|But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. (John 4:23)|
Our Creator, Yahweh, had a specific purpose when He created man. That purpose was for man to WORSHIP Him. By giving Him praise and to glorify His Holy Name. In Deuteronomy 14:2 reads “For thou [art] an holy people unto Yahweh thy God, and Yahweh hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that [are] upon the earth.” Yes! Those whom He has called and heed to that calling will be a peculiar people from those of the rest of the world. Although many have known Yahweh, they neither gave Him thanks nor glorify Him. Their hearts prevail in the darkness of their own lusts. They claim to be wise yet they live as fools. We are told this in Romans chapter 1 beginning in verse 21, “Because that, when they knew Yahweh, they glorified [him] not as Yahweh, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible Yahweh into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things.”
This is exactly the state of affairs we find that this world is now presently in. We see many of our government leaders quoting Bible scriptures as to what we should do with the present crisis this nation is faced with, however, at the same time they are denying that power thereof the Bible speaks of as seen in 2 Titus 3:5 “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” Even though our leaders are speaking a good message they are still proclaiming that man’s law must be upheld. However, as that verse continues we are reminded “from such turn away.” Are we turning away? Will we turn away? It doesn’t seem so! Yahweh’s Laws must be upheld before man’s laws if we want to become a blessed people once again. Otherwise, if we do not follow in His Ways and Worship Him we shall be given over to even more evil ways.
Let us look at what Yahweh said He would do as we read on in Romans 1:24, “Wherefore Yahweh also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of Yahweh into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause Yahweh gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain Yahweh in [their] knowledge, Yahweh gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of Yahweh, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of Yahweh, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Every great nation before us has fallen because they forgot to Worship Yahweh and give Him the glory that He rightfully deserves. Are we about to fall too? Everything that we have just read points to that way, if we take a hard, honest, and close look around us. We need to get back to Worshipping the Father Yahweh as we should. Isaiah writes beginning in Isaiah 43:7, “[Even] every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my GLORY, I have formed him; yes, I have made him. 8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. 9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? Let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, [It is] truth. 10 Ye [are] my witnesses, saith Yahweh, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I [am] he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11 I, [even] I, [am] Yahweh; and beside me [there is] no saviour.”
We were created for His Glory and His Glory Alone. Therefore, we must Worship Him as we are told in His Word. We must Worship Him in “spirit and truth” (John 4:24). We need to find our way back to having fellowship with Him and obtain a personal relationship with Him. “Always singing with praises in our hearts and sing with grace in our hearts” (Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:19). For if we protect and guard our hearts in this manner, “out of it will spring the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
Yahweh is absolutely the only Life-Force that mankind has. There is no other life- force regardless of what man may say. Man is only fooling himself if he thinks otherwise. Seek diligently today, right now as a matter of fact, to be delivered from all hopelessness and from the confusions of this world. Seek to receive Yahweh’s Gift of Salvation now. If you are a backslider, seek His forgiveness so that you may be found in good standing with the Eternal Family of Yahweh. We were all made in His image and likeness, therefore we need to act like it - under obligations to obedience.
Because of neglect, duty, and responsibility toward being obedient, our first earthly parents set into motion the down fall of man. We have inherited their DNA which is called SIN through disobedience to the Father’s Will. However, we as individuals for the last two thousand years have been under a much better covenant than our earlier forefathers and still we fail to make the right choice.
“For Yahweh so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For Yahweh sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of Yahweh. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in Yahweh.” (John 3:16-21)
In verse 16 tells us how this New Covenant was establish upon earth for us. The Son, Yahshua came into this world to take upon Himself the very nature of the Father so that we could have eternal life. He too, like we should, throughout His whole life Honoured, Glorified, and Worshipped the Father. More often than not, most people don’t understand what it means to worship. They go to church once a week, sing a few songs and think that’s all there is to worshipping. Worshipping is more than that. Worshipping is being obedient to Yahweh and His Divine Laws, every second of the day. As our example, Yahshua did this and was found perfect and without sin.
Godliness is becoming less uncommon each passing day, just as it was it the days of Noah. They too, had forgotten to worship Yahweh their Creator. Possibly Chief Pastor N. Lazar of the New Jerusalem Church, in Bombay, India said it best: “Children of God should worship God. Man has been created and shaped only to worship and glorify God (Isaiah 43:7). Whether a person is cultured or a savage living in a forest, that person possesses a natural instinct to worship God. He worships either a dead man or stone or soul or tree or beast or bird or natural scenes as God and bows his knee before them. Yes, he worships God or someone other than God or something which he likes. We Christians should bow before God and worship Him. God saves or liberates a person only to worship Him (Ex. 8:1). Some people don’t worship God and therefore they don’t receive the blessings of God. Such people are trapped in various kinds of sins and vile passions. You should worship God, else you may worship false gods which will not save you. They will not save you from sin, curse, danger, disease, wicked people or hell (Sam. 12:21-22). If you worship God, He will be glorified and you will be made perfect. He who worships the Creator will become like Him. His needs will be fulfilled. He will have peace. Worship God unceasingly (Dan. 6:16).”
