Spiritual Gifts Part 340:

Flee from idolatry!

The Doctrine of Spiritual Gifts

Point 4.
Developing the capacity you need to function effectively in your spiritual gift.

When you have doctrine in your soul that has been tested, you can discern evil trends in Christianity.

Apostate Christianity in the last days of the church age will morph into the worldwide ecumenical religious system of the Tribulation called Babylon the great, the mother of harlots in Rev 17.

Babylon in Scripture is the name for a great system of religious apostasy. It is counterfeit religion that plagued Israel in the Old Testament times and has infected the church in ours.

Idolatry is man’s placing a visible object of worship before his eyes to protect him from God, thus silencing his conscience that he may indulge his lusts. [William Newell ]

As soon as you move away from God, the kingdom of darkness will supply an idol for you; 2TI 3:3-4.

The Bible uses the analogy of spiritual fornication or adultery to represent idolatry; HOS 4:12.

Idolatry is expressly forbidden by the word of God, in the strongest possible terms, and with total clarity; EXO 20:1-6.

God “gives up” idolaters to their idols; PSA 135:18.

You become like what you worship!

As you continue to worship the one true living God, you become more and more like Christ in His humanity; 2CO 3:18.

God will eventually destroy all idols.

The first thing you need to do is to FLEE! 1CO 10:14

The enduring solution to idolatry is humility, repentance, and renewal; 1PE 5:6-11, GAL 5:16.
