Sukkot ImmanuEl “The Word Became Flesh and Tabernacled Among Us”

Sukkot ImmanuEl
“The Word Became Flesh and Tabernacled Among Us”
Rabbi Robert. O. Miller

“Now a great sign appeared in Heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. (Revelation 12:1-2)”

“Therefore the Sovereign Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14)”which is translated, “El with us.” (Matthew 1:23)”

From two Hebrew words,amamעָמַם meaning “to gather” and אֵל El, “the Mighty One” – Yahweh meaning the child would be the gathering together of all that is Yahweh, in other words “the image of the invisible Elohim,” the Son of Yahweh called in the Hebrew the “Adam Kadmon.”

“He is the expressed image (Adam Kadmon) of the invisible Elohim (Ayn Sof), the firstborn over all creation (Son of Yahweh). For through Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.And He is the head of the body, the Assembly, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence (Messiah). (Colossians 1:15-18)”

                YahShua is the image of Yahweh living in the midst of his people.

“…the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth…of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.For the Torah was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Messiah YahShua.No one has seen Yahweh at any time. The only begotten Son,Who is in the bosom of the Father, He has revealed Him. (John 1:14,16-18)”

The feast of our Joy!

“Celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your winepress. Be joyful at your Feast–you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, and the Levites, the aliens, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns. For seven days celebrate the Feast to Yahweh your Elohim at the place Yahweh will choose. For Yahweh your Elohim will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete. Three times a year all your men must appear before Yahweh your Elohim at the place he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles. No man should appear before Yahweh empty-handed: Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way Yahweh your Elohim has blessed you. (Deuteronomy 16:13-17)”

                How has Yahweh blessed us?  “For Yahweh so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.For Yahweh did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16,17)”

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty El, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of Yahweh of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:5,7)”

                The Torah commands us “Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way Yahweh your Elohim has blessed you,” so we must bring with us a rededication to give our lives back to Yahweh – life for a life.  “YahShua said to His disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his crossbeam (or exposure to death), and follow Me.For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:24-26)”

The Birth of Messiah YahShua at Sukkot

            Since Sukkot is our Feast of Joy, Yahweh sent “Joy” in the form of a love package: “Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.And behold,an angel of Yahweh stood before them, and the glory of Yahweh shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Messiah the King.And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a Sukkah.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising Yahweh and saying: “Glory to El Elyon, and on earth peace, toward men of goodwill!” (Luke 2:8-14)”

                We can document that King Messiah YahShua was born on the first day of Sukkot.  It is done by paying attention to five things.

  • The remez of John 1
  • The date that Gabriel the angel tells Zechariah, the soon to be father of Yochannan, about his son’s birth. (The birth date of Yochannan (John) is established by going forward nine months, the term of pregnancy).
  • The approximate date of Miriam’s (Mary’s) conception.
  • The date of Herod’s death.
  • The Sign in the heavens.

The Remez – Hint

“…the Word became flesh and “Tabernacled” among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father…”  This is a “remez” “hint.” The Gaon of Vilna taught that all commands of the Torah are hinted at in the first word of the Torah. For instance, Pidyon Haben – redemption of the first-born – is alluded to by an acronym of the letters of Bereshit, which spell “ben rishon acharei shloshim yom tifdeh” – the first son you shall redeem after thirty days.

Yahweh is hinting to us that the Living Torah, His only begotten Son, will be made flesh on the Feat of Tabernacles – Sukkot!

The Annunciation of Rav Yochannan haTivilah

                In Rabbi Silas’ Messianic account (Luke 1.5) he states that Zechariah is a priest of the course of Abijah. If you will remember King David, according to I Chronicles 24:1-19, had divided the priestly families into twenty-four groups. Each group was a course, and named after the Elder of that particular family. Each course served for one week in the first half of the year, and for another week the second half of the year. This was in addition to the weeks of Pesach, Shavuot, and Sukkot, when all the courses were required to be present (Deuteronomy 16.16). Therefore, “the first …to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah,the third to Harim, the fourth to Seorim,the fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin,  the seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah. (1 Chronicles 24:7-10)” The family of Abijah would serve the tenth week of the first half of the year, having allowed two weeks for Pesach and Shavuot. It is at this time that Zechariah receives the prophecy of Yochanan’s birth.

