What is "Sukkot" or Feast of Tabernacles?

The Feast of Tabernacles or "Sukkot" (loosely pronounced: sue-coat) is the last of the Fall feasts commanded by YHVH in the Scriptures. This is an 8-day feast that celebrates the end of the harvest season. It is a time of great joy and celebration.

The first feast of the Hebrew year is Passover or Pesach and it reminds us of the time that preceded the Exodus from Egypt by the children of Israel. The Feast of Tabernacles is the last feast of the Hebrew year and it teaches us to prepare for an even greater exodus when YHVH will gather all of HIS people from the nations of the world where they have been scattered for many, many generations. They've been scattered for so long that they've forgotten completely who they are and how they fit into YHVH's plan for HIS Kingdom, but the time has come for us to remember and many people have been led to become a part of HIS feasts.

This year has been an incredible blessing for us as we were able to join with those that gather in Chandler, OK for Sukkot. It has long been my dream to be able to participate in this annual event and when the door opened for us to go, we rejoiced in this special blessing. Our FATHER in Heaven is so good to us and HE's always looking for ways to bless us with HIS presence. We had no idea going into this feast just how blessed we would be by the end. We love HIS surprises!
