Sukkoth Blessing

Season of Rejoicing

This is glorious and this is the LORD’s doing. It is wonderful in His sight.

Then The LORD spoke to Moses saying, “Speak to the children of Israel saying; the fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord.” (Leviticus 23:33-34)

At that time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly form the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt. And on the eighth day they held a sacred assembly, for they observed the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days. (2 Chronicles 7:8-9)

Sukkoth Blessing Day 1


Fresh breeze blowing with welcoming nod,
Harvest season of Ingathering, fruit of God
Exciting, fresh, yet always profound
Creation groaning, take new ground
Festivals, Mo’edim, rehearsals designed
We’ve celebrated many, yes numerous times

You ordained it a statute at every fall
Preparation and planning until last trump call
When you shall gather Your people, caught up
And bring us all home, where we shall sup
Glorious event with all of heavens guest
Adorned, decorated, it is in Christ, we are dressed

Come sit at My table the banquet prepared
For all who have answered, now have a chair
There are seats for many not yet assigned
So sowing and reaping will require more time

Do not grow weary nor worry I’ve forgotten
Contend for the many they are fruit of My begotten
I will not forget the hard work-labor of love
When at last they are born again from above
When In eternity with Me, forever celebrated
Ingathering and Sukkoth, My love emanated

John 15:16
“You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He
may give to you.
