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. 

Shalom,
