Feast of Tabernacles
Celebrating God's Blessings and Faithfulness
Friday-Sunday, October 26-28, 2012
The Celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles has become an annual tradition at Cornerstone Church. As Christians, it is important that we understand our Jewish roots, the feasts and how they apply to the Believer. The Feast of Tabernacles or "Sukkot" is known as the feast of the booths or temporary dwellings, when the Jewish males were required to go to Jerusalem. Leviticus 23:33-43, Numbers 29:12-39 and Deuteronomy 16:13-16 all describe the details of this unique feast.
"Sukkot" commences the fifteenth day of "Tishri," five days after Yom Kippur or the day of Atonement. It lasts seven days, with an eighth day, Sh’mini Atzeret, spent as an added day of rest. This feast occurs during late September or October.
Families build booths of palm branches, partly open to the sky, to recall God’s blessings toward Israel during the forty years of wandering in the desert and living in tents. The festival also celebrates the harvest that previously took place at summer’s end, making this feast a time of thanksgiving. The Puritans modeled the American holiday of Thanksgiving after "Sukkot."
It is always important to remember that the Feast of Tabernacles major theme is joy and thanksgiving. So join us for the joyful event - the Feast of Tabernacles. We will be celebrating the joy, goodness and many blessings of God. It is a celebration to be enjoyed by both Christians and Jews alike. It will open your eyes to what the Feast means to all of us.
