Dear Glory Seekers:
I am presently en route to Wichita, Kansas to join Dutch Sheets for another of our 22 “Changing a Nation” gatherings. I had watched very carefully where the Lord would position me for the start of the Feast of Tabernacles, which begins tonight at sundown. We are so grateful that Sandy Newman and DeeAnn Ward are hosting this “One Night – One Voice!” gathering to allow a new sound of celebration and victory to arise in Kansas and across this nation.
Tonight at 6 PM: Breaking Open the Revelation of the Hebraic Month of Tishri!
I hope many of you near the Global Spheres Center will be able to attend tonight’s special gathering at 6 PM to pray into the release of revelation for this month of Tishri. At the start of the Feast of Tabernacles, we are setting aside time to intercede for the breaking open of God’s Word, to cause great joy and thanksgiving to be our portion in the week ahead. If you cannot join this corporate gathering in the Tabernacle led by Lisa Lyons, make plans to join by webcast (live or replay).

The worship by Stefan Micheascu and his team opened the way to an amazing time of ministry by Beckah Shae … so be prepared to ascend in an entirely new way!
Seven Days of Feasting and Rejoicing!
As Robert Heidler shared on Sunday morning, the Feast of Tabernacles is a celebration of God’s glory. We not only remember past experiences of His glory, but also seek His face to experience His glory now. Tabernacles is a time to enjoy the Lord, and to celebrate His goodness. For those who set aside seven days to meet with the Lord, a special promise is given. Leviticus 23:40 says, “Rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days.” Deuteronomy 16:14-15 says, “Be joyful at your feast for the Lord your God will bless you and your joy will be complete.”
These next seven days are a special time to celebrate the fact that God tabernacles with His people. He wants His glory to be a normal part of our experience. He tabernacled with Israel in the wilderness. He tabernacled on earth in Jesus and He continues to tabernacle with us today through His Spirit! As you celebrate Tabernacles beginning tonight, call out to God for His glory to come and dwell with you. Robert shared these key points that can help you during this time:
- Set aside time to “tabernacle” with God.
- Find times to meet with Him.
- Spend relaxed times in His Word.
- Get together with family and friends.
- Share testimonies of His goodness.
- Eat your favorite foods.
- Thank Him for His blessings.
- And especially if you have children, build a sukkah (a tabernacle, or temporary shelter).
Part of celebrating Tabernacles is to bring an offering as an expression of thanks to God. Deut. 16:16-17 says, “No man should appear before the LORD empty-handed: each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the LORD your God has blessed you.” When we express our thankfulness in giving, it opens our heart to receive even more. If you would like to give a special offering at this time, you can donate online, by calling our office at 1-888-965-1099 or 1-940-382-7231, or by postal mailing your gift to Glory of Zion, PO Box 1601, Denton TX 76202.
