[Revival Chapel Shield] [Realm Herald Shield]

The Idoloclastic Call:

Modern Crusades of Monotheism...

PURGING IDOALTRY AND PAGANISM Among Jews, Christians, and Muslims!

All 3 of the Main Middle Eastern Faiths (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), hold to a belief in the ONE TRUE GOD. And, though each may dispute with the others as to HIS exact Nature or composition, behavior, etc. they all hold that there is but ONE God (monotheism).

Historicallly, we believe this to be so, because each is a Descendant of Abraham, whose Faith in the ONE TRUE GOD well documented in the Holy Scriptures. And, in developing their Culture around Abraham's basic belief, they all have this theology of the ONE TURE GOD (or Monotheism) as the core of their Religion.

In contrast, the Pagan Peoples of the wicked world tend to hold to polytheism--that there are many gods and spirits to be worshipped and served. Consequently, they tend to hold and worship all kinds of idols and images, that represent these deities. And, many magical signs and symbols are used to summon the presence and power of these spirit beings. Such is the Religion of Primative Peoples.

[Word of God (Scroll) Shield] However, in the eyes of the Hebrew Peoples (Jews, Christians, and Muslims), such Pagan beliefs are spiritual adultery: a perversion so bad that it should be avoided at all cost! And, we can see their reasoning from history! The defection of the majority of Mankind to Paganism is recorded in the Holy Scriptures (Genesis 6:5-6), resulting in their destruction of the Great Flood. Later, Jacob's purge of his own Family's idolatry, which had brought about the gang rape of his daughter Dinah, was done in desparation to deliver them all (Genesis 35:2-5). Then, the Children of Israel were ensnared by Egyptian Idolatry and subjected to cruel bondage (Exodus 1:8-11), needing Moses to deliver them. And, when Israel fell to Idolatry, Josiah made a desparate purge, to save the People from being carried away captive (II Kings 23:4-6). But, the tide of Idolatry continued to rise, so God delivered them over to conquest, and to slavery, where they went away to Babylon. Thus, because of these bitter lessons, the Hebrew Peoples usually hold a strong Idoloclastic (destroying of idols) attitude.

But, where are we today? The RELIGIOUS ESTABLISHMENT spends its time, telling us that we should vote this president out and vote this congressman in. Or, we shold bomb this (abortion) clinic and then support that (genetic) research. Or, run these (undesirable) members out of the congregtion and but ordain these so called holy gay men (and women). Sorry, but it sure seems to me that most of them are missing the boat! God hardly cares about these minor issues! What HE wants are the MAJOR things taken care of first!

So, is the Idoloclastic Movement Major?

Well, as we have just seen, down through history, it has been a Major component of the core of the Hebrew Peoples. So, shouldn't this be a strong value among the modern churches? Or, are they no longer Hebrew Peoples? (And thus, cast offs from the Faith.)

Moreover, this Idolacastic Purge is so near and dear to GOD's heart, that HE wrote it as the Second Commandment, right after the first Commandment to Love HIM or the Sh'MaH. For the Holy Scriptures clearly state:

THOU [you] SHALL HAVE NOT OTHER GODS BEFORE ME! Thou shall NOt make thee [you] any graven [fashioned or molten] image, nor any likeness [sign or symbol] of anything that is in the heavens above, nor in the earth beneath, nor [even] that is in the waters beneath the earth; Thou shall NOT bow down thyself [yourself] unto to them, nor serve them, for I, the Lord thy God, am a jealous God: visiting the iniquities of of the fathers upon the children, [even] to the thrid and fourth generation of them that hate ME! (Deuteronomy 5:7-9)

Which, also, happens to be right next to the Sh'MaH or the Commandment to Love God (Deuteronomy 6:4-7)! So, these are, indeed, Majors of the Holy Scriptures.

[Holy Scriptures Shield] Moreover, the Apostles also sternly warned the New Believers concerning idolatry. Hah-RahV Shouhul (the Apostle Paul) sternly warns the People to flee idolatry (I Corinthians 10:14-23, Galatians 5:19-21, and Colossians 3:5-6). And, the Apostle John is also very much against Idolatry (I John 5:21 and Revelations 2:14, 20 and 9:20-21). Thus, the early Teachers of the Faith were very much Idoloclastic! And, we should be, too.

