Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. —Psalms 149:3
In these last days, when God is pouring out His Spirit in great cloudbursts and tidal waves from the floodgates of heaven, and the great river of life is flooding our spirit and body and baptizing us with fire and resurrection life, the Lord is doing His acts. Some of His acts may appear strange, like dancing in the Spirit, speaking in other tongues, and many other operations and gifts. The Holy Ghost is confirming the last message of the coming King, with great signs, wonders, and miracles.
If you read carefully what the Scripture says about dancing, you will be surprised, and will see that singing, music, and dancing has a humble and holy place in the Lord's church. "Praise Him with the timbrel and dance" (Ps. 150:4). So praise Him with the timbrel and the dance, praise Him with the stringed instruments and organ. Jeremiah 31:15 says, "Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together."
I dance before You with joy,
O my King Jesus. Amen.
