Feast Of Tabernacles: Joy To The World

All of the true Christian Holy Days are living, progressive prophecies about both comings of Jesus Christ, with the purpose to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth (see The Gospel of The Kingdom of God).

"For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD"

After Christ's return (as prophesied by the Feast of Trumpets; see the link above), when Satan will be put away (as included in the prophecy of the Day of Atonement; see Sending Away The Escapades Goat), the entire world will be set truly free of the "babylon" (from a Hebrew word that literally means confusion; see The Tabernacles Celebration After The Fall Of Babylon and What And Where Is Babylon Today?) that has held humanity captive ever since Satan sowed confusion in the minds of the first humans. The result will be a world in which everyone will joyously look to the Messiah.


"14:8 And it shall be in that day, that Living Waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one." (Zechariah 14:8-9 KJV)

"4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion [see Anti-Zion Is Anti-Christ], and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4:3 And he shall judge among many people [see Moriah: Separating The Wheat From The Chaff], and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Micah 4:1-3 KJV)

"11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb [a prophecy that speaks of more than just literal wolves that will no longer prey on sheep; see Wolves In Sheep's Clothing, Is Your Church A Cult? and The Way To Salvation: Step 1], and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 11:7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 11:8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea." (Isaiah 11:6-9 KJV)

When the Messiah's God-given task of preparing a family and a world for The Father has been done, God is coming to earth - after which the joy will increase forever more.

"21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely." (Revelation 21:1-6 KJV)

The only Biblical statement about the famous "pearly gates" is for when they will be on Earth.

"21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb." (Revelation 21:10-14 KJV)

"21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life." (Revelation 21:22-27 KJV)

"22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever." (Revelation 22:1-5 KJV)

This Day In History, October 13

539 BC: As prophesied (see Nebuchadnezzar's Dream), Persian forces under Cyrus the Great captured Babylon (see Ancient Empires - Babylon and Ancient Empires - Persia). The LORD had the Babylonians conquer the southern kingdom of Judah (see Israelite Monarchy - The Southern Kingdom) and destroy the idol-infested Temple in Jerusalem in 586 BC (see also Raiders Of The Lost Ark) because of their defiant corruption. The Persians under Cyrus permitted the people of Judah to return, after their prophesied seventy years in exile, in the time of Ezra and Nehemiah.

54: The Roman emperor Claudius (see also New Testament Roman Emperors) died after eating poisoned mushrooms given to him by his wife Agrippina. He was succeeded by Agrippina's son Nero (see also Did Nero Really Fiddle While Rome Burned?), who reigned 54-68.

1601: Tycho Brahe died at age 55. The Danish astronomer made many important discoveries of the heavens, all before the invention of the telescope (see also No 'Flat Earth' In The Bible).

1812: During the War of 1812 (1812-1814), Canadian defense forces under Sir Isaac Brock repelled U.S. invaders at the Battle of Queenston Heights near Niagara Falls in southern Ontario (the War of 1812 was declared by U.S. President James Madison with the stated intention of annexing Canada). General Brock was killed in the battle while fighting on the front lines with his troops.

1854: The Battle of Balaklava, an indecisive engagement during the Crimean War, best known as the inspiration of the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson's "Charge of The Light Brigade." In the battle, the Russians failed to capture Balaklava, the Black Sea supply port of the British, French and Turkish forces in the southern Crimea, but the British lost control of their best supply road connecting Balaklava with the heights above Sevastopol, the major Russian naval center that was under siege. The battle ended with the loss of 40% of the Light Brigade.

1884: Greenwich was established as the universal time meridian of longitude.

1917: The last "appearance of the Virgin Mary" to 3 shepherd children near Fatima, Portugal. Six "visions" were reported between May and October, each on the 13th of the month. The last claimed sighting was attended by over 50,000 people. If the children actually saw something, it was not of God; Mary is dead, awaiting her resurrection (see What Happens When You Die?).

1923: Ankara, formerly Angora, became the capital of Turkey.

1939: The German submarine U-47 entered the Scapa Flow anchorage off Scotland and sank the British battleship Royal Oak. The submarine was able to enter the normally inaccessible area due to extraordinarily high tides caused by the coincidence of new moon and perigee (moon at its closest to earth).

1988: The Shroud of Turin (see Shroud Of Turin: A Miraculous Fake?), revered by many as the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, was determined by carbon dating to have been made during the Middle Ages, centuries after He was Crucified.

1990: Slavonic chant was heard across Red Square when the first Russian Orthodox service in more than 70 years was held in St. Basil's Cathedral next to the Kremlin.
