Yeshua in SuccotHow Yeshua Fulfills the Feast of Tabernacles

Sukkot in Biblical TimesSpeak to the children of Israel, saying, "On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the festival of Sukkos, a seven-day period for HaShem. The first day shall be a sacred holiday when you may not do any work. ...The eighth day is a sacred holiday to you... it is an atzeres, you may not do any work. ...

Sukkot in Biblical TimesOn the first day you must take for yourself a fruit of the citron tree, an unopened palm frond, myrtle branches, and brook willows, and you shall rejoice before HaShem for seven days. ...

Sukkot in Biblical TimesYou shall dwell in sukkos for seven days.... it is a permanent regulation, generation after generation So that your future generations shall know that I had the children of Israel live in sukkos when I brought them out of Egypt..(Leviticus) 23:34-43

Sukkot in Biblical TimesThe Feast of Tabernacles is by far the most festive and joyous of occasions. The Feasts were given to Israel within the boundaries of their relationship to God.The Fall Feasts reflect three aspects of our relationship with God:Outside covenant relationship they are just religious ceremonies. We will show how Yeshua fulfills Sukkot through covenant relationship in this study.God doesnt call us to fulfill certain duties He calls us into relationship with Him in which we repent of our rebellion and commit ourselves to Him through the sacrifice of the Perfect Offering Yeshua.Sukkot in Biblical TimesRosh Hashanah Days of TrumpetsRepentance

Yom Kippur Day of AtonementRedemption

Sukkot Feast of TabernaclesRejoicing

Rosh Hashanah & Days of Awe in which we repent of going our own way reminds us of the alarm blast God sounded to us which brought us to repentance. The sound of the Shofar reminds us of Gods relationship with Abraham the Friend of GodYom Kippur The Day of Atonement reminds us that repentance alone does not bring us into right relationship with God. Leviticus 1711 For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life.Sukkot Feast of Tabernacles is the Season of our Rejoicing for what He has done in our lives. It is a time of thanksgiving and celebration because of His chosing to Tabernacle with us and in us. Deuteronomy 1614 Be joyful at your Feast-you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, and the Levites, the aliens, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns. Sukkot in Biblical TimesSukkot was celebrated following the outline in Leviticus:

They lived in booths made of boughs of trees and branches of palm trees for the seven days of the feast (Lev. 23:42). They rested from all regular work on the first and eighth days.

Sukkot in Biblical TimesSukkot was celebrated following the outline in Leviticus:

The Priest offered sacrifices on the seven days, beginning with thirteen bullocks and other animals on the first day and diminishing by one bullock each day until, on the seventh, seven bullocks were offered.

Sukkot in Biblical TimesSukkot was celebrated following the outline in Leviticus:

On the eighth day there was a solemn assembly when one bullock, one ram, and seven lambs were offered (Num. 29:36). The sacrifices offered during this time amounted to 189 animals.

Sukkot in Biblical TimesSukkot was celebrated following the outline in Leviticus:

Men carried the cluster of branches to the synagogue to wave as they rejoiced before the Lord, as commanded by the Lord (Lev. 23:40).

Sukkot in Biblical TimesWater was also an important part of the Feast of Tabernacles. This ceremony lasted seven days. The last day was called Hoshana Rabba -- Day of the Great Hosanna.Priests blew trumpets & waved branchesPeople sang the Great Hallel (Psalms 113-118)Water was also an important part of the Feast of Tabernacles. Before the festival, the Rabbis taught on every passage in Scripture dealing with water. In Old Testament Biblical times, gold pitchers of water were brought from the pool of Siloam to the temple. The Priest would pour out the water over the altar to signify Israels gratitude for the rain that had produced the harvest, and would pray for rain in the next year. The priest would recite Isaiah 12:1-3. And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. This special libation was performed only during the seven days of the Feast of Tabernacles. This was done not only to remind God of the need for abundant rain during the winter season, but also to remind the people of the coming Messiah who had promised to pour out His Holy Spirit on the people. This ceremony lasted seven days. The last day was called Hoshana Rabba, meaning the Day of the Great Hosanna. As the celebration continued, the priests blew the trumpets and waved the branches and the people sang the Great Hallel (Psalms 113 through 118).Sukkot In The FutureThe Feast of Sukkot will be celebrated in the Millinial Reign of Messiah Yeshua

Zec 14:16 - Finally, everyone remaining from all the nations that came to attack Yerushalayim will go up every year to worship the king, ADONAI-Tzva'ot, and to keep the festival of Sukkot. The SukkahThe core of the symbols in Sukkot is the Sukkah The Booth.

The symbols point to relationship

The SukkahThe Sukkah is a temporary structure which reminds us of two things..The wanderings of our forefathers in the wilderness all the while surrounded by Gods presence which brought His provision.The transience of this life and that the only permanence and true protection is in His presence and love.

God commands Israel to celebrate Sukkot every year so we will remember that the stones, bricks and mortar of our homes that create an ambience of security is not real. The Sukkah of Yahwah Our ProtectionThe Sukkah also reminds us of Yahwahs protection over us

Psalm 27:5 For he will conceal me in his shelter (sukkah) on the day of trouble, he will hide me in the folds of his tent, he will set me high on a rock.

Here, King David uses the words 'sok' and 'ohel' to describe God's protection and care for his servant. The Hebrew word 'sok' which is translated into the English word 'shelter', means a hut made from entwined boughs of trees. Moreover, 'sok' is derived from the word 'saw-kak', which means to entwine as a screen and by implication it means to 'cover over'. Figuratively, 'saw-kak' means to protect. The English word 'sanctuary' is translated from the Hebrew word 'ohel' and refers to the holy sanctuary (the dwelling place of God), from where God's presence cares for and protects his people. The Sukkah of Yahwah Our ProtectionThe Sukkah also reminds us of Yahwahs protection over us Psalm31:19 But oh, how great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you do for those who take refuge in you, before people's very eyes! 31:20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them from human plots, you conceal them in your shelter (sukkah - hkko ) , safe from contentious tongues.Here, David spoke of God's protective care for his people and he used the word 'sukkot' (a hut, booth, or shelter made from boughs of trees), which is the same word used to reveal one of the literal meanings of the seven-day feast of the seventh monththe sheltering presence of God. The SukkahThe Sukkah is built with a living roof open to the stars.Green palm leaves arranged so that the stars can be seen at night.Greenery because HaShem is a God of LifeStars because HaShem is a God of Light.

A living open roof helps us focus our vision on the majesty & granduer of God For stars embody brillance and illumination. The SukkahLife and LightGenesis 1:4And God saw that the light was good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it; and God separated the light from the darkness.John 1:4In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.

The SukkahLife and LightGenesis 1:14 Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. The Lulav And EtrogAnd you shall take for you on the first day, the fruit of the tree hadar and branches of palm trees, and a bough of the tree avot and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before Hashem, your G-d, seven days. Leviticus Chapter 23:40

The four species all taken together make up one single mitzvah. If any of the species are missing then you have not fulfilled the mitzvah at all. One lulav, one etrog, two aravot, and three hadasim is taken on Sukkot. The lulav, hadasim and aravot are bound together. The Lulav And Etrog

The Lulav And EtrogSymbolism of the Four Species The "Etrog," the Citron, resembles in its shape, the heart, the driving force behind all our actions. The "Lulav," the Palm Branch, resembles the spine, which holds the body together and, without which, we would be unable to move. The "Hadasim," the Myrtle Branches, resemble, in their almond-shape, the eyes, with w
