Yada has just finished a new chapter: Sukah - Tabernacles. To quote from his e-mail:

Quote:
This chapter is finished and ready for posting. It covers a great deal more than just Sukah-Tabernacles. There are several long discussions regarding Yahweh’s and Yahushua’s name, the seven lessons of the Sabbath, the meaning of trust and reliance, a summary of the Miqra’ as the plan and timeline, the difference between fear and revere, and the meaning of the fourth day of creation.

-Yada


I also very much enjoyed God's Resume that Yada included.

Here is the new chapter:

Sukah – Tabernacles



Camping Out With God…

Called Tabernacles, Tents, and Booths, the seventh Miqra’ is the result of the first six. Sukah is our reward. We are offered the opportunity to camp out with God—to party with Him—sheltered and entertained by our Creator. The final Miqra’ is symbolic of eternity, of life with Yahweh on earth and then in heaven.
Similar to the Miqra’ of Passover, Sukah is invocative of two fulfillments, a dress rehearsal and the main event. With Passover, Abraham’s trust in and reliance on Yahweh ushered in the Covenant. Then, exactly 40 Yowbel (2000 years) later, in the same place and in the same way, Yahushua enabled the Covenant with His sacrifice.
With Sukah, the dress rehearsal began on Tabernacles in 2 BCE when “the Word became flesh and tabernacled with us, and we beheld His glory.” (John 1:14) God, who is eternal, wasn’t “born” but instead became visible to us in man’s forth millennium consistent with Genesis one. He literally camped out with His creation for 33 years, this visit culminating in 33 CE.
Yet as with Abraham, this was not the fulfillment of the Miqra’ of Sukah, merely a diminutive foreshadow of what would come. And come it will. Five days after Yahweh’s return on Yowm Kippurym, the Millennial Sabbath will commence on a Sabbath, ushering in one thousand years of paradise on earth. During this time God will camp out with His creation. Most of this chapter will be devoted to that story.
But before we delve into the fulfillment of Sukah, I feel compelled to clear up one of the most troubling myths poisoning Christendom—the substitution of Christmas for Tabernacles. To begin, celebrating birthdays in general, and God’s specifically, is a religious rite born and bred in Babylon. Mother Earth was said to be impregnated by the sun on Easter, the Sun-day closest to the Vernal Equinox. Nine months later, on the Winter Solstice, the Son of the Sun was born. Catholics have come to call this festival “Christmas.” Yet, celebrating either date, the two holiest on the Christian calendar, is an abomination from Yahweh’s perspective.
Since God was not born, the whole concept of Him having a birthday is absurd. “A child was born to us and a Son was given to us” on the Miqra’ of Sukah as was foretold, but the Spirit which made Him God had witnessed creation—fifteen billion years earlier.
In His eyewitness account, the Creator presented the significance of the fourth day of creation. It predicts events in mankind’s fourth millennium, while at the same time, placing Yahushua’s arrival within the context of the Miqra’.
As you read His testimony, pay special attention to the fact that God does not say that the sun and moon were created on the fourth day, only that they became “signs,” which means they became visible. The same thing can be said of Yahushua’s arrival at the end of man’s fourth millennium after the fall. We were able to see Yah.
“God said, ‘There shall be lights (luminaries) in the expanse of the heavens to divide (separate and set apart) day from night. And let them exist as symbols and signs (‘owth – as signals, distinguishing makers, and remembrances; as non-verbal representations which have meaning; as miraculous proof and wondrous indications; as illustrations, examples, and metaphors which make something more clearly known; as an accounting or recording used in evaluating recompense and reward; as an ensign at the end of an upright pole conveying the leader’s message to his followers) for the appointed symbolic meetings and times (mow’ed – the designated periods which are related to others for a specific purpose authorized by the authority; the set-apart feast and festival celebrations of communion), for days, and for years (as a measure of life and renewal).” (Genesis 1:14)
These two sentences convey the profound truth that the Miqra Mow’ed of Yahuweh are “wondrous signs which convey an important message” from our Creator. Understand the Mow’ed Miqra’ and you will understand God, understand yourself, our relationship and purpose, the means to salvation and the very framework of time itself. Failing to understand the Miqra’ Mow’ed, the appointed called-out meetings and signs, clerics and laity alike have been deceived into believing that future prophetic events cannot be dated. In actuality, they are simply ignorant of the means provided to date every significant event—past, present, and future.
