Moadim L’Simcha /Appointed Times for Joy
Welcome to Parasha Moadim L’Simcha /Appointed Times for Joy , this week’s Torah portion.
12 Moshe said to YAHUVEH, “Look, you say to me, ‘Make these people move on!’ But you haven’t let me know whom you will be sending with me. Nevertheless you have said, ‘I know you by name,’ and also, ‘You have found favor in my sight.’ 13 Now, please, if it is really the case that I have found favor in your sight, show me your ways; so that I will understand you and continue finding favor in your sight. Moreover, keep on seeing this nation as your people.” 14 He answered, “Set your mind at rest — my presence will go with you, after all.” 15 Moshe replied, “If your presence doesn’t go with us, don’t make us go on from here. 16 For how else is it to be known that I have found favor in your sight, I and your people, other than by your going with us? That is what distinguishes us, me and your people, from all the other peoples on earth.”
(iv) 17 YAHUVEH said to Moshe, “I will also do what you have asked me to do, because you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.” 18 But Moshe said, “I beg you to show me your glory!” 19 He replied, “I will cause all my goodness to pass before you, and in your presence I will pronounce the name of YAHUVEH. Moreover, I show favor to whomever I will, and I display mercy to whomever I will. 20 But my face,” he continued, “you cannot see, because a human being cannot look at me and remain alive. 21 Here,” he said, “is a place near me; stand on the rock. 22 When my glory passes by, I will put you inside a crevice in the rock and cover you with my hand, until I have passed by. 23 Then I will remove my hand, and you will see my back, but my face is not to be seen.”
34 (v) YAHUVEH said to Moshe, “Cut yourself two tablets of stone like the first ones; and I will inscribe on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. 2 Be ready by morning; in the morning you are to ascend Mount Sinai and present yourself to me on the top of the mountain. 3 No one is to come up with you, and no one is to be seen anywhere on the mountain; don’t even let the flocks or herds feed in front of this mountain.” 4 Moshe cut two stone tablets like the first. Then he got up early in the morning and, with the two stone tablets in his hands, ascended Mount Sinai, as YAHUVEH had ordered him to do.
5 YAHUVEH descended in the cloud, stood with him there and pronounced the name of YAHUVEH. 6 YAHUVEH passed before him and proclaimed: “YUD-HEH-VAV-HEH!!! Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh [YAHUVEH] is ELOHIM, merciful and compassionate, slow to anger, rich in grace and truth; 7 showing grace to the thousandth generation, forgiving offenses, crimes and sins; yet not exonerating the guilty, but causing the negative effects of the parents’ offenses to be experienced by their children and grandchildren, and even by the third and fourth generations.” 8 At once Moshe bowed his head to the ground, prostrated himself 9 and said, “If I have now found favor in your view, YAHUVEH, then please let YAHUVEH go with us, even though they are a stiffnecked people; and pardon our offenses and our sin; and take us as your possession.”
(vi) 10 He said, “Here, I am making a covenant; in front of all your people I will do wonders such as have not been created anywhere on earth or in any nation. All the people around you will see the work of YAHUVEH. What I am going to do through you will be awesome! 11 Observe what I am ordering you to do today. Here! I am driving out ahead of you the Emori, Kena‘ani, Hitti, P’rizi, Hivi and Y’vusi. 12 Be careful not to make a covenant with the people living in the land where you are going, so that they won’t become a snare within your own borders. 13 Rather, you are to demolish their altars, smash their standing-stones and cut down their sacred poles; 14 because you are not to bow down to any other god; since YAHUVEH — whose very name is Jealous — is a jealous ELOHIM. 15 Do not make a covenant with the people living in the land. It will cause you to go astray after their gods and sacrifice to their gods. Then they will invite you to join them in eating their sacrifices, 16 and you will take their daughters as wives for your sons. Their daughters will prostitute themselves to their own gods and make your sons do the same!
17 “Do not cast metal gods for yourselves.
18 “Keep the festival of matzah by eating matzah, as I ordered you, for seven days during the month of Aviv; for it was in the month of Aviv that you came out from Egypt.
19 “Everything that is first from the womb is mine. Of all your livestock, you are to set aside for me the males, the firstborn of cattle and flock. 20 The firstborn of a donkey you must redeem with a lamb; if you won’t redeem it, break its neck. All the firstborn of your sons you are to redeem, and no one is to appear before me empty-handed.
21 “Six days you will work, but on the seventh day you are to rest — even in plowing time and harvest season you are to rest.
