What If We Praised The Father

If a person were to talk, sing, express appreciation to the Father about the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. What do you think would result from this course of action? You're free to test this idea because you're free to practices these very things. But first; what do you think would happen?

In worshiping like this; one draws nearer to God. It grows you up into heartfelt adoration of our God ,not giving lip service, but giving all ourselves with heart, mind, body, spirit, soul, and strength involved. Immersed in loving the Lord. Letting this world grow dim as we open to the things of God. It's joining our spirit to God's Spirit, transcending beyond what we attain in the natural. It's trusting God enough to give to Him,not expecting to receive, but receiving because we are lost in His Love.

God inhabits the praises of His people so I believe that He would "show up" as righteousness, peace, joy, strength, encouragement, wisdom, redemption, healing, sanctification, etc.

Plenty, I know one other thing, If no one did the rocks would.

How did this question become so controversial? The author of the question (though I'm not all that clear about why he asks) is speaking about perfectly acceptable praise and worship.

T.S. stop trying to speak for God. That's not the way it works. Jesus, God the Father and the Holy Spirit don't become jealous if you for instance keep saying the name of the Father in worship. You worship one, you worship all.
The Holy Spirit doesn't feel left-out!

T.S.--HOPE nobody believes I think the Holy Spirit is any less worthy, any less Holy any less anything than the other two persons of the Trinity! If it were not for the Holy Spirit I think we would not be able to worship the other two. The Holy spirit has His own personality and roles in the Trinity. He never seeks our attention but always directs us to Jesus. We should not ignore His desires. We truly honor Him when we glorify Jesus.

We should worship God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, but should glorify God the Father and Jesus alone.
John 16:13-14 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. (Sometimes, I've wished I still didn't know the Holy Ghost doesn't accept glory)

Donna, I'm not actually opposing what you are saying, just adding to it. The Holy Spirit IS to be reverenced and honored. I know the Word tells us to ask in Jesus name in prayer, but I believe sometimes a lot of people leave the Holy Spirit out of their prayer life and their worship a lot of the time, and he should never be ignored like that. It's like they think he's somewhat a less important part of the God Head, and that's not true

P.S. Donna2277 and Donna Smith are one in the same. I slip up sometimes ,sorry. Don't mean to mislead anybody. There is another Donna with numbers after her name, and sometimes just plain Donna. They are not me.
---Donna2277 on 5/22/06

I don't think there is anything wrong with addressing the Holy Spirit. I've done it myself.But we ARE specifcally told to pray to the Father in the name of Jesus. I think the Holy Spirit might be displeased if if we habitually turn to Him , since His purpose is to "testify of Jesus" and He always speaks of Jesus and not Himself. See ref. from last post.
---Donna2277 on 5/22/06

BUT he's still part of the God Head, and holy, and he is a HE, not an IT, like most people tend to think. HE has feelings, and can be grieved. I think it is perfectly in order to address "all 3" in prayer AND in praise/worship- because they are all part of one
---T.S. on 5/22/06

I think the question is meant to be more on the rhetorical side, T.S. This is a a good way to praise and pray
The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all 3 God. If you are asking why we don't generally pray to the Holy Spirit, it's because He never speaks of Himself, but rather testifies of Jesus. Jn 16:13,Jn 15:26
---Donna_Smith on 5/21/06

God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are ALL 3 worthy of praise and adoration, worship, honor, and reverence. What, do you think "one of them" gets jealous of "the other one" because we mention the name of God more or less than the name of Jesus??? (I just don't know about some of these blogs...)
---T.S. on 5/21/06

I think if we did this, about 95% of our complaints would seem inconsequential. We would humbly thank God for the abundance of His blessings instead of just asking for things we "don't" have. We would willingly pray for those we feel have wronged us in both private and public life. We would beg to know how He wants us to share His truth with others.
---Donna2277 on 5/20/06

Got news for you. We are supposed to praise the Father for all the benefits through His son Jesus. We are also to pray to the Father in Jesus name. Jesus told us to do this. "Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father"! This is exactly how God wants it. Things are supposed to happen when we do this. Get it?
---JR on 5/20/06

When we sing about Jesus Christ and the Blood, God does show up and sometimes people even shout. Praise God.
