    Here are my Sunday morning notes, from August 14, 2011

    =======================
    GRAB YOUR BIBLES Psalms 98:1-9
    =======================
    Today my message is going go be about...how God wants us to worship Him!
    =======================
    LETS READ THE TEXT Psalms 98:1-9
    =======================

    =======================
    V.1A “O sing unto the LORD a new song;”
    -THE SONG........THE LORD REALLY PUTS IN OUR HEARTS-
    (When we are saved:)
    Praising the LORD.......for our salvation:
    --------------------------------------------------
    His gift by Jesus Christ!
    =======================
    V.1B “for he hath done marvellous things:”
    -THE TRUE SOURCE.....OF THIS PRAISE-
    (Our understanding of all He has done for us:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    (1) The more you study, attend & pray:
    (2) The more you will understand all He’s done:
    (3) Therefore...the more you will want to praise Him!
    =======================
    V.1C “his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.”
    -OUR SALVATION......CAME FROM A VICTORY OVER SATAN-
    (When the Lord rose from the grave:)
    ------------------------
    The victory...won by Jesus!
    --------------------------------------------------
    The Lord Jesus...is the Father’s “right hand”!
    =======================
    V.2A “The LORD hath made known his salvation:”
    -GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION........IS SIMPLE-
    (It’s the person of our Lord Jesus Christ:)
    -And is available to everyone!-
    --------------------------------------------------
    This is our message to the world!
    =======================
    V.2B “his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.”
    -WHY EVERY HUMAN BEING.......IS WITHOUT EXCUSE-
    (Because.......God is righteous:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    And He shows this righteousness to everyone!
    =======================
    V.3A “He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel:”
    -ONE PROOF......OF GOD'S "MERCY" AND "TRUTH"-
    (That is constantly.....in the world’s face:)
    ------------------------
    The continued existence of the nation Israel:
    --------------------------------------------------
    In spite....of all that history has hit it with!
    =======================
    V.3B “all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.”
    -STILL ANOTHER PROOF.....OF GOD'S "MERCY" AND "TRUTH"-
    (The facts.....of natural revelation:)
    That is also....constantly in the world’s face!
    --------------------------------------------------
    -THE BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE.....OF USING LIGHT-
    (1)Everyone has an opportunity to be saved:
    (2)Because everyone will be faced with God’s existence:
    (3)Giving them the opportunity to hear about Jesus!
    =======================
    V.4A “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth:”
    -THE KIND OF WORSHIP...THE LORD WANTS FROM US-
    (Joyful....worship:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    This is.....a general rule of worship:
    It doesn’t have to be beautiful....or even in tune:
    Just....from a joyful heart!
    =======================
    V.4B “make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.”
    -SOMETHING THAT COMES NATURALLY.....IN WORSHIP-
    (Loudly....singing out our praise to the Lord:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    It’s comes naturally...because it’s from the LORD!
    =======================
    V.5A “Sing unto the LORD with the harp;”
    -SETTLING A QUESTION.....SOME HAVE ABOUT WORSHIP-
    (Yes....musical instruments are allowed:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Regardless....of man’s sensibilities about it!
    =======================
    V.5B “with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.”
    -AN IMPORTANT POINT...WHEN IT COMES TO WORSHIP MUSIC-
    (The words..... “do matter”:)
    And the message..... “does matter”:
    --------------------------------------------------
    And the words....must be understood!
    =======================
    V.6 “With trumpets and sound of cornet”
    “make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.”

    -THE REASON.....THESE THINGS MATTER DURING WORSHIP-
    (Because God is present with us:)
    As we worship Him!
    “.......before the LORD”
    --------------------------------------------------
    Qt. Matt.18:20 “For where two or....”
    =======================
    V.7 “Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof;”
    “the world, and they that dwell therein.”

    -ALL CREATION......IS IN DEBT TO THE LORD-
    (Even the fish of the sea:)
    Which God has created for a purpose:
    ----------------------
    There is a great mystery...in lower forms of life:
    Because after all..... “God created them”:
    Even though their life is temporal!
    --------------------------------------------------
    Note: The Bible teaches us to have respect:
    For all life....and the Earth God has given us!
    ------------------------
    Job 38:41 “Who provideth for the raven his food?..”
    =======================
    V.8 “Let the floods clap [their] hands: let the hills be joyful together “
    -THE RIVERS AND THE MOUNTAINS.....HAVE THEIR JOBS TO DO-
    (Just like the “ink”....used on a scroll:)
    It’s just “ink”...but it prints the Word of God:
    --------------------------------------------------
    Just as the beauty of nature:
    Points unsaved men to the Creator!
    =======================
    V.9A “Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth:”
    -SOMETHING WE ALL.......ARE TO BE REJOICING IN-
    (God's coming judgement:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Because it’s going to set everything right!
    =======================
    V.9B “with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.”
    -THE COMPLETENESS....OF GOD’S COMING JUDGEMENT-
    (Having one judgement for “things”:)
    And another judgement for “people”:
    ------------------------
    See Psalms 96:12-13
    --------------------------------------------------
    (1)The Earth will welcome God’s judgement:
    (Because “it” will be respected once again!)
    ------------------------
    (2)But people....will hide from God’s judgement:
    (Because they ignored His truth!)
    =======================
