Camping In Heaven

Camping In Heaven

Chag Sukkot is the Hebrew name for the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles. This was because, during the feast, every worshiper camped out in a sukkah; a type of tent, under the skies of Jerusalem.

There is a profound truth here. Israel was home in the Promised Land, and you don’t normally camp out at home. But God wanted them to remember the days when they journeyed through the wilderness in tents, and when God camped out with them.

The Promised Land speaks of Heaven, and the wilderness speaks of this present life. Nothing here lasts forever, and all your circumstances are only tents on your journey to the place where things do last forever. Remember, you’re camping.

In the Promised Land, you’ll dwell in places that never pass away. And there you’ll remember this life as the days of your camping out; as tents in which you slept the night. And you’ll give thanks and say “how lovely were your dwelling places”- because God was there with you – those were the days of your journeying when you camped out with God in tents.

As Moses went into the tent, the pillar of cloud would come down and stay at the entrance, while the Lord spoke with Moses. Exodus 33:9

Today, view this world and this life in a new way as a camping trip, where everything is a temporary tent – and live in view of your final destination – heaven.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
