|You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.|
|Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.|
|You alone are the LORD |
You have made the heavens,
The heaven of heavens with all their host,
The earth and all that is on it,
The seas and all that is in them
You give life to all of them
And the heavenly host bows down before You.
|Nehemiah 9:6 |
One of the fundamental teachings of Scripture is that God is not one among many; He alone is the living God (Deut. 6:4). God alone has made all things, and He alone preserves all things. Therefore, worship is due Him.
Did you know?
Angels are created beings. They are not demigods. They do not have attributes of deity, such as omniscience or omnipresence. They did not exist in eternity past. They are creatures. Like all other intelligent creatures-they were designed to render worship to God, not to receive worship themselves. In fact, in every case in Scripture, whenever angels are offered any form of worship, they always rebuke the worshiper and redirect all worship to God alone (cf. Rev. 19:10; 22:8-9).
