Feast of Tabernacles

Oh how we have been robbed... we... Christians. Today starts one of the most beautiful Feasts of the LORD and we have been robbed of it for thousands of years. Today is the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles.
It is Israel's Thanksgiving feast to acknowledge the Fall Harvest and God's provision for them. It is also a time to remember Israel's deliverance from Egypt and their wandering in the wilderness for forty years.
It is also a time to remember that our time here on this earth is temporary and that our eyes and hearts should be focused on eternal things and not the physical.

And it is a feast that has not been fulfilled yet.

Jesus Christ will fulfill this Feast during His second coming.

The date for this feast is in the bible. 

“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 the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. 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. 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. Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: 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 the LORD your God” (Lev. 23:29-43)

Jesus Christ will return to fulfill this feast, during this feast, just as He did with all the others!  Every other feast in the bible was fulfilled during that feast to the day and to every detail!  Seems like this might be a pretty important time to be aware of... hughh.?

"through embracing paganism, mankind has lost any understanding of spiritual reality," Dr. Robert D. Heidler, "The Messianic Church Arising!"

There is a huge pull happening all over the world.  Christians are being pulled back to the Old Testament.  NOT to take upon the yoke of the law.  But to learn about and better understand WHO we are as believers, Children of God, fellow heirs of the kingdom, Christians.

The past two years have been so eye opening for my family and many of our friends.  I am BLOWN AWAY at how many are hearing/feeling/receiving the same calling and what is being revealed.

For thousands of years, Jewish roots, OUR roots, God's roots, have been stripped out of churches... out of Christianity and much of the power left with it!  But it was replaced with something.  Almost ALWAYS when something is taken away it is replaced with something.  And it was replaced with popular pagan rituals that revolved around the power and traditions of the Roman Empire.  And it was not an accident.  Satan knew exactly what he was doing just as he did in the garden of Eden with Eve.  He is no fool.  The word of God says he is a thief.  He is the master and author of lies.  And one of his greatest attacks on the "church" was through the Roman Emperor Constantine.  Oh it makes me so furious.

And because it "sounds" like a lesson from a history book, many people just glaze over it, reject it, make excuses for it, or try to justify it.  But we have been stripped and robbed of our inheritance as Children of God.  Whether we are directly descended from the 10 scattered tribes of Israel (who inter-married with Gentile pagans and became "Gentile like"), from the tribe of Judah (Jewish) or Gentile (who is grafted in after accepting the Messiah)... as a believer in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the Messiah for our salvation... we are ISRAEL!  There is one tree. (Romans 11:15-24) There is ONE NEW MAN.  There is one family of God.  We are God's children.

Over the next week as this Feast (which means "God Appointment" in the original language) is celebrated and observed/remembered, I am going to talk about this Feast and how it all got lost... and how it is all coming back!  Along with a drive back to the root of Christianity, the LORD is unleashing the power of the Holy Spirit in mighty ways!  He is gathering His people and He is purifying His Bride!


There are two books that speak clearly and reveal so much of this... and it is all scripture based (with some historical evidence of the time as well!).  I beg of you to order them on Amazon and read them.

I so look forward to sharing this with you!
