Celebrating and the Bible

Celebration is recorded all through the bible. People celebrated all kinds of things Exodus 34:22 "first weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering to the end of the year. Leviticus 23:32-41 people were encouraged to celebrate the Sabbath. 2 Kings 23:21 was the "Passover celebration, 2 Chronicles 30:13 was the feast of Unleavened Bread, the feast of Tabernacles in Zechariah 14:16. What does all of these celebration commemorate? They all point to Christ.

Birthday celebrations. The first place that the word “birthday” is mentioned in Scripture is recorded in Gen 40:20 “Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head (that is, brought them out of prison) of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.” This is a pagan ruler according to the Bible, an idol worshiper, which would not be pleasing in God’s sight and we find him celebrating his birthday with a feast and invited guests. What else do we see here? Gen 40:21-22 “Then he restored the chief butler to his butlership again, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh's hand.  But he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph had interpreted to them.”  So we see, with this first recorded birthday celebration in Scripture, there is a death that occurs and it is a pagan ruler who is celebrating his birthday and has someone put to death.

The next two passages where birthday is found in Scripture are in Matt. 14:6 and Mark 6:21. Mark 6:21 “Then an opportune day came when Herod on his birthday gave a feast for his nobles, the high officers, and the chief men of Galilee.”  What does this mean an “opportune day”? We can clearly see that it is king Herod who is keeping his birthday, and here is another Scripture that will help us understand a little more about this. This is the 3rd and last place the word birthday is mentioned and talks about the same situation, as mentioned before. Matt 14:6-8  “But when Herod's birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod.  Therefore he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, "Give me John the Baptist's head here on a platter."   

Only two men in the entire Bible are listed as celebrating their birthdays, both of which are evil men and not servants of God. Both of these men had someone murdered as one of the results of them celebrating their birthday.

There is one other example in Scripture that some feel is a birthday celebration; however the word “birthday” is not mentioned. Job 1:4 (KJV)  “And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one {on} his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.” When you read the context of these events, you will find that all of these children each in turn did this, and they were all wiped out on one of these “Days”.5,7
