Happy Birthday Yahshua!?!?

Standard

Well, I have much I’d like to share – thoughts on each day’s beginning, thoughts on Day of Atonement, which was this past Sunday, a few details of my boys’ lives… but I’ve been incredibly busy the last few days, as we have school, and I get ready for a camping trip this weekend, in part, to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot.

There is SOOO much in this feast.  It is ALL about celebration. Wedding feast of the Lamb kind of stuff,  references from the NT,  Yahshua defining part of the ceremony on the Last Great Day, telling how it pointed to him… The remembrance of “God With Us” both in the past, in the wilderness, and in the future when hardship and “end time events” come, as well as the final end of the age when we will be with Him and He with us! This is a Feast that required all men to go to Jerusalem (and many of course, brought their family’s), where the family builds a temporary shelter in the fields and hills nearby Jerusalem and neighboring towns such as Bethlehem and Bethany; Shelters/Booths/Sukkah’s/tabernacles in which the men were required to spend at least one night (the women could stay in homes of friends, relatives or of course local inns.) and where there is a basket/table/creche for keeping food, as several meals were eaten in the Sukkah’s.  So much to say….

For tonight tho, I’m cheating,  and will ask you to take a look at the links provided for the possible explanation of the “intermediate” fulfillment of this week’s feast (which starts Thursday at sundown 2011, Started Monday at sundown, Oct 1, 2012) in the coming of Immanuel – God with Us!!

Feast of Unleavened Bread - A Sign, A Frontlet?

 

It’s a rather long discussion, so I won’t copy/paste it here, but the following two links give enough information, I think, to pinpoint Yahshua’s birth to the Feast of Tabernacles!!

So fitting, that Immanuel would come, during the feast commemorating “God tabernacling, or living with us”! It seems really incongruous for us to teach our children that Jesus was born in the fall, but to celebrate his birth in the winter – so part of our celebration will be about Yahshua’s Birthday!!

Check out these two links for more – study it out  😀

Blessings to you all, and have a wonderful Feast of Tabernacles!! (btw – our  Thanksgiving was likely first celebrated as a feast of Tabernacles 😉 )

Even our traditional manger scenes have it portrayed well…

A Sukkah (in Hebrew it is translated Tabernacle or Booth.  Jacob made Booths for his animals, AND we are instructed to dwell in Booths during the feast of Tabernacles)

A manger scene…

A Sukkah …. (artistic note – the moon should be full in the picture – Sukkot begins on the 15th day of the month counting from the new moon…)

About Beloved of YHWH

I am the “Head of Domestic Affairs” here on the mountain top. What that means is, I’m a stay-at home mom of 2 Boys, Small business owner, gardener, homemaker, blogger, planner, mediator, nurse, and so much more. My life took an unexpected and painful turn a couple of years ago, which is how I came to name my blog Shakam Boqer, but YHVH has been incredibly faithful to me, the boys and I are healing, and I am full of hope. I’m a follower of Yeshua, and my faith is an integral part of my life. Part of how He created me to reflect Him is to be a teller of the Story. I share my story, not as an exhibitionist, not for the attention it might receive, not for accolades or recognition, but, for His Glory – so that others, as they read, as they see how YHVH has led and loved me over the course of time, can be edified, lifted up, encouraged to Look to HIM, to Trust Him, to pursue Holy Wholeness with every fiber of their beings. Within this blog, I want community and conversation and interaction. I want to offer hope, and joy, and also thought provoking bits that make one look deeper into the heart of Elohim. This is my place to share my thoughts, wrestlings and just daily life. Please, please feel free to comment, discuss and even dissect & respectfully disagree. Be sure you check out Welcome & Disclaimers to get a general idea of the Blog, and what I am about: http://wp.me/p1Tc3u-1 Feel free to contact me directly at: abigailmistyd at gmail dot com. Some blogs are password protected as I don't want pictures of my children pulled from my blog in a "image search" and posted elsewhere on the web. If I know you in person, or we have interacted online, and you'd like to read them, shoot me a note, tell me how I know you, and ask for the password. :)
