The Anomaly of Worship

Can God Worship Man?

Just like you, I also have my thoughts or perhaps, my reservations about this question; however, it is one that has confronted all of us together as such a time as this in the history of mankind.

 

What many of us know is that God is to be worshiped by everyone and everything; however, we must also realize the current trend across the world today. While many are committed to worshipping God, quite a number of people are committed to being worshiped by God.

 

The question again is, "What does it mean for God to worship man?" In plain language, it means that God is bowing or seeking to please or appeasing or begging or trying to convince the works of His hands. For God to worship man, it means that God needs to submit to the authority of man, the one He created in His image and likeness.

 

Now let us flip this:

 

Then the LORD said to me:

"Out of the north calamity shall break forth on all the inhabitants of the land.

For behold, I am calling all the families of the kingdoms of the north," says the LORD; "They shall come and each one set his throne at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, against all the cities of Judah.

I will utter My judgements against them concerning all their wickedness, because they have forsaken Me, burned incense to other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands."

 

Jeremiah 1:14-16

 

When I began this writing, I affirmed what was a bit strange to you, that God should worship man. In your mind, you felt, "How possible?"; "Can God worship man that He created?" As strange as that is, that is what happens currently with many people across the world today. We abandon the living God, we then make gods with our own hands and then worship them. We set other men, both living and dead in positions

of God as our own gods, and then, we worship them daily.

By birth, I am a Yoruba man, born in Nigeria. As a Yoruba man, I have Ile-Ife as my place or city of origin. Ile-Ife is claimed to have about 201 gods, which are worshipped by the throne and the people of the land. In fact, the ruling Ooni (King) of Ife is said to be the 201st deity that the people of the land must worship. Come to think of it, who make these men (princess) kings? Isn't the people? That is it, we make men gods, we raise them up with our own efforts and sacrifices and then we bow to them!

 

In politics, the people of the nation VOTE in one of their people into power; and then, the people bow to their elected leaders, and even worship them. If God cannot worship man; why then do we men worship the things we created?

 

We bring calamity on our heads today as a people whenever we follow the wrong example of the people of Jerusalem, who abandoned the true God and then worship their own creative products. Indeed, let God be true and everyone a liar!

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.

Nuggets for Leaders



Sonship is not what you DO, it is who you ARE!




If you must STAND against the wiles and schemes of Satan; then, you must SIDE with the One who created him. If the LORD God doesn't HELP, you stand no chance of DEFEATING Satan!




You enthrone the Most High God each time you listen to His Word and do accordingly; you enthrone Satan each time you follow his urges, pressures, schemes and manipulations! Be AWARE!




If you fix your mind on the impossibilities, it will be strange for you to ever see any possibility around you. Have you seen someone who watch two playing football teams and support the two teams at the same time. You can only appreciate your side view of any matter. And you only see your own side of the story. If you must have possibility, then you must side with possibilities!
