In my previous post I wrote about how YHVH calls us back to Him. When we respond to His call and return to Him in repentance through Y’shua; He will restore us back unto Him. Sukkot is a picture of that restoration. It is a special time of gladness unto YHVH. We are redeemed by Him and He will teach us His way. He will through His Word and His cycles of righteousness teach us His manner of doing things -His set apart way. Sukkot is also a prophetic picture of the Kingdom of Heaven when Y’shua will return and rule over us . Y’shua will come for His bride and Sukkot is a prophetic picture of the wedding feast. Then comes the 8th day of complete peace and restoration unto YHVH. Will we answer His call and be restored back to Him in obedience to His Word? Will we allow Him to teach us His way?

Our journey in life is part of a cycle. Everything in life is cyclical. Just look at nature – the cycle of life… we are born into this world, we grow up and we grow old and we die. Our life can be meaningful or meaningless. Our choices determine which one it would be. In the Bible there are also different cycles: cycles of righteousness and cycles of unrighteousness; even cycles of punishment. We choose which of these cycles apply to our lives. We can choose obedience to YHVH – learning from His cycles of righteousness and live a meaningful life or choose disobedience and live with the consequences. The world is starting to experience the consequences of disobedience to Yahovah – Yahovah is calling us back to Him.
We are entering into the latter part of the Cycle of Righteousness – YHVH’s Fall Feasts! Yom T’Ruah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot. With every Cycle of Righteousness we get the opportunity to learn more. Every Feast we celebrate is not just a repeat performance of what we did the previous year, but an opportunity to learn more about YHVH and His plan of redemption for mankind. With this opportunity comes a lot of study and sharing but it also can create some contention amongst brothers and sisters. How should we view this? Is it good to have different opinions or should we all think the same, believe the same and do the same? Does it create disunity if we differ in opinion? It shouldn’t!
During this time of year we hear a lot of discussions as to whether or not we should join in the celebration of Rosh haShanah (Head of the new Year). We all know that Exodus 12:2 specifically tells us that the beginning of the year is in Aviv (spring time). Yet, we hear some very convincing tales as to why the Scriptures actually allows for more than one new year (like we have today – calendar year, fiscal year, school year, etc…) In this article I will proof to you that the Scriptures only refer to one new year and it is not Rosh haShanah on 1 Tishri!
