We can only bow down to the One True God

God wants His Creatures to only worship Him alone

“Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.” (Psm. 95:6)

The One True God forbids us to worship man or other creatures as gods and serve them !

The One True God forbids us to bow down and kneel before any other god or man which is idolatry. This is stated clearly in the Second Commandment.

“You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” (Exod. 20:3-6)

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. . . . . Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man – and birds and four footed beasts and creeping things. Therefore God gave also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever, Amen.” (Rom. 2:18-25)

 

 

The Apostles did not accept the Worshiping of Humans

“As Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and worshiped him. But Peter lifted him up, saying, ‘ Stand up, I myself am also a man.” (Acts 10:25-26)

The apostle wrote: “And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, ‘See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Rev. 19:10)

Who does Barack Hussein Obama think he is ?

The Obama family seem to accept and enjoy another human being bowing down to him.
The Obama family seem to accept and enjoy another human being bowing down to him.

Is Obama the Antichrist that Daniel wrote about ?

“Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.” (Dan. 11:36)

If Americans reject the One True God and worship false gods His Wrath and Judgment will be coming to America soon'

 

 

Judgment has Come, Worship the Creator God

"Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth - to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people saying with a loud voice, 'Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come, and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water." (Rev. 14:6-7)

Worship the Lord Jesus Christ who is the One True God

Colossians 1:15-20

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,

20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

Philippians 2:9-11

9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,

11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

The Disciples worshiped the Lord Jesus Christ as the One True God

Matthew 28:16-18

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them.

17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

Luke 24:50-53

50 And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them.

51 Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven.

52 And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,

53 and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.

The Obama family have the grace to appreciate a spontaneous gesture of respect. Grace - something wholly absent from your tiresome insinuations.

Paraglider,

There are several other ways to show appreciation and grace without bowing down to a person.  God forbids us to bow down before any man or creature.  The apostles knew it is wrong to bow down before a person and treat him as a god.  This is idolatry.

Ark, at the same token it is also forbidden to have a statue of Jesus or Mary or any other person. That is idolatry! You can call it any name you wish, but it is Idolatry all the same---Iconoclasm!!

Well, whatever you want to say about Obama, he doesn't seem to mind the 45 million dead babies since 1973 in the US... those numbers far exceed any other tragedy that has ever taken place. This holocaust continues and Obama promises to deregulate abortion even more by trying to pass a pro-abortion act that will strike down all state regulations on abortion.... allowing abortion-on-demand, late-term and partial birth abortions, and other things like allowing teens to get abortion without parental consent or notification.

Nonetheless, I will pray for him... and HOPE that he CHANGES things in a positive way... rather than degenerating our culture and society even more.

All this about the npast. He can't do anything about the past--no one can, that is why it is called PAST. Now what he does with the future that is our only concern. If he does something that the two houses don't like, yes he may vetoe it, but then there will be an uprising and a voice he will not be able to ear. Things are going the way they were meant to and Everything Will Be OK.

FEAR never changes anything into positive. It just makes things worse. LOVE changes everything.

Those who believe on Jesus Christ have already been judged. We will not come into judgment because Jesus Christ was our substitute in judgment. He took sin and the consequences of sin upon himself so that those who believe on him would be made righteous, never again to have judgment against them.

All who believe on Jesus Christ are passed from death unto life. See Jn. 5:23ff., See also Jn. 3:16-18. Compare this with Jn. 5:29: To do good is to believe on the Son, Jesus Christ which results in the resurrection of life.

How can this be if God is just? Don’t I deserve to be punished for the wrong I have done, or do? Yes, we deserve it! But God provided Jesus Christ as the substitute for sin and its punishment. See II Cor. 5:21:

“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God”. See also Rom. 5:6-11.

“There is therefore now no condemnation for (judgment against) those who are in Christ Jesus.” Rom. 8:1, RSV.

What did we deserve? DEATH! See Rom. 6:23. God is a just judge. He is bound to judge in righteousness and truth all who have been on the earth. Because of God’s great love, He has extended grace and mercy through His Son, Jesus Christ that all who believe on Jesus Christ shall not perish, shall not have God’s judgment against them, but they shall have everlasting life.

