Hi Guys, today I am going to bring you a word of encouragement, an exortation, and a word of warning.
I believe we can all agree the enemy of our soul is the Master of Deception, so suttle in his approach, that if we loose our focus, he will certainly take advantage of us playing us in his hands of deception and we don't even see it.
I also believe it is this type of tactic he uses to steal our joy and eventually peace.
It is kinda like the frog put in a pan of water and is confortable with being their and the pan is put on the burner and the burner turned on low and he begins to become comfortable with the warmer water as it so slowly becomes warmer and as it continues to get warmer it begins to steal its strength and brings confussion before he knows it, it boils him to death.
satan is in full force on fast forward, he knows the word and he knows his time is short, and he hates the saints of God with a pasSion.
He knowS we whom love and trust our Lord Jesus Christ, that he has placed hinmself to win a battle and he first must beat us down and cause us to doubt and fear and to take away our peace and joy and then our trust and cause us to question our faith.
He must take our minds from a sound mind in Jesus Christ one that thinks on that which is lovely and eternal, and begin to turn our thoughts and to put doubt there way before the battle ever begins, by using spirit filled believers as his prowns to begin to destroy the work of God within us and the Word.
He will many time use them to cause us to become Idol worshippers.
OK HERE WE GO!
You say how can satan use a believer to destroy God's work within the saint?
What I have witnessed in the last couple years is by persuading our minds ,taking our focus off of Christ and the word and inticing our minds daily to be on satan and his people he uses many times to help center us around all that is truely abominable to our Lord.
Many ways to do this is through Radio proclaimed Prophets who's aim is to watch and to look for everything they can find concerning the works of satan, helping to keep our minds full of every detail of the devils devices.
We see many in the body of Christ webb surfing every day for the latest evil, against the saints, and the latest prophets opinion, all the Woe's coming, from Obama being the antichrist, to the death camps to the alian invations, real thillers that gets our adrenilian going, ETC. ECT.
And as one begings to get caught up in all of this and begins to suft the webb for all their favorite webb prophets of warning, the enemy has beguns to win the battle before it has even statrted.
How you say.
Well he has us getting dependant on our favorate prophts of Woe! laying down our discernment and he has us actuelly addicted to hearing from them every day hours at a time on the internet and debating about all of this and praising this prophet and that prophet. and why?
Becuse this one has all the goods.
What we don't realize is this is adultry and we have taken our real focus off of Chrit and his kingdom and for hours a day we have put our focus on our favorite prophets of Woe! as we surf the webb and Links and Videos, and forums, and we have stolen from ourselves, have taken our time away from the word of God and our fellowship with him and have neglected the teacher within us the Holy Spirit.
Jeus came to set us free, the enemy of our soul has come to steal. kill and destroy.
How many daily warnings do we need this warning that warning, before the hours and hours and days and weeks begin to electrify us and addict us for more and more time on the webb and also in the so suttle way secretly begin to steal our Joy and peace.
See we don't see this, but all the debate and all the daily warnings and all the focus on all the evil, does secretely and so suttly begins to set our mind and eventually we can begin to lose our Joy.
Why you say?
Because the mind of Christ is not in us when we daily feed and digest so many hours and days and weeks and months we feed our mind on the woe"s of the devil, concentration camps, death camps, even the antichrist, One world Beast System, Ect.
OK, yes we do need to be aware of these things, and awake and alert. this is absolutely necessary, but to feed ourselves daily and for hours and week on end and surfing the webb and links and videos and Radio proclaimed prophets constantly. I would have to warn, Check Yourselves.
Where is Jesus in all of this addiction? All the hours spent. One has to ask who is getting most of our time? Who have we set our mind on the most?
This may not be for everyone, but I know the Lord has shown me it is for some, encluding myself.
Let us not forget our first love. our personal relationship being in the joy and peace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The harvest.
It is much more important in this day and hour to be lead by the Holy Spirit than by a radio prophet or any webb sight prophet.
Let not these become in the pattern such as the addiction of a soap opera.
And they do for many.
Anxious to get the next scoop of what the enemy is up to. Actually the pure Word of God gives us a very clear picture what the enemy is up too and will be up to and the Holy Spirit confirms it.
I am exorting us all towards a steadfact faith and unshakable faith one full of peace in our Lord Jesus Christ through a rich relationship in him and to be lead by the holy Spiit of God so in the day of touble we can praise him and stand firm.
Our focus and mind must be on Christ Jesus the substainer of our soul. looking at that which is eternal. In him alone we can stay in a constant state of readiness, no matter what should befall us.
I truely believe we need to read more seeking to know how Jesus the disciples/apostles responded to periouless times among them, that we be sure to teach what the word says concerning these things, that we too may hear welcome good and faithful servant.
Forinstance, Not one picked up a stone to kill their assailant, think about that one. The word does say, many will die for their testimony of Jesus Christ. A martyrs crown. I believe I would rather die this way than trying to shoot my assailant and then be shot to death myself.
He truely is out Joy, He truely is our Peace in times of trouble. He is our focus and makeing him known walking in the spirit armed in our armor being the salt of the earth directing others towards him.
