The Well of Salvation & Sukkot

Oh blessed one, shout for joy and pleasure victorious one, because great and awesome is the Holy One, our Rock within our midst!

Let's contemplate the fulfillment of scripture ...

There is a Jewish feast in the month of Tisri - end of September on the true date of the birth of Yah'shua, Jesus. The feast is called Sukkot, the feast of tabernacles when all Israel erect temporary shelters along side their homes to stay in during the feast. They walk about with palm leaves and a variety of offers are supposed to brought before the Lord (yet without the existence of their temple). During the feast of 8 days God's redemption of the nation of Israel from slavery out of Egypt is celebrated along with the 40 years they wandered in the wilderness. During this time they stayed in temporary shelters until ultimately Joshua (meaning- God saves) lead them into the promised land - all very interesting for a nation beholding the shadow of things to come ... of things that already came - look and llok but do not see - listen and listen, yet do not hear, [ironically this is exactly what Jesus said in John 7:33-39]. But what does it mean?

Let's have a look and see:

By the end of September 2011 years ago the Almighty Creator God, YHVH manifested and tabernacled  here on earth amongst man and gave a FULL revelation of His Redemption Plan - Jesus - Yah'shua, fulfilling in FULL the feast of Sukkot in the finest of details imaginable!

Let's see:

Joh 7:37-38:
v 37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

v 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

It is on day 8 of the feast of Sukkot and during the priestly rituals that Jesus cried out these words.


Yah'shua was in Jerusalem during the Sukkot (read John 7:32-39. On the last day of the feast the Jews would break free from their melancholy and proceeded in dancing and singing.  Isaiah 12 is recited over and over (we'll look at this in a minute, because it-will-blow-you-away!).

The priest performs a prophetic action, the meaning of which he himself did not even fully understood. He would draw water with the golden vessel from the pool of Siloam, just outside the walls of Jerusalem whilst specifically reciting Isaiah 12:3: "...with joy I draw water out of the wells of salvation ..." [amazing - the Hebrew word for "salvation" here is not "yasha" the word normally used in many of the Psalms, but instead the full word "Yah'shua") is used for salvation here]. Thus the priest had just uttered and used the full name of Jesus in the Hebrew whilst drawing the water and midst the shouts and recital of the people of Isaiah 12!

The priest would now make his way with much care not to spill the water towards the altar. At the altar the water is poured from the vessel simultaneously just as wine is poured from another vessel to mix on the altar - this is a perfect picture of Yah'shua on the cross, the Ultimate Offer! When Jesus uttered these words His timing was perfect. Not only does this show prophetically to what He did on the cross, but it also points to the outpouring of His Holy Spirit! Contemplate for a minute all that happened on the cross and there after ...

... against the background of all this, let us now consider Isaiah 12:

Isa 12:1-6:
v 1 And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.

v 2 Behold, God is my salvation [Yah'shua]; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH [YHVH] is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation [YAH'SHUA].

v 3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation [YAH'SHUA].

v 4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD[ HALLELUYAH], call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. [YAH'SHUA]

v 5 Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

v 6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion [authority - you who have the Holy Spirit]]: for great is the Holy One of Israel [he that prevails] in the midst of thee.

... better still, let's consider a direct translation, in TS:

Isa 12:1-6 TS1998:
v 1 And in that day you shall say, “I thank You יהוה, though You were enraged with me, Your displeasure has turned back, and You have comforted me.

v 2 “See, Ěl is my deliverance, I trust and am not afraid. For Yah, יהוה, is my strength and my song; and He has become my deliverance [YAH'SHUA].”

v 3 And you shall draw water with joy from the fountains of deliverance [Salvation - Yah'shua -  יהושע].

v 4 And in that day you shall say, “Praise יהוה, call upon His Name; make known His deeds among the peoples, make mention that His Name is exalted. [YAH'SHUA]

v 5 “Sing to יהוה, For He has done excellently; this is known in all the earth.

v 6 “Cry aloud and shout, O inhabitant of Tsiyon, for great is the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl [he who prevails] in your midst!”

... there is nothing more to say, except:

You who prevail in Yah'shua ... great is the Holy One Who lives in you!

U r greatly blessed!
U r dipped in the Fountain of His joy!
