On the Shabbats of October 8, 2022, October 15, 2022 and October 22, 2022, there will be no online Shabbat meetings. We will be in Jerusalem for the Feast and will be spending those Shabbats with our Ephraimite brethren who also will attend the Feast in Jerusalem. Please remember that it is a sad and excruciatingly painful ordeal to be cut off from Jerusalem. Exile is not the place to celebrate the Feasts but, rather, to mourn and cry out to YHVH for not being in His capital city where His light can shine through those who are able to attend. Those who are unable to go for any reason can pray toward Jerusalem and can mourn for their very great loss.
1Ki 8:44 “If your people go out to battle against their enemy, by whatever way you shall send them, and they pray to Yahweh toward the city which you have chosen, and toward the house which I have built for your name;
1Ki 8:45 then hear in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause.
1Ki 8:46 If they [YHVH’s people] sin against you (for there is no man who doesn’t sin), and you are angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captive to the land of the enemy, far off or near;
1Ki 8:47 yet if they repent in the land where they are carried captive, and turn again, and make supplication to you in the land of those who carried them captive, saying, ‘We have sinned, and have done perversely; we have dealt wickedly;’
1Ki 8:48 if they return to you with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their enemies, who carried them captive, and pray to you toward their land, which you gave to their fathers, the city which you have chosen, and the house which I have built for your name;
1Ki 8:49 then hear their prayer and their supplication in heaven, your dwelling place, and maintain their cause;
1Ki 8:50 and forgive your people who have sinned against you, and all their transgressions in which they have transgressed against you; and give them compassion before those who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them
1Ki 8:51 (for they are your people, and your inheritance, which you brought out of Egypt, from the middle of the iron furnace);
1Ki 8:52 that your eyes may be open to the supplication of your servant, and to the supplication of your people Israel, to listen to them whenever they cry to you.
Pray toward the city to repent for YHVH having to exile our ancestors and that we are still in exile and we can’t always make it to HIS celebrations. Spend your days during the Feast of Tabernacles in repentance and mourning so you will be gathered back to your land.
Zep 3:18 I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly [moed], who are of you, to whom the reproach [shame] of it [not being able to be at the moed] was a burden.
Folks, the sorrowful will be gathered, not those who celebrate YHVH’s wedding rehearsal in their own homes and home towns or in the places set aside by others. No Bride should ever tell her Groom that she will rehearse their wedding wherever she please; that He can go to His own city to rehearse but, instead, she will do their wedding rehearsal where she wants instead of where He wants! The real wedding Feast, Sukkot, will not be held wherever SHE wants! It will be held where HE commanded – Jerusalem!
