THE SEASON OF OUR JOY! THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD HAS ARRIVED!
YESHUA the Messiah, the Son of G-d, IS that light.
Born last night in the Sukka 2023 years ago.
“The Light of the World” is the four HUGE torch lights seen in the Court of the Women in the attached image.
These torches were ONLY lit during Sukkot, which started last night.
These HUGE torch lights could be seen easily from Bethlehem, just a few miles away. They were lit with hand-held torches, which were made of staves with “swaddling cloth”, strips of linen from the old robes of the priests.
THIS was the ‘sign’ given to the shepherds who were tending their flock, IN THE EARLY FALL, the last grass, NOT in the dead of winter [dec 25].
Thirty-three years later, Yeshua left Har HaZetim [Mt of Olives], where olive oil for lamps was made, and entered the Sanctuary, and was in the COURT OF THE WOMEN, when they threw an adulteress at His feet, and He pardoned her for her sin. This was the day AFTER the ‘water pouring ceremony’, when the scripture is cited, “You, O Mikveh [immersion pool] of Yisra’el, יהוה ! All that forsake You shall be ashamed; they that depart from Me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken יהוה , the fountain of Mayim Khayim“, and Yeshua had JUST declared HIMSELF to BE Mayim Khayim! [Jo 7:38, on day 7 of Sukkot]
On the EIGHTH DAY, the DAY of REJOICING in the TORAH, the anniversary of the day He was circumcised and given His earthly name, Yeshua, “Salvation”, He sets the adulteress free from her sin, and then declares:
“I am the LIGHT OF THE WORLD; he who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but He shall find for himself the light of LIFE.” [Jo 8:12], standing under those four torches.
We are now in the ‘day’ of Yeshua’s birth! TODAY. The first day of Sukkot.
It is indeed the SEASON OF OUR JOY!
