Last week I indicated that the Feast of Sukkot would start at sundown on Tuesday, the 26th IF I could count; sadly I could not! Goodness, if the Feast of Trumpets was 10/10/10 (Sundown the 9th) and on the 15th day from that time (The Scripture commanded start of Sukkot) it could not possibly have been the 26th. What was I thinking? Thanks to those dear loved ones among you, Gilbert V, Brian and Kendra, Dan, and others that can still count beyond three and helped me! (As we all remember that the resurrection according to Yahshua would occur 3 days and 3 nights after His death using Jonah and therefore one could never apply the Passover Lamb to Ishtar or Easter in 2 days! The “church” for 1700 years has not been able to count to 3 since Constantine, a sun god worshipper, changed the times and seasons of YHWH) The Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot started Saturday night (beginning the 24th), therefore; the Last Great Day would also be a commanded Sabbath and be Saturday sundown to Sunday sundown (biblically the start of the 31st). How appropriate, the Last Great Day is just before all hallowed eve nor what many call and celebrate Halloween, the day when gremlins and spooks (demons) are roaming about to do harm. Some would indicate that this day was an anniversary of Noah’s flood when all beings of Yah’s Creation were destroyed except a preacher of righteousness and his family. Some say that is why these demonic spirits all lost their bodies they were inhabiting as all physical life perished on the earth and they were left as spirits roaming the earth seeking whom they could devour –homeless. Those of you are still practicing this pagan ritual as harmless fun may want to continue reading, then again some of us may prefer to plead ignorance when we must stand before our Creator and give account—yikes! The time has now come for the bride to make herself ready and our decisions will indicate who we are shortly.

October is often the time of the Fall Feasts of YHWH; however it is also a time of conflict among believers. While most understand that stock Halloween celebrations are rooted in the occult, many consider it harmless fun and don't know the history behind this autumn festival associated with Halloween; and they certainly don’t understand it can be an entry for the occult. Before we get to our Torah study today let’s take a look at a real and present danger and what is really the driving force of Halloween- the occult forces. Many people believe these "games" are just harmless fun, and are unaware of the very real dangers they can face by dabbling in the realm of the demonic. From a Hebraic perspective this is the “celebration” of Noah’s flood. YHWH’s judgment left them skeletons (carcasses) and spooks (demon entities with no flesh home remaining to abide in) roaming around the earth searching for a new home. In a nutshell, judgment is again headed for Planet Earth, appropriately, this time with fire. Praise YHWH, we get to choose who we will obey: (Deu 11:26) Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; (Deu 11:27) A blessing, if you obey the commandments of YHWH your Elohim, which I command you this day: (Deu 11:28) And a curse, if you will not obey the commandments of YHWH your Elohim, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which you have not known.

In ancient Britain and Ireland, (Where many of Ephraim, the ten Northern Tribes of Israel settled and then came from around the world) the Celtic festival of Samhain ("Sah-win") was observed on October 31, the end of summer. November 1 was the New Year for both Celtic and Anglo-Saxon calendars and was one of the most important and yet sinister calendar festivals of the Celtic Year. Settling in northern France and the British Isles, the Celtic people engaged in occultic arts and worshiped nature, giving it supernatural, animistic qualities. The ancient Druids were the learned priestly class of the Celtic religion. Many of their beliefs and practices were similar to those of Hinduism, such as reincarnation and the transmigration of the soul, which teaches that people may be reborn as animals. The Druids believed that on October 31, the night before their New Year and the last day of the old year, Samhain, the Lord of Death, gathered the souls of the evil dead who had been condemned to enter the bodies of animals. The Druids also believed that the punishment of the evil dead would be lightened by sacrifices, prayers and gifts to the Lord of Death. (This begins to reveal the strange link between this holiday and the non-Biblical concept of purgatory.) The souls of the dead were supposed to revisit their homes on this day, and the autumnal festival acquired a sinister significance, with ghosts, witches, hobgoblins, black cats, fairies, and demons of all kinds said to be roaming about. It was the time to placate the supernatural powers controlling the processes of nature. Halloween is, for many, a "crossover" involvement in which innocent games can lead to serious entanglement with real witches, neo-pagans, New Agers, and other occultists. A common pastime is the use of a Ouija board to attempt to contact ghosts or spirits that are believed to be roaming about. This can lead to serious consequences including demon possession. (The case studies underlying William Blatty's The Exorcist indicate that the trouble all began with a child playing with a Ouija board.) Demons have a vested interest in Halloween because it supports the occult, and it also offers novel and unexpected opportunities to control and influence people.

