February 8, Nehemiah 8:9-18 Yes God told His people to go drink wine

So here's something for all of you Pharisees to get uptight about, God told the people to rejoice and have a party and in the process drink wine and be merry.  And no it was not a non-alcoholic grape juice but wine. For a further example go read Deuteronomy 14:22-26, this may also give more light on what the tithe was originally supposed to be.  But I digress, this is a feast and a holy day because the people have returned to God and the Holy Spirit is moving in them. I think that as gentiles we miss out on some of the Jewish celebrations. The feast of booths or tabernacles as it's also called is a time when they live in tents, remembering the years in the wilderness. The church celebrates typically Christmas and Easter, and in some places a few other holy days but the Jewish feasts point so clearly to Christ and God's provisions. Maybe if we spent a week in tents, or two weeks cleaning all of the bread crumbs out of our houses we'd appreciate God's blessings more.
