Feast of Tabernacles
On the 15th day of the 7th month, called Ethanim, comes the highlight of our ancestors’ year. An eight-day festival with two excuses to take off of work. We’re talking about the Feast of Tabernacles, also known as the Ingathering, the last of the appointed times given to Moses in the Law (Purim is our last feast of the year but is not in the Law). The feast lasts then for 7 days of fun and activities and on the last day, the 8th day, there is another sacred gathering to hear and learn of the Word of Truth.
Always remember, the appointed times that Yah gave our ancestors are ALL a shadow of Yahushua (Jesus) [Colossians 2:17]. This is why the Messiah died on Passover, was in the grave during the week of Unleavened Bread and three days after His death He rose according to the First Fruit Sheaf Waving. Then seven weeks later He gave the promise of the Spirit to the apostles on Pentecost. We look to this celebration with the hope that the Messiah will gather all His elect together in the last day to be with Him forever in the Kingdom.
