Our studies in Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Numbers 29.12-16.
AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.
And with that said, let’s read Numbers 29.12-16
This is a two part message. The first part will consist of The LORD’S Commandments for The Feast of Tabernacles, and certain Jewish traditions that are involved in Sukkot, The Feast of Tabernacles.
The second part of our message is the Extraordinary Prophetic Fulfillment that I believe will happen or has happened for each Appointed Festival of The LORD.
All The LORD’S Appointed Festivals are written in Torah in Leviticus Chapter 23.
The continual burnt offerings The LORD GOD speaks of in Numbers 29.16 are The Daily Sacrifice Offerings To The LORD written in NUMBERS 28.1-4
The Feast of Tabernacles is given great importance as a reminder of the forty years that The Children of Israel lived in booths, in Hebrew called sukkot, when THE LORD GOD brought The People out of the land of Egypt on their journey to the Promised Land Canaan that today is Israel. LEVITICUS 23.33-34, 42-43
Of Great Importance during the Eight Day Feast Of Tabernacles is The LORD’S Reminder and Requirement for GOD’S Jewish People and all Peoples to make an Atonement for their sins with a sin offering.
During Tabernacle and Temple times, atonement was made by the sacrifice of a male goat.
Sin is breaking The Law of Moses. Disobeying The Written Word of GOD in The Bible. 1 JOHN 3.4, NUMBERS 15.29-31
NUMBERS 29.12, 16, 17, 19, 20, 22, 23, 25, 26, 28, 29, 31, 32, 34, 35, 38-40, HEBREW TNAKH NUMBERS 29.38-39, NUMBERS 30.1
Our sin offering today is The Jewish Messiah Yeshua Who gave His Life for our Atonement. That is Prophesied in Isaiah 53.10 and fulfilled in The Jewish New Testament.
The sacrifices called burnt offerings were for a sweet aroma and sin offerings to The LORD for the Children of Israel and the non-Jewish People living among them.
The daily sacrifice of a male goat was also for the Atonement of The Jewish People and the non-Jewish People living among them.
Messiah’s Atoning Death, The Prophet Says, Was pleasing to The LORD when He made His Soul an offering for sin. ISAIAH 53.10
The Festival of Tabernacles became so popular that it was known simply as Hag. That is The Festival Par Excellence.
Hag is short for Hag Sameach meaning Happy Holiday, or Joyful Festival.
Sukkot is also called, Zeman Sim’kha’taynu, The Time of Our Rejoicing. DEUTERONOMY 16.15, LEVITICUS 23.40
Jewish People in Israel, and some Jewish People outside of Israel dwell in sukkot or booths during the time of the Festival. LEVITICUS 23.42
The Hallel Psalms, The Praise with Psalms, PSALMS 113-118 are recited in The Synagogue during the Holiday because of the reference to the Exodus out of Egypt in PSALM 114.1.
And during the Festival many religious Jews take their meals and spend the day in a temporary sukkah (booth). And many Synagogues construct an adjoining sukkah to the building.
The Seventh Day of the Festival is given the name, Ho’shana Rabbah that literally means, THE GREAT SALVATION NOW, OR THE GREAT DELIVERANCE NOW, OR THE GREAT DEFENDER NOW.
It’s interesting to note that when Messiah Yeshua entered Jerusalem riding upon a donkey to fulfill the Prophesy of The Prophet Zechariah, who Prophesied, “Rejoice greatly O Daughter of Zion. Shout O Daughter of Jerusalem. Behold, Your King comes to you. He is Just and having Salvation, lowly and riding upon a donkey, upon a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
So when Messiah entered Jerusalem riding upon a donkey, large crowds of Jewish People in Jerusalem cried out to Him, Ho’shana L’Ben David”. Ho’shana (Hosanna) Please Save Now to The Son of David.”
And, “Barukh Haba B’Shem Adonai. Ho’shana B’Shmai Mah’rom.” “Blessed is He Who comes in The Name of The LORD. Ho’shana (Hosanna) Please Save Now in the Highest of Heaven.”
Also The Jewish crowds in Jerusalem cried out to Messiah, “Ho’shana Barukh Haba B’Shem Adonai Melech Y’Israel.” ” (Hosanna) Please Save Now. Blessed is The King of Israel Who comes in The Name of The LORD.”
