A DAY WITH MESSIAH YESHUA ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

Shalom,

Our teaching this morning will come from The New Testament from John 7:37-40.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, A DAY WITH MESSIAH YESHUA ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

AND WITH THAT SAID LET’S READ JOHN 7.37-40

JOHN 7.37  IN THE LAST DAY, THE EIGHTH DAY, THAT GREAT DAY OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, YESHUA THE MESSIAH STOOD, AND LOUDLY SPOKE, SAYING, IF ANYONE THIRSTS LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK.

JOHN 7.2  CONFIRMS THAT IT IS THE TIME OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

AND JOHN 7.37 IS THE EIGHTH DAY, THE GREAT DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES THAT THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY COMMANDS US TO OBSERVE IN LEVITICUS 23.33-43.

AND ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, MESSIAH SAID TO THE CROWD OF JEWISH PEOPLE AROUND HIM, IF ANYONE THIRSTS, LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK.

THIS IS A PARABLE.  AND MESSIAH IS SPEAKING ABOUT BEING THIRSTY FOR THE WORD OF GOD.

AND THE THIRSTY PERSON WHO COMES TO MESSIAH TO DRINK IS THE PERSON WHO IS UNIQUE.  A PERSON WHO IS THIRSTY FOR THE WORD OF GOD.  A PERSON WHO HAS A GREAT DESIRE TO KNOW GOD AND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  A PERSON WHO WANTS TO WALK WITH GOD, AND SERVE HIM, AND OBEY HIM.  A PERSON WHO SEEKS THE TRUTH OF GOD FROM EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

AND THE THIRSTY PERSON FOR GOD FINDS THE TRUTH OF GOD IN THE BIBLE FROM THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.  THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY, JEHOVAH, THE FATHER, THE SON OF GOD, THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM.

AND THE THIRSTY PERSON WHO DILIGENTLY SEEKS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, FINDS THE TRUTH.  THE TRUTH THAT YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS GOD ALMIGHTY THE ONE AND ONLY GOD.

AND THE FOLLOWERS OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY BELIEVE EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND WE LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FOR OUR GOOD, AND FOR OUR CHILDRENS’ GOOD.

AND HERE, IN ISRAEL, ON THE EIGHTH AND GREAT DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA IS STANDING BEFORE THESE JEWISH PEOPLE SPEAKING TO THEM FACE TO FACE.  SPEAKING THE MIGHTY WORD OF GOD.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE MOMENT.

AND CERTAIN OF THESE JEWISH PEOPLE AND PERHAPS SOME NON JEWISH PEOPLE AS WELL UNDERSTOOD WHAT MESSIAH MEANT WHEN HE SAID, IF ANYONE THIRSTS, LET HIM COME TO ME AND DRINK.  THEY KNEW THAT WHAT THEY WOULD DRINK FROM THE LORD IS HIS SPOKEN WORD THAT IS LIFE, AND HEALTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

THEY MIGHT HAVE REMEMBERED THE WORDS THAT GOD SPOKE TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, WHEN HE SAID, YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND OBEY HIS VOICE, AND CLING TO HIM.  FOR HE IS YOUR LIFE AND THE LENGTH OF YOUR DAYS TO LIVE ON THE LAND WHICH THE LORD SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS, TO ABRAHAM, TO ISAAC, AND TO JACOB, TO GIVE IT TO THEM.  DEUTERONOMY 30.20

I BELIEVE THAT CERTAIN OF THESE JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE BELIEVED THAT MESSIAH YESHUA WAS GOD ALMIGHTY.  THAT GOD REVEALED THAT TO THEM EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS NO NEW TESTAMENT WRITTEN AT THE TIME.

PERHAPS THROUGH THE PROPHESY OF DANIEL CHAPTER 9.20-27, THAT PREDICTS THE EXACT TIME MESSIAH YESHUA WOULD COME THE FIRST TIME TO HIS JEWISH PEOPLE IN ISRAEL.  AND THAT WAS THE TIME.

OR ISAIAH 9.5 IN THE HEBREW BIBLE, AND NOW ISAIAH 9.6 IN THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE, THAT THE NAME OF A UNIQUE SON GIVEN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE.  AND HE, MESSIAH YESHUA, IS THAT UNIQUE SON, THE MIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER GIVEN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

HOWEVER GOD REVEALED IT TO THEM, HOWEVER GOD OPENED THEIR EYES OF UNDERSTANDING, CERTAIN JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE, THEN AND TODAY KNOW THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY.  AND HE IS THEIR LIFE, AND OUR LIFE FOR A GOOD LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

BECAUSE GOD IS EMPHATIC IN HIS SPOKEN WORD THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.  AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THAT ONE GOD.

THAT GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW, THE TORAH, CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES THAT CAN NEVER BE ABOLISHED OR CHANGED BUT REMAINS FOREVER THROUGHOUT ETERNITY FOR JEWISH PEOPLE AND ALL PEOPLES FOR OUR GOOD.

AND THE LAW OF MOSES IS NOURISHMENT AND LIFE.  AND WHERE GOD’S LAW IS ABOLISHED, THERE IS EMPTINESS.

NOT ONE WORD SPOKEN BY GOD AND WRITTEN IN THE NEW TESTAMENT STRAYS FROM GOD’S TEACHINGS IN THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND NOT ONE WORD SPOKEN BY GOD IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS ADDED TO THE LAW OF MOSES OR SUBTRACTED FROM THE LAW OF MOSES.

THE NEW TESTAMENT ALONG WITH TNAKH, THE OLD TESTAMENT IS PERFECT WHEN SEEN CLEARLY FROM THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.

AND BECAUSE GOD FORBIDS ANIMAL SACRIFICES WHILE THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER, WHO IS JEHOVAH, MADE HIMSELF A HUMAN BEING IN THE PERSON OF THE SON OF GOD, MESSIAH YESHUA, TO BE AN OFFERING FOR OUR SINS BY HIS DEATH AND SHED BLOOD ON A ROMAN CROSS IN JERUSALEM TO BE OUR ATONEMENT.

THE LAW OF MOSES IS THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD THAT NEVER ENDS OR CHANGES.  AND GOD TEACHES US THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD DOES MAN LIVE.

THEREFORE THE DISCIPLES OF MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU AND ME,  JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE ARE REQUIRED BY GOD TO LIVE OUR LIVES BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THAT IS LIFE.  A GOOD LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

EXODUS 13.9, LEVITICUS 17.8, 9, 11, DEUTERONOMY 4.2, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, JOSHUA 8.31, 34, 1 CHRONICLES 16.40, NEHEMIAH 8.8, ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53, PSALM 22.1, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 27.46, LUKE 4.4, 1 PETER 1.23-25

MESSIAH’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD DOES NOT REPLACE THE LAW OF MOSES, NOR DOES MESSIAH’S DEATH AND SHED BLOOD REPLACE THE OLD TESTAMENT.  THAT IS ANTI-GOD TEACHING.

MESSIAH GAVE HIS LIFE, AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR OUR ATONEMENT.  TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS.  THOSE ARE MESSIAH’S WORDS SPOKEN IN MATTHEW 26.28.

