Lessons from Sukkot

Pomegranate are ready for Sukkot

We just had the privilege of celebrating the Biblical feast of Sukkot! We celebrated the feast by camping on the roof of a building with other believers. It has been an amazing time, and we have experienced and learned so much.

This feast of Sukkot is indeed multi-facetted. It is a festival of rejoicing before YHVH for His provision. At the same time, we experience a taste of the millennial Kingdom, in that we dwell together with brothers and sisters in love and unity. We also get to live in booths in order to remind us of the Israelites dwelling in booths, while wandering through the wilderness. There is even more to this feast, but it is on this last mentioned facet, the dwelling in booths, that we would like focus in this post.

Sukkot – the Festival of Joy!

It is almost time for Sukkot, the Festival of joy! Going to Israel for Sukkot is an unforgettable experience! All around you see Sukkah’s; the streets are filled with people, and you hear cheerful celebration deep into the night (not always so great, if you want to sleep). There is an atmosphere of jubilation all over. The shelves of the vegetable and fruit vendors at the markets are filled with fresh fruit: pomegranates, figs, grapes, olives and watermelons. What a feast of color and sweetness! What makes it so extraordinary in Israel, is that the feast is celebrated by the nation. Almost everybody participates. It gives you a little taste of what it will be like after Y’shua’s return, when all the nations go up to Jerusalem to celebrate this appointed time with YHVH. Yes, that is what it is, a special appointment with YHVH.
