Zeus on Moriah

Zeus on Moriah…

Zeus, the chief god of the Greeks comes from the Indian Sanskrit “Dyaus” which means, “The Bright Sky,” or the “Brightness of the Day.” He is also called “Dyaus Pita”, or “Zeus Pater” (Jupiter), which means, “Father of the Day.”

In ancient times, a Greek general even set up a statue of Zeus in the Temple of Jerusalem, thus making the Temple desolate and defiled. The Feast of Chanukah is all about the cleansing of the Temple, and the smashing of Zeus. Zeus was an imitation of God.

He came as the “brightness of the day,” just as the enemy comes as an angel of light. Zeus teaches us something important: beware of imitations. The enemy will gladly offer you a wide selection.

 Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God. 3 John 11

You only have room for one God in your heart. Make sure it’s the Real One. Your life only has room to follow one course, make sure it’s God’s best. There’s only one Light. Reject Zeus. Choose God. And your days will be filled with brightness.

What “imitation” or substitute has replaced the joy of God in your life? Tear it down, get rid of it today. Choose God instead. Replace it with God’s presence.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
