I see so many Christians talking about how some of their favorite celebrities talk about god and praise god and all that, but the question is WHICH god are they praising?
Many sports players, singers, actors and actresses have been talking about god recently, yet they cheat on their spouses, use foul language in their speech, engage in/or support homosexuality, dress provocatively, are promiscuous, get drunk, use drugs, are violent, support the boycott of Israeli goods, accumulate vast amounts of money with little or no regards to those in need; so you gotta wonder, which god is okay with that kind of behavior? I’m sure their god encourages such behavior, but my God doesn’t.
Their future is eternal loss, for their god is their appetite: they are proud of what they should be ashamed of; and all they think about is this life here on earth.
The Bible is clear that there is one true God, the God of the nation of Israel. Not the god of the Muslims, not the god of the most celebrities which is money, not the god of this fallen world which is the devil, etc. The Bible shows us all these false gods don’t hold a flame to YHWH (יהוה), the God of the nation of Israel. The God of Israel is OUR God, the One who allowed Yeshua to die for us all. Anyone against Israel is against the Lord.
So, when you see your favorite celebrity talking about their “god” just take a second to think about which god are they talking about. Do they talk about Yeshua or just this “god” of theirs? It should be an immediate red flag if they don’t even dare touching the name of Jesus, a name which has incredible power (Philippians 2:9-11). Secondly, even if they do talk about the Lord, do their behavior reflect the repenting life of a Christian? Do they stand behind causes or institutions which go against our God? Do they encourage people to disobey God’s commandments? Do they engage in sinful behavior without the slightest sign of shame? Do they seek repentance after such shameful acts or they keep on doing them over and over again as if the Bible didn’t tell us we should repent of our sins?
People can even say they love God or that they love Christ, but if they don’t follow God’s commandments, they are deceiving themselves and others with their lies. Matthew 7:21-23 shows us exactly what the Lord will tell those people in the end: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
I beg of you, read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and once you are done, keep on reading it again and again. Stop being so easily misled by celebrities and/or false teachers. Don’t let someone tell you how great God is only to mislead you away from the whole truth, when all you gotta do is open up His Word and find out His truth for yourself. Most celebrities, and most people in general these days, live for the moment not caring about what will happen to their soul after death. They don’t care about going to Hell and certainly don’t care about taking as many people as they can along with them.
The gods of the world are deaf, mute and blind. Our God is the only One who sees, hears and talks to His servants either directly or through His Word. Our God cares for us. Our God loves us. Yeshua died so we can be saved, so how about you start acknowledging His sacrifice and start living for Him rather than for yourself?
Pay attention before you commend someone for their praise of “god” because their god might not be our God, the Holy One of Israel.
Beware of this world and the deceptions within.
2 Corinthians 11:14-15
And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.
