Baal and Asherah

Throughout the Old Testament, we see the Israelites succumb to the worship of both Baal and Asherah. They followed in the footsteps of the people that God drove out before them. Thousands of years later, in today’s society, are we doing the same thing? Have we fallen prey to this evil duo’s tricks, not even realizing that we are worshiping these ancient spirits? Join ArieRashelle as she dissects the Bible to find any similarities between the ancient practices of Baal worshipers and today’s culture in our video, Baal and Asherah.

Baal & Asherah

Baal and Asherah were two giant stumbling blocks for the people of Israel. All through the Old Testament, the people of Israel fell into Baal and Asherah worship, and it is no different for us today. We may not sacrifice our children on altars for everyone to see; instead, we sacrifice them behind closed doors at a doctor’s office and call it healthcare and freedom. Ever wonder why if you try to fight for the rights of the unborn, you are accused of ‘starting a war on women’?

America has fallen into the same traps that the people of Israel did thousands of years ago. Spirits never die; they just evolve with culture. We no longer call out to Baal as we slice our arms hoping he will respond; instead, we do it behind closed doors so that we can ease the pain. We’ve bought the lie that if we cut ourselves, we are numbing the pain. All we’re doing is causing ourselves more pain, both mental and physical.

Now What?

The only thing that can save us now is prayer and fasting. We have to break down the strongholds that hold our nation. We have to pull down the veil that these spirits have blinded our people with.

14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14

Seek the LORD, and He will forgive our sins and heal our land. Lift your children up in prayer daily. Pray a hedge of protection around you and your family. God is faithful, cry out to Him, and He will hear you. Seek Him, and you will find Him. Bring your petition before the LORD.
