Peripheral Worship

They stood inside the entrance to their tent doors while Moses approached the tent of meeting outside of the camp. Their gaze was fixed upon the back of Moses as he made his way to that first tabernacle. He was going with one purpose and that was to meet with The Lord face to face. The tent of meeting had been pitched by Moses and it was a prelude of the tent to come. It was for everyone who desired to seek the Lord (Exodus 33:7).

The location of it required a person come closer to the Lord, leaving no distance between them.  I can see the cloud, the Presence of God descending upon the entrance of the tent after Moses entered while the people worship from their tent doors. It breaks my heart because I see people who were content in “knowing” about the Lord from a distance while someone else pursued His Presence on their behalf. We are not so different today.

Handpicked for a Purpose

 

stones

He only needed one stone. A small babbling brook held the ammunition desired by a shepherd boy for bringing down a mighty foe. He did not look like a warrior, but this shepherd had been prepared on another battlefield for a moment like this and he arrived to this battle right on time.

For forty days the air had been saturated with fear as taunts and idle threats loomed over the army of God, never settling in the valley between them, but finding a resting place in the hearts of men. As the appointed king cowered in his tent, the one anointed king prepared himself for a showdown.

The king had attempted to cloak this ruddy faced boy with his own armor, but to no avail. He would have no part in the victory as this young man carried the Lord upon him. He was a shepherd, an armor bearer and a king all at once. He was David, son of Jesse, a descendant from the tribe of Judah.

Fruit Bearers: Deal With the Foxes!

 

image

Get the foxes out of the vineyard“. It was a few weeks ago on a Tuesday morning that I heard these words as I drove to intercessory prayer. I was not supposed to be at intercessory prayer on this Tuesday; I was supposed to be at my workplace. Isn’t it funny how God works out divine timing when He needs something addressed? A few weeks prior I was asked to make a schedule change to accommodate a need at work. The day before prayer, the head intercessor asked if I could lead the prayer meeting.

So here I was driving along and seeking what was on the heart of the Lord for prayer and I heard Him say this to me, “Get the foxes out of the vineyard“. Song of Solomon 2:15 came to my spirit, “Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom.” The Lord began to show me a vine in our sanctuary in bloom and yielding fruit. I saw foxes among the vine, trying to eat the fruit and damage the vine.

Josiah’s Mandate-Raising Up Temple Cleansers And Idol Smashers

image

 

He was a man who did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. He was called a son of David despite his natural father’s abandonment of God. He set a standard before his people of true repentance and radical obedience by not merely giving God lip service but by waging war on the powers of darkness.

Centuries of pagan worship had infiltrated and stolen the affections of Israel and Judah, yet in one year this king dashed these idols to bits. King Josiah was a revolutionary revivalist and reformer of his time and his mandate is as relevant now as it was then. The word I am about to share with you has been burning on the inside of me for a long time. I remember when God began to show me revelation about King Josiah and what he did during his reign. I believe that this is a timely word for the hour that we are in as a nation.

The Lamp Of The Intimate Bride

image

Imagine a bride during the days of Jesus, adorned in her wedding attire and awaiting her groom. From her appearance it would seem that she has done everything expected in preparation for this moment. Her dress is without blemish, her purity is untainted, her wick is trimmed and her lamp is lit. As she hears the anticipated cry that the bridegroom is coming, she notices her flame is burning out. It suddenly occurs to her that she is not as prepared as she once assumed.

It seems harmless, but she has neglected the oil supply and because of this she has compromised her flame, forfeiting her place next to her bridegroom by seeking oil elsewhere. Thinking she has rectified the situation, she goes back to her groom, only to be denied entrance because she is recognized not as His beloved but as a stranger. This bride lacked something money could not buy and appearances could not compensate and that is intimacy.

A Prophetic Vision- The Holy Spirit Ember Attack

image

It is a vision I have seen numerous times during moments in prayer and worship- individuals and nations encased in fire and the breath of God blowing on each of them, fanning the flame to others. Not long ago during a time of worship the Lord showed me a vision of  people as glowing embers, burning coals with no visible flame.

These embers were alive and yet underestimated because a raging fire appeared to not consume them. It is tempting to miss the potential of a fire hazard with remaining embers that simply refuse to die because we are looking for the flames.

Renegade Christianity

image

What comes to mind when you hear the word, renegade? Maybe you envision a rugged outlaw defying a corrupt system and fighting for the common good. Maybe you picture Jesus driving out the money changers from the temple or defying the religious stiff necks of His day.

In case you are wondering, renegade Christianity in this context is not a lifestyle to adopt. Days before the New Year these words came into my spirit. At the beginning of last year, God had told me that “rewriters of the Covenant” would emerge, those who not only claim their own salvation but would attempt to redefine the Word of God. This has been happening for quite some time and a torrent of unrighteousness swelled last year.

What IN The World Are We Doing?

imageOur world is in an apparent mess. If you are living in this century then you know what I am speaking of. You can turn on any electronic device or your television and see what kind of mess we humans are capable of producing. You can simply walk outside of your home and instantly be bombarded with ominous signs of doom and gloom from every angle. There is no shortage of headlines about the acts of a corrupt government, perversion in our society and the flagrant abandonment of God’s Word and statutes.
