King David had a revelation of a room in heaven where the throne of God is at the center, surrounded by living creatures and 24 elders who never stop singing, declaring His worth and crying out in intercession. David desired to build a room on earth as it is in heaven. David spent 33 years perfecting this ministry of 24/7 worship and prayer in a tent where he placed the ark of God’s presence at the center, surrounded it with 4,288 singers and musicians led by 24 elders of families who never stopped singing, praying and declaring the beauty of the Lord.
All that David did was under the direction of the Spirit of the Lord, as the Spirit laid his hand upon David to make him understand. This was the tabernacle of David. David then gave all the plans for the tabernacle to his son, Solomon. Those plans were for the courts of the house of the Lord; the divisions of the priests, singers and the Levites; and all the work and service of the house of the Lord as it continued night and day. This plan was a blueprint from heaven, and David commanded Solomon to build according to the blueprint.
“Then David gave to Solomon his son the building plans for the vestibule of the temple … and the plans, all of which were given to him by the Spirit, for the courts of the house of the Lord … for the divisions of the priests and the Levites for all the work of the service of the house of the Lord … ‘All this,’ said David, ‘the Lord made me understand in writing by His hand upon me, all the works of this pattern'” (1 Chron. 28:11a, 12a,13a,19).
This becomes what is known as the Davidic order of worship. David’s order of worship was about the convergence of heaven and earth and a resting place for God’s manifest glory. There were seven revivals in the Old Testament, starting with King David’s. Every revival in Israel from that point forward was tied to the restoration of David’s order of worship, the tabernacle of David.
