There is one fundamental Biblical question which arises frequently and yet is all too often met with a collective shrug of the shoulders, a meaningless platitude or an answer that doesn’t match what we see in the world around us. This question is asked anytime we are faced with calamity, whether that be on an individual basis, or collectively. How often have others, with complete sincerity, offered “It’s all part of God’s plan” as a source of comfort in times of trouble? The problem is, that is often as far as anyone goes in describing that plan. The difficult follow-up that we have to ask is “If this is part of God’s plan, then what is that plan?”
What are the most important days on the Christian calendar? Many would say Christmas and Easter. But the first followers of Jesus Christ observed neither of those days. They followed His example and observed the same Holy Days that Jesus Christ Himself observed!
The Holy Days in fact picture, in sequence, the destiny God has planned for all humanity. God Himself ordained these Holy Days as part of a sequence of annual festivals for all His people to observe.
