6.1.1.1. God is jealous for our love

6.1.1.1.1. Introduction

6.1.1.2. 2 Type :Being jealous of something that doesn't belong to you, which is a sin, or being jealous of something that does belong to you, which is valid, and commendable

6.1.1.2.1. You can either be jealous of what doesn't belong to you or what rightfully belongs to you

6.1.1.2.2. Jealousy can be when you envy the one who has twice as much money

6.1.1.2.3. Or something you don't have, what that shows is that we're not content

6.1.1.3. #1 Commandment of 10 Commandments

6.1.1.3.1. Number 1 Law of the Ten

6.1.1.4. Fidelity, One Woman, Jesus's verse on one woman, Eve was made for Adam, We were made for Him

6.1.1.5. Definition of Jealousy

6.1.1.6. Verses when God is a Jealous God

6.1.1.7. A jealous God - Who being espoused to thee, will be highly incensed against thee, (if thou follow after other lovers, or commit whoredom with idols) and will bear no rival or partner.

6.1.1.8. For jealousy detonates rage in a cheated husband; wild for revenge, he won't make allowances. Nothing you say or pay will make it all right; neither bribes nor reason will satisfy him.

6.1.1.8.1. For jealousy makes [the wronged] man furious; therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance [upon the detected one].

6.1.1.9. Look at what happens to a jealous husband - reference the Proverbs about the man who won't be paid off until he has his vengeance

6.1.1.10. being envious of someone who has something we do not have. This kind of jealousy is a sin and is not characteristic of a Christian

6.1.1.11. Being jealous indicates that we are not satisfied with what God has given us.

6.1.1.12. Look at what happens to a jealous husband - reference the Proverbs about the man who won't be paid off until he has his vengeance

6.1.1.13. In Exodus 20:5, it is not that God is jealous or envious because someone has something He wants or needs. Exodus 20:4-5 says, “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God...” Notice that God is jealous when someone gives to another something that rightly belongs to Him.

6.1.1.14. What He is jealous of belongs to Him; worship and service belong to Him alone, and are to be given to Him alone.

6.1.1.15. If a husband sees another man flirting with his wife, he is right to be jealous, for only he has the right to flirt with his wife. This type of jealousy is not sinful. Rather, it is entirely appropriate.

6.1.1.16. Being jealous for something that God declares to belong to you is good and appropriate.

6.1.1.17. It is a sin when we desire, or we are envious, or we are jealous of someone because he has something that we do not have.

6.1.1.18. Jealousy is a sin when it is a desire for something that does not belong to you. Worship, praise, honor, and adoration belong to God alone, for only He is truly worthy of it. Therefore, God is rightly jealous when worship, praise, honor, or adoration is given to idols. This is precisely the jealousy the apostle Paul described in 2 Corinthians 11:2, “I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy...”

6.1.1.19. It is a sin (as God points out in this commandment) to worship or serve anything other than God.

6.1.1.19.1. God or Money

6.1.1.20. God is speaking of people making idols and bowing down and worshiping those idols instead of giving God the worship that belongs to Him alone. God is possessive of the worship and service that belong to Him.

6.1.1.21. That's why God is Jealous - because if He is in His rightful place then we will be blessed for all eternity

6.1.1.22. Putting things above God in your life incites His jealousy

6.1.1.23. Matieral pleasures, sports, whatever it is you chase promises so much at first but in the end leaves you wanting more, leaves you unsatisfied

6.1.1.24. Like Hosea marrying the unfaithful wife God was showing us that He is faithful when we're unfaithful

6.1.1.25. You have the right to feel jealous when your wife shows her affection towards another man because it rightfully belongs to you

6.7.3.2.2. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

6.7.3.2.3. "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another." (1 John 4:7-11)
