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

Questionable circumstances are a red flag

  Stay away from a preacher who never takes time off even if ill/old, who insists on dealing with certain people - that’s a red flag!  Questionable circumstances are a red flag believers have to look out for. Here is how the gospel works; you’re told the news first and then you relay it to others. Never claim ownership of it, instead pass it on, share and never enforce it upon a generation. Treating it as if it is yours is corruption or abuse of the delegated powers. Remember Rome was not built in one day, meaning the gospel is a complex task, it takes all our efforts, and great achievement takes time and effort and should not be rushed. So you pass it own to show that you have understood the gospel. No generation claims supremacy, the fathers passed it own to their sons (kings), prophets to other prophets too, and to Jesus, and Jesus to the apostles (Holy Ghost), and the apostles to us and so forth. I like how John puts it, he said, "I baptize with water: but there standeth one a

Experience God's peace!

Reverend LC Muzembi  "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Philippians 4:8 KJV Yes my friend, stay true to the Lord, remember he is coming soon. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, and it’s peace which will keep you through this journey.  The Lord said, " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you " John 14:27. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. And the Apostle said, " Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you " Philippians 4:9. In short, read your bible, study it through, receive its truths with open heart or the hearing of faith, acknowledge
