The Feasts of the Lord Jesus are divided into three seasons of seven Feasts. These seasons or Hebrew “mow'ed” has the meaning of the divine appointments of God with mankind. To the Jew, this is the “Aliyah” or “going up” to Jerusalem in keeping the Feasts of the LORD as commanded by God to Israel. (Exodus 23:14-17).

The Season of Passover consisted on the Feasts of 1) Passover, 2) Unleavened Bread, and 3) Firstfruits. Jesus died as our Passover sacrificed for us, shedding his blood as a propitiation for our sin. Jesus as our Unleavened Bread was buried as unleavened meaning that he had no sin. Then fulfilling the season of Passover is Jesus as the Firstfruits, being the first resurrected from the dead. Jesus is the first begotten from the dead. We as the body of Christ must Feast with the Lord Jesus in eating His flesh and drinking His blood if we are to have life, and that more abundantly. The Church as the body of Christ must experience this season of Passover by experiencing these three Feasts of the LORD Jesus that make up Passover, also sometimes called the Feast of Unleavened Bread; being the Feast of Passover which is entered into by Repentance. The church experiences the Feast of Unleavened Bread by being baptized into Jesus’ death, being planted together with him having the spiritual circumcision of the heart by baptism in water. This is the meaning of Jesus telling Nicodemas that he must be born of the water as one of the steps in being born again. For it is by baptism that the believer has the body of sin removed or cut off from the heart or spirit with the body of sin being destroyed. The believer enters into the Feast of Firstfruits by being raised out of the watery grave just as Jesus was raised from the dead, death having no more dominion over him, he lives unto God. So does the believer that has taken part with Jesus in the Feast of Firstfruits in that he is dead indeed to sin, but alive unto God, being a new creature in Christ Jesus. For he that has been baptized into Christ has put on Christ.  

The next progressive Season of the Lord Jesus is the Feast of Weeks also known as the Feast of Pentecost. Jesus stated that this generation would not pass until they saw the Son of man coming in His kingdom. This kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, joy, and peace in the Holy Ghost. Jesus came in the Feast of Pentecost fifty days after the Feast of Firstfruits; that is, fifty days after He resurrected from the dead. Jesus gave us the promise of the Holy Ghost some 2,000 years ago when He gave us of His Spirit. The believer experiences the Feast of Pentecost when he/she is baptized with the Holy Ghost and that with fire with the outward evidence in speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. If any man have not the Spirit of God, he is none of His. For if the Spirit dwells in you which also dwelled in the Lord Jesus, it shall quicken or make alive your mortal body. For the body is dead to sin, but alive unto God. We are to yield our members as servants to righteousness rather than servants to sin. For whomsoever you yield your members as servants to obey, to him are you servants to whom you obey; whether unto obedience unto righteousness, or to sin unto death. We must live a holy life with our bodies presented as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God which is our reasonable service, and be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind, that we may prove what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God for each of us is and fulfill the call of God in our individual lives.

The third and final Season of the LORD Jesus is Tabernacles. The Season of Tabernacles consists of three Feasts of the Lord Jesus; the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles. Two-thirds of the prophecy given in the Word of God remains to be fulfilled in the greatest work of God, for God has saved the best for last. For the last great harvest was in the season of Tabernacles. This season was the most joyful of all the Feasts of the LORD. Much can be said of the current day in the Feasts of Trumpets that lays just ahead for the church. This Feast of Trumpets carries the meaning of the trumpets of God as ministers of the Lord Jesus proclaim the truth of His Word and warning of judgment to the world. This ministry voice of Jesus will be manifested in and through the body of Christ as the Trumpet is blown in Zion. The voice is the voice of the Almighty, the voice of One, the voice of many waters as the voice of thunder, the voice of the testimony of Jesus Christ as the witness of Jesus leading the body of Christ unto the day of the Lord Jesus, the Day of Atonement. The Day of Atonement will be the day that everything that Jesus paid for on the cross of Calvary will be manifested in the earth; that is, bringing in everlasting righteousness and making and end to sin, for there will be a highway of holiness and no unclean thing shall err therein. The end will be the destruction of the wicked with the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. The Day of Atonement will bring us to the final seventh Feast of the LORD Jesus, the Feast of Feasts; the Feast of Tabernacles. In this Feast, the consummation of all things in the Work of God in the earth, when God tabernacles with us and we with God; face to face.

