4 He brought me to the banqueting house,
and his banner over me was love.

4 May he grant you your heart’s desire
and fulfill all your plans!
5 May we shout for joy over your salvation,
and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!

4 You are beautiful as Tirzah, my love,
lovely as Jerusalem,
awesome as an army with banners.

So, I woke up this morning and this is what I heard from the heavens. Light. Not blasting. Soft sound. JESUS is calling me into this intimate place. And then He talked about last Sunday at our worship. We had some words about worship and I was asked to teach what worship is about. The thing is, worship for me is so totally different and those who are like me. Or, me, like them.
Worship is about being so in love with Jesus that we see Him daily. Touch Him. Some touch His feet. Hands. Face. I kiss Jesus. You would probably wonder why would I dare to kiss Jesus’ lips. Am I a heretic? Indeed not. Do you know that I was instructed by the prophets to kiss Jesus’ lips? Kiss His lips. Kiss His lips. Go right up and kiss His lips. Do you not think that they kiss His lips, therefore, me, after them, kiss His lips.
Our worship is not about being in the front of the church.
It’s about going up to Jesus and kissing His lips.
It’s about touching Him and seeing Him and ministering to Christ.
The highest calling.
This is the highest calling a person can attain in the kingdom of God.
We can do all our ministries. We can study till we know Scripture back to front and front to back. We can be the best holy person the world has ever known.
But to minister to Christ is the highest calling you can attain in God’s kingdom.
Going up to Him, with our unveiled faces. Drawing so close and personal that not only do we touch Him, but, most importantly, He touches us in the places of our hearts that we did not know existed until the God who with His very own hands created us, the only one who can change our lives.
There is a lot of spiritual warfare in this place. Not so much within us but from without. From the outside.
The devil will use any means to get people to hate us. Dislike us. Stop us from worshiping in this place.
As I’ve been led to understand in all the years, the devil does not want us to attain our highest calling in life.
To seek Christ and Him alone.
What can I say when opposition meets me face to face.
I smile in my heart and worship more and harder and meet Christ more often than ever.
I could call God’s glory down down down.
Do you not think that I do not have the authority?
After so many years.
Do not be deceived.
When the light of Christ is with me continuously and constantly, I stop myself. I do not call for the glory of the Lord to fall down. Nor do I push any of my children into the holy place anymore. Cos when I push them in, they are in. At the feet of Christ in His throne room, in Revelations.
When they are in it is because they are ready and Christ has called them.
It takes time to arrive at this destination.
Everything comes at a cost.
Do not underestimate the calling of my children in this place of holiness.
A child, Keifer, went for his interview and the teacher asked him why he wanted to come to their christian Methodist school. He thought and thought and thought. He had forgotten what his mum had taught him to say. He said, I want to pray to God. What he really meant was that he wanted to worship God.
All, stand on holy ground and it is Jesus who takes them to His side.
Children are the best in the world to meet Jesus, face to face.
Do you know that if there is any offense in us, it is not us they are offended with. Jesus is the offense.
Take everything back to Scripture.
32 Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone, 33 as it is written,
“Behold, I am laying in Zion ya stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense;
and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”
The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Ro 9:30–33). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.
Do not underestimate those Jesus have called to His side. He called them to His side. He equips them. He talks to them. They talk to Him. His ear and eyes are inclined unto them. So is theirs.
I will not give up the ground Jesus had called us to.
What do you think I will say to my children who worship. When you see Jesus, face to face, like me, like I was asked to, go up to Jesus and kiss His lips.
The thing is, if you are called to this place, you’ll do it anyways. It would be the reaction you would want to do as you’d be so in awe of Jesus. All you would want to do is to draw closer to Christ and Him alone.
We are a called people empowered by the Holy Spirit by fire like in the Acts 2.
You can read all there is about lifting up a banner to Jesus. In the end it is the heart that Jesus desires of us. Our all. All of ourselves. Without surrendering to the King of kings and Lord of lords, there is no way you can draw close to the Lord God Almighty. His glory and His light will not be upon you. This will be obvious to all who see you.
In experience of worship together as one in Christ Jesus, with our pastors and leaders, we are able to attain the mind of Christ. The heart of Christ. Christ, Himself. His Presence. His Glory. His Light.
This is no small feat.
Like in Ezekiel.
Like all Scripture.
That all may know that I AM God.
The inward shines forth outwards to all the nations.
