"Tabernacles and Palm Branches"

 
Hi John and Doves,

Today is the last and greatest day of the Feast Of Tabernacles! After reading up on the 4 species, it hit me why the huge amount of people who appear in heaven - Revelation 7:9 - are waving palm branches. The Palm branches represent uprightness and is the backbone of the 4 species. Please read the links and watch the short video clip. Absolutely fascinating. If the palm branch is removed from the lulav, it is left without a spine. The palm branch is also a symbol of victory, triumph and (drum roll) eternal life) See the wikipedia link.

We must remember that Hanukkah is a belated Tabernacles. I'm hoping Jean Stepnoski will share her wisdom here again. She's written some beautiful stuff on Hanukkah.

Maranatha, LORD Jesus.
