Praise Is What We Do

Praise is the way to enter into the presence of God.

  • Psalms 100:4 (NKJV)– Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, andinto His courts with praise.  Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
  • These are the places in the Tabernacle/Temple that must be transverse before entering into the Holy Place where the presence of God was under the Old Covenant.

Psalms 149.

  • We are commanded to sing praises to the Lord
  • We exalt whoever we consider king – our King rules above the kings of this world
  • With dancing, percussion, stringed instruments
  • The Lord delights and gives victory when we humbly praise the Lord
  • Singing praises will bring forth joy
  • Our weapons are praise in our mouths and the rhema Word in our hand
  • Praise brings forth judgment to our enemies
  • To bind the enemies of our soul
  • This is our glorious privilege
  • Psalms 150

Why??

  • Psalms 22:3 – Because God inhabits/cohabitates/enthrones the praises of His people.
  • Ephesians 2:15one new man from the two – grafted in – Romans 11:23
  • 1 Samuel 16:23 (NLT)– Praise puts the enemy into checkmate
  • Whenever the tormenting spirit from God troubled Saul, David would play the harp. Then Saul would feel better, and the tormenting spirit would go away.
  • Just as darkness flees the light so does the enemy of humanity when God shows up
  • WORSHIP BRINGS US INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

Become worshipers

  • Praise will transform into worship which in turn transforms us into worshipers
  • While the early Church literally changed the world via fellowship, the fellowship was sustained with worship.
  • Origins inward then goes outward – not based off of emotions but affects
  • Praise can be individual – exponentially more powerful when done in unison with other believers
  • Acts 2:43 – SIGNS AND WONDERS WERE PROMOTED BY THE ATMOSPHERE OF WORSHIP
