Why? we worship the Holy Ghost when others don’t | part one He is God


Honestly, when somebody goes well, why do
you worship the Holy Ghost? Well, the first point that we’re going to have
here is that, He is God! And that should settle it. Well today I would like to begin a series on, Why we worship the Holy Ghost. That seems to be a good question.
Because, you know, a lot of people don’t. A lot of people find that to be a strange
thing, that comes to the year. Well, why do you guys worship the Holy Ghost when it
seems like others don’t? Well the Holy Ghost said to me, not too
long ago, he said, if they knew Me as God they would worship Me.
So, the problem is that people don’t know him, the Holy Ghost, as God. If they knew
me as God they would worship Me. Well, the fact is… He is God! And if you’re
hungry for more of God, you’re gonna be hungry for more of the Holy Ghost. And I
think people understand that. They know oh I want more of the Holy Ghost.
Well he’s God and worshipping Him will enable Him to come into your life in a
way that He can’t up until now. So, did you find first Peter first Peter chapter
three and verse 15 but sanctify the Lord God in your heart and be ready always to
give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you
you see well we worship the Holy Ghost so we need to have a good reason to give
to people when they go why do you worship the Holy Ghost well I’m hoping
for those of you who do worship the Holy Ghost so that this message tonight will
give you a good answer to give people right it says have an answer so you’ll
have a good answer of why you worship the Holy Ghost and people who don’t
worship the Holy Ghost this message tonight should give you a good reason to
start worshiping the Holy Ghost you see the fact is he is God well that should
settle it honestly when somebody goes on why to yours of the Holy Ghost well the
first point that we’re going to have here is that he
is God and that should settle it do you worship God so he is as much God this
probably will bug people that shouldn’t it’s included in their doctrine he the
Holy Ghost is as much God as Jesus is and the father is and therefore
deserving of worship now I really don’t have a problem if somebody wants to
worship Jesus oh Jesus I worship you or the father father I worship you in Jesus
name I don’t have a problem with that but why do they have a problem if you go
Holy Ghost I worship you the Holy Ghost is as much God as the Father or Jesus
and deserving of worship and in my estimation I’m going to get into this as
we go on here even more so he’s deserving of our worship because number
one he’s God number two it’s his time it’s his dispensation we’re in the Holy
Ghost dispensation it is time it’s his time worshipping Him main seem unusual
at first I know it did to me anybody else who’s done it they go oh I worship
you Holy Ghost it seems a little unusual at first but so did speaking in tongues
remember that or so did laying on of hands
it all seems a little bit unusual because it’s foreign to you you don’t
understand it you haven’t been exposed to it you haven’t done it enough to
where it becomes common are you still here most people give lip service to
this doctrine that the Holy Ghost is equal with the Father and Jesus most
people give lip service to us their doctrine says that do you understand
this if you look up their doctrine at the church you attend it says that the
Holy Ghost is as much God as Jesus and the father is but they have no
follow-through with the rest of their doctrine it stops there it’s just a
statement of lip service because if he was coequal if he was God
then they should worship Him but there’s silence in that area
there is no holy ghost worship the words I worship you Holy Ghost is foreign in
almost every Church in fact they they look at you strangely but this must
change so why do I preach on this so much
frankly it’s a message I’ve been given and I have to be faithful to preach the
message that I’ve been given you understand that that makes sense if
somebody was given a specific message on healing right then they would go forth
and they would preach healing all the time but here we have so a lot of my
ministry a lot of my messages are kind of has an emphasis on the Holy Ghost and
worshiping the Holy Ghost why because I was specifically given that message to
bring forth but you know I’ve been accused of of not preaching other things
well they just don’t know I wrote I wrote these down just off the top of my
head things that I’ve preached on I’ve preached other things here’s a short
list that I could just think of off the top of my head repentance I’ve preached
on repentance I’ve preached on forgiveness I’ve preached on
righteousness I’ve preached on the love of God I’ve preached on faith you ever
hear me preach on faith I’ve preached on healing in the atonement I’ve preached
on the blood of Jesus the name of Jesus the gifts of the Spirit I was going to
