Who May Enter?

Who may stand in the Lord’s presence?

Who may enter the heaven’s gates?

It’s not about the song or what you are singing. Praise and Worship is about the HEART of the one praising and worshipping. You cannot enter in the Lord’s presence or His holy throne if your heart is not right.

You can sing all you like. You can sing all you want. If your heart is not cleansed, nor consecrated, you really cannot enter His Holy presence.

It’s alright to disagree if you really believed you are in right. Just close this page. 🙂

Deuteronomy 23:3 New Living Translation
“No Ammonite or Moabite or any of their descendants for ten generations may be admitted to the assembly of the LORD.

Revelation 22:14 New Living Translation
Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life.

Now this is the entrance gate to the New Jerusalem! Let the revelation of this verse be revealed to the reader!

Psalm 118:20 New American Standard Bible
This is the gate of the LORD; The righteous will enter through it.

Psalm 15 New American Standard Bible
A Psalm of David. O LORD, who may abide in Your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill? 2He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart. 3He does not slander with his tongue, Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor takes up a reproach against his friend; 4In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honors those who fear the LORD; He swears to his own hurt and does not change; 5He does not put out his money at interest, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.

rep·ro·bate
ˈreprəˌbāt/

Psalm 24 New Living Translation

3Who may climb the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? 4Only those whose hands and hearts are pure, who do not worship idols and never tell lies. 5They will receive the LORD’s blessing and have a right relationship with God their savior. 6Such people may seek you and worship in your presence, O God of Jacob

Job 1:5 New Living Translation
When these celebrations ended–sometimes after several days–Job would purify his children. He would get up early in the morning and offer a burnt offering for each of them. For Job said to himself, “Perhaps my children have sinned and have cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular practice.

Those purified or cleansed by intercession.

Ok. Moving forward. 

The righteous ones, sanctified or purified, and living in holiness can enter the Lord’s presence. This is the very reason why sometimes, worship in the Church Service can easily manifest the presence of the Lord. The same opposite reason – when nothing seems to be happening.

sanc·ti·fy
ˈsaNG(k)təˌfī/
verb
free from sin; purify.
Rather than sing your lungs out in vain, it’s best to pray – ask forgiveness for all sins, iniquities, transgressions, for any uncleanness of the lips, heart and mind. Then, see for yourself what happens when you start to worship.
