Idolatry Updated August 2012
By Peter James from: www.peterjamesx.com
Idolatry is the number one sin today.
It is therefore the first of the ten commandments with very good reason.
Most are not even aware, of how they are involved in idolatry,
and how they suffer as a consequence of their actions.
This applies to Christians and non-Christians.
The Roman Catholic catechism,
stated the first two commandments as follows.
1. Adore and love one God supreme
2. Forbear to curse or to blaspheme.
Although we should of course pay attention to the above it does not
tell us what the commandments actually say.
Exodus 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought you out of
the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Exodus 20:3 One You shall have no other gods before me.
Exodus 20:4 Two You shall not make unto you any graven image,
or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above,
or that is in the earth beneath,
or that is in the water under the earth:
Exodus 20:5 Three You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them:
for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of
them that hate me;
Exodus 20:6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me,
and keep my commandments.
When this is read, we can easily see how the greatly abbreviated,
but correct, Adore and love one God supreme,
allows any sort of activity.
It is very incomplete and inadequate, and therefore it is unacceptable.
The commandments specifically state what we should do.
These verses show that to keep the commandments is to love God.
To break them is to hate God.
The Word Of God makes it clear, that it is possible to be cursed by others,
however, it is far more likely that we are bringing curses on ourselves,
without realizing it, and we end up as the nation of ancient Israel,
that is all the twelve tribes were repeatedly enslaved.
Christ’s own words tell us that it is possible for others to curse us.
We are told how we should react, by blessing them.
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them
that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them
which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
The apostle Paul confirms the same thing.
Romans 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
It is clear that the way to react to a curse is to bless.
In Exodus 20:5 quoted above, we see that the sin of idolatry will result
in a generational curse handed down to the third and fourth generation.
On the other side of the coin, those who obey the commandment will be
blessed to thousands of generations. The thousands is directly related
to generations, and not just to thousands of people.
Many teach that there are no such things as curses today,
particularly for Christians.
It is a lie.
Unrepentant sin, gives Satan a legal reason for Satan to claim
ownership of us, and to enter into his kingdom,
and therefore his control.
It is true that Christ became a curse for us when he took
on our sins on Himself, in our place, to pay the full price for our sins.
1 Peter 2:24 He took our sins on himself, giving his body to be nailed on
the tree, so that we, being dead to sin, might have a new life in
righteousness, and by his wounds we have been made well.
The Word of God, is very clear,
and gives many accounts of when the nation of Israel embraced idolatry.
We are also told the consequence of this activity.
We can be certain, that we cannot have one foot in one camp,
and the other foot in the other camp.
That does not, and will not work.
1 Corinthians 10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord,
and the cup of devils: you cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table,
and of the table of devils.
In the book of Revelation we see the conclusion of the matter.
We see that in spite of the punishment of plagues,
the people continue to carry out their idolatrous customs.
Notice that we are clearly told that idolatry is devil worship.
Revelation 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these
plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should
not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone,
and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
Revelation 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders,
nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
We see a mixture of everything evil.
We are clearly told that we are wasting our time praying,
and going through various rituals to inanimate objects,
which can neither see, hear or help us.
If we do get a response we can be certain that it is not of God,
but rather from the devils, which in reality, we are worshipping.
Burning incense and worshipping idols is nothing new.
There are many examples in the Old Testament.
2 Kings 22:17 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense
unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works
of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place,
and shall not be quenched.
This expansion of other gods to include 'all the works of their hands'
completes anything not covered by the materials mentioned above.
Today this will include: worship, work, even the 'work of God' of,
'super stars' sport, movies, music, television, also jobs, possessions,
money and even ourselves, our high technology, games, cars, computers,
good works, and on and on the endless list goes. We can be so involved
with God's work that it becomes our idol, and effectively replaces Him.
We should note that science and technology, and the weapons of war,
are directly used to replace the Eternal God.
We worship these things, to the extent that we foolishly deceive ourselves.
into believing that we are somehow invincible, and untouchable.
We see examples of this with our high tech drones, stealth aircraft,
and various missiles etc.
The following verse is in error because it has the word ‘God’,
in capital letters. The context clearly shows that the anti-Christ is worshipping
another god, and not the Eternal God.
The point is that we are already doing the very same thing.
We worship our military and their weapons as if they were ‘God’.
