Praise the Lord Saints.
This week we will talk about what I believe is one of the biggest ploys used by Satan and his demons to keep us in this state of degeneration.
As I look and the local papers and the local news, its no wonder things are as they are today and there appears to be no concrete positive solution in sight.
Satan has masterfully, through the art of deception and deflection, drawn our attention away from the “at home,” “in your backyard” issues that plagued our people for centuries, and had us to look at global issues. Issues that we have no say so on other than our own skewed opinions based solely on what we are told and not factual evidence they can substantiate. It’s called the “sleight of hand” approach and if you are not careful, you will continue to be misled into believing the lie.
Although these global issues are sad and devastating in nature, they are rare occurring events. The issues we have far and away exceed these and carry far more destructive force and have been for some time.
Simply go back to last year, 5 years ago, 10 years ago, we will find neighborhood devastation in the form of justifiable police shootings, police themselves being killed by youths, riots, etc. We have a laundry list and that’s just speaking to the police violence issues.
What we are failing to realize is that it’s all connected.
Like it or not, agree or not, the Church has to be the foundational nucleus that will achieve the overall success we desire and need. It’s the only one of three, the family and community that contains all the answers and solutions to the complex web of deception that Satan has spun.
It must be in the order I placed it as well. Parents must then take on the responsibilities given to them by God to train, raise, chastise, discipline, protect, guide, lead, love, and nurture their kids.
They, the parents, learn these fundamental principles and traits from one place, the Church.
If your church is not teaching these foundational principles, either bring it to the pastor’s attention that you need and want these added to the Bible Study or Sunday School or find one that is. It’s not that hard to locate one, just look to the Church’s youth program and gauge it from there. Be mindful also that there should be more instruction and teaching than just programs. There is nothing wrong with the variety of programs in youth departments today but, you have to instill principles in our kids first, then programs will be the icing on the cake and a privilege earned from their actions and conduct outside the church environment.
Changing gears for a minute, if you didn’t see the fourth blood moon that occurred on Saturday evening you missed a very historic and prophetic event.
Research it because there are some upcoming events in the future that most aren’t aware of that will have you perplexed and feeling uneasy in a sense.
Watching Jewish shows on CTN reveals what they mean and what it means to the US for its participation in the connecting events.
Like never before we need to be in more prayer and fasting because it seems like the US is just in total defiance to God’s Word and don’t really believe His Wrath is still alive and swift.
Instead of looking to the hills we might need to be setting up camp until it’s over.
My jaw dropped when my wife and I were looking at one of our top 5 shows and saw what we believe to be an act that we never saw coming from this show. Its one thing to do what most shows are doing to boost ratings, but when you had just won an award for the show, besting all the other prime time shows, it didn’t add up. I was disappointed not only as a Christian, man of God, believer of God’s Word; it just didn’t fit and wasn’t needed.
Finally, if you have been attempting to go to my website, I apologize as I haven’t had the time to publish it but will be doing so soon. And if you missed any of my articles, I will be posting the link to each of them on the site.
Till next week,
