  4. 4. HISTORY REVEALS.... For the Feast of Tabernacles & Ingathering, the Lord commanded Israel to make booths to dwell in for seven days; however, the feast lasted for 8 days with the holy days being on the 1st & 8th days The booths were walled structures made from boughs or branches of “goodly trees” Each day a sacrifice was made to the Lord This feast served as a memorial for Israel reminding them that the Lord caused them to dwell in booths in the wilderness after being brought out of Egypt & also points to key events that will occur in the last days ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

  5. 5. SECTION I THE BOOTHS God’s Churches & Safe Havens for His Children ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  6. 6. THE BOOTHS (OR CHURCHES) Just as ancient Israel dwelt in booths some of God’s children also dwell in booths today These booths are small churches that the Lord is preparing in this spiritual wilderness for those people he has brought out of spiritual Egypt The spiritual wilderness is this world Spiritual Egypt is likened unto a life of sin ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  7. 7. PREPARING THE BOOTHS In order for these booths to be prepared they must first be founded upon the foundation of Christ What is that foundation?.........the 10 commandments of God Using the law as a measuring stick, these churches can establish a doctrine that is according to God’s will God’s little booths are safe havens for his children, a place where they can learn of his word ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  8. 8. NOT EVERY CHURCH IS A BOOTH NOT EVERY CHURCH in this world is considered a booth of God NOT ALL of GOD’S CHILDREN are in booths Why?.....many religious systems in this world have developed ideologies that do NOT advocate the keeping of God’s laws, replacing them with their own man-made traditions such as... Worshipping on Sunday as opposed to Sabbath Celebrating Easter instead of Passover ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  9. 9. NOT EVERY CHURCH IS A BOOTH These worldwide religious systems have deceived people all over the world with false doctrine This includes many of God’s children who are currently blind to the truth & still dwell in spiritual Egypt ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  10. 10. STRENGTHENING OF BOOTHS Before the Lord comes upon this earth, the Holy Spirit will be poured out to beautify and strengthen the small churches These churches will stand as signs and be places of refuge for God’s people whose eyes will be open to see what the real truth is ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

  11. 11. SECTION II THE TABERNACLE The Holy Mountain & the Footstool of Jesus Christ ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  12. 12. WHAT IS THE TABERNACLE? The Tabernacle is God’s holy sanctuary that will literally be brought down from heaven unto this earth during the second coming of Christ How?.....Christ will put his foot down on the Mount of Olives splitting it in two (Zechariah 14: 4-21) It will be a place of worship, refuge and safety for his people and will be covered by a ring of fire and clouds Where exactly is the Mount of Olives located? ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  13. 13. THE MOUNT OF OLIVES The Mount of Olives is a mountain ridge that parallels the eastern wall of Jerusalem, which is located in Israel This great mount is mentioned multiple times throughout the scriptures and was a place frequented several times by Christ during his first coming This is where he would often teach his disciples Christ also prayed to God the Father on the lower slopes of Mt. Olives at the Garden of Gethsemane just prior to his crucifixion When Christ returned to heaven after his first coming he ascended up from Mt Olives ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  14. 14. ISRAEL THE PROMISE LAND Because Mount Olives is located in Israel it is important to discuss this country God chose Israel as the Promise Land for the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and because of this fact, this is where the holy tabernacle will be placed ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  15. 15. CURRENT DAY ISRAEL Though Israel is known worldwide for it’s biblical history, in this current day it has also garnered attention for its ongoing Palestinian-Israeli conflict, severe economic problems and extreme climate events including draughts and floods Given these facts, one might wonder why God chose this country as the Promise Land ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  16. 16. THE GATE OF HEAVEN God chooses certain things and certain places to put his name upon Israel was chosen before the earth was created as the gate or entry way to heaven It is also the place where God chose to place his name and to place his feet Before the wicked nations came in to pollute the land, before the children of Israel came, when all was still good, this was the entryway to heaven, the place where God set his garden ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.

