No Other Gods

Scriptures: Exodus 20 v 1-6; 1 John 5 v 21; Daniel 3 v 25; Matthew 24 v 4-11. 

The first commandment God gave to Moses was You shall have no other gods but Me. This was for the Jewish people to have Almighty God as the one they worship forever. God was busy leading Israel into the Promised Land and He was giving them rules to live by.

All the other Gentile tribes worshipped false gods and did not know the God of Israel. They had heard of the mighty miracles He did to get them out of Egypt. They had heard about Him bringing them through the Wilderness of Sin and how He opened the Red Sea for them but drowned the Egyptian army. And the Gentiles were afraid. They were afraid and built higher and thicker walls around their cities.

Especially around Jericho. The walls were thick enough that 6 chariots could ride abreast around the top of the very high walls. When the Israelites were led there by Joshua, God instructed Joshua to send the fighting men of Israel to walk around the walls silently once a day for six days. On the seventh day they were to walk around the walls blowing trumpets loudly. What sonic boom God added to the noise is not mentioned but the walls of Jericho did not crumble, they disappeared straight down into the ground!

The people of Jericho thought they were safe behind their barricade but they were utterly defeated by the power of God. Whatever gods they worshipped were not able to save them.
If you read "The Fourth Man" on our blog you will see what happened to Nebuchadnezzar when he tried to force the Jews to worship his huge golden idol. He threw the three Jews into the fiery furnace and saw four men walking around inside the flames totally un touched by flame or smoke. Nebuchadnezzar said the fourth man was like the Son of God and commanded the Babylonians to worship the one true God who actually does care about His People, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Whenever Israel followed a false god she first became captivated by idols and images and then held captive by a foreign nation. After many years she would be released: in Egypt it was 400 years of captivity; in Babylon for 70 years; scattered throughout the world in AD70 for nearly 2000 years.
But God Almighty always brought them back to the promised land as this was His Covenant with His Chosen people.

When we turn aside from God after idols we become ensnared in cults. A cult can be defined as a group of people who choose to worship a god other than our Father and His Son Jesus Christ. There are thousands of Christian groups who are called sects or cults because they worship God contrary to the teachings of the Bible. They are deceived.

Churches that fall into this category are Roman Catholic; Anglican; Presbytarian; Methodist; Rhema and related groups; Jehovah's Witnesses; Mormons; Seventh Day Adventists; etc.  Roman Catholic is a revival of the Babylonian ancient religion which was the root of eastern Mysticism. Anglicans do not preach the full gospel. There may be born again, Holy Spirit filled Christians that are Anglicans but the general teachings are not "You must be born again". This also. Applies to the other main line churches.

In john 3 v 3 Jesus said that to even perceive the Kingdom of Heaven you must be born again. So any church trying to climb up some other way is like a thief and a robber John 10 v 1.
Rhema and related churches are built on a false foundation. Read Don McConnell's thesis "Another Gospel"

(Oral Robert's University) 1986. He proved that Kenneth Hagin Snr plagiarised the works of E.W.Kenyon to produce the foundational teachings of the Rhema "Word-based" church. McConnell spoke to (the late) Hagin about the plagiariesed books. Hagin said he did not plagiarise the books but the same spirit that spoke to Kenyon spoke to him.

McConnell went to visit EW Kenyon's widow. She knew all about what Hagin had done but they had let it go. He asked about Kenyon's Christianity. His widow said HE WAS NEVER A CHRISTIAN!! He followed Unity; New Thought and Christian Science!! So the same spirit that spoke to Kenyon and Hagin was NOT the Holy Spirit of truth. This was a huge shock to me and many others who had no idea.

I do not share these truths to hurt you but to warn you. God called me in 1979 to be an Intercessor and a Watchman to the universal church of born again believers. If I do not tell you then how will you know. If I do not obey God then if you die in your sins I am guilty too. I am more afraid of God's wrath than anything Man can do to me.

The onus is on you to make absolutely sure that the God you are following is the God of the Holy Bible. Jesus said there would be many following a false Christ. Make sure its not you. It has so far cost me everything I ever had to bring this truth to people. I lost my home, cars, marriage, business, bank account, as satan tried to stop me from sharing the truth.

By God's grace alone am I still alive to deliver this message today. The truth is written in the Bible but people's hearts have been blinded by idols. They run after famous preachers, TV Evangelists, and make idols of them and like Israel go into captivity for years.

When you seek the true and living God with all your heart Jesus will come alive in you the moment you become born again. By their fruits you will know them. How many of the so-called great preachers are not also Freemasons who serve Lucifer. I will name a couple. Billy Graham. Kenneth Copeland. Benny Hinn. Joyce Meyer. Rodney Howard-Brown.

If these are wolves in sheep's clothing, who else is deceiving you?

We are in the final countdown beloved brothers and sisters. Jesus is already sorting the sheep from the goats. Which pen will you be in when the Rapture comes? Antichrist deceivers can also do miracles and healings to draw multitudes away from real Jesus. So take stock of where you are right now. Make sure your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life and that your sins are Bloodwashed not whitewashed. If you have not repented of sin in your life, cleansed by the Blood of Jesus, baptized by full immersion in water you are not saved and your name is not written in the Lamb's Book. The fruits are found in Galatians 5 v 22-23.

Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that every person who reads this message will know without doubt their true standing with you. They have free will to choose whether to follow your ways or not. Lord You said that if I did not tell them the danger and that their eternal life was not secure that I would be guilty of their eternal death. Jesus died to save us all and I do not want to miss eternity in Heaven. In Jesus' name. Amen.
