Isaiah 42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.
Remember this story from the book of Exodus? The people grew impatient waiting for Moses to come back down from the mountain, so they made an idol to worship. When Moses confronted them, they said, “Well, we just threw a bunch of gold into the fire, and out popped this golden calf!” Reminds me of a little kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar. His huge, innocent eyes and a shrug of the shoulders would seem to imply he had no idea how his hand got there.
Moses was not impressed. Neither is Jehovah, LORD GOD of HOSTS, the Holy One of Israel impressed with all the myriads of gods that humanity has created to their own specifications, to be worshiped according to the ideas of man.
Such foolishness will cause great shame when Messiah establishes His kingdom.
Don’t forget that idols can be more than images of people or animals or trees or whatever. They can also be idols of the heart: Pride, vanity, anger, jealousy, lust–that list is endless. Anything we love more than we love God is an idol.
