Gatekeepers

 

I am releasing this Word of the Lord because He has instructed me to do so.

On Sunday, April 28, 2014 the Lord said to me:

We are the gatekeepers to the presence of the Lord.  He provides 24/7 access but we must decide when to enter.

His will is that we are in His presence continuously (Psalm 24:7-8).  But we must create the environment (atmosphere) for His presence to operate.  The presence of God (Holy Spirit) flows when we turn our hearts to worship and seek the Lord.  It is not a prolonged ritual but a shifting of the mind to focus on the glory of His presence (Psalm 100:4; Psalm 95:2) while expecting to hear from the Lord.

We initiate the communication process.  A true heart of worship gives us immediate access to the throne of God (Psalm 100).

We must be aware of the changes that occur before we get into His presence. This enables us to repeat the process immediately by subconsciously and consciously shift our internal atmosphere (mind, soul and heart) to one that anticipates and welcomes His presence.

Psalm 24:7-10 (NKJV)
7 Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
The Lord mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory. Selah

Psalm 100 (NKJV)
A Song of Praise for the Lord’s Faithfulness to His People
A Psalm of Thanksgiving.

100 Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.

3 Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

5 For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.

Psalm 93:1 (NKJV)
The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The Lord is clothed,
He has girded Himself with strength.
Surely the world is established, so that it cannot be moved.

Psalm 95:2
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

Psalm 96:2
Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.

Psalm 116:17
I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the LORD.
