One Thing 10/1/13
John 4:23 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers (Adorers) will worship (adore) God in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers.
Song 1:12 ¶ “While the king was at his table,
My perfume gave forth its fragrance.
The table in Song of Solomon, like in other places in scripture, speaks of the place of intimacy and fellowship. It’s where the King reposes and communes with His Beloved. In that place of Presence we respond in worship (adoration). God is looking for Adorers, not Workers. I’m not referring to singing, or music, though that can be an outlet; instead, I’m referring to Lovers, whose heart sing and make melody to The Lord. The enemy of our souls was once a worship leader before his fall, and He hates and is terrorized by the mutual affection of lovesick bride, and lovesick God. The Divine Madness, that Paul refers to in 2 Corinthians 5:14 devastates Satan. The most powerful act of spiritual warfare you can ever engage in is to so love Jesus that your fragrant worship; your adoration, and affection. comes forth, filling the atmosphere. This happened when Mary of Bethany broke the alabaster vial of Spikenard (perfume, in S.S 1:12 is the Hebrew word forspikenard) in surrendered devotion to Christ, when she washed His feet with the tears of her love-smitten heart. In that environment of Holy Affection she was freed from seven demons, because the powers of darkness flee before the Holy Romance. This will help us understand better Psalm 23 when He says He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies. The greatest warrior in The Kingdom is actually the greatest lover.
