“Beware: Do Not Turn Away”

“Beware: Do Not Turn Away”

Blessings folk!

We continue with the Word of the Lord related to loving Him.
We are to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.

We pick up the passage…

Deu 11:16
“Beware that your hearts are not deceived,
and that you do not turn away and serve other gods and worship them.

We are warned.
We have a responsibility.
Let not your heart be deceived.

Deceived in what way?

By turning away from God
By turning to other gods.
By serving other gods.
By worshipping other gods.

In our western mind we think these “other gods” are material things…cars, boats, events, etc.
This is true to a degree.
But, the greater truth is profound.

There are other gods.
There are other elohim, divine beings in the spiritual realm.

They are real.
They are behind much of what we encounter.

We are not to worship and serve them.

Think on this for a moment.

Many places in scripture tell us that God is greater than all gods.
Are these verses saying that the Most High God is greater than something that does not exist?

It would be like me saying “the Lord is greater than all unicorns”.
It would make no sense.

The gods exist.
This gives profound insight in the Word and the Kingdom of God.

We will talk more about this…

For now, do not serve/worship them.
