Shabbat Shalom Loved One! (This study is attached and available at the website below)

This study is attached for ease of print and study format- YHWH is restoring all things; that includes us who were once DRY BONES! All who KNOW HIM and call on His name will be delivered- HalleluYAH! See “News You May Not Have Heard” found at free video and audio presentations- building our trust in our coming King! Weekly Torah Studies

Why are we on a different schedule of the Torah Cycle than the mainstream and the Orthodox? For me it is about restoration of all things- explanation continued at end of this week’s study-

This is the week of The Feast of Tabernacles starting on the evening of Monday, October 1sth- however; since most Feasts have to be planned way in advance to allow for availability and planning- many (In the USA anyway) will start on the last weekend of September- which is okay as we are not back in Jerusalem and “KEEPING THE FEASTS” we are only still scattered and practicing obedience best we can. Every year during the Fall Feasts I remember my good friend Gilbert in Texas and the T shirt he had made; on the front side it exclaimed “KEEP THE FEASTS” whereas on the back it gave reason—Or Be A Feast!  (Rev 19:17)  And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great Elohim Yahweh; (Rev 19:18)  That you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. It is of great importance that we learn how important Yahweh considers our humbling ourselves to obey Him really is!

One of the first things we learn from the Feast of Tabernacles is that in camping- PLANNING AHEAD IS EVERYTHING! The BRIDE will really make herself ready! This is such a beautiful picture of our times in the wilderness ahead of us:

(Rev 12:6)  And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of Yahweh that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (Rev 12:7)  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, (Rev 12:8) and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. (Rev 12:9)  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Rev 12:10)  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, now is come salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of Yahweh, and the power of Messiah Yahshua: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our Elohim Yahweh day and night.

(Rev 12:11)  And they (us) overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. (Rev 12:12)  Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. (Rev 12:13)  And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. (Rev 12:14)  And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time from the face of the serpent.

Our understanding for our obedience of Keeping His commanded Feasts (These have erroneously been called “Jewish” Feasts- but they are Biblically described as Feasts of Yahweh; in caps THE LORD) as such; should include such an understanding as the absolute wrath of Yah on those who say they love Him but by actions say they “hate” Him. Esau was hated by Yahweh for his lack of obedience to His ways and his inability or total lack of concern to repent. Our Creator is serious and upon His first arrival was the lamb of Yahweh sacrifice- now He is returning as a KING and He will finish the remaining part of the Scripture He quoted in Isaiah 61: (He had stopped in mid-sentence which I show in RED- because the first time Messiah came He was not come to offer vengeance yet)

(Isa 61:1)  The Spirit of the Master יהוה is upon me, because יהוה has anointed me to bring good news to the meek. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim release to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, (Isa 61:2) to proclaim the acceptable year of יהוה, and the day of vengeance of our Elohim, to comfort all who mourn, (Isa 61:3) to appoint unto those who mourn in Tsiyon: to give them embellishment for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. And they shall be called trees of righteousness, a planting of יהוה, to be adorned.

The GOOD NEWS is that we will soon all be back in Jerusalem KEEPING THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES! Hehe so it is easy to “chill” and draw near to Him as we learn to TRUST AND OBEY!

Below we’ll keep this Feast of Tabernacles during the Millennium reign of Yahshua (Jesus) loved one, so I expect that is a good enough reason for Truth Searchers like us to start learning obedience in “Keeping the Feasts!” Remember the Hebrew idiom “The Day that no man knows the day or the hour!” (Feast of Trumpets) then 15 days later is the Feast of Tabernacles- Season of our Joy!

(Zechariah 14:16)  And it shall be that all who are left from all the gentiles which came up against Yerushalayim, shall go up from year to year to bow themselves to the Sovereign, יהוה of hosts, and to observe the Festival of Booths (Tabernacles/Sukkot). (Zechariah 14:17)  And it shall be, that if anyone of the clans of the earth does not come up to Yerushalayim to bow himself to the Sovereign (King), יהוה of hosts, on them there is to be no rain.

