Meeting with God

Glory to God!

Today's meeting was awesome. During our time of worship in song, the Lord began to manifest His presence in a wonderfully tangible way. The Holy Spirit ushered us into the throne room of God and many received words of knowledge and Scriptures from the Lord for our people. It was very powerful indeed!

Richard then spoke to us about our responsibility to commune with God if we are to communicate His glory. You can listen to the message entitled, "The Tent of Meeting" here. This is what Richard shared with us:
  •  The Church is called to communicate God's glory. Isaiah 60:1-3
  • God's glory is the manifesation of His holiness.
  • God's holiness is the divine otherness of God - His goodness, love, compassion, mercy, etc. Exodus 33:22-34:7
  • Jesus came to communicate God's glory. Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:6
  • Likewise, the Church is called to communicate God's glory! Ephesians 4:24
  • The key to communicating God's glory is communion with God.
  • Moses communicated the glory of God because he met with God. Exodus 33:7-11
  • In order for the believer to meet with God, s/he must position himself or herself with the assurance and conviction that s/he will meet with the Lord.
  • In order for the believer to meet with God, s/he must be resolute in waiting on God until s/he meets with Him.
  • The believer has met with God when there is evidence in his or her life of the manifestation of God's holiness.
  • The Church will only communicate God's glory when she is truly meeting with Him on a regular basis.
We praise God for the gift of His manifest presence, for His invitation to us to meet with Him face to face and for the amazing responsibility of communicating His glory!

Moving forward!

Glory to God!

The Kingdom of God is advancing and God calls us as His people to move forward with Him. He is calling His Bride, the Church, to arise and shine for God's glory is upon her (Is 60:1). On Sunday, Frances showed us what can hinder us from moving forward with God and how we can practically overcome these obstacles. You can listen to the message here.

In order to move forward we must let go of the past! Isaiah 43:18,19
  • We cannot change the past
  • Stop asking 'why?' and looking for answers
  • Forgive others and forgive yourself
  • Clean up any mess you have made!

In order to move forward we must stay on track! Lamentations 3:19-24
  • We must align ourselves to the Word of God and the Holy Spirit and not be dependent on feelings and circumstances to determine our direction if we are to stay on track.
  • Know what God is saying to you and stick with it. Luke 9:51; Acts 21:12-14
  • Don't make any important decisions while in a highly emotional state.
  • Don't allow adverse circumstances or other people's opinions throw you off track.
  • Hold on to what you know to be true.
  • Let go of the 'why?'questions - the danger is that we can come up with an answer that may make us feel better but actually compromises the Truth and of who God is.

In order to move forward we must beware of getting stuck in a rut! Song of songs 2:15-17
  • Pursue what God has called you to.
  • You cannot change your past but you can change your future.
  • God has empowered you to make godly choices.
  • Don't wait for perfect conditions before you make a move.
  • To pursue God we need to let go of the familiar and false security and trust in God.