Oh dear! Shouting at each other is not going to solve anything or change anyone's mind. I think that we should all remember that Jesus himself said that he came to ensure that we all have abundant life, that the greatest command is love, love for self, for others and for God, however we might conceive of him/her. Let's learn to respect and accept each other instead of trying to score points by quoting scriptures. Scroing points just makesone person a winner, but more improtantly, makes the other person a loser. I don't think Jesus wants anyone to be a loser!

Love and peace

God’s will was for Jesus Christ to give his own life in behalf of our sins for the purpose of us being delivered from this present evil world. If Jesus Christ’s death was our deliverance from the ways of this twisted old world, then that is where we have our deliverance. Our deliverance is not in any means the world has to offer. Then the real question is how big do I trust in this message of God? Where do I turn for my deliverance? Jesus Christ’s death is God’s solution to every problem generated by sin. This would include all strife, wars, envy, jealousy, denominational splits and all disharmony in the Body of Christ, all anxieties, all fears, all physical lack, all ill-health, etc., etc. Christ is the gospel. This is why the gospel is the power of God. And when it is submitted to in any situation then the power of God is realized.

You are disposed to believe the worst of your fellow creatures. You are also convinced you know the will of God. If you know the will of God, you put yourself in the place of God, as judge of creation. I think you should moderate your speech and learn some humility.

Some people may possibly have such a close relationship with Jesus that they may be more insightful of what the will of God might be. I don't think Arkwriter is trying to put himself in the place of God. God may not want us to judge others, but he does want us to pay close attention to the actions and intentions of others so that we may truly discern the difference between what is good or evil. God wants that. I don't think that speaking out about it is the same kind of judgement you might be speaking of. Obama may just be an ordinary person with faults just like everyone else, but his record and actions seem to be showing something a little more negative and deceptive. Yet everyone wants to ignore the unanswered questions and shady dealings and only focus on the candy coating.

Thank you Sokotra for a fair and righteous comment which is commendable.

Let me try to respond to Paraglider's comments regarding Barack Hussein Obama (BHO). He says: "You are disposed to believe the worst of your fellow creatures."

Arkwriter responds: No, I do not think the worst of BHO.  In fact I think he is a very intelligent and capable leader.  Every historical Antichrist has such traits.  Take for example Napoleon and Hitler.  They were both strong leaders. 

Those experts who have followed BHO's campaign trail cannot help but be amazed at his meteoric rise from the bottom of the pack to become the front runner in the Primary Election, then went ahead to beat a war hero to become the President of the United States.  For Paraglider's information I do not think BHO will stop at that point.  He will continue to rise and become the most powerful man in the world.  That is the role of the Antichrist. 

Paraglider says: "You are also convinced you know the will of God. If you know the will of God, you put yourself in the place of God, as judge of creation."

Here is Arkwriter's response:  I am not smarter than than you, Paraglider, and neither do I have more advantage than you in terms of opportunity to know God's will.  It is all written clearly in the Holy Bible.  You can also know God's will if you read His word.

It does not take a learned theologian with a Th.D degree to read John's epistles and Revelation to know there is an Antichrist in the End Time who becomes a powerful world leader by deception (2 Jn. 7). BHO fits that description.

Paraglider says: "I think you should moderate your speech and learn some humility."

Arkwriter responds:  Thank you for your advice.  I shall try to do that and still speak the truth in humility.

May God bless you.

Arkwriter - You claim to know 'the truth'. I make no such claims. You now say you will try to speak the truth in humility. That is sophistry. Because you still do not allow for the possibility that you do not know 'the truth', that your 'truth' may be error. I see no humility there. Your 'truth' leads you pursue a campaign of hate against your president elect. (Because for sure, you hate the antichrist). That is patently unchristlike.

Also please do not keep repeating that I should read the bible. I've read it and possibly understood it at least as well as you have.

In my experience there is more to learn about life and morality from quality literature and movies than from Biblical scripture and parables written so long ago. Good literature transmits much of Judaeo-Christian morality into contemporary terms which are more easily accessible to most people. I suspect that most people's Bibles are unread, gathering dust in their bookcases. As a sure fire way to get quickly to sleep, I used to read the Gideon Bibles in my hotel room occasionally when traveling on business, but I found the material pretty heavy going and much less inspiring than a good movie, for example, "Glengarry, Glen Ross," "Death of a Salesman," "The Gunfighter," "The Oxbow Incident," "Erin Brockovich," "The Virgin Spring," "The Rose Tattoo," "The Iceman Commeth," are some examples that come immediately to mind. There are many more that speak to contemporary moral issues much more directly than most of the Bible.

Dear Paraglider,

Thank God I am not the only person who knows the truth.  Millions of Christians in the world also know the truth.  The Lord Jesus Christ says, "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me." (Jn. 14:6)  If you know Jesus then you know the truth because He is the truth personified.

You wrote: "Your 'truth' leads you pursue a campaign of hate against your president elect. (Because for sure, you hate the antichrist). That is patently unchristlike."

My response:  I do not hate the President elect.  I also do not hate Barack Hussein Obama.  You got it right I hate the Antichrist.  You have to differentiate those three things.  The President elect is an official position in the U.S. government.  I fully respect the U.S. constitution.  Barack Hussein Obama is a person, my fellow human being.  I love him just as I love my neighbor as myself.  This is the basic fundamental teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Antichrist is Satan's representative on earth.  I do hate him and he also hates me because I love the One True God in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Now my response to Ralph Deeds.  Most people prefer to watch an exciting movie than to read the Bible.  That is nothing unusual.  It takes more than a personal desire to change one's preference.  It takes the guidance of God's Spirit to do that.  It starts with a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  If you look upon Jesus as your Lord and personal Savior you will want to communicate with Him as much as possible.  Divine communication between you and your God takes place when you worship Him, praise and exalt Him, pray to Him and read His word - the Holy Bible.  When you place your life into God's hand and let Him lead you there will be changes in your lifestyle, desires and habits. You will read the Bible and not feel tired and sleepy.  You will want to read and read and read what God has in store for your life.  Here are God's words for you and every hubber that opens this hub. 

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."  (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

May God bless you

Well, if Obama is such a nice guy full of integrity, with a nice family, then why doesn't he produce his birth certificate to show that he is a native born American? What does he have to hide from us? Why doesn't he just whip it out and say, "Here, see I'm okay!"

Do you think he doesn't need one and that the Constitution is just a piece of paper? This is part of the Law of our country and he is not the first one to try and sneak into our government on his good looks and inspiration from the New World Order. Hussein means conqueror, will he be the one bring down our country? Is that a smile on his face or a snear? Will US citizens rise up and stop this nonsense or are they to divided and complacent and will let it happen.

You don't have to be Arkwriter to see the hand writing on the wall. Get yourselve a Holy Bible and read the Blessing and Cursing chapters in Leviticus 26 & Dueteronomy 28. Whenever descendants of Israel mainly Christians in the USA today, willingly give up their blessings so easily there will be hell to pay. How long can a nation last when it is consumed with physical things that take the place of idols and continue to ignore and break God's 7th Day Sabbath as if some other Day is okay. Truly the Hand writing is in the Holy Bible. Only a fool would say there is no God of Israel in the USA, Psalm 14:1-7!

Unfortunately half of our nation (or more) would just rather ignore or deny God so they don't have to worry about doing the right thing. Or they make up excuses and only look at one side of the history and research, therefore allowing themselves to be fooled. I hope and pray that Obama has a change of heart and soul, but I'm not too optimistic. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Arkwriter - I'm afraid you are wholly given to sophistry. Respect is as respect does, and calling someone the Antichrist is incompatible with respect. It is simple hatred. If your 'love' for Mr. Obama leads you to speak of him in such terms, it's a love we can well do without.

God knows our hearts and when we want truth. We cannot fool God in any way. Why should we hush hush when God gave us his word to share with others? It is pretty childish to insult others who want to quote scriptures when the scriptures are God's voice to us today.
