only reference one -3 verses briefly in a sermon to boost up their motivational speech. Mike winger is actually a teacher of the word of God ! hard to find and I feel like I need to watch his sermons more than once because they are heavy but good.

I have friends who admire and follow parts of the Jewish Sabbath, for example, blessing their children and eating meals together, prayer and contemplation. However, some of them believe we are told by Christ to follow Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, as in from Friday at sundown to Saturday sundown. I've heard one say it is in the NT. Can you please talk about this and clarify what Christ followers should be doing in terms of this? They said that Christians just ignore it. They don't think you need to follow any other Jewish laws, such as head coverings or dietary restrictions though, so they are not fully subscribed to the Hebrew Roots Movement.

Could anyone give me a timeline with the time of day of Jesus' death and resurrection and how it relates to the feasts and sabbaths during that time, just so I can have it in one place? I cant remember right now but there are some verses that make the timeline sorta fuzzy concerning what was being celebrated.

Fall Festivals Unfulfilled

Isaiah 60 tells of the re-gathering of His people from around the world. He promises untold glory for those who remain steadfast. In Isaiah 61 we find the same verse that Yahshua quoted when He began His public ministry.

“The Spirit of Yahweh is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the Good News to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To preach the acceptable year of Yahweh,” Luke 4:18-19.

Yahshua stopped in the middle of the second verse. But it is obvious that He was speaking of the sabbatical year in this prophecy. Yahweh always brings events about according to His timetable. Passover has been fulfilled twice, as has Pentecost or the Feast of Weeks. But the Feasts of the seventh month have never been fulfilled. Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles are awaiting fulfillment and Yahweh un-doubtedly will be right on schedule.

His feast days help us remember His plan of redemption, which we are reminded of at three harvest times during the year. The fall moedim begin a time of tribulation and foreshadow the deception of the false prophet and the iron grip of the man of sin. These festivals go on to remind us of the coming Kingdom of Yahweh where His law and government will rule the world.

Temporarily dwelling in succoth or shelters, as we are commanded of Yahweh at Tabernacles, reminds us that we are but sojourners and travelers in this world. Our real goal is to be in that Kingdom wherein is righteousness and where the entire world will be keeping His Sabbaths and His laws, Isaiah 66:23. We are merely passing through this present veil of tears, knowing that a tabernacle represents our temporary dwelling on earth.

“For the leaders of this people cause them to err: and they that are led of them are destroyed,” Isaiah 9:16.

We today have the greatest opportunity ever to worship Yahweh in spirit and in truth. We have more study resources to prove the truth of the Bible than did any generation before us.

In spite of these advantages, most are more ignorant of the Scriptures than those of Jeremiah’s time. Few desire to search out the truth of the Bible as they should. The difficulty comes when they ignore or work their way around the plain statements of obedience.

Almighty Yahweh is not pleased with His creation of humans when they refuse to do what He expects. What a disappointment man must be to Him –defiantly insisting that he doesn’t need to obey the precepts Yahweh established for man’s own protection and happiness.

Knowing and loving Yahweh means doing what He asks, just as a child shows love and respect to his parents by obeying them – and they love him all the more in return.

By obeying Yahweh’s commands, including the observance of the seventh-month festivals, we show that we indeed want His awesome blessings. We want the awesome promises of rulership with Him in His Kingdom that come only by proving that we first will obey Him.

John wrote. “But whoso keeps His word, in him verily is the love of Elohim perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him,” John 2:5.

The Feast of Tabernacles is a taste of the Kingdom on earth. You can have a foretaste of that joyous Kingdom today. Decide right now to be closer to your Heavenly Father. Join us for the Feast of Tabernacles. Find out what happiness comes in living for Yahweh, rather than just talking about it!

Yahweh has a different plan for the planet, which will begin with the return of Yahshua to wrest global control from a Beast empire that will be in power for only a few years.

The perennial prize, Jerusalem, will not be his for long before Yahshua returns, which is exactly where He will return to: “And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives…” (Zech. 14:4). Once He takes control, Yahshua will immediately implement His righteous rule and Yahweh’s holy laws will be enforced from Jerusalem. Notice the first thing that is required of all people everywhere on earth once He takes the earthly throne: “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles” (14:16).

Feast or Famine – the Coming Choice

But what if the world’s masses refuse to comply, just as vast millions today choose not to keep Yahweh’s Feasts in obedience? “And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain” (v. 17).

