“And Moses said, This is the thing which the Lord commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the Lord shall appear unto you.”
Are we doing the thing which the Lord commanded that we should do?
We like to think we are.
Are we seeing the glory of the Lord? Would we recognize it, if it was here?
1 Kings 8:10b, 11
“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.”
I am pretty sure we are not seeing this in our church services today. Why not?
We really are not doing or living the full thing the Lord commanded.
The Lord is a Spirit, we have His Spirit, He resides within us, but haven’t spent time reading the instuction manual, learning how to Walk with Him.
“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.”
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
“For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.”
To many of us, these scriptures are just words. We may know them, quote them, believe them, and not understand how to impliment them.
Music is one of the easiest ways to enter His presence to experience His glory.
“Now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him.”
Many think it is foolish to sing 11 words 7 times as they call some forms of Worship.
They don’t understand the point, will not submit themselves and let go.
We need to reach out, let our spirits connect to the Holy Spirit. This can happen in seconds or take 20 minutes, depending on the condition of our hearts.
(Are we open, receptive, willing to allow God entrance, to gain control of our natural man)?
We allow Him into our hearts, we are saved, set free from the bondage of sin and shame. Yet, we are afraid of the next step.
We fail to allow Him to transform our mind, to use our voice to pray His will.
We love Romans 8:28, but fear the verses that lead us to it, ;26-27.
“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
I am a broken record. I cannot apologise. We all need to be closer to Him. The world needs to see signs and wonders.
We need to become WORKERS OF MIRACLES, WE MUST HAVE THE GIFT OF HEALINGS, THE GIFT OF FAITH.
Then will Jesus be lifted up, then He will draw all men unto Himself.
Learn to Praise, allow the Lord into your heart and mind, you will experience true Worship, the Glory of the Lord will surround you.
Allow the Lord to teach you to pray in tongues, to release yourself into His control, to find His perfect will.
THEN ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD.
Quit you like men, let the Lord have control.
I hear often, we are not all workers of miracles.
Really, that is not what the Lord said in John 14, and what He sent us to do. Have you asked Him?
Lord, release Your Spirit on Your Church today, I pray. Amen
