Hi everyone! The Jewish celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles continues until Wednesday at sundown. One of the hallmarks of the most joyous of the Jewish feasts is eating meals and fellowshipping with family and friends in sukkot (temporary booths). For Jews, this commemorates their redemption from Egyptian slavery, when they lived in temporary booths as they wandered the wilderness on their way to the Promised Land.
Colossians 2:16-17 teaches us that the feasts and festivals God gave to the Jewish people are a shadow of what is to come. While Jews celebrate their freedom from Egypt (a worthy celebration), it is but a shadow. Jesus is the substance, as He fulfilled each of the seven major feasts commemorated by the Jewish people.
So, the Feast of Tabernacles currently being celebrated, is a foretaste of the Millennium when, after Israel’s national salvation (Romans 11:26), all nations will go up to Jerusalem to worship the King of Kings!
Some are getting a head start! The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is hosting the 38th Feast of Tabernacles celebration, attended by thousands of Christians from around the world! Imagine worshipping alongside brothers and sisters in Christ, from the other side of the world!
Did you know you can join in the action from afar? Events are being live streamed from Jerusalem, but if the 10-hour time difference makes it difficult to view live, watch “on demand” after the event is over. Events run through Wednesday evening!
Don’t miss out on the celebration! Chag Sameach!
