THE FEAST of TABERNACLES

Leviticus 23:34 "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying the fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord." We are in the Hebrew year 5777. As I pondered on the importance of all the "Feasts of the Lord", This Feast stood out to me because of the "SEVENS"! The Feast of Tabernacles is the seventh and last feast of the cycle which begins in the spring with Passover.The Feast of Tabernacles is in the seventh month and lasts for seven days! This year ends with three sevens, 5777. This means not only does the feast carry three sevens, this year carries three sevens as well. Seven IS the number of spiritual completion and three IS the number of divine completion! This means there is a double portion poured out for us this year! The Feast of Tabernacles is a rehearsal of the completion of Yehweh's divine plan of salvation. We rehearse the joyful time when our Messiah returns to begin His reign on earth! The Fea…

LOVE

While studying recently, my thoughts were on something Jesus said and what Pilate asked, Jesus said in John 18:37 (NKJ)..."that I might bear witness to the TRUTH. Everyone who is of the TRUTH hears My voice." In verse 38 Pilate asks Jesus "What is TRUTH?" As I went to other translations, I found that Pilate could be translated as asking "Who is TRUTH?" The point for me was that we all, like Pilate, must make a decision! Jesus says "I am the way, the TRUTH and the life." For us as believers, Jesus is the Way we have searched for, the TRUTH we have sought for and the Life we long for! Love is really not what we are looking for, but Who we are looking for!!! This perspective changes us...Jesus is TRUTH...He is LOVE...(1 John 4:8). We are to walk in this TRUTH and this LOVE as disciples of the Lord. (Ephesians 5:2). Jesus imparts to us this ability to walk in LOVE through our spirit, not through our emotions! As we continue to "seek, ask and kn…

DINNER INVITATION

In the passage of scripture that Luke described in chapter 14 as the "Great Supper", verse 15 says that one who heard what Jesus was teaching said "Someday God will have a kingdom feast and how blessed will be the ones who get to eat the best bread of the kingdom." This one was assuming the kingdom of God was coming one day, but what Jesus was teaching through this parable... that it had already begun with the invitation to come to Him, the King. In the rest of this passage it says a man invited many to come to a great supper he had prepared, just the same as the Lord invites us to come to His feast of life. Provision and our destiny can be found there, along with vision and strength. Even though they were invited, when everything was ready, all found excuses not to come. Some just didn't want to go, some I believe thought they were supposed to bring something to the party but felt embarrassed because of lack and declined the invitation.                        …
