an earth-shaking fulfillment - J P Eby

There is a mystery about the feast of Tabernacles. It is the only one of the three feasts of Israel that as yet has not had an earth-shaking fulfillment. The fundamentalists know Christ in the feast of Passover. The Pentecostals and Charismatics know Christ in the feast of Pentecost. We ourselves have joyfully witnessed some of God’s great deliverances, signs, wonders, and mighty acts in these realms! But who is there among us that has demonstrated a glory or power beyond Pentecost? Just having “deeper revelation” and “feeling something wonderful in the spirit” in a meeting does not mean you are walking in Tabernacles! Therefore, the feast of Tabernacles has not been celebrated in a spiritual dimension by the Lord’s people the world over as has been the case with the other two festivals, those of Passover and Pentecost. Truly we can say — Passover has come, Pentecost has come, and Tabernacles must come, for each is a part of God’s great plan for His people! – J P Eby
