Hi.....this is something pertaining to Tabernacles the Lord gave me, that I wrote for my FB notes a few months back. I'm adding it here for obvious reasons. Blessings.....
Greetings.....this is a partial writing on revelation pertaining to the spiritual aspects of the Feast of Tabernacles. For clarity, please read "What About New Age?" note, before reading this.
He's making us a feast of FAT things. Fat things = those that have not allowed Him to circumcise their hearts by the processing of the work that is inherent in Passover and Pentecost. This is why the fat was an offering only for God the Father, and why we were told not to eat the fat of an animal in dietary laws (aside from making you sick).
Fat is above what is needed; as oil that has congealed, not flowing, LAID UP. It's not flowing because they have refused to go through the fire. Father allows us to receive the laid up riches in the others, as quickened revelation, if we submit to the fire. This is why the one who had one talent and did nothing with it but laid it up, his talent was given to the one who profited.Isaiah 25:6 And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.
Psalm 63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: 6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
This "fat" is representative of the wisdom of the Spirit which is Christ, that is hidden in the darkness of the uncircumcised of heart. This "fat" cannot be a light without the fire of the Holy Ghost consuming it. Uncircumcised ones, meaning those that have the wheat and the tares together still, that must still go thru the cleansing fire of the Holy Ghost.
Interestingly, the word for fatness in Psalm 63 above, literally means, "FAT ASHES, of blessing, of fertility", and comes from another root word meaning, "to anoint, to make fat, to prosper, to fatten oneself (of Jehovah's sword)". He gives us beauty (Christ's wisdom and nature) for ashes, fattens us with the sword, the Word of God, prospering our souls.Mark 9:1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power. 2 And AFTER SIX DAYS Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an HIGH MOUNTAIN APART by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 3 And his raiment became shining , exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
Mark 9:36 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms , he said unto them, 37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
Psalm 66:10 For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. 11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins. 12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place. 13 I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows, 14 Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken , when I was in trouble. 15 I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
In the HARVEST, He will send His angels and they will GATHER (Tabernacles is called the Feast of Ingathering) up out of His Kingdom all things which offend and do iniquity, the tares which are then cast into the fire, Matt. 13. Fat is unappealing to look at, and does not appeal to the lust of the eyes, so many will not humble themselves to receive "meat" from the hand of the Lord from that which they consider to be "unclean".
The sheet that Peter saw had to be raised three times, the feast of Tabernacles is the third of the three main feasts. These unclean carnal beastly natures are being cleansed for us in this hour, that we eat the life of the Spirit hidden in the darkness of the flesh.
Without THIS FIRE being the one to do it, trying to consume this fat is as offering up strange fire, which is what you see happening to those that think it's ok to consume other things outside the Word, APART FROM THE LEADING OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
With the Spirit leading, no harm can come, for the tares are burned/consumed in the fire, REFINED in the refiner's fire, leaving the revelation which is hidden in the people, revealed by cleansing, distilled like wine. One of the best times of fellowship I have ever had, was with a Mormon, someone I would have never thought I could receive anything from.
But because the Lord's fire was present to consume the offering, what was of Christ's wisdom ascended as the smoke (cloud) of the offering, while the rest was dross. For our ashes He gives us beauty, the beauty of the only begotten Son. It's the same as refining gold, where the dross (doctrines without life) is consumed, but the gold (higher nature of God revealed, ie. revelations of the Word that IS life and Spirit) is retained.John 7:1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2 Now the Jews' FEAST OF TABERNACLES was at hand. 3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest . 4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. 5 For neither did his brethren believe in him. 6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready. 7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. 8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come. 9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee. 10 But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were IN SECRET.
Isa 45:3 -And I will give thee the TREASURES OF DARKNESS, and HIDDEN RICHES OF SECRET PLACES, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
As I said, these treasures of darkness and hidden riches are none other than the wealth of the WICKED laid up (RESERVED IN HEAVEN/Christ IN them) for the just (those of the priesthood that are pressing in to celebrate this feast). Carnally minded man thought that this scripture dealt with physical riches (and that will follow), but the TRUE RICHES are things that be of Christ and the Father.
Starting with the above, the feast He went to IN SECRET in this passage, was literally the feast of Tabernacles.....and so too does He do this thing in secret with us spiritually, because it is unobservable, unlike Passover and Pentecost, and is typified by the fact the High Priest went in ALONE into the Holy of Holies.Job 12:22 He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.
1Ki 8:12 Then spake Solomon, The LORD said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
God hid Himself in the last place man would ever think to look......IN MAN.Da 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
2Sa 22:12 And he MADE DARKNESS PAVILLIONS ROUND ABOUT HIM, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies.
The interesting thing about the word pavillions there, is that it is the same word translated booth or tabernacle elsewhere. He is saying He dwells in the darkness of the tabernacles. Know ye not ye are the temple of the living God?Psalm 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: IF I MAKE MY BED IN HELL, BEHOLD, THOU ARE THERE.
