What is the Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot?

Sep 6, 2009 · Posted in Prophetic Feast Days

Some of you may be unfamiliar with Tabernacles or Booths (Hebrew: Sukkot). And if you have heard of it you may have the conception that it is a Jewish Holiday, as in only for the Jews. Therefore the first place to look in the Bible to find out about Tabernacles is Zechariah 14 where it dispels this notion and tells us about our future keeping it:

Zechariah 14:16-19 — 16 Then all the survivors from the nations that came against Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord of Hosts, and to celebrate the Festival of Booths. 17 Should any of the families of the earth not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of Hosts, rain will not fall on them. 18 And if the people of Egypt will not go up and enter, then rain will not fall on them; this will be the plague the Lord inflicts on the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Booths. 19 This will be the punishment of Egypt and all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Booths.

This passage above answers the common question on who the people in the Millennium that the saints rule are? We are told plainly that there will be those who survive Wormwood, the Great Tribulation, the mark of the beast and God’s wrath living in the Millennium. To be sure, it will be a fraction of the multiple billions today. We’re also told something else shocking: They will be keeping the festival of Sukkot under God’s government, the kingdom of God. This news is shocking to most Christians because they have been taught that the Torah is a curse or burdensome and “done away forever.” On the contrary, this Torah festival is coming back and is so important to God that he will enforce its observance. Why?

The purpose for this feast is the same purpose Hebrews describes for the sacrifices and by extension all the rituals of the Torah: to give us forgetful humans reminders of all aspects of God’s plan for us, including sin (Heb 10:1-4). Since we are not in the Millennium and able to keep the Feast properly in Jerusalem, we are therefore not required to do so just yet.

Did you know that Tabernacles itself as Ancient Israel kept it for centuries is a prophecy of the Millennium? (See my book for more on that). The feasting, joy and peace we are meant to experience during Sukkot pictures the 1000 year peaceful, prosperous and joyous reign of Christ and the saints. This at last will be the idea of utopia made reality.

Rapture May 13, 2006?

May 2, 2006 · Posted in Emails, Prophetic Feast Days

I’ve written you before. I think the Rapture is May 13, 2006, Saturday….not just because it is the anniversary of the birth of Israel in 1948, but
because the mid-trib & Jesus’ Return all fit. You see, the Millennium MUST start on a Nisan 1 (see Ezek. 45:18 and Ex. 12:2), which it does. When Jesus
returns, the earth will straighten, thus ‘losing’ 23 days (the present earth-tilt #)ending up at Nisan 1. If the Rapture is May 13 of this year, +2520 days ends up at April 4, 2013 and backs up to March 12, which is
Nisan 1. Add 30 days mourning to arrive at April 11, the day Jesus enters the Temple from Bozrah/Petra for the exact end of 2300 days beginning the day after the 8-day Temple Dedication (Hanukkah) in 2006, which is Dec. 24. With the twisted Catholic influence from Rome in cooperation with the E.U. Peace Pact with Israel, Dec. 24 would please both the E.U. and Israel incorporating ‘Christmas’ and Hanukkah.

We are dealing with 3 generations: 38.8 yrs from June 6, 1967 to Rosh, ’05 (14,000 days); 58 yrs 1948 to 2006 and 45.8 years from June 6, 1967 to Nisan 1, 2006 (mind you, 2013 will count as 2006 because the 10.5 years which are not counted (Jesus’ 3.5-yr ministry and the 7-yr trib). The remaining .5 are Rosh ’05 to Nisan 1, ’06 (which will be our Nisan 1, 2013). Remember too that in Matthew 1, the 42 generations from the call of Abraham in 1924 B.C. at age 70 to the Birth of Christ AVERAGE out to 45.8 years each. (A generation was of a different length when people lived into the hundreds). In other words, the avg. generation of Matt. 1 is 45.8 years and the yrs from June 6, 1967 to Nisan 1, 2013 is 45.8 years.

Realize too that 36 A.D. (really 34 A.D. because of the 2-yr calendar discrepancy from Creation) +1960 years is 1996, the end of all the awesome O.T. patterns AND 1924 (the call of Abraham) +1960 is 36 A.D.; SO, you have 1960 on each side of history. 1960 is not just a number, but 4 x 490 and 7 x 280. 2 x 1960 is 8 x 490 and 14 x 280. If you don’t know the significance of these numbers, then I cannot take the time to explain; surely you do.

1996, the end of all the O.T. patterns +7 yrs (COUNTED – because God must count the 7 years somewhere since the 7-yr WON’T be counted – Satan’s years) is 2003. Add 10.5 yrs to arrive at 2013.

SO, if all the numbers, dates and straightening of the earth are figured in, you have SIX MONTHS from Rosh ’05 to Nisan 1, ’2006,’ EXACTLY AS IT SHOULD BE. Read Grant Jeffrey’s account of the necessary 6-mth shift in the calendar for the Milennium on pg. 61 of ‘Armageddon, Appt. with Destiny.’

As the scenario pertains to the zodiac (God’s ‘story in the stars’),the mid-trib is Scorpio 1, the death sign; Return is 14th day (Deliverance) of Aries (Lamb – 8th sign); Jesus’ entrance into the Temple is Taurus 14 (angry bull to rule with a rod of iron) and the end of the trib is Cancer 1 (11th sign, 11 = judgment) the ‘grip of the crab’ = Messiah – over the earth.

Note too that there are exactly 1967 years from 36 A.D. to 2013. 1967 is a number that God wanted the whole world to notice since it is the date Jerusalem was reclaimed, exactly 2550 yrs past 583 B.C., Temple
Destruction.

All the above seems interesting to me…..No one else seems to care about it, but maybe you’ll glean something from it……J.H.

Thanks for writing again. I do glean something from every letter I receive–even if I cannot get past the first paragraph before too many assumptions are made that I cannot accept. For example, the Millennium starting in the 1st month (Nissan) as you assert, instead of in the 7th month when the Feast of Tabernacles which pictures the Sabbath Millennium falls, is a problem for me. I expect Tabernacles and the Millennium it pictures to be fulfilled on the very same day (just as the passover was).

Personally, I think most other people are not showing an interest in your rapture date because your thesis is so complicated and full of these assumptions that they simply cannot follow it.

There is more I could say about some of these assumptions if you asked for more specifics, but to get to the bottom line (in case you have not already seen it on my site) I can guarantee you that the rapture will not be on the date you gave or any date this year. I base this on understanding the sabbath year cycles, which the 70 weeks of Daniel are 70 instances of and tells us that Jesus can only return to reign in a sabbath year.
