imageGideon’s family members were idol worshippers who had a shrine altar to pour drinks for idols and blood sacrifice of animals to deity gods. Yet despite Gideon’s family dedication in serving their idols,  gods, things got worse for community. They worked extremely hard in fields so planted seed crops in the right season. Cleared their fields in anticipation of getting a great harvest beforehand. Instead of enjoying fruits of their hard work, the enemy deprived them from planned reward. Each year they woke up to find harvest gone and taken by enemies. So their idols did not defend or save them from the enemies. Gideon was broken hearted so spent his time crying, lamenting and grieving over their loss in their empty barn. God Almighty saw Gideon’s grief but Gideon lacked wisdom and understanding it is God the creator who gives increased crops. So God took pity on Gideon and sent angel to help plan, prepare to fight to defeat enemies who robbed them.However, God gave Gideon a condition to Obey God to do His Command to get rid of family idols to focus exclusively on worshipping God. So God instructed Gideon to pull down and to tear down to destroy shrine and to sacrifice bull or cow meant for idols to GOD ALMIGHTY. So Gideon knew exactly the reaction of the family members so chose a few trusted servants to destroy the shrine grove at night. Gideon also built a new Altar to God to replace idol altar. Gideon obeyed God so sacrificed his natural father’s sacred cow to the Living God to make a new covenant. God was pleased so helped Gideon to defeat the enemies who harassed them. One would think, Gideon’s family will rejoice and see the reason to join Gideon’s new found faith in the Living God. Instead they wanted to kill Gideon for secretly destroying shrine grove and sacrificing their sacred cow to God. God is Creator Owner of the cow and Real God so Has Right to ask Gideon to sacrifice cow to Him instead of worshipping it as god.
Gideon told them a Real Powerful God needs nobody to defend Him so nobody must be killed for the shrine destroyed to get rid of false gods to accept the Living God. Therefore let the god defend itself to prove if really a True God. Instead of killing Gideon they thanked God for sending help to deliver them. So their idol was not offended for being replaced by the genuine True GOD ALMIGHTY. Gideon proved they served a dead false god that did not defend or save so switched to Kingdom of the Living God and saved. Gideon was delivered by God from their enemies and changed from evil ways to worship and serve the True Living God. God translated Gideon from kingdom of darkness into the Glorious Kingdom of Gospel of Light of Jesus Christ with his whole family and nation. They travelled annually to Jerusalem to pray in God’s House of Prayer for all nations. Whom the Son Jesus sets free is free indeed so Gideon’s family became saved. God defended Gideon by giving him victory to surprise his enemies. Many people blindly follow the family tradition and ancestral covenant of dedication to idol shrines. Some families take idol names as commitment to the gods. Others are named after river gods or fertility gods, without realising they sold their soul to devil. ALMIGHTY GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD so Will Not Share His Glory with anyone. The Living God warns those who feel that they need lesser gods as messengers to speak directly to God. So do not need idols to speak for family to God on their behalf. Talk to God directly yourself. This is because idols have eyes but do not see, they have ears but do not hear, they have mouths but cannot speak or eat, they have legs but do not walk so do not act on behalf of you or  anyone before God. God said those who worship them are spiritually blind and dumb or lame like them. In Hebrews 9:13-10:6, the Bible says in 13, though blood of bulls, goats, ashes of a heifer sprinkled on the unclean people sanctifies and purifies the flesh. 14 So Much More is Priceless Blood of Christ Jesus by Eternal Spirit Offered Without Spot to God on the Cross of Calvary. So purged conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
15 For this cause Jesus is the Mediator of New Testament by means of death, for redemption of transgressions. The first testament is for those who only received promise of eternal inheritance. 16 New Testament promise is fulfilled through Jesus by necessity of death as A New Testator.17 Jesus Christ is the New Testament so 18 the Gospel is Fulfillment of Old Testament. 19 Moses in the first testament spoke to all the people according to the law. He took blood of calves, goats, water, scarlet wool, hyssop, sprinkled the Holy Book and people. 20 Saying, with this blood of the testament God is Enjoined to you. 21 Sprinkled the blood on tabernacle and all vessels of the ministry. 22 All things by law were then purged by the animal sacrifice by their blood because without shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. 23 It was necessary pattern of things then but now heaven is purified by the better sacrifice of Jesus Christ. God sent Jesus The Ultimate Sacrifice to redeem believers with His Precious Blood in Jesus Name so wrote our names in the Book of Life. 24 Christ Entered into the Holiest Place made with hands. In heaven appears in the presence of God for us. 25 Jesus Offered Himself as High Priest, Entered the Holy Place to replace need for the yearly blood sacrifices of past rituals.