Those who resist the command­ment to keep His Feasts will soon discover that Yahweh will, by force, change attitudes. “And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith Yahweh will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.” Everyone, including the heathen, will be required to attend His Feasts!

Yahweh could not be more serious. He is so adamant that we observe His Feasts that He is willing to punish with starvation and death those who refuse.

Yahshua’s first millennial act as earthly King is to enforce the keeping of Yahweh’s Feasts. Clearly His Feasts are not optional now and will not be optional when He is in control. His directive is not a casual one. He expects us to put Him first and make time for His Feasts! He expects us to put aside a tithe in order to attend His Feasts, (Deut. 14:23). He expects us to take off work and school to attend His Feasts. He expects us, His people, to be examples of true obedience to the rest of the world.

Yahweh’s Feasts are part of His royal laws, and are just as obligatory as the Ten Commandments. Law is law. We don’t decide which laws of His we will keep and which we will ignore, anymore than we decide which laws of society we will abide by and which ones we will not obey. All laws are in full force and effect at all times. In the same way all of Yahweh’s commands are obligatory for those who seek life everlasting. In Matthew 19:17 Yahshua said, “But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.”

Break One, Break Them All

Believers faithfully keep the weekly Sabbath holy because it is part of the law. For some reason, however, they don’t see that the Feasts are just as binding as His Fourth Command­ment. They were all given at Sinai! They have not come to terms with the fact that the Feasts are just as essential as the clean food laws and just as important as revering and calling on His revealed, true Name.

Implicit in the Sabbath command is the command to keep ALL Sabbaths – weekly and annual.

Because with Yahweh there is no difference when it comes to His laws, ignoring the Feast commands is no different from working on the Sabbath. This means that even fastidious weekly Sabbath keeping can be voided out by nonobservance of the Feasts.

Knowing the Truth means living the Truth or else it means nothing. We are not given to understand His great statutes and judgments and then not apply what we know.

Yahshua reminded us, “Many will say to me in that day, Master, Master, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity,” Matthew 7:22-23. Iniquity is anomia and means “the condition of being without law.”

Imagine the utter shock on the faces of those who thought that they had an automatic “in” with Yahweh because they thought they were blessed in their lives as believers – only to find out that their lacka­daisical attitude when it came to Yahweh’s laws barred them from the Kingdom!

Yahweh’s Feasts, Not Jewish Feasts

We live in the time of the great falling away when all of Yahweh’s commandments and laws are being cast aside wholesale. Only a few, known as the Chosen, will be obedi­ent to all commanded observances.

In an attempt to excuse themselves from keeping His com­manded days, many will call His Sabbath and Feasts “Jewish.” Yet, Yahweh defined these observances in Leviticus 23 as “My Feasts.” They transcend every religion and race because they don’t belong to any one people. They are Yahweh’s and therefore are commanded for all people on earth in every era of man’s entire history.

Yahshua knew all of this, of course, and kept the Feasts all His days on earth. In John 7:14-16 we find Yahshua observing the Feast of Tabernacles. His example is for us. He said in John 12:26, “If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.”

Just as ancient Israel was called out of Egypt to keep His Feast in the wilderness (Ex. 3:18; 5:1; Hosea 11:1), so Yahweh is calling out a people from the world today to observe His Feast days. He has grand plans for those who obey. We read of them in Revelation 1:6, “And has made us kings and priests unto Yahweh his Father.”

For those who still think His Feasts are optional, Yahshua gave a pointed lesson about His own expectations in the parable of five wise and five foolish virgins in Matthew 25. The wise had oil in their lamps and were prepared for the Bridegroom when He came for the wedding Feast. The five others were foolish because they were not ready. They didn’t take their responsibility seriously. Obedient preparation meant little to them initially.

But when it finally dawned on them that the Bridegroom was really coming they begged oil of the five wise virgins. Suddenly it became very important to them that they be ready and found worthy because they realized it meant the difference between being accepted and being rejected by the Bridegroom.

Will you be prepared? Will He reward you with a position in His Kingdom because you proved your worthiness by your obedience to His commands? Only you can answer that question. Rest assured, though, that question is being answered for you right now in whether you honor His commands to obey and follow the Savior’s examples, including joining the saints each year at His commanded Feasts.

While it is easy for a christian to see these festivals as types and shadows, the old testament does not view them principally as allegories. They stand on their own merit.

