Notes from message:

Tabernacles:

  • Remembering-temporary, makeshift shelters made from ornamental trees, God’s provision (manna and water) and protection, preventing them becoming too content.
  • Rejoicing-in the fulfilled rest in Christ, going up to Jerusalem, Philippians 4:4, covenant (7th feast, 7th month, 7th day-7 bullocks).
  • Anticipating-final fulfilment in new heavens and earth when God dwells with man.
