Psalm 96:9 – Worship Yahoah being adorned with holiness; tremble before Him all the Earth.
There is a glorious fellowship with the Lord that each person should come to know. It is a fellowship that takes place in worship. The Holy Spirit wants to fill our worship with awe and revelation of God and His ways. If we will make worship the sacred interaction with God that it should be, then we will see a greater manifestation of His glory. Worship must become a deep expression of hunger to fellowship with God. In this deep desire to know Him, we will be filled to overflowing with His Presence. True worship only takes place by the Spirit of Holiness (John 4:23; Philippians 3:3). It is a holy communion that we enter into by the Holy Spirit, and by a true and sincere heart. If we are willing to come into the Presence of the Lord and drink of the waters of life, then we will be filled with prophetic songs and hymns and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:18-19; John 4:14, 7:37-38).
The Holy Ghost desires to clothe us with the garments of praise, and produce within us a holy fellowship of worship that causes our hearts to be yielded to the Presence of God. As we yield to Him, we are adorned with the splendor of His glory, and filled with the beauty of His Presence. In worship, the Holy Spirit translates us to a place where all earthly things disappear. Here in the Holiest of Holies – where nothing but God exists – we find ourselves engaged in true worship. Being adorned with holiness and raptured by the Spirit, our mouths become filled with praise and our hearts begin to tremble. In the beauty of holiness, we find a place among all of those who cry out continually: “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord; the whole Earth is filled with His glory!” (Hebrews 12:14; Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8; Exodus 28:36). Here our eyes are opened to all His hands have made. In this place of glory, our hearts are filled with understanding and revelation in the knowledge of Him.
