Use the therapist’s secret. When you’re facing a battleaxe relative, win by refusing to fight. Accept comments about your appearance, weight or singlehood that used to upset you with a nod and say “That’s the way you see it.” This really throws them and saves you from a lot of holiday stress.

The apostle Paul said those holy days were “a shadow of things to come,” Colossian 2:16. He kept them, (Acts 20:6,16; 27:9) and urged us to follow his example, 1Cor 11:1; 5:8.

This was so last fall when the US Senate met on Rosh Hashanah to approve a bailout and the markets crashed for 10 days till Yom Kippur. This fit the timing for the trumpets in Leviticus 23:24-27. With the first trumpet in Revelation 8:7, “all green grass was burnt up,” but grass represents riches in James 1:9-11 in KJV, “As the flower of the grass, so shall the rich man fade.” So we see a timely application of Jewish feast days may occur for the end-time, just as Christ died as the Passover lamb at Passover.
