I'm writing this Mytake because it was kinda inspired by another fellow Gagger who is a athiest who has grumbled in the past about why should we worship God.
I just recently again was going back and forth with him and told him once again why God deserves great worship, honor, Thanksgiving and praise to which he became angry and dismissive which I expected of him as always.
In this Mytake My aim is to help others understand why God deserves worship as God and I will put scriptures of God's word, declaring why he deserves worship and is going to be worship forever more wheather you like it or not by his willing angles and saved humans. 😊
Worshiping The Unworthy.
Many secular people hate the thought of worshiping Almighty God who gives them the very oxygen they need to inhale the very next breathe they take, sunlight and rain for life to be enjoyed and sustained on earth.
Moreover, these same people are the ones that will stand outside at 3AM and for hours in freezing October to January weather smiling and screaming like morons just to hope to get a glimpse of their favorite musician or politician in person who is a complete stranger during their music tour or presidential campaign as He or She is walking by to get into their tour bus or hotel.
The same people who hate the thought of worshiping Almighty God who created the universe and intelligent life have have no problem worshiping and putting Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, their favorite actor or actress, author, athlete, or celebrity on a pedestal who does literally absolutely nothing for them except take their money and more than happy receive worship and glory from them. lol
Worship And Glory Belongs To God Alone.
The first commandment God gave to the ancient Hebrews as they came out of 400 years of slavery in Egypt was to not make any image of any kind to worship or worship nothing but him.
God says clearly says that He is a jealous God. It's not the petty jealously that human beings experienced when they see someone driving a better car than theirs, but rather the jealously that something that rightfully belongs to him (Worship and Glory) is givin to someone or something that doesn't rightfully deserve it.
I am the Lord, that is My name;
And My glory I will not give to another,
Nor My praise to carved images.
God Doesn't Need Your Love, Worship Or Anything From You.
God is seeking your worship, but He doesn't need your worship, money, praise nor validation. Unlike humans, God is self sufficient in all things.
He doesn't suffer from boredom, low self esteem, envy, lack of riches, glory, lack of knowledge or wisdom, hunger, thrist, disease, death, depression or loneliness etc.
God is forever sitting on his glorious throne and won't be challenged nor removed from it.
So don't think for a split second God needs your little stinking Dollar bills, love, worship or anything from you because He doesn't, since all things are literally his and gives you your little sun heat lest you freeze to death and become a pillar of brick ice and the rain so the farmer can pick healthy crops to deliver to your little supermarkets to feed your little stinking fragile body with nutrients lest your body turns purple from starvation and you starve to death.
I will not take a bull from your house,
Nor goats out of your folds.
For every beast of the forest is Mine,
And the cattle on a thousand hills.
I know all the birds of the mountains,
And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.
“If I were hungry, I would not tell you;
For the world is Mine, and all its fullness.
Will I eat the flesh of bulls,
Or drink the blood of goats?
Offer to God Thanksgiving,
And pay your vows to the Most High.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”
But to the wicked God says:
“What right have you to declare My statutes,
Or take My covenant in your mouth,
Seeing you hate instruction
And cast My words behind you?
When you saw a thief, you consented with him,
And have been a partaker with adulterers.
You give your mouth to evil,
And your tongue frames deceit.
You sit and speak against your brother;
You slander your own mother’s son.
These things you have done, and I kept silent;
You thought that I was altogether like you;
But I will rebuke you,
And set them in order before your eyes.
“Now consider this, you who forget God,
Lest I tear you in pieces,
And there be none to deliver:
Whoever offers praise glorifies Me;
And to him who orders his conduct aright
I will show the salvation of God.”
Then Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious; for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription:
TO THE UNKNOWN GOD.
Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.
Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things
Worthy Is God Almighty Of Now And Eternal Worship And Glory.
Everything has its source and origin. God is the only being that is unexpressly brilliant and creative in mind, knowledge, wisdom and power and that is eternal and has no begining nor end nor nothing created him, but he created all things both in the heavens and on earth therefore he worthy of great homage, worship and eternal glory.
Remember the former things of old,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’
Calling a bird of prey from the east,
The man who executes My counsel, from a far country.
Indeed I have spoken it;
I will also bring it to pass.
I have purposed it;
I will also do it.
After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven.
And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.
And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.
Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads.
And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices.
Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal.
And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.
The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.
The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within.
And they do not rest day or night, saying:
“Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”
Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
“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.”
Like I already said, God doesn't need you for nothing. We need him just to breathe and eat etc.
If you desire to continue to worship Kim K, Britney Spears, the pope, celebrity, your fat little pig Buddha statue that can't see you, hear you, nor talk or whatever statue you worship or your delusional athiest science "experts" that are feeding you lies go right ahead.
But as for me I will continue to worship and honor My savior, My King of Kings and Lord of Lords the great God Jesus Christ who alone is holy and to whom alone belongs worship, honor, blessings, wisdom, riches and glory now and forever more. 😊
And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” ❤
