Feast of Tabernacles

Feast of tabernacles

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD. On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein. These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day: Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the LORD Leviticus 23:33.

For the law having a shadow of good things to come (a representation; a shadow of heavenly things, see Hebrews 8:5.), and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year Hebrews 10:1-3.

The word shadow G4639 skia; �shade� or a shadow (literally or figuratively [darkness of error or an adumbration]): shadow.

Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail (G2571 kaluma; is from G2572; a cover, that is, veil: vail. G2572 kaluptō; Akin to G2813 and G2928; to cover up: cover, hide. G2813 kleptō; to filch: steal. G2928 kruptō; to conceal (properly by covering): hideself, keep secret, secretly. the same vail, cover) is upon their heart (G2588 kardia; the thoughts, feelings: mind). Nevertheless when it (the mind) shall turn to the Lord, the vail (cover) shall be taken away (removed). Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty 2Corinthians 3:13-17.

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day 2Peter 3:8.

After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord 2Corinthians 5:1-8.

And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly 1Corinthians 15:49.

For this corruptible (flesh) must put on incorruption (spiritual body), and this mortal must put on immortality 1Corinthians 15:53. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself Philppians 3:20-21.

Daniel’s prophecy the confirmation of the Covenant with many for one week.

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks (7 weeks), and threescore and two weeks (62 weeks): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off (crucified), but not for himself (Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, see 1Peter 3:18): and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate Daniel 9:24-27.

Scripture is simply saying the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks (7 weeks) and after threescore and two weeks (after the passing of the 62 week shall Messiah be cut off (crucified). Note that 7 weeks and 62 weeks is 69 weeks. Thus, after the passing of the 69 week the Messiah was crucified, and that marked the beginning of the 70th week, that is, the last week of Daniel’s prophecy. There is no reason to believe the unfolding of Daniel’s prophecy timeline stopped when the Messiah was crucified. In fact, at that point it was the beginning of the 70th week, that is, the final week of Daniel’s prophecy. There has not been a gap the unfolding of Daniel’s prophecy timeline.

At this point of Daniel’s prophecy the Messiah had come and was crucified.

The prophetical hour is also known as the “last time” and also known as the time of Jacob’s trouble, tribulation and great tribulation.

Little children, it is the last time (the last prophetical hour): and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there
many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time 1John 2:18. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even
the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it Jeremiah 30:7. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:
and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall
make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate Daniel 9:27. Tribulation and
anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man
that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God Romans 2:9-11. For verily,
when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as IT CAME TO PASS, and ye know 1Thessalonians 3:4.

Daniel’s prophesied the last one week, that week signified the last time, an prophetical hour.

There remaineth therefore a rest (G4520 sabbatismos; a �sabbatism�, that is, rest) to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest (in Christ), he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief Hebrews 4:9-11. Therefore if any man be “in Christ” (Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest), he is a new creature (put on Christ, see Galatians 3:27, put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness, see Ephesians 4:24, put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all, see Colossians 3:10.

For he is our peace, who hath made both [Jew and Gentile] one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances [The ministration of death (and condemnation), written and engraven in stones (God gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God, see Exodus 31:18. the ten commandments)]; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both [Jew and Gentile] unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity [the old man, flesh, the carnal mind, and his works, see Romans 8:6-8, Colossians 3:9; the old man is dead] thereby Ephesians 2:14-16): old things [the old man, flesh, the carnal mind and the literal, carnal works of the law] are passed away; behold, all things are become new (And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly 1Corinthians 15:49. Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself Philippians) 2Corinthians 5:17.

The law represented heavenly things, and not the very image of the things; Jesus Christ is the very thing the law represented; Jesus Christ is our sabbath. Christ is our sabbath (rest).

Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified Galatians 2:16. The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil (literal, carnal works of the law are evil works, worthy of repentance) John 7:7. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works (literal, carnal works of the law is dead works, worthy of repentance), and of faith toward God Hebrews 6:1. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light Matthew 11:28-30.

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ 1Corinthians 15:51-57.

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance Acts 2:1-4.

The expression .. seven days ..

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks (7 weeks), and threescore and two weeks (62 weeks): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off (crucified), but not for himself (Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, see 1Peter 3:18): and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate Daniel 9:24-27.

Scripture is simply saying the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks (7 weeks) and after threescore and two weeks (after the passing of the 62 week shall Messiah be cut off (crucified). Note that 7 weeks and 62 weeks is 69 weeks. Thus, after the passing of the 69 week the Messiah was crucified, and that marked the beginning of the 70th week, that is, the last week of Daniel’s prophecy. There is no reason to believe the unfolding of Daniel’s prophecy timeline stopped when the Messiah was crucified. In fact, at that point it was the beginning of the 70th week, that is, the final week of Daniel’s prophecy. There has not been a gap the unfolding of Daniel’s prophecy timeline.

