The Christian Eighth Day

"Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month [see The Bible Calendar and Bible Months], when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast [i.e. The Feast of Tabernacles] unto The Lord [see YHVH, Adonai, Jehovah, LORD] seven days: on the first day shall be a Sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a Sabbath. And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before The Lord your God seven days. And ye shall keep it a feast unto The Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month." (Leviticus 23:39-41 KJV)

Jesus Christ Observed The Feast Of Tabernacles

Jesus Christ observed the Feast of Tabernacles; His "living waters" lesson was appropriately taught on "the Great Day":


"Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the Temple [see "My Father's House"], and taught. And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? [see also Doctorates Of Error] Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent Me. If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him." (John 7:14-18 KJV)

"In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture [see also The First Christian Bible] hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water [see Living Waters]. But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for The Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified." (John 7:37-39 KJV)

The Dual Meaning Of The God-Commanded Biblical Holy Days

The spring (from Jerusalem's perspective, in the northern hemisphere) Holy Days symbolize the events related to the First Coming of Jesus Christ:

The autumn (from Jerusalem's perspective, in the northern hemisphere) Holy Days symbolize the events related to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ:

  • The Feast of Trumpets - The Return of Jesus Christ. (Leviticus 23:23-25, Matthew 24:30-31) (see The Feast Of Trumpets and The Return Of Jesus Christ)

  • The Day of Atonement - the judgment and sentencing of Satan after his removal as "the god of this world." (Leviticus 23:26-32, Revelation 20:10) (see The Escape Goat and The Day of Atonement)

  • The Feast of Tabernacles - the first 1,000 years after The Return of Christ. (Leviticus 23:33-36, Revelation 20:2-4) (see Scenes From The Millennium)

  • The Last Day - the 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles picturing the later physical resurrection of the vast majority of humanity who were not resurrected to spirit at the Return of Jesus Christ. (Leviticus 23:39, Revelation 20:5,11-15) (see When Will You Be Judged? and What Happens When You Die?)

Fact Finder: (a) After the return of Jesus Christ, will all nations be required, by God, to observe the Feast of Tabernacles? (b) Will those who refuse to observe the Feast of Tabernacles experience drought and plague?
(a) Zechariah 14:16 (b) Zechariah 14:17-19
