Psalm 115 Bible Study
1. Worship only one God
There is only one God. God exists in trinity form including the Father God, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the son of God. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. We must only worship God. We cannot worship God and other idols at the same time. Idolatry also refers to anything that you put first before God. Everything that is related to idolatry should be removed from your house. In 1 John 5:21, little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. In Jonah 2:8, they that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. In Colossians 3:5, mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry
In Psalm 16:4, their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. In Galatians 5:19-21, now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,Â idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,Â envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
In Leviticus 19:4, turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the Lord your God. In 1 Corinthians 10:14, wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. In Jeremiah 11:14, therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.
