Heaven and Earth As One

13 Jul

Heaven and Earth As One…

The Feast of Tabernacles is a beautiful and even mystical feast. For it celebrated two things at once. They would celebrate God’s faithfulness to them in the wilderness while living in the Promised Land.

The tabernacle in which they camped out represented the wilderness, and yet it was made of branches of fruits from the Promised Land. It was a joining together of the wilderness and the Promised Land.

This is a profound thing. For the Promised Land represents to God’s children the Kingdom of Heaven. And the wilderness, or the journey to get there, represents this life right now. So the Feast of Tabernacles reveals a rarely understood truth….

For the child of God, Heaven and earth are joined. What does it mean? It means, though you journey on earth, your journey is not to be of earth. It’s to be of Heaven. For it is written that even now, you are to dwell in the Heavenlies. And you can only do that if Heaven is here and now.

Learn to see Heaven in the midst of your life today, walk Heavenly, live Heavenly. For where the Lord and His camp is… there is Heaven.

 On the first day you are to take branches from luxuriant trees—from palms, willows and other leafy trees—and rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days. Celebrate this as a festival to the Lord for seven days each year. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come; celebrate it in the seventh month. Live in temporary shelters for seven days: All native-born Israelites are to live in such shelters so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in temporary shelters when I brought them out of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.’” Leviticus 23:40-43

Think about one situation where God has brought you out of the wilderness and into the Promised Land – and celebrate.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