So, how come the modern spokesmen for God are ignoring it?

All around us, today, there is a rising tide of Pagan Idolatry! The Devil and his workers are running about our land and setting up FLAGS, idols or immages, that let them CLAIM our Country. And, from these Spiritual Beacons, they broadcast the demonic influences upon Our People, near them! Yet, no one does anything about it. The sheep dogs slumber, while the wolves are setting their snares to entrap the whole flock!

Even worse, some of the modern churches consider themsleves so liberated from being RELIGIOUS, that not only do they ignore giving God's Warning about Idolatry, but they are, in fact, teaching the lessons of magic and witchcraft for doctrines, and passing it off as part of the Judeo-Christian Heritage (and claiming to be a church of God). Such abominal filth ought to be stopped and stamped out! God's People are not to be Idolators!

Do not be deceived! If you do the works of the Devil, then you are the Devil's worker! No matter what anyone calls it.

[WARNING Shield]


Identifying Idoloclastic Targets

Unfortunately, the modern RELIGIONS ESTABLISHMENT is so fallen down on its job of WARNING the Flock about idolatry, that many can not even point out or identify what an Idol or Pagan Practice is! So, how are you to avoid it if you don't know what to look for? Surely, this lack of teaching has blinded the eyes of the People of God!

However, the bitter experience of bondage in Egypt to those Idols caused Moses to set forth a stern WARNING, that because of these paractices, the Canaanites were being expelled from the Holy Land, before the Children of Israel (Deuteronomy 9:3-4). And, that the People of God should NOT take up any of their Idolatrous Practices (Deuteronomy 4:15-28)! So, heed the WARNING.

Moreover, in case anyone should forget what these evil practices were, Moses set forth a list, to point out to the People of God what was gross Idolatry. The list was clearly recorded in the Holy Scriptures. And we would do well to frequently read it and remember what to avoid:

When thou [you] are come into the Land which the Lord thy (your) God gives to thee [you], thou shall not learn to do after the abominations of those [Pagan] Nations! There shall NOT be found among you anyone that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire [child sacrifice], or that uses divination [fortune telling], or an observer of times [astrologer], or an enchanter [spell caster], or a witch [cultic-harlot or prostitute-priestess], Or a charmer [hypnotist], or a consulter with familiar spirits [spiritist or reader of vibs], or a wizard [master of dark arts], or a necromancer [or a communicator with spirits of the dead]. For, all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord; And because of these abominations, the Lord thy God does drive them out from before thee [and give you their land]. (Deuteronomy 18:9-12)

As you read it, the list should be very clear. And, if you study out the other Scriptures related to this one, you will find that the Word of God, over and over again, warns of fleeing from these evil practices.

Furthermore, also included in this ban is sorcery, or the use of magical, hallucinogenic, or illegal drugs (Isaiah 47:9-14, Jeremiah 27:9-10, Malachi 3:5, Acts 8:9-11, and Revelations 9:21 and 18:23). For, these wicked potions often open the spiritual doorways to demonic oppression (if not full possession). So, it needs to be strongly avoided, too!

Now, why aren't the spokesmen for God warning you about these things? (Because they like the Drug Lords putting money in the Congregation plate!)

[Scandia Faith (Cross) Shield]


While the RELIGIOUS ESTABLISHMENT is ignoring the raising of Idolatrous FLAGS all around them, many of them have joined together to suppress what they view as the real works of the Devil: the Pentecostal or Charasticmatic (or Full Gospel) Movement(s). For, it is commonly claimed that those who exercize any of the so called GIFTS, do so under the inspiration of the Devil? What rubbish! ENGIFTMENT is clearly documented in the Holy Scriptures (I Corinthians 12:1-25). And we are admonitished to not despise nor limit the prophetic utterances that God's Holy Ghost may inspire (I Corinthians 14:39 and I Thessalonians 5:19-20). Moreover, we are told that the Full Gospel is for all Time, all generations, and all Peoples (Acts 2:38-39).

Thus, to attack the GIFTS as demonic or idolatrous is way off base! In fact, it is approaching to the WARNING Y'Shua or Jesus gave the Religious Establishment of HIS Day, concerning the Blasphemy of the Holy Ghost (Matthew 12:24-32). So, be very careful! And do NOT speak out against the Working of God's Holy Ghost. Neither attempt to call it idolatry!

