Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles)

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

Happy Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) everyone! This is a time when we reflect and thank God for freeing us from the slavery of Sin and Death. Just as God saved the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt , he did the same for us at the cross through Christ

Jesus is the fulfillment of Sukkot, he made his dwelling/tabernacle among us! Many believe that Jesus was actually born during this time appointed holy time, which would make sense and explain his fulfillment

During the Exodus the Israelites faced many trials during there journey through the wilderness, however God always provided! The foreshadows of Christ were present throughout this journey

Exodus 16:4 Bread of Life

4Then the LORD said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain down bread from heaven for you. Each day the people are to go out and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test whether or not they will follow My instructions

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35

Exodus 17:4- Living Water

6Behold, I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb; when you strike the rock, water will come out of it for the people to drink.”

Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'” John 7:37-38

Jesus is our Bread of Life and Living Water, just as he fulfilled during their journey. Jesus even declared this during the celebration of Tabernacles in John 7

 

And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle (dwelling) of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, Revelation 21:3

Jesus is coming back, and hes going to make his permanent dwelling with us! Give praise to our Heavenly Father , the Holy Spirit, and our Lord Jesus Christ Amen!
