The worship culture in the kingdom of God is realized and animated because each one who is born again cultivates a culture of worship in their own personal life.
It’s not worship just because you go to church on Sunday morning and sing.
What are you doing the rest of the week?

“Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.”
Are you breathing? Then you ought to be praising and developing a culture of worship in your own heart and life.
9 Hebrew Words for Worship and How We Use Them
That culture of worship in your life is cultivated as you
- Acknowledge God’s greatness and His nature
- He is omnipotent
- He is omniscient
- He is omnipresent
- He is love
- He is immutable
- Remember His mighty acts
- What has God done for you?
- Reflect on His redemptive work
Every kingdom has an enemy; a kingdom that hates that kingdom and culture; a kingdom that wants to overthrow that kingdom.
God’s kingdom has an enemy
And he hates you, and wants to destroy you.
But God has given you mighty weapons to destroy the enemy.
“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:18-19
“And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:13
“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:15-18
Our mighty weapons:
- Keys of the kingdom
- The mighty name of Jesus Christ
- The whole armor of God – Ephesians 6:10-18
The mightiest weapon we have is the most overlooked weapon – the weapon of worship

“Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, To execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples;” Psalm 149:6-7
