The last of G-d's appointed times is Sukkot. In English it is called "the Feast of Tabernacles" or "the Feast of Booths". This particular moed occurs on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, four days after Yom Kippur/ The Day of Atonement. The moed pictures the day Messiah returns to dwell [tabernacle] among His people for a thousand years. This "return of the King" is something for which believers have been yearning for almost two thousand years.
What does Scripture tell us about this festival and its related commandments?
As we begin our study of this special appointment with the Most High, we pray once more in the words of King David: oh, Lord, please "open our eyes that we might behold wonderful things from your Torah" and see our returning Messiah in this moed. Scripture was given to mankind to speak of Him and we should listen and hear its voice... His voice... especially during His appointed times.
