This one is for the kids. My teenage girls. But important for us all, really.
A collection of thoughts that are very important for times such as these.
They want us to be weird.
Bred that way.
Twisted. Mad. And confused.
Self love, but still feeling worthless.
No identity but the one they make for you.
Ready Player One?
Don't you see?
Your spirit is collateral damage.
Media shapes the generations. Media shapes you.
What do you consume?
Knowing only the way of the heathen.
People think they are unique, but they all look, sound, and think the same.
Strawman for this. Strawman for that. Idols for every demographic.
It's all fun and games until you take your last breath.
Spoken word by DayzOfNoah.
I added in some of my own mixed with his.
The world is going to world. But you've been warned. Man will be without excuse.
Take heart, God has already overcome the world.
"..The nations drank her wine; Therefore the nations are deranged."
Programmed to self destruct
The power of music, movies, and media.
If you want people to hate God, morality, discipline, be reckless, addicted to substances and unhealthy behaviors, to not trust people, be obsessed with themselves and create a world of foolish and selfish animals - Put it in the music. Put it in the movies.
Make it pretty. Make it everywhere and impossible to escape.
So many people seeking "being an individual" are in fact carbon copies making it glaringly obvious they are victims of programming.
You want to be different, but you look the same as everyone else trying to be different?
(Excerpts from 'Secret War on Millennials Part 1: New Age Counter Culture/Demise of the Family Unit' from Dayz of Noah)

The Battle for the Mind
The enemy seeks to take his seat in the temple of God. Where is the temple of God?
You. Me. We are the temple of the Most High. (1 Corinthians 3:16, 2 Thessalonians 2:3 & 4)
How do we know if it's the enemy or the Spirit of God seated in the temple of God?
The enemy reduces you to an animal.
A hackable animal with an operating system.
Unstable in so many ways.
Carnal minded. Feeding the flesh. Starving the spirit.
Conscience and mind defiled.
Lovers of self. Proud. Jealous. Envious.
The fruit of the Spirit of the Most High:
Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control.
The Spirit of God is one of power, love, and sound mind.
Turn on some peaceful music.
Have quiet time.
Turn things off if it's not feeding your soul.
Distance yourself from toxic people.
You can still love them and forgive them from a distance.
Don't be afraid of being alone.
Being bored isn't a bad thing in a world of instant gratification.
Be strong. Be bold. Be courageous.
Be patient when things don't immediately happen.
Remember to take some deep breaths.
Let the haters, mockers, scoffers fuel your desire to be different. Not like them.
Love God, love others.
Don't get buried in the algorithm of this social media driven world.
Dopamine driven feedback loops on social media...
A world driven by likes and dislikes...
A world where people can flip on you because of your opinion on any particular thing...
A world where we are all so disposable to each other....where all you do is just click the red x or unfollow.
A world where people build their perceptions of you based on a few things you post online or a brief interaction.
Life was not meant to be virtual.
Turn it off sometimes.
We were meant to hug and touch.
Pray and meditate biblically.
Don't empty that beautiful mind of yours meditating like the world does.
Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, The Most High is with you wherever you go.
Don't let these talking heads on these black mirrors (tv, internet, news, movies, music, etc) control who and what you are mad at when it does not reflect actual reality or your day to day life.
Don't let them tell you what is supposed to bring you joy or make you happy.
Don't take advice from lost people still searching for the Truth when you've already found it.
They are contrived talking heads.
Media shapes the generations.
Their personalities are even contrived. They are built for this. They are molded into characters that ultimately mold minds when they speak on things.
Controlling people's thoughts and emotions (frequencies) with every song, movie, and event that comes out. We are electrical beings; that's not new age talk.
People don't care about things until a shill on tv tells them to and it's so obvious. Guard your minds and discern when you are being manipulated.
The television, the internet, media, radio, etc can turn people on and off 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐚 𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐬𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐜𝐡.
Change my mind.
I watch people's passions and emotions change like the wind.
What mattered one year ago, two years ago, five years ago...where'd it go?
Did that thing go away because the media stopped talking about it? Will it come back when the media tells you who to be mad or happy about?
The last few years have shown many people who/what is in charge of their voice, their mind, their body, and their spirit.
People we used to respect.
People driven by fear and what others might think.
"Some people do not realize they are addicted to the chemicals their brain produces when they are afraid."
- Mel from TruthStreamMedia
I am not mentioning any particular celebrity, event, or topic intentionally because when it comes to the media polarizing us, it's across the board. All of it.
They feed off your reactions.
You can pay attention to events without becoming polarized like a robot.
We are called to be wise as serpents, harmless as doves - Lest the enemy should get an advantage of us: for we are not 𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭 of his devices.
So yes. Pay attention. Don't become polarized and hypnotized like the world does.
The world is being acclimated into receiving the false light.
Do not be deceived by lying signs and wonders.
Spiritual warfare. All of it. Take every thought captive.
Who or what will captivate our thoughts today?
Break free and become who God made you to be.
I'm not sharing this AT you. I am not immune to this mind control, either.
I'm fighting, too.
We all have areas of our lives that were molded by media.
We are consuming it constantly. Test all things and hold fast to what is good.
I will add more things to the comment section over time.
Much love! May the grace of God be your peace today!
Drop some wisdom in the comments if you have some to offer.
