Others!

There is something I want to let you know about... here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

Here is a link for an article by unitedwithisrael.org that is entitled, Religious Leaders From 4 Faiths Unite for Unprecedented Prayer in Jerusalemhttps://unitedwithisrael.org/religious-leaders-from-4-faiths-unite-for-unprecedented-prayer-in-jerusalem/?utm_source=MadMimi&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Religious+Lea.

Hopefully, you clicked on that link, and read that article.  I will share a bit (I copied/pasted):

Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Druze religious leaders seek divine intervention to heal the sick and end the pandemic.

The leaders of the four leading religions in Israel–Judaism, Islam, Christianity and the Druze faith–convened for an unprecedented interfaith prayer in Jerusalem Wednesday, beseeching God to end the corona epidemic.

It also stated (I copied/pasted):

The joint prayer was composed by Israel’s two chief rabbis and  translated in a united form acceptable to the spiritual leaders of all faiths in Israel, the organizers said.
“Lord of all generations … We come before you with a bowed head, and with bent stature, and plead,” the prayer read. “Hundreds of thousands died, millions have fallen sick. Save, we beseech thee, O Lord. We entreat thee, O Lord, send prosperity! Send complete recovery to the sick, avert the plague from Your world.”
“Please God, You who have nourished us in famine and provided us with plenty, You have removed us from pestilence, and freed us from severe and long-lasting disease –help us.”
Sigh...

As was mentioned in that article... a joint prayer happened.

To me, that was truly upsetting.

Why?

As the article stated (I copied again to post):  The leaders of the four leading religions in Israel–Judaism, Islam, Christianity and the Druze faith–convened for an unprecedented interfaith prayer in Jerusalem Wednesday, beseeching God to end the corona epidemic.

Because they prayed together... some people would think they all had the same god.

But, they don't all have the same god.

After all, as I mentioned in the past, the Islamic god is NOT our God.

Hopefully, you will recall understanding that Our God told us, in His Word, the Bible, that... no one should kill... and that He said... He wants us to preach the gospel to all the creatures of the earth.

Yet, the Islamic god wants every Muslim to convert every person in the world... to become Islamic/Muslim... and taught them that if anyone refuses to convert to become Islamic/Muslim… then they have the right to cut off their head... meaning murder/kill them... just as what is being done in some places in the world.

Yes, their god is NOT our God.

Yet anyone who isn't aware about that, might think that we all have the same God... even though we don't... and shouldn't pray to other gods.

Thinking about that, made me think about Deuteronomy 6:14, "Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;".

Amen! Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you. 

Please... don't go after other gods... because our God doesn't want anyone to do that... as you just read in today's Bible verse.

And... please don't think that everyone has the same god... after all, our God did tell us to not go after other gods... of the people which are round about you.

God told us that... to help us.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
