“Investigate, Search Out, Inquire”

Blessings folk!

The Lord is serious about not worshiping other gods.

Heed His warning.
Heed the benefit of rejecting other gods.

Deu 13:12-18

“If you hear in one of your cities,
which the LORD your God is giving you to live in, anyone saying that

some worthless men have gone out from among you and have seduced the inhabitants of their city, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods’ (whom you have not known),

then you shall investigate and search out and inquire thoroughly.
If it is true and the matter established that this abomination has been done among you,

you shall surely strike the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword,
utterly destroying it and all that is in it and its cattle with the edge of the sword.

“Then you shall gather all its booty into the middle of its open square and burn the city and all its booty with fire as a whole burnt offering to the LORD your God;
and it shall be a ruin forever. It shall never be rebuilt.

“Nothing from that which is put under the ban shall cling to your hand, in order that the LORD may turn from His burning anger and show mercy to you, and have compassion on you and make you increase, just as He has sworn to your fathers,

if you will listen to the voice of the LORD your God,
keeping all His commandments which I am commanding you today,
and doing what is right in the sight of the LORD your God.

Evil men will seduce to worship and serve other gods.
We must deal with them.
Note, we are to investigate, search out, inquire thoroughly.
The “organizational church” is full of such individuals.
They deny the Word of God - by word and deed.
They promote the way of the world and other gods - by word and deed.
They tickle ears - by word and deed.
They deny the true faith, all the while professing to be believers.

Be not deceived.

If God is your Lord, then listen to His voice.
If God is your Lord, then keep His commandments.
If God is your Lord, then do what is right in His eyes.
If God is not your Lord, then repent. Today is the day of salvation.
