Bringing Forth Through Song
"The Manifestation of Christ Within"
by Pastor Alma M, Perry
Sing O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child. Enlarge the place of thy tent. For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. Isaiah 54:1a, 2a & 3, KJV
And Hannah prayed, and said, “My heart rejoiceth in the Lord, mine horn is exalted in the Lord; my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation. I Samuel 2:1, KJV
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she being with Child cried travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered for to devour her Child as soon as it was born.
And she brought forth a Man Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron; and Child was caught up unto God, and to His throne. Revelation 12:1-5, KJV
Many are looking for Visitation or Revival of the manifestation of the Glory of God to His temple. However, the Lord would say unless there is a place of rest in His people He cannot come. He can only rest in like nature of Himself. For the Lord is not coming in a manifestation of glory to His people at this present time for His glory to lift as it has in other visitations. He is coming to make residence. He is looking for a habitation. “We will go into His tabernacles we will worship at His footstool. Arise, O Lord, into thy rest thou, and the ark of thy strength. For the Lord hath chosen Zion. He hath desired it for His habitation. This is my rest forever here will I dwell, for I have desired it.” Ps. 132:7-8, 13-14
At present, we are still in a place of preparation, but the time is very near that, we will experience the manifestation of His glory in and through a people. The preparation that the Lord has revealed is the fact that the true Church of Christ is presently in travail. This travail is in identification to Revelation 12. This woman being in travail is that people who are conscious of their barrenness before God, and desire the manifestation of Christ within. The manifestation of Christ within, the nature of the Man-child is the Glory coming into the Church. The glory, which is Christ, must first be revealed from within the individual; then revealed through the corporate Body.
The Process that is now in Progress
“Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer,” Ps. 4:1 KJV. Satan is presently causing a distress through relationships in the Church. Yet, the Holy Spirit is using the pressures to bring forth. Such was the case with Peninnah who was oppressing Hannah who was barren. The opposition caused great distress to Hannah, which resulted in a travailing cry to God for only He can bring forth spiritually. Because of this barrenness a present people are being prepared for a personal visitation of Christ from within. Persecution is now being endured causing great distress. As this travail is endured being directed towards God alone we will experience an enlargement spiritually so delivery can take place. The Christ our hope of glory coming forth within a people. Being revealed through us in actual manifestation of spirit. Enlargement can only happen through the distress pressing us into a travailing cry.
Revelation 12:4 states that the dragon stood before the Woman to devour her Child as soon as it was born. The way that the Holy Spirit has revealed how she overcame the dragon to bring forth the Man-Child is seen in Psalms 27:5&6. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted above mine enemies round about me; therefore will I offer in His tabernacles sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
As true travail progress “songs of travail” will began to come forth. They will be prophetic songs revealed (quickened)by the Spirit of the Lord. Why would the Spirit of God use song? In Isaiah 54:1, the barren is told by the Holy Ghost to sing. Spiritual birthing does not take place on a horizontal plane that is earthly, but on a vertical plane which is spiritual. This speaks of ascendancy. Singing brings the greatest ascendancy into the presence of God. His presence speaks of His domain, His pavilion, His tabernacle. It is also the place of His throne. For scriptures says He inhabit the praises of His people. It is in His presence through singing His praises that we overcome the enemy. His presence is the safe place of delivery where the Man-Child will be brought forth in and through His people. “Thou art my hiding place: thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance” Ps.32:7. As we continue in these travailing songs in the midst of our distress enlargement will take place over the enemy.
For the present Day Church; there must be a birthing in the heavenlies above principalities and powers of darkness, who Satan uses to hinder the bringing forth of Christ in us. As this warfare takes place the heavens are open causing the light of the revelation of Christ to be revealed and manifested in the life of the individual who is pressing into this place of God. As the revelations come forth, Christ comes forth in manifestation into one’s life. In this progression a reality of knowing Him comes into our relationship with Him.
In Psalms 27:6 the Psalmist states that; “Now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; therefore I will offer in His tabernacles sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.” In our case there is to be a singing of praises to bring forth the actual manifestation of Christ within to be revealed without, in fullness of divine overcoming, love, faith, authority that is His nature. Of course this process is by the leading of the Holy Spirit and is under His control. Because of the danger of being devoured in the process of birthing; the power of prophetic song by the Holy Spirit causes one to come into an atmosphere of the Throne that ensures safe delivery.
As our head is lifted up above the enemy in song, we come into that place of dominion. So it is through great joy that Christ the hope of glory will come forth in and through a people being made prepared in this personal visitation for a corporate visitation of the King of Glory to His people that He may indwell His people for evermore.
