This piece spoke to me personally Yesterday.
Do you BOW to IDOLS or do IDOLS BOW to you?
What is an IDOL?
A Person or thing that is Loved and Admired VERY MUCH, above others.
A Statue that is Worshipped as a god.
Who or What is your own IDOL?
Your spouse - husband, wife; Children - son, daughter;
your pastor, money, power, fame, your boss,
shango, ogun, food, drugs, alcohol, sex etc.
Thus saith the ALMIGHTY:
"You SHALL have no 'OTHER' gods 'BEFORE' me"
"The Most High God(The Creator of Everything) does not live in
houses built by mans hands (I.e Even CHURCH Buildings)
~Acts 7:48 - Acts 17:24
"YOU are NOW The TEMPLE of the Spirit of God; GOD Dwells Within YOU"
According to my Brother Tonye Cole;
It is therefore an aberration or anomaly that YOU; The 'ONLY' Creation
of GOD ALMIGHTY Fashioned and Crafted in HIS DIVINE Image and Likeness;
Should Belittle the God in YOU and Subject HIM and Yourself to idols i.e other gods.....
"My people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge (Ignorance)"..God says ~
Ignorance is man's Greatest Destroyer.....
Brings us into bondage
Makes us vulnerable to things we have no business worrying about
Makes us surrender our authority, rights and power to others
Subjects us to abuse and oppression
IF we are Truly;
Created in God's Image and Likeness
The Temple of His Spirit
Reconciled to the Father through Christ Operating with His Authority
and Power Carriers of His Divine Presence
Then Isn't this God, who is For us; With us and In us; Above ALL Things created?
There is no God before Him, nor is there any after Him.
He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
Everything is Subject to Him; His Word; His Name.
It is "ONLY" In His Presence; BEFORE HIM, that ALL Things MUST bow
It is therefore a pity and foolishness of the highest order, to see YOU
whom God has invested so much of Himself in; Bowing down in fear and
trembling to what is beneath your status.
You MUST Understand and Accept who you are.
You are Divine.
You are God's Master Piece on Earth; His Representative and Ambassador.
Step into your Rightful Place and Act who you are.
You are the CAPTAIN of your own ship.
COMMAND your Morning..
BE......BElieve and Live.
