Here are some past and current media headlines that the media parades before the masses as though these are what are important for us to acknowledge and aspire to:
Lindsay Lohan poses for spread in Playboy magazine (why does a lesbian want to pose for a historically male magazine? Why do men flock to purchase it?)
Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries….divorcing after 72 days of marriage.
Jerry Sandusky….exposed for sexually abusing young boys at Penn State.
Herman Cain….exposed for having 13 year affair along with other accusations of sexual improprieties.
Newt Gingrich….becomes front-runner of Republican candidates….despite a history of adultery, 3 marriages, racist ideology….(stay tuned, more headlines coming soon)!
Lady Gaga/Madonna/Beyonce to name a few who epitomizes the “great mother of whores” whose judgment will come swiftly and at the hands of those whom she has served.
Sister Wives….Toddler’s & Tiara’s….Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, American Idol, XFactor, GLEE, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, SURVIVOR, THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE, HOUSE WIVES OF _______!, Charlie Sheen and perhaps the greatest influence of all…the Goddess OPRAH!
All that is wicked and profane is glorified in this world, and we who are the chosen people of God, who profess Yeshua/Jesus Christ as Lord, who have been given power and authority over the Devil and all of his works….sit idly by in the safety of our church pews and do nothing, and say nothing….while people are destroyed in a world gone wild with all manner of sin, lust and godlessness; not even acknowledging that the very sin, lust and worldliness that is sometimes preached about has crept into the church and rendered God’s people as dead as those people who are in the world.
I often hear the mantra “We Need Revival” or “Revive Us Lord”….well we’ve already been given new Life in Christ, but the need to have it again only means that you were not transformed by your ‘baptism’ or the ‘renewing of your mind’.
THE CHURCH IS FULL OF PEOPLE WHO ARE SAVED, YET NOT TRANSFORMED.
My dear family in Christ, there is much that we must learn about God’s Eternal Purposes and so I’m attempting here, by the power of the Holy Spirit to bring a measure of Truth so that you are not caught unaware. We are living in the “evil day”. The world is dark and wicked and full of every kind of sin; yet God’s people have become spiritually “Dull” and unable to discern the time and season that is upon us. According to the following Scriptures in Revelation 17:14 They will go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are called, chosen and faithful will overcome along with him.”
That is to say the 10 Kings and the Beast will go to war against the Lamb. So let’s read the entire chapter of Revelation 17:
Revelation 17 (CJB) Messianic Hebrew Translation1 Then came one of the angels with the seven bowls; and he said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great whore who is sitting by many waters. 2 The kings of the earth went whoring with her, and the people living on earth have become drunk from the wine of her whoring.” 3 He carried me off in the Spirit to a desert, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast filled with blasphemous names and having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet and glittered with gold, precious stones and pearls. In her hand was a gold cup filled with the obscene and filthy things produced by her whoring. 5 On her forehead was written a name with a hidden meaning, BAVEL THE GREAT MOTHER OF WHORES AND OF THE EARTH’S OBSCENITIES 6 I saw the woman drunk from the blood of God’s people, that is, from the blood of the people who testify about Yeshua. On seeing her, I was altogether astounded. 7 Then the angel said to me, “Why are you astounded? I will tell you the hidden meaning of the woman and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that was carrying her. 8 The beast you saw once was, now is not, and will come up from the Abyss; but it is on its way to destruction. The people living on earth whose names have not been written in the Book of Life since the founding of the world will be astounded to see the beast that once was, now is not, but is to appear. 9 This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven hills on which the woman is sitting; also they are seven kings – 10 five have fallen, one is living now and the other is yet to come; and when he does come, he must remain only a little while. 11 The beast which once was and now is not is an eighth king; it comes from the seven and is on its way to destruction. 12 The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet begun to rule, but they receive power as kings for one hour, along with the beast. 13 They have one mind, and they hand over their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are called, chosen and faithful will overcome along with him.” 15 Then he said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the whore is sitting, are peoples, crowds, nations and languages. 16 As for the ten horns that you saw and the beast, they will hate the whore, bring her to ruin, leave her naked, eat her flesh and consume her with fire. 17 For God put it in their hearts to do what will fulfill his purpose, that is, to be of one mind and give their kingdom to the beast until God’s words have accomplished their intent. 18 And the woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”
My desire is to share God’s Truths with any who will ‘hear’, yet there are many (even those who profess Yeshua/Jesus Christ) that will reject the Truths presented here, because they don’t want to know God other than He is Love; but that is so one-dimensional and I don’t believe God is one-dimensional; in fact, the Bible presents God as manifold.
So how can the church cry out for Revival, yet not accept our God’s manifold wisdom and judgments….it’s the same as saying “we only want part of you”. You’ll follow the world’s wisdom and scoff at God’s wisdom….just proves how unstable you are.
I was thinking about the phenomenon of Lady Gaga and how she embodies the wickedness that envelopes the world….yet she easily has moved into power and status, because the wiles of the Devil are so deceitful; and the world worships Lady Gaga, but the Truth is that we are defined by our names and if you look up the world gaga….this is the definition:
gaga: CRAZY, FOOLISH
Synonyms: BALMY, BARMY [chiefly British], BATS, BATTY, BEDLAM, BONKERS, BRAINSICK, BUGHOUSE [slang], CERTIFIABLE, CRACKBRAINED, CRACKED, CRACKERS, CRACKPOT, CRANKY [dialect], CRAZED, CRAZY, CUCKOO, DAFFY, DAFT, DEMENTED, DERANGED, FRUITY [slang], INSANE, HAYWIRE, KOOKY (also KOOKIE), LOCO [slang], LOONY (also LOONEY), LOONY TUNES (or LOONEY TUNES), LUNATIC, MAD, MANIACAL (also MANIAC), MENTAL, MESHUGA (or MESHUGGE also MESHUGAH or MESHUGGAH), MOONSTRUCK, NON COMPOS MENTIS, NUTS, NUTTY, PSYCHO, PSYCHOTIC, SCATTY, SCREWY, UNBALANCED, UNHINGED, UNSOUND, WACKO (also WHACKO), WACKY (also WHACKY);
And this is what the world celebrates. Church, we have so much work to do, no time for us to continue to be dull and undiscerning and continually wrestling with our own issues and sins….we must be delivered and transformed by the renewing of our minds, and walking in power, authority and righteousness as God intends. We are Overcomers of this world….let’s get to work!
Father in the precious and Holy Name of your Son Yeshua/Jesus Christ, I pray for your people to be revived and renewed and transformed by your Word and you Spirit; I pray that your people will walk in the power, authority and righteousness that has been given them. I pray that your people will contend with the rulers of darkness, powers of darkness and principalities of this world and pull down the strongholds that have taken men captive. I pray that all of your chosen people be transformed by the renewing of their minds as your Word exhorts us to do; and let us your people take our eyes off the things of this world and not conform to the wisdom of this world, but instead seek your wisdom and your righteousness and seek to live by your standards. Amen!
