Last week in the garden, our crew relocated the Window of Heaven feature to a more secluded area in Manasseh. Chuck wanted the Window to be hidden, because it is important that you seek out your open doors! The bible says in Matthew 7:7 – “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” It is so important that that you seek out God and ask Him to reveal your doors to you. You must enter in to ascend! If you didn’t get a chance to tune into Chuck’s message about open doors on Sunday, I recommend you go to the website and check out the replay!
It is a beautiful day outside with cooler temperatures and sunshine. The garden is exceptionally gorgeous today and I wanted to share it with you, so here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
39 “‘So beginning with the fifteenth day of the seventh month, after you have gathered the crops of the land, celebrate the festival to the Lord for seven days; the first day is a day of sabbath rest, and the eighth day also is a day of sabbath rest. 40 On the first day you are to take branches from luxuriant trees—from palms, willows and other leafy trees—and rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days. 41 Celebrate this as a festival to the Lord for seven days each year. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come; celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 Live in temporary shelters for seven days: All native-born Israelites are to live in such shelters 43 so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in temporary shelters when I brought them out of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.’”
– Leviticus 23:39
This morning after prayer I walked through the garden to get some pictures and video of the sunrise. The sun rising in the garden is always beautiful, and this morning did not disappoint. Here is a short little video for you to enjoy!
Here is the promised video of Island Breeze dancing in the garden. It was an honor and privilege to film! They are exceptional people and beautiful worshipers, and I’m happy to get to share this with you.
The verse that is coming to mind is Isaiah 43:5 –
5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
I will bring your children from the east
and gather you from the west.
6 I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’
Bring my sons from afar and my daughters
from the ends of the earth—
7 everyone who is called by my name,
whom I created for my glory,
whom I formed and made.”
The Lord has called all nations to come together and worship Him as one, and this past conference was a perfect picture of that coming to fruition. I encourage you to watch the replays and enter in to the awesome worship we had this weekend, and bask in God’s glory as all His people come together as one to praise His name.
I also want to encourage you and declare that each and every one of you has your own unique portion of that worship — each of you has that fervent fire of God inside you. Stand up and open your mouth and let it bubble to the surface! He has called every one of us to worship His name. You needn’t be a singer or dancer to be able to sing or dance in His presence. All worship blesses Him!
And ALL His people cry “GLORY!” Ps. 29:9
It was a busy but wonderful week here at the Global Spheres Center as we had our Head of the Year celebration this past weekend. Hopefully you were able to join in with us – if not, check out the replay schedule on the main website!
One of the things I look most forward to at conferences is seeing the multicultural worship as the nations gather in celebration. It is one of the most moving and beautiful things I have the privilege of witnessing.
Island Breeze was able to join us this weekend, and I had the wonderful opportunity to film them for a video that I’m working on (coming soon!) and took this picture while they were getting ready to dance in the garden. I am so inspired by their culture and the way that they worship!
I am looking forward to sharing the video with you, so stay tuned!