image 26 Despite the fact since foundation of world it was done, Once Jesus Christ Appeared to put away sin by Sacrifice of Himself, it is no longer necessary for Christians to continue animal or human sacrifice. 27 It is appointed unto men once to die and after this is judgement of God. 28 So Christ Once and For All Offered to bear the sins of all people of all nations. Look to Jesus to appear the second time without sin unto salvation. In Hebrews 10:1, the law was a shadow of good things to come so Jesus Christ is the Good News of the Gospel Offered as a Timeless Perfect Sacrifice. 2 So do not offer animal or human sacrifices as worshippers of God. Once purged by the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ there is no more conscience of sins. 3 For making sacrifices is remembrance again of sin every year. 4 For it is not possible for the blood of bulls of goats to take away sins. 5 Jesus came into the world to Sacrifice His Life as an Offering. The law can never sacrifice year by year continually to make perfect. Cease to offer sacrifices because Jesus Christ paid the price for all sins. Greater Love has no man than Only Jesus Christ Who Sacrificed His Own Life for all. The efforts of man to sacrifice again means rejection of the Finished Work of Christ. It is not possible the blood of bulls and of goats to take away mankind’s sins. The Sacrifice Offered by the body of Christ was prepared by God Himself.6 Burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin, God has no pleasure. This is why on mount Carmel Elijah asked the people to choose to serve only the True Living God or perish. Idol worshippers create their own gods from wood, gold, silver, bronze, clay, statues, sculptors from the rocks made by God, gives the credit to creation more than give honour to God the Creator. So idol worship fetish ritual is occult control to manipulate people to play on fears, shortcomings. God is not pleased by idol covenant to subject the whole family, nations into serfdom, shrine marriage bondage, slavery from generation to generation.
It is built on primitive fear and scandals especially where people are desperate for fertility solution, child birth, wealth and healing. People do anything to achieve things without realising such spiritual satanic bondage cuts the people off from God’s Presence forever in sin. People repent and seek the face of God personally not to be lost forever in God’s eternal damnation for rejecting Jesus Christ. The devil uses witchcraft to fool people into thinking actions are acceptable to God. Gideon is a great example in Bible plus Manasseh, others who destroyed idol groves to rebuild faith in the Living God. God calls upon all to obey Him to destroy family shrine altars to replace with God’s Altar. Gideon’s obedience to God brought victory for the family and the whole community. Those saved in family can pray for God to open the spiritual eyes of their hearts to better understand God’s Spirit of Truth. The truth you know sets you free in Jesus Name. Ask God’s Divine Guidance Protection Cover of Jesus’ blood to set you free from the idol spiritual bondage. If you have any shrine marks on your body, own any objects, possess tokens, as point of contact from shrines burn or give to deliverance minister for Godly Counsel. Make sure you do accept Jesus Christ as a faithful worshipper of God only. Study and read your Bible daily to understand God’s will and purpose for righteous living in Jesus Name. In extreme cases you may have to choose God First above all else but God is Faithful so will make a way for you in Jesus Name. Time is running out for Jesus to return so ensure you belong exclusively to God in Jesus Name. You cannot serve two masters combining both the Worship of God with worship of idols in secret. You destroy yourself and family by so doing. Jesus came to destroy all works of the devil over our lives to deliver us from all destructions in Jesus Name. God wants all people to Love Him and love one another in Jesus Name to live together in peace.