In this same light, God has many signs and symbols that HE keeps to HIMSELF and which help to invoke the Presence of HIS Holy Ghost. Many of these are commonly known: such as the Cross, the Star of David (MoGeN DahBeyD), The Menorah (7-sticked candlelabra), Cherubim (Angels), the Dove, etc. So, these should not be identified as idolatrous nor condemened as a Pagan Practice. However, some modern spokesmen for God go so far as to claim that the Cross should be removed and not displayed! (And, other Godly symbols are also under attack.) What kind of craziness is this? And, this at a time when Pagan FLAGS or Idols are being ignored and allowed to be planted and grow! (Whose side are these guys really on, any way?)

In the same vein, there are many signs and symbols used by the Devil all down through history. These should, indeed, be avoided and destoyed, if possible. For example, the up-side-down cross, inverted 5-pointed stars (with its horns in the air), the goat-god, the Swastika, etc. All these should be stamped out! But, some of these so called spokesmen for God not only allow them, but often decorated themselves, their clothing, and their buildings with such tokens of idols! (And, this at a time when they are claiming to be getting rid of the Cross and other Godly symbols because they are idolatry!) Do not be deceived! The guys in the black hats, who display the FLAGS and symbols of the Devil are, indeed, the Devil's workers!

Even more amazing, a few years back, we attempted to start an Outeach Program to the New Age and those involved in the old Occult. But, these so called spokesmen for God had fits, that we should be attempting to win souls away from the Devil (and to God)! And there has been no end to the condemnation and harassment of these so called men of God upon us, for attempting to do the Lord's work. Sorry, but I think nothing shows more dramatically whose side they are really on, when they stop the winning of souls from the Devil's dominion. For, those who protect the Devil's realm, surely are the Devil's workers! Do no let them deceive you.

[Divine Enlightenment (Book) Shield]


Despite the fact that the modern chruches do not seem to know what to do about Idolatry, the Holy Scriptures are VERY clear. And, if we turn back to God's Word, HE will tell us exactly what HE wants done with such Paganism. Give ear to what HE says in the Scriptures:

And, when the Lord thy [your] God shall deliver them [Pagans] before thee [you], thou shall smite them and utterly destroy them; Thou [you] shall make no covenant [treaty, standing agreement] with them, nor show mercy unto them! Neither shall thou make marriages with them: thy [your] daughter thou shall not give unto his son, nor his daughter shall thou take unto thy son! For, they will turn away thy [your] son from following ME, that they may serve other gods; So will the anger of the Lord be kindled against thee [you], and [HE] destroy thee suddenly. But, thus shall ye [you] deal with them: Ye [you] shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their [sacred] groves, and burn [melt] their graven images with fire! (Deuteronomy 7:2-5).

The program seems pretty clear: 1-destroy their altars or places of worship, 2-break their images and statues, 3-cut or tear down their places of gathering, 4-burn or melt their metallic images (especially if they are of precious metals), and 5-boil cloth items or other things that would not endure passing through the flames. Isn't that clear enough?

Now, the issue becomes: WHAT DO WE DO WITH THAT PRECI0US METAL? Unfortunately, greed can get a hold of us too easily! So, listen carefully as to what should be done with it:

The graven [metallic] images [statues] of their gods, shall ye [you] burn [melt] with fire; Thou [you] shall NOT desire the silver or gold that is in them, nor take it to thee [you], lest it be a snare therein: For it is an abomination to the Lord thy [your] God! Neither shall thou [you] bring an abomination into thine [your] house, lest thou [you] become a cursed thing like it; But, thou [you] shall utterly detest it, and thou shall utterly abhor it: For it is an accursed thing! (Deuteronomy 7:25-26)

And, indeed, many of God's People have been seduced by the wealth or artistic value of some images and idols. And, in so doing, they have become accursed, themselves. So, don't take it!

Then, what shall be done with it? Well, King David seems to have come up with a way that is pleasing to God. And God blessed him with many successes in battle, because the Lord knew exactly what David would do with the idols that he captured. He purged it or melted it in the fire, as was required (Numbers 31:21-23 and I Chronicles 14:12) and then dedicated it to God and set it in the Temple Tressury, to be used of God in Works against Idolatry (II Samuel 8:10-11 and I Kings 15:15). And, for his Faithfullness against Idolatry, God blessed him greatly, with military successes!

