Idolatry Has No Dividends

Isaiah 46:6-7 (KJB)   They lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith; and he maketh it a god: they fall down, yea, they worship.  7 They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place, and he standeth; from his place shall he not remove: yea, one shall cry unto him, yet can he not answer, nor save him out of his ...

God Directs Steps and Stopovers

Genesis 35:1 (KJB)   And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.

No Other God

Exodus 34:14 (KJB)   For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

God intervened in this idolatrous situation of ...

Spiritual Angst

Acts 17:16 (KJB)   Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.

Living a Christian life and actively preaching about God to others is not a life of ease and luxury.  It can be heart rending and downright spiritually brutal at times.

The Bible tells us that Paul was stirred in his heart as he walked through the city of Athens.  He was moved to ...

Are You Familiar with These Words?

And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. (1 Samuel 15:22-23 KJV)

These ...

Do you serve many strange gods or follow after righteousness of God?

Also he took away out of all the cities of Judah the high places and the images: and the kingdom was quiet before him. (2 Chronicles ...
