Just do it!

My brother Michael Fackerell says:

“I love being part of a church plant where we can actually concentrate on what the Holy Spirit is doing rather than going through a traditional contemporary church/nominal pentecostal liturgy. This way, we are thrilled with the presence of God each time and we see lives changed. Maybe its time to stop pretending that all is well and that we can do all this church stuff without really changing at a profound level, and that God is satisfied.”

My sentiments exactly! We want a NT church which is led by the Holy Spirit in the same way that the original 1st century churches were led by the Spirit, with the same understanding and practice of assembling together as they had.

Do this:

“How is it then, brethren? when you come together, every one of you has a psalm, has a doctrine, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that in turn; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God. Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the others judge. If anything be revealed to another that sits by, let the first hold his peace. For you may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” (1 Cor. 14:26-33)

Just do this. These are the commands of God for His church! This is the way He wants it. Note the total dependency on the empowering, leading and direction of the Holy Spirit. Preaching is supposed to be prophesying under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. And anyone can prophesy in the assembly. Anyone.

Anyone can bring forth a psalm, a teaching, a tongue, a revelation, or an interpretation. Anyone can lead the assembly in a song or a prayer.