How do we know when the Biblical year starts and when we are to keep His Biblically prescribed Feast dates loved one? YHWH put the planets and stars in their courses for seasons days and years. The moon circles the Earth every 29.54 days so we can only have a 29 day month or a 30 day month- never a 28 or 31 day month like Pope Gregory determined. So YHWH is in control of what time it is in His universe! The Biblical NEW YEAR started at sundown Monday April 4! Here is how we determine the real start of the year! (Exodus 12:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon in the land of Mitsrayim, saying, Exodus 12:2)This month is the beginning of months for you; it is the first month of the year for you. (Just before Passover)

Why is that of any importance to you and me living today? Because many of the body of believers have been blinded by the enemy of our souls and still follow vain traditions which are mostly manmade subtractions, additions and traditions of “Churchianity” handed down from the anything but a “Holy” Roman Empire ruler Constantine; who was a sun god worshipper and enforced these “manmade doctrines” with the penalty of death for rejection. Please understand we should know when the year starts so we can observe and do His commanded Holy Days (Holidays) and not do vain observations that He considers abominations. Many Christians honor all the TRADITIONAL holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Lent and never consider their pagan roots which were orchestrated by Rome. Some know that the day of the sun (Sun-day) was rooted from sun god worship and Easter was the pagan fertility goddess, where the Easter Priests (Not Christians or follower of Messiah) - would impregnate the virgins on the sunrise service and sacrifice the 3 month old babies from the prior years' sunrise service, dipping the eggs of Easter into the freshly sacrificed babies blood and declare- HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE! Have a prosperous and fertile year! This was their form of Happy New Year!  Lent was the 40 days of fasting and weeping for Tamuz followed by killing the pig that killed Tammuz (on a hunting expedition) and having that for Easter ham- goodness- Loved Ones-think maybe these traditions are possibly an abomination to our Creator? He taught us to NOT LEARN the ways of the heathen and say we are worshipping Him! (Jeremiah 10:2)  Thus said יהוה, Do not learn the way of the gentiles, 1 and do not be awed by the signs of the heavens, for the gentiles are awed by them.2 Footnotes: 1Lev. 18:3, Dt. 12:30 & 18:9, Ezek. 11:12 & 20:32, Eph. 4:17, 1 Peter 4:3. 2Dt. 4:19 & 17:3. He also COMMANDED US: (Deuteronomy 4:2)Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not subtract from it1, so as to guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I am commanding you. Footnote: 1See also 12:32, Prov. 30:6, Rev. 22:18-19. Do you and I suppose he has changed His mind about that; so we think it okay to ADD these manmade traditions as holy days and festivals (holidays)? And SUBTRACT His Feasts and festivals?

Do "we" worship in VAIN? Maybe we should consider doing only what He says and not what tradition allows-THESE ARE THE DAYS OF REPENTANCE- SEEK A FEAST SITE (Internet) AND ATTEND LOVED ONE- YOU WILL BE BLESSED BY KEEPING THIS APPOINTMENT (MOEDIM) WITH OUR CREATOR!

Really- Worship in VAIN? Goodness – maybe we should really reconsider Loved Ones- another Scripture comes to mind- “Come out of her my people or partake in her plagues!”  Loved Ones, should we worship Him the way He says or obey men and our traditions? Is obedience to the Word made flesh that dwelled among us really important?  Is our own judgment possibly only a heartbeat away? Do we really want to nullify all the promises received from obedience- given in the Word? We should take the time to consider the word “VAIN”.

Mat 15:3 He answering, said to them, “Why do you also transgress the command of Elohim1 because of your tradition? Footnote: 1See Mat. 5:20. Mat 15:4 “For Elohim has commanded, saying, ‘Respect your father and your mother,’ and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’  Mat 15:5  “But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me has been dedicated,”  Mat 15:6  is certainly released from respecting his father or mother.’ So you have nullified the command of Elohim by your tradition.  Mat 15:7 “Hypocrites! Yeshayahu rightly prophesied about you, saying, Mat 15:8 ‘This people draw near to me with their mouth, and respect me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. Mat 15:9But in vain do they worship me, teaching as my doctrines- the commands of men.’ ”1 Footnote: 1Isa. 29:13, Mk. 7:7, 2 Kings 17:19.

