Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) is a week long autumn harvest festival, with the first and eighth day being a Holy Convocation. It is also known as The Feast of the Ingathering, or Sukkot. The two days following this festival are separate holidays, Shemini Atzeret, The Great Eighth Day, and Simchat Torah, Joy In The Torah, but they are generally thought of as part of Sukkot. This feast is the final High Holy Day of the Cycle of YAHWEH, and the divine pronouncement, “I am the Lord your God” concludes this section. “That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am The LORD your God.” (Leviticus 23:43)
The customs of this Feast Day is to dwell in booths for seven days, recite Psalm 27 and make a lulav of palm, myrtle, willow and fruit from citron. (Leviticus 23:40) Our Messiah celebrated this High Holy Day, teaching in the Temple. On the last and greatest day of Sukkot, the day the Rabbis poured the water, Maran Yeshua stood calling special attention to His Word and proclaimed that He was the very fountain of living water. ( John 7:37-38)
“But who so ever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14)
The Living Water comes from Jerusalem; we will worship The King and keep the Feast of Tabernacles. (Zechariah 14:8-19)
