Dearly beloved brethren the Bible says you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. It also says my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

John 8:32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Hosea 4:6.My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Besides this, it is painful but still true, that ignorance of what you don’t know, will still impact in your life, because there is no excuse.

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Brethren you need to know the biblical truth of the house of the Lord, the place the people of God, gathers to worship God.

1. It is the church of God, the pillar and ground of truth.

1 Timothy 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

2. The Lord has special love for the place of worship.. He. is always there. It is His dwelling place. You must always reverence the house of the Lord with godly fear, for your service and worship. to be acceptable.

Psalms 87:2 The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
Psa 132:13 — Psa 132:14 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
Isaiah 8:18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
Habakkuk 2:20 But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.

Brethren, because of this you must at all times, behave with reverence and godly fear any time you are going to your assembly or any time you are in the church for service.

Heb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

This is because wrong and unbiblical behavior can impact on the life of the person negatively. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Hebrews 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Psalms 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

During the service or even when the service is not on, the angels are running errands. The angels are not tolerant. They can smite anyone not behaving rightly. Remember the case of angel Gabriel and. Zechariah, smitten with dumbness.

Luk 1:19 — Luk 1:20And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.
Exo 23:20 — Exo 23:22 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

But then when you manifest reverence and godly fear in the house of the Lord. Great thing shall happen to you. This shall be your experience henceforth till Christ comes.

See some of these great things.

1. He shall satisfy you with your desired blessings that shall give you fulness of Joy. This shall be your experience in Jesus name.

Psalms 36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

Psalms 65:4. Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

2. You shall receive speedy answers to prayers like King Hezekiah.

Isa 37:14 — Isa 37:17And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD. And Hezekiah prayed unto the LORD, saying, O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth. Incline thine ear, O LORD, and hear; open thine eyes, O LORD, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.

3. You shall still be flourishing till old age.

Psa 92:12 — Psa 92:15 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Dearly beloved brethren so henceforth, see what you must be doing.

1. Be always happy to attend all services.

Psalms 122:1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.

2. Don’t be a visitor that goes to church occasionally or at the end of the year. Go regularly to attend all services, which makes you to be dwelling and not visiting.

Psalms 27:4. One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
Psalms 84:4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.

3. Be committed to rendering wholehearted services in the church.

Psalms 84:10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

This way, God shall be pleased with you and bless you abundantly here and hereafter.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Col 3:23 — Col 3:24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
