What Does Sukkot Foreshadow?

Everything that God does and decrees has a meaning. From the 6 days of creation to the 7 seven feasts decreed in The Law, everything that God has set has a purpose. There are seven feasts decreed by God; Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles/Booths) is the last feast to be celebrated in the year. If all the feasts have a purpose, what’s the purpose of Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles/Booths)? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he searches through Scripture to find the meaning behind the Feast of Ingathering in his video, What Does Sukkot Foreshadow?

What Does Sukkot Foreshadow?

Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles/Booths/Ingathering)

39 On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the produce of the land, you shall celebrate the feast of the Lord seven days. On the first day shall be a solemn rest, and on the eighth day shall be a solemn rest. 40 And you shall take on the first day the fruit of splendid trees, branches of palm trees and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days. 41 You shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

Leviticus 23:39‭-‬41

During Sukkot, We Look Back To…

Sukkot looks back to the time when the people of Israel had to dwell in booths after the LORD brought them out of Egypt.

42 You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All native Israelites shall dwell in booths, 43 that your generations may know that I made the people of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

Leviticus 23:42-43

During Sukkot, We Look Forward To…

Sukkot (the Feast of Ingathering) foreshadows the millennial reign of Christ when we will dwell in temporary homes until the Judgment and the new earth. On the new earth, we will spend eternity with God and He with us.

1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while.

Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with Him for a thousand years [the Millenial Reign].

Revelation 20:1-6

1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Revelation 21:1-4

Sukkot foreshadows the Millenial Reign of Christ because, during that time, we will temporarily live on this temporary earth for a thousand years with God. This is also the only feast celebrated during the Millenial Reign of Christ because it is the only feast that hasn’t been fulfilled at that time.
