Worship the True God!

Sunday, August 18, 2019

“But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens” (Jeremiah 10:10,11 KJV).

Here is the one true God!

Today’s Scripture sits in the context of counterfeit gods distracting people from the Creator God. Friend, you are strongly encouraged to read verses 1-16. It is part of our nature to worship something or someone. The Jews of ancient Israel were copying their neighbors in worshipping and serving their heathen (Gentile) gods. Even today, false religion deceives most souls.

Verses 3-7: “[3] For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. [4] They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. [5] They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. [6] Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might. [7] Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee.”

In contrast to idols, the LORD God—or JEHOVAH God—is “the true God… the living God” (today’s Scripture). The other gods of the world are usurpers, and are actually fallen angelic beings who have defected from that one true God. Idols are dead, not alive. They cannot help anyone—even their own worshippers. The God of the Bible, however, is living and thus able to directly commune with us. According to Scripture, we can have a personal relationship with Him. Do we desire that? Are we willing to worship and serve Him alone?

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!
