Is there any other God?

Many gods, many lords, but there is no other God like Yahweh, "For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him" 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 KJV

According to some people, a god is anything that is revered as divine or sacred, no wonder some animals and people are worshipped, and there are numerous gods, both in heaven and on earth. But we Christians know, that there is only one God, the Father, who created all things and made us to be his own, whose real name is Yahweh; and one Lord Jesus Christ, who made everything and gives us life.

What’s an idol?

An idol is any of these man-made gods, that are worshipped, venerated and revered instead of worshipping the one and only true God. Several of them are concepts developed by various philosophers to drag you into worshiping the devil.

Apostle Paul says, "we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one" 1 Corinthians 8:4. However, some Christians don't realize this.

Now concerning things offered to idols, hear this, "food does not commend us to God; for neither if we eat are we the better, nor if we do not eat are we the worse" 1 Corinthians 8:8. "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost" Romans 14:17.

But, Paul says, I’ll not eat food offered to idols lest a brother who is weak may see me eating, and my freedom will make a brother perish, for whom Christ died, for why should the liberty of yours become a stumbling block to those who are weak?

Then he said, "if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know. But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him" 1 Corinthians 8:2-3. What makes us feel important? It is doing what is really needed, to build the church in love, and the person who truly loves God is the one who is open to God's knowledge.

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

What do you want to see in a 21st century church?

 I wanna see the glory of the Lord come in the temple! Once again, that when I come in the temple, behold, the whole place "is most holy," Ezekiel 43:12, and the glory of the Lord is full in the Temple. I like this verse; “Seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it. When these days are over it shall be, on the eighth day and thereafter, that the priests shall offer your burnt offerings and your peace offerings on the altar; and I will accept you,' says the Lord GOD,” Ezekiel 43:26-27. Now, "…make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it…and I will accept you," says the Lord. There is a river, healing waters; "flowing from under the threshold of the temple," Ezekiel 47:1. "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, wi

The people of Israel

The journey of the people of Israel is a fascinating story, and understanding it could possibly make your own life story too. It began when God called Abraham, and said to him, " Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee " Acts 7:3. He obeyed, and he left and lived in Haran, in a country they now call Israel. But God, gave him no " inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child " Acts 7:5. So, God promised that eventually the whole country would belong to him and his descendants, but these descendants of his would leave the land and live in a foreign country and there become slaves for 400 years. He said  I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and afterwards they will return to this land of Israel and worship me here. Later, Isaac was born, and Isaac had Jacob, and Jaco
