Are Pictures Unlawful Images?
  • According to the law of Ahayah Alahayim, pictures of any sort or kind of living things that were created on the 5th and 6th day of creation in Genesis 1:20-27 are unlawful images. We were commanded not to make any images of theses living creatures. The law distinguishes the righteous from the unlawful, seeing as though making pictures on clothing and on walls were customs of the Heathen and unbelievers of Israel of old time. We must be mindful of the customs of the Heathen for they are vain. {Jer 10:1-2} The stock that comes from their idols are the doctrines of vanity {Jer 10:8}. The servants of Ahayah Alahayim, Jew and Gentile, stand aloof from these things and walk in the wisdom of Alahayim in the sight of all nations.  

Deuteronomy 4:2-6

2  Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of Ahayah your Alahayim which I command you.

5  Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as Ahayah my Alahayim commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.

6  Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

Deuteronomy 4:15-18

[15]Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that Ahayah spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: 

[16]Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

[17]The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,

[18]The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:

  • Pictures are also unlawful images according to the law:

Leviticus 26:1

[1]Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image H4906 of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am Ahayah your Alahayim. 

Definition:

H4906

Original: משׂכּית

BBD definition:1.show-piece, figure, imagination, image, idol, picture

Strong's Definition: From the same as H7906; a figure (carved on stone, the wall, or any object); figuratively imagination: -conceit, image (-ry), picture, X wish.

  • Pictures are wicked abominations in Ahayah's eyes. and we broke the law by making them. 

Ezekiel 8:9-12

[9] And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.

[10] So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about. (people had shrines of pictures in their homes. We learned these customs from the gentiles, so we get understanding of where the modern concept of having a bunch of pictures of people and creatures of the earth, sea and sky.)

[11] And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.

[12] Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, Ahayah seeth us not; Ahayah hath forsaken the earth. (These were shrines of pictures, similar to what one can find in all the mainstream religions of today with their house of idols. The concept of having a room of statues, relics, and images stem from the unclean spirits that lead the sons of men astray to make unclean similucra after the flood,{Jublees 11:5-6} and it was prevelant in Bablylon. {Jasher 11:14-49} )

  • Today there are pictures of living creatures all over the world, and make no marvel, for the world is given into the hand of the wicked. {Job 9:24} They are preparing the world for when Satan shall have his image in every city in the end-time as well. {Rev 13:14, Ascension of Isaiah 4:10-11} So it behooves them to put unlawful images everywhere to deceive the world to think they are not against the law, which sedates the people in preparation for his image, which they will agree to since they have been so use to pictures and statues everywhere. The unbelievers had sent out images of men to cause the world to stumble  according to scriptures to confirm that even pictures of people are a stumblingblock.

​Wis 14:11  

Therefore even upon the idols of the Gentiles shall there be a visitation: because in the creature of Alahayim they are become an abomination, and stumblingblocks to the souls of men, and a snare to the feet of the unwise. 
Wis 14:12
  

For the devising of idols was the beginning of spiritual fornication, and the invention of them the corruption of life. 

.Wis 14:15  

For a father afflicted with untimely mourning, when he hath made an image of his child soon taken away, now honoured him as a alahayim, which was then a dead man, and delivered to those that were under him ceremonies and sacrifices. 
Wis 14:16  

Thus in process of time an unalahayimly custom grown strong was kept as a law, and graven images were worshipped by the commandments of kings. 
Wis 14:17 

 Whom men could not honour in presence, because they dwelt far off, they took the counterfeit of his visage from far, and made an express image of a king whom they honoured, to the end that by this their forwardness they might flatter him that was absent, as if he were present. 
Wis 14:18  

Also the singular diligence of the artificer did help to set forward the ignorant to more superstition
Wis 14:19  

For he, peradventure willing to please one in authority, forced all his skill to make the resemblance of the best fashion. 
Wis 14:20  

And so the multitude, allured by the grace of the work, took him now for a aahayim, which a little before was but honoured. 
Wis 14:21  And
this was an occasion to deceive the world: for men, serving either calamity or tyranny, did ascribe unto stones and stocks the incommunicable name. 

  • The false prophet is preparing to have his image in every city just as the former idolaters had sent out the image of the man to deceive the world.   

Rev 13:13  

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 
Rev 13:14  

And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 

Ascension of Isaiah 4:12

12. And he will set up his image before him in every city.

 

  • The nations have practiced making images to help forward the agenda, yet Ahayah commanded not to do after their doings to kep us from falling.

Leviticus 18:1-3

1  And Ahayah spake unto Moses, saying,

2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am Ahayah your Alahayim.

After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.

  • It is unlawful to do the things that the Egyptians and the inhabitants of Canaan did. They made pictures in Canaan and Egypt. These are clear indications that pictures are against Ahayah's law. 

Numbers 33:52

[51] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan;

52]Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places: (notice statues and pictures were destroyed because both are unlawful)

Jasher 80:44-45

[44] And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was a great cry throughout Egypt in that night, for there was not a house in which there was not a corpse.

[45] Also the likenesses of the first born of Egypt, which were carved in the walls at their houses, were destroyed and fell to the ground. (They kept pictures in the houses of their families for their memory to live on. This is a custom of the gentiles, not the servants of Alahayim.)

