What Is The Feast of Tabernacles

What is the Feast of Tabernacles to Christians who are not bound any longer by the law? Find out how this feast keeps us in God’s cycles of blessings and how Jesus connected Himself to this time of feasting. What Is The Feast of Tabernacles

We are in complete agreement with the fact that Christian believers have been set free from the observance of the law. The only problem is that observing the Biblical feasts is not part of the law of Moses.

God described in the book of Leviticus that there were particular times of feasting each year to observe. He said, “These are My Feasts.” We don’t know about you, but if God is throwing a party, we want to be there.

What is the feast of Tabernacles? It is really that simple. We don’t have to get into any deep religious discussions here. There are feasting times that God wanted to establish as an expression of who He is and His desire to share His glory.

Just as Jesus Christ is the ultimate expression of who God is to the world, His times of feasting are actually an expression of who Jesus was to be to the world.

Just because Jesus became the fulfillment of the Jewish feasts doesn’t mean they no longer have a place. Go back in the Old Testament and see what God said about His feasts. He said they were to be observed for all generations.

Specifically, what is the Feast of Tabernacles? It is a 7-day harvest feast which occurs on the 15th day of the seventh month of the Jewish calendar called Tishrei. It’s name in Hebrew is Succot.

The main theme of this feast is building booths or temporary dwellings, which is symbolic of God dwelling with us. Christians obviously know that their bodies have become the dwelling place of the Spirit of God.

Allow us to ask you this question. How much of your life would you say you live in the full knowledge that God’s Holy Spirit dwells in you? We need all the help and all the reminders we can get.

We need these reminders to help break us out of the cycles of spiritual destruction or apathy that constantly swirl around us. God was aware of this and set up His annual feasts to keep us close to Him.

    Your wording is interesting, not sure what to make of it.

    “What is the Feast of Tabernacles to Christians who are not bound any longer by the law?” And : “Christian believers have been set free from the observance of the law”

    It’s kind of confusing because when you say “not bound any longer” as if Christianity existed forever at at one time had to keep the Law/Torah.. The people who converted to Christians were 1st Century gentile Pagans who weren’t bound to the law either. As I read the bible the Torah applies then and now to the Jews.

    There were also many Jews who converted to Christianity. Many Christians today struggle with living the abundant life thinking it is all about rules and regulations. They also view the Biblical feasts like they are a requirement of the Old Testament law and thus dismiss the feasts. That was the pint I was trying to make. Thanks for your comment. i
