14 Then He brought me to the entrance of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and behold, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz. 15 He said to me, “Do you see this, son of man? Yet you will see still greater abominations than these.” 16 Then He brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house. And behold, at the entrance to the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs to the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east; and they were prostrating themselves eastward toward the sun. 17 He said to me, “Do you see this, son of man? Is it too light a thing for the house of Judah to commit the abominations which they have committed here, that they have filled the land with violence and provoked Me repeatedly? For behold, they are putting the twig to their nose. 18 Therefore, I indeed will deal in wrath. My eye will have no pity nor will I spare; and though they cry in My ears with a loud voice, yet I will not listen to them.” ~ Ezekiel 8:14-18
That was a revelation of the idolatry that was in the hearts of the priesthood, and the people. The God of Ezekiel is bearing witness that, as it was in that Temple and with that people, so it is in the Church and with this people today. The men who were prostrating themselves eastward toward the sun and the women who were weeping for Tammuz were following the customs of idol worship. Those acts betrayed the idolatry in their hearts. In the Temple where you worship, and I'm writing these words to you , reading here right now, are those who worship those same idols. Their idolatry is exposed.
In THIS temple:
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit. ~ Ephesians 2:19-22
Perhaps it has already been revealed to you that the Pope worships the same sun god and goddess that was worshiped in Ezekiel's day. Perhaps it has also been revealed how that most of the rest of Christianity follows their customs, with relatively little difference between them. What I'm putting on exhibit involves institutions of the holy temple you may still see as innocent of that same idolatry. Let it speak to you about the idolatry in the hearts of the leaders and the people, and if there is, in this revelation, a personal conviction, take an unblinking look at your own practices that betray idolatry. What lawlessness have you tolerated that you have secretly justified? The work of this hour must pierce deeply, because judgment has come.
