How to Worship YAHUAH (Father/Creator/Most High/Ruler) and Yahshuah (Jesus/Savior/Lamb/King)

Give Him POWER: Energy must go Towards Him and Authority must be derived from Him. Give Submission and Obedience to His Word and His Ways.

Give Him RICHES: Wealth, Money, and Property should be directed towards His Purposes. Freely offer the first tenth of the increase you produce while living on His property (a.k.a. earth).

Give Him WISDOM: The efforts of our mind and our actions must be directed towards Him. We must fear and obey Him.

Give Him STRENGTH: The force and beauty of our youth and the strategy and time of our maturity should be directed towards His expressed Purposes.

Give Him HONOR: Reverence and Respect Him above ALL other Beings and Things.

Give Him GLORY: All Fame, All Credit, All Boasts, All Props, All Shine, All the Marketing Mentions and Brand Recognition should be connected to HIS Name, purposely excluding those that are evil and dishonor HIS Name.

Give Him BLESSING: Sincere, Affectionate and Grateful Words of Praise from the Inside of Your Belly and Spirit, spoken and/or sung.

Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive POWER, and RICHES, and WISDOM, and STRENGTH, and HONOUR, and GLORY, and BLESSING. 13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, BLESSING, and HONOUR, and GLORY, and POWER, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE

God doesn’t accept profane mixed worship so why are we eager to offer it?

When we refuse to TEACH the DIFFERENCE between HOLY and PROFANE and DISCERN BETWEEN the CLEAN and the UNCLEAN, we are rejecting our role as the priests and kings aka children of the Most High! (See 2 Cor 7, 1 Peter 2, Revelation 1). 
Dont let anybody tell you that all ministry is the same! There is A DIFFERENCE. YAH is still looking for a kingdom  of priests to call His Children!
Exekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. 24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths. 
The Difference between the holy and profance can be Taught, and it can be Felt. It can be Explained, and it can also be Sensed. Whether you are Analytical or Emotional, a Teacher or a Prophet,  you have no excuses. Whether you flow in the gifts of Knowledge or the gifts of Utterance, God doesn’t hide the Truth from Thinkers or from Feelers. No excuses! Be ye Holy! Touch not the Unclean thing!

Why Did Moses Say: Let My People Go, That they may Worship ME?

Why Did Moses Say: Let My People Go, That they may Worship ME!?

1. For Worship, for Blood, and for Work. Egypt was the empire of the day. They demanded extreme amounts of idolatry and false worship, and they were stealing it from God. They also demanded a lot of innocent blood, and lot of profits for free labor. Those are two things that cry out to God from the earth according to James chapter 5. God wanted the Hebrews to be a kingdom of priests that worshipped Him. And he wanted their labor to be paid for.

2. For Liberty. If Moses had never said let my people go, God would have never had the opportunity to destroy Egypt with plagues and glorify himself. You have to demand liberty in order to walk in power. This is why Jesus said proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prisons to them that are bound. Within those proclamations is a challenge to the oppressor. Luke 4

3. For Protocol: No matter how spiritual you are, you will never have control over anyone else’s will. If you seek to control someone else’s will, you are a sorcerer operating in witchcraft, not in the Holy Spirit. So God sent Moses to ask Pharoah to change his heart and his will and his desire for worship and free labor from the Hebrews. Pharaoh hardened his heart, and only then could Egypt receive the plagues.

4. For Others: The Bible commands us to speak up on the behalf of those that are opressed and ready to die. It does not tell us to be comfortable in our prosperity and ignore the needs of the poor because they don’t have all the power that we have. This is why Moses left the palace to help his people. And later he left a comfortable position as a shepherd to go back to serve his people at 80 years old. Also See Proverbs 31.

To Summarize: worship and freedom are closely connected. Thats why God told Moses to say: “Let My People Go – THAT THEY MAY WORSHIP ME!” If you are not leading people into true worship you will not lead them into true freedom. And if you don’t have the heart to proclaim liberty to the captives, healing for the broken-hearted, and justice for the oppressed,  they will never follow your example in worship.

Homosexual or Gluttonous “Worshippers” vs God Focused and Disciplined Worshippers

Homosexual or Gluttonous “Worshippers” vs God Focused and Disciplined Worshippers

Prideful, human centered performance based worship is the perfect atmosphere for homosexuality to grow. Because homosexuality is the result of man worshipping His own image (see Romans 1).

A lifestyle with minimal prayer minimal fasting minimal discipline and maximum covetousness produces gluttonous worshippers of self because their god is their belly (see Philippians 3).

Don’t turn a house of prayer into a den of thieves!

Just like in the bible, its the same today. Grievous wolves have entered into the flock of God, and turn prophets into prostitutes for a profit. What can we do?

Matthew 21: 12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

BUILDING A HOUSE OF PRAYER

We need to separate the selling and publishing from the worship. It needs to be done at separate times and separate places. In worship people should be able to give and receive freely.

Why? Jesus turned over the tables in the temple and he said “you have turned my fathers house of prayer into a den of thieves.”

DOES THIS MEAN SELLING IS EVIL?

This doesn’t mean that Christians cannot sell at all. If that’s the case, then anytime two saints got together they couldn’t do any business. Jesus specifically went into the temple, the place that was set up for worship and prayer and made this declaration: my house shall be called a house of prayer, but you made a den of thieves.

