Ezekiel 6:3–5, High places…idols…corpses.As a judgment against the backslid and idolatrous “mountains [nations or governmental seats] of Israel” (Ezek 6:1), YHVH promises to bring a sword against his people as they are worshipping their idols instead of him. The “mountains of Israel” in this instance is a poetic and prophetic Hebraism for the nations of Israel that YHVH has scattered around the world because of his judgments against their sin.
In this modern age, few people bow down to literal idols, but idolatry is as rampant now as it was in ancient times. Any person, thing or idea that gets in the way of or hinders a person from worshipping and obeying Elohim is an idol to that person. It may be money, sex, drugs, education, power, sports, philosophies, entertainment, pleasure, material possessions or false religions.
The “mountains of Israel” today are largely the so-called and formerly Christian nations of the world, which are backslid spiritually.
Typically and biblically, YHVH raised up Israel’s enemies to punish his backslid people in hopes that they will repent of their sinful ways and return to him. The biblical Edom (or the modern jihadist Moslems) and along with other terrorists is one YHVH’s end times paddle by which he is spanking his wayward people.
So what are the high places of the Christian nations where their idols are located that Edom is attacking resulting in slain corpses being strewn about? Think of the places where Edom and its satanic terrorist fellow travellers who are bent on killing, stealing and destroying have been detonating bombs and spraying bullets in their attempts to massacre the “people of the book” (as the Koran calls them), who are the Jews and the Christians. The West’s high places of idol worship include sports arenas and sporting events, Christmas parties, schools, night clubs, “gay” night clubs, financial centers, churches, educational centers, places of business and other places of religious activity, places of governmental authority and military installations to name a few. All these high places where idolatry occurs represent the gods and idolatrous concepts of post-Christian Israelites who have rejected Elohim for their idols. These are YHVH’s judgments upon his people to bring them to repentance and back to him.
When our tribulations get too light, we tend to stray. I read somewhere (I read a lot) that to crush the head of the wheat an instrument used was the tribulum from which we get the word tribulation.
‘Sun worship’ equals Sunday worship.
Interesting that Herod was an Edomite! One of the most evil men alive at Yeshua’s birth. I have wondered if the Edomites were also part of the Sanhedrin at the time of Yeshua’s ministry. Herod did put to death dozens of former members of the Sanhedrin. Perhaps to put his own in their place.
