The Appointed Full Moon Feast Days
The Sacred Seventh Month
August 24, 2011
by DJ. Love, Bnei HaMashalim
(also known as)
The Feast of Temporary Dwellings
The Feast of Tabernacles
The Feast of Ingathering
The Feast of Booths
The Fall Harvest
The Feast of The Seventh Month is
the third of four special annual High Sabbaths that occur during the Sacred
Seventh Month on Yahweh's Sacred Calendar, but it is the only Full Moon Feast. The First
Sabbath Feast Day occurs on the first day of a seven day period, which is immediately
followed by an eighth day (an additional day) which
is, also, the Last Annual High Sabbath on Yahweh's Sacred Calendar. This final High Sabbath is
simply known as "The Last Great Day". The first and eighth days of Sukkot
are solemn assemblies, but the period in between is a "Joyous" occasion for those who
wear the "Mark of Yahweh" or "Shema",
and just like "The Feast of Trumpets," and "The Day of Atonement" it is a
prophetic foretaste of the events that are to occur in the latter days as
recorded primarily in the Book of Revelation in chapters 20 - 22. Remember, all of Yahweh's Annual "High
Sabbaths" are designed by Yahweh to teach those of us with "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes
to See" about the True "Plan of Salvation". All annual High
Sabbaths are physical examples or precursors (Shadows
of Things to Come) of Spiritual Truths, and as such are to be used as
Yahweh established them. To say they are no longer necessary is the same as saying they were
never necessary. Don't be fooled! They serve Yahweh's purpose for those with "Eyes
to See" and "Ears to Hear".
The Precursor to Spiritual Truth
(The Physical Example)
33 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
34 Speak to the children of (Jacob) Israel (Abraham's
physical and Spiritual Seed through Isaac and Jacob, not Ishmael),
saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the "Feast of Booths" (Succoth
or Sukkot) for seven days to Yahweh.
There are two very strong Spiritual implications
here for those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear. The first is with the use of
various tree branches, and second is with the Spiritual implication of the term "Temporary
Dwellings", which I will soon reveal.
(Strongs #5521, cukkah or Sukkah, a hut made of
entwined tree branches or boughs), but can be any hand assembled
temporary dwelling decorated with various tree branches.
Scripturally the Sukkah is a three
sided wooden hut, that is open on one side, and the top is open enough that you can see
the stars through the branches and leaves. The Messiah was born in a Sukkah (temporary
dwelling) during Sukkot (The
Feast of The Seventh Month).
35 On the first day shall be a Holy convocation:
you shall do no servile work.
36 Seven days you shall offer an offering made
by fire to Yahweh: on the eighth day shall be a Holy convocation to
you; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh: it is a solemn assembly; you
shall do no servile work.
Note: An Offering made by Fire,
also, has a strong Spiritual implication, as this offering was (and
is) a physical parallel to the Spiritual Truth, which is to offer
yourself as an offering made by fire to
Yahweh by following in the Spiritual footsteps of Messiah Yahshua (Luke
3:16, 1 Corinthians 3:11-17, Malachi 3:1-3). However, we should,
also, maintain the physical symbolism! It is a Statute forever!
39 However, on the fifteenth day of the (Sacred) seventh
month (precursor to the Sabbath Millennium),
when you have gathered in the (second) fruits of
the land, you shall keep Yahweh's feast seven days: on the first day shall be a solemn rest,
and on the eighth day shall be a solemn rest.
40 You shall take on the first day the fruit of Goodly
Trees, branches of palm trees,
and boughs of thick trees, and
willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before Yahweh your Eternal Father seven days.
Note: There is even greater
symbolism on this subject in Leviticus 23:40, as the fruit
of goodly trees is a direct parallel of the "Tree of Life" in
Revelation 22:2 of which each True Worshipper is a Spiritual Reflection (made
in YHWH's Loving Spiritual Image). The True "Tree of
Life" is none other than Yahweh Himself. Yahweh's True
Worshippers are none other than a Spiritual reflection of YHWH's Righteousness Seeking
Spiritual image, therefore Yahweh's "Fall Harvest" are represented
as "Goodly Trees"; Goodly (Spiritual) Fruit
Bearing Trees! Just the same as the "Tree of Life", which is
depicted as bearing twelve kinds of fruit, with leaves that heal nations.
He shown me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of
The Eternal Father and of the Lamb,
2 in the midst of its street. On this side
of the river and on that was the "Tree of Life", bearing twelve
kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit every month. The leaves
of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
14 They found written in the law, how that
Yahweh had commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths (Strongs
#5521, cukkah or Sukkah; temporary dwellings) in the (Full
Moon) Feast of the Seventh month;
15 and that they should publish and proclaim
in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth to the mountain, and get olive
branches (Jewish Believers),
and branches of wild olive (Repentant Gentile Believers),
and myrtle (Hebrew Believers) branches,
and palm (Hebrew Believers) branches,
and branches of (various) thick
trees (various Believers),
to make booths, as it is written.
