Sukkot

It’s another Feast Day and the second blood moon of four. This one falls on Sukkoth and the eclipse was early this morning in the states.

Sukkoth is also known as the Feast of Booths or Feast of Tabernacles.

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord. On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it. For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it. Lev 23:33-36

It is a time of great celebration after the solemn Yom Kippur – Day of Atonement.

The Jews build temporary shelters to celebrate the occasion and Jesus was familiar with the day.

Now the Jews’ Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. John 7:2

You go up to this feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, for My time has not yet fully come. John 7:8

Jesus has not yet fulfilled this Feast but the day is coming when He will.

It is written,

“Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Rev 21:3-4

To me, this is the final great act of God – to dwell with us and give us great comfort. It’s like coming home to security and reassurance.

Jesus is our Tabernacle.

Abba, I long for the fulfillment of the last three Feasts. Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus. YES&AMEN
