PURPOSE OF ABUNDANCE IN THE LAST DAYS:
God gave specific instructions for the dimensions and the materials to be used in the construction of the Tabernacle. It was a lavish building, portraying the finest craftsmanship, sporting gold, silver and precious stones. The cost of the building was monumental.
God had already provided the abundance required to build the Tabernacle. When the Hebrews had left Egypt, they took with them the riches and treasures of Egypt.Exodus 12:35-36
Although Solomon was designated to build the Temple, David, his father, gave an incredible amount of money for the construction. David declared, “I have a private treasure of gold and silver which I give for the house of my God: It is 3,000 talents of gold,… 7,000 talents of refined silver for overlaying the walls of the house.” In today’s dollars, this would amount to 100s of millions of dollars. I Chron. 29:3-4, Amplified Bible
During the reign of King David, the nation of Israel prospered greatly. After David’s pledge from his private treasure, he took up an offering from the chiefs, princes, and captains of the tribes of Israel. The amount of the offering was 5,000 talents of gold, 10,000 talents of silver, 18,000 talents of bronze, and 100,000 talents of iron. The combination of these two offerings would amount to billions of dollars in today’s economy. I Chron. 29:5-7, Amplified Bible
As in the building of the Tabernacle, once again God had provided abundance, so that this exquisite temple could be built.
The Tabernacle and the Temple were the symbols of the dwelling place of the Lord God-the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
“‘And I will shake all nations, and the desire (wealth) and the precious thing of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor, says the Lord of hosts…and the glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the glory of the former house’, says the Lord of hosts, ‘and in this place will I give peace,’says the Lord of hosts” Haggai 2:7, 9
Notice the connection between the move of God and the wealth of the nations. The wealth that will be required to gather in the harvest of souls will be monumental. However, God has given that wealth collectively to His chosen vessels—those to whom He presented the “gift of giving” and those to whom He endowed with riches.
The latter temple is more precious to the Lord than the Tabernacle or the Temple—the only creation of God that can be redeemed by the blood of His Son, Jesus. Those who are redeemed become the temples for the Holy Spirit—the sanctuary where He has chosen to dwell. God has prophesied that He will fill this house (temple) with splendor, and that its glory will be greater than that of the former house.
“Come to Him [then, to that] Living Stone which men tried and threw away, but which is chosen [and] precious in God’s sight. [Come] and as living stones be yourselves built [into] a spiritual house, for a holy (dedicated, consecrated) priesthood, to offer up [those] spiritual sacrifices [that are] acceptable and well pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.” I Peter 2:4-5, Amplified Bible
The “living stones” in the last days (that last great harvest) will be carved and chiseled out of every nation, tribe, and tongue (language).
TEMPLE OF HOLY SPIRIT:
“Do you not know that your body is the temple—the very sanctuary—of the Holy Spirit. Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a gift] from God? You are not your own, you were bought for a price—purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.” I Corinthians 6:19-20
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, dark-ness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you, and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” Isaiah 60:1–5 NASB
PICTURE OF THE REDEEMED:
“After this I looked and a vast host appeared which no one could count, [gathered out] of every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages. These stood before the throne and before the Lamb: they were attired in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. In loud voice they cried, saying, ‘[Our] salvation is due to our God Who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb—to Them [we owe our] deliverance!’” Rev. 7:9-10, Amplified Bible
Jesus commissioned us to “go and make disciples of all nations.” They must have teaching in order to become disciples—“teachingthem to observe everything that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always—even to the close of the age.”Matthew 28:19-20
Jesus said, “And this good news of the kingdom (the gospel) shall be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end.”Matthew 28:20, Amplified Bible
Through Bible Colleges on-line, that is colleges whose courses are accessed via the internet, the gospel has gone to many nations in the world. However, there are still many who either have no access to the internet or no access to a computer. Therefore, AFOL has accepted the challenge to establish Bible Colleges throughout the world, in order to present the gospel in every language, every culture, and every tongue. This will require a teacher who is acquainted with our Bible courses and who can translate from English into his/her respective language and culture. Veteran students of AFOL in various countries are stepping forward to accept a commission to spread the gospel to their respective region. For this, we praise our wonderful God.
It will require a great amount of money to cover all the nations of the Earth with the gospel. It will require all of our energy and all of our time. Every believer will have an assignment to perform—either in preparing laborers for the last harvest, or in working the harvest itself. And those whose gift of grace is indeed the gift of giving will have an important assignment as well—that being the financing of the Last Harvest, both the preparation of the laborers and the harvesting of the souls.
We have been equipped to administer the defeat of Satan and the victory of Jesus over Satan. We have been endued with power from on high. We have the promise of Jesus that He gave at the end of the Great Commission—“lo, I am with you always—even to the close of the age.”
Let’s push the Great Commission.
