John Paul Heil presents an original analysis of the theme of worship in the book of Revelation guided by a new illustration of its comprehensive chiastic structure. The worship that Revelation exhorts and enables is in the divine Spirit of prophetic witness against all forms of idolatrous worship on earth in favor of a true, heavenly, and universal worship of the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb, for an eternal and heavenly life. The audience begins this worship in the eucharistic supper into which Revelation leads them by inviting them to respond to the promise of Jesus, "Yes, I am coming soon," with "Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!" They thereby affirm and welcome the coming of the Lord Jesus, the exalted sacrificial Lamb, to the eucharistic supper that anticipates his final coming and the divine grace, the gift of eternal life, of the Lord Jesus that is intended to be the destiny of all--"The grace of the Lord Jesus with all!"

This volume deals with the varied forms of shame reflected in biblical, theological, psychological and anthropological sources. Although traditional theology and church practice concentrate on providing forgiveness for shameful behavior, recent scholarship has discovered the crucial relevance of social shame evoked by mental status, adversity, slavery, abuse, illness, grief and defeat. Anthropologists, sociologists, and psychologists have discovered that unresolved social shame is related to racial and social prejudice, to bullying, crime, genocide, narcissism, post-traumatic stress and other forms of toxic behavior. Eleven leaders in this research participated in a conference on The Shame Factor, sponsored by St. Mark's United Methodist Church in Lincoln, NE in October 2010. Their essays explore the impact and the transformation of shame in a variety of arenas, comprising in this volume a unique and innovative resource for contemporary religion, therapy, ethics, and social analysis.

A Journey into Prophetic Worship is an opportunity to discover our true identities as worshippers. Through the comprehensive study of the scriptures, the author clearly lays out the composites of prophecy and worship and where they converge to produce prophetic worship. Part 1 dispels the myth that Old Testament worship was devoid of Holy Spirit inspiration and was a lot of religious observances, whereas part 2 deals with the myth that prophecy is not for the New Testament believer. If you are desiring more of the leading of the Holy Spirit in your worship, but want to be convinced of its scriptural precedence then this book is for you! Jesus is saying: 'Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks.' (John 4:23) Will you answer this call? Will you come with me on a journey into Prophetic Worship?

Passionate Praise for an Extravagant God!. David wrote that God is "enthroned in the praises of Israel" (Psalm 22:3). When God's people take their praise to a higher level, they begin to unlock their "kingdom authority." Praise is a spiritual weapon, and it's a necessary part of ruling and reigning with Christ. More than merely the preliminary part of a church service, praise is an essential ingredient to experiencing the presence of God and moving into the spiritual realm of prophecy. Joshua Fowler's calling will stir within you a greater hunger and passion for the Lord as you arise as one of God's praiseworthy children. In this book, you will discover how praise...Opens your access to the heavenly places; Draws the lost into the kingdom; Releases signs and wonders; Allows you to govern territories and impact nations for Christ! Allow the truths of Prophetic Praise to penetrate your heart and transform your expressions of praise into prophetic decrees that will shatter the enemy's territory and release the kingdom of God!

The main aim of this book is to provide an answer to the question: is there a connection between God’s people’s praise and God’s presence? The central argument is that Scripture in both Testaments testifies to a correlation between human praise and divine presence. This hypothesis has been investigated in the light of contemporary Christian worship culture and the ensuing need for further biblical studies, which represents the background for this investigation. The study achieves the above aim by applying biblical theology as a discipline and canonical and intertextual models as a method.
