You may watch the recording or read the transcript below...

This is the last online service for the High Holy Days

If you missed the other services and don't understand why I did services for what seems like only Jewish holidays, please watch or read the Yom Kippur service...

For the second Sukkot and Shemini Atzeret service, I will wrap up the festival week and look closer at the meaning of Sukkot/Tabernacles and its last, 8th day, often called "The Last Great Day". I will also summarize how all the High Holy Days go with the life, ministry, and promises of Christ, and reveal how the major Jewish holidays all point to Christ for a reason. I will also talk about how you can miss out on God's promises, even though some are guaranteed.

Transcript 10/17/2022 11:26 AM
Good day or evening, wherever you are, in the name of the Lord. I’m Ty Alexander Huynh, Elder Minister and Teacher of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus. Welcome to the second Sukkoth/Tabernacles service, which also celebrates what is called Shemini Atzeret [“shee-mee-nee æt-sah-reth”], which means the “Eighth [Day] Assembly” or is sometimes translated as “The Last Great Day.”

This is also the last in a series focusing on the High Holidays or High Holy Days, which in Hebrew is called “The Days of Awe.” If you don’t understand why I conducted services around what only seems important to Jews, then please watch the service for Yom Kippur, and learn why Christians need to have a knowledge of Old Testament holidays. There is a link on the page for this service.

Last week, we started Sukkoth or what is translated as the Feast of Tabernacles, Booths, or Ingathering. I hope your feasts and celebrations during the week went well. In scripture, God called for seven feast days during Sukkoth, but I told you last week that I plan for eight feast days, because it is an eight-day remembrance (Leviticus 23:33-43; Numbers 29:12-38; Deuteronomy 16:13-15; Exodus 23:16, 34:22) where the last, or eighth day, has the final holy gathering or day of assembly. That gives this day the name, Shemini Atzeret - “Eighth [Day] Assembly.”

Many believe this day is a completely separate holiday from Sukkoth, but the Old Testament does not separate it. It is called the eighth day of Sukkoth in Leviticus 23, Numbers 29, and Nehemiah 8 (Leviticus 23:36; Numbers 29:35; Nehemiah 8:18), so it does not refer to a totally separate holiday. It’s only that feasts and living under temporary shelters are called for the first seven days, which seems to be why people separate Shemini Atzeret from Sukkoth. However, the two assembly days at the beginning and end of the holiday week are no different than the two days of assembly for Passover at the beginning and end of that holiday week.

So, Shemini Atzeret, today, is the capping off of Sukkoth and not a separate holiday. This separation into two different holidays may have been aided by the tradition of Simchat Torah, which is celebrated at the same time as Shemini Atzeret. Simchat Torah means “Rejoicing [in the] Torah [the Law or Teaching]” and celebrates the reading of the Law of Moses, but it is not a Biblical holiday. The first record of it appears in Jewish written tradition only since the 1st century A.D. and in Jewish law many centuries later[20,21].

However, Simchat Torah’s link to Sukkoth and Shemini Atzeret may have come from scripture for Sukkoth stating the Law of Moses is to be read in assembly during Sukkoth, At the end of every seven years, at the time of the year of remission of debts, [the Year of the Shemitah], at the Feast of Sukkoth, when all Israel comes to appear before Yahovah, your God, at the place which He will choose, you shall read this law in front of all Israel in their hearing. Assemble the people, the men and women and children and the foreigner who is in your town, so that they may hear and learn and fear the Lord Yahovah, your God, and be careful to observe all the words of this law. Their children, who have not known, will hear and learn to fear Yahovah, your God (Deuteronomy 31:10-13).

Simchat Torah may have also come from the time when the exiles returned to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple, and Ezra, the priest, read the Book of the Law to the people, He read from the book of the law of God daily, from the first day to the last day. And they celebrated the feast [of Sukkoth] seven days, and on the eighth day there was a solemn assembly according to the ordinance (Nehemiah 8:1-3, 8:18).

