“When a prophet makes a statement in the name of the Lord, if what he says does not take place and his words do not come true, then his word is not the word of the Lord: the words of the prophet were said in the pride of his heart, and you are to have no fear of him.” Deuteronomy 18:22 BBE
Remember all the social media videos and sites where people were predicting president Obama would be the last US president? They predicted he would have a third term and wouldn’t leave office, remember that? How wrong these people were. And many of them claimed to speak from the Lord. As stated in the scripture above they were speaking merely from the delusions of their minds and the pride of their hearts. The Lord had not spoken through any of them.
“Who can speak and have it happen if the Lord has not decreed it?” Lamentations 3:37 NIV
“It is God who alters the times and seasons, and he removes kings and promotes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.” Daniel 2:21 ISV
Though I believe there is some good content in alternative and mainstream media one must be very careful and stick to the truth. How can we do that? By studying, believing, and obeying the scriptures.
“Then Jesus said to the Jews who had faith in him, If you keep my word, then you are truly my disciples; And you will have knowledge of what is true, and that will make you free.” John 8:31-32 BBE
What a bold statement to some, but it’s a true one. Because Jesus is the truth (John 14:6) one can only get the truth from Him. In order to know what’s going on in the times we live in and how to respond properly a person must receive a revelation from Jesus Himself. Hence we need to study the scriptures; all of Jesus’ teachings, while there is still time. There is so much smoke and mirrors these days, so much fake news. Lies are told 24/7 through all forms of slanted media. If people only knew EVERYTHING they see going on today was written about thousands of years ago in advance in God’s word the Bible. The Devil does not want people to know the truth. He and his demons don’t want us to be set free. Hence Satan’s propaganda machine is in high gear misleading the masses to their destruction. By getting people to believe in what is fake and not real Satan is leading MANY to destruction.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:13-14 NIV
How are so many mislead on the broad road that leads to destruction? Through spreading false propaganda 24/7. By getting the masses to believe in lies of all kinds. By using every form of communication to spread these lies the Devil gets the job done. He’s so good at it that people even pay their hard earned money to be lied to regularly. Human actions come from what a person believes. Get a person to believe what is wrong is right, and you’ve successfully gotten them to behave wrongly. Satan’s got lots of experience at this. He’s been at it since the begining of time. He uses minions on a daily basis to further his cause. That’s why you and I must always be alert as to what we watch, listen to, read about, etcetera. If it goes against God’s word throw it away. If we’re not very careful we too will find ourselves under Satan’s mind control.
“We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19 NIV
“The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.” Revelation 12:9 NIV
Yes, there is a sinister plan to control your mind. There is a real life Boogeyman who’s out to get you. Only thing is he’s not hiding under your bed. He’s hiding in your main stream news media, in your movies, in your music, in your social media, in your books, etcetera. And before anyone starts saying I’ve been watching too much TV, the Holy scriptures that expose the Devil and his tactics were written thousands of years before movies were ever made. In fact I think many movie producers and writers owe God some royalties. Because it’s quite clear that many of their plots and ideas come right out of the Bible. Of course they add their own spin on it.
Brothers and sisters be very careful regarding what you watch, read, and listen to. Study the scriptures daily, not Satan’s propaganda.
