The Biblical holidays are the ancient “Feasts of the Lord.” They are God’s appointed times and can be seen on our full Jewish Calendar. Each memorializes a special event in our Judeo-Christian history. Each offers a window of blessing, opportunity and revelation for both the present and the future. Collectively they create a powerful yearly cycle for us to live by. 

The Lord embedded unique spiritual themes within each that promotes spiritual development and the abundant life we’ve been promised. You’ll also discover the Bible Holidays correspond to Gods plan of redemption, end time events and Jesus’ first coming and His second coming. Jesus celebrated the Biblical Holidays and as His followers we should too.

Sukkot is the 7th and final of the “Feasts of the Lord.” It commemorates the miraculous protection the Lord provided for the children of Israel coming out of Egypt. The word “Sukkot” means “booths,” and refers to the temporary dwellings that God commanded His people to live in during this 7-day holiday.

This opens the windows of Heaven and brings the promise of a miracle harvest as described in Malachi 3.