SO IN JOHN CHAPTER 7.37-40, A WHOLE LOT OF JEWISH PEOPLE AND PERHAPS SOME NON JEWISH PEOPLE WERE STANDING IN FRONT OF GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THEIR JEWISH MESSIAH.  SEEING GOD AND LISTENING TO THE LORD THEIR GOD TEACH ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

JOHN 7.38  AND MESSIAH SAID TO THE PEOPLE, HE THAT BELIEVES ON ME AS THE SCRIPTURE HAS SAID, OUT OF HIS BELLY SHALL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER.

OUT OF GOD FLOWS LIVING WATERS, THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT IS LIFE.

BUT GOD HAS A BLUEPRINT TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT SO THAT OUT OF YOUR BELLY THE RIVERS OF LIVING WATER, THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL FLOW OUT OF YOU.

YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA BY OBEYING EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

ACTS 5.32, ISAIAH 12.1-3, ISAIAH 44.1-3, ISAIAH 55.1-3

JOHN 7.39  BUT THIS HE SPOKE OF THE SPIRIT WHICH THEY THAT BELIEVE ON HIM SHOULD RECEIVE.  FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS NOT YET GIVEN BECAUSE YESHUA WAS NOT YET GLORIFIED.  THAT IS TO SAY, MESSIAH WAS NOT YET RAISED AND GLORIOUS IN HEAVEN.

BELIEVING IN MESSIAH YESHUA IS NOT BELIEVING IN HIM AND LIVING A LIFE OF DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD BY DISOBEYING GOD’S LAW.  BELIEVING IN MESSIAH YESHUA MEANS THAT YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES, AND YOU BELIEVE THAT MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY AS THE BIBLE TEACHES.

LET’S RETURN TO ACTS 5.32 THAT EXPLAINS THAT WE RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT BY OBEYING GOD.

SO I LOOKED UP THE GREEK WORD FOR OBEY AS IN, GOD HAS GIVEN THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THEM WHO OBEY HIM.  AND THE GREEK WORD FOR OBEY IS PEITHARCHEO IN THIS VERSE THAT MEANS, TO BE PERSUADED BY A RULER.  THAT RULER IS GOD.  AND TO SUBMIT TO AUTHORITY.  THAT AUTHORITY IS GOD.  AND TO CONFORM TO ADVICE.  ADVICE IS COUNSEL.  AND THE ADVICE AND COUNSEL FROM GOD IS TO OBEY GOD.  OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

AND THE GREEK WORD FOR OBEY ALSO MEANS OBEY.  OBEY GOD.  OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES AND YOU WILL RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

JOHN 14.21-24  IN VERSE 23, THE WORD WE IS GOD.  THE ONE GOD WHO IS THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO COMES INTO US AND MAKES HIS HOME IN US.

JOHN 7.40  MANY OF THE PEOPLE WHEN THEY HEARD THE WORDS OF MESSIAH, SAID, OF A TRUTH THIS IS THE PROPHET.

AND THEY WERE RIGHT.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE PROPHET PROPHESIED BY GOD IN DEUTERONOMY 18.15 THAT READS, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL RAISE UP TO YOU A PROPHET FROM AMONG YOU OF YOUR BROTHERS LIKE ME (MOSES).  TO HIM SHALL YOU LISTEN TO AND OBEY.

AND YES, MESSIAH YESHUA IS LIKE MOSES IN MANY WAYS.

BOTH ARE JEWISH.  BOTH ARE PROPHETS, BOTH DID MIRACLES.  THE MIRACLES THAT MOSES DID WERE BY GOD.  THE MIRACLES THAT MESSIAH DID WERE ALSO BY GOD.  BUT MESSIAH IS GOD.

MOSES AND MESSIAH YESHUA WERE BOTH DELIVERERS.  MOSES DELIVERED THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF 400 YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY TO THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL.  OF COURSE MOSES COULD NOT HAVE DONE SUCH AN IMPOSSIBLE FEAT IF NOT BY THE HAND OF GOD.

AND MESSIAH YESHUA DELIVERS US FROM SIN BY HIS ATONING DEATH.

BOTH MESSIAH AND MOSES WERE KINGS OF ISRAEL.  MOSES IN HIS DAY WAS LIKE THE KING OF ISRAEL DURING THE EXODUS.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS ALWAYS THE KING OF ISRAEL.

BOTH MESSIAH YESHUA AND MOSES ARE LAW GIVERS.  MESSIAH WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY GAVE HIS TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, ALSO CALLED THE LAW OF GOD TO MOSES, FACE TO FACE.

AND MOSES GAVE GOD’S LAW TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND TO ALL THE WORLD THROUGH THE BIBLE THAT JEWISH PEOPLE WROTE FOR ALL MANKIND TO KNOW GOD AND LIVE BY GOD’S LAWS AND TEACHINGS FOR THEIR GOOD.

BOTH MOSES AND MESSIAH YESHUA WERE AND ARE HATED.

MOSES WAS CHALLENGED FROM TIME TO TIME BY CERTAIN OF HIS PEOPLE BECAUSE GOD APPOINTED MOSES AND NOT THEM TO LEAD THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND.  THAT IS HATRED OF GOD.  THEY CAME AGAINST THE ANOINTED OF GOD.  

MESSIAH YESHUA IS HATED BY A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE.

MANY PEOPLE SIMPLY DO NOT BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT IS REJECTING GOD, AND THAT IS HATE.

AND MOST PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA BELIEVE MESSIAH IS ANOTHER GOD, THE SECOND GOD OF THE GODHEAD.  NOT THE ONE GOD OF CREATION.  THAT TOO IS HATRED, REJECTING GOD.

AND MOST PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO BELIEVE IN MESSIAH YESHUA DO NOT OBEY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.  THEY DO NOT OBEY HIS SPOKEN WORDS WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THAT GOD’S LAW IS ABOLISHED.  THAT IS HATRED OF GOD FOR DISOBEYING HIM.

AND OF A TRUTH MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE PROPHET SPOKEN OF BY GOD TO MOSES IN THE WILDERNESS.

BUT HE IS MORE THAN A PROPHET.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM.  HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT AND SO MUCH MORE.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE ALMIGHTY GOD WHO SAYS, HEAR O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD THE LORD IS ONE.

AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT.

AND THESE WORDS WHICH I COMMAND YOU THIS DAY SHALL BE UPON YOUR HEART.

AND YOU SHALL TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY TO YOUR CHILDREN.  AND YOU SHALL TALK OF THEM WHEN YOU SIT IN YOUR HOUSE, WHEN YOU WALK BY THE WAY, AND WHEN YOU LIE DOWN, AND WHEN YOU RISE UP.

AND YOU SHALL BIND THEM FOR A SIGN UPON YOUR HAND, AND THEY SHALL BE FRONTLETS BETWEEN YOUR EYES.

AND YOU SHALL WRITE THEM ON THE DOORPOSTS OF YOUR HOUSE, AND ON YOUR GATES.

