The Beauty Of God And His (tangible) Manifest Presence-thinkpad s230u

Religion I have seen a son of Jesse who plays skillfully, a valiant, a man of war, prudent in speech an attractive person (1 Sam. 16:18 Amp). Davids sixth quality was his attractiveness. This reveals not only to his outer appearance but a deeper beauty, one that comes from the heart. What makes a person really attractive? As you may have found, people can be good looking externally but ugly, selfish and unpleasant in their attitude. On the contrary, someone with a beautiful heart is full of freshness and life, inspiring and transmitting the love of God to those around him. Davids beauty was not his own; it stemmed from God whom he loved: One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple (Ps. 27: 4, NIV). David sought passionately to be in the presence of the Lord beholding His beauty. As a result, the beauty of God stayed with him and began to show, making him attractive, different beautiful. The (Tangible) Manifest Presence of God I have seen a son of Jesse who plays skillfully, a valiant, a man of war, prudent in speech an attractive person, and The Lord is with him (1 Sam. 16:18, Amp). Young Davids last virtue was the presence of God. Jehovah was with him; not a small thing. The Lords presence took this shepherd boy from the forgotten fields of Bethlehem to the throne of Israel; it filled his songs with the atmosphere of heaven and conquered all his enemies. I believe this is a fair and true test for ministers. Is the Lord with us? I do not mean the omnipresence of God, nor do I mean the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit (which is with every born again believer). What I mean is the tangible, manifest felt presence of God. In our ministrybehind a pulpit, a guitar or in the market placecan others say about us what Sauls servant said about David? Is the Lord with us? Can people encounter God when they encounter us? Can they hear His voice when they encounter our work? Whatever the case, it would be wise to adopt Davids longing and make it ours. Because the beauty that is gazed upon will eventually show. Look again to Davids magnificent obsession: One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple (Ps. 27: 4, NIV). The Branch of the Lord: Beautiful and Glorious In that day the Branch of the Lord shall be beautiful and glorious; and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and appealing (Is. 4:2) The Branch of the Lord is a messianic title for Jesusthe perfect manifestation of the Fathers glory and beauty. We are swiftly approaching the day when the Lord will unveil His beauty to the nations the stadiums and open fields around the world will be filled with multitudes of lovesick worshipersmillions of people singing songs to the Lover of their soulsthe Man Christ Jesus. The Branch of the Lord is presently branching out through a global prayer and worship movement. This will increase in the years to come, the music and songs from heaven will sweep across the earth, and a multicultural generation of prophetic worshipers will portray Gods beauty and glory to the nations.