Forms of the occult can include mediums, channelers, clairvoyants, psychics, spiritists, diviners, mystics, gurus, shamans, psychical researchers, Yogis, psychic and holistic healers, astral travel, astrology, mysticism, Ouija boards, Tarot cards, contact with the dead, UFOs, and thousands of other practices which almost defy cataloging - even Harry Potter books (The author has now publicly announced that she is a Satanist) and movies can lead innocent children into the occult. Occultism includes Satanism, astrology, Kabbalah, Gnosticism, theosophy, witchcraft and many forms of serious magic. It includes activities seeking the acquisition of "hidden" things - which are expressly forbidden by YHWH in the Bible. Halloween practices can open the door to the occult and can introduce forces into people's lives that they are not equipped to combat. There is genuine power in the occult, but it is demonic power (Mt 24:24; Acts 13:6-11; 16:16-19; 19:18-20; 2 Cor 4:4; Eph 6:7-11, 22). Any serious study of Biblical demonology will reveal Satan as the power behind false religion, witchcraft, idolatry and the occult (Deut 32:16, 17; Ps 106:35-40; Acts 16:16-19; 1 Cor 10:19-21; 2 Thess 2:9, 10; 1 Tim 4:1ff). The Word of God makes it clear that these are all to be shunned as dangerous. There were many superstitions and false concepts in ancient Israel about which the Bible is silent. However, occultism, in any form, was punishable by death! Why? The spiritual power and reality behind idols involves demons (1 Cor 10:20; Ps 106:37). The Bible commands us to shun occult practices. Mediums and spiritists are expressly prohibited (Lev 19:31; Deut 18:10, 11, 14 2 Chr 33:6). Nowhere are such practices acceptable. Intellect alone is insufficient. "If it were possible, it would deceive the very elect." Of course, the point is not to terrify people. The ultimate goal is to point them to the source of true protection, of true salvation, of true hope. Yahshua is the victor. He's already won the battle, and he is stronger than anything Satan can throw at us. Even more important, he has triumphed over death for us. He told his disciples long ago, and still tells us today, "...Rejoice not that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven" (Luke 10:20)

Here remains our choice of real and present danger guaranteed by YHWH who will require Heaven and Earth to witness us and our choices this day! We should not fear him who can kill the body but rather FEAR HIM who can cast us into hell!

(Deu 30:13) “Nor is it beyond the sea, to say, ‘Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, and cause us to hear it, so that we do it?’ (Deu 30:14) “For the Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart – to do it. (Deu 30:15) “See, I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil, (Deu 30:16) in that I am commanding you today to love יהוה your Elohim, to walk in His ways, and to guard His commands, and His laws, and His right-rulings. And you shall live and increase, and יהוה your Elohim shall bless you in the land which you go to possess. (Deu 30:17) “But if your heart turns away, and you do not obey, and shall be drawn away, and shall bow down to other mighty ones and serve them, (Deu 30:18) “I have declared to you today that you shall certainly perish, you shall not prolong your days in the land which you are passing over the Yardĕn to enter and possess. (Deu 30:19) I have called the heavens and the earth as witnesses today against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed, (Deu 30:20) to love יהוה your Elohim, to obey His voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which יהוה swore to your fathers, to Aḇraham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Yaʽaqoḇ, to give them.”

Now with YHWH’s warnings in us, let’s get to this week’s Torah (Instructions in Hebrew not Law) Study about being asked to move away from paganism as Abraham was commanded.

