The glory of the Lord is to appear over Zion (Isa. 60:2) and

there are to be those who

“fly along like clouds”

(Isa. 60:8).

Psalm 105:28 - 106:5 gives part of the past history of the

Israelites, which will be repeated in the future tribulation, but

ends in the joy of becoming God’s inheritance. It speaks of

plagues, a cloud for covering, waters gushing out of rocks, and

glorying in God’s inheritance.

Heavenly & Earthly Tabernacles

It is upon Mt. Zion where the heavenly beings are to dwell,

in communication with the earth. This is what Peter anticipat-

ed. It was on a high mountain that the Lord showed His inner

circle of people (Peter, James, and John) a preview of Himself

coming in His regal splendor. Note that it was after six days, or

on the seventh day. This further suggests the coming of the

Lord on the beginning of the seventh or Sabbath-Millennial

Day! With the Lord was Moses, a type of the resurrected saints,

and Elijah, a type of the translated or raptured saints. A bright

cloud developed there.

Peter said to Jesus,

“Lord, it is good for us to be here; if

thou will, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and

one for Moses, and one for Elias”

(Matt. 17:4, KJV).

What Peter desired was the dwelling of heavenly people in

communion with the earth. It will be this way, beginning at the

Millennial Day. It appears that the first resident association of

heavenly with earthly will be at the marriage feast of the Lamb,

when Christ and His bride entertain wedding guests at the be-

ginning of the Millennium—at the first Feast of Tabernacles