bring out all the CDs that we have freely available online I’ve preached on
hope I’ve preached on the gifts of the Spirit I’ve preached on the fear of the
Lord holiness deliverance prayer prosperity
tithing soundness of mind renewing the mind you remember any of these the
baptism in the Holy Ghost laying out of hands water baptism
Communion confession the power speaking God’s Word the power of speaking in
other tongues fasting you know preach on anything I preach on fasting youth
renewal etc this is a short list most of which all of those things most of which
I’ve spent at least three weeks you times six weeks on every single one of
those topics so it’d only say that I only I only talk about the Holy Ghost
and Holy Ghost worship well you know that’s just that’s really weak as far as
a criticism goes now that I’ve said that we worship the Holy Ghost and Holy Ghost
worship changes everything that’s why again all ice a lot of people will hear
what I’m saying or hear in and it hits their ear foreign because it’s coming
from a place of Holy Ghost worship which has changed things it’s different and
they understand it’s different they recognize it’s different a lot of people
don’t want to go there where don’t they want to go they don’t want to worship
God God who God the Holy Ghost who’s in the earth today I’ll go to Acts chapter
24 verse 14 but this I confess unto thee that after the way which they call
heresy so worship I the God of my father’s well as we’re gonna see the God
of your father’s who was he he was the Holy Ghost I will show you this just
hold on so you know they may call it heresy so worship I the God of my
father’s believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets
verse 16 says in herein do I exercise myself that’s why I read that list
because aside from worshiping the Holy Ghost we believe just about all of the
other things that everybody else believes as long as they’re believing
things you know if they’re describing it as it passed away or something well then
you know we’re not in that group but we do believe all of these things you
understand but we believe in worshiping the Holy Ghost which it puts a different
emphasis on it that frankly you can’t even understand
until you begin to worship the Holy Ghost it says we believing all things
which are written in the law we preach out of this Bible we’re we’re saying all
of these things but it says we worship God so worship I the God of my father so
go with me to revelations all the way to the back of your Bible let’s just start
at the end and work our way back how about that
let’s see here Revelation chapter 19 verse 10 and I fell at his feet to
worship him and he said unto me see thou do it not for I am thy fellow-servant
that he’s talking about an angel and of thy brethren that have the testimony of
Jesus worship God is this in your Bible yeah it says worship God now you really
shouldn’t have to tell people this but you do what should you do to God you
should worship Him right so really now we just need to understand whether the
Holy Ghost is God or not and if he is God then we should worship Him according
to this verse of scripture right at the end of the Bible worship God and if we
know him as God will worship him go back to revelations chapter 2 let’s read
verse 7 now here we have we see the resurrected Lord Jesus appearing to the
Apostle John in a vision and Jesus says to John he that has an ear to hear let
him hear what the spirit saith to the churches he didn’t even say what I say
so here’s the resurrected Jesus speaking to John and saying he that has an ear to
hear let him hear what the spirit saith to the churches now if you have Jesus
saying he that has an ear to hear hear what the Spirit says what’s Jesus saying
he’s saying what the Spirit says because the Holy Ghost is God
I hope I’m getting this across just let this seep down in right and he goes on
he says this time after time verse 11 he that has ears to hear let him hear what
the spirit saith verse 17 he that has ears to hear let him hear what the
spirit saith so who’s doing the say a thing the Spirit is the one saying
things so even Jesus resurrected speaking by the Spirit of God he’s still
speaking today you understand who the Holy Ghost he’s saying things he was
saying things then these things could apply to the church right let him hear
what he’s saying to the church who’s saying it the Spirit is saying it to the
church he still speak today you know often you’ll look at a
verse of scripture and you’ll say that spirit that scripture spoke to me you
ever said that you could say that if you read your Bible enough you’d be saying
all that scripture spoke to me who spoke to you the Holy Ghost spoke to you he’s
still speaking today next chapter 13 verse 2 as they ministered the Lord and
fasted the Holy Ghost said is he still saying things yeah he’s still God he’s
