David's Tent Alabama exists to Declare the Exceedingly Great Worth of JESUS CHRIST from the Heart of Our State through Day & Night Worship!
There once was a young man so fascinated by the relentless pursuit, inexhaustible grace, tender mercy and reckless love of our Heavenly Father that even God, Himself, identified this young man, David, as a man after His own heart! When David was anointed King of Israel, the nation was in a spiritual crisis, deeply divided, with righteous camps on both sides and enemies all around; but it was not the pressing issues of the moment that moved David’s heart, rather, it was his obsession with the God of all creation.
According to Psalm 27:4, David had only one desire and that was to dwell in the presence of the Lord all the days of his life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him with all of his heart, soul, mind and strength. To this end, David established a tent of worship just outside of the palace walls in the capitol city of Jerusalem and personally employed thousands of musicians and singers to minister to the Lord through song, day and night, for 33 years.
In David’s Tent, there was no longer a veil separating the people from the presence of God, everyone had access to Him. It was the centerpiece of life in Israel as the nation gathered regularly for corporate worship. David's Tent was also a foreshadowing of the way that our relationship with God would be reconciled through intimacy with Jesus. It was precisely this key of David, the key of intimacy, that unlocked the door to Israel’s golden years, their most prosperous time in history.
Much like in David’s day, our nation is severely broken, desperately in need of a reformation. Even states like Alabama are slipping, growing increasingly complacent and compromised. However, the heart of David is beginning to surface once again in this generation as the clanging cymbals of the 24-hour news cycle give way to the deepest groanings of the human soul to delight itself in the Lord; because, there’s no greater name that can be named in the heavens or on the earth than the name of Jesus, the One who was, and is, and is to come, and there’s no greater purpose in life than to love Him wholeheartedly and to worship Him forever!
According to Amos 9:11 and Acts 15:16, the Lord is going to restore David’s Tent, He is going to repair its damages and rebuild it as in the days of old so that all of mankind may seek Him, and like the old hymn says, we will turn our eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace. To this end, David’s Tent Alabama exists to Declare the Exceedingly Great Worth of JESUS CHRIST from the Heart of Our State through Day & Night Worship!
As the Lord is opening doors for David's Tent to be raised up in cities all across our great state for 50-150 hour corporate gatherings of nonstop worship, webs of authentic relationships are being woven together within every stream of the Body of Christ, and a foundation is being laid for a permanent worship tent to be raised up in our capitol city of Montgomery just like it was in Jerusalem from which there will be a testimony established that the Church in an entire state has come together to bring an offering of worship before the Lord for all the world to see and thus to know that He is God and that He is good!
One thing I have desired of the Lord; that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. Psalm 27:4
