Being prophetic is not about what you are looking at; it is what you are looking for.
It’s a heart Kingdom.
The song of the Lord is more than just singing a song. One can measure the relationship of the worship leader with Jesus through the song. A good voice does not mean good presence. Thousands of believers have good voices but they have a bad relationship with Jesus. The song of the Lord brings the presence of God into the earth. Worship leaders can only take people where their heart is. One song can change a church service. One drummer who hits the right rhythm can change the entire flow. One chord progression that sets the sound the right way ushers a move of the Spirit.
Worship leaders can only take people where their heart is.
Many believers have become religious entertainment for the show displayed during church services. Gifts are dying and struggling to flourish because the culture of a lot of churches is more concerned with raising money than worshiping God in spirit and in truth. Don’t let religious systems steal your best ministry years.
To the Jews, preach like a Jew. To the Greeks, preach like a Greek (see 1 Corinthians 9:20-21). In other words, take the gospel and enculturate it to fit their culture. Judah has gone into captivity. Judah is symbolic to the praise and the worship of God. In a large portion of churches Judah is in captivity. The real anointing to help deliver is to get the mixture out.
The church becomes what the church sings.
“You can have all the money, have all the armies, have all the books, but if you let Me determine the songs that people sing I will rule the nation.”
Are you singing as a slave or as a son or daughter? Worship is the doorway to the supernatural. If you want to exit the earth and hit the Spirit, God designed it would be through worship. Every one of us is trapped inside of time and space and the only thing that allows us to exit time and space to touch eternity is living in the realm of the Spirit. We cannot substitute anything else for worship. Everything starts with worship. That’s why if we shut worship down in a church the percentage of the people there touching God is greatly diminished. We may be able to touch others with a gift, but when the gift leaves the touch is gone. If we access God in worship our entire destiny and life changes.
Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29).
Is there anything more beautiful than God Himself? Do you think the Creator would create something more glorious than Him? More spectacular than Him? If you are bored in worship it is because you have never seen Him. If you are not captivated in worship it is because you have never seen Him. Worship is not constrained by time. If your main focus during worship is questioning how long until it is over, that is because you have not seen Him. He is beautiful. You have never been captivated.
Many believers judge singers: “Will this man or woman ever stop singing?” Not unless they stop seeing Him! If you have never seen His beauty, you are not qualified to lead His people in worship. Unless worship leaders see His beauty they will become open targets to be seduced by all other beauties. Every living thing must be fed. Worship feeds our spirit.

Recently I was eating breakfast at a hotel when the Lord asked me, “What are you doing?” My first response was that I was eating, but beyond that the Lord said to me, “You are ingesting minerals and vitamins hidden in the food into your system.” Many believers are unhappy with their lives because they have a spiritual deficiency of minerals and vitamins. Worship feeds us, and if there is a lack of desire for worship there is a void in their hearts that must be filled. This is the reason many are empty even after a galore of services, prayer services, and preaching because worship provides an eternal satisfaction.
In order for all believers to feel full of the presence of God they must learn to love the God of worship. The purpose of worship is to glorify God, but in that worship God transfers His life.
The purpose of worship is to glorify God, but in that worship God transfers His life.
The reason many believers feel empty at various churches is because of the lack of transferred life. When life is transferred to us it is unexplainable. It’s supernatural. Life must be experienced. If one can explain everything that happens in our church, it is not a Jesus church. When we experience supernatural things they are unexplainable. Supernatural experiences do not come from time and space; they come from eternity.
