THE LAST GREAT DAY OF
THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES
Here in Missouri at Nathan and Tara Chapman's home it is Sunday the 7th of October 2012. It is the last great day of the Feast of Tabernacles. It is the day recorded in John 7:37.
"In the last day, the great day of the feast….." And Jesus went on to tell them He was the living water.
IT HAS BEEN A MISTAKE MY MANY FEAST KEEPING GROUPS, to think Jesus was on the day that comes tomorrow - the Last Great Feast, the "octave" day mentioned in Lev.23.
NO, Jesus was talking on the 7th day of the Feast of Tabernacles in John 7:37.
And chapter 8 of John was the next day, the "octave" day - the Last Great Feast of the Lord in the annual Festivals He ordained and set in motion with the children of Israel. Feasts that have a mighty huge meaning in the plan of salvation the Eternal God is working out here below. And as John 8 shows the eyes of the blind shall be opened, but that is another study for that particular Feast day.
The Spirit of the Lord will be poured out as never before during the 1,000 year age. All people and nations will walk in the ways of the Eternal God. The Law and Word of God will go forth from Zion and Jerusalem.
It is written the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea beds - that is hard for the human mind in this age to imagine. But it will come to pass.
On that last 7th day of the Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus took the water ceremony that the priests had and turned it into an example of Himself, that He was the true water that gives life. As we cannot live without water, in this physical life, so to live in eternal life we need Jesus the Savior - the spiritual water that gives everlasting life.
Earlier in John 4 Jesus gave the same example to the Samaritan woman at the well. The water Jesus could give was a well of water springing up to everlasting life.
FOR THE DETAILED TRUTH OF JOHN 7:37 AND JOHN 8, YOU WILL FIND MY STUDY UNDER THIS SECTION.
A GOOD STUDY FOR THIS LAST DAY OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES. FOR MANY A TRUTH THEY DID NOT KNOW BEFORE; FOR OTHERS A TRUTH THAT CORRECTS A FALSE ERROR OF TEACHING THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR DECADES.
I PRAY YOU ARE STILL LOVING TO FIND TRUTH, TO SEARCH FOR IT, TO HUNGER FOR IT, AND THAT WHEN FOUND YOU GREATLY REJOICE IN IT.
