Celebration of Tabernacles Is Rising To The Forefront
From: Ed Tarkowski
In material released from the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, it is becoming obvious that celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles is taking a prominent place in the global “move of God”, falsely named! 5 Tentative Schedule of Events’ for 1995. Christians must be wary of celebrating events tied to Tabernacles especially because the idea of such celebrations were laid in the works of Latter Rain’s George Warnock in the 1950s, and this teaching has penetrated the apostate "move of God", the spurious revival through the Laughing Phenomena. (THE MERGER OF NEW AGE AND “CHRISTIANITY”).
CBN Conference with ICEJ holding the conference. This was advertised in Charisma as a conference on the Feast of Tabernacles. Pat Robertson supports the laughing phenomena and the impregnation of the Church through Latter Rain teaching (Joel’s Army). July 5: End-Time Handmaidens Convention: this is the group that prophesied that “prophetically, the child Isaac is being released into the nations as the new wine is being passed.” (For those who did not read last Despatch, Vol.7:2, the child Isaac with the mother Sarah, has been shown to be a false representation, of the ancient paganistic, Isis and Osirus.)

From promotional material published by ICEJ, Washington State Branch:
“The Christian Embassy Fellowship is a body of people from different religious persuasions united together through their love and interest for Israel and the Jewish people. “Together with Rev. [Harold L.] Wood as their spiritual leader, they represent the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem in the State of Washington ... “To assist projects in Israel *in preparation for* the coming of Messiah and *his expected reign* from Jerusalem” (*in capitals - for Tarkowski’s emphasis added).
Is one of these “projects” the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles?
How does one prepare for the coming of Messiah and His expected reign?
It is God who is preparing for it, and when He draws the nations to Meggiddo,
we shall know His preparation for the Messiah’s reign is near].
Charisma - April 1995.
In celebration of the 3,000th anniversary of Jerusalem, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is sponsoring a series of events designed to draw attention to the Old City’s rich biblical history.
Although Jerusalem was founded more than 3,000 years ago, the year 1004 B.C. was chosen to date the anniversary because researchers and archaeologists believe that was the year King David made Jerusalem the capital of his Old Testament kingdom.
The anniversary will officially begin with the Jewish New Year in September and will continue through the end of 1996 to encompass both the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars.
The first event, a Christian celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles, is scheduled Oct. 8-16. More than 4,000 Christians from nearly 100 countries are expected to join in the weeklong biblical feast....
The Christian Zionist Congress, an annual event featuring Bible teaching and discussions about Israel, will focus this year on the restoration of Israel and the threats posed by militant elements of the Islamic faith....
The final event is the 1996 Christian celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles, following a similar format as the 1995 feast. The theme for the 1996 feast, to be held Sept. 27 - Oct. ??Oct. 1996 is “The Holy City: The New Jerusalem,” a reference to Revelation 21:2.
The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is not an official government embassy representing a country, but a legally incorporated association in Israel. Its purpose is to represent Christians who recognize the scriptural significance of Israel’s restoration and who “share the Lord’s concern for the Jewish people” its organizers say....