Yahuweh’s message, His meetings, are all designed to prompt a choice. We can choose to live in the light or die in darkness. “They exist as lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light to the earth (‘erets - world), existing and established. God fashioned (prepared, appointed, and instituted) the two large luminaries, the greater (gadowl – the more enormous in magnitude and intensity, the mighty, important and distinguished one; from gadal, meaning “to be magnified, great and powerful; to make and do great things) luminary to rule (to have dominion and authority over, to govern) the day and the lesser (qatan – smaller, insignificant, and unimportant, the younger chronologically, the lowly of status; from quwt, meaning loathed, opposed, abhorred, and detested) luminary to govern the night (the absence of light; gloom and shadow), and the stars.” (Genesis 1:15-16)
This is all brought into focus with the opening stanza of Yahuchanan/John’s witness: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into existence through Him. And apart from Him, nothing exists. In Him is life, and the life is the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, but the darkness does not comprehend it…. This is the true Light who came into the world to enlighten every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, but the world does not know Him. But to as many who received and accepted Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who trust and rely upon His name, to those who are born not of blood nor the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and camped out (skenoo – encamped, pitched a temporary tent, and thus tabernacled) among us and w beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1-14)
While the Hebrew and Greek words for “dwell and dwelt” are use regularly in Scripture, this is the only place “skenoo” is found. Yahweh went out of His way to let us to know that He entered our world in the form of a man on the very day He said that He would pitch His tent with us, on the Miqra’ of Tabernacles and Tents.
In the “Chay – Life” chapter of the Genesis Volume of Yada Yahweh, you will find a thorough review of this Genesis one passage, along with documentation to prove that Yahushua’s arrival occurred as promised at the end of the fourth millennium after the fall, and specifically on Tabernacles in 2 BCE. But since the year of the dress rehearsal isn’t germane to the Miqra’ of Sukah, we’ll move on to its glorious fulfillment.
The invitation to the party begins with…“Yahuweh spoke (dabar – communicated the word) to (‘el – as God with) Moseh, saying (‘amar – declaring and promising), ‘Converse (dabar – talk together and communicate) with (‘el – to) the children (beney – sons) of Yisra’el (those who strive with and are empowered by God), saying (‘amar) to them, “On the fifteenth day of the seventh (sabi’i – from shaba’, meaning sworn oath, [a.k.a., Yah’s Word]) month (hodes – time of renewal beginning with the new moon) is the festival feast (hag – coming together and celebration, the party) of Shelters (sukah – Tabernacles, Booths, or Tents, a covering for protection, and the temporary dwelling place where families live and the Ark of the Covenant abides) for seven (seba’) days in proximity with (la – beside, according to, and concerning) Yahuweh.”’” (Leviticus 23:33-34)
It is the seventh Miqra. It lasts for seven days and occurs in the seventh month. Seba’, based upon shaba’, is a symbol of Yah’s Word as it means “sworn oath or vow.” It provides the basis for the Sabbath, Yahweh’s six plus one pattern upon which His plan of salvation is built. In Scripture, God who is one, plus man who is six, equals perfection—seven.
A derivation of sukah, succoth, is first used in Genesis 33:17. There “Ya’aqob traveled to Succoth (the Tabernacle of Protection) and built a house and made shelters for his animals.” Yahushua spent His first night as man in one of these shelters. It wasn’t a coincidence.
The Exodus begins: “Now the children of Yisra’el traveled from Rameses (a city named after the Egyptian sungod) to Succoth (the place of shelter), about six hundred thousand (the number of man being six), aside from children.” Exodus 13:20 tells us that Succoth was set apart from the wilderness: “Then they set out from Succoth and camped in Etham on the edge of the wilderness.”
