TABERNACLES – THE FEAST OF INGATHERING

Harvest Bride

The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) marks the final ingathering of all produce for the year before winter sets in. That’s why Sukkot can also be called Hag HaAsif – The Feast of Ingathering. “And the Festival of Harvest of the first fruits of your labor that you sow in the field; and the Festival of the Ingathering at the close of the year, when you gather in your work from the field” (Exodus 23:16 TJB, English Tanach).


It’s tremendously significant that the Feast of Ingathering is the final harvest of a year (i.e., an extended period of time). The final harvest is intimately connected to the Feast of Tabernacles also being known as the Season of Rejoicing. We are literally in that season right now: “When Hashem (God) will return the captivity of Zion, as we will be like dreamers. Then our mouth will be filled with laughter and our tongue with glad song. Then they will declare among the nations, ‘Hashem had done greatly with these.’ Hashem has done greatly with us, we are gladdened. O Hashem, return our captivity like springs in the desert. Those who sow will reap in glad song. He who bears the measure of seeds walks along weeping, but will return in exultation, a bearer of His sheaves” (Psalms 126:1-6 TJB).

Not only is it time for the greatest harvest ever seen by mankind, but it’s time for the manifestation or harvest of His sweetest fruit of all — the Bride of Christ. “And HE said, ‘The Kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come” (Mark 4:26-29 NKJV).

Behold, the season of the harvest of the One New Man in Christ (its fullness – Metatron) and the Bride of Christ. Come forth laborers in His fields! His fields – the nations – are white and ripe! The Spirit and the Bride say: “Come!”

TABERNACLES – HIS DWELLING PLACE

Wind Bride 2

The temporary dwelling places (sukkot) built during the Feast of Tabernacles remind God’s people of the clouds of glory that surrounded Is-real during their wanderings through the desert on their way to the Promised Land: “And the Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night” (Exodus 13:21 NAS). 

It was a miraculous life. As His people journeyed through the wilderness, their clothes never ever wore out. Image that for a moment. Forty years of walking in a hot and dry land, and your shoes look and feel perfect. It sounds like a heavenly foreshadow of “who is this that comes up from the wilderness, leaning on her Beloved?” (SS 8:5).

Everyone who desires to be part of His Pure and Spotless Bride has wilderness experiences. Everyone. Notice how there is a fairly quick transition from the High Holy Days – Days of Awe – with their somber mood of repentance and judgment to one of rejoicing and celebration. Tabernacles with its command to build a sukkah (plural sukkot) and make it their home is not called “The Season of Our Joy” for nothing. Rejoicing and joy is intimately connected to the Bride of Christ: “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels” (Isaiah 61:10 NKJV).

It is not a coincidence that the period between the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) is the same period that marks the beginning of the construction of God’s Tabernacle – the Mishkan – sanctuary in the desert (Exodus 25:8-9). According to Hebraic Tradition, Moses ascended Mount Sinai the second time for 40 days and nights to receive the second set of tablets. He carried them down the mountain as a sign of God’s forgiveness for the sin of the Golden Calf on Yom Kippur. These Ten Commandments were in actuality a marriage contract with Is-real. The following day Moses told the people about God’s instructions for building a Dwelling Place (Exodus 35-36:1-7).

Therefore, the various iterations of God’s Dwelling Place are connected to His marriage contract. What was promised at Sinai is being realized in our day. In this Kingdom Day, we as His Living Stones, are being built into the greatest Dwelling Place of all – the New Jerusalem where: “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be their God… Come here, I will show you the Bride, the Lamb’s wife” (Revelation 21:3,9b).

BACK TO THE FUTURE BASICS – YESHUA’S BIBLICAL FEASTS

Yeshua Menorah

Just as Yeshua (Jesus) remained silent when He walked among His disciples on earth about the Gentiles joining the people of God in much greater numbers after His final ascension, so is the celebration of Biblical Feasts in this Kingdom Day.

Ironically, the clearest case in the New Testament for celebrating the Lord’s Feasts is presented in the chapter that many Christians have used as their excuse that they can celebrate anything they want, any way they want:

“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” (Colossians 2:16-17 KJV). 

Christians have long used Colossians 2:16-17 to rationalize why we should no longer celebrate the Lord’s Feast, but in fact this passage actually proves the opposite. The NASB version tells us: “Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard … to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day — things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.”

