Lest the enemy should get an advantage of us: for we are not 𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭 of his devices.
Came across this image that captures what I see in my mind and feel in my spirit (sometimes) when stumbling into a rabbit hole of information. It happens to the best of us. You don't have to be an expert on the enemy's plans. But we are instructed to be wise as serpents. We were also warned over and over and over by God to not be deceived. In order to fight in a battle, you have to know who the enemy is. Just don't get lost in the rabbit holes.
There's no light in them!! Make sure you bring a (the) Light with you when you venture down 🖤
Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
1 Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
1 Corinthians 1:18-25 18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.” 20 Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. 22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
I am not a Bible scholar or a professional writer. Just a child of God who wants to help others. I will try to make these blog posts flow well on my corner of the internet so they are easy to read. AND....I will keep it simple!
My intended audience is not the ones who already know all the things. I barely skim the surface on most of these blog posts intentionally. It's up to you to dig deeper if you are led to. If the Bible seems boring to you, you're not doing it right! Haha. I'm telling ya...
I share about things that have helped me cling to the hem of Christ's garment over the past several years; so if these things helped me, surely there's someone else out there it may help. Even if it's just one 🖤
Please read all disclaimers on my home page. Remember, it's not about us. It's about Christ!
Some advice to those new to the faith, weak in the faith, or want to have faith: Read, listen to, and study things that will solidify your faith!
If you are reading, listening to, or studying something that is making your faith falter, DROP IT.
There may be truth to it, but it may be something you aren't ready for and you can pick back up at a later time. Let the Holy Spirit lead! I am speaking from personal experience on that. We need to be able to endure patiently until either we're called home or until Jesus Christ returns. Solidify your relationship with Christ first and foremost.
Well said by my brother Aaron:
"If you are constantly on Facebook and YouTube watching videos about Jesus, The Gospel and the end times but yet you rarely spend time with God alone studying the scriptures for yourselves, you are opening the door to gross error.
So many of our questions concerning various biblical topics can be cleared up by simply receiving revelation and understanding from the Holy Spirit in your private time with God.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with being edified and equipped by other believers but if you FORSAKE INTIMACY WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, YOU WILL NOT BEAR THE FRUIT CHRIST IS LOOKING FOR IN YOUR LIFE.
You must know HIM for YOURSELF. No one can know HIM for YOU.
It is not God's will for us to be CONSUMED (key word) with 5G, Chemtrails, flat earth, Illuminati, celebrity deaths, etc.
You must know HIM.
EVEN JESUS UNDERSTOOD THE CONSPIRACY BEHIND HIS UPCOMING DEATH BUT HE CONTINUED IN THE WORK THAT HIS FATHER GAVE HIM TO DO.
He did not consume (keyword again) himself with how the Jews and Rome would conspire against Him.
I am not saying these things have no significance but it has no significance to the perfecting of the saints and the work of the ministry that Jesus began and that we must fulfill."
Truly a convicting word if you receive it. I know I did.
