There are many abominable things, done purposely by some believers while in Church to provoke God.
God says to Ezekiel, "Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary?" Ezekiel 8:6.
Worse things are done at night, in the cover of darkness. He said, "Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth." Ezekiel 8:12
They do these things intentionally, knowing God will be provoked to leave them alone and that exactly what they want to achieve - to be left alone. God asked Ezekiel, "Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose" Ezekiel 8:17.
Abominations are atrocities, is to do wrong with purpose, and is true false prophets, they wilfully and intentionally push God, holiness, godliness and righteousness away from the Church.
Four abominable things that are deliberately done to provoke God;
The seat of the image of jealousy, idols. We know they provoke God but they are intentionally put in everyone’s eyes to see. Whoever does it know it angers God to see them. Ezekiel said the Spirit lifted me to see that curious arts are done in church.
2. Curious Arts
Servants of God are worshiping pictures; every man in the chambers of his imagery.
3. Fertility gods
"He took me to the entrance at the north gate of the Temple of GOD. I saw women sitting there, weeping for Tammuz, the Babylonian fertility god. He said, "Have you gotten an eyeful, son of man? You're going to see worse yet." Ezekiel 8:14-15
4. Strange religions
Many believers have their backs on God, but what is worse is they have turned to weird, strange and outrageous beliefs also. They are in church by day but in the cover of darkness "with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east" Ezekiel 8:16.
