My heart is raptured as I’m dancing with the word,
He whispers softly things my ear has never heard.
I’m so excited by those things that now my eye can see,
With joy perceiving what His heart reveals to me,
The themes so lovely and my spirits start to soar,
My heart is captured as has never been before.
Enthralled completely with this presence so divine,
My heart is breathless as our spirits intertwine.
His dance is so fantastic and His love is oh so true.
His heart is ever yearning for He longs to dance with you.
Let Him gently lift you He will carry you away,
Your heart now beats in rhythm to the power of His sway.
Filled with such emotion as your mind He will entrance,
Your hearts caught up in glory as with Him you daily dance.
His word is such sweet music let it play and play,
Until your heart is raptured and He carries you away!
Ps. 149:2-Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let THE CHILDREN of ZION be JOYFUL in THEIR KING. (3) Let them PRAISE HIS NAME with THE DANCE; Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp. (4) For the Lord TAKES PLEASURE in HIS PEOPLE; HE WILL BEAUTIFY the HUMBLE with SALVATION.
Is. 64:4-For since the beginning of the world men have NOT HEARD nor perceived by THE EAR, nor has any EYE SEEN any GOD besides YOU, WHO ACTS FOR THE ONE WHO WAITS FOR HIM. Heb.9:28-So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who EAGERLY WAIT FOR HIM HE WILL APPEAR A SECOND TIME apart from sin, FOR SALVATION.
Jere. 31:12-Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of ZION, streaming TO THE GOODNESS of THE LORD—for wheat and new wine and oil, for the young of THE FLOCK and the herd; (Ps. 95:1-Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to THE ROCK of OUR SALVATION. (2) Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. (3) For THE LORD is THE GREAT GOD, and THE GREAT KING above all gods, (4) In His hand are THE DEEP places of THE EARTH; the heights of the hills are His also. (5) The sea IS HIS, for HE MADE IT; and HIS HANDS formed THE DRY LAND. (6) Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before THE LORD our MAKER. (7) For HE IS OUR GOD, and WE ARE THE PEOPLE of HIS PASTURE, and THE SHEEP of HIS HAND.)
Returning to Jere. 31:12-THEIR SOULS shall be like A WELL-WATERED GARDEN, and they shall sorrow no more at all. (13) THEN SHALL THE VIRGIN REJOICE IN THE DANCE, and the young men and the old, together; for I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them REJOICE rather than SORROW. (14) I will satiate the soul of the priest with abundance, and MY PEOPLE shall be SATISFIED with MY GOODNESS, says the Lord.
Is. 52:7-How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who BRINGS GOOD NEWS, WHO PROCLAIMS PEACE, WHO BRINGS GLAD TIDINGS OF GOOD THINGS WHO PROCLAIMS SALVATION, who says TO ZION, “YOUR GOD REIGNS!”(8) Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, with their voices they shall sing together for they SHALL SEE EYE TO EYE WHEN THE LORD BRINGS BACK ZION. (9) Break forth into JOY, SING together, you waste places of Jerusalem! For the Lord has comforted HIS PEOPLE, He has REDEEMED JERUSALEM. (10) The Lord has made bare HIS HOLY ARM, in THE EYES OF ALL THE NATIONS; and ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH SHALL SEE THE SALVATION OF OUR GOD. (11) Depart! Depart! Go out from there, touch no unclean things; Go out from the midst of her, BE CLEAN, (Is. 1:16-WASH YOURSELVES, make yourselves CLEAN; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, (17) LEARN to DO GOOD; seek JUSTICE, REPROVE THE OPPRESSOR; DEFEND THE FATHERLESS, PLEAD FOR THE WIDOW.) (Eph. 5:25-Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved THE CHURCH and GAVE HIMSELF FOR IT, (26) that He might sanctify and CLEANSE IT BY THE WASHING OF THE WATER BY THE WORD.)
Returning to Is. 52:11- you who BEAR THE VESSELS of THE LORD. (12) For you SHALL NOT GO OUT WITH HASTE, NOR GO BY FLIGHT: For the Lord will go before you, AND THE GOD OF ISRAEL WILL BE YOUR REAR GUARD. (15) So SHALL HE SPRINKLE many NATIONS. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; FOR WHAT HAD NOT BEEN TOLD THEM THEY SHALL SEE, AND WHAT THEY HAD NOT HEARD THEY SHALL CONSIDER. (John 17:15-I DO NOT PRAY THAT YOU SHOULD TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD, but that you should KEEP THEM from THE EVIL ONE.
1 Peter 1:2-elect- according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit FOR OBEDIENCE and SPRINKLING of THE BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST; Grace and peace be multiplied. (3) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to HIS ABUNDANT MERCY has BEGOTTEN US AGAIN to A LIVING HOPE THROUGH THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD.
