This evening started the Feast of the LORD known as ‘Sukkot’ in Hebrew or ‘Feast of Tabernacles’ or ‘Feast of Booths’ in English. It is commanded to rejoice during this feast. This afternoon, Jerry and I made our own ‘Lulav’. A Lulav is a collection of three branches used to rejoice which consists of the myrtle, the willow, and the palm tree branch. If you have followed along our journey, then you know God has used this particular feast to reveal more and more truth to us. To get an overview of how, check out our ‘Walk His Way’ story on the home page of our website flipflopfellowship.com. Soon, I hope to make a video of the various revelations that have unfolded and how God used the ‘Lulav’ to help teach me some important things. Happy #Sukkot, ya’ll!
In this episode, Carrie reveals what she has gleaned about prophets who prophesy through music and how a musical prophet can change the atmosphere or cleanse hearts and homes using worship.
Meanwhile, Carrie also realized something spoken over her as a baby is prophetic and pertains to who God (Abba Father) created her to be. “Carrie” means “Songs of Joy”. Her full name, “Carrie Renee..” was printed in a church bulletin the first time her parents brought her to church as a baby announcement. An elderly woman walked up to my parents and said, ” ‘Reen-e’ (Renee)! What a nice name!” Ever since, Carrie’s nick name has been “Reen”. Interestingly enough, there is a Hebrew name “Rena” pronounced “Reen-a”, which means “joyous song”. Today, Carrie sings prophetic joyous songs over people that she calls Lullabies of Love as Abba sings through her to His children.
(Recorded June 23, 2019) Carrie shares an update on how the LORD is using them lately in Texas and what is being revealed about purpose, operating in the prophetic, deliverance…
Learned something new this week. The Ruach (Holy Spirit) continues to blow me away as He reveals more and more particularly about the Feast of Tabernacles. That feast has been a central theme to our journey as He takes us from new land to land.
In the Feast of Tabernacles, also known as Sukkot in Hebrew, a ‘lulav’ was waived while the people rejoiced much like a flag in today’s worship services. The lulav consists of three different tree branches all woven together. Each branch has symbolism and meaning, but more on that to come…
Amazingly, the 1st place Abba (Father in Hebrew) took us to upon calling us to follow Him was Myrtle Beach, which matches the 1st myrtle branch in the ‘lulav’. Then, after 18 months, He led us to Kemah, Texas, which not only means ‘tabernacle’, but has palm trees everywhere matching the 2nd piece of the ‘lulav’. Makes me believe the final destination will be connected with the 3rd piece of the ‘lulav’ which is the willow tree. I wonder where that will be… In His time and His way, He will reveal it. In the meantime, we rejoice where we are at all the while learning and growing more as His servants. It was neat to discover too how the palms used just before Passover is connected to Sukkot (see post below).
Have a great weekend and Shabbat Shalom! 🌴
This upcoming Sunday is Palm Sunday according to Christian tradition. Did you know when the Jewish people used palms shouting, “Hosanna” as Jesus/Yeshua rode the donkey several days before becoming Passover’s sacrificial lamb, that they were recognizing Him as the Messiah (John 12)? They had witnessed many miracles including the resurrection of Lazarus and so they believed Yeshua/Jesus was the Messiah. However, the Pharisees or religious leaders of that day, were blinded by their own religious doctrines and interpretations of the Scriptures and quickly took action to hide the truth from the Jewish and Gentile people.
In the Feast of Tabernacles, the last fall Feast of the LORD (Lev.23), the Israelites would wave the ‘lulav’, which is a branch made up of a myrtle tree, a palm tree, and willow tree bound together. In that feast, also known as ‘Sukkot’, the Israelites are commanded to rejoice and celebrate the arrival/return of Messiah. They would sing praises shouting “Hosanna” and “Blessed is He who comes in the name of YHVH”. Many scholars have notated that Jesus/Yeshua was most likely born during the fall Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot , according to all the Biblical facts provided, and will one fine day return during Feast of Tabernacles. Sukkot/FOT also represents the millenial kingdom reign of Yeshua, the Messiah.
Isaiah 53 fortold the Messiah as a gentle, humble servant or lamb in His first coming, while Isaiah 65-66, Zechariah 14, and numerous other passages including the Book of Revelation portray Messiah returning as a fierce and just lion in His second coming.
The religious leaders back then expected the Messiah to be more like a roaring lion making all things right and holy, but instead He was a loving lamb. Today, many religious leaders portray the Messiah as a loving, hyper-grace lamb chop, who doesn’t mind sin, when in reality, according to Scripture, He will return as a roaring lion correcting, judging, and revenging according to what He calls sin verses holiness while making all things right.
May we continue to seek Him and His Word for ourselves so we are also not deceived by these latter days religious leader’s teachings and thereby unable to know our Messiah nor recognize His holy and just judgment at His return to rule and reign.
