Zech 14: 16 Merry Tabernacles

Zec 14:16And it shall come to pass, [that]
every one that is left of all the nations
which came against Jerusalem shall
even go up from year to year to worship
the King, the LORD of hosts, and to
keep the feast of tabernacles.

The war is over and Christ takes His throne.
It is done.

It is commanded to commemorate this
new kingdom with the celebration of
one of the most joyous of the Old Testament
ceremonies of Tabernacles:

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 the LORD.

Lev 23:35
On the first day [shall be] an holy
convocation: ye shall do no servile
work [therein].

Lev 23:36
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].

Lev 23:37
These [are] the feasts of the LORD,
which ye shall proclaim [to be] holy
convocations, to offer an offering
made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt
offering, and a meat offering, a
sacrifice, and drink offerings, every
thing upon his day:

Lev 23:38
Beside the Sabbaths of the LORD,
and beside your gifts, and beside
all your vows, and beside all your
freewill offerings, which ye give
unto the LORD.

Lev 23:39Also 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

Lev 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 days.

Lev 23:41
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.

Lev 23:42
Ye shall dwell in booths seven days;
all that are Israelites born shall
dwell in booths:

Lev 23:43
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] the LORD your God.

Lev 23:44And Moses declared unto the
children of Israel the feasts of
the LORD.

Christ is the FULFILLMENT of the LAW,
NOT the end of it.

There is no provision to make up his birthdate
to be superimposed over the abominations of
the Canaanites, which continually provoked
the LORD God all the years that He struggled
with the nation of Israel, only to deliver Christ
to the Nations for them to make up days that
fit in with their carnal culture.

Anyone who celebrates Christmas and Ishtar/Easter
is in jeopardy of losing their salvation. It's THAT

Just because your pastor says it's okay is
NOT an excuse. Barak Obama's excuse
for staying in an ungodly congregation
with a demonic pastor was that he was
married there, and most of the time, he
was okay. IT IS NOT OKAY!

We need to follow the SPIRIT of TRUTH.
Here, in the prophetic verse proclaiming
the new kingdom of God in Jesus Christ,
Tabernacles replaces the pagan festival
days. It is the one commemoration that
is commanded to continue for the 1000
years on Earth that we will spend in the
presence of the LORD.

These are the sanctified days of the
Bible, not Nimrod's pagan decadent
winter festival of indulgences and lusts,
which the Roman's delicately renamed
Christmas to corrupt the faithful and
tempt God.

Deu 16:12
And thou shalt remember that
thou wast a bondman in Egypt:
and thou shalt observe and do
these statutes.

Deu 16:13Thou shalt observe the feast of
tabernacles seven days, after
that thou hast gathered in thy
corn and thy wine:

Deu 16:14
And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast,
thou, and thy son, and thy daughter,
and thy manservant, and thy
maidservant, and the Levite, the
stranger, and the fatherless, and
the widow, that [are] within thy gates.

Deu 16:15
Seven days shalt thou keep a
solemn feast unto the LORD thy
God in the place which the LORD
shall choose: because the LORD
thy God shall bless thee in all thine
increase, and in all the works of
thine hands, therefore thou shalt
surely rejoice.

Seven days- the week, also symbolizes the time
on Earth with the holy covenant, from Adam
to the 2nd Coming of Christ. "A day is as a
thousand years to the LORD" and the Seventh
Day is going to begin in our era.

Deu 16:16
Three times in a year shall all
thy males appear before the
LORD thy God in the place which
he shall choose; in the feast of
unleavened bread, and in the feast
of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles:
and they shall not appear before
the LORD empty:

Deu 16:19
Thou shalt not wrest judgment;
thou shalt not respect persons,
neither take a gift: for a gift doth
blind the eyes of the wise, and
pervert the words of the righteous

Deu 16:20
That which is altogether just shalt
thou follow, that thou mayest live,
and inherit the land which the
LORD thy God giveth thee.

Deu 16:21Thou shalt not plant thee a grove
of any trees near unto the altar
of the LORD thy God, which thou
shalt make thee.

Deu 16:22
Neither shalt thou set thee up
[any] image; which the LORD thy
God hateth.

Because of spiritual adultery, Israel was driven
out of the Holy Land, and the grove of trees
was in deference to their pagan beliefs and
idolatrous religion. This is echoed exquisitely
in Christmas. It is an abomination that
makes desolate.

