In Exodus 32, Moses together with God for 40 days on the mountain.
Impatient with delays, people speculated that Moses would not return.
Then they went to Aaron and asked to make their idols to worship.
The result is a golden calf.
A later statement was made:
“O Israel, is thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt” (Exodus 32:4).
This is Aaron, Moses’ assistant pastor, and he himself was a prophet of God, joined the pagan nation of Israel.
In the next paragraph Aaron doing something that does not make sense to build an altar in front of the golden calf and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to the Lord” (Exodus 32:5).
He placed the worship of idols and the worship of God YAHWEH simultaneously. The next day, people get up early to make offerings at the altar, after that they are eating, drinking, and partying.
God hates mixture.
He commanded Israel: “Do marries two types of livestock and do not sprinkle your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear clothes made of two kinds of material (Leviticus 19:19).
We see this also in the New Testament.
Do not put old wine in a new place.
Believers should not be together with unbelievers. Light could not unite with darkness.
Is there mix it in us?
When we express worship to God, is there any idols we serve in our lives?
An idol can be anything that takes the place of God. Careers We can become “idols”
People we love or admire can be “idols”.
Ambition We can become “idols”.
Money can be “idols”.
“Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10).
As the old preacher once said.
“If God is not a president in your life, He will not be a resident (one who lives) in your life.”
When there is a mix, there will be a lukewarm condition in our life that God would vomit (Revelation 3:16).
Decide today not to let the mixture of love and faithfulness to God.
