The first thing to KEEP IT REAL is to grasp that the WAR IS OVER (FINISHED). But what about all the Kingdom, Sonship, and Third Day people who already know that?
They must clearly see that the WORD that has been forever SETTLED IN THE HEAVENS (Psa. 119:89) must be ESTABLISHED IN THE EARTH (made FLESH in TIME, incarnate); and that the KEY to that ESTABLISHMENT is ORDER!
Just as those in the first two Feasts of Passover and Pentecost have erred by failing to grasp the reality of the FINISHED WORK, so those in the Feast of Tabernacles must be careful not to take that wonderful truth to the extreme by mocking PROCESS! That would be foolish, for process is the CATALYST of transformation. That was true concerning the HUMANITY of the Firstborn Son (Rom. 8:29; Heb. 5:8-9; 1 Pet. 2:21).
2 Corinthians 13:1, KJV This is the THIRD TIME I am coming to you. IN THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES shall every word be ESTABLISHED (both MOSES in Deut. 17:6; 19:5, and JESUS Matt. 18:16 set forth the SAME principle).
Jesus Christ, the Pattern Son, is the FIRST WITNESS to all that has been settled in the Heavens. His GLORIOUS CHURCH, a mature Manchild Company, is destined to be the SECOND WITNESS that will ESTABLISH His FINISHED WORK in the earth!
Compare the “NAPKIN” of John 20:7 that had graced His HEAD, showing us that the work of the Head of the Church was FINISHED (Eph. 1:20-23). But the garments that were wrapped around His BODY lay in a separate place, unfurled, unfinished.
Isaiah 9:7, KJV Of the increase of His GOVERNMENT (Kingdom) and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to ORDER IT, and to ESTABLISH IT with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
The KEY to this ESTABLISHMENT throughout the nations of the earth is ORDER (see Gen. 22:9; 1 Chron. 15:13; Job 10:22; Psa. 119:133; 1 Cor. 14:40; and Tit. 1:5). This operation flows through THREE basic wineskins: (1) ORDER in the INDIVIDUAL – spirit, soul, and body; (2) ORDER in the HOME and FAMILY – married life; and (3) ORDER in the LOCAL CHURCH – corporate Body life.
1 Corinthians 12:21, KJV And the EYE cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the HEAD to the FEET, I have no need of you.
Some need His EYES, the revelation of Jesus’ FINISHED WORK. Others need His FEET, the PRACTICAL EXPRESSION and MANIFESTATION of truth, the WORD made FLESH in all areas of life—His NATURE, the FRUIT of the Spirit!
