God Tabernacles with Man – Number 1


There is coming a day, which I believe is not too far in the future, when God will again tabernacle with Israel! Isaiah presents a picture of it during the millennial reign of the returned Messiah.

Isaiah 4:6 – And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.

But before Messiah comes, Israel must pass through the period of 1260 prophetic days outlined by Daniel, John, and Zechariah.  It is during this period Israel will be overrun by the ten nation kingdoms of antichrist, driven into the great Negev wilderness south of Beersheba, and remain confined in that area until Messiah returns.  The “woman” of Revelation 12:6 is the “third” of Zechariah 13:8, and among the “third” are “the saints of the Most High” in Daniel 7:25, which represent 144,000 Israelis in Revelation 7:4 that are the seed of the woman Israel in Revelation 12:17.  About one-third of Israel (1.7 to 1.9 million) will make it into the Negev.  Among them will be the seed of the woman Israel, whose seed was Jesus, the Messiah, and they (the 144,000) will testify of Jesus as the Messiah, and keep his commandments.

Zechariah 13:8 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

Revelation 12:6 – And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Daniel 7:24,25 – And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. [25] And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.  (time = 1 year, times = 2 years, and the dividing of time = ½ year).

Revelation 7:4 – And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Revelation 12:17 – And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The woman = 1/3 Israel = 1.7 to 1.9 million survivors.

The woman’s seed is Jesus, and the 144,000 are his seed.

At the end of the 1260 days of Israel’s confinement in the Negev, Messiah will return, defeat the antichrist and his armies, and destroy him, his armies, and false prophet.

Revelation 19:11-13, 19-21 – And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [19] And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [21] And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

It is at this time that the Devil and all his angels are cast into the bottomless pit, and separated from mankind for a thousand years while the Lord of Hosts, the Messiah, reigns in Jerusalem.

Revelation 20:1-3 – And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. [2] And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, [3] And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Isaiah 24:21-23- And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. [22] And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. [23] Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

God Tabernacles with Man – Number 2


The O.T. Hebrew word for “tabernacle” or “tent” is OHEL.  The N.T. Greek word for “tabernacle” or “tent” is SKENOO.  The word SKENOO is translated “dwelt” in John 1:14.  God pitched himself in the tent body of his only begotten Son, and lived among us, ministering to mankind as the Messiah for more than three years.

John 1:6-14 – There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. [7] The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. [8] He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. [9] That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. [10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. [11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not. [12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [14] And the Word was made flesh, and DWELT among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Messiah will soon come again, and will pitch himself as a protective tabernacle over believing Israelites, shielding them from any earthy thing or element that is harmful.

Isaiah 4:6 – And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.

In Tabernacle Relationship Number 1, an exposition of numerous Scriptures was given regarding the events that must occur before Isaiah 4:6 will be fulfilled during the millennial reign of Messiah.  Please review Number 1 before continuing with Number 2.  The terrible prophecy of Zechariah 13:8 will come upon Israel prior to the return of Messiah, and only one-third of its population, or about 1.7 to 1.9 million Jews, will still be alive after the horrific pre-Messiah event outlined in Number 1.  But, in Zechariah 13:9, we are advised that the one-third will be protected by God, and that when the Messiah does come at his Second Advent, he will pitch the tabernacle of his bodily presence among them.

Zechariah 13:8,9 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. [9] And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.

The fantastic loss of male lives, during the fulfillment of the prophecy of Zechariah 13:8, will have created a situation, in the early stages of the millennial reign, such that males will exceed the proportion of females by a seven to one ratio.  A major thrust of Israel will be to repopulate the Abrahamic land grant they have received from Messiah, and women will feel their role to God is to have children to meet that need.  But, during the millennium, a man can only have one wife, so women will be very anxious to marry, and the supply of men will be limited.  Many men will die in the war, Jerusalem will fall, and even after it is retaken when Messiah returns, its gates will mourn those men who will never again pass through them.

Isaiah 3:25 to 4:3 – Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war. [26] And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground. [1] And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. [2] In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. [3] And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:

Zechariah vividly describes Jerusalem rejoicing during the millennial reign of God pitching his bodily tent as Messiah among them, as do many of the other prophets.

Zechariah 14:8,9 – And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. [9] And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.

Zechariah 14:11 – And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

Isaiah 66:13,14 – As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. [14] And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the Lord shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.
