THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME! Posted 062120 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME! It is written in Exodus 20.1-3: And God spake all these words saying: I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heave above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God; in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days I made the heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; wherefore I blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. Honor thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which I giveth thee. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal.
Who changed My truth into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever? Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down to it; for I am the LORD your God. The things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to Me; and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They lavish gold out of the bag, and weight silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith; and he maketh it a god; they fall down, they worship. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit My kingdom? Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit My kingdom. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 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. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? But My people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Do not forsake the LORD God of your fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked Me to anger. For every abomination, which I hate, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods. They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed. Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods; I am the LORD your God. Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god. The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
I am the first and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. To whom will ye liken Me, and make Me equal, and compare Me, that We may be like? The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship Me in spirit and in truth; for I seek such to worship Me. Thou shalt not raise a false report; put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment, neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause. If thou meet thine enemy’s ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt surely bring it back to him again. Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not; for I will not justify the wicked. And thou shalt take no gift; for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous. Be circumspect; and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth. Be not like the children of Israel when they served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and the gods of the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook Me and served Me not. Worship Me alone, for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophesy. I am God and there is none else; I am God and there is none like Me. THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME! Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