EXODUS 2.1-10, EXODUS 25.21-22, DEUTERONOMY 6.4-9, DEUTERONOMY 7.9-10, DEUTERONOMY 34.10, ISAIAH 5.24, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 43.15, ISAIAH 44.6, ISAIAH 49.7, ZECHARIAH 14.9, MATTHEW 1.1, JOHN 7.7, JOHN 12.45, JOHN 14.9,

SO WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN MESSIAH YESHUA AND THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES?

IN LEVITICUS 23.33-43 IT WAS MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY WHO SPOKE TO MOSES, SAYING,

SPEAK TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL SAYING, THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH SHALL BE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES FOR SEVEN DAYS TO THE LORD.

ON THE FIRST DAY SHALL BE A HOLY GATHERING. YOU SHALL DO NO WORK OF ANY KIND.

SEVEN DAYS YOU SHALL OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD.  ON THE EIGHTH DAY SHALL BE A HOLY GATHERING TO YOU, AND YOU SHALL OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD.  IT IS A SOLEMN ASSEMBLY.  AND YOU SHALL DO NO WORK OF ANY KIND.

THESE ARE THE FEASTS OF THE LORD, MESSIAH SAID TO MOSES, WHICH YOU SHALL PROCLAIM TO BE HOLY GATHERINGS, TO OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD.  A BURNT OFFERING, AND A GRAIN OFFERING, A SACRIFICE, AND DRINK OFFERINGS.  EVERYTHING UPON IT’S DAY.

BESIDE THE SABBATHS OF THE LORD, MESSIAH SAID, AND BESIDE YOUR GIFTS, AND BESIDE ALL YOUR VOWS, AND BESIDE ALL YOUR FREEWILL OFFERINGS WHICH YOU GIVE TO THE LORD.

ALSO IN THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH WHEN YOU HAVE GATHERED IN THE FRUIT OF THE LAND, YOU SHALL KEEP A FEAST TO THE LORD SEVEN DAYS.  ON THE FIRST DAY SHALL BE A SABBATH, AND ON THE EIGHTH DAY SHALL BE A SABBATH.

AND YOU SHALL TAKE TO YOURSELVES ON THE FIRST DAY THE FRUIT OF MAJESTIC TREES, PALM BRANCHES, AND BOUGHS OF OAK TREES, AND WILLOWS OF THE BROOK.  AND YOU SHALL REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD SEVEN DAYS 

AND MESSIAH SAID TO MOSES, AND YOU SHALL KEEP IT A FEAST TO THE LORD SEVEN DAYS IN THE YEAR.  IT SHALL BE A STATUTE FOREVER IN YOUR GENERATIONS.  YOU SHALL CELEBRATE IT IN THE SEVENTH MONTH.

YOU SHALL LIVE IN BOOTHS SEVEN DAYS.  ALL THAT ARE BORN IN ISRAEL SHALL LIVE IN BOOTHS.

THAT YOUR GENERATIONS SHALL KNOW THAT I MADE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL LIVE IN BOOTHS WHEN I BROUGHT THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.

AND MOSES DECLARED TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL THE FEASTS OF THE LORD.  THE FEASTS OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, AND LOVE, AND REJOICING IN THE TRUTH, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

Shalom,

THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES IS TOMORROW, SUNDAY AT SUNDOWN THROUGH MONDAY AT SUNDOWN.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, AND LOVE, AND REJOICING IN THE TRUTH, EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

AND OUR MESSAGE WILL START FROM LEVITICUS 23.33-44 WHERE GOD’S LAWS FOR SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES ARE WRITTEN.

SO WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ LEVITICUS 23.33-44.

GOD’S LAWS FOR SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES ARE;

34/  THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES FALLS ON THE FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH HEBREW MONTH FOR SEVEN DAYS.

35/  ON THE FIRST DAY IS A HOLY GATHERING.  MEANING, GOD REQUIRES HIS PEOPLE TO ATTEND A SERVICE DEDICATED TO THE LORD ON THE FIRST DAY OF TABERNACLES.

AND NO WORK IS TO BE DONE ON THE FIRST DAY OF TABERNACLES.

36/  SEVEN DAYS YOU SHALL BRING AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD. 

GOD SPOKE THESE LAWS INTO EXISTENCE DURING TABERNACLE TIMES SOME 3,400 YEARS AGO WHEN THE OFFERING FOR ATONEMENT WAS THE SACRIFICE OF A CLEAN ANIMAL ON THE TABERNACLE ALTAR.  AND LATER THE ANIMALS WERE SACRIFICED ON THE ALTARS OF THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES FOR ATONEMENT.  ALWAYS FOLLOWED BY OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

BUT GOD FORBIDS ALL SACRIFICES WHEN THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  TODAY THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.

WITHOUT A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, OUR OFFERING TO THE LORD FOR ATONEMENT IS FAITH IN MAHSHIAKH, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WHO GAVE HIS LIFE AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.  AND FAITH IN MESSIAH MUST ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED BY A LIFE OF OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. 

THERE IS NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE.  THERE IS NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE FOR ATONEMENT BUT FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, AND OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION. 

GOD REQUIRES OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, FOREVER.  FOR GOD SAYS, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

AND GOD’S SPOKEN WORD FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.

LEVITICUS 17.8,9,11, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, PSALM 22, ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.10, MATTHEW 4.4, MATTHEW 26.27-28, LUKE 4.4, 1 PETER 1.23-25  

GOD REQUIRES EVERYONE TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS.  JEWISH PEOPLE AND NON JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE WITHOUT ATONEMENT, THE LAW OF GOD, WHICH IS THE LAW OF MOSES, REQUIRES THOSE PEOPLE TO MAKE ATONEMENT DURING HIS FESTIVAL OF SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

THE EIGHTH DAY OF TABERNACLES IS A HOLY GATHERING TO THE LORD.  AND GOD REQUIRES EVERYONE TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS, OR MAKE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA, FOLLOWED BY OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

BY HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH FAITH IN MAHSHIAKH, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, AND LIVING YOUR LIFE IN OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL REWARD YOU WITH A GOOD, HEALTHY, AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

THE EIGHTH DAY OF SUKKOT IS AN ASSEMBLY AND YOU SHALL DO NO WORK ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF TABERNACLES.

39/  THE FIRST AND EIGHTH DAYS OF TABERNACLES ARE SABBATHS.

40/  SUKKOT, THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES, IS A TIME TO REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD SEVEN DAYS.

41  GOD’S LAWS FOR TABERNACLES ARE A STATUTE FOREVER THROUGHOUT JEWISH GENERATIONS THAT IS FOREVER.  AND IT SHALL BE CELEBRATED IN THE SEVENTH HEBREW MONTH.  ISAIAH 66.22

42-43/  ALL WHO ARE BORN IN ISRAEL MUST DWELL IN BOOTHS FOR SEVEN DAYS SO THAT YOUR GENERATIONS MAY KNOW THAT GOD MADE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL DWELL IN BOOTHS WHEN HE BROUGHT THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, SAYS THE LORD.

SOME BIBLES SAY THAT THE FEASTS OF THE LORD ARE JEW’S FEASTS.  THAT IS WRONG AND POORLY SAID.  BETTER SAID, JEWISH FEASTS.  BUT THE FEASTS OF THE LORD WRITTEN IN LEVITICUS 23 ARE ALWAYS THE FEASTS OF THE LORD.

