Beginning preparation at our friends’ Sukkah in Jerusalem on Sunday.
Sukkot begins shortly here in Israel. At sundown, we will all begin the holiday mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments. We read beginning in Leviticus 23:33 about the holiday and how to observe it. I encourage you to read it.
Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, is also mentioned in the New Testament. Beginning in John 7:2, we read about Yeshua going up to Jerusalem for the Feast. Even though the leaders are wanting to put Him to death, He still makes the journey, following the Torah. Passover, Shavuot and Sukkot are the 3 holidays in which one must make the trip to Jerusalem.
The Biblical holidays were important to Yeshua and should therefore be important to us. Can we observe them today in a Biblical manner? No. There is no Temple; the sacrifices cannot be made. But we should still pray that, through the leadership of the Holy Spirit, G-d will reveal to us how we should, individually, utilize the principles and truths of each holiday in a way which is honoring to Him.
May you have a Blessed Feast of Tabernacles.