We find a reference to sukah in Jonah. That is not surprising considering that the book is entirely Messianic, and is dedicated to the protective nature of Yahweh’s Set Apart Spirit. “Then Yonah (meaning “Dove,” the symbol of the Spirit) went out and made a shelter (sukah – covering) and relaxed in the shade.” (Jonah 4:5) Protection is found in the “shade of the Almighty”—Yah’s Spirit.
In Job 27:18, sukah is “a home in which the watchman made.” A sukah is “a protected dwelling place, a home in which people live.”
YashaYahu’s prophetic journey begins: “The daughter of Zion is left like a sukah/shelter in a vineyard, like a watchman’s sukah/tent in a cultivated field, like a besieged city.” (Isaiah 1:8) Isaiah 4:6 says that a sukah is “a shelter to provide shade, and a refuge and protection from storms (a metaphor for Satan).”
In Amos 9:11, sukah represents the “house and tabernacle of David (dawid – love), which has fallen but will be raised up and rebuilt.” Home is to family as the Covenant is to relationship.
The concept of a “temporary home and tabernacle” is also conveyed in Second Samuel 11:11: “The Ark (of the Covenant), Yisra’el (those who strive with God), and Yahuwdah (those who are related to Yah) are staying and abiding in temporary tabernacles, homes, and shelters.”
Literally, sukah depicts a “temporary encampment of tents.” The party lasts seven days each year and foreshadows the celebration of the Millennial Sabbath. And while seven days and a thousand years represent a considerable duration of time, both are fleeting when compared to eternity.
Spiritually, the “sheltered dwelling place” is provided by the Set Apart Spirit. Her Garment of Light is our protection, our Tabernacle, or covering, and our shelter. It is the only tent which equips us to campout with Yah. It is why Yowm Kippurym summons us to “come into the presence of our adoptive mother who enlightens and elevates.” It is also why God warns those who ignore this summons that their souls will be annihilated.
“The first day is set apart (qodesh – separating and cleansing), called out for reading and reciting (miqra’ – a summons and assembly for calling people out, for reading and reciting, and for explaining the basic core message).” (Leviticus 23:35)
By using the word, miqra’, Yahweh has explained the purpose of His festival feasts. They are times to gather together as a family and read and recite the Word so that we understand it and know its Author better.
Although miqra’ is a richer and deeper term than its Greek counterpart, ekklesia (the word errantly rendered “church”), at their core, both words mean “called out.” The miqra’ beget the ekklesia. The similarity of these Old and Renewed Covenant foundational terms, connects them as one, while also “explaining the basic core message.” But it is a message which is completely lost when the Word is carelessly and errantly rendered and when religions ignore Yah’s instructions and replace them with Babylon’s holidays.
By saying that the miqra’ are qodesh/set apart, Yahweh is associating these meetings with the work of the qodesh ruach, or Set Apart Spirit. He is conveying the message that we are called out of the world and set apart unto Yahweh by way of our Spiritual Mother.
Central to that message is that we cannot earn our salvation. “You shall not (lo’) do (‘asah – perform, fashion, create, produce, assign, or profit from) any (kol) of the work (‘abodah) of the heavenly messenger (mala’kah – service of God’s representative).” (Leviticus 23:35) ‘Abodah means “work, labor, task, job, or duty.” It is usually translated “ordinary” in English bibles because mala’kah is always rendered “work.” However, mala’kah is based upon, and considered the same as, mal’ak, meaning “heavenly messenger and divine representative.” As such, mal’ak is usually translated “angel” in English bibles. So, to keep from looking foolish and rendering the passage “You shall not do any work work,” or “work angel,” translators came up with: “ordinary work.”
While it’s true that we shouldn’t do our ordinary jobs on this set apart out calling, the spiritual message Yahweh communicated goes well beyond this. Eternal life, camping out forever with Him, is His gift to us. We cannot achieve it on our own, earn it, or pay for it. And we shouldn’t be about the task of trying to personally profit from it as religious clerics are wont to do.
