The Third Day Church Revealed in the Tabernacles!
Heb 8:5 They serve as a pattern and foreshadowing of [what has its true existence and reality in] the heavenly things (sanctuary). For when Moses was about to erect the tabernacle, he was warned by God, saying, “See that you make it all [exactly] according to the pattern which was shown to you on the mountain.”
Heb 9:1 Now even the first covenant had regulations for divine worship and for the earthly sanctuary. 2 A tabernacle (sacred tent) was put up, the outer one or first section, in which were the lampstand and the table with [its loaves of] the sacred showbread; this is called the Holy Place. 3 Behind the second veil there was another tabernacle [the inner one or second section] known as the Holy of Holies, 4 having the golden altar of incense and the ark of the covenant covered entirely with gold. This contained a golden jar which held the manna, and the rod of Aaron that sprouted, and the [two stone] tablets of the covenant [inscribed with the Ten Commandments];
Acts 15:16 ‘After this I will return And will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, And I will set it up; 17 So that the rest of mankind may seek the LORD, Even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, Says the LORD who does all these things.’
The Third Day Church is a Revelation that runs through the bible like a thread emphasising what Jesus said that upon this Rock of Revelation, I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it(Matt 16:18). What kind of church will overwhelm the gates of the enemy and possess the inheritance ordained for her?- definitely not a sin-filled church, a compromised church or a luke-warm church!
It is not even a church that dwells in the outer court of the tabernacle camping on the revelation and provision of the Brazen altar and the Laver of Redemption and Regeneration! It is a church that has engaged God in the Holy place on the Table of Shewbread(Word) illuminated by the Golden lampstand(Holy Spirit) and actively interceding at the golden altar of incense! But if the church were to stop here, it would be good but still not the Third Day Church!
The Veil separating the Holy of Holies from the Holy Place was torn from top to bottom when Jesus breathed his last at the Cross signifying that the church can go into the Holy of Holies and dwell there! A covenant people represented by the Ark of the Covenant saturated with the glory of the Lord and shining in amazing light full of the Father’s Love! Now that is the Third Day Church! A church walking in the presence of the Father looking at the face of Jesus and being transformed into His glory! Let us press in and dwell in the fullness as a Third Day Church that will be able to change the world! Amen.
