“Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to the person through whom the stumbling block comes!
We live in a world of profound sin. We qade through it every day. We are in deeper than we want to acknowledge or that we realize. The forces of darkness are cunning beyond words.
Ephesians 6:12-13 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm."
These words and those of Jesus earlier were at a time when the Roman Empire was gaining traction. Christians were becoming the enemy of the state.
In our day we are returning to the ways of the Roman Empire. Christian people are constantly coming under fire.
There are countless wolves in sheep's clothing in government, in politics, in the Church, in the workplace.
You can't even fathom the depths to which Satan is going in order to subvert the will of God in the lives of men and women.
Subliminal messages are throughout just about every single television program and every movie from rated G on up. What you might consider safe movies for children are actually programming them through their subtleties.
The early Church was warned to be on their guard. We live in a highly technical age whereas way more avenues exist to subvert the human mind than at any time since the Genesis Flood.
How are you doing in protecting yourself mind, soul and Spirit? Are you even trying?
My conviction of late is indeed praying Ephesians 6. I cannot get through any part of my day without the armor of God.
I can't trust me.
Until I am in a glorified body, separated from my sin nature, there is no rest. Scripture says we ENTER into rest when we leave this world.
We have been conditioned through schools and what we have watched to believe what we hear, or see. Scripture tells us what to see, to hear, to believe and it's not in television or movies.
Look at that woe from Jesus.
We have everyone from the early days of radio and television, from the early days of movies, who have sought ways to control people. Of how they can subvert people.
In today's world it is indeed about the information. What we see, what we hear, it's all about the information. People can't go even an hour without trying to find out what they missed in their online world. Why is that? Because it's become a drug.
Fear of not knowing. Fear of missing.
We have children being programmed at schools and from video games to be something they are not...and parents are not allowed to challenge it.
Woe from Jesus to those who cause these little ones to stumble.
What are you doing to fight for your mind?
What are you doing to fight in this Spiritual war we are in?
You must choose who it is you are going to listen to.
You must realize that prayer is your greatest ally and weapon.
Children are being murdered not just through abortions but through indoctrination into ungodly thinking.
I, like Paul, urge you to take prayer seriously. Take this battle to Heavens Throne. We need to stand firm in this world. We cannot do it alone.
