National Idolatry, 9/14/14

Scripture very clearly teaches us, in Exodus 20:4-6, that worshiping graven(carved) images is a form of idolatry and is sin against God.  In our culture in America we do not bow down physically to our great graven images but we absolutely do in our hearts.  There are some of the biggest graven images in the world in America despite our Judeo-Christian heritage.  If these images were merely considered art and were used to inspire praise to God that would be one thing, but they are not.  These images are used to call glory our naiton and to its political heroes at the exclusion of God.  The godly part of culture's heritage stems primarily from the early pilgrim fathers and not so much from the founding father of our government, most of whom were occultists and incorporated this kind of idolatrous activity into our national culture from which we badly need to repent and Cry Out To God For America and for the New American Government.

The Washington Monument looms at the end of The Mall in Washington, D.C..  This architectural design is called an OBELISK, it is an ancient occult(Satanic religion) symbol:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For other uses, see Obelisk (disambiguation).
One of the two Luxor obelisks in the Place de la Concorde in Paris; a red granite monolithic column, 23 metres (75 ft) high, including the base, which weighs over 250 metric tons (280 short tons).

An obelisk (UK: /ˈɒbəlɪsk/; US: /ˈɑːbəlɪsk/, from Greek: ὀβελίσκος obeliskos,[1] diminutive of ὀβελός obelos, "spit, nail, pointed pillar"[2]) is a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape at the top. These were originally called "tekhenu" by the builders, the Ancient Egyptians. The Greeks who saw them used the Greek 'obeliskos' to describe them, and this word passed into Latin and then English.[3] Ancient obelisks were often monolithic, whereas most modern obelisks are made of several stones and can have interior spaces.

We all need to know that ancient Egypt and Greece were occult cultures who worshiped Satan and his fallen angels as gods.  God would not have permanently brought down their empires if they were holy. The Obelisk is profoundly unholy, it is a phallic symbol: meaning that it represents male anatomy.  You will see these objects in almost every graveyard in America becasuse Freemasons and other 'illuminated'(Luciferian) fraternity members love them.

We have these things in America because many of our founding fathers were worshipers of Lucifer/Satan.  One of the things Lucifer calls himself is The Grand Architect of the Universe.  That is part of why occultists are so interested in these kinds of structures.  As Americans need to ask ourselves: if our national heritage is as christian as so many claim, then why are our symbols all from the occult?  We as Americans need to repent of this part of our national heritage and embrace the One True God alone.

The Lincoln Memorial.  The inscription above the statue of Lincoln at his memorial reads:

“In this TEMPLE, as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is ENSHRINED forever.”

Temples and shrines are places of WORSHIP. This is as obvious a proof of idolatry as you could want. We worship ourselves as a nation and we worship graven images of our national fathers. We need to repent of this nationally approved idolatry.

Lincoln was quite a godly man, perhaps the godliest of all our Presidents.  But even he dabbled in the occult, by default, by allowing his wife Mary Todd Lincoln to conduct seances (Gary Beaton: min. 20:05-23:25) in the White House.

Mount Rushmore, as big a graven image to a created thing as any in the world.  Almost a whole mountainside turned into a sculpture.  I personally know of none greater than this.  Is this the act of a truly christian nation: to create for itself massive graven images of its national heroes at the cost of worshiping God alone.  No, it surely is not, it is the sin of idolatry, with as big a proof as you could imagine.  We need to repent from this.

The Statue of Liberty, a.k.a. 'Lady Liberty."  This colossal graven image is of a pagan goddess, known by many names in different cultures, such as Libertas to the Romans, hece the name Liberty."  The biblical name for this this fallen angel would be Jezebel or Ashoreth or Queen of Heaven or some such other abominable thing.  Is the freedom of christian nation really best symbolized by a cursed, idolatrous graven image of a fallen angel? We need to repent from this.

The Great Seal of the United States of America.  This bird is not the bald eagle it is the Phoenix, an ancient occult symbol from Egypt.  It has been given the white head feathers of the bald eagle but the shape of the body of the bird is a classic ancient depiction of the Phoenix.  The 13 -step pyramid is a major symbol of Freemasonry(Luciferianism) and the eye is the 'all-seeing' Eye of Horus,  another ancient Egyptian occult symbol.  Novus Ordo Seclorum means New World Order(Anti-Christ government) in Latin.  Dr. Tom Horn, former pastor, author/lecturer/researcher expounds beautifully on the occult symbology of the United States government in his lecture, The Lost Symbol.  We need to repent from this.
