Flesh versus Spirit


“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.  God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”   John 4:23-24, NKJV.

My child, My word says to worship Me in spirit and in truth.  But My people have been missing the mark with religious entertaining praise concerts instead of true worship.

The Hollywood hype of laser lights and smoke has become the norm.  Now, congregations come in My name to be entertained instead of joining in unity of My Spirit to worship Me.  It is true worship that touches heaven and changes the atmosphere in the earth realm.

If the enemy can keep My people in the flesh, he can manipulate and control them through emotions.  I created emotions and I know how strong they are and how unstable they can be.

But My Word is stable: Rock Solid.  The Spirit of Truth will lead you from praise into worship and then into the glory of My presence.  This is the order of how you enter the outer court, into the inner court, and finally into the glory of the Holy of Holies.

I desire to bring My people into the higher realms of glory, but the flesh must give way to the Spirit.  The melody of glory-touched voices will destroy strongholds, push back the darkness, and open the windows of Heaven so an abundance of blessings can pour upon you and yours.

Come back My people, to your first love!  I have not moved away from you, but you have moved away from Me.  Return to the simplicity of worshipping in the Spirit.  Yes, it is so simple the babes know how to do it until you teach them otherwise.

I AM calling My people to leave behind the trappings of their western culture to take up My culture — the culture of Heaven.  Then there will come a day when you will hear the music of Heaven mixed in with your voices and instruments.  Truly the unity of heavenly and earthly worship shall shake the nations and usher in a time of in-gathering never seen before in the earth.

Simply give Me your all and I will do this in you, through you, and with you.  Come follow Me.  I know the way.  All is well.  Shalom.
