2 Kings 23:13
”Then the king defiled the high places that were east of Jerusalem, which were on the south of the Mount of Corruption, which Solomon king of Israel had built for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Sidonians, for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites, and for Milcom the abomination of the people of Ammon.”
-The Lord cautioned Israelites against intermarrying with foreign wives who would turn their hearts after their gods. King Solomon however, took wives among the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians and Hittites. He made altars on a hill east of Jerusalem where they worshipped Chemosh god of the Moabites, Milcom god of the Ammonites and Ashtoreth god of the Sidonians. On this mount of corruption; they burnt incense and offered sacrifices to their gods and the Lord became angry with king Solomon and swore to tear down his kingdom during the reign of his son (1 Kin 11:1-12). The Lord has commanded us saying that we should worship no other god but Him alone. Like in the Biblical times, idolatry is still prevalent today among some nations and communities around us which is detestable to the Lord. Idolatry could also occur in form of worship of demons (Rev 9:20), witchcraft (Gal 5:19), money (Mat 6:24), sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed (Col 3:5). Idolatry turns our hearts away from God but God commands us to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
Only You are Sovereign Lord and Ruler over all things, we give You all the adoration and praise. Only You are Holy Lord and all creation rightfully gives You praise. Your throne is everlasting and You rule from generation to generation. Thank You Father for Your everlasting love, nothing can separate us from Your love. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness merciful Father and lead us in the way we should go. Deliver us Jesus from any mountain of corruption and idolatry in our hearts and cover us with Your precious blood. Fill us Holy Spirit with Your fruit and gifts so that we may follow You with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. All glory, honor, power and salvation belongs to You Lord; now and forever. Amen
