Feast tabernacless Tabernacles – George H. A nd thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates” Deut. Israel continued to live in peace and prosperity as long as they obeyed God and walked in His ways. But with disobedience came drought and famine and depression–and the Feast of Tabernacles ceased to have any real meaning to them.
It is just as true with the Church of Christ. And though the Church as a Body has never really observed this Feast, there were nevertheless periods in her early history when she had a foretaste and an earnest of its glory. Our testimony is therefore that of Joel: Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.
The vine is dried up, the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: The new wine, the corn, the oil, the wheat, the twbernacles, the palm, the apple: And because of the spiritual drought in the Church: This hilarity of our modern churches is not the joy of the Holy Ghost.
In most cases it is the song of Babylon. In other words, it is an attempt of the enemy to lull the saints to sleep and to cause them tabenacles forget their heritage in the Spirit.
By Babylon we mean what it meant to Israel; bondage in a strange land. When Israel walked in disobedience they lost their glory, their beautiful temple, their place of worship, their prominence as a nation and kingdom.
And when the Church of Christ walked in disobedience, she too lost her glory, her beautiful temple was destroyed, and from her lofty position as a “holy nation” and a “royal priesthood” she degenerated into a nation of slaves and bondservants. Her people were taken captive at the hands of the world, the flesh, and the Devil–and her joy departed.

And so the Babylonians came to the children of Israel in their captivity, and said unto them, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion. The Church, likewise, has been too willing to accommodate the world in this manner, and to partake of her false joy.
But the godly remnant in Israel refused to do so, because they knew they had nothing to sing about. We ought to have been mourning and howling for the desolations wrought in the Church, instead of trying to generate a false joy in our midst.
And yet this continues unto georgd very hour: Get the sinners out to “church” and then preach the Gospel to them. But “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land? Israel did not have one percent of tabernzcles glory that the Church had in the beginning, and yet her people expressed far more sorrow and repentance in their desolation than we have in ours.
Mine eyes do fail with tears, my bowels are troubled, my liver is poured upon tabernacless earth, for the destruction of the daughter of my people; because the children and the sucklings swoon in the streets of the city. They say to their mothers, Where is corn and wine? Where is corn and wine? Where is purity of thought and conduct?
Where is holiness of life, and separation from the world and its charms?
Feast of Tabernacles – George Warnock
Georgd is victory over sinful habits, freedom from covetousness, from lying and falsehood, from malice and bitterness? Where is the desire to pray and seek God? To intercede on behalf of others?
To deliver those who are held captive by Satan, and set the oppressed free? Where is the mind of Christ, the life that is hid with Christ in God? But Babylon has been good to us; so good, in gabernacles, that we are one with them, participating in her pleasures, her politics, her wars, her earthly programs, her strife, and her religious systems. Consequently, as it was with Israel, so it is with the Church; as the cry goes forth in this hour for separation from the world and its systems, there is dismay.
God says, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” Rev.
Feast of Tabernacles – Chapter 9
But we have been utterly deceived by her veneer and her charm, not realizing that “her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” Rev. In her there is no good thing. Satan is “prince of the power of the air,” and “god of this world,”–and the whole world-system is anti-God and anti-Christ. Her doom is sealed. Has the Church of Jesus Christ not followed hand in hand with the course of this world for centuries, befriended her in all her devilish programs, and lived as her captive slaves?
But what else could we do? We were captives in a strange land, with no power to deliver ourselves. However, the cry goes forth, “Escape from Babylon With the turning of the captivity of the Church, joy is once again being restored, even the joy of the Holy Ghost.
Songs of Zion can be heard once again in the congregation of the saints, and the Choir of Praise has been restored to the Church. Singing in the Spirit is one sure evidence that Zion’s captivity is coming to an end. Says Paul, “Teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” Col.
Surely it is significant that Psalm has now been restored by the Spirit, music included: Then was our mouth filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing: Then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them. The Lord hath done great things for us; Whereof we are glad. Turn again our captivity, O Lord, As the streams in the south. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, Shall doubtless come again, Shall doubtless come again, Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, Bringing his sheaves with him. This, then, is a time for rejoicing. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: A faithful remnant are returning from the captivity to raise again the walls of Jerusalem and restore the gates of Zion.
And God is in the midst of her to bless and to impart the joy of the Holy Ghost.
