    Why don’t we celebrate the resurrection on the Lord’s holy day. The First Fruits celebration was part God’s calendar that He is causing everything to happen. It is more prophetic to celebrate the fact that even the day that God planned from the beginning was so meaningful. “Easter” doesn’t tie the old and new together. We as the church are missing so much.

      I suppose one reason that many of us do not celebrate the First Fruits is that we are not of the Jewish tradition. ‘We as the church are missing so much’ is a very true statement; but I am always puzzled why we want to add things from a previous covenant. It seems we have enuff trouble trying to figure all the parts of the New Covenant… and not add our own things to ‘enhance’ God’s plan thru Jesus.

        Very good question. Why
        should we add to God’s plan through Jesus. You see God set the festivals
        in place as a beautiful plan set in place His calendar of events. For at least the first 150 years after the resurrection the understanding was the festivals were God’s festivals

        Leviticus 23:23 These are my appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies.

        So the change came latter when men started adding and changing God’s heart of love to include pagan traditions. Also there was a big push to separate us from the Jewishness. of the gospel message. Happy First Fruits! He is Risen!
