Since it is still Sukkot, the seventh and final feast of the Lord found in Leviticus 23, I have decided to share more about the feast. This particular morsel of revelation was shared with me on Shabbat Sukkot (Saturday, Oct. 3) at Baruch HaShem Messianic Synagogue by Rabbi Marty.
Friday at sunset begins the Festival of Sukkot (pronounced: sue-COAT, also known as Tabernacles or Booths), the last and most joyful of all the Lord’s holidays. It is a time of intense celebration and joy because God has given us the Promised Land. And so, during this time of joy, we remember what it was like to live in the desert so we can appreciate the land we have now. But Sukkot has always held special significance not only for Jews, but also for the Gentiles. Indeed, the Torah, the Prophets, the Writings, and even the New Testament uses Sukkot as a picture of the future Messianic times. By studying Sukkot, we can get a glimpse of what Heaven will be like!
