99% of Israelites Have Idols in their Home and Don’t Know it

It’s very shocking to think most people who claim to worship Yahweh, actually have idols in their home. What is an idol?

Hebrew Words which mean Idol

Pe-sel

Translated as… graven image, craved image or idol

See Deut. 4:16, 23, 25; Judges 17:3-4; Judges 18:31; 2 Kings 21:7; 2nd Chron. 2:33; Isaiah 40:20; Nahum 1:14

Deuteronomy 4

4:9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;

4:10 Specially the day that thou stoodest before YHWHthy Elohim in Horeb, when YHWH said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

4:11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.

WHEN YAH SPOKE TO HIS PEOPLE, THEY SAW NOTHING, BUT ONLY HEARD HIS VOICE

4:12 And YHWH spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.

4:13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

4:14 And YHWH commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

4:15 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that YHWH spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:

WARNING NOT TO

4:16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

4:17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,

4:18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:

4:19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which YHWH thy Elohim hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

4:20 But YHWH hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day.

4:21 Furthermore YHWH was angry with me for your sakes, and sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto that good land, which YHWHthy Elohim giveth thee for an inheritance:

4:22 But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but ye shall go over, and possess that good land.

4:23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of YHWH your Elohim, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which YHWH thy Elohim hath forbidden thee.

4:24 For YHWH thy Elohim is a consuming fire, even a jealous El.

4:25 When thou shalt beget children, and children’s children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight ofYHWH thy Elohim, to provoke him to anger:

4:26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.

4:27 And YHWH shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither YHWH shall lead you.

4:28 And there ye shall serve elohim, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.

4:29 But if from thence thou shalt seek YHWH thy Elohim, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

4:30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn toYHWH thy Elohim, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;

4:31 (For YHWH thy Elohim is a merciful El;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

4:32 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that Elohim created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?

4:33 Did ever people hear the voice of Elohim speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?

4:34 Or hath Elohim assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that YHWH your Elohim did for you in Egypt before your eyes?

4:35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that YHWH he is Elohim; there is none else beside him.

4:36 Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.

YHWH GAVE THE ISRAELITES 3 INSTRUCTIONS IN LEV. 26:1.  #1)Don’t make any graven image or craved image, #2) Don’t make any stone statues and #3 – don’t stand afore said images in your land

Leviticus 26:1

Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am YHWH your Elohim.

Habbakuk 2:18

What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols?

19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.

2:20 But YHWH is in his set-apart temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.
