A subject has come to my attention
recently, concerning certain 'board games,'/ computer games / books, etc;
that are very dangerous to those who participate in them.
This is a very serious
subject, and perhaps it involves someone you know, or a loved one, or you
Concerning computer games, DVD's, board games, and literature, like World of Warcraft, Pokemon, Ouija boards, dungeons and dragons, Harry Potter material, séances, and all other of such types of 'so called' games, and books/literature...
It is time for those especially in the body of Christ to understand that these things are NOT innocent games, and reading material/movies, etc. They are absolute tools of Satan himself to bring destruction, and even death to those who participate in such things.
I want to insert this thought as well, before we begin. Even the practice of Churches sponsoring 'Halloween night" is at best insane. The true Christian should have nothing to do with this, or any other evil participation, even if it is coming as bible characters, and so forth, it is "still a participation.." Why not rather stay home, and explain to the children the dangers of this wicked holiday. Also, the ungodly practice of "Easter egg hunts," on the day we celebrate as the body of Christ, "The risen Savior." Another deception of the devil ! What in the name of our Lord Jesus does bunny rabbits and eggs have to do with the resurrection of Jesus Christ ? Just another slap in the face of God by the ignorance of the world, and the world in the church, to turn the attention away from the true meaning of the day, and place the emphasis on rabbits and egg hunts. Another amusement of Jezebels doing to further weaken the already anemic Church. Please, have more spiritual sense than to mock our risen Christ in such a way, and teach your little ones to do the same. There is no way, you can explain to them, or to anyone else, the connection between bunny rabbits, and egg hunts, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ ! Stop being fooled by these lies from hell !
Please allow an explanation to be given concerning some of these games. Then you must hear the Lord for yourself, and weigh these things in the light of the Word of God, and the Holiness, and purity of God, and the purity He desires for His children to walk in....
Before we really get into this, I want you to understand this example. Even cigarettes have a warning on the pack that says this can cause cancer, and even death. It is very unhealthy. Some say, "I just do it to relax," or "I only do it on occasion," or "I only do it to be socially accepted, all my friends do it," some will say,"I do it because I choose to." What ever the reason given here, the warning on the pack does not change. Smoking destroys the body, and the body according to God, is His temple to the ones who love and know Him as Lord. As time goes on, most find it difficult to quit, once they "see the light' and realize they must stop. Some find it impossible to quit and need professional help. Some won't quite, and some die from this habit, because 'they stubbornly discarded all warnings'.
God gives us direction as His children, and with this direction sometimes there are warnings. The direction is given to guide us on the correct pathway, and that always leads to Jesus, and righteousness, (what is right in God's eyes). The warnings are there to give understanding of what not to do, to keep us safe along our way, as well as educate us to the fact, there are 'consequence's in doing what 'we want', rather than what God has set before us.
In what I have to share with all of you below, concerning these things, there are dangers, there are warnings, and there are consequences. God has laid out for us 'clearly' in His Word, the dangers of walking in darkness, flirting with evil, whether we call it "just some innocent fun," or whether we get hooked, and get deeper and deeper into this very demonic web of deceit and lies from Satan.
Please give an ear to hear, and a heart to receive, as we look at these deceptive "toys" that the enemy has created to bewitch God's people, and lead them astray from holiness, and truth, and the light of the Word of God, and relationship with Christ.... And beloved, all these things, (holiness, righteousness, love for the Word of God, and truth), will grow weak and cold, if you are involved in these dangerous so called games. They are far more dangerous than any disease or cancer known to man. These kill the soul, they rob one of the very understanding of Christ, and love for God becomes, at first indifferent, and complacent, then when approached with the truth from a friend or loved one, a defense rises up, an anger. The more this continues, the person begins to use every means to find justification for what they are doing, and seeks to find those who will help their defense, those who too, are deceived, and caught in the spell of a Jezebel spirit, that comes to lead Gods people astray, (from the truth).
Again, please take the time, with your bible in hand, and look at these scriptures with me, and let God do the showing. Let God do the talking here. If you find it silly, or foolish, or inconvenient, to do so. If you find something rising up within you to ignore this, I tell you in all sincerity and tears. This is the flesh and the Devil working to keep you from the knowledge of the truth and keep you blind to truth, and keep you in bondage. It only gets worse from here..... Satan is a liar, and the father of all lies, Jesus tells us. Why would a holy, righteous, pure, loving God, want, or allow, His children to wander off into the realm of the demonic 'again', that they came out of when they gave their heart to Christ as sinners, and vowed to walk in the light, no longer in the evil ways of darkness ? The answer.. He does not want this ! 1 John 1: 5 says "God is light,and in Him is NO darkness at all, if we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth."
Please look at the following passages of scripture with me for a moment, and lets see together what God is saying, before we continue....
