As we approach the 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles, I thought I would share an interesting blueprint with you that ties to the New Testament.
During each of the seven days of the Feast of Tabernacles, there was a water and wine offering poured out. The water symbolized the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit when this Feast is fulfilled, as well as the wine represented the outpouring of God’s wrath with the overthrow of “The Mother of all Harlots”(Rev. 17:5).
The wine also represents the “new wine” that is a fruitful harvest of the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God’s wrath is to turn us away from evil so we can bear a fruitful harvest, so the wine has a dual purpose.
We are living in the transition of the manifestation of the great outpourings of both water and wine. The “Mystery of Babylon” is not so much a mystery anymore, as truth is setting us all free from blindness and apathy as a church. God’s truth is allowing us to see how our misalignments and adopted man-made religious structures have created “tares” that have divided the body of Christ and granted access for the enemy to steal, kill, and destroy our identity, purpose, and authority in the earth.
God is “dropping His plumbline” because of His mercy; giving us the opportunity to SEE and HEAR truth clearly so we can “choose life” and separate ourselves from everything God reveals that we have knowingly or unknowingly aligned with unrighteousness, falsehoods, iniquity, and idolatry.
God is serious in this hour to warn us to “come out of her” as He spoke of in Revelation 18 because the iniquity of the “mystery of Babylon,” the “Harlot,” is about to be introduced to the wrath of God being poured out upon her to expose and shake her strangleholds.
” And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and les you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities” (Rev. 18:4,5).
Why now? Because it’s God divinely appointed time, and those great SIGNS are witnessed and fulfilled through the Feasts of the Lord.
2020 has been a miraculous SIGN for us all to witness of this transition taking place as thousands of Christians from all over the world have joined in unity of heart to honor God’s appointed times of Passover, Pentecost, and the Fall Feasts. I personally am blown away of how fast God has opened the hearts of His people to the significance of His Feasts…they are HIS HOLY DAYS that bear HIS SIGN TO THE WORLD THAT CHRIST IS OUR REDEEMER!
God’s mercy is calling out to the nation to turn from our wicked ways and get away and get out from under the manipulations of the “Harlot.” We are being “trumpeted” into action. Why? Because God wants to protect His people from the impending judgment that must come in order to bring redemption and restoration to the earth. And this process involves us partnering with the Lord. That is how He has always chosen to do things, and America was chosen to partner with God in His redemption purpose which we know in learning about our providential history.
The judgment ahead must proceed the great and amazing 7th day Sabbath “tabernacle” rest which will usher in the New Millenium reign when Christ rules over the nations. This judgment will continue to align the world back into the LORD’S righteous order so the land can prosper and the people can live in His Shalom Peace.
“I was watching and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom” (Dan. 7:21).
We must take off our religious doctrine that paints the picture of the world ending in doom and Christians leaving. This mindset doesn’t prepare our hearts and actions to be a part of His plan to bring restoration in the earth, which is why He encouraged us to pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10).
Recall, when it was the LORD’s time to manifest His Promise…..
“And SUDDENLY, a VOICE came from heaven, saying, ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matt. 3:17).
The Lord has a set time in which He will again trumpet suddenly, “These are My sons of God, in whom I am well pleased.”
Afterwards, God will release the full measure of His living “waters.” This is His “new wineskin” of His glory that the world will see and experience His miracles and healing outpouring through His kingship and the sonship of His remnant that are chosen to serve Him.
Recall that Christ was led into the wilderness to be tempted to by the devil right after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon Him. It will be no different in the hour we are upon with His “sons.” The remnant has learned obedience through the things they have suffered so that when the hour of outpouring of water and wine comes, the remnant will be able to stand strong in the midst of the enemy attempting to kill, steal, and destroy them. The battle will rage between the voice of the Lord (Lion of the Tribe of Judah), and the voice of the enemy (The dragon/beast). The remnant will NOT be moved, not snared by the enemies lies, for the truth is their ROCK, and their VOICE will open and shut heaven’s outpourings.
If you read the Gospel of John, there are a total of 8 miracle signs that were purposed to manifest God’s glory through Jesus (John 2:11). These miracles are a sign of what is to come in greater measure, for the Lord says we would do greater things because together in Christ, we can manifest Him to the nations!
There are seven days of the Feast of Tabernacles outpourings, and the 8th “set apart” for the “sacred assembly.” If you recall, the first miracle that Jesus did was at a wedding in Cana, in which He turned the water into wine. Tabernacles is all about the great celebration of the Bride (body of Christ) and the Groom (Christ) coming together as ONE, with an outpouring of His glory and a joyful celebration. The Millenium reign and it’s purpose is a great promise to celebrate even today.
The 8 MIRACLE SIGNS ARE:
- The water to wine at the wedding at Cana (John 2:1-11).
- The Nobleman’s son healed (John 4:46-54).
- The sick man at Bethesda healed (John 5: 1-13).
- The feeding of 5,000 (John 6:4-15).
- Walking on water (John 6:16-21).
- The blind man healed (John 9:1-7).
- Lazarus raised from the dead (John 11:1-44).
- The 153 fish caught in a net (John 21:3-11).
With expectancy then, we set our eyes upon the Lord as the King of kings who will return to dwell with His people and subdue the nations under His reign. We keep our lamps full as we honor these HOLY DAYS, because one day soon, Christ will return and tabernacle amongst us all.
I pray you experience God’s presence dwelling with you and those you are called to celebrate this 8th Day!
