The Feast of Tabernacles is as old as yesterday and as modern as tomorrow...
'Feast of Tabernacles' is a strange-sounding phrase. The words feast and tabernacles conjure up a picture of something impossibly remote and archaic. Yet the Feast of Tabernacles looks towards the future and pictures a time for which mankind has yearned down through the ages.
The celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles pictures a future time, known as the Millennium which begins with the soon-coming return of Jesus Christ, and His institution of God's government on this weary, war-torn planet. The Millennium will be a time of peace, abundance and joy, as the earth's inhabitants learn the way of give as opposed to society's current philosophy of get.
We read in the Bible that Jesus observed the Feast of Tabernacles during His earthly ministry (John 7:1-14) nearly two thousand years ago. And God also inspired the prophet Zechariah to write of a time yet future, when all nations of the earth will "worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and...keep the Feast of Tabernacles" (Zechariah 14:16-19).
In obedience to God’s command to observe the feasts of the Eternal, listed in Leviticus 23, members of the United Church of God assemble in many locations around the world to observe the Feast of Tabernacles and experience a foretaste of the Millennium or the world tomorrow.
