Sukkot: Dwelling With God

In the Scriptures, the English words "dwell" or "abide" are a translation of about a dozen different Hebrew and Greek words. The most frequent Hebrew term for the English word "dwell" is yashav, which is used over 400 times. Another Hebrew word which is translated as "dwell" is shakhan or shakhen which is the root of the Hebrew word Shekinah which is the Hebrew word for the light on the mercy seat which symbolized God’s presence with Man. The Apolstolic Scriptures also tell us that God longs to have his Presence dwelling with us, not just in the form of His Messiah, but of His own accord. From Genesis to Revelation, Jeff explains how God has longed to dwell with Mankind and the lengths He has gone and will go to make it a reality.
