People of His Presence

“And they shall be My people, and I will be their God; 39 and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always, for their own good, and for the good of their children after them. 40 “And I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me. 41 “And I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will faithfully plant them in this land with all My heart and with all My soul.

Understanding Worship As A Lifestyle

Learn more as we teach on “Understanding Worship As A Lifestyle” Sunday, March 3rd, 2019 at 10:30am at Father’s Vineyard

Matt Redman’s song “The Heart of Worship” started when a congregation lost it’s way to worship. Then found it’s way back.

“When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that’s of worth
That will bless your heart
I’ll bring you more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what you have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart”

“I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus”


Harp & Bowl

Joyful In Prayer?

When King David brought back the Ark of the Covenant to the city of Jerusalem, instead of veiling the Ark with a curtain as Moses had done, David surrounded the Ark with musicians and singers, who continually offered up worship and prayer to God day and night without ceasing. That’s right, he placed it in a tent and established praise and worship mixed with music and prayer in the Tabernacle of David (1 Chronicles 15 & 16).

During his reign, there was constant praise and worship, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week before the Ark of the Covenant. For over 33years, they worshiped God wholeheartedly and He blessed the nation of Israel in mighty ways. God promised in Acts 15 that one day He will restore the Tabernacle of David. Harp and Bowl is a foreshadowing of that restoration, and what is done in the spirit of the Tabernacle of David.

Revelation 4 and 5 tells us that this is the kind of worship in heaven around the throne of God. The four living creatures and twenty-four elders fall before the Lamb. Each one holds a harp and a bowl. The harp represents music and the bowl represents the prayers of the believers.

Ephesians 5:19 instructs us to make music in our hearts to the Lord.  Also, in 1 Thessalonians 5:16,17, we are told to be joyful always and to pray constantly. Harp and Bowl combines music and prayer, one enhancing the other; worship makes prayer enjoyable and sustainable for longer periods. This allows us to connect with the Holy Spirit and joyfully flow in our prayers. God promised in Isaiah 56:7 to give His worshipers joy in His house of prayer. Many are discovering that through joyful prayerthey are being drawn deeper into the heart of God.
