Last day of Sukkot 5769

Just about to head out to the Holy ground for the last day of Sukkot.  For those who thought that Sukkot was over 2 days ago let me remind you of Gen 1:14

Genesis 1:14 (NJB)
14 God said, ‘Let there be lights in the vault of heaven to divide day from night, and let them indicate festivals, days and years.

The new moon was sighted 15 days before Sukkot started…  see my post Yom Kippur …. the controversy.

Brenda and I have come to realize that Christmas is a forgery of this festival.

We have had a fantastic joyous time and met many new friends and got re-acquainted with old ones these past 8 days.

TWOT: Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament

Most commonly, it is used in connection with the Feast of Tabernacles. Once a year the Israelite left his home to tabernacle in a “booth,” made from tree branches (Leviticus 23:34ff.). The feast marked not only the joy and thankfulness of a grateful people for God’s provision at the end of the agricultural season (Leviticus 23:39-41), but was to be a perpetual reminder (Deut. 16:13ff.) to the people of God’s care for his own whom he had rescued from Egypt during those long years in the wilderness (Leviticus 23:42-43). The feast was closed by a day of rest, featured by a holy convocation, marking not only the climax of the religious year but symbolizing the rest of the believer in his God (Leviticus 23:39). Prophetically, the feast finds final fulfillment in that grand day when God will raise up the fallen booth of David (Amos 9:11) and give shelter to his repentant, redeemed, and regathered people (Isaiah 4:6).

What a joyous day THAT will be!

Brenda and I didn’t build a Succa this year but we did participate as much as we could in the teachings and festivities.
