The Fall Feasts being the final harvest time for the year has the four shadow pictures of the last days and the kingdom of God. The Book of the Revelation of Yeshua the Messiah is largely about the last 4 feasts. (1) Trumpets, which announce significant events including, giving of the 10 Commandments by YHVH audibly at the first Shavuot, war, and is closely associated with Christ second coming at the 7th trumpet. (2) Atonement when Israel and the Gentile world will have to be made at one with God. (3) Tabernacles, the kingdom with all nations involved; of which we will speak more about in a moment and (4) the last great day, which has to do with the final resurrections and judgment.
Finally we get to summarize Tabernacles, now that we can see how it fits in place. The Children of Israel were made to dwell in booths, when they came out of Egypt. This signified among other things, something temporary, before they made it to the promise land. In other words it would not be the final situation in which their bodies would always exist. Those little shanties they built to live in, simply were not the most secure, lasting or even wanted place for them. Consider Yeshua (Jesus) whom scripture says came to temporarily dwell (tabernacle) among us. If you look at the 24 courses of the priests set up by David the King, you will find that there were two courses of Abia. These would be the two periods that year, Zechariah the Priest would have served, before the next years birth of his son John the Baptist and also Jesus. You can choose one course that would put Yeshua’s (Jesus’) birth near what people call Christmas, which has always been the time of the birth of pagan gods, like Tammuz, Zeus or the Roman Mithras. Or the other course that would put the birth of John around the time of Passover and Jesus would have been born at the time of the Feast of Tabernacles.
In Fact Jesus life on earth was the epitome of the meanings of tabernacles. He came to temporarily live in a fleshy body that is not going to last. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. It is not where the body will end up. The Apostle Paul playing off this obvious truth spoke of being in THIS tabernacle (his body) but also spoke about how it had to be changed from mortal to immortality. Not only was Jesus born on the first of tabernacles but he was circumcised on that 8th day (the feast of the last great day. This signifies the FINAL cutting off of flesh as a way to live and the time the final group of people will be made immortals.
Remember there are literally 3 ages where people will go through this process. Paul spoke about the order that this change will take place. (1) Christ, the first fruits, has already been changed from Mortal to immortal. (2) They that are Christ at his coming, which is his Church. Christ will come and only the church will be changed from mortal to immortality. He will set up his Kingdom on earth. Satan will be bound for 1,000 years. Nations will learn and accept or reject the truth. People will live long lives and have great grand children. During this time people will go through the process that Christians go through now, by living through the shadow pictures we suppose to now. In fact scripture shows that the whole world, every nation will keep these Sabbaths. It even says that God will cause it not to rain upon any nation that refuses to come up (or maybe sending representatives) to Jerusalem to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
After the 1,000 years all the people who ever lived and did not have an adequate opportunity to hear and accept or reject the gospel will be raised from the dead and scripture indicates that there will be a 100 years period for them to live and learn and possibly accept the truth of Christ. Scripture says thee will no longer be an infant of days or and old man that has not fulfilled his days. If a person lives to be 100 years old and still remain a sinner, he will be cursed (kjv). This is that 100 years. It is also the time the Yeshua (Jesus) mentioned that the men or Nineveh and those of Sodom would rise with the people living in the generation when he (Yeshua) walked the earth in flesh. It is also the time that Satan will be released and ONE FINAL TIME He will try to convince the world that his is the right way to freedom and happiness. It will be at the end of this period, when all will have been judged. This is that eight day, when the last flesh like circumcision will be cut off. All that are filthy will be filthy still. Satan and his defenders will make an effort to destroy the holy city of God as Yeshua (Jesus) must turn over all back to the Father. Fire will come out of heaven and destroy them. This is the lake of fire. This is also the time when the whole heavens and earth will be burnt up. All the wicked and fake Christians that turned from Christ will be burnt up. A new heavens and new earth where only righteousness exists will be created to last forever.
