Intimate Worship

“Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.” (Ezekiel 43: 5).

There is a place of being and presence before the throne of God Almighty. It may actually be before the gates that open to His courts where in the very center of Heaven He sits enthroned before the Cherubim, Elders, Four beasts, Archangels, and other heavenly beings, as scripture describes. I can’t imagine approaching very close given the awe and majesty there, but this place, irrespective of its precise reality, would be filled with an atmosphere of Spirit, awareness, and fellowship. The presence you sense in the company of friends, unlike the self-consciousness of being on stage, or among a crowd or audience. There is ample room for spirit as this is no physical or spatially reality where each one possesses his own space. The limits of earth’s dimensions are not here.

This is where worship begins – a knowing and yearning to know and be known. This is an active peace where accomplishment, satisfaction, and achievement, in their most unselfish sense reside with acceptance. Thanksgiving, praise, love washing over and flowing out in waves of joy and delight. There is no baggage, no distinguishing attire, nothing of this world to distract or burden, such heaviness has been cast off, releasing its hold, before arriving.

There is a posture of kneeling and bowing because there is no pride only humility. There is no setting or background to distract for Yeshua and the Father are the focus where eyes fail, but spirit enlightens. There is light, that familiar energy, incomprehensible, and infinite, not like that of the sun which is often shaded, burning and dangerous to behold directly. This is the light of enlightenment, revealing that which is necessary for goodness to thrive and abide.

In the washing of the waves of love coming in and flowing out adoration flows. Thanks and praise have been given so what remains is worship, surrender, submission, all that flows out is a product of His love and presence that first flowed over us. Everything is from Him and to Him. Yeshua said, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.” (John 14: 16-17). Every Believer can join the worldwide Holy Spirit led chorus of ongoing worship anytime anyplace because we live in Him.
