“There is an encounter with me through YOUR worship in the arts that you have yet to experience in the earth realm,” says the Lord. “As long as my people seek separation from my congregation the fullness of the beauty of what I seek to reveal will be hindered, held back. Now, I am destroying the factions among you. I am pulling those who have charge over you into understanding unity as I created it. SURELY, the Tabernacle of David will be restored within you and my congregation rightly fitted together. I am restoring the corporate worship of my artisans beyond the walls of men…”
I Corinthians 12:4-7 CJB: “Now there are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit gives them. 5 Also there are different ways of serving, but it is the same Lord being served. 6 And there are different modes of working, but it is the same God working them all in everyone. 7Moreover, to each person is given the particular manifestation of the Spirit that will be for the common good.”
“I am ending seclusion. I am disrupting and ending mini-societies. I am closing doors flesh opened and opening doors into me,” says the Lord. “The fullness of worship will be made known to you.”
1 Corinthians 12:12-13 CJB: “The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 13For we were all baptized by[c] one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.”
VISION IN THE MIDST OF THE WORD: As the Lord spoke, I saw ministers of varying artistic forms working together, yet secluded into their own separate “society.” Their entire existence was rooted in their particular faction. I saw writing groups isolated from other artistic worshipers in the House of David. I saw ministers of dance separated unto themselves. I saw psalmists and musicians in their own society – yet no one seemed notice that the other artistic worshipers apart from themselves were designed to fit with them. They were intently focused on their own society – divided and justified in their separateness. Most startling of all was that these “worshipers” were apart from the Body of Christ, the very congregation of the Lord. There seemed to be no desire to join with the Body, but the perverted desire to stay in their faction or group. They were SCATTERED! They were deceived into thinking they could feed, mature and prosper themselves outside of the ORDER OF WORSHIP based solely on their “specific” anointing, understanding and call. This troubled my spirit greatly. Fear suddenly gripped me because of their condition. The cloud that once rested upon them turned dark and began to surround their heads and faces as they drew more INTO SELF. I simply heard this: Many plans are in a man’s mind, but it is the Lord’s plan for Him that will stand. Suddenly, the vision ended. Amen.
The Spirit of the Lord is saying, “My worshipers who are standing blindly in this position will not stand in this present season with strength and power. I am crushing their perceived power! I am crushing entitlement! I am crushing selfishness! I am tearing down every KINGDOM that has exalted itself above my name and have sought to still my Glory and build an idol god in my name. I have come to destroy their FALSE WORSHIP! Truly my MASTER CRAFTSMEN have been asleep, but NOW I am awakening them to truth! I am opening their eyes and preparing their hearts to receive! Surely, not all will be lost… but will be drawn back into my presence by what I will show them. I desire to commune and to dwell with them in the beauty of my holiness. Go, Prophet! Tell them…”
1 Corinthians 12:14-19 says, “Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 16And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 17If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20As it is, there are many parts, but one body.”
“I am calling you out of men’s patterns and visions, complacency and slothfulness… I am calling you OUT and into a place of building on the true foundation of MY APOSTLES & PROPHETS. I am calling you beyond a building, beyond a mindset, beyond denomination, beyond the simply reasoning of an earth bound vessel! I am calling you higher…,” says the Lord. “Hear the call! SEEK ME! Come out from among them into the unity and power of MY WORSHIP. I am uniting, connecting and building by My Spirit! YOU ARE NO LONGER SCATTERED, DIVIDED, SEPARATED FROM YOUR TRUE PURPOSE IN ME….”
VISION IN THE MIDST OF THIS WORD: I saw artisans, all manner artisans, rising out of these confined shoe-like boxes. The tops were flying off and all types of artisans began to flow in their ordained gifts IN WORSHIP before the Lord – not before one another. Then their boxes turned into elaborate treasure boxes adorned with all manner of jewelry. These artisans, though all together, WORSHIPED GOD IN SPIRIT & IN TRUTH! The vision ended.
