John 1: 14 says, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” The Greek word translated as dwelt, skenoo, actually means to tabernacle or to pitch your tent. Literally, John 1: 14 says that the Messiah pitched His tent and tabernacled with us. Also, remember that one of the Messiah’s Names is Immanuel. (Isaiah 7: 14) The literal meaning of Immanuel is “God with us.” Both of these verses point to Sukkot. The Feast of Tabernacles is about Yahweh taking on human flesh and tabernacling with His people the way He did in the wilderness when He led the Children of Israel out of Egypt.

The Messiah is the Word of Yahweh—Part 2

Psalm 29 uses the Name “Yahweh” and the “Voice of Yahweh” interchangeably and hints at the fact that they are One and the same Person.

In the King James Version of the Old Testament, the exact phrase the “Word of Yahweh” appears 255 times, and it appears 58 times in the book of Ezekiel.  Most of the time, it is used this way:  “The Word of Yahweh came to me…”  If we read quickly, we will inevitably interpret this phrase to mean that someone, Ezekiel as a case in point, simply heard words, but this is not always the case.  In fact, when this phrase appears many times it refers to the Messiah appearing in Person and speaking to someone.

For example, Jeremiah 1: 4 begins this way: “Now the Word of Yahweh came to me….”  Then in Jeremiah 1: 9, Yahweh stretched out His hand, touched Jeremiah’s mouth, and said, “I have put My Words into your mouth.”  Therefore, the “Word of Yahweh” referred to in Jeremiah 1: 4 must be Yahweh Himself.  A few verses later Yahweh said, “I am watching over my Word to perform it.” (Jeremiah 1: 12)  In other words, the Person called the “Word of Yahweh” is watching over Yahweh’s literal words to make sure all of them come to pass.

Psalm 18: 30 hints at this truth as well: “As for God, His way is blameless; the Word of Yahweh is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.”

Does the phrase the “Word of Yahweh” in this verse make reference to Yahweh or His literal words?  Since this verse is about Yahweh, it is reasonable to conclude that the “Word of Yahweh” refers to the Person Yahweh.

SnyderTalk® Commentary

Today’s commentary is a Bible lesson.  Since Sukkot (also known as the Feast of Tabernacles and the Feast of Booths) is right around the corner (October 4-12), I thought you might want to read up on it.

Most Christians don’t celebrate Sukkot, but a growing number of them are beginning to recognize the importance of the Jewish roots of their faith.  That group in particular sees celebrating Sukkot and other Jewish festivals as enjoyable.  Truth is those festivals are as much Christian as Jewish, so it’s the right thing to do.

For your information, Yahweh commanded us to celebrate certain festivals every year, including Sukkot, and the Messiah was probably born during Sukkot.  I’m not going to delve deeply into that subject, but I will say this.  It is a provable fact that the Messiah was not born in December.  The decision to celebrate the Messiah’s birth near the winter solstice was made in the fourth century A.D. for political reasons.  The Roman Emperor Constantine thought celebrating the Messiah’s birth during the festival for celebrating the birth of the Sun god would help him to institutionalize Christianity as the religion of the empire and to consolidate his power.

Take a look at John 1: 14—“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  The Greek word translated as dwelt, skenoo, actually means to tabernacle or to pitch your tent.  Literally, John 1: 14 says that the Messiah pitched His tent and tabernacled with us.  Also, remember that one of the Messiah’s Names is Immanuel. (Isaiah 7: 14)  The literal meaning of Immanuel is “God with us.”  Both of these verses point to Sukkot.  The Feast of Tabernacles is about Yahweh taking on human flesh and tabernacling with His people the way He did in the wilderness when He led the Children of Israel out of Egypt.

Pray about it and see what happens.  In the meantime, below are several items that will fill you in on the essential facts about Sukkot.

  1. You spread untruths mixed with truths. He will have you account for it.

    You persuade the vulnerable to think as you do. It is not Jesus’ way. He would have nothing to do with your people as they think.

  2. Be more specific. If you think I’m wrong, tell me where you think I’m off base. Your blanket statement is so general that it’s useless to me. I’ll be happy to address specifics if you can point them out.
