Worship: Singing the Same Song!
I got an email from my father that was pretty neat for a son to get. It was a testimony of God’s working in his life. God continues to move even though we are old. Way old. 😉 It is interesting that I still wrestle with Dispensational vs. Covenant Theology… yeah probably not on many people’s radar but it is something that has caused me to dig deeper into scripture. Oh for perfect knowledge and understanding… Lord, come quick! No matter what you believe the fact is we are MADE for worship (thank’s to Toby Mac for making that known to my generation) Today, let us sing the same song of the ages.

Studying on “Worship” and how we “Praise” God, I was more than a little shaken in my strong dispensational thinking to see a continuing worship from the days of Moses to David to Isaiah’s prophecies of the Messiah to the end of Revelation’s scene in heaven. It was the SAME!
I always wanted to compartmentalize praise and worship, and divide the Church from anyone else. But from beginning to end, IT IS THE SAME SONG for all of God’s people. And God’s people are the same – from beginning to end!
While God may have given differing commands and requirements for people in different ages, ALL of God’s people are one, and ALL are singing the same song! We are the Church of the Firstborn, God’s people!
Exodus 15:1-2 “I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously.
The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.”
Psalm 118:14 “The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.”
Isaiah 12:2 “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid:
for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.”
Revelation 15:3, “Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints”
From beginning to end, we see the “Church” (ALL of God’s people of ALL ages) singing the same song that is nothing more or less than the Gospel elucidations that we experience now!Published w/o permission 🙂