Wherever the tradition of Simchat Torah came from, it is not a holiday I observe because it is not in scripture, and furthermore, the details of the Law of Moses are not the center point for God’s People in the New Covenant Age. Shemini Atzeret or the Eighth Day is in scripture, though, but because God did not give much details for the second day of assembly at the end of Sukkoth, it ended up being much like Yom Teruah in having an unknown purpose and picked up traditions that God did not mean for it.

Something else that appears to have misconstrued Shemini Atzeret is church teaching that links it to Mashiach - Christ and the last resurrection of the dead at the end of Christ’s Millennial Reign (the next age), when all who were not resurrected in the first resurrection of the saints will be judged (Revelation 20:12-15). It is called the “Last Great Day” because of links to John 7, where Yeshua - Jesus speaks in Jerusalem at the end of Sukkoth, Now on the last day, the great day of the feast [of Sukkoth], Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water’’ (John 7:37-38).

However, if we continue in John 7, we see Christ is speaking of the Holy Spirit coming to indwell within His believers saved by the New Covenant, because, [In this, Yeshua - Jesus] spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (John 7:39). Christ was not speaking of resurrection, either of the saints or of the second resurrection - the promise prophesied by Ezekiel for the Jews which is where they get resurrection of the dead from the scriptures (Ezekiel 37:1-14).

Instead, I was guided to understand Shemini Atzeret as it pertains to the promise of reconciliation and eternal life in Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus. Last week, I noted how the first seven days of Sukkoth reflect living in judgment because of sin, since the call to make and live under sukkahs or tents is meant to remember those decades the Jews were made to live in temporary shelters in the wilderness because they had rebelled against God.

But Sukkoth is a celebration also, and so we remember how God kept His People safe and nurtured in the desert. God gave them crops of manna and blessings to celebrate, though they did not have all the abundance of the Promised Land, like bread and wine, God still cared for them so that their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell, nor did their sandals break in those forty years (Deuteronomy 8:4, 29:5).

And like that, today, God cares for us as sons and daughters through Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus, keeping us through difficulties despite our sins, we too can celebrate harvests and blessings in our wildernesses, but like the end of Sukkoth, and the end of wandering the desert and living in tents, the Promised Land opens to us in a renewal and resurrection, a new beginning, which is what should be celebrated today, on Shemini Atzeret or the Eighth Day, because in spiritual guidance, the Lord has taught me the number eight means renewal, resurrection, and a new beginning.

Yeshua - Jesus was resurrected on the eighth day of the week, if you don’t reset back to one. He rose after the Sabbath day, the seventh day of the week (Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:1-2; Luke 24:1; John 20:1), which also marks His resurrection on this eighth day as the first in a week and therefore also a new beginning.

God also shows the number eight’s link to renewal with Old Testament rites. For example, He wanted all firstborn sons and livestock in the Law of Moses presented to Him on the eighth day, The firstborn of your sons you shall give to Me. You shall do the same with your oxen and with your sheep. It shall be with its mother seven days; on the eighth day you shall give it to Me (Exodus 22:29-30). The first seven days were called the days or time for purification (Luke 2:22) and then on the eighth day, the firstborn were named and dedicated to the Lord, which the New Testament records John the Baptist and Yeshua - Jesus fulfilling in Luke chapters 1 and 2 (Luke 1:59-60; 2:21-23).

Another example is when Aaron and his sons were also consecrated and ordained as priests after seven days, and they emerged from the tent of meeting on the eighth day when the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people for the ordination (Leviticus 8:33, 9:1-9:23).

Later, we will see this seven days of purification and dedication after the eighth day again, in a holiday that is not considered one of the High Holy Days. But to continue speaking of how eight and renewal goes with Shemini Atzeret, perhaps most important, is how it links to Shavuot or the Feast of Weeks/First Fruits or what the church knows best as Pentecost. I spoke of Shavuot in the last service as being related to Sukkoth by its celebration of the very first fruits of the harvest at the beginning of the growing season, while Sukkoth celebrates the very end of the harvest.

But what does that have to do with eight and renewal? Shavuot comes in two parts. The first is an offering of those first fruits of the year on the day after a Sabbath of Passover (Leviticus 23:5-9). God linked this first fruits holiday to Christ by resurrecting Him on the Sunday after His Passover’s sabbath – the Passover He was crucified on. That was an eighth day of the week and a new beginning, which symbolizes the very first fruits of the first resurrection of the dead – the resurrection of the saints. So Mashiach – Christ was the very first resurrected of the resurrection promised by the New Covenant.

