An Orthodox Jewish Broadcast Partner explains the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Let's begin actually by talking about the Feast of Tabernacles. Its the last of the seven Jewish Feasts but it's a very important Feast day especially for the Jewish people. Just tell us what is Feast of Tabernacles all about?

WM: We have among the festivals that we have we have three that we call Pilgrimage Festivals. In other words when the Temple existed 2,000 years ago according to the Bible commanded to come to Jerusalem on those three festivals which was Passover, the Feast of Weeks, and as you call it the Feast of Tabernacles or Booths. It is one of the three main joyous festivals. It is very joyous because actually the Bible says and you shall be happy and joyful at that time even in fact looking upon it as a commandment that at this time we find joy in the life that we live. 

The major elements of it for those who are unfamiliar observant Jews will be building booths or huts on their lawns, on their balconies in which they would at the very least take all their meals during the seven days of the holiday. During the morning prayers they will also be waving the palm frond and three other elements of nature a citron fruit, a willow branch and a myrtle branch as we understand that is what the commandment is. And if it wasn't for the Corona we'd be having almost every night music and festival in which we would dance at the synagog which we have.  

JD: Winke Medad explaining the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

In order to educate our Christian friends I had Winkie Medad who is as I said an Orthodox Jewish broadcast partner here on Prophecy Today come to explain Tabernacles the last of the seven Jewish Feast days as foretold in Leviticus 23. As a student of Bible prophecy I believe that the Messiah Jesus Christ will fulfill all of the three fall Jewish Feasts. He will return on the Feast of Trumpets, go into the holy of hollies on the Temple Mount on Yom Kippur, and will be given His kingdom on the Feast of Tabernacles. That is found in Matthew 24:31 for Trumpets, Hebrews 9:25-28 for Yom Kippur, and Matthew 17 for the Feast of Tabernacles.
