experience God desires to have with us. He must draw our focus to Him, thereby preparing us for meaningful worship.
Covenant—The Word of God is read as a review of our covenant with Him. We are then convicted of breaking our covenant through sin and compelled to recommit ourselves to the covenant.
Confession and Repentance—Worshippers confess sins to God and cry out to Him for forgiveness. To repent, we lay our flesh on the altar, thus denying our sinful nature and believing
that God can fill us with His Spirit. Sin is atoned for by the Blood of the sacrificed Lamb and worshippers are cleansed to bring pure incense offerings to God.
Thanksgiving and Adoration—Worshippers review the past, reflect on the present and receive encouragement about the future. We are then moved to thank God for what He has done and adore God for who He is. We worship through prayer and praise, our incense offerings.
In His Presence—Worshippers receive anointing from God and/or hear God’s voice. He gives us power from on high, we get answers to our prayers, and we receive instructions to depart as vessels for His use. Worshippers then make requests of God to receive all that we will need to carry out the instructions He has given.
