ISA.5:4 – Then Yahweh will create over all of Mount Zion and over every gathering a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night.

I have been pondering the Tabernacle of David and its prophetic fulfillment in the New Testament Church this week when this passage of scripture came to mind. Isaiah is describing a last day move of God that would be characterized by the outpouring of the Spirit which would result in churches filled with God’s tangible presence in every community all over the world. This began to be fulfilled through the ministry of Paul as he started churches amongst the gentiles in Asia and Southern Europe. Today it continues and accelerates as the end of the age draws near. Here is how Brian Simmons describes this prophesy.

“By the Judging Spirit and by the Burning Spirit, the Lord (Adonai) will wash away the filth from the churches of Christ—even bloodstains. The Hebrew word for “Spirit” can also be translated “breath” or “blast.” The blast of justice and the blast of fire are coming to cleanse God’s people. This Spirit of Judgment releases holy vision to see things as God sees them. Decisions will be made by the justice of God, not the prejudices of men. It is not that he merely executes judgment but that he demonstrates perfect discernment to see what is holy and what is not. This Spirit of fire (a possible reference to the baptism of fire, Matt. 3:11) will thoroughly cleanse God’s remnant and make them holy by refining fire (Mal. 3:2-4). A fire of passionate love for Jesus Christ will cleanse the church. The fire of love as a seal over our hearts will keep us pure from temptation and end-time distractions.”

The purpose of the New Testament church is to be a place where God Himself lives among us. In the Old Testament that’s what marked the people of Israel as unique. The glory of God was in the tabernacle in the wilderness and in the temple in Jerusalem. Today, He dwells in a temple not made by hands. The church gathers in physical buildings but God’s glory is on display when we gather together in worship and His presence begins to be revealed. David was a worshipper, that’s what defined him and set him apart. The supernatural church of the last generation is also a worshipping church, when they gather God is enthroned in their praises.
