my help cometh from God

lighthouse1 (10)

Shall I look to the unknown visible Hills for salvation? No! I will look to farther Hills, to God himself for salvation, from where comes my help.
 
(Jer 31:4 KJV)  Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.
 
(Psa 40:17 KJV)  But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
 
(Psa 63:7 KJV)  Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
 
(Psa 70:5 KJV)  But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
 
(Psa 71:12 KJV)  O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
 
(Psa 94:17 KJV)  Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
 
(Psa 121:1 KJV)  I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  2   My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
 
False distractions, false detours, perversions, useless  and futile alternatives  next now are a too common fact of life, but we need to be personally rooted, grounded in a direct fellowship with God, his Word daily  and in his Love , in Jesus, instead.

(John 8:44 KJV)  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

(Rom 1:25 KJV)  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

(2 Th 2:11 KJV)  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

(Rev 21:27 KJV)  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

(Rev 22:15 KJV)  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

One of the strongest delusions is secular or false religious Music itself and now who can deny how many people do now daily listen to it.. based on Lucifer: the harp-playing prostitute who had been in Eden (Ezek 23:16).

As we all can know readily many persons  who  have lost, or lose their anchor of a godly faith they do next fall back into their old addictions, their past life of false self, man worship, the end-time Babylon-Harlot worship, including now music, entertainment,  and Peyote or other drugs. The MUSIC is one of the most addictive producers of a DRUG HIGH the world has ever know. Who spends more, music addicts or morphine addicts. Music inspires a false COMMERCE of Harlots to Seduce   all people away from the Living WORD Who is  present with them as the LOGOS. Only a tiny REMNANT of god’s people will be able to close their ears as they pass the harlots  trying to shipwreck our faith on the rocks of Rock and Roll–pr an obscene expression of “religious” music built on the spiritual void clearly using the Black component derived from Voodoo, perverse snake charmers and all

(2 Pet 2:1 KJV)  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2  And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3  And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 4  For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5  And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;  6  And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 7  And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8  (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 9  The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 10  But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. 11  Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. 12  But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13  And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; 14  Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 15  Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16  But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet. 17  These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 18  For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19  While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20  For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21  For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22  But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

(Isa 5:11 KJV)  Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! 12  And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands. 13  Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. 14  Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. 15  And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: 16  But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

 

As all of us must have some time occupying activity, occupation next God has   promised to send strong delusions and strong deluders even  a MUSICAL ENCHANTER, the “sorcerers” of the book of Revelation,  resurrecting Zoe   the female goddess, where Eve is worshiped as superior because Satan or Lucifer supposedly taught her all of the knowledge of good and evil,  to those who have already decided that they aren’t interested God and in the Word of God. A vast collection of ranging from punk rock to disco, alternative music to mainstream pop, new wave to industrial techno music, some of which spoke of and glorified violence, sex, drunkenness, drugs, etc. Satanic influences of music in our pop-culture today, today’s ungodly music, worms it’s way into our homes, our cars, and ultimately perversely  influencing our hearts and minds. The outcome of our spiritual, physical behavior is contingent upon the type of music we choose to sing, listen to. There still is available to us all godly and praiseworthy music worth mentioning that exists within our society, music from valid artists whose real  purpose is to honor and glorify God, and it is always your choice as to what you will, want to listen to as well.

“Lucifer is a fallen angel who was the head of the ministry of music in Heaven when he was in heaven. It has been said of him he was the most beautiful of ALL angels and he was the director of the flow of music there (Praise and Worship).

Of course, now he no longer is….. but there are several scriptural references throughout the bible the denote his previous authority over music when he was in heaven. One is Isa.14:11 – “Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.”

This verse right here is speaking of his fall from heaven, and how all of the glory he had, and the gifts he had fell with him. The noise of thy viols indicates the stringed instruments he had charge over. But yes, actually throughout the bible in passages in the books of Ezekiel, Job, Isaiah, even Psalms upon speaking of his past life…it tells us he was the minister of music there. Of course he no longer is now though.

Lucifer means morning star.

Job 38:7When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy

Lucifer was basically a walking talking musical instrument.

Ezekiel 28:13 – Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: THE WORKMANSHIP OF THY TIMBRELS AND OF THY PIPES WAS PREPARED IN THE DAY THAT THOU WAST CREATED.

14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering CHERUB, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17  Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

18  Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

19  All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

These were the same words that were spoken of lucifer in

Isaiah 14:11-14
(11 All your pomp has been brought down to the grave, along with the NOISE OF YOUR HARPS; maggots are spread out beneath you and worms cover you.)-(New International Version)

King James Version
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee”

Purely from a theological view, if in fact Satan has a connection with and a direct influence on music, which has become undoubtedly clear that he does. We must remember that most music,  not all music, can come from evil sources no matter how lovely, beautiful or pleasing it may sound to the ears. For we know that the devil  masquerades as an angel of light (II Corinthians 11:14).

