Idolatry and covetousness are rampant. The enemy has made covetousness commonplace and idols out of sex, lifestyles and belief systems. These two are competing for the very souls of men and most are unaware.
When your beliefs outweigh MY word, your belief becomes an idol and it contradicts MY plan. You have slipped into the same self righteousness, that caused Lucifer to fall from Heaven.
No one contradicts ME and all must give an account, an account for what you say, what you do and what you think. Though the world has authorized it, the world does not have the authority to make it holy.
Open your eyes, the enemy has caused men to elevate what is carnal to appear equivalent to that which is spiritual. Carnal things pass away, but matters of the spirit are eternal. Your spirit man and your carnal man are not equals.
Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.
