There are many myths and legends about idols.
Here is one surrounding a particular type of idol.
“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
After reading the linked article, one should THEN consult Psalm 115.
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.”
Those who give their allegiance to idols are not enslaved by a piece of metal or word or ceramic. Behind the idol is a demonic power. Because demonic power is above and beyond that of humans, men are deceived that the power of the idol is the power of a god.
In the end times, men will try to escape the wrath of God Almighty by retreating into underground bunkers and dens in the mountains. Some men will even give up their idols at the last minute, hoping this will appease an angry God Almighty.
“And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall utterly abolish. 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; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”
It will be too late for all who wait until they have run out of other options. The time to make peace with God Almighty and His Son, Jesus Christ, is now.
It’s truly amazing how many moderns bow down and/or sacrifice to idols.
Idol worship appears to make little sense.
But then, the spiritually deceived do much that is senseless.
IS the reader giving allegiance to an idol?
There is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God.
“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
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
