It is the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles, also known as Festival of Booths and in Hebrew “Sukkot”. During this joyous 8-day feast Jews, in Israel and around the world, celebrate the fall harvest and God’s faithful protection of the Israelites during their forty years of wanderings in the Sinai Desert. There are activities and festivals happening all over Israel; family and friends remember God’s faithful provision as they share special meals together in their sukkahs.
For Christians, the festival is reminder of the redemptive work of Christ and of his sovereignty in our lives. It points to a time in which he will reign on Earth forever. Hallalujah! Let this year’s feast be a time for followers of Jesus to remember the exhortation in 1 Peter 5 to cast your cares upon Him for He cares for you. He will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6). He sustains us by the word of His power. Amen.
Please join me in praying for God’s peace and protection over Israel. As always, your love and support for the Holy Land is appreciated.
