Thy Throne, O , Is Forever and Ever
Let Light and Truth Be Your Tabernacles (Psalm 43:3)

The Feast of Tabernacles is to be celebrated on the fifteenth day of the seventh (solar) month for seven days unto in the place which He shall choose. On the first day shall be a Holy Convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. On the eighth day shall be a Holy Convocation unto you; it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein. It shall be a statute forever in your generations (Deuteronomy 16:16; Leviticus 23:34-36, 41).

At this celebration we also are to dwell in booths, a temporary dwelling for seven days. All that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths; that we may recall how made our forefathers—the children of Israel—to dwell in booths as He demonstrated His sovereign power and miraculous might in delivering them out of the land of Egypt (Leviticus 23:42-43).

Moreover, as we celebrate this occasion, keep in mind that has used similitudes by the ministry of the prophets, that He will yet again make Israel to dwell in tabernacles as in the days of the solemn feast: for all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths (Hosea 12:9-10; Nehemiah 8:17).

Now with that said, understand that a tabernacle from its Hebrew etymological origins is also a “lair.” A lair is a private place in which a person seeks concealment from the outside world. Therefore, as you plan to gather at this year’s solemn assembly, know that is come teaching you how to build a permanent dwelling in the tabernacle of your mind that is at one with His “Divine” Mind; concealed from the outside world where perfect peace resides, even in perilous times (Isaiah 26:3).

So as we near the end of our wilderness journey here in America, remember perilous times, as told by , shall surely come. You will be subjected to corporal, cultural, and cerebral genocide. You will flee from natural disasters such as earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, and drought; and you will be pushed to the brink of extinction by paucity, poverty, and pestilence; while the servants of perversion quietly steal away more and more of your constitutional freedoms and human rights resulting in the mass captivity and detention of dark-skinned people around the globe (Joel 3:1; 2 Timothy 3:1).

Indeed it is after these days that whosoever shall call on the name shall be delivered, whether Hebrew or Gentile. Primarily, the remnant of those that are left of all nations shall come up to worship the King, the Lord, , of Hosts and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles (Joel 2:32; Zechariah 14:16).

But until that time keep the feast and holy convocation allowing your mind and spirit to reside under the protection of goodly trees, as you let light and truth be your tabernacles (Leviticus 23:40; Psalm 43:3).