Obedience is LOVE: (John 14:10) “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak from myself. But the Father who stays in me does His works. (John 14:11)  “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in me, otherwise believe me because of the works themselves. (John 14:12)  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do he shall do also. And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father. (John 14:13)  “Whatever you ask in my name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son. (John 14:14)  “If you ask whatever in my Name, I shall do it. (John 14:15)  If you love me, you shall guard (keep) my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6. (John 14:16)  “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – (John 14:17) the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. (John 14:18)  “I shall not leave you orphans – I am coming to you. (John 14:19)  “Yet a little while, and the world no longer sees me, but you shall see me, because I live, and you shall live. (John 14:20)  “In that day you shall know that I am in my Father and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:21)  He who possesses my commands and guards (keeps) them; it is he who loves me. And he who loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.”

Why is this even important to us today? Because if we cannot determine when the year starts we cannot observe His commands out of loving obedience! Then we’d miss the Feast of our Rejoicing- hehe “Missing” would be tragic because it is WONDERFUL!

Do we realize that IN THE BEGINNING Yahshua (Jesus) was the word and is the word even at Mt Sinai? Malachi 4 and Hebrews 13:8 testifies that He changes not and is the same yesterday, today and forever- what part of “forever” is so difficult for us to understand? The enemy has planted many tares and blinded many of us into thinking our religious traditions are acceptable to our King! However; He claims we are worshipping Him in VAIN! Please let us not use the excuse that those words have passed away because Yahshua addressed that thought beforehand and leaves us no excuse when we stand in His presence; (Mat 5:17)  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, (Torah- Instructions) or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. (Mat 5:18)  For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (Mat 5:19)  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. So; is it ALL fulfilled? What is fulfilled were the Spring Feasts of YHWH; He was and is the Passover Lamb, He is the High Priest who had to be in seclusion until the First Fruits Offering and could not be touched (“Don’t touch me Mary- I have not yet ascended to the Father”) then the graves opened and many were seen around Jerusalem risen from the dead as He was the first of many of the First Fruits Offering; then on Shavuot (we now call Pentecost) He poured out His Spirit that His commands would no longer be impossible (burdensome) to keep. These were and are the Spring Feasts he and we start our year with- they are the shadow picture of things to come. The Fall Feasts have not yet been fulfilled- we are finally; during our generation, approaching the Feast of Trumpets and at the LAST TRUMPET, the dead in Messiah rise first; then 10 days later we have the DAY OF ATONEMENT or some of us call Judgment Day; then 5 days later we have The Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkoth when we tabernacle or dwell with Him forever; then on the eighth day of this Feast we have the LAST GREAT DAY or the WEDDING FEAST OF THE LAMB. Once again; these Fall Feasts are not yet fulfilled. So what does Yahshua say about this; are there still a heaven and an earth? If there is a heaven and earth still we are commanded to: (Mat 5:17) think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. (Mat 5:18)  For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (Mat 5:19)  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Remember also LOVED ONES- WE FEAR NOT! We fast and repent getting rid of our unbelief and replacing it with TRUSTING HIM! (Psalms 20:5) We sing of your deliverance, and in the Name of our Elohim we set up a banner! יהוה (YHWH) does fill all your requests! (Psalms 20:6)  Now I know that יהוה (YHWH) shall save (deliver) His Anointed; He answers him from His set-apart heavens with the saving might of His right hand. (Psalms 20:7)  Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we remember (trust in) the Name of יהוה (YHWH) our Elohim. (Psalms 20:8)  They, they have bowed down and fallen; But we have risen and are established. (Psalms 20:9)  Save us (YHWH) יהוה! Let the Sovereign answer us in the day we call.

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures: SUKKOT “Feast of Tabernacles!”

