They all fall down: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Several months ago, a Baptist friend asked me, why do all these people fall down on TV, when the “Faith Healers” pray for them? 

He insisted that it didn’t happen in the Bible.

Matthew 2:11
fell down, and worshipped him:
Mark 5:33
fell down before him,
Mark 3:11
fell down before him,
Luke 5:8
he fell down at Jesus’ knees,
Luke 8:28
fell down before him,
Luke 8:41
fell down at Jesus’ feet,
John 11:32
she fell down at his feet,
Luke 17:16
fell down on his face at his feet,
Revelation 5:14
the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped
Revelation 22:8
I fell down to worship

Now, if I had given my friend these scripure verses, he would reply:

Yes, but they were all in the presence of Jesus.”

I would say:  “My point exactly.”

  (“Faith Healers” are Holy Spirit Dispensers).

These “Faith Healers” have paid the price to work in His Power and Presence.  We need to long to be in the presence of Jesus.  We need to learn to Worship, Work and Walk in His Power.

If you look up the word “worship”, in the Strongs Concordance, you might be surprised, to find, it means, to fall down, or bow down in reverence.

Are our Sunday Services really Worship Services?

We hear the Word, sing a few Hymns, but very rarely experience the full blown presence of Jesus.  (Multitudes found Him, can we?)

I know, in your church there is always a noticeable presence of God. 

(Good, you need read no more).

I wonder, seriously, have the rest of us, really experienced the presence of the Great “I AM“, since our salvation experience?

He is the Great “I AM.”  From the first mention of His Name, people fell down to Worship.

Genesis 17:1-3
King James Version (KJV)
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,”

He fell on his face, his name was changed, he was circumcised.  He had met Jesus.

We recieved a new name, in heaven, a circumcision of our hearts, and most probably fell down and worshiped at meeting “The Great I AM, JESUS.”

Moses, had to take off his shoes, as he was on Holy Ground:  (Exodus 3)
“And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.” 

Jesus, when arrested, answered “I AM” and they fell down before Him.

In the time of the dedication of Solomons Temple, God made His presence known.

1 Kings: 8. 10,11
And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD,  So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD.”

To me this is what we should be aiming for, to experience the presence, power and the glory of the Lord.

How do we coax Gods Power, His healing, His miraculous signs and wonders, His Glory into our midst?

It isn’t easy.

We look at the Giants of the Faith as being above us in a place and time, impossible for us to attain.

In reality, they are a road map, written so that whosoever will, can find that place of Faith.

In that one verse from 1 Kings we see a

key.  Can we learn to use it?  Do you see what it is?

Lord, help us to seek and find Your face.  That we might truly know You and the Power of Your Resurrection. 

That we be made into Your image.  Worthy to be trusted and used by Your Spirit.  That signs and wonders will follow.   Amen
