  3. 3. Rev 14:7 And he cried with a mighty voice, Revere God and give Him glory (honor and praise in worship), for the hour of His judgment has arrived. Fall down before Him; pay Him homage and adoration and worship Him Who created heaven and earth, the sea and the springs (fountains) of water. Joh 4:23 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers. Joh 4:24 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).
  4. 4. Come face to face with Jesus in scripture and awe changes into adoration as you behold Him in all His beauty: His faultless purity His unequalled wisdom His limitless pity His overwhelming majesty Mat 17:2 And His appearance underwent a Mat 9:36 When He saw the throngs, He 8:46 convicts Me JohJohmovedtheir of you replied, Never has 7:46 TheWho presence; and His of was change in attendants sympathyface with pity and for wrongdoing oras thisMe guilty of [No mere finds Man talks! sin?

[trust Me, rely on, and adhere to Me]? helpless), like sheep without a shepherd
  5. 5. What is worship? Worship is the experience of being “lost in wonder, love and praise” It’s awe (fear, wonder, respect, admiration, amazement) that inspires adoration (love, high regard, respect, admiration, worship, reverence, glorification, honoring, exaltation, devotion)
  6. 6. What is worship? shachah ̂ ̂ shaw-khaw' A primitive root; to depress, that is, prostrate (especially reflexively in homage to royalty or God): - bow (self) down, crouch, fall down (flat), humbly beseech, do (make) obeisance (curtsy, bend), do reverence, make to stoop, worship. proskuneō pros-koo-neh'-o From G4314 and probably a derivative of G2965 (meaning to kiss, like a dog licking his master’s hand); to fawn or crouch to, that is, (literally or figuratively) prostrate oneself in homage (do reverence to, adore): - worship.
  7. 7. What is worship? sebomai seb'-om-ahee Middle voice of an apparently primary verb; to revere, that is, adore: - devout, religious, worship latreuō lat-ryoo'-o From λάτρις latris (a hired menial); to minister (to God), that is, render religious homage: - serve, do the service, worship (-per) doxa dox'-ah From the base of G1380; glory (as very apparent), in a wide application (literally or figuratively, objectively or subjectively): - dignity, glory (ious), honour, praise, worship.
  8. 8. Amp 1Co 14:14 For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit [by the Holy Spirit within me] prays, but my mind is unproductive [it bears no fruit and helps nobody]. MSG 1Co 14:14 If I pray in tongues, my spirit prays but my mind lies fallow, and all that intelligence is wasted.
  9. 9. Amp 1Co 14:15 Then what am I to do? I will pray with my spirit [by the Holy Spirit that is within me], but I will also pray [intelligently] with my mind and understanding; I will sing with my spirit [by the Holy Spirit that is within me], but I will sing [intelligently] with my mind and understanding also. MSG 1Co 14:15 So what's the solution? The answer is simple enough. Do both. I should be spiritually free and expressive as I pray, but I should also be thoughtful and mindful as I pray. I should sing with my spirit, and sing with my mind.
  10. 10. Amp Col 3:16 Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts MSG Col 3:16 Let the Word of Christ--the Message--have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God!
  11. 11. Amp Col 3:17 And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him. MSG Col 3:17 Let every detail in your lives--words, actions, whatever--be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.
  12. 12. Amp Php 3:3 For we [Christians] are the true circumcision, who worship God in spirit and by the Spirit of God and exult and glory and pride ourselves in Jesus Christ, and put no confidence or dependence [on what we are] in the flesh and on outward privileges and physical advantages and external appearances-MSG Php 3:3 The real believers are the ones the Spirit of God leads to work away at this ministry, filling the air with Christ's praise as we do it. We couldn't carry this off by our own efforts, and we know it--
  13. 13. Amp Psa 132:7 Let us go into His tabernacle; let us worship at His footstool MSG Psa 132:7 We shouted, "Let's go to the shrine dedication! Let's worship at God's own footstool!"
  14. 14. Frustration from Heaven What has worship become? …a majority of people leave church without feeling that they experienced God’s presence… Why?
  15. 15. Predictability Start with 3 fast songs, into 4 slow songs, followed by communion, then the ‘word’, and maybe ministry time John 3:6 states that: “The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear it’s sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit”.
  16. 16. Prayerlessness How many of you struggle with your prayer life?
  17. 17. Worship Leader Dependency ‘Take away your music group and ask your people to worship. That’s how good your worship really is’.
  18. 18. Causes of Our Failure We can only worship when the worship team takes the lead and make music Songs replaces prayer – it’s like a show and we are watching
  19. 19. Rituals replaces relationship – no longer do we have a relationship with the Spirit, but follow the tradition of the church Entertainment replaces cost – we rather entertain than give the truth and holy wrath
  20. 20. Desert island worshippers – if you were on a desert island with no CD, no worship leader or bible reading plan – would you still worship, pray and meet with God?
  21. 21. Three Questions to Ask of Yourself: Are you following the Spirit and hearing God or are you simply repeating a ritual? Do you truly reflect the creativity Do you have a healthy, fervent prayer life or of our God or are you imitating is prayer is too and regurgitating meaningless challenging for you? worship?
  22. 22. Myths of 1. God’s Order is Like Our Order 2. God is Polite and Politically Correct 3. The Local Church should be Like a Conference 4. If in Doubt, do what you did Last Week! 5. Better Music will mean Better Worship 6. Our Worship Culture is the Right One 7. We Have to Fill the Allotted Time 8. Imitation is as Good as Revelation
  23. 23. Blueprint for Worshippers Are You a True Worshipper or Are You a False Worshipper? God is looking for true worshippers This implies?
  24. 24. 1. Your Mouth Moves Mountains What is in your heart will come out of your mouth Use your mouth in worship
  25. 25. 2. Passionate Praise Psalm 22 states that God is enthroned on the praises of Israel – the word ‘praise’ does not mean singing a few nice songs or thinking quietly about God. No, the word means ‘high’ praise. Praise that is enthusiastic, loud, passionate. Passion / Zeal is God’s Kingdom-Increasing Tool
  26. 26. 3. Choose Spirit over Flesh Not what your soul or body desires, but with your spirit – …worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
  27. 27. 4. God’s River of Worship Your spirit and God’s Spirit must come into a state of glorious union if you are to be led by the Spirit in powerful worship As you become one spirit with God through surrender and infilling, his motives can become yours, his love becomes expressed in you and your worship is led and perfected by his own Spirit’s leading. It’s the Holy Spirit who will communicate to your spirit, giving direction, power, life and strength to your worship.
  28. 28. 5. The Intimacy of God’s Throne Room You must enter into the Throne Room of God, spend time with Him, be intimate with Him, worship Him, hear from Him