Is selling a sin? Is publishing a sin? No, not according to Psalms 68:11 or Proverbs 11:26.

However, selling and publishing do need to be separated from worship and prayer.

HOW DO THIEVES HIDE? WHY DO WOLVES MASK THEMSELVES?

If you look at a group of sheep in the temple and instead of thinking “what can I feed them?” or “what can I give them?” you think “what can I sell them,” then you are a wolf or you will soon become a wolf. A Shepherd is thinking about feeding the flock not making a profit off of them.

Yes it’s okay for shepherds to get paid but the system that God has set up for ministers to get paid is tithing and offering, not buying and selling. Even Jesus had financial supporters (Luke 8:3).

Tithing and offering is the primary way to fund any ministry. It’s not a sin to sell or publish according to Proverbs 11:26, and Psalms 68:11. But those things have to be clearly separated from the house of prayer.

If you have a publishing company then sell it somewhere else, not at the church. Sell through a website. Sell in a public place. Sell at a concert. Not at a church or temple.

Also think about this: when you sell in the temple, wolves smell blood. Their appetite gets turned back on. Thieves think: “I can do that too, even better!” Then they hide in the temple waiting for their chance.

Let’s say you go to a church and you sell a product that is 100% pure. What if a false apostle sees your example, figures out that he is more talented than you, and then decides to sell a product that is 85% pure? Now the church has been corrupted.

That’s why it’s not a good idea to sell products or advertise brands in the church temple or house meeting. Jesus is the brand and Gods Word is the message. Even a 100% pure biblical product can eventually be corrupted by making room for someone with the wrong motives.

WHAT ABOUT CONCERTS?

I have definitely changed a lot of what I’ve done in the past. I used to promote concerts and sell CDs and I would rent churches and regular venues alike.

Nowadays i wouldn’t even sell my book in a church i spoke at. I would not even push it, if someone asked about it I’d tell them to check my website or meet me at my car. I might give some away. When God teaches me something I try to figure out ways to obey, not ways to do the same thing I did before.

In some situations a concert is different, but if it’s at a church and it’s promoted to the church, isn’t it really a church event? If its not, why are tithes and offerings being used to fund a concert venue? If a concert is a church event then it’s a not a good idea to sell there.

If a concert is specifically a publishing event, not at a church then I’d say it’s okay to publish and sell at it.

We need to turn the house of prayer into a house of prayer, not selling, publishing or even branding. Even if it’s a 100% pure biblical product.

BUT WE ARE THE TEMPLE, THE BUILDING DOES NOT MATTER

True, our bodies are the temple of God. But Jesus is also clear that there are church gatherings that are to be set aside for church purposes. He is also clear that his house of prayer was a temple and was to be set aside for certain purposes.

I don’t think Jesus was doing a great acting job. I don’t think he was joking around. I don’t think he was giving a false prophecy. I think he was giving us part of his heart. I think obedience to his heart will help to lead us into the greater fulfillment of his word which is our bodies becoming a house of prayer also.

DOES EVERYTHING WITH A SCRIPTURE ON IT HAVE TO BE FREE?

It would be great if all bibles, books, and musical recordings were free. However, that is not a clear scriptural mandate. I try to focus on what is clear in the Bible.

My focus in this discussion is on the purpose of the temple of God. It’s not a place to rack up profits on products and brands but it’s a place to serve, give, pray, and worship. That’s what’s clear scripturally so that’s enough to make our hearts clean.

IMAGINE

What would happen if all church bookstores were converted into prayer rooms?

What would happen if the motivation for the preacher was not to sell his latest book but to say what God is saying?

What if the church focused on discipling all believers and letting them operate in whatever gifts they had instead of getting some “special” people to pay extra MONEY for “extra” training?

I believe if we start taking God’s word more seriously, soon He will start to take our churches more seriously.

Worship and Warfare

When God has decided that He will have a people that worship Him – He also gets famous for the plagues He puts on the pharaohs and nations that attempt to stop Him.

Is Hallelujah Really the Highest Praise?

“Is Hallelujah the Highest Praise”

Hallelujah is not the praise, its the “commandment” or “encouragement” to praise. When you say “Hallelujah”, you are saying “everybody praise God”.

If I say “tell me your name!” you don’t repeat “tell me your name!” you just do it, you say your name…

To praise God is to retell God’s glorious characteristics and character, basically telling of His name. In the Psalms when David or Moses or Asaph says “Hallelujah” they are exhorting you to speak out your remembrance of God’s goodness and characteristics and the things He did.

So when people say “Hallelujah is the Highest praise” I’m not too sure what they mean. Are they saying “the commandment to praise is the highest form of praise?” I don’t know if that makes sense. There’s nothing in the Bible that actually says that.

If somebody says “Praise God” or “Hallelujah” to me that means I need to think about God and vocalize what He has done and who He really is.

Conclusion:

“Hallelujah” is the praise leader telling you what to do, then (hopefully) leading by example. Its your job to actually do it.

It’s a big misunderstanding and it could make our praise a lot more powerful and build up our souls so much more if we understood how to really praise God without wasting words. Knowledge of the Holy is Understanding!
