Today’s Topic:

The eighth day

יּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי

A Shabbat


A Holy Convocation


A Solemn Assembly





The last day, a Great day, a Holy Convocation, a Solemn Assembly

Lev.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 Yehovah.

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

[36] Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah:


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


Solemn assembly:  עֲצֶרֶת

עֲצֶרֶת  עֲצָרָה  ătsârâh    ătsereth,  ats-aw-raw', ats-eh'-reth

An assembly, especially on a holy day (a meeting)


Back to Lev. 23

[37] These are the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations,

to offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, everything upon his day:[38] Beside the sabbaths of Yehovah, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto Yehovah.


[39] Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto Yehovah seven days:

 *** on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the “eighth day” shall be a sabbath.

[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 Yehovah your God seven days.

[41] And ye shall keep it a feast unto Yehovah seven days in the year.

It shall be a statute forever 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:[43] That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am Yehovah your God.

[44] And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of Yehovah.

 (Which we did again, Praise God)


Some Solemn assemblies

Lev.23 [36] Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.

Num.29 [35] On the eighth day ye shall have a solemn assembly: ye shall do no servile work therein:

Neh.8 [14] And they found written in the law which Yehovah 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.


2 Chr. 7 [8] Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt. [9] And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.


A few other solemn assemblies

Deut.16 [8] Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yehovah thy God: thou shalt do no work therein.

Joel.1 [14] Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of Yehovah your God, and cry unto Yehovah,

Joel.2 [15] Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:


Even pagan used this word ătsârâh עֲצָרָה

2Kgs.10 - [20] And Jehu said, Proclaim a solemn assembly for Baal. And they proclaimed it.

The last day, that great day of the feast


John 7 **[37] In the last day, that great day of the feast, (the 8th day, a Sabbath) Yeshua 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 Yeshua was not yet glorified.)


Some other verses of 8 day events or events on the 8th day

Gen.17 [12] And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.


Lev.14 [1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
2] This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing:

[9] But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash his flesh in water, and he shall be clean.[10] And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without blemish, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish, and three tenth deals of fine flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil, and one log of oil.[11] And the priest that maketh him clean shall present the man that is to be made clean, and those things, before Yehovah, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:

Lev.15 [1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying,
[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is unclean.

[13] And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.

[14] And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, and come before Yehovah unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and give them unto the priest:[15] And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him before Yehovah for his issue.

Lev.22 [26] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

[27] When a bullock, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall be seven days under the dam; and from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for an offering made by fire unto Yehovah.

Num.6 [1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a
Nazarite, to separate themselves unto Yehovah:

[8] All the days of his separation he is holy unto Yehovah.
[9] And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath defiled the head of his consecration; then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it.
[10] And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:[11] And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, and make
an atonement for him, for that he sinned by the dead, and shall hallow his head that same day.


2Pet.2 [5] And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

Luke.9 [28] And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

[29] And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
[30] And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias
[31] Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
[32] But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.
[33] And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Yeshua, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.
[34] While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
[35] And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying,
This is my beloved Son: hear him.
[36] And when the voice was past, Yeshua was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

John.20 [26] And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Yeshua, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

[27] Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
[28] And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

[29] Yeshua saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

[30] And many other signs truly did Yeshua in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:

But these are written that ye might believe that Yeshua is the Messiah, the Son (the Word) of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.


Beware, soon many pagan holidays

We are commanded by God - Learn not the way of the heathen

Jer.10 [2] Thus saith Yehovah, Learn not the way of the heathen , and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.


The customs of the people are vain

[3] For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. [4] They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

 Once upon a time, Halloween was banned

Halloween was not celebrated in this country until 1845

The origin of Halloween is the Celtic Festival of Samhain, sow win, lord of death and evil spirits.

Long before Messiah (at least 2000 years), Druids in Britain, Ireland, Scotland, France, Germany and other Celtic countries observed the end of summer by making sacrifices to Samhain.

The Celts considered November 1st as being the day of death because the leaves were falling, it was getting darker sooner and temperatures were dropping.

They believed Muck Olla, their sun god was losing strength and Samhain, lord of death, was overpowering him. Further, they believed that on October 31st Samhain assembled the spirits of all who had died during the previous year.

These spirits had been confined to inhabit animal’s bodies for the past year, as punishment for their evil deeds.

They were allowed to return to their former home to visit the living on the eve (Oct. 31) of the Feast of Samhain.

Druid priests led the people in diabolical worship ceremonies in which horses, cats, black sheep, oxen, human beings and other offerings were rounded up, stuffed into wicker cages and burned to death. This was done to appease Samhain and keep spirits from harming them.

Samhain, sounds like sow win: an ancient Celtic festival held on Nov 1 to mark the beginning of winter and the beginning of a false new year. It is also celebrated by modern pagans today, look them up.


See a lot of tombstone decorations where you live? Death abounds, beware!

One last note of caution: Watch boasting “your plans” for the future

Lord willing…

Jas.4 [13] Go to now, you that say, today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:[14] Whereas you know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.

[15] For that you ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

[16] But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.[17] Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

See you tomorrow on the weekly Sabbath, Lord willing J