So yes, great numbers of Jewish People received their Messiah Yeshua. MATTHEW 21.1-9, JOHN 12.12-13, PSALM 118.25-26, ZECHARIAH 9.9
Thus Judaism calls The Seventh Day of Sukkot the time of Great Rejoicing, Ho’shana Rabbah that means Great Salvation Now, or Great Deliverance Now, or Great Defender Now.
I SAY, COME AND MEET YOUR MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM. THE GREAT SALVATION NOW, THE GREAT DELIVERANCE NOW, THE GREAT DEFENDER NOW.
The Eighth Day of Sukkot is called Shemini Atseret that means The Eighth Day of The Assembly.
The Day is a continuation of Sukkot, and in Jewish thought symbolizes the special relationship between GOD and Israel. And I agree that there is a special relationship between GOD and Israel.
Another day, a ninth day is added to Sukkot called Simchat Torah, meaning Rejoicing of The Torah. Nice, but not Scriptural.
The Synagogues read the complete Torah in one year starting from the Saturday Shabbat Service following Simchat Torah, to the next Simchat Torah by reading A Table of Scriptural Readings each Saturday Shabbat from Genesis through Deuteronomy.
The Torah reading is then completed on Simchat Torah. And the following Saturday Shabbat, The Torah reading starts anew from the beginning with a group of Scriptural Readings from Genesis 1.1 to Genesis 6.8, and completed on Simchat Torah with the reading of Deuteronomy 33.1 to Deuteronomy 34.12.
The Feasts of The LORD that we Jewish People call the Jewish Holidays are The Saturday Sabbath, Passover, Shavuot, which is The Feast of Weeks, also called Pentecost, Yom Teruah, The Blowing of Shofars that Judaism calls Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement, and Sukkot, meaning Tabernacles.
All GOD’S Festivals are recorded in Torah in Leviticus 23.
And I believe that each one of GOD’S Festivals has a wonderful future event that will take place some time in the future, or has already taken place.
The LORD’S Appointed Festivals are for all mankind to observe. Not just for Jewish People. Because The Festivals of The LORD are The Festivals of The LORD. LEVITICUS 23.1-2
I believe the wonderful event that will be fulfilled in The Saturday Sabbath, The Seventh Day of The Week will be A TIME OF REST AND PEACE. LEVITICUS 23.3
And that will come during The Days of The Messianic Kingdom in Israel, also called The One Thousand Year Millennium, with THE MESSIAH YESHUA, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.
There is Jewish thought that the world will last six thousand years and then the end will come. And the Messianic Era with Messiah will begin.
The Messianic Era is The One Thousand Year Messianic Kingdom in Israel when Messiah Yeshua will be King over all the earth Reigning from Jerusalem. ZECHARIAH 14.9
I SEE THE PROPHETIC FULFILLMENT OF THE SATURDAY SHABBAT AS A TIME OF REST AND JOY, AND PEACE WITH THE PRINCE OF PEACE. HEBREW TANAKH ISAIAH 9.5-6, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6-7
PASSOVER WAS FULFILLED 2,000 YEARS AGO WHEN MESSIAH YESHUA GAVE HIS LIFE ON THE FIRST DAY OF PASSOVER FOR OUR ATONEMENT. LEVITICUS 23.5
Because The Passover Lamb and it’s shed blood in Egypt was a Miracle for the Children of Israel in saving them from death, The Messiah Yeshua’s preordained Death and Shed Blood on the First Day of Passover 2,000 years ago are a Miracle for His Jewish People and all Peoples saving them from eternal death. THE GREAT SALVATION NOW.
For The LORD said, I will pass through the land of Egypt this night and I will kill all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast, and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment. I AM THE LORD.
And the blood, (the blood of the lamb) shall be for you a token, a miracle upon the houses where you are. And when I see the blood I will Passover you. And the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. EXODUS 12.12-13
It is Messiah Yeshua’s Blood that He Shed that makes Atonement for our Soul. He is Our Ho’shana Rabbah. Our Great Salvation Now. LEVITICUS 17.11
THEN THERE IS SHAVUOT, THE FEAST OF WEEKS CALLED PENTECOST.
