Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. 2. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. 3. Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. 4. For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
Dance is a universal language shared by all cultures. Many people groups tell their important cultural stories through the movement of dance. When language barriers are an issue, dance can be used to portray what our words cannot. Prophetic dance movement demonstrates what the LORD wants to do in the earth. Praise dance breaks the power of the enemy and sets the captives free. Worship dance invites the presence of God and takes the worshipper into a place of holy intimacy with the LORD.
The word of God validates many expressions and gifts which may be used to communicate the truths of the Kingdom of God. Preachers preach the word, singers sing the word, musicians play the word, actors act the word and dancers dance the word. It's all the same Holy Spirit, manifesting in different administrations of the various gifts.
Within Connect U2 Christ Ministries we are open to using the various gifts which the Holy Spirit has anointed for His purposes. We believe such gifts are to be used to build up the body of Christ and to reach out to the lost. These gifts are to be offered up as a form of praise and/or worship to the LORD.