still a divine person and he’s still saying things he’s a divine person who
speaks he said the Holy Ghost said separate me Barnabas and Saul for the
work whereunto I have called them well who called who called Barnabas and Saul
to the work no one would would argue if you said God called Barnabas and Saul
would they who called you God God who well specifically the Bible
says the Holy Ghost said separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work we’re
into I have called them so who called them the Holy Ghost and when they’d
fasted and prayed they laid their hands on them and sent them away so they being
sent forth by the Holy Ghost so the Holy Ghost called them and the Holy Ghost
anointed them and the Holy Ghost set them forth who was the Holy Ghost at
least back then he was God you understand a divine person in the earth
speaking to people saying things go to second Peter brother it sounds like you
believe the Holy Ghost is God well he is God and I’m trying to get you to see
that he’s God so that you can take the very next step which is to say I worship
you Holy Ghost because you shouldn’t worship anything or anyone other than
God you understand that is any good this should help people who do worship the
Holy Ghost with answers and this should give answers to people who don’t yet so
they can start second Peter chapter one verse 20 knowing this first that
prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation meaning it can
speak to you for the prophecy the prophecy of the scripture came not in
old time by the will of men but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the
Holy Ghost so these scriptures that we see here we
hold in our hand were spoken and written down as they were moved by the Holy
Ghost we would say oh these things are he the Holy Ghost therefore wrote these
words do you see that 2nd Timothy 3:16 for all Scripture now remember it was
given by inspiration of the Holy Ghost right he he moved on men given by
inspiration of the Holy Ghost here it says in verse 16 2nd Timothy chapter
3:16 all Scripture is given by inspiration of God well we just read a
verse of scripture where they it was spoken by the will of the Holy Ghost and
then this scripture specifically calls him God are you getting this all
Scripture is given by inspiration of God we just read that they were moved by the
Holy Ghost inspiration of the Holy Ghost the Bible specifically calls him God God
who God the Holy Ghost he’s God he’s a divine person he still speaks he’s still
speaking today he spoke these things the Bible specifically calls him God go to
go to first Corinthians 3:16 know you not that you are the temple of God you
are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you the Spirit
of God dwells in you therefore you are the temple of God you just flip that
around who dwells in you God the Holy Ghost I’m a temple of God because God
the Holy Ghost dwells in me does that make sense
go over to chapter six first Corinthians chapter six verse 19 what know you not
that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost he just said you’re the temple of
God Spirit of God dwells in you then he says what no you’re not your body is the
temple of the Holy Ghost it that’s the name of the God who is in you
his name is Holy Ghost are you here though you not that your body is the
temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you which you have of God you’re not your
own but with a price you are bought with a price therefore glorify or worship God
in your body are you here who do you worship you should be worshiping the
Holy Ghost because he’s God the Bible specifically calls him God the Bible
specifically tells us to worship God He is God are you getting this all right
now go to 2nd Corinthians and by the way what do you do what does a temple do
what are you doing you go to the temple the Old Testament you go to the temple
to worship God right now you are the temple so I guess you can worship God
all day long if you want to right and should well who do I worship you worship
the Holy Ghost because you’re the temple of him it’s making sense why do you
worship the Holy Ghost because he’s God and I’m his temple 2nd Corinthians 6
verse 16 and what agreement hath the temple of God with idols and for you are
the Temple of the Dead God no you’re the temple of the Living God now who would
that be it’s got to be the Holy Ghost you’re the temple of the Living God as
God hath said now remember take this all the way back to those other verses of
Scripture that were written by inspiration of God the Holy Ghost right
as God hath said said this in the Old Testament I will dwell in them who will
dwell in them Holy Ghost I will walk in them who Holy Ghost and I
will be their God I see and they shall be my people that’s
not gonna happen if you don’t worship the Holy Ghost
you got to worship God you know nobody to have a problem with me saying that
you got a worship God taking about the color you got a worship God you want God
