Pause Hit Rewind

The blog I posted a few Mondays ago was really heavy on me for the following week or so. Not because of the content within it, but because it made me feel like a hypocrite. I almost took it down, but decided not to. If you haven’t read it already you can here. I felt and still kind of do feel like a hypocrite. My kids watch some of this garbage. My older kids watched these movies. I have curbed my youngest son from watching a lot of this, but not all. I am trying to stay under the radar with it really. I have just had my eyes open to this stuff with Hollywood and satan’s agenda. I can’t just pop in and take everything away from him. That would push him away from God. I have to go at it gently. Plus his daddy (my husband) is not a believer and if I go to crazy all at once I will push him away. I have stopped watching TV and I have been surprised on how much everyone else has cut back on watching TV. The reason I didn’t take that post down is because I want others to know! I wish I knew this stuff before I got married, before I had kids. I feel like not very many people know this stuff. I am blown over to the reason why we aren’t being warned about this stuff in church, where is the discernment?! I actually feel like I am loosing it some times because I seldomly see Christians concerned about this stuff. Anyways, This is where my head is at right now. I haven’t posted any blog posts for awhile now and this one is short. I’ve had to take a step back and rethink things. I will be doing a complete make over on this blog soon.

“And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.” (Philippians 1:9-10)

Wake up! satan Wants You and Your Children to Work for him

A lot of unbelievers think that God is just somebody off in His own little world just as most Christians think that satan is in his own little world. Or maybe you think satan is locked away and can’t influence you anyway. Maybe he only puts thought into your head of provokes people to harass or kill someone. The Bible says that satan is a roaring lion seeking who he may destroy (1 Peter 5:8). Satan is in everything! God is in control, but satan’s desire is to dominate our lives, our minds and our world. Even as Christians he is influencing us. I don’t want anyone to think that we can blame everything on him, we are sinful in our own flesh and desires. We need to wake up to how satan is working in our lives, our children’s lives! If you think he is just sitting off in the distance you need to wake up. he is working through your entertainment! he is working through your school system! he is working through your government! You may be thinking yea, I know that! But do you really know how much he is working? Do you know that even so called Christian books have you reading stuff written by demons? Do you know how Disney is influencing your children for satan’s kingdom? He isn’t just in secular music and TV, he is EVERYWHERE!! satan is even working in our churches! I know I sound a little nutty, but I’ve seen it. I cannot un-see it! he knows that God wins in the end and he is deceiving so many people so he can bring as many people as he can right into hell with him! If you are a born-again believer your soul is safe, but he is going to do all he can do to discourage you and pull your children down with him. Wake up!! This life isn’t going to get any better you need to be right with God and be aware of all of satan’s schemes and trickery!

I want to look at subliminal messages. The word “subliminal” means: existing or operating below the threshold of consciousness. Does Hollywood send us and our kids subliminal messages? Even if you think that is overkill look at what they are promoting. Next time you sit down with your family to watch a Disney Movie or any movie for that ask yourself this question… what are they teaching my child? Here is a video that might make you see what they are doing. It may seem a bit extreme, but do the research for yourself.

If that didn’t convince you or seemed a bit to extreme for you check out this blog post “How I hate that I get bothered by the movie Frozen–telling myself that I need to “Let It Go” I came across this blog post some time ago after watching the movie “Frozen” it really opened my eyes to how satan is working through even PG movies! Here is a tidbit of that blog and I encourage you to read it for yourselves.

“…back to Frozen. I am not a big fan of Disney movies. Most animated Disney movies promote some form of witchcraft, spirituality, not to mention unhealthy relationships. So I am not surprised at the level of ‘magic’ we see in this movie. It is typical of Disney movies to highlight magic, but I am surprised at the level of occultism in the song ‘Let It Go.'” Read more here

There is so much influence satan has on us and our children! As a believer I was lead astray by music! I fell on my face and with the help from other believers I had my eyes opened to what satan was doing to me. I prayed for truth and God has shown me what I am up against, what my children are up against. It’s time to wake up!

