Idolatry Causes Calamities


Yes, you are not hearing it from news, pulpits and relief agencies where their only moralizing on Houston and Florida is how they come together, that is good because all Americans caused it, but God as always in calamities and adversity has “idolatry” that He hates, in mind; and the real grace is that no more lives were lost in so much total destruction. While these people including the worldly weather men are silent on the cause of calamities, the Bible has much to say on the subject.

25-6: Calamities That Cause Both Ears to Tingle!

This is a timely subject for us, as the ears of American are tingling today from the shock and surprises of current calamities like floods, fires, and tornadoes; and add to this the unparalleled historical series of calamities on this nation since 911, so that THIS IS A TIME FOR THE TINGLING OF EARS. And as the ears tingle, the American mind, knowing all of these legally are called “acts of God”, is ravaged with the thoughts of how much did God have to do with these calamities. Much insight comes from the study of “calamities” in the Bible.
1. This subject is very timely to these Bible Studies in Jeremiah as we know of the great calamity of desolation that God Himself brought on Judah and Jerusalem because of their idolatry. Ezekiel, the Prophet in Assyria and
contemporary with Jeremiah, spoke of this same idolatry and the calamity brought of the house of God Himself in Ezekiel–
“Then those of you who escape will remember Me among the nations where they are carried captive, because I was crushed by their adulterous heart which has departed from Me, and by their eyes which play the harlot after their idols; they will loathe themselves for the evils which they committed in all their abominations. And they shall know that I am the LORD; I have not said in vain THAT I WOULD BRING THIS CALAMITY UPON THEM. {Where did the calamity come from, it came from God, He “brought this calamity upon them”, did you miss that!} (Ezekiel 6:9-10)

“Thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Pound your fists and stamp your feet {is this what some Americans are doing in Alabama and along the flooded Mississippi River?}, and say, ‘Alas, for all the evil abominations of Israel! For they shall fall by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence.” {God is in charge and is the determinative factor although He can use warfare, hungry, and pestilence even as He can use floods, fires, and hurricanes to chastise His own people in calamities of the first kind.} (Ezekiel 6:11)
“He who is far off shall die by the pestilence, he who is near shall fall by the sword, and he who remains and is besieged shall die by the famine. Thus will I spend My fury upon them.” (Ezekiel 6:12)
NOTE: The Pope reflects the majority opinion of the world, and Americans, that anything bad can not come from God. Well, reconcile that with the Bible statement in God’s own words, “Thus will I spend My fury upon them.”


THEN IDOLATRY IS CURED! What is the cure of idolatry, a major calamity from God Himself!
“Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when their slain are among their idols all around {have you noticed in the increased series of calamities since 911 how many more churches are hit, and how the intensity of causalities has increased because God’s people of America are not listening!} their altars, on every high hill, on all the mountaintops, under every green tree, and under every thick oak, wherever they offered sweet incense to all their idols.”
(Ezekiel 6:13)
2. You quickly and easily recognize “calamities” as sent from God against idolatry in God’s chasing chastisement of the remnant which escaped to Egypt after the destruction and desolation of Judah and Jerusalem. {Recall that they asked for the word of God through Jeremiah whether to go from Mispah to Egypt, God told them they would be safe if they remained in the land; and then after Jeremiah delivered another message of condemnation about idolatry to them down in Pathros of Egypt, they blatantly refused to stop worshiping idols like the Queen of Heaven.}
(1). Jeremiah 44:2.
“Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: ‘You have seen all the CALAMITY that I have brought on Jerusalem and on all the cities of Judah; and behold, this day they are a desolation, and no one dwells in them, because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke Me to
anger, that they went to burn incense and to serve OTHER gODS whom they did not know, they nor you nor your fathers.” (Jeremiah 44:2,3)
What part do you not understand of “I have brought on Jerusalem and all the cities of Judah”?
(2). Jeremiah 44:11 where “catastrophe” is a stronger and bigger calamity.
“They have not been humbled, to this day, nor have they feared: they have not walked in My law or in My statutes that I set before you and your fathers. Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts {again He is God of all the world, God of the Gentiles and Jews and all nations}, the God of Israel {the world really came to know Him foremost as the God of Israel during the reigns of David and Solomon}: ‘Behold, I will set My face against you for CATASTROPHE and for cutting off all Judah.” (Jeremiah 44:10,11)
(3). Jeremiah 44:23,
“So the LORD could no longer bear it, because of the evil of your doings and because of the abominations which you committed. Therefore your land is a desolation, an astonishment, a curse, and without an inhabitant, as it is this day. {what if we had a Jeremiah with the courage today to tell America that since these floods have come from the great God of the Universe, your land is in many places flooded and burned and a desolation; you are astonished that things can change so quickly when God’s blessings turn into a curse because of repeated and continuous idolatry, that God really does send curses just like He has previously sent blessings; and some of these lands, farm lands and downtown cities like in Memphis and New Orleans will also at least temporarily
be “without an inhabitant”}, as it is this day. Because you have burned incense and because you have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD or walked in His law, in His statutes or in His testimonies, therefore this CALAMITY has happened to you, as at this day.” (Jeremiah 44:22,23)
(4). Jeremiah 44:29. “Adversity” another word for Calamity.
“’And this shall be a sign to you,’ says the LORD, ‘that I will punish you in this place {the “place” was Egypt, chastisement was chased by calamity as the remnant of Jews tried to escape to Egypt and continue their idol worship of the Queen of Heaven}, that you may know that My words will surely stand against you for ADVERSITY.’” (Jeremiah 44:29)
God and Jeremiah wanted no misunderstanding of the reason for this adversity, as would Americans learn with the unparalleled series of intense calamities since 911 that God is both trying to speak and speak against His number one anger, IDOLATRY.

