“FALL ON YOUR KNEES”
Inspired by John 4:20-26
(See all of John 4) 🌈❤️🌈❤️🌈❤️🌈❤️🌈🥰🥰🥰
(Also inspired by Light and Life Christian Fellowship West’s “Night of Worship”) 🎶🎶🎶🙌🏾🙌🏾🌟🌟🌟🙌🏾🙌🏾🎶🎶🎶🌹🎶🌹🎶🌹🎶
🎶🎶🎶🎶 “FALL ON YOUR KNEES, O HEAR THE ANGELS VOICES! O NIGHT DIVINE. O NIGHT WHEN CHRIST WAS BORN. O NIGHT DIVINE ~ O NIGHT, O NIGHT DIVINE…” 🎶🎶🎶🎶
HE CAME NOT TO GIVE US PEACE IN SILENCE, BUT TO GIVE US AND TEACH US EXPRESSIVE WORSHIP AND PRAISE IN FREEDOM TO HONOR OUR CREATOR, OUR LORD AND OUR GOD!!!!
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THE COMING OF HIS SON?
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HE ANNOUNCED “THIS IS MY BELOVED SON IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED.”?
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HE ANNOUNCED TO ALL OF THE WORLD AND TO ALL THE GENERATIONS (FROM BEFORE HE MADE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE WORLD) THAT HE WOULD BRING SALVATION TO ALL?
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HE MADE IT KNOWN TO ALL THE DIVINE PURPOSE OF HIS SON’S COMING? ~TO CARRY OUR CROSS AND TO DIE FOR US~
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HE ANNOUNCED TO ALL HOW HIS SON WOULD DIE? ANY WHY?
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HIS SON TOOK HIS LAST BREATH AND HUNG DEAD FOR THE SINS OF ALL THE WORLD AND ALL ITS GENERATIONS (PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE)?
PROOF GOD WAS NOT QUIET:
THE MOMENT JESUS SECURELY AND TRUSTINGLY PLACED HIS SPIRIT INTO HIS HEAVENLY FATHER’S HANDS AS A SYMBOL OF COMPLETING HIS FATHER’S WORK (FOR NOW) ALL OF THE EARTH WHICH WAS MADE BY GOD QUAKED AND SHOOK, VIOLENTLY. (BOTH HISTORY AND THE BIBLE WHICH IS THE LIVING WORD OF GOD RECORDED THIS GREAT DAY IN ALL OF LIFE SOUNDED OFF LOUDLY IN HONOR OF THE DEATH OF OUR KING, THE TRUE MESSIAH.)
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HIS HEART BROKE SEEING JESUS THERE AND WATCHING THOSE WHO LOVED AND FOLLOWED HIM HEARTBROKEN, NEARLY HOPELESS, SUFFERING IN SILENCE, WAILING LOUDLY, TEARS FALLING FROM THEIR EYES IN GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT.
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HE COMFORTED HIS PEOPLE, HIS DISCIPLES?
WAS GOD QUIET?
WAS OUR LORD QUIET AT THE OPENING OF JESUS’ EYES?
WAS OUR LORD QUIET AT THE SOUND OF THE RESURRECTION OF HIS SON?
WAS GOD QUIET WHEN HE DID EXACTLY AS HE PREDICTED HE’D DO WHEN HE INFORMED THE UNBELIEVERS THAT HE WOULD RE-ERECT HIS TEMPLE AFTER THREE DAYS OF IT BEING DESTROYED?
WAS GOD QUIET???
NO, HE WASN’T.
AND HE IS NOT QUIET WHEN HE CALLS US TO COME TO KNOW HIM.
GOS IS NOT QUIET WHEN HE INTENTIONALLY CHASES US DOWN – EVEN AFTER HE HAS GAINED OUR HEARTS.
GOD IS NOT QUIET WHEN HE SENDS HIS SPIRIT TO PASS OVER US.
GOD WILL NOT BE QUIET –
AT THE FIRST SOUND OF THE TRUMPET CALL, WE WILL BEHOLD HIS SON RIDING IN ON A CLOUD TO FINALLY END THIS THING FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL.
Glory, glory, glory to God!!!!!! Hallelujah!!! He is challenging us ALL “GO DEEPER” “COME FOR ME WITH ALL YOU HAVE! I’M DOING A NEW THING!!” He’s getting READY to turn us all upside down, inside out. We can’t stay here any longer. We need to follow His lead. Trust Him and unlearn TO LEARN HIM. This scripture plays in my head always:
John 4:24 (NKJV)
24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
We CANNOT worship with last year’s or yesterday’s knowledge or expression. We MUST go higher in Him. We must desire to have more of Him.