Books can be written on the above, but the focus will be on the number 7, for the Feast of Tabernacles is also called the Feasts of Sevens (7's), the Feast of Ingathering, the Feast of Consummation, the Feast of Perfection. the Feast of Glory. To the Jew, this is the Feast of Feasts...the greatest and most joyful of all the Feasts of the LORD.

The sacrifices help us to understand the work of God in this Feast or timetable of God with us. "7" is the dominate number as it is “completion and consummation” or “perfection”. Tabernacles had more offerings than any other Feast of the Lord. On each of the seven days, the offerings were two rams and fourteen lambs, twice that of Passover. On the first day Tabernacles, 13 bullocks were offered, the second day 12 bullocks, the third day 11 bullocks, the fourth day 10 bullocks, the fifth day 9 bullocks, the sixth day 8 bullocks, the seventh day 7 bullocks. On the eighth day there was only one bullock offered, for after that time, it will be seen, Jesus Only.

Let's do a table/diagram of the sacrificial offerings to the Lord





13 bulls

2 rams

14 lambs

1 goat




12 bulls

7 bulls

70 bullocks

14 rams

98 lambs

7 goats

189 offerings



70 \ 7 = 10


14 \ 7 = 2

98 \ 7 = 14

7 \ 7 = 1

189 \ 7 = 27


All of the offerings are divisible by 7 as the common denominator due to the fact that the work is for perfection and consummation.

In addition to the above there were meat (meal) offerings of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals unto every bullock of the thirteen bullocks (totaling 210), two tenth deals to each ram of the two rams (totaling 28), and a several tenth deal to each lamb of the fourteen lambs (totaling 98) for a grand total of 336 which is also divisible by 7 as the common denominator.

Passover lasted for seven (7) days. Pentecost was 7 weeks after Passover, Tabernacles was the 7th Feast in the 7th month lasting 7 days.

The 70 bullocks offered typified one bullock for each nation, for the table of nations in Genesis 10 lists 70 nations upon the earth. Therefore each nation has the blood sacrifice of a bullock, for each nation shall be consecrated unto the Lord Jesus, for all shall serve Him, from the least to the greatest. Seven (7) is the dominant number, seven, being the common denominator in the work of the cross taking its full effect in the earth.

Each Feast of the Lord had sacrificial blood offerings accompanied with meat (meal) offerings teaching us that it is only through the cross of Jesus Christ and Him crucified that we have these joyful seasons in the Lord.

The newest believer in Jesus takes part of this joy unspeakable and full of glory in his/her season of Passover by the sacrificial blood of the Lamb, making it possible for us to be at one with Him. They go on to the season of Pentecost being filled with the Holy Ghost. The power of Pentecost was due to the blood that Jesus shed on Calvary which was alluded to in the Feast of Pentecost. The church’s next season is Tabernacles.


What kind of power and glory will be in Tabernacles?

Whatever is ahead for the body of Christ in power and glory is solely due to the blood sacrifice of Jesus on Calvary. The blood that Jesus shed on Calvary has paid in full for this complete and fullness of glory to be manifested in and through the believer in coming unto perfection. For more blood was sacrificed in Tabernacles than all the other Feasts combined!


There will be major changes in entering into the kingdom of God upon the earth, for the kingdom of God will come into the kingdom of heaven. Then cometh the end when the Son of God will deliver up the kingdom to God that he may be all, through all, and in us all. God will tabernacle face to face with His people in the Feast of Tabernacles, for it will be Jehovah-Shammeh; the Lord is there or present. This is the presence of God in and with the believer to those who are the New Jerusalem.


Jesus said that his Father worketh hitherto, and he works. For when Adam sinned God went back to work redeeming mankind. The work of God in redemption will not continue forever, for it will be finished and completed on day with the harvest being gathered and taken to be with God. The work will finish with a full seven, "7", and the eternal rest will be entered into by the people of God as sons and daughters of God. Someone will state that we are already there as sons and daughters. The church has not come to be spotless and without wrinkle, making herself ready in perfection and full maturity in order to be presented to the Lord Jesus without blemish. For is doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know this, that when he appears, we shall be as he is.

The appearing of Jesus is the Second Advent. The coming of Jesus however speaks of the revelation of Jesus in and through his saints before his appearing. Jesus came in Pentecost to His body by giving us of His Spirit, for the Lord is that Spirit. And Jesus will come again in the approaching season of Tabernacles just as he did in Pentecost. The major difference is that He will reveal Himself in the church in greater glory than before, for the latter house will be greater than the former. This season of Tabernacles is before he appears, for the church must come unto perfection, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Jesus Christ, unto a perfect man. This will be The ministry voice of Jesus revealing His word and will in the earth will be confirmed with great power and glory; both with judgment miracles as Moses, kingdom miracles as with Elijah, and redemption miracles that He worked Himself in the days of His flesh. The church will come into the unity of the faith. The church has never had perfect unity coming unto perfection. Not even Paul stated that he was already perfect or that he had already attained perfection (7), but that he was reaching forth to those things that were before, forgetting those things which were behind, pressing onward toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ.

In comparing the work of God in the consummation of all things, consecrating all things back to God in the restitution of all things being gathered together into one, that is, unto Jesus, Azusa Street will not be a drop in the bucket, so to speak. As a matter of fact, the book of Acts in Pentecost will pale in glory as compared to the glory that is to be revealed in the season of Tabernacles. There have been several moves of the Spirit of God, but nothing like the "new thing' that God will do, though a man will not believe it. For the people that do know their God will be strong and do exploits at the very time that the anti-christ is doing great things. In other words, the devil is come down to you having great wrath knowing that he hath but a short time. And at the very same time, there is a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars upon her head. This is the church coming into the perfect government of God. She will pain to be delivered and will bring forth a man child. This glory of the church being one with God will be a full witness and testimony of Jesus doing the greater works as spoken by Jesus. The church as the sons of oil spoken of in Zechariah 4 will be as the perfect witness and testimony of Jesus. Just as Joshua and Caleb were a type of the two witnesses that believed a good report and entered into the promised land, so the church will believe the good news and enter into the promised land, the New Jerusalem, the continuing city who builder and maker is God and not man.


The work seems impossible in the flesh as we see evil men and seducers waxing worse and worse. For at the time of the greatest trouble that the nations have ever known, God will rise and do a work...a strange bring to pass his act, his strange act. Don't mock at it lest the bands of your heart be made strong and hardened, for God has decreed consumption upon the whole earth. O earth, earth, earth, hear ye the word of the Lord. But the good news is that the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness, for when God's judgments are in the land, men will learn righteousness.

There were only two (2) witnesses that had a good report; therefore, they were the only ones out of the church in the wilderness that were able to enter into the land of promise. Not even Moses himself was able to enter in because of the waters of Meribah, because it was there the people of God strove and Moses smote the Rock twice rather than speaking to it. Because of this, he was not able to go over into the Promised Land, but could only see it. The people of God came out of Egypt by a man; that is, Moses meaning “drawn out of the water”. Under the leadership of Moses they had came out of Egypt being saved by the Paschal lamb being slain and the blood applied to the door posts and lintel. God had Passed Over their houses. The word for Passover is not “ghabar” meaning “to pass or leap over in order to avoid”, but is “Pesah” meaning “to cover in the shadow of His wings, to protect and guard against”. In other words, God stood guard at each door that was covered with the blood of the paschal lamb in order to protect and guard against the angel of death. Nothing touched the people of God. The same is true today for those covered by the blood of Jesus, for the devil touches them not.