  • Ahayah wants us to be Holy as He is holy. He had his people destroy pictures in Canaan, and He himself destroyed pictures in Egypt so we are not to do after their doings. He also commanded not to learn the way of the heathen and it is found among them the making of images of people so that we may be admonished not to make images of people either.

Jer 10:2

  Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 

Ezekiel 23:14-15

[14]And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with vermilion, (these were actual pictures drawn on the walls, not merely statues)

[15]Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity:​​

  •  The Greeks sought to put images in our records since the days of Maccabees. Our bibles we have today, we can see, they succeeded since we can hardly find a bible without unlawful images in them today. 

1 Maccabees 3:48

[48]And laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images

[49] They brought also the priests' garments, and the firstfruits, and the tithes: and the Nazarites they stirred up, who had accomplished their days.

[50] Then cried they with a loud voice towards heaven, saying what shall we do with these, and wither shall we carry them away?

  • The israelites cried unto Ahayah for guidance on what to do with the books because the images painted in the books were against the law, yet the book were essential for our survival that we may have a guide to understand the wisdom of Alahayim and his prophecies. Hence we have been given the grace to keep the books for edification, though they have unlawful images in them. This is also the same with our government documents, passports, drivers license, and money, which all have unlawful images on them, but are necessary for our survival in the kingdom of the Greco-Romans that is still prevalent to this day. We have scriptural edification on this fact in the new testament, where money had unlawful images on them, but we had to render unto Caesar what belonged to Caesar, which means we have to have the passport, license, and money as the government requires since it's their kingdom until the time comes when they look to fully implement the mark of the beast after the 1274 days of the beast. We would have fled society after the 1260th day trying to get to the wilderness. So we have to give Caesar what is his, but we have to render unto Alahayim what belongs to Alahayim, which means we have to keep his law and bear his fruits. We do not make or keep pictures of any living thing that is not government required for peaceful living in the society of the nations, along with our books for edification of the Body to live peaceably in this society until the time comes when we have to flee to the wilderness. 

Matthew 22:17-22

17  Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

18  But Yache perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

19  Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

20  And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? 

21  They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto Alahayim the things that are Alahayim's.

22  When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

  •  We ought to render our bodies as living sacrifices in obedience to the law that the the image of Alahayim, which is Christ, may be within us to show that we belong to him, and render unto Ceasar, which is the government, which belongs to them, like the passports, id, and documents. In rendering unto Ceasar what is his, pay the tribute they require lest we offend them {Matt 17:24-27} and keep your passport and license updated lest we offend them because we have to walk in perfect peace with all men that the name of Alahayim be not blasphemed. {Heb 12:14}. Remember Yache used Paul's Roman citizenship to deliver him from death at the hands of his accusers,{Acts 16:37-40;22:26-30} so the citizenship can serve a purpose at Ahayah's appointed times. Even the Israelites of old time had to serve their enemies until the time appointed for them to be delivered in Babylon. {Jeremiah 27:6-17} Now dearly beloved understand and be diligent, The people, though in captivity, did not serve the idols of the gentiles, as Daniel [book of Bel and the Dragon] and the 3 Men(Azariah, Mishael, Hananiah) [ Dan 1:7;3:12-30; The Song of the 3 Children] of those days are examples of how in the face of death they would not worship the idols or partake in the feasts of the gentiles. Be admonished that we do the same thing. Living under the yoke of the gentiles does not mean we partake in their idol worship, for the things they sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils {I Corr 10:19-20} ye cannot drink the cup of Adono Yache and the cup of devils. Also do not live according to their lawlessness, just as the Apostle Paul would not live without law unto Alahayim though among the nations. {I Cor 9:21} You have other examples of not partaking in idol worship and festivals in people like Daniel the prophet as well who would not eat of the kings sacrifices {Dan 1:5-19}, nor would Esther eat the sacrifices though she was queen in Persia {Add. to Esther 14:17-18}  nor would Judith eat the offerings of the Unbelievers saying "I will not eat thereof, lest there be an offense" {Judith 12:1-4}...So you see we must indeed have passports, license, and money to function in this society even as Peter had to pay the tribute for him and Yache lest they offended the Romans in Matt 17:24-27, but we do not transgress the law to operate in their lawlessness, feasts days, or other idol worship. This in no wise means that it is lawful for us to keep our own personal pictures, which are not required by the government for us to have. Pictures of family, friends, and living creatures are not lawful since one is collecting them for one's own pleasure and memories as the Egyptians kept pictures of their firstborn for memories on their walls. 

 

  • It was a part of our curses and iniquity to draw pictures according to the records. 

Assumption of Moses 2:8-9

[8]And they shall sacrifice their sons to strange alahayims, and they shall set up idols in the sanctuary, to worship them.

[9] And in the house of Ahayah they shall work impiety and engrave every form of beast even many abominations. 

Understanding the Graven Images in the Temple of Solomon

Concerning the graven images of the bulls and lions in the Temple of Solomon, Here is the revelations of Ahayah.

