Holy Cow!

God Alone Is to Be Worshipped

by Pastor John Hamel


“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be     ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”  (1 Peter 1:15-16).” 


Holiness.  All the false religions and counterfeit disciplines of the world have been founded out of a desire for Holiness.  


In the New Testament the actual word for “Holy” means, “to be blameless and set apart”.  


All of man’s attempts to set himself apart and to be blameless before God are futile.  Man’s attempt to make himself Holy without God’s help is like trying to clean a fish before you catch it.  


There's only one way to become Holy and obtain right standing with God.  We'll talk about that in this study.


One false religion teaches that you can become Holy by bathing regularly in a certain “Holy” river in a certain country.  This same religion teaches that a Brahma bull is Holy and that by worshipping it and abstaining from eating its flesh, you can be Holy.  


In the same nation where this is practiced, dead bodies, humans who starved to death, lie on the same streets where the Brahma bulls run free!  Holy cow?  Not according to the Bible!  The God of the Bible made those Brahma bulls to keep those people alive. (1Timothy 4:4)  


Bulls are to be eaten.  Creator God alone is to be worshipped. (John 4:24)


Another world religion, practiced right here in America teaches that one can become Holy by visiting certain sites where spiritual apparitions supposedly occurred.  


The same religion teaches that worshipping certain relics and dead people can result in Holiness.  It also teaches that its leaders are Holier than its followers.  


No one is holy unless they’re Born Again. 


The New Testament clearly teaches that there are no more Holy places, Holy animals, Holy relics or artifacts on the Earth.  Those things have passed away to make room for a New and Better Covenant. (Hebrews 8:6,7)  


However, the New Testament does teach the Bible is Holy because of the Revelation of God contained therein. (1Timothy 3:15)  


God is Holy. (Psalm 99:9)  


Jesus is Holy. (Acts 4:27,30)  


The “Holy” Spirit is Holy. (Luke 1:15)  


Finally, any man or woman who is “in Christ” is also Holy. 


Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  (2Corinthians 5:17)


“…for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”  (1Corinthians 3:17b)


“… the elect of God, holy and beloved…”  (Colossians 3:12)


“I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.”  (1Thessalonians 5:27)


Don’t be deceived by any of the world’s false holy men, prophets, gurus, his “Holiness” Dalai Lama, or any other individual who rejects Jesus’ Blood as a covering for their own lack of Holiness. (1John 2:2) 


Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  (John 14:6)  He’s not a liar or a lunatic.  All false “holy men” are one or both.  


Only The Most High God can impart Holiness to a human being as a gift. (Romans 5:17)  He has chosen to do this through Jesus, not a polluted river, a bull, ancient relics, a dead man’s bones or burning incense to spirits in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal and Tibet


If those false holy men are so powerful, why don’t they stay in their own oppressed Eastern nations and help raise the standard of living there?  


Why do they always target wealthy Western nations where the big money is?  


The answer should be obvious. They’re really not concerned with “bettering” anybody but “me.”


Almost all of the world's false religions say, "Jesus was a good man.  He was a good Prophet.  He was a good Teacher.  But He is NOT the Son of God.  He is NOT the only way to God."  


When I confront them, I tell them, "You're saying that good men, good Prophets and good Teachers can lie and still be good.  You say Jesus is a liar when He said, 'No man comes to the Father without going through Me.' Then you turn around and call Him 'good.'  Do you not realize that you're calling a liar 'good'?  It seems to me that it's time for you to re-examine what your false religion has taught you." 


Without fail, they always respond, "You know, I never saw it that way.  You're right.  It's time for me to re-think this matter."  


And I always say, "You're right.  It's time for you to re-think this matter." 


When you are ready, simply say, “Jesus, You’re my choice” and you will supernaturally enter into God’s Holy Kingdom, as God’s newborn, righteous Holy child. (John 1:20; Romans 10:13)
