Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

May they prosper who love you

Ultimate Rest

Tonight at sundown the weekly holiday of Sabbath begins.  This Sabbath we can look forward to the ultimate rest which the Feast of Tabernacles pointed to.

God’s Unique Relationship with Israel

As we complete the yearly cycle of the celebrations our focus is drawn to the finality of history and the eternal Kingdom of God.  But until that day the celebrations remind us of the goodness and faithfulness of God.

Celebrate Yeshua!

Each of the celebrations of the Lord commemorates an event in Israel’s history.  They also have their ultimate fulfillment in Yeshua. 

Joyful Sacrifices

Two unique features characterize the Feast of Tabernacles:

Great joy. Three times God says to rejoice.
Number of sacrifices

The Final In-gathering

Tabernacles (Sukkot) is the last of the pilgrim festivals, the celebration of the final in-gathering. Therefore we see its prophetic significance as the in-gathering of all the nations, to Jerusalem and to the Lord.

Simchat Torah

Today is another double holiday.  Last night at sundown the weekly Shabbat started.  And today is the 8th and last day of Sukkot which is to be a solemn assembly with LOTS of sacrifices. 

Yeshua’s I AM

Yeshua celebrated the feast of Tabernacles and used symbols of light and water to declare who He was – Israel’s Good Shepherd.

The Symbol of Water

Water was crucial during Israel’s journey, first the parting of the Sea and then as they trudged through the desert.

The Symbol of Light

There was a full moon the day Israel left Egypt.  But the pillar of fire of God gave them light and protection.
