sermonette: Seeking A New Home
Given 15-Oct-19; Sermon #FT19-02s; 18 minutes
Clyde Finklea, connecting the Millennium and the Feast of Tabernacles to dwelling in booths, argues compellingly, drawing on the research of E. W. Bullinger, that our Savior was born on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, September 29, 4 B.C. As the ancient Israelites lived in booths during their trek through the wilderness to the Promised Land, so Jesus Christ "tabernacled" with us in a physical body, a metaphorical tent, preparing a permanent dwelling for His called-out ones when they enter the Kingdom of God in glorified spiritual bodies. We, along with Father Abraham, are seeking a permanent dwelling in God's Kingdom. In our on-going sanctification process, we are not yet home, but trudging along the way in our spiritual pilgrimage.
