Sukkot, Festival of Booths

Thought from First Fruits of Zion:

The Apostle John uses a verb form of the same Greek word that is used to translate the Hebrew word for booth (sukkah) when he wrote, "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt [tabernacled] among us." (John 1:14) He tabernacled among us, and He will tabernacle among us again in the messianic future. The celebration of the Festival of Booths (Sukkot) celebrates the Messiah who once tabernacled among us, now tabernacles within us, and in the future will again tabernacle among us.

It is a beautiful image. Thank you for the Holy Spirit that dwells inside of us. And for that day yet to come, I say, "Come, Yeshua, Return to us." :) In the meantime, may I be pleasing to you, follow you and lead my children to follow you.
