Tonight marks the final evening of the Feast of Tabernacles or the “great day of the feast” as is recorded in the scriptures:
“On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” John 7:37-39 NKJV
Our Lord was prophesying of the soon coming second outpouring of The Holy Spirit or the latter rains upon all of Israel as written already in the Book of Joel.
The first outpouring came upon the Believers in Jerusalem on Shavuot or Feast of Weeks (day of Pentecost). The second will also begin in Jerusalem, but this time on Sukkot or during a Feast of Tabernacles.
We eagerly await that day each year, praying for its soon fulfillment in the land of Israel.
This year, we were unable to host our traditional week-long Feast of Tabernacles event in the Hinnom Valley as in many years past.
To the disappointment of many, there was no gathering of Believers from all the nations in Jerusalem.
However, we were grateful to host an intimate dinner with a few friends and lone students in the land to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
During our time together, Jan Willem delivered a special Sukkot message, which can be viewed below.
May God bless you as you continue to pray for the well-being of Israel and the plans of the Lord for the sons and daughters of God in the days to come.
