My Sweet Lord

Music HighwayAs I have stated in previous posts, I used to observe annual holy days that most Christians do not keep. I kept the days found in Leviticus 23 such as the Days of Unleavened Bread, the day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and the Feast of Tabernacles. See The New and Improved Law (part 3).

I am not encouraging any of you Christians to observe any of these days. Jesus Christ fulfilled these days that belonged and were commanded
for the Old Covenant congregation of Israel
to strictly follow. Nowhere does the New
Covenant demand Christians to observe them.

I also wrongly believed these days to be prophecies
that followed a progression of events; a master plan,
that God developed for Jesus Christ to complete.
I assumed that they were meant to be still observed
today because they were not all “prophetically”
completed by Christ. I was in error.

* Yes, I was wrong. These Old Covenant days were
not prophesies which were meant to be checked off
and fulfilled by Christ, one by one.

* Yes, I now realize that these days were just that, days
– only days that were commanded only to a
nation called Israel to keep to the letter.

* I now understand these days, which were in the Old
Covenant holy with God’s presence in them, were all
fulfilled by Jesus Christ at the cross.

* I learned that I cannot keep both the Old Covenant
and the New Covenant at the same time.

If you are a Christian who is still keeping these
days, I will not judge or condemn you for doing so
according to your conscience. But, it would be your
error if you condemn other Christians for not doing
as you do (Colossians 2:16-17 NKJV).

The Coming of Jesus Christ on a White Horse (Revelation 19:11-16 NKJV)

I am sure we who understand find these days of the Old Covenant very meaningful and beautiful areas to reflect and meditate. For me, they reinforce my desire to one day soon finally see Jesus Christ as He really is and then continue enjoying and growing with Him.

This desire to actually see the Messiah has been expressed for centuries before Jesus came among us and was born of a virgin. Many, many Israelites and Jews of ancient days have longed for Him to appear and re-establish the throne of David.

When Jesus Christ does return, King David
will join Him, as well as King Hezekiah, and
several other judges and kings who once ruled
over Israel and Judah. Moses will be seen by all.
Joshua, Caleb, Elijah and Elisha will be
teaching and traveling over the land once again.

So, although I do not observe it today, this year, when the Feast of Trumpets – a.k.a. Rosh Hashanah –  and the other fall days that perhaps some of you Jews and Christians reading this observe rolls around, my thoughts will be on Christ and how I really, really want to see Him; really, really want to know Him and go with Him. It seems like a long wait, but it will not take long for Him to so accomplish what is His Father’s will.

Since I am not a member of the Hindu religion and do not know of Krishna, I have altered the lyrics of the YouTube song below, My Sweet Lord, to reflect my praise of the Lord God and Savior found in the Bible, Jesus Christ.
