The fallen Sukkah – a dream

I heard a loud thump and even the ground shook from the impact when something fell on the land. I quickly recognized that the sound of the thump was David’s fallen tabernacle.

I never heard this before and the realization immediately awoke me so I called friends who could help…

I know this dream is related to Amos 9:11 and Acts 15:16 but I’m praying for the meaning as this was such a startling sound!

In Amos 9:11 the word fallen נָפַל means:
to fall, lie, be cast down, fail, to prostrate oneself before, fall upon or attack, fall away, throw down, assign by lot


סֻכָּה in Scripture

Job 36:29 – Can anyone understand the spreading of the clouds, the thundering of His sukkah?

Psa 18:11 – He made darkness His hiding place, His sukkah around Him, Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies.

Psa 31:20 – You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man; You keep them secretly in a sukkah from the strife of tongues.

Isa 1:8 – The daughter of Zion is left like a sukkah in a vineyard, like a watchman’s hut in a cucumber field, like a besieged city.

Isa 4:6 – There will be a sukkah to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain.

Scripture wasn’t written in chapter form so I think that to understand the full context of Amos 9:11, we need to read Amos 8 too, as it refers to the end of summer fruit, cheating the poor, shaking the earth, our festivals became more like times of mourning, the rising of the Nile (representing the role of Africa), the famine on the land for hearing the voice of Adonai, and the falling of the false idols from Dan to Beersheva.

Could we be living in Amos 8 days today? And if so then Amos 9 days are coming when we’ll see the L-rd standing beside the altar saying, “Smite the capitals so that the thresholds will shake, and break them on the heads of them all!”

I know this goes against the many prophetic words of soon coming prosperity and restoration, which we’d all love to see. But I’m still shaking from the sound of the fallen sukkah and it’s not an accident that this happened at the end of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles and it’s linked to 9:11 of Amos.

The good news is that in the end we’ll see the promises of restoration and Aliyah!!!
