From Genesis to Revelation (History past to future events) we discover God’s redemption plan. God’s story, His-Story, simply put is to dwell with man kind forever!
In Gen. 1-2 God the Creator reveals himself through creation. His universe was perfect, mankind was perfect, fellowship was perfect, until sin. Then the worship wars began. Ever since sin entered, God has been in hot pursuit calling mankind back home.
As God’s story continues, He comes to us in human form; as a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and born of a virgin, whose response is worship.
And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior - Luke 1:46-47
Then we hear about the Shepherds in the field who came to worship; the wise men worshiped, the multitudes of heavenly hosts all worshiped.
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying - Luke 2:13
Later as Jesus called His disciples, the fishermen worshiped, prostitutes and sinners and saints worshipped, even the Son of God Himself worshiped in the Sanctuary by serving others and by submitting to the Father even unto death on the cross. Jesus exemplified perfect worship as He provided the once-and for all sacrifice for sin and changed Worship forever!
Best of all Jesus is alive and is seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for every one of His followers as our Eternal High Priest.
Jesus became the object of true worship! Thank you God for your Perfect Plan!
