ROBERT: You can have an indoor Sukkah. You can have a rustic Sukkah. You can have a Sukkah in a tent. You can decorate your Sukkah. You can light up your Sukkah. You can picnic in your Sukkah. You can sleep in your Sukkah. But as you enter your Sukkah remember God wants to tabernacle with you. Enjoy the fun of celebration with Him. Anticipate. Call out to God for His glory to come and meet you in that Sukkah. At Tabernacles God wants to draw you into His presence to experience His glory. Now more than of any other feast I believe Tabernacles is a feast for Christians. The Bible says this is a feast specifically for Gentiles who worship the Lord. Zechariah14: “The time will come when people from among the Gentiles will worship the King.” How many of you are included in that description?

AUDIENCE: (CLAPPING AND RAISING HANDS)

ROBERT: Well worship the King the Lord almighty and celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. This day this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing. So if you’re a Gentile who worships the God of Israel this feast is for you. There’s a second reason why “Tabernacles” is important for Christians and to explain that I want to answer the question when was Jesus born? We know He wasn’t born December 25th cause shepherds don’t keep their flocks in the fields in late December in Israel. Some say well we can’t really know when He was born. But maybe we can. In Luke 1:5 we’re told that Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist, was the priest of the “Order of Aviyah.” The priesthood was divided into different orders. Each order was assigned a specific time of the year to serve in the Temple. 1Chronicles 24 tells us the priests of Aviyah served in the Temple during the 12th through the 18th of the month of Sivan, which is basically in June. And we’re told that during those days when Zechariah was serving in the Temple an angel came to him and told him that when he went home to his wife Elizabeth she would get pregnant and give birth to the forerunner of the Messiah. Now I can’t prove this tells us when Jesus was born but I think it’s very interesting. The angel appears to Zechariah during the 12th through the 18th of Sivan. He completes his time in the Temple, packs up, goes home to his wife and assuming he got busy you know on the angelic assignment right away—

AUDIENCE: (LAUGHTER) ROBERT: —we could think Elizabeth may have conceived around the 25th of Sivan. If she had a normal pregnancy of 285 days John the Baptist would have been born on the 15th of Nisan which just happen to be Passover. The one who came in the spirit and power of Elijah did come on Passover. Now Luke 1:36 says Elizabeth was six months pregnant when Jesus was conceived. So if Elizabeth conceived on the 25th of Sivan and you count six months then her sixth month would have been the 25th day of Kislev and that would have been when Jesus was conceived. That just happens to be “Hanukkah,” the “Feast of Lights.” The Light of the world was conceived in the Feast of Lights! So while Jesus was probably was not born in December, He was probably conceived in December. And if Jesus was conceived Kislev 25 and Mary had a normal pregnancy of 285 days the birth of Jesus would have been on the 15th of Tishri which just happens to be The Feast of Tabernacles.
