|Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles|
For 2018, Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles): September 24-October 1
Solomon's Rest will celebrate on Saturday, September 29 with a potluck lunch following the service.
Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:33-43) This is the seventh feast of God and it is the third fall feast yet to be fulfilled. Some scholars believe it is this day that Jesus was born, that he "tabernacled" among us (John 1:14). This is a seven day feast in which small structures, booths "sukkahs", are built and people dwell in them to remind them of the days of the Israelites dwelling in temporary shelters with God. It calls to mind that God provided water and manna for the Hebrews for 40 years as they tabernacle with him. In the future, all nations will celebrate this feast (Zechariah 14:16). Scholars believe that the innkeeper offered Mary and Joseph his own sukkah that he had erected for Sukkot. We celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles, looking for a fulfillment of the feast and longing for God Himself to tabernacle with us (Revelation 21:3).
