YHWH||ANYAMARY||JESUSISRAEL say in agreement together,
Sukkot is a festival not celebratory of an anniversary of a past event, like Rosh Hashanah celebrates the birth of Adam and Eve. But instead, is a symbolic time of rejoicing to bring to remembrance the protection the LORD Jehovah God of Israel in the Lord Jesus Christ provided to the Jewish people during their 40-year journey through the wilderness to the Promised-Land, known as Israel.
Sukkot commences just before sundown on Octpber 8, 2022 and ends at nightfall on October 16, 2022. No work is permitted October 14, 2022 through nightfall on October 15, 2022, as those two days are considered Sabbath Days.
During the time the Jewish people spent in the wilderness, they dwelt in collective uniform shelters. And the LORD Jehovah God of Israel in the Lord Jesus Christ provided divine protection over time through covering them with a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.
Today, the Jewish people are both the traditional ancestors of the Israelites of the Old Testament and the Gentile believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah. All who lean on the Lord Jesus Christ as the Messiah for redemption, salvation, and reconciliation to the LORD Jehovah God of Israel in Him have become united together with God as His People.
It is important to realize that this day does not express a desire for the people of the LORD Jehovah God of Israel in the Lord Jesus Christ to dwell on earth without a home. But rather, the holiday expresses the exact opposite. As a home is considered the deepest human physical need that allows a person to be themselves.
Most notably, a Sukkot (“Shelter”) deals with the capacity for a collective human tolerance of all parts of the spiritual body of an imperfect people. To elevate the priority of sustaining an entire body of people, we must bring together the ordinary with the extraordinary.
Every day of Sukkot, a bundle of greens are gathered together and waved before the LORD Jehovah God of Israel in the Lord Jesus Christ in six directions (up, down, north, south, east, west). This mitzvah (“commandment”) expresses thanksgiving for sustaining collectively the Jewish people for another year each day of the festival.
The scholarly and the obedient (“extraordinary”), along with a combination of the two are celebrated right alongside those that are neither (“ordinary”). The ordinary people are the part of the body of people that show up, ready and willing to offer themselves for the entire body of people to ascend into the extraordinary.
YHWH||ANYAMARY||JESUSISRAEL share scripture, Exodus 13:21-22 [*Modified for emphasis]:
21 The [*LORD Jehovah God of Israel in the Lord Jesus Christ] went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.
22 The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people.
YHWH||ANYAMARY||JESUSISRAEL share scripture, Ephesians 2:13-16 [*Modified for emphasis]:
13 But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were [so] far away, through (by, in) the blood of Christ have been brought near.
14 For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony). He has made us both [Jew and Gentile] one [body], and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us,
15 By abolishing in His [own crucified] flesh the enmity [caused by] the Law with its decrees and ordinances [which He annulled]; that He from the two might create in Himself one new man [one new quality of humanity out of the two], so making peace.
16 And [He designed] to reconcile to [*the LORD Jehovah God of Israel in Him] both [Jew and Gentile, united] in a single body by means of His cross, thereby killing the mutual enmity and bringing the feud to an end.
YHWH||ANYAMARY||JESUSISRAEL share scripture, Romans 12:5:
5 So we, numerous as we are, are one body in Christ (the Messiah) and individually we are parts one of another [mutually dependent on one another].
YHWH||ANYAMARY||JESUSISRAEL share scripture, Romans 9:17-21 [*Modified for emphasis]:
17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, I have raised you up for this very purpose of displaying My power in [dealing with] you, so that My name may be proclaimed the whole world over.
18 So then He has mercy on whomever He wills (chooses) and He hardens (makes stubborn and unyielding the heart of) whomever He wills.
19 You will say to me, Why then does He still find fault and blame us [for sinning]? For who can resist and withstand His will?
20 But who are you, a mere man, to criticize and contradict and answer back to [*the LORD Jehovah God of Israel in the Lord Jesus Christ]? Will what is formed say to him that formed it, Why have you made me thus? [Isa. 29:16; 45:9.]
21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same mass (lump) one vessel for beauty and distinction and honorable use, and another for menial or ignoble and dishonorable use?
