God has His own Time Frame;
it’s called the Feast of the Tabernacle of the Lord.
Like most of you reading this I have been in prayer and doing a lot of thinking about the condition we now find the world in. There has been a lot of really hard times in the past but the more I prayed and thought about it I begin to see a pattern in God’s economy in relationship with His Prophetic Word mainly the Feast of Tabernacle of the Lord, which is God’s perfect time table. What I am about to share with you is what I believe I’ve been shown and you may or may not agree with what I am about to write. This will also not be a complete study on the subject but I hope enough to get you into the Word.
The first thing I began to notice is that every time God brings about a major spiritual move something very important happens in connection with the Feast of Tabernacle of the Lord, we for the most part don’t see it until after the fact.
The second thing I noticed is that God always begins His move having something to do with Israel and the Jewish people. You see Israel is His time piece. Everything that God does and everything that the Devil does are always directed first at Israel.
The third thing is there are major changes in leadership in important places. What brought me to this one was Josh. 1:2 Moses my servant is dead, now go up and posses the land. It struck me that before God could finally give this land to the Jews, Moses had to die before God would go to the next step in His Master Plan, because God said NOW go up and posses the land. Then we read in Isa. 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple
I am going to just skip over this because I don’t believe you want to read a book.
I will begin with 1912-1917 we had World War I, which caused many changes of leadership. In the Church we see the 1st Assembly of God, and the classical Pentecostal formed. And in Israel we had the Belflour Declaration; the British took control of the Old City of Jerusalem, for the first time in 2500 years Jews were allowed to return to their homeland.
I couldn’t find another time frame when all three areas were working together until 1947-48. Jews were running out of Europe running scared and in fear of their lives knowing that millions of them had been murdered in the Holocaust. England was in control of the Holy Land and to appease the Arabs they passed a law called the White Paper which in effect stopped Jews from entering the Holy Land for reasons of demographics. This caused immediate war to break out between the Jews and the Arabs in the Holy Land. On May 15th 1948 Israel became a Nation and we in the Church witnessed the budding of the fig tree.
In 1948 in the Church the three most prominent Church leaders in the US died. Dr. Charles Price died at the age of 60, he laid hands on a man named Damos Shakaron (not spelled correct) and prophesized he would begin a great movement in the Body of Christ, (Full Gospel Businessmen). Smith Wigglesworth died at the age of 80 he laid hands on a man called David Duplishe (for sure not spelled right) and prophesized how he would be used in the Assemblies of God. And Amie Temple McPherson died at the age of 56, she was so important in California that it was impossible for a Governor to be elected without her endorsement.
These three were replaced as a change of leadership in the Church by
Billy Graham (Fundamental)
William Branham (Pentecostal) Out of his meetings came over 200 Evangelist, like Oral Roberts and many others.
Then there was the Hathon Brothers out of Canada who began preaching a strange Gospel saying you didn’t have to tarry to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit you could have it for the asking and they started what we now call the Charismatic Movement.
The next time I could find all three happening again was in 1967. Israel and the Arab World went into war, a war we now know as the 6 Day War. But here I found something very exciting happened in the Feast of Tabernacle of the Lord. At the end of the 6-Day War Israel air lifted a Rabbi to the top of Mount Sinai to blow the Shofar, the Feast of the Tabernacle of the Lord begins with the blowing of the Shofar. To understand this better we need to recognize what happened when Yeshua was walking on earth in the flesh. Or more to the point His death, burial and resurrection called the first advent.
Jesus died on Passover,
He was buried on the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
He rose on the Feast of First Fruits.
Act 2:1 we find the Feast of Pentecost
The Church has been waiting for the second advent to occur, and that will be the last three of the seven Feasts, which are:
Rosh Ha Shana – blowing of the Shofar.
Day of Atonement – Yom Kippur
Feast of Tabernacle – Sukkoth
We witnessed the blowing of the Shofar on Mt. Sinai in 1967, possibly not recognizing that the second advent had started and the count down for the last days was just ahead of us.
In the Church we saw many things happen in 1967, the most significant was it was the year that all the teaching ministries in the Church began. Before that time only Evangelists and Preachers were invited to churches but suddenly people like Prince, Copeland and Munford just to mention a few and what was happening in the Church. It was also the year William Brandon died and Katherine Kuman became known in the Church.
At the end of that 6 Day War we saw IDF soldiers marching in Tel-Aviv holding their guns above their heads saying by our right-hand we beat the whole Arab world. Sounding a lot like Nebuchadnezzar, not giving God credit, and believing they done this all on their own.
Six years later on 1973 God made it clear to me and many others that the second advent was in fact upon us. The number “6” is the number that God deals with man, man was created on the 6th day, and He also created the earth in 6 days. And we know the man who will be known as the anti-Christ will have the mark of 666.
On the next Feast in the Feast of the Tabernacle of the Lord was Yom Kippur, and 6 years later on that Feast Israel went back into war. This time they nearly lost the war and nearly everyone in Israel lost someone in that war. Many in the world was watching the corruption in Washington “Water Gate” for America was having its own Yom Kippur and days of Atonement while little Israel was being faced with a terrible war.
As we now know Israel survived and won the war fighting odds of over 200 to one. This time however we did not see IDF soldiers marching and claiming the victory, instead all you could hear was Baruch Ha-Shem (blessed be His name).
In the Church in 73 the Charismatic Movement was getting into deep trouble, and out of over 200 Evangelist that came out of the Brandon meetings nearly all faded away. God began to cleanse for many were operating under Kingdom anointing without a Priestly anointing for purity and power without purity always spells disaster. To say it another way men were sitting on pedestals with over inflated personalities, not that much has changed in that respect.
Jews pray on Sukkoth this prayer. “To hope that the all merciful One will raise up for us the fallen Tabernacle of David.” Sukkat David Ha NoFalet.
There is only one Feast left in the Second Advent and that Feast in Sukkoth; it is the time of the ingathering and prayer for the coming Messiah. The first day of Sukkoth this year is on the 14th of this month and it last for 8 days.
Before some of you jump on me, I am not saying there will be a rapture on this Sukkoth but I am saying according to my studies on this or some future Sukkoth God will speak very loudly to us all.
With the world’s economy failing and anti-Semitism spreading like a wild-fire and the Jews are once again being blamed for all the world’s ills it will not be long before Jews will be running for their lives once again. Daily I tell myself we should be much more prepared, and I pray we use the days ahead given us to do just that.
As I’ve said so many times, I thank God for every day He gives us to prepare, the one thing we need more than any other is a larger boat. But there are other items needed as well. Connie and I will be traveling again to Turkey and elsewhere on the 16th “God Willing” and we covert your prayers over us for protection. We also ask you to pray over your part in this Ministry for so much is needed.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it. Gen. 12:3
