It’s February, which means most people are already falling short of their New Year’s resolutions. Whether it’s losing weight, earning more money or even trying to become stronger in their faith, most people find themselves trapped in old failed patterns around this time of year.

But maybe that’s because the New Year is an arbitrary marker. Perhaps Christians need not just a fresh start, but a way to walk with their God all year long. It would be even better to base their schedules around days that God Himself has said are important. And reorienting their lives this way would prevent believers from ever going off track again.

Such a dramatic, life-changing, faith-strengthening reboot is now possible, thanks to the work of Pastor Mark Biltz. In his newest book, “God’s Day Timer: The Believer’s Guide To Divine Appointments,” Biltz presents astounding new insights into the Bible, the divine feast days and what we know about when Jesus Christ will return.

At the center of this remarkable message is the importance of Passover, a holiday deeply important to the Jewish people. As Biltz points out, Jesus died on Passover. Because most believers do not use the biblical calendar, they are celebrating Easter on the wrong day.

Biltz, best known as the discoverer of the “Blood Moons” phenomenon, reminds Christians they are “admonished to remember the Lord’s death” and the Last Supper was actually a Passover Seder.

“When Yeshua said ‘as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup,’ in 1 Corinthians 11: 26, He was directly referring to the annual Passover Seder,” Biltz observed.

“Christians should care about the Passover Supper because it was instituted by God to be a memorial forever. In Revelations 13:8 we read about the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world. This means Messiah’s death was so important to God He preplanned what day His Son would die, what hour He would die and even what songs were to be sung at His funeral, having King David write the songs over 1,000 years in advance!”

The Bible story is more miraculous and astounding than you could have imagined. See the incredible proof of the unchanging nature of God – and the exciting clues to what awaits at the end of days in “God’s Day Timer” by Mark Biltz, available as a book or documentary now in the WND Superstore.

Celebrating Passover also allows Christians to understand their faith and their salvation at a far deeper level.

“When we understand Passover we clearly see the four stages of our Salvation: our sanctification, deliverance, redemption and finally our acceptance into the Kingdom of God,” Biltz explained.

“Understanding Passover builds our faith when we see how involved the Father was in even the minute details of fulfilling each and every step of Messiah’s life. The cleansing of the Temple took place at the very same time everyone was cleansing their house of unleavened bread. Messiah was being inspected as the Lamb of God without blemish during the same time all the Passover Lambs were being inspected. There is also the rending of the veil of the Temple, representing the Father’s heartbreak over the death of His son, as was the custom of the day at the loss of a close relative.

“The Passover becomes an astounding revelation as we discover the meaning behind all the customs. For example, Messiah being represented by matzah, which is striped, pierced, wrapped in linen and hidden away until the cup of redemption is poured. The realization of the Messiah in the Passover is breathtaking if Christians only knew the depth.”

Passover begins on April 10 this year, and Biltz says it is an ideal time for Christians to make a new beginning.

“Passover speaks of our redemption and that is the best place to start again, as a new creation in the Messiah,” he said. “Getting an alignment is the best thing for your car if you want the rest of your journey to go well. It is the same when you want to restart life’s journey. Get in alignment with the God of the universe by walking hand in hand with Him every step of the way. What greater honor can we give to the One who redeemed us than to walk as He walked according to the times and seasons He has pre-determined.”

For that reason, “God’s Day Timer” isn’t just an enlightening study of Scripture and theology. It’s a way to realign your entire life and live the way God intended.

“By following the biblical calendar, you are aligning yourselves with the Creator of the universe, as it is the only one He goes by,” said Biltz. “If you consider yourself a student of prophecy and you are not on God’s calendar, you are likened to a ship in the middle of the ocean without a compass or any navigational equipment. All biblical prophecies will be fulfilled not according to the world’s pagan calendar but the one He clearly stated He uses.”

Biltz argues the Bible shows God uses specific dates to determine His “divine appointments” when He would intersect human history.

“In Zechariah 8:19, God mentions four dates that have been annual days of mourning for Israel for the last 2,500 years that will prophetically become days of rejoicing,” Biltz said. “If you, as a student of prophecy, have no understanding of the significance of these dates or when they fall on the biblical calendar you will have no idea when four significant prophecies will be fulfilled! By being on God’s biblical calendar the current news of today truly becomes alive as you see events being fulfilled accordingly.”

Indeed, the pastor believes the Bible clearly teaches everyone in Jesus’s coming Kingdom will be observing the solemn Feasts of the Lord. If that’s so, is it a fair question to ask why Christians are not doing it today, learning more about them and finding out whether God requires all of His people to observe them now.

Mark Biltz’s “Feasts of the Lord” teaching series is an in-depth examination of these questions. It’s a two-DVD package that explores each of the seven biblical holidays from Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits and Weeks (or Shavout or Pentecost) in the spring, to Trumpets, Yom Kippur and Tabernacles in the fall. Viewers will learn how each of them point to Jesus – with the spring feasts revealing His first coming and the fall feasts His Second Coming.

But the point of all this is not just to learn about God. It’s to transform the lives of believers. And Pastor Biltz passionately teaches that following God’s calendar and walking with Him throughout the year is the best way to do that.

“The Bible asks in Amos 3:3, ‘Can two walk together, except they be agreed?'” Biltz said. “The best way to draw close to God is to walk hand in hand with Him on His schedule! If you want to call someone in a different time zone, you need to coordinate with that other person as to whose clock you are going to go by. In Ecclesiastes 3:1 it states, ‘For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.’ If we don’t know the times and the seasons of the biblical calendar we will be plucking at planting time and planting at plucking time!

“This was the problem at the time of the Messiah when He wept over Jerusalem because they missed the time of their visitation. In Acts 17:26-27, we see every nation has an appointed time the Lord has given for that nation to seek Him and to find Him.”
