The Tabernacle of David

God is restoring the true pattern of worship

“In that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old.” (Amos 9:11)

Over the past 2,000 years, the world has invaded our lifestyles and softened the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. For the most part, it has turned the church made of burning flames into buildings of slumbering, sleeping saints. Jesus spoke of our day in the parable of the “wise virgins.”

“While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.” (Matt. 25:5)

God has promised in His Word to bring us back to His paths in the last days. The pattern of the Tabernacle is now being manifest and made known to the people of God. It illustrates the true pattern of worship, reverence and intimacy God designed – and has always intended – for His people. It is a plan for royal priests and kings whom God is calling, and who are preparing themselves in these last days. This royal calling is found in the pattern of the Tabernacle, in the original Tabernacle of Moses and the subsequent Tabernacle of David. God has promised that the Tabernacle of David would be rebuilt as it was in the days of old. This is one of the paths He promised. It is a path to “bridal intimacy.”

Why the Tabernacle of David?

Because it is part of God’s pattern for worship — and God promised that it would be rebuilt!

In 2010, the Lord revealed to me that the tabernacle of David will rest in the heart of the tabernacle of Moses. It will be a merger of the two tabernacles to illustrate the complete and original pattern of worship created for His glory. David’s tabernacle illustrates the intimacy and open pathway to the Kingdom of God through Jesus. The Tabernacle of Moses, with its sacred articles of furniture and worship, demonstrate God’s redemptive covenant with His creation. Each element is an object lesson of our relationship with Almighty God. The Brazen Alter is the place of the cross and repentance; the Brazen laver is where the continual washing of the water of God’s Word is illustrated. The priests washed daily in the water of the laver. We are to wash daily in the Water of the Word which feeds our spirit and cleanses our hearts.

As you walk through the first curtain, you see the three important pieces of furniture: the Golden Lampstand, the Table of Shewbread and the Alter of Incense. The golden lamps represent the Seven Spirits of God. “…and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God.” (Rev. 4:5) The lamps, symbolically lit by the oil of the Holy Spirit, burned day and night, never to go out. We, too, are to have our spirits burning like fire day and night.

The Table of Shewbread is a picture of the Son of God, the One who is the Bread of Life. It is the place of fresh manna. The bread is soaked in olive oil which speaks of our being filled with the oil of the Holy Spirit. The Alter of Incense represents perfect prayer and intercession. Jesus gave His life and offered Himself up as our Royal Priest. He became the perfect sacrifice, the perfect intercessory incense offered to God.

God has established His Kingdom and it has never changed! He is bringing His bride into the true pattern of adoration and worship again. We are standing in a time of harvest revelation and God is fulfilling His spoken Word.

“Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord Almighty.” (Zechariah 4:6)

“In that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old.” (Amos 9:11)

God is bringing a fresh new look at His majesty and holiness. The Old and New Testament are being reunited in the person of the BRIDE! This is the eternal realm of the Third Day when God is reviving His “called out ones” for the “wedding of the Lamb.” The half has not yet been told.

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.

God is leading us into the Promised Land again, but this land is His Bridal Chamber. It is a place of victory, fruitfulness, peace, purity and supernatural intimacy. There is no doctrine that can stand in this place, only oneness in the Spirit. There is only true intimacy, only the pattern He gave us from the beginning, only true intimacy with our God.

We are entering into the Most Holy Place of the Tabernacle, the place of the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark represents the Throne of God in the earth. The Ark represents the glory of God revealed in divine order and worship. The Ark represents the “fullness of the Godhead bodily revealed in the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Colossians 1:19; 2:9)

This Ark of God, with the Mercy Seat captured between the two wing-stretched Cherubim, is a picture of God’s grace, His perfect love and His eternal protection.

“For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” (Psalm 91:11,12)

“The God of eternity became flesh and tabernacle among us.” (John 1:14)

This Mercy Seat, this single place of rest in the “Holy of Holies” represents the “secret place” of the Most High. It represents the only place we can find true rest – true peace and joy! It is our rest in Him!

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” (Psalm 91:1)

God is restoring the Tabernacle of David. He is restoring His priesthood, His Kingship and His Eternal rule through His church – His “called out ones.” He is restoring the joy, the singing of psalms, the shouting, the dancing – the fullness of worship. As priests in the kingdom of God we can enter the Holy Place and have intimacy, rest and perfect peace and joy. God is preparing His loved ones for the harvest.

Our God, our Creator is restoring true intimacy with His beloved creation, His bride!

A path has been prepared to His intimacy

The Bridal Path

 

Fulfilling His Bridal Call

Isaiah 49:18 — “Lift up your eyes, look around and see; All these gather together and come to you. As I live, says the Lord, You shall surely clothe yourselves with them all as an ornament, And bind them on you as a bride does.”

Isaiah 62:5 — “For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.”

Revelation 19:7,9 – “For the Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready. Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb.”

Isaiah 62:4,5 – “Never again will you be called ‘The Forsaken City’ or ‘The Desolate Land.’ Your new name will be ‘The City of God’s Delight’ and ‘The Bride of God,’ for the LORD delights in you and will claim you as his bride.” (NLT)

Hosea 2:19-23 -“And I will betroth you to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and justice, in steadfast love, and in mercy. “

“I will even betroth you to Me in stability and in faithfulness, and you shall know (recognize, be acquainted with, appreciate, give heed to, and cherish) the Lord.”

“And in that day I will respond, says the Lord; I will respond to the heavens [which ask for rain to pour on the earth], and they shall respond to the earth [which begs for the rain it needs],”

“And the earth shall respond to the grain and the wine and the oil [which beseech it to bring them forth], and these shall respond to Jezreel [restored Israel, who prays for a supply of them].”

“And I will sow her for Myself anew in the land, and I will have love, pity, and mercy for her who had not obtained love, pity, and mercy; and I will say to those who were not My people, You are My people, and they shall say, You are my God!”

Hosea 3:5 – “Afterward shall the children of Israel return and seek the Lord their God, [inquiring of and requiring Him] and [from the line of] David, their King [of kings]; and they shall come in [anxious] fear to the Lord and to His goodness and His good things in the latter days.”
