The Idols of Man Must Fall
by Apostle Eric vonAnderseck
In my new book, “The Apostolic Calling and Anointing”, God reveals that He is smiting with rebukes the traditions of man that worked their way into the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many ministers have born witness to God’s smiting this past year, and have come forward with public confessions stating that that they misrepresented God and misappropriated His grace.

Believers, for the past 40 years, have been asking over and over again, “What’s wrong with the church?” The inevitable answer is that the traditions of man have become the idols of the heart. Behind every problem in the church stands man-made doctrines and faith models selected from scripture that did not come from the anointing or heart of God.
These idols of the heart were hidden so deeply that no amount of apologetic digging could reveal them. It takes the hand of God to shake them lose, and that is what He is doing in this new book, “The Apostolic Calling and Anointing”. The Spirit of the Lord goes into the very heart of the wilderness church to reveal her sins and transgressions against Him, thus keeping in rhythm with the Spirit of the true prophets of old.
God confirms that the idols of man must fall in a dream shared by Apostle Stephanie Harris on February 15th: “Something like an earthquake happened. The ground and everything was shaking and there were terrible loud noises which led my attention outside. On the other shore of the lake there was a colossal bronze bust of a man (traditions of man) that broke and fell into the lake. I was not afraid and calmly said, ‘Yes, the idols of man must fall.’”
Putting all the Pieces Together
The idol falling into the water signifies that a cleansing must take place to purify the church of knowledge believers had accepted in the place of Christ. This purification is by the hand of God through His elect, sanctified steward whom He sent into the church.
5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
6 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them.
In January 2010 both Apostle David Tolmay and Chief Teacher Maria vonAnderseck received divine dreams concerning the apostolic stewardship emerging from the water upon the shoulders of Jesus (the government upon His shoulders; Isaiah 9:6). Prophet Jacqueline Vaaltyn shared a word of knowledge “emerge” in confirmation of God’s government.
God provided this symbolism for us in Moses, as it is written in Exodus 2:10, “And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.” The stewardship is drawn from the water to represent a separation and selection made by God.
The same day of these dreams I awoke drenched in water. Both I and the bed was completely soaked, and then a few minutes later, completely dry. This was a supernatural, physical confirmation of the emergence of the apostolic calling in the anointing of God, and that God had prepared the calling to cleanse and purify His people.
The image of the fallen bronze bust broken to pieces represents the collapse of the false church. We see in this a parallel to the image that Nebuchadnezzar saw, whose feet were broken in pieces by the mountain that struck it. God is doing the same thing today as He breaks in pieces the traditions of man.
As the Lord breaks to pieces the idols of the heart, the true church is emerging as was confirmed consistently by a volume of dreams and visions over the past years. Now shall arise as the spotless bride of Christ, cleansed, prepared without fault and without blemish as a chaste virgin, adorned for our Lord. For His two-edged sword both heals and delivers as He smites with rebukes just as He did two thousand years ago in regards to the church of Thyatira.
Cutting down the idols of man’s philosophy in the church is necessary in order for God to separate you unto Himself and to care for you in the refuge He has created for you in the restoration of the modern apostolic calling.
Watch for the release of my new book this month to understand the glorious transformation. The Lord is at hand.
