Idols are Nothing & Powerless…to worship them would be disgusting

Posted: November 12, 2016 in God's Power Breaks Chains, Hell and Heaven are both real places, Holy Spirit speaks truth today, Joy and FAITH, rivers of living water: salvation

From the mouth of God: “You idols are nothing, and you are powerless. To worship you would be disgusting. Worshipers of idols comfort each other saying, ‘Don’t worry!’ (Makers of idols) encourage one another and say ‘We’ve done a great job!’ Then they (human hands) nail the idol down, so it won’t fall over.” (Isaiah 41: 24 & 6-7)

Then the  Lord who exists outside of time and space as a trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit offers a challenge (using the eternal “we”) —

“…Come argue your case with me. Present your evidence. Come near me, you idols. Tell us about the past and we will think about it. Tell us about the future so we will know what is going to happen. Prove that you are gods by making your predictions come true. Do something good or evil, so we can be amazed and terrified. None of these idols are able to give advice or answer questions.” (Isaiah 41: 21-23, 28)

Only God knows the future with certainty and can predict what will happen in human history. He has given us the future within his written word, commonly called the Holy Bible, so you don’t even have to leave your intelligence “at the door” as nonbelievers accuse. Jesus is the spirit of revelation. He has been chosen, as God’s only son, to reveal truth to the human race. Earnestly seek Him, and He will be found. Limit seeking after worldly distractions. His love is devoted. He desires a covenant relationship with humanity…one where we freely choose to love and honor him. Faith as an offering to Him who created and owns the universe. A free-will offering of your heart, soul, mind and strength. A recent U.S. presidential candidate used the slogan “I’m with her.” I prefer not to put my precious gift of faith and hope in any person who themselves has been given their life and breath only through the gracious gift of Father God. I myself prefer an eternal perspective and choice where I firmly state before the Throne of God at life’s end, while pointing over at the Lamb of God, Jesus my mediator, and proclaiming in a loud, clear voice, “I’m with Him.”

Listen to the anointed worship song “Ever Be” by Bethel Music – We Will Not Be Shaken (Live). There is also a video available. With Shasta Lake in the background, this group praises the only, living, eternal God of the universe by saying, “Your praise will ever be on my lips.” This is how I want God to think of me. Praising him with angels and saints who sing “worthy are you, Lord!” Do not waste another second on idolatry, disbelief and arrogant rebellion. Return to your creator. He who loves you and wishes you to join Him in heaven for eternity.

There is true joy available through deep faith in God’s prophetic utterances. They world offers poor substitutes of fleeting “happy” moments. The world rushes about looking for that next mountaintop “high” experience, but it remains tantalizingly out of reach because God is not part of daily life.

Remember: if you freely choose the Lord while you still have breath to do so – “The Lord your God wins victory after victory and is always with you. He celebrates and sings because of you, and he will refresh your life with his love.” (Zephaniah 3:17) (Contemp. Eng. Ver)

“Yahweh your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will bring you quietness with His love.  He will delight in you with shouts of joy.” Zephaniah 3:17