“So it was, that while he was serving as priest before Elohim in the order of his division,according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot fell to burn incense when he went into the Temple of Yahweh.And the whole multitude of the people was praying outside at the hour of incense.Then an angel of Yahweh appeared to him, standing on the right side of the altar of incense.  And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.  But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name Yochannan. (Luke 1:8-13)”

            Allowing for the “time of separation,”  “Then Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,”Speak to the children of Israel, saying: “If a woman has conceived, and borne a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of her customary impurity she shall be unclean.And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.She shall then continue in the blood of her purification thirty-three days. She shall not touch any hallowed thing, nor come into the Sanctuary until the days of her purification are fulfilled. (Leviticus 12:1-4)” an additional 11 days have to be counted. Allowing for this and going forward a normal pregnancy, the time of Yochanan’s birth (if this is the first half of the year) would be approximately Pesach, when it is expected that Elijah will appear.

                Six months following Elizabeth’s conception, the angel Gabriel is sent to Miriam (Mary), the cousin of Elizabeth.

“Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by Yahweh to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the House of David. The virgin’s name was Miriam.And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, Yahweh is with you; blessed are you among women!”  But when she saw him,she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was.Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Miriam, for you have found favor with Yahweh. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name YahShuah.He will be great, and will be called BenElyon (Son of the Highest); and the Sovereign Yahweh will give Him the throne of His father David.And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” (Luke 1:26-33)”

                Starting at Chanukah, which begins on Kislev 25 and continues for eight days, and counting through the nine months of Miriam’s pregnancy brings one to the approximate time of Sukkot.

Herod’s Death

                How can it be known that Rav Zechariah was given the prophecy about Yochannan in the first half of the year rather than the last? The key is found in the life and death of King Herod.

                Herod, an Edomite, not Jewish, was a man hated by the Jewish people and this figures prominently into the birth of King Messiah YahShua. In Rabbi Mattatiyahu’s account, he tells us young YahShua is visited by “wise men from the East.”

“Now after YahShua was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem,saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” (Matthew 2:1-2)”

                From this passage, we can see that the “wise men” are Jewish. While the verse does not tell how many wise men there are, it does give reference to where they were from. In the Scripture, the “land of the East” is always the land of Babylon (see Genesis 29.1; Judges 6.3). During the first century C.E., the largest Jewish population was in Babylon. These people were the descendants of the captivity of Nebuchadnezzar. Even though Ezra, Nehemiah, and others had returned, most of the people had remained behind. Many refused to return without the Messiah being born.  The fact that the wise men are looking for the Messiah, who was only expected by the Jewish people, should be noted. A prophecy relating to the Messiah, that only Israel was aware of, is found in the book of Numbers.

“I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near; a Star shall come out of Jacob; a Scepter shall rise out of Israel, and batter the brow of Moab, and destroy all the sons of tumult. (Numbers 24:17)”

                Because of the prophecy, a “sign in the Heavens,” a star, was related to the coming of the Messiah.  This will be explored a little later.

                These rabbis or the sages were known as the “chakamim,” which means “the wise men.” The sage Daniel was referred to by this same title. A related word, “mag” is also used for “wise men.” The Greek “magi” is taken from the Babylonian word “mag,” which has a number of meanings. The word is used for astronomer, scientist, counselor, or scholar. The Jewish sages or wise men from Babylon, knowing the prophecy of Numbers 24.17, relating it correctly to the Messiah, and having seen a sign in the heavens, traveled to Jerusalem to see if this was King Messiah.

