Welcome to Peniel Praise and Worship Music. Peniel means "I have seen the face of God" (specifically Elohim - the Hebrew name given in the scriptures to identify the creator of all things). It is the name the patriarch, Jacob (Ya'akov), gave to the location where he wrestled with "a man," yet one who is clearly not just a man since he has the authority to change Jacob's name to Israel (Genesis 32). Now, some three millennia later, with the understanding that we are free to confidently approach His throne of grace (Hebrews 4:14-16), we are learning to enter into deep intimacy with God by tenderly seeking His face.
We are excited to be living in this time of world history. Biblically speaking, Jesus is manifested through His church as members assemble and worship. The music we use, therefore, is crucial to enabling real worship (intimacy with God) to happen. These are big days of redemption and we are seeing events before our eyes that the prophets and apostles wished to see and did not. With the present apostasy, the delusions of our society, and the globalism before us, we believe that it is more important than ever to consistently minister to the Lord in worship and realize His renewing life in us in the process.
Finally, a great book that is easy to understand and at the same time is easy to apply to any worship service, "Worship, What Have We Been Missing?" takes a serious look at long-time misinterpreted scriptures and sheds new light on intimacy in worship, the function of "the body," and the greater goal of worship. This book demands an honest hearing and promises to bring new life, stability and purpose to individuals and churches hungering to know deep intimacy in the Lord.
When we present a special offering to the Lord we also present it here for all to enjoy.
This most recent offering, "O Come, O Come Immanuel" is among the most ancient of the chants
possibly dating back into the second century A.D. Although it is most often associated with "Christmas"
when you pay attention to the text you realize it genuinely has nothing to do with Jesus' birth.
Since none of the chants were written down until the 700's it may well go back to the first century church singing in the Spirit.
This rendition (arranged by James Wingerter) was sung by the Peniel Singers on Sunday, the 23rd of December, 2018.
A new full-length musical presenting the life of king David, "The House of David" reveals prophecy pointing to the Messiah and the establishment of the Kingdom of God in the earth. A premiere Concert Presentation (not staged) was presented at Fellowship Church on Saturday evening, January 21, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.