(1 Cor 14:7 KJV)  And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?

Do you prefer godly, God’s music, scripture in songs,  or the devil’s music still?

 “Just as Satan has an influence on music, so God has His influence on the music as well, and even more so. Not all music, secular or not, is inherently evil.  It has been a historically proven fact that Jesus Christ still has been the subject of more songs, music, stories, poetry, prose, screenplays, literature, art, etc. than any other subject in the history of mankind. Christ has been the influencing source behind such famous and talented musical artists as: Handel, Bach, Pachelbel, John and Charles Wesley, Michael W. Smith, Rich Mullins, and many others, not to mention the many talented worship teams that exist within the Body of Christ. As with anything in life, it is up to our own discretion and spiritual discernment to decide what is and is not appropriate for our listening pleasure. It is also up to us as parents to set standards and to monitor what our kids are listening to. What goes in the body is what comes out through the way in which we live our lives. He went on: “What comes out of a man is what makes him `unclean.’ For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery. – (Mark 7:20-21) So ask yourself, “Do I know what kind of music I’m listening to?”  Better yet, “Do I know what kind of music my kids are listening to?””  http://www.turnbacktogod.com/lucifer-angel-of-music/

Worshipping falsely man, Lucifer – Satan, one next has a price to pay for it next still too.

(Isa 24:1 KJV)  Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. 2  And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. 3  The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word. 4  The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. 5  The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 6  Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. 7  The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh. 8  The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. 9  They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it. 10  The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in. 11  There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. 12  In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. 13  When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. 14  They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.  15  Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.

(Rev 2:5 KJV)  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

(Rev 14:8 KJV)  And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

(Rev 18:2 KJV)  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Do you prefer godly, God’s music, scripture in songs,  or the devil’s  music still? 
  
I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1b

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:3

REJOICE in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise  is comely for the upright. Psalm 33:1

Praise  the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Psalm 33:2

The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. Psalm 34:15

The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18

Thus  we can praise God at any time and exalt Him in righteousness and a contrite spirit:

THERE ARE ALWAYS TWO FORCES IN THE WORLD.

CHOICE
 
THERE ARE ALWAYS TWO FORCES IN THE WORLD. GOOD AND EVIL, VICTORY OR DEFEAT, even including now the Genuine worship of God  and false worship of self, man, the devil rather.
 
 (Num 10:7 KJV)  But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm. 8  And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations.  9  )  And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies. 10   Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1b 

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:3

REJOICE in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise  is comely for the upright. Psalm 33:1

Praise  the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Psalm 33:2

The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. Psalm 34:15

The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18

Thus  we can praise God at any time and exalt Him in righteousness and a contrite spirit: never seen in the false, humanistic musical worship, rituals!  

Valid latter rain doctrines

1 The practice of laying on of hands to be filled with the Holy Spirit (with the evidence of speaking in other tongues).

2 “The practice of laying on of hands to impart spiritual gifts other than tongues.

3 “The concept of the restoration of the Tabernacle of David. (This includes the restoration of Jubilee along with a Feast of Tabernacles -like religious festival.)

“Praise & Worship emphasized as a means

(1) to Usher in God’s presence and
(2) to
usher God’s people into His presence.

“Singing in the spirit congregationally, i.e. in other tongues

Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord. Eze 33:30  
My people come to you, as they usually do,
and sit before you to listen to your words,
but they do not put them into practice.
With their mouths they express devotion ,
but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. Eze 33:31
 
Indeed, to them you are nothing more than
one who sings love songs
with a beautiful voice and plays (make melody on) an instrument well,
for they hear your words
but do not put them into practice. Eze 33:32 

When all this comes true–and it surely will–then they will know that a prophet has been among them.” Eze 33:33

 

Now about the false singers too 

Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. Am.5:23

Butthis thing commanded I them, saying,  Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people:  and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. Jeremiah 7:23   But they HEARKENED NOT, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. Jeremiah 7:24

The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Jeremiah 7:18  Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? Jeremiah 7:19 

Next Lucifer HIMSELF came equipped with pipes and tambourines and was the prostitute harpist merging false religion and commerce. The Latin word “Lucifer” was applied to Satan in the garden because of his relationship to the stones of fire and light and his musical seduction. The word “praise” which means to make a fool of yourself is the Hebrew:

Halal (1984) haw-lal’; a prim. root; to be clear (orig. of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence to make a show, to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causat. to celebrate; also to stultify, make, fool (-ish, -ly), glory, give [light], be (make, feign self) mad (against), give in marriage, [sing, be worthy of] praise, rage, renowned, shine.

Lucifer is derived from halal and therefore defines the then and end-time methods he will use against the Word of God.

