The original Tabernacle of David was established by King David when he brought back the Arc of the Covenant to Jersusalem. Prior, the Arc was to be in the Tabernacle of Moses, but when David became king he burned with a vision for a new tabernacle to be erected where the manifest presence of God was made available and was unveiled before the people. A place where musicians who were gifted in worship would join the intercessors (the watchmen), the prophets and seers (God's spokesmen), and the scribes (those with the gift of discernment and the ability to document what takes place in the presence of the Lord). Here they were all commissioned and employed to perform the work of day and night ministry before the Lord. What King David launched was a worship model never before seen on the Earth. Through prophetic insight, David got a glimpse into the heavenly throne room of God. The Tabernacle of David became the first illustration of what our new covenant roles as Kings and Priests was to be.
Now fast forward a few hundred years from the book of Samuel to Revelations and we get our first look into what David must have seen when he set up his worship model. In Revelations, John gets brought up into heaven and given a front row seat into the throne room of God. It is here we see the purest expression of worship in action complete with all of heaven's splendor, twenty-four elders, and the four living creatures. We see the elders casting down their crowns and worshiping at the feet of Jesus. We get imagery of thunder, lightning, crystal rivers flowing from the throne, and briliant jewels, stones and rainbows. Then we read further and see something incredible take place. There is an exchange that happens. Heavenly insight, vision, and commissioning is given to John to take back to Earth. Think about this, the angel of the Lord invites John up into the throne room of the Most High God where the glorious display of beauty and majesty are revealed to him while the ultimate worship services is taking place.
Now for me, that would be it. I'd say let's call it a good life and let me stay here forever, but no, what happens next is simply amazing. The angel begins to show John "what is to come". He gives him heaven's perspective on Earthly matters. From the throne room to the war room, so to speak. In the heavenly realm everyone already knows that Jesus Christ has already overcome. The victory is sealed, completed, and "it is finished". So everything received from this realm is intended to give the Body of Christ still living on the Earth a hope for the future along with strategies and solutions for that which is now and is to come. I think of it as the divine instruction manual to see heaven come to Earth to prepare the way for Christ's return. Taking us to the time when all things will be reconciled and the new heaven and new Earth will be revealed.
That brings me to today, what is the Global Tabernacle of David? It is the gathering of those called as throne room worshippers (or Davidic Worshippers) from the global Body of Christ (every nation, tribe, and tongue) for the purpose of ascending as priests in worship before the throne of God, and descending as kings with the solutions from heaven for the needs of our earthly communities, nations, and the world at large. It is time to restore the Tabernacle of David in the fullness of its purpose on the Earth. The Body of Christ from all over the world coming together with our eyes fixed on the King of kings and Lord of lords and our lives entrained with the vibrations of heaven to see His kingdom come and His will be done on Earth just as it is in heaven.
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
Revelation 22:16-17 NKJV
