RESONATING AT THE FREQUENCY OF JOY

scroll joy

Woo Hoo!!! The after affects of the Festival of Joy (Feast of Tabernacles) keeps on coming! The day after the eighth day opportunity to corporately linger longer in a time beyond time remaining in God’s Presence seems to be one of the most joyous days of all – Simchat Torah – Rejoicing in God’s Word.

The Torah is the first five book of the Bible. These are the books that Yeshua (Jesus) told us that if we would believe what Moses wrote, we would believe Him: “For had you believed Moses, you would have believed Me; for he wrote of Me. But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe My words?” (John 5:46-47).

Each week Bible-believing Jews throughout the world chant a portion of the Torah called the parashat. Through the ages, they have divided up the first five books of the Bible into 54 weekly portions, so that within the course of a year the entire Torah has been recited and sung during corporate worship services.

Since the Middle Ages, the annual reading cycle of God’s Word has been predominant. Not only is Simchat Torah the end of the reading/meditation cycle with its own festival day, but it’s also the beginning. God’s people start again immediately from the beginning. It’s very significant that God’s nation Is-real study the same passage of God’s Word simultaneously. I’m challenging myself and others grafted into the commonwealth of Israel to do the same. Can you image the power of one in doing this? Can you image the joy of our Heavenly Father’s Heart when all His people get on the same page – Messiah Yeshua?

Like God Himself, His Word stands forever. “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, on jot or one tittle shall no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:17-18 KJV). 

“But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for JOY, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be JOYFUL in You” (Psalm 5:11 NKJV).

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 Corinthians 15:16-17; 1 Thessalonians 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 (i.e., September 16, 2012) 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?

HOLY PRIESTHOOD OFFERING SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES

Worship Man

For such a time as this, the Master of the Wedding Banquet is revealing what the Bride of the Messiah (Christ) needs to do in order to be ready. Hidden within the bowels of Scripture are the instructions for God’s Holy Priesthood on how to make spiritual sacrifices, which will culminate in them becoming a glorious part of His Pure & Spotless Bride.

“Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stone, are being built up a spiritual house, A HOLY PRIESTHOOD, TO OFFER UP SPIRITUAL SACRIFICES ACCEPTABLE TO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST” (1 Peter 2:4-5 NKJV).

Before we go into the three progressive crucifixion steps for the Bride’s Baptism of Fire, we need to understand the concept of “spiritual sacrifices” according to the Messiah’s instruction. Please be patient as we lay some foundations, so His Crucified Ones can literally see how to hit the Father’s bull’s eye of righteousness.

Some Christians believe that the instructions of Moses on the priests, the altar, and the sacrificial system are not true for us today. That’s not what Yeshua (Jesus) said: “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). Yeshua has also told us that: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17 NKJV). That word “fulfill” means to fill it full of meaning. Will we do things exactly as the Levitical priests did in their day? No, but God’s Holy Priesthood will apply those Biblical principles and ask the Spirit of the Living God how we can fill them full of meaning in our day. BTW – We will not be going into what Judaism or Christianity has taught. We will only stick to the things that Yeshua tells us if you believe these things, then you will believe Me.

The Levitical Sacrificial Service were actually audio-visual aids to explain certain profound, basic principles on how we relate to God, how we are to live with one another, and how to be reconciled with one another. Within the instructions of the priests, the altar, and the sacrificial system are the basic of our faith. Without these ancient foundations, the cross of Christ means nothing.

The very beginning of the Levitical Sacrificial System starts with the first word in the Book of Leviticus – “vyihkra.” The Hebrew letter “alef” in this word is made small, and if one dissects this word Hebraically, a person understands: If you are going to be called of the Lord, your strength must be made small, so His strength may be made large in your life. Any person called of the Lord will share this testimony. Recall that John the Baptist (who was a Levite) gave this exact testimony in being a forerunner of the Messiah: “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30 NKJV). In a sense, John the Baptist was saying I must go away (disappear), so He can come forward (appear).

The following are five reasons Yeshua of Nazareth gives on why we need to have sacrifices, and why we still have a priestly sacrificial system:

[1] TABLE FELLOWSHIP – God’s Altar was the place where sacrifices were burnt in His Temple. It was considered to be the Lord’s Table. The hospitality of the Lord is basically the hospitality of your homes. When someone is coming over, they ask their host: “What can I bring to join you at your table?” Then the host will specify what’s appropriate to bring. The Altar is the place where God said, I will meet with a man and we will do business together. Even the business world makes agreements over a good meal. God has set standards, protocols, and manners that will be done at His Table. It’s that simple. If you want to come near to God and approach His Table, simply ask because it’s open to whomsoever will. LOVE will whole-heartedly welcome you, and He will specify something you can bring to the table to join Him (Luke 22:29-30; 24:30; 1 Cor. 10:21).