  “We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.” (I John 5:19)

Friday’s Week in Review (3/20/13)

spring

Photo [Source]

Hello all! Today is the first day of Spring! My favorite season! Over the weekend I posted a blog post on “Lecrae” read it and tell me what you think… (:

Monday: I posted a summery I found in MacArthur’s Bible commentary called “God’s Role in Salvation”. You can read it here.

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—” (1 Corinthians 1:30)

Tuesday: Who was Saint Patrick and why do we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? GotQuestions.org had some info here. I never really get into the holidays much. I feel like they are just there mainly for people to make extra money, more on that later…

In other news the Jewish temple altar has been Rebuilt and it is ready for use.
Read more HERE

Jesus Culture, have you heard of them? You have thoughts on them or any good, reliable information I can get my hands on? Hillsong as well? Here is a very short clip form Todd Friel at Wretched Radio talking about Jesus Culture and a little about Hillsong. I’ve heard this and a little about them from others and now I am curious. I have some of Hillsongs music… wondering if I should delete it or not. Gotta do some research on them I suppose!

Thursday: Imagine all the time and money these “scientist” would save if they just opened the Bible and stopped trying to disprove God! The evolution thing doesn’t work so they need to find a different explanation! Btw I have another theory about why they are trying to push the alien thing… Here is an article by Ken Ham I found interesting.

Say What!?! Lecrae

Lecrae is a Christian rapper. Before I came to Christ I was a big fan of rap music. After coming to Christ my music preference has changed. I went from secular rap to Christian rap. Lecrae and Trip Lee being two of my favorites. I started wondering about Lecrae when a brother in Christ pointed out to me that Lecrae was a friend to this world. That brother of mine didn’t really give me a lot of proof so I started doing some digging myself.

“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4)

Music has caused me to stumble a few times and after this last time God really opened my eye’s to how satan was working in my life through music. After this new revelation and my brother in Christ pointing things out I had to ask myself if I should be listening to Lecrae or not. I started looking at his lyrics and who he was working with. I found a few things that made me stop listening to his music.

One of the first things that I found was his song “Devil In Disguise” featuring Kevin Ross. Lecrae defended this song and accused Christians of being judgmental. He says “Christians why are we so judgmental? Not as in calling our [brothers] and [sisters] to walk worthy of the Gospel but sometimes I think we are absolutely LOOKING for something wrong, off, or sinful about people,” [source] I don’t know Lecrae’s heart only God does, but I have to “look” for things to be wrong, I have to test everything because I don’t want to stumble I don’t want to fall. I cannot expose myself to evil! No matter how harmless it may seem. God tells us to think on what is true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report. The way I see it singing a song over and over in my head is thinking or meditating on them. So I cannot be subject to lyrics like:

“Popping pills and powder, trying to kill some hours
Cause when I’m sober, man I promise I can feel the power
Of death eating me slowly I’m on my way
Heaven or Hell?”

Lecrae says that this is Kevin Ross’s story, but I still don’t like the message it is sending. I don’t feel that it is right. He may justify it and his fans may go right along with him, but I don’t see how it brings any glory to God. I couldn’t find much on Kevin Ross, but if this is his story I pray he will find Christ.

“finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.” (Ephesians 5:10-11)

imageLecrae has other songs featuring Paul Wall (Paul Michael Slayton) and B.O.B (Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr). B.O.B sings a song featuring Bruno Mars called “Nothin’ On You”. If you don’t know who Bruno Mars is singing for check this video out “Bruno Mars, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Super Bowl and Satan”.

Just look into who he is working with. That alone should set off alarm bells. Don Cannon is a music producer who works for Def Jam Recordings and works along side of Lecrae. Don’s work includes Logic’s song “Nasty”, and another song called “This Thing Of Ours” by Wale featuring Rick Ross.

You need to not only look at the lyrics, but you need to look at the people Lecrae works with. I don’t know why Lecrae is working with people like this and allowing lyrics from his song “Devil In Disguise” into his music, but I do know first hand how music can influence your mind and cause you to turn your back on God. I feel into this trap with a song I use to consider “clean”. After falling flat on my face I went back and looked deeper into my “favorite” song at the time and the writer of the song was someone working for satan. So now I not only look at the lyrics I look at the writers and producers. Look into it yourself!

