1 Chronicles 14:12 And when they had left their gods there, David gave a commandment, and they were burned with fire.
Have you seen some of the new artificial plants today. I mean, you actually have to get really close, and sometimes even touch them to find out if they are real or fake. There are a lot of really good imitations of things that will trick you. There are imitation security cameras that are not real but have blinking red lights on them to look real. Merchant in the food industry will display imitation food items that look real made of non-perishable materials. Some imitations are even better than the original. There is a fabric called Faux leather that many times looks and feels very much like real leather. However it is a breathable fabric that does not get hot or cold as the temperature changes, and is said to outlast leather for wear.
Sometimes an imitation may be better than the original, but that never applies to God. In 1 Chronicles 14:12 it says; “And when they had left their gods there, David gave a commandment, and they were burned with fire.” It should have become very obvious that these were artificial, fake gods. For one thing, it says they left their gods behind when they ran. Who wants a god that can be left behind? Then, just as obvious is the fact that these artificial gods left behind, also left them as they ran off. It’s just as well. They obviously did them no good in defeating the one and only really true GOD. These are obviously artificial gods. Sadly, they ran back to them again. Why?
I like what it says in Hebrews 13:5 about our God when it says; “…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” I can’t run away from Him, and He has promised not to ever leave me. That’s my God.
Doesn’t that just bring peace to your heart to know?
When given a choice in life, it is said you have alternatives. However, when it comes to a Savior and Lord, the one true God is our ONLY ALTERNATIVE. As we saw this week in:
● Original Ancestry.God
● Orderly Accounting
● Ordained Arrangement
● Outright Amazing
● Obtaining Answers
● Obviously Artificial
The one Creator God is truly our ONLY ALTERNATIVE in life. Choosing anything else as god, is having no god at all.
Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs
