They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them. They have made themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, ‘This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!’”
-The Israelites made a golden calf, worshipped it & sacrificed to it under the leadership of Aaron. In the same way Oholah & Oholibah sacrificed their own children to their idols on the Lords sanctuary & defiled it (Ezek 23:36-39). This was a common practice among the Gentile communities who were excluded from the Abrahamic covenant of God made for him & his descendants. Apostle Paul discloses that the Gentiles always sacrificed to demons & not God for they did not know Him (1 Cor 10:20). Further, that they were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel & strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope & without God in the world. But now through the blood of Christ, Gentiles who were far off have been brought near in Him (Eph 2:12-13).
We humbly implore You Father, thanking You for uniting the whole world by Your blood. By the same blood cleanse the whole world from idolatry of sacrifice to other gods & idolatry of our hearts. May we be united by Your divine peace at all times that Your goodness & mercy may follow us all the days of our lives. Amen
