This year is a special Festival of Sukkot that only happens at the end of every 7th year! During Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles), at the conclusion of the Shemitah (7th year of release), God commands His people to assemble so they can hear the Torah as it is read and taught to them.
Then Moses commanded them saying, “At the end of every seven years, in the set time of the year of cancelling debts, during the feast of Sukkot, when all Israel comes to appear before Adonai your God in the place He chooses, you are to read this Torah before them in their hearing. Gather the people—the men and women and little ones, and the outsider within your town gates—so they may hear and so they may learn, and they will fear Adonai your God and take care to do all the words of this Torah -
So, God willing, we will read, expound and teach the meaning of the entire book of Deuteronomy as well as portions from Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers, applicable portions from Tanach and of course the Brit Chadasha. We will dig deep into the Torah and explain the eternal Statutes, Testimonies, Judgments, Covenants, Promises, Oracles and Precepts, as they were given and shown in their application today in the Brit Chadasha (New Testament) times that we live in. This is a very unique opportunity to get a fuller understanding of Torah and why Yeshua (Jesus) said:
“Do not think that I came to abolish the Torah or the Prophets! I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. Amen, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or serif shall ever pass away from the Torah until all things come to pass. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever keeps and teaches them, this one shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the Pharisees and Torah scholars, you shall never enter the kingdom of heaven! -
Yeshua warned against breaking or teaching others that they did not need to keep even the least of God’s commandments. Which commandment is the least? Many have been taught that the laws of the “Old Testament” don’t have application to our salvation or to today’s modern society. How do we reconcile this with what Yeshua taught us? If you love learning and and would like to better understand the meaning and application of Torah for today, join us for the Festival of Sukkot this year in Southern Oregon and we will explore God’s wonderful loving Torah, together.
This responsibility takes more teaching time than traditional Sukkot services, so be prepared to be filled with God’s word. This is sure to be the most thought provoking and eye opening Feast you’ve ever had. Plus, Southern Oregon is a beautifully wonderful place to visit with plenty of activities. We would love to have you join us! Space is limited, so please RSVP.
