TEXT: ISAIAH 46:1-10 (Please refer to your KJV Bible for scripture reference)
KEY VERSE: ISAIAH 44:6
Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I Am the first, and I Am the last; and beside Me there is no God.
Satan brings many people under bondage by creating fear in their hearts. One of the things that cause this fear are idols and shrines. They are feared, they are worshipped and they are sacrificed too. People do all these things in ignorance, believing that these idols or shrines have some power to protect, prosper and lengthen their lives. But God is saying fear not the idols, for they are harmless. They are nothing compared to your Great God. Their incantations and spells cannot work on you. You are shielded by the power of God.
1 Corinthians 10:20
But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
What operates in these idols and shrines are demons and unclean spirits that hate men with passion and are all out for their souls. There is nothing good in them. If you put an empty pot on the tree, after some time, bees will make it their habitation. It is the same way demons inhabit idols created by men. They are helpless. They are dead and have no life in them.
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. They that make them are like unto them; so every one that trusteth in them.
We know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but One. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth...But to us, there is but one God; the Father, of whom are all things and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus, by whom are all things and we by Him. Jesus came to set the captives free. Jesus has triumphed over Satan.
And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Do not fear idols, they are harmless, useless and meaningless.
SONG FOR THE DAY: I will praise Him from everlasting, everlasting to everlasting...
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Leviticus 4-6; Matthew 25:1-30
