Sunday, Christmas and
Easter are all converted pagan sun-worship festivals.
These festivals were not taught by Yeshua or practiced
by His disciples, but slowly crept their way into the faith
during a great ‘falling away’, and were only ‘sanctified’
by the Catholic Church hundreds of years later. Even
though the Pope ‘sanctified’ these festivals, the Pope’s
authority does not exceed that of Scripture; and the
simple fact is that YHWH never told us to keep these
festivals. Instead, YHWH tells us to keep His festivals:
so why would anyone who believes in YHWH keep
Sunday, Christmas or Easter?
In different places, YHWH tells us that He wants us to
keep His festival days forever, in all of our generations.
Shemote (Exodus) 12:14
14 ‘Now this day will be a memorial to
you, and you shall celebrate it as a
feast to YHWH. Throughout your
generations you are to celebrate it as a
Because the timing of Sunday, Christmas and Easter
are not established according to YHWH’s commands,
but instead are established by observing the heavenly
bodies, Deuteronomy 4:19 prohibits them. This can at
first seem confusing: if a believer intends to honor
YHWH or Yeshua by keeping these festival days, then
how is it homage to the sun, the moon and the stars to
worship on these days?
Notice that when Aharon (Aaron) initiated the festival
with the golden calf, he told the people that the festival
was in honor of YHWH.
Shemote (Exodus) 32:4-8
4 And he received the gold from their
hand, and he fashioned it with an
engraving tool, and made a molded
calf. Then they said, "This is your
elohim, O Israel, that brought you out
of the land of Egypt!"
5 So when Aharon saw it, he built an
altar before it. And Aharon made a
proclamation and said, "Tomorrow is a
feast to YHWH!"
6 Then they rose early on the next day,
offered burnt offerings, and brought
peace offerings; and the people sat
down to eat and drink, and rose up to
7 And YHWH said to Moshe, "Go, get
down! For your people whom you
brought out of the land of Egypt have
8 They have turned aside quickly out
of the way which I commanded them.
They have made themselves a molded
calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to
it, and said, ‘This is your elohim (g-d),
O Israel, that brought you out of the
land of Egypt!’"
Even though Aharon said that “Tomorrow is a feast to
YHWH”, and even though all the people may have
thought that they would be honoring YHWH with this
festival, the simple fact is that YHWH was not pleased.
YHWH was so furious that the people had made their
own festival days that He was prepared to wipe out the
children of Israel, and start a new nation out of Moshe.
