Shemini Atzeret – The 8th Day Assembly

Shemini Atzeret- The 8th Day Assembly is the next chapter in Feasts of the Seventh Month video series. In this chapter, we talk about the last day of Sukkot (Tabernacles),Shemini Atzeret, and explain its prophetic significance on the Revelation Timeline. We also talk about how we as Yeshua’s people can be protected from harm during the end times. But before we dive in, let us do a quick review on what we learned in the previous chapter on Chag Sukkot. And then, once we understand the significance of Chag Sukkot, we can continue on to understand the Shemini Atzeret (or the 8th Day Assembly).

Chag Sukkot Review

In the last chapter on Chag Sukkot, we saw how the pilgrimage Feast of Tabernacles (Chag Sukkot) is symbolic of the third phase of the Ancient-Hebrew Wedding Ceremony (or in Hebrew, Nissuin). We also saw how the term nissuin means “carried aloft”. And it is called this because the groom would literally go for his bride, and then he would carry his bride aloft, one way or another, from the bride’s father’s house to his father’s house. Then in his father’s house, they would have the consummation of the marriage and then a week-long wedding feast together.

Historically, we saw an example of this back in the days of Avraham’s servant Eliezer. The father (Avraham) sent his servant Eliezer to take a bride for his son. Rivka (Rebecca) was chosen, and she literally rode on a camel and was carried aloft back to Eliezer’s master’s house (Avraham’s house) where she was united with her husband Yitzhak (Isaac). And then they consummated the marriage and presumably had a week-long wedding feast together to begin their new life. That is the tradition as it was back in those days.

For more about Chag Sukkot, please view the Chag Sukkot study here. Now, we want to go into deep details on Shemini Atzeret (the 8th Day Assembly), which ends Yahweh’s Feasts for the year.
