||A Deeper Look Into the Feast of Booths
In this article, we go beyond what was presented in our documentary film The Pure Convocations, offering up greater insight into this prophetic and highly illustrative feast celebration.

The final festival of the Hebrew agricultural year is Feast of Booths, also known as Feast of Tabernacles, Feast of Ingathering, and Sukkot. It has special significance for the people of Yah, which is laid out in Leviticus 23:33-43. Though we have covered this feast in detail in the documentary film, The Pure Convocations, I have been inspired to provide additional points via this article. In that video we stated in the Recap portion that no one has to actually be in physical tents for this feast, since your body fulfills what the original booths or temporary dwellings pointed to. While we believe this is true in every sense, I have to stress that this in no way means that you should not reside in a temporary dwelling for this feast. If you are physical able to, by all means, we encourage you to memorialize this experience to the fullest, even though we cannot observe the feast to the exact letter of the law.
In verse 42 of Leviticus 23 we are told:
42 For seven days you must live outside in little shelters. All native-born Israelites must live in shelters.
This was a command given to the people of Israel, but it came with other specifics, which cannot be fulfilled in the lands we have been scattered to. For one thing, as we’ve previously stated, “Yah used to choose the places where we held these feasts, as commanded in Deuteronomy 16:15. This required us to be a nation under Yah’s leadership. The places Yah eventually chose while we were a nation varied from Shiloh (Joshua 18:1), from which his spirit eventually departed (1 Samuel 4:22) to Jerusalem. His presence has since departed Jerusalem as well, and we are scattered in captivity. Therefore, we cannot keep this feast as scripturally commanded until we are gathered.”
This means that, in order to properly fulfill Leviticus 23, we cannot just shoot off a list of places where we’d like to observe this feast, gather there, pitch tents, and feel we are in perfect harmony with the letter of the law. This is why we stress the importance of fulfilling the spirit of the law, because the letter is impossible to fulfill in some cases. That said, verse 43 of Leviticus 23 gives us Yah’s reason for the observance of Feast of Booths..