Eph 5:6-7, 11 NIV
For of this you can be sure: No immoral,
impure or greedy person--such a man is an idolater--has any inheritance in
the kingdom of Christ and of God.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Mark 7:21-23 NASB
"For from within, out of the heart of
men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries,
From Mark 1:15 KJV
...The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
Repentance is what we were supposed to have done when we came to Christ. Repent of what? Our sins, are evil deeds, walking in darkness and strangers to the light. Shall we go back now to the darkness, and call it "entertainment," ? Just a little fun? I don't really mean anything by it, and the kids love it so much ! I will never get into the real deep stuff, not me ! Be warned friend. You are in the "deep stuff already," the moment you start. It only gets 'deeper', and darker from there !
Look at this with me:
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 NIV
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. (KJV - necromancer.) Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.
You say... "OH, I would never do such things as these...!" Do you understand what these thing mean, that the Lord speaks of here in this passage?
The words used here, represent, "fortune telling, Magic, horoscopes, necromancy, séances, palm reading, spells, curses, all things in nature to the occult. There is no such thing as doing them for fun, or it is just a game, or just entertainment.... NO, it is absolutely the gateway to the demonic world of the occult, and will 'without question' lead to bitterness and rebellion to godly authority, and anger toward the truth of God's Word, and anyone who shares that truth with you concerning how wrong these things are... It does 'without question', lead to demonic oppression, and wandering eventually from the truth of God, and depression, and in a good deal of cases, "suicide." This is a fact.
In 1 Samuel chapter 28: Saul seeks the council of a witch, a medium, one who cast spells and talks to the dead. A spiritist. one who is involved with darkness and vexes, and curses and demons. If you read this chapter you will quickly learn, that it lead Saul to falling so far from God, and from the Light, he finally committed suicide. We, as Children of God, are never to seek council or advice from any source other that the Word of God, or the godly council of a brother or sister who is filled with the Holy Spirit, and will give us help from the Word, and always lead us to Jesus. Again, don't call this a game, or entertainment. God has placed a death sentence upon it. 'Come out from the darkness, and into the light..."
The fact that so many Christians and even pastors are defending playing these games is truly a sad commentary on how weak the church has become. We can so easily justify the sin/rebellion we want to hang on to. “It’s only a game, I’m not actually casting a spell on someone.” Yes you are, whether you realize it or not ! I would suggest carefully reading Deuteronomy 18:9-13. Divination, witchcraft, interpreting omens, sorcery, casting spells, mediums, spiritists. These things are detestable to the God that we claim to follow. It will, I can assure you, fill your home, and your family, and your soul with demonic presence ! Things will happen, and you will wonder, "where did that come from?' I tell you where it came from. The demons that were allowed in your home and life, or life of a child or loved one.
Look with me for a moment at 1 Corinthians 10: 18-21
18..Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar? 19..Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20..No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21..You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord's table and the table of demons.
Folks the word here is very clear.... We cannot walk with the Lord Jesus, and walk in the light of His purity and holiness, and also play games with the darkness, and set at the table of evil and participate in what is contrary to Gods Word, and invite what is occult in nature, and evil, into our homes, and children, and our very souls... We cannot "sacrifice" our time and money to this so called innocent entertainment. We cannot sacrifice our selves or our children to the very desires of Satan, and allow them to sit at the "table of demons,' and read Harry Potter material, or play any of the above mentioned so called games. These are games of death. Jesus brings words of life. It truly is a big deal.
These so called games are clearly DEMONIC, you rule over demonic powers, participate in demonic rituals, and use demons to do the bidding. Christians cannot participate in such evil as this. It is very difficult to believe that a true Christian would find interest in, or play such 'so-called games as these. At this point, I believe one must truly check their salvation and see if indeed they are in the faith of Jesus Christ... 2 Corinthians 13: 5-6
The ironic thing is that in the name
of relevance we have become so much like the world that the world doesn’t
even see the point of what we’re saying. We have for the most part lost
the power of God as Samson did. The Philistines (Powers of darkness), are
attacking our churches, our children, marriages and lives, and we have
become powerless to stop it ! We, as the church, the body of Christ, offer
the same advice the world can get from Ladies Home Journal, or Reader’s
Digest. Your Best Life Now” - they can get that from Tony Robbins, Oprah
Winfrey, Dr. Phil, and a million more like them, and some of them are in
Jesus Himself said “among them that are born of women there is none greater than John the Baptist”. You will Never find anywhere in scripture where he tailored his evangelism so as to be relevant to his culture. He didn’t play the world’s games in order to “reach” the lost, he spoke the truth clearly and unapologetically and left the results to God. The Apostles and Prophets, and disciples of the new testament, "never" tailored their message to satisfy the needs of peoples flesh nature or to bring in a crowd, or used gimmicks or entertainment to keep the youth there, or the adults. They preached the Word of God. When did God change ? He has not . He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
