Idols – Day 3

Revelation 22:15

Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

The Thought

In the closing chapter we read the last Biblical mention of idols, which focuses on the people rather than the idol. If we have things, people or ideas that are too important to us, they become a danger and can affect where we spend eternity.

It is easy to idolise things;- our possessions, (especially if they are heirlooms) or people, (our children, or partners, film stars). It is also possible to idolise ourselves, believing we are right about everything, and going our own way, no matter what others say.

It was clear from the verse from the Ten Commandments which we looked at on Day 1, that God will not tolerate idolatry. He was adamant right through The Bible that idols were, and would be a big problem and He has not changed His mind. They affect not just our lives today, but our eternity.

There will be no idolaters in Heaven!

One good result of the covid pandemic has been that the fear of death made many look more seriously at faith in Jesus, and today revivals are beginning to break out in many places. People who have been church members or church attenders for their lifetime are beginning to look more seriously at what being a Christian really means.

Many of us have been guilty of making the church an idol, in that we go regularly to pay homage to Christianity, without really knowing Christ Himself.


Read the last chapter of your Bible today and be encouraged that we are much nearer to the time of Jesus’ second coming than we were when John wrote his revelation.

Praise God for what He is doing, and pray for revival in your church and in your area. Pray for churches to come together to further God’s Kingdom, Jesus is coming back for ONE bride!