  • The Zidonians aka Tyrians, which are Canaanites, known as Phoenicians in world history, are the ones who made the bulls and lions in Solomon's temple. It was two men of Tyre; one named Hiram whose mother was of the tribe of Naphtali and Huram, whose mother was of the tribe of Dan, that made the bulls and lions. There are multiple people named Hiram and Huram in the scriptures so please look at the following precepts so that there is no confusion about who made the bulls and lions in the temple:

  1. Hiram king of Tyre [I kings 5:8-10] who sent the materials for the building. He is also called Huram the king [II Chron 2:3] and sent a man named Huram to do the work for Solomon [II chron 2:3-14]

  2. Huram, his father was of Tyre (Canaanite) and his mother was of the tribe of Dan. He was the man who king Hiram(Huram) sent because he was cunning and endued with understanding in many types of work. [II Chron 2:13-14] He helped in the work to make the bulls and lions too. [II Chron 4:11-15]

  3. Hiram, his father was of Tyre (Canaanite) and his mother was of Naphtatli. He is a worker in all brass who Solomon fetched out of Tyre. [I Kings 7:13-14] He is the Hiram that made the bulls and lions.[I kings 7:29-50]

 

  • It was against the law and should not have been put in the temple. Ahayah suffered it to be so as a testimony against the Israelites, for we are the inner courts (Rev.11:1-2) and for the gentiles of the outer court (Eze 14:7). The idols inside the temple symbolizes the idols in our hearts (Jer 9:26)(Eze 11:21) and the temple being destroyed symbolizes the wrath that shall come upon those that separate themselves from Ahayah to serve their idols.

Ezekiel 14:1-8
1 Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me.
2 And the word of Ahayah came unto me, saying,
3 Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them?
4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Adono Ahayah; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I Ahayah will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;
5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.
6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Adonoye Ahayah; Repent, and turn {yourselves} from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.
7 For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I Ahayah will answer him by myself:
8 And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my people; and ye shall know that I {am} Ahayah.

 

  • Ahayah had mercy upon us, winking at ignorance so we should amend and stop sinning. Now today we are not ignorant of his law and ought not to follow in the steps of error, knowing that the true temple is within us (1 cor 3:16) and we are to be living sacrifices (Rom 12:1-2). The true temple is being built and we must be found faithful in all things to partake in it by having our hearts purified by faith, both Jew and Gentile. (acts 15:7-9) Now may one understand the words of Yache, when it was said that he will destroy this temple and make another without hands. [Mrk 14:58] He was referring to building the true temple, which is the Church.[II Esdras 13:36]

1 Kings 7:13-14

13  And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre.

14  He was a widow's son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work.

1 Kings 7:29,36,40,45-50

29  And on the borders that were between the ledges were lions, oxen, and cherubims: and upon the ledges there was a base above: and beneath the lions and oxen were certain additions made of thin work.

1 Kings 7:36

36  For on the plates of the ledges thereof, and on the borders thereof, he graved cherubims, lions, and palm trees, according to the proportion of every one, and additions round about.

40  And Hiram made the lavers, and the shovels, and the basons. So Hiram made an end of doing all the work that he made king Solomon for the house of Ahayah: 

1 Kings 7:44

44  And one sea, and twelve oxen under the sea;

1 Kings 7:45-46

45  And the pots, and the shovels, and the basons: and all these vessels, which Hiram made to king Solomon for the house of Ahayah, were of bright brass.

46  In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zarthan.

  • Solomon should not have allowed Hiram nor Huram to make those graven images, yet we understand why Ahayah suffered them to do it, because it wasn't his true temple. The temple was left for a testimony against us because the temple with idols was destroyed by the Babylonians as a token that the man of an idolatrous heart shall also be destroyed. Make no marvel that it was the Babylonians that destroyed the temple made with hands. It is merely a similitude of what shall come to pass in these end times because the Daughter of Babylon,[Psalms 137:7-8] which is Edom [Jasher 90:28-31] in the guise of Rome,[Jasher 10:16] shall destroy the temple made with hands, even as they did in 70 AD [Luke 21:20-24] and shall do again here in the end of the world [Dan 8:9-12,23-25] when they cause the oblations and sacrifices to cease [Dan 2:11] by destroying the wicked of the children of Israel [Lam 4:1-2;Add of Esther 14:9;Rev 11:3,7-8] On the other hand, the temple made without hands, which is the holy temple of the heart [Barnabas 6:15] purified by the blood of Christ [Heb 9:14] and sanctification of the Holy Spirit,[Rom 3:28-30;5:5;15:16] shall be built up with the remnant of Israel [Rev 7:4,10;14;1-4] and the gentiles [Rev 7:9-10] that are called. [Amos 9:11-12]

  • Solomon had the vessels made for the house of Ahayah, but he should not have allowed the men to make the graven images.

1 Kings 7:48-51

48  And Solomon made all the vessels that pertained unto the house of Ahayah: the altar of gold, and the table of gold, whereupon the shewbread was,

49  And the candlesticks of pure gold, five on the right side, and five on the left, before the oracle, with the flowers, and the lamps, and the tongs of gold,

50  And the bowls, and the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers of pure gold; and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the most holy place, and for the doors of the house, to wit, of the temple.

51  So was ended all the work that king Solomon made for the house of  Ahayah. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated; even the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, did he put among the treasures of the house of Ahayah.

  • Solomon did error as well in making lions in his own house.

