The Feast of Tabernacles has begun around the world. Here is a link to a sermon for today: Christianity and the Feast of Tabernacles.
What should you do if you wish to obey God?
Those who can will travel (Deuteronomy 14:23-26) go to a Feast site. If you are at, near, or can get to one of the Feast of Tabernacles’ Sites for 2016 you should attend church services there every day.
But if you are not able to physically attend those locations, what should you do?
Those who cannot may wish to consider the possibility to not sleep in their houses during the time of the Feast. If they are physically and financially able, they may wish to try to sleep in some type of temporary dwelling like a hotel, motel, camper, or a tent (including perhaps one in one’s own home). In ancient Israel, those who did not travel (as well as native Israelites that did) made ‘booths’ of branches on top of their roofs (Leviticus 23:40) and slept in them for the seven days of the Feast (Leviticus 23:42), and some slept in them for the entire eight days (though the Bible only mentions seven days). Staying in ‘temporary dwellings,’ of whatever sort, helps convey that this age is temporal and a new millennial age is coming.
Since the feast is not required of the new covenant, why waste the money on a hotel or a tent for the living room? You can put the money to better use in the year and take your family on a real vacation which does not include hours and hours of mind numbingly BAD sermons from the likes of Thiel, Mario Hernandez, Rod Meredith, Vic Kubik, Stevie Flurry and others.
