Chag Sameach & Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,
In the Mail
I want to thank each and everyone who took the time to write to me and encourage me in this time of testing I am going through. Thank you.
Hi Joseph,I see that congrats (not really though) are in order for the sale of your family’s home.Joe, it truly has been grieving my soul about the breakup of your marriage. I have been praying for Yehovah to turn your wife’s heart back toward you and heal your broken marriage. I know Yehovah will bless you tremendously for your faithfulness in standing your ground in being obedient to Him.He WILL restore to you all that the devil has robbed, stolen and killed from you. Stand firm dear brother.I too was in WCG (I think I mentioned that already to you) and walking this road for over 50 years.I just erased a long narrative about MY experience with an unbelieving mate. All I will say is that no matter what a person could compromise on, even to the point of it including loss of life, which I faced many, many times because of faithfulness to Yehovah regarding His Sabbath and Holy Days, all the devil is interested in from any of us is for us to turn our back on Yehovah, compromise HIS covenant and willingly cast aside the most exquisitely beautiful gift we have been given. In the case of some marriages, it seems like the CLOSER one mate gets to Yehovah, the other one goes further away.Don’t pay attention to all those false prophets who are trying to get you to compromise with Yehovah. Yehovah knows your heart is breaking and your soul has been pierced leaving you inside out empty with grief that is practically unutterable. STAND FIRM! I tell you as Yehovan told Joshua: “Be strong and very courageous!” Just as Yehovah was with Moses and Joshua, He will be with you as well. Yehovah WILL bless you and keep you. Yehovah WILL make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. Yehovah WILL lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. You see, Joseph, Yehovah has RESTORED through you the revealed information of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years and we are rejoicing in these matters that have been missing because those whose responsibility it was to TEACH HIS people these truths hadn’t done it. So yeah, it has made Satan mad as hell and he went after the most precious thing you owned on earth….your marriage and family. To Yehovah be honor, glory and praise forever because you were counted worthy to WALK WITH YEHOVAH IN RIGHTEOUSNESS!!Sincerely,your Sister in YehovahRW
Shalom my dear Brother,No need to respond, as I know how busy you are answering so many questions. I just want to share a little.I am on the edge of tears right now. Thankful tears. Joyful tears. As I read your books, watch your teachings, and even your Facebook posts and responses I have finally truly realized I am not alone knowing what I know. I have lived in such loneliness my whole life, but especially these last three years having the understandings that Yah has shown me. No one would listen to me for the longest time. No one. Especially because I am a woman. I have been labeled crazy more times than I can count and endured persecution nearly my whole life.When I was a child, I began studying the prophets and Revelation. Those were the most exciting books of Scripture to me. As a teen, I ate everything that authors like Hagee, Lahaye and Jenkins wrote. Even though they were completely wrong they still stirred me to get into even deeper prophecy study. During the early 2000s my interest peaked even more. I thought about prophecy day and night. Well until my life sorta blew apart for a few years, but eventually I got back on track.I will never forget the day that Yah told me that I was going to go through the Tribulation. He had me climb up and write it on my wall. The words “Tribulation Ministries.” I remember saying to Him, what? You mean I am going to have a pre-trib ministry and shelter or set one up for the people left behind. He said no. He said Tribulation Ministries. He said I was going to help people through the Tribulation. I had a hard time understanding at that point bc i still hadn’t given up my pre-trib rapture understanding. But Yah was firm in what He shared with me. This began my journey to absolute truth and Torah keeping. This only scratches the surface of what He began to share with me.Anyway, that is another tiny little snippet of my journey. I am just so baruch to know that I am not alone now. You and Becca and now others I am meeting know the same things. I am not alone! I am praising Yah! Truly in tears! Beautiful cleansing tears. He keeps His promises and everything He says is true.I love you brother. I am thankful for the ministry He has put in you. HalleluYah!Sincerely,ST
Shalom Joe.A rare event occurred to me last night that I woke me in tears of joy.After reading today’s newsletter last evening, I went to bed and show a vision of a friend of mine going home on a new road that seemed longer from his work place.He seemed contented since earlier,it used to take him long to reach home on the other one due to traffic jams,changing of commuter vehicles and costs.I felt so happy.To most,it might not seem wisher in their eyes of the route yore taking but Yehovah has chosen you as a vessel of honour to sacrifice your all for His glorious kingdom.When you mentioned tears,I got them full in my eyes about what you are about to do.Your joy,home,wife children and grands.Your family.All I can do is to pray for your dear family(since am part of it too).May the Great wonderful El fill us with love to go with you wherever His Spirit leads you.I recall when, us, in my group em-blazed Torah time as we mikvahed,Standing in the fast flowing water of River Ruguti, prayed individually: “Father,Yehovah ,God of Israel,’Send Me'”.That vow, keeps me going,to His honour. Its not that easy though.Equally, am, and will continue, praying for you ,your mission and all members of The Royal Family of YHVH in its entirety.Without Forgetting Mrs.J.Dumond.Our Almighty loves dearly to open her heart .Happy Yom haKippurim Joe.
