I believe that the church must be relevant today. Dance Ministry should not be the same as it was 5 or 10 years ago. We must continue to grow in the things of God. With that said, the Lord does not change. We cannot call evil things good and good things evil if we walk in truth. He is still a Holy God. We must not handle the things of God without consulting Him about the proper order. When we aim to use secular means to reach the people of today, our motives matter. How far is too far?

Only the Lord can truly judge where we are in Him. When we receive the Holy Spirit, He will guide us into all truth. Fearing God means that there are certain things that He will reveal to us that shows us what pleases Him. When we aim to do a thing in with the motive to "reach" someone, we open the doorway for error. The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord. Jesus said if He would be lifted up, HE would draw all men unto Himself! We praise God for the diversity of movement ministry, but we must accept the fact that the Lord does not just accept "anything and everything" from us just because we do it in His name.

If we dance in sheer garments in the name of Jesus, is it ok because there was a soul saved afterwards? If we dance seductively in front of an audience and someone tells us they were blessed by it, does this make it acceptable? If He wants to reach someone, He will, but the end does not justify the means.

The Lord will hold each of us accountable for our actions. We must not take His name in vain. He gives us the liberty to dance, rejoice, praise, worship, sing, shout, and bring glory to His name. We must also remember that there is a time and season and purpose for everything. Let us make sure that we are moving in God's Divine timing.

New King James Version

1 Chronicles 15:13
For because you did not do it the first time, the LORD our God broke out against us, because we did not consult Him about the proper order.

Isaiah 5:20
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Matthew 7:21-23
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!"

2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
