The Restoration of David's Tabernacle II
Restoration of David’s Tabernacle is a fact that was revealed to us many years ago by a lot of servants of God, however; it is necessary that we take the subject because the Word of the Lord is never-failing and the restoration of David’s Tabernacle is a sign of the return of the Lord, in the eschatological scenario of the Church, because after the gentile are being called, He will deal again with Israel.
ESV Acts 15:16-17 "'AFTER THIS I WILL RETURN, AND I WILL REBUILD THE TENT OF DAVID THAT HAS FALLEN; I WILL REBUILD ITS RUINS, AND I WILL RESTORE IT, 17 THAT THE REMNANT OF MANKIND MAY SEEK THE LORD, AND ALL THE GENTILES WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, SAYS THE LORD, WHO MAKES THESE THINGS…
The Return of the Shulammite
We have to be as the sons of Issachar; whom the Bible describes as people with discernment and knowledge of the times, but the most important one, is that they knew what they had to do. If we can understand the times we are living, and what we should do, then we could prepare for our return to the Celestial homeland, the place where we belong.
We can see in the Old Testament, the way God liberated the people of Israel from the slavery of Egypt and they were taken to the desert until they got to the promise land, called Canaan; however, many of them were left scattered in the desert because, even when they were liberated from Egypt, still desired in their hearts, what they had in that land of slavery; because they did not have a change in the way they thought. They had not left their slavery, spiritually speaking, but for us, it means leaving the world, but it is necessary for us to have a change in the ways we think and in our attitudes; otherwise, we will be affected and we will be taking the risk to be scatter in the path and we will not reach the blessings that God has for us.
Sleeping with the Enemy
Many of us heard the phrase “sleeping with the enemy” and we quickly associated it with a movie, and we think that in real life or biblically talking about this situation could hardly happen, but, the Word shows us the opposite.
Micah 7:5-7 ESV Put no trust in a neighbor; have no confidence in a friend; guard the doors of your mouth from her who lies in your arms; (6) for the son treats the father with contempt, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house (7) But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.
The Complement of Hearing
We understand faith comes by hearing, which provokes a series of changes in our lives, both in our actions and our way of speaking and thinking. Hearing accelerates faith, and as a consequence, the one who believes starts seeing. The Bible says what we have heard, seen, looked upon, and touched with our hands concerning the Verb of Life, this is what we proclaim (1 John 1:1-4); then the first thing we must do is hearing; however, it must not stop there, hearing must be complemented by seeing, yet in order to do this, it is necessary to be accompanied by other partners.
Isaiah 42:23 ESV Who among you will give ear to this, will attend and listen for the time to come?
The Scepter of the Noble (III)
The Lord Jesus Christ through His sacrifice at the Calvary’s Cross, He rescued us from our vane way of living and gave us new life in Him; therefore we are no longer what we were used to, but now we are holy nation, chosen people by God; we are kings and priest for His glory, but also God named us noble, so we must behave such as noble people.
We have seen un previous studies, that as part of this title that the Lord granted us, we were given a scepter which we must learn how to use it. Through the scepter, God gave us authority to unlock wells that were locked by humanism; and also describes multiplication.
DRA Numbers 17:5 Whomsoever of these I shall choose, his rod shall blossom: and I will make to cease from me the murmurings of the children of Israel, wherewith they murmur against you.
The Scepter of the Noble (II)
The Lord found us in a pitiful state and recued us to give us life, the Bible says in Romans 6, that we were baptized in His death to a new life, this means that while our earthily body is getting older, the inner men is getting renewed, because God has new things prepared for each of us, therefore what we were we are no more; because we have been washed with the blood of the Lamb. We were rescued from the dunghill to promote us as noble, so we must act as they do.
On tool the Lord gives us as noble is a scepter, which we must learn how to use. On the first part of today’s study we read in Numbers 21:18 to unlock the well using the scepter, reading the context we deduce it is the well of praising, that could be locked by soil, or humanism.
ESV Genesis 32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the deeds of steadfast love and all the faithfulness that you have shown to your servant, for with only my staff I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two camps.
