PRACTICE FOR THE COMING IMAGE OF THE BEAST ?
We know that such things make the name of Jesus infamous and that all men will get to ask who Jesus is but are we to make graven images in the name of worshiping God?
By Arthur Owiti
The Bible is clear that in the last days the revelation of the man of sin will involve the setting u of his image in THE TEMPLE.What is stunning about t the world today is that there is a new statue craze around the world.
Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
AS we said last time that much as statues are works of art , in the Bible graven images were all considered idols of worship .
Looking at the way things are going people are being driven back to idolatry in the name of Christianity.
If Jesus were here would he approve of a statue (idol) of himself ?
Hence the so called statue craze is being used to make people get used to seeing idols around them.Next it will be a time for all to worship these idols and refusal would be a capital punishment.
BY the way , this happening in Europe where many commentators have concluded that Europe is a gone case via religion …NOT SO FAST.
Whereas in America young people are really living Christianity , this is happening in Protestant homes and not Catholic homes.
For Catholics, they may lose their young people but as the young people grow old , those who grew up in Catholic homes find their way back to church to keep to tradition and since with age one start thinking about God again and seek solace in religion.
Thus Europe’s growing old population is returning to Religion and I think this is partly because of the rise of Islam .Who knows the Statue is 33 meters tall, taller than any mosque minaret.
MEANWHILE THE IDOL CRAZE APPLIES ALSO TO SECULAR ICONS THUS DRAWING SECULAR PEOPLE TO WORSHIP AND ADORN HEROES OF THE SECULAR WORLD AND THEN SOON MERGE THEM WITH CHRISTIANS WHO ARE ALSO WORSHIPING THEIR OWN VIA STATUES.
