Repairing the Breach in the Tabernacle of David--Part 1
Aug 17, 2010
When I recently started my series in Galatians, I had no idea how this fit into the bigger picture. This began to clarify last Saturday.
I flew to San Francisco on Saturday, August 7 to meet with a Spanish Church called the House of Prayer. The facilities were small, so I did not want to tempt many of you to come like a flood and overwhelm them. This is why I wrote that these meetings were not open to the general public.
The last time I taught there was in July of 2000. I recorded the events of that trip in chapter 24 of The Wars of the Lord. The work at that time was about "Repairing the Wall" at the Sheep Gate, known to us as the Golden Gate Bridge. The breach in the prayer wall protecting America had occurred in 1981 and was the occasion of the first Net of Prayer warfare.
Three of us made a scouting trip into San Francisco on July 12, 2000 after receiving the revelation of Luke 3:16 and 17, "He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire." We were led to go to Fifth Street, where the Father told us that we would see a sign. It turned out to be a very literal sign (banner) held by two young ladies, which read, "San Francisco on Fire." It was a sign of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the "fire" of God.
Later, we declared the breach repaired and then on July 16 we walked across the Golden Gate Bridge to inspect the Gate. We found it to be repaired.
Ten years later three of us were again led to go into San Francisco on another scouting trip. This was August 14, 2010. We walked along the Fisherman's Wharf as far as a partially broken down pier. We could only walk on the right side of the pier, because the left side was blocked off, due to deterioration of the concrete. The Golden Gate Bridge could be seen clearly in the background.
Because this was ten years after our original trip to the Golden Gate Bridge, I thought our current work was to check on that previous work, so when I looked at the Golden Gate Bridge from the pier, I discerned that it was not in need of further repair. But when Rafael looked out, he saw a "mixed bag." This told me that something else had to be done. But what was it?
We had stopped at a sign on the pier that read, "Closed," notifying us that the left side of the pier was off limits to pedestrians, due to the deterioration of the concrete. At this point it still did not occur to me that we were dealing with a secondary breach within the Gate. But as we began to walk back, we passed another "Closed" sign that was identical to the other, except that someone had put their name tag on it, which read, "Hello: My Name is AMOS."
The name Amos was handwritten in large letters. We had walked past this sign about 20 feet before it occurred to me that this was about Amos 9:11. We walked back to the sign and took a picture of it. Amos 9:11, of course, was part of the revelation of 911 (i.e., Sept. 11, 2001), when God removed His hand of protection from America and released the second "bear" to bring about the second Gulf War.
"In that day I will raise up the fallen booth [tabernacle] of David, and wall up its BREACHES; I will also raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old."
We understood that the Twin Towers demolition represented a breach that would ultimately be repaired. But nearly nine years had gone by with no indication of any repairs on the breach other than New York's plan to rebuild the Twin Towers.
So this is why we were there in San Francisco once again. It was ten years (the Hezekiah Factor) from the year 2000, and once again we were called to repair a breach. This was not the same breach, but the theme was the same. The biblical number associated with the repair of the breach is 52, as seen in Nehemiah 6:15. The year 2000 had been 52 years since 1948, so we understood that the work done in July 2000 was actually a work to repair the breach caused by the Church giving the Birthright away to the (non-Christian) Jewish State.
The Birthright is the right to give birth to the Sons of God, who are the inheritors of the Kingdom. Giving away this right to non-Christians ensured that the Sons of God would NOT be brought forth during the Latter Rain Movement of 1948-1952. It would have to await another day after this breach had been repaired in the year 2000.
Secondly, since there are always consequences to everything, it is plain that America's recognition of the Israeli state as "Israel" in 1948 has brought about many consequences since then. It caused a breach in that part of the world that has now resulted in the radicalization of Islam and has ensured that war would continue until the counterfeit Israel is destroyed.
In July 2000 the final peace initiatives were attempted at Camp David under President Clinton. These talks ended in anger on July 25, 2000, the same day that the Concorde crashed in Paris. The Lord spoke then, saying, "Peace has been taken from the earth." (Concorde means peace.) Precisely 414 days later was Sept. 11, 2001, when the secondary breach occurred, plunging us into war.
So when we observed "Amos" on the pier on August 14, 2010, we understood that this was another very literal SIGN dealing with the breach of 911. But this time it was about repairing the Tabernacle of David that has fallen down.
The Tabernacle of David was an open tent that David built for the Ark of the Covenant prior to the construction of Solomon's Temple. We see this in 2 Sam. 6:17,
"So they brought in the Ark of the Lord and set it in its place inside the tent which David had pitched for it; and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord."
David was a priest after the Order of Melchizedek (Psalm 110:4), as was Jesus (Heb. 7:17). Both were of the tribe of Judah, which meant they were not eligible to minister as priests under the Old Covenant. Only Levites of the family of Aaron could minister under that Covenant. But the Order of Melchizedek was not genealogy dependent. And hence we too are able to approach God as priests, though we are not Levites.
David's Tabernacle was a place where non-Levites could approach God if they were of the Melchizedek Order. This Order was reconstituted by Jesus Christ, for James tells us in Acts 15,
(13) Brethren, listen to me. (14) Simeon has related how God first concerned Himself about taking from among the Gentiles a people for His name. (15) And with this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written, (16) "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, (17) in order that the rest of Mankind may seek the Lord, and all the Gentiles who are called by My name, (18) says the Lord, who makes these things known from of old."
James was quoting Amos 9:11 and 12 from the Septuagint (Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures). The issue of this first Jerusalem Church Council was to establish the relationship of God with non-Jews of other nations. The Tabernacle of David was known to be a place where there were no genealogical restrictions in approaching God, nor did any man have to be physically circumcised to meet with God.
It is, then, no coincidence that I should be commenting on the Book of Galatians at this time, where this is one of the major themes of Paul's letter. Galatians puts the Tabernacle of David into a historic context, showing its fulfillment in the First Century. However, since 1948 that Tabernacle has again fallen down, because the Church re-established Levi's genealogy as necessary to be a priest of God.
