Normally, I don’t visit or scan messages from prophetic web sites. I prefer to move forward and not dwell on my past involvement with that scene, but today my curiosity got the upper hand, and I checked out a site. I’m not sure if it’s a coincidence, a “God thing,” or what, but the author wrote an article that indirectly touched on a topic that God has been talking to me about for quite some time now.
The topic is consecration to God, and how the world will throw everything in your pathway to keep you from that consecration.
Christians, especially in the western church, have to realize that we have been duped.
Somewhere in the back of our mind, the devil has put the idea that movies, television and video games are part of our existence and that, no matter what level of “spirituality” you adhere to, they will always be part of your life and anyone who says differently just has a “religious spirit” (which is never mentioned in the Word).
Searching for Prophetic Revelation in Carnal Sources
Some Christians, especially in the prophetic movement, will diligently search movies (even rated “R” movies) and music for some glimpse, some hint to a deeper, “Christian” message.
Conveniently ignoring the filth in 99% of the movie/song, they will bring to the forefront the 1%, attach it to a Scripture and label it as “God inspired.”
Music and Movies are NOT a Source of Prophetic Revelation
When I was involved with the Elijah List and the prophetic movement, I noticed a desperation to find a message from God in the things of the world. They would look to movies like “Braveheart” or “The Matrix” and find vague parallels to a Scripture, or a biblical character. (I did this too.)
Additionally, secular songs like “Come Together” from the Beatles, or “Wind Beneath My Wings” from Bette Middler would be played in the middle of worship services… like that’s somehow supposed to bring us closer to God?
God said in His Word:
What you have in your mind shall never be, when you say, “We will be like the Gentiles, like the families in other countries, serving wood and stone.”
When the children of Israel went in to conquer the land, they were to be SET APART from those nations… completely annihilating them! Adopting their practices never entered the picture! They may have thought in their minds that they were going to become like the other nations, but God said “No!”
Do you actually think that He’s changed His mind today?
Christians Still Love Their Idols
Today’s entertainment, which is nothing less than worshiping other “gods,” has become so much a part of our culture, that we are no longer cognizant of its impact on our spiritual lives.
Sure, certain people will squawk about Harry Potter, Twilight and internet porn, but there is still an addiction to the “lesser evils” that we so easily justify and excuse.
The truth is, although we may not entertain vampires and sexual imagery, we have other images in our minds and songs in our heads that interrupt the voice of the Holy Spirit whispering to us.
The Truth is, we LOVE our idols… we ADORE them!
To Receive Prophetic Revelation – Learn the Definition of “Abomination”
There is a thing called an “abomination” in the Bible. According to Dictionary.com, it means “disliked, abhorred; a vile, shameful, or detestable action, condition, habit.” I’ve heard it compared to vomit and human waste… absolutely disgusting and intolerable.
The mere idea of being around an “abomination” will cause such revulsion that you will run from it!
Listen to what God says about abominations:
Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it. You shall utterly detest it and utterly abhor it, for it [is] an accursed thing.
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you.
For all who do such things, all who behave unrighteously, are an abomination to the LORD your God.
For the perverse person is an abomination to the LORD, But His secret counsel is with the upright.
Do a search for the word “abomination” on the Blue Letter Bible website, there is so much information there… it’s too much to put in a post.
How can a true prophet receive prophetic revelation from carnal sources?
Now, I find it interesting that it’s the prophetic movement that is searching for these “revelations.” But what should a prophet do, according to Scripture?
I have also sent to you all My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, “Turn now everyone from his evil way, amend your doings, and do not go after other gods to serve them; then you will dwell in the land which I have given you and your fathers.” But you have not inclined your ear, nor obeyed Me.
Why do the “prophets” love to find “prophetic revelation” in sources that, at their core, are from hell?
The people that make them are homosexuals, liars, perverts, etc!
For the 5 minutes of “prophetic revelation” that (through our carnal thinking) may appear in the movie, you have to weed through 2 hours of adultery, murder, lust, profanity and carnality. It’s from HELL!!
To Receive Prophetic Revelation – Treat Your Temple Like a Temple
If you really ARE a believer, you have the Holy Spirit residing within you. But if modern entertainment is part of your lifestyle, you are defiling your temple.
But they set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to defile it.
People, we need to ask this hard question:
Since when does God need the voice of the devil to speak to His children?
Could it be because they won’t listen to anything else?
…I’m just sayin’…
