Sid: Now I have a book titled “Worship Warrior” by Chuck Pierce. I’m speaking to him at his office in Denton, Texas and I have to tell you after reading your book Chuck I put a worship CD on and as a matter of fact I did this last night. And I turned the lights down and I was in a room by myself and I just raised my hands and I started worshiping God. And of course I’d just read in your book about this whole concept of ascension of ascending but this wasn’t my imagination. In my mind’s eye I saw some angels, now I’d never seen that before is that unusual?
Chuck: Well, I don’t think it’s unusual because I think when we worship Sid we go into a dimension that is available to each one of us. And what we began to see is that the Lord of Host that He has available to us. And worship is the whole key to that, and it is such a blessing to be talking to you you know and I think one of things that knit us together in Israel at Rosh Hashanah was we were worshiping and this contexts of gathering of the nations. And the Spirit of God just came down and brought us you could just feel the Spirit of God and you could just feel revelation coming down. And when you worship I want to say to you listeners this ministry first of all that Sid has is worth supporting, worth being a part of. And then I want to say this, “When we worship we go to a place our spirit is positioned properly in the heavens and then all the blessings in heavenly places we have access to. Now there’s a verse that always come to mind that when you introduce your show that we’re doing right now. And you’re saying “Welcome family, there’s a trumpet going to sound.” I love the verse in Revelations chapter 4 it says “After these things I looked and behold a door standing open in heaven.” Now this is where the Lord had revealed Himself to John. And you want to find out what does it mean “After these things.” Because God had come down on Patmos Island revealed Himself to John and then He spoke to John about the 7 key churches of that region. And he did 5 things and if you’re listening you can get an understanding of this what God will do while you’re worshiping. We find that the book of Revelation is an entire book of worship and something that we will experience in days ahead but it’s personal as well as futuristic. And so I want to explain this to each one of us personally right now. He came down and He told John He said “Here’s what these churches have been doing well.” And God always if you’ll start worshipping God and some of you might think that you’re separated from God but if you’ll start worshiping Him the Lord will remind you of His plan for you. And He’ll remind you of how you have pursued Him in the past but then what He will begin to…notice what He did with the churches He put His finger on the things they haven’t been doing well. A lot of time God will do that the Second Thing: He’ll say “Now this is what you’ve not done that would bring you into a more full plan that I have for you. The Third Thing: He did was He instructed each one of those churches. Well, He’ll do the same for you when you worship Him. And in the Fourth Thing: That He did was He said “Let me remind you of the promises I have and if you will listen by the Spirit of what I’m saying to the church right now you’ll hear.” God does that with His covenant people, He does it with Israel, His inheritance; He does it with the people who will…He has this special covenant with Israel but then when you come to know Him you’re grafted into that covenant and He’s ready to talk with you, He’s ready to commune with you. And here what I love about this scripture it says “A door was standing open in heaven and the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking to me saying ‘Come up here and I’ll show you things which must take place after this.’ In other words not only will I reveal to you what I’m saying to you today but I’ll show you what’s going to happen in the future.” And that’s why I think this book is so important for us right now because it brings us to a new place of worship where not only we can experience God’s host of heaven in our midst now but He can also open our eyes to where we’re going.
Sid: Listen, with what is going on as far as terrorism worldwide. What we know with all of the warning alerts we have all the time will happen right in this nation. I have friends that live in Israel and they say that before they go out anywhere they pray and if they feel a check in their spirit they don’t even go out. I mean if there’s ever been a generation that has to get in touch with God and has to hear God’s voice it’s us.
Chuck: Listen Sid I believe that if we’re worshipers and I say worship from a true concept. I don’t mean people who just get in that place and just they don’t understand how to walk in the earth. I believe if you learn how to come into the throne room you’ll know how to walk in the earth realm. And so I also know this if you get to know the presence of God you’ll know where His presence is not and your spirit will say. Your spirit filled with the Holy Spirit will say to you “Go a different way.” And so it’s very important right now that we get familiar with the throne room and then how we need to walk in the earth realm.
