Worship in the Spirit What did he tell us to do? He first told us to sing. We can sing: In our own language and musical idiom In other tongues both Unknown Foreign languages Singing is prayer and should be a conversation with God Singing should bring us into an encounter with God
Worship in the Spirit Exodus 15:1 TNIV Exodus 15:1 TNIV Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the LORD: "I will sing to the LORD, for he is highly exalted. Both horse and driver he has hurled into the sea. 2 Samuel 22:50 TNIV Therefore I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name.

Tongues Speaking to him in heavenly language Acts 2:4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:4 Acts 2:11 Both Jews and converts to Judaism Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!" Acts 2:11
Speaking and Singing in Tongues Mark 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues Mark 16:17 1 Corinthians 14:5 I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. He who prophesies is greater than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may be edified. 1 Corinthians 14:5
Prophecy In the previous scripture it comments on prophecy There are two kinds of prophecy There is predictive prophecy There is the application of God’s word to current situations Then there are words of knowledge Prophecy has to be judged as to its veracity by other prophets
Prophecy Prophecy is a desirable gift 1 Corinthians 14:1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. 1 Corinthians 14:1 2 Peter 1:20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. 2 Peter 1:20
Prophecy 2 Peter 1:21 For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:21 1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1
God Gives Gifts for Worship 1 Corinthians 12:9-11 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines.
Resting in the Spirit When the Spirit is operant a Spirit filled person may pray for someone and they may rest in the Spirit Matthew 28:3-5 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
Resting in the Spirit John 18:5,6 "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground.
Demons Manifesting Themselves God gave us power over demons. They are always anti Christ and when God is being worshipped they often reveal themselves Luke 10:17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name." Luke 10:17
Demons Manifesting themselves Luke 13:32 He replied, "Go tell that fox, 'I will drive out demons and heal people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal Luke 13:32 Mark 3:11 Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, "You are the Son of God." Mark 3:11
Deliverance Deliverance from demons is a demonstration of God’s power and his love for the demon infested, Therefore, it is a form of worship Jesus said that if persons did not believe in his words they should believe in the miracles he performed
Worship Prophecy, Words of knowledge, resting in the Spirit, and deliverance are all part of the Lords communicating with us, but our worship is our communication with Him extolling his character, and giving thanks for his beneficence!