16 If the First Fruit is Holy, so is the
lump. If the root is Holy, so are the branches.
17 But if some of the (olive) branches were
broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were
grafted in among them, and became partaker with them of the root of the richness of the olive
18 don't boast over the branches.
But if you boast, it is not you who bear the root, but the root you.
19 You will say then, "Branches were
broken off, that I might be grafted in."
20 True; by their unbelief they were broken
off, and you stand by your faith. Don't be conceited, but fear;
21 for if The Eternal Father didn't spare
the natural branches, neither
will he spare you.
22 See then the goodness and severity of
The Eternal Father. Toward those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you
continue in His goodness; otherwise you, also, will be cut
off (Obviously "Once Saved / Grafted Always
Saved / Grafted" is a lie).
23 They also, if they don't continue in
their unbelief, will be grafted in, for Yahweh is able to graft them in again.
24 For if you were cut out of that which
is by nature a wild olive tree,
and were grafted contrary to (Selfish Human) nature
into a good (selfless) olive
tree, how much more will these, which are the natural
branches, be grafted into their own olive
25 For I don't desire, brothers, to have
you ignorant of this mystery, so
that you won't be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening in part has happened to
Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has
26 and so all Israel will be saved. Even
as it is written, "There will come out of Zion the Deliverer, And he will turn away
ungodliness from Jacob (Israel).
27 This is my covenant to them, When I will
take away their sins."
16 So the people went forth, and brought them,
and made themselves booths (Temporary Dwellings),
everyone on the roof of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house
of The Eternal Father, and in the broad place of the water gate, and in the broad place
of the gate of Ephraim.
17 All the assembly of those who were come
again out of the captivity made booths (Sukkahs),
and lived in the booths (during Sukkot);
for since the days of Joshua, the son of Nun, to that day the children of Israel had not
done so. There was very great gladness.
18 Also day by day, from the first day to the
last day, he read in the book of the law of The Eternal Father. They kept the feast seven
days; and on the eighth day was a solemn assembly, according to the ordinance.
(Leviticus 23 continued)
41 You shall keep it a Feast to Yahweh seven
days in the year (annual):
it is a statute forever throughout
your generations; you shall keep it in the seventh (Sacred
42 You shall dwell in booths (Sukkahs) seven
days; all who are home-born in Israel shall dwell in booths (Sukkahs);
43 that your generations may know that I made
the children of Israel to dwell in booths (temporary
dwelling), when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am Yahweh
your The Eternal Father.
"The Temporary Dwellings"
So what are the Spiritual implications of "The Temporary Dwellings?"
If you haven't already figured it out, it is simply this. All human beings exist in temporary
dwellings (human flesh) all of
their natural lives. Those temporary dwellings being the various physical appearances of the
various human bodies (red and yellow, black and white).
And while the physical bodies (flesh) of
all human beings can be compared to the physical appearance of the various types of trees,
not all human beings can be compared to "Goodly Trees". All Goodly
Trees (True Worshippers; John 4:22-24) are
the temporary dwelling places of Yahweh's Holy Spirit. Which is just another one of Yahweh's "Physical
to Spiritual Parallels." Get used to it, YHVH speaks to us through "Physical to Spiritual
Parallels" (allegories and anthropomorphisms, etc.
.) It is Yahweh's preferred method of reaching out to those of us with "Ears
to Hear, and Eyes to See" (Romans 1:20).
20 For the invisible (Spiritual) things
of Him (YHVH) since the creation
of the world are clearly seen (to those with "Eyes
to See"), being perceived through the (physical) things
that are made, even His everlasting power and divinity; that they (unbelievers/idolators) may
be without excuse,
21 Because, knowing The Eternal Father, they
didn't glorify him as (a Spiritual) The
Eternal Father, neither gave thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless
heart was darkened.
Note: They wrongly perceived
the physical examples of Spiritual Truths to be gods or legalities, when by Righteous Design
they were actually "Physical to Spiritual Parallels" or truths.
Therefore they say that the Ten Commandments were nailed on the cross, and that Jesus and
the Holy Spirit are part of a Trinity; when Yahweh clearly states that he is ONE (just
ONE). Those that do not keep Yahweh's Holy Sabbaths Holy will never
truly understand physical to Spiritual Parallels.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became
23 and traded the glory of the incorruptible (Spiritual) The
Eternal Father (Yahweh) for the (physical) likeness
of an (a physical) image (human
and other idols) of (physically) corruptible
man (saints, gods, Jesus, etc...),
and of (physical) birds, and
four-footed (physical) animals,
and (physically) creeping things.
