Numbers 29.12 – Feast of Tabernacles in the seventh month for seven days

An important event in the life of an ancient Israelite was the observance of the Feast of Tabernacle.

Are we surprised to discover what month the Lord chose for them to celebrate this feast and for how many days? The Bible says,

“On the fifteenth day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work, and you shall keep a feast to the LORD seven days” (Numbers 29.12). 

The Lord loves seven, and so they celebrated this feast in the seventh month for seven days.

For seven days, He wanted them go to camping, even after they had entered the Land of Canaan that future generations might remember the sojourn of the fathers in the wilderness after leaving Egypt.

It is good for us to remember what the Lord has done for us through past generations, because we are what we are today, and we have what we have today, because of the Lord’s dealings with the generations that have gone before us.
