Leviticus 23:34 "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying the fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord." We are in the Hebrew year 5777. As I pondered on the importance of all the "Feasts of the Lord", This Feast stood out to me because of the "SEVENS"! The Feast of Tabernacles is the seventh and last feast of the cycle which begins in the spring with Passover.The Feast of Tabernacles is in the seventh month and lasts for seven days! This year ends with three sevens, 5777. This means not only does the feast carry three sevens, this year carries three sevens as well. Seven IS the number of spiritual completion and three IS the number of divine completion! This means there is a double portion poured out for us this year! The Feast of Tabernacles is a rehearsal of the completion of Yehweh's divine plan of salvation. We rehearse the joyful time when our Messiah returns to begin His reign on earth! The Feast of Tabernacles also is a celebration of the harvest being brought in. There is a final harvest that He is going to bring in and afterward, a big party! The wedding supper of the Lamb is ready!!! Let us all rehearse our part in this "double portion" moment as we focus on nothing but THE LAMB. Happy Feast of Tabernacles!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
