Other Gods


Exodus 20:3 ** “You shall have no other gods before ME”.  (This is the first of the Ten Commandments spoken thunderously from Mount Sinai before our Creator God wrote them on stone tablets with His finger (Exodus 31:18).  The finger of God wrote the first six verses of exodus 20 to explain these 8 eight words. The next longest commandment is the fourth which took four verses to explain the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God.

 “Some people live to eat. I eat to live”. These are frequent words spoken by my beloved adopted Mother Irene, a Holocaust survivor from Hitler’s Germany. ** Many mothers often have wise sayings which their recipients fail to fully understand. This generation surely fails to understand that when we ‘live to eat’; it is a sinful abomination by our awesome Creator God. Note what the Apostle Paul said in Philippi, saying, “(Mankind) whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly (stomach), and whose glory is in their shame---who set their mind on earthy things. For our citizenship is in heaven….. (Philippians 3:19-20a).

A mind set of earthy things is disobedience to our Creator Father God. Just as He walked and talked in the Garden of Eden, giving His perfect fatherly commandment (law) to Adam, saying, “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die”(Genesis 2:17). ** By disobedience of listening and obeying another god, the god of this evil world (Satan, evil adversary of Father God). Therefore, just as through one man, sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned--- (Romans 5:12).  To this day ‘some live to eat’ of the forbidden fruit of sin, wickedness and disobedience to the commandments of our Creator God. The grim punishment before death is the immense suffering, sickness and misery.  This is the food of death.   

However, our one and only Creator God provided the means for mankind to turn away from the food of death with food of life. The food of life is regular Bible study and doing it. This is our Lord talking to us. When we partake of this wonderful food which nourishes our soul, our Lord will freely give everlasting life to those that truly love Him and turn from hate. The food of death is to worship and believe other gods such as the cunning and devious adversary (Satan). Besides constant greed in grumbling and complaining all men are disobedient in all the wonderful commandments of love spoken by our Creator God of the universe. Note His words spoken in Revelation 21:7-8, saying, “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be MY son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable (hate instead of love for God and fellow man), murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death”.  ** The Lord also spoke of riches through the Psalmist in 63:5, saying, “My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness (richest of foods for those that overcome hate which is worship of Satan). ** AS we welcome others within our lives to our table, we remember that we are representatives of our Creator and anticipate his wonderful hospitality in His soon coming Kingdom. The soon coming Kingdom will be filled with His saints which are God’s chosen people of all nations who have become holy and godly people in training with the enlightenment and wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

1 Colossians 1:26-27 ** .The mystery (of God) which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

 These last seven words ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’ sums up the revealed mystery of the entire universe. Pagan rites since mankind was cast out of the ‘Garden’ have blocked all peoples out of the Kingdom, but now has been revealed for God’s purpose which can only be imparted by divine revelation of God speaking through His words from daily Bible study.  Wise men, religious seekers, philosophers and sages continue to search without results for their efforts are like the common sage brush of the American plains which is bitter to the taste because the Messiah; Y’shua Christ Jesus is not in them. The word mystery is a puzzle to most of the world but it is His secret plan in the last days. The mystery is assurance of being welcomed by our Creator God in the new ‘Garden’, the new heaven and new earth. The mystery is not found in complex philosophies, theory’s, and worldly greed; but in the truths of our Creator’s Word.

The goal of our one and only God is to make all nations and peoples whole and complete in the ‘Word’, the Messiah; Y’shua Christ Jesus. His words to the Psalmist in 96:5, says, “All the gods of the peoples (nations) are idols”.  ** This generation since eviction from the ‘Garden’ has not changed. The adversary of our Creator God continues to sway mankind into disobedience of all His Commandments whether it is greedily relishing rich foods and riches of the world while most of the world suffers from starvation. However, for those that love the Lord their God, their brother as themselves and hate evil, the soon hope of His coming have great expectations of rejoicing in His righteousness with the great expectation of His reign in the new ‘Garden’.

Psalm 82:6 ** I said, “You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High”.  Verse 8 says, “Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all nations”.  ** For those that keep all the commandments will truly become as gods for they are adopted and redeemed into the family of the Kingdom of the Most High and will share in the rich inheritance of the nations. It is easy when you ask the Messiah; Y’shua Christ Jesus to come into your heart and take charge of your life.  Ask Him daily in prayer to help you to change your wickedness and cleanse you with His Holy and pure blood of the ‘Lamb of God”!