22 “Observe the festival of Shavu‘ot with the first-gathered produce of the wheat harvest, and the festival of ingathering at the turn of the year. 23 Three times a year all your men are to appear before the Lord, YAHUVEH, the ELOHIM of Isra’el. 24 For I am going to expel nations ahead of you and expand your territory, and no one will even covet your land when you go up to appear before YAHUVEH your ELOHIM three times a year. 25 You are not to offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread, and the sacrifice of the feast of Pesach is not to be left until morning. 26 You are to bring the best firstfruits of your land into the house of YAHUVEH your ELOHIM.
“You are not to boil a young goat in its mother’s milk.”
18 When that day comes, when Gog invades the land of Isra’el,’ says YAHUVEH ELOHIM, ‘my furious anger will boil up. 19 In my jealousy, in my heated fury I speak: when that day comes there will be a great earthquake in the land of Isra’el; 20 so that the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the wild beasts, all the reptiles creeping on the ground and every human being there in the land will tremble before me. Mountains will fall, cliffs crumble and every wall crash to the ground. 21 I will summon a sword against him throughout all my mountains,’ says YAHUVEH ELOHIM; ‘every man will wield his sword against his brother. 22 I will judge him with plague and with blood. I will cause torrential rain to fall on him, his troops and the many peoples with him, along with huge hailstones, fire and sulfur. 23 I will show my greatness and holiness, making myself known in the sight of many nations; then they will know that I am YAHUVEH.’
39 “So you, human being, prophesy against Gog; say that YAHUVEH ELOHIM says: ‘I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshekh and Tuval. 2 I will turn you around, lead you on and bring you from the far reaches of the north against the mountains of Isra’el. 3 But then I will knock your bow out of your left hand and make your arrows drop from your right hand. 4 You will fall on the mountains of Isra’el, you, your troops and all the peoples with you; I will give you to be eaten up by all kinds of birds of prey and by wild animals. 5 You will fall in the open field, for I have spoken,’ says YAHUVEH ELOHIM.
6 “‘I will also send fire against Magog and against those living securely in the coastlands; then they will know that I am YAHUVEH. 7 I will make my holy name known among my people Isra’el; I will not allow my holy name to be profaned any longer. Then the Goyim will know that I am YAHUVEH, the Holy One in Isra’el. 8 Yes, this is coming, and it will be done,’ says YAHUVEH ELOHIM; ‘this is the day about which I have spoken.
9 “‘Those living in Isra’el’s cities will go out and set fire to the weapons, to use as fuel — the shields, breastplates, bows, arrows, clubs and spears; they will use them for fire seven years; 10 so that they will not need to gather wood from the fields or cut down any from the forests; because they will use the weapons for fire. Thus they will plunder those who plundered them and rob those who robbed them,’ says YAHUVEH ELOHIM.
11 “‘When that day comes, I will give Gog a place there in Isra’el for graves, the Travelers’ Valley, east of the sea; and it will block the travelers’ passage. There they will bury Gog and all his horde, and they will rename it the Valley of Hamon-Gog [horde of Gog]. 12 It will take the house of Isra’el seven months to bury them, in order to cleanse the land. 13 Yes, all the people of the land will be burying them; they will become famous for it. It will be a day for me to be glorified,’ says YAHUVEH ELOHIM. 14 ‘They will then pick men for the continual duty of going through the land and burying with the travelers the corpses still lying out on the ground, in order to cleanse it; they will begin their search after the seven months. 15 As they go through the land, if anyone sees a human bone, he will put a marker next to it until the gravediggers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon-Gog. 16 Moreover, “Hamonah” [its horde] will be the name of a city. Thus will they cleanse the land.’
21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth,[a] for the old heaven and the old earth had passed away, and the sea was no longer there. 2 Also I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from ELOHIM, prepared like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 I heard a loud voice from the throne say, “See! ELOHIM’s Sh’khinah is with mankind, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and he himself, ELOHIM-with-them, will be their ELOHIM.[b] 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will no longer be any death; and there will no longer be any mourning, crying or pain; because the old order has passed away.”
5 Then the One sitting on the throne said, “Look! I am making everything new!” Also he said, “Write, ‘These words are true and trustworthy!’” 6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the ‘A’ and the ‘Z,’ the Beginning and the End. To anyone who is thirsty I myself will give water free of charge from the Fountain of Life. 7 He who wins the victory will receive these things, and I will be his ELOHIM, and he will be my son. 8 But as for the cowardly, the untrustworthy, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those involved with the occult and with drugs, idol-worshippers, and all liars — their destiny is the lake burning with fire and sulfur, the second death.”
9 One of the seven angels having the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues approached me and said, “Come! I will show you the Bride, the Wife of the Lamb.” 10 He carried me off in the Spirit to the top of a great, high mountain and showed me the holy city, Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from ELOHIM. 11 It had the Sh’khinah of ELOHIM, so that its brilliance was like that of a priceless jewel, like a crystal-clear diamond. 12 It had a great, high wall with twelve gates; at the gates were twelve angels; and inscribed on the gates were the names of the twelve tribes of Isra’el. 13 There were three gates to the east, three gates to the north, three gates to the south and three gates to the west. 14 The wall of the city was built on twelve foundation-stones, and on these were the twelve names of the twelve emissaries of the Lamb.
