There are many definitions for the word, "gather." It means to unite or to join. When I preached the kingdom of God on Earth, thousands were gathered to hear Me.
Since this virus crisis, you have been encouraged to not meet in your various churches. Now that some of the restrictions are being lifted, many of you are able to return to your church for worship and to hear a message.
I know the joy you experience when you are gathered together for prayer, worship, and to hear My Word. I am overjoyed to once again hear corporate worship. Whenever you assemble for worship, I join you as you praise My heavenly Father. This is why you feel My presence so near to you. The writer of Hebrews wrote, "Saying, I will declare Your name to My brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise to You."
