Oct. 15, 2008

Shabbat Shabbton

My Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign

Exod.31[ 13] Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.

[ 14] Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

[15] Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

[16] Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

[17 ] It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.


Feast of Tabernacles

Leviticus 23:34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, the fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.


35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.

36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly - ; and ye shall do no servile work therein.

[40] And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.

[41] And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

[42] Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:

17] Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

[18] I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Neh.8 [1 ] And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.

[13] And on the second day were gathered together the chief of the fathers of all the people, the priests, and the Levites, unto Ezra the scribe, even to understand the words of the law.

[14] And they found written in the law which the LORD had commanded by Moses, that the children of Israel should dwell in booths in the feast of the seventh month:

[15] And that they should publish and proclaim in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth unto the mount, and fetch olive branches, and pine branches, and myrtle branches, and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written.

[16] So the people went forth, and brought them, and made themselves booths, every one upon the roof of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of God, and in the street of the water gate, and in the street of the gate of Ephraim.

[17] And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths: for since the days of Jeshua the son of Nun unto that day had not the children of Israel done so. And there was very great gladness. ,

[18] Also day by day, from the first day unto the last day, he read in the book of the law of God. And they kept the feast seven days; and on the eighth day was a solemn assembly, according unto the manner

Our Sukkah is a shadow of our future Home

Rev.21[ 3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, 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 with them, and be their God.

Isa.65 [17] For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

Isa.66 [22] For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.

2Pet.3 [13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Rev.21 [1] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.


It is all about Messiah who has eternal life

Matt.19[ 16] And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

Matt.25[ 46] And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

John.12[ 25] He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

John.17[ 3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent

John.3[ 15] That whosoever believeth in him ( Messiah ) should not perish, but have eternal life.

John.5[ 39] Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me, Messiah.

John.6[ 54] Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

[68] Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

John.10[ 28] And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

1John.5[ 11] And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. [12 ] He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.[13 ] These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

[20] And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life .

1: And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

netser - a shoot; figuratively, a descendant: - branch


Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.


Acts 24:5 For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:



back to Isaiah 11:

2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him ( Messiah ), the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

3 And shall make him ( Messiah ), of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he ( Messiah ), shall not judge after the sight of his ( Messiah ), eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ( Messiah ), ears:

4 But with righteousness shall he ( Messiah ), judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he ( Messiah ), shall smite the earth with the rod of his ( Messiah ), mouth, and with the breath of his ( Messiah ), lips shall he ( Messiah ), slay the wicked.

5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his ( Messiah ), loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his ( Messiah ), reins.

6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.

9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his ( Messiah ), rest shall be glorious.


John 12:13 Took branches of palm trees,and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.


John "7"


1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.

2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles ( Lev. 23:34 ) was at hand.

3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.

4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.

5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.

6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.

7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.

9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

11 Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?

12 And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.

13 Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.

14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.


37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, ( the 8th day - Lev. 23:36 ) Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.


Deuteronomy 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet ( Messiah ) from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken


back to John "7" - 41 Others said, This is the Messiah / Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?


42 Hath not the scripture said, That Messiah / Christ cometh of the seed of David,


Psalms 132:11 The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I ( Messiah ) set upon thy throne.


back to John "7" - and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?


Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he ( Messiah )come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.



Gen.33[ 17] And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him an house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called Succoth .

No 4 species as Judaism states!

The Four Species:

****Where does it say this in the Word?

Etrog - citron (a citrus fruit native to Israel)

Lulav - palm branch

Hadas - myrtle branch

Arava - willow branch

The etrog is held separately. The three branches are bound together and referred to collectively as the lulav.

---- another

The lulav, whose central pillar is referred to as its "backbone" (shidrah) resembles the backbone of man.

The leaves of the myrtle branch (hadas) resemble the eyes of man.

The leaves of the willow branch (aravah) resemble the lips of man.

The etrog resembles the heart of man.

------ another

The Etrog represents the heart, the seat of our emotions.

The Hadas (myrtle) has leaves shaped like an eye.

The Lulav (date palm) represents the spine, from where our actions emanate.

The Aravah (willow) represents the lips, our speech.

* Lulav the spine
* Hadass the eye
* Aravah the mouth
* Etrog the heart

****there is no Mitzvah of a lulav


With these four species in hand, Jews recite a blessing and wave the species in six directions (east, south, west, north, up and down) to symbolize that God is everywhere. The four species are also held during the Hallel prayer.

Each day during Sukkot, there are special processions in synagogue around the Torah. The etrog and lulav are held during these processions. These processions, called hoshanas because during the procession a prayer with the refrain hoshana (please save us) is recited, commemorate similar processions around the altar of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem.


Now truth, here is what the Scripture says:


Leviticus 23:40 And ye shall take you on the "first day" the


boughs of goodly trees,


branches of palm trees,


and the boughs of thick trees, -


and willows of the brook; -


and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven day.