The very first point I’d like to emphasize is that YESHUA IS THE SUBSTANCE BEHIND ALL OF THE BIBLICAL FEASTS. His Spring Feasts (articulated in Leviticus 23) speak of His First Coming. His Fall Feasts speak of His Second Coming. The two winter feasts mentioned in God’s Word – Hanukkah and Purim – portray God’s people journey to becoming His Bride. Please see https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/03/09/feast-of-esther-is-a-bridal-feast/ about how God is changing history through a shaking and a rumbling via the full council of the Word of God, and somehow the seven Feasts of the Lord are becoming nine Bridal Feasts in this Kingdom Day.

When we argue that we can celebrate a holiday (holy day or feast) any way we want, we have tapped into a portion of the truth. The next significant point is: WE ARE NOT TO JUDGE OTHERS ON HOW THEY CELEBRATE A BIBLICAL FESTIVAL, new moon or Sabbath day. Did you catch that? Paul is assuming that God’s people are celebrating all three of these things that mark God’s peoples weeks, months and years according to His Word. BTW – That word “judge” means we are not to criticize, censure, condemn, or punish people on how they celebrate a Biblical festival. (Note: I am leaving out new moons and Sabbaths out for simplicity’s sake).

There are many people currently returning to these Age-Old Foundations, and there is so much hullaballoo about what is the right way to do this and that. Let’s be perfectly clear. IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW YOU CELEBRATE A BIBLICAL FESTIVAL, AS LONG AS YOU ARE ENDEAVORING TO FOLLOW HIS WORD BY HIS SPIRIT, because celebrations are all about worship. “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers” (John 4:23 NASB).

For example: Some people celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread by physically searching every nook and cranny of their house for yeast and throwing it all out. Others take this to mean that the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a time that Yah’s Family searches every nook and cranny of their heart to get rid of all sin. I fall in the later category, but I do not judge those who feel led to do otherwise. In fact, I even believe that each culture can, and will, bring their beautiful unique touches to each Biblical Feast. I have seen a tremendous amount of freedom within the worshipping the Father in spirit and truth context.

Know that there are only three Biblical Feasts that are called feasts forever: Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. Zechariah 14:16-17 tells us that in the Millennial Kingdom nations will not receive rain if they don’t come up to Jerusalem to worship the King from year to year, and specifically keep the Feast of Tabernacles. BTW – We have now entered that time frame here on earth.

If we want to walk in the same manner as Yeshua did and resonate at the same frequency as the Word of God Himself, we need to consider if the fullness of the measure of the stature of the Messiah includes celebrating all the feasts that He did (1 John 2:6; Ephesians 4:13). If not one jot or tittle will pass away, we need to consider why these other feasts are in His Word and whether they are significant to Him. I feel a resounding “Yes!” in my heart, because I want to walk like Yeshua, talk like Yeshua, and be exactly like Yeshua… But I also don’t want to be caught up in an old form or legalism. IN THIS KINGDOM DAY, WE ARE NOT NECESSARILY RETURNING TO THE FORMS OF WORSHIP BUT THE SUBSTANCE.

Recall that Yeshua is the substance of all the Biblical Feasts. Consider this in regard to both His Head and His Body. God’s people will literally embody the marks of time that the Lord Himself has put in place to set His people’s years, months and weeks. We are told that these are “shadows of things to come.” When God created man in His own image, the Hebrew word tzelem is used and is derived from tzel, which means “shadow.” Therefore, one of the interpretations of a “shadow of things to come” is the manifestation of Christ’s Body coming into its fullness as a perfect One New Man in Christ (Ephesians 2:15; Ephesians 4:13). This is the Metatron form of the Messiah with the fully mature Head of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) connected to the fully mature members of His Body.

“Let NO MAN therefore judge you … in respect of a holy day… which are a shadow of things to come; but the BODY IS OF CHRIST” (Colossians 2:16-17 KJV). In NO MAN’S Land, Crucified Ones will rightly judge – open the Door of Life – to His Biblical Feasts, so Christ’s Body can connect to the mature Head who is casting the shadow. We must comprehend that a shadow always resembles its substance. When the Bible says it’s a “shadow of things to come,” it additionally means that we will be answering to the Creator, who is casting the shadow.

