The Feasts Fulfilled

No one has ever been saved nor sanctified by keeping the feasts. The feasts were given to those who were already elect and set apart.
The observance of the feasts was God's command to His people to celebrate everything that HE had done for them. "Celebration" is copy and shadow of living in His finished work.There are those today have made it a work of sanctification, i.e. a holiness requirement for the elect, who are called of Him solely by grace through faith, in Christ alone.By all means if you wish to observe the feasts go right ahead the saints should only be seeking accurate understanding of scripture. Christ is the fulfillment of all the torah,and the prophets and psalms. He doesn't now keep the law for us. He didn't die to wipe the slate clean so that we could start over with keeping the law. His death, for His own, satisfies God's demand for justice by satisfying the righteous requirement of the law, i.e. the death of the transgressor. This is done by the imputation of the sins of the elect to Christ, (the only "non-transgressor who ever lived,past, present and future,i.e. the foreknown lamb without blemish), and subsequently the death of Christ.

2Cor 5:21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Chris is the fulfillment of all these things so that we who now live, might live that life to God through Him.

Gal2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Christ is the fulfillment of the feasts, once for all for all time. Therefore let us live, jew or gentile (it no longer matters), in constant celebration of the finished work of God in Christ.

Romans 1:
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, "The righteous shall live by faith."
