THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES -- Also called Sukkoth

by Molly Noble Bull

The Feast of Tabernacles (also called the Feast of Booths, Feast of Shelters and Sukkoth) is a time of rejoicing when the harvest is gathered in and Jews live in booths as they did in the wilderness with Moses. It is the third of the fall feasts of the LORD and lasts for seven days. In 2012, the Feast of Tabernacles begins at sundown on September 30th and ends at sundown on October 7th
See the Book of Leviticus, chapter 23 and verses 33-34. 
Believers rejoice because of what Jesus did for us on the cross by willingly dying in our place. Christians also believe that Jesus will reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords in the city of Jerusalem for a thousand years during the Millennium Kingdom.

According to the Book of Zechariah, the Feast of Tabernacles will be celebrated during the Millennium Kingdom.
“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.
Zech 14: 16-17
