Feast of Tabernacles Services for 2017 will be held on Oct.5-12, 2017 in Newport, Tennessee.
This is an easy drive for those in the region of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, Cosby, Newport, Gatlinburg, Sevierville, Knoxville, Morristown, Greeneville, Erwin, Pigeon Forge, Johnson City, Bristol, Kingsport, Tri-Cities, etc. But people outside of this area are also welcome to attend. As long as you Love JESUS & want to serve & worship HIM in Spirit & in Truth & in accordance with the biblical commandments to observe the Feast Days, then you are welcome to attend. PRE-REGISTRATION TO ATTEND IS REQUIRED. This is a great opportunity for fellowship with like minded believers! We will have either sermon/worship services, bible study or prayer meetings every day. Plus we will also have daily cook outs, camping, prepping & survival classes, games, mountain nature trail walks & other activities! There is a playground for children and there is a licensed paramedic on the property! Most of your meals will be provided for FREE! We offer Spanish intrepretation & sign language for the deaf & hard of hearing at all events if requested.

Reason we call the Feast "The Fiesta":
When you look at the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek words for "feast" in relation to the Holy Days, these words actually do NOT mean a feasting of food, but rather a party, a celebration, which of course includes a feasting of food but is much more. The word "feast" is actually an English word and does not appear in the Hebrew & Greek scriptures. Neither does "fiesta", but the latin word "fiesta" more accurately & vibility describes what the Feast of Tabernacles is actually supposed to be. It's supposed to be a Fiesta, a celebration. The Spanish language is spoken by more people on Earth than any other language other than Chinese. So to use a word that is known to so many people, is a great way to reach the Latin American population with the truth. The Latin American and Mexican population is falling quickly for Islam. Islam is now the fastest growing religion among Hispanics. Islam is trying to evangelize everyone on Earth. The ministers of truth MUST also try to reach all people of all races and languages on Earth. The word "fiesta" is also one of the very few English/Latin words well known in the middle east. So by using the words "Fiesta of Tabernacles", we relay the true meaning of the word, while evangelizing more people on Earth, both Hebrew/Israelite and Gentile. For GOD is not willing for ANY man/person to perish, but for ALL to come to everlasting life.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE/LODGING:
If you need free or discounted lodging, please feel free to inform us as early as possible before the Feast & we might be able make arrangements for you to share someone's campsite for 1/2 price or free. If you are willing to share a campsite with someone who cannot afford their own campsite, please also let us know this. We are also providing many free meals & drinks throughout the Feast. If you need ADDITIONAL assistance with food, please let us know!

JESUS NAME ONLY
We make every effort to open our doors to sincere followers of Jesus Christ AND for those who are seeking, But we cannot compromise with what THE ALMIGHTY has revealed and we cannot compromise with evil, demonic pagan names which actually represent the devil.
The use of the pagan Assyrian Y names (yah, yahweh, yahshua, yehsua, Jehovah, etc) are strictly forbidden.
Click here to see solid undeniable, irrefutable PROOF that those names represent the devil.

BIBLES
We will be reading the Scriptures from the Alpha & Omega Bible. But you are welcome to try to follow along in KJV, NASB or other translation, OTHER THAN a Y name verson which is satanic.
Please click here to learn why The Alpha &Omega Bible is far more accurate than any other version widely available today.

CAMPING AVAILABLE & ENCOURAGED
There will be camping available for tents, campers and RV's. Or you may stay at a local motel or rent a cabin nearby. But we encourage you to bring your own tent (or purchase one when you get here) and stay in a tent (we have electric & water). But you are free to choose where you will stay.
There will be clean restrooms and hot showers. In the restrooms & bath houses, we will provide high quality toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, air fresheners, hand sanitizer, etc. I encourage as many people as possible to stay in tents BUT on sites with electric so that you can run a heater at night if needed. (Bring your own small heater, one safe to run in a tent). But we understand that a few people need to be in a camper, Rv, Hotel, etc. It gets pretty cool at night around here in October, you may want to bring blankets and a heater JUST IN CASE.

LIVE BROADCAST VIA PHONE & INTERNET
For those who are unable to attend, we always broadcast all of our High Holy Day Sabbath sermons.
But we will NOT be broadcasting the midweek Bible Studies, classes & recreational activities.

I will be more than honored to baptize you in Jesus Name during the Feast. Please click here to read about baptism and why it's not only important, but also required for salvation.

WHERE / LOCATION:
We are hosting the Feast of Tabernacles near Newport, Tennessee. But the exact location will remain unreleased to the general public. But it is within 1 hour or less drive from Morristown, Cosby and Newport,Tennessee. It is in the best interest of those attending if our services will be secure without interruption from any protesters or others trying to cause troubles, considering that our ministry is one of the most actively vocal against islam, gay marriage, demon-crats, etc. We seek to meet with LIKE minded brothers & sisters in Christ Jesus and to provide a venue for the Feast of Tabernacles for people who sincerely want to grow in the real truth. Therefore considering all things, I have concluded that it will be best to not release the exact location to the public. If you feel that you might be interested in attending, I encourage you to read as much of this website as possible to ensure that we are like minded and that you are sincerely interested in attending. Then fill out the pre-registration form and then I will call you and we will talk & if we are like minded, I will inform you of the specific location of the Feast. You will not need to make any camp site reservations unless you plan on staying at a hotel. I encourage as many people as possible to stay in tents BUT on campsites that have electric if needed to run your own heater at night if needed.