1 Kings 9:10

10  And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, when Solomon had built the two houses, the house of Ahayah, and the king's house,

1 Kings 10:17-20

17  And he made three hundred shields of beaten gold; three pound of gold went to one shield: and the king put them in the house of the forest of Lebanon.

18  Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with the best gold.

19  The throne had six steps, and the top of the throne was round behind: and there were stays on either side on the place of the seat, and two lions stood beside the stays.

20  And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps: there was not the like made in any kingdom.

  • Solomon was an ensign, that not by a multitude of wisdom and knowledge were Yache's people going to be delivered, [Sirach 19:24] but by obedience in obeying His voice. [Jer 9:23-24] And how trusting in head knowledge will not save us, [Rom 1:22] [Cor 1:19,25-27;8:1;13:8] for David had not a plethora of knowledge, but an obedient heart and walked in simplicity and guilelessness and was merciful. [I Sam 13;14; I Macc 2:57; I kings 11:4] Praise Ahayah that Solomon received the seal through repentance [Testament of Solomon] by confessing his faults, that he may receive mercy [James 5:15-16] which was promised to his father David, that Ahayah's mercy would not depart from him.[2 Sam 7:15]

  • Ahayah winked at the ignorance, but we are by no means are justified to do the same errors today.

Wisdom of Solomon 11:23

But thou hast mercy upon all; for thou canst do all things, and winkest at the sins of men, because they should amend.

 

  • We are aware of the laws now so to make or continue with unlawful images would be presumptuous sin, which there is no sacrifice for. 

Heb 10:26

[26] For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.

  •  The righteous understood pictures of living creatures were against the law as a confirmation for us to know it is indeed against the law. 

4 macc 17:7

[7] And had it been lawful for us to paint, as might some artist, the tale of thy piety, would not the spectators have shuddered at the mother of seven sons suffering for righteousness' sake multitudinous tortures even unto death?

Acts 17:29

[29]Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of Alahayim, we ought not to think that the ALAHAYIM is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. (Ahayah was purposeful to make sure there was no similitude of his figure to guard us from being tempted to draw images of him, but the world has been corrupted and drawn images of all his creation in an attempt to please their idols and transgress his law.)

Romans 1:23

23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible Alahayim into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Wisdom of Solomon 13:1-10,13-15
[1]Surely vain are all men by nature, who are ignorant of Alahayim, and could not out of the good things that are seen know him that is: neither by considering the works did they acknowledge the workmaster;
[2]But deemed either fire, or wind, or the swift air, or
the circle of the stars, or the violent water, or the lights of heaven, to be the alahayim's which govern the world.
[3]With whose beauty if they being delighted took them to be alahayim's; let them know how much better the Adono of them is: for the first author of beauty hath created them.
[4]But if they were astonished at their power and virtue, let them understand by them, how much mightier he is that made them.
[5]For by the greatness and beauty of the creatures proportionably the maker of them is seen.
[6]But yet for this they are the less to be blamed: for they peradventure err, seeking Alahayim, and desirous  find him.
[7]For being conversant in his works they search him diligently, and believe their sight: because the things are beautiful that are seen.
[8]Howbeit neither are they to be pardoned.
(though they were trying to  find Ahayah and erred, they still will not be pardoned for their iniquity, so ignorance is no excuse.)

[9]For if they were able to know so much, that they could aim at the world; how did they not sooner find out the Lord thereof? (This shows we have the cognitive ability to know so much worldly wisdom, how then did we not learn of Ahayah? This is why we are not to be pardoned, because he gave us the the mental ability to find him, yet we didn't apply it, even though his creation attest of his existence every day to us.)
[10]But miserable are they, and in dead things is their hope, who call them alahayim's, which are the works of men's hands, gold and silver, to shew art in, and resemblances of beasts, or a stone good for nothing, the work of an ancient hand(This is showing they were making pictures from the ancients, but it is key to notice also the scripture said "a stone good for nothing, the work of an ancient hand"..this gives us understanding that worship of that stone in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, is idol worship and it is a transgression of the law in {Lev 26:1}, so we know that is not the true religion of Ahayah Alahayim. Along with the Catholic religion and its subdivisions, with their relic and image worship, are all religions of error.)
[13]And taking the very refuse among those which served to no use, being a crooked piece of wood, and full of knots, hath carved it diligently, when he had nothing else to do, and formed it by the skill of his understanding, and fashioned it to the image of a man;
[14]Or made it like some vile beast, laying it over with vermilion, and with paint colouring it red, and covering every spot therein;
[15]And when he had made a convenient room for it,
set it in a wall, and made it fast with iron: (its describing how after one has made the picture or image they nail up upon a wall. As one can see picture making is ancient idolatry.)

Understanding the Graven Images of Modern World Religions

  • Concerning the Stone worship of Mohamed and his followers, along with the worship of Mohamed, all the world forms of Roman influenced Christianity, what is called Judiasm today, and all the religions of the word; these are all definitely in idolatry, and it was prophesied that men would go astray to these types of things of ancient times, so make no marvel that it has and is coming to pass. 

Leviticus 26:1

1  Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am Ahayah your Alahayim.

Habukkuk 2:18-19

18  What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols?

19  Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.

