Ok, first angel’s message.

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. Revelation 14:6-7

I remember wondering just what “worship” really meant. I did not know. I think all will agree that it is a spiritual term, but instead of using the Bible to explain itself, they use a book of man’s ideas, man’s wisdom, man’s thoughts. We need God.

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24

This text sheds some light. The next question might be, “What is, in spirit and in truth?”

 the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

Using the Bible to define itself, we now have a definition of spirit, it is the words of Christ. Next, we need to know what truth is, from a Bible definition.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: John 14:6

We are making progress using the Bible to define itself. This is using the hidden treasure of God’s word. From this we understand that “spirit” is the words of Christ. What do we know about Christ’s words?

From John 6:63, above, we learn that not only are Christ’s words “spirit,” they are also “life.” Notice in that text, the “peg words,” that sit in a parallel reference to the defining words. “They are, they are;” it is a double instruction, two words defining the “words” of Christ; “spirit” and “life.”

    I am that bread of life. John 6:48
For the bread of God is he which cometh down from Heaven, and giveth life unto the world. John 6:33
This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh,

Another definition, bread = flesh.

which I will give for the life of the world. Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

Two more words defined. Flesh = meat, and blood = drink.

 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. John 6:49-58

A rich feast, of words of life, from God. Here is a summary of what we have learned.

To worship God on the Sabbath, we must understand something of what he is saying to us with his words. This takes study, over time.

We must worship him in spirit and in truth;
which is, the words that Christ speaks;
which is, spirit and life;
which is, the living bread of God;
which is, Christ’s flesh and blood;
which is, meat and drink;
which is, the way, the truth, the life;
all in, Bible Words Spiritually Discerned.

This is how God wants us to worship him. It is the language of Heaven.

God Bless your Study
