Dancing to the music, or facing it…will you bow?
“Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, [That] at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” (Daniel 3:4-6).
We already know what time it is and it is time out for these excuses to continue on in idol worship. Let’s face the music shall we. America is full of idols, everywhere we look is a statue of some sort going up in memorial of something or someone. Here in Texas, the famous State Fair idol ‘Big Tex’ burned to the ground because of some electrical short. However, instead of allowing by-gones to stay gone…they built another one; a new and improved one. In downtown Fort Worth, a larger than life statue is placed in memorial of John F. Kennedy for no other reason than ‘he stopped by’ on the way to Dallas to be killed. These are just a few examples of an idolized city; so, let us imagine the nation as a whole in this.
But what does the word say…” Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven 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.” (Exodus 20:3-4).
Now one could argue that the images mentioned are not worship; however, the word says “make anything” hence we have erred in this and most probably because the commandments have been tossed out.
See this clearly:
1) Graven image
2) Or any likeness
3) In heaven above
4) Or in the earth beneath
5) Or in the water under the earth
So I ask, what in the world are have we done? Do we know? Someone is just doing their own thing at the expense of everyone else.
Look at this:
“Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height [was] threescore cubits, [and] the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.” (Daniel 3:1-2).
Everyone who is anyone was invited to the unveiling of the golden image, much like, the unveiling of the images aforementioned. Also, we see the unveiling and ribbon cuttings for other entities; like, our new mercantile, our new church which seats almost the entire city, our new homes. Is anyone getting this vision.
Is there one to say enough is enough?
For more on the saga of idol worship in your town see, Daniel 3 .
There is nothing new under the sun…unless you change it.