15 The angel speaking with me had a gold measuring-rod with which to measure the city, its gates and its wall. 16 The city is laid out in a square, its length equal to its width. With his rod he measured the city at 1,500 miles, with length, width and height the same. 17 He measured its wall at 216 feet by human standards of measurement, which the angel was using. 18 The wall was made of diamond and the city of pure gold resembling pure glass. 19 The foundations of the city wall were decorated with all kinds of precious stones — the first foundation stone was diamond, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh turquoise and the twelfth amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls, with each gate made of a single pearl. The city’s main street was pure gold, transparent as glass.
22 I saw no Temple in the city, for YAHUVEH, ELOHIM of heaven’s armies, is its Temple, as is the Lamb. 23 The city has no need for the sun or the moon to shine on it, because ELOHIM’s Sh’khinah gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. 25 Its gates will never close, they stay open all day because night will not exist there, 26 and the honor and splendor of the nations will be brought into it. 27 Nothing impure may enter it, nor anyone who does shameful things or lies; the only ones who may enter are those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
22 Next the angel showed me the river of the water of life, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of ELOHIM and of the Lamb. 2 Between the main street and the river was the Tree of Life producing twelve kinds of fruit, a different kind every month; and the leaves of the tree were for healing the nations — 3 no longer will there be any curses. The throne of ELOHIM and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will worship him; 4 they will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 Night will no longer exist, so they will need neither the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because YAHUVEH, ELOHIM, will shine upon them. And they will reign as kings forever and ever.
6 Then he said to me, “These words are true and trustworthy: YAHUVEH, ELOHIM of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must happen soon.”
7 “Look! I am coming very soon. Blessed is the person who obeys the words of the prophecy written in this book!”
8 Then I, Yochanan, the one hearing and seeing these things, when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel showing them to me. 9 But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am only a fellow-servant with you and your brothers, the prophets and the people who obey the words in this book. Worship ELOHIM!”
10 Then he said to me, “Don’t seal up the words of the prophecy in this book,[c] because the time of their fulfillment is near.
“Whoever keeps acting wickedly, let him go on acting wickedly;
whoever is filthy, let him go on being made filthy.
“Also, whoever is righteous, let him go on doing what is righteous;
and whoever is holy, let him go on being made holy.”
12 “Pay attention!” [says YAHUSHUA,] “I am coming soon, and my rewards are with me to give to each person according to what he has done. 13 I am the ‘A’ and the ‘Z,’ the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
14 How blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates into the city! 15 Outside are the homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with drugs, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. 16 “I, YAHUSHUA, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star. 17 The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let anyone who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let anyone who is thirsty come — let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge.”
18 I warn everyone hearing the words of the prophecy in this book that if anyone adds to them, ELOHIM will add to him the plagues written in this book. 19 And if anyone takes anything away from the words in the book of this prophecy, ELOHIM will take away his share in the Tree of Life and the holy city, as described in this book.
20 “The one who is testifying to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon!’”
Amen! Come, Lord YAHUSHUA!
21 May the grace of the Lord YAHUSHUA be with all!
This is from Prophecy 105, YAHUVEH said to put this up on all Prophecies from now on: I warned you a long time ago Elisabeth (Elisheva) not to name this Ministry after a man or a woman even before there was a Ministry. I put it in your spirit for none of this has been done by your hand, none of this has come forth from your mouth. It is from the Mouth of YAHUVEH that has given birth. It is from the Mouth of YAHUSHUA your MASHIACH that has given birth. It is from the Mouth of the RUACH ha KODESH your IMMAYAH that has given birth. If it had only been by your hand it would have failed long ago. It is by the SHKHINYAH GLORY’S Wind that blows across this earth, the Holy Wind of Revival, it is not by your breath or it would have failed. (Isaiah 42:8)

Torah Portion: Gog and Magog: Challenging the Restoration of Israel
Prophecy 50 The Power! The Power! The Power! Is in YAHUVEH’s Name!
Beware every enemy of Yisrael. You have the covering oh Yisrael, of America but when you turn your back on Yisrael, oh woe be onto America. Even the scriptures verify you are to be praying for the peace of Jerusalem. When you do anything that comes against MY Word think not that I have not heard. I speak to the entire world leave the apple of MY eye alone. For I have chastised her; she has not known peace. But this is for ME to do and not for you. She will once again cry out to ME, the Elohim of her forefathers, for I made a covenant with Abraham and I will not break it. I made a promise to YAHUSHUA, for HE said they know not what they do. He said, “Forgive them, oh Father, for they know not what they do.” But you America and those that join in the United Nations, I warn you now, don’t come against the apple of MY eye, although she’s done much wrong, she has done also what is right in MY eyes. The people of Yisrael are as one large family, when you hurt one, you hurt them all. When you kill one, it is like their own family.
