When we come together in the Spirit, entering into the Lord’s presence we are changed. There is no one who cannot be changed and that within a group dynamic of the Spirit’s leadership. God is supernatural, Sovereign over everything including appointments, gatherings, situations, human hearts and minds on any scale and plane.
For a poor illustration imagine a number of people gathered with each bringing a number, either negative or positive, from 1 to a billion. In the Holy Spirit’s presence the numbers can be divided, summed, multiplied and fitted into a perfect equation without changing the independent raw numbers. The perfect equation represents a valid, tested, verifiable truth as it relates to each member of the group, the number they brought, and the completed collective result after the Spirit’s influence. With math it is possible to express any symbol, sound, or words; this is how computers operate, but the numerical coordinates must be input and/or calculated through complex programs and routines. Moreover, math merely models an image, sound or word, while the Spirit can transform, enlighten, and accomplish anything. God is able to do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us. (Eph. 3:20)
The reality of being in the presence of the Spirit is receiving grace, mercy, favor, wisdom and an impartation of that which the Lord desires for one, more, or all gathered. “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” (Psalm 100:4) “So then, when you come together, it is not the Lord’s Supper you eat…” [but it should be] (1 Corinthians 11:20ff) “What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.” (1 Cor. 14:26) Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24)
I have experienced this on numerous occasions, none exactly the same, as the Spirit leads in what is necessary at that time for that gathering. Whether the central focus becomes prayer, worship, rejoicing, praise, instruction, various words of encouragement, prophecy or impartation the result will be extraordinarily good and satisfying to the soul. This is the normal operation of the Spirit among a group of spirit filled believers.