"The Prophetic Implications"
Concerning "The Plan of Salvation" in the "Latter Days"
Revelation 20:4-6 (The
Sabbath Millennium begins)
4 I saw thrones, and they (the Chosen Few or First
Fruits) sat on them, and judgment was given to them (power
to judge). I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony
of Messiah Yahshua, and for the word of The Eternal Father, and such as didn't worship the
beast nor his image, and didn't receive the Mark on their forehead [what they think]
and on their hand [what they do]. They lived and reigned with Messiah one thousand
years (during The Sabbath Millennium or during the
Seventh Millennium after Adam & Eve).
5 This is the first resurrection (symbolic Spring Harvest
of "Firstfruits").The rest of the dead didn't live
until the (seventh) one thousand (Sabbath
Millennium) years were finished. (NOTE:
The first sentence and the second sentence were reversed for understanding)
6 Blessed and Holy is he (any of the Chosen Few) who
has part in the first resurrection. Over these (Chosen
Few or Firstfruits), the second death has no power, but they will be
priests of The Eternal Father and of Messiah, and will reign with him one thousand (Sabbath
Matthew 5:1-14 (The
Seeing the multitudes, he went up onto a mountain. When he had sat down, his disciples
came to him.
2 He opened his mouth and taught them, saying,
3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit (Chosen
Few), for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven (on
Earth during the Sabbath Millennium).
4 "Blessed are those (Chosen Few) who
mourn, for they shall be comforted (by Yahweh).
5 "Blessed are the humble (Chosen Few),
for they shall inherit (the Kingdom of Yahweh,
which is presently in heaven, but is coming to) The Earth.
6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness (Chosen
Few), for they shall be filled (be
7 "Blessed are the merciful (Chosen Few),
for they shall obtain (Yahweh's) mercy.
8 "Blessed are the pure in heart (Chosen
Few), for they shall see The Eternal Father (Yahweh).
9 "Blessed are the peacemakers (Chosen Few),
for they shall be called sons of The Eternal Father (Yahweh).
10 "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for righteousness' sake (Chosen
Few), for theirs is the Kingdom (New
Jerusalem) of Heaven (on
Earth during the Sabbath Millennium).
11 "Blessed are you when people reproach you, persecute you, and say all kinds
of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 "Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward (presently
located) in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets
who were before you.
13 You are the salt of The Earth (the world),
but if the salt has lost its flavor, what will it be salted with? It is then good for
nothing, but to be cast out and trodden under the feet of men.
14 You are the light of
the world (the Earth).
A city (New Jerusalem) set
on a hill can't be hid.
Revelation 21:1-11 (The
Kingdom of Yahweh on Earth)
I saw a new heaven (atmosphere) and
a new Earth: for the first heaven (atmosphere) and
the first Earth have passed away, and the (first
and only) sea is no more.
2 I saw the Holy City, New
Jerusalem (Kingdom of Yahweh),
coming down out of heaven (the sky) from
Yahweh, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.
The New Jerusalem or Kingdom
of Yahweh is not just a physical city as depicted in symbolism, but those True Worshippers
of Yahweh, who are of "Like Mind" that inhabit the New
Earth. Those that did not break their covenant (marriage
vows) with Yahweh, because of their obedience through love for Yahweh
and His righteousness (to Yahweh's COMMANDMENTS of
LOVE). This is not to say they were people perfected in righteousness
prior to the First Resurrection, but people who did hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matthew
5:6). Now they are filled!
3 I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, "Behold,
The Eternal Father's tabernacle (dwelling) is
with men, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and The Eternal Father
himself will be with them as their Eternal Father.
4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes (Matthew
5:4). Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying,
nor pain, any more. The first things have passed away (Atmosphere,
Earth, Sea or gas, solid, liquid).
5 He (Yahweh) who
sits on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things
new." He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true."
6 He said to me, "It is done! (a
done deal) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
I will give freely to him who is thirsty (for Righteousness) from
the spring of the water of life.
Note: Yahweh does NOT say, "He
who is already filled with righteousness (perfection)," but
he who is thirsty (Matthew 5:6).
In other words, a Righteousness Seeker !
7 He who overcomes (Matthew
10:22 ; "endures to the end"), I will give him these things.
I will be his The Eternal Father, and he will be my son (one
of the First Fruits).
8 But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners,
abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their part
is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur (lava,
magma), which is the second death (a
physical death for physical people)."
9 One of the seven messengers (Aggelos) who
had the seven bowls, who were laden with the seven last plagues came, and he spoke with me,
saying, "Come here. I will show you the wife,
the Lamb's bride."