It is a feast: “For seven (seba’) days approach and come near (qarab – present oneself and appear before, joining closely together in the midst of) the adoptive mother who enlightens and elevates (‘iseh /‘isah) unto (la – toward, into, on behalf of, according to) Yahuweh.” (Leviticus 23:27) These seven days are symbolic of the Millennial Sabbath.
To qarab is to “draw near, to approach and enter into something; it is to be present in the midst of a meeting or gathering.” In this situation, it is with Yah and His family. To qarab is “to be present with someone”—the Set Apart Spirit in this case. Qarab speaks of our “inward nature and physical existence, of our seat of life, responding to a summons and making a declaration after engaging in careful thought.” Qarab is the operative word of the sixth Miqra—Yowm Kippurym.
Speaking of the Day of Reconciliations, pages three through eight of the “Kippurym” chapter were dedicated to the meaning of ‘iseh /‘isah, so there is no reason to replicate that effort here. Suffice it to say that Sukah is a seven-day celebration of life conducted in the presence of Yahweh by way of the Set Apart Spirit.
Then, bringing it all together…“On the eighth (shemini – from shemen, meaning oil, a metaphor for the Spirit) day, there exists (hayah – was, is, and will be) a set apart (qodesh – separating and cleansing), called out assembly for reading and reciting (miqra’ – a summons for calling people out, for reading and reciting, and for explaining the basic core message) on your behalf (la ‘atem – concerning you) to answer the summons, present yourself and appear before (qarab – approach and come near) the adoptive mother who enlightens and elevates (‘iseh /‘isah) unto (la – toward, into, on behalf of, according to) Yahuweh.” (Leviticus 23:36) The eighth day represents eternity—a condition which follows the Millennial Sabbath. They only way to get there is to come into the presence of our Spiritual Mother and be born anew from above.
There is but one “Her” pertaining to God, and She is the Set Apart Spirit, our Spiritual Mother. “Her (hiw’) joyous assembly of people (‘asarah – participants in the festive celebration and party goers), do not (lo’) do (‘asah – perform, fashion, create, produce, assign, or profit from) any (kol) of the work (‘abodah – labor, task, job, or duty) of the heavenly messenger (mala’kah – service of God’s representative).” (Leviticus 23:36) Confirmation is a good thing. As often as Yahweh has repeated His message, it’s a wonder so many corrupt it and so few comprehend it.
Yahweh personally did all of the work required for our salvation. We cannot add to what He has done. We cannot replicate it on our own. We should not try. And while we are called to be the beneficiaries of His gift, we aren’t to profit from it in the monetary sense. The concept of a paid clergy, of people who make their living being religious, is Babylonian, not Scriptural.
For example, you are free to invest in the Yada Yahweh ministry, enabling us to share more information with more people. But I am not free to use your contribution to pay any of my personal bills.
As our Heavenly Father, Yahweh is the head of our household. In that light, in order for His family to function properly, He has scheduled regular meetings which He expects us to attend. “These are Yahuweh’s specific appointed meetings and designated times (mow’ed – assemblies set by the authority for a particular purpose, as a sign and signal)…” (Leviticus 23:37)
Mow’ed is from ya’ad, meaning “to schedule a meeting, fixing the time to assemble, meet, and be betrothed.” A mow’ed is not unlike a meeting scheduled with the Boss, who in this case is our Heavenly Father, Spiritual Mother, Savior, Creator, and God. The least we can do is show up.
So why is it that 99.9999% of Christians, of those who claim to be saved, don’t show up? Why do they ignore each and every summons? Worse, why do 99.9999% of Orthodox Christians, Catholics, Protestants, and Evangelicals, meet instead on Satan’s most important Babylonian festivals: Easter and Christmas? How does one justify or explain this?