[Historical Literature Shield] Now, while you may think that this is just a historical anomoly or quirk, it was used by others, with the same dramatic success. The Spansish Conquistadors, Cortez and Pizarro, used this Program in their conquests of the Aztecs (Mexico) and the Incas (Peru), repectively. And God honored their efforts against Idolatry and blessed them with astounding, miraculous success! In addition, the early success of the Muslims, seems to be related to this as the Arabs purged their conquered lands of the venerated images that the corrupt church had allowed its followers to worship! So, heed the lessons of history!

Moreover, this Program of melting idols and giving the precious metals (and jewels) of them into God's Treasury, is what pleases God! (Not, allowing the idol to stand or just ignore it!) For, this is what Joshua set forth, in God's Word:

And ye [you] shall in any wise keep yourself from the accursed thing [idols], lest ye make yourself accursed [too], and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it [from God]. But ALL THE SILVER AND GOLD, and vessels [artworks] of brass and iron, are consecrated [dedicated] unto the Lord; They shall come into the Treasury of the Lord! (Joshua 6:18-19)

So, this was the Program that Joshua followed, too. And, his record of successes more than demonstrates the Truth of using it! So, set your mind on following the Lord's Commandments, concerning this! HE will bless you for your Faithfulness.

In addition, King David seems to have come up with another Idoloaclastic Program that God approved of. In the above command, God told them to kill all of the Pagans or Idolaters. So, David would sort the conquered People's out into two lines. One line (the sheep) would be the ones that would repent and recant of their Idolatry (and these he saved alive, for technically they weren't Pagans, but converts). The second line (or goats) were those Pagans who were so committed to their false gods that they would not repent nor recant, but were willing to die for their devotion to their false-gods, so these he had destroyed (II Samuel 8:2 and Matthew 25:31-34, 41). It is a sobering campaign, but one that God seems to honor, for those leaders with the strength and courage to do as God Commanded.

[Viking Ship Shield]


If we can rely on myths and legends, it is reported that RuRRiK or Rurrik, the founder of Viking of Ancient Russia (or RuSKa) began a Idolaclastic Program headed up by what was referred to as the INQu-TsahR or Inquisator. (And this, in turn, appears to have come from a similar practice by his fore-father, Ivar Vidfadmi.) Now, this seems based on the Holy Scriptures which say:

If thou [you] shall hear said that in one of thy [your] cities, which the Lord thy God has given thee (you) to dwell there: Certain men, the Children of Belial [Idolaters], are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying: Let us go and serve other gods, which ye [you] have not known; THEN SHALL THOU INQUIRE, and make search, and ask diligently; And, if it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you; Thou shall surely smite [strike] the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein [even the cattle thereof], with the edge of the sword. And thou shall gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the streets thereof, and shall burn the city, and all the spoils thereof [even every whit], for [a sacrifice to] the Lord thy God; And it shall be an heap forever, it shall not be built again! And there shall not cleave of their cursed things to thine [your] hand; That the Lord may turn from the fierceness of HIS anger, and show thee [you] mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as HE has sworn unto thy [your] fore-fathers. (Deuteronomy 13:12-17)

And, it seems to have been very effective in Purging Ancient Russia of Idolatry and Pagan Practices.

However, as the Mediavel world (developed by the Northmen) spread throughout Europe, the Catholic Church picked up this previous practices and formed an Inquisition of their own. And, while the original Inquisition was aimed solely at Pagans and Idolators, the Catholic Inquistion drifted into persecuting the Jews, and then any dissentor of the Latin Church (who was then branded a heretic)--with the Spqanish Inquistion degenerating into attacking anyone that they did not like! Consequently, it was not as effective in suppressing Idolatry and the influence of Pagan Religious beliefs, as was Rurrik and Ivar's campaigns.

Thus, now, in Our Times, with Our RETURN of the Northern Nations pf Israel, it seems appropriate that we embark on an Inquistion of Our own. To aid and support the inquiry or investigation into reports of Idolatry and Pagan Practices among the various Congregations. So, if you are finding Idolatry or the practice of Pagan religious beliefs in your congregation, we would like to know about it. (Sometimes, even just making it known is enough of a pressure to shame a Congregation to reform!)

So, keep us informed of what Idolatry you find.
