Worship and Prayer Is the battle cry of our churches.
As warriors He is calling us globally to Move in worship and prayer.
Worship the Lord always.
Not as a duty but as a desire to show worth.
Obey God, especially if anything appears to thwart us.
Listen to the Holy Spirit.
Be not stopped. He will not be quenched or quelled.
Praise and worship through all barriers.
If silence is enforced from our mouths continue to worship in our hearts by using our ears, hearts and minds but songs of praise and worship must connect us always.
Amplify the sound of worship out through our doors and blazon it on our towers.
We are his Church .
Bring heaven’s kingdom to earth and lift us on earth to be with Him in heaven.
God looks into our heart.
Opens our hearts.
He meets with us there.
Give praise unconditionally focusing only on the One we worship.
Praise and worship the Lord always.
Let it be our cornerstone.
Don’t exalt the Lord for profit or return.
Be not in a place of conditional where there is an exchange of favour eg if I worship you you will answer my needs or prayers.
He desires to rescue people out of an eternity of Hell into the eternity of His kingdom.
He is the only one who can win the victory.
It will be a keeping up with His move which brings His glory freshly back to the world.
The result of worship will be the outcome of the whole earth being full of His Glory at the sound of these voices.
The revelation in Isaiah 6 of the Angels worshipping and praising the Lord.
Later verses of the sense of the heaven trembling as He moves, door posts and thresholds of heaven shaking.
The sense of not feeling consecrated enough and our cry of ‘woe is me’ if we feel unclean or unprepared as we see the King.
Some of us may already be feeling stripped and undone as God moves us in our lives in new ways.
We may already feel an eagerness on our lips to cry out. ‘Here I am send me.’
Jesus went into the temple and overturned the tables of those not there to worship in His lifetime.
Maybe it has got back to the need in the world to upturn commercial entities and what is not authentic and get back to being the humble servants He has called us to be as we seek His face in our worshipping.
God is calling the church to declare publicly and boldly.
We don’t worship and praise to receive, it is not contractable for reward.
It is in Our humility that there will be a release of Gods true nature and character and salvation.
God’s Glory will be the revelation in the darkness to the world. His tangible presence released on earth.
The illustration depicts us as being the body of church. Arms raised in praise, knees bent in prayer and Collectively worship Coming from our mouths and doors. To be seen and heard as the united body who declare God to the world as He reveals Himself.
Three scriptures that come to mind:
“ I had a vision of the Lord. He was on his throne high above, and his robe filled the temple. Flaming creatures with six wings each were flying over him. They covered their faces with two of their wings and their bodies with two more. They used the other two wings for flying, as they shouted, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord All-Powerful! The earth is filled with your glory.””Isaiah 6:1-3 CEV
“As they shouted, the doorposts of the temple shook, and the temple was filled with smoke. Then I cried out, “I’m doomed! Everything I say is sinful, and so are the words of everyone around me. Yet I have seen the King, the Lord All-Powerful.” One of the flaming creatures flew over to me with a burning coal that it had taken from the altar with a pair of metal tongs. It touched my lips with the hot coal and said, “This has touched your lips. Your sins are forgiven, and you are no longer guilty.””Isaiah 6:4-7 CEV
“After this, I heard the Lord ask, “Is there anyone I can send? Will someone speak for us?” “I’ll go,” I answered. “Send me!””Isaiah 6:8 CEV
Awake my soul sing His praise. Hillsong
