The Daily Word of Righteousness

The Move of God After Pentecost, continued

Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. (Isaiah 12:3)

Then God in Christ in the saints will descend on the nations and deliver all those who call on the name of the Lord. But the wicked and rebellious will be destroyed out of the earth.

The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies. (Isaiah 42:13)

. . . he also is become my salvation.

It is not merely that God has provided all the elements of our salvation. Rather it is true that God Himself has become our Salvation, a most critical distinction. In that Day we will know that Christ is in God, and we are in Christ, and Christ is in us. Christ is the Wheel in us and we are the wheel in Christ in God. We have become God's chariot.

Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

We undergo fiery testings while the Spirit of God is cleansing us from all unrighteousness. But then there is joy indescribable and full of glory when we become conscious that the Father and the Son are dwelling in us forever.

The feast of Pentecost and the feast of Tabernacles are both associated with water. Pentecost speaks of the former and the latter rains that will be poured on us, while Tabernacles signifies the establishing of the Throne of God and of Christ in us and the issuing of the River of Life from the Divine Presence that has been formed in us and is abiding in us forever.

Pentecost is associated with rain. Tabernacles is associated with the rivers of living water. Both speak of the Holy Spirit.

Can you see why the spiritual fulfillment of Tabernacles makes infinitely more demands on us than is true of Pentecost? Pentecost symbolizes the rain of God, the Holy Spirit, falling on us from Heaven. But the water of Tabernacles comes from the Throne of God and of Christ that has been formed in us.

It is one matter to have rain falling on you. It is another to have the Throne of almighty God formed in you so the water flows out from you. The Holy Spirit always flows from the Throne of God, from nowhere else!

The forming of the Throne in you requires that you do the Father's will absolutely, at all times, under all conditions.

Perhaps it was at the point when this verse (Isaiah 12:3) was being sung that Jesus of Nazareth stood and proclaimed the flowing of the River of Life from the belly of the believer.

In the experience of Pentecost the believers have ministered in fragmented gifts and manifestations of the Spirit. When we arrive at the complete fulfillment of Tabernacles, that which is perfect has come. No longer will we be seeing as in a clouded mirror. In that Day we shall know as we are known. We shall draw enough living water from the throne of Christ in us to release the entire creation from the bondage of corruption.

To be continued.