This is confirmed by the apostle Paul who said, Now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits… (1 Corinthians 15:20-23).

And then the second part of Shavuot is when the holiday is actually celebrated, seven weeks or 50 days after the offering of first fruits (Deuteronomy 16:9-10; Leviticus 23:15-16), which is when Pentecost happens, and when Christ’s work in the New Covenant was fulfilled through the giving of the Holy Spirit in completeness to believers. This too was a first fruits in that, that very first Pentecost for the church showed the beginning of the Holy Spirit’s working of power in believers of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus.

So if Shavuot and Pentecost go with the first fruits of resurrection and power of the Spirit through Christ, then Shemini Atzeret at the end of Sukkoth celebrating the final harvest of the year, must go with the final harvest of Christ when the rest of us are resurrected at the Lord’s return. This is what most in the church recognizes as the Rapture.

But why doesn’t Shemini Atzeret or the Last Great Day go with the second resurrection of the dead, like some in the church teach? It’s because of the work of Christ and the New Covenant being symbolized by all the High Holy Days, as well as other Old Testament holidays, such as Passover and Shavuot or Pentecost since we can see how they also connect and coincide in time with the life and work of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus and the New Covenant. These are works of reconciliation and eternal life.

The second resurrection of the dead, on the other hand, is not related to that work, but is for everyone who did NOT make it into the Book of Life through the New Covenant or other acts of righteousness, such as Abraham, Moses, Elijah, and many others in the Old Testament are known to be already saved in heaven. Moses and Elijah appeared to Yeshua - Jesus and the disciples in the New Testament (Matthew 17:1-4; Mark 9:2-5; Luke 9:28-33), and they will come with the Lord when He returns with His angels and holy ones in the Rapture at the end of this age (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10), not the end of the next age when the second resurrection of the dead happens (Revelation 20:7, 20:13).

The New Testament also often uses the phrase the last day to mean the day of the Rapture or first resurrection of the dead (John 6:39-40, 6:44, 6:54, 11:24, 12:48) and not the second resurrection of the dead. The second resurrection is also not of guaranteed renewal and prosperity, which the first resurrection promises and what Shemini Atzeret is meant to celebrate, because the second resurrection is when the Judgment occurs, and all who were not already guaranteed into the Book of Life will be judged by they did in life (Revelation 20:12-15). The New Covenant cannot save them at this time, and even angels will be judged (2 Peter 2:4-9; Jude 1:6-7).

The work of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus and the New Covenant is all about guaranteed promises – our eternal salvation and resurrection with a place in heaven assured, so long as we keep faith and public loyalty to Christ. What do we hold so dear in faith and secure in hope even through death, if this is not true?

And so to line up with all this, it is natural to see that Shemini Atzeret is about holding our faith in God to give His promised renewal, resurrection, and prosperity in the spiritual Promised Land of New Jerusalem. This sequence is confirmed by Paul if we continue in 1 Corinthians 15, which I began to quote earlier, But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death (1 Corinthians 15:23-26).

Paul is speaking of Christ’s return and the end of this age, when He takes control of the kingdom for God during the Millennial Reign – the next age - until all His enemies are under His feet and death is abolished, which will only happen at the end of that reign after Satan is defeated for the very last time, and death, also, is swallowed up to make way for the New Heaven and Earth which comes after the end of the next age (Revelation 20:7-21:4).

Now I hope you see all the connections the Old Testament holidays have with the life and promises of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus. God hid these connections in scripture for thousands of years until it was time for them to be revealed and be understood. And so, may you embrace this and rejoice today, on Shemini Atzeret - the eighth and last day of Sukkoth, to remember the Lord’s promises are sure, and keep hope in His lovingkindness and renewal, which is real and everlasting prosperity and renewal that often comes after much trial and tears.

This happened for the Jews after the 40 years of roaming the desert wilderness, when the Lord finally let them come into and take over the Promised Land. For all of us today, I pray the Lord brings His renewal and blessings in our lives today, as He remembers us and shows His lovingkindness to those who remain faithful and loyal.

