THE FALL BIBLICAL FEASTS
PART 26 of 26
SIMCHAT TORAH
 
Yesterday, a high Holy sabbath, was the eighth and final day of the Feast of Tabernacles. This completed the final Biblical feast for the religious year for the Jews. God called them “His” feasts because they were given to Israel by God Himself to observe every year.
 
However, it is not the end of their special religious holidays and observances. Hanukkah and Purim were added by man even though they are mentioned in scripture up through Jesus’ time on earth. They celebrate specific historic events of Israel.
 
Simchat Torah (pr. Sim-khat Toe-rah) is another observance added by Jewish leaders during the Middle Ages. Simchat means “Rejoicing.” Torah is the first five books of the Old Testament which we call the Pentateuch. The Jews also call it “The Law.”
 
It is celebrated the day after Tabernacles is completed, essentially adding a ninth day to the biblical feast. It means “Rejoice in God’s Word (Torah, or Law). The Torah is the very foundation of Judaism. It has held them together as an identifiable religious and ethnic group for 3,500 years. It would be an appropriate consideration for them to add a celebration in special observance of the Torah which began around the 9th to 12th century A.D., varying according to geographical locations of the diaspora.
 
Persecutions of the 14th and 15th centuries caused them to intensify their focus on the Torah. This brought a fervent increase in their celebration with much singing and dancing. However, the main focus of Simchat Torah is the reading of the Torah publicly in their congregations. Everyone is given an opportunity to read a portion out loud. To conclude it, the last part of Deuteronomy is read to show completion for the old year. Then the first part of Genesis is read to start the new year of reading.
 
While the Jews venerate the written word, Torah, we Christ-followers have the Living Word within us. We have so much more “word” in which to “rejoice” (Simchat). We do not need one special day to “rejoice” in the Word (Simchat Logos) because the Word (Logos) indwells us every day.
 
Philippians 4:4 says, “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I say, rejoice!”

HOW IS YOUR FAITH TEMPERATURE?
 
In the book of Hebrews it says, …“But without faith it is impossible to please him (God)...” Again, we see in the book of Habakkuk Ch. 2:4, “Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.” It is repeated in the New Testament in Hebrews 10:38 where it says, “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any many draw back my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”
 
Faith is an absolute priority in a believer’s life. Yet, many don’t know how to get faith. The scriptures tell us, “So then, faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17) Just hearing the word of God can build up your faith. It comes through listening to anointing preaching, but also just speaking it loud to yourself brings faith. The book of Jude tells us in verse 20, “But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” This means our faith is built up when we pray in unknown tongues. Glory, God doesn’t want us to be without faith! He has so many ways for us to receive it. 
 
Even though this is what God wants us to have, many often neglect growing a healthy faith. They are like an un-watered plant that is dry. They are spiritually thirsty and don’t even realize it until they are so parched that they are often spiritually dehydrated and defeated in their Christian walk. If their spiritual temperature were to be taken it might show it was cold and close to death. Hot moist ground causes seed to grow physically, and hot moist ground allows the word of God to grow spiritually in us too.
 
Keep yourself well-watered with the Word of God, and your faith temperature will always be “hot.”
