Idolatry: How Satan Works in Today’s Churches

The idolatry of Judah that God severely punished is being practiced today by Catholics, and Protestants have adopted their ways. The following is one example of how Satan operates in the church:

The Devil at Work

A fellow sister-in-Christ posts videos on social media — we’ll call her “Jane” for anonymity’s sake. In one of her videos, Jane correctly referred to the Lady of Fatima as the Catholics’ “queen of heaven Jezebel.” She was reprimanded by several Catholics which caused her to apologize and unlist the video. Here is what one of the “sweet Catholics” who is supposedly “following Jesus” posted in her comment section:

“As a Catholic, I disagree and I’m offended that you would call Mary the Queen of Heaven Jezebel she was given that title by Christ whom you claim to love please don’t speak on things you have no knowledge of I love your channel but I may stop watching it if you are going to demonize my church the truest church in the world I agree there are bad people in my church just like any other church but for you to demonize mother, Mary, the person God chose to usher Christ to the world is unacceptable.”

First off, she began her comment with a lie: Christ NEVER referred to Mary as the queen of heaven.

Notice her statement “Please don’t speak on things you have no knowledge of.” This is the typical kind response from the devil who comes as an angel of light. In other words, this devil woman is saying that their cult leaders of her “truest church in the world” supposedly knows God’s Word better than someone outside their cult who is indwelt with the Holy Spirit.

Next comes the threat of her rejection: “I love your channel but I may stop watching it if you’re going to demonize my” blah blah blah.

Her idolatrous church is INFESTED with demons, yet she accuses a true Christian of “demonizing her church” (they don’t need our help to do that) and “demonizing Mary.” Showing them in scripture that they are worshiping the devil will get us attacked for “demonizing” which is their way of calling true Christians a demon. These attacks are called “our cross” — this is the cross of Truth which we are to bear for the Word which is Jesus Christ (Luke 14:27, Matthew 10:38)… He died for us; we die for Him.

Note how the devil’s backlash comes in the form of their hurt feelings (playing the victim) wrapped up in a sweet, innocent demeanor, followed by threats of their rejection of you — these people are the ones who the devil has a FIRM grip on. They appeal to a Christian’s desire to show kindness to others which usually causes a Christian to back down from Truth.

Those who really lash out are usually just uneducated/dumb and aggravated because they can’t find the path — these people often benefit when replied to with kindness and directed to some Truth. It’s those offended “sweet victims” that speak the devil’s language.

Jane’s polite response to the idolatrous deceiver mirrors the response of most true Christians:

“I apologized to a sister here when I admitted to speaking so flippantly. Please forgive me. I don’t wish to argue so I will simply remove this video from public.”

Stating God’s truths from the bible is not speaking flippantly. We straight-up state them as fact — they are not up for debate and are not arguable. We will either open the eyes of a lost person, or really upset the pagan who does not have the Holy Spirit. We continue to help the one whose eyes are being opened and ignore the pagan’s backlash (we only plant the seed; God waters it according to His will).

My response to the commenter is based on God’s truths which will always sound offensive to those living by the world’s doctrines:

“Queen of heaven” is only mentioned 5 times in the entire bible, all in the book of Jeremiah (Jer. 44:17-25) — that passage is literally called “The IDOLATRY of Judah” in my KJV study bible and says it will “consume them.” Jeremiah 7:18 explains that the queen of heaven is a pagan god that they burned incense to — that is an abomination to God. You need to check your idolatrous religion with God’s inspired word in its original Hebrew and Greek before you get offended by something a sister in Christ correctly stated. It isn’t difficult to search “queen of heaven” in the bible to see if the luciferians leading your worship services are telling you the truth or lying to you. How can you walk into a Catholic cathedral and not have the Holy Spirit tell you to FLEE that place?”

It took me all of 10 seconds to search “queen of heaven” in eSword and 2 minutes to thoroughly read and pray over the passage so I could provide an educated response. Now I have that in my memory bank for recall by the Holy Spirit the next time a lost person following a pagan luceferian bishop wants to bring up Mary worship or the Lady of Fatima.

