31. David's Tent
David's tent is never empty. David's tent is always filled with crowds of people, all rejoicing together as the Heart of God revealed.
31. David's Tent
David was first crowned king over Judah only. For seven and one half years there was civil war in Israel until David was acknowledged as king over all Israel in 1018 BC. David captured and made Jerusalem his capital that same year. The next year or so he focused on building up the city as well as a final defeat of the Philistines. Once David was secure in his city and his rule, he brought the Ark of the Covenant up to Jerusalem. The first attempt to bring up the Ark ended in disaster, but in the second attempt, in early 1015 BC, David followed Moses' instructions and brought up the Ark with joy.
The journey of Israel is the journey of the Ark, the presence of God among His people.
For most of the period of the judges, the Ark resided in the Tabernacle of Moses at Shiloh, in the territory of Ephraim, Joshua's tribe. In 1094 BC it was captured by the Philistines in battle, but they did not keep it long. The Ark ended up in the town of Kirjath-Jearim, just west of Jerusalem, from 1094 to 1016 BC. After David's first attempt to bring it up to Jerusalem, it was kept in the house of Obed-Edom, closer to Jerusalem.
The Ark was in David's tent in his backyard, then from 1015 BC until it was brought up to the temple by Solomon on October 15, 972 BC, a period of 43 years.
Why did God choose the city of Jerusalem as His city? God chose Jerusalem because that was the city David happened to pick. Why did David happen to pick Jerusalem as His city? David chose Jerusalem because that was the city God happened to pick.
This is the Bond of the Covenant, a perfect circle that continues forever, marriage union.
All whom the Father has given Me shall come to Me. John 6. These are the chosen Jerusalem. All who belong to Jesus belong to David and to his city. Jerusalem is all the people, men and women, young and old, all who belong to the Lord Jesus, given to Him by the Father. Jerusalem is a crowded place, filled with every expression of human life.
I want to state again the Covenant you and I have entered into with God and He with us. Romans 8:29 – 1 John 3:2 – 2 Corinthians 3:18. I will write these as confessions of faith.
From the beginning, God determined that I would be just like Jesus, of His same kind – I am just like Jesus as I see Him as He is – As I see Jesus in the mirror, the Spirit of God right now makes me just like Him in a progression from glory to glory. We could add the definition of eternal life, John 17:2; it means the same thing. – I know God and I know Jesus-sent.
At the center of a city is the castle; at the center of the castle is the keep; in the center of the keep is the inner sanctum, the inner throne room, the deepest place of protection out from which all authority flows. I'm using English terminology here; David's inner sanctum was a huge nondescript tent in his backyard, the Holy of Holies. In that Tabernacle of David was the Ark of the Covenant and upon it the Mercy Seat, the Heart and Presence of God, out from which flows all authority.
David's tent is never empty. David's tent is always filled with crowds of people, all rejoicing together as the Heart of God revealed. Hebrews 6:18-20 –
That by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
This refuge into which we have fled, this hope that is set before us, which we have seized with all our might, is the Covenant: being, in all ways, in every respect except honor, just like Jesus in essence, in being, and in relationship with the Father.
God is bound by Word and by Oath to transform us into beings just like Jesus. He does so by Christ becoming us first, and then, the Father, coming in Christ, filling us with all of Himself in Person.
This is what Jesus IS: a Man filled with God.
Augustine destroyed the Covenant by defining Jesus as “God the Son,” and by defining man as evil flesh. The Covenant was then replaced in Christianity with “go to heaven after you die.”
We do not question Jesus' divinity; we refute the separation between God and man. I don't even care for the phrase “fully God and fully man” any more, for it denotes separation. Rather, God, unfolding Himself into visibility, is seen and known by heaven and earth as a Man on His knees to serve.
God is One, the Father, revealing Himself through many.
He that has seen Me has seen the Father. – We shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is.
We cannot walk as Jesus walked unless we think as Jesus thought.
He that says he abides in Him ought himself to walk just as Jesus walked. 1 John 2
How Jesus walked is one of the most important things in the universe there is for us to know. And, of course, we must abide in Him to be part of Him. I want to talk a bit more on this before returning to David's tent.
Jesus could not have walked by the law. No thought of applying the requirements of the law to Himself ever entered His mind. The reason is that the law always carries cursing. Do this and be blessed; do that and be cursed. The law is separation and thinking by the law causes sin. The law is word on the outside, hearing something from outside of one's own heart and being sure to do it. If Jesus had touched such a way of thinking, He would have died.
