Celebrating The Feasts

Q. After the birth of the church on the day of Pentecost (which was mostly if not all Jewish) did the members of the church continue to practice or celebrate the seven feasts? Here is the reasoning behind my question (and please correct me if I am wrong)… the Lord never intended the Jewish people to stop being Jewish, He just intended for them (like all of us) to be believers in the one whom the Father had sent. So would practicing/celebrating the feasts of Israel be considered legalistic? I can’t wait to hear your answer…
I love your ministry and what you do for our Lord, may He continue to richly bless you.

A. I helped found and for over a year was the pastor of a Messianic Fellowship. We celebrated all the feasts because they all point to Jesus. He fulfilled 3 of them in His first coming (Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits), birthed the Church in the 4th one (Pentecost) and will fulfill the remaining three in the 2nd Coming (Trumpets, Yom Kippur and Tabernacles) It’s hard to find a clearer picture of the Messiah than the Feasts of Israel and every Gentile believer would gain much from celebrating them from a Messianic perspective.
