    Yeshua encourages all to follow the path they are on (Revelation 22:11), let the one who does wrong, still do wrong, and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness. On the other hand, the Jewish Feast days are like the the fig tree, that when they put "forth its leaves, you know that summer is near" (Matthew 4:32). The alternative, is to be like "head of the household" who did not know what time the thief was coming, and couldn't prevent his house from being broke into (Matthew 24:43).

    If you actually read the OP, I had the "Feast of Tabernacles", which is called the "Feast of Ingathering", which is the 15th day of the 7th month (Leviticus 23:34), following Passover, the 14th of the 1st month, by over 5 months. Apparently, I didn't make myself clear but this is what I wrote:

    That Passover is just coming up, and foretells the timeline for the next fleeing from the kings of the nations Zechariah 14:5, and when leaven is supposed to thrown out of the house. That will end up around 5 months later with the Feast of Trumpets (warning trumpets), the Day of Atonement (Hosea 5:14-6:3), the Feast of Tabernacles (when Israel will live in booths and a sacrifice by fire is made each day, called the Feast of Ingathering/Ex 34:22/the gathering of the wheat/Matthew 13:30/Ezekiel 36:24.

    I interjected a paragraph spacing between the first part of the OP and the middle part, and added a reference, to make the OP easier to understand.

    You are probably right, in that if you aren't familiar with the Feasts days, then you will probably have a hard time following. That is why I left chapter and verse, so you can actually read the back ground information. The "awesome day of the LORD" is coming, and if you are caught unaware, your house will be broken into (Matthew 24:43).

    I'm aware of feast days. I'm aware. I'm just unaware of the meaning of what you wrote.

    In all sincerity, allow me to repeat...

    The eighth day was the eighth day from and including the day of preparation daylight only (verse 40) BEFORE the seven days the Israelites tabernacled for seven days night and day. (verse 41) The eighth day therefore was the seventh day of STAYING under tree branches. IT WAS NOT THE FIRST DAY AFTER the seven days of tabernacles. "Ye shall stay in booths seven days." verse 42. Not eight days.

    The summer feasts were seasonal feasts that might fall on any day of the week.

    The Leviticus 23 mention of "the eighth day" must be understood in the context of the annual feast it was.

    It also is the only occurrence of the expression no such importance as you attach to it could be reasonable.

    That it refers to Sunday is just too obviously churchism -- Catholicism, to be frank. Sunday and everything about it is anti-Christ in character and in principle.

    That may be explained per Daniel 12:10. It is like the wicked witch of the west, she did well with fire and flying monkeys, but water had an adverse affect on her. (Revelation 22:1) On the other hand, I am not the best writer on this planet. You may recognize the value of what I have written, when you see the "Son of man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory" (Daniel 7:13). At that time, you may make the confession of the nations/Gentiles (Jeremiah 16:19), if you survive the "great earthquake" (Mt 24:29) & (Joel 3:16).& (Zechariah 14:4-5), and the falling 100 pound hailstones (Rev 16:21). The 7 "feasts" days simply provide a blue print for the timing of the 7 angels of Revelation 8:2.

    The "eighth day" is not part of the "feast of booths", it simply follows the "feast of booths". It is a separate and last feast day, and has different connotations. It would represent the time after the millennium (Revelation 20:4) ends, which would be the time of the "lake of fire" (Revelation 20:13-15) for the followers of the serpent. Revelation 20:10 denotes 2 of the swimmers, the "false prophet", and the "beast", as well as the "devil".

    Passover is in the Bible. Easter is not. Easter comes from a pagan celebration observed in the springtime using many of the same symbols as Easter. Such as eggs and rabbits. Should Christians follow the Bible or some pagan ideas?

    Easter, Christmas, the cross, are all pagan symbols or feast days, which are linked to the heavenly watchers, the gods of the heavens. Of course, the heavenly watchers screwed up, and had children, and now we have a pantheon of gods and demons, who have their own church.

    And why not let them each have their own church, home-churches / congregations the building stones of the True Church of the Living God and Christ its Living Corner Stone?

    Who is jealous, so jealous it wishes the Church of True Believers vanished in smoke from the stake?

    Revaluation says there is a blessing in reading it. Understanding it is a different conundrum.

    Since the biblical date of Passover is the 14th of Nissan, which would be the 31st of March, and the resurrection according to you is 3 days later, then Easter should be the 3rd of April, and not the 1st of April for 2018.

    There is much any believer can learn from both Passover and Easter. After all, the sign of the cross was on every Jewish home in blood during the first Passover.

    It is the words and prayers and where they're directed to that make the difference. IOW, symbolism is in the eyes of the beholders, regardless as to what the original source may have been.

    Easter in the Strong's Concordance of the Greek translation 3957

    Gives-- Pascha -- The Passover
    ( The Meal, the day, The Festival or the
    Special Sacrifice connected with it --
    Easter, Passover.

    Therefore in the book of Acts 12:4 --"And when he had apprehended him, put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him;
    Intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people"

    This being Easter Passover. That us Christians holds as the day that Christ Jesus risen from the sepulchre ( tomb ).
    Luke 23:54-56, 24:1-3, John 19:40-42, 20:1,
    Mark 15:42-47 - 16:1-9, Matthew 28:1-6.


    Whether it's called Easter or Passover both are one and the same, and belongs to Christ Jesus.

    Satan has nothing at all to do with it.