“These are Yahuweh’s specific appointed meetings and designated times (mow’ed – assemblies set by the authority for a particular purpose, as a sign and signal) which relationally (‘asher), you shall announce (qara’ – are invited to and shall proclaim) as set apart Miqra’ (called-out assemblies) to answer the summons and present oneself, appearing before (qarab) the adoptive mother who enlightens and elevates (‘iseh /‘isah) unto (la – toward, into, on behalf of, according to) Yahuweh. They are a gift (minhah – present, something offered without compensation) which elevates (‘olah – raises up by way of an acceptable sacrifice on an altar, an offering which uplifts), a reconciling sacrifice (zebah – a substitute killed and presented for atonement and forgiveness), and a pouring out (nesek – anointing and immersing in) the Word (dabar), day by day (yowm bayomow).” (Leviticus 23:37)
Yahweh has established a specific meeting schedule. He has conveyed the time He wants us to show up. He has told us to tell others about them so that they also benefit from them. He has told us what to do when we arrive. He has told us that the Miqra’ are a gift—something He has given to us without compensation. He has said that this gift will reconcile our relationship with Him and cause us to rise up into His presence. He has even shared that the mechanism behind this result is an atoning sacrifice made on our behalf. It is “a pouring out of the Word, who is God, who became flesh, and tabernacled with us. And to those who received Him, He gave the right to be the children of God, born of God.”
In this passage, it’s useful to recognize that ‘olah also means “injustice and iniquity.” This suggests that the purpose of the Miqra’ meetings is to vindicate us, ransoming mankind from this condition. ‘Olah is associated with a “burnt offering” throughout Scripture because fire is the symbol of judgment, and the resulting smoke rises up to heaven.
Since most every English translation renders the previous passage very differently than I have it here, I feel compelled to share the most prevalent alternate view. “These are the appointed times of the LORD which you shall proclaim as holy convocations, to present offerings by fire to the LORD—burnt offerings and grain offerings, sacrifices and libations, each day’s matter on its own day.” Partly wrong, and partly an unsubstantiated stretch, in my opinion, this rendition misses the point. That does not mean however, that I am completely right or that they are completely wrong. The reason that I have chosen to make the words Yah selected available to you within the context of my amplified translations so that you can look them up and study them yourself.
Speaking of His seven Miqra’, the significance of the special Sabbaths associated with them, and the symbolic sacrifices designated in the presentation of them, we find a confirmation of their primary purpose: “In addition to (min la bad) Yahuweh’s Sabbaths (sabat – seventh day to cease work, regaling and revering God), besides (min la bad) your gifts (mattanah – something given for the good of a relationship), and in addition to (min la bad) all (kol) your vows (nadar/neder – promises), as part of (min la bad – out of or from) your freedom of choice (nadabah –freewill), relationally (‘asher) turn over control (natan – give, deliver, assign, dedicate, and entrust yourself) to (la) Yahuweh.” (Leviticus 23:38)
Nadabah is a word we have not seen before. It means “to be free, to have choice, and to act in a manner which is voluntary.” It implies that the “motivation must be of one’s own accord.” God is speaking of “freewill”—the most valuable, incontrovertible (undeniable and unassailable), life-altering gift bestowed upon mankind. Yahweh is asking us to trust Him with our very lives, to freely choose to rely on Him for our salvation, to see the Miqra’ and Sabbath as a referendum on choice.
There is nothing more liberating than freely turning over control to Yahweh. It is a miracle to witness Him fashion goodness from flawed material. Rather than struggling blindly, all the lights are turned on. Rather than sputtering, we function as Yahweh’s Tabernacle.
Based upon a different interpretation of this passage, there are those who would disagree, suggesting that Yahweh wants us to give more than just observing the Sabbath, more than the sacrificial gifts designated in the Miqra’, more even than freewill offerings. But yet the central message of Scripture conveys the idea that all God wants of us is for us to choose Him. He wants us to know Him, to revere Him sufficiently to prioritize our relationship with Him, to listen to and heed His advice, to walk with Him, to converse with Him, to trust Him, and to rely on Him. And as a result of these things, He wants us to love Him as our Father. This in turn should compel us to expose and condemn lies which lead others away from our Heavenly Father while simultaneously witnessing to the truth.
God doesn’t want our sacrifices. He Himself was the sacrifice. Even when the Miqra’ designate an offering, the beneficiary consumes the good parts and sends the inedible portions God’s way. Yahweh doesn’t need anything from us but He does covet our love.