JEWISH PEOPLE CALL THE FEASTS OF THE LORD, JEWISH HOLIDAYS.  PERHAPS BECAUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND FEW NON JEWISH PEOPLE OBSERVE GOD’S FESTIVALS WHILE THE REST OF THE WORLD DOES NOT.

AND SINCE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES IS A TIME TO REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD, I THOUGHT THAT WE’LL HAVE A WORD ON LOVE WHILE WE REJOICE BEFORE THE LORD OUR GOD.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.1  EVEN THOUGH YOU AND I MIGHT SPEAK MANY LANGUAGES, EVEN THE LANGUAGE OF ANGELS, IF WE DO NOT HAVE LOVE WE SOUND LIKE ONE BIG NOISE.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.2  EVEN IF YOU AND I HAVE THE GIFT OF PROPHESY AND UNDERSTAND ALL MYSTERIES AND KNOWLEDGE, EVEN THE MYSTERIES AND KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND HAVE FAITH TO MOVE MOUNTAINS, BUT WE HAVE NO LOVE, WE ARE NOTHING.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.3  AND THOUGH YOU AND I MIGHT GIVE EVERYTHING WE OWN TO FEED THE POOR, AND WE GIVE OUR BODY TO BE BURNED, BUT DO NOT HAVE LOVE, IT PROFITS US NOTHING.

HERE IS WHAT LOVE IS;

1 CORINTHIANS 13.4  LOVE SUFFERS LONG.  LOVE HAS PATIENCE AND ENDURANCE.  ENDURANCE IS PERSEVERING THROUGH PAIN, HARDSHIP,  AND ADVERSITY.  AND LOVE IS KIND.

LOVE DOES NOT ENVY ANYONE.  ENVY RESENTS ANOTHER’S SUCCESS, OR POSSESSIONS, OR A DESIRE TO HAVE SOMETHING THAT ANOTHER PERSON HAS.  ENVY IS JEALOUSY, AND LOVE IS NOT ENVIOUS OR JEALOUS.

AND LOVE DOES NOT VAUNT ITSELF AND IS NOT PUFFED UP.  THAT IS TO SAY THAT LOVE DOES NOT BOAST OR BRAG.  LOVE IS NOT INFLATED WITH PRIDE OR VANITY.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.5  LOVE DOES NOT BEHAVE INDECENTLY.  THAT IS TO SAY, LOVE IS NOT OBSCENE, OR DIRTY, OR RUDE, OR COARSE, OR VULGAR.  AND LOVE DOES NOT SEEK HER OWN.  YOU DON’T PUT YOURSELF FIRST.  BUT RATHER YOU HAVE EMPATHY FOR OTHERS.  YOU UNDERSTAND AND SHARE THE FEELINGS OF OTHERS.

AND LOVE IS NOT EASILY PROVOKED.  THAT IS, LOVE IS NOT EASILY INCITED TO ANGER, DOES NOT RAGE.  AND LOVE NEVER THINKS EVIL.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.6  LOVE NEVER REJOICES IN SIN, BUT RATHER REJOICES IN THE TRUTH. 

AND THE TRUTH IS EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

THE HEBREW FOR “THE LAW OF GOD” IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, “TORAT HA ELOHIM.”  THE HEBREW WORD FOR GOD IN THIS SCRIPTURE IS ELOHIM, MEANING GODS, G-O-D-S.  NOT THAT THERE ARE MANY GODS, OR A TRINITY OF THREE DIFFERENT GODS.  THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND NO OTHERS.

AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS ELOHIM. 

GOD ALMIGHTY FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WITH HIS SPIRIT. 

AND GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE FATHER, THE SON, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT, OFTEN THE ANGEL OF GOD, THE ANGEL OF THE LORD AND SO MUCH MORE.  JEREMIAH 23.24

ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD, ELOHIM.

THE LAW OF GOD IS THE LAW OF MOSES THAT IS THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE.

AND TORAH IS THE LAW OF MOSES, THE LAW OF THE LORD.

AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS LAW, TORAH, THAT NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS. 

AND TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS GOOD.  ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT.

1 JOHN 5.3 

AND TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IS LIVED BY AND TAUGHT BY GOD ALMIGHTY, AND MESSIAH YESHUA, AND THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND THE ANGEL OF GOD, AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD BECAUSE ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.  THEY ARE ELOHIM, THE GIVER OF THE LAW TO ALL MANKIND.

GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW FOR ALL HUMANITY, AND THAT LAW IS THE LAW OF GOD, THE LAW OF MOSES.  NEHEMIAH 8.8

DO YOU REALIZE THAT THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION IS THE ONLY PLACE IN THE WORLD WHERE YOU CAN FIND THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD?  GOD’S LAWS, HIS TEACHINGS, HIS INSTRUCTIONS, HIS WISDOM, AND SO MUCH MORE THAT ARE THE TRUTH FOR ALL MANKIND TO LIVE THEIR LIVES. 

AND GOD’S SPOKEN WORD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS. 

IT IS FOOLISHNESS TO BELIEVE THAT JESUS OR ANYBODY ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES.  NO ONE CAN DO THAT.  THE WORD OF GOD STANDS FOREVER. ISAIAH 40.8

ARE YOU BEING TAUGHT THE TRUTH OF GOD?

SO LOVE REJOICES IN THE TRUTH.  AND THE TRUTH IS THE LAW OF GOD, THAT IS THE LAW OF THE LORD, AND ALSO CALLED THE LAW OF MOSES, AND EVERY SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

THEREFORE LOVE REJOICES IN THE TRUTH.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.7  LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS, BELIEVES ALL THINGS, HOPES ALL THINGS, ENDURES ALL THINGS.

IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT THIS WORD BEARS, AS IN LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS, MEANS TO COVER WITH SILENCE.  THEREFORE LOVE ENDURES ALL THINGS PATIENTLY IN SILENCE.  AND LOVE SUFFERS ALL THINGS PATIENTLY IN SILENCE.  WE PERSEVERE PATIENTLY.  WE KEEP ON KEEPING ON WITH PATIENCE.

AND LOVE BELIEVES ALL THINGS. 

I’VE GOT TO TELL YOU, I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT.  BELIEVING ALL THINGS THAT WE KNOW ARE NOT TRUTH?  ESPECIALLY WHEN LIES ARE TOLD AND TAUGHT ABOUT GOD.  I DON’T THINK SO.

I LOOKED UP THE GREEK WORD FOR “ALL THINGS.”  AND PAS IS THE GREEK WORD THAT MEANS, “ALL, ANY, EVERY, ALWAYS.”  I DON’T THINK SO.

I KNOW THAT EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IS TRUTH.  AND I BELIEVE THAT ALL THE WRITERS OF THE BIBLE WROTE TRUTH.  BUT SOMETHING MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN LOST IN THE TRANSLATION FROM THE HEBREW.

AND LOVE HOPES ALL THINGS.  THE WORD HOPE COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD TIK’VAH THAT MEANS EXPECT.  LOVE THEREFORE HOPES ALL THINGS, AND EXPECTS ALL THINGS.

