Ps.144:3-5 – LORD, what is man, that You look after him?
Or a son of man, that You think of him?
Man is like the breath;
His days are like a passing shadow.
Bend down Your heavens, LORD, and come down;
Touch the mountains, that they may smoke.
I am just going to state the obvious, God came down today. Like He always does when He visits us unmistakeable things happen; we are convicted of our sins, we are filled with awareness of His grace and love for us, our bodies and emotions are healed, we are filled with vision and courage, we are filled with compassion for the lost, and we are filled with supernatural power to go forward. All of this happened today and more as we gathered and worshipped with Sean Feucht at the Let Us Worship event. Here is how the Jonathan Edwards describes this passage.
“Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down, etc. This was never so remarkably fulfilled as in the incarnation of Jesus Christ, when heaven and earth were, as it were, brought together. Heaven itself was, as it were, made to bow that it might be united to the earth. God did, as it were, come down and bring heaven with him. He not only came down to the earth, but he brought heaven down with him to men and for men. It was a most strange and wonderful thing.”
Moves of God are all similar but have their own distinct characteristics. Azusa Street was a restoration of the prayer language and the power of God. Then there was the obvious, the healing revival of the 40’s and 50’s where healing was the very atmosphere of those services. In the 1960’s and 70’s there was the charismatic renewal marked by a return to an emphasis on worship. The Jesus movement was connected to the charismatic renewal with a radical change of culture in the church. The River revival brought a display of supernatural joy and consecration with a major sense of God’s presence being restored to the church. Today, we tasted the first waves of this new Jesus outpouring. God came down in the midst of our worship and touched His people. People were healed, delivered from addictions, liberated from sexual bondages, and fell in love with Jesus. What started as a cry to LET US WORSHIP has shifted to a cry for revival. This new awakening seems to be focused on worship and spills over into ministry to the oppressed and hurting. Something has changed since 2020. I think the Lord is raising up a people who are totally sold out to Him.