Oh America, you only think you know grief. You should have to walk in the shoes that Yisrael has walked in. They fight and they struggle for each breath since I have decreed her a nation. Since this baby was born, this baby has been tried again and again. They have tried to kill her. But, I have breathed life in her each time, as I’ve done it again and again. For all those that seek her destruction know that “I AM” will do it again. They hunger and they thirst after righteousness and they know not why; but if only they would accept the fresh manna and the Bread of Life and the new wine. They would live and not die. But they will, I tell you, they will. For I have a remnant that will come out of Yisrael and live and Yisrael shall stand, but she will not be defended by man.
For I have placed a mystery within Yisrael, and the power is within that Box a power like none other, with all of your atomic weapons, they cannot begin to compare with the Rod that I have placed inside that Box. It will once again dry the riverbed of the Red Sea. The miracles that Moses did will once again be seen. If only they can once again believe. The Name, the Name, the Name; the power alone is in the Name. Call out to ME in the Name of YAHUSHUA, for in YAHUSHUA’s Name the evil will not stay. Call out to ME in the Name of YAHUSHUA, the Blood covering of this land and the world. For HE is truly YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, the MESSIAH not only of Yisrael, but of the entire world for HIS Blood flowed into the soil, into Yisrael’s own soil, and it flowed across the world to every woman and man, boy and girl. MY Children know the power of that Name. In the Name of YAHUSHUA, MY Children will be saved.
Prophecy 42 SURRENDER!!!Enemies of Mine Drop Your Weapons!
Both Spiritual and Carnal!
Oh surrender thus saith, YAHUVEH. Oh surrender, surrender, surrender. Again I say to the enemies of MINE, the enemies that circle and surround this anointed Apostolic/Prophetic Ministry, this handmaiden of MINE Elisabeth Sherrie Elijah [Elisheva Eliyahu], the enemies that have surrounded other anointed Apostolic/Prophetic Ministries I speak it again, all those that surround Israel, all those that surround Jerusalem, drop your weapons both spiritual and carnal before I the Great Elohim “I AM” will cause fire to fall from Heaven and I will totally annihilate and obliterate all of you (Ezekiel 38:23-24).
HORROR, HORROR, HORROR, weeping, lamentations, death and so many burials that there will not be room enough to put them in cemeteries. The hand of MY judgment, that once slapped you, now will turn into a fist and I will smash you. I the Great Elohim “I AM,” in MY mercy, warn every nation, every people, every kindred, every tongue, leave MY beloved Jerusalem alone. The blood of the fallen soaks into the ground and cries out to ME. The blood of the fallen in Israel has not been in vain. I hear the weeping and profound lamentations, of the people who love I, YAHUVEH. I hear MY Name called out by those that are slain.
What country, what nation have the loyalty, what state, what province, what island have the love and the loyalty Israel shows forth as they battle to keep the land, the Great Elohim “I AM” YAHUVEH gave to their forefathers long ago? I speak to the spiritual leaders, remember David and Goliath? David did not run from Goliath, but ran toward Goliath, knowing the battle is MINE. The enemy now brings strange gods into your land oh Israel, and yet they are no god at all. The women and men of the enemies bring their strange doctrines and would try to entangle the people of Israel in a form of bondage that I have not decreed. Israel, I speak forth out of this handmaiden, remember you are the land of milk and honey, you are the land Abraham blessed, you have nothing to fear, but fear itself.
Precede every battle as it was done in the past with musicians, songs of praise, worship, and prayers. Do you not believe the words in the Torah? Israel, you are the nation the world does not understand, so envied and abused, so hated without cause. For you desire peace and yet you have never known peace. You give away land and homes that I have not told you to give away, merely to keep peace. Do you not know the more you give, the more they will demand? Do you not know, you cannot satisfy the spirit of greed? Look to ME oh Israel, once again for the Great Elohim “I AM” YAHUVEH is your deliverer.
The celebration of Hanukkah comes, for all those who observe the celebration, expect miracles once again for I am the Light that will light your path in darkness. Cover your leaders in prayer for they are being sifted by satan like grains of sand. You had been betrayed by leaders you’ve trusted from the smallest to the greatest for filthy lucre which will not buy their soul. Fast and pray, for MY perfect Will to be done for I am pent up in anger at the murder, lying, deceitfulness that is being done.
