This journey I have been on for the past 7 years has been all over the place. Initially I felt disillusioned and somewhere between frustrated and angry that the truth had been hidden from me for most of my life. Next came the shear joy of my new found Truth. Learning, learning, learning. Meeting new people who were in the same place. Oh, the sweet fellowship! The search for knowledge and Truth soon became an obsession and it seemed every stone I turned uncovered more pagan words, pagan practices, pagan history… the journey began to be more worrisome and less fun. The calendar was wrong, but which one was right? Every holiday was pagan. The sweet celebrations lost their sweetness. I began doubting everything. Where does one stop?
I have come to the conclusion that it really all boils down to FAITH. What will we choose to put our faith in? People ask me how to KNOW that Scripture is true. It is simply faith. There is no way for anyone to know. History books are written by the victors. Our media tells false versions of what is happening. Everywhere we turn we are lied to. We can’t trust what we SEE or HEAR. It’s no wonder there is so much suicide, rebellious young people, confusion. The tester is at work. So we must CHOOSE to have faith. We can have faith in Scripture, that it has stood the test of time. That is has been proven by history and archaeology and by how it is congruent. And if we have faith in Scripture, then we can have faith in the ONE Whom Scripture speaks about. Some will choose to have faith in a religion, or in themselves, or in the systems of this world. As for me, I choose YHWH and His Word.
Ah, but I digress. The point of this post was to say that after all of that questioning and doubting and study, I have come to the point (full circle) that I am going to follow the traditional calendar for the Feasts. Do I think it is correct? Probably not. Do I think some other calendar is correct? I think that none of them are and it probably is not even possible to find a correct calendar until Messiah comes. If I had to choose one, it would be the Enoch calendar, but at this time, I feel that UNITY is what we need. Looking at this from the other side, I see this one celebrating on that day and that one celebrating on this day and we are not in harmony. We are not enjoying the sweet fellowship of all celebrating TOGETHER. Not that someone is wrong for choosing one calendar over another, but we are MISSING OUT! The Father sees our hearts and our desires to obey and I really believe THAT is what He desires. A pure, obedient JOYFUL heart! … food for thought =)
