“I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago-whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows-such a man was caught up to the third heaven.
And I know such a man-whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows-
Was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak. (2 Cor. 12:2-4 NAS)
I got to thinking about Linda’s word Sunday, pertaining to the Lord being pleased with us and showing that thru the prophetic drumming of Brent…
It was kind of obvious that there was something unique and prophetic happening amongst all the musicians, I think we all felt it and all responded to it, but especially Brent as he played the drums.
This is starting to happen more and more.
Which brings up the question (as did Linda this Tuesday during worship practice) “What does it mean when they prophesy on the instruments?”
Again we are working without a net here, I simply do not know.
I know it when it happens.
I’ve been in services where I heard it…
I know when it happens TO me, and the prophetic seems to play THRU me…
But as Linda asked, “What does the prophecy mean?”
What does it mean when the Lord moves upon a musician and they begin to improvise or launch out musically where they did not intentionally plan to go?
One of the songs on our “to learn” list is Chris Tomlins “Indescribable“…and the song details the inability we have to communicate all that God is…
Do you suppose that in some way God has the same problem we do?
Oh yeah I know He’s omnipotent and all, I’m not suggesting the circular logic of the Simpson’s where Homer ask “Could Jesus microwave a burrito so hot He couldn’t eat it?”
I’m not playing word games with Gods ability, but the reality exist that God has limited the way He communicates with us (my theory is that its for our own good He has placed limits on Himself) to some rather simple protocols and process’s that we still manage to mangle and misuse.
Has it occurred to anyone else that God may simply be trying to use each and every aspect of our environment to show His fondness and profound love, so much so that He will invade our culture and even our own worship to DEMONSTRATE His reach?
At this point I really don’t know if we need to know what the prophesy might say thru the instrumentalist as long as we start hearing the message that God is invading “our” worship time and sitting in on drums…or keys…or guitar…
Think about it a minute…. the guy that invented sound itself…sat in on drums Sunday.
That is enough for me, He don’t gotta say anything else….just showing up at our little gathering and picking up a set of drumsticks while we were searching for Him in our singing should set out hearts quivering…
It’s kind of inexpressible.
