In the early hours of the morning the Lord spoke to me about Tabernacles. He said, “This is Tabernacles… “ The place I was in when the Lord said “this is Tabernacles”, It was heavy, it was thick, it was like honey. Tabernacles is not light, airy, or even flippant, it is thick. The pace in the place of tabernacles is slower. You can’t move however you want, you can’t do whatever you want. There’s no attitudes, nor agendas. It’s the dwelling of God and it is obvious who’s in charge. It’s not a place of control nor of anger and intimidation, rather it’s a place where God‘s in charge and everyone submits to His authority out of reverence and awe.
“And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”~ Leviticus 23:41-4 (KJV)
Tabernacles has authority, dominion, order, peace, righteousness, and ruler ship. It’s not a playground, it’s a place of God’s dwelling. The air is thick; The reverence is real; The self is not welcome; it’s where God dwells; holiness reigns; and authority rules. Everyone feels safe, secure, strong. This is tabernacles. As we prepare to enter the month of September we are drawing close to the dates of the feast of Tabernacles. The apostle John told us that the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us (John 1). Tabernacles is the third and final feast on the Hebrew calendar, it celebrates the harvest of oil, olive oil to be exact. It is a feast of God’s dwelling it is a reminder that God dwells within us, and it is an invitation to come into the dwelling place of God.
I sense that this September as we embark on the feast of Tabernacle‘s, we are going to find the presence of God getting thicker and thicker and the people becoming more and more secure knowing that God is in charge. He has not left us alone, he has not left us to our own opinions or our own ideas, He is inviting us to dwell in the shelter of the Most High and to abide in the presence of the Almighty. The fear of God is going to mark the next great awakening, and yes it will bring you to your knees but as soon as He places His hand upon you, you will know that He is God and He is good. Get ready my friends the Lord is leading us forward to Tabernacles.
