Our lives and worship should be offered though Jesus Christ, He just like the Holy Spirit know how to get into the presence of God and stand with our offering before the father. In our worship let it start from our hearts, with the help of the Holy Spirit through Jesus then will our worship be acceptable before God.
“Worship is sealed and concretized by the blood of Jesus”
“The worship of God through Jesus Christ lies at the heart of all Christian expressions”
Jesus in the Lion of the Tribe of Judah in Hebrew language “Y” and “J” are the same so the root word for Judah is “Yadah”. Yadah is a Greek word which is translated Praise so Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Praise. Christ is worthy to be praised.
So far its theological our heads are spinning now lets turn to what the word say about our worship and Christ. “For we are the circumcision who worship God in the spirit and rejoice in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:3
“By Him, then, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips, confessing His name”, Hebrews 13:15. “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him” Colossians 1:16
Jesus is not just about salvation, power over demons and principalities, He is the way the truth and life to God, He carries vials of prayers offered by mankind to the throne room of God. He is our mediator replacing the Old Testament Priest, our worship should be directed and concretized by his blood. Let our worship be directed through him, he knows God more than the most anointed worship leader or pastor.
Most people worship God the father and see no need to worship and lift up the Lord Jesus, he doesn’t matter he is not God. My bible says God is a mystery 3 in 1 and Jesus is God and when we worship God we are lifting God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We can’t separate them they are such hence when we worship we lift them up as God that who He is.
“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing….Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever”, Revelations 5:12-13 This verse shows us that worship should go to the God head not just to God the father but to Jesus Christ.
That’s which consumes the total energies of heaven must be a fitting pattern that the earth should follow is heaven worships Jesus as King, even on his day of birth God made myriads of angels to worship Him, send wise men miles apart to come and worship a baby. People came and worshipped angels and the angels would refuse such worship, even John the Baptist refused such, when Jesus arrived on the scene the blind, the maimed and even his own disciples would bow down and then worship Him.
So if heaven recognizes such, we should understand that Jesus is worthy of all praise and that everything we do he is God.
"Worship Him In The Beauty Of His Holiness"
Worship Him In The Beauty Of His Holiness
Good stuff. One more thought:
Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for His own; he takes our imperfect praise and passes it on to the Father as perfect praise; He takes our self-centered prayers, and passes them in perfection, too.
