"2013 The Year of Transformation"
Greetings From Bishop and Pastor Williams
Healthy Nuggets From Sunday's Sermon Entitled "So You Think You Can Dance," by Bishop Rick Williams Sr.
TV show called "So You Think You Can Dance?"
There are things happening where people think they can dance.
Dance: Move to a rhythmic sound
Everyone thinks they can dance
Dance also means to wait
Some people can dance.
Some in the bible THOUGHT they could dance.
Isaiah 14- Lucifer; morning star; when he moved music came out of him. The devil is the bright and morning star he perpetrates as an angel of light
Sometimes we move because of what people say about us.
Lucifer thought he could dance. He listened to his own self existance; He thought he could ascend unto the place of God.
Everyones hearing music over their head.. people say look at them thats cute.
When we hear music we begin to respond to the music and move
There is a certain way to dance.
Family may say thats cute but the judge will want to know do you have the desire to dance.
Without desire youll never be a great dancer.
When you have the desire you will practice.
God has spoken to you yet you dont have the desire.
You ask for things yet you dont know what youre asking for.
Lucifer wanted to be AS God.
Some think they can dance but get voted off because they thought they could dance.
Just because someone says you can dance doesn't mean that you can .
You need instructions.
Your whole dance routine must have discipline.
You must have in anticipation.
You must be present/ in attendance.
You must hear what they are saying to you.
You cant be here then not be here.
We must be here when we are here not preoccupied with phone, text, asleep etc.
You must be attentive.
You must be disciplined.
The dance is there but you must perfect it.
God is saying you are doing it perfectly the way you said do it.
Lucifer allowed lawlessness/iniquity to come inside him.
God just thought things and it came to pass.
Lucifer wanted his throne to be higher than his.
There are consequences to iniquity and when God says do it but you do differently.
God wants you to stay where you are sent.
Miracles happen after instructions.
Example: Vessels with oil
So does the dance come after instruction
You must desire anticipation
You must have confidence- Faith
Must have conscience to do it.
What are your notions?
You must be in alignment.
We all think we have the goods.
Sometimes we dont understand what we are asking for
The call of God will kill you.
God has a pattern. You cant have it both ways.
You have to do it the right way. Whats causing you to move? You must sit still and let God do it for you.
You must do like he did. Still away like he did. When you dance you must pray and do what it takes.
You cant conform.
Some think they can dance because of what others told them.
If you cant be faithful in least you cant be faithful over much.
You dont have luxury of being their unless you make the sacrifices. If you are not serving you have no juice.
Minister means servant.
You wanna dance but you dont know what youre asking for.
We sit in judgement but we dont know the whole story.
The Lord says you cant come up here with me I need a faithul servant.
When your dancing is the Lord your partner?
Enoch walked with God.
We are so busy doing our own thing we cant hear God.
We must seek Gods face.
Its time out for pride.
We arent nothing apart from God.
Are you anticipating move of God?
Will you be like Lucifer or be humbled?
You must get into alignment be disciplined.
You must be corrected now so that when you get sent out in the world you wont get hurt and pimped out.
Follow me as I follow God.
Sometimes the person you are dancing with will try to seduce you.
The wind will blow floods will come..make sure you are not dancing with Lucifer.
Difference between went and sent is having the blessing and just being sent.
What song are you dancing to?
We think we are our own but we are just stewards we are not our own.
