In the latter days, there will be a noticeable rise in cults, the occult, false idols, false teachers and deceiving religions:
1 Timothy 4:1-2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.
Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Deuteronomy 4:16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
2 Peter 2, 1-2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

Latter Day Doctrines of Devils / False Religions: Priests temporarily remove Buddha’s soul from statue ahead of cleaning
Euronews. August 7, 2019.
The 15-metre-high statue at Todaiji temple in Japan is dusted off every year on August 7.
The cleaning process takes place ahead of the Bon Festival when people pay respects to their ancestors.
On Wednesday morning, holy men conducted a ceremony to temporarily remove the Buddha’s soul from the statue.
About 180 worshippers then climbed onto the statue to clean and polish it, using brooms and dusters.
Some were raised in baskets suspended from the ceiling of the hall that houses the statue so they could clean difficult-to-reach areas including its face and chest.