Enoch 99:6-8

And again I swear to you, ye sinners, that sin is prepared for a day of unceasing bloodshed. And they who worship stones, and grave images of gold and silver and wood and stone and clay, and those who worship impure spirits and demons, and all kinds of idols not according to knowledge, shall get no manner of help from them. 

 

The Kaaba stone is indeed an idol, and the religion of Mohamed, is from the spirits of Satan, by evidence that the practices of the religion is not according to the knowledge of Alahayim. Satan is who led the sons of men to idol worship before the flood, after the flood, and is still doing it now. All the religion of the modern world are of satan by evidence of the transgression of the laws. One has to keep the law to discern true religion {John 7:17, Isaiah 8:20}

Understanding the origin of making idols and pictures of living creatures 

  • Concerning all graven images, pictures, molten images, according to the law and testimony they are all brought about by the devising of evil spirits and have evil spirits dwelling in them. The evil Spirits are the children of the fallen angels.

Enoch 15:8-12

[8] And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling.

[9] evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called.

[10] As for the spirits of heaven in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth on the earth shall be their dwelling.

[11] And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offenses.

[12] And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.

  • The evil spirits were attacking the sons of Noah.

Jubilees 10:1 

[1] And in the third week of this jubilee the unclean demons began to lead astray the children of the sons of Noah, and to make to err and destroy them.

  • The evil spirits are under the power of Mastema and he uses them to cause mankind to make graven images and paintings/pictures(simulacra).

Jubilees 11:3-4

[3]3And Ur, the son of Kesed, built the city of Ur, of the Chaldees, and called its name after his own name and the name of his father. And they made for themselves molten images, and they worshiped each the idol, the molten image which they had made for themselves, and they began to make graven images and unclean simulacra, an malignant spirits assisted and seduced them into committing transgressions and uncleanness. 

Definition:

simulacra: an image or representation of someone or something; the word was first recorded in the english language in the late 16th century, used to describe a representation, such as a statue or a painting especially of an alahayim.

[4] And the prince Mastema exerted himself to do all this, and he sent forth other spirits, those which were put under his hand, to do all manner of wrong and sin, and all manner of transgression, to corrupt and destroy, and to shed blood upon the earth. 

Wisdom of Solomon 14:27 

For the worshiping of idols not to be named is the beginning, the cause, and the end of all evil.

 

  • The evil spirits dwell within the graven images and pictures hence those who make the images and pictures are being led by evil spirits to create a dwelling place for the evil spirits.

Acts of Thomas 77

[77] And when the devil said these things and even more, the apostle said; Yache commands you and your son through me not to enter anymore into the habitation of man: but go now and depart and dwell far apart from the territory of men. And the devils said to him: you have punished us harshly with your commandment: but what are you going to do about the others that are hidden from you? These people of India have created all types of images, rejoice in them far more than what you do: Many of these people do mostly worship and perform their own will, sacrificing to these images and bringing them gifts of food, by libations and by wine, water and offering with oblations. Them too shall now be stopped doing their works. and suddenly the devils vanished.

  • We see through scriptures that the creation of the images are habitations of demons. Also, the evil spirits who came from the giants that perished in the flood and those evil spirits who dwell in idols, molten images, and pictures have a punishment awaiting them. They also dwell in objects of love  (objects of showing your affection toward one another).  The evil spirits also dwell in stones like the Kaaba in Mecca. The evil spirits dwell in the hills as well, where people go up on high hills to worship them, like the Buddhist in the mountains and across Africa where people go sacrifice to spirits on top of the hills. The evil spirits are also on the way side where witches go off into the woods to worship them as well. All these things are confirmed in the Hebrew records. It is attested in the Apocalypse of Peter of how evil spirits are in all these things. 

Apocalypse of Peter 6

...Spirits of graven images punished.
Uriel, the angel of Alahayim, shall bring forth the souls of those sinners who perished in the flood,
and of all that dwelt in all idols, in every molten image, in every (object of) love, and in pictures, and of those that dwelt on all hills and in stones and by the wayside, whom men called alahayims: in everlasting fire; and after that all of them with their dwelling places are destroyed, they shall be punished eternally.

  • Know for a surety that anyone who partakes in graven images, idols, pictures of living creatures shall have their part in the lake of fire with the spirit(s) that is inhabiting the graven image, molten image, idol, picture or stones. 

Understanding Toys, Images,  and figures that are Graven Images

  • Concerning toys and figures that are the similitude of living creatures of any kind, they are graven images and methods of sorcery and witchcraft. It is not lawful to have them or give them to anyone else. 

Jasher 61:8-11

[8.] And amongst the servants of Angeas was a youth of fifteen years old, Balaam son of Beor was his name, and the youth was very wise and understood the art of witchcraft.

[9.]And Angeas said unto Balaam, conjure for us, I pray thee, with the witchcraft, that we may know who will prevail in this battle to which we are now proceeding.

[10.] And Balaam ordered that they should bring him wax, and he made thereof the likeness of chariots and horsemen representing the army of Angeas and the army of Egypt; and he put them in the cunningly prepared waters that he had for that purpose, and he took in his hand the boughs of myrtle trees, and he exercised his cunning, and he joined them over the water, and there appeared unto him in the water the images resembling the hosts of Angeas falling before the images resembling the Egyptians and the sons of Jacob.

