Hyper-Jewish Cult - A Bible Analysis

Should We Celebrate Jewish Feasts And Expect Jesus’ Return During The Celebration?

Duke Jeyaraj answers

We do not need to celebrate Jewish feasts as New Testament Christians. It is not compulsory! It is left to one’s free will (Rom. 14:5-6). Celebrating any Jewish thinking that act will save us, is an insult to finished Work of Jesus on the Cross (See Gal. 4:10). When we trusted Jesus as our Savior as Gentiles, we have been ‘circumcised’ already spiritually speaking – we don’t have to undergo physical circumcision (Col. 2:11). Just as circumcision, the physical rite, involves removal of the foreskin of the male private organ, our salvation through faith and ongoing Spirit-directed abidance in Jesus gives us power to “remove” sinful addictions in our private lives. As New Testament believers we can eat pork (no matter what hyper-jewish false teachers say) because Apostle Paul writes only ‘hypocritical liars’ and hell-populating cultic false teachers teach that we must ‘abstain from certain foods which God created’ (I Tim. 4:2-3).

Some hyper-jewish groups, these days, teach, “Jesus will come around this Jewish feast,” in order to coax more believers to celebrate Jewish feasts! Don’t fall for their trap!

Jesus will come a thief in the night – the Bible tells us this seven times. And no one knows when Jesus will come, except the Father – the Bible tells us this two times! Watch this video of mine (under 1 minute) to know the Bible references: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpFBrtd1ckI

Of course, having been saved by grace we must obey the moral laws of God moved out of gratitude (Heb. 13:4 is basically repeating familiar moral law found in the Exodus 20 Ten Commandments, ‘Do not commit adultery’; Ephesians 4:28 is repeating another of the Exodus 20 Ten Commandments, ‘Do not steal’; Colossians 3:9 is repeating another of the Exodus 20 Ten Commandment, ‘Do not bear false witness/lie”). Following the moral laws of the Old Testament will not save us! But if we are truly saved, we will follow the moral laws of the Old Testament empowered by the grace of God and Spirit of God (Rev. 22:13-14, Jesus is the ‘alpha’ and ‘omega’ of our salvation, but we need to wear – use the power – what he gives us freely in order to enter heaven).

Duke Jeyaraj was born to missionary parents in Vellore, South India and was saved at the age of 11 and committed for ministry and received the Holy Spirit Baptism at the age of 13. God opened the door for him to preach first as a school boy at the age of 16. He is a trained Agricultural Engineer [B. Tech from SHIATS, Allahabad, India], who did not pursue a career in the line of his education but nevertheless enjoys growing cacti in the balcony of his rented Chennai flat, during his spare time! He could have been a sports commentator but prefers to wrap Bible Truth around sports magic moments and other interesting-to-Google Genners contemporary events. God’s call upon him made him utterly restless and he obeyed that call to by founding the Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission (G4 Mission) in 2006 to finally find serenity after having served as a International Bank Customer Service Executive/Youth Pastor/Bible College Teacher/Missionary/Youth Mag Editor. G4 Mission is not a church but an inter-denominational ministry to present-day people, a ministry which Duke works full time for, as an itinerant presenter/preacher/writer-at-residence since 2008 along with his wife, putting to use the formal theological training he received from Southern Asia Bible College in Bangalore-India [M. Div - a Gold Medal performance in 2001 & Doctor of Ministry - with project on Making Disciples of Modern Young Working Professionals Among India's Google Generation, World-wide]. Several Christian publications have carried Duke's articles over the years and at present Aim Magazine (the voice of  the Evangelical Fellowship of India an umbrella body of over 65,000 Indian churches/organisations), regularly carries Duke's writings. Duke's Bible-teaching book on Sex, Love, Marriage, Porn and more called, Straight Talk, is presently available on Amazon and Google Books.  Duke has preached by invitation beyond his national borders (we are talking about nations such as Bangladesh, Singapore, Germany, Nepal and the United Arab Emirates). Duke is called a 'Reverend' by a leading denomination (even as his ministry remains indepedent and inter-church).  Duke is called ‘dad’ by Dale (now a St. Stephen's Delhi student) and Datasha (now in Class 9) and ‘hubby’ by Evangelin (the daughter of a missionary couple to Odisha who is a hospital admin grad currently studying M. A. in Biblical Studies with SAIACS Bangalore) and calls Chennai, India, his current home after living in Hyderabad till June 2021. In case your curiosity is triggered by hearing all this, you may checkout www.dukewords.com [if you are the reading plain text type], www.soundcloud.com/shoutaloud [if you are part of the audio-listening tribe] and www.youtube.com/visitduke [if you group yourself with the video-steaming generation])