“Indeed (‘ak – nevertheless and surely), on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have harvested (‘asap – gathered in) your yield (tabu’ah – produce, crops, gain, grain, and fruit) from the Land (‘erets), you shall celebrate (chag) the festival feast (hag) of Yahuweh for seven days. On the first day there shall be a time for resting and reflection (sabbaton) and on the eighth day a Sabbath (sabbaton).” (Leviticus 23:39) Sukah is an ingathering. It is a celebration. Sukah is a time for restful reflection.
Everything in the following list is symbolic. Each is of considerable value to us spiritually, but insignificant economically. “And you shall grasp hold of (laqah – receive and obtain, acquire) on the first day the fruit (pari – harvest) of the tree (‘es – wooden timber or upright pillar used for hanging a sacrificial victim), the glorious adornment of (hadar – most majestic, honored, and splendorous embellishment and beautification) of the fronds (kipah – shoots or branches [symbolic of the Spirit and Messiyah]) of the palm (tamar), the branch (‘anap – covering [symbolic of the Messiyah & Spirit]) of leafy shade (‘abot – heavily foliaged canopy [symbolic of the Spirit]) trees (‘es), and river (nahal [symbolic of the Spirit]) willow shoots (‘arabah [symbolic of the Messiyah]).” (Leviticus 23:40)
The “first day fruit harvest” during the fall, speaks of the ingathering of souls depicted in the Miqra of Taruw’ah. It is facilitated by Yahushua’s sacrifice on the “tree, the upright pole and death stake” upon which He “was hung.”
Since one would not normally describe “palm fronds” as being “glorious adornments, or majestic, honored, and splendorous embellishments for beautification,” God is using a metaphor to reveal the nature of the Set Apart Spirit’s Garment of Light. In this region and time, palm fronds were used as the roof covering of homes, sheltering the family inside from the sun and storms.
To this point, hadar speaks of an adornment or garment which elevates one’s status, ascribing high value to them, making them beautiful in appearance, even majestic and glorious.” Moreover, the entire point of Yowm Kippurym and the essence of Sukah is to “come into the presence of the adoptive mother who elevates,” the Set Apart Spirit.
The “branch of the tree,” another Messianic symbol, is singular because while the Spirit adorns many, there is only one Savior. But you’ll notice in this case that “the branch” is from “a leafy shade, heavily foliaged canopy tree.” The Savior and Spirit are one in the same. That is the message of John 14, in which Yahushua says that the Father, Savior, and Spirit are one.
The “river willow shoots” are symbolic of both the prediction that the Messiah will be a “tender shoot” (arrive as a child), and also of living waters, a Spiritual metaphor based upon the life sustaining and cleansing nature of water. Further, all of this emphasis on “trees” is specifically tied to Sakah, the Miqra’ dedicated to living under Yahweh’s shelter, in His Tent and Tabernacle, and under his protection.
The completion of the 40th verse of Leviticus 23 defines eternity. It explains the reason we were created, the purpose of all seven Miqra’. It conveys the result of Yahweh’s plan of salvation, and what we can expect during the Millennial Sabbath on Earth and life in heaven beyond. “Rejoice and be glad (samah – be happy and express your joy, be merry and party, flourish, take pleasure in, and celebrate) in the presence (paneh) of Yahuweh your God (‘elohym) for seven days.”
There is a “high, proud, exalting, almost arrogant” tone to samah. Its Akkadian root, samahu, means “to be stately, to attain extraordinary beauty and stature, to flourish, to be high, even proud.” Further, it is about pleasure. Other samah synonyms include: “be elated, be glad, be cheerful, leap for joy, and delight in the overall circumstance.”
That’s important for many reasons. First, by way of the Spirit’s adornment, we are elevated, becoming considerably more like God. Our flawed, temporal bodies are replaced with extraordinarily beautiful and stately spiritual ones, enabling us to flourish eternally in Yahweh’s presence.
Second, God likes to party. Having fun together is the entire point—the purpose of the universe and of mankind. The Miqra’ of Tabernacles foretells of a time on Earth during the Millennial Sabbath and eternity in heaven beyond, in which we will “rejoice and be glad, celebrating the presence of Yahweh.” It will be a “very pleasurable experience, a joyous party, a time of great happiness.”