[11] And Balaam told this thing to Angeas and Angeas despaired and did not arm himself to go down to Egypt to wage battle, and he remained in his city.

 

  • Now one can understand why there are no images of the ancient Hebrews except among the heathen like the Assyrian and Egyptian artifacts because it was against the law of the Hebrews to do so.

 

 

Understanding the images of the hosts of heaven

  • Now concerning images of the Sun, Moon, and stars of heaven.

Romans 15:4
[4]For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and
comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
(What transpired in the past is for our learning and guidance in the present.)

1 Corinthians 10:7,11
[7]Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and
rose up to play.
(we know the people were worshiping the golden calf, but they were also worshiping other things as well in the wilderness.)
[11]Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.
(When we see what they worshipped it is for our admonition to avoid it.)
Acts 7:42-43
[42]Then Alahayim turned, and
gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the
prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years
in the wilderness?
(The Unbelivers were worshiping the idols of the heathen the whole time they were in the wilderness. The question that is asked shows they weren't offering sacrifices to Ahayah.)
[43]Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your alahayim Remphan,G4481 figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon. (These idols were who the Israelite's were secretly worshipping. Moloch was the idol of the Moabites, and Rephan is the Idol of the Egyptians, which is exemplified by a star. As we look deeper into this matter we shall get understanding of where the Egyptians got this Star idol from.)

Definition:

G4481 by incorrect transliteration for a word of Hebrew origin (H3594); Remphan (i.e. Kijun), an Egyptian idol:— Remphan.

 

  • Now we can look at the old testament to get a better understanding of the star that was used for worship.

Amos 5:26

But ye have borne the tabernacle H5522 of your Moloch and Chiun H3594 your images H6754, the star H3556 of your alahayim, which ye made to yourselves.

 

Definition:
H5522 סכּוּת :Original
BDB Definition: Sikkuth =
" tent" a Babylonian deity (TWOT) Tabernacle

Strong's Definition: Feminine of H5519; an (idolatrous) booth: -tabernacle

 

H3594 כּיּוּן :Original
BDB Definition: Chiun = 
" an image" or " pillar" probably a statue of the Assyrian-Babylonian deity of the planet Saturn and used to symbolise Israelite apostasy
Strong's Definition: From H3559; properly a statue, that is, idol; but used (by euphemism) for some heathen
deity (perhaps corresponding to Priapus or Baal-peor):
- Chiun.

(Keep in mind, this ,Chiun, is the same Kijun that Rephan, the Egyptian idol originates from. The definition of Chiun H3594, helps us understand that it all originates from the Assyrians and Babylonians worship of the planet Saturn. Saturn is named after the Roman deity Saturnus, the deity of agriculture and harvest who is equivalent to the Greek Kronos. Planets H4205 according to scriptures are zodiacal signs/constellations in 2 Kings 23:5. The people were worshiping stars of other alahayims and the demon whom was being worshipped as the Greek Kronos was revealed to Solomon, so that we may understand the zodiacs and worship of stars is idolatry. )

Testament of Solomon 64 

  1. And there came before my face another spirit, as it were a woman in the form she had. But on her

shoulders she had two other heads with hands. And I asked her, and said: "Tell me, who art thou?" And she

said to me: "I am Enêpsigos, who also have a myriad names." And I said her: "By what angel art thou

frustrated?" But she said to me: "What seekest, what askest thou? I undergo changes, like the Alahayimess I am

called. And I change again, and pass into possession of another shape. And be not desirous therefore to

know all that concerns me. But since thou art before me for this much, hearken. I have my abode in the

moon, and for that reason I possess three forms. At times I am magically [1] invoked by the wise as

Kronos.

 

  • Through the scripture, one can understand how this demon is worshipped as Chiun by the Assyrian-Babylonians, Saturnus by the Romans, Saturn by the English, and Kronos by the Greeks because she has a myriad of names.  {G4107}. Through definitions of Chiun, we see that the Star figure that was made by the Israelite's, which they learned from the Egyptians, was actually the ancient worship of demons. Star worship is a transgression for the believers.

  • The 5, 6, and 8 pointed stars, among many other images, are demonic symbols used for the worship
    of Satan, demons, and evil spirits. The pointed stars are not images of the stars. One has to be very diligent of the things one allows into one's home. 
    The actual luminaries of heaven are circular according to the scriptures: The sun and moon in Enoch 77:3 and the stars in II Baruch 47:9 and Wisdom of Solomon 13:2. So it is of a surety these pointed stars are for demonic use, seeing as though the actual stars are not even described as pointed in the scriptures. The 5 pointed star is the Goat head of Satan and the 6 pointed star is the hexagon of the 666 number of Satan according to Revelations 13:18.We are commamded to abstain from all appearance of evil so we do not make the pointed stars to keeep ourselves from evil.

 1Th 5:22  

Abstain from all appearance of evil. 

  • We were also commanded not to worship the luminaries.