He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire (signified a burning flame, a consuming light; in Christ): there shall be wailing (weeping; For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes Revelation 7:17. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away Revelation 21:4) and gnashing of teeth (the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth Revelation 11:8). Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear Matthew 13:37-43.

The expression .. ye shall keep it (the sabbath, Christ is our sabbath, rest) a feast (H2282 châg; a festival, or a victim therefore: – [solemn] feast [day], sacrifice, solemnity) unto the LORD seven days (There is no reason to believe the unfolding of Daniel’s prophecy timeline stopped when the Messiah was crucified. In fact, at that point it was the beginning, the first day of the 70th week, that is, the final week of Daniel’s prophecy. There has not been a gap the unfolding of Daniel’s prophecy timeline. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know 1Thessalonians 3:4. the first day the 70th week) in the year ..

The expression .. in the year ..

[Jesus said] The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord (the acceptable year is Jubile) Luke 4:18-19.

The acceptable year of the Lord is referring to Jubile.

And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year (Jubile), and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family Leviticus 25:10.

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven (Beware of the leaven, doctrine of scribes and Pharisees, lawgivers), neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness (I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils 1Corinthians 10:20-21); but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth (I am that bread of life John 6:48. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever John 6:47-58) 1Corinthians 5:7-8.

Once you are enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and made partakers of the Holy Spirit, you have tasted the good word of God. Jesus Christ the bread of life, the bread of Heaven, heavenly manna.

For the law having a shadow of good things to come (a representation; a shadow of heavenly things, see Hebrews 8:5.), and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year Hebrews 10:1-3.

The word shadow G4639 skia; �shade� or a shadow (literally or figuratively [darkness of error or an adumbration]): shadow.

Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail (G2571 kaluma; is from G2572; a cover, that is, veil: vail. G2572 kaluptō; Akin to G2813 and G2928; to cover up: cover, hide. G2813 kleptō; to filch: steal. G2928 kruptō; to conceal (properly by covering): hideself, keep secret, secretly. the same vail, cover) is upon their heart (G2588 kardia; the thoughts, feelings: mind). Nevertheless when it (the mind) shall turn to the Lord, the vail (cover) shall be taken away (removed). Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty 2Corinthians 3:13-17.

Spiritually the number seven is a cardinal number; as the sacred full one, week, the completion of the week.

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month Joel 2:23. Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth Hosea 6:1-3.

And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done Rev 22:1-6.

The expression .. all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths (we are all Israel) ..

Abraham begat Isaac, Isaac begat Jacob; And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel Genesis 35:10. Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations), see Romans 4:16-17.

We are all one blood in Christ.

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood (Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all Hebrews 10:9-10.

And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore Ezekiel 37:22-28.

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (H6005 ‛immânû’êl; with us (is) God) Isaiah 7:14. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for HE SHALL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS Matthew 1:21. In him was life (the Eternal Spirit); and the life was the light of men John 1:4. For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul (H5315 nephesh; a breathing creature) Leviticus 17:11. God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation 2Corinthians 5:19. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace Isaiah 9:6.

The Covenant of Peace, that is, the New Blood Covenant.

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts (Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself Matthew 22:37-39): and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away Hebrews 8:10-13.

We are all one household, one family in Christ.

For by one Spirit are we all baptized (washed) into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit (living water, the Holy Spirit) 1Corinthians 12:13.

Jesus is our peace, who hath made both one (Jews and Gentiles), and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both (Jews and Gentiles) unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity (flesh, the old man and his works of the law) thereby (crucified): And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both (Jews and Gentiles) have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit Ephesians 2:14-22.

When all things (in heaven and in earth) shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all 1Corinthians 15:28.

For he is our peace, who hath made both [Jew and Gentile] one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances [The ministration of death (and condemnation), written and engraven in stones (God gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinaitwo tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God, see Exodus 31:18. the ten commandments)]; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both [Jew and Gentile] unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity [the old man, flesh, the carnal mind, and his works, see Romans 8:6-8, Colossians 3:9; the old man is dead] thereby Ephesians 2:14-16): old things [the old man, flesh, the carnal mind and the literal, carnal works of the law] are passed away; behold, all things are become new (And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly 1Corinthians 15:49. Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself Philippians) 2Corinthians 5:17.

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent John 6:29.

Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly 1Corinthians 15:46-49.

The law represented heavenly things, and not the very image of the things. Jesus Christ is the very thing the law represented; feast of tabernacles signified Jesus Christ. We are “all” in Christ and we will “all” be changed at the last trumpet. We are “all” a new creature in Christ, our earthy body, flesh, was only a temporary tabernacle, tent.