What a rude awakening awaits us, even moreso,
it is knocking on our doors right now.
Daniel 11:38 But in his estate shall he
God (god) of forces:
and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver,
and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
We are truly ignorant in our arrogance.
We are all very soon going to learn, that there is a God in heaven,
and He will be obeyed, without any question, whatsoever.
Astrology and it is idolatry.
2 Kings 23:5 And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of
Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of
Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned
incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets,
and to all the host of heaven.
'Incense' is to do with worship.
We certainly give great prominence today to astrology.
Horoscopes appear in most magazines, newspapers, radio, and computer sites.
Countless millions look to the host of heaven for indications
of what they should do.
Today, actual image worship in the West, generally utilizes small statues
of porcelain, china or some other material. In the Orient they can be
massive stone statues weighing several tons or gold plated stone statues
also of enormous weight.
Regardless of the size, we are warned not to pursue this course of action.
Throughout scripture you find idolatry linked with fornication.
Where you find one you will find the other.
Fornication is the illicit sexual union between two people.
Idolatry is also an illicit relationship.
Let us consider how Christ referred to Deuteronomy when He
defined the first commandment.
Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the
commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
Mark 12:30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength:
this is the first commandment.
Now this should make us think again.
We can easily say, do not be silly.
We do not commit idolatry.
I am a Christian.
That is fine, but how do we get along with the following four questions ?
1) Are we loving God with all our heart?
2) Are we loving God with all our soul?
3) Are we loving God with all our mind?
4) Are we loving God with all our strength?
If the answer to any of these is no, we will find that God is not in the
number one position that He should be.
There is something or someone, taking His place.
The reality is, if that is the case, we are committing idolatry.
This is further expanded in:
Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us,
and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a
sweet smelling savour.
Ephesians 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness,
let it not be once named among you, as becomes saints;
Ephesians 5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting,
which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Ephesians 5:5 For this you know, that no whoremonger,
nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater,
has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
The consequence for idolatry is clearly spelled out for us.
We will experience the wrath of the Eternal God.
Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words:
for because of these things cometh the wrath of God
upon the children of disobedience.
I believe that we might well have to think again regarding the question do
we commit idolatry today? We might not be as pristine as we think we are.
There are many powerful demonic practices,
which go under the title of 'Religion'.
Today there are 'holy wars'.
That is a contradiction in terms and is totally against what Christ taught.
The world is seemingly, perilously close to
the brink of major hostilities, in the light of what happened in Libya,
which has now been transferred to Syria, Somalia,
Sudan, and soon to follow, they hope, Iran, and other places.
Devastation which destroys thousands of lives directly and
indirectly all in the name of God, is normal in the supposedly
We teach tolerance of all Religions,
as we equate them to Christianity.
They could not be further from God, if they tried,
but that is no different to the Western nations.
Eastern religions have a litany of false Gods, which parade as the true God.
Sadly it has to be said that the ‘Churchianity’ Denominations,
have failed the people utterly.
Many of the Tele-Evangelists, consider themselves to be little ‘gods’.
There is another worldwide phenomena, it is ancestor worship.
It is found in sophisticated countries such as Japan,
to less developed African countries.
It is an abomination, and it will destroy the minds of those who get involved
in these customs. We need to be aware that one of the things of which we
have to repent is our 'culture'. As a Christian we cannot continue in wrong
practices, which the Word of God condemns,
such as Ancestor Worship and believe that it is acceptable to God.
It is totally not acceptable, to equate the Eternal Living God,
to the putrid dead remains of some sinner.
We cannot worship the dead.
They cannot help us in any way whatsoever.
The dead are either in Abraham’s Bosom, a place of comfort,
or in Hell. There is absolutely not means of communication,
whatsoever from these places to us, or from us to these places.
Document: Who Are Saints ?
Do not believe the lie that the dead can help you.
Praying to dead saints, even the virgin Mary is absolutely futile.
Because the Pope says that such and such a person is in heaven,
that does not mean that this is the case at all.
No human being is in heaven, period.
First of all Saints are believers who are alive.
It is in your bible.
Many of the books of the New Testament are addressed to Saints
in various parts of the World.
Check it for yourself.
Do not believe me.
If David, who was a man after the Heart of the Eternal God,
is not in heaven, then you can be assured if he is not there,
then no one else is there, period.