Leviticus 22:26-23;44; Numbers 29:12-16; Zechariah 14:1-21; Revelation 21:1-7

(Lev 22:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 22:2) “Speak to Aharon and his sons, that they separate themselves from the set-apart offerings of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and that they do not profane my set-apart Name in what they set apart to Me. I am יהוה. (Lev 22:3)  “Say to them, ‘any man of all your offspring throughout your generations who draws near the set-apart Offerings which the children of Yisra’ĕl set apart to יהוה, while he has uncleanness upon him, that being shall be cut off from before Me. I am יהוה. (Lev 22:4)  ‘Any man of the offspring of Aharon, who is a leper or has a discharge, does not eat the set-apart offerings until he is clean. And whoever touches what is rendered unclean by a corpse, or a man who has had an emission of semen, (Lev 22:5) or a man who touches any creeping creature by which he would be made unclean, or any being by whom he would become unclean, even any of his uncleanness; (Lev 22:6) the being who has touched it shall be unclean until evening, and does not eat the set-apart offerings, but shall bathe his body in water. (Lev 22:7)  ‘And when the sun goes down he shall be clean, and afterward eat the set-apart offerings, because it is his food. (Lev 22:8)  ‘He does not eat that which dies or is torn by beasts, becoming unclean by it. I am יהוה. (Lev 22:9)  ‘And they shall guard My Charge, lest they bear sin for it and die thereby, when they profane it. I יהוה set them apart. (Lev 22:10)  ‘And no stranger eats the set-apart offering. A sojourner with the priest, or a hired servant, does not eat the set-apart offering. (Lev 22:11)  ‘But when the priest buys a being with his money, he does eat of it. And one who is born in his house does eat his food. (Lev 22:12)  ‘And when a priest’s daughter is married to a stranger, she does not eat of the set-apart offerings. (Lev 22:13)  ‘But when a priest’s daughter is a widow or put away, and has no child, and has returned to her father’s house as in her youth, she does eat her father’s food, but no stranger eats of it. (Lev 22:14)  ‘And when a man eats the set-apart offering by mistake, then he shall give a set-apart offering to the priest, and add one-fifth to it. (Lev 22:15)  ‘And let the priests not profane the set-apart offerings of the children of Yisra’ĕl, which they lift up to יהוה, (Lev 22:16) or allow them to bear the crookedness of trespass when they eat their set-apart offerings.  I am יהוה, who sets them apart.’ ” (Lev 22:17)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 22:18)  “Speak to Aharon and his sons, and to all the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘Any man of the house of Yisra’ĕl, or of the strangers in Yisra’ĕl, who brings his offering for any of his vows or for any of his voluntary offerings, which they bring to יהוה as a burnt offering, (Lev 22:19)  for your acceptance, is a male, a perfect one from the cattle, from the sheep, or from the goats. (Lev 22:20)  ‘Whatever has a defect, you do not bring, for it is not acceptable for you. (Lev 22:21)  ‘And when a man brings a peace offering to יהוה, to complete a vow, or a voluntary offering from the cattle or the sheep, it is to be perfect to be accepted, let there be no defect in it. (Lev 22:22)  ‘Those blind or broken or having a cut, or have an ulcer or eczema or scabs, you do not bring to יהוה, nor make an offering by fire of them on the altar to יהוה. (Lev 22:23)  ‘As for a bull or a lamb that has any limb deformed or dwarfed you do prepare as a voluntary offering, but for a vow it is not accepted. (Lev 22:24)  ‘Do not bring to יהוה what is bruised or crushed, or torn or cut, nor do it in your land. (Lev 22:25)  ‘And from a son of a stranger’s hand you do not bring any of these as the bread of your Elohim, for their corruption is in them, and defects are in them, they are not acceptable for you.’ ” (Lev 22:26) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 22:27) “When a bull or a sheep or a goat is born, it shall be seven days with its mother. And from the eighth day and thereafter it is acceptable as an offering made by fire to יהוה. (Lev 22:28)  “But do not slaughter a cow or a sheep and its young on the same day. (Lev 22:29)  “And when you bring a slaughtering of thanksgiving to יהוה, bring it for your acceptance. (Lev 22:30)  “It is eaten that same day; leave none of it till morning. I am יהוה. (Lev 22:31)  “And you shall guard my commands and do them. I am יהוה. (Lev 22:32)  “And do not profane my set-apart Name, and I shall be set-apart among the children of Yisra’ĕl. I am יהוה, who sets you apart, (Lev 22:33) who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Elohim. I am יהוה.”

