The First Commandment- The Beginning of Obedience

THOU SHALT HAVE NONE OTHER GODS BEFORE ME.

Hello and welcome again dear readers! May I start by saying I am more than glad to be writing in this blog, for it has yielded many results!

So today our topic of thought is the first commandment, stated above. “Thou shalt have no other Gods before Me.”

This, my friends, is the beginning of obedience. God created the Ten Commandments so that us humans would know exactly what to do to please God and to be considered on the right path. If these rules or laws hadn’t been written, then people would just blame God for not specifying what to do and in the shadow of that claim, they would just go on sinning and sinning,Β  but at the same time appear “innocent” before men.

So, let us analyze this commandment. “Thou shalt have no other Gods before Me.”

Now, some people think that God is implying that there are other Gods in this universe and that He is restricting us from worshiping them. Some clever folk may take advantage of this and make people think that our God is restricting us from knowing other gods. But this is not the truth.

Now, you all know that there are a lot, and I mean like hundreds of different religions out there in the world. Each religion has their own god or goddess. There are some religions with even multiple gods. But, let me tell you, this may hurt some of you, but I have to say this. THERE IS NO OTHER GOD THAN JESUS.

Now, don’t misunderstand me as trying to imply that Jehovah isn’t there. Jehovah and Jesus are the same thing. Jesus is the manifestation of God. He is the manifestation of God’s words, sent to the earth to deliver us those words. So Jesus, Jehovah and the Holy Spirit are one in three.

Us mortal humans find this hard to understand, I know, but there will come a day when everything becomes clear as crystal to us.

Now let me jump back on to the topic of thought. As I said, God is not implying that there are other Gods in the universe. God is the one and only God. There has never been, is not, and will never be another “god”. But then what was God talking about in His commandment?

Of course, God knows that people will create their own Gods out of clay and stone and worship them. Even the people of Israel that God saved through MosesΒ  did it to Him behind His back. That’s the specialty of us humans. We take advantage of all chances we get to denounce the truth. Sometimes I wonder, God saved the people of Israel so miraculously, by even splitting the sea for them. But then even after witnessing the clear miracles of God and His demonstration of His love for them, then why would they go on and create their own god out of gold?

I mean, what use is it to worship something that they know they made themselves? Why would they even think of disobeying such a powerful God, when they themselves saw how God saved them and then drowned the enemy’s armies in the sea?

Now, we ourselves are not any better than the people of that time. In fact, I’m sorry to say this, but we are worse. We are hurtful and disloyal. We cannot be trusted at all. That’s just the truth.

Apart from the fact that God knows we humans will create our own gods, He also meant to warn us from worshiping anything other than Him. I know that just sounded a bit strange, but I’ll explain. In my next post, of course!

I’d like to thank all my readers for being open-minded and for commenting so much and for participating so actively in my blog. I guarantee you, this blog will never serve you a false piece of information. I’ll make sure of that. I would never even think of writing away lies to my readers, for God would punish me heavily if I ever did that. I fear God a lot, for that was the way I was raised, and it will never change. It’s just one of the things that’s etched deep in my heart.

Anyways, comment all you want, let me know your opinions, and may God bless you abundantly!

  2. I try very hard to worship only Jesus as my Lord and God. Everyday I have to check inside to make sure I’m not worshiping money, jealousy or stuff like that. It is exactly what you wrote about – obedience, self discipline… your article has been a blessing to me, thank you ~Tj
