A Christian, really does need to keep his or her guard up. There are some sick messages out there, and they are every where. It is so sad, that more moral, or thoughts of integrity, are not available to see, view, and ponder on. But, it is a fight, I suppose between good and evil.
Evil. Yuk, just even writing the word can leave a bad taste. Spiritually, that is, because if you ponder on something, you are eating it. No, I remember what God says, even from the beginning. Do not eat from the tree of good and evil. It was a commandment, Adam and Eve broke. They should have gone to God, which we can still do, and pray, but symbolically, the message is the same. Do not sin. Don’t eat from the tree of evil, eat from that which is good. So how do we guard ourselves?
Well, we really do have to be in tune to what God says. His holy word, a word not corrupted. A King James word. We have to be in prayer, and we have to have our armor on. The armor of God.
There are many “subliminal” messages, that tell you its o.k. to sin. Its ok to talk to other spiritual entities, to believe in ghosts, to have sex, to be dishonest, they are every where! etc. etc.
You just have to know what is right and wrong in the sight of God.
Just yesterday, I saw one, at the movies, where they turned it into a cartoon, but it came straight from hell. Where a dark spirit, kept having to fight to make a point. And I thought a kid, a child, would be entertained with that. And as I looked in the audience, I was seeing adults take it all in. I just shook my head, and told my husband the subliminal messages of that sort comes to distort all that is good.
It really is sad. What is going to happen, that we may not even be able to turn on our televisions, or watch a movie, with some kind of filter, to quench those subliminal messages? I don’t know.
All I know is I am aware of them. And not everything goes. Part truth, part lies, do not bring innocence back. It does not make you feel that good warm, and fuzzy feeling. That sense of good. That sense of moral integrity.
Those kind of subliminal messages, say its o.k. to be bad. When I am looking for a good movie to watch. I either have to look for a very old movie, or one that has a good story line, without the implication of some kind of sin. I look just at the menu of what movies that are playing, and even in the titles, the subliminal messages are so bad, that you cannot help but see the goal in our society is to pervert. It almost seems like an agenda. Or a conspiracy. Pollute the minds of people. And maybe that thought is not too far from the truth, because I wonder where are the systems in place to keep people safe from some of this crap.
I really believe that if we take enough of this crap into our systems, we can sin. We can, pollute our own spirits.
I know, just by writing this, I am just tapping into the atrocity of this. But we need to have to see. We have to monitor our kids, and ourselves. There is so much filth out there, that it does pollute the way people view things. No longer, do we see wholesome shows, like I used to when I was a kid. Those that have a moral message, to be good, or to pray, or to seek God, when in trouble. When was the last time you saw some disaster movie, where they prayed. No, they do not. They may sing “row, row your boat”, to get their minds off of the danger, but its sad. (I won’t name that movie.)
Subliminal messages, should be good too. Try looking for them. And if you cannot find them, try being an example of a subliminal message that gives glory to God. That gives the example of moral, honesty, and integrity. If not for someone else to see. For yourself, to see as you repent. As you seek God. To live a clean life, an honest life, a life that has discernment to depart from evil, and that one that someone can say, that person really is a reflection of Christ, in all ways, including being a good example.
Just my thoughts, today, blessings and love,
No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candle stick, that they which come in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye, therefore when the thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. Luke 11:33-36.
Lord, my prayer, today is help me to know what your word says. Help me to know your heart. Help me, help my own heart to be pure, and to think good thoughts. Not evil. Not filthy. Not cold, or mean, or hateful thoughts. Help me to see the subliminal messages, so I can have discernment between good and evil. So I can depart from evil. Help me not to look at any vain thing, or anything that is perverted. So I do not accept these things. Lord, help our society. Help others, to see that we are what we eat. And that is spiritually as well. Lord, I repent. Because even last night, after watching some junk on television, for lack of anything else to watch, I felt cold in my spirit. I do repent. Forgive me, and help me to change my viewing habits, on television, or by what I read, or view. So I do not accept anything that offends you. And so I can grow.
In Jesus name. Amen
