THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES 2007
By Keith Hunt
I sit here at my Computer on Thursday, the 27th of
September, first day of the Feast of Tabernacles in the year of
2007. I've celebrated my 65 year upon this earth, just a few
weeks ago, on September 11th. It is a lovely sunny day outside
here in Calgary, Alberta. I'm blessed indeed to have great
physical health and strength, most people cannot believe I'm 65,
but I have since a young teenager, obeyed the laws of health, in
food, work, rest, exercise and sleep.
A lovely day of weather outside in Calgary, so my heart
sings with praise to the Lord as I meditate on the WONDERFUL
PROMISES in God's word concerning the AGE TO COME, the return of
Christ Jesus to this earth in POWER and GLORY, to establish the
Kingdom of God on earth, where all nations for a 1,000 years will
walk the straight and narrow path of the way and life of God. A
way of life that is not only joyful, but a way of life that
brings PEACE, and ALL good things. A way of life that gives
STRENGTH for all the adversities, trials, test, troubles,
difficulties, that may come along in this sojourn on earth.
I'm classified now as a "senior citizen" by the world. Well,
I do not even think about it per se, my age that is, but being
over 65 does give some "goodies" in this world. I get a discount
on this or that. I look back at all the things I've had the
privilege to do over my lifetime - wonderful. What a blessing
that I'm still able to do many of those things. I'm blessed to
have the eye-sight and the hands to type away. I'm blessed to
have a clear and sound mind to still study, in-depth, and
technically at times, the writings I upload to this Website. I
find it a great blessing to know there are people out there, like
yourself, who use this Website to grow in grace and knowledge of
the love and majesty of our Father in heaven and His Son Christ
I praise the Lord that my parents sent me to a "religious
school" at the age of 6. Our first half hour of each day, was
spent in reading the Bible. No deep doctrinal theology given,
just a reading of God's word. It was all a wonderful foundation
for what God had ahead for me.
What a time we are living in. The time of the end, but how
long God will allow for this end time, only He knows. It could be
another decade before Jesus returns, and then it could be any
number of decades. I would like to see Jesus come back in my
lifetime, but then many down through the centuries wanted that,
including the very first apostles of the NT church of God.
But PROPHECY is marching on. Here is a poem:
War-clouds gather throughout the world as the end of the age
draws near, Nations are filled with perplexity, men's hearts
are failing for fear, Pestilence, famine and earthquakes are
taking a dreadful toll, While Satan fights against God in
the struggle for Israel's soul.
The prophet Ezekiel tells us the outcome of World War Three,
And gives us a wonderful vision of peace that is yet to
When the King of Kings returns to earth to rule with an iron
rod, With the Government on His shoulders, enforcing the
Laws of God.
We are journeying through the Wilderness as our fathers did
of old, Learning through sore tribulation the only back to
the fold; Thou the road we take grows darker as we press on
towards the light, A glorious Dawn is breaking, The Kingdom
of God is in sight. (Muad E.Casson)
That day is sure as the rising of the sun. God has promised
it. The Kingdom of God will come to earth. Maybe in the lifetime
of my generation, then it maybe in our children's generation. The
dawn will come and light for all nations will come. Peace will be
on this earth one day.
Ye that have faith shall look with fearless eyes,
Beyond the tragedy of a world at strife,
And know that out of death and night shall rise
The dawn of ampler life,
Rejoice, whatever anguish rend the heart,
That God hath given to you the priceless dower
To live un these great times, and have your part
In Freedom's crowning hour.
That ye may tell your sons who see the light
High in the heavens, and their high heritage take
I saw the powers of darkness take their flight,
I saw the morning break (Youth Magazine)
Jerusalem, "the city of peace," is its meaning - will indeed
be so one day. The Prince of Peace will come. The prophets have
told us. He will come again and His feet in that day will stand
upon the Mount of Olives (Zech.14:4). All that He and Jerusalem
stands for and pictures, will come to all nations. An Englishman
and poet of fame, wrote about when England was visited by our
Lord and Savior, and how Jerusalem will be built in England's
And did those feet in ancient times
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the Holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon those clouded hills
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark satanic mills?
Bring me my bow of burning gold
Bring me my spear! O clouds unfold!
Bring me chariot of fire!
I will not cease from mental fight;
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.
The PROPHETS of old have much to say and teach us. I will
determine in my mind, and God willing, to expound to you all the
prophets of the Old Testament, as they relate for us today. It
will not be a verse by verse commentary, but an overview of those
prophets are proclaiming to the nations of the earth, to the time
of the end, when all that is written shall come to pass, and
shall find final fulfilment in the literal return of Jesus the
Christ, the Messiah, the Savior of the world.
I will start with Isaiah and work my way through to Malachi,
as God permits me the time.
This first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, is the time to
re-read Isaiah, chapter like 11, 12, 24, 25, 26, 27; 29:18-24;
35:4-10; 65:17-25; 66:15-24.
