The Appointed Times of YHVH—the Festival of the Booths

Posted by on Aug 19, 2017 in The Appointed Times of YHVH

Incorrectly Sukkot is considered the last appointed time of the year in the Rabbinical tradition and is observed for eight instead of seven days. The Torah requires we build sukkot on this appointed time, but says nothing about how to build the sukkah (the booth). And, why are we commanded to observe Chag Sukkot, the Festival of the Booths? These are the appointed times of Yehovah, set-apart gatherings which you are to proclaim at their appointed times. (Lev 23:4) Speak to...

The Appointed Times of YHVH in the Millennial Kingdom

Posted by on Oct 22, 2019 in The Appointed Times of YHVH

It is believed that only one of the appointed times of the Creator will remain for observance during the Millennial Kingdom and all others will be annulled. The proof for this is taken from Zech 14:16-19 where only Chag Sukkot (the Festival of the Booths) of all appointed times of YHVH is mentioned for observance in the Millennial Kingdom that will be established with the coming of the long-awaited Messiah of Israel. The argument for this claim is that the prophecy speaks...
