Nehemiah and the Open Book

In the book of Nehemiah, there is a partial fulfillment of tabernacles. It's found in verses 7:73 through 8:18. Here we read of a solemn gathering of the people that took place in the seventh month, the time of the fall feasts.

Ne 8:1 And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.

Here in this verse are four things you should hear with spiritual ears. First, the people come into unity. Second the water gate speaks of the pouring out of the Spirit, Third, Ezra the scribe is a type of the Holy Spirit because a scribe is one who writes out the Law, and the Spirit is the one who inspired the writers of the bible. Fourth, the scribe brings the 'book of the law', this points to The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

This chapter goes on to describe how Ezra read from the book and taught the people to understand it's meaning. There are 10 or 12 references, depending on how you count them, which imply that the people received and understood the meaning of the word. This harkens back to the idea that Tabernacles is the Feast of the Open Book. And it also speaks of the opening of the seven-sealed scroll in Revelation. And of course opening the book that was sealed once again speaks of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Let's look at this in detail.
