The Spiritual Fulfillment Of Tabernacles Is

Divine Love

To begin with, the spiritual bonding of the Body of Christ through God’s divine love is the New Testament fulfillment of the feast of Tabernacles.  Moreover, like the manifestation of tongues is the spiritual fulfillment of the feast of Pentecost, Divine Love is the spiritual realization of the feast of Tabernacles in the New Testament church.

When I see Jesus in  your eyes

The basis of Tabernacles is the revealing (or manifestation) of God’s love in and through the Elect.  God says through John,

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”

1 John 4:7,8

Spiritual love, in reality, is the pure love which existed in the Garden of Eden before the fall of Adam.  This is the same love that God wishes to restore to His people today.  As God remakes us into His image and likeness, our most prominent attribute will be love.

The unity of the Body of Christ comes not from men agreeing on doctrine, but from the shared spiritual experience of Divine Love.  Natural members of a physical body must listen to the head in order to work together in agreement.  Likewise, as we submit fully to Christ’s headship, his body will naturally come into agreement, too.

Knit together by Divine Love

God says,

“And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.”

1 Samuel 18:1

God gave supernatural love to Jonathan for David to protect him from his father.  Saul, a natural minded man, doesn’t understand Jonathan’s devotion to David saying,

“Then Saul’s anger was kindled against Jonathan, and he said unto him, Thou son of the perverse rebellious woman, do not I know that thou hast chosen the son of Jesse to thine own confusion, and unto the confusion of thy mother’s nakedness? For as long as the son of Jesse liveth upon the ground, thou shalt not be established, nor thy kingdom. Wherefore now send and fetch him unto me, for he shall surely die.”

1 Samuel 30, 31

Our natural minds cannot understand Divine Love

Moreover, to Saul’s reasoning, Jonathan’s actions make no sense.  Israel’s first king does not understand the self-sacrificial love that his son feels for David.  To the reasoned, natural minded Saul, heavenly love is incomprehensible, because it is not of this Earth.

Finally, we see this type of love perfectly described in 1 Corinthians,

“Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Now, the Tabernacle of God is with men

Summarizing, God reveals His nature, which is love, through His saints.  As God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, now God is in us finishing that great work.  With this in view, is any wonder the spiritual fulfillment of Tabernacles is God’s Divine Love?
