Y’all are doing what?

imageA few notes on the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) (Booths) to answer some frequently asked questions on why our family observes this Biblical holiday every year.
The Hebrew word sukkah (singular) and Sukkot (plural) means booth or tabernacle (Gen. 33:17).

Many scholars believe Jesus was born in a Sukkah, Booth or Tabernacle during the Feast of Tabernacles.In John 1:14, the word “dwelt” is literally “tabernacled” in the Greek (Strong’s 4637 below). He came to tabernacle with us!

Feast of Tabernacles (Lev 23, Deut 16) is a week-long annual “appointed time” and is a Biblical festival commemorating the 40-year journey of the Israelites in the wilderness and also pointing to the second coming of Christ where we will Tabernacle together in the millennial reign with Jesus as the King of Kings.
It is neat to read how His people “rediscovered” the Feast days and experienced a revival and thirst for His Word and desire to obey!

“And all the assembly of those who had returned from the captivity made booths and lived in the booths, for from the days of Jeshua the son of Nun to that day the people of Israel had not done so. And there was very great rejoicing. And day by day, from the first day to the last day, he read from the Book of the Law of God. They kept the feast seven days, and on the eighth day there was a solemn assembly, according to the rule.”
‭‭Nehemiah‬ ‭8:17-18‬

This festival is described in Leviticus 23:41 as a statute “FOREVER”; (Strong’s number 5769) and a feast to the LORD (no, not a Jewish only feast) that all believers (including those who are grafted in- Romans 11) will observe even in the end times. (Zechariah 14).

“Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths.” ‭‭Zechariah‬ ‭14:16‬ ‭

Why wait for the End Times?
Let’s start rehearsing for His return today!!
Let’s get fired up for rediscovering and living out His Word!
Psst… Pass the Word.

Tomorrow, Sunday, June 21, marks the last time I will be at Lexington Baptist Church bandicam 2015-06-20 16-30-29-536teaching Sunday School.  When our series started, I fully expected to only be there 6-8 weeks.  Abba had other ideas and I have been blessed to be with this class for 23 or so weeks.  Each week was a challenge and a joy as we learned and were challenged to dig deeply into the Word of Yehovah.

We began with the goal of recognizing Yeshua in the Tanach (Old Testament) and then moved to understanding a few of Yeshua’s teachings and have finished with a number of weeks looking at the Apostle Paul and some of his hard verses.  Certainly, the subject matter is so broad that we have only been able to touch on topics, but the goal has been to open the doors to greater understanding and equip the class with a desire…

Which Way?

John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Deuteronomy 9:16
When I looked, I saw that you had sinned against the Lord your God; you had made for yourselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. You had turned aside quickly from the way that the Lord had commanded you.

Deuteronomy 11:26-28
See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse — the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.
your way my wayDeuteronomy 12:4 
You must not worship the Lord your God in their way.

Deuteronomy 12:31
You must not worship the Lord your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the Lord hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods.

Deuteronomy 13:5
That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he preached rebellion against the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery; he has tried to turn you from the way the Lord your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you.

Malachi 2:8
But you have turned aside from the way. You have caused many to stumble by your instruction.his wayLuke 1:76
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways, to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins because of the tender mercy of our God whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Acts 18:26

Acts 19:23
And about that time there arose a great commotion about the Way.

Acts 24:14

Rev 15:3
And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb saying, Great and amazing are you deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations!

Why The Original Language Matters…

Here is a short write up that Rob Skiba put together on Hebrews regarding the priesthood.  We also see a great example of how important it is to search out what the original language actually says.  Rob’s write up is awesome and succinct, backed up with scripture at each point… Just so… Clear!

Finding Fault With Perfection… Or With Translation? (Rob Skiba)

Awesome and succinct!
Backed up with scripture at each point
Just so… Clear…

I pray the Father will grant to me this ability to so clearly communicate, so I too can help others to ‘get it’…

So many, like me, are forever grateful to the Father for those like Rob Skiba and many others that confirm what we are re-learning with eyes to see, ears to hear, a heart to receive the Word… AKA, the Truth, the Law, the Life, the Light, the Seed…. Jesus the walking, talking Torah!  Yeshua!!

Our family loves to read a mix of different versions of scripture because seeing the differences prompts us to know which words to go researching in Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic, but each member of our family has a hard copy of the Scriptures (ISR); one of the reasons… because it restores our Father’s Name… Our favorite at the moment for sure…

Here is a great chart found in the extremely helpful resources by 119 Ministries.