Shalom Sabbat.Henry Mate

You are commanded to be Joyful during this week.
Duet 16:13-15 “You shall observe the Feast of Tabernacles seven days, when you have gathered from your threshing floor and from your winepress. And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant and the Levite, the stranger and the fatherless and the widow, who are within your gates. Seven days you shall keep a sacred feast to the Lord your God in the place which the Lord chooses, because the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you surely rejoice.
2 Chronicles 7:8-10 At that time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt. And on the eighth day they held a sacred assembly, for they observed the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days. On the twenty-third day of the seventh month he sent the people away to their tents, joyful and glad of heart for the good that the Lord had done for David, for Solomon, and for His people Israel.
Psalm 81:1-4 Sing aloud to God our strength;
Make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob.
Raise a song and strike the timbrel,
The pleasant harp with the lute.
Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon,
At the full moon, on our solemn feast day.
For this is a statute for Israel,
A law of the God of Jacob.
Do not stay in your home and be miserable this week. You are commanded to save a tithe of your income and to then spend that Tithe on yourself for this week. You are commanded by Yehovah to take these 8 days and have a holiday at a place He has set up. What religion tells you to tithe to yourself? And to spend the money on yourself. Only Yehovah does.
Deut 14:22-27 “You shall truly tithe all the increase of your grain that the field produces year by year. And you shall eat before the Lord your God, in the place where He chooses to make His name abide, the tithe of your grain and your new wine and your oil, of the firstborn of your herds and your flocks, that you may learn to fear the Lord your God always. But if the journey is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, or if the place where the Lord your God chooses to put His name is too far from you, when the Lord your God has blessed you, then you shall exchange it for money, take the money in your hand, and go to the place which the Lord your God chooses. And you shall spend that money for whatever your heart desires: for oxen or sheep, for wine or similar drink, for whatever your heart desires; you shall eat there before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household. You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no part nor inheritance with you.
Yehovah wants you to take 10% of your income and spend it on yourself. To spend it on whatever your heart desires. He wants you to rejoice with Him. How AWESOME IS THAT!!!?
I want to focus once again on the meaning of this the Feast of Sukkot just like we have been doing for Trumpets, being the birth of Yehshua and the day He is to come back on and The Day of Atonement which is the day when Satan is locked away and our judgment day.
The Feast of Sukkot is for seven days and it represents the wedding feast of Israel to Yehovah and this is why we are to rejoice. It is OUR WEDDING WEEK to Yehovah. This is the conclusion to the covenant made at Mount Sinai. Mount Sinai was the betrothal or engagement of Israel to Yehovah which took place on Shavuot or the Feast of Pentecost. Israel said they will do all that Yehovah has commanded five times.
Many Christians quote Hebrews about entering into that rest with God. But do they ever stop and actually read this part of the bible? Let us now read it and understand it.
Hebrews 4:1-13 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:
“So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest,’ ” although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
For He has spoken in a certain place of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”; and again in this place: “They shall not enter My rest.”
This rest that Christians want to enter is stated right here as being the Seventh Day Sabbath. Yet they will not keep it.
Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said:
“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts.”
For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
Each week we rest on the Sabbath not working or doing our own business or employing anyone else to do work for us. Each week we enter that rest spoken of in Hebrews. But Yehovah was not talking just about the weekly Sabbath rest. Most people know that this is speaking of the millennial rest that we are to enter. That is the seventh Millennium.
If the seventh Millennium is likened to the weekly Sabbath then why do Christians abhor it so much? Why will they not practice each week what they say they want to do for the seventh Millennium? That is as Hebrews says, to enter into His rest.
In the chart below we have used the Gregorian years to reckon by and counted each Jubilee Cycle by 49 years. We are currently at the end of the 6th Millennium and about to enter the 7th Millennium of His Rest. We are in the year 2020 right now at this writing and the 7th Millennium begins with the 120th Jubilee year in 2045. That is just 24 1/2 years from now.
Sukkot is a seven-day celebration of the wedding. Let’s take a look again at what Yehshua said during this time.
In John 7:2 we are told this is the Feast of Tabernacles also known as Sukkot. Then in John 7:37-39 Yehshua said on the last day, the seventh day of the Feast;
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
Where have the scriptures said this?
Isaiah 12:1-6 And in that day you will say:
“O Yehovah, I will praise You;
Though You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me.
