Through the centuries, theologians have devised many arguments to do away with the observance of Yah’s holy days. They propose that various scriptures in the New Covenant obviate the need for Followers to keep the days which Yah’s law specifically says are holy to Him (Leviticus 23:2).

A favorite target of theirs is Galatians 4:9-10, in which Pa’al expresses his frustration with the Galatians because they had returned to certain religious practices. He calls these practices "weak and beggarly elements" and says they were again "in bondage" to them.

In verse 10 he defines these practices as observances of "days and months and seasons and years." The argument begins at this point because some contend that these observances refer to Yah’s holy days commanded in the Old Covenant. Indeed, YAHUAH established specific "days" (Passover, Days of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, etc.), "months" (new moons, sacred calendar), "seasons" ("appointed times [seasons, KJV]"—Leviticus 23:4; see also Deuteronomy 16:16;