This week’s Torah Scriptures: Sukkot the 8th day- The Last Great Day

Deuteronomy 14:22-16:17; 1 Kings 8:54-66; Revelation 2:1- 3:22; 20:1- 21:12

(Deu 14:22) “You shall tithe without fail all the yield of your grain that the field brings forth year by year. (Deu 14:23) “And you shall eat before יהוה your Elohim, in the place where He chooses to make His Name dwell, the tithe of your grain and your new wine and your oil, and of the firstlings of your herds and your sheep, so that you learn to fear יהוה your Elohim always. (Deu 14:24) “But when the way is too long for you, so that you are not able to bring the tithe, or when the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to put His Name is too far from you, when יהוה your Elohim is blessing you, (Deu 14:25) then you shall give it in silver, and shall take the silver in your hand and go to the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses. (Deu 14:26) “And you shall use the silver for whatever your being desires: for cattle or sheep, for wine or strong drink, for whatever your being desires. And you shall eat there before יהוה your Elohim, and you shall rejoice you and your household. (Deu 14:27) “And do not forsake the Lĕwite who is within your gates, for he has no part nor inheritance with you. (Deu 14:28) “At the end of every third year you bring out all the tithe of your increase of that year and store it up within your gates. (Deu 14:29) “And the Lĕwite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the sojourner and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates, shall come and eat and be satisfied, so that יהוה your Elohim does bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.

Hebraic thought is an evil eye is stinginess and a good eye is generous!

(Deu 15:1) “At the end of every seven years you make a release of debts. (Deu 15:2) “And this is the word of the release: Every creditor is to release what he has loaned to his neighbor he does not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the release of יהוה. (Deu 15:3) “Of a foreigner you could require it, but your hand is to release whatever is owed by your brother. (Deu 15:4) “Only, there should be no poor among you. For יהוה does greatly bless you in the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you to possess as an inheritance, (Deu 15:5) only if you diligently obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim, to guard to do all these commands which I am commanding you today. (Deu 15:6) “For יהוה your Elohim shall bless you as He promised you. And you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. And you shall rule over many nations, but they do not rule over you. (Deu 15:7) “When there is a poor man with you, one of your brothers, within any of the gates in your land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, do not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother, (Deu 15:8) for you shall certainly open your hand to him and certainly lend him enough for his need, whatever he needs. (Deu 15:9) “Be on guard lest there be a thought of Beliyaʽal in your heart, saying, ‘The seventh year, the year of release, is near,’ and your eye is evil against your poor brother and you give him naught. And he shall cry out to יהוה against you, and it shall be a sin in you. (Deu 15:10) “You shall certainly give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this reason יהוה your Elohim does bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand. (Deu 15:11) “The poor one does not cease from the land. Therefore I am commanding you, saying, ‘You shall certainly open your hand to your brother, to your poor and to your needy one, in your land.’ (Deu 15:12) “When your brother is sold to you, a Heḇrew man or a Heḇrew woman, and shall serve you six years, then let him go free from you in the seventh year. (Deu 15:13) “And when you send him away free from you, let him not go away empty-handed. (Deu 15:14) “You shall richly supply him from your flock, and from your threshing-floor, and from your winepress. With that which יהוה has blessed you with, give to him. (Deu 15:15) “And you shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Mitsrayim, and יהוה your Elohim redeemed you. Therefore I am commanding you this word today. (Deu 15:16) “And it shall be, when he says to you, ‘I do not go away from you,’ because he loves you and your house, because it is good for him with you, (Deu 15:17) then you shall take an awl and thrust it through his ear to the door, and he shall be your servant forever. Do the same to your female servant.(Deu 15:18) “Let it not be hard in your eyes when you send him away free from you, for he has been worth a double hired servant in serving you six years. And יהוה your Elohim shall bless you in all that you do.

Bring a “costly” offering- one with no spot or blemish

(Deu 15:19) “Set apart to יהוה your Elohim all the first-born males that come from your herd and your flock. Do no work with the first-born of your herd, nor shear the first-born of your flock. (Deu 15:20) “You and your household are to eat it before יהוה your Elohim year by year in the place which יהוה chooses. (Deu 15:21) “But when there is any defect in it, lame or blind, or has any evil defect, do not slaughter it to יהוה your Elohim. (Deu 15:22) “Eat it within your gates – the unclean and the clean alike – as the gazelle, and as the deer.

