Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

You shall have no OTHER gods! Or WORSHIP them!

You shall have no OTHER gods! Or WORSHIP them! (Ex. 20:5).
(Ex.20:3+5) I the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Which God do YOU worship ?
There is only ONE true God who created heaven and earth and that is the Lord Jesus Christ (1 John 5:20 and John 1......).
Any OTHER god is a false god, the devil (2 Cor. 4:4).

But which God do YOU worship?
Do you WORSHIP another god (other than Jesus Christ)?
Do you WORSHIP two identities, Jesus Christ and another god called 'God' and 'Father'?

(John 4:22-24) The Lord Jesus said, “You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for such people the Father seeks to be worshipers.
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth.”
And in verse 26, Jesus declared that He is the ONE.

The true worshipers will worship the FATHER”! (John 4:23)
Do you worship the Father?
Or, do you worship Jesus Christ?

Jesus found the man and said to him, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” Jesus said, “You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you” (John 9:35-41).
This man worshiped the FATHER in spirit and in truth.
By worshiping Jesus Christ you worship the Father in spirit and in truth, because the Lord Jesus Christ is the FATHER who is in heaven and beside Him there is no other.

The Word of God says, 'you shall not worship any other god', except your Father who is in heaven Jesus Christ our Lord.
Every true worshiper will worship Jesus Christ alone.
(Mat. 2:2) The wise man, like every wise man came from afar to worship Jesus Christ, (v. 11) and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him.
And all those who were in the boat worshiped Him (Mat. 14:33), and they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him (Mat. 28:9).
Therefore, worship Him who lives for ever and ever (Rev. 4:10), and worship Him that made the heavens and the earth (Rev.14:7) Jesus Christ our Lord and God (John 1....).

Who do you worship ?
The judgement starts first with the House of God, that is with us who claim to believe (1 Pet.4:17).
Please let me hear your thoughts.
