The ten commandments are still important to God’s people today. For this reason, we need to learn about each one of them and also obey them as we do. As for today, we will open up to Exodus, chapter 20, verse 3, which reads, “thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3) This verse is self-explanatory. Creating a god for yourself is evil in the sight of the one true God in the heavens. Therefore, believing in gods such as Buddha, Allah, the gods of Hinduism, making Mary like a God, made-up gods, believing you can become a god, and more goes against God’s laws. If you love God, then you wouldn’t even dare to have any other gods before Him. The Lord our God would mean more to you than anything else and having other gods will be an unthinkable act. And acting upon such things without repenting and forsaking these things would mean hellfire and damnation when people die. Disobeying this single commandment is sending more people to hell than you may think. However, while we still have breath, we can stop believing in other gods and begin worshipping the one true God from the Bible
The one true God spoke the following to Moses, “and in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.” (Exodus 23:13) “Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you.” (Deuteronomy 6:13) Jesus said, “he that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:7,8) As was spoken, we are to not even speak of other gods, let alone believe in them. Doing so makes us an idolator, which means to believe in and or worship other gods. If you want to go to heaven, but are mixed up in idolatry, then get right with God today. This means destroying all your idols and allowing God to remove any false beliefs in other gods. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, our God, I believe in You alone. Help me and my family to not be influenced by other people who believe in other gods. Shine Your light in us, that people may not penetrate us with their lies. I know that the devil is in charge of causing people to doubt You and to follow after other gods. He has done a good job at this unfortunately, while leading billions of people into idolatry. My heart breaks just to know and hear this news. I don’t wish anybody to go to hell when they die, but I know that it is just for You to do this with anybody who is found out to be an idolator when they die. This is because they did not want to be in Your kingdom anyways. They chose a different path that leads people down a broad way to hell, which I will never understand why. Lord, where are Your true servants on earth? How come countries like these have not been reached with the gospel by Your mighty hand? I know that You are capable of turning anybody’s hearts from idolatrous and wicked things into following You alone. I believe in You, Lord. You are the one true God of the heavens. I love You. Amen.
