Sukkot 2011


Sukkot, a picture of the wedding of Yahoshuah to His bride, Israel.  It is the Feast the whole book is about.  Restoring His bride and returning all things to their place, once for all.

Lev 23:33  And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying, 
Lev 23:34  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto YHWH. 

It is called the Season of Our Joy.  It is agricultural in nature occurring during the fall harvest and pointing to the harvest of souls which is to take place at the end of days.  During Sukkot we are called to be in temporary dwellings or tents/ sukkahs during this time which also reminds us that we are all in temporary dwellings because this earthly body is not our permanent home!  We are strangers and sojourners here...just passin' through.  Our earthly homes are temporary and life is fleeting.

We are called to willingly and obediently leave the comforts of our houses and live in temporary dwellings.  We expose ourselves to the elements and place ourselves in a situation where we realize that true security and shelter are found only as we remain in YHWH's will and under His care.

Sukkot is also known as a time for hospitality, a time for inviting guests into your sukkah to dine and have fellowship.  It is especially good to invite those in need.

It is the feast where we are called to rejoice:
Lev 23:40  And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before YHWH your God seven days. 



All things that have taken place will bring us to the time of promised restoration that is soon to come in it's completion during the Feast of Sukkot!!
