5.0 out of 5 stars A Passionate call to Worship, 20 Dec 2012
This review is from: Open Heaven: The Secret Power of a Door Keeper (Paperback)
This book is a passionate call to worship, real God centered worship that pursues God for his own sake. If you want to stay the same leave this book alone but if you are truly open to God read this prayerfully. This is not a book of nice blessed thoughts but a provocative look at how God should be at the centre of our lives. You will find no neat formulas in this book but rather a passionate pursuit of God. Our God delights in having a deep relationship with his children but that is that on his terms alone, we are called to stop confining God to our own formulas and realize that the almighty god is also the lover of our souls. Our relationship is based firmly in his grace and that is affirmed on every page.

as we worship God he will shine the light of his holy presence upon us this will call us to deep repentance for our neglect of him and his ways. Tommy Tenney believes that if we encounter God this way we will know his cleansing and gracious forgiveness. This will enable us to realize a deeper closeness to God as he opens the heavens to us.

We are taught that we need to seek the anointer not the anointing, we have got so accutomed top seeking the anointing we have tended to forget the God who anoints us.

It is a time to give up on seeker sensitive services and replace them with Spirit sensitive services, we should not be entertaining man but rather entertaining God. He highlights the path to getting to this place is not only repentance but also adversity that hammers out our character. He also shows that as Jacob was blessed and limped as a result we need similar deep encounters that will mark us for the rest of our lives.

Are you and I open to such life transforming teaching that leads right into the presence of God? if we answer affimitively we can become channels of blessing to our families, Churches and Nations but we will need to count the cost.
This book has one passion the worship of God and for those of us with tidy theological minds its message may not seem to fit all our neat categories BUT the author puts the first thing first and that is the glory of God. If you find yourself questioning some minor detail in the book, I plead with you to put that aside for the moment so that you will clearly hear God calling you to worship him.
Only buy this book if you are willing for God to change your life. Are you willing to be a doorkeeper in God's house, holding open the door of God's presence if so buy this book and read it prayerfully..
