There is no way to explain or express the absolute joy of ministering in a place where
the presence of the Holy Spirit is allowed full access and expression among those
who are attending.
Less than a week ago I had the delight and honor to be in such a place.
Mind you, I have been there before and have built loving relationships with
many in this location.
A NEW CAST OF COLOR, A FRESH EXPRESSION
As we see the Lord changing the canvas and broadening the expression of His
kingdom, things have begun to take on a new cast of color, a fresh expression,
a purity that only those who have done the things that He has requested in their
personal lives understand.
A TRUE DAVID’S HEART IN WORSHIP
In this place where I recently visited, there is what I would call the expression of a
true David’s heart in worship. Every individual involved in creating an atmosphere
for the presence of God to inhabit was fully engaged in honoring and bringing joy to
the heart of the Father. Privately and Personally, Corporately and Individually.
David and the whole house were celebrating with all their might before the LORD,
with songs and with harps, lyres, tambourines, sistrums and cymbals.
2 Samuel 6:5
There was no flashy presentation, no low cut blouses, no “grooviness” or need to
ramp up the crowd. Oh no! The hearts were ready for full personal involvement with
honoring and adoring the “One”.
Yes. There had probably been untold hours of rehearsing and practicing each chord,
each note, each song. But it had been done with joy, and deep reverence for the
responsibility each held in bringing the body into a place of being escorted into the
presence of the King of glory.
So often, it is a let down to see the large performance and the flashiness of
attempting to impress and incite people to wake up and worship. And I mean
literally attempting to get people to “themselves” step into a place of deep
personal relationship with the Master.
Some may think that the location of where I was might not be as nearly impressive
and highly tailored as one might assume, in order to attract and draw individuals into
such a glorious and mighty experience. But you see, that was the beauty of this
whole gathering. It was Elegant Simplicity.
The adornment was the humility and reverence of the Father, Son and Spirit.
As the Lord moved in with His Presence and Plan, little children were spontaneously
filled with the spirit and spoke out unafraid in their prayer language from heaven
. Young adults and teens were boldly risking out loud, calling on God to reveal
himself to them personally, and He did. Words of Knowledge and words of
Wisdom flowed with clarity and honor, with loving warnings and also with
validation and confirmation. Many openly repented of shutting out the voice of
God, and asked again for “fresh ears to hear.”
The young couples attending were drawn into a deeper commitment to mentor
young sheep in the flock they are a part of, and many of these couples asked
the Father to deepen their commitment to prayer with each other.
Prodigals came to an additional service that was unplanned and spontaneous.
And again, Father met them face to face, After all, He had been waiting,
patiently on the road, watching for their return.
A GENTLE AND UNFETTERED “LIFTING OF THE SAILS”
I have seen in the past few weeks, a gentle and unfettered “lifting of the sails”
in many people’s lives that have been struggling, suffering and agonizing.
It is as if Father has said to them (and maybe you too!).”Lift up your sails again.
Tattered or not, lift them!!
Look again for the stirring of My winds and My Holy Spirit! You cannot attempt to
capture or direct this wind or you will utterly be left stalled out. Throw out the oars
of control into the waters and let Me blow you into a fresh direction.
A course yet uncharted by you or others.”
“The wind blows wherever it pleases.
You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from
or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."
FRESH AND PASSIONATE SONGS OF WORSHIP BLOSSOMING
I have heard fresh and passionate songs of worship blossoming from many
worship servants lately. These have gorgeous and haunting melodies and words
that break stony hearts and bring repentance to those caught up in
driven performance. These melodies are the songs of the Kingdom. Rich, warm,
tasty to the soul, and food to the spirit.
THE “HARP” OF DAVID IS SOOTHING AND SINGING AGAIN IN THE EARTH.
Although the Saul spirit is still alive and well, and attempts to shame, discredit,
and mock, it shall not prevail. The Lord has called forth His Pure hearted ones from
every tribe, every tongue and nation, every age and generation. The sound is
one of Purity, Simplicity, Perseverance and honor among saints.
But an evil spirit (allowed by the Lord, due to Saul’s pride) came upon Saul as he
was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand.
While David was playing the harp.
1 Samuel 19:9
DO YOU HEAR IT TOO? DO YOU WANT THIS DIVINE BLISS?
There is a lighthouse in the wilderness in the southern part of Texas called
Markham Texas. Coffee is always ready, worship is continuously flowing,
discipleship is constant, and mentors are plentiful.
From Infants to Grandparents there was a wonderful mixture of life, organized chaos,
and abundant sharing. It was a joy, a gift, a treasure, to minister among these dear
ones all of last week.
Perhaps you too might want to visit and bask in this place of love a day or two?
If so… here is an email address to contact them.
NO AGENDAS ALLOWED
And by the way…
… They have excellent wolves in sheep’s clothing “Spotters” or “Gatekeepers”.
No agendas allowed when you enter the doors. Only hungry and humble hearts
last in this place of God’s Oasis.. This Glorious Wilderness Place.
"Watch out for false prophets
. They come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
If you would like to know where these might be, please feel free to email,
and perhaps one is nearby where you live
