I'd like to do a study on the feasts and how and when to observe them. I have never celebrated (right word?) any of them and would like to know how. As soon as I finish How to Unravel End Times Prophecy (Pt 1 & 2) I will search for feasts and Perry Stone. Thanks. I meant 7 in my opening post not 8. (Maybe?)
I'm watching a video on how to determine feast dates. By the same guy who's video I posted on September thread. There are 2 parts. (For you Ab www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VYXMxVh_O0 ) It's silent! (the video)
Word search on feasts...even to the new testament. I believe this is part of Yehovah's calendar:
Lev_23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
Lev_23:4 These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
Lev_23:37 These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:
Lev_23:44 And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD.
Num_15:3 And will make an offering by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savour unto the LORD, of the herd, or of the flock:

This is an ordinance for ever to Israel.
2Ch_8:13 Even after a certain rate every day, offering according to the commandment of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts, three times in the year, even in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles.
2Ch_31:3 He appointed also the king's portion of his substance for the burnt offerings, to wit, for the morning and evening burnt offerings, and the burnt offerings for the sabbaths, and for the new moons, and for the set feasts, as it is written in the law of the LORD.
Ezr_3:5 And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of the LORD that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto the LORD.

Eze_36:38 As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
Eze_45:17 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.
Eze_46:9 But when the people of the land shall come before the LORD in the solemn feasts, he that entereth in by the way of the north gate to worship shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that entereth by the way of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth over against it.

Amo_8:10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

Well, I liked Mr By the Fireside for his 1st (Mazzaroth) and 2nd video but the 3rd has no rapture and starts the tribulation in 2011. Obviously, I think his timeline is way off but I don't see his error other than picking and emphasizing the wrong dates and wrongly applying or ignoring other scriptures. In any event, I think he is right about the feasts being a part of God's calendar. And he clarifies for me how you can't know the date within 48 hrs.
Among the Orthodox, the particular feasts are usually held at the church after the liturgy. I have gone to some Paschal feasts that were held at the home of one of the well-to-do parishioners which had close to 200+ people show up (essentially the entire church). In general major feasts are more formal church affairs, where minor ones are usually at home or among friends. Feasts for particular saints are largely personal affairs for those who the saint means something special (for example my Patron Saint is the Prophet Elijah).
A large part of the point for feasts is to foster church unity, so the liturgical calendar for Catholics and Orthodox is rather busy (have fun, keep fed, and keep us busy with things that keep us out of trouble). The Church always intended to be the center of Christian life.
From the net:
A saint’s feast day can be the day of their actual death or a day assigned by the Church. Typically, the Church only assigns a day when the day of death is unknown or if several other saints are already assigned to that day. The number of canonized saints, however, is greater than the number of days in a calendar year. So two or more saints often share the same feast day. Because overlap often occurs, and the Church isn’t sure of the date of death of some saints, other calendar dates are sometimes chosen — such as the day that the saint was canonized.
Some saints’ feasts are only celebrated in the particular saint’s town or country. Others are internationally celebrated.
For example, St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, is celebrated in Ireland, because St. Patrick is the patron saint of the entire nation. St. Patrick’s Day is also celebrated in many areas of the United States due to the Irish immigrants who crossed the Atlantic. Many U.S. dioceses have cathedrals dedicated to St. Patrick, or he’s the patron saint of the diocese. Celebrating the Feast of St. Patrick is a big occasion and a solemnity, a full-blown liturgical feast, in such places. In other places, such as Italy, Spain, France, Poland, and Germany, St. Patrick’s feast day isn’t celebrated with the same fanfare.
Now this day will be a memorial to you, and you shall celebrate it as a feast to the LORD; throughout your generations you are to celebrate it as a permanent ordinance. 15'Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, but on the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses;