FEASTS- MOEDIM- Appointments- rehearsals- shadows of good things to come!

(Lev 23:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 23:2) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘the appointed times of יהוה, which you are to proclaim as set-apart gatherings, my appointed times, are these: (Lev 23:3) ‘Six days work is done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, a set-apart gathering. You do no work; it is a Sabbath to יהוה in all your dwellings. (Lev 23:4)  ‘These are the appointed times of יהוה, set-apart gatherings which you are to proclaim at their appointed times. (Lev 23:5)  ‘In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, between the evenings, is the Passover to יהוה. (Lev 23:6)  ‘And on the fifteenth day of this month is the Festival of Unleavened Bread to יהוה – seven days you eat unleavened bread. (Lev 23:7)  ‘On the first day you have a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. (Lev 23:8)  ‘And you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה for seven days. On the seventh day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work.’ ” (Lev 23:9) and יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 23:10) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and you shall say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest. (Lev 23:11)  ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before יהוה, for your acceptance. On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it. (Lev 23:12)  ‘And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to יהוה, (Lev 23:13) and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to יהוה, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering: one-fourth of a hin of wine. (Lev 23:14)  ‘And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. (Lev 23:15)  ‘And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. (Lev 23:16)  ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to יהוה. (Lev 23:17)  ‘Bring from your dwellings for a wave offering two loaves of bread, of two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour they are, baked with leaven, first-fruits to יהוה. (Lev 23:18)  ‘And besides the bread, you shall bring seven lambs a year old, perfect ones, and one young bull and two rams. They are a burnt offering to יהוה, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire for a sweet fragrance to יהוה. (Lev 23:19)  ‘And you shall offer one male goat as a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old, as a peace offering. (Lev 23:20)  ‘And the priest shall wave them, besides the bread of the first-fruits, as a wave offering before יהוה, besides the two lambs. They are set-apart to יהוה for the priest. (Lev 23:21)  ‘And on this same day you shall proclaim a set-apart gathering for yourselves, you do no servile work on it – a law forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. (Lev 23:22)  ‘And when you reap the harvest of your land do not completely reap the corners of your field when you reap, and do not gather any gleaning from your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the stranger. I am יהוה your Elohim.’ ” (Lev 23:23) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 23:24) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, a remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a set-apart gathering. (Lev 23:25)  ‘You do no servile work, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה.’ ” (Lev 23:26) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 23:27)  “On the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a set-apart gathering for you. And you shall afflict your beings, and shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה. (Lev 23:28)  “And you do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before יהוה your Elohim. (Lev 23:29)  “For any being who is not afflicted on that same day, he shall be cut off from his people. (Lev 23:30)  “And any being who does any work on that same day, that being I shall destroy from the midst of his people. (Lev 23:31)  “You do no work – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. (Lev 23:32)  ‘It is a Sabbath of rest to you, and you shall afflict your beings. On the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you observe your Sabbath.”

Sukkot- Tabernacles- Moedim (Appointments)

