6/27/10 Pastor Alex Sunday sermon: Unstoppable Worship Revelations 4:8-11, Rev 1:5-6
Praise and Worship drive everything we Christians do. The bible says every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord! Music brings in the worship of God.
1) God is the Creator of Music:
He has a design for the system and how it should work. God created music and the presence of the Lord comes in. We should all sing, praise and worship God. Heaven will be Loud with musical praise--Enthusiasm, Excitement!!
2) Music was Created for Worship:
God created music before he created man. We were all created in the image of God so music is in us and was created before us. Rev 1:5-6. We were made Kings/Priests thru the blood of Jesus Christ. Priests are to Lead in Worship. This is what we should do--Worship!
There are many love songs because God is love and we are to sing/praise God in music. There is also counterfeit stuff to what God created which comes from the devil. So there is this music that distorts love and makes it dirty sex instead. Be careful of what we worship and listen to cause it will stick to us.
Watch the Lyrics!!
3) Praise and Worship are the Entry Point for His Kingdom to Come and Godís Will to be done in human circumstances:
The presence of Godís Kingdom and power is directly related to our Praise of God!
We need to praise God Loudly to open up the doorway to Gods presence, Godís Kingdom and Godís will to be done in our circumstances.
Praise is sayingÖ.Go God! Go God! Do Your Thing!!! Do Your Thing!!
We need to do things Gods way! Do Godís way to praise and worship. Not our way and not by our own rules. We are responsible before God to worship Him his way. Music can be great but our goal is not to have great music but to bring in the Presence of God. We worship God not music! The musicians are Not responsible for ushering in the presence of God., We the congregation-EVERYBODY HERE- is to praise God to bring in the presence of God into our church service.
