From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: the house.
. ‘things’ are moving fast in the realm of the Spirit.
. I feel more of a sense of urgency than I have ever felt.
. do you feel the ‘movement’ in the Spirit, from one day to the next?
. do you feel the change? the momentum of the change?
. I want to take one post here to give you a very brief synopsis of the scriptural worship form for the different ages.
. there is nothing wrong with a ‘form’, if it is the right, scriptural, form.
. the garden: God walked with them in the ‘cool of the day’.
. Thompson Chain Reference Bible, on page 1539, showed the ‘cool of the day’ to be from 2:00- 6:00 PM.
. OT: Solomon was given very clear instruction from his father David, to do it exactly according to the pattern that God gave Moses in the mount’.
. the book of Hebrews repeats that very clear instruction.
. the priests worshipped (sacrificed), according to the same instruction.
. what is this OT ‘form’ of worship?
. 2Chronicles 2:4. Behold, I build an house to the name of the Lord my God, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual shewbread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of the Lord our God. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel.
. daily. morning and evening. on the sabbaths, on the new moons, on the solemn feasts of the Lord our God.
. an ordinance forever.
. NT. the early church worshiped according to this form. there is no mention of ‘sun day’ worship.
. certainly not the christ mass, nor ishtar (easter), the only mention of istar sunrise service is in Ezekiel 8, when the elders of Israel, with their faces toward the east, worshiped the sun as it came up.
. the early church worshiped daily, morning and evening, on the Sabbaths, new moons, and on the feasts of the Lord our God.
. kingdom age. because there is no evening here, the daily worship is morning.
. read the book. see if it isn’t so.