Acts 13:22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David
to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said,
I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart,
which shall fulfil all my will.
Note this was said after the ascension of Christ,
which is when ‘Churchianity claims that all the ‘Good People’,
were freed from wherever they were and danced into heaven,
as they celebrated Christ’s victory. I suppose.
The only thing, is that it did not happen.
This is after Pentecost, 50 days after Christ ascended into heaven.
If David did not make it, I kid you not no one else has made it,
and neither will you.
Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself,
The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Being a Necromancer, as it is referred to in the bible is such a sin.
It is part of a culture, and it requires repentance.
It is supposedly communicating with the dead.
It is verypossible that you might see manifestations that appear
to be deceased relatives does not make it right.
They might even give you guidance.
That does not matter in the slightest.
Satan, the god of this world,
the most evil being in the universe appears as an angel of light.
It crystal clear that destructive demons can masquerade,
as the very opposite of what you might think.
Whether we know it or not, we are being observed by the spirit world,
every minute of every day.
Therefore it is not a problem, for a demon to tell some obscure fact,
about someone living in another part of the world,
or to divulge some obscure fact of someone,
who has died recently or many centuries ago.
We can think, oh that is incredible, and happily continue down that road
thinking because of the 'revelation' it must be good, because it is right.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Satan always mixes truth with error.
Satan uses a little truth on a fish hook, like bait to catch you.
If you take the bait it is exceedingly difficult,
for you to throw the hook, except for the intervention of the Eternal God.
The dead cannot generate life, the dead only produce decay.
The dead by definition cannot give life, neither in word or deed.
That applies to the physical dead, and the spiritually dead.
In order to give life you have to have life.
Satan and sin results in death, which is classified as a 'law'.
Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me
free from the law of sin and death.
Dabbling with the occult or the demonic puts your sanity at risk.
This is the opposite of a sound mind,
which we are clearly told is a gift from God.
Additionally this can result in generational curses.
We are told that we must choose life, not for ourselves only, but if we
choose life our children will also benefit. We need to ask the question if
we choose death, are we not also choosing it for our children ?
Deuteronomy 30:15 See, I have set before you this day life and good,
and death and evil;
Deuteronomy 30:16 In that I command you this day to love the LORD thy God,
to walk in his ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes
and His judgments, that you may live and multiply: and the LORD
your God shall bless you in the land whither you go to possess it.
Deuteronomy 30:17 But if your heart turn away, so that you will not hear,
but shall be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
Deuteronomy 30:18 I denounce unto you this day, that you shall surely perish,
and that you shall not prolong your days upon the land,
whither you pass over Jordan to go to possess it.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:
therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live:
Deuteronomy 30:20 That you may love the LORD your God,
and that you may obey His voice,
and that you may cleave unto Him: for He is your life,
and the length of your days: that you may dwell in the land which the LORD
swore unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
The good land for us today is Christ.
He is the green pastures of Psalm 23.
It is a great error to think that these scriptures do not apply to us today
because they are in the Old Testament. There is a spiritual application for
every word in the bible as we are told that all of it is the word of God and
that it is Spirit and Life.
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing:
the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable
for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
We must not forget that God is not a respecter of persons.
Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that
God is no respecter of persons:
If anyone doubts that we are in the last days they simply need to see the
rapidity with resulted in the recent chaos.
In a single day the whole world was changed with the destruction,
of the World Trade Centre Twin Towers.
Since then we have wars and very serious weather wars.
The world is being edged into world War.
Putin is under no illusion of what the present state of the world is, at this time.
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days
of the Son of man.
Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in
marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came,
and destroyed them all.
Luke 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank,
they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;
Luke 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone
from heaven, and destroyed them all.
The point is that the entire world system is corrupt from the very top down.
to the bottom, and what we have sown we will reap therefore the verses quoted
above have an application to us today.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows,
that shall he also reap.
If we sow idolatry we will inevitably reap the consequences of it, death.
We must not be fooled by thinking that because something appears to be
'good' in our sight that it is indeed good.
Of the two trees in the garden,
One tree was the knowledge of good and evil whose fruit was death.
The other tree was the tree of life whose fruit, by definition, was life.
We see here that what is 'good' and pleasant to the sight can lead to death.
Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,
and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make
one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat,
and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Idolatry appears right, pleasant, and indeed even good.
