The trace in Scripture that leads to the worship of the ‘image’ of the beast:
HCSB (Revelation 13:14-15) 14 … telling those who live on the earth to make an image of the beast who had the sword wound yet lived. 15 ….so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
In the previous article we talked about Islam, with Mohammed in the line of Ishmael, all information concerning the false prophet and Mount Sinai in Arabia.
Paul wrote that Jesus was with the Israelites during the Exodus:
NKJV (1 Corinthians 10: 1-4) 1 Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, 2 all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3 all ate the same spiritual food, 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.
According to Paul, it was Jesus who followed them and supported them. After their salvation, the Israelites had the manna, the bread that came from heaven and they drank from the rock at Horeb.
But they received spiritual food and spiritual drink through all the wonderful blessings that came to them, such as the protection, salvation, care and joy to belong to God’s people. Their faith was thereby strengthened in their God (YHWH), it was their spiritual food, or as Jesus once said:
NKJV (John 4:34) 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.
