The Feast of Sukkot isn’t exactly making national headlines…  Or international headlines either…

This magnificent Fall Feast of YHVH is all but lost to the world as they are not interested in the Scriptures and especially not interested in what God our Father has to say.

Only the tiny Remnant of the end of this age is keeping Sukkot.

They are the only ones who can qualify for eternal life.

Only those who keep the Sabbath and hold fast the Covenant can qualify for eternal life.  Isaiah 56.

The rest of the seed the Sower sewed fell in thorns and thistles, on rocks, on bad earth and had no depth, and a few sprung up to life only to pay more attention to the world while they got distracted with their eyes on their lusts and passions (like Sabbath breaking sports and TV) and the cares of life.  They forgot their Creator and traded in His Son for a theological alternative.

That is the story of the 5 Foolish Virgins whose oil was running out in their lamps and they played the harlot by not keeping all of YHVH’s Commandments and rejecting honoring Him and His holy day Sabbath and His Covenant (LOW ON OIL).

LOW ON OIL = Not keeping YHVH’s Commandments.

Isaiah 56 and Revelation 22:14 says pretty much all anyone needs to know about believing in God and His Son.

But James tells those Foolish Virgins what to do in order to get themselves right with YHVH and His Son:

 

James 4:7-9   Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.

 

There it is, draw near to YHVH in a set apart sukkot… and He will draw near to you.

Become the image of the Living God/Elohim just like His Son was.

Sukkot Shalom!
