The study of the Bible in its historical context - with a focus on the archaeology, history, geography, customs , culture, and even the languages of the ancient Middle East. WE ask what did they understand THEN - the original intent of the Lord - so that we can expand and enrich our understanding NOW and thus become true disciples of Adonai Yeshua as in John 8:31-32.

This is the first time God, Yahvay, in His TORAH ( תּוֹרָה - TORAH - instruction not law) through the words of Jacob where the Lord tells us to get rid of the pagan gods. This focus of the Lord is found again and again in His Word. For instance the Lord tells Moses and all Israel that He is not coming to destroy Egypt and its people and the Pharaoh. NO! He says ...
"For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments--I am the LORD." (Exo 12:12)
He will execute judgments against the gods of Egypt. Later the Lord says that the gods the Hebrews took on in Egypt were not gods but שׁדים SHEDEEM H7700, 7736- wicked & destructive spirits that are called "demons" in Greek. We find this in Deuteronomy 32.
"They sacrificed to demons (שׁדים SHEDEEM H7700, 7736) who were not God, To gods whom they have not known, New gods who came lately, Whom your fathers did not dread." (Deu 32:17)
As one studies the Ten Commandments we read ...
Then God spoke all these words, saying, "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth." (Exo 20:1-4)
Over and over again the Lord speaks against the pagan gods, idols, pagan practices, and idolatry. Just like in the Ten Commandments we are to remember who God really is and then not to have any other gods before Him. But, there are NO other gods. The Bible is very clear on this.
"See now that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life. I have wounded and it is I who heal, And there is no one who can deliver from My hand." (Deu 32:39)
"Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it? And you are My witnesses. Is there any God besides Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none." (Isa 44:8)
"I am the LORD, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; ... " (Isa 45:5)
So all the pagan gods of Egypt, the Canaanites, Greece, and Rome are not gods by שׁדים SHEDEEM!! These are evil spiritual entities - not devils, not fallen angels, but SHEDEEM. God through Jacob is now telling us to put away the שׁדים SHEDEEM among us.
But have we? It seems that the USA has turned against God in a big way. Our "house" was a Christian house but it has been "cleaned out" of God, His Word, His Salvation, our Jesus. Jesus warns against this.
"Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation." (Mat 12:43-45)
The spiritual "house" of the USA is cleaned out. We've taken God out of our lives, our society, our government, our schools, and even many of our churches (few teach God's word our "bread of life") Thus, it seems clear that by THE VERY WORDS OF GOD that we should see THE RETURN OF THE GODS by Jesus' own words. And these "gods" seemingly have returned. They are not gods but the שׁדים SHEDEEM.
Check out the interviews with the Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn parts 1 and 2.
In these interviews Jonathan talks about this idea that the pagan gods have returned to America and it explains so much of the chaos, evil, death, hate, and destruction around us. שׁדים SHEDEEM has a Hebrew root word that means "destruction." Here's the links to these videos ...
More than this however is his commentary on the most popular movie of all time worldwide, "Barbie." This is no "child's movie;" it is an evil adult attempt to indoctrinate young girls to the anti God culture. It is a teaching tool for girls to reject womanhood, motherhood, and having children in Godly marriage. It is as if an ancient evil destructive goddess has returned, a SHEDEEM, and is symbolized in this doll called Barbie. It is as if Barbie is an idol of Ishtar whose picture is below.

So in God's TORAH we see over and over again the Lord's focus against pagan gods, idols and idolatry. But, there are no other gods. Yes. That is true. But not the שׁדים SHEDEEM that were behind the worship of all the pagan gods. God knows this is REAL and this REALITY is of the utmost danger to us.
