A New Era: Time to Tabernacle with the Lord
By Jacquie Tyre
"And it came to pass, when Moses entered the tabernacle, that the pillar of cloud descended and stoodatthe door of the tabernacle,
and the LORD talked with Moses. . .So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.
And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle."
Exodus 33:9, 11
During this season of the Feast of Tabernacles, the Lord has issued an invitation for us to draw near to Him in a new way, to open our hearts, our homes, our businesses, our ministries -- the fullness of our lives -- to His abiding, "tabernacling" presence. What I sense strongly by Holy Spirit is that as we respond to His invitation, He is postured to come to us with greater manifestation of His presence. He is looking for places of habitation, places of abiding, places that have been prepared to be altogether His.
Even in typing these words, I am overwhelmed with His nearness, with the passionate, pounding heart of the Lord drawing near.
There is an interesting dynamic to the this season. On the one hand, He is drawing very near to all who say "Come near, Lord, all I am and all I have is yours." At the same time, He is opening up the gates of glory to all who set their hearts to press on and press through in passionate pursuit of His presence. These are those who refuse to stay put in the last season or to give in to whatever may be attempting to resist or block the breakthrough into the deeper depths of intimacy that He has for us. Both pursuit and response from the Lord and from us are at work by faith in this hour. He pursues, we respond. We pursue, He responds. The glory of His presence that is opening in this hour, words fail to describe.
With the increased manifest presence of the Lord, comes an increase of His Kingdom rule. Where the King dwells, His throne is established. Where His throne is established, His Kingdom has drawn near to bring salvation, healing, deliverance, signs, wonders and miracles in the power of Holy Spirit. These are normal in His Kingdom! (Matthew 6:10; 12:28, 9:1-8, Luke 8:1, Luke 9:1-2, 10-11; 10:9; 17:20-21; 18:16-17; John 3:3-5, Acts 8:12, Romans 14:16-18, I Corinthians 4:20 - provided below)
Father, according to the character, nature, and authority of Your Own Son, Jesus, I ask that you would stir our hearts to press in to seek Your face and grace us to prepare a place of Your habitation that You would be delighted to come and tabernacle among us. Lord, I pray that You might grant that we might all know the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over allthingsto the church,which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. (Eph 1:17-23)
Father, I declare over Your people, according to Your word and the prophetic revelations being given by Holy Spirit, that we have crossed over and are even now crossing over into the fullness of the New Era of Your glory manifesting on the earth. In the name of Jesus, I declare that Your people are aligning with Your plumb line and the grace to shift is available for all who would say "yes" to Your invitation in this hour.
Before every obstacle, every mountain, and every valley that lies before Your people shall become a plain, and declare "grace, grace" to the sealing of every situation according to Zechariah 4. We declare that we do not despise the days of small beginnings and we rejoice to see the plumb line of the Lord, knowing that You drop Your plumb line where Your eyes are looking for a place to come and tabernacle and bring Your Kingdom rule.
Thank You, Lord, that we are living in this age, and grant that these people might move swiftly and fully into all You have purposed for this New Era....that Your Kingdom might be advanced, Your glory be revealed, and the reality of Your love be made known throughout the land. Lord, I pray that You might be well pleased to grant and establish these things according to Your word -- for Your glory and the delight of Your people. Amen.