10 He carried me away in the Spirit to a great
and high mountain (a city on a hill cannot be hid),
and shown me the Holy City, (New) Jerusalem,
coming down out of heaven (the sky) from
11 having the glory of The Eternal Father. Her light was
like a most precious stone, as if it was (similar to) a
jasper stone, clear as crystal;
Revelation 22:7-14 (The
Messenger speaks for Yahweh)
7 "Behold, I (Yahweh,
giver of the message) come quickly. Blessed is he who
keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."
Note: Sometimes the Messenger (Aggelos) speaks "The
Message" for Yahweh and sometimes he speaks righteous words
according to the Holy Spirit of Yahweh. However, the messenger is NOT Yahweh.
8 Now I, John, am the one who heard (the
message) and saw these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to
worship before the feet of the messenger (Aggelos) who
shown me these things.
9 He (the
messenger) said to me, "See you don't do it! I (the
messenger) am a fellow bondservant (not
Yahweh) with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those
who keep the words of this book. Worship The Eternal Father" (not
10 He (the
messenger) said to me, "Don't seal up the words of the prophecy
of this book, for the time is at hand.
11 He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly
still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness
still. He who is Holy, let him be Holy still."
12 "Behold, I (Yahweh,
not messenger) come quickly. My reward is with me,
to repay to each man according to his work.
13 I (Yahweh,
giver of the message) am the Alpha and the Omega, the
First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
14 Blessed are those who do His (Yahweh's) commandments,
that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the
city (New Jerusalem).
Isaiah 65:8-25 (The
Sabbath Millennium on Earth)
8 Thus says Yahweh, As the new wine is found
in the cluster, and one says, Don't destroy it, for a blessing is in it: so will I do for
my servants' sake, that I may not destroy them all.
9 I will bring forth a (Spiritual) seed
out of Jacob (Israel), and out
of Judah an inheritor (The Messiah) of
my mountains; and My chosen (Few) shall
inherit it, and my servants (True Worshippers) shall
dwell there (on Earth).
10 Sharon (the
place) shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for
herds to lie down in, for my people (The First Fruits) who
have sought me.
11 But you who forsake Yahweh, who forget my
Holy mountain (New Jerusalem),
who prepare a table for Fortune, and who fill up mingled wine to Destiny;
12 I will destine you to the sword, and you shall
all bow down to the slaughter; because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you
did not hear; but you did that which was evil in my eyes, and chose that in which I didn't
13 Therefore thus says the L_rd Yahweh, Behold,
My servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry; behold, My servants shall drink, but you
shall be thirsty; behold, My servants shall rejoice, but you shall be put to shame;
14 behold, My servants shall sing for joy of
heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall wail for vexation of spirit.
15 You shall leave your name for a curse to My
chosen (Few); and the L_rd Yahweh
will kill you; and he will call His servants by another name:
16 so that he who blesses himself in the earth
shall bless himself in the The Eternal Father of truth; and he who swears in the Earth shall
swear by the The Eternal Father of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and
because they are hid from my eyes.
17 For, behold, I
create new heavens and a new Earth; and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come
18 But be you glad and rejoice
forever in that which I create; for, behold, I create (New) Jerusalem
a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 I will rejoice in (New) Jerusalem,
and joy in my people; and there shall be heard in her no more the voice of weeping and the
voice of crying.
20 There shall be no more there
an infant of days, nor an old man who has not filled his days; for the child shall die one
hundred years old, and the sinner being one hundred
years old shall be accursed (Judged
100 year period at the "End of The Sabbath Millennium" is symbolized by "The
Last Great Day" of Sukkot.
21 They shall build houses, and inhabit them;
and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
22 They shall not build, and another inhabit;
they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of My
people, and My chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth
for calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of Yahweh, and their offspring with them.
24 It shall happen that, before they call, I
will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall
not hurt nor destroy in all my Holy mountain (New Jerusalem),
So How Do We Celebrate Sukkot?
Only the first day and the last day (8th day) are commanded convocations (assemblies). The rest
of the time should be spent in an early morning and evening prayer AND festivities. Many
members use this time for their family vacation to a camp site. They give gifts (not
exchange gifts), go out to eat, purchase much needed items for the
family or friends, etc. . . The first and last days should be treated like THE SABBATH DAYS
that they are. There should always be a parallel analogy being taught and remembered concerning
The Days of All of The Feast(s) (and other Annual Sabbaths) and
the future time that they symbolize. The Feast of The Seventh Month symbolizes The Sabbath
Millennium wherein there is only love and caring, and evil has been removed from the Earth (temporarily).
Therefore, make it fun, but keep it righteous and good.
Remember The Sabbath Day and Keep it Holy!