Yet the law is an expression of God's righteousness, and it must be fulfilled. More than that, Jesus did fill His mind with His Father's words, including all the Father spoke through Moses.
Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day long. Psalm 119:97
But Jesus trusted implicitly that the Father would keep Him in all things regarding the law: He never once trusted His own ability to “do what God wants.” He walked convinced that the Father kept Him, directing His ways to keep all the Father speaks. Of course, Jesus walked by faith, that is, confidence in the presence and ability of the Father, and not by sight, that is, regarding outward things including external requirements.
That left Jesus free to be utterly human. Jesus walked as a human being convinced that the Word God is always speaking was inside of Him, not outside of Him. The Word was His life, Person inside of Person.
Knowing that He was the very Word of God, Jesus depended utterly upon the Father to fulfill through Him all the Father speaks. When Jesus “cried out with vehement cries and tears,” He was not trying to get the Father to “help” Him in the non-helping way Christians have defined, but rather, rising up from that prayer, He walked KNOWING that His every step, regardless of where He placed His foot, was the Father directing His way.
This is David's tent – a man knowing he is filled with God.
Walking any other way then believing that the steps of my own feet ARE God showing me the way to go is to walk in the law and therefore in sin. Yet this believing comes out of a knowing Covenant Bond with a Person, the Father, and it comes through making the Father the biggest and only thing in our sight. Let me explain what I mean when I say, “I fear God.” Job said that what a person fears will come upon him. To fear God is to face and see Him alone. We fear God because He is the only One we want coming upon us.
In complete contrast, most who consider “fearing God,” don't fear Him at all. Rather, they fear sin and punishment. Thus they are continually facing sin, and sin is always coming upon them. But fearing sin and punishment is not the worst problem in the church. The worst problem by far is fearing the face of Eve.
Those who speak evil against others, those who gossip and complain, fear the face of other Christians. They are consumed with jealousy. Why do so many little people speak against Joel Osteen, a man who would never even consider speaking against them? It's because they fear people and not God; that is, they keep other people in their sight and not the God dwelling in those other people.
Because I fear God, He is the only One I see. And because God is the only One I see, I am carried utterly inside His love. And, as John said, there is no fear in love. Yet because Godly fear holds us, we never look anywhere else, but at His heart, and the Desire of His Heart fills ours. In God's heart there is no thought of punishment or curse, therefore we know nothing of such things either.
Those who see sin, flesh, and the devil see not-God. There is no fear of God before their eyes. Those who make the flesh and sin and the requirements of the law the biggest thing in their sight do not fear God at all. They become self-righteous, which is the most offensive thing there is to God.
Jesus kept the law because God directed His steps, and Jesus trusted utterly that God did so. Therefore Jesus never doubted one step, never questioned one human feeling. Inside of this faith/fear, Jesus knew the Father. Therefore, the moment thoughts came to mind that were not of the Father, He knew it instantly. He knew the voice behind those words and closed Himself to that voice immediately. When Jesus counteracted false words with the words of His Father, He was not jousting with the devil. Had He turned to regard the devil, that would have placed the fear of the devil as the guiding light of His walk. He was simply keeping the Father before His eyes by the Father's words.
Thus we also speak Christ, even when faced with our own mistakes. We speak Christ because we regard God and therefore we do NOT fear mistakes. Regarding God IS the conviction that God is already and always KEEPING us. God keeping us is living in the Holy of Holies, in David's tent.
Even when Jesus walked into the curse (hanging upon a tree), He did not "do" that. He continued to trust implicitly in the Father directing His steps, and thus bearing the curse was not sin, but righteousness, for it was entirely of faith.
We are sitting in the same body belonging to God. We share a physical body with God. We also share a spirit body with God. There is another Person in our body/spirit/heart, and we walk constantly with this other Person as Siamese twins walk always together, sharing the same body. Do they share the same spirit as well? I bet they do. That would explain why identical twins separated at birth still follow similar paths and interests and habits in life, and when they meet, it's as if they have always known one another.
You see, we must be able to be utterly human inside the Holiest of God, otherwise it's pretending and all pretending is separate from God.
You know, since writing and speaking "The Day of Atonement," I have felt a penetrating closeness of God KEEPING me. Even the word "The Keep," the most secure place in a castle, is a powerful reality. Besetting lusts are further away from me than ever, yet I have nothing to do with that. The key is the utter Covenant Bond of FORM shared completely with God as an immediate and very real Person.