Don’t drink/eat the blood-(Lev 17:11) ‘For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your lives, for it is the blood that makes atonement for the life.’(Lev 17:12) “Therefore I said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘No being among you eats blood, nor does any stranger who sojourns among you eat blood.’ (Lev 17:13) “And any man from the children of Yisra’ĕl, or from the strangers who sojourn among you, who hunts and catches any beast or bird, which is eaten, shall pour out its blood and cover it with dust, (Lev 17:14) for it is the life of all flesh. Its blood is for its life. And I said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘Do not eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Anyone eating it is cut off.’

(Deu 15:23) “Only, do not eat its blood, pour it on the ground like water. (Deu 16:1) “Guard the month of Aḇiḇ, and perform the Passover to יהוה your Elohim, for in the month of Aḇiḇ יהוה your Elohim brought you out of Mitsrayim by night. (Deu 16:2) “And you shall slaughter the Passover to יהוה your Elohim, from the flock and the herd, in the place where יהוה chooses to put His Name. (Deu 16:3) “Eat no leavened bread with it. For seven days you eat unleavened bread with it, bread of affliction, because you came out of the land of Mitsrayim in haste – so that you remember the day in which you came out of the land of Mitsrayim, all the days of your life. (Deu 16:4) “And no leaven should be seen with you in your entire border for seven days neither should any of the meat which you slaughter in the evening on the first day stay all night until morning. (Deu 16:5) “You are not allowed to slaughter the Passover within any of your gates which יהוה your Elohim gives you, (Deu 16:6) but at the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell, there you slaughter the Passover in the evening, at the going down of the sun, at the appointed time you came out of Mitsrayim. (Deu 16:7) “And you shall roast and eat it in the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses, and in the morning you shall turn and go to your tents. (Deu 16:8) “Six days you eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there is a closing festival to יהוה your Elohim – you do no work.

Counting to Shavuot- or Pentecost to some-

(Deu 16:9) “Count seven weeks for yourself. Begin to count seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain. (Deu 16:10) “And you shall perform the Festival of Weeks to יהוה your Elohim, according to the voluntary offering from your hand, which you give as יהוה your Elohim blesses you. (Deu 16:11) “And you shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim, you and your son and your daughter, and your male servant and your female servant, and the Lĕwite who is within your gates, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are in your midst, at the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell. (Deu 16:12) “And you shall remember that you were a slave in Mitsrayim, and you shall guard and do these laws.

Sukkot/Tabernacles Season of our Rejoicing- a picture of the 1000 yr millennium reign of Messiah Yahshua (The seventh Day Rest- the Shabbat)

(Deu 16:13) “Perform the Festival of Booths for seven days after the ingathering from your threshing-floor and from your winepress, (Deu 16:14) and you shall rejoice in your festival, you and your son and your daughter, and your male servant and your female servant, and the Lĕwite, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates. (Deu 16:15) For seven days you shall observe a festival to יהוה your Elohim in the place which יהוה chooses, because יהוה your Elohim does bless you in all your increase and in all the work of your hands, and you shall be only rejoicing! (Deu 16:16) “Three times a year all your males appear before יהוה your Elohim in the place which He chooses: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, and at the Festival of Weeks, and at the Festival of Booths. And none should appear before יהוה empty-handed, (Deu 16:17) but each one with the gift of his hand, according to the blessing of יהוה your Elohim which He has given you.

Solomon keeps the Feasts (Moedim-Appointments) with the King of Glory!