This is what Solomon did when he was
righteous and obeyed the commandments
and LAW:

2Ch 8:12Then Solomon offered burnt
offerings unto the LORD on the
altar of the LORD, which he had
built before the porch,

2Ch 8:13
Even after a certain rate
every day, offering according
to the commandment of Moses,
on the sabbaths, and on the
new moons, and on the solemn
feasts, three times in the year,
[even] in the feast of unleavened
bread, and in the feast of weeks,
and in the feast of tabernacles.

2Ch 8:14
And he appointed, according to
the order of David his father, the
courses of the priests to their
service, and the Levites to their
charges, to praise and minister
before the priests, as the duty
of every day required: the porters
also by their courses at every gate:
for so had David the man of God

2Ch 8:15
And they departed not from
the commandment of the king
unto the priests and Levites
concerning any matter, or
concerning the treasures.

The three celebrations mentioned are the only
in-gatherings sanctioned, beside the HOLY
Sabbaths, and rituals for New Moons.

The 3 holy ingatherings were : Passover,
Pentecost, and Tabernacles.

Tabernacles represents Firstfruits
which corresponds with Christ's
birth as a human being, and then
as the new Adam. Pentecost or weeks
was when the Holy Spirit was given
to the Apostles to preach the risen
Christ. Passover is the Holy Lamb of
God, who takes away our sin, and by
whose blood we are passed over from
the angel of death. He leads us in
paths of righteousness through the
wilderness of this spiritual Egypt and
we pass over the King's Highway,
with expectations that at our sojourn's
end is Paradise in New Jerusalem.

These are the LORD's promises in the
Old and New Testament, and Tabernacles
is the celebration of overcoming human history,
the Antichrist and the devil.

Because the ancient Israelites did not
cherish the LAW or the commandments,
and preferred the gods of the Babylonians,
which included the celebration of what
we call Christmas and Ishtar, the LORD
let the Babylonians win victory and take
them captives to their land where they
could worship their gods as slaves.

70 years, after a generation passed,
because of the righteousness of Daniel
who influenced the Persian kings, Darius
and Cyrus, the Jews were aided in returning
to Israel. The congregation who returned
were only a remnant, since the vast
majority of immigrants to Babylon
preferred living there. They loved it
there. The remnant who returned
included some ancestors of Jesus
Christ, including Zorababel the
bloodline of David, now only a
governor, not king. The High Priest
was Yeshua. They committed themselves
to following the commandments, and
LAW, and it is to be noted that
MOST important to them was to
establish again the holy convocation
days of the three holy ingatherings
mentioned in the LAW:

Ezr 3:1And when the seventh month
was come, and the children of
Israel [were] in the cities, the
people gathered themselves
together as one man to Jerusalem.

Ezr 3:2
Then stood up Jeshua the son
of Jozadak, and his brethren the
priests, and Zerubbabel the son
of Shealtiel, and his brethren, and
builded the altar of the God of Israel,
to offer burnt offerings thereon, as
[it is] written in the law of Moses
the man of God.

Ezr 3:3
And they set the altar upon his
bases; for fear [was] upon them
because of the people of those
countries: and they offered burnt
offerings thereon unto the LORD,
[even] burnt offerings morning and

Ezr 3:4
They kept also the feast of tabernacles,
as [it is] written, and [offered] the
daily burnt offerings by number,
according to the custom, as the duty
of every day required;

Ezr 3:5
And afterward [offered] the continual
burnt offering, both of the new moons,
and of all the set feasts of the LORD
that were consecrated, and of every
one that willingly offered a freewill
offering unto the LORD.

Ezr 3:6
From the first day of the seventh
month began they to offer burnt
offerings unto the LORD. But the
foundation of the temple of the
LORD was not [yet] laid.

Ezr 3:7
They gave money also unto the
masons, and to the carpenters;
and meat, and drink, and oil,
unto them of Zidon, and to them
of Tyre, to bring cedar trees from
Lebanon to the sea of Joppa,
according to the grant that they
had of Cyrus king of Persia.

The prophet Hosea, was given the duty to
marry a whore, to enact what God is married
to in Israel. Far from stoning her or punishing
her, Hosea is given the task of ministering to
her and pleading with her to return to a
LAWFUL marriage and not play the harlot.

This is because Israel, and the so-called
people who were called to follow the LORD
were always whoring over the pagan religions
jealous of their carnal ceremonies and
rites. YHWH makes it CLEAR that part of
this adultery involves not adhering to the
few little days of commemoration that
HE maps out for them. Instead, they
preferred their version of Christmas and
Ishtar because they were lusty, carnal
and indulgent celebrations.

