We live in a Culture of Death that we have become far to acquainted with. Jesus Christ died on the cross for us to have life and more abundantly. John 10:10
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
In this scripture it is very clearly defined that the thief, (Satan) has come to defy the life that God sent for us. Jesus was sent to do a specific job and to was to give us life.
When we are conceived a miraculous thing occurs where two cells form a human being. A newer in vitro technique surprisingly shows a zinc lightning flash as the egg is fertilized. Zap!! Life has come forth.
We know this is the most amazing thing that happens and is nothing short of miracle! Human life is so precious.
I am writing on this topic The Culture of Death because we have become completely too comfortable and too familiar with this subject. When we are contending to be over-comers, we are actually defying death. Satan’s world. The Kingdom of darkness.
We have become very well acquainted with video games that the main component is killing. Movies that shows the killing of human life as a common everyday occurrence.
Conversations on social media that are forethought out murder of a person or people. It has become so much so it seems to be the main ingredient to our everyday life.
The death culture starts with violence. We have violence everywhere. In our manner, speech, attitudes, and actions. We see it in our designs in our culture on every manufactured item that for instance a harmless looking skull and bones is acceptable. It is on notebooks, T-shirts whether in-scripted or a picture or logo.
Anything that represents the Kingdom of darkness is fair game. It is inserted in textbooks of minor children such as a following story. When I was involved here in my local community, the topic on the table at that time was ” What was been inserted in the children’s textbooks?”
A case several years prior at the local high school was spells of witchcraft in the English textbooks on “How to Kill your Parents.” It was, after tremendous protest taken out of the school district.
Currently we see opposing curriculum to our core christian beliefs of family, gender, and anti God material. All the culture of death.
The infamous C.L.A.S. test here in the state of California, was not a test of knowledge but an insertion of disgusting stories to demean human life in every way. It was finally put to a stop as people became more bold about the suspicious manner in which the teachers were told not to LOOK at the test, while administering it. High school students caught on and started answering the test in foreign languages as to delay the “test” scores. Finally over 1,000 teachers took the test to local State Senator’s office to put a stop to the madness.
We are aborting babies without batting an eyelash. And they are just considered a consumer by-product out in the open media.
The assaults are much more than I can write here. Everything is disposable. Not just material goods but people, relationships, and the list goes on. I would like to talk about the power of our tongue.
Proverbs 18:21 St. Jerome Version as follows: “What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.”
What is in our heart/mind is what comes out of our mouth. What are we holding in our hearts? What is the traffic we contain in our mind/heart every day? What thoughts do you go over and over in your mind? Are they negative or positive? What you hold the most often in your heart/mind reveals two things. 1. Your idols. 2. The condition of your heart.
What we speak out creates in the atmosphere. Not to say that what we might be going thru isn’t true. However if we keep speaking out the negative Satan can grab hold of that and bring those things to pass in the negative. Our antidote is the word of God.
I want you to look closely at the following story. I worked at a medical facility that was multidisciplinary and multi physician. It was layered with every kind of gifted medical personnel and amazing doctors. Educated and experienced.
The head x-ray technician told the story of a friend of hers who kept announcing and actually pronouncing that her husband was going to die of a heart attack. This woman kept it up for nearly two years. Guess what? He died of a heart attack. Case in point.
If you constantly focus on the script of the lies of the enemy you WILL receive that negative report. My dear friends reading this, reflect in your heart the tapes that are playing are they from God or Satan? The war that we/you are in is the battle for your very soul. It starts in your heart/mind where all your feelings, emotions and decisions are made. Start paying attention to them and take every thought captive to the word of God. Your heart belongs to you and God. No-one else. We can have extremely close bonds with our spouse, child, sibling how ever, ultimately God paid the price. He died so we can be intimate with him. The enemy’s war against is to get in the middle of our God relationship and take over and control us . God has a free will loving relationship with us. The enemy uses fear, control, manipulation, and violence to kill any LOVE RELATIONSHIP we have with God. If we do not love God and ourself we can not love anyone else. Don’t particiapate in the WAR. Choose Life. Choose Love.
If you look closely to the environment around you, you will see the Culture of Death embedded into everything. Being observant of what you see will give you the level of life or death you are seeing. News is often negative or slanted. It’s almost opposite to know or see the good.
Use tools of seeing through the lens of Love. Get to know God personally and intimately.
Deuteronomy 30:15 “Today I am giving you a choice between good and evil, between life and death.”
Proverbs 12:28 ” Righteousness is the road to life; wickedness is the road to death.”
John 5:24 “I am telling you the truth; whoever hears my words and believes in him who sent me has eternal life. He will not be judged, but has already passed from death to life.”
Romans 8:6 ” To be controlled by the human nature results in death; to be controlled by the Spirit results in life and peace.”
