Celebrate Sukkot!
(Sukkot = Temporary Dwellings)

Our King lived in a temporary dwelling, The Tabernacle, with His people while they lived in tents. He resided in The Temple with His people in The Land. He put on the tabernacle of humanity to live among us, taking the form of a servant in order to die for us, and He was raised to new life in a new body. He promises His people a new life and a new body. When He comes again, He will live with us, giving us power to reign with Him. Then, all that is temporary will pass away, and we will dwell with Him forever.

Our Messiah Savior came to save us! Our Messiah King is returning to deliver us!

THIS LIFE IS TEMPORARY. THE LIFE YESHUA GIVES US IS ETERNAL. THAT'S WORTH  CELEBRATING!

Read on to see what we've got planned this year, don't miss out on this exciting time!

We welcome families, couples, singles, and children with parent/guardian.

    1. We eat and serve meats that comply with Biblical standards but which do not necessarily have a kosher designation. For example all hotdogs are beef, chicken, or turkey. Same for any pepperoni, sausage, or bacon we serve or eat. Thank you for the opportunity to clarify!

    1. Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts. You make a valid point. Using Jewish holidays and symbols to get people to accept Christianity would be fake. Several hundred years ago, religious persons used pagan days and symbols like Christmas, Easter eggs, etc., to make Christianity attractive to pagans, and many well-meaning Christians still use these to make Christianity appealing to the culture; this, too, is fake.

      YHVH says: Deuteronomy 13:13 … do not inquire about their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods?—that I also may do the same.’

      But what about the days and symbols YHVH created? Genesis 1:14 says Yah created the sun, moon, and stars for signs, seasons, days and years. The word translated “seasons” is the same word translated “appointed feasts” in Leviticus 23:1-2: YHVH spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, These are the appointed feasts of YHVH that you shall proclaim as holy convocations; they are my appointed feasts.

      Sukkot (Celebration of Tabernacles, a.k.a. Booths or Temporary Shelters), Sabbath, and other Biblical holy days are not Jewish inventions; they are YHVH’s celebrations. He calls them “my appointed feasts.” And He not only invites us to attend; He insists that we participate in them. He never made these appointments with only the Jews. He made these appointments with all His children. They’re family celebrations.

      Most people, if they have an elderly relative who dearly wants the family to celebrate certain holidays together, make a special effort to attend. Most people keep doctors’ appointments. So if the Eternal One, our Heavenly Father, the Great Physician of our lives wants us to keep these appointments with Him, we’d be faking our love for Him and our confidence in Him if we ignored these celebrations, YHVH’s holy days, and symbols He gives us to point to the Messiah.

      YHVH made these appointments with all of His people, Israel, not just with the tribe of Judah (Jews). Anyone who trusts Yeshua/Jesus with his or her life is born spiritually into the family of YHVH. John 1:12-13 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

      Israel received the invitation, the mandate, to celebrate these events. All of us who trust our lives to Messiah Yeshua are adopted into the community of Israel and made an heir to all the promises. Here are just a few of the many Scriptures that tell us that all YHVH’s people are called Israel:

      Jeremiah 31:33 (also quoted in Hebrews 8:10)
      For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

      Ezekiel 36:26-27 (spoken to the “house of Israel”)
      And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.

      Romans 11:25-27
      Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written, “The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob; and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.”

      Galatians 3:29
      And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

      If we aren’t part of the Israel of YHVH by faith in Messiah, we have no promises and no hope.

      Sukkot (Celebration of Tabernacles, a.k.a. temporary dwellings) is one of those holy days of YHVH that He wants His family to celebrate in memory of how He came to live with His people in the Tabernacle (Tent of Meeting) and later came to live with His people in the tabernacle of a human body, Yeshua/Jesus. He wants us to celebrate His Presence in us now as His Holy Spirit lives in the tabernacles of our human bodies. He wants us to rehearse the joyous celebration of Yeshua’s return to live with us and reign over all the Earth as King.

      YHVH’s holy days and symbols point to Messiah Yeshua as The Way, The Truth, and The Life. It is through Yeshua that we are restored to fellowship with YHVH. Anything else is a fake.

  1. I’m excited to spend the Holy Days and entire festival of Sukkot with My Family at Yah’s Restoration Fellowship! Hopefully the warden says yes to our Assembly bringing a special Feast meal into the Assembly inside one of the TDCJ Units!

  2. My family and I will be there and are excited to celebrate this feast with friends and family in Messiah! We can’t wait to see you there!!!
