I WILL WORSHIP GOD IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh,when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem,worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we knowwhat we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worshipthe Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh suchto worship him.
God is a Spirit: and they that worshiphim must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Worship entails wholeheartedness and truthfulness. Jesussaid he is the way, truth and life (John 14:6) and thereforetruthful worship must be the way Jesus and his followersworshipped GOD. After the earthly ministry of Jesus, theApostles maintained the way he taught them to worshipGOD and they warned the disciples that false teachers willcome and teach them otherwise. The Apostles themselvesfought and died for the faith. The Apostles kept the Sabbath; celebrated Passover on the14
of Nisan, and not Easter; celebrated Pentecost alongsidethe Jewish Pentecost and not on a Sunday; did not celebrateChristmas; and they were zealous for the law.After the death of Apostle John
(the writer of John Gospel,the three Epistles of John and the book of Revelation)
in theearly second century, the Gentile Roman Church:1.Changed Sabbath observance to Sunday worship in theSecond century2.Began the practice of Sunday Easter ceremony andcondemn the observance of Passover by Christiansworldwide
With the support of Emperor Constantine in the 4
century, made Sabbath observance, keeping of Passover and anything relating to Jewish God-givenpractices an offence punishable by law. Many devoutfaithful Christians were killed by the State and Church.
