God Thinking LXVIII - What Is Worship? 10

"God let’s you into His presence when you praise and worship Him in spirit and truth. 

God then fills you with faith so that you can do the will of God and share the will of God with others. 

When you praise and worship God you can get as close as you want to - you can receive as much faith as a created vessel can hold - you can receive as much revelation as Moses, David, Solomon, Mary or Paul.

Note: Some denominations worship or pray to these saints and others and the thought of being able to receive the same or equal dissemination of God's wisdom as one of the saints is foreign to them.  They believe that direct communication with God/The Holy Spirit/Jesus is reserved for their denominations figurehead. Of course believing this false claim negatively affects that persons ability to receive revelation from God (not that God does not communicate despite the error, but that person is trained to ignore outside influences like the leading of the Holy Spirit) so when they do hear from God, they dispose of it or hide it so they are not thought of as heretics. Can you see how that type of thinking can frustrate the will of God for an individual.  If they hear from God and want to believe God for something, they have to hide it or suppress it or deny it to keep the status quo. What a shame. All denominations should be empowering each individual to not only find God, but to hear from and respond to God - to be in touch with their inner man where the Holy Spirit resides.  Can you imagine that the Holy Spirit wants to come and make His abode in your heart, for the reason of never speaking to you or directing you or guiding you, leading you, inspiring you or trusting you.  The way it is set up at these denominations is that you are taught to trust in just about anything except God Himself.  

All you have to do is be willing to expend - exhaust - share proportionately - disperse without prejudice - give away - what revelation you receive from God (concerning the will of God) and you will be positioned to receive more from God.

Praise and worship was designed by God for you to take you to levels of intimacy with God, precept upon precept, faith to faith, glory to glory until that time that you enter into eternity with Him.  Anything less is not worthy of God’s presence."

Note: One more thing. If you are confused and simply unsure of what to believe, don't blame God. It is not God that is confused and confusing others. Try believing what your Bible says for a season instead of what someone says your Bible says.  You might find it refreshing/crushing/exciting/revealing. What I have found (in general) is that religion takes the faith out of Christianity and replaces it with din.
