Spiritscapes CD Write Up
There is a great release of joy in the first track: “Sing for Joy” based on Psalms 81. Prophet Nola Pelser recorded “Spiritscapes” live at Harvester Reformational Church, Cape Town in 2001. The whole church joined in to praise and worship God in spirit and in truth. At Harvester, worship is centred on Christ and what the Spirit is saying to the church. That’s why they scan the ‘Spiritscapes’ to see what God is doing next. This prevents the stagnation of religious congregational worship. Once, Prophet Nola recalls how the Lord started prompting the audience to sing and the worship rolled in from the back of the church forward and the band started to engage back with the audience! Such moments of prophetic worship are often experienced where the Spirit of God is given free reign.
“Eye Has Not Seen” is a wonderful trigger for meditation and is born from a deep desire for God to “show us great and marvellous things.”
1 Corinthians 2:9,10
But as it is written: “EYE HAS NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NOR HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN THE THINGS WHICH GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
There is a Rock number that pronounces defeat on our enemies as we ask the Lord to “Lead Us in Your Triumph.” The warfare theme is continued with “Take up the Sword of the Spirit” and there is a wonderful change of mood with “Lord You Love is like Waterfalls” followed by a prayer for healing: “healing Song” and national call to prayer: “Jesus Heal South Africa.” The prayer “Abba Father” is a meditation of the Father’s love and care for us and a reminder to: “walk in His presence each day.”
Nola takes the audience on a journey in spirit and truth worship that culminates in a triumphant tone with “Eternal Glory.” There is a lingering sense of victory when you listen through this CD in one sitting as we hear the singers refrain: “We thank You Lord.”
