Come out, your graven images cannot save you
Isaiah 45:19,20 -
I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.
Some of the Catholics who received my yesterdays and previous messages on the same topic got offended. They expect me to send only nice messages which do not bring change in a person. They wanted me to be a doctor who gives a chocolate and not medicine to a patient who has deep infection just to keep the patient happy. That infection will one day spread and kill that person.
The Lord too did not hide anything right from the start. He knew of the deceit even before He created this world, but He also knew The Way would save His people. He states in His message for us today to those who are willing to listen, He did not create you and me in vanity to perish.
A brother responded to my mail asking do not the Catholics and Christians worship the same God.
Even though the Catholics worship the same God yet they also worship other gods like the Israelites did during the time of Jezebel (King Ahab). The Catholic Church is making them do all the things which God said not to. This will get them to be put along with the goats on the Judgment Day to suffer and perish even worse than what non-believers would, just what Satan plans for them.
Today the Lord is calling all among them to put away your graven images and worship the Lord in Spirit and Truth. It is only by His Word and His Spirit that we can know Him and come to Him so as to receive eternal life.
Whatever I spoke in my mails was told to the people of God even by the early Men of God in the Old Testament and also in the New Testament by Jesus Christ, by the Apostles and by other Men of God.
It is very simple - do you want God or your graven images? Your graven images do not exist in truth and will not save you. Satan has deceived you in thinking they exist.
Simeon while holding 8 day old baby Jesus in his arms spoke about Jesus' mission and at the same time also spoke to Mary about how after her death her name would be misused to expose the hearts of many.
Let us not harden our hearts with these graven images and let us heed to the warning which the Lord has been giving us since ancient and let us turn back to Him.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, Your Word is Light unto our path and lamp unto our feet. Lord, without your Word we would be in darkness and prey to the deceiver who is out to destroy us by bring us into your wrath. Lord, we pray that the hearts of those who are deceived by the evil one would not harden and their eyes are opened to see You and know You...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;
35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