  17. 17. A “LAND FLOWING WITH MILK & HONEY” The land of Israel was supposed to be a sanctified land from the beginning, blessed by the presence and name of God It was supposed to be the land of milk and honey, the glory of all lands Deuteronomy 11:11-12, “But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven: A land which the Lord thy God careth for: the eyes of the Lord.” ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  18. 18. A DESOLATE LAND At this time, the land of Israel is nothing like the land of milk and honey Why?....God cursed the land because of Israel’s sin and spewed them out of the country, spreading them throughout the entire world Israel is now considered barren and desolate, even though it is occupied by many nations Because of sin, this land continues to be a site for blood shed, war and hatred ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  19. 19. CHRIST RETURNS Though the land of Israel is desolate & corrupted with sin, it will not always be this way When Christ returns he will take siege of Jerusalem and make war with all the nations of the world He will place his foot upon Mount Olives, causing an earthquake like no other The entire world will be impacted by Christ’s return and Israel will be changed forever becoming a place of peace, glory & beauty where God’s holy tabernacle & truth will be ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  20. 20. SECTION III THE INGATHERING The Final Harvest & Gathering Together of God’s People ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  21. 21. WHAT IS A HARVEST? To harvest is the process of gathering mature crops from a field The harvest marks the end of a growing cycle or the growth cycle for a particular crop Harvesting also includes the actions immediately after gathering the crop including cooling, sorting, cleaning & packing ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  22. 22. SPIRITUAL HARVEST Spiritually speaking, Christ is likened unto a farmer, the crops are people and the field is this world In this world there are crops that are of good seed, meaning they belong to God and crops that are tares, meaning they are children of Satan A child of God becomes a mature crop when he or she begins to walk perfectly in the eyes of the Lord; thus prepared for his coming When a child of God is harvested this involves the removal of sin & death as well as receiving the gift of immortality ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  23. 23. GOD’S CROPS Because crops have different growth cycles, some mature quicker than others The same principle applies to the children of God, meaning that we reach spiritual maturity at different times & rates Why?....God opens the eyes of his children according to his will through the Holy Spirit This is why only some of God’s people are currently privy to the holy truth while the rest are still in darkness Given these facts, the harvest of God’s people will occur in stages during the last days to ensure that all saints have the opportunity to prepare & be saved Ingathering specifically points to the final stage of the harvest ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  24. 24. A TIME OF PERIL Prior to God’s harvest, the perils & troubles of this world will continue to get worst as in the days of Noah & Lot We will see an increase in violence, sodomy, natural disasters as well as government & economic turmoil, all of which is prophesied of in the bible It is during these perilous times that God will open the eyes of his children that are in darkness; thus, preparing them for the harvest ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  25. 25. PREPARING FOR THE HARVEST There will be a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the saints of God that remain alive during the last days The everlasting gospel of Christ will be preached throughout the entire world & those once blind will open their eyes & accept the truth Remember the booths in Part I of this presentation?......many of God’s children , who have been recently introduced to the gospel, will go to these churches to learn of the word from saints that are already very knowledgeable in the truth ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  26. 26. EVENTS PRIOR TO THE FINAL HARVEST When Christ comes down on Mt Olives he will destroy much of the armies of the wicked in this world They will hate Christ for tearing up their cities and monuments, taking away their wealth and placing their governments in disarray The wicked will make themselves a leader, the Man of Sin, that will run this world with iron clad control & deceit The Man of Sin will be given power to kill the saints for 3 ½ years after which the angels of God will destroy him and his kingdom ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  27. 27. DURING THE FINAL HARVEST- INGATHERING The final harvest encompasses the gathering & uniting of ALL of God’s saints in their IMMORTAL bodies Because only a remnant of God’s people will remain alive during his coming, the resurrection of saints that died the common death is necessary to make this harvest complete (Please see class on “The Resurrection”) These saints will resurrect in flesh of glory that is no longer corrupted with sin & death All of the saints of God will meet & unite together in heaven at the marriage supper of the Lamb where each individual will be granted a crown of life ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  28. 28. CONNECTING IT ALL TOGETHER God has established booths, also known as churches, that are currently attended by those saints that are already knowledgeable about the truth As the Lord’s coming draws closer, He will pour out his Holy Spirit, to strengthen & beautify the booths & open the eyes of those of his saints that are in darkness These same saints will then have the desire to attend these booths to learn of God’s word & prepare for the harvest ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ. All Rights Reserved
  29. 29. CONNECTING IT ALL TOGETHER When the Lord returns & places his tabernacle on Mount Olives, he will destroy much of the armies of the wicked The wicked that remain alive will despise Christ for what he did and will seek the leadership of the Man of Sin who will be in power to persecute & kill the saints of God for 3.5 years After the Man of Sin has been in power for 3.5 years, he will be destroyed by the brightness of Christ’s coming The resurrection of the saints that died will then take place & ALL of God’s children will have immortality They will unite in heaven at the marriage supper of the Lamb making the final harvest complete ©2011 Household Of Israel Temple Of Jesus Christ.
