Today is called in the Biblical calendar “Hoshana Raba”, the last day of Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), meaning the Day of Great Salvation. In Hebrew Salvation doesn’t just mean saved from this earth for an eternal home. It means salvation to every area of one’s life. Salvation to your health, to your finances, to your relationships, to your future, to your ministry, to your business, and to your family.
According to 2 Chronicles 7: 10-14 this is also the day when Solomon dedicated the Temple. Whatch this:
“On the twenty-third day of the seventh month (the biblical month of Tishri is the seventh month and today is 23rd day which falls on the last day of Sukkot, today is that annivsary) he sent the people to their homes, joyful and glad in heart for the good things the Lord had done for David and Solomon and for his people Israel.
The Lord Appears to Solomon
When Solomon had finished the temple of the Lord and the royal palace, and had succeeded in carrying out all he had in mind to do in the temple of the Lord and in his own palace, the Lord appeared to him at night and said:
“I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices.
“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.”
Wow, this is the annivisary of that day! The last day of Sukkot, TODAY! What a great prayer to pray and meditate upon. But it get’s better.
The final Sukkot Symbol and Mystery is found in the Marriage Covenant. The three feast of Tabernacles, Rosh Hashanah represents the Second Coming of Yeshua. The feast of Yom Kippur represents the Great White Judgment. And the last is the Feast of Sukkot (booth) and actually is a picture of the Marriage Chuppah is a covering of Covenant.
The ancient Hebrew Marriage holds a revelation. In order to be a marriage the Bride Groom had to always make a journey from His house to the Bride’s house. Then in the house of the Bride, He would have to pledge himself and give a costly treasure to set her free from her house. They then would seal the betrothal by drinking the cup of wine together which represented covenant. Then the groom would go back to his house and prepare a home for her. They would be separated for some time. She would prepare herself for him and him for her. Then the great Wedding day would come a year later with a great procession where the Bride Groom dresses as a King with his men dressed in formal attire with torches at night coming to the Bride. He would come to her remove her vale and they would see each other face to face. He then would carry her away with a great procession to His house. There they would celebrate the Wedding Feast for many days. The great mystery her is that Yeshua is the Bride Groom and those who are born into His family through confession and repentance are the Bride.
In order for this to happen the Bride Groom must make the journey. So 2000 years ago Yeshua journeyed from His house Heaven to our house earth. He journeyed from His house knocks on our door and let him in. He has produced a very costly treasure and it was his life, death, and resurrection to Betroth us. Then the Bride and Groom shared a cup. He shared a cup with us. The Bride has to go to His Father’s house, John 14:23, I will prepare a place for you. When it is ready I will return to you and come again. We are now in the great separation being betrothed to Yeshua waiting for coming again. Once He comes he will take us His bride to His home and there we will experience the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
The Great Assembly would chant together on this day, “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.” From this day forward one could expect to walk in great joy and blessing. May God’s divine mysterious be evident in your life this final day of the Feast of Tabernacles.
Today is the day of Great Salvation. For those who have an ear to hear, You are walking into a new year 5778.