There is a really good free online book that can be downloaded from Facebook in PDF form titled, Sabbath to Sukkot. It's a really good read.

It is a strange twist of circumstance that while Jesus encourages his followers to eat unleavened bread to remember him most churches use regular bread.

At the original Pentecost Jewish tradition and scripture maintain it was a mixed multitude of Jew and non Jew. Jewish tradition however explains how the Torah was spoken by God in seventy languages so all could understand. It is explained this way also in the targums.

There actually is clarity to what you say. That was a word I heard the Bethel church use the word 'clarity' in your video on them, and it was mud on the wind shield. You remind me of the pastor of my church. Connecting old and new testament, and skipping past the parts where the body is momentarily flesh focused. Praise Jesus, he fills us with his word, we build our foundation on his word, and he is the foundation of life and existence. I'm glad it's not rare to find a Jesus pastor.

In the video you assert that the feast of first fruits is always on a sunday however this may not necessarily be true. Early Judaism held a diverse set of opinions as the Hebrew as to when to bring the first fruits of the barley harvest is ambiguous in that it says after the sabbath… Now the question is, is it referring to the weekly sabbath or the festival sabbath. For the early church the Septuagint was the default old testament and that appears to indicate that the Leviticus 23 text has the festival sabbath in mind and therefore the first fruits of the barley harvest can fall on any day of the week as passover can fall on any say of the week.

Thanks so much for discussing this. You are very enjoyable to watch and listen tp. But…

PLEASE NOTE: Christ's Sabbath is 1000 years. That means each creative day was 7000 years long. So when God said in his anger the Jews of the Exodus would not enter his rest, meant none of them would enter the 1000-year reign of Christ. That meant none of them would be part of the first resurrection, as would Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and others. The 1st resurrection is the "better" resurrection that Moses hoped for.

After the Sabbath of 1000 years and after Satan is let out of the abyss to create a rebellion and then destroyed, Judgment Day occurs. That day, all the dead come back to life to be judged. The righteous and the unrighteous will come back, including the Jews of the Exodus.

Per radiocarbon-14 dating and 1947 being the year of the 70th and final jubilee, the Exodus is dated to 1386 BCE. If Adam was 30 years old when Eve was created and God rested immediately after her creation, ending the 6th creative day, 6000 years into the 7th creative day would end around 2132 AD. So there is still plenty of time before the final Sabbath of 1000 years is to begin.

PASSOVER: Passover is eaten on the first day of unleavened bread, so it is always eaten on a Sabbath day. The date changed at midnight, so Passover is eaten until midnight on the 14th. But at midnight (i.e. "morning") it became the 15th. The same day the Jews eat Passover is the same day they have the festival of unleavened bread at the temple. IT IS NOT TWO SEPARATE DAYS. Why would the Jews celebrate leaving Egypt on the day after they actually left. Jesus was thus arrested on the 15th of Nisan.

As you stated, the seven days of unleavened bread begins on the FOURTEENTH in the evening.

The lambs are killed at the temple starting at 3 p.m. on a day of preparation. Jesus died at 3 p.m. on a day of preparation. The lambs were killed just before the 1st day of unleavened bread; Jesus was killed just before the 7th day of unleavened bread on Thursday, Nisan 20th.

The key to understanding this is to realize the Jews changed the date midnight. When God commanded the Passover meal to end before "morning" it was talking the time the angel of death came at midnight.

Just as the day of atonement is celebrated from "evening to evening" from the evening of the 9th to the evening of the 10th, the 1st day of unleavened bread is celebrated from the evening of the fourteenth to the evening of the fifteenth. So the festival of unleavened bread on the 15th is the afternoon of the same night before that they ate Passover. PASSOVER IS ALWAYS EATEN ON THE SABBATH DAY OF THE FIRST DAY OF UNLEAVENED BREAD.

Jesus, therefore, died on the following Thursday, Nisan 20th, being in the grave THREE NIGHTS.

Charlie Smith - posted on February 26, 2019 7:23 am

FIRST FRUITS is not in the middle of the week, it is on the 16th, the day after the Passover Sabbath. Why can't you check that out on a Jewish calendar? In 33 CE it did happen to fall on a Sunday, but it doesn't always fall on a Sunday. Again, the Sabbath day in reference is the high-sabbath of the 1st day of unleavened bread.

The first wave offering without leavening represents Christ's sinless body of the 1st coming. Pentecost represents Christ at the second coming when Christ seals the saints into the kingdom. So both Christ and the saints represent the two loaves. But both loaves are with leaven, because Christ is also in an imperfect man's sinful body at the second coming.