So no one is to act as your judge in regard to a festival, what matters is that we celebrate Him with a sincere heart. In the Kingdom of God, we all must respect the right of each individual to be “led by the Spirit.” However, the Lord says, “We have been called unto liberty, only use not this liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” That brings us to our next significant point: THERE IS NO MIXTURE IN GOD’S APPOINTED TIMES AND FEASTS CELEBRATED IN HIS KINGDOM. The Lord will have us redeem things that have a righteous real to them. For instance, things that He has created like light, sound, colors, etc. But know this: The Lord does not redeem things that are demonic in origin and pagan at their roots. He judges them.

The passage directly after Colossians 2:16-17 speaks to our current situation in the Christian Church in regard to the holidays that we have assimilated which have mixture in them, like Christmas and Easter: “Let NO MAN beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the Body… knit together, increases with the increases of God. Wherefore if you be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are you subject to ordinances… which all are to perish with the using… after the commandments and doctrines of men? Which things have indeed a show of wisdom in will-worship [my note – We choose by our will to worship after the traditions of men] and humility, and neglecting of the Body [my note – not holding fast to the Head and not being knit and joined together in love according to His Word] not in any honor to the satisfying of the flesh.” (Colossians 2:18-23).

Celebrating Biblical Feasts is all about rewards and qualifying to be part of His Pure and Spotless Bride. It is not about salvation, which is solely through faith by grace. In NO MAN’S LAND, Crucified Ones will not allow themselves to be diverted, deceived, or beguiled from receiving their eternal rewards to the satisfaction of the flesh.

I can go line-upon-line speaking for days to show you how Colossians 2:18-23 speaks about the mixture involved in the big yearly worship celebrations of the Christian Church – Christmas and Easter – but I don’t have the time or space here. BTW – I wrote about all this in extreme detail in my book. The link is below. Frankly, all you need to do is lay down Easter and Christmas on His Altar, and simply ask Him: “Can I receive my eternal reward of being part of Your Pure and Spotless Bride, if I celebrate Christmas and Easter?” Then be quiet and listen; and make sure that you are truly hearing Him, not the idols of your heart.

I will end with this… The last PRACTICAL KEYS TO UNLOCKING MELCHIZEDEK article, which I posted was about the look and sound of PERFECT of the Order of Melchizedek (https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/06/23/practical-keys-to-unlocking-melchizedek-part-8-lifes-pure-perfection/). The root Greek word for “perfect” is the same root word for “commandment” in John 14:30-31: “Hereafter I will not talk much for the prince of the world comes and has NOTHING in Me. But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave Me COMMANDMENT, even so I do.” KNOW THAT HIS ROYAL PRIESTS OF HIS HOLY NATION WILL RESTORE ALL THINGS, INCLUDING TIME AND CELEBRATING HIM HIS WAYS.

WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY OPENS FOR THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES

Dining Outdoors Candles

Did you know that there is a divine right alignment when we give according to our Heavenly Father’s heart during the three major Biblical Feasts: Pesach (Passover), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles)?

According to some Hebrew sources, on Sukkot if you give a freewill offering according to the leading of the Lord, it is counted for one year and a reflection of what our Father pours on you based on this offering. Think of it like a window opens over your life from Heaven.

Personally, it causes me to reflect about what truly counts in life.

With each Biblical Feast, a new portal (or heavenly window) opens that enables a greater ease than “normal” to enter and inherit His Kingdom in a greater measure here on earth, as in heaven. These are special grace(s) related to the themes/ principles of each feast.

Yeshua (i.e. Jesus) has not done away with Biblical Feasts, He fulfilled them (and is still fulfilling them through His Body until His second coming and beyond) – See Matthew 5:17. Any feast that is articulated in Scripture is a Biblical Feast. The Feasts of the Lord are the seven listed in Leviticus 23. Our Beloved told me last year: “Just as the Spirit of the Living God has seven flows that manifests in nine fruits and gifts, so do the Feasts of the Lord.” (Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/03/09/feast-of-esther-is-a-bridal-feast/) I could speak about this subject forever, and I’ve written about it extensively after studying it full-time for over 15-20 years. Here’s a short post that explains more: https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/10/04/back-to-the-future-basics-yeshuas-biblical-feasts/

Probably most significance to this particular post is:

[1] The Feast of Tabernacles (i.e., Sukkot) is a Feast Forever. God’s people will celebrate this one and at least two others eternally (See Leviticus 23:41).

