BREAKDOWN – SPIRIT & TRUTH

John 4:22, Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

We all know the scripture John 4:24, God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

We are having wonderful worship services and some are truly worshiping God in spirit but are we worshiping God in truth.

Are we really worshiping God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH when we’re having our worship services?

Are we truly worshiping God if we’re not worshiping God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH?

Let’s look at the scripture meaning of worship, spirit and truth, this will provide us with clarification for our worship to be complete.

Since the scripture tells us that WE MUST worship God in spirit and in truth, are we truly honoring God by our worship.

Let’s break down this scripture to obtain TRUTH

John 4:23 But the hour (point of time, definite time) cometh, and now is, when the true (sincere, genuine, real) worshipers shall worship (to kiss the hand, to fall upon the knees and touch the ground with the forehead as an expression of profound reverence, to prostrate) the Father in spirit (the power by which the human being feels, thinks, decides, the Holy Spirit) and in truth: (what is true in things appertaining to God and the duties of man, moral and religious truth, in reality, in fact)  for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

BREAKDOWN: The definite time has comes and now is when the genuine worshipers shall fall to their knees, lay prostrate in profound reverence to the Father is the power of the Holy Spirit and in true things pertaining to God: for the Father seek such to worship him.

Now that the scripture has been broken down, can we take a minute here to reflect on our lives? Can we look into the mirror and say, “I’m worshiping God in spirit and in truth?”

The truth is we have all fallen short in worshiping the true and living God. Are you kneeling down, laying prostrate are the words that we’re speaking worshiping God in truth or are your words what others tell you to say.

GOD IS LOOKING FOR TRUE WORSHIPERS!

WORSHIP

When in the right positions of worship in the presence of the Holy God it allows you to be in the right positions in the presence of men.

I was filled with the Holy Ghost at the age of 12 and that’s when I heard the voice of the True and Living God speak to me that I would speech His Word. When I went to my mom, I was told to sit down because she thought I was playing. I would go to my mother and tell her that I’m seeing spirits and images and she would tell me to be quiet or go to bed, etc. she thought I was playing. I had no one to direct my gifts so that they could grow for the glory of God. What eventually happened when I turned 16 years old, I left the church because I couldn’t find where I belonged in the church.

I didn’t go to church but I kept God in my heart. I knew that I was different but didn’t understand what to do with these spiritual gifts God had given me.

Today I seat here, still different, still gifted, still anointed, still filled but I recognize and I know for myself. All I needed was to learn how to worship. When I learned how to lay prostrate before God, to fall to my knees in the presence of God, I begin understanding my gifts. I remembered praying for all the gifts that the bible has. I didn’t want one or 2 gifts I wanted them all and that’s exactly what God manifested through me, HIS GIFTS.

BUT AS FOR ME, I WILL COME INTO THY HOUSE IN THE MULTITUDE OF THY MERCY; AND IN THY FEAR WILL I WORSHIP TOWARD THY HOLY TEMPLE.

Today people are struggling trying to find out where they belong, how do my gifts manifest. I can tell you it’s in your worship. When you begin to worship the only True and Living God (not idols) then you will begin to see growth in your life, growth in your family’s life, growth in your ministry, growth in your gifts, growth in your studies of the Word, growth in the anointing. You will know for yourself how to present your gift(s).

FOR THOU SHALT WORSHIP NO OTHER GOD: FOR THE LORD, WHOSE NAME IS JEALOUS, IS A JEALOUS GOD

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE makes a difference.
As I began to play various worship music and worship God, I noticed that my difference became beautiful. My sight changed, my heart changed, my love changed and my worship became real. I found myself a weak vessel in the presence of the Almighty God.

FOR WE ARE GLAD, WHEN WE ARE WEAK, AND YE ARE STRONG; AND THIS ALSO WE WISH, EVEN YOUR PERFECTION.

God began perfecting us for His Glory and for His use. God’s Word becomes life, His love can be felt, His voice is clear, His directions were straight and you can find out for yourself that God is real.

GOD IS A SPIRIT AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.

Today is a great day to learn how to present yourself to God and God will present you to the world. You can learn what you need to learn through WORSHIP
