In The Presence Of God, Avoid These Unruly Behaviours

Ecclesiastes 5:1-5

1. When thou goest to the house of God, keep thy foot and be more ready to hear than to give the sacrifice of fools, because they do not consider that they are doing evil.

2. Do not be hasty with thy mouth, and do not be hasty with thy heart in speaking anything before God: for God is in heaven, and thou on earth; therefore, keep thy words to a minimum.

3. For a dream comes through a plethora of business, and a fool's voice is heard through a plethora of words.

4. When you make a vow to God, don't put it off paying it; he doesn't like fools, so pay what you've promised.

5. It is preferable not to vow than to vow and then fail to pay.

“For the LORD thy God walks in the middle of thy camp to deliver thee and to deliver thine enemies before thee; therefore thy camp shall be holy, that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.” Deuteronomy 23:14 (KJV)

Make no odd noises or yells during prayer to draw attention away from your own devotion. Keep your cool. The prophet's spirit is subordinate to the prophet. Don't say anything unholy like, "Ride on, Pastor!"

When service is in progress, don't eat or chew gum. Do not trash the church by dropping tissue paper, biscuits, candy wrappers, food particles, or pure water leather on the floor. If food is offered, please clean up after yourself.

People should not be seated in advance. Allow those who arrive early enough to find a seat. If someone takes your seat, don't argue; simply move.

Allowing your phone to ring or answering calls during worship is not permitted; if a call is absolutely required, take it outside. Don't urinate or defecate near the church, and don't let your children do so. After using the toilet or urinary system, flush it.

In the home of God, don't steal other people's belongings. You will be the one to bear the curse. When the service is on, don't sell or buy anything. Come to church on time. Don't mutter, whine, or dispute. Don't speak hastily. All of the rules and regulations must be followed. If you're going to a meeting, don't take a bath outside. Make use of the restrooms. Men, don't go around in your knickers.

Women, don't stroll about with a wrapper tied to your chest. Make sure you're appropriately protected. If you feel the need to pray while at the hostel, pray quietly or go outside to pray aloud. Don't wake up someone who is asleep or meditating. Demonstrate love for one another.

“Finally, be of one mind, having compassion on one another, loving as brethren, being pitiful, and courteous to one another:

Not retribution for retribution, nor railing for railing, but blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8-9

In everything, be patient. Allowing idle remarks to escape your tongue is not a good idea. Be sober and prayerful at all times. Allow nothing to get in the way of your blessing.