In the place that I have chosen.
Did you notice how many times God said these words through Moses: In the place that I have chosen. God was referring to the geographical location where the Ark of His Covenant would permanently dwell. In the types and shadows of the real; that PLACE was Jerusalem, the city of David, and more specifically the Tabernacle of David first and the temple of Solomon second.
But the real dwelling place of God is not a house made of stones or a tent made of canvas.
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain . . . John 15:16
In the place that I have chosen.
After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; so that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the Lord who does all these things. Acts 15:16-17; James quoting from Amos 9:11-12
Amos was not speaking about the restoration of a political nation naming itself Israel, but about the birthing of the Church. This is the plain testimony and only understanding of James as he spoke.
Read Amos Chapter 9. Notice this FACT of Christian assertion in today's world.
If I, a Gentile, reject the Covenant God made with Israel through Moses, which Covenant contained one thing only: hear Christ, and if I convert to modern Judaism, which bears only a shadow of Moses, but twisted by the Pharisees in their hatred of Christ, then, according to the accounting of modern Christianity, I am now “of the House of Israel,” of those who are “scattered among the nations,” and God will bring me back to the land as one of Abraham's own, no matter how wickedly I live my life.
But if I, a Gentile, embrace the Covenant God made with Israel through Moses to hear Christ, then I am not become a member of the House of Israel, in spite of what Paul and James so clearly said, and am not counted among those who are scattered, who are kept, and who are brought back into the place of God's choosing. Rather, I am something entirely unrelated to the Covenant of God. To most, I'm just a sinner on my way to heaven.
Do you see the falseness of this balance? Gentile converts to modern Judaism in its rejection of Christ are part of the House of Israel, but converts to Christ in obedience to Moses are NOT?
Don't get me wrong. I believe absolutely that God will honor Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob according to the flesh by bringing back into the Covenant a remnant of those descended by blood from Jacob, exactly as Amos describes. What I reject is the idea that such a “return” will be a political nation built on violence, run by demons, and made up of people who are in no way descended from Jacob.
As God fulfills His honor of Abraham, those who return will come to the Father only through the Lord Jesus Christ, according to the gospel; they will be planted back into the House of God to become one new man with those same Jews who received Christ in the the first century, with John and Paul, with Matthew and Peter, along with all of us Gentiles to whom God showed such favor by planting us into that same nation and into the real Covenant God spoke through Moses, the New Covenant of Christ. As many of these descendants of Jacob enter into the resurrection of Jesus Christ, they will be utterly amazed, for they never knew in their whole lives that they were of Jacob's seed. Notice that Amos said, “The whole house of Israel.”
Consider this undeniable fact. When I speak of God fulfilling in my life His oath and His Covenant with me, to do what He says, to make me just like Jesus in all ways, right here in this life, right now on this earth, Christians claim that I am blaspheming and run away from me in horror.
From whence comes this rejection of the Covenant? Can it come from any other source than the serpent? Is it not a rejection of the boldness of David, the heart of Jesus, a rejection of walking with God by faith?
What is this place and this tent so chosen by God as the seat of His authority and as His dwelling place forever? What is the Holiest, the most belonging-est to God, of all?
The Day of Atonement is on the tenth day of the seventh month; the first Day of Tabernacles is on the fifteenth. There are four non-feast days in between the Atonement and Tabernacles. The first Day of Tabernacles is God's entrance into His eternal dwelling place, God made visible through a Body of people. At the center of God's dwelling place is the Mercy Seat, the throne of heaven, the source of all authority, the beginning of all rivers of life.
That Mercy Seat is our hearts, God's Heart and our hearts merged together fully as one.
Our hearts are the place God has chosen; our hearts are the tent of His presence.
My proposal then is this. We can know our own hearts by looking at our hearts through the framework of God, the metaphors and patterns of God in the Old Testament, David's city and David's tent.
In order to know the Body of Christ, we look through Solomon's temple, just north of David's city. But to know our own hearts, we look through David's tent inside David's city.
Our hearts have become the Atonement of God. – That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith.
Are those two statements not identical? We simply have never believed that God speaks the truth.