A GREAT EVENT HAPPENED ON PENTECOST IN JERUSALEM FIFTY DAYS AFTER MESSIAH YESHUA GAVE HIS LIFE FOR OUR ATONEMENT.
THREE THOUSAND JEWISH PEOPLE CAME TO FAITH IN THEIR MESSIAH YESHUA. ACTS 2.1, 37-42, ACTS 5.32
Peter, whose Hebrew name is Shimon, said to the three thousand Jewish People, Repent and be Immersed in Water (Baptism) in The Name of The Messiah Yeshua for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive The Holy Spirit.
In Judiasm, Miqveh immersion in water, called Baptism in Christianity, originated when the Priests washed their hands and their feet in a laver of brass in the Tabernacle and Temple Courtyards before they entered The House of GOD for the purpose of Sanctification and Spiritual Cleansing before The LORD. EXODUS 30.17-21
EZEKIEL 18.21 EXPLAINS WHAT REPENTANCE IS.
GOD says, If the wicked will Turn and Repent from all their sins that they have committed. (Sin is disobeying GOD, and His Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses) And keep all GOD’S Statutes, (All GOD’S Laws that are written in The Law of Moses), and do that which is Lawful and Right, You will surely live. You will not die.
That is Repentance. Turning to GOD. Stop sinning. And start living your life in Obedience to GOD and His Torah, His Law of Moses. MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 7.21-23, LUKE 8.21, DEUTERONOMY 8.3
ACTS 2.42 The three thousand continued in the Apostles Doctrine. The Apostles Doctrine is Faith in Messiah Yeshua for Atonement, Repentance, Obedience to Torah, The Law of Moses, and Miqveh Immersion, or Baptism in the Name of The Messiah Yeshua.
ACTS 5.32 EXPLAINS HOW TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.
GOD GIVES THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THOSE WHO OBEY HIM. THAT INCLUDES OBEYING HIS LAW OF MOSES THAT HAS ALL GOD’S LAWS, TEACHINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS WRITTEN IN IT.
And obviously the Three Thousand Jewish People Repented according to Biblical Repentance. They were Immersed in Water, or Baptized in The Name of YESHUA THE MESSIAH, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM for the forgiveness of their sins.
AND THEY RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT.
YOM TERUAH, THE BLOWING OF SHOFARS THAT JUDAISM CALLS ROSH HASHANAH ALSO HAS GREAT END TIMES FULFILLMENT, I BELIEVE. LEVITICUS 23.24
THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA WILL RETURN FROM HEAVEN ON THAT FUTURE DAY IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION TO ESTABLISH THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL THAT WILL BE LIKE THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
Messiah says, Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon shall not give it’s light, and the stars will fall from Heaven. And then shall appear the Sign of The Son of Man, The Messiah Yeshua in Heaven.
And all the Tribes of Israel, all the Jewish People will mourn when they see Their Messiah coming in the Clouds of Heaven with Power and Great Glory.
I believe the Jewish People will mourn because so many of us have rejected Him.
And Messiah will send His Angels with a great sound of a Shofar. And they will gather all GOD’S elect from the four winds, from one end of Heaven to the other.
That is The Resurrection of the dead in Messiah, and those people who are alive having Biblical Faith in The Messiah Yeshua. We all will be caught up together in the clouds to meet The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, MESSIAH YESHUA IN THE AIR. 1 THESSALONIANS 4.13-18, GENESIS 5.21-24, 2 KINGS 2.1,11-12
AND MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY WILL DESTROY ALL THE ENEMIES OF GOD, AND THE ENEMIES OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT FOUGHT AGAINST JERUSALEM. ZECHARIAH 14.12
And we will descend to Israel where Messiah Yeshua will establish the Messianic Kingdom for one thousand years that will be like The Garden of Eden.
And Israel’s Borders will expand to its GOD-Given Borders from A River in Egypt to The Euphrates River. GENESIS 15.18-21
AND SO SHALL WE BE WITH THE LORD GOD YESHUA THE MESSIAH FOREVER.
THEN YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT. LEVITICUS 23.27
I believe Yom Kippur is symbolic for the huge numbers of Jewish People The LORD OUR GOD will bring into The Messianic Kingdom in Israel who do not know or did not know their Messiah Yeshua. Nor will they have Atonement in their Messiah for their sins. EZEKIEL 37.1-14, ETC.
