If this Feast passed away, why is it invoked again in Hebrews after Messiah
ascended? The same who claim it passed instead keep other pagan holidays as
replacements in the epitome of hypocrisy. Literally, they are claiming Yahuah
abolished His Feasts so we could observe pagan ones commemorating His
enemies instead. Then, we can all eat food sacrificed to idols which He calls sin.
Jacob (Israel) is the origin of this Feast as he mourned for Joseph.
And he mourned for Joseph one year, and did not cease, for he said “Let me go down
to the grave mourning for my son.” For this reason it is ordained for the children of
Israel that they should afflict themselves on the tenth of the seventh month -- on the
day that the news which made him weep for Joseph came to Jacob his father -- that
they should make atonement for themselves thereon with a young goat on the tenth of
the seventh month, once a year, for their sins; for they had grieved the affection of their
father regarding Joseph his son. And this day hath been ordained that they should
grieve thereon for their sins, and for all their transgressions and for all their errors, so
that they might cleanse themselves on that day once a year.
In Leviticus 16, this Feast is re-established in Israel. However, there is no mention
of it being new. It was Israel’s sons who sinned and sold their brother into slavery
and needed atonement which is this beginning. This is a very appropriate day to
grieve the sons of Aaron who died for their sins in the days of Moses. As Torah
does not specify this originated in that era, there is no conflict and no reason
to question this. Practically all of Israel’s covenant originated with Abraham
specifically, was already being observed by Noah and truly since Adam. There is
nothing new about His Law, His ways nor His covenant. All are based on the First
Law which is referenced in this book referring to that from Creation.
Feast of Tabernacles: Seventh Month 15-22
The origin of the Feast of Tabernacles is Abraham who lived in tents long
before there was an Israel in the wilderness. He instituted this Feast Day not
Moses. There is nothing in Torah which says otherwise.
Jubilees 16:21 and 29
And he built booths for himself and for his servants on this festival, and he was the
first to celebrate the feast of tabernacles on the earth.
For this reason it is ordained on the heavenly tables concerning Israel, that they shall
celebrate the feast of tabernacles seven days with joy, in the seventh month, acceptable
before Yahuah -- a statute for ever throughout their generations every year.