(Lev 23:33)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 23:34) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Booths for seven days to יהוה. (Lev 23:35)  ‘On the first day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. (Lev 23:36)  ‘For seven days you bring an offering made by fire to יהוה. On the eighth day there shall be a set-apart gathering for you, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה. It is a closing festival, you do no servile work. (Lev 23:37)  ‘These are the appointed times of יהוה which you proclaim as set-apart gatherings, to bring an offering made by fire to יהוה, a burnt offering and a grain offering, a slaughtering and drink offerings, as commanded for every day – (Lev 23:38) besides the Sabbaths of יהוה, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides all your voluntary offerings which you give to יהוה. (Lev 23:39)  On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the fruit of the land, observe the festival of יהוה for seven days. On the first day is a rest, and on the eighth day a rest. (Lev 23:40)  ‘And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of good trees, branches of palm trees, twigs of leafy trees, and willows of the stream, and shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim for seven days. (Lev 23:41)  ‘And you shall observe it as a festival to יהוה for seven days in the year – a law forever in your generations. Observe it in the seventh month. (Lev 23:42)  Dwell in booths for seven days; all who are native Yisra’ĕlites dwell in booths, (Lev 23:43) so that your generations know that I made the children of Yisra’ĕl dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Mitsrayim. I am יהוה your Elohim.’ ” (Lev 23:44) Thus did Mosheh speak of the appointed times of יהוה to the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Numbers 29:12)  ‘And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month you have a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. And you shall observe a festival to יהוה seven days, (Numbers 29:13)  and you shall bring near a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה: thirteen young bulls, two rams, fourteen lambs a year old, perfect ones they are, (Numbers 29:14)  and their grain offering: fine flour mixed with oil, three-tenths of an ĕphah for each of the thirteen bulls, two-tenths for each of the two rams, (Numbers 29:15)  and one-tenth for each of the fourteen lambs, (Numbers 29:16)  and one male goat as a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its grain offering, and its drink offering.

Yikes! 2/3 are cut off in the land of Israel and 1/3 will be brought through the fire as we too are refined in fire Loved One! These are the similar numbers of the Great Tribulation in the last 42 months called Jacob’s Trouble- (Not the Jews only Trouble- all of the Commonwealth of Israel who are grafted in by believing on Yahshua and heirs according to the promise of Abraham!)

(Zechariah 14:1)  See, a day shall come for יהוה, and your spoil shall be divided in your midst. (Zechariah 14:2)  And I shall gather all the gentiles to battle against Yerushalayim1. And the city shall be taken, the houses plundered, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into exile, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Footnote: 1Joel 3:2, Zeph. 3:8, Rev. 16:14. (Zechariah 14:3)  And יהוה shall go forth, and He shall fight against those gentiles, as He fights in the day of battle. (Zechariah 14:4)  And in that day His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives, which faces Yerushalayim on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, a very great valley, and half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. (Zechariah 14:5)  And you shall flee to the valley of My Mountain – for the valley of the mountains reaches to Atsal. And you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziyah sovereign of Yehuḏah.  יהוה my Elohim shall come – all the set-apart ones with you. (Zechariah 14:6)  And in that day it shall be: there is no light, it is dark. (Zechariah 14:7)  And it shall be one day which is known to יהוה, neither day nor night, but at evening time there shall be light. (Zechariah 14:8)  And in that day it shall be that living waters flow from Yerushalayim1, half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea, in summer as well as in winter. Footnote: 1Rev. 22:1-2. (Zechariah 14:9)  And יהוה shall be Sovereign over all the earth1. In that day there shall be one יהוה, and His Name one. Footnote: 1Isa. 24:23, Dan. 2:44, Rev. 11:15. (Zechariah 14:10)  All the land shall be changed into a desert plain from Geḇa to Rimmon south of Yerushalayim, and she shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Binyamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Ḥanan’ĕl to the winepresses of the sovereign. (Zechariah 14:11)  And they shall dwell in her, and there shall be no more utter destruction1, but Yerushalayim shall be safely inhabited. Footnote: 1Mal. 4:6. (Zechariah 14:12)  And this is the plague with which יהוה plagues all the people who fought against Yerushalayim: their flesh shall decay while they stand on their feet, and their eyes decay in their sockets, and their tongues decay in their mouths. (Zechariah 14:13)  And it shall be in that day that a great confusion from יהוה is among them, and every one of them shall seize the hand of his neighbor, and his hand rise up against his neighbor’s hand. (Zechariah 14:14)  And Yehuḏah shall fight at Yerushalayim as well. And the wealth of all the gentiles round about shall be gathered together: gold, and silver, and garments in great quantities. (Zechariah 14:15)  So also is the plague on the horse and the mule, on the camel and the donkey, and on all the cattle that are in those camps – as this plague. (Zechariah 14:16)  And it shall be that all who are left from all the gentiles which came up against Yerushalayim, shall go up from year to year to bow themselves to the Sovereign, יהוה of hosts, and to observe the Festival of Booths. (Zechariah 14:17)  And it shall be that if anyone of the clans of the earth does not come up to Yerushalayim to bow himself to the Sovereign, יהוה of hosts, on them there is to be no rain. (Zechariah 14:18)  And if the clan of Mitsrayim does not come up and enter in, then there is no rain. On them is the plague with which יהוה plagues the gentiles who do not come up to observe the Festival of Booths. (Zechariah 14:19)  This is the punishment of Mitsrayim and the punishment of all the gentiles that do not come up to observe the Festival of Booths. (Zechariah 14:20)  In that day “SET-APART TO יהוה” shall be engraved on the bells of the horses. And the pots in the House of יהוה shall be like the bowls before the altar. (Zechariah 14:21)  And every pot in Yerushalayim and Yehuḏah shall be set-apart to יהוה of hosts. And all those who slaughter shall come and take them and cook in them. And there shall no longer be a merchant in the House of יהוה of hosts, in that day.