Because The Bible says, And I will pour upon the House of David, and upon the Inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of Grace and of Supplication. And they shall look upon Me, (The One Whom we pierced, Our Messiah Yeshua) And they shall mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son. And shall be in bitterness for Him as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
They will mourn for Him because they rejected Him.
And one will say to Him, What are these wounds in your Hands? Then He will answer, Those with which I was wounded in the House of My Friends. The Hebrew for Friends is AHAVAH meaning LOVE. Messiah will say, THOSE WOUNDS ARE FROM THE HOUSE OF THOSE WHOM I LOVE.
AND IMMEDIATELY THEY WILL RECEIVE ATONEMENT FROM THE ONE WHO LOVES THEM, HA SHEM ELOHIM, MESSIAH YESHUA.
And The Prophet says, “For they shall all know Me from the least of them to the greatest of them, Saith The LORD. (In the Days of the Kingdom) For I will forgive their iniquity and I will remember their sin no more.” ZECHARIAH 12.10, ZECHARIAH 13.6, JEREMIAH 31.34
AND SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES. LEVITICUS 23.34-36
I believe The First Seven Days of Sukkot are symbolic for The One Thousand Years we will be living in The Messianic Kingdom in Israel that will be like The Garden of Eden with HA SHEM, OUR MESSIAH YESHUA having Joy and Gladness, and Thanksgiving, and The Voice of Melody. ISAIAH 51.1-3
AND I BELIEVE THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT IS SYMBOLIC FOR OUR ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.
When The One Thousand Years are completed in The Messianic Kingdom in Israel, THE LORD will provide a new home for us. The New Heaven and The Holy City, New Jerusalem that is also Heaven that will come down from GOD out of Heaven prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband.
And GOD will cause today’s earth and Heaven to flee away. They will vanish.
And GOD’S Tabernacle, His House will be with us in The Holy City New Jerusalem. And GOD will live among us. And we will be His People, and GOD Himself will be with us and be our GOD.
And GOD will wipe away all tears from our eyes. And there will be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying. Neither will there be any more pain, for the former things will have passed away.
And THE LORD OUR GOD will make all things new.
And The Great City, The Holy Jerusalem will have the Glory of GOD Whose Light will be like a precious stone, clear as crystal. With a great high wall with twelve gates. And at the gates will be twelve Angels. And names written on the gates which are the names of the twelve Tribes of the Children of Israel.
And the wall of the City will have twelve foundations. And in them written the names of the twelve Apostles of The Lamb.
And the City is approximately 1,500 square miles. And the wall measures approximately 200 feet. And is built of jasper.
And the City will be pure gold like clear glass.
And the foundations of the wall are adorned with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation is jasper. The second sapphire. The third is chalcedony. The fourth is an emerald. The fifth is sardonyx. The sixth sardius. The seventh chrysolite. The eighth beryl. The ninth a topaz, the tenth a chrysoprasus, the eleventh a jacinth, and the twelfth an amethyst.
And the twelve gates are twelve pearls. And the street of the City is pure gold like transparent glass. And there is no Temple in the City for THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY AND THE LAMB are The Temple of it.
And The City has no need of the sun or the moon to shine in it for the Glory of GOD Lightens it. And The Lamb is The Light of it. And the gates are never shut by day for there is no night there.
And there is a pure river of Water of Life, clear as crystal that proceeds out of The Throne of GOD and of The Lamb. And between the street on either side of the River is the Tree of Life that bares twelve manner of fruits. And yields her fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
And there is no more curse, but the Throne of GOD and of The Lamb are in it. And we, GOD’S Servants will serve HIM. We will see HIS FACE, and HIS NAME will be in our Foreheads. YESHUA THE MESSIAH will be in our hearts and mind forever.
And there is no night there, neither any need for a lamp. Neither the light of the sun. For THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH gives us light. And we will reign forever and ever. REVELATION 20-22
That I believe is The Prophetic Fulfillment for The Feast of Tabernacles for those who do The Commandments of GOD, His Laws, Teachings and Instructions that are written in The Law of Moses. And have Atonement in The Messiah Yeshua.
Or those who Bless His Jewish People.
