He Is God; There Is No Other Besides Him

October 25, 2011

He Is God;  There Is No Other Besides Him

I came across a post, on the web, that referred to many gods,  and claimed that they were all leading us to heaven.      The writer therefore concluded  it is good for us to learn  to appreciate the best aspects  of all these gods.     From his lengthy listing,  he probably included  about every sort of god  mankind has ever come up with.     And,  what was really strange  is that he had Christianity at the top of his list,  claiming that Jesus excelled  in leading people to become aware of gods.

That is a blatant lie.     But,  because so many Christians  don’t seem to get around to studying their Bibles,  they could easily  get suckered  into believing  the claim of many gods, and want to find more exciting ways of worshiping.     The Bible repeatedly tells us that there is only one God and no other.     Everything else that claims any sort of godhood is simply false.

Here are just a few verses to show what God tells us in His word.     We need to remember that God is holy and does not lie.

Deuteronomy 4:35 —  “To you it was shown  that you might know  that the LORD,  He is God;  there is no other  besides Him.”

Deuteronomy 4:39 — “Know therefore today,  and take it to your heart,  that the LORD,  He is God  in heaven above  and on the earth below;  there is no other.”

Deuteronomy 5:7 — “You shall have  no other gods  before Me.

Isaiah 45:5-7
I am the LORD,  and there is no other;
Besides Me  there is no God.
I will gird you,  though you have not known Me;
That men may know  from the rising  to the setting  of the sun
That there is no one besides Me.
I am the LORD,  and there is no other.

Joel 2:27
Thus you will know  that I am in the midst of Israel,
And that I am  the LORD your God
And there is no other;
And My people will never be put to shame.

Acts 4:10-12 — Let it be known  to all of you,  and to all the people  of Israel,  that  by the name of Jesus Christ  the Nazarene,  whom  you crucified,  whom God raised  from the dead — by this  name  this man stands here before you  in good health.     ‘He is the stone which was rejected by you,  the builders,  but which  became the very corner stone.’     And there is salvation  in no one else;  for there is no other name  under heaven  that has been given  among men,  by which  we must be saved.

There are many other references to the LORD God Almighty being the one and only God that ever was, is, and always will be.     All the references culminate in Revelation 1:7-8,

Behold,  He is coming  with the clouds,  and every  eye will see Him,  even those who pierced Him;  and all the tribes  of the earth  will mourn  over Him.     Even so.   Amen.     “I am  the Alpha  and the Omega,”  says the Lord God,  “who is  and who was  and who is to come,  the Almighty.”

We can be assured that all these words are true,  simply because God’s word proves that He has always kept His promises  since the beginning.     There is no reason for anyone to turn to multiple gods and ways of worship.

With the peace of abiding in God’s word,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  let us draw near to You in Your eternal word,  knowing that You alone are LORD and God.”

Love,
Margaret
