(2 Chronicles 7:14), “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
God is calling His People the “BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS”. But how can God hear our prayers when we ourselves are idolaters? Sad to say but most of the Evangelical Ministers especially big timers and popular ones are greedy. Greediness is a form of “IDOLATRY”! (Like pastors, like members) How can God hear your prayers? (Ephesians 5:5)
The Philippines is known to be the only Christian country in Asia but no one can deny that idolatry is rampant in this country. If one can be converted to Christianity, the large letters in the first to fifth commandments cannot escape your eyes. (Exodus 20:1—5), And God spoke all these words: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, Am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those WHO HATE ME.”
Anyone who worships any other gods, actually, hates the true God of the Bible. But millions of professing Christians still worship idols because the god of this world has blinded their minds. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
Look at these photos: This is not a joke and this is not funny.
People in our country proclaimed that the Philippines is the only Christian nation in Asia. But look! Idolatry is rampant among the people. Every year in their festivity, that huge idol of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo Manila, in their annual procession in the City, people are rampaging to worship that ugly idol.
In Cebu City, people celebrate the Sinulog every January where people dance erratically before the Santo Neno idol parading in colorful costumes and becoming an attraction to tourists.
In Bicol Naga City, people celebrate their Pena Francia in wild passion where the idol of their Queen of Heaven, the lavishly decorated statue of Mary, is wildly worshiped. In every city, town and barrio, fiestas are celebrated to the extent that every single cent is spent just to worship their idol gods. All these celebrations are pagan practices and are a violation of God’s Commandments. They are all lies from Satan.
“READ ALL THE CONTEXTS I QUOTED HERE IN YOUR BIBLE. THESE ARE NOT MY WORD. THESE ARE GOD’S WORD.”
Anyone who worship or make sacrifices to an idol is actually worshiping or sacrificing to demons. Behind those idols or images are demons.
(1 Corinthians 10:19-20), “Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons.”
(Psalms 115: 4-8), “But their idols are silver and gold, made by the hands of men. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but they cannot see; they have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell; they have hands, but cannot feel, feet but cannot walk; nor can they utter a sound with their throats. Those who make them will be like them and so will all who trust in them.”
(Jeremiah 10:1-5; 14-15): “Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel. Thus says the Lord, “Do not learn the way of the nations, And do not be terrified by the signs of the heavens Although the nations are terrified by them; For the customs of the peoples are delusion; Because it is wood cut from the forest, The work of the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool. They decorate it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers so that it will not totter. Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field are they, and they cannot speak; they must be carried, because they cannot walk! Do not fear them, for they can do no harm, nor can they do any good.” “Every man is stupid, devoid of knowledge; every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols; for his molten images are deceitful, and there is no breath in them. They are worthless, a work of mockery; in the time of their punishment they will perish.”
(Deuteronomy 7:25), “The graven images of their gods you are to burn with fire; you shall not covet the silver or the gold that is on them, nor take it for yourselves, lest you be snared by it, for it is an abomination to the Lord your God.”
(1 Corinthians 6:9-10), “No idolater can inherit the kingdom of God.”
If Muhammad and his army had spared idolater Catholics from destruction, then God is a liar. If the Black Death in Europe that ravaged the idolater Catholics did not occur then God’s warning would be a lie. But God never lies. Christians should learn a lesson from the past. Idolatry is a grievous sin before God!
Were the commandments of God and its warning was just written for nothing? Let us leave the pagans or the heathens and the atheists in this world alone. It is none of our business if they worship idols or false gods or even if they worship themselves like the Atheist and the Humanist. The Bible in Ephesians 2: 11-12 says that they are without hope and without God in this world. But for anyone who becomes a Christian, the first commandment written in big letters, cannot escape their eyes and their mind. If you disobey these commandments you actually hate God.
When were the then natives of the Philippines converted to Catholicism? It took time. But at this time, no one can deny that it’s now the third generation. I wish all this calamities that ravages our country is not the time yet; and if only all God’s people will wake up and acknowledge for their sins, repent and pray, this coming total destruction will be prevented. (2 Chronicles 7:14), “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
God is calling His People the “Born Again Christians” but almost all the ministers are also greedy and that is “IDOLATRY!!!” How can God hear their prayers?! I said, “Almost all” because I know that only few are honest and have pure motives in their ministry.
