Apostle Paul in his epistles to the Colossians says, “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.” (Col 2:16-17). This is one of the most misunderstood passage about Paul.
The misinterpretation of this passage started with the wrong translation biased on the abrogation of the Torah. However, the Greek word “de” is a primary particle that can be used either as an “adversative” or “continuative.”
Adversative is used for contrasting while continuative is to bridge and support what
was and what is. Translators err in this matter for choosing adversative word - “but” - to differentiate Christ against the Torah and in the process have to add another word “is” making the passage appear to be in contrary to the Law of G-D.
Paul was very clear that the Feasts, New Moon and Sabbaths are typology and shadow or reflection of what is real similar to what was shown by G-D to Moses in the mountain.

1. Divine judgment
6. Crowning of King
7. New Beginning
Yiddish Traditions. Many Jewish customs have arisen to commemorate this feast. As believers, we understand better when we practice those who are biblical and help us remember the purpose of the Feasts.
Yearning Thought. Three books are opened [in heaven] on New Year, one for the thoroughly wicked, one for the thoroughly righteous, and one for the intermediate. The thoroughly righteous are inscribed in the book of life; the thoroughly wicked are inscribed in the book of death; the
doom of the intermediate is suspended from New Year till the Day of Atonement; if they deserved well, they are inscribed in the book of life; if they do not deserve well, they are inscribed in the book of death.
Yodel Tone. "When there's judgment from below, there's no need for judgment from above." What this means is that if we take the time to construct a sincere, realistic model of how we've fallen short in the past, and what we expect to change in the future, then G-D doesn't need to "wake us up" to what we already know.
Teruah in Hebrew means not only a certain unique sound. It also connotes "to break", denoting breaking something and/or causing damage.
Yelling Toot. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:30-31
Yonder Time. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. Mat 24:32-39