GOD SAYS, BUT THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH, THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES.  THEY SHALL RUN AND NOT BE WEARY, AND THEY SHALL WALK AND NOT FAINT.

ISAIAH 40.31

1 CORINTHIANS 13.8  LOVE NEVER FAILS, BUT WHERE THERE ARE PROPHESIES, THEY SHALL FAIL.  MEANING, PROPHESIES WILL CEASE TO EXIST IN ETERNITY BECAUSE ALL PROPHESIES WILL HAVE BEEN FULFILLED.

TONGUES OR LANGUAGES WILL CEASE BECAUSE I ASSUME WE WILL ALL BE SPEAKING ONE AND THE SAME LANGUAGE IN HEAVEN.  THE SAME LANGUAGE GOD WILL BE SPEAKING.  AND I THINK THAT IS HEBREW.

KNOWLEDGE WILL VANISH AWAY.  I’M NOT SURE I UNDERSTAND THIS. I’M SURE WE WILL HAVE GREAT KNOWLEDGE IN HEAVEN.  BUT PERHAPS EARTHLY KNOWLEDGE WILL VANISH BECAUSE WE WILL HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HEAVENLY. 

COME TO THINK OF IT, THERE’S A WHOLE LOT OF EARTHLY KNOWLEDGE THAT SHOULD DISAPPEAR.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.9-10  FOR WE KNOW IN PART AND WE PROPHESY IN PART.

BUT WHEN THAT WHICH IS PERFECT, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY RETURNS, THEN THAT WHICH IS IN PART, THE LORD WHOM WE DO NOT KNOW FULLY, WE WILL KNOW FACE TO FACE.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.11  WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN WE SPOKE AS CHILDREN, WE UNDERSTOOD AS CHILDREN, WE THOUGHT AS CHILDREN.  BUT WHEN WE BECAME GODLY ADULTS WE PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.12  FOR NOW WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY.  THAT IS, WE DO NOT FULLY SEE GOD, NOR DO WE FULLY KNOW GOD.  BUT WHEN THE LORD RETURNS, YOU WILL BE FACE TO FACE WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE MESSIAH YESHUA.  SO NOW YOU KNOW IN PART, BUT THEN YOU WILL KNOW GOD EVEN AS GOD KNOWS YOU.  YOU WILL KNOW GOD PERFECTLY.

1 CORINTHIANS 13.13  AND NOW THERE ARE FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE.  THESE THREE.  BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.

I WILL ADD TO THAT.  LOVE IS MOST IMPORTANT OF THE THREE, BUT FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, AND A LIFE OF OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, WITH LOVE, IS THE GREATEST OF ALL IN THE EYES OF GOD.

WHAT ARE GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, AND WHAT ARE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS TO YOU FOR DOING WHAT HE SAYS?

SHALOM,

OUR TEACHING ABOUT YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT WILL COME FROM GOD’S SPOKEN WORDS IN LEVITICUS 23.26-32.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, WHAT ARE GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, AND WHAT ARE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS TO YOU FOR DOING WHAT HE SAYS?

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ LEVITICUS 23.26-32.

LEVITICUS 23.26-27  THE FOLLOWING WORDS ARE FROM GOD ALMIGHTY, THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND ALL THAT ARE IN THEM.  WHO FILLS THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WITH HIS SPIRIT WHO IS ELOHIM, GOD ALMIGHTY THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH YESHUA, THE SON OF GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND THE SAVIOR.  ALL ARE ONE AND THE SAME GOD.   BEFORE GOD THERE WAS NO GOD FORMED. NEITHER SHALL THERE BE AFTER HIM.

AND THE LORD SPOKE TO MOSES, SAYING, ALSO ON THE TENTH DAY OF THIS SEVENTH MONTH IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.  IT SHALL BE A HOLY GATHERING TO YOU.  AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS, AND OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE.

THUS ON THE TENTH DAY OF THE SEVENTH HEBREW MONTH IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

THIS IS THE DAY GOD REQUIRES HIS PEOPLE TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS.  SIN IS BREAKING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND IF THEY DO NOT HAVE ATONEMENT, GOD REQUIRES THEM TO MAKE ATONEMENT ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

IN THE DAYS OF THE TABERNACLE AND THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES, ATONEMENT WAS MADE BY THE SHED BLOOD OF A CLEAN ANIMAL SACRIFICED ON THE ALTAR OF THE TABERNACLE OR THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES.

HOWEVER GOD FORBIDS ANIMAL SACRIFICES OF ANY KIND INCLUDING SACRIFICES FOR ATONEMENT WHEN THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM.  THERE IS NO TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM TODAY.

TODAY, ATONEMENT IS MADE BY THE DEATH OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD ALMIGHTY AS A HUMAN BEING, AND HIS SHED BLOOD. 

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE.

ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.10, JEREMIAH 31.31-34, MATTHEW 26.28

ATONEMENT TODAY FOR ALL MANKIND COMES BY NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE BUT BY THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA AS A HUMAN BEING WHO IS HA SHEM GOD ALMIGHTY.

A HOLY GATHERING, OR A HOLY CONVOCATION MUST BE HELD, AND GOD’S PEOPLE SHOULD ATTEND A SERVICE TO THE LORD ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS.  THE WORD AFFLICT COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD “AH’NAH” THAT MEANS, IN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT TO “HUMBLE YOURSELF” BY SUBMITTING TO GOD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS. 

“AFFLICT FROM THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH” DOES NOT MEAN TO FAST.

FASTING IS NOT A COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD ON YOM KIPPUR, BUT TO HUMBLE YOURSELF AND SUBMIT TO THE LORD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS; THAT IS A COMMANDMENT OF GOD.

EXODUS 23.22,25, DEUTERONOMY 8.3, DEUTERONOMY 32.46-47, JOSHUA 1.7-9,  JOB 23.12, PSALM 119, JEREMIAH 15.16, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, JOHN 14.15

JOHN 14.15  MESSIAH YESHUA IS GOD ALMIGHTY

OFFERING AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD IN THE DAYS OF THE TABERNACLE AND THE FIRST AND SECOND TEMPLES WAS THE ONLY MEANS OF MAKING ATONEMENT.

BUT TODAY WITHOUT A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE TO THE LORD FOR ATONEMENT OR ANY OTHER ANIMAL SACRIFICE IS FORBIDDEN BY THE LORD.

FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF MAKING ATONEMENT FOR YOU, HA SHEM, GOD ALMIGHTY MADE HIMSELF A HUMAN BEING IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA 2,000 YEARS AGO IN JERUSALEM TO GIVE HIS LIFE, AND SHED HIS BLOOD TO MAKE HIS SOUL AN OFFERING FOR YOUR SINS.  MESSIAH YESHUA IS YOUR ATONEMENT.

AND FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SOUL.  THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  TODAY, YESTERDAY, AND FOREVER.

LEVITICUS 1.1-4, LEVITICUS 17.8-9,11, ISAIAH 40.8, ISAIAH 53.10, MATTHEW 26.28

LEVITICUS 23.28  AND YOU SHALL DO NO WORK IN THAT SAME DAY, FOR IT IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOU BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD.

