Post #95 FEAST OF TABERNACLES, SUKKOT [THE 7 FEASTS OF ISRAEL] PART 12
[Lev 23:34-36, 39-43]
[OLD TESTAMENT FULFILLMENT]
The Feast of Tabernacles, also known as Feast of Booth and Sukkot, is a timely reminder to Israel to celebrate their transition from Egypt to the Promised Land. This was the time when Israel were dwelling in tents and wandering for 40 years in the desert. For 7 days, Israel sleep outside under the stars in tabernacles made of tree branches. Feast of Tabernacles also marks the end of the harvesting season. And all Hebrews celebrates this feast with great joy and rejoicing.
[NEW TESTAMENT FULFILLMENT]
This feast prophecies of our time of transition on this planet. Where Christians dwell in bodies that are subject to the law of physical nature and decay. To a future time when all believers in Jesus Christ will resurrect with a new spiritual and immortal body. This feast reminds us of God resting in us and our resting in Him. Tabernacles is the 7th feast and the last feast. This final feast points us towards the fullness of redemption. This feast lasted 7 days, is celebrated on the 7th month and is the 7th feast commanded by God upon Israel.
When the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is revealed to us in their fullness on the Day of the Lord, all Christians will experience the full spiritual joy, peace and rest.
[2 Cor 5:1-2]
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven.
