STATEMENT OF FAITH
Tabernacle of David, formerly known as Siloam Assembly of God, was pioneered by Pastor David Swan in October 1976. In the first decade of the churchs growth, eight other outreaches were planted and numerous full-time workers were raised up.
In the year 1987 the church experienced a powerful Divine visitation after a season of sustained prayer. During this visitation, a new anointing and a new name was given to the church by the Lord. The new name "Tabernacle of David" spelled the new ministry and destiny of the church.
1987 was a special spiritual milestone in my walk with the Lord. It was a year filled with divine visitations and outpourings of the Holy Spirit both upon my life and upon the church members. There were also periods of intensive prayer and seeking the Lord.
One night, I was awakened by a strong presence of God. Then I heard an audible voice speaking into my right ear, "Tabernacle of David! Tabernacle of David!" It was a voice of great clarity and unusual authority. When He spoke, the voice penetrated and reverberated within my whole being. For a moment, I dared not move. I felt the awesome presence of God. It was like a host of angels was in the room too. The whole atmosphere was charged with life. Still lying down, I turned my head to see this being that had spoken. But I did not see anyone. I knew that the Lord had given me the new name for the church.
When the Lord gave me
this name for the church, I knew that it held the key to the ministry and destiny of the
church. The Bible speaks of God restoring the Tabernacle of David in the last days (Acts
15:16). I believe that this also refers to the restoration of Davidic worship.
Gods vision for us is to teach, impart and restore Davidic worship to the body of Christ in this nation and also, in the nations of the world. In line with Gods vision, our desire and great passion is to raise up prophetic worshipping warriors.
and equipping the body of Christ
For this reason, God
has opened many doors for Pastor David Swan and Tabernacle of Davids prophetic
worship team to minister in conventions, both locally and overseas. Tabernacle of David
has hosted and will be hosting various events to impact, stir
up and challenge the bride of Christ to rise up in prayer, praise and worship, as
Gods great mighty end-time army!

BY APOSTLE JOHN ECKHARDT FOR DAVID SWAN (
The Lord says, Son, Ive put the revelation in your heart even concerning praise and worship and Ive given you even a revelation of My glory. And the Lord says, Son, Im going to cause the revelation that Ive placed inside of your belly even to be released into the four corners of the earth. And the Lord says youve been faithful even to carry this revelation. You've been faithful even to preach this revelation in the last years but the Lord says now get ready, for new doors are going to open to you in different parts of the world and many shall call and many shall say come and teach us and minister unto us and show us how to enter into the presence of God. And the Lord says, Son, Ive placed this revelation in your heart and Ive shaped your life and Ive shaped your ministry. The Lord says, Son, I call you a man of revelation. There have been many that Ive given this revelation to but the Lord says they were not as faithful to dispense it and to disperse it. But the Lord says, man, Ive caused this to be your first love. And the Lord says, now even as you go forth, Im giving you even a more apostolic thrust, even a more prophetic thrust, even to penetrate and to pioneer and to break through into tough places, even places that have not known true worship, even for generations, even those that have been bound by the spirits of religion and the spirits of tradition and the spirits of idolatry, for the enemy has tried to keep worship out of the nations. But the Lord says even as My word has gone forth that all nations shall see My glory, and truly the glory of the Lord shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. The Lord says, oh it shall come to pass even as faithful men rise up as stewards of the mysteries that Im releasing, even the mystery of worship and even the mystery of My glory and even the mystery of the Holy of Holies and even the revelation and the mysteries and the secrets that Im revealing in this hour shall be preached and they shall be taught in many different places across the globe says God. The Lord says, Man of God, continue to write. The Lord says Ive anointed you to write. Even as you write, your books and even your tapes shall go into places where youll never go and youll never see. But Ill cause your books and your tapes to go into even remote places, even into hidden places, even into secret places, they shall get the material and they shall begin to read, they shall begin to study and they shall begin to embrace and they shall begin to have a heart even to walk in that which they read in your book says God. The Lord says continue, Ill give you more books, Ill give you even the ability to disperse that revelation abroad.
And the Lord says in the days to come, I shall even draw worshippers together from the four corners of the earth. And the Lord says they shall come and they shall worship and all nations and tribes shall even worship together on the earth. Oh yes, it shall be seen in heaven but the Lord says there are coming days when even different tribes, different nations shall come together. For many men have tried to bring different groups together but the Lord says, oh worship is going to cause their hearts to unite and they are going to worship me and men shall begin to see even the nations working together. Even as in this place, the Tamil and the Chinese in different groups shall even come together and they shall worship together and this shall be a sign says God. It shall be a sign to the world of My glory and many shall hear it and many shall see it and many shall fear and many shall come and many shall fall down and many shall cry out saying, What must I do to be saved? And many shall repent of their hurts and of their unbelief and of their hardness of heart and of their hatred. And I shall begin to put My love in their hearts. The Lord says, get ready, for in the days to come, there shall be international conventions in different places that shall draw different cultures together but they shall all worship and My glory shall descend and My glory shall be released and I am going to prosper the works of your hands. And Im going to cause the finances to come. And Im going to give you the ability to do what Ive placed in your heart. The Lord says, get ready man of God, finances and wealth and money is your portion because youve been faithful. Im going to put the wealth, the money, the finances in your hands and that which you desire to do, youll have no lack but youll be able to do what Ive given you to do in the days to come says the Spirit of the living God.
