The nations gathered in Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles, a preview of what the Bible describes during the Millennial Kingdom.
And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.~Zechariah 14:16
During the feast week, it has become tradition for Christians to march in the streets of Jerusalem, showing support and solidarity with the Jewish people. The parade of nations has grown over the past 40 years and included 5,000 Christians this year.
The prophet Zechariah went on to warn Egypt specifically of impending consequences of not going up to Jerusalem to enter in:
If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.~Zechariah 14:18
This year, for the first time publicly known, a delegation of Egyptian Christians joined in the Feast of Tabernacles celebration and participated in the Jerusalem March! Again, fulfillment of prophecy, right before our very eyes!
We are living in an incredible time in which we are seeing various end time prophecies coming to fruition. Whether it be stage-setting in Syria for the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy, the impending destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1), global preparation for the rise of the Antichrist, or the nations gathering for the Feast of Tabernacles, all signs tell us the rapture of the church is coming soon!
Meanwhile, we don’t have to be in Jerusalem to worship our King. Let’s do so as though the Feast of Tabernacles never ends!
