The Jealous God

Deuteronomy 4:24 (KJV) For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

Jealousy is an emotion that everyone has experienced. There are different aspects of it. Jealousy can be a result of covetousness, desiring things that belong to others. We are also aware of the form of jealousy which is simply based on mistrust, and unfounded suspicion. Since the above scripture describes God as a jealous God, what form of jealousy does God have over us.
Certainly God cannot be accused of covetousness, since he owns all things. In addition, God is omniscient, knowing all things, so he has no need to be suspicious. Furthermore, God gave up his only Son, Jesus Christ, so that through his death we may have life. Thus, certainly we see that God was willing to give up all for the sake of others.

So Why is God jealous? God wants the love and attention we give him to be exclusive, shared with no one and nothing else. He desires our full and complete devotion. Doesn’t he deserve it? Yes, God’s jealousy is reasonable, since he alone is God. His power, glory, holiness love, mercy, and kindness are beyond any other; in short, there is no one like God. God loves us completely. His love for us supersedes all other. Therefore, God wants everything that is in us. Let us allow the fire of his presence to consume us.

Heavenly Father saturate my mind, soul, and spirit with your presence. Everything that is in me belongs to you. I am yours. Give me an undivided heart, one that is devoted only to you, for you alone are God.

No More Whacky Worship is a book that challenges believers to return to the foundations of true worship. It challenges many of the current ideas that are hindering the true type of worship God desires. The first of these hindering ideas is the increasing resistance among many Christians to regularly attend a local church. Gathering in a local church is a vital part of true worship. God manifests himself in an unprecedented way when we are gathered together with others to worship him. People go to the theater to watch movies; attend school to receive an education; go to the concert for entertainment; we go to church to gather for worship.

Other hindrances to worship the book covers is sexual uncleanness, idolatry and worldliness. A main area that is dealt with is the spirit of divination. The spirit of divination to pass along spiritual information and insight outside of Jesus Christ and the Bible. It is seen in witchcraft, palm-reading, horoscope, astrology, spiritual healing and so on. Some believers dabble in a form of these practices of divination and are stifled from true worship. The book, No More Whacky Worship goes into how the spirit of divination have infested the lives of many even through religious experiences.

Steps to freedom for worship is covered in the chapter on Unload and Liftoff. Unload all the heaviness that binds our lives from true worship, and lifting off in a life of worship and praise.

This book is for believers, church leaders, and religious seekers who seek an answer to any of the following:

  • What practices prevent church-goers from being true worshippers?
  • Can a true worshipper avoid regular church attendance?
  • Are all churches true places of worship?
  • How to overcome the spiritual bondages and strongholds that prevent true worship? How a local church can experience a revival of worship?
