Happy Sukkot!

Today is the first day of Sukkot. In doing some research this afternoon, I stumbled across a page with photos that I created a few years ago after visiting the Western Wall during the celebration. I think it is still relevant and interesting.

As joyous as this festival is, I am more encouraged by knowing that one day the Messiah will not be forced to release terrorists in order to gain freedom for the captives but he will defeat those who fight against Jerusalem. Then, Zechariah says, “the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles” (Zech 14:16).
