Theme: The True God
Memory Verse: But the LORD is the true God, He is the living God, and an everlasting king: at His wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide His indignation (2 Chronicles 15:3).
Beloved, According to Jeremiah 10:11-12, “The gods that have not made the heaven and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under this heaven, He hath made the earth by His power, He hath established the world by His wisdom and hath stretched out the heavens by His discretion.” There are so many gods and these gods cannot save, neither can they give eternal life. And God has commanded us “Thou shall have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3). These gods are man made, and are controlled by demons; and whatever is sacrificed to them is wasted. Examples of demonic gods are: the god of Am’orites, Syria, Baal-im and Ashtaroth. Jesus Christ is the true God and John 17:17 says “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” This true God can also be called the Almighty, Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel. “And we know that the Son of God is come and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life” (1 John 5:20). Conclusion: God hates laziness, ignorance, sin, and poverty. Follow the true God, the Holy One that created the heaven and earth.
Prayer: As you read this message, receive grace to follow the true God in Jesus name, Amen. Sis. Iyobosa 15th October, 2013.
