Feast of Tabernacles
“14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt (tabernacled) among us, (and we beheld his glory, the Glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of Grace and Truth.” John 1:14 As individuals, we live on this earth for a short time. Our Messiah also lived a short life, compared to other men in the Bible. We, as He was in the flesh, are temporary. During the Feast of Tabernacles, we live not in our homes but in temporary dwelling places.
Tabernacles is also called Sukkot or the feast of Booths. “13 You shall keep the Feast of Booths seven days, when you have gathered in the produce from your threshing floor and your winepress. You are to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your winepress.” Deuteronomy 16-13 It began when Moses was bringing the children of Israel from Egypt (a symbolic type of sin) to the Holy Land.
Our Messiah dwelt with us in a temporary body. He never sinned. And, He died a cruel sacrificial death for our sins. We are also to live for Him and remember that we are also flesh and temporary.
