The bible tells us believers to love and honor each other, to prefer each other. Something that’s rarely seen on social media even though Jesus said: “the world will know us by our love for each other.” The orphan spirit is rampant among us from the top down. The competition is fierce as though God is going to run out of anointing. Leaders accumulate degrees in order to outdo each other, show off their knowledge of the Bible; but all we see in their lives is stagnation. Because of control and their fear to let The Holy Spirit take over minister, the power of God is not seen. The glory of God is nowhere to be found.
I attended the Come Holy Spirit conference by Revival Alliance in San Diego last weekend. The conference was off the chains, the worship glorious. On Friday night Jeremy Riddle a worship leader from Bethel church was suppose to lead worship. His plane got delayed, so a younger worship leader with only two other band members lead worship. He said before starting: ” Obviously I am not who you were expecting, let’s not make it about a man because it’s all about Jesus.” I saw God use him powerfully. Prophetic songs were birthed. Jeremy finally made it to the stage with his band, they took their place and began playing. I saw something that I had never seen before, he put down his guitar, knelt and lifted his hands in worship. The spirit of worship was already present. The glory of God fell, Heidi Baker the speaker for the night was flat on her face. The fire was everywhere, people were deeply touched by the Holy Spirit.
God loves honor. Suddenly the word that Dr. Lance Wallneau preached at lunch time about convergence, was manifested. We all saw it and was edified by it. This young worshiper probably had never lead worship in front of such a large crowd. But God made a way for him to be at the right place and launched him at his appointed time. I saw a divine connection between him and Heidi, she imparted into him. He will never be the same. Jeremy acted like a son firmly rooted in the love of The Father. He recognized The Lord working through the young man and stepped back and did not demand his slot. When this young man began to sing:
“Every part of me was made for every part of You
In You I am complete, You are my sufficiency.”
Heaven invaded that place. what would it be like if believers everywhere put the word of God into practice and really love one another? Honor and respect one another? I have no doubt that heaven would invade earth. We would experience the abiding glory of God all the time not just a visitation.
