Maaz's Monument photoMost call these Sacred Pillars, Monuments. In the U.S. alone it was easy to find over a dozen.  They can be found in Pakistan, Russia, Bolivia, Rome, Wales, Sweden, Egypt, Spain and many, many more countries around the world.

Beyond the fact, it’s just plain strange, that these Pillars can be found all over the world, I discovered some very specific teachings against erecting anything like them in your land.

“You shall not make for yourselves idols, nor shall you set up for yourselves an image or a sacred pillar, nor shall you place a figured stone in your land… ” Leviticus 26:1

While doing a word search at Biblehub of sacred pillars, (sacred stones, Ashura poles, sacred trees, groves and oaks) I found reasons that made it quite clear Why these physical symbols were and always will be so detestable to YHVH.

YHVH chose the Seed of Abraham to be “Set Apart” from the practices of idol worship, which is anything other than the One Who made everything, and it was so they (Israel) could purify the land of Canaan of these Pillars.  These are symbols of everything our Creator hates.

*Ironically, these “Set Apart” people eventually began doing the same perverse things they were to cleanse from the land. Ezra 9:1

Monuments may be a sign of Strongholds in the Land

These are landmarks, physical symbols that people claim represent good character.  In reality they represent a people inflamed with insatiable lust who willingly slaughtered their own babies, Isaiah 57:5.

“They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons, (these idols) And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and their daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with the blood.” Psalm 106:37

“…every abominable act which the YHVH hates they have done for their gods; for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.”  Deuteronomy 12:31Deuteronomy 18:102 Kings 16:3Ezekiel 20:30;  Ezekiel 20:31.

In our present day thinking it may be difficult to relate to this type of barbaric Idol worship.  After all, nobody is physically bowing down to these pillars or so blatantly doing the very things YHVH abhors, right?

Have you ever wondered why we don’t know much about Ancient Temple Prostitution or the names of the gods they burned their babies to in the fire?

YHVH instructed the people He “Set Apart,” (from the ways of the world) to demolish every alter, Ashura Pole, Sacred Pillar and the names of these idles, names and all were to be wiped out completely, Deuteronomy 12:3.  And they were, several times…

Fast forward to the 1800’s when the first Obelisks began popping up as symbols of noble character, memorial monuments.  Is it a coincidence that our nations pornography epidemic, Human trafficking and other physical, lust inflaming addictions have been steadily increasing over the past 200 years?

*Today baby burning is not done publicly, yet record numbers abort their living babies and probably don’t even consider that they are cremated.

1 Corinthians we are the Temple

YHVH Is, Was and Always Will Be Love, Wisdom, Understanding, Everything Good/Kind/Humble/Giving, Merciful, Compassionate, Just, Impartial, Unchanging, All-knowing, Everlasting/Perpetual, Infinite, Faithful, All-powerful, Incomprehensible, Unequaled, Invisible, Reality/Truth, Peace, Light, The (Spiritual) Bread of Life, The (Spiritual) Living Water, The (Spiritual) Tree of Life, He is a Life Giving Spirit and an All Consuming Fire.

These are some of the Spirits attributes that not everyone has eyes to see or ears to hear.  So how can we perceive if our Creators Unseen Spirit is dwelling within us?

Our Creator has set Eternity (everlasting Spiritual Reality) within the hearts of (all) mankind, Ecclesiastes 3:11

Everything the Maker of the universe has created declares His glory,  Psalm 19:1.  His invisible attributes, Eternal Power and Divine Nature can be clearly seen, (with our physical eyes) and understood by what He has made, so we (all people) are without excuse, Romans 1:19.

Yet YHVH is unseen, remaining a mystery and purposely allowing the ego to be blind and proud.  This Spiritual Mystery is revealed only to the humble.  

Only those who wholeheartedly seek Him will find Him, Deuteronomy 4:29Jeremiah 29:13.

Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and malice, it is humbly we receive the implanted Word which is our Salvation. James 1:21

The Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding and Truth is the Word of YHVH, Ephesians 6:17.

Moses wrote, “the Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it.”  Deuteronomy 30:14.  1500 years later  we see this Word is fulfilled in Y’shua, Romans 10:8,  The Word of YHVH,  John 1:1.  Also known as The Way, The Truth and The Life, which is the Hebrew meaning of Torah.

The religious leaders of Y’shua’s day had the Torah memorized yet they could not grasp this teaching, “love your neighbor as yourself,” Leviticus 19:18.

The religious leaders didn’t understand  “neighbor” included everyone.  (See Y’shua’s answer to, Who is my neighbor? Luke 10:29)

Y’shua spent three years exposing the false doctrines these religious leaders added to YHVH’s Torah.  Both then and now religious leaders have added and taken away from the eternal Torah of YHVH, in spite of these clear instructions, Deuteronomy 4:2;  Deuteronomy 12:32.

Does the Spirit Live or Reign Within Us?

So the real question isn’t who does the Spirit live within, it’s who does the Spirit reign within?

We can discern who truly knows and yields to the Spirit within them because everyone’s words and actions eventually reveal their heart, John 16:3Matthew 12:34.

Y’shua taught us to observe ourselves and others.  “The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His Ways/Torah, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him; 5 but whoever keeps His Word, in him the Love of YHVH has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: 6 the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked. 1 John 2:51 John 2:6

Y’shua walked in Torah, The One and Only, Way of Life.  He did not come to abolish even the smallest letter of Torah but to fulfill the Truth of everything it teaches us about His Spirit, Matthew 5:17;  Psalm 40:7Hebrews 10:7Luke 24:27.

“YHVH is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth.”  John 4:24.

When we know The Spirit of our Creator lives within everyone we also understand why we must Love one another.  Y’shua taught us there is only One Spirit, by our actions toward others, “you did it to Me. Matthew 25:40
