You Have a Termite in the Foundation of Your House.

You Have a Termite in the Foundation of Your House.

SUBSTITUTE OMRG FOR OMG AND YOU WILL LIVE LONGER AND BE BLESSED MORE BY THE FATHER.  Sure, you hear it at home and from friends and relatives that you like and some of which are your examples and models, but it is an absolute reality that they are doing you no eternal favor when they take in front of you the name of God in vain.  In reality, they not only flunk in respect for God, our Heavenly Father and Jesus Who is our true and absolute ordained by God example, but they are also showing a lack of regard for you as an example and influence.

“Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord they God in vain.”  (Exodus 20:7) And this means, of course, the Godhead of the Trinity–God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  Absolutely do not take the name of God in vain; do not take the name of Jesus Christ in vain; and do not take the name of the Holy Spirit in vain:  for “GOD WILL NOT HOLD HIM GUILTLESS THAT TAKETH HIS NAME IN VAIN.” (Exodus 20:7)

In the NIV Bible version:  “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.”  (Exodus 20:7)

New Living Translation

“You must not misuse the name of the LORD your God. The LORD will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name.”

Yes, there will definitely be some punishment by God in your life if you take even once His name in vain, either in this life or absolutely in the next, or both.  While a casual matter in society and among careless Christians, and a default in Christian character, it is a serious matter with Our Heavenly Father.  It is more serious than cursing your Father and Mother, and you would not do that!

The three main excuses which are hasty rationalizations, not real, are:  (1)  Did not mean it, it was just a slip of the tongue; (2) Exodus 20:7 is Old Testament and I am a New Testament Christian; and (3) it is not a habit.

First on the NT Christian part form Jesus Himself:  Matthew 12:36-37  A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.”

Second what is a slip of the tongue is a natural expression of the heart.

Luke 6:43-48 “For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thorns, nor are grapes picked from brambles. The good person out of the good treasury of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasury produces evil, for his mouth speaks from what fills his heart. “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and don’t do what I tell you? “Everyone who comes to me and listens to my words and puts them into practice—I will show you what he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep, and laid the foundation on bedrock. When a flood came, the river burst against that house but could not shake it, because it had been well built.

Third, to take the name of the LORD OUR GOD in vain is a default in Christian character, either by training, example, or just plain an expression of the natural and evil human heart; and indicates a malfunction in the building of the foundation of the house you live in.

  1. . The good person out of the good treasury of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasury produces evil, for his mouth speaks from what fills his heart. “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and don’t do what I tell you?
  2. . “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and don’t do what I tell you? “Everyone who comes to me and listens to my words and puts them into practice—I will show you what he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep, and laid the foundation on bedrock. When a flood came, the river burst against that house but could not shake it, because it had been well built.