So, here in Hosea, when God vows to
reform his wife, the joy of Tabernacles
is cited from the LAW:

Hsa 12:9And I [that am] the LORD thy
God from the land of Egypt
will yet make thee to dwell in
tabernacles, as in the days of
the solemn feast.

In the Gospel of John, it states that around
the time of Tabernacles, in the fall, the Jews
were already anxious to kill him. He
would not accompany the Apostles to
Jerusalem during Tabernacles, because
it was not prophecy for him to die then,
but, to be the LAMB of GOD.

However, he told the Apostles to go to
Jerusalem, and partake of the Feast of

The fact that Christ endorses Tabernacles,
Passover and Chanukah comdemns us
for not observing them, choosing instead
pagan trees and a blasphemous pagan
god which is anathema and forbidden,
mimicking the greatest sin of children
of Israel. We have no excuse to behave
the way we do, other than traditions
of men, obstinancy and blindness.

Jhn 7:1After these things Jesus walked
in Galilee: for he would not walk
in Jewry, because the Jews sought
to kill him.
Jhn 7:2
Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles
was at hand.

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

Jhn 7:8
Go ye up unto this feast: I go not
up yet unto this feast; for my time
is not yet full come.

Christ went up anyway, and taught in
the Temple. On the last day, the solemn
day of worship, he told them:

Jhn 7:37In the last day, that great [day]
of the feast, Jesus stood and cried,
saying, If any man thirst, let him
come unto me, and drink.

Jhn 7:38
He that believeth on me, as the
scripture hath said, out of his belly
shall flow rivers of living water.

Jhn 7:39
(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.)

Yes indeed. I think that TABERNACLES is
very special, yet it is wholly missing from
our modern religion, and we cannot
justify why that is, other than we are
not in possession of the religion of
Jesus Christ and the Apostles, but
of the hybrid bastard pagan religion
that plagued the Jews in Israel, who
constantly tempted God with their
combining pagan deities and days
with the LAW. We are doing the
same thing.

There will be millions of survivors throughout
the world. Not everyone will perish, even in
the wake of radiation. Once Christ mediates,
the nations who fought against Israel will
be given a blank slate. It is a new day.
They are forgiven, and their survivors
will receive healing from the leaves of
the Tree of Life:

Rev 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on \
either side of the river, [was there] the tree of life,
which bare twelve [manner of] fruits, [and] yielded
her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree
[were] for the healing of the nations.

The NEW New Covenant has one caveat
for the formerly hostile world: Every land
must send delegates to participate in the
Feast of Tabernacle, and any country
who defers will be cursed.

This passage is either glossed over, or
misunderstood (in my opinion.) I think
the emphasis is on Feast of Tabernacles
for many reasons, but, the most obvious
one for me is that for 2 Centuries of
Christianity, the churches have failed
to honor the Jewish convocations and
Sabbaths. Instead, they chose to retain
their beloved pagan festival days, in
honor of the former gods of fertility,
war and omnipotence, originally derived
from the Canaanite deities of Sargon I
or Nimrod who morphed into the Osiris/
and goddess religion in its' many forms
throughout the world.

This conglomeration of competing deities
may as well be lumped together, and it
is, as far as YHWH is concerned. It is
called "sin" and "jealousy." It is referred
to as spiritual harlotry and adultery.
The male deities are lumped into a
conterfeit god categort called "Ba'al'
which translated means "master."
The Goddess takes many names and
forms, but, is generally similar from
one region to the next, usually blessing
endeavors of crop fertility, human
fertility, war and wisdom.

The original days of commemoration
coincided with the Winter Solstice,
because of the ancient's strong belief
in the stars and their mysticism.

In the original celebrations of the
Winter Solstice, slaves traded places
with their masters for a day, children
got gifts, an orgy of eating, sexual
indulgences and other carnal indulgences
were encouraged to ease their hard lives.
It gave them something to look forward
to in the climates where winter was
so forlorn and food scarce, and where
suffering took it's harshest form.
This took their minds off of their
daily lot in lives, and kept the slaves
content because for at least one day,
they could live like their masters.

Very little changed in the way Christmas
was celebrated, only other than being
called "Saturnalia" or "festival of Persephone"
etc, it was given Christ and Mary's personages.
The tree with decoration is straight from the
pagans, and so are the other aspects of
gift-giving and lavish indulgence.