The Scepter of the Noble (I)
We have studied that when the Lord reached us we were chosen among the vile and underestimated from the Word (1 Corinthians 1:26-29); we were not considered as noble or wise, however we do not have to remain in this stage because the Bible says that if we lack on wisdom we must ask for it with faith to the Lord and receive it (James 1:5); God already took us out from the dust and the dirt to sit us among nobles (1 Samuel 2:8). If the Lord took us out from sin so we couldn’t continue being sinners, because old things passed and all were made new in Him, our hope is to reach perfection as He is. We can’t continue being the same as we were before encountering the Lord, if we were sinners now we have to be saints because we were taken out from Egypt therefore we have to repel from our heart all evidence from this slavery place.
We have a noble title, spiritually speaking, that maybe has no importance to men, but for the celestials powers it is recognized, so we have to behave as nobles and not as a commoner. One of the tools, that as nobles, we have is the scepter so we can use it in our walk to the Celestial Place, but we have to know how to use it.
The Servants of the Ascension (II)
We know we are living the last times and as a guide that God left for us on this earth as a watch is called Israel, at telling us that Israel is the fig tree when its brand is yet tender, and put forth leaves, we will know that summer is nigh: (Matthew 24:32) that is why that as a church we must pay attention to the events in that part of the world.
There is been a big persecution against the Israelites around the world, many Jews had being murdered in many cities, their synagogues have being victims of vandalism, just like happen before the Second World War in Germany, when the persecution against the Jews started which ended with the holocaust where died more than 6 million of Jews. Notwithstanding the persecution of this times is different, because this is a persecution around the world, because now the humanity has turn their back against the people of Israel; accusing them of genocide against the people of Palestine. Spain is pressing Israel and they will not sell them weapons anymore, England will also stop selling weapons to them if they attack Gaza again and United States is in favor to not help them anymore. Israel is staying alone and that is what is known as the Jacob´s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7). We must pray for Jerusalem and for Israel because God chose them and His people; we must not raise our voice against them, because God said that He would not reject them.
The Favorable Year
In chapter 61 of the Book of Isaiah which speaks of this theme, as the Agreeable year or the Favorable year; and also it was one of the firsts Proclaims of our church, and based in the favorable year were the past seventeen proclaims done by us, conducted by the Holy Spirit. The first proclaim was “The Favorable Year of the Lord” but, it contains all the rest which have taken place. This favorable, or agreeable year has been ongoing for two thousand years, and when the Lord Jesus Christ Himself stood up in the Synagogue and proclaimed the Word in this chapter, and where it says: the Favorable Year or the Lord, but not mentioning what it says about the year of vengeance, and then afterwards He said, that such scripture was fulfilled at that moment. However, let’s analyze what has happened with humanity during these 2,000 years ever since the Lord Jesus made this proclaim? Let’s look to what the Bible says to that respect.
Luke 4:18 NASB “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED…
In which House do you live?
When we build a home, the first questions that the Lord asks us are: Who taught you to lead a family? It could be that we received the teachings from our parents, or our spouse´s parents, or our friends. It frequent that we start this little enterprise called family and we do not have all the information that it requires, for instance; we do not know the likes and preferences of our spouse, and among this are things that bother one to another, realizing that things are not like we thought they were, and everything because there were not a previous teaching.
The first words mentioned in the Book of Genesis are “…In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth…” in Hebrew it starts in the same way, and the first letter of the first word means Bayith or Beth (house) this teaches us the genetic reflected in the book of Genesis, was the idea in which God manifested His whish of having a house where dwell with us here on earth, in such way that the meaning of family and house is not new, it is a meaning that comes from the Olam (the eternal).
We all have a house where to live in, and what God whish is that we analyze what kind of house do we have, taking the Bible as basis, where there are good and bad houses, for instance; one of the good houses is Bethel (house of God), Bethany (house of rest), Bethlehem (house of the bread), notwithstanding, it is necessary to know that there were also houses that there were not good. Let´s see some examples of them.
