“Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it:”
PART THREE: IDOLS ARE EVERYWHERE
PART ONE: End Times IDOLATRY: What is Idolatry?
PART TWO: End Times IDOLATRY: Why Do Men Worship Idols?
PART THREE: End Times IDOLATRY: The Land is Full of Idols
We know there is idol worship in the end times: the Bible declares it to be so.
And this will not be some sort of “symbolic idolatry“: God’s Word refers to the idols which are made of “gold and silver.”
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:”
“And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;”
“For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.”
“Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.”
These idols ALREADY EXIST in the public spaces of the USA.
If the reader looks around him, he will see idols are everywhere. These images and idols are specifically condemned and forbidden by God’s Word.
This is especially true in the United States of America where such images are widespread and common.
Many are set up by the government; by the civil authorities using public money and public land. Many are in parks or in front of courthouses,state houses and public spaces throughout the USA.
Washington DC, the capital city of the USA, has so many of these images that one can walk to at least a dozen or more within an hour.
These idols are such a normal part of everyday life in the USA that people pass them by daily and are completely comfortable with that which is forbidden by God’s Word.
IN FACT, many Americans will argue and defend these images and idols, seeing nothing wrong with them and begging others to “Be reasonable.”
And that is the end times deception: these images, which are forbidden, have become so common most people believe them to be acceptable.
Men will not find these idols unacceptable until the terror of the day of the Lord overtakes them. On that day men will realize there really is a power higher than man; there really is a coming judgment.
Just because the reader is familiar and comfortable with these images DOES NOT mean that they are somehow acceptable. They are still idols according to God’s Word.
IF the reader does not agree, he will have to take it up with God.
“Ye shall make you no idols, neither shall ye rear you up a graven image, or a pillar…”-Leviticus 26:1
The likeness of any beast that is on the earth–Deuteronomy 4:16-18
Some of these well-known, revered images are of pagan gods and goddesses. The Bible declares that every pagan god or goddess is a devil [demon] and behind every idol is a demon.

JUSTITIA OR THEMIS: Blind pagan goddess of justice outside Federal Courthouse, Alexandria VA
To recap, the Bible forbids the following:
Images: graven images, carved images, molten images, images of things which are in the earth, images of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth, pillars of stone, standing images, images of males or females; images of humans, beasts, birds, fish.
The Bible forbids ALL of the above.
And they are everywhere in the land.
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”
–2 Corinthians 6:17-18
There is yet still time to change directions [repent].
There’s still time to turn away, know God, know Jesus, know peace and enjoy the benefits of eternal life.

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
