TEXT- PS 111:9 HE SENT REDEMPTION UNTO HIS PEOPLE: HE HATH COMMANDED HIS

COVENANT FOR EVER: HOLY AND REVEREND IS HIS NAME.

THE BIBLE DOES NOT IMPLY IN ANYWAY THAT MINISTERS ARE FORBIDDEN TO USE THE

WORD REVEREND IN REFERENCE TO THE OFFICE THAT THEY HOLD.

THE SAME WORD IS USED IN RESPECT FOR OUR PARENTS AS WELL AS GOD.

Eph 6:1-3 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise; 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

REVERENCE- A FEELING OR ATTITUDE OF DEEP RESPECT, LOVE, AND AWE, AS FOR SOMETHING SACRED.

WE MUST HAVE REVERENCE NOT ONLY FOR GOD, AND OUR PARENTS, BUT ALSO THE

SANCTUARY

Lev 19:30 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.

1. HOLY IS HIS NAME - INSPIRING AWE, REVERENCE, AND GODLY FEAR.

A. Ps 111:10 THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM: A GOOD UNDERSTANDING HAVE ALL THEY THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS: HIS PRAISE ENDURETH FOR EVER.

B. EL-ELYON -THE MOST HIGH GOD.( GOD OF GOD’S).

Deut 10:17 For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:

C. GOD’S NAME IS REVEREND (PS.111:9)

D. Ps 89:7-11

GOD IS GREATLY TO BE FEARED IN THE ASSEMBLY OF THE SAINTS, AND TO BE HAD IN

REVERENCE OF ALL THEM THAT ARE ABOUT HIM. 8.O LORD GOD OF HOSTS, WHO IS A

STRONG LORD LIKE UNTO THEE? OR TO THY FAITHFULNESS ROUND ABOUT THEE?

9 THOU RULEST THE RAGING OF THE SEA: WHEN THE WAVES THEREOF ARISE, THOU

STILLEST THEM. 10 THOU HAST BROKEN RAHAB IN PIECES, AS ONE THAT IS SLAIN; THOU HAST SCATTERED THINE ENEMIES WITH THY STRONG ARM.11 THE HEAVENS ARE THINE, THE EARTH ALSO IS THINE: AS FOR THE WORLD AND THE FULNESS THEREOF, THOU HAST FOUNDED THEM.

E. WE MUST REVERENCE HIS HOLY PLACE.

HAB 2:20 BUT THE LORD IS IN HIS HOLY TEMPLE: LET ALL THE EARTH KEEP SILENCE

BEFORE HIM. LOOSE THY SHOE FROM OFF THEY FOOT; FOR THE PLACE WHERON THOU

STANDEST IS HOLY. AND JOSHUA DID SO. JOSHUA 5:15

WHEN SOME PEOPLE TALK IN CHURCH A PREACHER WAS ANNOYED BY PEOPLE TALKING AND GIGGLING IN CHURCH. HE PAUSED, AND LOOKED AT THE DISTURBERS, AND SAID," I AM ALWAYS AFRAID TO EXPOSE THOSE WHO MISBEHAVE, FOR THIS REASON: SOME YEARS AGO, AS I WAS PREACHING, A YOUNG MAN WHO SAT BEFORE ME WAS LAUGHING, TALKING AND MAKING FACES AT PEOPLE, I PAUSED AND ADMINISTERED A SEVERE REBUKE. AFTER THE SERVICE A GENTLEMAN SAID TO ME, SIR, YOU HAVE MADE A GREAT MISTAKE. THE YOUNG MAN WHOM YOU REPROVED IS A

IDIOT.’ SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN AFRAID TO REPROVE THOSE WHO MISBEHAVE

THEMSELVES IN CHURCH, LEST I SHOULD REPEAT THE MISTAKE AND REPROVE ANOTHER IDIOT." DURING THE REST OF THE SERVICE THERE WAS GOOD ORDER.

2. HOW ARE WE TO REVERENCE GOD?

A. Matt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

B. AND PHILP SAID, IF THOU BELIEVEST WITH ALL THINE HEART THOU MAYEST. AND HE

ANSWERED AND SAID, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD. ACTS 8:37
