Rebuilding the Tabernacle

After these things I will return, and I will rebuild the Tabernacle of David which has fallen, and I will rebuild its ruins, and I will restore it. (Acts15:16 NASB)

Last year, we set up a Tabernacle in our home. In the presence of God, there was touch of God, anointing, healing and rest.

But as time went on, the Tabernacle began to fall little by little. Being busy with ministry, the time at the feet of Jesus became less and less. The time in God’s presence became less and less. The Tabernacle was getting neglected.

Ministry began to replace intimacy. Busyness began to replace stillness. My plans began to replace God’s voice.

A few weeks ago, the Lord spoke to my heart clearly. “It’s time for you to rebuild the Tabernacle which has fallen.” “It’s time to restore it.”

And He reminded me of David moving the ark of God into Jerusalem. So we moved the Tabernacle from the corner of the bedroom to the livingroom-the centre of our home.

He also reminded me of the priest keeping the fire of God burning in the Old Testament. So we bought a candlestick and lit the candle. And we put on worship CDs and let it play day and night. 

Now the music is playing again. the fire of worship is burning. The incense of prayer is rising. The sweet presence of the Lord is filling our home.

Lord, let this fire never go out. Let it burn till the fire of God’s glory covers the earth. Just as the priests, let me keep the fire burning day and night, night and day. Lord, let the fire burn! Let it burn!!