If there were only 6 billion- (More likely now over 7 billion) CONSIDER- ¼ cut off first- that is minus 1.5 billion, that leaves 4.5 billion, then 1/3 are cut off – that is another minus of 1.5 billion- that leaves 3 billion of us; YIKES that is at least ½ the population being cut off!

Shouldn’t we use this time Loved One to draw near to YHWH? We fear NOT! Hallelu-Yah!

Let’s look- we start with the fourth seal for ¼: (Rev 6:7) and when He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” (Rev 6:8)  And I looked and saw a pale horse. And he who sat on it had the name Death, and the grave followed with him. And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and by the beasts of the earth. Here’s the next 1/3: (Rev 9:14) saying to the sixth messenger who had the trumpet, “Release the four messengers, those having been bound at the great river Euphrates.” (Rev 9:15)  And the four messengers, those having been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.

After the 1000 year Millennium (The Sabbath Day Rest) Where Yahshua “Tabernacles” with us- then we get a New Heaven and a New Earth! Hallelu-Yah!

(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.

I do hope you are participating with Loved Ones- loved one; in keeping the Feast of Tabernacles- wherever you are- thank you for your prayers for us- you KNOW you are much loved! Hallelu-Yah! May YHWH bless you, provide for you, shield and protect you- in the Season of Our Rejoicing! You are really much loved. Remember 400 times in the KJV the word “fear” is used. 331 of those are FEAR NOT! That leaves 69 “fears” left- and most of those pertain to FEAR YHWH! (Who alone can cast you into hell’s flames for eternity) So FEAR NOT!

Shalom to your home- uhhh- Sukkah/Tent- Loved One!


Continued explanation of 2012-13 Torah Cycle restart at beginning of monthsIt is about YHWH restoring all things which sometimes means we are walking alone. I start over annually when YHWH’s year starts over; this is not to say that I am correct and others are wrong, I just happen to believe we will never challenge our older brother Judah by following his traditions. I expect Judah will be moved by our obedience to His Torah (Words of Scripture) and seeing YHWH’s signs and wonders following our obedience- Does the statement above mean we are not to grab the tzitzit of Yehuda and take hold and learn from them? Of course not, we absolutely should learn of them and from them- just not ingest and keep that which is traditions that go against His words! Especially since we are the ten (Ten scattered northern tribes scattered for Easter and sun god day worship which parallels closely as a pig slop eating prodigal brother)

Let’s look; (Zechariah 8:22) ‘And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek יהוה of hosts in Yerushalayim, and to pray before יהוה.’ (Zechariah 8:23)  “Thus said יהוה of hosts, ‘In those days (Now? YES and in the future also!) Ten men (10 scattered northern tribes called Ephraim and Israel) from all languages of the nations take hold, yea, they shall take hold of the edge of the garment of a man, a Yehuḏite1, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” ’ ” Footnote: 1John 4:22.
