Topic # 1 Make No Mention of Other Gods
Most Christians are woefully ignorant of the Biblical prohibitions against saying the names of other gods. We are called to restore the name of Yahweh, God of Israel and the Bible. The rise of Islam and other pagan religions has most Americans confused. Our last two presidents say we all worship the same god. How wrong! What part of “You shall have no other gods before Me!” don’t we get?
Exodus 23:13 And in all that I have said to you, be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.
Joshua 23:7 and lest you go among these nations, these who remain among you. You shall not make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause anyone to swear by them; you shall not serve them nor bow down to them, but you shall hold fast to Yahweh your God, as you have done to this day.
Psalm 16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god; Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, Nor take up their names on my lips.
Hosea 2:17 For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, And they shall be remembered by their name no more.
Contrast with Psalm 83:4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
Topic #2 Jordan Flipping
King Abdullah of Jordan has joined the Arab world’s saber-rattling against Israel and warned that the status of Jerusalem could explode into another war: Our relationship with Israel is at an all-bottom low. It hasn’t been as bad as it is today. Abdullah added Jordan’s relationship with Syria is probably the best it’s ever been. (INN) Ps. 83 here we come!
Thus says the Lord Yahweh: “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went. And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am Yahweh,” says the Lord Yahweh, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes.” Ezekiel 36:22-23
