We in the Church probably have more money at our disposal at the Feast of Tabernacles to spend on ourselves and our families than any other time of the year. So some are beginning to look at the Feast of Tabernacles as a vacation primarily, rather than realizing its basic purpose. The Feast of Tabernacles has a particular purpose for us. Let's turn back to Exodus 19 where God began preparing the people for the Ten Commandments. Beginning in verse 10: "And the Lord said unto Moses, Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments [this was for something significant], and be ready by the third day; for on the third day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people... whoever touches the mountain shall be put to death" (RSV). And he warned them again in verse 15, "... Be ready by the third day..." And in verse 16, "... the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled."
