Those who make an image, all of them are useless, and their precious things shall not profit. They are their own witnesses; They neither see nor know, so they are put to shame. – (Isaiah 44:9)

“What good is an idol carved by man, or a cast image that deceives you? How foolish to trust in your own creation— a god that can’t even talk! – (Habakkuk 2:18) [NLT]

Who, like Me, can announce the future? Let him say so and make a case before Me, since I have established the ancient people. Let these gods declare the things to come, and what will take place in future. Fear not and be not afraid. Have I not told you from that time, and declared it long ago? Even you are my witnesses. Is there any other God but Me? No, I know not one. 

All who make idols are nothing, and what they treasure does not profit. Their witnesses do not see or know anything, so they will be put to shame. – (Isaiah 44:7- 9)

This is the prophecy of the Lord. 

I will be exalted among the heathen. I am about to make myself known to them. I will tear down their altars of worship to false gods, I will topple their temples to the ground and leave nothing standing of their cursed…

“Was it not Aaron who made a golden calf for the people because their hearts were set to do that which they desired? I say, my people in this day have also made themselves idols of gold and silver, even that which is the fruit of their desire. My people have sought out those like Aaron who have listened to their desires rather than hear my voice. For Aaron represents the religious leaders of today who have made idols for my people to worship. They have gone after that which satisfies the lust of the eye and the pride of life. They have erected that which is pleasing to fleshly pride in that they have made to themselves vast systems and organizations which exalt the pride of man and give glory to the works of man’s hands. Therefore my indignation has come up in my face and I am about to bring judgment on the idolatrous systems of man. For Aaron has submitted to the desires of the people and has led them astray. Even so shall I cause Aaron and all his idols to cease. For the day of my judgment is near. And as Aaron pictures the religious idolatry of this day, so have I patterned my Word to portray that which shall take place following. Gathered to me shall be those typified by the Levites who stood with Moses at the gate of the camp (Ex. 32:19-26). The Levites in this instance portray my end-time Body which shall separate from the idolatry of the people and stand with me in this last day. And I will use them mightily says the Lord.”

Evil has a common playbook response to truth which is used over and over and over. Take the truth from Father God and twist it backwards into a lie. So…in this case, Father God is packaged as “Mother Earth.” A convenient, palatable lie for the masses. Have you noticed that for every time you have heard the phrase Mother Earth in films, commercials, new articles and books, Father God — who actually did create the Heavens and the Earth — is nowhere mentioned. Why are people so easily led astray into lie after lie about God? Because truth requires a cessation of rebellion. An honest response that God is indeed faithful and true…and to be trusted…rather than believing in our own, arrogant selves.

Warnings against idolatry permeate God’s word. Over and over warnings are issued. So often people think of idols as little statues sitting on a shelf, but ANYTHING that does not focus on God the Father, Jesus his son, and Holy Spirit as truth and comforter becomes subtle idol worship.

Psalms 147:15-16 and 18 states, “As soon as God speaks, the earth obeys. He covers the ground with snow like a blanket of wool, and he scatters frost like ashes on the ground…At his command the ice melts, the wind blows, and streams begin to flow.” There is no earth mother here. Satan specializes in cheap imitations and sleight of hand switches. Thus instead of being grateful for each new day to the true Creator of the universe, evil is thrilled with each Mother Earth festival and pagan earth worship ceremony.

There is only truth in God. “God is not man that he should lie.” (Numbers 23:19) in KJV.  Contemporary English Version (CEV) says this verse like this, “God is no mere human! He doesn’t tell likes or change his mind. God always keeps his promises.”

Psalms 146:6 states, “God made heaven and earth; he created the sea and everything else.” There is little room for misinterpretation here. Either we believe Him, or we, the people, create New Age mythologies to circumnavigate truth and open the door once again to Satan’s eternal lie, found in the beginning of Genesis that knowledge created by ourselves can make us like unto God. Nope and dope rhyme for a reason.

The earth and everything on it belong to the Lord. The world and its people belong to him. (Psalm 24:1). Imagine how all your arguments will fail you when standing before the god of our universe some day.
