God Tabernacles

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.  And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”  Revelation 21:1-4

It appears that the fulfillment of all is at the feast of Tabernacles, which is shortly after the Day of Atonement.  This is when Jesus will hand the kingdom over to the Father.  “then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power.  For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet.  The last enemy to be abolished is death.”  1 Corinthians 15:24-26.  The above Revelation passage says there will be no more death, hence it is at the end of Jesus’ 1,000 year Jubilee reign.  The Jubilee will start on the day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27).  6,000 years from the Fall is 1874; a little past half way through the next 1,000 years is 2402 AD.  The 1,000 year Jubilee would end about 3402 AD.  So the Jubilee will start and end with the feast of tabernacles (or Booths or Sukkots).  This will be strongly enforced throughout the Jubilee:

“Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths.  And it will be that whichever of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, there will be no rain on them.  If the family of Egypt does not go up or enter, then no rain will fall on them; it will be the plague with which the Lord smites the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.  This will be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.”  Zechariah 14:16-19
