First Day of Tabernacles (Sukkot Begins at Sundown)
The LORD spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the children of Israel, saying: The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the LORD.
– Leviticus 23:33-34
As we begin our celebration of this week of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles,
the season of our joy, it is the concluding celebration of God’s third and
final Feast season of the entire year on His celestial calendar.
The Feast of Tabernacles celebrates and commemorates when God led the Israelites
through the wilderness for 40 years, providing for them in every need of their
daily life: water, food, clothing and shelter.
This Feast season was also a yearly reminder that God has always intended to
live, to dwell gloriously in the midst of His people. God’s fervent desire is
to dwell, to tabernacle with you.
Holy Spirit, thank You for dwelling within me every moment.