I command all to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Torah Portion: Sukkot and the Protective Covering of YAHUVEH
Prophecy 120: Don’t Give Up! Do Not Quit! Sukkot Restoration Prophecy to Hebrew Translator, Messianic Jews & All Believers
Remember MY darling one, “Judases” will come and “Judases” will go. I had MY “Judases.” You have yours. Elisabeth [Elisheva] has hers. All, all, all who follow after ME, if they are not persecuted in MY NAME, had better ask themselves, “Why not?” For the servant is not greater than the MASTER (Jn 13:16). It is all…all do not love ME. [Not all love me]. Do not expect all to love you—as I still am persecuted—in this world I AM hated more than I AM loved! I AM mocked more than I AM accepted! But I paid the PRICE at Calvary. And Israel—Oh, Israel—how long, how long, how long, how long must I wait for thee to accept ME—to love ME?
Oh I know how long it will be! And I know the price Israel shall pay! And it will be a price that is so heavy—for they are held more accountable. For I walked the streets of Jerusalem. MY BLOOD, MY BLOOD, MY BLOOD is soaked in the land. Oh how I grieve! How I mourn!
But there is a remnant! I do have a remnant! I ALWAYS have a remnant! They are few, but they are MINE! And just as I have you so too there are others in Israel. And they are spread all over the world and they are going to stand up and they are going to defend! And they are defending that which is Holy! And they are exposing and rebuking all that is unholy and they are warning that the false messiah is on the way—but it shall not happen until I take MY true Bride away.
So I just take this moment to say, “Thank you.” I send this Prophet of MINE to say, “Thank you.” Not one tear you have shed when it has been done for MY NAME’S sake, is not stored up in Heaven in a precious bottle, encrusted with gems and jewels of all kinds (Ps 56:8). And the greater the persecution—I tell you this, MY beloved ones, MY beloved Bride—the stronger the fragrance. The aroma is in that vial of your tears. It has been a sacrifice unto ME, your YAHUSHUA, your HEAVENLY FATHER and the PRECIOUS RUACH HA KODESH.
Oh how long, how long, how long, how long, how long, how long I have waited to be able to embrace MY Bride! But it shall not be much longer! It shall not be much longer! You will be in MY Arms! You will hear MY Voice!
Just don’t give up! Don’t you quit! For you have come this far! Don’t give up! Don’t you quit! Don’t you compromise with the world’s lies!
The more that the world tells you that you are unholy, know that you are Holy! The more that they mock and they laugh—because you follow the Torah Laws—know that you are MINE!
The more you defend the Sabbath, the Shabbat and say, “It is not a Sunday”—just know that you are MINE! Don’t give up. Don’t quit. Although the persecution is so heavy and although it will get heavier, remember WHOSE NAME you are persecuted for! Remember WHO you are hated for!
Oh they’ll use your name and your name they will profane and speak all manner of evil against it, but it’s not really your name they hate. It is WHO you represent. It is who you are in ME. It’s the Messages that you give that come straight from Heaven.
So don’t you give up! Don’t you quit!
For I’m going to take Vengeance on these enemies! And they shall pray for the very mountains to hide them—from HE WHO SITS ON THE THRONE (Rev 6:15-17)! And the HOLY LAMB that was slain, crucified and arose again! YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH IS MY NAME!
And I tell you DON’T GIVE UP! AND DON’T YOU QUIT! For I AM with you!
Reach MY people. Reach MY people. I not only speak to the people in Israel but I speak to the people of the world. Reach MY people. Continue to feed MY sheep and lambs. Continue not to be ashamed of your testimony for your Testimony is not who you are, your TESTIMONY is WHO I AM—in you! That is what the devil hates! That is what your enemies hate!
But that very TESTIMONY proves WHO I AM—for I change lives! And great, great, great, great, great, great, great are the rewards waiting for those—in Heaven—who have been willing, willing to lay their reputations down, their names down, have been willing to be persecuted for MY NAME’S sake! Great, great, great, great, great are your rewards waiting for you in Heaven.
Prophecy 75 I, YAHUVEH, Will Sanctify And Meet You In Your Sukkot!
[I Command You to Keep and Honor MY Holy Days]
Oh Treasure of MY heart, do you not believe that I, YAHUVEH, and MY Son YAHUSHUA will protect you as you observe this Holy Time? Am I not able to keep you safe? Even in Jerusalem, where the danger is great the Hebrew people make their Sukkots as it is written for they trust I, YAHUVEH, to protect them and I do.
Who are you afraid of offending I, YAHUVEH, or your neighbors? Do you really care what others think of you more than what would please I, YAHUVEH, and YAHUSHUA? Do you not know that MY People are called the peculiar people, for they walk not to the sound of this world but to the sound of Heaven. Why would you be ashamed of this, MY little one, for this would be a witness unto ME for YAHUVEH’s Glory? Pray that your neighbors will take notice so you can tell them the story of why you build a Sukkot in remembrance of MY Word. This would be pleasing unto me for those who do this witness for ME before their neighbors and I ask you to do the same. How can you witness for ME and be an example of your faith if you hide your Leanto in your bathroom?