The illegitimate Edomite Herod was possibly one of the wickedest and most bloodthirsty and perverted men who ever lived. He killed his sons, his favorite wife who was the last of the HaShemites, and thousands of innocent people. His fear of losing his throne drove him to insanity. Augustus Caesar, noting that Herod was a convert to Judaism and therefore would not eat pork, once made the statement that it was better to be a pig in the house of Herod than to be one of his sons. It is no surprise that Herod sought to kill young YahShua, nor that all of Jerusalem would be troubled as Herod received the news that Messiah was born.

“When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. (Matthew 2:3)”

                It is reasoned that the “wise men” appeared about a year to eighteen months after the birth of YahShua. This is based upon Herod’s killing of the male children under two years, according to the date that the wise men had given him for the appearance of the star.

“Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared.And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also… Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men. (Matthew 2:7-8,16)”

                However, Orientals count the years of one’s age from the date of conception; therefore, Herod actually killed the children one year old and under according to the way that age is calculated today. In fact, the wise men arrive in Jerusalem either just prior to or at the time of YahShua’s birth.

It is interesting that up to this time, no one in Jerusalem, including the Temple priest, had heard that Messiah had been born. Knowing the manic psyche of Herod, and his practice of having secret police throughout the country, it is impossible that he would not have heard something. Rabbi Silas’ account of the birth relates the experience of the shepherds of Bethlehem, who after seeing the newborn YahShua, broadcast what they have seen and heard to the entire Jerusalem- Bethlehem region.

“Now when they had seen Him, they made widelyknown the saying which was told them concerning this Child. (Luke 2:17)”

                Jerusalem is only five miles from Bethlehem so it is very probable that Herod or the Temple priest would have heard of Messiah’s birth. Further proof is seen in that forty days after the birth of YahShua, Miriam carries YahShua to the Temple for her purification and His “redemption”. It is here that two well known individuals within the Temple compound make known prophesy concerning the child.

“A woman who … gives birth to a son will be ceremonially unclean for seven days, just as she is unclean during her monthly period. On the eighth day the boy is to be circumcised. Then the woman must wait thirty-three days to be purified from her bleeding. She must not touch anything sacred or go to the Sanctuary until the days of her purification are over.” (Leviticus 12:1-4)

“Now when the days of her purification according to the Torah of Moses were completed, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to Yahweh(as it is written in the Torah of Yahweh, “Every male who opens the womb shall be called holy to Yahweh.” – Exodus 13:2, 12, 15),and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the Torah of Yahweh, ‘A pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.’ (Leviticus 12:8)

                And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Shimon, and this man was a Tzaddik and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) (Holy Spirit) was upon him.And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen Yahweh’s Messiah.So he came by the Spirit into the Temple. And when the parents brought in the Child YahShua, to do for Him according to the custom of the Torah,  he took Him up in his arms and blessed Yahweh and said: ‘Yahweh, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, according to Your word; for my eyes have seen Your ‘yeshua’ (salvation) which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, a light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel.’

                And Joseph and His mothermarveled at those things which were spoken of Him.Then Shimon blessed them, and said to Miriam His mother, ‘Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against(yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.’

                Now there was one, Channa, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity;and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years,who did not depart from the Temple, but served Yahweh with fastings and prayers night and day.And coming in that instant she gave thanks to Yahweh and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem. (Luke 2:22-38)”

                Thinking that all of Judea would be rejoicing, the wise men went to the King.  Having spoken to Herod about the time of Messiah’s birth, they traveled on to Bethlehem having understood another Messianic prophecy.

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting. (Micah 5:2)”

                Having been born in a Sukkah, the new mother and child were moved from the Sukkah following the birth into the house.  The fact that He was born in a Sukkah is a clue to the time of His birth, (Genesis 33.17). Sukkot,” the Feast of Tabernacles, is the plural form of this word. It is even significant that they had to seek cover in the “sukkah” due to “no room in the inn” (Luke 2.7). It was only during the three pilgrim festivals (Pesach, Shavuot, and Sukkot) that Bethlehem would overflow with people. The thousands of pilgrims coming to Jerusalem for the festivals would spill over to the surrounding towns. Caesar capitalized on this by declaring a census.

