Those who fashion a graven image are all of them futile, and their precious things are of no profit; even their own witnesses fail to see or know, so that they will be put to shame. Isaiah 44:9
Instead of Israel putting their faith and trust in the one true God Yahweh, they put their faith in idols. Even after everything God did for Israel, freeing them from slavery, providing them food and water in the desert, they continued to forget God and pursue other objects
We as Christians are doing the same thing. Todays Prosperity Gospel is complete Idolatry. Nobody is worshipping God in truth and spirit, they are worshiping a golden calf. They want God to be their personal genie to give them money and earthly possessions. They don’t understand the true gospel of Jesus Christ, they don’t really know God of the Bible.
Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15
When you pursue the world you are not pursuing God. The things of this world are all temporary, they will all fade away. Pursue what is eternal, Jesus Christ! Your life is like a vapor in the wind, here today and gone tomorrow, all these possessions and pleasures you are pursing wont last
All these objects and idols have NO Profit, meaning they will bring no value to your eternal inheritance. Pursue the one that has made you Heavenly Rich by his blood in Jesus Name Amen!
