“It’s Time to Get on God’s Calendar”: An Exhortation by Pastor Don Finto

“We have been robbed of a significant part of our godly heritage through a calendar that was intentionally removed from the biblical one.”

That is how Pastor Don Finto begins his excellent discourse published recently in Charisma Magazine on the purpose of the Biblical calendar and its applicability to all of God’s people – not just Jews, but Christians as well.  This is a subject Messianic believers have understood for quite some time, but which the church as a whole is only now beginning to suspect.  Finto continues:

“The early believers in Jesus were all Jewish. Not until Cornelius were the Gentiles received into the fellowship without converting to Judaism. But even these early Gentile followers observed the biblical feasts as a prophetic statement of their newly found faith in the Jewish Messiah who is also Redeemer of the nations. When Paul wrote to the predominantly Gentile believers of Corinth, he spoke of “Christ, our Passover lamb (who) has been sacrificed. Therefore let us keep the Festival …” (1 Cor. 5:7-8). The biblical feasts had become the feasts of the Gentile believers as well.”
