In this article, I will present how there is a prophecy in the holy feast of Sukkot that is referenced by Eashoa (Jesus in Aramaic, or Y’shua, Aramaic as well) in Matthew 23 & 24 about the Gathering (Gk. Episunagoge) of the elect to His marriage. There will be joy (simchat) and a dance the day after the Gathering, or the Blessed Hope. On the day of the Gathering, those who went to sleep in the Lord will be raised to their Resurrection bodies. Those who will be alive on earth will rise to meet the Lord in the air, and all the saints who received their new Resurrection bodies, in our own new Resurrection bodies.
If your loved ones passed to glory, you may be dancing with them in paradise.
1 Thessalonians 4
This is what Paul spoke of in the mystery that took only the twinkling of an eye.
1 Corinthians 15
All dates indicated to begin at sundown. The first full day is on the following the first date in Hebrew expression.
Sukkot Day 1 – October 13, 2019
Hoshanah Rabbah – October 19, 2019
Sh’mini Atzeret – October 20, 2019
The Feast Of Tabernacles
The feast of Sukkot lasts for seven days. When the first day ends, it ends on Columbus Day October 14 2019. But the next feast called Sh’mini immediately follows the seventh day. This is the extra “1” day. This gives America a public holiday and a 3 day weekend. Sh’mini Atzeret shall be observed at sundown on October 20.
Adonai wants to see what America will do for His great feast, Sukkot. In Zechariah 14, it is prophesied that Sukkot will be the only holy feast that will be mandated to the Gentiles the world over. Those who refuse to worship King Y’shua will fail in their crops and stock markets. It is a choice.
And if knew if this year were the last Sukkot before the return of Y’shua, what would the children of YH do to proclaim His return?
We must not hit the cruise control switch.
Listen to the Ruwach Adonai.
33And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
34Speak 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.
35On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
36Seven 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.
37These 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:
38Beside 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.
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 sabbath.
40And 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.
41And 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.
42Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:
43That 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.
44And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD.
There is no other God like our Adonai who commands His people to exhibit and give joy in a feast. Go and tell someone. Visit the hospitals and the hospices to speak Y’shua to those who are lonely and need hope.
The seventh day of Sukkot is called in Orthodox Jewish communities Hoshana Rabbah, and is considered among observant Jews the final day of the divine “judgment” in which the fate of the new year is determined. Therefore among mentschen, when on Yom Kippur God closes the Book of Life and seals the names, then on Hoshana Rabbah, He shall judge the outcome.
In 2019, Hoshana Rabbah shall be from sundown on the end of the shabbat on Saturday October 19, 2019. For it is the last day of the seven day feast.
However, Y’shua dropped a hint of His kingdom.
For I tell you that you will not see Me again until you say, ’Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.’”
Y’shua was referring to Hoshana Rabbah. Observers among the Jews will be waving palms and crying Barukt haba b’shem Adonai ( “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” ). It is then that He promises He will be SEEN.
That means the Gathering of the elect to the wedding.
30At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. 31And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
Sh’mini Atzeret is the 8th day of celebration. Atzeret means “holding back from work”. So right after the Jews dwell in make shift tents symbolically for a week, the following day is a celebration and a dance, taking a day off. It is considered a yom tov, literally a good day. Among the mentschen it means a day off. In the state of Israel, people do take a day off to observe Sh’mini. There are many meals to be taken outdoors.
Lamps are also lit. This motif to us messianics means Y’shua, the True Light. Maybe one day the Judaica will come to understand the meaning of what was done for thousands of years.
In 2019, it follows Sukkot on the eighth day of Sukkot.
It will dovetail up to Sukkot at sundown on October 20, 2019.
Shemini Atzeret is also known as Simchat Torah. It is a time of unbridled joy, Jewish pride, and unity. Simchat Torah means the joy of the Torah. The first activity among Jewish gatherings is called Hakafot, a dance of joy for the Torah. We know who the Torah in the flesh is.
Among mentschen, this is how to observe Hakafot (הקפות plural); Hakafah (הקפה singular)—meaning “[to] circle” or “going around” in Hebrew. The going around in circles is a Jewish Minhag in which people walk or dance around the Torah the scroll that is placed in the center of the reading table. The year of Torah reading is reset of this day to Beresheet.
The custom also is the marking of the rainy season. Also, observers recite the Yizkor prayer commemorating the dearly departed. The embedded prophecy of this remembrance is in the sayings of the New Covenant. The dearly departed who had righteousness in Adonai shall be raised on the day of resurrection.
Will you dance for Y’shua? Will you dance with Y’shua?
The day after the Gathering of the elect, will you think that we will be dancing for the Torah, our Lord in the glorified flesh at His wedding?
Are they such things as coincidences in Yiddish?