Hell is separation from God, and there are many walking around that are in "hell" in this hour, and there is no greater darkness than that, yet HE is there. The lake of fire is that which the things that have us bound is cast into. As we are becoming one with Him who is a consuming fire, and He causes the "fat" to flow and give off light (understanding/revelation of Christ), we become that lake of fire that is used to bring the treasures hidden in the darkness, to light. Psalm 139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. 12 YEA, THE DARKNESS HIDETH NOT FROM THEE; BUT THE NIGHT SHINETH AS THE DAY: THE DARKNESS AND THE LIGHT ARE BOTH ALIKE TO THEE.
The reason they are alike is because He has hidden treasures in the darkness, hidden things of Christ, the true light. This is why the 7th day in Genesis was light. It wasn't because there was no darkness, but rather that the darkness had been swallowed up or covered over of light.
The ark of the covenant bears this witness, with the tablets of the law that were covered over by the mercy seat. The law ministered condemnation which ministered death to the hearer (the flesh), because of sin.
If you put a lid on a box, it's immediately DARK in there, and the ark was essentially a wooden box overlaid within and without with gold. The ark of the covenant also represents man as an overcomer with two anointings, one within (inner court) and one without (outer court), and a crown (mercy seat). To he that overcometh, will I give a CROWN of life. He sees those things that are not, as though they were.
This whole process those that ARE pressing in to partake of the Feast of Tabernacles, ties in with the bones Ezekiel saw.
Bones without meat on them = first veil of our flesh laid down. (earth shaken)
DRY bones=those that have laid down the Christ veil of His flesh, because Spirit is water/life of them. (heaven shaken).
This is why He has "dried up" many in this hour, just as He dried up the river for Elijah to make him move on. We have to lay down all the giftings, titles, ministries, ect. at His feet, to receive more. We must become those DRY bones, before He will clothe us with His glory. He took on the likeness of sinful flesh, and was made of no reputation, and those that are pressing into for the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus, are expected to do the same. The servant is not greater than the master.
This is why He goes into unto this feast IN SECRET, because it begins as a sovereign work one on one with Him. Don't expect anyone to understand, unless they are going through it themselves. It looks bad, not pleasant to the lust of the eyes at all. It makes you look like a reprobate, having been called out of the churches, laying everything down. It also doesn't feel good to the lust of the flesh to be singled out as "backslidden", "reprobate", ect., to be made of no reputation. But the difference between the 60 fold and the 100 fold is 40 years on the backside of the desert, being led by Him and Him alone.
So what happens after we have been stripped of our flesh and laid down His flesh to become as dry bones? This is where He makes "fat" our bones. He puts the glorified word/flesh back on them, ie. that which has been thru the fire. Bread must be both pierced and baked to be fit to feed the nations.
They SHALL PICK UP serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing it will not hurt them.
When God told Moses to CAST DOWN His rod of authority = veil of Christ's flesh as it pertains to coming outside the camp and dying, ie. laying down of all, it then took on the IMAGE OF SINFUL FLESH, but it CONSUMED the serpent natures of the uncircumcised Egyptians.
This principle was also illustrated by God telling Joseph to take the Christ child and hide Him in Egypt (a type of the image of sinful flesh), that He might grow and mature in the things of His Father. He also told them to keep Him there until Herod was dead. Herod is a type of the carnal mind. "Herod" is seeking to kill all sons that are 2 years (2 days/2000 years) and under (Pentecost and Passover realms) right now, which is why we must obey the Father and get out of Bethlehem.
Bethlehem comes from two Hebrew words, Beyth and lechem, ie. house and bread. More on this in another note, but staying in the house of bread/letter, and not moving as the Spirit says move in this hour, is allowing Herod, the carnal mind in type, to rule and we must take on the mind of Christ and allow Him to finish the work in us.Matthew 2: 12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. 13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word : for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. 14 When he arose , he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: 15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son. 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
And then the Lord God told Him to pick the rod of authority back up, ie. after suffering with Him, we are glorified with Him = MIRACLES to set ALL creation free. He did His first miracle at Cana, which runs into word used in Psalms (I believe it was) that means "possessor of heaven and earth" ie. the ALmighty God, the Father God that is in our new heaven/glorified Christ AND our new earth/glorified body. This is why it says, God was IN Christ reconciling all men unto Himself.
This rod of Moses, ties in with the PICKING UP (catching up) of the TWELVE BASKETS OF FRAGMENTS = 12 tribes of humanity He "fragmented" Himself in, after the 5 (grace ministered thru ministry of 5 fold) fishes and 2 loaves (witness of Son and Spirit together = inner court) dispensation has ENDED. It is time for the Father to come on the scene, and FULFILL the promise with HIMSELF. Blessings....
