September 18, 2014

Streams in the desert
Living water let it flow
A drink for the people of God -Is 43:20-21
Living water
Living stones
To proclaim the praise
Of the One and Only
Kiss the Son
The Holy and anointed One
Worship in Spirit and Truth
Won’t you bow down and
Kiss the Son
With me?

Psalm 2:11-12 AMP
11 Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him].
12 Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!

John 4:23-24 AMP
23 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers.
24 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).

From NetBible Ps 2:11-12

  • * The Hebrew verb translated “serve” refers here to submitting to the Lord’s sovereignty as expressed through the rule of the Davidic king. Such “service” would involve maintaining allegiance to the Davidic king by paying tribute on a regular basis.
  • *Kiss the Son = in trembling kiss His feet, pay homage in purity
  • kiss[05401] = HEBREW nashaq: kiss

From NetBible Jn 4:23-24

  • worship[4352] = GREEK proskuneo: to kiss, like a dog licking his master’s hand)

‘Kiss the Son’ – the hebrew translates nashqu bar as “pay homage in good faith” or “pay homage in purity”. The homage is to the Lord of Psalm 2:2 and to the Son of Psalm 2:7 — the Messiah King. Homage, kissing a King also implies submission. The Greek word for worship captures this idea – proskuneo – to kiss the hand toward, to do reverence or homage by kissing the hand, to bow oneself in adoration. This is to pay homage in recognition of royalty, to show submission to a king, to be under the king’s reign – like a dog licking his master’s hand.

1 Peter 2:4-5 NKJV
4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 13:15 NKJV
15 Therefore by Him[Jesus] let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
