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. 

Shalom,
