Worldwide Idolatry II
Topic: Idol Worship
Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make 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 waters beneath the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto 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, And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Deuteronomy 5:7-11 KJV)

How many of Christians have kept the first ten commandments of the Lord perfectly? Probably none. If there were one, the person would answer these few questions perfectly.

Have you never lied?
Have you never been practiced adultery?
Have you ever lived a perfect life?
If the person would answer these questions with all yeses, then he’d try to cover his sins. Romans 3:23 says that we all have sinned. There is none who live a perfect life according to God’s will, except Jesus Christ. The Bible says that we have High Priest, who experienced all kinds of temptations that came to his life, but He didn’t sin against God (Hebrews 4:15). That person was Jesus Christ. When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness for 40 days, He didn’t fall onto the devil’s traps (Matthew 4:1-11).

Let me ask you a question. Do you believe that America have failed to stand for God for the last three centuries? I just watched the National Treasure that contained hidden secret on the Declaration of Independent, which it related to Freemasonry, one of satanic religions. Even though this movie was good, but the treasure that the national founded forefather was hidden in the secret temple of Freemasonry. Even today, Freemasonry is still existed in America.

Since we let the other countries can enter to the United States, we also opened our door to the other religions. Now, we see that the Roman Catholic Church recognizes as one of Christian church denominations. We also see that Las Vegas Casio is becoming more like heavenly place, where many people can go and have a lot of funs no matter what their circumstances are.

We cannot have God and worldly gods. As my pastor’s wife said in today’s sermon, America has more gods than any other religions. This is why some churches go astray from God. I believe that TBN started their televangelist ministries from good solid foundation, but as they got into money to be involved, we see that they are making multimillionaire ministries and their faiths are not stronger than in 70s, 80s, and 90s. Now, Praise-a-Thon program is not about spreading the Gospel all over the world, but raising some multimillion dollars for their media needs.

Sowing a $1,000 to TBN or CBN is not what God wants us to do. Although they need money to carry the Gospel message to the other parts of world, we need to begin the ministry what we already have and not what we need to have.

We need to bring the Ten Commandment back to White House, Supreme Court, schools, homes, entertainment industries, etc. We also need our churches become in unity and not making more denominational churches. Having more denominational churches are making God’s people more separation from each other. We do not need title Baptist, Pentecost, Methodist, United, or Calvary before the word Church. These are useless to God’s Kingdom. We only need the church that represents Jesus Christ.

What are we going to do idols? We cannot go to Jesus until we’d trash away our own idols.

But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. (I Kings 11:1-4 KJV)

What is your idol that would pull away from your relationship with God? Is it money? Is your spouse? Whatever your idol is, God would like you to return to Him.

In the latter part of his life, King Solomon turned away from God and began to worship the other gods. As we read in I Kings 11, Solomon began to fall in love with the other women as Simpson did. Unlike Simpson, he had a thousand of women while he was in kingship. As a result, God turned away from Solomon and let him experienced many sufferings.

It is not good for us that we would decide to walk away from our Creator after we’d receive wisdom from Him. I recently read news coverage on election between Obama and McCain. It’s sad to see that they proclaimed to be BORN-AGAIN Christian leaders, and yet, we see that they only go to Christians for vote this year’s presidential election and have nothing to do with bringing America return back to God. We see this occurring event every presidential election. What is happening to this country? Even though being a national leader for his people, it is an idolatry to listen only to his people to lead the nation and refuse God’s Word. Solomon didn’t obey God fully; instead, he only listened to the people from the other religions.

So, what is your idol that would pull away from your relationship with God? Throw your idol away and begin to walk with God.
