Supernaturally Natural: Rethink The Way We, The Church, Worships Corporately – Part XIV
from Supernaturally Natural: Chapter 15 manuscript by Anthony Bachman
Another mindset to rethink: Only trained musicians can write and produce new music.
Wrong. When a New Testament Priest enters the Holy of Holies, the Presence of God, giving sacrifices of praise musically, they just may come out of that experience with a “New Song”.
The book of Revelation again highlights worship filled with singing “New Songs”. When in His Presence, the believer, the priest, gives back to the Lord God what he has given to his believer or priest. If singing a Sacrifice of Praise, a vocal confession in song, a new tune with new lyrics, may be created by the Creator himself, for “I AM your Creator”. We can sing the “Song to the Lamb”, or the “Song of Forgiveness”, or the “Song of our Healing”, or the Song of Deliverance, or the Song of Promise Fulfilled, or the Song of a Savior. They are all new songs.
I feel the Church has yet to tap into this rich resource of supernatural worshiping power. As the Lord God Almighty continues to reveal himself to us, new songs will become the supernaturally natural flow of Holy Spirit orchestrated music.
Also what the church naturally thinks of Special Music will also be put under the scrutiny of our mindset microscope. Usually “Special Music” came as natural progression in the order of worship prior to the sermon. It naturally consisted of very talented singers with impressive voices that would “entertain” us with the talents. If you were a monotone, you could not even make the mass choir, might as well being featured as “Special Music”.
At Parkesburg, I was impressed one Saturday night, when a young lady became “special music” that night. She came to the podium and sang the “Lord’s Prayer” in a new tune, one that I had never heard before, nor has heard since, but it was gorgeous. It was her “new song” that she was giving back to her Creator, Jesus as an act of true worship! She did not know there was any other version of that prayer other than hers. Now she gave it back as worship. Her act of worship caused the rest of the believers present to also enter back into the flow of worship, back into the flow of corporate Body Worship as Priesthood.