                Herod died within this same forty days that Joseph and Miriam brought young YahShua into Jerusalem.  The chronology of these forty days is imperative in correctly finding His birth date. Joseph and Miriam come to Jerusalem for the festival of Sukkot, planning to stay in their family hometown, Bethlehem in order to register for the census. Unable to find a room at the inn, they are given shelter in a Sukkah. During the night the wise men arrive in Jerusalem and speak to Herod. Meanwhile, Miriam gives birth. The heavenly host appears to the shepherds, proclaiming that the Messiah has been born. They go to pay Him homage in the Sukkah, while the wise men are making their way to Bethlehem. The shepherds leave to “noise it abroad,” and Miriam is moved to a house. The wise men arrive and during the night are warned by Yahweh that Herod will try to murder him. Joseph and Miriam take the child and flee to Egypt and remain there until Yahweh tells them that Herod is dead. On returning to Judea, they “redeem” YahShua according to the Torah, receiving the prophecies of Channa and Rav Shimon haTzaddik. After this, they will return to Galilee, to Nazareth where they will live.

A Sign In the Heavens

“And Elohim said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years. (Genesis 1:14)”

“Now after YahShua was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” (Matthew 2:1,2)”

                The wise men were skilled astronomers studying the heavens from atop of ziggurats awaiting the sign that Messiah was born so all of Israel could be gathered.  To them the מַזָּרוֹת “Mazzarot” which is the constellations was just another Book of Scripture to be read. 

                The best modern books on this are “The Gospel in the Stars” by Joseph A Seiss, “A Voice Crying in the Heavens” by B. Wadsworth, and “The Witness of the Stars” by E.W. Bullinger.

                In the early evening of June 17, 2 BCEspectacular astronomical events were being witnessed in the western sky. The wise men of the Diaspora had been monitoring for several weeks the planet Venus moving eastward among the stars on what appeared to be a collision course with the planet Jupiter. The celestial events told the wise men that the time of King Messiah was at hand:

  1. August 12, 3 BCE – They saw צַדִּיק Tzadeq, the Righteous One (Jupiter) and ט בֶּ לְ קֹ Kokebet (Venus), the mother called מְלֶכֶת הַשָּׁמַיִם “Meleket ha-Shamayim,” “the queen of heaven,” in Jeremiah 7:18, rise in conjunction. (A conjunction is when celestial bodies line up so closely that they appear to us as a single super bright light.) Tzadeq (Jupiter) The Righteous One – Yahweh is over shadowing Kokebet (Venus), the mother – Israel occurring in the constellation of אֲרִי Arieh (Leo), which is the symbol of the Hebrew royal tribe Judah. Since the wise men were studying in the Holy Scriptures, they knew from Genesis 49:10 that the Messiah would come from the royal tribe of Judah. The message this would have sent the “wise men from the East” was that Yahweh is causing some important royal event is to happen in Israel.
  2. 31 August 3 BCE. כ וֹ כָּ בּ Kokab (Mercury), the heavenly messenger now arrives at Kokebet (Venus), the mother.  The Sun is now in the constellation בְּתוּלָה Betulah (Virgo), the virgin.  Kokab (Mercury) and Kokebet (Venus) are in the constellation of  Arieh (Leo) and Tzadeq (Jupiter) is just entering the same, meaning Yahweh’s messenger, Gabriel is sent to the royal mother Israel personalized by Miriam.
  3. September 3 BCE – They saw Tzadeq (Jupiter) rise in conjunction withמֶלֶךְ  Melek (Regulus – King). Regulus is the brightest star in the constellation of  Arieh (Leo)- a symbol of rulership signifying that Yahweh is handing the scepter to Judah.
  4. February 2 BC – a Second time they saw Tzadeq (Jupiter) rise in conjunction withMelek (Regulus – King). If the woman in Revelation is taken to be the constellation Betulah (Virgo), the virgin, then the Sun clothes her body for one month a year.  The moon will pass through that region in the course of its monthly cycle so that it is (just) under her feet on one particular period – Sukkot.
  5. May 2 BCE – a Third time they saw Tzadeq (Jupiter) rise in conjunction with Melek (Regulus – King).
  6. June 2 BCE – a Second time they saw Tzadeq (Jupiter) andKokebet (Venus) rise in conjunction.
  7. September 2 BCE – a Third time they saw Tzadeq (Jupiter) and Kokebet (Venus) rise in conjunction. This occurred again in the constellation of Arieh, which again is the symbol of the Hebrew tribe Judah.
  8. 26 August 2 BCE A close conjunction of Tzadeq (Jupiter) and אָ דִים מָ Ma’adim (Mars) the warrior, in the constellation Arieh (Leo), with Kokebet (Venus), the mother and Kokab (Mercury), the heavenly messenger, and the Sun in the constellation Betulah (Virgo) which suggests these events will lead to war.
  9. 3 and 2 BCE – On these two occasions, Tzadeq (Jupiter) was located directly in the womb area of the constellation of Betulah (Virgo) the virgin. Jupiter’s Hebrew name is “ Tzadeq,” was throughout the period of YahShua and the apostles a term used for the Messiah.
  10. 14 Sept 3 BCE, 17 Feb 2 BCE, and 8 May 2 BCE. Three conjunctions of Tzadeq (Jupiter) with Melek (Regulus – King)., the brightest star in the constellation Arieh (Leo), the lion, and located between the lion’s feet. The message is Tzadeq (Jupiter) the Righteous One, circles above Melek (Regulus – King), the king, placing a crown on the king’s head.
  11. 17 June, 2 BCE. A very rare close conjunction of Tzadeq (Jupiter), the Righteous One and Kokebet (Venus), the mother is what sends the wise men on their way to Jerusalem.
  12. Then on September 25, 3 BCE (Tishri 15) with the sun mid-body along the ecliptic in Betulah

