Adoration

Psalm 2:12 speaks of “kissing the Son.” This is an example of adoration. But the actual words, adore and adoration, are not found in Scripture. To adore God is to express reverence and homage; worship. Jews demonstrated their adoration for God in several ways, including taking off their shoes, and prostration.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” Exodus 3:5 (NKJV)

Since God is the greatest thing in existence… or ever will exist, to adore and worship anything besides Him is sin. We are commanded to worship God and He deserves our praise and adoration.

Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. Then he said to me, ‘See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.’” Revelation 22:8-9 (NKJV)

“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:11 (NKJV)

Yahweh is so great and marvelous that there is no other by whom He can swear, so He swears by His own Name.

For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself.” Hebrews 6:13 (NKJV)

 Additionally, God is passionate for His own glory. God’s ultimate goal is to uphold and display the glory of His name. He defends it and will not share it with any other.

For My name’s sake I will defer My anger, and for My praise I will restrain it from you, so that I do not cut you off.  Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it; For how should My name be profaned? And I will not give My glory to another.Isaiah 48:9-11 (NKJV)

Mankind was created for God’s good pleasure. In return, shouldn’t our good pleasure be to adore the Creator? Our greatest service may very well be to worship the Almighty now, and throughout eternity.

During the holiday season, when the world is consumed with parties and gifts, it is easy to worship God with lips alone. A heart of adoration is a heart of purity free of distractions. It is a heart of thanks. Thanks for life and eternal salvation, regardless of circumstance.

The night Christ was born, an angel appeared to shepherds keeping watch over their flock by night. “The glory of the Lord shone all around them” as the messenger spoke of the Savior’s birth.

“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Luke 2:13-14 (NKJV)

Jesus was the gift then and Jesus is the gift now. Our offering, or gift to the Son of God, is our worship and adoration. This December consider the magnificent sacrifice of love the Father made on our behalf. Jesus has given us hope and new life. His birth, death, and resurrection freed us from eternal death and damnation.

Showing love though the giving of gifts is wonderful. Enjoy your family, friends, and the season of Christmas. But consider once again the shepherds. They were given a mighty gift the night Christ was born, but they had to seek it out. They found Jesus and were forever changed. With adoration they stood before the manger and worshiped the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. May the heart of worship and adoration be with you this season and throughout the New Year.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.Psalm 95:6 (NKJV)

 To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.Jude 24,25 (NKJV)

 O come all ye faithful joyful and triumphant
Oh come ye O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him born the King of angels;
O come let us adore him Christ the Lord.