Third, it’s okay to be proud, so long as our pride comes from knowing that we are Yahweh’s children. That is indeed something to be proud of. Moreover, God wants us to relate to Him in the context of friendship and family, relaxing and having a good time. He does not want us down on our knees, fearing Him or worshiping Him. Other than love, there is no better word to describe what to expect in heaven, and the purpose of the relationship, than samah.
So why “seven days,” you ask? And why is there an “eighth day?” Let’s finish the passage and I’ll explain. Remember, each Miqra’ serves as a prophetic depiction of the unfolding of the plan of salvation and as a spiritual metaphor to explain the process. “Celebrate (chagag) it as a festival feast (chag) with (la) Yahuweh seven (seba’) days (yowm) in (ba – during) the (ha) year (sanah – repeatedly, so as to be altered and changed). It is a clearly communicated prescription of what you should do (huqqah – a decree, statute, and ordinance designed to allocate a share, portion, or allotment of something) eternally (‘olam – forever, throughout all time) in (la) your (‘atem) homes (dor – dwelling places and temporary tent encampments, also generations). Celebrate it (chagag – as a festival feast) in (ba) the (ha) seventh (sabi’i) month (hodes – time of renewal).” (Leviticus 23:41)
Yahweh’s plan for mankind is based upon six, being the number of man, plus one, being the number of God, equaling perfection—seven. Sukah is the seventh and final phase of the plan. Its fulfillment begins at the end of man’s sixth millennia and concludes at the culmination of the seventh. Salvation is a seven-step process, beginning with Passover and ending with Tabernacles, each played out at the appropriate time. By having us camp out with Him for seven days, we draw understanding from Genesis one, from the Sabbath, and from the seven Miqra’, to better understand Yah’s comprehensive solution and schedule.
The eighth day was added because the end of the Millennial Sabbath is not the end of time, our lives, or of camping out with God. Beginning on the eighth day, Yahweh will obliterate the entire universe and create a new one in our presence—a perfect one in which we get to live with Him, celebrating eternity. It is a new beginning—one without an adversary or a schedule.
The message is that we are being invited to campout with the Creator of the universe. It’s going to be a great party. There will be lots of exploring, long and deep conversations, personal sharing, and plenty of fun. It is the never ending conclusion to the greatest story ever told.
There are three important insights in what follows. First, the reason God asked us to “live in tents with Him” is to tangibly demonstrate the purpose of His plan to all future generations and households.
Second, only “native born” Yisra’elites are being asked to actually pitch and live in tents. The rest of us are called to do it symbolically.
Third, just as Yahweh freed Yahuwdym from the bondage of slavery and works in Egypt, He is freeing all of us from the bondage of sin and of work’s-based salvation schemes. “You shall live in (yasab – inhabit and dwell in) shelters, tents, booths, and tabernacles (sukah – temporary homes which provide cover and protection) for seven (seba’) days (yowm). All (kol) native (ezrah) Yisra’elites shall dwell (yasab) in (ba) the (ha) shelters, tents, booths, and tabernacles (sukah – temporary homes which provide cover and protection) so that (ma’an – for the intent, purpose, reason, and sake that in the end) your households and generations (dor – families and descendants) will know relationally (yada’ – be aware of and understand, be acquainted with and respect, reveal, make known, and teach) the physical symbolism of (kiy – branding associated with ownership and truth connected with) Me having the children (ben) of Yisra’el live in (yasab) shelters, tents, booths, and tabernacles (sukah – temporary homes which provide cover and protection) when I brought (yasa’ - lead) them out (min) of the land (‘erets – realm or country) of Egypt (misrayim – the crucible of emotional anguish and distress).” (Leviticus 23:42-43)
The Children of Yisra’el are God’s witnesses and messengers—the implement of Yah’s revelation. Through them we come to know our Creator and Redeemer.
Yahuwdym are also a control group in the scientific experiment called life. They were set apart from other people to demonstrate the benefit of having a relationship with God and the consequence of rejecting that covenant.
Yahweh signs off with this direct...
