Ep# 491 The “How” of the Old Testament – Premium Content

Worship is healing, because when we worship according to God’s prescription, it draws us into the closest possible contact and relationship with Christ, the Healer.

The “how” of worship in the Old Testament is essential for understanding the “how” of worship prophesied in the Messianic Temple in Ezekiel 44, worship as it was practiced in the early church and is practiced in the Catholic Church now, and the worship occurring in heaven that St. John reveals to us in Revelation.

This episode is from my Australian Tour, July 2023, in which I spoke from Chapter 6 of “Ignite, How to Read the Bible Like Never Before.”

Thank you with all my heart to my newest Friends of the Show, Sylvia R; Kathy K; and Karen A-S, for loving and lifting me! Friends of the Show get all Premium Content!

L | Listen (Receive the Word via audio or video.)


O | Observe (Connect the passage to your life and recent events.)

Does the Mass seem arbitrary to you, as though the Catholic Church “invented” worship liturgy, rites, and ceremonies? What did you learn about how you practice your faith from this episode?

V | Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E | Entrust (Rest in the Word.)

May it be done to me according to  your Word. Amen +
