Thankfully God is a Jealous God

The Wonderful News is 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 than Christ Jesus for our Salvation and worship them and not Him, then we will perish, which means to be eternally separated from Him. 
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.
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 is idolatry and will lead to further 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 or Trinity as they are called today Three in One but instead He chose to need us and His word tells us this and not only did He Lovingly choose us because He knew us, He is our Abba Father our Daddy and He also knows the beginning from the end so He knew we would sin, and 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.
Jesus also set us free from the bondage of sin and as we put our flesh to death which causes us to sin by choosing to reject evil and doing good, The Holy Spirit will empower us to do so as we  walk in His Fruit and so we live lives that are Holy and pleasing to God as we are conformed into the image of Jesus and perfected in His Love, and so we will have no fleshy fear of Him only Respect and Awe.  
God also chooses to Bless us even before we choose Him… 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 fleshy 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)
Thank you for listening and God bless you and your Loved ones greatly.
Christian Love from both of us – Anne

    In saying that God is jealous for our affection and allegiance is something we should feel flattered about .That He would want to be jealous of my affection, me, so imperfect and mortal, just blows my mind. So I guess we shouldn’t have divided loyalties, be sold out to Jesus would be a good way .Thanks Anne for reminding us.
