That Altar of Worship

Image
An altar is a place of sacrifice, a place where divinity met with man and it’s the place where God still meets mankind. Altars are not just an Old Testament thing but all of us have our place of sacrifice that’s our altar right there. We are not talking of the pulpit area in your church, the stage or the front where the choir sings from.


An altar is not picked up on the floor like a coin which you have dropped and altar has to be built from scratch with the blueprint from God. Every time the patriarchs build an altar and sacrificed on that altar God responded and met them on the very same place.


Yes we no longer kill animals these days but we have been made the temple of the most high
“And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them”. Exodus 25:8 KJV and then Hebrews 8:2 KJV says “…the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man”.



God desires that He, be a huge part of our lives and may we also reciprocate such a heart by the way we offer ourselves to him. Christ…

Our Lives, Our Service Worship Leaders

Image
Our lives and worship services should be place where we get to see the move and work of God. Our lives should be the place where we create, cleanse, prepare the messenger in anticipation for the Message. Our primary place and reason of being anointed as worship leaders is to bring man to the feet of Jesus, to bring man to the place where they connect with the presence of God.


One of the most technical things I learnt is that you cannot give away what you don't have. You can never take people to the place where you have never been either can you direct them. So many worshippers, we want to give want we don't have and if we endeavour to give away something then we ought to have it within us. At times we underestimate the real work we do when we lead worship.


"The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening…

Preparing For A Move Of God: Part 3 The Power of Life

Image
We are living in era and season when men are just existing, there is so much coming against him especially the life of the Christian on a daily basis and that’s the reason why He is crushed beyond words. People walk into church services, conferences and concerts the still leave the same but we claim that Christ offers solutions.


When you hear people such they are giving up on God, as Worshippers we have missed a huge part of our purpose and reason for existence. We are carriers of the ark of the covenant (glory of God) and we have stashed it somewhere away from the church to experience the presence of God because we ourselves have become dull and lifeless.

If we are going to see a move of God coming through our time and generation then the we need to move to a place where a scripture like John 6:63 speaks of "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life".


If we believe such passages of scri…

Preparing For A Move Of God: Part 2 - Power Over Sin

Image
As worshippers our desire and heart is to see the move of God, is to see people connect and fall in love with God. To see mankind basking in his presence and God touching people's hearts and he in turn dwelling on our praises. We shouldn't be driven by comments about how we did or played or how well we executed the new song more than being focused on hearing God and bringing people to his feet.

It's easy to be in a crew, dance troupe, band or choir and hide away in it but when it comes to worship time before God you are standing alone before him alone. Not with anyone else but just alone. There is this one thing that you get to see happen when we take our time and invest in knowing the word of God and not just knowing the word but understanding its impact in our lives all around.  


The manual we have says this, "Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you", John 15: 3. As we read the word of God it makes us clean by the washing that comes from th…

Preparing For A Move Of God Part 2

Image
Attaining or seeing a move of God or the power of God sweeping over all things in our sphere of influence starts with us the Worshippers. It's not someone else job or idea it actually start with us, we are the link to this and the power is then seen when we are corporate agreement to one thing.

In our pursuit to see people change, in our pursuit to see the altar of God and the move of God in and amongst the people we serve and lead, we have to come to a place where we know who God is personally and come to a place where we have a resolve that is unshakeable. As worshippers the best way to know the God is by us spending time with the word of God and seeing it become alive in our lives.


When we stay in the word we will come up to a place where we meet scriptures like these that say "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it". Isai…

Preparing For The Move Of God - Purity

Image
So many times we are so concerned and worried about how we sound and how we are being seen, the image of our lives, how PC (Politically Correct) we are. We are concerned about our image, how deep people think we are, what will people say after we leave the room or we lead worship on Sunday. We try our best to use the music, clothes, our voice to try and portray how deep and awesome we are in life.

When you look back at the end of the day what is important is that have we stood in our place and allowed or facilitated God  to meet men and men to meet God. We want things to happen when we pray and when we lead worship, or when we do that solo or that special in church or at an outreach.

Impact starts with us, individually as Worshippers and one of the things that causes us to see things happen in our lives is when we allow the word of a God to purify and clean us. Just like in Psalms 12: 6-7 which says "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, pur…

Worshippers Manuscript...

So many times we desire and do our best to chase after God and make sure that our worship is on point and that it grows and most times we rarely have place of information about how to do it. God has already set for us a manual which as worshippers we should be able to know and live by.

"Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you". Proverbs 1:23 KJV 

God's heart is always and will always be for the advancement of people and one of the things that will bring advancement in someone life is just the concept of reading and applying the word.

Before we can even understand the concept of the word we need to have a personal relationship with the word and truth of God we need to learn to have a relationship with the spirit of God, he alone will cause us to know the truth of God written in his word.

Jesus said that the spirit will help us to understand and know the truths of God and will bring into remembrance  of what …
