Feast, Fun, Fellowship
John 7:37-38 (KJB) In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Many of us are a familiar with attending a church celebration or reunion. It often combines a feast of food, good fellowship, and family-oriented fun, ultimately pointing to Jesus Christ.
This verse is referring to the Jewish observance of the feast of Tabernacles. This was a Jewish holy day with a special celebration, food, and special water (taken from the pool of Siloam). This life-giving water (picture of Jesus Christ) was drawn in pitchers and taken to the temple. This gathering was an ancient custom commanded by God to be observed by the Jewish people.
Celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles is important to Jewish people to this day in celebrating the joy and provision of God.
This living water is flowing from God to mankind in ancient times through the Pool of Siloam during a feast, fun, and fellowship. Today the Living water is flowing from God to mankind who offers an eternal and joyous feast of salvation to whosoever will come in faith.
