Island Breeze Worships in the Garden

Hello all!

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

Be blessed!
Tracey

    Tracey, I love the videos you are doing…but your words also bless me. I am so in awe of what God is doing with you and in you. Blessings back to you…what a jewel you are in the Kingdom of God!

  3. Wow. It is so different from what I am used to, it is FOREIGN to me. It makes me uncomfortable at points. But that is also the beauty of it. The Lord has so many people in so many cultures and expressions. Missions in the past suppressed the cultural expressions in favor of the cultural forms of those bringing the gospel. But the peoples themselves, as believers, know how to redeem the forms to worship God in Spirit and truth. It is great that we are at a stage in history in which the Lord is reconciling all things to Himself. I am so grateful for the vision of Glory of Zion and Global Spheres for the healing of the nations, and Christ blessing all the families of the earth.

  10. I dream of worshipping my King like this as I am in a wheelchair and long to dance with my Lord.

      You CAN dance with the lover of your soul. Limited movement is still movement. A heart of worship can be manifest from a wheelchair. I’ve seen it before… lifted arms, lifted eyes and a bowed heart… all together lovely. He’s waiting….

      Hello sister! As a praise dancer myself, I express a lot through the hands, arms and facial expression, as is evidenced in this video. I don’t know you or if you do this at all…..if not I would encourage you to start! It is so freeing!

    We celebrate in Spirit and in Truth and in dance and in solitude. Aloha and Mahalo

    The dancing of Island Breeze is so beautiful and haunting. I see them dance and I feel the passion they have for the Lord even though I am thousands of miles away. I am blessed by the time in the garden.

    Absolutely Beautiful, the expressions of worship to the Lord our God is amazing! I am curious as to what does the design on the bottom lip of the worshippers mean ?

    • From Celestine:

      The design on Victoria’s chin is a ‘Moko’; a Maori identification of what tribe you come from. Kind of like your ancestry.

    That was beautiful AND anointed! Tastefully videoed….I agree with Leroy Whitman’s comment especially. And I would like to take it a step further and say that I hope there will be some teachings on some of their use of the hip and shoulder movements in their dance. As a praise dancer myself, that is an area we are discouraged to avoid moving. As it flowed in the dance, I did not find it offensive…only giving rise to wanting to LEARN MORE! The hand and feet movements added a lot – as did the facial expressions! I would also like to know about the worship tool on the string…..POWERFUL! THANK & PRAISE YOU, ADONAI FOR BRINGING US TOGETHER IN SUCH A WAY FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS! Just another way this ministry STRONGLY IMPACTS MY LIFE!

      The ‘Poi Balls’ that you saw in the video are a Maori weapon we use to express the spiritual warfare involved in worship.

    I’m so blessed to see them dancing before the King of the nations! I also had the chance to dance with my banner on the same spot of the Israel Garden during the last day of the Passover conference in March. Two years ago,the Lord told me to dance in this garden…and He made a way for us to visit GOZ….and I danced before Him in a new way! Hope to see more people from other nations dancing on that same spot. This garden is such an oasis! Glory to you Lord!

    Anna Roundtree (in the “The Priestly Bride”) shares from her “spirit -travels” into Heaven that there are times when the dancers/worshippers are invited to come and dance to their purest delight, on the sea of glass before the very Throne of God. Sometimes it’s only the children, other times it’s whosoever will. Thank you for this little glimpse into a slice of Heaven on Earth. I will meet you dancers on Heaven’s dance floor and get as much practice in as possible in the meanwhile on earth’s dance floors.
    Thank you Island Breeze for opening up the Garden Worship even the more, absolutely inspiring!!! And did anyone notice the new “Breeze Moves” Broski Keith is developing!!!? You go brother! Are we havin’ fun yet?

  22. This is such a beautiful and well done video, what a blessing you are Tracey. This is my favorite song by James Vincent, and the Hawaiians take it to a whole nother level!

    The hand and body motions so express the fervent and flowing passion of their worship!
    The Lord is truly worshiped and praised as expressed in this cultural dance.

  24. Beautyful….. BUT…. would soooo like to SEE the dances, not only fragments or one movement here and there….so maybe an other one soon where we can enjoy ( and maybe even learn 🙂 ) movements …. Thank you, Hawaiian sisters and brother for adding to the flavour and enlargening our horizont!
    Be blessed and multiply!

    I love the various forms of dance as an expression of worship. Unfortunately, I was a bit frustrated by the video because the camera moved around so much. I wanted to actually watch the dance and see what they were expressing with their moves. The camera often allows us to see more of the dance itself during the worship services.

    • Helen –

      Thank you for your comments. When we film dancers during worship, we are trying to let other people experience what we are experiencing here on site. This video, however, is an artistic expression of worship in the garden, so the focus is not on the dance itself, but on the worship being expressed through their hands, their facial expressions and their footsteps. Perhaps one day we can provide instructional video through the Glory of Zion website.

  26. THANK YOU so much for posting this. The worship at HOTY was so amazing – my spirit is still waking me at night singing! And the Hawaiians added so much beauty and holiness to the event. How blessed to be part of an Apostolic church!

    This is so amazing and beautiful. They are a part of the Garden, yes with their worship and dance. Can we keep them?? I love you all and thank you for the creative work the Lord is releasing through you. What an absolute joy to be in the Garden and to have you remind us of that joy, each time you send us an update.

    Thank you Island Breeze for sharing your unigue expression of worship in dance to the Lover of our soul!!! I am of Indian and African descent and it is was of wonderful and delightful to see that He has created each one us to worship and praise in so many unique ways with abandonment and joy.

    Thank you Tracy for capturing this in the Garden……….I felt as if I was there with you all.

    Thank you James for expressing the heart of Him who has promised to be with us always. This is one of my favorite songs. How do I get of cd of it?

    I attend GOZ via the web but did not know this video or garden website existed. However, the LORD lead me to it this morning to worship Him. What beauty in worship in song, dance, …in spirit and in truth….utter beauty reflecting His Glory. Thank you GOZ for recording and posting this video.