Acts 13:32-And we DECLARE to you GLAD TIDINGS—THAT PROMISE which was MADE TO THE FATHERS. (33) God has fulfilled THIS for US their children, in THAT HE HAS RAISED UP JESUS. As it is also written in the second Psalm: You are My Son, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. Rom. 4:13-For THE PROMISE that HE WOULD BE HEIR OF THE WORLD was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the RIGHTEOUSNESS of FAITH. Gal. 3:29-And IF you are CHRIST’S THEN you are ABRAHAM’S SEED and HEIRS according to THE PROMISE. Gal. 3:13-Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, (14) that THE BLESSING of ABRAHAM might come upon THE GENTILES in Christ Jesus, that we might receive THE PROMISE of THE SPIRIT through FAITH.
Ps. 2:6-Yet I have set My King on my holy hill of ZION. (7) I will DECLARE the DECREE: The Lord has said to Me, You are My Son. Today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) ASK of ME, and I WILL GIVE YOU the nations for YOUR INHERITANCE and THE ENDS OF THE EARTH For YOUR POSSESSION.
John 3:16-For God so LOVED THE WORLD that HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whoever believes IN HIM should not perish but have everlasting life. (17) For God DID NOT SEND His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that THE WORLD THROUGH HIM might BE SAVED. (18) He who believes IN HIM is NOT condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because HE HAS NOT BELIEVED in THE NAME OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON of GOD.
1 John 4:9-In THIS the LOVE of GOD WAS MANIFEST toward us, that GOD HAS SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON INTO THE WORLD, that WE MIGHT LIVE through HIM. (10) In THIS is LOVE, not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (11) Beloved, if God so LOVED us, we also ought to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. (13) By THIS we KNOW that we ABIDE IN HIM and HE IN US, BECAUSE HE HAS GIVEN US OF HIS SPIRIT. (14) And we have SEEN (In the word!) and testify that THE FATHER HAS SENT THE SON AS SAVIOR OF THE WORLD. (15) Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, GOD ABIDES IN HIM,, and GOD IN HIM. (16) And we have known and believed THE LOVE that GOD HAS FOR US. GOD IS LOVE, and HE WHO ABIDES IN LOVE ABIDES IN GOD, and GOD IN HIM. 1 John 5:7-For there ARE THREE who bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and THE HOLY SPIRIT; and THESE THREE agree A ONE.
John 15:7-If you ABIDE in ME, and MY WORDS ABIDE in YOU, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. (8) By THIS My Father is GLORIFIED, that YOU BEAR MUCH FRUIT; so YOU WILL BE MY DISCIPLES. (9) As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; ABIDE IN MY LOVE. John 17:1-Father, the hour has come. GLORIFY Your Son, that Your Son also may GLORIFY YOU. (2) as YOU HAVE GIVEN HIM AUTHORITY OVER ALL FLESH, that He should give eternal life to AS MANY as You have given Him. (3) And THIS is ETERNAL LIFE, that THEY MAY KNOW YOU, the ONLY TRUE GOD, and JESUS CHRIST whom YOU HAVE SENT.
(Some men asked Jesus this question!) John 6:28-Then they said to Him, ‘WHAT SHALL WE DO THAT WE MAY WORK the WORKS of GOD? (29) Jesus answered and said to them, ‘THIS IS the WORK of GOD, that YOU BELIEVE in HIM WHOM HE SENT. (32) but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. (33) For THE BREAD of GOD is HE who comes down from heaven and GIVES LIFE TO THE WORLD. (1 Corin. 3:6-who also made us sufficient as ministers of THE NEW COVENANT, not of the letter but OF THE SPIRIT, for the letter kills, BUT THE SPIRIT GIVES LIFE. (9) For if the ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of RIGHTEOUSNESS exceeds much more IN GLORY. (7) But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, (8) HOW WILL THE MINISTRY OF THE SPIRIT NOT BE MORE GLORIOUS?
1 Corin. 2:9-But as it is written: EYE has NOT SEEN, nor EAR HEARD, nor have entered into THE HEART of man THE THINGS which GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. (10) But GOD HAS REVEALED THEM to us THROUGH THE SPIRIT. For THE SPIRIT searches ALL THINGS, yes, THE DEEP THINGS of GOD. (12) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, BUT THE SPIRIT WHO IS FROM GOD, THAT WE MIGHT KNOW THE THINGS that have BEEN FREELY GIVEN TO US BY GOD. (13) These THINGS we also speak, NOT IN WORDS WHICH MAN’S WISDOM TEACHES but WHICH THE HOLY SPIRIT TEACHES, COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL.
Matt. 28:18-Then Jesus came and spoke to them saying, “ALL AUTHORITY HAS BEEN GIVEN to ME in HEAVEN and ON EARTH. (19) Go therefore and MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL THE NATIONS, baptizing them in the name of THE FATHER and of THE SON and of THE HOLY SPIRIT, (20) teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; AND LO I AM WITH YOU ALWAY, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE EARTH. AMEN (KJV) Rom. 8:32-He who DID NOT SPARE HIS OWN SON, but delivered Him up for US ALL, HOW SHALL HE NOT WITH HIM ALSO FREELY GIVE US ALL THINGS?
