Jesus, the Living God resides in heaven, not things

The topic of who God is the subject that is so inflammatory that people march in the streets,burn religious centers that are considered by one group or the other as the "house" of God. Jesus said, ...believe Me,the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain,nor yet at Jerusalem, worship THE FATHER. Ye worship ye not know what; we worship what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews [Jesus is of the lineage of David] But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship THE FATHER in Spirit and in truth; for THE FATHER seeketh such to worship HIM. God is a Spirit and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in spirit and in truth." John4:21-24
The Scriptures warn repeatedly about making images of God, or bowing down to idols. It is so absurd really when you think of it in a microcosm sort of way. If you had a spouse and that person ignored you and instead went a bought a cheap item, a thing and then worshipped it,bowed to it, gave it money, put flowers before it, kissed it ,prayed to it and sang it's praises, how long would you tolerate that behaviour? God is not a thing. He does not reside in things. HE does not condone sin. He does reside on the cross but in heaven [Revelation 1:5,17,18].He does not allow killing, or sodomy, or coveting,or stealing, or deceiving, or destruction. HE is pure love, pure light, pure truth ,pure joy, pure blessings for those who love HIM and honor HIS Holy and sacred name. If you read the Scriptures especially the book of John in the New Testament [and I love the power packed words and the poetic language of the King James English Bible] you will learn of Jesus, and HIS love, HIS mercy, His eternal truths condensed to a few sentences recorded by others. HE was so earth shattering literally that the evil forces of the enemy of God who is satan, thought he had gotten rid of Jesus by crucifying HIM, but the Creator of all life took the "keys of hell and of death" [Revelation 1: 18] away from satan, and took back HIS life; and mocked satan by doing so. IF you know JESUS then HE knows you, and that is the whole entire worship service--to honor, praise, make your petitions to HIM and HE answers those who come to HIM with a broken and contrite heart. Jesus does not turn sinners away unless and until they reject HIM repeatedly.. then the Scripture says that those people become "reprobate" and though it is not the will of THE FATHER that any should perish the second death, HE does not force any to receive HIM. It is entirely a decision made by the will, i.e. the conscious desire to please God, of a person who subjects himself or herself to the ONE and ONLY GOD, to listen too, learn, obey the truth of God, and live by the Commandments of God, and when a person does that, God gives all that is needed,a loving husband or wife, food, raiment, protection, and children, the greatest blessings of all.

* Whatever the value of any thing it is cheap compared to the MAJESTIC HOLY GOD.Those who worship idols, or rocks, or buildings, or images of humans or their supposed idea of what God looks like,who pray to things, or to dead or living humans and bow to things whether statues or images of things or humans,and worship false gods, while avoiding the real Living LORD,the Spirit of all life, the force of the world, the Creator, The Saviour, Redeemer, Messiah, Jehovah, Jesus who came to earth from heaven with a salvation plan that only HE HIMSELF could accomplish, who took upon HIS own flesh the sins of the world and nailed them to the Cross with HIM, rose again and lives now eternally. HE is alive forevermore, and said "Fear not! I AM HE that liveth, and was dead; and behold I AM alive forevermore,
Amen and have the keys of hell and of death." [Revelation 1: 17b-18}