GOD REQUIRES YOU TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOURSELF ON YOM KIPPUR.  AND TODAY WITHOUT A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO MAKE ATONEMENT, AND THAT IS BY THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.  THAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF GOD COMING TO ISRAEL IN THE PERSON OF MESSIAH YESHUA 2,000 YEARS AGO, TO BE AN OFFERING FOR YOUR SINS, TO BE YOUR ATONEMENT AFTER THE SECOND TEMPLE WAS DESTROYED BY THE ROMANS IN 70 CE / AD.  EVEN TO THIS DAY.

WHY IS IT SO URGENT TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF YOUR MESSIAH YESHUA?  BECAUSE GOD SAYS, WHOSOEVER HAS SINNED AGAINST ME, I WILL BLOT FROM MY BOOK OF LIFE, AND CAST THEM INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. 

SIN IS BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES.

THOSE WHO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS IN MESSIAH YESHUA, AND HUMBLE THEMSELVES TO THE LORD THEIR GOD, AND LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN ISRAEL AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN.

EXODUS 32.33, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 51.7, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 51.5, REVELATION 20.15, REVELATION 21.27, 1 JOHN 3.4

LEVITICUS 23.29 FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT AFFLICTED IN THAT DAY, OR BETTER READ, THOSE WHO DO NOT HUMBLE THEMSELVES IN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, AND SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, GOD SAYS, THEY SHALL BE CUT OFF FROM THEIR PEOPLE.  

THE HEBREW FOR, SHALL BE CUT OFF, IS VAY’NEEKH’R’TAH, MEANING, SHALL BE DESTROYED.  THAT IS WHY IT IS SO VITAL TO HAVE ATONEMENT IN MESSIAH YESHUA, THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

LEVITICUS 23.30-31 AND THE PERSON WHO DOES ANY WORK DURING YOM KIPPUR, GOD SAYS, HE WILL DESTROY FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.  THIS IS A STATUTE FOREVER.

THAT IS WHY PEOPLE GET THEMSELVES IN TROUBLE, BY DISOBEYING THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  READ THE BIBLE, IT’S ALL EXPLAINED THERE.

LEVITICUS 23.32  THE DAY OF ATONEMENT IS A SABBATH OF REST FOR YOU, AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS.  BETTER READ, YOU SHALL HUMBLE YOURSELVES BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

THE NEW TESTAMENT IS TORAH BECAUSE TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES DESCRIBES ATONEMENT, AND MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT.

EXODUS 29.36, LEVITICUS 16.6, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, ETC., LEVITICUS 17.11, MATTHEW 26.27-28

THE NEW TESTAMENT IS WRITTEN BY JEWISH PEOPLE ABOUT OUR JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS HA SHEM ELOHIM, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO CAME TO ISRAEL SOME 2,000 YEARS AGO TO FULFILL THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHESIES OF THE COMING MESSIAH.  TO GIVE HIS LIFE AS A HUMAN BEING AND SHED HIS BLOOD FOR YOUR ATONEMENT.

TODAY WITHOUT A TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM, THERE IS NO OTHER SUBSTITUTE TO MAKE ATONEMENT.  FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.  AND IT IS MESSIAH’S BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONEMENT FOR YOU.

THOSE ARE THE WORDS OF HA SHEM.  AND THOSE WORDS APPLY TODAY AS THEY DID 3,400 YEARS AGO. LEVITICUS 17.11, ISAIAH 40.8 

IN SUMMARY, THESE ARE GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR

THE TENTH DAY OF 7TH HEBREW MONTH IS YOM KIPPUR.

ON THE DAY OF YOM KIPPUR, ATTEND A SERVICE FOR THE LORD 

HUMBLE YOURSELF BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOURSELF THROUGH FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA.  MESSIHA IS THE NEW COVENANT FOR ATONEMENT WHOSE BLOOD WAS SHED FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SINS.

DO NOT WORK ON YOM KIPPUR.

WHAT ARE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS TO YOU FOR DOING WHAT GOD SAYS?

DEUTERONOMY 8.3 READS, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

YESHUA THE MESSIAH REPEATED THOSE WORDS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT IN MATTHEW 4.4 AND LUKE 4.4,

THEREFORE TO RECEIVE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS, DO AS GOD SAID TO JOSHUA.  ONLY BE STRONG AND VERY COURAGEOUS TO OBSERVE TO DO ACCORDING TO ALL THE TORAH, ALL THE LAW OF MOSES.  DO NOT TURN FROM IT TO THE RIGHT OR TO THE LEFT SO THAT YOU WILL PROSPER IN YOUR WAY.  AND THEN YOU SHALL SUCCEED.  FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.

AND THOSE WHO ARE WRITTEN IN GOD’S BOOK OF LIFE BECAUSE YOU HAVE ATONEMENT IN YOUR JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, AND YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, YOU WILL INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE IN THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL THAT WILL BE LIKE THE GARDEN OF EDEN, AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM ELOHIM, THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

THEREFORE WHEN YOU DO WHAT GOD SAYS TO DO, AND YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES LIVING BY TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS THROUGH THE DEATH AND SHED BLOOD OF YOUR MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU WILL RECEIVE GOD’S VERY GREAT REWARDS. 

YOUR BLESSINGS WILL BE GREAT ON EARTH.   GOD WILL HAVE YOU TO PROSPER IN YOUR WAY, AND YOU WILL SUCCEED, AND HAVE GOOD HEALTH.  AND GOD WILL BE WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.  AND THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN WITH THE LORD YOUR GOD, THE MESSIAH YESHUA

JOSHUA 1.7-9, ISAIAH 51.1-3, DANIEL 12.1-3, 1 JOHN 1.9, 1 JOHN 5.3, REVELATION 21.1-27, REVELATION 22.1

WHAT DOES THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH MEAN IN GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT?

SHALOM,

THIS COMING TUESDAY AT SUNDOWN THROUGH WEDNESDAY AT SUNDOWN IS YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

AND GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT ARE WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES IN LEVITICUS 23.26-32.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR TEACHING IS, WHAT DOES THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH MEAN IN GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT?

AND WITH THAT SAID, LET’S READ LEVITICUS 23.26-32, GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

VERSE 26  AND THE LORD SPOKE TO MOSES, SAYING,

VERSE 27  ALSO ON THE TENTH DAY OF THIS SEVENTH MONTH IS A DAY OF ATONEMENT.  IT SHALL BE A HOLY GATHERING TO YOU, AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS, AND OFFER AN OFFERING MADE BY FIRE UNTO THE LORD.

VERSE 28  AND YOU SHALL DO NO WORK IN THAT SAME DAY, FOR IT IS A DAY OF ATONEMENT TO MAKE ATONEMENT FOR YOU BEFORE THE LORD YOUR GOD.

VERSE 29  FOR ANY PERSON WHO IS NOT AFFLICTED IN THAT SAME DAY, THIS PERSON SHALL BE CUT OFF FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.

VERSE 30  AND ANY PERSON WHO DOES ANY WORK IN THIS SAME DAY, I SHALL DESTROY THAT PERSON FROM AMONG HIS PEOPLE.

