God Is Against Statue Worship
This morning an angel of the Lord(God) made me stand up to write. I was surprised and terrified at first. Sitting on a couch, I was holding my smartphone close to my face. Suddenly the room where I am becomes bright. I was wondering to myself "why suddenly the room becomes bright its gloomy outside and it's about to rain? Where's the light coming from? I was terrified.
An angel is there with me. He turned all the lights on without touching the switches. Even my head torch that I use for work turned on. I was amazed by his power. But I was so shocked and afraid that I ran away from the room. But after that I realized that God wants me to do something for Him. That's why the angel turned the lights on. My computer is there. It's been days that I've been thinking how to properly open to the people of the world God's requirements for salvation.
I will share to you the law of God one by one. It will be elaborate, but it will be complete. Complete enough that you will be saved if you follow it.
****HOW TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE AND ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN****
God wants to give everybody a chance to be saved because the end of this world is near.
***While still in Jerusalem, Someone asked Jesus this question:
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”............Matthew 22:36-40
***Does the true God (spirit in nature) accept statues, gods, goddesses, saints, sculpture of any kind, gold, silver, metal, precious stones, religious icons or anything on this earth to represent him?
---Answer: No. God hates when people worship this things instead of Him.
****BASIS: THIS IS THE LAW OF GOD, FOLLOW THIS FIRST STEP AND YOU WILL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
(It is long but I need to show to you how serious the matter is. The whole Holy Scriptures is full of this but your religion hide this from you.)
"Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it. I am the LORD your God.
The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; they have eyes, but do not see; they have ears, but do not hear, nor is there any breath in their mouths. Those who make them become like them, so do all who trust in them!
“You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
1 Samuel 12:21
Do not turn away after useless idols. They can do you no good, nor can they rescue you, because they are useless.
2 Chronicles 24:18
They abandoned the temple of the LORD, the God of their ancestors, and worshiped Asherah poles and idols. Because of their guilt, God’s anger came on Judah and Jerusalem.
They angered him with their high places; they aroused his jealousy with their idols.
They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them.
Then you will desecrate your idols overlaid with silver and your images covered with gold; you will throw them away like a menstrual cloth and say to them, “Away with you!”
For in that day every one of you will reject the idols of silver and gold your sinful hands have made.
“I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols.
All who make idols are nothing, and the things they treasure are worthless. Those who would speak up for them are blind; they are ignorant, to their own shame.
All the makers of idols will be put to shame and disgraced; they will go off into disgrace together.
“Gather together and come; assemble, you fugitives from the nations. Ignorant are those who carry about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save.
When you cry out for help, let your collection of idols save you! The wind will carry all of them off, a mere breath will blow them away. But whoever takes refuge in me will inherit the land and possess my holy mountain.”
This is what the LORD says: “What fault did your ancestors find in me, that they strayed so far from me? They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves.
“Everyone is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed by his idols. The images he makes are a fraud; they have no breath in them.
“But days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will punish her idols, and throughout her land the wounded will groan.
Because of all your detestable idols, I will do to you what I have never done before and will never do again.
Your altars will be demolished and your incense altars will be smashed; and I will slay your people in front of your idols.
I will lay the dead bodies of the Israelites in front of their idols, and I will scatter your bones around your altars.
Wherever you live, the towns will be laid waste and the high places demolished, so that your altars will be laid waste and devastated, your idols smashed and ruined, your incense altars broken down, and what you have made wiped out.
Then in the nations where they have been carried captive, those who escape will remember me—how I have been grieved by their adulterous hearts, which have turned away from me, and by their eyes, which have lusted after their idols. They will loathe themselves for the evil they have done and for all their detestable practices.
1 John 5:21
Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
2 Kings 22:17
Because they have forsaken me and burned incense to other gods and aroused my anger by all the idols their hands have made, my anger will burn against this place and will not be quenched.’
Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good.”
They are all senseless and foolish; they are taught by worthless wooden idols.
Everyone is senseless and without knowledge; every goldsmith is shamed by his idols. The images he makes are a fraud; they have no breath in them.
Do any of the worthless idols of the nations bring rain? Do the skies themselves send down showers? No, it is you, LORD our God. Therefore our hope is in you, for you are the one who does all this.
I will repay them double for their wickedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land with the lifeless forms of their vile images and have filled my inheritance with their detestable idols.”
“Do not make any idols.
They must no longer offer any of their sacrifices to the goat idols to whom they prostitute themselves. This is to be a lasting ordinance for them and for the generations to come.’
“‘Do not turn to idols or make metal gods for yourselves. I am the LORD your God.
******Throw away or destroy any gods, saints, sculpture or image to be worship, any idol, false god, sculpture of animals or plants or man to be worshiped, or any religious icon that is being worshiped. Throw them all away or destroy them. God hates this things. If you have this things or worshiping them or praying on them, you will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.
***Any religious book or any book that teaches you to worship idols and statues, dump or destroy it.
***Any religion that teaches you to worship any sculptures, idols, false gods, gold, silver, metal, wood, animals, plants, stars, planets, religion leaders or their magnificent buildings (some people worship great buildings) . Get out of that religion.
“But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die. None of the offenses they have committed will be remembered against them. Because of the righteous things they have done, they will live.".............. Ezekiel 18:21-23

"But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you." ........John 16:13-14 Words of Lord Jesus Christ