Sid: Now Chuck you’re a very prophetic type of person how’s worship connected with the prophetic.
Chuck: Well, the prophetic means this it simply means…I got another book called “When God Speaks.” And hopefully Sid we’ll have that available for us sometime. But it’s simply communicating the mind and heart of God. Now it takes both because the letter will kill us by just knowing the truth. But God has an emotion and heart and so I don’t think you can really perceive the emotion of God right without learning to worship Him. Because not only will He illuminate the word to you, not only will He give you revelation and talk to you about your life and your family and your city and your vision that you’re a part of. But what He’ll also do is He will begin to open up your understanding of how to know Him and how to really walk with Him in a very very practical way. And I believe that is the key to the prophetic because word…remember all of you that are listening as the word of God says in Proverbs 28:19 “Without a vision” what happens to the people? Well, that means they perish without a vision. But that means without prophetic revelation they perish. And so what you always want to do is you can always be assured if you’re willing to submit yourself to God He can give you how to resist the devil and you’ll move forward in victory.
Sid: You know I’m looking at my notes in chapter 7 titled “Host of heaven Judah and the Lion.” You talk about how one time you were worshipping God and you became overwhelmed with His presence and you began to thank God for all for all He had done for you. And then you could see the future blessings that God had for you and even for your children, explain that.
Chuck: Well, because see like I just said in Revelation once we allow God to bring a reality in our life by saying “This is what I have plan for you, you’ve done this well, you’ve not done this well, this is what I’m instructing you to do.” And we have a heart that’s willing to obey what He’s instructing us to do not only do we see the promise for our life. But then He opens this window like it says in Revelations 4:1 “He opens a door into the future.” And all of a sudden we know this is what God’s going to do with my children, this is what He has planned for us, here’s our inheritance. Inheritance means “God has a portion for you Gods got a spot for you.” Every one of you listening not only can you know how He wants you to operate in your spot but He can tell you how your promises are connected with the next generation.
Sid: Give me an example of what He told you for yourself.
Chuck: Well, first of all He showed me for me it was an interesting thing He spoke to me. He showed me that I had been called for the healing of the nations. Now I didn’t understand that at all and I was in a field called “Human Resource Systems in Cognitive Systems.” That’s my background (Ha). And which was a good background I could look at it now and I can see that that was a very good background because it looked at a whole person. It was a secular study and it involved education and it involved several facets of disciplines. What He did was He showed me that I was called for the healing of the nations and then once I agreed with that He showed me He began to direct my path where the 80’s I worked into the Soviet bloc countries and then of course I worked with Cindy Jacobs and Dr. Peter Wagner since the ‘90s. And been involved as the leader of the World Wide Prayer Movement, one of the leaders of that movement and now my whole life is for healing of the nations so even in the 70’s…
Sid: So, even when you didn’t understand what that meant.
Chuck: Didn’t understand at all, see you don’t have to understand everything if you’re in God’s presence it communicates into our spirit and then we can walk it out.
Sid: Chuck you talk about well I like to call it “Cementing our brains and that worship brings us out of conformity.” I mean too often we just want to copy everyone else.
Chuck: Listen we’re made to worship Him and worshiping Him and when you understand the Spirit of God and we can talk about this more and you’re spirit that has been made uniquely you’re worship is going to have a unique flavor about it. Now we can worship corporately but still you are…there’s nobody else on the earth realm like you. And nobody in the earth realm like you and God knew you before the foundation of the earth. So when you start responding to Him you will demonstrate an aspect of God by Him flowing through you and you coming into communion and union with Him that no one else in the earth will demonstrate.
Sid: Chuck what kind of feedback are you getting on your book?
Chuck: This book has…it was really quite amazing Sid at the beginning because it was overwhelming the demand for this book. And I think it’s just because it’s the right time we know that we’re living in a war season and we know that the only way that we’re going to win that war is through worship. So you even mentioned that the book should be called “Worship Wars” I really think that is an appropriate title.
Sid: Oops we’re out of time.