[2] RESTORATION OF FELLOWSHIP – God’s Altar is for the restoration of fellowship, because sin separates us from God. These are instructions on how to turn your direction in order to come more near to the Lord. It is here that the Messiah instructs us: “If you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift” (Matt. 5:23-24 NKJV).

[3] WORSHIP OF GOD – The adoration of God Almighty is illustrated by every sacrifice, which had to be lifted up so they could be elevated unto the Altar. When we come to the Lord, we lift up our hands when we bring any gift or sacrifice to the Lord. These gifts and sacrifices don’t earn God’s love. They are simply reflections of your loving, respectful, obedient heart. What do people do at sporting events when a great play is made? They cheer. Raise their voice and their hands. They show exuberance, excitement and respect (John 4:23-24; 1 Tim. 2:8).

[4] REDEMPTIVE WORK OF THE MESSIAH – The whole principle of sacrifice teaches the substitution and ultimate work of the Messiah on the cross. Because of God’s Altar, we know that something of value can take the place of another and be found acceptable as a just conclusion. The entire concept of “giving” is first based on God’s sacrificial system in Scripture. Your sacrifice must come from your domestic herd. It has to cost you. It has to come from you. Remember, I mentioned that a sacrifice is really representative of you offering yourself? The first lesson on “giving” in the Word of God embodies the Father gave His only begotten Son (John 3:16).

[5] ESTABLISHMENT OF FEASTS – All the feasts prescribed by the Lord Himself were based on certain gifts brought to God’s Altar. If you believe in celebrating the Lord the way He originally prescribed, they started off from the instructions given to the priests. BTW – You may want to consider that Scripture says His “Word stand forever” (Isa. 40:8), and God Himself says, “these are My feasts” (Lev. 23:2). In 2 Chronicles 8:13, the primitive root for the yearly feasts that are His set appointments is the Hebrew word “ya-ad.” This primitive root implies that during God’s set appointments with His people, the Lord is summoning His people to meet Him at His Table at His stated time. It also tells us during His Biblical feasts that LOVE is directing us into a certain position, so He will be able to engage us for marriage (i.e., be betroth).

BECOMING A MATURE SON THROUGH THE BAPTISM OF FIRE

Blood One Drop Crucifixion

Two chief characteristics of a son of God according to the Word of God is that they serve God with a whole heart (1 Chronicles 28:9) as well as keeping God’s commandments (Proverbs 7:1-2: 1 John 2:3-6; Revelation 14:12). We are not talking about something yucky and legalistic, but a State of Being that resonates at the same frequency as the Word of God – Jesus. Please be encouraged, because this is a divine work of sanctification that’s done not by your might or your power, but by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). All that God requires from you and me is that we put our best foot forward in obeying His Word and surrendering to His Spirit. Thankfully, the Lord our God will give us all the grace that we need (2 Corinthians 9:8; Hebrews 4:16).

“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6 NASB).

Even though the son’s portion came in the Fullness of Time when Jesus came to earth and purchased it on the cross (Galatians 4:4-6), we must experientially appropriate the redemptive gift of sonship the same way that it was acquired. Our journey of “moving unto perfection” is a crucifixion process (much more will be shared in another article). Dying daily is the only way we actually develop into mature, full-grown sons of God (Matthew 10:37-39, 16:24; Mark 8:34, 10:21; Luke 9:23, 14:27). The wisdom of God insists upon our permission to crucify our sin nature, and He will only complete the work of co-crucifixion with Christ with our approval. Volunteering freely in the day of God’s power is a continual daily sanctioning of “not my will, but Yours be done” (Matthew 6:10). Paul shows us the culmination of being an Adult Son is living a crucified life:

“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me” (Galatians 2:20 NASB).

When Jesus walked the earth, He was Jewish and His understanding of the Baptism of Fire, which He experienced at His crucifixion, came from the picture of Burnt Offering in the first five books of the Bible. It would behoove us Christians to start with the same foundation. They were the instructions of Moses on the priests, the altars, and the sacrificial system, which (by the way) is accurate according to the Messiah’s instructions:

“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 NASB)

In fact, the only reason that we can have confidence that Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross was sufficient to pay the penalty for all sin (once and for all) relies on Moses’s instructions on the priests, the altars, and the sacrificial system. When Christians throw out these instructions and the first five books of the Bible in His eternal Word, we throw out the very basis that we can rely on Jesus’s shed blood on the cross washes away all of our sin.