Just wanted to add one more thing. Lecrae was asked by Noisey Music by Vice  “You talk a lot about how you’ve matured in your thinking and your craft. I’m curious if the old Lecrae would be disappointed in the new Lecrae.” He says “For sure he would.” and Laughs. Then he is asked In what way?” (Lecrae would say to his younger self) “Aw man you’re selling out. You’ve fallen off man.” I’m sure that would be the way my old self would think about. To read more on this interview click here.

“If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” (John 15:9)

Friday Week in Review (3/13/15)

Happy Friday the 13th again!?! It is just another day for me. Does it mean anything to you? I don’t know about anyone else, but the daylight savings time has been really hard for me. I got extra sleep Saturday night/ Sunday morning, went to bed early Sunday night and still had a hard time. Why? I got the same amount of sleep. Maybe my body is just use to those hour? Also the longer days have thrown me off a bit. I think well its still so light out I have all kinds of time to cook dinner. Ha! I am so ready for Spring though!

Monday: My blog this week was about Natural Religion. When people go day to day without even considering God and then something goes wrong they pray. Who are they praying to? Check out the blog post HERE!

truth

Here is an article from Ken Ham called The Religion of “None”. It goes right along with my blog post from Monday!

Tuesday:

1104674

I got this picture and a lot like this one from Tim Challies he is a blogger, author, and book reviewer. I value his work! You should check out his blog! Click here.

The coming Persecution will happen, if you read the Bible you know it is coming. This article “The Coming Persecution” by Joe Schimmel will open your eyes to the reality of it. How some people out right say Christians need to be removed to usher in the New Age. They need us out of the way because they know we won’t fall for their lies!

Thursday: I wish this Dawkins guy would just shut up and stop trying to disprove God to make himself feel better. If God isn’t real [he thinks] why does he care so much!?! He has to do and say this stuff so he can convince himself, he knows there is a God. He just doesn’t want there to be a God. He has to talk himself out of believing daily so he can sleep at night! “It is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.” (Mark 9:42) He says Gov’t Must Protect Children From Religious Parents Back off my kids Dawkins! God gave them to me not you!

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

Natural Religion (Praying to an Unknown God)

“Then the mariners were afraid; and every man cried out to his god, and threw the cargo that was in the ship into the sea, to lighten the load. But Jonah had gone down into the lowest parts of the ship, had lain down, and was fast asleep.
So the captain came to him, and said to him, “What do you mean, sleeper? Arise, call on your God; perhaps your God will consider us, so that we may not perish.” (Jonah 1:5-6)

There was a storm raging on in the seas threatening to break up the ship that Jonah was on. The mariners who were on the ship along with Jonah were afraid. Out of fear the mariners started to pray. The problem with them praying was the fact that they were praying to their gods and not the One True God. The mariners fell under the deception that so many others fall under today and in the past. Everyone has a religion! This religion is called Natural Religion and it is a religion of fear. They only pray when they need something or when they are fearful, but what god are they praying to? The mariners were probably praying to any god that they thought would help them. After they realized that their gods were not going to help and the only God that could save them was the “Unknown God” (He is the only God that can save any of us)! They went to Jonah and told him to pray to his God. Jonah knew who the One True God was because he was trying to run from Him.

The Unknown God can be known!

“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained [Jesus Christ]. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”  (Acts 17:23-31)

Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus saying “Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious; for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: ‘To The Unknown God’.” (Acts 17:22-23)  Like the mariners the men of Athens were from the same religion, Natural Religion. People who consider themselves to be Atheist or Agnostic belong to a religion, Natural Religion. I know so many people that are from Natural Religion. They pray when they are sick, they pray when their child is sick. They pray when they are faced with problems that are out of their control. I once heard an atheist say that they knew their child was in heaven. Tell me atheist don’t believe in God?! They know there is a God they just don’t want any part of The Unknown God. They want a god on their own conditions. They make up a god of their own to be who they want and need it to be. Not much has changed since Jonah or Paul’s time, has it?

The One True God, the God of The Bible has put eternity in all men’s hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11), He has shown everyone that He is the One True God (Psalm 19:1-2)!

I got the inspiration for this blog post from a sermon I listened to this week called “Grace to Wake Up“.

He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination. (Proverbs 28:9)