God needs His children to educate themselves in His Word so the TRUE body of Christ can identify the deceiving tares! That is our only job on this earth… to carry our cross by speaking ALL of God’s truths, not just the warm and fuzzy parts.

Today’s churches look exactly like Mystery Babylon.

God is about Division

Jesus Christ was sent here to DIVIDE the wheat from the tares, but so many Christians are fertilizing the tares! Christians can’t recognize paganism due to their own worldly indoctrination which is caused by a lack of educating themselves in God’s word. We will be held accountable for who and what we choose to believe, and for who and what we choose to ignore.

God clearly says in Jeremiah 44 that He is going to hold the pagan ritual followers accountable for their actions. He didn’t say He’s going to give them slack because they don’t know any better, or because they’ve convinced themselves that His grace is a license to practice paganism. We have God’s word in PRINT so we are without excuse!

God Says Catholics are Pagans

Worshiping the queen of heaven is a big family affair complete with a cookout, desserts and toasts/drinks, just like today’s Christmas and Easter celebrations:

“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. Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?” (Jeremiah 7:18-19).

Their self-caused confusion is going to cause them to go through God’s refining fire:

“Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched” (Jeremiah 7:20). Jesus can quench the fire, but only after our punishment and only if we remain in obedience to God.

Protestants Can’t Snub Catholics

God told His people not to worship the queen of heaven with their cookouts, desserts, and drinking. Celebrating IS the worship! Yet most of today’s church are worshiping Ishtar with the Easter dinner and egg hunts, and the winter solstice with the decorated evergreen tree, offerings/gifts and feasting… and God is straight-up calling them a heathen!

“Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not” (Jeremiah 10:2-4).

God calls these celebrators “foolish and brutish” for going after the ways of vanity and desiring the things made by deceitful godless men:

“But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities. 9Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning men” (Jeremiah 10:8-9).

This World Is Designed To Kill You

If we live according to the world’s ways, we will avoid the rejection of the worldly and may prosper in this world, but we’ll die a spiritual death.

If we deny ourselves in this world (give up the acceptance of worldly people and their pagan customs), we will receive eternal life in Christ Jesus.

We have a choice to make: Do we die in this world or in the lake of fire? God desires that we be refined in this world so that we escape the second death.

In Jeremiah, as long as the stubborn, foolish people continued in their old ways of worldly pagan celebrations, the damned worldly people did not give them any trouble:

Said God’s stubborn people to poor Jeremiah: 16 As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we will not listen to you! 17 But we will certainly do whatever has gone out of our own mouth, to burn incense to the queen of heaven and pour out drink offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. For then we had plenty of food, were well-off, and saw no trouble. 18 But since we stopped burning incense to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have been consumed by the sword and by famine” (Jeremiah 44:16-18).

In verses 20-23, Jeremiah goes on to explain that, because the people openly denied God’s commandments straight to His face, then they will now suffer this evil (rejection of the worldly and exclusion from their system) — this will eventually save them from the second death if they repent and endure to the end (see these articles for further study: Hell is not Eternal and God Created Evil).

Riding the Fence

You can’t sit on the fence because Satan owns the fence.

If you’re neither cold nor hot, Jesus says He will spew you out (Revelation 3:15-16).

Jesus’ blood did not come to cover one’s hedonism (Jude 1:4)… He came to deliver one from it. If you have a pastor telling you in any way that Jeremiah 10:2-4 somehow doesn’t apply to you, then you’re listening to a worker of Satan’s kingdom.

Please see these articles:

The bible warns that there is a literal conspiracy within the churches to lead you to your spiritual death. See these articles:

Remain in obedience to God and love people with God’s Truths — any resulting anger that may spew from them is between them and God.

Freemasonry is a Luciferian society, and many of it’s lower-degree masons (most of our law enforcement and many pastors in the U.S.) are unaware of the evil to which they have sworn an oath. They are the enforcers and gatekeepers of the antichrist beast system. God will not accept a sworn oath-keeper/idolater into His heavenly kingdom — read Matthew 5:33-37.
