The Last and Greatest Day
In addition to a second set of Ten Commandments, Moses also went down Mount Sinai with God’s instructions to build the tabernacle—a movable sanctuary for worshiping God (Ex 34:27–35).
For seven days, those who were willing brought offerings, such as gold, silver, linen and wood, for its construction. To commemorate this joyous event, God designated these days as the Feast of Tabernacles. And He commanded the Israelites to celebrate this feast every year by building booths made of tree branches. This is why this feast is also known as the Feast of Booths.
The Feast of Tabernacles is also kept in the New Testament times. However, the building of the tabernacle and of the booths represent gathering the people of God, who are compared to wood (Jer 5:14) and temple materials (Eph 2:20–22). During the Feast of Tabernacles, the New Covenant is preached and all those willing to hear come to the Savior to receive the Holy Spirit.
“‘If anyone believes in me, rivers of living water will flow out from that person’s heart.’”
John 7:38 (NLT)
Today, the World Mission Society Church of God celebrates the Feast of Tabernacles according to the teachings of Christ Ahnsahnghong. For seven days, willing members preach about the teachings of Christ and the way to receive eternal life. And on the last and greatest day of the feast, all those who believe receive the Holy Spirit from the Saviors in this age—the Spirit and the Bride.
