What is the difference between the Christian Gods jealousy, and a crazy ex girlfriends?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;  In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;  But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!  They give gifts to all whores:  but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.  And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms:  and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.  Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:  Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;  Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.  And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.  (Ezekiel 16:  30-38, KJV)

“oscar youre a grouch”, upon the earth, and among couples in intimate relationship, jealousy appears as an extreme reaction wherein one partner displays anger, insecurity, possessiveness, suspicion and violent behavior against their mate, or toward another person for having been overly familiar with another.  Even conduct that may be casual and surface as well as affection shown their family members may trigger jealous behavior.  While many claim romantic  jealousy is a proof of deep and undying love, in fact, it is the expression of emotional imbalance, immaturity, and uncontrollable rage.  Surprisingly, then, Jealous is one of the holiest names revealed from divinity to mankind describing the Deity as one who demands exclusive service and worship from those put forth as created beings and living creatures.  This is usually recognized more quickly when stated in other words, such as, Thou shalt have no other gods before me!  Consider the following from the Bible:

(1.)  Proverbs 6:  26-35, King James Version (KJV):  26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread:  and the adultress will hunt for the precious life.  27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?  28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?  29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour’s wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.  30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;  31 But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.  32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding:  he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.  33 A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.  34 For jealousy is the rage of a man:  therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.  35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

(2.)  Song of Solomon 8:  5-7, KJV:  5 Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I raised thee up under the apple tree:  there thy mother brought thee forth:  there she brought thee forth that bare thee.  6 Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm:  for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave:  the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.  7 Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it:  if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.

(3.)  Deuteronomy 32:  15-23, KJV:  15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked:  thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.  16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.  17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.  18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.  19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.  20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be:  for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.  21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities:  and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.  22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.  23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.

(4.)  Isaiah 54:  4-9, KJV:  4 Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed:  neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame:  for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.  5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.  6 For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.  7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.  8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.  9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me:  for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

There are many other points that should be carefully considered, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example:  (5.)  Matthew 4:  1-10, KJV:  1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.  2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.  3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.  4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.  5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,  6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down:  for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee:  and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.  7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.  8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;  9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.  10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan:  for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