The Sukkot is to be outdoors where you can behold the Sky. The Jewish people don’t even realize why the Sukkot has a opening in the roof. It is to fulfill the scripture “Look Up your redemption draweth nigh for YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH will come in the Eastern Sky” You need not fear the enemies harming you for I, YAHUVEH, will bless and protect those who are MINE and confound those who think themselves wise, as they ignore the ways of this evil world and ignore the snickers of the enemies. I shall mock those that mock you in their time of trouble.
Create a Temporary shelter that opens to the Sky. Ask ME and I shall lead and direct you how. Take your meals in this Sukkot and rest your head in I, YAHUVEH, and YAHUSHUA’s loving arms. I shall meet you there. For those who say they must work the jobs of this world, I say unto you then sow that seed into the work of the Kingdom of Heaven and see if I will not pour forth a blessing so great that will give you reason to praise I, YAHUVEH, and YAHUSHUA. I put it upon your heart, MY Daughter Patricia, to ask these questions and write this Ringmaiden of YAHUSHUA so she will share this with others who are new to the Jewish Festivals and desire to fulfill them also. You serve a Risen MESSIAH. Should you not do what He did also to honor and keep the Jewish Holy Days? Those who have been chosen to be YAHUSHUA’s Bride hear what MY Prophet writes as I, YAHUVEH, give her the words.
What is good enough for YAHUSHUA is it not good enough for those who follow after YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH? Blessings shall come to you MY Daughter for obeying and writing Elisabeth [Elisheva] with these questions, for now others shall learn along with you. This word is meant to be shared to all with Spiritual eyes to see and Spiritual ears to hear. All others remain deaf and blind as the evil pharaohs and Pharisees of this land.
I, YAHUVEH, give MY Babies, Bride, Chosen Ones and Elect, those who feed on MY Spiritual Meat to eat and recognize I, YAHUVEH, speak forth out of MY Handmaiden and through her I give this mandate to you. You are to celebrate all the Jewish Holy Days and the coming days of Sukkot as a reminder you are only living in a Temporary Dwelling place. Earth is your temporary dwelling place until you come home to Heaven. You are just a traveler passing through until you accomplish the job I have sent you to earth to do. Destruction is coming to this world, along with it death and disease and weather disasters created by man playing God. You are to observe this Sukkot even if you have never celebrated it before. You are to Keep all the coming Holy Days. Where your faith is your Passover will be. You are to fast on Yom Kippur, humbling yourself before I, YAHUVEH, and fasting for the evil in your land so you will be spared when death visits MY enemies who set themselves against all that is Holy.
You are to remind yourself, as you build your temporary Shelters so very frail, how any shelter created by man, how frail it is. A mere wind can knock it over but when I, YAHUVEH, and MY Son YAHUSHUA are with you in the midst of that fragile shelter, even in your fragile Temple called your body, I am easily able to protect those I call MY Babies, Bride, Chosen Ones and Elect.
Test I, YAHUVEH, and behold for MY Babies, Bride, Chosen Ones and Elect who do this, see if I do not bless and protect with a more potent anointing, those that diligently love, serve, obey and seek after I, YAHUVEH, and YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.
What is good enough for YAHUSHUA to honor isn’t it good enough for you? I, YAHUVEH, put you in remembrance. You do not worship and serve a Christian Messiah but rather YAHUSHUA was born from a Hebrew Virgin Woman on Hebrew soil, walked and ministered signs wonders and miracles on Hebrew soil. YAHUSHUA kept the Torah and was found without sin. YAHUSHUA ministered as a Rabbi on the only true Shabbat (Sabbath).
YAHUSHUA was not preaching in the Temples on a Sunday. Those with Spiritual ears to hear, listen. All others remain deaf. For the Sabbath is perpetual and for eternity will stand for I, YAHUVEH, created the earth in 6 days and on the 7th day I, YAHUVEH, rested and commanded mankind to do the same. MY Son YAHUSHUA kept the Sabbath Holy and HE is called the Lord of the Sabbath. HE is an example how to keep the Sabbath Holy. MY Beloved Son YAHUSHUA was tortured and crucified with words nailed above his head no devil or man could remove and YAHSUHUA died and arose again on Hebrew soil from a Hebrew tomb.
Having said all of this, proving YAHUSHUA is a Jewish Risen MESSIAH, follow not the ways of the pagans and keep not the heathen festivals that YAHUSHUA did not keep. If it is not in the Holy Scriptures, why do you anger I, YAHUVEH, and add to MY Words and teach that the pagan days should be honored but shun keeping the days I, YAHUVEH, decreed as Holy and to be remembered as in the time of old?
