Where are we? I believe we have come to THE DAYS OF RESTORATION. Jesus said that the fullness of the Kingdom (of Tabernacles) would not be established on earth until the ELIJAH WORK is first performed, which has to do with RESTORATION of true sacrificial worship (and of lost glory) in the Church. Let me go at this from another angle for you…
If we look into the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, and Zechariah in the light of this subject, we should be able to see that these four books deal particularly with the return of the remnant to Jerusalem following the captivity, and their attempts to RESTORE the walls of the city, the temple, and the order of religious worship to former glory. I believe that this is where we are at, beloved, spiritually speaking.
Now, Ezra was a priest, Nehemiah was the governor of Jerusalem, and both Haggai and Zechariah were prophets of the Lord who exhorted and encouraged the builders in the great tasks which lay before them. The remnant who had returned from Babylon to Jerusalem were DETERMINED THAT ALL THINGS SHOULD BE RESTORED ACCORDING TO THE ORIGINAL PATTERN. And so, they kept the Feasts of the Lord in their due season. “They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings, as the duty of every day required” (Ezra 3:4).
Now, beloved, these people COULD NOT YET KEEP THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES IN ITS FULLNESS, but they did OBSERVE THE PATTERN THE BEST THEY COULD and God honored their faith. For us I think this means that rays of this glorious Feast of Tabernacles (and of Sonship) have appeared to us on the eastern horizon (this mostly by way of revelatory teaching and sharing), and we have every reason to rejoice in this, knowing that even though we cannot yet celebrate the last great Feast in its fullness, THE DAYS OF RESTORATION ARE NOW HERE WHICH SHALL LEAD US INTO THAT!
Beloved, most of you should realize by now that little by little we are being shown by the Spirit THE PATTERN for the great coming Kingdom and Feast. With regard to this, we are also now expected to WORK TOGETHER AND BUILD according to this pattern that is being shown, just as they did in the days of Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, and Zechariah.
