~Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) is also known as the season of our joy.
~In temple times, a special ceremony depicted a prophetic promise in the festival.
~The event was called simchah beyt hasho’evah (rejoicing in the place of water drawing).
~During the celebration a priest would take a pitcher and draw from the pool of Siloam in Jerusalem.
~He would lead the people in a procession of praise back to the temple where they would chant Psalms 113-118.
~The highlight of the ceremony came when the priest poured the water onto the altar. Why? Isaiah 12:3 taught the time when God would pour out His Holy Spirit in the days of the Messianic redemption.
~An amazing thing happened during the first century Sukkot celebration in Jerusalem:
John 7:37-38 “In the last day, that great day of the feast (Hosha’na Rabbah), Yeshua stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
~By this Yeshua was proclaiming that He was the Messiah, the fulfillment of the Isaiah 12:3.
~Today let us drink from the living waters of Yeshua by allowing the Holy Spirit to take control of our lives.
~I encourage everyone to study the Feasts of the Lord. They really do reveal to us the first and second coming of our Messiah. The Feasts are all about Him.
John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
