COLETTE’S EYE – WHOSE TRUTH

Evelina and I have always had wonderful conversations about the Word of God. We have learned from each other, when there is a discrepancy, we look to the bible for correction.

The beautiful thing is that we don’t try and prove who’s right nor who’s wrong. We strive to prove the Word of God as our authority and we’re both maybe wrong. We die to ourselves so that we can find life in the Word.

How many times have you tried to prove you were right and somebody else was wrong?

Is being right more important than following the Word?

Strive to change your life to suit the Word, don’t change the Word to suit your life.

Romans  1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

WORD WORSHIP

WORSHIP IN TRUTH

Holy Father of heaven and earth we bow down before thy holy presences adoring thy Word. Thy word is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. We worship towards thy holy temple and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

We honor your word above our word. Thy word is hid in our hearts that we might not sin against thee. Sanctify us through thy truth: thy word is truth.

We come humbly standing in the gate of the LORD’s house, and proclaiming thy word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD.

We have no other word, but thy word. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

WORSHIP IN SPIRIT

Worship with the Word Laura Hackett:

WORSHIPING GOD IN SPIRIT & TRUTH

WORSHIP means:

to kiss the hand to (towards) one, in token of reverence

in the NT by kneeling or prostration to do homage (to one) or make obeisance, whether in order to express respect or to make supplication.

TRUTH means:

what is true in any matter under consideration.

what is true in things appertaining to God and the duties of man, moral and religious truth.

the true notions of God which are open to human reason without his supernatural intervention.

the truth as taught in the Christian religion, respecting God and the execution of his purposes through Christ, and respecting the duties of man, opposing alike to the superstitions of the Gentiles and the inventions of the Jews, and the corrupt opinions and precepts of false teachers even among Christians.

that candour of mind which is free from affection, pretence, simulation, falsehood, deceit.

When the bible speaks of worshiping God in truth, what is the bible saying. Worshiping and honoring God’s truth, God’s word is Him and we must worship in truth.

How do you reverence God in spirit and in truth? By moving in spirit and speaking truth, living and loving truth.

John  4:23  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

John  4:24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

1 Corinthians  14:25  And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.

 

WORSHIPING THE LORD REIGNS FOREVER

WORSHIP IN TRUTH

We love and adore this Most Holy God, you reign forever, you are King of kings, and Lord of lords and we bless thy holy name.

The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.

The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.

We bow down before thee, the earth bows down at thy glory, we humbly ourselves in reverence to your power and majesty.

Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

We honor thy truth knowing that your word was fulfilled when you said that you would raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

We bless thy name oh Great God knowing that Christ shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

And even in the times of revelation we believe thy Word is truth and that as it is written the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

We thank thee Heavenly Father for thy truth, thy Word is true.

 

WORSHIPING YOU IN SPIRIT – YOU REIGN FOREVER

TOO MUCH FLUFF

We don’t need to dress up  the Word of God with all these different version of the bible,  with all of our worldly saying that we deem is so deep, with our quotes of flesh, with ungodly pictures that we shouldn’t be displaying or with inappropriate videos to try and prove our point, etc.

The Word of God (He) is the same yesterday, today and forever more.

fluff

Now this is just enough fluff to makes him/her beautiful.

So, don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with meeting people where they are, they may be babes that need milk. Some babe may need you to dress them until they can dress themselves. The preacher preaches and adds life points to get the message across, etc. Just enough fluff to make things beautiful.

But sometimes it’s TOO MUCH FLUFF. We feel like we have to use the worldly videos, images, cursing, worldly saying to reach people, when we don’t. Too much fluff changes the Word of God to man’s word. We make the decision as far as how much we need to add to make a point.

The Word of God did not, does not and will not need us to over fluff.

The Word of God did, does and always will stand on its own without fluffing it up to sooth the flesh.

The Word of God, HE is

QUICK (to enjoy life, breathe, to live, to be in full vigour, active, blessed, endless in the kingdom of God)

POWERFUL (active, effectual)

SHARPER

PIERCING (penetrate, to go through)

DIVIDING ASUNDER (partition, a division, a separation)

DISCERNER (relating to judging, fit for judging, skilled in judging)

PURE (refine, to test and prove true, refiner)

The Word of God is Jesus Christ

Hebrews 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

 

 

 

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU SPEAK

God’s expressed image was made visible in the Word.

God expressed Himself very clearly in the Word.

God showed us expressly who He is in the Word.

God’s expressions came to life in the Word.

God’s expressed exactly what He wanted us to see in the Word.

God expressed to us who He is, was and will always be in the Word.

God  expressed His Name in the Word.

God expressly speaks His Word in the Word.

GOD’S expressions came to life.

 

JESUS IS THE EXPRESSED IMAGE OF GOD.

Jesus is God’s expression, God’s communication, God’s articulation; Christ in you the hope of glory,  so are we speaking what’s been expressed in us.

 

Hebrew 1:3  Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

MY BODY, YOUR BODY, EVERYBODY

My body, your body, EVERYBODY

It doesn’t matter who you are, how much money you make, where you live, how many cars you drive, how many homes you own, are old you are, how poor you are, how angry you are, how happy you are, how many years you’ve been saved, how many years you’ve served satan, etc.

All creeds, races, sex, sexual orientations, gender, familial status, orientation, disability, gender identity, financial status, employment status, etc.

EVERY

knee shall bow

eye shall see

hand sealed

tongue confess

word established

joint supplied

Romans 14: 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, EVERY knee shall bow to me, and EVERY tongue shall confess to God.

Now if every knee shall bow, the church is still missing SOMEBODY, to tell EVERYBODY about the BODY of Christ.

We must continue preaching to EVERYBODY.
