 1Kings.18:21. The Lord wants you to declare your stand this day whether you are for God or for Satan. Elijah came to all the people and challenged them to declare where they stand for God or for Baal. A lot of people today are halting between two opinions not totally for God and not totally for the world. 2Kings.17:9-12, 33, 41. The children of Israel had backsliding and were secretly doing those which God forbids and yet still go to synagogues every Sabbath day. A lot of people in church today are just like them; they go church Sunday morning and are in beer parlor Sunday evening. They go to church on Sunday and in herbalist house whenever there is a little problem. They halt between two opinions. Hosea.10:1-2. They bring fruits unto themselves and their heart is divided therefore they are found faulty. Mt.6:24. No man can serve two masters the Lord declares that is why you need to declare where you stand today. Exodus.32:26. Are you on the Lord’s side or do you want to be on the side of sin and Satan? Joshua.24:14-15. Chose you this day who you will serve? The Lord is also calling us to separation from the world as He wanted the children of Israel to be separate from the Nations around them. 2Cor.6:17-18. Wherefore come out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. We are to separate from the practices of the world, their profanity, politics, pollutions, their principles and their policies. We are not to drink their alcohols. Dress the way they dress, the worldly people dress to entice men and corrupt the mind of men and women. We are not to carry out our business the way they carry out their own business. Their briberies and the dishonesty must not be our practices. 1John.2:15-17. Love not the world neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world the love of the father is not in him. For all that is in the world the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life they are not of the father but of the world and the world passeth away and the lusts thereof but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. 1Kings.18:21-29.The Lord is calling us to true and pure worship. He wants us to abandon false and satanic worship which will lead to disappointment and judgment in life now and in hellfire at the end of life on earth. False worship makes one to have a form of godliness but lacks the power for godliness. 2Timothy.3:5. Mt.7:21-23. False worship gives people false hope. 2Cor.11:13-15. False worship and religion makes to forsake the true God and the path of righteousness. 1Kings.18:30-40. Pure and true worship makes God to be very near and to answer our prayer whenever we call unto Him. John.4:23-24. Ps.29:2; Ps.95:6; Ps.96:9. The characteristics of true and pure worship can be seen in the word worship. W-waiting on the Lord, O-Obeying the Lord there is no true worship without obedient. R-reading the word of God, when we come to worship the Lord time must be spent to read and interpret the word of God. S-seeking the Lord when we come to worship the Lord we come to seek His grace and power. H-hear the word of God and honour the Lord, when we come to worship we come to hear God speak to us and we honour the Lord by the way we live in obedient to His word. I-intercede intercession is part of true worship. P-possessing the Divine nature, we came to possess the nature of God. 2Peter.1:3-4. In true and pure worship the word of God takes the central stage. We are called to uphold the unchanging word of God. The word of God is unchanging as God is unchanging. Man and women may change, denominations may change but God is unchanging and His word and His standard are unchanging. 2Timothy.4:1-5.
