Brethern, in the Name of Yahshua Messiah, our Saviour and King.
The Festival of Tabernacles is here this month, it will be
celebrated, in Hyderabad, at the Medipally assembly of Yahweh prayer hall,
from Oct. 22-29. All of good
will are welcome to attend. We
plan on having morning and evening meetings, literature distribution, and
showing of Bible video's.
festival of Tabernacles points forward to Yahshua Messiah's return, when
He will Tabernacle with His people in the New Yerushalayim for 1000yrs.,
see John 14:1-3; 1Thess.
feast of Tabernacles also celebrates the birth of our Savior Yahshua
Messiah, being that He was born about this time of the year.
John 1:14 says, "And the Word became flesh, and tabernacled
among us," (The Interlinear Bible)
Diety left heaven and tabernacled in human flesh for thirty-three
and a half years, "and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only
begotten of the Father". Humanity
recieved a revelation of the Law of Yahweh, lived out, in human flesh.
16:13-15 says, "Thou shalt
observe the feast of Tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered
in thy corn and thy wine: And
thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and
thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the
fatherless, and the widow, that are
within thy gates. Seven days
shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto Yahweh thy Elohim in the place which
Yahweh shall choose: because
Yahweh thy Elohim shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the
works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice."
Notice Yahweh says that a man's whole family was to come for seven
days and rejoice, because of the
blessings He had given them.
The feast of Tabernacles actually had eight days,
Lev.23:36,39 and the eighth day was referred to as the last great day by
the Apostle John, Jn. 7:37. It
was as if this day was completely different from the preceding seven;
this is because the eighth day symbolizes the reunion Yahweh will
have with His saints in the new heaven and earth.
It took alot of planning for the ancient Israelites to be
able to travel and keep an eight day festival.
The travel was not as easy as it is today and much time and money
had to be expended in the endeavor, but Yahweh enables us to do all that
He requires and He gives blessings to those who diligently seek to know
and follow His ways, Dt.11:13-15; 28:1.
Here in India the worshippers of Hindu gods will dress in black for
many days and make great expense in traveling to some place in Kerala for
many days to do puja to their god. If
they are this diligent in doing worship to pagan gods, how much more
diligent should we be to worship the one true living Elohim*?
I pray that all will be making plans now to keep the upcoming

Name Telugu Bible Translation Project
work of translating the Bible into Telugu with the Hebrew Names of the
Father and Son is in going forward under the hand of G. B. Ben Oni in
Eluru, W.G. Dt. A.P. We are
attempting to translate from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek
languages as closely as is possible and practical.
At present the books of Genesis and Daniel have been completed.
Hebrew through Telugu Medium
A new booklet has
been written that teaches the basics of the Hebrew language through the
medium of Telugu. This book is
at the printers right now and we hope to have it available sometime in
October. It has been written
by Mr. Joseph Kennedy of Palakollu, W.G. Dt. A.P.
If any would like to recieve a copy of this booklet, send 30Rs. to
the address at the end of this newsletter.
Yahweh created mankind all people spoke one language, but because man
rebelled against Yahweh and sought to establish a coalition without Him,
Yahweh changed the languages of the peoples, that were in rebellion, to
keep them from establishing their lawless goals, Gen. 11:1-9.
Thus the many different languages that we have in the world today
were the result of man rebelling against Yahweh.
In order to bring His people back into unity in the last days,
Yahweh promised to return to all peoples a pure language that they might
call upon His Name and serve Him in Unity.
Zeph. 3:9 says, "For then I will restore to the peoples a pure
language, That they all may call on the name of Yahweh, To serve Him with
one accord." NKJV, (sacred Name restored).
is this pure language that mankind has lost?
What was the original language that all mankind spoke in the
was the ninth generation descendant of Shem(Noah's son), but yet, Shem
outlived Abraham, as Shem lived to be 600 years old, whereas Abraham only
lived to be 175. Abraham is
called a Hebrew man in Gen. 14:13. In
order for Abraham to be able to communicate with his great
great...grandfather Shem, he would have needed to speak the same language.
Since Abraham was a Hebrew man it makes sence that his
"grandfather" Shem was also.
Where else would Abraham and his forefathers have learned
righteousness, than from grandpa Shem?
So we see that Hebrew was the original language that was spoken
before the confusion of the languages at the tower of Babel.
This is the language that mankind lost, that Yahweh promises to
restore to the peoples of the earth. Zeph.
3:9 says that the purpose for restoration of this language, is that the
peoples of the earth may serve Yahweh in unity and call upon His Name.
So now we see the
reason for learning the Hebrew language.
Yahweh's word to mankind was originally inspired in Hebrew and by
learning Hebrew you can more perfectly learn Yahweh's will and thus come
into harmony with your Creator and your
Fundamental Belief – YHWH's Name
Last month we looked
at the first fundamental belief of the Assemblies of Yahweh, this month we
will look at number two. Why
do the Assemblies of Yahweh put so much emphasis on the original
pronunciation of the Name of the Father?
Is it a salvational issue? The
third of Yahweh's ten commandments says, "Thou
shalt not take the name of Yahweh thy Elohim in vain; for Yahweh will not
hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain."NKJV(Hebrew Name and
title restored). The third
commandment is basically telling us that we should not have anything to do
with the Name of Yahweh in a light, frivolous, desolating way, His Name
should always be used with utmost respect and reverence, Ps.111:9.
the Biblical definition of the word "name" include
pronunciation? A study on the
word "name" in the Scriptures, will show that the definition
includes authority, reputation, person, power, spelling, and
pronunciation. Many Bible
verses show that the definition of the word "name" includes
pronunciation, see Ex. 15:3; Ps.83:18;
etc... Being that the Biblical
definition of the word "name" includes pronunciation,
pronunciation of the Creators Name is a part of the third commandment.
times whenever the spelling or pronunciation of a name is changed it also
changes the meaning, for example Yahweh changes Sarai's name to Sarah,
Sarai means dominative, where as Sarah means princess.
This was a small, but significant change, as it changed the whole
meaning of her name. The name
Jehovah was made up about 500 years ago and all scholars know this is not
the Creators original Name. The
word "hovah" actually means, ruin- mischief according to Strongs
Concordance #1943. Being
that sin is transgression of the law of Yahweh(1Jn.3:4) and no willing
sinner will be saved, the issue of the correct pronunciation of the
Fathers Name is a salvational issue.
authoritative Hebrew reference sources give the correct pronunciation of
the Creator's Name as Yahweh. The
Brown, Driver and Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon, page 217, says-
"Yahweh - the proper name of the God of Israel.... The pronunciation
Jehovah was unknown until 1520, when it was introduced by Galatinus...."
A thirteen page
article has been written by brother Tony Suckla, that gives all reference
sources on the Father's true Name and it can be sent via snail mail or
email by contacting the address at the end of this letter.
Response from a
A reader of the
first issue of this newsletter, responded by saying, "I feel that the
strict observance of the annual festivals of Leviticus is not warranted
now... Our Messiah, though he had much to say about the sabbath, was
silent about the annual feasts!..."
"Yahshua Messiah observed the feasts and He is our example,
Jn.7:10, 14, 37; 4:45;
When Yahshua acsended to heaven He said, go teach all
nations..."teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I
commanded you" Mt.28:19,20. Yahshua
said that we should do and teach even the least of the commandments, Mt.
5:19. Being that the annual
festivals are part of the commandments of Yahweh, it is part of the law
that Yahshua has commanded us to do and teach.
see also Mt. 23:23; Lk.16:10.