David's tent violated almost every strict requirement laid down by Moses. Do you know what was the worst violation? David brought Philistines, PHILISTINES, (re-spelled in our day as “Palestinians”), friends of his who followed him from Gath (today spelled “Gaza”), into the Holy of Holies, into the presence of God, there before the Mercy Seat, to sing and dance and worship together with him before God.
Many of these same “Palestinians” today are descended by blood from Jacob, though they know it not, and have always belonged to Jesus. And here's the wonderful thing about the Tabernacle of David; Khazars, “Scythians” of the north, pretending to be Jews, are also welcome to enter in, welcome with wide open arms.
That the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the Lord who does all these things. – Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. Colossians 3:9-11
Oh, this wicked, wicked distinction between “Jew” and “Gentile” inside the house of God must cease. Did Jesus not bring it to an end in His body upon the cross? There are no Jews in Christ; there are no Gentiles in Christ. There is only one new man, utterly the seed of Abraham. – I am Abraham's seed.
The Church did not “replace” Israel; the Church IS Israel – Israel IS the Church.
– Thus says the Lord who bought you with My own blood upon the cross. Did I not also tear down the wall of separation between Jew and Gentile in My Body as well? Have I not made of My own one people? Is it not I who brings all who belong to Me in My Body before the Father? Will you persist in dishonoring Me and Abraham by calling some of My own “Jews” and others “Gentiles?” Have I not brought Adam to an end? Is there any other way to the Father than through Me? I say to you, 'Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman SHALL NOT be heir with the son of the freewoman.' –
And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd. John 10:16
Some try to teach that there is one gospel for the Jews and another for the Gentiles. They do not know the Zeal of the Lord Jesus Christ for the House of God. – Zeal for Your House has eaten Me up.
Everyone, including every Christian ministry, including the most anointed in the things of God, who is lining up right now with Israel and the Jews is lining up with the Beast in its victory over God's people. Everyone lining up with Israel and the Jews is crying out for the killing of more people as the answer to the human dilemma instead of AND we also ought to lay down our lives.
This is the judgment: a people who change the universe BY laying down their lives for their enemies.
We are finished with the negative side of judgment. God's judgment upon sin is the Mercy Seat. God's judgment upon the accuser is the cessation of his words in the mouth of God's elect, those who speak Christ alone. God's judgment upon the Beast is a people laying down their lives for their enemies.
God's present judgment is for one purpose alone, to sever His Church from all limitation of Christ. The fulfillment of Tabernacles is for us as the escaping of Noah and his family into the Ark. It is the glorious revelation of Christ hidden all through the Bible, seen by many, though they turned it into “the rapture,” the very opposite of God's victory. God wants all who belong to Jesus to live only inside of John 14:20: TABERNACLES!
In the rest of this letter, I will explore the glorious communion we share inside the “David's Tent” view of God's house, living in the Keep of God. Then, in the next letter, “Melchizedek Order,” I will explore again the Mercy Seat, this time from the account of Melchizedek as well as from Paul's definition of Love; this next letter is the conclusion of this series so far. That will be followed by “Tabernacles,” a view of us out from Solomon's Temple; then “We ARE the Body of Christ,” the in-between days of the Feast of Tabernacles. In those two letters, I hope to speak prophetically, calling forth the revelation of Christ. The final two letters are titled, “The Great Day of the Feast,” and “The New World.” They are concerned with the source and the fruit of the river of life.
Even though all of these things will be taking place during the most difficult days of the human experience upon this earth, they are 100% positive.
Now, over the last couple of weeks, I have had before me both this picture of David's tent and the truth of the Melchizedek Order. I have thought that they are utterly tied together, two views of the same thing. I did not know how I must relate them, however, and thus I have held them before God together in the anointing, asking Him to show me.
He has done so. Both David's tent and the Melchizedek order are God's Heart in us, in men and women who are friends of God. David's tent shows us the view we together hold towards God the Father filling us full and Melchizedek shows us the view we together hold towards all who belong to Jesus. Yet both reveal both.
Living in David's tent is living in the Holiest of God. “Turning around” is never “turning away” from God; it is living utterly inside of God and going forth as God revealed.
Let's get the visible picture God gives us first.
Scripture gives neither the dimensions of David's tent nor its exact location. There is no description of its assembly. This is in complete contrast to the descriptions of Moses' Tabernacle and Solomon's Temple. David's tent is completely ad hoc, spontaneous, extemporaneous, coming out without any pre-planning.
