Feast of Tabernacles VA 2016
The Feast of Tabernacles, also called the Feast of Booths, Sukkot (Hebrew for booths), and the Season of our Joy, is one of the three "pilgrimage" festivals listed in Leviticus 23, along with the Feast of Unleavened Bread (with Passover), and Sha'vuot (Greek: Pentecost), that believers in the first and second century continued to observe as part of the walking out of their faith in the Messiah Yeshua.
This festival commences on the 15th day of the 7th month on the Biblical calendar and lasts for 7 days. It looks back to the "wanderings of Israel" before they entered the "promised land" and looks forward to the "7th Day", that is, the Millennial Kingdom, where the prophet Zechariah stated that all the world would be observing this joyful festival for a Thousand Years here on earth (14:8-21).
This will be a time when the people of all nations will learn how to walk out our Heavenly Father's instructions and experience the resulting blessings (Isaiah 2:3).
After the seven days, there is the final festival of the Biblical calendar year, one day long, called Sh'mini Atzeret, the 8th Day, that teaches us what life will be like in the era beyond the Millennial Kingdom, the New Heavens and the New Earth.
Concerning the Feast of Tabernacles, it is interesting that our Heavenly Father "commands" that when we gather, we are to wave the lulavim and we are to rejoice! And when we do gather, there will be families, singles, kids, and adults, all rejoicing together. What a wonderful time for Celebration, Praise and Worship, Davidic Dancing, Blowing the Shofar, Fellowship, Breaking Bread, and Learning from different teachers about what Paul taught us in Colossians 2:17 when he said: "The Festivals, New Moons, and Sabbaths contain a foreshadowing of things to come..." And this was 30 years after the resurrection!
House of David Fellowship (RVA) will be hosting a Feast of Tabernacles gathering October 16th to October 24th at the Bethpage Camp-Resort (who offers camping, cabins, and RVs) and this is your invitation to consider gathering with His people from all over the East Coast.
