The Sovereignty of God and the Holy Days
Image via WikipediaKey: Colossians 2:16-17
Regarding holy days and festivals and the Sabbath. Paul said, so let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are the shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. In Roman 14:3 regarding a feast day, let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats, for God has received him; Hebrews 8:5-6 refers to the new priestly service who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, “See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.” But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator (Jesus Christ) of a better covenant (new), which was established on better promises.
