We live in a world that is hostile to the Christian message, a world that is so anti –christ that it is fast becoming taboo to be a true Christian. From the world’s point of view, to be a true Christian is to be narrow minded, homophobic, perverted and foolish, people who are lead by blind faith. How did it get like this?
Satan has been planning the destruction of the followers of Jesus from the moment Jesus rose from the dead, because he knew from the moment the resurrection happened, his original plans backfired. So he has been going after the disciples of Jesus ever since.
It started with the centuries of physical persecution right up until the time of Constantine when Christians finally got some rest from the physical side when Constantine made Christianity the national religion. However, then started the era of spiritual persecution when Christianity as an organised religion began to be perverted by being mingled with elements from other religious systems.
In the dark ages and during the times of the reformation a remnant of people stood up for the truth of the gospel and the physical persecution kick in alongside the continuing perversion of the organised religious system.
Moving through the centuries and with the introduction of more eastern religious systems and philosophies into the west and with the increase of man knowledge in many areas, man has tried to intellectualise God out of the equation. Not realising they are puppets being handed certain knowledge and being influenced by the puppet master, which is Satan.
So we have the state of the world today, which is a combination of some very strategic planning on the part of Satan. Now the world is in a war and there are only two sides, those who are on the Lord’s side and those who are not.
Mat 10:32 Then everyone who shall confess Me before men, I will confess him before My Father who is in Heaven.
Mat 10:33 But whoever shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in Heaven.
Mat 10:34 Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to send peace, but a sword.
Mat 10:35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
Mat 10:36 And a man's foes shall be those of his own household.
Mat 10:37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
Mat 10:38 And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.
Mat 10:39 He who finds his life shall lose it. And he who loses his life for My sake shall find it.
Mat 10:40 He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.
As Christians, satan knows that the only way he can get to us is if we step out of our covering, because he understands Psalms 91
Psa 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall rest under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psa 91:2 I will say of Jehovah, my refuge and my fortress; my God; in Him I will trust.
Psa 91:3 Surely He will deliver you from the fowler's trap and from the destroying plague.
Psa 91:4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall trust. His truth shall be your shield, and buckler.
So he is always implementing things that are designed to take us out of our covering, which would give him a legal right to attack us.
So he floods the air waves with his music, his entertainment, his ideas, his philosophies. He establishes his governments, which are working towards his agenda of a one world government. He is doing all of these things not even realising, he also is a puppet and the true ultimate puppet master in God and God’s plan is focused on bringing the whole world back to how it was at the beginning before the immergence of sin.
Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. And the sea no longer is.
Rev 21:2 And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her Husband.
Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
Rev 21:4 And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes. And there will be no more death, nor mourning, nor crying out, nor will there be any more pain; for the first things passed away.
Rev 21:5 And He sitting on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me, Write, for these words are true and faithful.
So, we as Christians have to be very mindful of our enemy and his tactics, because if we are not, he will sifted us like wheat.
So be careful what you allow into life, your homes, what you watch, what you listen to because all of the negative stuff we take in is ammunition for our enemy to attack us with.
We are in an industry which goes against the traditional business model and as such our industry is always being attacked. It does not help that over the years some unscrupulous people have capitalised on the strength of the structure and created pyramid schemes. So we need to be very careful of the information we take in because if you take in enough negativity, it can shift your opinion.
We also need to be careful of the voices that we listen to, because there are going to be many people that are going to give us their opinion on what we are doing, and their opinion will be based on nothing more than heresy.
Understand that the moment you decided to build your home based business, you entered into a war:
A war with yourself
A war with other people’s opinions
A war with other company’s and products
Not everyone will survive!
