For further information on the extension of the “festival of booths” into the time of the millennium, see the book Paradise Restored to Mankind—By Theocracy!, chapter 22, and particularly pages 400 to 402; compare also pages 53-57, 79-90 and 106-115. The Christian reality foreshadowed by this festival started to be fulfilled from the day of Pentecost, 33 C.E. The joy of the congregation was eclipsed when the great apostasy set in. However, with the release of spiritual Israel from Babylon the Great in 1919, after World War I, the ingathering, first of the anointed remnant and then of the “great crowd,” was resumed, and with it the antitypical “festival of booths.” This is an ongoing festival, celebrated “from year to year,” on through the time of the resurrection of the dead. It will end only after the final test of perfected mankind, when all who successfully meet the test become at last permanent residents on earth.
