Why is God a Jealous God?
In Exodus 20:5, it is not that God is jealous or envious because someone has something He wants or needs.
Exodus 20:4-5 says,“You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God.” Notice that God is jealous when someone gives to another something that rightly belongs to Him. Exodus 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
God does not stop with one form of idolatry because He again specifically warns in Leviticus 17:7: “They shall no more offer their sacrifices to demons, after whom they have played the harlot. This shall be a statute forever for them throughout their generations.” And again in Leviticus 20:6, “And the person who turns to mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people.”
Whenever we start considering tolerance of other faiths, start listening to false teachings, we are really listening to the voice of his enemy, Satan.
Those whose faith deny Jesus as the God in the flesh, the written word calls it the spirit of the antichrist. It is NOT of God! Those teachings teach other ways. God is a jealous God and Jesus said he is the only way.
John 10:9 “I am the gate (door); whoever enters through me will be saved.
He will come in and go out, and find pasture.” (verse 7) The one and the only door. The door.
2 John 1
7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. 9 Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; 11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.
1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. We are to Love All people but we still must be willing to stand up for truth even if it is taken as unloving by some. We can NOT be lukewarm Children of God. We need to be willing to show what the word teaches not because we are trying to prove we are right (not arrogantly but because we care) but because eternal lives are at risk and their blood will be on our hands if we have the opportunity and do not try. It does not matter if they take us as unloving, what matter is we do the Lord’s will. Remember we are not here to please man we are here to please the LORD! Jesus told us the world will hate us!!!
18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 “If you were of the world, the world would love its own ; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20 “Remember the word that I said to you, ’A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 “But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. 22 “If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 “He who hates Me hates My Father also.
I pray Children of God will stand up for God’s will and Not man’s will!
Love all of You!
