TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
As you tabernacle with Me, I will extend your tent pegs. The more of Me you have, the more space I take, and the more I will need to extend your tent pegs. Press into Me and see how I will expand your home front.
Seasons, or as the Jews call them “moedims,” are prophetic appointed times. Seasons are a big deal to God.
There are three specific seasons where God Almighty says, “Stop what you’re doing. Seek My face during this special time and I’ll speak to you. We can have intimacy, you and I.”
In the Bible, those seasons are marked by a feast and there are three feasts where God said He is most willing to be found–Passover, Pentecost and the Feast of Tabernacles. I really like the Feast of Tabernacles.
The Feast of Tabernacles is all about the manifest presence of God in your life. It is at the end of the Hebrew year–October–during the fruit harvest. The Feast of Tabernacles is where God says, “I’m here. I can’t be denied, I can’t be ignored.”
If you wake up in the morning and are not aware of God’s presence, you need a harvest. If you live your whole life and you just can’t think God thoughts because you’re so messed up, you need a harvest. If you want to live a life where Jesus is everywhere you go, you need a harvest.
See, if you tabernacle with the Lord, when you think about your past and go to those memories and painful places, because you’re staking ground in Him, you can meet Jesus in those places. Where you couldn’t before, you can now.
If you need that–to tabernacle or live in Him because He’s the only boat that floats–you need a harvest. Go after it because these feasts are not just for the Jews. They are for Kingdom people because they’re not Jewish feasts. They are Kingdom feasts. You and I can get in on the action.
Want a harvest of goodness you can present to the King of Kings? Tabernacle with Him. Go after it. His manifest presence is the reward.
‘”Indeed, your threshing will last for you until grape gathering, and grape gathering will last until sowing time You will thus eat your food to the full and live securely in your land.” – Leviticus 26:5
