O Israel, go serve everyone his idol
Ezekeil 20: 39 -
As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; Go ye, serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols.
In the Bible if we put the activities of the Bible according to dates we will see phases of dullness and then phases of hyperactivities. Times when great miracles, wonders etc. take place and times when for years nothing great happened. Is it, that God was asleep during those dull periods?
We will understand this by today's message.
Yesterday I asked you to pray because when the Lord has nothing to tell us, is a time of worry and fear. It is during that time we need to get down on our knees and pray hard. Even those times we get rebukes and corrections are time of joy for we know the Lord's countenance is still facing us. But the times when He does not talk are times when in His anger He chooses to keep silent and allow us to do whatever rubbish we are doing till our sins reach Heaven and He take account of it.
For example in the last days before the worst disasters come on mankind during the time of the Anti-Christ, it is written the moon will darken, which symbolizes that the Men of God will be cease to exist. It is written in other places that the Lord will take away His Spirit from man (keeping His covenant to Noah) and in other places it says love will cease among mankind. So bad will be those days that I think a thousand times before writing the details and refrain.
In today's message the Lord is not only speaking to those Christians who are doing idol worship by making statues to venerate people who are dead or even of the man Jesus; He is also speaking to those Christians who have made prosperity, name for themselves, career, relationships, desires etc. above the Lord.
He is telling each one of us to continue to worship their idols and He will choose to ignore us until our rebelling reaches a point wherein He will only take account of it.
I had warned in my previous mail in the start of the year that it is written in the Bible about our times that there will be a flood of death so much so that one fourth of mankind will be taken away. And we have seen till now the great amount of deaths and this is just a start of things to come before the next phase of change (horse) flows in. Even during this time the Lord is assured protection to those believers who choose to walk in His ways.
Let us take this as a serious warning and cast away whatever idols we have in our lives. All what rubbish our ancestors have handed over unto us let us crush them under our feet, burn them and throw the ashes on their graves (dead flesh). Let us remember the good things and the faith building testimonies that they have passes unto us and blessing them (their living spirit) walk in the ways of the Lord so that we too live and bless others.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, we ask You to forgive us for the idols we have in our lives. We may not have idols made of earth, stones etc. but idols like lust, greed, pride etc. whom we have made gods. The idols whom we have seated on our thrones we cast them down with help of your Spirit to be trampled under our feet, for by faith are overcomers and victorious people like our Brother Jesus...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
