A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Is it not foolish and even demonic to believe that baptizing an idol with the name of God makes it acceptable to worship?

What makes an idol, idol? All molded objects, all images, all created beings, all imaginary items that usurp the authority, the glory, holiness, and place of God in the mind and heart of a person.

Do you water down the word of God in order to please men or defend the falsehood of your religion?

DAY # 169

TODAY’S REQUEST:

NOT TO YOKE OURSELVES TOGETHER WITH UNBELIEVERS:

FOR WHAT AGREEMENT HAS THE TEMPLE OF GOD WITH IDOLS?

2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people."
Leviticus 19:4 ‘Do not turn to idols, nor make for yourselves molded gods: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 26:1 ‘You shall not make idols for yourselves; neither a carved image nor a sacred pillar shall you rear up for yourselves; nor shall you set up an engraved stone in your land, to bow down to it; for I am the LORD your God.
1 Corinthians 12:2 You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led.
1 Thessalonians 1:9 For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God,
Psalms 96:5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the LORD made the heavens.

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

WE ARE STANDING ON HOLY GROUND

1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. 18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness"; 20 and again, "The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile."
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Psalms 31:6 I have hated those who regard useless idols; But I trust in the LORD.
