Are you being deceived? Do you know if you are?
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience (Those who are of the world, not of God). Therefore do not be partakers with them.
Ephesians 5:6-7 New King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
How many of you have had someone try to steal the Word from you or try to convince you that the Word wasn’t true or doesn’t work? Beware, they are thieves trying to kill, steal, and destroy you with their empty words. Beware of books and movies which go against the Word of God, even if they claim to be fiction, for example the Harry Potter series. They are there to deceive you, placed there by or through the devil or his advocates (anyone who will listen to him and do his bidding) slyly like a fox. Their sole purpose is to quietly eat away at your faith in God. They slowly but surely begin to wear you down if you pay heed to or give them place in your life. The devil comes only to to kill, steal, and destroy you. Remember God’s warning, because of these things the wrath of God comes on the sons of disobedience (those of the world not born again, who do not obey God’s Word) God sternly warns us to NOT be partakers with them. Either in the acts spoken of, or believing in what is said or portrayed. It is amazing how many people allow, even encourage their children to read Harry Potter, to play Pokeman, to partake of and enjoy Halloween! His wrath which will come upon the worldly will also be upon you if you do or allow this things in your life or family’s life! He loves His children, but He hates the sinful acts that people do. And while He loves His children He can NOT condone any of the sinful acts committed by them, they have NO place with Him.
Faithful Father, thank You for loving me so much. Thank You for sending Your Word to teach and to train me in Your ways. Thank You Father, that You made a way for me where there was no way, a way to walk clear of the things of this world. Thank You that You have given me Jesus to be the Way the Truth, and the Life to me and to this sinful, corrupt, and dying world if they would receive Him. Father, help us to have spiritual ears to hear and spiritual eyes to see and the God given wisdom to discern when the thief tries to come and steal from us and deceive us.
In Jesus name.
