Posted - 23 Sep 2015 : 22:50:30 The following is posted with full hyperlinks here: http://www.preparingyou.com/wiki/Feasts For further insight and follow up, on the link above, you will be able, I hope, to grasp and understand using the hyperlinks, and most important, your dilligence :)
"Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:" Deuteronomy 16:16Most people celebrating tabernacles have no Living Network of Ministers who are supplying a Daily ministration, no Apostles norLevites serving the people as living altars. Some will dress in costumes and mumble Hebrew words and imagine they are righteous because of their outfit and funny words but who has a network practicing Pure Religion through Faith, Hope and Charity by way ofFreewill offerings of the people, for the people and by the people through the Perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies like both Israel and the Early Church?
How many people will come to support those minsters of a kingdom that keeps the people from having to turn to the Benefactors who exercise authority one over the other?
How many men, Elders in Congregations which a minster to tens will keep Deuteronomy 16:16 "Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:"
Many will come empty except for the meals they will eat at the feast. I can assure you that few will follow Deuteronomy 16:17 "Every man [shall give] as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee."
And who will give so that the ministers can form a FEMA type living network in war or peace to help the people near and far? We know that if you only love those in your family and your local group there is no Grace.
Most of the people who go to Feasts like Tabernacles are not doing anything different than those who celebrate the 4th of July.
Why do you Celebrate the 4th of July?US Citizens today are the most dependent people that ever lived on the American Continent but they are celebrating their independence day and the truth of their bondage goes right by their heads.
Can any one say they abide by Ezra 3:4 "They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as [it is] written, and [offered] the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom, as the duty of every day required;"
The people of all nations gather for protection against natural and menacing catastrophes. How that protection is provided is dependent upon the hearts of the people. If they have the heart of Cain and Nimrod they will give according to the commands of Nimrod, or Pharaoh or Caesar.
But if they have the heart of Christ and John the Baptist they will share out of love and charity. This is what they did in Israel because there was no king but the head of every house. To remain free as a nation they need to choose to give to their public servants to provide for the common Welfare. These two Welfare types define the nature of the nation. One is free and the other by force.
We see in Leviticus 23:34:
"Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month [shall be] the feast of tabernacles [for] seven days unto the LORD. : 35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. 36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein. 37 These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day: 38 Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the LORD."It took lots of work and funds to train up a servant government and lots of love for one another to motivate that funding without force. Only those who have faith in the ways of God and His righteousness shall be free souls under God. Those who are slothful in these sacrifices will end up under tribute.
