Standing in the glory!

Posted by appolus on July 11, 2017

“Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and dine with him and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” (Rev 3:19-21)

For too long we, as the called out people have only entered into “His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise.” And while there is great emphasis in ancient Israel for worship of joyful abandon and gladness, this was not the only “mood,” of worship.

Even prior to Jesus manifesting Himself on the earth there was a worship of awe and of reverence where one could barely lift their heads. The power would fall, the shekinah glory of the living God would fall with such a “Holy heaviness,” that one could barely lift their heads. There is a desperate need for this kind of encounter in our day.

If we are to move to a different place in God, as individuals and as a called out people, we must answer the knock at the door of our hearts. In order to hear that knocking we must abandon the cares of this world and retreat from its noise and distractions. Instead of seeking the gold and the silver of this world, we must turn our eyes to the treasures that belong to heaven and its throne room. We cannot do this by employing “professional,” worship teams and leaders. Genuine corporate prayer with a desire to enter into His presence is the key.

If we are to hear God, we must become silent before Him. We are moving into a time where it will be vital to be intimate with Him.There is a time for shouting and praising God, but if we are ignoring the knocking, if we never get to that place of reverence and awe when He moves and we simply bow our heads and tremble at His glory then we must stop shouting. If our lives are not reflecting the Glory of God, if we are not becoming like His Son daily, then all of our shouting and praising God will just be so much noise. How tragic for the church of the living God if, when He looks down, He does not see praise but just a group of people making a noise.

    So true! We used to have this experience back in the 70’s & 80’s before all of the hyper-Pentecostalism and TBN-type ministries started to really flourish and fleece the sheep, robbing them of their intimacy with the Lord. No wonder Jesus used the term “little flock”. If Christians spend time worshipping the Father in Spirit and truth within their personal lives and prayer closets, they will certainly be like-minded in the Spirit when they come together (even if just 2 or 3 at a time) and the Spirit of Christ will definitely be “in their midst” and move accordingly!

    It is sad that there has been at least a generation that knows nothing of the manifest presence of God. Yes indeed there will be “little flocks,” all over the world in the days to come. The remnant day is at hand…………………bro Frank