[2] The primitive root for His Feasts in 2 Chronicles 8:13 is the Hebrew word ya-ad. Significantly, this is the term used for Adam knowing Eve intimately. Ya-ad has a most profound message in regard to the Lord’s Biblical Feasts. It implies that yood-hey-shin-vav-hey is summoning His people to meet Him at His stated time, so He can direct us into a certain position to engage us for marriage (i.e., to be betrothed). HIS FEASTS ARE ALL ABOUT US BEING/BECOMING HIS PURE AND SPOTLESS BRIDE.

[3] In regard to a freewill offering to honor Him during one of His Feasts. Deuteronomy 6:5 tells us: “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” Series of three in Scripture show people how to mature into the image of Christ (I like to say “move unto perfection”). They are listed from easiest to hardest. The hardest way to love Y-H-Shin-V-H is with all your strength. It’s the Bridal form of loving God. If you break “strength” down, it basically means loving God with all your resources. Here’s an article about it => http://wp.me/p158HG-sS.

Biblical Feasts are something that the enemy has stolen from most Christians, and we must seize the day and take it back for Bridal hearts everywhere!

THE SONG THAT ALL OTHER SONGS SING

music by Delores DeVelde

“Who is this that comes up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved? I awakened you under the apple tree; there your mother brought you forth; there she that bore you was in travail. Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death’ desire as cruel as Shoel; its flashes are flashes of fire and flame” (Song of Songs 8:5-6 Aramaic).

The Hebrew Sages say that the Song of Songs is the song that all other songs sing. Or in other words, it is the underlying song to all rejoicing, high praise and worship. Song of Songs 8:5 is significant during this Kingdom day and hour.

It speaks of a soul that cleaves to its Beloved. This bridal lover of God has been through the trials and tribulations that the wilderness brings and is coming up out of it with a deep knowledge that she only stands by leaning on her Beloved.

The Hebrew Sages report that the apple tree is synonymous with the duality of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. It is here where we are trying to discern both good and evil that our Beloved awakens us to the realities of the higher order of the Tree of Life.

Now is the time to be awaken or aroused spiritually in order to be inspired from the oneness above. It’s going to be a fruitful year, for this is the year of redemption. It’s the fullness of time when the Jewish people will be redeemed:

• “And if their rejection has resulted in reconciliation of the world, how much more will their restoration be? Indeed it will be life from the dead” (Romans 11:15 Aramaic).

• “For this corruption must put on incorruption and this moral must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:53 Aramaic).

• “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever” (Revelation 11:15b Aramaic).

YOM TERUAH OR ROSH HA SHANA? BIBLE OR BABYLON?

Trumpet Glory

The trumps are blowing and the KING of Kings is crowned even more so in our lives. One day – perhaps today – the Messiah will return at the Last Trump! Let’s ride on the wind of the sound of His voice!

Did you know that Yom Teruah – the Feast of Trumpets – is in Scripture (Leviticus 23:23-35; Numbers 29: 4-13), but the Jewish New Years – Rosh Ha Shanah – celebrated in the seventh month is not? There is only one mention of Rosh Ha Shanah in Scripture. It is found in Ezekiel 40:1 when Ezekiel honored and spoke of God’S New Year… the first of Aviv. Please allow me to emphasize that last point: Scripture’s only mention of Rosh Ha Shanah corresponds to the only New Year that God set up in Scripture, the first of Aviv in March/April.

Not until 200 AD (170 years after our Messiah rose) did Rosh Ha Shanah come about to replace Yom Teruah in the Mishnah, which later got incorporated into the Talmud… and believe you me, you don’t want any part of the Talmud! There are some disgusting things in the Talmud, for instance it exonerates pedophilia against little girls over 3-yrs-old.

Having a New Year celebrated in the seventh month of the year comes from Babylon. Say what?! Aren’t you amazed to find out that celebrating a New Year for Years in the seventh month is a BABYLONIAN tradition?

The Babylonians used to have a lunar-solar calendar very similar to the Biblical calendar. The result was that Yom Teruah often fell out on the same day as the Babylonian New Years festival known as Akitu. Akitu fell out on the 1st day of Tishri, as well as six months later on the first of Nisan. That’s right! To make matters more confusing the Babylonians celebrated Akitu – New Years – twice a year. Talk about confusing! I see some Tower of Babel fingerprints here.

