True, born-again Christian believers have no business celebrating any Old Testament Jewish festival or feast, or keeping any Jewish laws or rules or commands to get a blessing from God! This is nothing but a major deception designed to keep people in religious church bondage. It is also a clever ploy to make people sow money into these Jewish feasts and festivals in exchange for getting major (financial) blessings in return.
Why am I saying this? Because in the New Testament of the Bible it clearly says,
“Don’t let anyone tell you what you must eat or drink. Don’t let them say you must celebrate the New Moon festival, the Sabbath, or any other festival. These things are only a shadow of what was to come. But Christ is real! Don’t be cheated by people who make a show of acting humble and who worship angels. They brag about seeing visions. But it is all nonsense, because their minds are filled with selfish desires.” Colossians 2:16-18 CEV
“Christ has made peace between Jews and Gentiles, and He has united us by breaking down the wall of hatred that separated us. Christ gave His own body to destroy the Law of Moses with all its rules and commands. He even brought Jews and Gentiles together as though we were only one person, when He united us in peace.” Ephesians 2:14-15 CEV
To put this in context; our Passover lamb, Jesus Christ, brought us forgiveness and salvation from our evil and sinful nature. That is why the apostle Paul, when he admonished the Corinthian church, uses this metaphorical way of speaking about Passover,
“Stop being proud! Don’t you know how a little yeast can spread through the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast! Then you will be like fresh bread made without yeast, and this is what you are. Our Passover lamb is Christ, who has already been sacrificed. So don’t celebrate the festival by being evil and sinful, which is like serving bread made with yeast. Be pure and truthful and celebrate by using bread made without yeast.” 1. Corinthians 5:6-8 CEV
Therefore, there is absolutely no need to celebrate Passover or any other Jewish festival, but we celebrate Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior daily, who by dying on the cross, ended the system of law with its commandments and regulations! (See Ephesians 2:14-15)
