Scriptures: Acts 4:31-33, Isaiah 1:18-19, Psalm 22:3, 2 Chronicles 20:21-22
Apostolic identity is revealed through worship: we worship in spirit and truth. Apostolic prayer will cause a shaking: "the place was shaken," the Holy Spirit gave the apostles great power and they were given boldness to witness. The Bible says that "great grace" was upon them all.
We can win through worship!
1) Apostolic worship brings rewards: "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." In the natural a deep stain is virutally impossible to remove, but God removes the stain of sin from our lives permanently. Repentance is a powerful part of our worship experience, it: removes barriers and demonstrates our willingness and obedience to God. Our reward: "you shall eat the good of the land."
2) Apostolic worship brings intimacy: "But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel." To inhabit means to "reside in, to dwell and to possess." Worship brings a familiarity and an established relationship with God. Its brings an understanding of the leading of His spirit.
3) Apostolic worship will defeat the enemy: "And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever. And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten." The Lord set ambushments and their enemies began fighting amongst themselves. They destroyed each other. Through worship we learn to give our battles to God and with God's help we will will.
In our worship we: lift our hands, clap, sing, shout, bow, fall prostrate, are still, quiet, dance, run, play instruments, speak in tongues, etc. We worship in spirit and in truth, and with this worship we can win!
