Why We Keep the Feasts! Pt.5 Exposition of Colossians 2 (Sabbath Bible Study 8-15(2018) (Colossians 2:2-17)JS LOWTHER - RNCM, November 22, 2018
Part of the Why We Keep the Feasts!? series, preached at a SABBATH BIBLE STUDY service
This message is an expository look as the text of Colossians chapter 2, with focus on verse 16; a verse which many abuse to nullify or abrogate the keeping of feasts by Christians directly commanded in YHWH GOD's WORD through his holy Law. The decision to expose this verse in it's lawful and historic context with the prior establishment of the Principality and Power of the Father with Christ is the only focus in this study, though it is part of the series "Why We Keep the Feasts" it is only studied to show the depths often used to find scripture to validate Christians presuppositions of A- and Anti- Nomianism.
As for US:
We walk in Him who is rooted, built up in Him, and stablished in the Faith, all of which will not leave us standing still but rather we will abound in the WORD of God with thanksgiving, moving forward in our walk in God's Word and being thankful he has revealed his perfect way to us, knowing it is impossible to obtain it's righteousness of ourself therefore we are rooted in Christ's righteousness wherein we can abound unto perfection by faith and sanctification.
So then what interpretation does context cast upon the possible meaning of:
Col_2:16-17 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ?
The way this verse is phrased is direct, How do we disallow other men from Judging us? Can we force him to not do so? If we ignore mens judgment of us it does not cause it to cease. The obvious answer is to desist in the action we are judge in by a man.

2That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 3In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. 5For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ. 6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. 16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. (KJV)