(1Ki 8:54) And it came to be, when Shelomoh had ended praying all this prayer and supplication to יהוה, that he rose up from before the altar of יהוה, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to the heavens. (1Ki 8:55) And he stood and blessed all the assembly of Yisra’ĕl with a loud voice, saying, (1Ki 8:56)Blessed be יהוה, who has given rest to His people Yisra’ĕl, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good word, which He promised through His servant Mosheh. (1Ki 8:57) יהוה our Elohim is with us as He was with our fathers – He does not leave us nor forsake us – (1Ki 8:58) to incline our hearts to Himself, to walk in all His ways, and to guard His commands and His laws and His right- rulings, which He commanded our fathers. (1Ki 8:59) “And let these words of mine, with which I have made supplication before יהוה, be near יהוה our Elohim day and night, to maintain the cause of His servant and the cause of His people Yisra’ĕl, the matter of each day in its day, (1Ki 8:60) so that all the peoples of the earth might know that יהוה is Elohim, there is no one else. (1Ki 8:61) “Let your heart therefore be perfect to יהוה our Elohim, to walk in His laws and guard His commands, as at this day.” (1Ki 8:62) And the sovereign and all Yisra’ĕl with him made slaughterings before יהוה. (1Ki 8:63) And Shelomoh brought peace offerings, which he slaughtered to יהוה, twenty-two thousand bulls and one hundred and twenty thousand sheep. Thus the sovereign and all the children of Yisra’ĕl dedicated the House of יהוה. (1Ki 8:64) On that day the sovereign set apart the middle of the courtyard that was in front of the House of יהוה, for there he made burnt offerings, and the grain offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar that was before יהוה was too small to contain the burnt offerings, and the grain offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings. (1Ki 8:65) And Shelomoh at that time observed the Festival, and all Yisra’ĕl with him, a great assembly from the entrance of Ḥamath to the wadi of Mitsrayim, before יהוה our Elohim, seven days and seven days – fourteen days. (1Ki 8:66) On the eighth day he sent the people away. And they blessed the sovereign, and went to their tents rejoicing and glad of heart for all the goodness that יהוה had done for His servant Dawiḏ, and for Yisra’ĕl His people.

Here are instructions for the Day of Jacob’s Trouble

(Rev 2:1) “To the messenger of the assembly of Ephesos write, ‘He who is holding the seven stars in His right hand, who is walking in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, says this: (Rev 2:2) “I know your works, and your labor, and your endurance, and that you are not able to bear evil ones, and have tried those who say they are emissaries and are not, and have found them false; (Rev 2:3) and you have been bearing up and have endurance, and have labored for My Name’s sake and have not become weary. (Rev 2:4) “But I hold this against you, that you have left your first love. (Rev 2:5) “So remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works, or else I shall come to you speedily and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. (Rev 2:6) “Yet this you have, that you hate the works of the Nikolaites (Nicolaitans- Nico- conquer/control- Laity- people; or a system of church that conquers the people or makes them insignificant parts of the Body of Messiah) which I also hate. (Rev 2:7) “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes1 I shall give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of Elohim.” ’2 Footnote: 1This word (and its noun) is used 17 times in the Book of Revelation. Remember: the name Yisra’ĕl means to overcome with Ěl. 2See 22:2&14.

The self appointed rulers “illuminated ones” who are the wealthiest of this planet- call themselves Jews but they are not---since Judah means praiser of YHWH!

(Rev 2:8) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Smurna write, ‘this says the First and the Last, who became dead, and came to life: (Rev 2:9) “I know your works, and pressure, and poverty – yet you are rich – and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yehuḏim and are not, but are a congregation of Satan. (Rev 2:10) “Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. See, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, in order to try you, and you shall have pressure ten days. Be trustworthy until death, and I shall give you the crown of life. (Rev 2:11) “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes shall by no means be harmed by the second death.” ’1 Footnote: 1See 20:6.

Bi’lam was a prophet for profit

(Rev 2:12) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write, ‘He who has the sharp two-edged sword, says this: (Rev 2:13) “I know your works, and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is. And you hold fast to My Name, and did not deny the belief in me, even in the days in which Antipas was my trustworthy witness, who was killed near you, where Satan dwells. (Rev 2:14) “But I hold a few matters against you, because you have there those who adhere to the teaching of Bilʽam, who taught Balaq to put a stumbling-block before the children of Yisra’ĕl, to eat food offered to idols, and to commit whoring. (Rev 2:15) “So you also have those who adhere to the teaching of the Nikolaites, which teaching I hate. (Rev 2:16) “Repent, or else I shall come to you speedily and fight against them with the sword of My mouth. (Rev 2:17) “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I shall give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I shall give him a white stone, and on the stone a renewed Name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” ’

Whoring is idolatry or spiritual adultery following after pagan traditions and saying we are worshipping YHWH! (Jer 10:2) Thus says YHWH, learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. (Jer 10:3) For the customs of the people are vain: for one cut a tree out of the forest (these were evergreen trees), the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. (Jer 10:4) They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers that it move not.

