Gospel lyrics and our spiritual worship 2
There are songs you will stop singing when revelation comes. There are expressions you will stop using when revelation comes. Let me give a few.
Have you heard people say “let’s lift Jesus higher or lift him up”
And we sing the song expecting the intensity of our singing to do the lifting.
That expression is faulty. We cannot do anything to lift Jesus higher! He is already lifted high!
Philippians 2:9 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father.”
God has highly exalted him!
Jesus is higher than height!
Acts 2:33 “Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.”
He is at the right hand of God-exalted!
HE is already lifted.
We are to sing in songs acknowledging who is and where he is.
Infact “giving thanks” actually means to” agree with what God has said about who he is and what he has done”
Hebrews 13:15 “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
To give thanks is the Greek “homologeo” it means to say the same as. So when we give thanks what we are actually doing is to agree with the truth of scripture and not elevate our experiences.
So we don’t lift Jesus higher. He is already lifted high. The only thing singing lift him high or higher does is to help us lift him in our own consciousness. It helps us see him lifted. However, I choose to sing the word. He is lifted high and exalted. As I sing he is lifted high, I see him as he is lifted high!
We must sing according to the revelation of the risen Christ shown in the epistles!
As we do this, the glory will get stronger in manifestation!
CONFESSION: I sing songs that are consistent with the revelation of Christ. I sing as He is, in His exalted position.