He wants to take us from milk TO MEAT. It’s a sure thing with Him, but we CANNOT be afraid. #trust #follow #obey
We must submit to what Jesus was drawing our attention to rather than focus on what our eyes see: the sin in others. Our trespass against God once He saves us is we feel we can now CHOOSE what is a suitable and acceptable “worship” for and of God. “Accept my ‘reasonable’ worship, It’s MY gift (sacrifice) to you, God. You’ll get nothing more. I run this show. You take what I give you, because it’s what I was taught to give you.”
HOW DARE WE!!!!!!???? HOW DARE WE!!!!!!!!!!????
WE’RE WRONG ON SOOOOOOO MANY LEVELS. SO MANY!!!! NOT JUST ONE SECT, ONE RELIGION/DENOMINATION- ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. ALL.
HOW DARE WE???? And call ourselves “The people of God” God’s people are recognized by wasaaaaaay MORE than what day of the week we choose to worship Him, not judging others, not thinking we are above others, and NEVER getting settled in the thought “we have the truth” while we know NOTHING OF THE TRUE GIFT (JESUS CHRIST, HIS BELOVED SON)
God chose what is good and acceptable to Him – what our reasonable service is to Him – He will not accept anything less than what He has already decided is right and good. Those who choose NOT TO OBEY Him, fully, WILL NOT hear Him say, “Well done, My good and faithful servant.” The end. They WON’T.
READ SCRIPTURE FOR WHAT IT IS, WHAT IT SAYS, not what you “interpret” for your comfort and convenience. Ask Holy Spirit to OPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL EYES. Repent and begin FOLLOWING AS THE DISCIPLES DID. AT HIS CALL – They left EVERYTHING AND FOLLOWED JESUS, not “doctrine”, not tradition, nor any other person’s “interpretation” Just JESUS.
Scripture becomes ALIVE when we want nothing more than Him. ~ DAILY, FELLOWSHIP & RELATIONSHIP ~ THE END.
God keeps NO RECORD of wrongs or misinformation- He only sees our deep search of Him – TO KNOW HIM, TO LOVE HIM AND TO SERVE HIM. The end.
Check this out (add NOTHING to it, take NOTHING from it) JUST TAKE IT IN AS IS: OPEN OUR EYES LORD GOD. SHOW US THE FATHER WHO IS OUR TRUTH:
The woman said to him, “Sir, I can see that you are a prophet.
Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain;* but you people say that the place to worship is in Jerusalem.”
Jesus said to her, “Believe me, woman, the hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
You people worship what you do not understand; we worship what we understand, because salvation is from the Jews.
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth;* and indeed the Father seeks such people to worship him.
God is Spirit, and those who worship him must worship in Spirit and truth.”
* The woman said to him, “I know that the Messiah is coming,k the one called the Anointed; when he comes, he will tell us everything.”
Jesus said to her, “I AM HE,” the one who is speaking with you.” HALLELUJAH!!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
ARE YOU READY??????? GOD SEEKS TRUE SEEKERS OF HIM. UNASHAMED, FEARLESS AND THOSE WHO DESIRE TO GIVE HIM TOTAL PRAISE – WITH THE SOUND OF OUR VOICES, THE RAISING OF OUR HANDS, THE CRIES FROM OUR HEARTS, THE DANCE IN OUR FEET, THE LOVE OF OUR HEARTS – EXPRESSIVE WORSHIP, UNINHIBITED- WITHHOLDING NOTHING FROM HIM.
ENOUGH OF THE OLD WAY OF WORSHIPING GOD. Throw away your OLD traditions and family practices. Seek God in your private prayer closet and ask Him to place in YOU HIS MORE ACCEPTABLE PRAISE. YES!!!!
REPENT AND LEARN THE TRUE GOD FOR YOURSELF.
Was God quiet when He made all of this for our enjoyment. NO! We hear and see Him and know His presence in EVERYTHING!!!
He wants to and He will make you fishers of men. Go deeper.
Let’s do this!! 🌈🌸🦋🌟🌈 NEWNESS IS HERE. TO KNOW HIM IS TO LOVE HIM AND TO OBEY HIM IS TO SERVE HIM. “FEED MY SHEEP.” -Jesus, The Good Shepherd 🌹🌹🌹
