This had constitutes to the life style of men in terms of worship, that none among men who had not form habit of worshipped to one thing or the other right from ancient days when the LORD was not been found of them. The Bible disclosed this fact saying ‘And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou sees the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, should be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven; Duet.4:19.
WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD, AND NOT ANY OTHER
STATEMENT AS FOLLOWS
The Holy Ghost had inspired me to preach on a certain written in the Bible which specified an issue concerned the way men do worshipped nowadays, compare with biblical way of worship, and to whom is worthy of worship saying. ‘’And I John saw these things, and heard them, and when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then said he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren the prophets and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. Rev.22:8-9. Lord Jesus made clear about things that cannot work together when comes to the matter of God worshipped saying ’’No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon’’. Matt.6:24. Let’s be sincere beloved, what is called head cannot easily turned down and become a tail, whatever reasons men may have found to be it cause, head remain head and tail is tail forever. This had constitute to unworthy worshiped that some people concentrate to rendered out of ignorance; they worshipped to a foreign female idol in respect of reverenced Virgin Mary, which is not biblical that men should worship her. Mary herself made reverenced to whom that deserved the honor. This happened in the occasion of marriage done at Cana of Galilee; she told the disciples of our Lord Jesus her Son. Said the Bible. ‘’His mother said unto the servants, whatsoever he said unto you, do it’’. John.2:5. If Virgin Mary in her own days reverenced the Lord Jesus as whom men should obey, why would they thought is same Mary that supposed to worship? And I quote, if they deny of been worshipped to her, why placing her image at those places of worshipped center all over the entire world? Even in their various homes of the perpetrators and are bowing down before the image. The LORD God forbid the act of worship to idol, or creating images of any kinds, and had placed curse upon whosoever that put such act to practice, said the Bible ‘’And God spoke all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments’’. Exo.20:1-6. Let all that involve in such sin cease from thing which God forbid, without minding any gain they might have been getting from such evil; for the consequences at the latter end are not a child play, it’s grievous to bear when the recompense day shall finally come. There are some among Mary worshippers who agitates they never worship her, but honored and prayed unto her for perpetual help from God, that she may beg on their behave to get whatever they wants from God. And I asked, how does the Bible gave commandments on who should man offer his prayer through that is acceptable unto the LORD God? The Bible Says ‘’Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved’’. Act.4:12. ‘’Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father’’. Phili.2:9-11
Even the Lord Jesus commands His disciples to prayed and ask our heavenly Father whatever they want in His name, He said ’’And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you’’. John.16:23. Where was it been written in the Bible that men should pray and asked in Mary’s name, or any others? I perceived this error as a great deceit brought forth from the pit of hell, which blindfold the heart of those men who had not believed the truth, but loved the lying wonders that are found in Satan, so that the Bible may fulfilled as it’s written ‘’And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient’’; Rom.1:28. Consequently, the image of this foreign female idol wasn’t the Blessed Virgin Mary, but of a goddess image which the people worshipped in foreign land before Christianity came to existence. But being that those men who worshipped the image do not want to give up from worshipping her, because of what they usually gain from her had caused it. They thereby nick-name her image after Virgin Mary and put it at the frontage of their churches throughout the entire world as a symbol of Mary to be worshipped. Lord Jesus warned against such evil practices that such men capitalized in doing, saying ’’Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh’’! Matt.18:7. My conclusion is this! Let those who put the image of foreign female idol which was nick-name as Virgin Mary and are worshipped, repent from such doing and remove the image now from those places where it was placed. Whether in the church, or house, street, cities all over the entire world, and let them form a genuine heart of worship unto the invisible Jehovah LORD God of the universe, whom our Lord Jesus Himself worships. Lord Jesus confirms this fact and said to a particular woman who demands to know who’s to worship in those days. ‘’Jesus said unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship what ye do not know: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seek such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth’’. John.4:21-24. To them that worship the only true God shall reigns with Christ Jesus in the last day when all things shall be brought to an end; get yourselves loos from any kinds of unworthy worship now and be saved from the anger of God against those who practice such evil, Amen.
Jesus Christ is Lord
