easter vs passover (general)

posted by NAPHTALI, 03.20.2008

Shalom All;
Most Gentiles are not aware that Paul told the Corinthian Gentiles to Keep Passover: 1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us: 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
The Feast Days are NOT the Feast Days of the Jews or of Moses, they are the Feast Days of the Lord.
The initial requirements put on the Gentiles in the Book of Acts, were just that, initial. Paul clearly went on to teach the Saturday Shabbat, and Rosh Chodesh (New Moon) Festivals and told his readers not to let people discourage you from celebrating these feasts: KJV Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days:. Paul was beginning to teach all of Torah.
Indeed there is no New Covenant as one cannot be grafted into a cultivate3d olive tree NIV Romans 11:24 After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree! (Which takes a very long time to cultivate) and simultaneously have a New Covenant; the ideas are oxymoronic and mutually exclusive.

In Scriptural terms the first use of the Greek word ekklesia is in the Septuagint and is rendered the Assembly of the Lord. Oddly if this had appeared in the NT the gentile translators would have rendered it the church of the Lord. Paul was grafting gentiles into an existing ekklesia --- the ekklesia of Israel. Hence the Bibles insistence on having ONE LAW. Feast Days not delineated in scripture are essentially man-made creations, very similar to the fact that denominations are departures from the ekklesia of Israel.