Moses led those 3 days journey to the Red (Reed Sea) so that crossing over, none would return back to Egypt and in so doing, destroyed the Egyptians. This is the waters of separation which speak of baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. Egypt was rolled off and the body of sin destroyed by water baptism, being raised to the newness of life. There is a great study of the places that God led the children of Israel through the wilderness, each place trying them, getting them ready for the Promised Land in order to see if they loved the Lord God with all their heart, soul, and mind and keep the commandments of God. Fifty days later, Moses led them to Mt. Sinai where they received the law written upon stone; their Pentecost. Pentecost speaks of being baptized with the Holy Ghost with the law of God written in our hearts in tables of flesh, each believer now having a specific will of God that he/she must do according to God's will and good pleasure, as members in particular of His body.

Seven (7) months after coming out of Egypt, in the season of Tabernacles, they came to “Kadesh-Barnea”, the place where they would go from to spy out the land, then go over to posses it. It is here at Kadesh-Barnea that the church is currently, the place of decision, at the crossing over place. It is at Kadesh-Barnea that we act with faith as did Joshua and Caleb and believe that we will take the kingdom of God as promised by God, or we believe an evil report, that we are not able to take it. We as the body of Christ must believe the report of the promised possession of entering into a city whose builder and maker is God, coming unto perfection, and entering into this continuing city which Abraham and the church fathers believed, but never received the promised. It is so vital that they without us should not be made perfect.


God will have a people that believe him to the saving of their souls in reaching this state of glory unto a perfect man, unto a full 7, entering into the eternal rest that remains to the people of God. Kadesh-Barnea was in the season of Tabernacles. We can see some fruits of the land when we spy it out. There are the grapes of Eschol that are so heavy that is takes 2 men to carry it for the fruit will be great. It flows with the Spirit of God so heavy with milk and honey which speaks of righteousness. No one has seen or heard of anything like this before in the church, even though she has seen some great victories, but the war in about to consummate in the battle of the ages with Jesus Christ as the Victor. Unfortunately, there will be only a remnant of the church's seed that keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ that will be able to enter in. The others in this present church age will not enter in because of unbelief. The place we are currently located at is Kadesh-Barnea, the season is Tabernacles. Kadesh-Barnea means the "Sanctuary or Church of a disobedient son". One must stand as Joshua and Caleb in believing against the mainstream doubts of those that are at ease in Zion. This requires faith. But when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith upon the earth? Yes, you will have faith, for there has never been a generation, a seed, a man that has partaken of all seven (7) Feasts of the LORD Jesus, coming unto perfection. You and I could be this very generation in which all things are fulfilled unto the day of the Lord Jesus.

The children of Israel was led by Moses into the season of Tabernacles, the same has also come upon the church in this season of Tabernacles. We must believe the promise in this season if we as the church are going to inherit this city of God, the holy Jerusalem in glory, so we also have been led to the same place in Tabernacles. We have gone out of Egypt by the blood of the Lamb, have been baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, and have had our Pentecostal experience with the Holy Ghost writing upon our hearts his law of liberty. We are now facing and have moved to Kadesh-Barnea in this season of Tabernacles, where we must go over to possess the land of promise. We will see a change in the ministry as to the glory that will manifest and the charity that will abound in revealing Jesus to the world. The Holy Ghost will move and led us unto a greater glory. It is no longer a single man ministry of pastorates only as the dominant and almost solitary office of God in the body of Christ, but a five fold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers working as ensamples in the priesthood of the believers. For the corporate body will stand up a great army manifesting Jesus to the world as the perfect man having the testimony of Jesus Christ and keeping the commandments of God. Moses led the church in the wilderness. Joshua and Caleb were two witnesses that believed God in the season of Tabernacles, just as we have to believe God today in order to receive the promise. It was said that Caleb had a different spirit. He had a believing spirit instead of unbelief. Joshua and Caleb went against the grain of complacency and ease with the present state of affairs.