Behold, God is my salvation, (Yehshua)
I will trust and not be afraid;
‘For the Lord Yehovah, is my strength and song;
He also has become my salvation.’ ” (Yehovah has become my Yehshua)
Therefore with JOY you will draw water
From the wells of salvation. (Yehshua)
And in that day you will say:
“Praise Yehovah, call upon His name;
Declare His deeds among the peoples,
Make mention that His name is exalted.
Sing to Yehovah,
For He has done excellent things;
This is known in all the earth.
Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion,
For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!”
These words of Isaiah were sung on this day. They sang these words and were so ecstatic with joy during this ceremony, which was accompanied by trumpets, that it was said, “Whoever had not witnessed it had never seen Rejoicing at all.”
On the last day of the feast of tabernacles, the Jews used to bring water in a golden pitcher from the fountain of Siloam, and pour it, mingled with wine, on the sacrifice on the altar, with great rejoicing. This is the allusion in Yehshuas’ words on “the last day of the feast”. The pouring out of water indicated repentance as shown to us in 1 Samuel.
1 Samuel 7:5-6 And Samuel said, “Gather all Israel to Mizpah, and I will pray to the Lord for you.” So they gathered together at Mizpah, drew water, and poured it out before the Lord. And they fasted that day, and said there, “We have sinned against the Lord.” And Samuel judged the children of Israel at Mizpah.
Now compare this to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the last days. But before you read Zechariah 12:10 I want you to know who is talking throughout this whole chapter. So please go and read it. It is Yehovah. Yehovah is going to do this and that as you read it. So when He then says in verse 10 He is talking about Himself. It is upon Yehovah whom they will look and see whom they have pierced.
I am just going to put the verse here so you have no excuse not to read them.
The Lord Will Give Salvation
Zec 12:1 The burden of the Word of Jehovah for Israel, says Jehovah, who stretches forth the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.
Zec 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the peoples all around, and it shall also be against Judah in the siege against Jerusalem.
Zec 12:3 And in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples. All who lift it shall be slashed, and all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.
Zec 12:4 In that day, says Jehovah, I will strike every horse with terror, and his rider with madness. And I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness.
Zec 12:5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The people of Jerusalem shall be my strength in Jehovah of Hosts their God.
Zec 12:6 In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire among cut grain. And they shall devour all the peoples all around, on the right hand and on the left hand. And Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her place, in Jerusalem.
Zec 12:7 Jehovah also shall save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the people of Jerusalem may not be magnified above Judah.
Zec 12:8 In that day Jehovah shall defend around the people of Jerusalem. And it will be, he who is feeble among them at that day shall be like David; and the house of David shall belike God, like the Angel of Jehovah before them.
Zec 12:9 And it shall be in that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
Now you should understand who was pierced.
Zechariah 12:10-14, 13:1 “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves; all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves.
“In that day a fountain shall be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness.
There shall be a latter outpouring of the Spirit like the former one on Pentecost.
Joel 2:28-29 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
This outpouring of the Holy Spirit takes place just before the end of the 6th Millennium as we enter into the 7th Millennium. It is taking place right now, today and the fact that you are understanding these Holy Days and what they mean is proof that His Spirit has been poured out on you. Just a few years ago you would have nothing to do with any of this.
Revelation 7:13-17 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
And I said to him, “Sir, you know.”
So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Again we are talking about the Feast of Sukkot and how it represents the marriage celebrations. They party for 7 days and it is during this time that the bride has made herself ready. We read about this in Revelation 19:1-9
After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God! For true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her.” Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Alleluia!” Then a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”
And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”
The Last Great Days of the Feast represents the 7th Millennium. The one the book of Hebrews says we are to strive to enter into. It is the time when we have put away our sinful ways and repented by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, by the pouring out of the water libation on this day as our sins are washed away. Do you get this? Does it register with you what is going on here?
I want you to look at the chart again and notice that the Temple of Yehovah built by Solomon was finished at the end of the 3rd Millennial day in the year 967 BC. It was then destroyed in 70 C.E. which is almost at the end of the 4th Millennial Day. Yehshua also was compared to the Temple.
John 2:17-22 Then His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up.”
So the Jews answered and said to Him, “What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?”
Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”
But He was speaking of the temple of His body. Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.
Just as the Temple was destroyed on the 4th Millennial day, Yehshua was also killed on the 4th day of the week and placed in the tomb just before the 5th day was to begin. He was in the grave for 3 days and 3 nights and came out just at the end of the 7th Day of rest. The women came to anoint the body at the start of the first day while it was still dark.
Yehshua is not going to come back until when? The end of the seventh Millennium just before the 8th Millennium begins. Why?
We are told that at the end of the seventh Millennial rest, Satan is going to be set loose. He is bound just like we are shown with the two goats on the Day of Atonement and bound for 1000 years. You can read this in Lev 16 and you should so you can compare it to what we are about to read in Revelation. It is the same thing. We read this on the Day of Atonement 5 days ago.
Revelation 20:1-15 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.
