    Then and now the people do the abominations that God hates only to come to their places of worship to appease their consciences. This is useless God sees all of this. They worship other God's which they spend their time and money on. instead of justice and mercy they oppress. God is not in their places of worship but is on the outside knocking on the door waiting for them to open it up to him.

    Bring it on up to 2017 into our times. Idols now are our tablets, computers and mobile devices of any kind. Although synonymous, we can use it for good or bad. We can go on it 3 minutes a day and give God first fruits of our day and week or we can use the high technology for IDOL WORSHIP. As Christians, we must be very careful not to offend God. We must put God, through Christ Jesus First.
  • this is the warning to us now if we repent of our sins he god will come to us he is near .closer than you think
