Idols are evil principal spirits. They are the rebellious sons of God. They are watchers and angels of darkness.

We have evil principal spirits embedded into our society that are working their agendas and sorcery to deceive even the elect.

From the beginning, everything begins with frequency – the voice.

The voice of the Creator said, “Light Be.”

Moses was sent to the children of Israel to set them free from Pharoah and the evil principal spirits of Egypt, with their strategically named Idols of worship. Israel (without any choice) developed in Egypt their voices of love to the inconsistencies of those evil principal spirits. The people spoke of their love unto the idols that represented the evil principal spirits.

So, God heard their groaning, and God remembered
His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
God saw the sons of Israel, and God took notice of them.

Exodus 2:24-25 (NASB)

But the Creator had to introduce Himself to Moses:

He said also, “I am the God of your father,
 the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.”
Then Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.

Exodus 3:6 (NASB)

Moses knew that when Yahovah spoke to him and commanded him to go back to Egypt and free the children of Jacob/Israel, there would be great confusion. Moses needed the Name of the voice that commanded him from that burning bush. The evil principal spirits are all gods (elohim), and they confused the society of Egypt along with the people of Israel with their egotistical arrogance.

Notice that the phrase “God of your father…” Four times, “the God of… is used. This is to extinguish the thought of any other god and to draw attention to the Name of Moses’ lineage with YHVH, the God of his father(s). This has within it a message for today’s Ekklesia – government of Christ – to witness the God Who is Christ in every proclamation and decree.

It is little wonder that:

The name YHVH is a strong tower,
the righteous runs into it and is safe.

Proverbs 18:10

The evil principal spirits are all gods. They are all in a severe identity crisis. They need human worship/lovers to call upon their names. That is what they do, and how they work is for that purpose.

In Egypt, through Moses, the children of Jacob/Israel learned the Name of the God (Elohim) that their fathers served. He is the Holy One – the Creator of all that exists.

Moses said to God, “When I come to the Israelites
and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’
and they ask me, ‘What is His name?’
What shall I say to them?”

And God said to Moses, “Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh.” {I am Who I am}
 He continued, “Thus shall you say to the Israelites,
‘YHVH sent me to you.’”

And God said further to Moses, “Thus shall you speak to the Israelites: YHVH, the Elohim of your fathers,
the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac,
and the Elohim of Jacob, has sent me to you.

This shall be My name forever,
this My appellation for all eternity.

Exodus 3:13-15 (Hebrew Scriptures)

Yet, in their confused state, they could not leave their idols of worship that they loved.

“But God turned away and delivered them up
to serve the host of heaven; as it is written in the book

Our fathers had the tabernacle of testimony
 in the wilderness, just as He who spoke to Moses
directed him to make it according
to the pattern which he had seen.”

Acts 7:42-44 (NASB)

The Ark of the Covenant with the shekinah glory in the middle of the camp, and they were so confused by the way the evil principal spirits strategically trained them that they still murdered babies and performed their immoral rituals in view of that Holy Tabernacle. They couldn’t break loose from the popular even though the Presence was manifested in their midst.

The principal of hiding His Name (The Name – HaShem) is due to the confusion of those evil principal spirits. If you know this Name and have it as your inheritance, and you use this Name for your evil vanities in life, you are as dumb as a rock.

“You shall not take the name of YHVH your Elohim in vain; for YHVH will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.”

(vain swearing as in oath)

Deuteronomy 5:11 (from Hebrew)

Notice that the phrase “YHVH your Elohim” clearly states the Name of the God you serve. Throughout the scriptures, you will find this phrase repeated. Most versions say, “the LORD your God,” which means that your God is YHVH and no other. You don’t say, “Molech, my god!” At least, not on purpose.

What most do not see in this phrase is that speaking His Holy Name and annunciating YHVH as your God (Elohim) breaks down the confusion of the idols that are set in society, and the believer is able to take a victorious stance over evil.

The Ekklesia can halt any love/worship of those idols and start commanding them to stand down.

HaShem (Hebrew: The Name)

The Name YHVH is not held secret and should not be covered up with the phrase “the LORD,” or any other concocted idea of legalistic religion.

Abraham connected with YHVH his God swearing to Him his allegiance fully.

“I have lifted up my hand to Yahovah – Elohim – Elyon,
the possessor of Heaven & earth.”

Genesis 13:22

The scriptures give many victorious, descriptive Names that show us His conquering abilities:

  • YHVH-Nissi is our banner of victory and our miracle-working authority from the great throne.
  • Elyon is God-Most High.

The list is innumerable. Each name is known to be a description of YHWH and His character and culture of love and freedom that He gives to those who dare to believe in His Name only, above every other god’s name.


YHVH {Yahovah}, Elohim {God}, Adonai, Elyon {God Most High}, Who is Jesus Christ (the name above names), does not control people and does not even control creation. He created all but has no desire to control it. He made it and called it good.

Evil gods, the principal spirits of evil manipulations upon the earth, have continually lied and built a façade that suggests their control, and they have infiltrated that scheme into the Christ-believers and weakened Christ’s authority by trying to make Him “in control.”

Evil takes strategic illegal-immoral advantages of creation, and God, along with Christ-believers, steps up and takes charge.

Control is bondage. Control makes people lazy-minded. Control is weakness, not strength.

The absolute wisdom of the Father Who separated His Son from Himself to appear on earth as fully man was the strategic blow to every evil spirit’s power and principal authority, including their false witness and identities. The historic battlefield of Golgotha drew the whole of heaven’s evil forces to watch the murder of the Real Son of God. In the midst of their gloating, the Lamb rose from the dead because the grave did not have the power to hold Him. The Real Son of God arose victorious and went back to the Father as ONE.

“Being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross. For this reason, also,
God highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him
the name, which is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow,
of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and that every tongue will confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:8-11


Historically, idols (unholy watchers) like their names to be known. We have now made their names so popular that we say their names over and over each day. We have every day of the week that we pronounce their names as if we are beholding to them: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday… etc.

Many of our months are demigods or gods. These gods (via Rome) have forced upon us the measurements of their time measurements, which are rebellious acts and do not agree with YHWH or the Holy Scriptures.


“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I come that they may have life (zoé) and have it abundantly.”

John 10:10

Hezekiah cleansed the temple and removed the idols of worship from Judah and “Then he (Hezekiah) said to them, ‘Listen to me, O Levites. Consecrate yourselves now, and consecrate the house of Yahovah, the Elohim of your fathers, and carry the uncleanness out from the holy place.’”

2 Chronicles 29:5

Josiah cleansed the House of YHVH and demolished the alters and idols that were worshipped and he reinstituted the Passover (Communion) for the protection of the homes of the peoples.


“Now in the eighteenth year of his reign, when he had purged the land and the house, he sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, and Maaseiah an official of the city, and Joah the son of Joahaz the recorder, to repair the house of Yahovah his Elohim.”

2 Chronicles 34:8

“There had not been celebrated a Passover like it in Israel since the days of Samuel the prophet; nor had any of the kings of Israel celebrated such a Passover as Josiah did with the priests, the Levites, all Judah and Israel who were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.”

2 Chronicles 35:18