It is important to note that the glory of God moved from the threshold of the house, the church to over the cherubim speaking of the move of God being dynamic and not static or stagnant. The voice of God was declared by the wings of the cherubim of glory in this realm and their voice was heard to the outer sanctuary. The voice of speech, the voice of One, the voice of the Almighty God will be heard through these ministers of God with the face of a lion (boldness), man (humility), ox (servant), and eagle (great sight and speed in carrying the Word of God), God giving the people the understanding of the Book in the season of Tabernacles into all the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.

God always bears witness with two (2), for God send out the ministry two by two for a witness. Two is the number of witness. Therefore there were two that witnessed and gave a good report as Joshua and Caleb, as the two witnesses in the Revelation of Jesus Christ. When we see the meaning of the two witnesses in the season of Tabernacles while in the wilderness journey, “Joshua” being “Yeshua” or “Jesus” and the other is “Caleb”, a dog. It is “Jesus” only that will bring us over Jordan into the Promised Land, into this city of promise. There will be a change in the ministry of God. The apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers will believe the good report being men of faith. Joshua will not personally carry the ark, for God has chosen the priesthood to carry the Ark of the Covenant over with the people of God standing 2000 cubits back. We are to sanctify ourselves and meditate upon the Word day and night; for this is the way that you and I have not been heretofore. It is only after the priesthood of Jesus lifts up the Ark of the Covenant does the waters of Jordan which is overflowing its banks at this time open and the people of God go over dry-shod possessing the kingdom of God in the earth.

Today that we are living in now is in this season of Tabernacles, the Feast of 7's, the Feast of Glory, The Feast of Consummation, when we are to receive the promises by faith. The people of God will be fire and the Holy One over us as a flame, and the wicked shall be ashes in under the righteous feet. The result being the body of Christ will proclaim Jesus to the world in the testimony of Jesus, taking the kingdoms of the world; the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. This is the seven (7) of consummation. Some will believe...some will not. Some will say that revival has already happened and there is no further glory for the body of Christ, the church. One word of caution; this is not revival as we know it. As a matter of fact, this is not revival at all. This is the new thing that God will work in the earth for His glory in proclaiming Jesus to the world, once and for all. This glory is a realm of glory that we as the church have not experienced before in any other season of God in the past. This is the remnant of her seed being caught up to God and to his throne; throne power with God.

Just as there were two witnesses of Joshua and Caleb, there will be two witnesses of today...the two olive branches...the two cherubim of glory...the two sons of oil as the two anointed ones that stand on the either side of God...that do empty out of themselves the golden oil. The church here in glory is caught up to God and to His throne fulfilling Jesus' week or a perfect 7.

Thus, the 7 of Tabernacles is this great Feast of Feasts that is here presently for the church to believe, getting prepared for the move of God. Pentecost started two thousand years ago on the day of Pentecost, being fully brought in. There will be a greater glory with the rain of the former which is Pentecost along with the latter which is Tabernacles being realized in the last day work of God in revealing Jesus to the world and the kingdom of God being set up in the earth. The church will go on unto perfection, unto the image of Jesus to the fullest, unto a perfect man in the earth. That is the reason here at Dennis Beard Ministries, Inc. we call the ones that believe the Word "Tabernaclists" and put out a newsletter with that title. We believe that God is preparing his body now for this work of God.


Another important note; in the Feasts of Tabernacles, the people of God remember and commemorate the wanderings in the wilderness, remembering the pioneers of Pentecost, not forgetting those of our heritage, but giving honor to those that have trodden the wilderness journey in this world to bring us to the place that we are today. Do we stop here, or go on unto perfection?


let us go on unto perfection, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Jesus Christ