WHen you consider the character and
witness of Christ, it is absurd to believe
he would appreciate being represented
by this carnal feast of excess and material
wastefulness. In this season, he gave
his own witness of observing the
Festival of Lights, (or the Feast of
Dedication) or Hanukkah, as learned in the
Gospel of John:

Jhn 10:22And it was at Jerusalem the feast
of the dedication, and it was winter.

Jhn 10:23
And Jesus walked in the temple
in Solomon's porch.

Many pastors and Christian teachers would
have us believe that the Jewish observances
were done away with, or unnecessary to
continue. They will justify Easter/Ishtar
and Christmas until they turn blue, failing
to receive instruction that there is no place
EVER for combining pagan ceremonies and
deities into Judaism. It is forbidden forever.

Christ observed PASSOVER, and so did the
Apostles. When Easter was mentioned in
Acts, it was as a frame of cultural reference,
not meant to combine the fertility rites
of Ishtar/Isis and indoctrinate and corrupt
children who enjoy brightly colored eggs
and baby bunnies.

Watering down Christianity, and creating
mythologies has done more to harm
Christianity than all the oppressors and
demons combined. Christmas and Ishtar
were Satan's most cunning coups.

In the Time to come, knowledge of Christ
will be universal, and the only feast that
is sanctioned is the Feast of Tabernacles.

Why is that?

I have some opening theories, which I've
written about before, but, bear witness.
Tabernacles is the HARVEST, and the
FIRSTFRUITS. Obviously, the surviving
population of the world will be the
firstfruits of humanity, under the
new dispensation, where disease
and our biological perfection is
restored to pre-fall. No longer do
we have the hybrid genes of the

Tabernacles is one of the truly
merry holidays, and in some ways,
it's considered the most sacred from
the ancient days. It lasted a full
WEEK, and it was the time of year
that could only be celebrated in
Jerusalem and environs, not in
more far-reaching areas.

On the eighth day, a solemn day
of worship commences. Every 7
years, the entire Book of the LAW
was read in all the ears of the people
of Israel.

When the Millennium commences,
it will be after the harvest of souls. The
survivors will be culled from all human
beings and worthy of living for 1000
years. We will have the LAW within
us. We believe that's true now, but,
when we do things like change the
Sabbath in the LAW, and change
days like Christ's birth, etc, we're
from Christ and salvation. We
have thrown away the grace of
God in the LAW by way of stomping
on the blood of CHrist. (In my opinion.)

The original Tabernacles was to
commemorate the victory over reaching
the Holy Land and occupying it, after
sojourning in the wilderness for 40 years,
after hundreds of years of living in
Egypt under hardships. This is very
parallel to our experience, living in
sinful and god-hating lands where
our worship is constrained by our
cultures, and the climate of tolerance
for religion and devotion to YHWH
and Jesus Christ is not very strong.

We may like to think of ourselves as
living in a Christian country, but,
religious people are mocked and
despised. The people who are admired
in this world are those like movie stars
and politicians, who are mostly
whore -mongers, liars, profligates and
even thieves. Religious people are
not very glamorous and most devout
people have to conceal their zeal to
avoid constant harassment and
(In my opinion...)

When we can finally live in a world
governed by Christ, the devotion of
loving Christ will be the norm. It will
be a cause to celebrate.

Tabernacles is in the Autumn, five
days following the New Year and
holiest celebration of Yom Kippur,
the Day of Atonement. I believe that
is when Christ was really born in

Mary and Joseph traveled to their
home city for the census. They would
never have traveled in the winter,
since it would cause them to freeze
to death before they got there... it
is cold in Israel in the winter, and it
even snows.

The Harvest and Day of Atonement
require a get together of families
and tribes, so the census was most
likely planned for the time when
Jews went to travel to their home
territories and tribes anyway.

Christ is our Atonement who takes
away the sin of the world. That is why
when Mary appeared in the synagogue
to dedicate him, those in Judah who
knew her, and her lineage believed
she gave birth to the long awaited
son of David, the Messiah.

So, ironically, requiring people to
acknowledge Christ on Tabernacles
could be a way to correct the horrendous
error of hundreds of years of rebelliously
giving his title to a satanic pagan god,
which was a satanic trick to begin with.

It corrects that error, and provides a
foundation for the new religion. In fact,
this is the only mentioned Sabbath and
feast day that refers to the Millennium.
