The emergence of house worship

Have you noticed that quite suddenly we have gone from attending church services and worship gatherings in buildings, to now finding ourselves worshiping in our living rooms, on our own with God?

Is this frightening to you? No one to tell you when to sit, stand, yell out or high five someone? No one to see how you diligently serve in church or watch you respond by lifting your hands?

Well, God has been preparing me for some time now to “make my house, His house”, to create a place for Him to dwell. To stir up His presence and see His glory manifest in my humble dwelling.

Our family worship times have been the most gloriously uplifting and satisfying as we dance before the Lord, praying and waiting on Him.

What if we are transitioning into something greater? What if this time of so called ‘restriction’ is causing us to rely on the pure presence and glory of God?

Our homes are becoming His homes. From these places of worship we will see a mighty move of God that will spread from house to house across our nation.

Ask the Lord to make your house His dwelling place and expect a fresh visitation.

Friends of the bridegroom

God is calling out the friends of the Bridegroom to prepare for His glorious arrival. That’s us! We are His friends.

Just like John the Baptist was making way for Jesus’s ministry, we also are like groomsmen setting up and preparing the way for our Bridegroom to appear and return for His bride (His church).

The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete.
John 3:29 (NIV)

The groomsmen prepare seats and tables and make sure everything is in order. Why? Because they are full of anticipation and joy awaiting His arrival! They don’t want to let Him down.

Some of us are in the process, even now of preparing banquet tables and setting atmospheres of worship in expectation of the wedding feast and the glorious arrival of our Saviour. Get ready, the Bridegroom is coming!

Prepare for the work

Jeremiah 1:18-19 (MSG)

“Stand at attention while I prepare you for your work.
I’m making you as impregnable as a castle,
Immovable as a steel post,
solid as a concrete block wall.
You’re a one-man defense system
against this culture,
Against Judah’s kings and princes,
against the priests and local leaders.
They’ll fight you, but they won’t
even scratch you.
I’ll back you up every inch of the way.”
God’s Decree.

Are you ready to begin the work that God is preparing you for? He has been strengthening your character with patience, stamina and passion.

He has also been putting together all the talents within you to equip you for this moment.

You will be hurled into a divine work but you will also need to remain solid, steadfast and unshakable through it.

You may come up against supernatural powers that dominate this culture, opposition in the high places of influence and spiritual forces in the heavenly realms. But you are empowered to conquer them and come out without even a scratch.

God promises that even with all of this opposition to the work, He will back you up. He is behind you all the way. And if God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31b NIV)