(Rev 2:18) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Thyatira write, ‘this says the Son of Elohim, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like burnished brass: (Rev 2:19) “I know your works, and love, and service, and belief, and your endurance. And as for your works, the last are more than the first. (Rev 2:20) “But I hold against you that you allow that woman Izeḇel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and lead My servants astray to commit whoring and to eat food offered to idols.(Rev 2:21) “And I gave her time to repent of her whoring, and she did not repent. (Rev 2:22) “See, I am throwing her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their works. (Rev 2:23) “And I shall slay her children with death. And all the assemblies shall know that I am the One searching the kidneys and hearts. And I shall give to each one of you according to your works. (Rev 2:24) “And to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not possess this teaching, and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they call them, I am not putting on you another burden. (Rev 2:25) “But hold fast what you have until I come. (Rev 2:26) And he who overcomes, and guards My works until the end, to him I shall give authority over the nations, (Rev 2:27) and he shall shepherd them with a rod of iron, as the potter’s vessels shall be broken to pieces,1 as I also have received from My Father. Footnote: 1Ps. 2:9. (Rev 2:28) “And I shall give him the morning star. (Rev 2:29) “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’

If we are not watching and praying as Yahshua commanded (sober and alert) Yahshua will come as a thief in the night- we will have no clue about the Feast dates which are Moedim/appointments He has with his people

(Rev 3:1) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Sardis write, ‘He, who has the seven Spirits of Elohim and the seven stars, says this, “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. (Rev 3:2) Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete before Elohim. (Rev 3:3) “Remember, then, how you have received, and heard. And watch and repent. If, then, you do not wake up, I shall come upon you as a thief, and you shall not know at all what hour I come upon you. (Rev 3:4) “Nevertheless, you have a few names in Sardis who have not defiled their garments. And they shall walk with Me in white, because they are worthy. (Rev 3:5) He who overcomes shall be dressed in white robes, and I shall by no means blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I shall confess his name before My Father and before His messengers. (Rev 3:6) “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’

He knows us by our actions- our doing His commands- our works! We don’t enter the kingdom by our works but by faith in Yahshua who is the DOOR, the WAY and the TRUTH! (John 14:21 Yahshua speaks- “he who has my commands and obeys- that is the one who loves me.”

(Rev 3:7) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Philadelphia write, ‘He who is set-apart, He who is true, He who has the key of Dawiḏ, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens, says this: (Rev 3:8) I know your works – see, I have set before you an open door, and no one is able to shut it – that you have little power, yet have guarded My Word, and have not denied My Name. (Rev 3:9) “See, I am giving up those of the congregation of Satan, who say they are Yehuḏim and are not, but lie. See, I am making them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. (Rev 3:10) “Because you have guarded My Word of endurance, I also shall guard you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the entire world, to try those who dwell on the earth. (Rev 3:11) “See, I am coming speedily! Hold what you have that no one take your crown. (Rev 3:12) He who overcomes, I shall make him a supporting post in the Dwelling Place of My Elohim, and he shall by no means go out. And I shall write on him the Name of My Elohim and the name of the city of My Elohim, the renewed Yerushalayim, which comes down out of the heaven from My Elohim, and My renewed Name. (Rev 3:13) “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’

Luke warm believers—wake up! Our money and stuff will not deliver us in the Day of the Lord!

