Building the Sukkah for Sukkot

I am preaching tomorrow when sunsets comes we will enter the greatest of Israel's feasts, the feast of Tabernacles or more rightly known as the Feast of tents. We are building a Sukkah (tent) for Sukkot (tents). In Sabah we may not have all the right trees and leaves but we make do in the light of the Messiah. It is the symbolic reference which is more significant and profound for those believers in Jesus Christ.
Tomorrow's will be a long sermon. I may hit 2 hours. I have 3 full pages of notes written up more than double that I normally write for a full sermon. It will be on texts from Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 16 in the First Testament or Hebrew Bible and then John 7 from our New Testament.
