The Tabernacle Movement: North America
America has been known throughout it’s history as a place where religious freedom reigns. We are proud of our heritage of great awakenings throughout our history which have swept across our country in waves of repentance and joy. Our country has a tradition of accepting a promoting new revelation which God uses to move His people forward towards the promised land of the glorious liberty of His sons.
Along with the steady march of progressive revelation there have been many movements that have run their course and spent themselves upon the rocks of tradition, legalism, and mediocrity. Not only have they camped in the wilderness of this world but they seek to prevent others from moving beyond where they have died.
However, God always has His seven thousand who still keep faith even when times seem evil. There is always a remnant who move forward and seek out green pastures and still waters. Even when the majority bleach their bones in the Wilderness of Sin there are still the Joshua’s and Caleb’s who prevail.
The Tabernacle movement will be another such “great awakening.” It has started as small embers plucked from the fire that resides within the Chariot of God and it will ignite a new generation of believers such as the world has not seen since the days of the first Pentecost. It will be the third and final step in the restoration of the church in this gentile age. It will be the final act in a play that shows the world the liberty of the sons of God and the power thereof. It will be what brings about the perfection of the church spoken of in the book of Ephesians.
God will raise up a people who will come in the spirit and power of Elijah. These are the fully realized Tabernacle Christians who have began to be one with God and who show forth the manifestation of that oneness , which is Divine Love. This love will be from God for it will be God. This will be the answer that so many have sought when they have yearned for a direct experience with God. No more will people say “the Bible says” but they will say “but I say unto you” what God is speaking today. Their voices will not contradict the scriptures but it will naturally dismantle the carefully constructed edifice of legalism that the church worships and serves. People will leave the established church in droves and these churches will resort to ever more outlandish and sensationalistic methods to keep their pews filled. However, while the true church is leaving they will be replaced by those who do not know God and do not wish to know God. The normative church will morph into part of the one world super church that is being formed to serve the antichrist while the true church becomes the body of Christ. It will be as if God is separating the light from the darkness as His people coalesce into His body fitly joined together in love.
The first step, the part that we can do, is to get the message out. The powers that be, great and small, do not want the message of Tabernacles to be shared with the people. They wish to marginalize what the Spirit is saying to the churches just as they have since the first century. We must use every means at our disposal to get the truth out to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. This means that we should seek to be on the forefront of new social media developments so that we may speak to the opinion makers of this generation. Technology is simply a tool to be used as the Holy Spirit leads us. It is a way to share the truth of our experience. We will give the Holy Spirit free reign in our lives to use any available avenue, many of which we will have never considered, to allow others to meet the God which we serve.
Secondly, we must tailor this message to reach the young people of our generation. This will necessitate encouraging young people, who have the Spirit of God working in them, to be sent out to speak among their contemporaries who are mostly outside of organized religion. In truth, once they catch the fire no one will be able to stop them from doing this for this love is so big it must be shared with the world.
The way that the church presents God is old, dusty, and outdated. They are like those who insist on worshiping in the high places while God has made it clear that His people are to worship at Jerusalem. It just makes sense to go where God is moving and to present the good news to people in a way that they can receive in this day and age. The truth of God is just as true and vital as it was in the first century but we must move into the final feast and let God speak through the Tabernacle experience to all those who hunger and thirst. Tabernacles is where He is now.
Thirdly, we must allow God to demonstrate His love to those He seeks to reach. Through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the move of Tabernacles God will lead and guide each one of us to show His Divine Love to the lost. This requires humility, teach-ability, and an inner moral compass to only do what God says to do and no more. We will continue to raise up a core leadership that knows the voice of God that are examples of agape towards one another and towards the lost. This move of God is primarily experiential. Only after people start to enter into the Final Feast will it be proper to stand up and say “this is that.”
Fourthly, we will not seek to engage the church nor will we be hostile to it even if, at some point, it turns hostile towards us. I am truly amazed at what those who call themselves Christians are capable of in the name of doctrine. Some, when you get them outside of their doctrinal box, become ravenous wolves that seek to rend and tear others without mercy. The way to handle a wolf is to simply stay away from its jaws and claws. We have no interest in the established church, we do not wish to engage with the established church, and we will go about our business in God outside of the established church. If the church seeks to engage us we will side step them. If the church seeks to persecute us we will simply melt away. If the church wishes to rail against us and make all manor of false accusations towards us we will remain dumb and answer them not a word. We must remember that when otherwise caring and loving Christians start to do that which is not of Christ we are dealing with demons that they are unwittingly allowing to manifest through them. Therefore, recognizing this fact, we must always keep in mind that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but we do war with spiritual principalities and wickedness in high places.
In conclusion, I am writing this vision large so that those who hear it may live dangerous. For those who love not their lives unto death that some might be saved. God is our captain and I am only one voice among many messengers. As our Father starts to move upon His people and they start to experience the manifestation of Divine Love we will come together as one because, in our hearts, it doesn’t make sense to do anything else. Ours will be a fellowship based upon what we have known in God and out of that will come a renewed and invigorated body of believers who will be equipped by the Holy Spirit for the work of the ministry. It will be a wonderful time to be a believer and we will see the day when the unity of the Spirit will finally bring about the unity of the faith.