(Virgo) and the moon at her feet, the twelve stars of the constellation known as “Coma Bernice’s hair” is at her head.  A triple conjunction of Tzadeq (Jupiter) Kokebet (Venus) and Melek (Regulus – King) occurred between the constellation and Betulah’s (Virgo) feet.  Higher and above her legs, we find תַּנִין Tanēn’  (Draco, the Dragon – that ancient serpent called the devil, or haSatan, who leads the whole world astray), poised to devour the child. Then between 6:15 to 7:49 pm a comet coming out of the heavens went right through her entering her head and just as it came from between her legs and aligned with Tzadeq (Jupiter) Kokebet (Venus) and Melek (Regulus) a flash of light burst forth and Messiah was born.

“A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. (Revelation 12:1-3).”

Messiah YahShua Celebrated Sukkot

                Our Messiah celebrated Sukkot by taking his disciples up the mount to show them something spectacular. “After six days Rebbe YahShua took Rabbis Kepha, Yakkov and Yochannan with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Rebbe YahShua.

Rabbi Kepha said to Rebbe YahShua, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three Sukkas–one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)

Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”

Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Rebbe YahShua.

As they were coming down the mountain, Rebbe YahShua gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what “rising from the dead” meant.

And they asked him, “Why do the Rabbis of the Torah say that Elijah must come first?”

Rebbe YahShua replied, “To be sure, Elijah does come first, and restores all things. Why then is it written that the Son of Man must suffer much and be rejected? But I tell you, Elijah has come, and they have done to him everything they wished, just as it is written about him.” (Mark 9:2-13)”

The Transfiguration reminds us that we will someday trade these earthly tents for beautiful glorified bodies to dwell forever in the Heavenly Jerusalem with Him. “And so we will be with the King forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:17)” Just to BE with Him will be real SIMCHAT, JOY!

“Now Yahweh is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of Yahweh is, there is liberty.But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of Yahweh, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of Yahweh. (2 Corinthians 3:17-19)”

                Each Holy Day has its own special glory and as we celebrate each of Yahweh’s appointed times we are being transformed. From glory to glory He’s changing us, transforming us, to His likeness.

“Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from Yahweh, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. (2 Corinthians 5:1)”
