You Become What You Worship And Believe In

15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by the hands of men. 16 They have mouths, but cannot speak; they have eyes, but cannot see; 17 they have ears, but cannot hear; nor is there breath in their mouths. 18 Those who make them become like them, as do all who trust in them.

Psalm 135:15-18 BSB

The concept of an idol and why Satan uses it is because of what it does. An idol takes the place of God and rules the person’s life by directing him or her in a specific direction. It will take the individual into a path of deep darkness—away from the light—reaching a point that one can no longer comprehend what is true anymore.

In Scripture, an idol is called “a lie.” What a lie does, it turns everything upside down—like bad is good, good is bad, wrong is right, right is wrong, sin is righteous, righteous is sin, down is up, up is down, light is dark, dark is light, etc. Satan’s language is to speak in lies.

Psalm 135:18 says that you are what you believe and worship. If you trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and worship Him, who is life, it makes you alive and gives you light to see the truth. But, if you worship idols, which are dead and lifeless, you become like them—spiritually dead—walking in pure darkness. 

How about you, what do you believe? Do you assume that idols can hear your prayers and can give you what you have asked? If you do, you will base your life on a lie, and everything you do will be for the lie. Faith in Idols, in a false Jesus, a false gospel, and a false spirit—all of them will take you to hell. We have to believe in the right Jesus, as the Scriptures declare Him to be so, that we can know the truth— setting us free from the lie that leads to death.

  1. Hi
    I really appreciate what you are doing, so thank you.
    I agree with you doctrinally on mostly everything from what I’ve seen.
    I had to say though, that we cannot always assume people have never been saved if they fall into sin because the Word says if we confess then He will forgive. It gives stark warnings about holiness. David himself sinned terribly over a significant period and yet God did not abandon him, rather, He disciplined him. In Revelation Jesus is warning His Church to repent or He says He will remove the lampstand. If Christians are sinning they need to wake up but it does not necessarily indicate that they were never saved. This is not always the case. God bless you, and thanks again.

  2. Thank you, Mr. Whitehill, for your comment. I agree with what you said in regards to forgiveness. My post wasn’t about, if a believer sins, could he ask for forgiveness? My post was about when someone seeks after an idol rather than Christ.

    To touch upon what you said. Biblically, if a Christian sins, he or she repents and the Lord will forgive their sins. But, if they commit the sin of apostasy, 1 John 2:19, clearly states that they were never saved in the first place. Or, if they claim to follow Jesus Christ but still live in sin with no change at all, that means they never received the Holy Spirit. The evidence of a believer is a changed life through conversion and working of the Spirit of God.

    I appreciate your encouragement and I hope you stop by again. May the Lord bless you.