Not everyone gets to see this renewal, though, as I talked about missing out on God’s assured promises.

How can that be? God’s promises are sure and true, aren’t they? Yes, His unconditional promises are, like His promise to Abraham that his descendants would possess the lands around ancient Canaan forever, and His promise to never again destroy the earth by flood.

But not all get to see God’s assured promises. Recall, not even Moses and Aaron got to enter and live in the prosperity of the Promised Land. God punished them for disobeying His command to speak to the rock at Meribah, so that water would come forth for the people. Moses and Aaron died before the Lord led the people into the Promised Land (Numbers 20:23-29; Deuteronomy 3:26-27, 34:1-8).

And if you remember the last service, I talked about the scouts sent to survey the Promised Land, but most of them made a bad report and got the people to rebel against the Lord’s plan to take Canaan. Those people, too, did not get to live in the assured promise of God. He said He would not let anyone who rebelled see the Promised Land. They would die in the wilderness where He sent all the people for 40 years (Numbers 14:28-30). I told you during the last service to remember that during your week of Sukkoth.

Throughout the years after Egypt and before entering the Promised Land, the people time and again grumbled against God and His anointed, and so they fell by the tens of thousands, at times, such as during Korah’s rebellion to usurp God’s authority in Moses and Aaron (Numbers 16:1-17:13), and when they grew sick of eating manna (Numbers 21:4-9).

During the last service, I also connected Sukkoth’s week of remembering living in tents and through hardships to go with our times living in great trials and tribulation now. These times are testing all peoples and many are falling because their sins do not grant them enough blessing of protection. In the fallen are believers of God and Christ, so even though God’s promise of eternal salvation in Christ is sure, remember it is for the next life.

That was a distinction I brought up during the service for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Temporal atonement (salvation, deliverance, and healing) in this life is a different matter and is handled separately from the New Covenant. Those concerns are why God has emphasized His teruah alarm call over the past year to urge His People to continue leaving behind sin that is common among believing communities – to leave that Harlot Babylon – the mystery God had me reveal in His Alarm on last year’s Yom Teruah (http://3rdCompass.org/go?GODS-CORAL-ALARM).

Since then, the Lord gave much proof of the truth of that Harlot Babylon and how believers are a part of her, and are falling in today’s tribulations. But to remind you of God’s lovingkindness, which I told you to also remember during Sukkoth, I will say that the Lord will bless and protect those who acknowledge the truth and come out of the Harlot Babylon I described. She is no country on a map, but is defined spiritually, like New Jerusalem is also defined spiritually.

The part of the church who will be protected in our times today is described in Revelation 12. There it says, the Woman, the Bride of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus, was given the wings of a great eagle and fled into the wilderness, to a place prepared by God for her, so she would be kept safe for 1260 days (three and a half years) or a time, times, and half a time (Revelation 12:6, 12:14).

This time, times, and half a time goes with a period of double the length, a seven or week prophesied by Daniel (Daniel 9:27), which is at the end of our age. This last time, times, and half a time is widely acknowledged to be the worst of the Great Tribulation, of which Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus said, When you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet standing in the holy place… There will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will again (Matthew 24:15-21).

This may not be new or even alarming news to most of you who are long believers, but I speak of missing out on God’s assured promises for reason today. Not only are God’s People falling in tribulations already, when that last seven at the end of this age has not started, yet many tribulations related to that time have already begun. Believers who remain in the sins of the Harlot Babylon will continue to fall along with the rest of the world, just as those who rebelled against God in the people’s time living in temporary shelters did fall. They would not see the Promised Land, and today, many believers will not have the wings of a great eagle and be able to fly to the place of protection prepared by God for the worst that is coming.

These unprotected believers or the Bride of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus that is not kept safe during the time, times, and half a time, will be persecuted by the man of lawlessness and the beast, for it says in Revelation 12, Satan will be enraged after trying to attack the protected Bride and leave her to make war with the rest of her children - those who keep God’s commands and hold fast to the testimony of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus (Revelation 12:14-17).