In spite of the incredible miracles, which God performed when He delivered
the nation of Israel from Egypt, at the first opportunity, as soon as Moses
went up the mountain to receive the commandments,
they made a golden calf and promptly started to worship it.
That was Idolatry.
It has always been a stronghold, which has ensnared them countless times.
The worship of idols is a consistent theme throughout the Old Testament of
God’s chosen people. Sadly it is the same with us today, idols abound.
There are two important reports of image worship, one past and the other
yet to happen. The first is in the book of Daniel. It is a fore-runner of the
second and final disastrous enforcement of image worship in the book of Revelation.
Babylon at the time of Daniel was exceedingly wealthy,
it was referred to as the head of gold.
Daniel 3:31 You, O king, saw, and behold a great image.
This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you;
and the form thereof was terrible.
Daniel 3:32 This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver,
his belly and his thighs of brass,
Daniel 3:38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and
the fowls of the heaven has he given into your hand, and has made you ruler
over them all. You are this head of gold.
Nebuchadnezzar the king made a massive golden image of approximately
90 feet high and 9 feet wide.
He demanded that his entire country worship it or die.
Daniel 3:1 ¶ Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height
was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in
the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
Daniel 3:2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes,
the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors,
the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication
of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
Daniel 3:3 Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges,
the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces,
were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that
Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image
that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
Daniel 3:4 Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people,
nations, and languages,
Daniel 3:5 That at what time you hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp,
sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music, you fall down and
worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king has set up:
Daniel 3:6 And whoso falls not down and worships shall the same hour
be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
Daniel 3:7 Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of
the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of music,
all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped
the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
We can see that this was a very serious matter, worship the image or die.
We might mistakenly think 'well that was in the olden days'.
The only problem with that is that the enemy seems to feel that it is still
serving him well and he will employ it again at the end time. This time it
will have the same consequences as in the time of Daniel, worship or die.
Daniel 3: 11 And anyone not falling down and worshipping is to be put into
a burning and flaming fire.
The Charge – The men of God refused to bow down to an Idol.
Daniel 3:12 There are certain Jews whom you have put over the business of the
land of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men have not
given attention to you, O King: they are not servants of your gods or
worshippers of the gold image which you have put up.
Daniel 3:13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in his wrath and passion gave orders for Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abed-nego to be sent for. Then they made these men come
in before the king.
An opportunity to Sin.
Daniel 3:15 Now if you be ready that at what time you hear the sound of
the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds
of music, you fall down and worship the image which I have made; well:
but if you worship not, you shall be cast the same hour into the midst of
a burning fiery furnace;
A Challenge against God.
and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?
Daniel 3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answering Nebuchadnezzar
the king, said, There is no need for us to give you an answer to this question.
Response to the death sentence.
Daniel 3:17 If our God, whose servants we are, is able to keep us safe from the
burning and flaming fire, and from your hands, O King, he will keep us safe.
Total refusal to commit idolatry.
Daniel 3:18 But if not, be certain, O King, that we will not be the servants of your
gods, or give worship to the image of gold which you have put up.
The sentence carried out.
Daniel 3:21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats,
and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery
Their Justification and Deliverance.
These young men chose to obey God rather than men, even if it meant death.
The final instruction on image worship, at the end time, is found in Revelation.
The fact is that at the end time there will be an individual who will arise,
and who will be empowered by Satan, himself.
He will demand worship my image or die.
This is a direct command to commit idolatry or die.
His miraculous power will be so great, that he will do great signs and wonders,
including giving life, and a voice to the statue.
All those who do not conform will be terminated.
Many Christians are focused on signs, and wonders, and this can prove to be
a great trap to them, if they are not watchful and careful.
Of course there will be signs and wonders, however, our focus must be Christ.
Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth;
and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.
Revelation 13:12 And he exercises all the power of the first beast before him,
and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast,
whose deadly wound was healed.
Revelation 13:13 And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come
down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
Revelation 13:14 And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means
of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast;
saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast,
which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image
of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship
the image of the beast should be killed.
Revelation 13:16 And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,
to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable,
and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars,
shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone:
which is the second death.
I do not think that this needs any explanation, except to say,
that I do not think that any one us,
would want to have any part in the second death.
Rather we must all seek to overcome and be a part of the New Jerusalem.
