Worship Series & Study – Part II

overview:

The highest form of worship is reflection. You never heard Adam and Jesus worshipping God because they walked with God. They were the image of God. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was forbidden. Because of its fruit we now have corrupted perception; we see things but not the correct way. When God made light He said that it was good, meaning it was functioning as He intended (Gen 1:3-4).
The definition of “good” is different between God and us. He said everything was good when He created it, but evil came in after eating of the tree. Adam & Eve ate the fruit and their eyes were “opened.” They saw that they were naked and that it was “bad” (Gen 3:7). Though God told them that they were good, they thought it was bad to be naked—different definitions. God’s definition of good is within function.

Homosexuality is an abomination because man and woman were not created for that. It was not the function for either gender to mate with themselves. Such operation is an abomination, opposite of what it was supposed to be (procreation). Wouldn’t it freak you out if you saw a river flowing upward? Because it’s not functioning properly. God always has things functioning properly, that’s why He calls them good.

The world sees holiness as ugly. Jesus made Himself of “no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him, nothing that would make us desire Him” (Isa 53:2). But Jesus is the most beautiful person ever, wouldn’t you agree? It’s when you received Him that your perception changed. God said, “Worship Me in the beauty of holiness” (Psa 96:9). Holiness is beautiful.
David had loved God so much that he had worship going 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with 4000 musicians and 288 singers (1Ch 23:5). Can you imagine 4000 musicians and 288 singers at one time? It would top any PA system that we have now, guaranteed.
