”Principality of Fear” - Day 4 - Part 2-2a
* How Fear Enters Our Lives – Part 2-2a
The beauty and power of these promises bless God's people. As believers, how does fear enter our lives? These verses suggest two ways. The person who walks righteously stops his ears from hearing violence, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil. We must be very careful as to what we watch on television, at the movies, or what video games we play. Because satan will haunt us with something we have watched. Especially, Harry Potter and Pokémon which creates an entry point for the spirit of fear. II Timothy 1:7 says, "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." The spirit of fear is a tool of the devil that he sends to torment us. God has given His power, the Holy Spirit; His love, which is Himself; and a sound mind, which is Jesus the Word. We give the spirits of fear access to us by the things we choose to watch or participate in.
How many times have we exposed our eyes to evil, saying, "Well, I'm only watching, (or reading, or listening); I'm not actually doing it; or, it is just entertainment, so it’s okay”? Watching evil condones it. We become an accessory after the fact. We must choose to guard our eyes against evil. Most TV programming endangers your spiritual health, and that of your family.
Many video games are filled with violence, often resulting in antisocial behavior and rebellion. Pokémon, for instance, is straight from the pit of hell. Pokémon means "pocket monster." It is a dangerous game for our children to play, as a version of satanism for kids. Satanic worship invites people to gather more and more powerful demons inside themselves, giving them more powers and ability. The goal in Pokémon is to collect as many of the one hundred fifty different demons’ cards as possible, because owning the card gives you the character's power. This is pure satanism in its philosophy, principle, and practice.
Harry Potter is seducing our children into witchcraft, wicca, black magic and the occult. God says that we are to be called out and separated from other people – different from them, not like them. "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light" (I Peter 2:9). Yes, it's hard to live as called-out people given all the cultural distractions, but this is what Almighty God asks of us. God repeats this theme many times.
