WHY KEEP THE BIBLE HOLY DAYS?Why keep the Biblical festivals? Sukkot is a harvest festival and is sometimes referred to in the Bible as Chag HaAsif (חג האסיף, the "Festival of Ingathering"), as it celebrates the gathering of the harvest. Sukkot is also known as "Tabernacles" because it is a joyful celebration that symbolically prefigures and commemorates our Savior's dwelling amongst His people. The Last Great Day spiritually depicts the wonderful coming 1000-year reign of Christ. Join us in the spiritual celebration prefigured by these ancient Holy Days!
Famous Evangelical scholar, the late Matthew Henry stated, "It is supposed by many that our blessed Savior was born much about the time of this [Tabernacles] holiday; when He left His mansions of light above to tabernacle among us (John 1:1), and He dwelt in booths. And the worship of God under the New Testament is prophesied of under the notion of keeping the feast of tabernacles (Zechariah 14:16). For the Gospel of Christ teaches us to dwell in tabernacles, to sit loose to this world, as those that have here no continuing city, but by faith, and hope and holy contempt of present things, to go out to Christ without the camp (Hebrews 13:13-14). It teaches us to rejoice before the Lord our God. Those are the circumcision, Israelites indeed, that always rejoice in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:3). And the more we are taken off from this world the less liable we are to the interruption of our joys."
THE WORD OF THE LORD!
“Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD…when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a Sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a Sabbath…It shall be a statute forever in your generations…And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD.” (Leviticus 23:34, 39, 41, 44)
“Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine: And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates. Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.” (Deuteronomy 16:13-15)
THE SAXON FEAST OF TABERNACLES.
From the History of early English historian Bede, Folio 56.
When the Abbot Mellitus (First Bishop of London, d. 624 A.D.) was leaving Rome for England, Pope Gregory (540-604 A.D.) gave him a letter concerning what he called “the affair of the English,” which had, it seems, caused him much cogitation, and in this epistle he remarked: “They may [continue to] build themselves huts of the boughs of trees about those Churches which have been turned to that use from temples, and celebrate the solemnity with religious feastings; for there is no doubt it is impossible to efface everything at once from their obdurate minds…Thus the Lord made Himself known to the people of Israel in Egypt.” The early Anglo-Saxons continued to celebrate this important ancient Israelite festival.
Bede, Old English: Bǣda [ˈbæːdɑ], Bēda [ˈbeːdɑ]; 672/3 – 26 May 735), also known as Saint Bede, The Venerable Bede, and Bede the Venerable (Latin: Beda Venerabilis), was an English monk and an author and scholar. He was one of the greatest teachers and writers during the Early Middle Ages, and his most famous work, Ecclesiastical History of the English People, gained him the title "The Father of English History." He served at the monastery of St Peter and its companion monastery of St Paul in the Kingdom of Northumbria of the Angles. –From Wikipedia
