Today we continue our series on the ten commandments. We are on Commandments #2 (Ex 20:4) “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image” – In Commandment #1 we we’re told not to have and other God’s, so we can see that it’s not talking about who to worship but how.
In other word, who is the One True God, how is without an image of HIM. In Ex 25 instructions are given for images to be created for the mercy seat where God will meet with the children of Israel, but the images were not to be thought of as God, or in no way an aid to worship. And this was patterned after the heavenly Heb 8:1-5.