Demonic Veil of a False Rapture and Scofield

“Conservative resurgence” in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), what a deceptive joke, Lifeway the official publisher of the SBC along with Oxford Press has now moved Scofield to the Bible cover like he is the twentieth century man of the year, {man of sin and son of perdition}

NOTE: Notice in the Bible cover how they made him look like Criswell.

. They have now moved Scofield from the notes at the bottom of Bible pages, and from the outer edge of the Bible, TO THE COVER, AS IF TO REPLACE THE IMAGE OF CHRIST WHICH COMEs THROUGH THE BIBLE WITH THE IMAGE OF SCOFIELD, a man of sin.
A good case, in the very subtle nature of Satan, could be made for Scofield as “the man of sin, the son of perdition” , and Jeffress after the quiet and deceitful years as pastor of FBC Dallas has suddenly come out of the closet for hyperdispensationalism.

2 Thessalonians 2 (NKJV)
The Great Apostasy

2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Since the Apostle John stated in the first century and in I John that there are many anti-Christs in the world now, and of course many more now; and since Cyrus Scofield is now sitting “as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God”; and further since Satan is far more subtle than we know, he realizing his release from bondage is imminent has chosen Scofield, Oxford Press, and the SBC as his number one choice as the son of perdition, the man of sin.
Foolish why, we already know that the falsely called “rapture” about which you have recently heard so much, is THE DEMONIC VEIL OF THE RAPTURE {], designed by Tim LeHaye formerly of the Shadow Mountain Baptist Church of Dr. Jeremiah, and both graduates with Jeffress of the Scofield breeding grounds of Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS); and we know that anyone, anywhere has to be demon controlled to violate Revelation 22:18-10.

A Warning

“For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

You need no other proof of the guilt here of Scofieldites than you can not find their favorite words–rapture, dispensationalism, and millennium–any place in the Bible, not one single time.

Bad Mathematical Hermeneutics by Scofield.

Don’t Be Any Part of This Bad Mathematical Hermeneutics

“…so any study of that Word which ignores those divisions must be in large measure profitless and confusing.” (From Cyrus’s Hermeneutics I course called “Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth”.)


This is part of the bad hermeneutics of Scofield, and helps to explain both the haughty nature of Scofield mites and their bad hermeneutics, a condemning and seductive spirit that not only condemns all the Bible students of the word today but also in the long history of Bible study. What a bad attitude! Many, many, many of us can testify to 50 plus years of beneficial and fruitful, blessed of God, Bible reading and study without even knowing either the 7 dispensations (or “divisions” as he calls them), or without knowing about them. For 13 hours flying over the Atlantic in Naval Aviation at low altitude in all weather, my red Scofield Reference Bible was read without looking at his notes, and honestly until today many years later of Christian life and service, this is the first day I have allowed myself to look at the mud of Scofield’s original dispensations.

Doctrine of Christ #1: Jesus is Better, the book of Hebrews.

“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself[a] purged our[b] sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.”  (Hebrews 1:1-4)
