How do I know? God's word tells me so!
Thursday November 21st, 2002
Have you ever wondered how I and others who study the Bible know that Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox and others of that persuasion don't read their Bibles and if the do, ignore God's word?
Those mentioned above and many more, pray to angels, so called saints, Mary the mother of Jesus and even Joseph, the man God entrusted with Mary and the Lord while the Lord was an infant. Yet, the word of God says:
Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve. (Matthew 4:10)
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve. (Luke 4:8)
So, Jesus tells us that we should only worship God, not others.
And as if that were not enough, the very ones the Roman Catholics and their kind worship and pray to tell us not to, but to worship only God. Read what the Apostle Paul, Saint Paul to those I am referring to, has to say:
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (1 Timothy 2:1-6)
Paul very clearly states that there is only one who can go to God the Father for us, and that one is God the Son, Jesus.
And a voice came out of the throne, saying, "Praise our God, all ye His servants, and ye that fear Him, both small and great."
And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints."
And he saith unto me, "Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God." And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, "See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." (Revelation 19:5-10 )
So, we have the Apostle Paul telling us to pray to God only through Jesus and an arch angel telling the Lord's favorite Apostle John, in heaven, to worship only the Lord Jesus Christ.
And Jesus, God Himself, telling us to worship only Him!
There are many more examples of this, many in the old testament, where angels have told men not to worship them but God only. Yet, million upon million still go into a building called a church, go to a statue, kneel down before it, light candles and pray to statues of men and angels, ignoring the one and only True God, the Lord Jesus, the Christ.
Do not laugh at them my brothers, pray for them. As we enter a time when the world and all governments are rapidly falling apart, a time when war on a scale we have never seen is lurking on the door step, redouble your prayers asking and beseeching the Lord to raise up a Paul for the Roman Catholics and their kind, the Jews and the Muslims. The time is short, pray, ask God for men who can lead peoples from all over the world to a saving knowledge of Him.
Lord help us.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
