Continual Worship - Worship in the End Times - Part 4Oct 08, 2022
‘There’s coming a time in the church when it won’t rest; day and night congregations will get together in shifts, because they want to, and worship Him.’
I am about to paint a picture of the Church that is in embryonic stage but by the way things are going in the world may not be too far off from being birthed. I saw this way back in the eighties and have not changed my position about it. I still believe God’s presence is going to change everything within the Church and impact everything beyond it before the Church is raptured.
In the time of King David and for some time after, worship was given to God continually, and was highly organised into groups of musicians and singers who took shifts to minister before the Lord both day and night (1 Chronicles 16:37; Psalm 95:2, 100:2). It is thought by many commentators it was twenty-four hours a day using musical instruments accompanied with joyful singing and thanksgiving as a response to God’s presence in their midst.
1 Chronicles 9:33
These are the singers, heads of the fathers’ houses of the Levites, who lodged in the chambers, and were free from other duties; for they were employed in that work both day and night.
It’s highly possible we will soon see a return of continual worship in local churches around the world, not because of organised twenty-four-hour worship events, but as a response to His presence in our midst. Continual worship will become so prevalent that it will seem strange to think there was a time when we limited it to Sunday services and church buildings.
Christians will consistently pursue the presence of God in their homes and churches. The testimony of His presence and power will draw unbelievers to the church. They will also be drawn because of the signs and wonders commonly associated with those who love Jesus.
And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues
God’s presence and healing power operating through the saints will draw the multitudes.
As well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.
Imagine such a hunger and thirst for the presence of God that our church buildings and places of fellowship will not be able to contain those who desire to worship Him. Church as we know it today will take on a different format to accommodate the worshipers. Churches will have to remain open literally day and night to accommodate the worship given to God. No other church activity will engage congregations quite like worship. This will be accompanied by prayer and spill out into the streets with signs and wonders as demonstration of God’s powerful presence and His love for mankind. In fact, many of the weekly meetings and other activities we participate in at present will give way to worship and prayer meetings as a response to God’s presence. All this will take place because of the desire believers will have to spend time in His presence and receive the benefits He offers.
The key partners of prayer and praise, worship and intimacy, reverence and godly fear will be much more evident in our meetings. Prayer warriors will partner with worshipers in local churches and prepare the spiritual atmosphere for corporate gatherings. They will blanket our communities; towns and cities with His presence and evangelists will come forth like Lazarus from the grave. Seemingly ‘dead’ ministry evangelists will arise with resurrection power. Like Elijah of old they will walk in a place of supernatural accomplishments by the Word of God that they carry in their mouths (1 Kings 17:24). The enemy will not be able to contradict or resist.
1 Kings 17:24
Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now by this I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the Lord in your mouth is the truth.”
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.
‘All things are possible’ will be the order of the day and nothing will be withheld from those who are sold out to His presence and His kingdom. The miraculous will be demonstrated in abundance to meet people’s needs. The reverential fear of God will dominate our meetings, mixed with exuberant joy and thanksgiving. Out of this will emerge wisdom operating through ordinary people such, as we have not seen since the time of Solomon. The church will lead the way in many fields and God’s people will be sought out for their wisdom.
