Happy Feast of Tabernacles 2012

1 Comment

We want to wish everyone a happy Feast of Tabernacles which begins at sundown this Sunday, September 30th and ends at sundown Saturday, October 6th.

Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles is celebrated each fall, and commemorates the time that the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness before entering the promises land. Traditionally, individual families build small huts on the streets or on their rooftops (as shown above), and shielded them with palm and willow branches.

The Feast of Tabernacles (Hebrew: Sukkot) is the last of the seven biblical feasts which were commanded by God to be observed each year. It is also known as the feast of ingathering.

Leviticus 23:1-2; 33-36 instructs us to keep the Feast of Tabernacles as a perpetual holiday:

“And Yahovah spoke unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, concerning the feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts…The fifteenth day of this seventh month (according to the biblical calendar) shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD…”

Traditionally, the followers of God have built temporary booths outside their homes where they will intermittently pray, worship, and partake of family meals for seven days. Before Christ’s advent, this feast reminded the children of Israel of God’s goodness and provision for them during their 40 years of wandering in the desert after they had escaped their bondage in Egypt. Today, those of us who are followers of Christ the Messiah, it reminds us of our escape from the bondage of sin and our current journey in this world as strangers and pilgrims as we await the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. When Jesus comes again, both Jewish and gentile believers will rejoice when He returns during the Feast of Tabernacles and establishes His earthly eternal reign as the King and Lord of all the world. The tabernacle of God will finally be with men according to Revelation 21:3…

“And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

You shall rejoice before the LORD.

According to Leviticus 23:39-40, the Feast of Tabernacles was the final harvest feast of the year and a joyous time of thanksgiving. People rejoiced and carried braided switches made of a willow branch, palm branches, and bits of myrtle, which they waved about as symbols of God’s harvest blessing. When the final harvest of souls occurs just before the return of Christ, we too will enjoy a great time of rejoicing as we behold the second coming of Christ and the establishment of His millennial kingdom.
