Forever Worship - Part 3
“The Way to the Throne”
In chapters 2 and 3 of Revelation, God instructs John to write to the angels of a certain group of seven churches. In these letters, God’s counsel to the churches is clear, affirming, and sometimes difficult to hear. God is encouraging His people to pursue Heaven and reject the lies and Illusions of this world.
Letting go of lies and rejecting lukewarm, passionless living precedes something amazing. Immediately after God’s counsel is heeded, God proclaims these words in Revelation 4, “Come up here, and I will show you what MUST take place after this.” John was immediately taken up to the Throne Room of Heaven.
Here is my point: Whenever the Counsel of God is esteemed and revered in an atmosphere of worship, the Throne Room becomes available. This is why scripture-based songs are so effective in worship. It is also why repentance many times precedes revival. God wants to speak to us so He can free us from obstacles, distractions, and cares that keep us from experiencing the seat of His presence.
My prayer is that we will again open our spiritual ears to hear and celebrate what God is saying to our church by His word and His Spirit. The Throne Room is waiting.