What a wonderful chapter is Isaiah 11.
"And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse,
and a Branch shall grow out of his roots (Jesus the Christ
this is telling us about). And the Spirit of the Lord shall
rest upon Him, the Spirit of WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING, the
Spirit of COUNCIL and MIGHT, the Spirit of KNOWLEDGE and of
the FEAR of the Lord. And shall make Him of quick
understanding in the fear of the Lord; and He shall not
judge after the sight of His eyes, neither reprove after the
hearing of His ears: But with RIGHTEOUSNESS shall He judge
the poor, and reprove with EQUITY for the meek of the earth:
and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth, and
with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked.
And RIGHTEOUSNESS shall be the girdle of His loins, and
FAITHFULNESS the girdle of His reigns.
The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard
shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion
and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead
them. The cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones
shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like
the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the
asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the
They SHALL NOT HURT NOR DESTROY IN ALL MY HOLT MOUNTAIN: FOR
THE EARTH SHALL BE FULL OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD, AS THE
WATERS COVER THE SEA.....(verses 1-9).
Friends, let those words comfort you, INSPIRE you, LIFT you
UP. Read them again! Does your heart leap for JOY? Do you get a
little "choked up" - maybe some tears fill your eyes, like they
are with me as I type all this.
There are so MANY passages on this promise in God's word. I
have given you a number of in-depth studies on this Website
regarding the AGE TO COME, the Kingdom of God on earth.
The world is so filled right now with pain, sorrow, crying,
death, sickness, starvation, deceptions of all kinds. It is
filled with hate, resentment, revenge, wars among the same
people, or wars between nations. It is a world of crime, rape,
child abuse, perversions, broken homes, immorality.
Well, you hear and see it on the TV news broadcasts each and
But, the day is coming when all things will be fulfilled,
that the prophets have written about, and that includes the END
of it all, THE BEST PART - THE COMING OF CHRIST AND THE KINGDOM
OF GOD ON THIS EARTH.
There is coming a time when nations will NOT LEARN WAR
ANYMORE! No more will they be bringing back our young men and
women from Iraq and Afghanistan in body bags. It breaks my heart
to see the wives or husbands, or parents and friends, crying at
the grave-sites of our fallen young people in battle.
There IS COMING a day when people and nations will no longer
have learning institutions devoted to the skills of how to kill
others. It's hard to imagine a world of nations with NO WAR
machines of any kind. It will start with the restoration of
Israel and Judah from their enemies and being brought back to the
Promised Land - Palestine - to inherit the land promised to
Abraham and his descendants. Israel and Judah will be ONE PEOPLE
again (Ezekiel 36-38). They will dwell in towns and villages with
no walls, no weapons of war and killing. God in the person of
Christ Jesus will be WITH them, DWELLING in their midst. The
saints of all ages will have been resurrected from the graves (or
in the twinkling of an eye changed from mortal to immortal - 1
Cor.15) and they will have met Jesus in the AIR, in the CLOUDS.
They have come down from the clouds of earth to be with Jesus as
He stands on the Mount of Olives (Zech.14).
At that time, will begin, the gathering of Israelites from
the lands of their enemies. They will come in an EXODUS back to
the Holy Land, like as it was to Israel in the day that he came
up out of the land of Egypt under Moses (Isa.11:15-16 and
David, the great king of ancient Israel will be resurrected
(as all saints will be) and all the peoples of Israel will under
David, SERVE THE LORD THEIR GOD!
From that time forth, they will never again need the
institutions that teach making war. Jesus will be their SAVIOR
AND PROTECTOR. Judah (the Jews) shall see their Messiah, they
will acknowledge WHO HE IS - they will see the nail marks in His
hands, they will acknowledge JESUS the CHRIST IS THEIR MESSIAH!
(Zech.12 and 13).
Then the final BATTLE of this age, the MIGHTY battle of
ARMAGEDDON (Revelation 16) will take place. Jesus will slay with
the word of His mouth (Zech.14) those who are destroying the
earth. The days WILL BE CUT SHORT, mankind will not obliterate
themselves from off the planet, but they surely would if Jesus
did not intervene and return.
The "beast" man and the "false prophet" of Revelation and
their 10 nations army, will be DESTROYED (Rev.17-19).
Oh, then the words will be fulfilled:
"And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of
the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. And he
laid hold on the dragon, the old serpent, which is the
Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. And cast
him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal
upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more till
the thousand years should be fulfilled ...
And I saw thrones, and they that sat upon them, and judgment
was given unto them: and I saw the lives of them that were
beheaded fore the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God,
and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image,
neither received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their
hands, and they LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND
So COME LORD JESUS. We wait the RESTITUTION OF ALL THINGS!
When all nations will observe the WONDERFUL FEAST OF TABERNACLES.
