I was led by the Holy Spirit to launch a channel I subscribe to in YouTube. DappyTKeys Piano Worship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOC5pQNFFMk I wanted to listen to this very gifted man while I was doing Bible study. God had other plans. Right after the music began to play and I sat in my prayer chair with my Bible, I felt a sensation radiating from the center of my chest (my heart) outwards. It was overwhelming. I could not speak because the Spirit was doing all the talking to God, the Father. This was a small example of the feeling I had felt in a dream I had not too long ago where I was sitting at my desk, as I am now, when I felt the Presence of God entering my room through the open door. I turned but did not see Him. I felt Him. It was so strong that it overcame me and I raised my arms upward as a child would to be picked up by their parent. Then I woke up. I haven’t a clue as to the meaning of that dream but God knows.
DappyTKeys features various Bible verses that appear on the screen. This one began with John 17. So I took my Bible and turned to it. We have no idea nor cannot begin to comprehend this side of heaven the intensity of the relationship between Jesus and His Father. I read John 17 and began to feel a smattering of it. Tears fell from my eyes. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ for us was a deeply personal thing between Jesus and the Father. Something way beyond our meager human comprehension but one day we will, in full, know and understand it.
God sings to us. He sings over us. Zephaniah 3:17. There is a lot of singing mentioned in the Bible. Singing is important to God. Universe = one song. We sing praises to Him. We worship in song. Why is that? Is it because it is a special language between God and His creation? Do Jesus and the Father and Holy Spirit sing to each other? Didn’t Paul, when he was in prison, sing psalms?
The Holy Spirit is so powerful that sometimes we have tears falling from our eyes as an outlet. I once read an account of a pastor who took some of his flock to Israel. They were walking in the old section of Jerusalem when they suddenly stopped and began to weep. The pastor was convinced that Jesus stood on that spot (among many others) and left an imprint of Himself in the stone so that when a Christian comes upon it, they are overwhelmed with His presence and weep. In my mind’s eye, I pictured Jesus walking through Jerusalem and stopping at certain spots and touching the stone wall of a building and then moving on like He was leaving an imprint of Himself for future followers.
So in this horrid time that we live in, I wanted to redirect all of you to the One who will give us peace that surpasses all understanding. To invite you to draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:8
Bless you all. He is Coming!
