Psalm 31:16-17,19-21 Verses:

Make Your face shine upon Your servant;
Save me for Your mercies’ sake.
Do not let me be ashamed, O Lord, for I have called upon You;
Let the wicked be ashamed;
Let them be silent in the grave.

Let the lying lips be put to silence,
Which speak insolent things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!
You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence
From the plots of man;
You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion
From the strife of tongues.
Blessed be the Lord,
For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!

Revelation 5:6-10 (NKJV) verses:
6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. 8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,

And to open its seals;

For You were slain,

And have redeemed us to God by Your blood

Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,

10 And have made us kings and priests to our God;

And we shall reign on the earth.”

Yes i got a lot of passion to go out and testify
about his goodness and his mercy, I can never let it die
and outta me flows living waters I can never let it dry.
Because I know my flesh a mess and it is never satisfied. FIRE!
Simple desires I cannot gratify
because I’m only human will never work as an alibi.
You better believe I’m ready so when it’s time to battle I
come with the holyghost and make sure you hear my battle cry.

We Wanna See Jesus Lifted High (Worship video)

 

All Hail The Power Of Jesus’ Name – Paul Baloche (Lyric Video)

 

A house of prayer for all nations

Spurgeon carnival warningIf you have to give a carnival to get people to come to church, then you will have to keep giving carnivals to keep them coming back. (Charles Spurgeon)

The word of the Lord God came to the prophet Isaiah and was thus written:

Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. (Isaiah 56:7, KJV)

The Church is called to love and serve the Lord. And this is indeed expressed by faith in action. The best way to put faith in action is to worship God in Spirit and in truth. Now the worship of God is a joy to those who believe in him. Yes JOY and not entertainment. Though joy and entertainment might look like good things, the joy of the Lord is holy and the glory is reflected back to God. While in entertainment the emphasis is on self, as in how oneself feels pleasure. In worship your main focus must be to make God happy by your sincere praise.

So if there is sincere praise, would it be possible that there is something known as insincere praise? O yes there is. Insincere praise is when a person who claims to love Jesus doesn’t want to glorify the Lord God and doesn’t want to respect God’s word. The Evil One tries to stop the true praise of God. When he can’t get people to quit coming to church and go into the world for sinning, he tries something else. He tries to get the world into the church. I’m not blaming a particular nation’s Christian worship, though in contemporary culture its become a fad to only make a scapegoat of the worlds most envied country (I need not name it) while blissfully neglecting the mess in one’s own nation.

A very foolish way to worship God is try to ensure that the worship of God must be an entertainment filled event. Worship doesn’t mean that you are competing with the great Mozart himself. You must not lose focus on God at all. Your church might not have its personal Ludwig van Beethoven but that doesn’t mean that you feel upset about your music and try to imitate the self glorifying music of the world. Be happy if you have a good lyricist or a good set of hymns but seek to actually praise God. Don’t worry about the world and what it says. You come to church to praise the Lord and not the world!

In the same light, we need not use the profane elements of the world into singing praises to God. Such worship is not acceptable unto God. Do not believe any lie that says that we are to attract people to church with our singing. Jesus told his disciples to preach the Gospel. He didn’t say that sing some songs and perhaps people will assemble to hear the Gospel. We are called to preach Christ crucified.

For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (1 Corinthians 1:22-25)

“The devil has seldom done a more clever thing, than hinting to the Church that part of their mission is to provide entertainment for the people, with a view to winning them.” (Charles Spurgeon)

Now don’t get me wrong, I do agree that it’s unwise to sing always on a flat note and with rusty guitar strings. My point is that a worship service is to be a worship service unto God and not for the pleasure of man. To that effect, our main focus is to be Jesus the Son of God in our praise. Give thanks to the Lord God for sending his Holy Spirit to guide us in the truth of God. That’s what the church is about. Not some entertainment center but rather a house of prayer for all nations.

Christ be with you!
