Another Tabernacles Read through

Some months ago this Facebook group waded through George H Warnock's booklet
The Feast of Tabernacles.

I think it would be great for the group to read and fellowship around Daniel Yordy's Book on Tabernacles, also available on Amazon as book or download.

This is NOT being run as a series here currently but in this post I whet your appetite to read from Daniel's site, to purchase his book or download from Amazon in the completed form, or to share with us  in the Facebook group.

The Introduction

Feast of Tabernacles by Daniel Yordy
Available as a fully published version also on Amazon
This book is the heart of what I teach, and being able, finally, to write it, was one of the great joys of my life. I wrote these letters through 2014. Part of that joy was to find the wondrous word of Christ our only life in every line of the Old Testament concerning the journey of Israel and the great Feasts of the Lord. Although the title is of the third feast, yet all the elements of the other feasts must find their place first, along with Israel's journey and the lives of three extraordinary men: Moses, David, and Paul.

Have you ever wondered, as I have, what Jesus meant in John 14 when He said, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him”?

This verse caught my heart years ago, and I have believed for many years that God will make it real to me. But here is my problem. I am not interested in understanding what Jesus meant only, but rather, I desire to live sealed in the experience of it now and forever.

I am finished living a life without the knowledge of the Father filling me full with all of Himself. I must know God in Person inside of me.

How, then, does that happen for us?

Do we come to know this experience of the Father filling us full by some achievement of our own? Or do we know it by faith?

Do we “prove” to God how much we love Him so that, some day, He will deign to live in us? Or does He live in us now, waiting for us to know Him by faith alone?

God has not left us alone. He has given us a map of the journey before us. That map is the journey of Israel, the journey of the Ark of the Covenant and the seven great feasts of Israel’s religious year, culminating in the Feast of Tabernacles.

I am finished living a life without the knowledge of the Father filling me full with all of Himself. I must know God in Person inside of me.

In seeking Christ by the anointing of the Holy Spirit inside these feasts, using the journey of Israel as our map, we are well able to enter into all the exprience of God through us.

However, what are we looking for?

What do you want?

Many define God as external power to cause things to change that are “not right.” But is that really what being filled with all of God is?

There is only one picture of God given to the entire universe, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ: He who has seen Me has seen the Father.

And there is only one way we can know Him: We shall be like Him for we shall see Him as He is.

It is this Man, then, who said, “I am meek and lowly of heart.”

Is God something different from what we have known?

And can knowing that we are filled with all of God right now, just as we find ourselves to be, fill our hearts with all the joy we have ever desired?

Come on this journey with me, following the Ark of the Covenant into all the fullness of Almighty God.

Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Know all that you desire.
