It’s the truth, the sad truth. Satan blinds our eyes to the truths, but we also follow suit by blinding our own reality.
Satan laughs at our toiling, mocks at our wisdom and trembles when we pray.
The world is set up in such a way that the flesh is fed, and catered to on a daily basis. The spirit is mocked and taught to stand behind the curtain whilst the flesh takes credit for all the befalls us. But, in reality-it should be the opposite.
Because this is true, it’s literally the blind leading the blind.
Many in the world deny the flesh and kick it to the curb so they can live their sinful life, and I’m no different…I fail Jesus Christ each and every day.
How do we change this?
Let us remember that the greatest thing we can do for GOD is pray for man.
The world revolves around technology and the applications of it. Our phones exist alone but with applications, we can do so much more.
Our phones have taken over our lives. No joke.
The recent explosion of “Pokemon Go” is an example of this. It’s not an exaggeration to say that the new mobile and augmented reality game from Niantic Labs and The Pokemon Company is having an enormous impact in people’s daily routines. In fact, I’ve even witnessed “addictive” traits while watching people play it. I downloaded it, and didn’t even open it…I was told by The Holy Spirit to GET RID OF IT! So, I did.
You can’t deny it. Either you, or someone you know has downloaded the application. And although many don’t know it, it’s demonic in origin. It’s application development and concepts originate in the occult, and then apply it to one’s life and BOOM! You have it…productive sorcery.
It’s a HIT! Within three days of its release the game attracted more users than Twitter and now…it’s directing its aim at Snapchat and Google Maps. If you have a business that needs a “boost”, then you can actually have the PokeStops! And if that’s the case, prepare yourself for the influx of foot traffic and potential customers.
Pokemon is a game that teaches children to enter the world of witchcraft. How to cast spells. How to use psychic phenomena. How to put supernatural powers to work against their enemies. Oh yes…Pokemon World is a world of the demonic darkness. It’s satanic.
And to top it off? The Roman Catholic pope back in 2000, actually offered horrific advice when he said “the Pokemon game is full of inventive imagination, has no harmful moral side effects and is based on the notion of ‘intense friendship’.” Other published articles focused on other ‘satanic panic’ pop culture crazes too….such as the witch craze in programming.
But, don’t forget…Pokemon is not the only app for your phones…Satanic Wallpapers, Demon Simulator 3D, Voice Changer, Satan’s Zombies, White Magic Spells and Rituals, Satanic Summoning Simulator, J666 Calculator…etc.etc.etc.etc.etc….and so on and so on!
And you know what’s REALLY CRAZY?
GOD holds out HIS Golden Scepter and asks “what is your request”, but few answer! You see…the secret of ALL failures is our failure in secret prayer.
This may appear to be grossly exaggerated but it’s true. But people would rather take what Satan offers!
Matthew 21 (KJV)
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
Sadly, people would rather turn to the king of this world, Satan!
John 16 (KJV)
This is BEAUTIFUL! Most don’t totally understand it, either. Never before has Jesus Christ impressed upon us such a marvelous promise. It’s actually a COMMAND! It’s given to us six times, and six times over most either ignore it or don’t fully understand.
Jesus Christ impresses upon us that our STRENGTH and FRUITFULNESS depends on our prayers.
But, the devil convinces us that we don’t need prayer. He convinces man that we can do more with our own hands, our own efforts than by our prayers. In conversations with other men, we conceive and produce many physical things…but with GOD and our intercession with HIM, we can produce supernatural miracles.
Fellow laborers in HIS vineyard, we are to understand that our Creator desires that we pray and pray fervently.
Reasons to pray? Well, of course…I rarely try to pray and ask for anything. I only do this type of prayer when someone I know is in need or I am feeling stressed. No, I’m not saying it’s not right to ask for things…but we must remember there’s a whole prosperity revolution happening. It’s being taught by the church! Sad, so sad.
We must remember this is wrong. Why? GOD promises we will have what we need:
Matthew 6 (KJV)
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Of course, nothing is beyond the scope of the Will of GOD. But, we are told to be humble and meek. We are to ask for wisdom, and strength and have faith that GOD will give us the necessities of life. And then we have those who ask….well why are there starving people in the world? I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. And free will has so much to do with our past/present/future.
A man’s influence in the world is not gauged on his eloquence, zeal, status or orthodoxy..but by his prayers.
The world gauges one another by Satan’s standards, not GOD’S!
Satan’s plays Jekyll and Hyde with the world, he promises the world but drives you to hell.
I must admit when I see people at my place of employment begin to pray before their meal…it warms my heart! I love it. And I always comment on it too!
Praying should be our FAVORITE thing to do…not some game! Although it’s important to pray before your meal…it’s even more important to remember to pray ALL DAY LONG. When we don’t, we are essentially telling GOD that we don’t trust HIM, that we don’t have FAITH in HIM! APPLY IT TO YOUR LIFE.
BE A WARRIOR-A PRAYER WARRIOR
The Spirit of Supplication…did you know there was such a spirit? There is! It’s THE HOLY SPIRIT!!
The actual word ‘supplication’ is never utilized in The Bible, but…it denotes a cry or prayer that is vocalized.
How do you become a prayer warrior? You pray even when you don’t need to pray. You pray to worship GOD, to give HIM all your praise. You pray for thankfulness of a new day, for your health, your family…loved ones….for your blessings. You pray always, even in the most adverse circumstances. But, remember this…that’s NOT the only time to pray.
We all carry burdens, heavy burdens and one of these (even if we don’t know it) is the infirmity of not knowing how to pray. But…THE HOLY SPIRIT intervenes and gives us assistance in prayer.
The Believer labors in prayer with the assistance of The Holy Spirit.
The Word is preached by a servant of GOD, and The Holy Spirit bears witness to its authenticity by applying it our our hearts! The same is true regarding prayer. The Holy Spirit works in partnership with the Believer. He is The Comforter. Comfortor means “advocate”. Don’t be confused because only Jesus Christ is the advocate in the redemptive sense, but The Holy Spirit is our helper and is two-fold! He intercedes on our behalf by acting on behalf of the Believer but He instructs us what to say/plead.
Prayer is the key, and faith turns the key, opens the door, and claims our blessings.
It takes a WARRIOR to follow GOD.
Why do I say that? Because it’s not an easy road to follow but more importantly…GOD chooses warriors because their spirit is part of HIM, therefore it cannot be broken.
John 16 (KJV)
