13: Worship in Revelation – Teaching Plan
avatar

Key Thought: The culmination of all that God has done for this world and the universe can be acknowledged only through worship. It is our greatest joy to sing praise to and worship our King, Creator, Judge, and Savior.

1. Have a volunteer read Revelation 1:13-18.

A. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
B. Why did John fall at Jesus feet as if he were dead? When was the last time you felt like you were in the presence of God?
C. Personal Application: How softly should we walk, or humble should we be, in our approaching God? Do you feel a sense of awe when coming into the sanctuary?
D. Case Study: One of your relatives states, “I don’t see people coming to church with a sense of repentance, fear, reverence, or awe. In fact, people’s behavior and attitude seems much the same as outside the church. Do people really believe they are coming to meet with God at church?” How would you respond to your relative?

2. Have a volunteer read Revelation 13:11-15.

A. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
B. Who are the first and second beasts here? How could the second beast cause everyone to worship the first beast? Why would this act of worship be in defiance of worshiping the true Creator God?.
C. Personal Application: How does false worship relate to people’s understanding of the cross and its role in the great controversy?
D. Case Study: One of your friends states, ”Nobody’s going to force me to go to church or bow down to a statue or worship anything. I don’t need to worship anything or anybody. That way I won’t be caught up in any false worship.” How would you respond to your friend?

3. Have a volunteer read Revelation 14:6-10.

A. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
B. Why is worshiping the Creator part of the first message and central theme of the everlasting gospel? How is worshiping the Creator interconnected with the everlasting gospel?
C. Personal Application: How committed are we in giving the everlasting gospel to the world? Are we just as committed warning people about Babylon and the mark of the beast?.
D. Case Study: One of your neighbors states, “Why is a warning about worshiping the beast and his image and receiving his mark part of the everlasting gospel? That part seems so negative. Who would want to give that message? How would it draw anyone to Christ?” How would you respond to your neighbor?

4. Have a volunteer read Revelation 22:8,9.

A. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
B. What is worship? Is it only what we do in church on Sabbath morning?
C. Personal Application: How do you worship God on a daily basis in your activities? Is it conscience and deliberate worship?
D. Case Study: Think of one person who needs to hear a message from this
week’s lesson. Tell the class what you plan to do this week to share with
them.

  2. Our Worship on earth should be as much as possible reflect the type of worship in heaven In Revelation, Angels worship the same God whom we worship and this same God we ought to show him the worship he deserves. Worshiping him in fear and joy, in truth and in spirit.

  3. Ellen White in Testimonies to the church says,"angels in heaven speak the name of Christ with deepest humility,reverence and self denial.They also veil their faces before approaching the presence of God"they do not dare call the name of God in vain.if angels who have never sinned veil their faces before God it's amazing how we walk in church like we are entering a club.
