Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
There is a movie out now which was sadly promoted on Valentine's Day supposedly about love but in fact it is a very 'dark' unedifying film. It made me think about darkness in general. Our world is definitely 'dark' but there is hope springing forth as we are not to give up to the darkness.
Our battle is not against flesh and blood but against Satan who would like to captivate and capture everyone he can. He can do it in subtle and not so subtle ways, Hollywood movies and television being one way. Making something evil legal is another method. Re-education of children in colleges and schools or through movies is also a way. The enemy is tricky. He hates the truth and there is no good in him.
The way to counteract the enemy is to beat him at his game. Pray for those who may be under his spell and resist the truth. Stay in the Bible. When you are tempted to feed your mind on stuff to get you 'informed' but instead become upset, get away and alone with God and read the Bible. Start in the book of John in the New Testament. Decide what is more important, the stress of being upset and angry or the truth in God's word
PRAYER: I need to resist the enemy and he will flee. I pray for an awakening not only in the United States but throughout the world to the truth in the Bible. Help me answer those who may oppose me in a gentle way. In Jesus' name. Amen.
