” Our God Is A Jealous God “

vjr5es9bx

When the Ten Commandments were given God made sure to say we should have no other gods before Him, for He is a Jealous God. (Exodus 20:3-6).  Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven 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 shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

 

 

It is written there are many lords and gods in the earth, but as a servant of the God of heaven and earth we do not serve the gods of the people which are round about us as we see in the following passages say the anger of the Lord would be kindled against us. (Deuteronomy 6:12-15).  Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 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; (For the Lord thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.

 

 

With all the world looks at as important the day will come when there will be a new heaven and earth where only the truth and love of God will be in it. It will be so beautiful as all fear and anger will be gone and we see boys and girls safely playing in the streets. It is known as the New Jerusalem the city of truth and Zion which the Lord is Jealous for! (Zechariah 8:1-8). Again the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying,Thus saith the Lord of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. Thus saith the Lord; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the holy mountain. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the Lord of hosts. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country;And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.
