NEITHER GODS OF GOLD - By Robert E. Hanna



Scripture Reading: Exodus 20:23

"Neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold." How  clear-how plain! The children of Israel were not hearing-  impaired. The Lord their God was a jealous God Who would    other God before Him. God was establishing the  law in unmistakably specific terms. With these words fresh in  their minds, they proceeded to defy the Supreme Authority of '  the Source of their deliverance.

"And all the people brake off the golden earrings which  were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he  received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving  tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, THESE  BE THY GODS, 0 ISRAEL, which brought thee up out of the  land of Egypt" (Exodus 32:3-4).

God's purpose has ever been to establish a bond oflove  and peace between Himself and his people. In dealing with  Israel, He gave them law as a means to this end; and they  spurned it. What a reception for a God of such loving  patience! David prayed, "Thou, 0 Lord, art a God full of  compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in  mercy and truth" (Psalms 86:15). What irony that God was  moved to say to Israel, "All day long have I stretched forth my  hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people" (Romans  1O:21)!

Man has nothing to offer God other than compliance with  His will. It is God that gives; man is the recipient. "Do not  err, my beloved brethren. Every good [act of giving] and every    gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father  of lights" (James 1:16-17a). Compliance? Not in the  Dispensation of Law!


How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
