He handed out gifts above and below, filled heaven with his gifts, filled earth with his gifts. He handed out gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, and pastor-teacher to train Christ’s followers in skilled servant work, working within Christ’s body, the church, until we’re all moving rhythmically and easily with each other, efficient and graceful in response to God’s Son, fully mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ. (Ephesians 4:7-13 MSG)
God has given gifts to the church. Pastor Sharon has the leading of the Spirit, and she has the gifting of the Spirit to be a teacher and an apostle. Pastor John recognised the ministry of a Psalmist upon her. In the time of God, she stepped up to that mantle, and now that mantle is upon her, and she’s operating in it.
⁵ Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord. (Ephesians 5:19 AMPC)
When we speak to one another in psalms and spiritual songs, His presence is among us. He moves among us and is mighty to save.
The Lord said, Prepare My people for the reception of these songs, these sounds, now. Before it’s released, give instructions and bring all the recent fresh new things about sound and song that I’ve given you as well.
The timing of God is everything. These instructions that are coming now, from the Father, from the Son by the Holy Spirit to us, His church at this time, is going to bring about tremendous change in all of us.
There’s been a massive change and a shift in the Spirit. It happens in the hearts of the people.
We will have to become more different. Everything that’s going to dramatically change is going to dramatically change in us.
There is a flow, there is a grace, there is an inheritance of the Holy Spirit, there is a promise of the Holy Spirit that is here for us. It’s time, it’s time now for us to change, it’s time for us to be brave enough to be bold enough to be courageous.
Because of personal time spent with the Lord, singing to the Lord in the morning, being obedient to the Lord and staying in the sound God wanted her to stay in, Pastor Sharon now operates as the Chief Psalmist in our ministry.
Singing from the Spirit, interpreting the mood of the Holy Spirit accurately, bringing from Heaven to the people the sound of Heaven.
With many of the songs in the church today, you have an interactive soul experience. The soul is not the Spirit. That’s why God is wanting His Music Ministry here in this Ecclesia to be spiritual because He’s preparing a people for Himself to be spiritual. And that comes through the spiritual messages that come from the pulpit and it comes through the spiritual Sound and Song that comes to us.
Music is ethereal, it’s not tangible. Once the music is sung out into the realm of the spirit, it goes on and on and on and on.
You may still hear people play songs in the natural world, but in the spirit realm, He’s found an Ecclesia that will give Him obedience where He can bring spiritual sounds out into the realm and He will occupy the spirit realm dimensions that has not been occupied.
13 The sun stood still and the moon stayed. 14 And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the Lord hearkened unto the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel. (Joshua 10:12-14 KJV)
The Lord hearkened unto the voice of man. He draws you with the message that comes but He draws you too with the sounds and the songs, hallelujah, He draws you to Jesus.
He uses songs and sounds to heal when they come from Heaven when they come from Him.
Songs of Psalms comes now because it’s in obedience to the invitation of the Holy Spirit, in combination and conjunction with the inspired declaration that came out of Pastor John of what these songs would do.
People will give up their old ways and come into the new
Depression will leave
Oppression will leave
I declare, Father, that people will see the light and freedom in the name of Jesus
That these songs will be songs of light
Penetrate the darkness of the human mind
Penetrate the darkness of the soul
Penetrate the darkness of depression and oppression
Penetrate the darkness of all kinds of manners of sickness and disease
Penetrate the darkness of poverty
Penetrate the darkness of religious spirits, of all kinds of all ways that men have turned against God
It will go forth and accomplish what You have sent the sound out for, Father
