Leviticus 26:1-2 “You shall not make idols for yourselves; neither a carved image nor a sacred pillar shall you rear up for yourselves; nor shall you set up an engraved stone in your land, to bow down to it; for I am the Lord your God.” (KJV)
Exodus 20:4-5 “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything 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;” (KJV)
Several scriptures in the bible warn against worshiping idols and practicing idolatry.
God is not mocked ( Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap) Galatians 6:7 (KJV) so He sees everything that is done.
When a person takes an image or an object and begins to admire, give reverence to, or give extreme devotion to it, those things have become idols. When someone worships a physical object as a god, that person is committing idolatry.
We worship the creator and not the creation. God is the one true and living God, and there is none other like Him. God is Omnipresent (He is everywhere), Omnipotent (He is all powerful) and Omniscient (He is all knowing).
Isaiah 40:18 “To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare to Him?”
God is the beginning and the end.
Isaiah 44:6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the last, besides Me there is no God.”
God is merciful and gracious and will forewarn His people of danger that may lie ahead.
Deuteronomy 12:29-32 “When the Lord your God cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, 30 take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ 31 You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way; for every abomination to the Lord which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.32 “Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.”
“Aba Father, You art in heaven, hallowed is Your Name and only You should be worshiped. You have a kingdom, and Your will is being done here on earth and in heaven. This is another day that You have made and I pray that people all over the world will take every opportunity that is made available to them not only for today, but each and every day that you allow them to see, to worship only You. I thank You for being the great I AM and the creator that you are and bless your Holy Name. In Jesus name, Amen!
