Sunday Evening, September 27 thru Monday Evening, October 5

So, as we approach Sukkot, the Hebrew word for Tabernacles, let’s take a look at what His Word tells us.

Zechariah 14:16-19: “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

“And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

“And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

“This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.”

Looks like everyone on earth will be expected to observe the Feast of Tabernacles in the Kingdom.

That begs the question: If the feasts were for Moses and the prophets and for Jesus and His disciples, and they will once again be for all nations and all people in the Kingdom to come, why are they not for His disciples today?

I’m sure I’ll get a lot of explanations from readers.

I always do.

And I’m always willing to listen to them.

But it’s a question worth asking. I don’t think most Christians ever earnestly ask themselves and seek answers from His Word rather than from their teachers.

As I read the gospels, I see Jesus emphasizing one point over and over again. It’s the message He gave repeatedly to the Pharisees of old: “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

What was He saying? He was telling them to get back to Scripture only – the divinely delivered Word of God. These were the “heavy burdens” that were laid by men on other men’s shoulders, not the eternal teachings of God.

Pray about that through Sukkot this year, which begins at sundown Sunday, Sept. 27, and lasts eight days. Learn about it, if you are so inspired. Take it to the Lord in prayer and humility.

If you want to learn more about it, I can recommend no better exposition on all the feasts than those offered by Mark Biltz, better known as “the Blood Moons guy.”

And don’t forget next Sunday evening begins another “appointed time” – one filled with extraordinary prophetic promise – the Feast of Trumpets. It is preceded Sept. 13 by the Hebrew date Elul 29 – the end of the Shemitah year. If you want to learn about the significance of that date, I can recommend no better teaching than those offered by Jonathan Cahn.

Shabot Shalom.
