Healing Dance

Scripture

Psalm 18:29,33-34,37-39,42,50 KJV - 29By You I have run through a troop; by my God I have leapt over a wall...33He makes my feet like hind's feet and sets me upon my high places.  34He teaches my hands to war, so that a bow of steel (bronze) is broken by my arms...37I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them; neither did I turn again until they were consumed.  38I have wounded them that they were not able to rise; they are fallen under my feet.  39ForYou have  girded (equipped/armed) me with strength to the battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me...42Then did did I beat them small as the dust before the wind;  I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets...
50Great deliverance He gives to His king and shows mercy to His anointed, to David and to his seed (descendants) forevermore.
Psalm 149:3,7-8 KJV
 - 3Let them praise His name in the dance; let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel and harp...7To execute vengeance upon the heathen and punishments upon the people; 8to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron.

Romans 6:13 KJV - Neither yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin; but yield yourselves unto God, as those who are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
Romans 16:20 - The God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. 
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.  Amen.

Books

Hayes, Norvel - How to Live and NOT Die - www.nhm.cc
Chapter 14 Show God You Trust Him  section Make Yourself Dance 
"The joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:1)...
When he (Satan) tries to give me a sad day, I say, 'NO, you don't, in Jesus name. 
I don't accept this and I bind you.  You foul spirit of sadness, go from me'...
Then...I'll dance before the Lord for 2 or 3 minutes.  Do I FEEL like dancing? 
NO!  I FEEL like crying.  You have to MAKE yourself dance before God. 
You don't go by FEELINGS, 'for we walk by faith, not by sight' 2nd Corinthians 5:7
David danced before the Lord with all his might. (2nd Samuel 6:14). 
Make yourself dance...Then hold up your hands, walk around, and worship God...
and bless the name of Jesus by saying, 'I praise You, Jesus. 
I love You, Lord.  I praise You, Jesus.'"

Heflin, Ruth Ward - RIVER GLORY (678KB)  Chapter 16 Signs and Wonders and Exploits in the River - "I saw in the Spirit what I can only describe as 'glory balls' on the feet of the people,  Their feet seemed to be surrounded by the glory of God.  I sensed that this would bring them into a new liberty in dancing and that their dancing would represent a possessing of nations and kingdoms.  Let your feet be released in the glory realm...
Get into the flow of God's river."

Kovacs, Aimee Verduzco - Dancing into the Anointing - www.kingdomgloryinternational.com - West Long Branch, New Jersey, USA
Chapter 3 shares, "I knew I was under heavy attack from the  enemy.  I forced myself to get out of  bed.  I put on some praise music and began to dance before the Lord.  It was a hard thing to do.  Little by little, I started feeling the presence of the spiritual force of joy entering my body.  I started getting so excited about God that my praise turned into worship-.  As I worshiped God, the symptoms left and I experienced divine healing."
Chapter 4 Types and Purposes of Dance in the Church are (1) praise (2) worship (3) warfare (4) celebration (5) travail (6) prophetic (7) triumph (8) evangelistic (9) preparation of hearts to hear and receive the Word of God, plus others.
"My husband and I were separated for 15 months and the Lord had me dance at home to do warfare on his behalf.  Sometimes dancing was the last thing on earth I wanted to do, but that is when I knew I needed to do it the most, because I could feel the oppression around our family.  Now my husband is back."
In addition to warfare dance, there is the dance of travail.  "The dance of travail is a dance of faith where we thank God for the answer to our prayer before the answer is visible.  In this  dance, we proclaim to the principalities of darkness that our God is able to do above and beyond what we ask of Him...One can travail through prayer by speaking the Word and praying in the Spirit.  I have found, however, that travailing in the dance is more joyful and less wearisome...Something happens in the spirit realm when we move.  'Let them praise His name in the dance...to bind...(Psalm 149:3,8)'"

Tenney, Tommy - The God Chasers - www.godchasers.net   
Chapter 3 There's Got to Be More - "We have free entry into God's presence through the blood of Jesus.  We just aren't entering in...During our dancing sessions...we (almost) never consummate the process (and  transition from His anointing into His glory).  The Purpose of the anointing is to help us make the transition from flesh into glory.  One reason we like to linger in the anointing is that it makes the flesh feel good. 
On the other hand, when the glory of God comes, the flesh doesn't feel very comfortable...(Our flesh becomes intimidated and out of control.)  Our flesh is so weakened by His presence that it is unnecessary for man to (dance or to) do anything other than behold Him in His glory.
Chapter 4 Dead Men See His Face   "The Potter of your soul is simply trying to 'soften' you.  He wants to bring you to such a place of tenderness that it doesn't take a hurricane-force wind from Heaven for you to even know that He is present.  He wants you to be so tender that the gentlest breeze from Heaven, the smallest zephyr from His presence, will set your heart a-dancing."

Tikkun, YM (pseudonym) - Whispers of the Shepherd - publisher www.destinyimage.com - Impressions/spiritual insights from the Lord
Shoes and Bare Feet  "In this quiet moment of My love, remove your shoes.  With your feet bare before Me, begin to danceDance with Me, little one.  Before the time to return to your shoes, dance in My love.  Truly I shall be dancing with you."

Smit, Philip - http://ezfaith.com/myblog/who-am-i/ - "Meet with Him in the middle of the floor. Listen to the music and at the right moment, flow into a dance with Him. Experience His presence, love and acceptance. Experience and "see" the movements you make together, perfectly executed all over the floor, you are flowing with Him, even spinning around, He will be there to catch you every time.
Now something amazing happens, He trusts in you to catch Him as well – and you do, because He has made you perfect. You are in perfect unison. In His presence you excel and are in perfect harmony and connected in spirit and in soul.  You are in total unity with Jesus on a soul level! He appreciates you, He sees you perfect, because He has paid the price so that you can enter into God's presence, blameless and without guilt or condemnation. 
This is soul dimension, there is no distinction between man or woman, it is pure companionship and unity on a soul level. If this is not for you, then go meet and walk with Him on the beach, or in the garden of your heart. You can create your garden with your mind, every time you visit, and He will meet you there.
Just make sure you go there often, through relaxed but prayerful and purposeful meditation (holy contemplation). This is where God longs to meet with you, no matter what your flaws, faults and sins are, He has dealt with that 2,000 years ago, and never thinks of it again. (Hebrew 10:17). He has created you as a companion, a co-creator, and He knows you are on a journey to perfection, a little lower than Elohim (God Himself). Yes, He is guiding you and watching with expectant interest how you learn, even by making mistakes."
Smit, Philip - Entrance to Power - His book has excellent insights, but steer clean of reincarnation ideations.
