We live in an age of constant distractions….. people are “multi-tasking”…. adults talking on the phone while driving…. kids playing video games in the classroom during lessons…. messaging numerous people on internet all at the same time…. thinking of other things while praying…. and the list goes on and on.
The art of concentration…. focusing ones mind on a single objective is probably only done by “specialised” practicioners (buddist monks, psychics, etc.)
Satan’s aim is to keep people busy 24/7 so they live their lives “on the surface”… without thinking too deeply about “life”…. or even death.
Entire lives are WASTED in “vanity” and a “grasping for the wind”…. (Ecclesiastes 1:14)… and another translation says, “It is all foolishness, chasing the wind”.
What then is wisdom ? (Proverbs 9:10)…. and how should we spend our days upon the earth ? (Ecclesiastes 12:13)… the “fear of the LORD” implies FAITH (…for he that cometh to GOD must BELIEVE that He is (exists)…. Hebrews 11:6)… and the commandments imply WORKS (some action) (John 14:15)
Only a life of FAITH which results in WORKS prepares man to meet God….. and JOB who was “the most perfect man” ACCORDING TO GOD’s OWN WORDS (Job 1:8) said (after God “interviewed” Him), “I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I ABHOR MYSELF, AND REPENT IN DUST AND ASHES.” (Job 42:5 – 6)
Now if Job (the most righteous man) could say that….. what do you think is going to happen to people like Rihanna, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Lady GaGa when they meet GOD ?
There is a lot of “speculation” on the internet over whether these people “worship the devil” ….. but I say to you that it DOES NOT MATTER one way or the other…. because they are serving him anyhow.
SIMPLY OBSERVE THEIR BEHAVIOR…. they are so DISGUSTING to even unchristian (but “morally”-minded) people… that they have been banned in China and elsewhere as a NEGATIVE influence on ANY “decent” culture….
Their extreme popularity shows:
1. How easily “misled” people are.
2. The popularity of degenerate behavior and their natural inclination for it.
3. The magnitude of their usefulness to Satan…. that by the behavior of “his few chosen ones”, the many may be influenced to decadence and sin.
I thought it was quite interesting that Rihanna chose to wear two horns on her head while “playing” at Cropover…. because whether she “worships” him or not, Satan has no difficulty getting her to do whatever he wants her to do…. the horns are quite significant…. where did she get the idea to wear them ? ….. I know where her “ideas” are coming from… and you should too.
…. and yet all the people of this world don’t give it “a second thought”… they are so busy “having fun” and “enjoying life” they dont even think about such things…
and this is the state of the world today……. so what do you think they are going to do when the LORD finally appears ?….. read Revelation 6:15 – 17… so shall it be for all those who have rejected God and His Christ.
Prayer for Today:
Loving Heavenly Father, Time is all we have and we are not using it wisely… please guide our lives that we may bear fruit for you… we cannot do this on our own…. in Jesus name we ask it… Amen.