1 CORINTHIANS 15: Note that Paul says at the first resurrection, the body is not ressurrcted, only the bare grain of a person. The bare grain is a person's personality and memories. Those memories are implanted into a body chosen for it by God. Each seed gets its own body. But these bodies are bodies of corruption, dishonor and weakness. Meaning ordinary sinful bodies of modern saints. So the resurrected saints share the modern body of a living saint. Jesus is also implanted into the body of an ordinary man. So 1 John 3:2 says that the resurrected saints won't know precisely who they will be, but Christ will be just like them and they will see Christ directly.

So the symbolism is quite clear. Christ will be high priest Joshua, an imperfect man, the suffering servant of Isaiah 53.

The 1st ressurrection, because it implants the memory of saints into the minds of modern saints is completely invisible. 1 Corinthians 15:36 and 37 says you don't sow the body, but the bare grain.

Holy spirit comes after 3 days, nor after 10 days. Pentecost also reflects Christ at the second coming. Christ fulfilled the firstfruits twice. There is a second coming.

The unleavened bread represents Christ's body at the second coming, a body with leaven.

I've been struggling with Christmas, Easter , the Sabbath, these days have rebadged the pagan holidays. Are we not just being fooled into celebrating Satan's days. Is there a Religion that uses the Jewish calendar and recognizes Jesus as the Messiah? The actual birth of Christ, rising of Christ, Sabbath are already Jewish holidays.

Charlyn Woolley - posted on February 27, 2019 10:46 pm

Curious on how you figure Pentecost and the giving of the law are not at the same time…Exodus 19 clearly states that Moses went up the mountain during the 3rd month. Passover is during the first month (Nisan), so Shavuot does occur during the third month. (Sivan)

I just recently gave my FULL life to Christ and have been seeking him in his WORD through prayer and fasting for almost two years now. I fell 50 ft and broke my back 5 years ago at the Navy SEAL and SWCC Obstacle course in Coronado and was divinely spared once again, as you can imagine one reflects on his 16 months in a combat zone without a scratch on him… How Jesus MUST have not only my back, but plans for my life. I would love to talk to you sometime and just tell you brother to brother, thank you so much for Gods heart cry for His people. I am one of them and am "IN" Christ now chain breaking many generations of family abuse and distention from our Lord and Savior… Not this family, As for me and my house we will Worship and Praise Jesus writing His word on our foreheads and doorways..

Mike. Leviticus 23:6 and 7. I am certain that verse 7 means the first day of feast of unleavened bread is a Sabbath. This is how we know Jesus was crucified on a Wednesday. The very first day after Passover was a Sabbath correct?

He makes a mistake at 49:00 regarding the parallel of the giving of the law at Sinai and Pentecost. He makes the mistake of confusing Pentecost and Passover. The tradition (and text of Scripture – Ex 19:1) is that the law giving happened on the Feast of Weeks (which seems likely based on Scripture – Ex 19:1) but then he brings in PASSOVER. Other than that, much good info and thumbs up : )

K. Day - posted on September 15, 2019 5:14 pm

People dont understand the significance of Yeshuas struggle the Thursday (14th of the month) in the garden. It was actually the correct passover day given to Moses. Yeshua kept ALL spring feasts days perfectly. He died to his carnal flesh on Thursday. But, due to his obedience (blood and sweat) the death angel passed over him. That was the point. The feast days were fulfilled spiritually not literally. The catholic church inserted pagan doctrines in the story. The transfiguration happened in the garden that night when he was "raised from spiritual death" and became an immortal and glorified. The OT martyrs came out of the grave as well (naked boy in white linen burial cloth) and the earthquake (soldiers fell down) Peter's turns the sword on the soldier. (He who lives by the sword will die by the sword: Judas). Then the type for Hamans noose is turned to Judas. His deciples run away. Friday night Jesus appears to Mary, appears on the road to emmaus for unleavened bread, as well as the martyrs seen around town. Sunday the martyrs that rose on Thursaday and Yeshua ascend to heaven, Yeshua first then the martyers. The two men that speak to peter james and John are moses and elijah who were at the transfiguration on Thursday, risen also, the first of the firstfruits. The real story is much more awesome and didnt require terrible torture and a bloody human sacrifice as the pagans did. Just like Issac was spared, so was Yeshua.
