Dates for God's Holy Days

Ask a Question!   -   Newsletter
Christians keep the seven annual holy periods (known as holy or feast days), in part, because they reveal God's glorious plan of salvation for all humans. Additionally, they are a profound reminder of the special relationship all believers have with their Creator.

All the Holy Days have a three-fold meaning revolving around the past, present and future. They first remind us of God's mighty redemptive works and his guiding hand in earthly events. In the present, they reinforce a Christian's relationship with his Savior, as well as strengthening his or her spiritual bond with others of like faith.

The Holy Days also reveal God's future prophetic plans to offer salvation to all. Because they are "a foreshadow of the things that are coming" (Colossians 2:17) they remain a vital teaching tool for Christians to spiritually grow into "the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13).

Dates

Those unable to keep the Passover on its appointed day, due to emergencies or other unique circumstances, can keep this sacred ceremony one month later on what is called the second Passover (Numbers 9:10 - 11). These special dates are listed below.

Lastly, note that the Biblical Holy Days listed below are observed from sunset to sunset (e.g. a Sunday Pentecost is observed from sunset Saturday to sunset Sunday).