(Rev 3:14) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodikeia write, ‘The Amĕn, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, 1 says this: Footnote: 1Col. 1:15, Heb. 1:6. (Rev 3:15) I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. (Rev 3:16) “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth. (Rev 3:17) Because you say, ‘Rich I am, and I am made rich, and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked. (Rev 3:18) I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire,1 (faith)so that you become rich; and white garments (Set-apart-pure), so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. (Many have been blinded by the god of this world and are fast asleep on their way to a terrible fate of hells eternal flames! Remember the gates of hell will not prevail against us who pray and only believe for loved ones!) Footnote: 1Ps. 19:10, Ps. 119:72 & 127, Prov. 30:5. (Rev 3:19) As many as I love, I reprove and discipline. So be ardent and repent. (Rev 3:20) “See, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (Rev 3:21) “To him who overcomes I shall give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.(Rev 3:22) “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’ ”

During Yahshua’s millennial reign (1000 years) on the earth during our Sabbath rest hasatan will be locked up! At the end of the thousand year rest it becomes the 8th day and like our Last Great Day of Sukkot (the 8th day) we receive the fulfillment of LIFE EVERLASTING and a New Heaven and New Earth!

(Rev 20:1) And I saw a messenger coming down from the heaven, having the key to the pit of the deep and a great chain in his hand. (Rev 20:2) And he seized the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, (Rev 20:3) and he threw him into the pit of the deep, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should lead the nations no more astray until the thousand years were ended. And after that he has to be released for a little while. (Rev 20:4) And I saw thrones – and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them – and the lives of those who had been beheaded because of the witness they bore to יהושע and because of the Word of Elohim, and who did not worship the beast, nor his image, and did not receive his mark upon their foreheads or upon their hands. And they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years (Rev 20:5) (and the rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended) – this is the first resurrection. (Rev 20:6) Blessed and set-apart is the one having part in the first resurrection. The second death possesses no authority over these, but they shall be priests of Elohim and of Messiah, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. (Rev 20:7) And when the thousand years have ended, Satan shall be released from his prison, (Rev 20:8) and he shall go out to lead the nations astray which are in the four corners of the earth, Goḡ and Maḡoḡ, to gather them together for battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. (Rev 20:9) And they came up over the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the set-apart ones and the beloved city. And fire came down from Elohim out of the heaven and consumed them. (Rev 20:10) And the devil, who led them astray, was thrown into the lake of fire and sulphur where the beast and the false prophet are. And they shall be tortured day and night forever and ever. (Rev 20:11) And I saw a great white throne and Him who was sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. (Rev 20:12) And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before the throne, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged from what was written in the books, according to their works. (Rev 20:13) And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and death and the grave gave up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. (Rev 20:14) And the death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death.1 Footnote: 1See 2:11, 20:6, and 21:8. (Rev 20:15) And if anyone was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Here is our reward for repentance and waking up NOW!

(Rev 21:1) And I saw a renewed heaven and a renewed earth, for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. (Rev 21:2) And I, Yoḥanan, saw the set-apart city, renewed Yerushalayim, coming down out of the heaven from Elohim, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Rev 21:3) And I heard a loud voice from the heaven saying, see, the Booth of Elohim is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and Elohim Himself shall be with them and be their Elohim. (Rev 21:4) “And Elohim shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, nor mourning, nor crying. And there shall be no more pain, for the former matters have passed away.” (Rev 21:5) And He who was sitting on the throne said, “See, I make all matters new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and trustworthy.” (Rev 21:6) And He said to me, “It is done! I am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Taw’, the Beginning and the End. To the one who thirsts I shall give of the fountain of the water of life without payment. (Rev 21:7) The one who overcomes shall inherit all this, and I shall be his Elohim and he shall be My son. (Rev 21:8) “But as for the cowardly (fearful), and untrustworthy, and abominable, and murderers, and those who whore, and drug sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the false (liars and pretenders), their part is in the lake which burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.” (Rev 21:9) And one of the seven messengers who held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and spoke with me, saying, “Come, I shall show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” (Rev 21:10) And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the set-apart Yerushalayim, descending out of the heaven from Elohim, (Rev 21:11) having the esteem of Elohim, and her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal, (Rev 21:12) and having a great and high wall, having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve messengers, and names written on them, which are those of the twelve tribes of the children of Yisra’ĕl:1 Footnote: 1See Eze. 47:22-23, Eze. 48:31-34.
