God's Order To Godly Kings -- Destroy Baal's Obelisks!
But you shall destroy their altars, dash in pieces their pillars (obelisks, images), and cut down their Asherim [symbols of the goddess Asherah].
YOU SHALL make for yourselves no idols nor shall you erect a graven image, pillar, or obelisk, nor shall you place any figured stone in your land to which or on which to bow down; for I am the Lord your God.
2 Kings 10:26
They brought out the pillars or obelisks of the house of Baal and burned them.
2 Chronicles 14:3
He took away the foreign altars and high places and broke down the idol pillars or obelisks and cut down the Asherim [symbols of the goddess Asherah]
2 Chronicles 31:1
NOW WHEN all this was finished, all Israel present there went out to the cities of Judah and broke in pieces the pillars or obelisks, cut down the Asherim, and threw down the high places [of idolatry] and the altars in all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the Israelites returned to their own cities, every man to his possession.
[Nebuchadrezzar] shall break also the images and obelisks of Heliopolis [called On or Beth-shemesh--house of the sun] in the land of Egypt, and the temples of the gods of Egypt shall he burn with fire.
With the hoofs of his horses [Nebuchadrezzar] will trample all your streets; he will slay your people with the sword and your strong pillars or obelisks will fall to the ground.
ISRAEL IS a luxuriant vine that puts forth its [material] fruit. According to the abundance of his fruit he has multiplied his altars [to idols]; according to the goodness and prosperity of their land they have made goodly pillars or obelisks [to false gods
Amplified Bible Commentary
Unfortunately, the King James translates each of these instances of the destruction of the obelisks as "pillars". Thus, readers have long read this destruction of "pillars" as being part of the construction of the pagan temples; however, the word really is obelisk! But, in America, we have allowed obelisks to be constructed all over our land. From the Washington Monument, to gravestones, to monuments in so many cities and towns from "sea to shining sea".
God is as offended over obelisks today as He was during the times of the Old Testament. Since George W. is admittedly a member of the satanic Skull & Bones, he knew the occultists worship the Egyptian Sun God, Ra, by "facing the obelisk". Therefore, were he really Born Again, were he really inhabited by the Holy Spirit, he would never have faced the obelisk.
In fact, a truly Born Again President would immediately take action to tear
down the Washington Monument simply because it is offensive to Almight God and
His Son, Jesus Christ!
