    We live in a day when we can easily miss that an idol can be one of us. Many are lording over God's flock and are themselves enemies of God, yet they become famous and promote their own name and list great lists of their own accomplishments. We need to humble ourselves before God, for the Lamb himself is the one that treads the wine press of the wrath of God. Certainly He know those that are His.

    God has the backs of all those who place their trust in Him

    Vs 2,3 may seem condescending, but that is not the case. Jehovah God is indeed slow to anger and great in power, but will by no means hold back punishment where punishment is due. So we all should examine our steps so as not to be counted as one of God's adversaries. We each reap what we sow.
  • Retno yuniarti for verse 14
    Any graven image is idol and will make God angry, and I have seen in the real life, the painting artist has cursed in their life, because they invite darkness in their life.
