“Therefore I will yet bring charges against you,” says theLord,
“And against your children’s children I will bring charges.
10 For pass beyond the coasts of Cyprus and see,
Send to Kedar and consider diligently,
And see if there has been such a thing.
11 Has a nation changed its gods,
Which are not gods?
But My people have changed their Glory
For what does not profit.
We finished up god's of war last night with the men and the book could not have finished a better way. Basically all the different idols that we have discussed boils down to the "god of me." When you do what you want to do, when you want to do it, how you want to do it, with no regard, respect, or reverence for Jesus Christ, then you my friend are serving the god of me. You have made yourself a god. There are serious consequences to this action. The Word of God addresses this in Jeremiah 2. In verse 11 God says to the people of Israel look around at all the other nations. Are they changing their gods? The answer is no, even though they are serving false gods. They are loyal and reverent and obedient. The same is true for you today there are many religions that are not serving Jesus Christ; however, they follow what they believe with loyalty and commitment. Do we do serve that way today as Christians? Do we serve with the love and commitment that is required of us? Or do we do, act say, treat others, support the ministry financially and with time and effort, do we use our gifts, do we walk worthy, do we love and provide the way His Word says or do we do whatever we want to do, tell people we are Christians and expect all to be well. Verse 9 should make you stop and think a minute, God says because you seek after these false things and forsake what you have been taught, then charges will be brought against you. He goes on to say that these charges will also be brought against your children, do you care about these charges. Do you care about your eternity and your children's eternity. You know something just hit me there are some of you who are so arrogant towards God that you actually just thought that God has no right, well my friend there in lies your problem and until you decide that you are not the center of the universe and the whole world does not revolve around you then you will do what you want to do. Listen to me, you will do this until God has had enough and when that day comes woe is to the man who refuses to be the husband (wife), father (mother), friend, servant of the most High that God is calling them to be!
