It's So Real...

There are people out there who doubt the power of God.
There are people who can't figure out, or rather get uncomfortable with worship and how emotional and intense it gets. I'm sure i've had my moments in the past too.
And as much as they try to convince themselves, i know deep down inside, they Know there is God, one they can't subscribe to because they don't understand the concept of Him.

I watched a video on youtube and it got me all emotional. I was blown away and in awe of the power of God.
How can't it be real? This faith we have in Him. How can't it be true, this salvation we embrace. How can't it be authentic, when people from every tribe and every nation worship Him in spirit and in truth. We couldn't possibly be subscribed to the biggest network of mind control genius that makes people act 'delusional' in the name of worship, and going through persecution for a lie.


These group of South Korean Worshipers remind me that God is awesome, His power is true and real, His grace that releases us to worship is available to ALL, like the words of this song says "....It's the song of the redeemed rising from the African plain. It's the song of the forgiven drowning out the Amazon rain, the song of Asian believers filled with God's holy fire. It's every tribe, every tongue, every nation, a love song born of a grateful choir. It's all God's children singing, "Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns. He reigns." It's all God's children singing, "Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns. He reigns.”
The grace sweeps through the nations and draws people to Him, and from every corner of the earth, His people declare that He reigns.


I just read a book "The Jesus Chronicles: Luke's Story" by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. It hit me while i read... this hope we have, this joy and love spilled from the cross, this fellowship with the Holy Spirit, this access to the Father... this message of salvation that is being passed around today, and still embraced by many even as much as it is rejected, this phenomenon of our faith started in an upper room with a few men and women... And their willingness, and infilling of the Holy Spirit gave them courage and boldness to spread the word... and spread it has, through generations from days of horses to days of planes and computers, the same word is been spread to different people, and the same power is working in different people... "This promise is to you, and to your children, and even to the Gentilest—all who have been called by the Lord our God.” Acts 2:39 It was promised to them then, and it is promised to us now. The word goes on... the question is "are we listening?"

This thing called salvation is the realest thing on earth.
