The Inward Jew Nation of God Message:

What is idolatry?

In a nut shell, Idolatry is actually the worship of an image or a man-made created thing as a god.

Yahweh’s Description of  and Stance on the custom of Idolatry

Yahweh speaking through the Prophet Jeremiah to the ancient children of Israel, who were surrounded by Idol worshipping nations, said to them:

“Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the custom of the people are vain: for they cut a tree out of the forest, the work of their own hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with gold and silver; they fasten it with hammers that it moves not. They are upright as a palm tree, but speak not, they must need be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them (i.e. the deaf, dumb and dead idols); for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.” [Jeremiah 10:3-5]

“Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. They are vanity and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.” [Jeremiah 10: 14-15]

Yahweh’s address, and promised wrath to the Kings of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem

In Jeremiah 19:3-5 we read that Yahweh spoke to the Kings of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem through the prophet, who said to them: “Hear the Word of the Lord, O kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem, thus said the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever heareth, his ears shall tingle, because they have forsaken me, and have estrange this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents.  Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither it into my mind….”

Our Stance in light of the Infallible Word

As the Inward Jew Nation of God, in union with Christ, we stand firmly upon the infallible Word of Yahweh in the above mentioned passages of scripture, and in all other scriptures which prohibit the custom of idolatry. For instance, we embrace Exodus 20: 3-6 says:

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.  Thou shalt not make unto  thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth ; thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them, for I the Lord thy God is a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children of the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, and shewing mercy unto thousands that love me and keep my commandments.”

Instead of idols, whether invisible or visible, we denounce these dumb, deaf and dead things. And with the understanding we worship, serve and obey Yahweh, the one true and living God, through Christ our Savior and Lord.

For we reckon that if Yahweh our creator were dead then He would not have possessed “the breath of life” in the first place, let alone breathe it into man’s nostrils so that he became a living soul. [Genesis 2:7] According to the scriptures, man was formed of the dust from the ground, and the man which was formed remained in that motionless state for as long as there was no breath of life breathed into his nostrils. Therefore Yahweh our Creator is originator of “Life,” that is, both temporal and eternal, for these sound reasons: (1) the mere fact that Yahweh inflated man with His “Breath of life and physical man became a living soul,” [Genesis 2:7] and, (2) in the sense that the believer receives the gift of eternal life which is in Yahweh our heavenly Father, and in Christ Jesus His Son, when he receives Christ into his heart and life by faith.  As it is written,

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that heareth my Word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. [John 5:24]

Again,

“He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself; he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; believe he believeth not the record that God gave of His Son. And this is the record that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and He that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” [1 John 5:10-12]

Our understanding of Yahweh’s divine nature according to the Word 

We understand that we are the offspring of Yahweh, and the mere fact that we have life through Him; Yahweh is the source of Life. Therefore it is irrational to think that He is like unto gold, or silver or stones graven by art and man’s device.

Man erred in their thinking

Also, we understand that man in his curiousity to know what the Creator looks like, and being vain in his imagination made a terrible error in thinking that the invisible Creator of the heavens and the earth may be likened unto Gold, for instance, as in the case of the ancient children of Israel when they commanded Aaron to make them gods.

Concerning the Ancient Children of Israel and Idolatry

Apart from their spiritual idolatry, it is incredible, but true, that within a short period of six weeks (6), that was, during the time when Moses went upon Mt. Sinai to commune with Yahweh, Israel grew impatient as they waited for his return from the mountain, and they said to Moses’ brother, Aaron:

“Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; as for this Moses, the man that brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what has become of him. And Aaron said unto them, “Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.  And all the people break off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And He received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, these be thy gods, O Israel which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt…. “[Exodus 32:1-4] As a result, Yahweh’s wrath was brought to bear upon three thousand of the rebellious, who were killed by the Levites who were on the Lord’s side.”[Exodus 32:15-28] The following paragraph is a reference taken from the New Testament scriptures.

A New Testament Biblical reference

A New Testament Biblical reference to a City wholly given to Idolatry was Athens. [Acts 17: 16, 29-31] And the root cause of their idolatrous custom was their mindset in the belief that God our Father and Creator of the heavens and earth is like unto gold, silver and precious stones. And as Paul the Apostle of Jesus the Christ preached the Gospel in that City, some mocked when they heard of “the resurrection of the dead,” and others said, “We will hear thee again of this matter.” But the good news was, “That certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.” [Acts 17:31-34] And with this marvelous result for which we give Yahweh glory, we now go give you an insight on our Walk as an Inward Jew Nation of God, in today’s world with idolatry on the increase.

Our Walk as the Inward Jew Nation of God, in today’s world with idolatry on the increase.

Beloved, as at other times, the custom of idolatry is widespread in the twenty first century today. Therefore, my Beloved,  let us continue our walk in the Spirit, in purity and in love in Yahweh’s awesome presence, even as we study the infallible Word prayerfully, and apply it to our individual lives that, “We may grow in grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus the Christ.” Besides, let us be that burning and shining light in union with Christ in our homes, communities, and nation, that some may see Christ the Light, through us and be drawn to Him.

Finally, my beloved, I urge us to be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as we know that our labour is not in vain in the Lord. [1 Corinthians 15:58] Let us give Yahweh the highest praise! Hallelujaaaaaaah!!!

Well, our time is up!

    • Greetings, Sis. Sharon,
      Thanks for commenting. Yes, many prefer to believe a lie rather than to believe the truth. But the end of all things is at hand: therefore by His grace let us keep away from serving idols in what ever form: and watch unto prayer instead, in Jesus’ name. Shalom.
      May God richly bless you.

      Redeeming Luv.
