This is one of those blogs, you will need to read till the end because the answer is not in the first paragraph.
How can you worship &/ or serve more than one god?
This is the question I keep asking myself because so many Christians are trying to do it. The answer is simple. Yes you can worship &/or serve a multitude of gods, especially if you think the God of the Bible is a little “g” god. The problem is you want be serving Him, the TRIUNE GOD.
It is clear throughout the Bible that God says to worship & serve Him and Him alone.
Exodus 20: 3-5 God said, which is written in His Ten Commandments:
“You shall have no other gods before Me.” “You shall not make for yourself any idol, or any likeness (form, manifestation) of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth [as an object to worship]. You shall not worship them nor serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous (impassioned) God [[a]demanding what is rightfully and uniquely mine], visiting (avenging) the iniquity (sin, guilt) of the fathers on the children [that is, calling the children to account for the sins of their fathers], to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, (AMP)
And Jesus said in Matthew 22: 37-40 (NKJV)
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
So that brings me back to my original question. How can you worship or serve more than one god? You can’t because there is only One God. His name is I AM, Adonai, Jehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Saints, be careful. The devil is moving around trying to sift out the truth about the Bible. Implant small similarities to throw you off. Here are a few things to be aware of:
It’s vital more than ever to study God’s word. Know it like you know the back of your hand. Apply it like you apply your moisturer to your face in the morning. Also read and study the Bible for yourself with the Holy Spirit instead of reading and hearing what everyone has to say, first.
Here’s what is needed to let go in order to grow:
How do you let go:
The Bible and Prayer, go hand in hand. It is through learning God’s word that your prayer life develops and it’s through constant prayer that you desire to know more about the God you serve.
Here’s how you can get started or continue if you need extra support:
