Pure and True Worship: Identifying the enemies of it...Truth Is...

Updated on August 28, 2010

Learning What Deters Blessings

It is good to know that there are people who take service to God seriously. This is essential to salvation as well as true happiness and peace of mind presently as well as personal growth. But there are many enemies to one's taking in knowledge of as well as growing closer to God; Truth Is...

There are a lot of beliefs about the existence and substance of God. Contrary to what many may feel "sounds about right" to/for them, God DOES exist and is NOT an energy form; nor is HE a feeling or any of the other "feel good" essences that some of us would like him to be . No, HE really does think, feel, and act, react and interact. God has feelings. Genesis6:6 talks about how God rued or briefly felt regret at creating mankind because of the rife wickedness of men. He also feels compassion, which is why we read of so many instances where He forgave and even the ultimate: HE gave his son so that we'd have hope. God of course also feels anger at times and does mete out justice and punishment. These are not traits found in some "energy source"; but rather a living, thinking and highly organized BEING. Inacurate knowledge is not only a deterrent to our recieving full blessings from God, it is a detriment to our knowing who God is and what HE may require of us. You can not have a full and productive relationship with someone that you see as "some thing", or that you fail to attribute reasoning powers with. If you really want a good relationship with God, it would help to recognize that HE too has feelings and thoughts and perhaps we should consider them.

Too, remember that God created us in HIS image. If we have thoughts, feelings and emotions, it would follow that HE does too, albeit of a far grander scale.

Another enemy to our blessings is our willingnes to accept things that simply are NOT of God. For example: Exodus 20:4 clearly states that carved images are unacceptable to God. Thereafter and throughout the old testament thee is the constant tearing-down of idols and images being destroyed when pure worship is restored among God's people. Yet here we are today running-around with crosses on our necks, tattooed all over our bodies, and decorating our homes and churches.

Many believe this is ok. BUT IT'S NOT!

For one, the cross is but another component of the contirived religion fomented by the Nicean Conference from ancient Rome and sanctioned by Emperor Constantine who had all the "bishops"(religous leaders) from the many nations that Rome had conquered get together and create a "new" State religion which everyone under Roman Rule were forced to accept or face death. This is when Rome became the "Holy Roman Emmpire". This is when the Catholic religion was given birth as a counter to the fast growing Christian population, which boomed right after Christ's death and ressurection and the birth of the true christian congregation. Christianity's growth was of such magnitude that it threw fear into th leaders of Rome. who ruled the then known world. In part to appease those who believed in Christ, Jesus was attributed to/with much/most os the pagan lore actually based on Nimrod, the origional ruler of babylon and the one who really was born December 25.

The cross is a symbol from Nimrod's times/rule. It is not ok to wear one simply because you feel it is a tribute to God and Christ. Sorry, you can't MAKE God accept YOUR way of worship. If that was the case, then it would be ok for all the fanatics that go around kiliing innocent people because they think they are serving God. Take off the cross, get it removed from your skin, throw it out of your house; then watch what God does for you! This of course would be done as an act of faith, or the willingness to try something to see if God approves. Give it a try and see...

This is but a brief start to yet another series. There will be a follow-up to this article very shortly but I felt the matter needed to be addressed mostly due to comments made recently to previous articles. Worry not however, all things will be addressed and a clear understanding will be achieved as it is God's will that all mankind receive ACCURATE knowledge now that we are in the last days...Truth Is...

      Yes, yes I do take my worship seriously and thank you for such a nice writing. I had begun to be very discouraged at the way the church has changed and wht it has become. You've done so much to restore my zeal for the Lord and I praise him for sending you and thank you for answering the call. God bless you!
