Beloved, do you realize that My Son Jesus was born under a tabernacle? He was born during the Feast of the Tabernacles which celebrates how I was among My people in the wilderness after I brought them out of the land of Egypt from slavery. It was under this tabernacle that My presence descended upon the earth to be among the people once again to bring freedom to the captives and to give them a place to rest their heads. Beloved, My presence was always with My people, even as they wondered in the desert, when they did not see it. I have always kept My covenant promise to My people to never leave them nor forsake them from before the Fall and every covenant thereafter.
42 You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All who are native Israelites shall dwell in booths, 43 that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.’ - Leviticus 23:42-43 - NKJV
As you celebrate this feast, remember how I provided for My people and how I kept them in the wilderness. Even as they wondered in the wilderness I provided for everything they needed. I provided more than enough for them to survive. I was their Covering. Even when they were displaced, not having a country of their own, wondering if they will ever belong anywhere, I never left them.
He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. - Psalm 91:4 - NKJV
39 ‘Also on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the Lord for seven days; on the first day there shall be a sabbath-rest, and on the eighth day a sabbath-rest. 40 And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of beautiful trees, branches of palm trees, the boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days. 41 You shall keep it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations. You shall celebrate it in the seventh month. - Leviticus 23:34-41 - NKJV
And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. - Exodus 13:21 - NKJV
For the cloud of the Lord was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. - Exodus 40:38 - NKJV
And I have led you forty years in the wilderness. Your clothes have not worn out on you, and your sandals have not worn out on your feet. - Deuteronomy 29:5 - NKJV
“So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you. - Exodus 23:25 - NKJV
Just as you celebrate these feasts in remembrance of My goodness and My faithfulness, so you are to assemble together and to take Holy Communion to celebrate and to remember My ultimate act of goodness through My Son, Jesus, who made the Way for you to be adopted back into My Family, as My sons and daughters. My eyes are on you, beloved. The passion of My love shall never die for I love you with an everlasting love! Why would you ever believe or think that I have forgotten you? I never forget those who are Mine. I Am your Covering and your Safe Refuge, dearest one.
2 In that day the Branch of the Lord shall be beautiful and glorious; And the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and appealing. For those of Israel who have escaped. 3 And it shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy—everyone who is recorded among the living in Jerusalem. 4 When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning, 5 then the Lord will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering. 6 And there will be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and rain. - Isaiah 4:2-6 - NKJV
I have brought to you My presence on earth, first through the cloud and the pillar of fire and then, through My Word made flesh to walk among you. Through My Son as the Living Sacrifice, I have brought to you the ultimate offering to My tabernacle for the washing away of sin, for all time - the offering I provided as an offering made by the fire of My love - for the final reconciliation of mankind to Myself.
For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. - Leviticus 23:36 - NKJV
And after I resurrected My Son Jesus, I sent My Holy Spirit to be with you until the end of the age. I Am always with you, dearest one. I Am Immanuel - the God who is with you.
“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” - Matthew 1:23 - NKJV
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. - Matthew 28:19-20 - NKJV
15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. - John 14:15-18 - NKJV
Beloved, you are the temple of the Living God. You are My tabernacle - wherever you go My glory goes with you. You are not a nomad wondering aimlessly without direction or purpose in the wilderness, you are a living, moving and breathing tabernacle covered and carried by My glory!
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? - 1 Corinthians 6:19 - NKJV
21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” - John 4:21, 23-24 - NKJV
It is time for My remnant, My sons and daughters to go outside and beyond the four walls of the church to the four corners of the earth, for each of you are living tabernacles - temples of the Living God - places of My presence, carriers of My Kingdom, covered by the light of My glory.
