Are You Ready to Gather with Others, are you Ready to Meet with the Lord?    By David Nelson   (10-15-07) 

Introduction: Are you longing to experience real revival with the Lord and join together with others who have the same desire? What would the meetings be like if the Lord were to come more and more and His glory increased in the place where we meet with others? I have tasted of some tremendous meetings with music from the Lord, spiritual gifts coming forth from various people, wonderful sharing with each other, rich prayer, revelations, prophecies, and basking in the presence of the Lord.

If you are already experiencing some degree of revival meetings and want to go deeper, or you are just beginning revival meetings, or you have not even begun to meet with others but you really desire to begin seeking the Lord in a corporate setting, then hear this call from the Lord and meditate on the verses that follow. I believe this will help make your heart ready to seek Him with others. 

A Call from the Lord: You may need to prepare your hearts for 3 days like the people at Mt. Sinai did. They had to go up where He is or we have to get ready for Him to come down to where we are. He is calling us to Himself. We will see Him and sup with Him. Can we come together as one man with one heart to welcome Him, enthrone Him, and meet with Him? He wants to talk with us and to us and He wants us to talk with Him.

He will come to us more and more if we will seek Him more and more. His anointing and His presence will increase in our meetings each day if we are prepared, and if we prepare a place for Him in our hearts and in our midst. 

Let us anticipate, expect, ready ourselves, pray to be ready, pray that He will show us how to be ready to meet together and meet with Him. Also pray that He will bless all your future gatherings and guide your gatherings 100 %. After a time, it will no longer just be “meeting times,” but He will be with us and move among us 24 hours a day.

Verses to prepare our hearts:

Exodus 19:4:   Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.

Exodus 19:9-11:   And the Lord said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee…. And Moses told the words of the people unto the Lord. And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes, and be ready against the 3rd day: for the third day the Lord will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

Exodus 19:17:   And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; *(10 more Scripture passages to follow)

Exodus 20:21:   And the people stood afar off (and said, You speak to us Moses, let not God speak to us (Vs. 19)) and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.

Exodus 20:24:   in all places where I record My name and cause it to be remembered I will come to you and bless you. (or in every place where I cause My name to be remembered or wherever I cause My name to be honored, I will come….)

Exodus 24:1, 9-11:   And He said unto Moses, Come up unto the Lord, thou (and 3 others mentioned by name, plus 70 of the elders of Israel) and worship ye afar off. Then went up Moses (and 3 others named, plus Joshua (vs. 13), and the 70 elders) and they saw the God of Israel: and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He laid not His hand (to conceal himself, to rebuke their daring, or to harm them (Amplified Bible)) also they saw God, and did eat and drink.

Revelation 3:20:   Behold I stand at the door and knock, if any man hear my voice and open the door I will come in to him and sup with him and he with me.

Exodus 25:22:   (At the mercy seat) And there will I meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat from between the two cherubims….I will speak intimately with you of all which I will give you in commandment for the sons of Israel. 

Exodus 29:42-46:   This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation (Tent of Meeting) before the Lord: where I will meet with you, to speak there unto thee. And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory. And I will dwell among the children of Israel and will be their God. And they shall know (from personal experience (Amplified Bible)) that I am the Lord their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the Lord their God.

II Chronicles 29:31, 34-36:   Then Hezekiah answered and said, Now ye have consecrated yourselves unto the Lord, come near and bring sacrifices and thank offerings into the house of the Lord. And the congregation brought (these); and as many as were of a free (or willing) heart burnt offerings. But the priests were too few, so that they could not flay all the burnt offerings: wherefore their brethren the Levites did help them, till the work was ended, and until other priests had sanctified themselves: for the Levites were more upright in heart to sanctify themselves than the priests. So the service of the house of the Lord was set in order. And Hezekiah rejoiced, and all the people, that God had prepared the people: for the thing was done suddenly.

II Chronicles 30:10-12:   So the posts (postmen) passed from city to city…(with the letter of invitation) but they laughed them to scorn and mocked them. Nevertheless a few humbled themselves and came to Jerusalem. Also in Judah the hand of God was to give them one heart to do the command of the king and of the princes, by the word of the Lord.

II Chronicles 30:18-23, 26,& 27: For a multitude of the people…had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the Passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed (interceded) for them, saying, The good Lord pardon everyone that prepares his heart (or sets his heart) to seek God, the Lord God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary. So there was a great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon…there was not the like in Jerusalem. Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to His holy dwellingplace, even unto heaven.

Judges 20:1,2 & 8-11:   Then all the children of Israel went out, and the congregation was gathered together as one man, from Dan to Beersheba, with the land of Gilead, unto the Lord at Mizpah. And the chief of all the people, even of all the tribes of Israel, presented themselves in the assembly of the people of God…. And all the people arose as one man, saying, We will not any of us go into his tent, neither will we any of us turn into his house. But now this shall be the thing which we will do to Gibeah; we will go up by lot against it; So all the men of Israel were gathered against the city, knit together as one man.
