Seasons and Feasts

If you were to ask a believer in the Messiah, “Is it wrong to steal?” They would say "yes".  Even your average morally sane person would probably say "yes". Then, if you were to ask that same person, “If it was okay to kill, commit adultery or lie on an innocent man?” They would probably reply, “Why, certainly not.”  Now, if you were to ask, "If it would be wrong to set a day apart during the week to spend time with your family or God"?  They most likely would say, "Why, certainly not".  So why is there such an offense towards keeping His appointed times (Moadim), Sabbaths, feast and festivals?
Most people have been raised to run away from the law of Elohim, His teaching and instructions called the Torah, out of fear of falling from grace and falling into legalism. So, they make a conscious effort to avoid doing anything that may look like “legalism”.  At Yeshua Is LORD Ministries, we want to change this common perspective and misconception.
You see, most believers are not against keeping a day set apart unto YHWH.  However, they do have a problem when it is told to them that it has to be a certain day. So, how important is that certain day?  It's very important because, its about “an appointment”. It's  no different than keeping a doctor's appointment.  Of course, you can go anytime to see the doctor, but when you are given a certain day to come,  that is when the doctor will be ready to receive you.  So, who gets to set the appointment? Can you set the appointment?  Sure you can, but if Elohim has already set the appointment, should we go into His appointment book and cancel the appointment out of fear that it may appear to be legalism and request a different day?  Certainly not.  With that said, that is how easy you can keep YHWH's (Moadim) appointed times. 
Now that your mind is starting to be transformed into Hebrew thought, take a moment to look at Leviticus 23, which lists the feasts of YHWH, which are called “Moadim (plural)” from the Hebrew Strongs #4150 meaning an appointment, i.e. a fixed time or season; specifically, a festival; conventionally a year; by implication, an assembly (as convened for a definite purpose); technically the congregation; by extension, the place of meeting; also a signal (as appointed beforehand):--appointed (sign, time), (place of, solemn) assembly, congregation, (set, solemn) feast, (appointed, due) season, solemn(-ity), synogogue, (set) time (appointed).
Here are a few idiom phrases that are attached to the Sabbath and His Feasts:
The wedding rehearsal -  Of course we are the bride of Christ
The Sign of marriage (i.e like a wedding ring)
The Day of His visitation
Set-Apart unto YHWH – Not unto yourself, doing what you want, but unto Him.
“Oneg” – Delight – A day to handle delicately.
The day that no man knows the day nor the hour.