right but then you tell him Ali’s the Holy Ghost and they’re like oh well I
don’t know that sounds like strange doctrine this is not strange doctrine
this is straight out of chapter and verse you worship God the Holy Ghost are
you getting this if you knew him as God you should worship him as God so we’ve
seen so far we’ve seen all the way from the end of
the Bible right in the book of Revelation that the Holy Ghost is God
and we’re supposed to worship God and then we’re coming back through the
epistles here believe me there are many more and we’ll get to more as we go on
in this series how about the Gospels now I’m gonna I’m gonna be brief here
because I’ve got a lot that I could say in the Gospels at a later time but let’s
go to Luke I tell you you know I’ve been down this road so many times but every
time you get something new presented to you it’s uncomfortable it doesn’t feel
right at first but then it begins to feel like this is right and that other
thing was not so right Luke chapter 4 verse 14 and Jesus returned in the power
of the Spirit he taught in their synagogues verse 15 being glorified of
all verse 16 he came to Nazareth when he been brought up as his custom was he
began to read he found the place in Isaiah now remember he’s gonna read a
scripture are you here which means the Holy Ghost said it and verse 18 he says
thus this is Jesus saying the Spirit of the Lord is upon me who did Jesus say
was on him the holding of the Spirit of the Lord the Spirit of the Lord that
would be the Holy Ghost for he he hath anointed me to preach who anointed Jesus
to preach that would be the Holy Ghost are you here
he didn’t just know you know Jesus is not the holy ghost he didn’t say the
spirit of me is upon me the Holy Ghost came on Jesus as a divine person and
began to speak to him and anointed him the Spirit of the Lord is upon me so
there we see this in the in the Gospels I won’t read too much of that we’re
going all the way back Isaiah 40 verse 13 who hath directed the Spirit of the
Lord or being his counselor hath taught him think about this what is this
implying that because he’s God no one had to teach him anything who has
directed the Spirit of the Lord nobody directs him in fact he was during the
Gospels he was directing Jesus because Jesus came as a man you understand he
set aside his deity and came as a man he had to have God directing him God who
God the Holy Ghost who has directed the Spirit of the Lord or being his
counselor has taught him nobody because he’s God does this make sense is the
Holy Ghost God well yeah have a second Samuel you
understand I can’t read all of the verses that speak of the Holy Ghost
being God but I can read some second Samuel and icepick these few because
they they say specific things and we’re giving a reason why we worship the Holy
Ghost why we worship the Holy Ghost as opposed to somebody else who doesn’t 2nd
samuel 23 verse 2 the spirit of the lord spake are you there the spirit of the
lord spake by me and his word was in my tongue who was speaking the Spirit of
the Lord the Holy Ghost well was Samuel the prophet of God yeah was he required
to say the things that God said yes and then he says it was the Spirit of the
Lord that spake by him so the Spirit of the Lord is obviously God I hope you’re
getting this and if he is God he deserving of your worship meaning you
use the words and say them out your mouth I worship you Holy Ghost so let’s
go to Genesis what if we can find anything in Genesis that speaks to the
deity of the Holy Ghost and him being God
I wonder shouldn’t be too hard let’s go to Genesis chapter 1 and let’s look at
verse 1 in the beginning somebody God right God created the
heaven and the earth and the earth without form and void and darkness was
upon the face of the deep and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the water
here we have the first reference or description of any type at all in the
Bible about who God is and it says the Spirit of God it didn’t say Jesus
floated on the face of the waters it didn’t even say the father it said
the Spirit of God are you here so am I being unscriptural to say that the
Spirit is God because he is and worshiping him should be the first thing
we do are you getting this so he is God and we see him as God we see him
speaking thinking and acting as God well we have to assume then that he is God
right we see Adam and Eve knowing God as who as the Spirit of God he came to them
in the cooler in the spirit of the day and they commune with him they knew him
as God so here we go from Genesis all the way to Revelation or from Revelation
all the way to Genesis we see him as God acting as God speaking as God and if we
know him as God we should worship Him and that’s what you should do you should
worship God John chapter 4 says this God is a spirit and they that worship Him
worship Him in spirit and in truth got here today Oh God