You invite ME to your man-made holidays and yet why do you who say you follow, serve, worship, obey YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA and make excuses why this is only for the Hebrew People? Are you not Hebrew through accepting MY Son YAHUSHUA’s Blood at Calvary, as HE alone became the Blood Sacrifice for your sins?
Do you not believe HE lives now in you through the RUACH ha KODESH? To really know MY Son YAHUSHUA, you must get to know the Jewishness of your Risen MESSIAH. Why do you insist on calling YAHUSHUA ‘Jesus Christ’ instead of by HIS Hebrew Name, YAHUSHUA which is a constant reminder to satan that YAH saves. Why do you insist on twisting scriptures in the Bible to make excuses why you do not Honor the True Sabbath Day and keep it Holy before I, YAHUVEH?
Is it really too much to set apart the time of Friday Sunset to Saturday Sunset and acknowledge this is the Sabbath Day and keep it Holy? When you do not know better you have an excuse, but after you know the truth and you do not let the truth set you free and say you are not under the bondage of the laws of old, what other commandment do you want me to toss out simply because it inconveniences you? Simply because others may not understand, if you are attending a Sunday Church and are not there to let the Pastor and congregation know they are in error for not teaching the Jewishness of the Risen MESSIAH, then I, YAHUVEH, call you a coward and you are held accountable.
“Behold, I make a covenant: before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of YAHUVEH: for it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.” (Exodus 34:10)
In this special Sukkot reading, Moses asks that YAHUVEH’s presence would go with Israel, and YAHUVEH agrees.
Encouraged by this positive response, Moses also asks to see YAHUVEH’s glory. Once again, YAHUVEH graciously complies with his request and invites Moses to ascend Mount Sinai with two newly hewn stone tablets so that HE can re-carve the Ten Commandments.
On the mountain, YAHUVEH reveals HIS glory to Moses in such a fearsome spectacle of power that YAHUVEH must protect Moses from being destroyed by it.
“There is a place near ME where you can stand on a rock. When MY glory passes by, I will put you in an opening in the rock. I will cover you with MY hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove MY hand. You will see MY back. But My face must not be seen.” (Exodus 33:21–23)
It’s clear that Moses, having experienced the power of the presence of YAHUVEH, understands that HIS presence is more than sufficient against any threat Israel might encounter inside or outside of the Promised Land.
Gog and Magog: Challenging the Restoration of Israel
“This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, MY hot anger will be aroused.” (Ezekiel 38:18)
In the Haftarah /prophetic portion for this Shabbat Chol Hamoed intermediate day of the festival of Sukkot, the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel describes an end-time scenario in which formidable armies from the north, under the leadership of Gog, will challenge the restoration of Israel.
Gog is a chief prince living in the land of Magog (Ezekiel 38:2). Many scholars believe Magog refers to Russia. The invading land of Gomer is often believed to be Germany.
Several lands in the coalition army are easily identifiable: Iran (Persia), Northern Sudan (ancient Ethiopia or Cush), Libya (Put), and Turkey (Togarmah).
Today, Russia has a “permanent” air base in Syria at Khmeimim and leases the naval base in Tartus.
Iran not only has military bases in Iraq and Lebanon, its radical regime has invested up to $100 billion in infrastructure and military operations in Syria over the last seven years, even building missile manufacturing plants there, according to The Jerusalem Post.
The nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38 will unite and come upon Israel “like a cloud that covers the land” for the purpose of looting the wealth that she has amassed in what was a desolate land only seventy years ago.
Yet, YAHUVEH will not abandon HIS People. HE will utterly destroy the coalition forces of Gog so that all nations will come to know the holiness of YAHUVEH (Ezekiel 38:18–23).
The forces that come against Israel will be so large in their day of defeat that Gog’s weaponry will provide fuel for Israel for seven years
“They will not need to gather wood from the fields or cut it from the forests, because they will use the weapons for fuel. And they will plunder those who plundered them and loot those who looted them, declares the Sovereign YAHUVEH.” (Ezekiel 39:10)
Moreover, so many soldiers will die in this battle that it will take seven months for Israel to bury them all and cleanse their land (Ezekiel 39:12).
Sukkot and the Protective Covering of YAHUVEH
Why do we read about this end-time battle during Sukkot?
This war will be waged during the month of Tishri, the month in which the holy day of Sukkot /Feast of Tabernacles falls.
Interestingly enough, the war that is described in Ezekiel is similar to the war described in the 14th chapter of Zechariah, the Haftarah reading on the first day of Sukkot. And in Zechariah we learn that the Gentiles who survive the war against Israel will be required to keep Sukkot annually by coming up to the Holy City of Jerusalem to worship YAHUVEH.
“Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, YAHUVEH Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles /Sukkot. If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, YAHUVEH Almighty, they will have no rain.” (Zechariah 14:16–17)
Psalm 27 presents a clear connection between Sukkot and YAHUVEH’s protection of Israel and those who trust in HIM:
“For in the day of trouble HE will conceal me in HIS tabernacle /sukkah; In the secret place of HIS tent HE will hide me; HE will lift me up on a rock.” (Psalm 27:5)
The word translated here as tabernacle is the Hebrew word sukkah (סכה). When evil threatens YAHUVEH’s people, HE will hide them in HIS sukkah, inaccessible from the enemy on the rock of HIS presence.
Now that is a promise we can trust in during these last days!
The Battle of Armageddon
“When the thousand years are over, satan will be released from his prison, and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth — Gog and Magog — to gather them for battle.” (Revelation 20:7–8)
Gog and Magog are also mentioned in the Brit Chadashah /New Testament in connection with Armageddon and the final battle between the forces of good and evil.
This war with Gog and Magog is not the same war described in Ezekiel 38 but a final end-time battle after the thousand-year reign of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach .
The Son of David, YAHUSHUA, will come again — this time as our conquering Messiah to defeat the invading forces forever. All who have believed in their Savior, YAHUSHUA, will inherit eternity in the New Jerusalem — a revived Garden of Eden complete with trees of life and pure living water that will be good to eat and drink forever.
Armageddon is mentioned only once in the Brit Chadashah /New Testament in chapter 16 of the Book of Revelation.
“They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of YAHUVEH Almighty…. Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:14, 16)
The word Armageddon is derived from Har Magedon /meaning mountain of Megiddo and is mentioned many times in the Tanakh /Old Testament.
Megiddo is derived from the Hebrew word gadad, meaning to penetrate, muster troops together, perhaps even invade.
In this end-time invasion, we once again see Israel’s enemies mounting a war against Jerusalem. This time, however, we see the spiritual forces behind the rebellion against YAHUVEH:
“They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.” (Revelation 9:11)
The words Abaddon and Apollyon mean Destroyer.
And this time, YAHUVEH pours out on the Destroyer and all rebels the full extent of HIS judgment, including everlasting torment for satan, the beast and the false prophet.
“They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of YAHUVEH’s people, the city HE loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And satan, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” (Revelation 20:9–10)
With an Outstretched Arm
As we read how YAHUVEH will hurl HIS fury against Gog with pestilence and with blood, floods, giant hailstones, fire and brimstone, it’s easy to see from this Haftarah portion that YAHUVEH is furious with those who come against the Land of Israel (Ezekiel 38:22).
In fact, there are several parallels between YAHUVEH’s deliverance of Israel from Egypt long ago and His future deliverance of Israel from Gog in the end times. In both, we see that YAHUVEH saves and rescues Israel with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm.
The phrase with a strong hand and an outstretched arm
(בְּיָ֣ד חֲ֭זָקָה וּבִזְר֣וֹעַ נְטוּיָ֑ה) has special meaning in Jewish tradition. It represents YAHUVEH using HIS power on behalf of HIS people. The “arm of YAHUVEH” also represents HIS salvation, which in Hebrew is YAHUSHUA.
“You brought your people Israel out of Egypt with signs and wonders, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with great terror.”
(Jeremiah 32:21, see also Deuteronomy 4:34; 26:8; Exodus 6:6)
As Russia continues its influence in the region and as neighboring nations plot to annihilate Israel, there is certainly evidence that Ezekiel 38 is on the horizon. Yet, this Sukkot Parasha reveals that YAHUVEH’s Divine Sheltering Presence over Israel has not ended but will continue past the end of this age.
YAHUVEH is not finished with the Jewish People and Israel. This is plainly evident when we consider how Bible Prophecy concerning Israel is being fulfilled during these end times before our very eyes.
The Brit Chadashah /New Covenant also tells us that YAHUVEH’s plan to reach out to the nations through Israel did not end with the death and resurrection of YAHUSHUA the Messiah, but continues to this day and will in the world to come:
“For if their casting YAHUSHUA aside means reconciliation for the world, what will their accepting HIM mean? It will be life from the dead!”
The Book of Romans promises that when the Jewish People come to know YAHUSHUA, it will be like life from the dead for the world.
Before this can happen, however, they must first hear the Good News of YAHUSHUA!
“How can they call on HIM unless they believe in HIM? How can they believe in HIM unless they hear about HIM? How can they hear about HIM unless someone preaches to them?” (Romans 10:14)
“Hear the word of YAHUVEH, you nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands: ‘HE who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over HIS flock like a shepherd.'” (Jeremiah 31:10)
