Worship In Spirit And In Truth!
By Matthew W Conway
So Saith The Lord…….
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father (Yahweh) will send in my name (Yahshua), he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Are you walking with God in His Spirit and Truth or in a manifestation of the “Churchianity” that you were taught as you evolved into your current belief system.
Are you stuck in neutral or in a perpetual state of two steps forward and one step back? This Frustration comes at a cost and ultimately could mean the loss of your faith or worse, that of your Eternal Life. This outcome is definitely not what our Lord Yahweh desires or has ordained for us.
The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth…….
What Yahweh does want for His Sons and Daughters Is complete clarity and understanding of who we are in Him and who He is in us. As His Sons and Daughters Yahweh desires to reveal Himself to us through His Spirit and the unadulterated Truth of His written Word. This Truth can only be understood in and by Yahweh’s Spirit Of Truth and never in the vanity of our own minds or imaginations. When we are Operating in and through His Spirit and not focusing on the material things of this world, we then begin to Purge out the “Old Leaven Teachings” in our lives (Old Leaven = Our concepts of the Godhead and what is original sin). God the Father has already set us free from the Law of sin and death, when He fulfilled and Or made full His promises to us through His Sacrifice on the cross for all mankind.
Romans 8:1-6 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Yahshua (Jesus), who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Yahshua hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, Yahweh sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Matthew 5:16-18 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Do Not Crucify Me In A New Way…….
Those of us that have received God’s Heavenly gift have been given a glimpse of eternity. Let us not continue to crucify Yahweh in a new way supposing to ourselves that it’s Love. Our Worship of the Father must be of His Spirit and of His Truth, as His Spirit teaches and guides us in our daily walk. There is no other way to eternal Life then through His Death and believing in Yahshua (Jesus) and His eternal Life as the Father. And that the Fullness of Yahweh Dwelled in Yahshua (Yah is Savior) not half not part but Fully dwelt in Him.
Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
To Worship God our Father means more than singing praises to Him. It’s not that He doesn’t want us to praise Him in song. It’s just when that song and our weekly communion in remembrance of Him, Becomes our only way of Worshiping of Him. Then our service to and for Him, becomes a type of dead works. It is at that time that we are just playing Church and only going through the motions, never truly pleasing our Father as He desires us to.
Hebrews 6:1,4 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
Colossians 2:2,8-9 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
John 4:23-24 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. Yahweh is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Worship is a Lifestyle…….
Worship is a Lifestyle a daily choice to carry our cross in the cognitive realization of Who God really is, and not man’s corrupted doctrinal concept of Him. The Truth is
that it was not only His Son that died for us on that day but our Father that put His own-self in our place the on the cross for the redemption of our sins.
What a truly amazing example of a Loving Father! To die such a horrible death for something that His own creation did, that my friends is the ultimate Sacrifice. We should always die daily to our sins and check our Spirit and the Spirits of others, in everything we say or do. We have all sinned and have fallen short of God’s plan and purpose for our life in some way, shape or form. And until His final return for His Sons and Daughters we will continue to do so.
Ephesians 5:4-14 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God (Yahweh) and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.
1 John 4:1,7-10 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name (Yahshua), that will I do, that the Father (Yahweh) may be glorified in the Son (Yahshua). Amen, Amen, Amen
