How Wonderful That God Is A Jealous God


But what does that mean ” isn’t being jealous wrong?” Yes worldly or fleshy jealousy is but Godly Jealousy isn’t, in fact it is something very good and indeed  wonderful.

As we can see from what Paul says in…  I Paul, am jealous for you with a Godly Jealousy. I promised you to one Husband, to Jesus Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to Him.  (2 Corinthians 11:2 )

Used in this context it is something good and it can also mean zealous. 

So Why is God a Jealous God… the reason is because He Loves us and He knows if we believe in anyone or anything else other then Christ Jesus for our Salvation and worship them and not Him, then we will perish. 

When God uses the word Jealous, He  is talking about having Godly Jealousy,  remember God can do no wrong or even think or feel it.  What He means by saying this is…  believe in Him and we will not die, put Him first and we will live, because He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. His jealousy is about His Love for us not His ego, He is Zealous that we know the Truth and He is the Truth.

He also chooses to Bless us even before we choose Him…

Jesus Christ answered, “I am The Way and The Truth and The Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.  ( John 14:6 )

Putting anybody or anything else first before God and placing our Trust in them instead of Him  will lead to sin and without Heart Repentance, death, which means eternal separation from God and therefore all that is good. He chooses to save us from this, it is because He Loves us that He is a Jealous God so we thank Him with all our heart that He is.

Some people believe that God is all for God, if this was True He needn’t have Created us because He is complete in The Godhead. But He chose to need us and His word tells us this, and not only did He Lovingly choose us because He knew us, but He also knows the beginning from the end so He knew we would sin, and hurt Him greatly. Yet He still Created us and He provided a way of escape through the Sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ and  believing in Him will save us from Eternal suffering for what we have done wrong.

And because we believe  He will also set us free from the bondage of sin and empower us to live lives that are Holy and pleasing to Him. 1 John 3: 1-11 (9 ) – John 8:34-36 – 2 Corinthians 22:36 – Romans 6:6-7 – 2 Corinthians 1: 21-22

Is this about Him or us, ask yourself is real Love selfish or does it put others first. “For God so Loved the World that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have Eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the World, but to save the World through Him. Whoever believes in Jesus Christ is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. (John 3:16 – 18)

 What we always need to remember is not to trust in our own understanding or anyone else’s only the Lord’s…
We Trust fully in the Lord with all our heart and we lean not on our own understanding, in all our ways we acknowledge Him, and He makes our paths straight. ( Proverbs 3:5 – 6 )

    Good one Anne ,the key word I think is trust. There is not a lot today that you can trust in with a rolled gold guarantee, stocks ,shares , words of guarantee from people all very iffy.But when God says it guaranteed for life ,forever ,no doubts. all He says is trust me,seems simple enough !


    • Freedomborn says:

      Very True Ron we need to Trust and Trust is part of Love and where, there is no Love there is no trust and where there is no Trust there is no Love. God tells us we are to Love Him with every part of us, we are to seek Him with all our heart and then we will find Him.

      Thanks Ron well done – Love Anne.

      Thank you Karin, and for your message too, it was great, there is power in God’s Truth and it is never ending, God is my Life as He is yours, keeping the faith is keeping Him forever in focus, in the big and small and the good and bad He is faithful and if we really Love Him so are we….we choose to be faithful in everything and The Holy Spirit empowers us to be.

      Christian Love Anne