In complete contrast, David was a leader of men. And thus his ordering of the people involved with the worship of God was precise and complex. David appointed 24 leaders of praise and worship, each with 11 others making 24 groups of 12. We assume that each group worshipped God for an hour in the Holy of Holies, David's tent, followed by the next, with a 24-7 praise offered up to God over a period of years. Some of these leaders of praise were also psalm writers, Ethan, the sons of Korah, and Asaph.
David's tent was a place of continual worship. Instead of incense arising to God, it was the singing of hearts in love with God. For that reason, we go to the Psalms to find the real essence of that tent.
Now, in perusing the Psalms, I found myself filling pages with portions speaking of living and singing inside the Holy of Holies, God's dwelling place, David's tent. Thus I have had to cut severely down to just a few for these pages. But I learned something of great importance. First, it makes no difference who wrote the Psalm; they are all “of David.” Even Solomon wrote his psalms out from the memory of David's heart and instruction.
As I went through the Psalms, I saw many critical New Testament lines all through them. I saw many times words and thoughts ascribed to Jesus.
When I first gave my heart back to the Lord at age 19, I sat in my room and read the entire book of Psalms in one sitting. I remember the sense of God's presence coming upon me as a result of doing that, the sure knowledge that I was encased utterly in Him, that God is my refuge. May I suggest that you read through, again, the book of Psalms. But read it differently than you ever have before.
In the past you read the Psalms as a “Christian” still approaching God. Now you think only as Jesus thinks, turned around in the Holy of Holies. Read the Psalms as the thoughts of Jesus inside of you as your own thoughts, this same Christ living now as you. The Word is no longer on the outside of you, with you trying to hear and to do. No, this same Word is now your only and very life, all that you are in all you find yourself to be.
As you read in this way, you will find yourself inside the Feast of Tabernacles, dwelling utterly inside of God.
As you read, notice two very important things. Notice the heart-love of dwelling inside this Rock, this place of refuge, this House of God, this Father who fills us full. And notice the reaching out to include all others who belong to Jesus, all the congregation of His House.
My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up. But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; in fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. Psalm 5:6-7
Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart; he who does not backbite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor does he take up a reproach against his friend . . . He who does these things shall never be moved. Psalm 15:1-3 & 7
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11
I will declare Your name to My brethren; in the midst of the assembly I will praise You. You who fear the Lord, praise Him! All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him, and fear Him, all you offspring of Israel! Psalm 22:22-23
Lord, I have loved the habitation of Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells. – My foot stands in an even place; in the congregations I will bless the Lord.Psalm 26:8 & 12 (This first line was made into a song by a friend of mine, one of the most beautiful songs I have ever sung together with other precious brethren in the Tabernacle of David.)
One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord. Psalm 27:4-6
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling. There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn. The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Psalm 46:1-7
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth. Psalm 50:2
For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Psalm 61:3-4
How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. – For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:1-2 & 10-11
As I said, I have cut severely. So many of these are songs of the worship of the Feast of Tabernacles I have known and sung in great glory and anointing in the midst of God's House over many years. I have known such praise; I have lived inside of worship. Those experiences are all in the past for me right now. For a season, I counted that as a loss. But no more. The truth of Melchizedek has changed my whole perspective, the power of an endless life. All that I have ever known belongs to me now as fully and more so than it ever did.
For us who walk in God, in the secret place of the Most High, NOTHING is ever lost. Because we are finite, when God takes us from one season to the next, He is adding something else to our lives. Because He who is our life is infinite, at no point do we ever lose what He already gave us.
But of all the Psalms, the one that most expresses to us the Feast of Tabernacles is Moses' Psalm, Psalm 91. I would write it over and over, speak it over and over, placing all of it before us and meditating upon every word together before God. But here I will place only portions. As you read, you are there, inside of Tabernacles.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.”
. . . He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
. . . Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling . . . You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.”
I now understand more clearly a truth that I have said over and over. God intends to prove His Word in the midst of the greatest lie. God will shine forth through us as light in the midst of the greatest darkness, as Love in the midst of the greatest hate, as Joy in the midst of the greatest sorrow.
The fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles in the life of the church takes place against the backdrop of God's judgment upon the nations.
I know that there is a grace coming upon many right now, the grace of living as Jesus lived out from the Atonement completed. I know that this grace is upon you and this grace is upon me, the grace that “is come.”
Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. Isaiah 26:20
We walk in God; God walks in us. The Covenant.
