“TRUE = ‘Worship & Praise’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (John 4:20-to-24) Our fathers worshiped in this mountain, and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
(John 4:21) Jesus said to her, Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you shall neither worship the Father in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem.
(John 4:22) You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.
(John 4:23) But the hour is coming, and now is; when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
(John 4:24) God is a spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
*** (Mathew 15:7-8-9) Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying;
(Matt 15:8) “This people draws near to Me with their mouth; and honors Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me.
(Matt 15:9) But in vain they worship Me; teaching for doctrines; the commandments of men.”
*** (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!
Recently someone posted this picture… of two Raccoons with their hands raised. Another posted… (Psalms 150:6) Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! Question: Could it be said; that those raccoons were; “Praising God”…? “Yes–or–No”...? How ‘You’ answer… determines… What ‘You’ know about: “True Biblical Worship”…! Did ‘You’ miss… (Mathew 15:7-8-9) Hypocrites… posted above…? What was missing from their; Worship of God…? Something as simple as… “Worship–God’s Way = According to His Holy Word”…! Their Heart was the Issue… and while their actions were only… “Faking It!” Christ Jesus said it was the “Same Thing”… as to ‘Your’… belief in Him… “John 7:38-39” Unless Your belief in Him; is according to that… “Way”… “You don’t –‘Really’– Believe in Him”…! “ONLY HUMANS” can be Born Again… by the Holy Spirit of GOD…!
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being doers of the Word; and Not merely hearers; who Deceive themselves.
*** (Luke 6:46) Why do you keep calling Me [Jesus] 'Lord, Lord,' but don't do; what I [Jesus] tell you?
*** (John 10:6-to-9) Jesus used this illustration [John 10:1-to-5] with them; but they didn't understand what He was saying to them.
(John 10:7) So again Jesus said, Truly, truly I tell you; I am the gate for the sheep.
(John 10:8) All who came before me are thieves and bandits; but the sheep did not listen to them.
(John 10:9) I am the gate. If anyone enters through Me; he will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture.
In ‘Many of the Churches’… there is a lot of… “Un-Biblical Worship & Praise”…! The ‘Louder’ they are… the more they think… they are worshiping correctly. Please find any Bible verse… where “Drums” are or were used in any worship service of God. But drums were used by the Heathen; during their sacrifice of children to Moloch. The drums were used to cover… the ‘cries’ of those children; being burnt alive! Many of the churches I visit… “Do Not”… even read… “1Corinthains 11:23-to-31”… before the Lord’s Supper! If they ‘do not’ even prepare their… Hearts… before the Lord’s Supper… How then is their Praise; be right before God…? Unless ‘Your Heart’ is prepared; ‘Your’… ‘Worship & Praise & Prayer’… is done in the ‘Flesh’… and “Not in the Spirit… according to God’s Holy Word…!
*** (Matthew 24:12) and because lawlessness will increase, the love [Agape] of many people will grow cold.
*** (2Chronicles 12:14) And he did evil; because he ‘prepared not’ his heart; to seek the LORD.
*** (Acts 5:1-to-6) But a man named Ananias; with the consent of his wife Sapphira, sold some property.
(Act 5:2) With his wife's full knowledge; he kept back some of the money for himself and brought ‘only a part’ of it; and laid it at the apostles' feet.
(Act 5:3) Peter asked, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart; so that you should Lie to the Holy Spirit; and ‘keep back’ some of the money you got; for the land?
(Act 5:4) As long as it remained unsold; wasn't it your own? And after it was sold; wasn't the money at your disposal? So how could you have ‘conceived’ such a thing in your heart? You did not Lie to men: but to God!"
(Act 5:5) When Ananias heard these words; he fell down and ‘died’. And great fear seized ‘everyone’ who heard about it.
(Act 5:6) The young men got up; wrapped him up; carried him outside; and buried him.
*** (Ezra 7:10) For Ezra had ‘prepared’ his heart; to seek the law of the LORD; and to do it; and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.
Church or Worship - 101
Do You ‘Read & Study’ the… Holy Word of God… Daily…? If Not… Why Not…? You do call the Blessed Name of Christ Jesus… and say you are His… “Don’t You”…? Don’t you think that there is a Required Responsibility to Him… and to His Holy Word…? Today… “MANY”… are NOT giving a: Clear Message of Salvation… by the Finished Work of Christ Jesus…! “MANY”… wrongly say… “All ‘You’ have to do is… ‘Believe in “JESUS”…! To “MANY”… that Jesus… is the baby Jesus; in the manger in Bethlehem. To the Others… He is still on their Cross… and they picture Him still there. “MOST” do not know… nor want to know… He is returning to Be Our Judge…! Those that are Truly His… will have their Works Tried by Fire… for Reward or Loss! Those that are not His… will suffer for Eternity… in the Lake of Fire…!

(Heb 10:29) Of how much worse punishment; do you suppose; will he be thought worthy of punishment; the one who has trampled the Son of God, and who has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted the Spirit of grace?
(Heb 10:30) For we know Him [God]; Who has said, “Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, says the Lord.” And again, “The Lord shall judge His people.”
(Heb 10:31) It is a fearful thing; to fall into the hands of the living God.
*** (1Peter 4:17-18) For the time has come for the judgment to begin; from the house of God. And if it first begins from us; what will be the end of those ‘disobeying’ the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved; where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

*** (John 12:48-49-40) He who rejects Me [Jesus]; and does not receive My Words; has one who judges him; the “Word” that I have spoken; the ‘same’ shall judge him in the last day.
(John 12:49) For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father [God]; Who sent Me; gave Me a command; what I should say; and what I should speak.
(John 12:50) And I know that His command is life everlasting. Therefore whatever I speak; even as the Father said to Me; so I speak.
Love; in Christ, Roger / Ezekiel 3:18-to-21.
