Seventh Day Adventist and the Holy Days

Seventh-day Adventists Waking Up to Feast Days

There has been a recent trend with members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church coming to the knowledge and acceptance of the biblical Feast days. Examples of these days include the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks, a.k.a. Pentecost, and the Feast of Tabernacles.

Not only are many realizing that the Messiah and apostles observed these days in the New Testament (Mark 14:1; John 7:2, 37; Acts 2:1-4; 12:3; 20:6, 16; 1Cor. 5:8), but they also offer incredible insight into our Creator’s plan of salvation for mankind. For instance, not only did the Passover bring redemption to Israel through the death of the Passover lamb, but the Messiah through His death also brought salvation to mankind. A similar connection is found with the Feast of Weeks. This Feast represents the giving of the Law in the Old Testament and also the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament.

Seventh-day Adventist ChurchEven though the Seventh-day Adventist Church does not officially recognize these days, Ellen G. White, a predominant founder of this movement, spoke to the value of these days: “Anciently the Lord instructed His people to assemble three times a year for His worship. To these holy convocations the children of Israel came, bringing to the house of God their tithes, their sin offerings, and their offerings of gratitude. They met to recount God’s mercies, to make known His wonderful works, and to offer praise and thanksgiving to His name. And they were to unite in the sacrificial service which pointed to Christ as the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world. Thus they were to be preserved from the corrupting power of worldliness and idolatry. Faith and love and gratitude were to be kept alive in their hearts, and through their association together in this sacred service they were to be bound closer to God and to one another.” Testimonies for the Church, vol. 6, p. 39)

While Ellen G. White never officially endorsed the keeping of the annual Feasts, she nonetheless saw the value of these days. Perhaps with more time and study she would have come to this understanding, as she correctly did with the seventh-day Sabbath.

While the Seventh-day Adventists offer many truths, there are more that they have yet to recognize, including the observance of the biblical Feasts, the use of Yahweh’s and Yahshua’s Names, and a correct understanding of who the Father and Son are as it pertains to the Trinity doctrine.

If you are a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and desire more truth, consider exploring these and many other insights that the Bible clearly teaches. Let us not be unprepared when our Savior returns by ignoring portions of His Word, but search out what He says with an open and unbiased mind. “But sanctify Yahweh Elohim in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear,” 1 Peter 3:15.

There are any around here! There is also more truth in the Law of Moses than the yearly Sabbaths that people don’t want to hear about.

Remember the Law of Moses my servant, which I commanded to him in Horeb for all Israel, the statutes and judgments. Malachi 4:4

Do you mean that there aren’t any or there are many? I found Torah keepers online through Bible Explorations (started by SDAs) and 119 Ministries.

Excellent I am so excited to hear this. I have been a Sabbath Keeper some 36 years and I love 7th Day humble services, but I would not be there on Feasts Days nor keep I communion with them. This is a blessing to hear. Is there a place in Chicago Area that keep the Yahweh’s Feast Days.

I LOVE THIS!!! My first Feast was Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles 2016! Things are really moving now and there were a lot of very significant political things that happened in 2015 and 2016 on Feast Days specifically! The Pope being invited to speak to Congress for the first time was one of them! Prophecy is being fulfilled and Yahweh is calling his people back to covenant and HIS way of worship!!

This is my view on the feasts days ,the ceremonial laws that pointed to the redeemer were done at the cross. To keep these means you are not excepting Jesus as the true sacrifice . Are we still looking for the true lamb of God?

Peace I believe in SDA doctrine as well, but there is nowhere in the Bible or the writings of EGW that says the annual Holy days of GOD are done away with. Now, verses are used to make it appear as it does, but it’s not the case. What the brothers and sisters here at YRM is pointing out to you is very important, you heard actions speaks louder than words right? Well, the actions of the apostles and the early Gentiles shows that the annual Holy Days of GOD still being observed. Let’s check it out, YRM pointed out… Read more »

Their is no other fellowship for miles around but their are some Seventh Day Churches. I long to be apart of a fellowship again I have even considered going to check them out. Would it be… Read more »
