Did People Worship JESUS In The Bible?
On many ocassions, I have had discussion with Muslim's who proceeded to state to me - That nobody ever worshiped JESUS in the bible......... Is that true? Did people worship JESUS when he walked the earth, and also just as important, did JESUS accept their worship of himself?
The reason why this is so important is because if JESUS did accept their worship, the bible is stating that JESUS is deity!
This is why the Muslim's who rarely if ever read the holy bible will fight on this topic so fiercely as the do!
Please read below and I pray that the truth will set you free!!!!
1 Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking, 2 “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.
*We can see above that GOD sent the wise men from a far away land to worship his holy & incredible son JESUS.......
Mathew 2:11 - 11 They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
*We can see above that the disciples also worshiped JESUS!
Luke 24:52 51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53 and were continually in the temple, blessing God.
As we can clearly see above, people MOST DEFINITELY did worship JESUS while he walked on earth as a human............
I feel it is very important that children of GOD see JESUS as deity which he obviously is, because this helps us to trust him more, to worship him, to pray to him, and it helps us as we repent our sins to the LORD JESUS!!!
Did you also notice that JESUS never stopped anyone from worshiping himself? Obviously JESUS is far FAR more than we ever thought he was.....
Praise to JESUS!!!!