VERSE 31  YOU SHALL DO NO MANNER OF WORK.  IT SHALL BE A STATUTE FOREVER THROUGHOUT YOUR GENERATIONS IN ALL YOUR DWELLINGS.

VERSE 32  IT IS TO YOU A SABBATH OF REST, AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS IN THE NINTH DAY OF THE MONTH AT EVENING, FROM EVENING TO EVENING YOU SHALL CELEBRATE YOUR SABBATH.

SO THE QUESTION IS, WHAT DOES THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH MEAN IN GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT?

THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH MEANS, HUMBLE, OR HUMBLE YOURSELF OR AFFLICT, AFFLICTED OR AFFLICTION.

HUMBLE YOURSELF MEANS TO BE SUBMISSIVE, MEEK, NOT PROUD OR ARROGANT.  AND SUBMISSIVE MEANS INCLINED OR READY TO SUBMIT UNRESISTINGLY, OR HUMBLY OBEDIENT.

MOST BIBLES TRANSLATE THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH IN THESE VERSES FOR YOM KIPPUR TO MEAN, AFFLICT YOUR SOULS, OR AFFLICT YOURSELVES, BE HUMBLE, OR SELF DENIAL, OR DENY YOURSELVES.

BUT WITH THESE VERSES OF GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, JUDAISM HAS TAKEN THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH TO MEAN AFFLICT YOURSELF, OR PRACTICE SELF DENIAL BY FASTING.

I MAINTAIN THAT THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH IN GOD’S LAWS FOR THE DAY OF ATONEMENT DOES NOT MEAN TO AFFLICT YOURSELF BY FASTING.  BUT ON THE CONTRARY, GOD USES THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH TO MEAN, HUMBLE YOURSELF AND OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

LET’S LOOK AT LEVITICUS 23, VERSES 27, 29, AND 32 WHERE THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH IS TRANSLATED IN MOST BIBLES TO MEAN AFFLICT YOURSELF, HUMBLE YOURSELF, DENY YOURSELF, OR SELF DENIAL.

AGAIN, I MAINTAIN THAT THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH SPOKEN BY GOD IN HIS YOM KIPPUR LAWS MEANS HUMBLE YOURSELF BY SUBMITTING TO GOD.  BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH IN THE BIBLE NEVER MEANS TO FAST.

GOD DOES NOT REQUIRE A FAST ON YOM KIPPUR.  BUT RATHER THE LORD REQUIRES HIS PEOPLE TO HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND SUBMIT TO THE LORD BY OBEYING EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS. 

TORAH SAYS, MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.  DEUTERONOMY 8.3 

FASTING IS NOT A COMMANDMENT OF GOD.

ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL JEWISH COMMENTATORS IN JEWISH HISTORY ON TNAKH, THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, AND TALMUD IS RABBI SHLOMO YITZCHAKI WHO IS BETTER KNOWN AS RASHI.  RASHI WAS BORN IN FRANCE IN 1040.

AND RASHI SAID, YOU SHALL AFFLICT IS THE TORAH TERM FOR FASTING.

I RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE.  THE TORAH TERM,  YOU SHALL AFFLICT DOES NOT MEAN FASTING.

IN GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, THE TERM, YOU SHALL AFFLICT, OR DENY YOURSELF, MEANS, YOU SHALL BE HUMBLE BY OBEYING GOD, BY OBEYING EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS.

BUT SINCE RASHI SAID THAT YOU SHALL AFFLICT IS THE TORAH TERM FOR FASTING, I RESEARCHED THE SCRIPTURE VERSES IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, WHERE THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH FOR AFFLICT OR DENY IS WRITTEN AND NEVER MEANS TO FAST. 

HERE ARE SOME VERSES IN TORAH THAT USE THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH THAT MEANS EITHER HUMBLE YOURSELF OR AFFLICT YOURSELF, OR AFFLICTED, BUT NEVER MEANING TO FAST.

EXODUS 10.3  AND MOSES AND AARON WENT TO PHARAOH AND SAID TO HIM, THUS SAITH THE LORD, THE GOD OF THE HEBREWS, HOW LONG WILL YOU REFUSE TO HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE ME.  LET MY PEOPLE GO THAT THEY MAY SERVE ME?

THE WORD HUMBLE IN THIS VERSE COMES FROM THE HEBREW LAY’AH’NOTE THAT COMES FROM THE HEBREW AH’NAH MEANING HUMBLE.

GOD DID NOT ASK PHARAOH WHY HE IS NOT FASTING BEFORE THE LORD.  GOD ASKED PHARAOH, HOW LONG DO YOU REFUSE TO HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE ME?  HOW LONG DO YOU REFUSE TO SUBMIT YOURSELF BEFORE ME?

GENESIS 15.13  AND HE (GOD) SAID TO ABRAM, KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT YOUR DESCENDANTS SHALL BE A STRANGER IN A LAND THAT IS NOT THEIRS, AND SHALL SERVE THEM, AND THEY SHALL AFFLICT THEM FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.

THE WORDS, AND THEY SHALL AFFLICT, COME FROM THE HEBREW V’EE’NU THAT COME FROM THE HEBREW AH’NAH.  GOD PROPHESIED THAT THE SEED OF ABRAHAM WILL BE AFFLICTED FOUR HUNDRED YEARS.  THAT WAS FULFILLED IN EGYPT WHEN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE AFFLICTED FOUR HUNDRED YEARS IN EGYPTIAN SLAVERY.  FASTING NEVER COMES INTO PLAY HERE.

DEUTERONOMY 8.2, 3, 16 

VERSE 2  AND YOU SHALL REMEMBER ALL THE WAY WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD LED YOU THESE FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS TO HUMBLE YOU, AND TO TEST YOU, TO KNOW WHAT WAS IN YOUR HEART WHETHER YOU WOULD KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS OR NOT.

VERSE 3  AND HE HUMBLED YOU, AND GAVE YOU HUNGER, AND FED YOU WITH MANNA WHICH YOU DID NOT KNOW, NEITHER DID YOUR FATHERS KNOW, THAT MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ONLY BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD DOES MAN LIVE.

VERSE 16  WHO FED YOU IN THE WILDERNESS WITH MANNA WHICH YOUR FATHERS DID NOT KNOW IN ORDER TO HUMBLE YOU, AND TO TEST YOU, TO DO YOU GOOD AT YOUR LATTER END.

THE WORDS HUMBLE YOU, AND HUMBLED YOU IN THESE VERSES COME FROM THE HEBREW AH’NAH THAT NEVER MEAN TO FAST, BUT TO BE HUMBLED, TO SUBMIT TO THE LORD, TO OBEY EVERY WORD THE LORD SPEAKS.

RESPECTIVELY IN THE ORDER, HUMBLE YOU, AND HUMBLED YOU IN HEBREW ARE  AH’NO’TEH’KHAH AND VY’AH’NEH’KHAH, AND AH’NO’TEH’KHAH.  ALL FROM THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH, MEANING TO HUMBLE YOURSELF.  SUBMIT TO GOD AND OBEY HIM, EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS.

LET’S AGAIN LOOK AT GOD’S LAWS FOR YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT IN LEVITICUS 23.27, 29, 32.

