The big difference between the Appointed Times of YHVH and the observances created by man, is that the Appointed Times POINT to something. Abba asks us to observe the Appointed Times in an annual cycle…there is a reason for that! The Appointed Times tell a story…they are alive…they teach us and they remind us of the plan that YHVH is working out here on this earth.
Our lives are NOT pointless, we are here for a reason and His Appointed Times tell the story. What do the observances of man point to? Greed, lies, deceit, a distraction, another opportunity to market and sell, a counterfeit observance instead of what YHVH put in place for all time.
Man’s attention is easily diverted and the observances set up by men are designed to attract and lure people in. They are dressed up and disguised as ‘religious’ observances, so that they are pleasing and lead one to believe that they are obeying their Creator.
He has already given us the days we are to observe and He set them in place forever…He commands us to observe them forever. Should we observe the days that men have created and passed off as ‘religious’ days of observance, or should we look to YHVH and observe the days that He set in place forever?
The days YHVH commands us to observe take us on a fascinating and amazing journey throughout the year as we learn each phase of His Plan and how He is bringing about the salvation of mankind. Each year we repeat the cycle so that we are reminded and so that we continue to understand what He is doing in a much deeper way.
Look for the man-made observances in His Word and see if you find them. The days YHVH tells us to observe are easy to find…they are there in plain view for all who see the truth to find for themselves.

Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
