The Feast of Sukkot | Wedding Feast and Rededication of the Covenant

The Feast of Sukkot is the final feast of the three Fall Feasts of the Lord. There are mysteries hidden within this last feast. 

The Feast of Sukkot is about…

  • Observing God’s appointed time
  • Abiding in God’s instruction
  • Remembering God’s provision
  • A rededication of the covenant

The Feast of Sukkot is a picture of a supernatural wedding feast and rededication of the covenant.

How is Sukkot Like a Wedding Feast? Hint: The Huppah (Chuppah)

Many observe the Feast of Sukkot by building temporary dwellings called sukkahs (or sukkot, plural of sukkah). These dwellings are a remembrance of God’s provision and protection as Israel wandered in the desert after their deliverance from the bondage of slavery in Egypt and before entering the Promised Land. 

These sukkahs are similar to a huppah, a canopy that a Jewish couple is married under, symbolizing a covenant union. 

Sukkah means…

  • Dwelling place
  • Tent
  • Booth
  • Tabernacle

This is why the Feast of Sukkot is also referred to as the Feast of Booths or Feast of Tabernacles.

There is a mystery found in this temporary dwelling or tabernacle associated with the Feast of Sukkot.

The Hebrew word for tabernacle is mishkan.

The four Hebrew letters that make up the word mishkan are…

  • Mem—means water, river, lakes, streams, rain
  • Shin (or Sheen)—means supernatural victory, resurrection, divinely appointed time, promise
  • Kaf—means the palm of the hand, to cover, allow, atone 
  • Nun (or Noon)—means an increase, life, multiplication, a fish

Blessings Are Released During the Feast of Sukkot

If you look at the Feast of Sukkot and the symbols associated with it through a Hebraic lens, you can see that God desires to meet and dwell with you, specifically at this time He marked on His calendar. 

The Lord will provide a protective covering for you as you meet with Him during this divine appointment. He desires to release life and equip you to walk in supernatural victory.

Just as rain is symbolic of blessings and provision, when you abide in the protection of God, He provides all you need for your heavenly assignment. In fact, you can expect Him to do more as you rest in His glory throughout the coming year. 

  • “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”—Philippians 4:19
  • “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church…”—Ephesians 3:20-21

Observing God’s Appointed Time

You can follow God’s calendar, not out of legalism, but with the heart of alignment, creating synergy in which you can… 

  • Experience the goodness of God
  • Understand and hear His voice
  • Be cleansed from the sin that blocks our purpose through a repentant lifestyle
  • Walk out our Kingdom purposes with a new identity

Time and time again, we hear from those who follow God’s calendar that they notice a pattern in which He renews, restores, and revives their souls. 

The feasts aren’t about salvation. They are about accessing every blessing and inheritance recorded for you in the heavenly places or Courts of Heaven. This inheritance is freely given to you because you are grafted into God’s family—not to be earned but activated. 

  • “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,”—Ephesians 1:3

Abiding in God’s Instruction

These blessings are released in waves, pouring into you like new wine during the feasts. There is a process the Lord takes you through…

  • He gives you an awakening word during Rosh Hashanah
  • He calls you to repent, reflect, and return to Him during Yom Kippur.
  • He asks you to abide in Him and move forward in victory—remaining positioned in His glory—during the Feast of Sukkot.

The enemy will attempt to distract and pull you away from the assignment you have been given during the Fall Feasts. This is all the more reason to remain fixed and positioned in His glory. 

When you commit to your assignment, the Holy Spirit will reveal divine instruction on how to move forward throughout the year. 

He does this when we reset our clocks according to His Word, prioritize Him in our lives, and commit to following His revelatory instruction.

Remembering God’s Provision

Deuteronomy 8:11-17 says…

“‘Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes which I command you today, lest—when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them; and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold are multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied; when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land where there was no water; who brought water for you out of the flinty rock; who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do you good in the end— then you say in your heart, “My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.”’”

Note this passage starts with “beware.” Why would one need to beware and not forget? Because Yeshua said that the enemy is a thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy (see John 10:10). 

As God releases blessings and anointings during the feasts, the enemy is attempting to disrupt

 and steal them. 

We must not forget the Lord’s great provision. This helps us abide in His glory, remembering and realizing that all good and perfect gifts are from Him. 

A Rededication of the Covenant

As you draw near the Lord, specifically during the Feast of Sukkot, the Holy Spirit will set a fire within you. As a result, you are eager to rededicate your covenant with the Lord. 

This rededication of the covenant is likened to a wedding feast because it is an intimate experience taking place in the presence of God. 

When you depart or walk out of the tent or tabernacle—the huppah—you are given divine authority. You are fully empowered to abide in His instruction. 

Move forward and enter the year ahead sealed and prepared to do what He has called you to do for His Kingdom!
