THE HEAVENLY FATHER’S “TENT”

THE HEAVENLY FATHER’S “TENT

Of all the Scriptures concering the talit, one of the most awesome is a description of the Heavenly Father’s talit. Tehillim (Psalms) 104: 12 says: “Bless Yahweh, O my being ! O Yahweh, my Elohim, You have been very great; You have put on excellency and splendor, covering Yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a curtain. Thus, our Creator created His talit out of the elements of light and the heavens so that all creation is kept “under His protective wings”.

Revelation 7:1415 also explains: “These are those coming out of great distress, having washed their robes (talit) and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Because of this they are before the throne of Elohim (the Mighty One), and serve Him day and night in His Dwelling Place. And He who sits on the throne shall spread His tent (talit) over them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more. The first part of this passage has long been misunderstood by the Gentile community. In the fourteenth verse we read: “These are those coming out of great distress, having washed their robes (talit) and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. The average Protestant or Catholic, who sees fellow church members wearing robes in the choir each Sunday, naturally assumes that we will all be wearing white choir robes in Heaven. But the Hebrew, who lived at the time of the writing of the book of Revelation, who wore a full length prayer shawl or a “talit katan” (small talit) under his clothing, would interpret the word “robes” to mean “talit”. Simply stated, our heavenly talit will no longer have stripes to remind us of our sin, but they will be pure white as the garment of a forgiven peopleThe rest of the above quoted passage (verse fifteen) also refers dramatically to the talit. However, this reference is not to our talit, but the talit of the Heavenly Father.

Yahoshua (Jsus) once wept because Jerusalem, the city which He loved, refused to be gathered under his talit, [Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23:37]. Yahoshua said: “I and my Father are “echad” (one, or unified). [Yohanan (John) 10:30] Therefore, it is no surprise that our Heavenly Father also desires to gather His “called out ones” under His talit ( His “tent”), there to dwell throughout all of eternity. What a blessed promise