This speaks of the final antichrist, the man of lawlessness, attacking and defeating the church and all believing communities during the 1260 days or last half of Daniel’s seven, which is also called a time, times, and half a time (Daniel 7:25, 7:21-22; Revelation 13:7). When these days end, the world will see this man of lawlessness, who is part of that beast that comes out of the abyss; he will kill the Lord’s two anointed olives trees, His two witnesses who will have prophesied during those 1260 days in which the protected Bride of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus will be kept hidden and safe (Revelation 11:3-10).

But the rest of the Bride’s children (Revelation 12:17), the unprotected communities of believers, will face the antichrist and worst of the Great Tribulation because they won’t heed all of God’s warnings to leave the Harlot Babylon. God will destroy her with great violence (Revelation 18:21) and it will be in these time, times, and half a time. This is why God has repeated the alarm to come out of her, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive her plagues, for her sins are piled up to heaven and God has remembered her crimes (Revelation 18:4-5).

If you remain with the Harlot Babylon, then you may count yourself as one who missed out on an assured promise of God. It is not the promise of eternal salvation in Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus, but is the promise of protection for His Bride with the wings of an eagle (Revelation 12:6, 12:14).

This is relevant for our holiday today, The Eighth Assembly Day or what can be called the Last Great Day of Renewal and Resurrection, because those who listen to our one true God and remain loyal to Him and not the Baals, the imposter Gods of the Harlot Babylon, they will be hidden and safe until the Lord returns, when they, too, will transform and be resurrected as He was, in the twinkling of an eye and rise up into the clouds to meet Him (1 Corinthians 15:51-55; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17).

During the 1260 days, the protected Bride with wings, will have the walls of New Jerusalem manifested as its name actually means – the spiritual City of Peace will be peace and keep safe those who left the sins of the Harlot Babylon before the 1260 days of great woe and trial begins. You will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not (Malachi 3:18).

Please stand now and worship. Don’t go away after the music. The service will continue afterwards.

[Shemini Atzeret – The Last Great Day]


The Lord is truly faithful. During these High Holiday services, you saw how God worked many Old Testament holidays to coincide with the work of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus. The first in this series, Yom Teruah – the Day of Trumpets or Shouting, went with the birth of Christ and His anointment as King to bring a new age.

Then Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement, went with Christ’s ministry and death to bring the New Covenant and atone for our sin. And last week, we saw how Sukkoth remembers times of hardship because of sin, but also celebrates God’s continued love and care for us despite it.

And finally today, the end of Sukkoth and remembering hardships, Shemini Atzeret – The Last Great Day, when we can celebrate the hope and coming of God’s best promises of renewal and eternal life. So remember God’s great promises in Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus and work so that you do not miss out on any of them. With that in mind, may you have a feast with more luxurious foods after service today to celebrate this Eighth, Last Great Day.

At the end of the Israelites’ life in the desert tents, God said, I have led you forty years in the wilderness; your clothes did not wear out on you, and your sandal did not wear out on your foot. You did not eat bread, nor did you drink wine or strong drink, in order that you might know that I am Yahovah, your God... You stand today, all of you, before Yahovah, your God… that you may enter into the covenant with Yahovah, your God, and into His oath which Yahovah, your God, is making with you today, in order that He may establish you today as His people and that He may be your God, just as He spoke to you and as He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Deuteronomy 27:26, 29:5-6, 29:12-13).

They renewed covenant with God that day, but that was the Old Covenant – a blessing and a curse (Deuteronomy 30:1, 30:19; Nehemiah 10:28-29; Galatians 3:10), made for society many thousands of years ago. However, the Law of Moses is still in effect if one wishes to follow it (Matthew 5:17-19; Galatians 5:3), but it is not meant for today.

Over two thousand years ago, Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus came to change the laws of God’s kingdom and all people, For when the priesthood is changed, of necessity there takes place a change of law also (Hebrews 7:12), and Christ was established forever to uphold the change of law, as the Lord has sworn and will not change His mind, ‘You are a priest forever,’ so much the more also, Yeshua - Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant (Hebrews 7:21-22; Psalm 110:4) with better promises, as we have seen in our discussion of the High Holy Days and other Jewish holidays.

