Forsaking worldly entertainment

 

Now I’m sure that the average professing Christian would think that I’m a bit extreme because I don’t have a TV in my house or listen to the radio.  Also, my husband and I just got through reiterating to our children (as we showed them pictures of basketball players wearing nail polish and purses!) why we don’t even follow professional sports anymore.

You see, the celebrities of this world are being used by satan to manipulate the masses into being (or accepting) everything that God hates. And this isn’t some illuminati conspiracy theory. It’ the truth. Even unbelievers know that the entertainment industry is Antichrist. Yet and still, we have professing Christians out here claiming to be so deep but they’re just as obsessed with Beyonce’ (and Obama!) as everyone else.

I would like to believe that true believers (especially in these end times) would have nothing to do with idol worship but the fact of the matter is that most of us are lukewarm. We love this world! We love it’s movies, and it’s music, and it’s fashion etc. But I’m here to WARN you that if you don’t forsake this world, you will be in danger of HELL FIRE. This world (and everything it values!), is not only Antichrist (in opposition to Jesus Christ) but it is going to burn in the fire of The Most High God’s WRATH.  So it’s time to come separate. We have to make a decision— Are we going to love (obey!) the Lord and His ways or are we going to deny Christ? Which in reality is what we’re already doing with our lives when we emulate these ungodly celebrities and pursue the pride of life. Don’t you know that your covetousness (which is idolatry) and your  guilty SINFUL pleasures are making you an enemy of God!?

“You adulteresses [disloyal sinners—flirting with the world and breaking your vow to God]! Do you not know that being the world’s friend [that is, loving the things of the world] is being God’s enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4, AMP)

Here’s another one:

“Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust and sensual craving of the flesh and the lust and longing of the eyes and the boastful pride of life [pretentious confidence in one’s resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father, but are from the world. The world is passing away, and with it its lusts [the shameful pursuits and ungodly longings]; but the one who does the will of God and carries out His purposes lives forever. (1 John 2:15-17, AMP)

We really need to start reading our bibles (and actually start applying it to our lives) because we are living in the Great Deception/the end of time. Everyone, including these celebrities are claiming to be of God but you can tell by their fruit that they are NOT. These people (and their followers) love money, they hate God.

“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.” (Matthew 6:24, NLT)

So I just wanted to remind you of these things. I could go on and on forever but the point is to guard your heart. Stand strong in the Lord, and on what the bible teaches.

With nothing but love,

Brandi
