God has commanded us to worship only him (Deuteronomy 6:13). Even Jesus knew this, since he quoted this to Satan when he was tempted (Matthew 4:10). Why did he never admonish anyone when they worshipped Him? Even God commanded the angels to worship Jesus (Hebrews 1:6).
Both Jehovah and Jesus are given the same worship by the 24 elders in the book of Revelation. Jehovah is "worthy to receive glory and honor and power" (4:11). Jesus is "worthy to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing" (5:12). Every creature in heaven and on the earth give identical praise and worship to both God and Christ in verse 5:13-14.
And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. (Matthew 2:11)
While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. (Matthew 9:18)
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (Revelation 14:7)
4:9 And when those beasts give
glory and honor and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who
liveth for ever and ever,
4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. (Revelation 4:9-11)
5:11 And I beheld, and I
heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the
beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand
times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.
5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. (Revelation 5:11-14)
