A reminder that our lives are to be lived under the protection and the sovereignty of God.
This Feast is part of the three great pilgrim Feasts of the Bible the other two being Passover and Pentecost (Leviticus 23:33-44). Essentially it is the Feast of the triumph of the Kingdom of God as it demonstrates the commitment of God’s people to God as Lord and King of their lives. It is for this reason that the Israelites were commanded to live in leafy booths for seven days in the wilderness. These were very fragile and could not protect one from the harsh desert conditions.
The lesson was clear; a lesson of unswerving trust that God would protect them and care for them. That is why the Feast Tabernacles is a picture of the Triumph of the Kingdom of God since it reminds us that our entire lives are to be lived under the protection and sovereignty of God.
For the past 39 years, Christians from all over the world have come to Jerusalem each fall to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles, sponsored by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem. They come to take part in a dynamic worship experience and to taste of the joy of the Lord in the age to come.