Deuteronomy 4:15-16,19

[15]Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the
Ahayah spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:
[16]Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male
or female,
[19]And
lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars,
even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them,
which the Ahayah thy Alahayim hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

• Though commanded not to do so, the unbelievers also worshipped the planets. Planets are defined as constelllations and Zodiacs in scriptures because they are actually stars not habitable places like earth. Men worship the Zodiacs of old time and we are not to do so. 
2 Kings 23:5
[5]And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the
high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense
unto Baal,
to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.
Definition: 

H4208
מַזָּלָה
mazzâlâh
maz-zaw-law'
Apparently from H5140 in the sense of raining; a constellation, that is, Zodiacal sign (perhaps as affecting the weather): - planet.

  • The worship of the lights of heaven have been around among the Arabs from the days of Job as well.

Job 31:26-28
[26]If I beheld the sun when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness;
[27]And my heart hath been secretly enticed, or my mouth hath kissed my hand:
[28]This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge: for I should have denied the Alahayim that is above.

 

  • Job, the gentile, was from the middle East, and it was a custom of the middle easterners to worship the hosts of heaven and kiss their hands, hence one can still find the kissing of the hands done by the Mohamedians to this day along with the crescent moon as their symbol. The worship of the sun is also found in many religions including Catholicism/Roman paganized Christianity and all its offshoots and subgroups. One can find halos over their graven images of people for example, which are Sun-discs. One can even identify their sun worship by their day of the sun on the 1st day of the week in homage to the Sun. 

 

  • It is unlawful for us to make images of the uminaries of of heaven, but the worship of them is unlawful.

 

Understanding the Images of Luminaries of Heaven used for Sin


Jubilees 8:3-4
[3]And he found a writing which former (generations) had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon,
and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it contained the teaching of the Watchers in accordance
with which they used to observe the omens of the sun and moon and stars in all the signs of heaven.

[4]And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he
should be angry with him on account of it.


• The hosts of heaven were not to be worshiped,

• The stars were made for worship, while others literally worshiped the real thing.
Zephaniah 1:5
[5]And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by Ahayah, and that swear by Malcham; (Malcham is another name for the same Moloch from Amos 5:26.)

Understanding the images of the Luminaries of heaven for casual usage.


Jubilees 12:16-19
[16]And in the sixth week, in the fifth year thereof, Abram sat up throughout the night on the new moon
of the seventh month to observe the stars from the evening to the morning, in order to see what would be
the character of the year with regard to the rains, and he was alone as he sat and observed.
[17]And a word came into his heart and he said: All the signs of the stars, and the signs of the moon and of
the sun are all in the hand of the Adono. Why do I search (them) out?
[18]If He desires, He causes it to rain, morning and evening; And if He desires, He withholds it, And all
things are in his hand.'
[19]And he prayed that night and said, 
'My Alahayim, Alahayim Most High, Thou alone art my Alahayim, And Thee and Thy dominion have I chosen. And Thou hast created all things, And all things that are the work of thy hands.
 

Jasher 53:18-21
[18]And he ordered them to bring before him his map of the stars, whereby Joseph knew all the times, and
Joseph said unto Benjamin, I have heard that the Hebrews are acquainted with all wisdom, dost thou
know anything of this?
[19]And Benjamin said, Thy servant is knowing also in all the wisdom which my father taught me, and Joseph

said unto Benjamin, Look now at this instrument and understand where thy brother Joseph is in Egypt, who
you said went down to Egypt.
[20]And Benjamin beheld that instrument with the map of the stars of heaven, and he was wise and looked
therein to know where his brother was, and Benjamin divided the whole land of Egypt into four divisions,
and he found that he who was sitting upon the throne before him was his brother Joseph, and Benjamin
wondered greatly, and when Joseph saw that his brother Benjamin was so much astonished, he said
unto Benjamin, What hast thou seen, and why art thou astonished?
[21]And Benjamin said unto Joseph, I can see by this that Joseph my brother sitteth here with me upon the
throne, and Joseph said unto him, I am Joseph thy brother, reveal not this thing unto thy brethren; behold I
will send thee with them when they go away, and I will command them to be brought back again into the city,
and I will take thee away from them.






 

Understanding Lawful Pictures and Images

  • Now concerning pictures of non living creatures, it is lawful. We can make and have pictures of flowers, fruit and nature.

Pro 25:11

 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures H4906 of silver. 

  • In conclusion, pictures of lving creatures are unlawful to make due to the evil spirits that dwell in them. Also, statues, dolls, and toys of living creatures are  graven images. Lastly, pointed stars are demonic images and evil we must abstain from. 

Understanding Live Videos

Exodus 20:4
[4]
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,H6459 or any likeness H8544 of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Definition:
H8544
Original: תּמנה תּמוּנה
BDB Definition: form, image, likeness, representation, semblance
Strong's Definition: From H4327; something portioned (that is, fashioned) out, as a shape, that is, (indefinitely) phantom, or (specifically) embodiment, or (figuratively) manifestation (of favor): - image, likeness, similitude

Leviticus 26:1
[1]Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any
image H4906 of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am Ahayah your Alahayim.
Definition:

H4906
Original: משׂכּית
BDB Definition: show-piece, figure, imagination, image, idol, picture
Strong's Definition: From the same as H7906; a figure (carved on stone, the wall, or any object);figuratively imagination: - conceit, image (-ry), picture, X wish

Show-piece: something which attracts attention or admiration as an outstanding example of its type; Something that is seen as an excellent or outstanding example of something.
Images: semblance or likeness;
Pictures: a painting, portrait, or drawing

 

  • A video is not a "motion picture" like old days because it's not a series of pictures rolling together to make the effect of motion. Contrariwise, we literally are in motion, which makes our lessons videos and not motion pictures (images) like the old days of movies. It is not a transgressions of the law to make a video so long as no pictures of living creatures or graven images are within the video. 