Ps. 30:4-Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. (5) FOR HIS ANGER is BUT FOR A MOMENT, HIS FAVOR is FOR LIFE; weeping may endure for a night, but JOY comes in THE MORNING. (6) Now in my prosperity I said, I SHALL NEVER BE MOVED. (7) Lord, BY YOUR FAVOR You have MADE ME STRONG: YOU HID YOUR FACE, and I WAS TROUBLED. (10) HEAR, O Lord and have MERCY on me; LORD, be MY HELPER! (11) YOU HAVE TURNED FOR ME MY MOURNING INTO DANCING; You have put off my sackcloth and CLOTHED ME WITH GLADNESS, (2) TO THE END THAT MY GLORY MAY SING PRAISE TO YOU and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
Is. 49:8-Thus says the Lord: “In an acceptable time I HAVE HEARD YOU, and IN THE DAY OF SALVATION I have HELPED YOU: I will preserve You and give You AS A COVENANT to the people, TO RESTORE THE EARTH, to cause them TO INHERIT the desolate heritages. (6) I WILL ALSO GIVE YOU AS A LIGHT TO THE GENTILES, THAT YOU SHOULD BY MY SALVATION TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH. Acts 3:20-and that HE MAY SEND JESUS CHRIST who WAS PREACHED to you BEFORE, (21) whom heaven must receive UNTIL THE TIMES OF RESORATION OF ALL THINGS, which GOD HAS SPOKEN by the mouth of all His holy prophets SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN. Is. 45:21-Who has DECLARED this from ANCIENT TIME? Who has told it from THAT TIME? Have not I, the Lord? And there is NO OTHER GOD besides ME, a just God and a Savior: There is NONE besides Me. (22) LOOK TO ME, and BE SAVED, ALL YOU ENDS OF THE EARTH! For I am God and there is NO OTHER.
James 5:7-Therefore be patient, brethren, UNTIL THE COMING OF THE LORD. See how the farmer WAITS for THE PRECIOUS FRUIT OF THE EARTH, waiting patiently for it UNTIL IT RECEIVES THE EARLY and THE LATTER RAIN. Is. 45:8-RAIN DOWN you heavens, from above, and let the skies POUR down RIGHTEOUSNESS; let the earth open, LET THEM BRING FORTH SALVATION, and let RIGHTEOUSNESS spring up together. I, the Lord have created it. Pro. 16:14-As messengers of DEATH is the King’s WRATH, but A WISE MAN will APPEASE IT. (15) IN THE LIGHT OF THE KINGS FACE is LIFE, and HIS FAVOR IS LIKE A CLOUD OF THE LATTER RAIN.
Ps. 67:1-God be MERCIFUL to US and BLESS US, and CAUSE HIS FACE TO SHINE UPON US. (2) That YOUR WAY MAY BE KNOWN ON THE EARTH, YOUR SALVATION AMONG ALL NATIONS.
“DANCING WITH THE WORD, BEHOLD HIS GLORY!” John 1:14-AND THE WORD became flesh and dwelt among us, and WE BEHELD HIS GLORY, THE GLORY AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER, FULL of GRACE and TRUTH.
Ps. 2:6-Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of ZION. (7) I will DECLARE the DECREE: The Lord has said to Me, YOU are MY SON, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) ASK OF ME and I WILL GIVE YOU THE NATIONS FOR YOUR INHERITANCE and THE ENDS OF THE EARTH FOR YOUR POSSESSION. 2 Thess.2:13-God from THE BEGINNING chose you FOR SALVATION through sanctification of the ‘Spirit and belief in THE TRUTH. (14) to which He called you by OUR GOSPEL for THE OBTAINING OF THE GLORY of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ps. 93:1-THE LORD REIGNS, HE IS CLOTHED WITH MAJESTY; The Lord is clothed, HE HAS GIRDED HIMSELF WITH STRENGTH. SURELY THE WORLD IS ESTABLISHED, SO THAT IT CANNOT BE MOVED. Ps. 96:10-Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns; THE WORLD ALSO IS FIRMLY ESTABLISHED, IT SHALL NOT BE MOVED; HE SHALL JUDGE THE PEOPLES RIGHTEOUSLY. (13) For HE IS COMING, for HE IS COMING to JUDGE THE EARTH. HE SHALL JUDGE THE WORLD WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS, and the peoples with HIS TRUTH.
Ps. 43:3-Oh, send out YOUR LIGHT and YOUR TRUTH! Let THEM LEAD me; Let THEM bring me TO YOUR HOLY HILL and to YOUR TABERNACLE. Micah 7: 18- He does not retain His anger forever, BECAUSE HE DELIGHTS IN MERCY. James 2:2-MERCY TRIUMPHS OVER JUDGMENT. Jere. 33:11-The voice of joy and the voice of gladness. The VOICE of THE BRIDEGROOM and the VOICE of THE BRIDE, THE VOICE OF THOSE WHO WILL SAY; “PRAISE THE LORD OF HOSTS, FOR THE LORD IS GOOD, FOR HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER---