Heylel (h1966) hay-lale’; from 1984 (in the sense of brightness); the morning-star: – Lucifer.

Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. 1 Corinthians 10:7

And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink,and rose up to play. Exo 32:6   

False music  distinctly marked in the festivities which attended the erection of the golden calf.. “Today, this music and dance festival is understood as the one remnant of the old Canaanitefertility rituals, which, in the monotheistic pseudomorphosis of the temple ceremonies, was to ensure an abundant crop of plants, animals, and even human beings.” (Interpreters Dictionary of the Bible, p. 463)

 The past pagan music in a religious sense was performed by prostitutes or homosexuals and was generally related also to fertility cults. It thus also involved mass nudism, fornication, sodomy and mad knife-slashingrites, including the burning of children — were all common features of this so-called worship.”  

All the sinners among my people will die by the sword, the ones who say, ‘Disaster will not come near, it will not confront us.’ Amos 9:10 

That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph. Amos 6:6

Today  still too often “With the wine-drinking (which is the literal meaning of the Hebrew for feasting), goes also  the sensual, erotic music and dancing.” Also a  common theme of all paganism was that the female musicians who had the power to seduce the males with the hope of leaving a large “contribution.” and because they produced nothing good and caused lots of destruction of morals they were called  hypocrites and parasites.

God desires still people who worship him in spirit and in truth

 For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself:  Ephraim hath hired lovers. Hos 8: 9 Look, the sovereign Lord is watching the sinful nation, and I will destroy it from the face of the earth. But I will not completely destroy the family of Jacob,” says the Lord. Amos 9:8

I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord. Amos 4:11

I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto measSodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah. Je.23:14

Therefore as I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them. Zep.2:9

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Re.11:8

For thus saith the Lord God; The city that went out by a thousand shall leave an hundred, and that which went forth by an hundred shall leave ten, to the house of Israel. Amos 5:3

For thus saith the Lord unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live: Amos 5:4

But seek not Beth-el, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beer-sheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Beth-el shall come to nought. Amos 5:5

Seek the Lord, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Beth-el. Amos 5:6

 

Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment? Mal 2:17

BEHOLD, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to histemple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.

Mal 3:1 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiners fire, and like fullers soap: Mal 3:2 

As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. Amos 5:19

Yea, though they have hired (harlots) among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes. Hos 8: 10  Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin,   altars shall be unto him to sin . Hos 8: 11

I have written to him the great things of my law,   but they were counted as a strange thing. Hos 8: 12

They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it;   but the Lord accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity,   and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt. Hos 8: 13

For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples;  and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities:  but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof. Hos 8: 14

The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up. Amos 5:2

 The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. Psalm 33:10

(Isa 66:3 KJV) He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

(Ezek 6:13 KJV) Then shall ye know that I am the LORD, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.

(Psa 35:13 KJV) But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

It seems that many people, professing Christians included now, tend to personally only seek God only when they have serious needs, problems or they do want something really bad and next when the problem is solved, or they got what they wanted, they next often tend to, do seem to forget about God again? But even all Christians now still do have major problems in life.. for there is a real devil who troubles us personally all of our life and we we are to resist him in the faith.. True happiness cannot be in reality achieved without having a continual, personal relationship with God here on earth and us continually knowing and following solely his will of our life too, instead of Idols.    Why is God jealous of idols before us? well it means he is envious for our own good.. he strives for all things to be our good… What idols? what ever replaces God is an idol.. what ever you falsely worship as substitute for God. And it can be drugs, booze, sex, or your wife, son , daughter, a persons, car,  self, even your church, your pastor, your denomination, your own doctrines, beliefs, your culture, your nationality … for we all had or  have a god shaped vacuum in our life.. but  filling it with extremes or  false substitutes, junk will never be acceptable to God. Never. If you still do have a God shaped vacuum that is unfilled, then no other things, no relationships or careers, goals, next will satisfy you, not even any personal, social, community relationships, acts.  Hey I also have learned long time ago that merely telling the truth to some people will not work, they have their false idols, false lies they still want to handle, and they will take the Ostrich approach to the truth, but hopefully the truth will next still help some people. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/you-can-have-no-idols-before-god-ever/
(Psa 118:9 KJV) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
.
(Psa 146:3 KJV) Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
The LORD rightfully is my shepherd.. not man… (Lev 19:4 KJV) Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.(Lev 26:1 KJV) 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 the LORD your God.

And No idols includes one’s pastor, one’s denomination, religious club… Man’s best is too often just more hatred, murder, abuse…. 70 percent of today’s pastors are also crooked cause they are ungodly, unsaved hirelings, wolves in sheep clothing, not called by God pastors trying to make money, a career of the ministry.. this is unacceptable… that is why they too readily do lie, counsel divorce, slander, abuse others.
