The last of the seven Jewish feast days, the Feast of Tabernacles, is
being observed by Jews in Jerusalem and around the world by building a
"succa", a thatched hut, and then living in this succa for the entire
week long Jewish holy days as they complete the annual cycle of Jewish
holy days given to them by God some 3,500 years ago.
The succa, a
thatched hut similar to the dwelling place of the Children of Israel
during their 40-year long wandering in the wilderness on their trip to
the promised land, will be erected near their homes and apartments so
that the family may use this succa in celebration of this annual event.
Thousands of Christians from around the world will join the Jews in
Israel to celebrate the feast because of the Biblical directive for all,
both Christians and Jews, to observe the Feast of Tabernacles on a
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles by Jewish people in Jerusalem
and around the world has not only a historic significance but a
prophetic significance as well according to Bible prophecy.
the end of the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement,
Jewish families in Israel and around the world have been erecting their
succas, a thatched hut, to have it ready for the week long celebration
of Succoth, the Feast of Tabernacles.
The succa was the
transportable housing for the Children of Israel as they wandered in the
wilderness during that forty year period traveling from Egypt to the
promised land. Jewish families will eat their meals, visit with family
and friends and some even sleep in their thatched huts, the succa, for
the entire seven days of the feast. The historic significance of this
feast is to remind the Jews of their travels to the promised land.
this seven day feast is the time when Jews will look forward to the
Kingdom Period promised by the Lord and revealed by the ancient Jewish
prophets. At the Transfiguration recorded in Matthew 17, when Peter saw
Jesus in His glorified body, along with Moses and Elijah, he wanted to
build three tabernacles, three succas, because he thought the Kingdom
had arrived. That physical earthly Kingdom will begin on a future Feast
of Tabernacles when Jesus Christ sets up His Kingdom.
Jews celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles today, looks forward to a future Feast of Tabernacles and the Kingdom to come.
