Under The Sukkah: with scripture reference to The Feast of Tabernacles
The Feast of Tabernacles is the last of the three Fall feasts which are commanded of God in the book of Leviticus. They are the culmination of the seven holy anointed seasons which the Israelites celebrated as recorded in the Bible. Jesus, his family, the disciples all attended the feasts at the temple in Jerusalem. They are times on God’s calendar which are of great importance to Him. This great Feast points to a time in the future when all of God’s people will worship Him on earth. His presence will be among us. His glory will be so intense that there will be no need for the sun and the moon. It will be a time of great celebration and joy. Oh, how His people will sing Halleluiah to The King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, will reign on the throne. The story told here references the scriptures which describe The Feast of Tabernacles. Lottie’s vision is intended to show the symbolism between the living water and the light of the world, both of which refer to Jesus, as they were portrayed in the early temple ceremonies. Jesus “tabernacled” with us when He came to earth and walked, ministered, healed, and prayed. One day He will return to dwell with us. We celebrate now knowing that the day is coming! We look to the heavens and say, “Holy is the Lamb, who was, and is, and is to come!” We sing and shout, hosanna to God in the highest, worthy is The Lamb. Praise King Jesus, may we shake, shake, shake the lulav to the east, south, west, north, up and down in anticipation of the glorious celebration that is to come.
