Idolatry And Worship; What Is Taking The Place Of GOD In Your Life?

13

> Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. GOD ALMIGHTY takes the issue of idolatry seriously. GOD ALMIGHTY is a Jealous GOD. Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Unfortunately today, so many things have taken the place of God in Humans, and it is a Major cause of the Colossal Disaster and Damage we see in people and Nations today. Some persons claim to be Christians, some say, I don't bow before and idol, but alas many have Hundreds and thousands they are worshipping. Anything or anyone you Place before the ANCIENT of the DAYS is an idol. Anything that is taking your time more than GOD ALMIGHTY is your idol. It is not until you bow Befor an image, that is idolatry. Whatever is pushing GOD from being First in your life is an idol. • When you have a Challenge in your life or family, who do you run to First? • Some of you, it is Sports. • Some of you, it is Celebrities, hollywood, nollywood,etc • Some of you, your idol is your job, fashion, money, relationships,etc Listen! Nothing should take the place of God in your life. If you have an idol, you are a Prime candidate to Miss the rapture and to take the Mark of the Beast. I know , we all want all the wealth, riches, honor and all that. It is not a sin to be successful, wealthy and all that, but when you allow them Control you or take the place of GOD in your life, they automatically become your idol. Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. At every point in life, be it in Challenges, Decision making, or whatever, seek GOD First. I hear people say their Family is the First thing in their life. That is a very wrong statement to make. Do you think you can run and sustain your family yourself? There are Families greater than your family that do not exist anymore. Family is good, but it should be GOD FIRST, then any other thing can follow. Is your success your god? You must repent Is your Position or degrees or Wealth your god? You must Repent. Have you reduced the time you spend Befor GOD because of your achievement, money, connection? Have you Forgotten GOD because you wanna pursue your dreams? What will it Profit you to Have millions of idols in your Heart, and you serve them, only for you to lose your Soul in Hell Fire. Retrace your steps today, and Make GOD your Number one.
