A Time to Dance

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2:17

I ran into a good and Godly friend Saturday night at a Southern Gospel concert at her church.  We got talking about music and I recommended she listen to Fernando Ortega and Sons of Korah

Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord.. Ephesians 5:19

both of which she had not heard of before.  Later this week she came to mind again, and so I sent her a link to Youtube to this particular song by Fernando Ortega…

Everything has its own time, and there is a specific time for every activity under heaven:  a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pull out what was planted,  a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build up,  a time to cry and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…  Ecc 3:1-4

As I sat here at my computer listening to it to make sure it was all good I closed my eyes and immediately I had a vision of Jesus sweeping me up in His arms to dance.  I tried to open my eyes after a few seconds, but the Spirit would not let me.  He held me transfixed as we danced the entire song.

Then maidens will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.      Jer 31:13

Sigh.

My heart swelled with freedom, joy, love, and peace.

That Jesus would dance with me.

Wow.

And His white robes swirled around me enveloping my sight.  All I could see was just beautiful, startlingly white linen and my beautiful perfect God dancing with me.

I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel. Again you will take up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful. Jer 31:4

This experience brought to mind another song.

Abba Father, Oh Lord, you are so good to me, and, to think, I do not deserve anything but your wrath and condemnation.  Thank you for dancing with death and the devil on the cross, and then rising again to make a way for me back into your waiting arms to dance!  You say that my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at your tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.  Thank you that during that time of singing and making music you stepped down to dance with me in your most dear sweet Holy Spirit.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