 

  • Now concerning the second commandment, the law says "don't make graven images or the likeness of anything living like people, animals, creatures." 

Exodus 20:4
[4]Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, H6459 or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Definition:

H6459
Original: פּסל
BDB Definitionidol, image
Strong's Definition: From H6458; an idol: - carved (graven) image
 

  • The fact is that we have been commanded not to make "the likeness" of anything living. A video is a moving visual image in real time, not a graven image, nor the likeness of living creatures, but the actual live visual of the living creatures in motion, which can see, hear, speak, and are breathing in the live video, all of which ensure us according to the law that videos are not graven images or the likeness of living creatures, but are the live visuals of the living creatures themselves, not a similitude, phantom, semblance, but the real actually living creature.

  • The law does not forbid us from making videos. It forbids us from making likenesses of living creatures on surfaces, in pictures, paintings, statues, walls, etc or even within videos for that matter, but it does not forbid us from doing live videos since it is not "a likeness"' of us because its actually us live, breathing, speaking, hearing, rejoicing, and communing with you all, unlike a graven image or picture which cant speak, hear, or breath, etc. 

Understanding Cartoons, Anime and CGI movies

  • Cartoons, Animation, and CGI films are transgressions of the law to make when they contain the likenesses of living creatures. The process that is required to make these types of  movies cause transgressions of the law when they contain likenesses of living creatures because the creators are drawing or making frame by frame images to give the illusion of live motion when in truth the frame by frame pictures of living creatures are likenesses which we are commanded not to make.

Exodus 20:4[4]

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,H6459 or any likeness H8544 of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

  • The creators of cartoons have to draw the likeness of the living creatures, which is a transgression of the law. The creators of Anime mostly draw images frame by frame. The creators of CGI films have to literally make the 3D likeness of the living creatures to animate them, which is also a transgression of the law. The creators of these types of films are using these likenesses and pictures and giving life unto them by making multiple image frames to give the illusion of live motion when, in truth, the images are idols. When one creates a graven Image or likeness of a living creature, there is an evil spirit that causes one to do it [Jub 11:3] and when the image is created an evil spirit is hidden in the image [Acts of Thomas 77] and dwells in the idol or picture that is made. [Apocalypse of Peter 6].  

Jubilees 11:3-4

[3]3And Ur, the son of Kesed, built the city of Ur, of the Chaldees, and called its name after his own name and the name of his father. And they made for themselves molten images, and they worshiped each the idol, the molten image which they had made for themselves, and they began to make graven images and unclean simulacra, an malignant spirits assisted and seduced them into committing transgressions and uncleanness

Acts of Thomas 77

[77] And when the devil said these things and even more, the apostle said; Yache commands you and your son through me not to enter anymore into the habitation of man: but go now and depart and dwell far apart from the territory of men. And the devils said to him: you have punished us harshly with your commandment: but what are you going to do about the others that are hidden from you? These people of India have created all types of images, rejoice in them far more than what you do: Many of these people do mostly worship and perform their own will, sacrificing to these images and bringing them gifts of food, by libations and by wine, water and offering with oblations. Them too shall now be stopped doing their works. and suddenly the devils vanished.

Apocalypse of Peter Chapter 6
Uriel, the angel of Alahayim, shall bring forth the souls of those sinners who perished in the flood,
and of all that dwelt in all idols, in every molten image, in every (object of) love, and in pictures, and of those that dwelt on all hills and in stones and by the wayside, whom men called alahayims: they shall burn them with them in everlasting fire; and after that all of them with their dwelling places are destroyed, they shall be punished eternally.

  • These drawings, pictures, and/or 3D images have evil spirits that enter into them and they seek to attach themselves to those who watch the films. Hence children and adults get can addicted to watching these films or behaving like the characters because of the spirit's on the viewer. These films are forms of witchcraft when they make the likenesses and figures of living creatures to simulate real life according to scripture.

Jasher 61:8-11

[8.] And amongst the servants of Angeas was a youth of fifteen years old, Balaam son of Beor was his name, and the youth was very wise and understood the art of witchcraft.

[9.]And Angeas said unto Balaam, conjure for us, I pray thee, with the witchcraft, that we may know who will prevail in this battle to which we are now proceeding.

[10.] And Balaam ordered that they should bring him wax, and he made thereof the likeness of chariots and horsemen representing the army of Angeas and the army of Egypt; and he put them in the cunningly prepared waters that he had for that purpose, and he took in his hand the boughs of myrtle trees, and he exercised his cunning, and he joined them over the water, and there appeared unto him in the water the images resembling the hosts of Angeas falling before the images resembling the Egyptians and the sons of Jacob.

  • It is not a sin to see a CGI film or cartoon, but one must be mindful of the spiritual attack that it can bring upon your children especially who are young and easily influenced due to their innocence and lack of understanding.
