Sermon – “The First Great Edict” – by Garner Ted Armstrong

When Jesus Christ establishes His Kingdom on this earth, just after He has overthrown all human government and set His feet upon the Mount of Olives, what will be the first edict that He will issue?

Zechariah 14:4 and 16-19,
“4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley…”

“16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. 17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. 18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.”

Is the Feast of Tabernacles important to God? Does God command our presence at His Feast? Yes, on both counts.
