The appointed time of Tabernacles

We see in scriptures the appointed time of Tabernacles. For example here in Leviticus 23:33-36

Leviticus 23:33-36
33 Then Yahuwah spoke to Moses, saying,
34 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the appointed time of Tabernacles for seven days to Yahuwah.
35 On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it. 36 For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahuwah. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahuwah. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it.

The word tabernacles here comes from the word cukkah and it means a booth or temporary shelter.

Interestingly we see that this shown a little differently when we read the renewed covenant. Here the word we see means to dwell. For example:

John 1:14
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

The word we see here as dwelt, means to tabernacle. Interestingly, it means a time that He shall dwell among us as well.

So I thought this was interesting. It got me thinking about the one who leads the second goat into the wilderness. It is described as a man who is prepared for the task. Is this Yahshua himself? The one who tabernacles with His people??

Leviticus 16:21
21 Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man.

So perhaps it is He who is pitching His tent with us?

John 1:14 (again)
14 And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

Interestingly the word we see in Exodus 23:16 and Exodus 34:22 is a little different. Here the word used is ingathering.

Exodus 23:16
16 and the Feast of Harvest, the firstfruits of your labors which you have sown in the field; and the Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labors from the field.

It comes from this word:

So the father teaches that His dwelling among us is His tabernacle. The same as it was in the Days of Moses – Elohim tabernacled (dwelt) with Man.

Revelation 21:3
And I hear a great voice out of heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle (dwelling place) of Elohim is with Men, and He will dwell with them and they shall be His people and Elohim himself shall be with them, and be their Elohim.”

Yahuwah Bless.
