    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
  • Insight 777
    Verse 28, Israel rejects Jesus. They rely on the building of the new temple on temple mount, verse 4, which is not required by Jesus. They think that if they rebuild the temple and begin the animal sacrifices again that the Lord will protect them. Verse 10 says the Lord is expected to forgive their sins if they continue in their old ways of worship verse 24. But they are not going forward accepting Jesus but instead they are going backward and the Lord will reject them for that as shown in verse 15. The result of the actions and insistence in their old ways of worship will cause war to come to Israel. Verse 30 might be speaking of expansion of territory to enlarge Israel. Verse 31 is talking about their children being sacrificed as a result of war which GOD did not ask them to do.