And if you are a non-Messianic Jew who stumbled upon this service because I speak of holidays you cherish, you will want to take even deeper note, because the work of Christ speaking through God’s Hebrew holidays is also meant for you to leave behind the old ways and come to Yeshua.

The next Jewish holiday in the season is not one of the High Holy Days, but is nonetheless important for our Jewish brethren. Hanukkah commemorates the re-dedication of the second temple in Jerusalem after it was freed from Greek-Syrian occupation in the 2nd century B.C., but something most Jews don’t know is, Hanukkah also has ties to Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus and the New Covenant.

How is that possible? Hanukkah celebrates the miracle of renewing lamp oil that was needed to re-dedicate the temple. The dedication ritual required the menorah lampstand to be lit for eight days (there’s the number eight again used to symbolize renewal), but after taking back the temple, they found they only had one day of oil on hand. They decided to light the menorah anyways and found the lamps kept burning for the whole eight days.

God gave the miracle of renewing oil to re-dedicate the temple, but most people don’t realize that when Christ tore down the temple at His death (John 2:19-22; Matthew 26:61; Mark 14:58) and replaced it with the temples of our bodies, He was fulfilling another miracle in the New Covenant – that of giving the Holy Spirit to indwell in every believer, which is God’s everlasting miracle-oil dedicating all of us as new temples to the Lord, for do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Acts 2:38).

It was God in His love and grace, who gave the miracle of oil for the temple of stone and wood, and it is God through His love and grace in Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus, who gives the miracle of dedicating the temples of our bodies with the Holy Spirit.

None of us can have a part in these graces of God with our own power, and I hope our Jewish brethren realize, you too, cannot abide in God’s eternal grace and lovingkindness so easily as coming to Christ, for remember, the law you try to live by is a curse if you are not careful to observe all the words of this law which are written in this book, to fear this honored and awesome name, Yahovah, your God, then the Lord Yahovah will bring extraordinary plagues on you and your descendants, even severe and lasting plagues, and miserable and chronic sicknesses… even [every curse] that is not written in the book of this law, [the Torah] (Deuteronomy 28:58-61).

So instead of continuing in the curse of the Law of Moses, made for standards of life long gone with ancient times, not for today, and which must be fulfilled by priests giving daily offerings and blood sacrifices in God’s anointed temple, which also can no longer be fulfilled, for the temple of stone and wood is gone and God did not anoint priests since the destruction of the temple to fulfil the old Law.

Can you now see the mass of evidence the Adonai Yahovah, your God and ours, is giving you through so many alignments with the purpose of Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus in the Law and old traditions you uphold?

Come out of those ways, for they have been corrupted by millennia of false teaching, and as I said, the Law cannot be fulfilled without the regular sacrifices, the temple of stone and wood, or the anointed priests.

Trying to live in the Law corrupted by man has you in the Harlot Babylon, just as your Christian brethren are in the Harlot for their iniquity and loyalty to their false teachings. Come out, all of you, and acknowledge your God and Savior through Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus and His straight and true ways.

Thank you all for taking part today. We will end this service with some psalms commonly used during Sukkoth and Shemini Atzeret.

When the Lord Yahovah brought back the captive ones of Zion,
We were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter
And our tongue with joyful shouting;
Then they said among the nations,
“Yahovah has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us; We are glad.

Restore the captives, O Lord Yahovah,
As the streams in the South.
Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting.
He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed,
Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

(Psalm 126)

Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord Yahovah.
Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
If You, Lord Yah, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness in You, that You may be feared.

I wait for Yahovah, my soul does wait,
And in His word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord Yahovah;
For with the Lord there is lovingkindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

(Psalm 130)

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brothers to dwell together in unity!
It is like the precious oil upon the head,
Coming down upon the beard,
Even Aaron’s beard,
Coming down upon the edge of his robes.
It is like the dew of Hermon
Coming down upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the Lord Yahovah commanded the blessing - life forever.

(Psalm 133)

The Lord bless and keep you with joy and renewal today and through the rest of the year, through Mashiach Yeshua – Christ Jesus. Amen. We bless and praise Your holy name, Father God. The kingdom, power, glory, and honor belong to You! Amen.
