There are no other gods

By Elizabeth Prata

Someone commented this week on the blog that “As a Christian woman, I respect the Feminine representation of God; which is what Rachel, and early Hebrews call “Asherah”.”

See how easy it is to make an idol?

There are no other gods. God revealed Himself as Yahweh. He desires to be seen as male, He, Father.

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord,
Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving,
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
3 For the Lord is a great God
And a great King above all gods,
(Psalm 95:1-3)

There are no other gods

There is no Allah
There is no Zeus no Mars no Dagon
Nammu, An, Ki are ephemeral as vapor
Amun and Horus are fictitious myths
Freyr and Loki … figments and chimera

All other gods are illusory
Their names hold no power
and their existence is in wood and statue only

Let the heathen howl
their bitterness at an unseen and unknown god’s failure
Spurious and futile gods who remain silent at man’s pleas
Let the pagan rail
their outrage at the silent deity who cannot and will never help

Let the godless who appeal to no-god
wail in frustration
for prayers that are never answered
For God is the only God.

Let the hopeless come to the throne of hope
Let the disillusioned bask in the fountain from the Rock
Let the helpless find help in Immanuel’s outstretched arm
Let the discouraged find eternity in God
The only God.