The 1st of Tishri coincided with Yom Teruah on the 1st day of the Seventh Month. The fact that the Jews had started calling the Seventh Month by the Babylonian name Tishri paved the way for turning Yom Teruah into a Jewish Akitu. At the same time the Rabbis did not want to adopt Akitu outright, so they Judaized it by changing the name of Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting or Day of Trumpets) to Rosh Hashanah (New Years).

WHAT REMAINS?

So what remains if one desires to return to the solid age-old foundations of the Word of God?

Both Rabbinical Judaism and Constantine Christianity have traditions of man that are keeping us from fulfilling the Word of God. We need to determine His righteous measuring line in all things, in this case — celebrating His Feasts — the Feasts of the Lord. Not legalistically, but in a life-giving sense. Just know that any canonized form of the Bible has its limitations and its personal agendas.

That’s why we need to stick with the first five books of the Bible for the foundations of our faith, i.e. believing Moses. Yeshua actually tells His people this very thing: “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” (John 5:46-47 NKJV).

OFFERING BY FIRE

Let all Bridal Lovers of God try to lay down our agendas and traditions on God’s Altar, so we can each make that “offering by fire to the LORD” that Leviticus 23:25 prescribes. Let the All-Consuming Fire’s measuring line of His Word burn up all traditions of men that keep us in Babylon and from keeping the commandments of God that those who love Him will fulfill (Mark 7:7-9,13; John 14:15; 15:10; 1 John 5:2; 2 John 1:6; Revelation 14:12; 18:4).

RETURN OF OUR MESSIAH

What remains in the celebration of Yom Teruah is that what is Scriptural. Yom Teruah — the sounding of the shofar and lifting up of voices to God as ONE — celebrates the day of the return of our Messiah.

The friend who pointed out to me that Rosh Ha Shana was not Scriptural put it this way: “Imagine the ‘sky rolling up like a scroll’ and our Messiah coming for His Bride. Are you ready?”

There are several mentions of the “Last Trump” or “Great Trump” in Scripture, and it’s very prophetic! Matthew 24:30-31, 1 Cor 15:16-17; 1 Thess 4:16-17: Etc.

CORONATION DAY

What Scripturally remains is that the first day of the seventh month is the coronation day of the kings.

Psalm 47 is a coronation psalm. Check it out!

[1] Psalm 47:5 is the shout and trumpet of Yom Teruah that declares that  God has set His King upon His holy hill of Zion, and a royal rod of authority is placed in the King’s hands to rule righteously in all matters (Psalms 2:6-7; Genesis 49:10; Psalms 45:6; Isaiah 11:1,4; Zechariah 9:9; John 1:47-49; Revelation 2:27).

[2] Psalm 47:6 is the shouting of praise of the king. During the acclamation, all the people shout, “Long live the king!” (1 Kings 1:28-31).

[3] Psalm 47:8 is the ceremony of the throne where the king sits on the throne and is anointed as such (2 Samuel 5:3-4; 1 Kings 1:39-40; 2 Kings 9:1-6).

[4] Psalm 47:9 shows the believers in the Messiah gathering in His presence. Each of the King’s subjects come to visit the king after He has taken the throne. By doing this, they acknowledge their allegiance to Him and receive a commissioning from Him for their job in His Kingdom (Isaiah 66:22-23; Zechariah 14:16-17; Matthew 2:2).

SHIFT

So what caused this shift from Rosh Hashana to Yom Teruah last year for me?

It began with the following post from Rebekkah Avraham when I put out a call for people to seek the Lord for a word for the Biblical Year 5774 to share with others: “The Scriptural New Year starts on the 1st of Abib… in March/April. There is but one New Year in the Torah of the Most High. There are four in Jewish Tradition. The traditions of men that make the word of God of none effect. God bless you all. Shalom Aleichem.”

Turns out that she is right.

Rosh Ha Shanah is said to celebrate the beginning of the Civil New Year by its proponents — a New Year for Years. Heck, I’ve even touted that, because I thought it was something Biblical; but in reality, God calls the first day of the seventh month the Day of Blasts/Sounding, which corresponds to Yom Teruah. It is Rabbinic Judaism that calls it Rosh Ha Shanah (Head of the Year).

TO MARRY THE KING OF KINGS

Why this is important is that one of the foundational concepts about celebrating Biblical Feasts is that at His Feasts God is calling His people together at a particular time at a particular place to become betrothed (i.e., married to the King of Kings). No wonder there is so much confusion over feasts. It’s literally a battle over and for His Bride. Won’t you celebrate Him His way and join Him in holy matrimony?
