Shades of Autumn on an August Morning

     Yesterday evening it was cooler than it's been all Summer, so we turned off the air and opened the windows...  Results:  This morning the house is 60 degrees. It feels refreshing.  And, makes me think of the seasons to come.  Autumn is my favorite time of year.  Sweater weather.  The trees recalling  & reliving God's glorious color schemes.  Roasting marshmallows around the firepit. Planning for Fall... and Winter..
     Feast of Tabernacles is less than a month away.  We will decorate our "Sukkah", and celebrate the arrival of the Only True King - Yeshua Ha' Meshiach - Jesus, the Messiah.  Known as Sukkot, Feast of Tabernacles, and Feast of Booths, this is one of the 7 Feast Days pronounced by Adonai - the LORD God.  There are both Jewish and Christian scholars who believe that the Feast of Tabernacles is when Jesus  was born; i.e., "He was 'tabernacled' among us."  There is persuasive evidence in both the New and Old Testaments that the birth of Christ was during the Feast of Tabernacles.  Historical records,  weather patterns, even the records of astronomers support this idea.
           What a beautiful story the Holy Scriptures tell if one is willing to "study to show thyself approved..."  Many clues are given in the Scriptures, but one must first have the knowledge of Jewish customs to understand the depth of the New Testament message.
            More about the Feast Days on another day.             Shalom, y'all,     Twyla
