"Thou shalt have no other gods before Me" Exodus 20:3
The very first Commandment.
What is it about those 8 words that is so hard to understand among people today? Why is it that this single commandment can be so easily manipulated and ignored by so many?
We are not to worship anyone but the Father, of which we were redeemed through His Son Jesus Christ/Yahushua.
Yahushua is the only mediator between God and man. Therefore we pray to the Father in Yahushua's Name.
And yet there's so many who pray to angels, or dead people, in hopes they will hear them.
It's in vain.
The angels of the Lord have never asked for worship, and they never will, they rebuke it and do not want worship but refer all worship to the Most High Himself. And we certainly aren't to pray to dead people, to those who have died and have moved on to heaven or hell. Praying to Mary is not a fundamental of church doctrine it's necromancy, forbidden by the Bible in the book of Leviticus. Yet Catholics around the world think that's what they're supposed to do because they were told to and accept deception without ever questioning it first.
We are not to pray to dead Mary, or dead Saints, or angels masquerading as the Lord's true and real angels.
Anything other than prayer to the Father in His Son Yahushua's name is forbidden and if you are doing so you are worshipping idols. You are praying to them instead of Him. You are doing the opposite of the first commandment of "thou shalt have no other gods before Me" and you are placing gods in front of Him.
That's why the whole "pray to Mary" thing of Catholicism was Satanically ingenius. It has 500 million people in idol worship and they don't even realize it.
And now we have people praying to Archangel Michael, or other angels of title or position. Such as protection or whatever else they're praying to.
We are commanded to pray to the Father for the things we want or need, to pray to Him in and for all things. Angel worship is demonically inspired, just as praying to dead people, both practices deceive people and lead them astray and into the pit of hell for placing other gods before the Father.
Don't do it.
If you have done it, or you are doing it, stop it and renounce it and ask for forgiveness.
Satan is going to use all these deceptive practices to further lead people into more damning deceptions and errors in the weeks, months, and years to come. And it is the peoples own fault because they are not seeking the Lord for the truth in all things, they're listening to and following after what man tells them to do. Or what seems right in their own eyes. Or they see other people doing it and assume it's the right thing to do.
If Satan can deceive people away from worship of only the Father by throwing saints and angels at them to pray to, imagine what he's got planned when "Ascended Masters" arrive and teach they are worthy to be worshipped and not only them themselves, but that people themselves can also ascend to that kind of status.
One deception leads to the next. If you're prone to be in deceptions now you're going to drown in them later and fall for all of them. The problem is people don't realize they are in deceptions. They think they are doing everything right, after all, everyone else around them is doing it.
Archangel Michael is the big splash now because the overuse and deceptive use of Gabriel has gotten burned out. Or they're just moving on to others now since they've broken that one in for people to accept and they've gotten used to him. They've been using a demon masquerading as Gabriel for false visions and prophecies for the past couple years. Now here comes "Michael the Archangel." These are demonic masquerades and even aliens posing as real angels folks, not the real angels of the Lord.
"Thou shalt have no other gods before Me."
Get rid of the gods.
Exalt His Holy Name, Yehovah, our Father which art in Heaven. Don't fall for the deceptions.
