“I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourselves an idol, nor any image of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them, for I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me, and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.” — Exodus 20:2-6 (WEB)
We read in Deuteronomy 6:4-5 – “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” NKJV Throughout the Bible God declares Himself to be the ONE TRUE GOD and that there are no other gods beside Him. Yet, we have a world full of false religions and false gods and even find them in the Christian church in one form or another. We make things idols in direct disobedience to the directive of our God and as a result, we open the door to many things of the demonic realm that we should not have to deal with. Jesus defeated the devil on the Cross and in the Resurrection and yet we seem to be willing to continually open the door for the devil to come back in and bring torment.
It is time that we as individuals, churches, cities, towns, states, and nations honor God as God. I’m sorry if you believe that there are multiple equal gods I believe the Bible and it declares that there is ONE and that is Jehovah God the Creator of Heaven and Earth. I believe the account of Genesis and believe the inspiration of the Bible through the conclusion of the Book of Revelation. I believe that Jesus is the “Way, the Truth, and the Life” and that no one comes to the Father but through Him the Door. I willingly accept his sacrifice for mankind and rejoice in His willingness to forgive our sins and graft us into the true vine and make us a part of His family through His shed blood of Redemption.
It is time that we returned to HONORING GOD as GOD! It is time that we recognize His sovereignty and majesty and bow before Him now for there will come a day when “every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.” If we are ashamed of Him before men He will be ashamed of us before the Father. If we serve Him and honor Him now in this life we will hear the words, “Welcome My good and faithful servant enter into the joys of your Lord,” on that eventful day when we depart this thing we call life.
I urge you to give honor to God as God in all that you do and all that you are! He will come in and fellowship with you and teach you things that you did not know and enable you to walk this walk in a way you never dreamed possible. May God be with you as you go through your day!
