"I have waited for what has broken out in Florida! How many of you have not heard what is going on in Florida? One of the greatest revivals in the earth - a historical revival - started literally almost to the day (or within days) when your pastor (he is Rob Rufus!) stood in this pulpit to this congregation and said; "A Global Flood is Coming to the Planet" and it will touch the whole planet and there will be a flood of miracles, signs and wonders like the earth has never seen before. How many of you remember that? Within that time the Florida Outpouring broke out!
Every day He can fall on you in resturants, fall on you at work! He will come on you -rushing into your life! One more Scripture and we close. Go to Acts chapter 10. Peter - a Jewish apostle - is going to Gentile Christians and they are not saved. Acts 10:36 - the Gentiles have invited him and they are Italians and it is Cornelius's home. Peter is preaching to Gentiles who are not born again; "He is the One appointed by God ... to Him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins" - not "sin" only - "through His Name. While Peter was saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the Word and the believers of the circumcised who had come with him were amazed because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles for they heard them speak in tongues and extolling God".
Now the Holy Spirit fell on them - He could not wait - He came rushing into the meeting and fell on them. They got saved and filled with the Holy Spirit straight away! Sometimes you can be preaching and people break out in laughter and people say; "Oh that is interupting the message!".
No the message CAUSED the interuption!
At what point did the Holy Spirit break in here where He couldn't wait anymore? "I can't wait anymore Peter - get out of the way!". He interupts the sermon when Peter said; "Everyone who believes on Him receives the forgiveness of sins". Peter was saying this and THEN the Spirit fell.
Do you understand what is going on here? Those who have been Christians for a number of years will. Modern preachers criticise this as "easy believism". You just believe and there it is! Where's the repentance Rob!? Notice they didn't even challenge repentance here. There are many places in the book of Acts where repentance doesn't seem to occur. Acts 10 - no repentance and they got saved. We went to China and where is repentance!?
Folks - repentance is something quite beautiful. It simply means change the way you think. God is not my enemy - God loves me! I want to be saved! And God comes rushing in! Today they would say to people that if you want to receive the Holy Spirit you must go through five classes and get purified and repent of all sin and get rid of this and get rid of that. Listen - the Holy Spirit said; "I'm not interested in that rubbish - this isn't the law - this is New Covenant! This isn't Mount Sinai! I am coming ready or not!". And He falls on them! I would love to be able to talk about the "Feast of Tabernacles" but I am going to close with reading this to you.
When you get into this flow the Holy Spirit falls on you over and over again and more and more. I don't know how many of you can receive this.
The Feast of Tabernacles was the last feast and the greatest feast. It is the ultimate closing of the age feast. We have seen all the feasts fulfilled but we haven't seen the Feast of Tabernacles fulfilled yet. I am telling you that I believe this outpouring in Florida is a feast not of Pentecost but of Tabernacles. The Feast of Tabernacles is the single, great ingathering of the harvest in the time of the rain. I've got about a 20 hour teaching on the Feast of Tabernacles from many years back but I want to give you in 1 minute (don't check your watches) - put John 7:2. It makes clear that this is the feast of tabernacles and in John 7:14 Jesus came during that feast and on the last day, He stood up and cried out; "If anyone thirsts let him come to Me and drink ... this He said about the Spirit whom those who believed in Him were to receive for as yet the Spirit had not yet been given for He was not yet glorified".
Now Jesus HAS been glorified! Remember John 17 - Jesus said; "Father glorify Me with the glory I had before". And He is going back to heaven - died on the Cross, raised and ascended on high and was glorified. He spoke to His disciples for 40 days and 10 days later Pentecost. 50 days after Pentecost Jesus was glorified. The Spirit fell at Pentecost - but this is speaking of the Feast of Tabernacles, the great ingathering - the ultimate climax and consumation of the ages is about to be summed up in a Feast of Tabernacles. A greater outpouring than the Day of Pentecost! A great ingathering of billions of people into the harvest - into salvation in Jesus Christ in our time.
I feel His Presence upon me. The Feast of Tabernacles - the great ingathering. I am going to read seven things that the Old Covenant teaches that this Feast was about. I will read them and close! I can give you Scriptures for each of these seven things that all talk about the Feast of Tabernacles - the great ingathering, the great outpouring - greater than Pentecost!
1. It was a Feast that manifested unity - not institutional but organic unity. I wrote this down about the Florida Outpouring while I was watching this on streaming on Thursday morning. I felt God speak this to me and I wrote it down;
"About this anointing through the media - what God impressed me with was that this anointing is linking and joining on-fire Christians in a conciousness and awareness of global unity - a sense of desiring and standing for each other's success and for everyone's protection. The Body of Christ loving one another Because of the anointing of the Feast of Tabernacle coming on the earth".
Let's stand with the global day of prayer in the city next week - there is an anointing of organic unity. I don't like minister's fraternals - I don't like arranged unity and organised unity and we all have to go down to the lowest denominator and agree to disagree. That's not unity! Unity is dynamic and it is powerful! It is the outpouring of God that will bring a Feast of Tabernacle unity and the power of the Spirit and not man organising it!
2. It is a Feast of Joy. It speaks of ecstatic joy in the Feast of Tabernacles! For 1900 years there has been a drought of joy. This Feast will bring ecstatic joy.
3. It is a Feast of Ingathering. A great ingathering of the harvest in the time of the rains.
4. It is a Feast of Rest. There comes a peace and a rest in the Presence of God. How many want to enter rest on a daily basis?
5. It is a Feast of Glory. The Church will pass from the realm of the natural into the realm of the supernatural.
6. It is a Feast of Restoration. The prophets are talking about God restoring all things now! Even a lost penknife - a lost wallet - a lost suitcase - things are falling from the air in front of them! "Lord I want my penknife back" - bam! There it is on the bed! Family are gathering! Natural things are being restored around the earth. But it also means that every gift and every ministry are being restored and even important are going to be positioned correctly in the Body of Christ. Evangelists are not going to try and be teachers and pastors. Everyone will be ordered - restoration of EVERYTHING! That has been lost through the years of the Dark Ages.
7. It is a Feast of His Appearing. In the middle of this Jesus will suddenly appear as He did in John 7. He started teaching - revelation from the Son of God. His manifestation will appear in the glory in the Feast of Tabernacle.
There is coming a distinction between those who will walk under an open heaven depending on God in sincerity and integrity and genuinely depending on the supernatural and those who are intellectual, self-righteous, legalistic, and religious. The shakings that are coming and the revival that is coming will make a distinction in the Body of Christ.
"What is happening in Florida is not just for Florida - God is speaking clearly - it is going all over the globe. It's for Hong Kong. God we need it in Hong Kong! We're desperate for it for Hong Kong! ... Let the Feast of Tabernacles manifest on that gathering ...".