LEVITICUS 23.27  AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT  IN HEBREW IS V’EE’NEE’TEHM THAT COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD AH’NAH THAT MEANS, AND YOU SHALL HUMBLE.  YOU SHALL HUMBLE YOUR SOULS AND SUBMIT TO GOD BY OBEYING HIM.

THE HEBREW WORDS IN THIS SCRIPTURE DO NOT MEAN TO FAST, BUT RATHER SUBMIT TO GOD AND OBEY HIM.

AND SUBMITTING TO GOD IS HAVING ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SINS.  IT IS THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.  BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS, ALL HAVE BEEN CONCEIVED IN SIN.  AND SIN IS VIOLATING THE LAW OF MOSES.  THUS EVERYBODY HAS BROKEN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEREFORE EVERYONE IS REQUIRED TO HAVE ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS.

TODAY, ATONEMENT CAN ONLY BE MADE THROUGH FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM WHOSE DEATH AS A HUMAN BEING, AND HIS SHED BLOOD IS GOD’S OFFERING FOR YOUR SINS.  ISAIAH 53.10

AND HAVING FAITH IN THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA IS AH’NAH, BEING HUMBLE, SUBMITTING TO GOD AND OBEYING HIM.  FOR THE BLOOD OF YOUR MESSIAH MAKES ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SOUL.  THAT IS TORAH.  LEVITICUS 17.11, ISAIAH 53.10

LEVITICUS 17.8, 9, 11  HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 51.7, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 51.5, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 53.10, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2, THE NEW TESTAMENT, JOHN 12.45, JOHN 14.9

LEVITICUS 23.29  NOT AFFLICTED IN HEBREW IS  LO’TEH’OO’NEH THAT COMES FROM THE HEBREW  AH’NAH  THAT MEANS, NOT HUMBLED, OR DOES NOT SUBMIT TO GOD.  THAT PERSON SHALL BE CUT OFF FROM HIS PEOPLE.

GOD WILL NEVER CUT ANYONE OFF FOR NOT FASTING, BUT GOD WILL CUT PEOPLE OFF FOR NOT SUBMITTING TO HIM.

LEVITICUS 23.32  AND YOU SHALL AFFLICT IN HEBREW IS VEH’EE’NEE’TEHM, THAT IS FROM THE HEBREW AH’NAH, MEANING, AND YOU SHALL HUMBLE.  AND YOU SHALL HUMBLE YOURSELF AND SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD SPOKEN BY GOD.

I THINK OF THE PROPHET SAMUEL’S WORDS.  “HAS THE LORD AS GREAT DELIGHT IN BURNT OFFERINGS AND SACRIFICES AS IN OBEYING THE VOICE OF THE LORD.  BEHOLD, TO OBEY IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE, AND TO OBEY THAN THE FAT OF RAMS.”

TO OBEY GOD IS BETTER THAN FASTING.  TO OBEY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU AND ALL MANKIND. 

1 SAMUEL 15.22, ECCLESIASTES 12.13

THE HEBREW WORDS FOR FASTING ARE STOOM AND STOME.

LET’S LOOK AT THREE SCRIPTURES ABOUT FASTING.

2 SAMUEL 12.16  AND DAVID SOUGHT GOD FOR THE CHILD AND DAVID FASTED A FAST.

IN HEBREW, VAH’YAH’STAHM  DAH’VEED STOME.  MEANING, DAVID FASTED A FAST.  BOTH HEBREW WORDS, VAH’YAH’STAHM AND STOME MEAN FAST.

JUDGES 20.26  THEN ALL THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, EVEN ALL THE PEOPLE WENT UP AND CAME TO BETH EL, THE HOUSE OF GOD, AND WEPT AND SAT THERE BEFORE THE LORD AND FASTED THAT DAY UNTIL EVENING, AND OFFERED BURNT OFFERINGS AND PEACE OFFERINGS BEFORE THE LORD.

THE HEBREW  VAH’YAH’STOO’MU  FROM THE HEBREW STOOM  MEANS FASTED.

BUT THE WORDS OF THE PROPHET ZECHARIAH SUM IT ALL UP THAT SUBMITTING TO GOD BY OBEYING HIM IS NOT ONLY FAR SUPERIOR TO FASTING, BUT SUBMITTING TO GOD AND OBEYING EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE IS WHAT GOD REQUIRES OF YOU.

ZECHARIAH 7.5  SPEAK TO ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND, AND TO THE PRIESTS, SAYING, WHEN YOU FASTED AND MOURNED IN THE FIFTH AND SEVENTH MONTH, EVEN THOSE SEVENTY YEARS, DID YOU TRULY FAST TO ME, EVEN TO ME?  (THINK ON THESE WORDS)

YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT FALLS IN THE SEVENTH MONTH.  AND APPARENTLY THE JEWISH PEOPLE, WHILE THEY WERE IN BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY SOME 2,500 YEARS AGO FOR SEVENTY YEARS, FASTED ON YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.

HOWEVER IF THE PEOPLE WERE TAUGHT TO HUMBLE THEMSELVES BEFORE THE LORD ON YOM KIPPUR, AND SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, THE PEOPLE CERTAINLY WOULD HAVE FASTED TO HA SHEM, THE LORD THEIR GOD. IN FACT, GOD NEVER WOULD HAVE EXILED HIS JEWISH PEOPLE HAD THEY SUBMITTED THEMSELVES TO THE LORD AND LIVED BY EVERY WORD HE SPOKE.  

BECAUSE WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE IN SUBMISSION TO THE LORD, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS, THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL ALWAYS BE ON YOUR HEART 24/7 IN EVERYTHING YOU DO.  BECAUSE YOU LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF AND SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.

AND TO PROVE AGAIN THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD REQUIRES YOU TO SUBMIT TO EVERY WORD OF GOD ABOVE FASTING, LET’S READ ZECHARIAH 7.5-14 FOCUSING ON VERSES 12-14.

ZECHARIAH 7.5-11

ZECHARIAH 7.12-14  AND THEY MADE THEIR HEARTS AN ADAMANT STONE (UTTERLY UNYIELDING TO GOD) FROM OBEYING TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES, AND THE WORDS WHICH THE LORD OF HOSTS HAS SENT BY HIS SPIRIT BY THE FORMER PROPHETS.  THEREFORE CAME GREAT WRATH FROM THE LORD OF HOSTS.

THUS IT CAME TO PASS, THAT AS HE, GOD ALMIGHTY, CRIED, AND THEY WOULD NOT HEAR, SO THEY CRIED AND I WOULD NOT HEAR, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS.

BUT I SCATTERED THEM WITH A WHIRLWIND AMONG ALL THE NATIONS TO WHOM THEY DID NOT KNOW.  SO THE LAND (OF ISRAEL) IS DESOLATE BEHIND THEM FROM PASSING AND FROM RETURNING FOR THEY LAID THE PLEASANT LAND DESOLATE.  (BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD)

SO IN SUMMARY, WHEN YOU LIVE BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE WRATH FROM THE LORD OF HOSTS.  BUT RATHER THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL LOVE YOU WITH AN EVERLASTING LOVE, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU LIFE, HEALTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.

Shalom,