The Saints Reign with Christ 1000 Years
And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
Satanic Rebellion Crushed
Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
The Great White Throne Judgment
Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Yehovah is not going to rule over this earth while Satan is still around. It is only once Satan has finally been put away once and for all that the marriage can then take place. That only happens at the end of the 7th Millennium. That only happens at the time when Yehshua said “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But until Satan is destroyed, just like Yehshua being in the grave for 3 days and 3 nights, Yehovah will not come back to this earth until the end of the 7th Millennium.
So who is to rule during this Millennial day of rest.
Hosea 3:4-5 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, without ephod or teraphim.
God’s Charge Against Israel
Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the Lord their God and David their king. They shall fear the Lord and His goodness in the latter days.
Ezekiel 37:21-28 “Then say to them, “Thus says the Lord God: ‘Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. Then they shall be My people, and I will be their God.
“David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. Then they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell there, they, their children, and their children’s children, forever; and My servant David shall be their prince forever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people. The nations also will know that I, the Lord, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” ’ ”
Jermiah 30:3, 8-9 For behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘that I will bring back from captivity My people Israel and Judah,’ says the Lord. ‘And I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.’ ”
‘For it shall come to pass in that day,’
Says the Lord of hosts,
‘That I will break his yoke from your neck,
And will burst your bonds;
Foreigners shall no more enslave them.
But they shall serve the Lord their God,
And David their king,
Whom I will raise up for them.
It will be King David who Yehovah is going to raise up and reign over us that will teach us the proper way to worship Yehovah during this 7th Millennial day of rest. Just like we all learn on the Sabbath by studying His word, King David will teach us and make us ready for the wedding at the end of the 7th Millennium after Satan is destroyed forever.
We read in John 7 on the Last Great Day, the 7th day of the Feast, Yehshua made His statement about living waters, and it was during this time that they made the water libation ceremony from the pool of Siloam. This would have been for the afternoon service at 3 PM. All the sacrifices were done at 9 AM and 3 PM each day.
As we read the rest of Chapter 7 and then chapter 8 we see that Yehshua spent the evening after the 7th day on the Mount of Olives.
After sunset of the 7th day is the start of the 8th Day Feast. It is also known as Shemini Atzeret. In Israel today they sing and dance and REJOICE as they dance with the Torah scroll this evening. That Torah Scroll is Yehovah.
John 1:1, 14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Let me write this so you can see it clearer.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Yehovah, and the Word was Yehovah.
And the Word-Yehovah became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. It was Yehovah that we crucified.
When you dance with the Torah Scroll it is as if you are dancing with your Groom Yehovah. This is the same day that John 10:22 has called the Feast of Dedication. It was the 8th Day Feast also known as the day of dedication as this was the day Solomon dedicated the Temple and Yehovah came down and filled the Temple so much with smoke that the priests had to leave the temple area. This is not speaking of the Jewish Chanukah in December. Absolutely not!!!
John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
In “the treasury” where it was spoken (see on Joh_8:20) stood two colossal golden lamp-stands, on which hung a multitude of lamps, lighted after the 3 PM sacrifice, diffusing their brilliancy, it is said, over all the city. Around these, the people danced with great rejoicing.
It is under these conditions that Yehshua cried out, , “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD”
It was John who spoke of this light.
John 1:8-9 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
Isa 42:6 “I, the Lord, have called You in righteousness,
And will hold Your hand;
I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the Gentiles, Mal_4:2, etc.).
Yehovah was that Pillar of Light that they followed in the wilderness for 40 years.
Again the 8th Day is the 8th Millennium. It is at this time when Yehovah will appear to us after Satan is done away, at the end of the 7th Millennium.
Now read the gift to us from Yehovah on our wedding day of the 8th Day.
Rev 21:1-27 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
The New Jerusalem
Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal. Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel. The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
The Glory of the New Jerusalem
But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
The River of Life
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.
Here again, is that river of life. Flowing waters.
The Feast of Sukkot is a celebration of the marriage that is about to take place to our Groom Yehovah. This takes place after Satan is thrown into the lake of fire. our Sins are washed away and we Israel and all those who have joined themselves to Israel have made ourselves ready during the Last Great Day, the 7th Millennium of rest under the leadership of the resurrected King David. Then on the 8th day or the 8th Millennium Yehovah then dwells with us on earth and gives the New Jerusalem as we have just read.
We just read how there would no more night there. Yehovah is the light. If there is no more night then the days never end and time as we know it ends. There is no ninth millennium. Yehovah now dwells with His bride on earth. He now dwells with us on earth.
This Last Great Day of the Feast and the 8th Day Feast are so exciting to understand and to be a part of.
This is why we rejoice during this week-long celebrations. So REJOICE and be merry in anticipation of our wedding to the Creator at the end of this 7-day celebration.
