Leviticus 26:1 Ye shall make you no idols or graven image.


Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by today.

Today is another day that the LORD GOD has made! I thank GOD for a sunny day today. We could have snow and I would rather have summer time weather.

Leviticus 26:1

“Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.”

King James Version (KJV)

There are many images of people and things that get in the way of us keeping our attention on our beloved GOD. People since the time when Moses went up on the Mountain called Sinai in Exodus chapter 9… he came down the mountain to see what horrible things the people of Israel were doing when Moses went up the mountain for 40 days.

Aaron made an idol, a golden calf for them by their request for them to worship.

Idol worship is still done all over the world and yet those who do this wonder why GOD has allowed bad things to happen to them. They have turned their back on GOD and will not want to hear people talk about GOD and worshiping HIM. But will want GOD to protect and bless them at all times. They pick and choose as to how they want GOD and HIS son JESUS in their lives.

Which I feel idol worshiping in one of our problems. This idol worship we maybe doing can be money, sex, drugs, people, man made items, such as flags, statues anything of the earth. And we may not even realize what we are doing when we do so! The only being we should have before us is our ever loving GOD.

For an example. I see people get all caught up in the celebration of July 4th, and that it represents the 13 colonies that were free from the king of england. From what I understand as how history explained it when I studied it in school.

They came up with a flag had all of the 13 colonies represented on it. This has been glorified/idolized by many ever since. It is one thing to like the flag and the respect the history of it. But to idolize it no.

Isaiah Chapter 44

9 They that make a graven image [are] all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they [are] their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.

The earth is GOD’S creation. None of us own it. We share, we do not take from others to claim it as your own.

Psalms 24:1

“(A Psalm of David.) The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”

King James Version (KJV)

Greed, hate, and power is an evil condition that has spread this disease all over the world.

Proverbs 8:13

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.”

King James Version (KJV)

See my point is, we need to be unified, and to serve the same GOD, know that JESUS is or savior. Ignore the symbols and idols others make respectfully and move on. For you truly know who should be glorified. GOD and HIS word of GOD.

Don’t idolize anyone or thing on or in this as our GOD has said. For we then are close to making that thing or person a god. Not good.

Exodus 20:3 – 20:6

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee 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:

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself 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;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Let us stay focused on what GOD will have us to do at all times.I is so easy to be distracted and get off the tight track. Stay in prayer, keep your eyes on the LORD. Things will get tougher as we go along with the COVID-19 still around. Focus, focus and focus on heavenly things of our GOD at all times and stay blessed!

Peace!
