Yesterday I watched the Grammy awards with my brother (I’m not sure if it was 2015 or 2016 edition) and I don’t need to tell you how out of tune I was with everything that was going on!
I kept asking my brother “who is this” and “who is that” and it just served to nail the point that my tastes has soooo changed over the years. Thank God!
So I drifted off to sleep after a while but in the midst of the video, I and my brother kept picking out things that might seem “normal” to the regular person but really means so much more.
Firstly the dress sense of almost every lady was one that showed off either a cleavage of a thigh.
And my brother was like “they call this confidence in their body” (true confidence as a woman can only come from knowing our identity in God, the world is just selling people lies…)
Then there was a song where ultimately the lady was singing about lesbianism but couched it in a fine voice and great instrumentals…
And as I sat there with my spirit pricking me about these things, I thought “oh there will be millions of girls who will go out to get these exact same clothes after this event”.
There will be millions of girls who may have been having issues with their sexuality and because of one song, could go all out, full blown in lesbianism and let that demon take a hold of their life without knowing that God didn’t intend for them to be gays and His power can set them free!
Last week when I was in my friend’s house, I peeped an interview of one highly popular lady where she said “she didn’t want to go to hell but then in the very next breath asked if sex before marriage is a sin”.
She was like “it’s not a sin, how is it a sin…bla bla bla”.
They were subtle words said in the finest of voices but my heart bled as I thought about the young girl who doesn’t have a strong conviction about sex before marriage and satan would just use those little words to tip her over the edge into sexual immorality.
My heart bled as I remembered also watching a scene in “empire” with my sister where a gay cuddling session was made to seem so normal.
And I told my sister, “see these stuff you watch, they change your psyche! These people know what they are doing!
They fix these things in films, fix them in songs and ultimately serve to tip unsuspecting guys over the edge”.
If you still haven’t gotten the point, satan is on a massive strategy to use the media to pull souls his way!
I thank God for grace to chose the spiritual things over the physical.
Based on my sexual history, I understand how a sexual sin can be used by satan to torment my mind so I basically stay off of lots of movies except the movie is clean and I can learn something from it.
Apart from that reason also, God has told me that where He is taking me to, worldly songs, movies and stuff isn’t what will sustain me… they will simply be distractions through and through that will pull me from my walk in purpose.
So basically I am not someone who’s in line with the current trends in songs, movies and all… and the little times I do get to peep in, I seem like a weird one because I do not not know the people jumping and shouting to the beats and all on TV and that’s okay.
What my shying away from worldly stuff has also done is that it has made me someone who easily picks out stuff that satan embeds in these things when I see them.
If I bump into a Nigerian hit song video, I see the bom bom and cars and money and my heart bleeds for the little girl and little boy who would automatically think that that is all there is to life.
Most persons who are wrapped in this lifestyle may not see these things but spend two weeks off of them in the Bible and in lots of prayers and then watch just one worldly music video and your spirit will be very much on an all time unrest at what you see.
So my last night peep at the Grammy awards opened my eyes to just how much God needs us – His people to sow His word in the media!
Can you imagine a Christian lady with so much influence over millions and from the way she dresses, to how she speaks to what she reads, her fans copy her?
What would we have if we have such a lady sowing God’s word on her social media pages, on TV, on radio… letting everyone know that God is the one who has made her who she is?
Can you imagine having such a lady who shares her Word for the day from her quiet time to her millions of fans?
What would we have in the world then?
We’d have young ones who are confused being thrown into the right path just from this Christian lady’s influence on their lives.
I read Kindredgrace.com (one of my favorite sites on godly relationships and marriage) last week and it just popped in my mind on how God is taking over the online world for Him.
Forget what you see now, even with all these, even much more so would God’s Word and truth spread to all.
But God needs us to step up and be His hands and feet in this.
You are a Christian but why are you using your blog for just gossip and fashion?
Even if that is your major niche, I am certain that God has led you to share His word on your blog before… did you share it or did you shut the Spirit’s voice down?
I’m sorry but the blog you opened can do so much more for Christ!
Your writing gift can do so much more for Jesus!
Jesus is taking over the online world… He is sowing His word in lives through facebook, instagram, twitter…He is trumping satan hands down in the media… but He needs us to arise and be His instrument in this.
Think about the young souls who are being misled.
All those seemingly harmless quotes they make on “she says I should be a provider as her husband, am I an Atm card?”
Those are seeds being sown… satan is even attacking the family system God has placed on earth.
He is confusing men and women on what being a husband and wife really means… but you are married and God has taught you His truth on this, but you’d rather share sweet pictures of you and your boo and tag them rather than share God’s truth on biblical marriages.
Because you are scared?
Because you are shy?
Because you are afraid of what really?
I just really want us to see that satan is using the media to plant evil seeds in people’s lives..
He is drawing souls into hell every single day!
Your one post on premarital sex being a sin and not right for a Christian can save a life.
Your one post on what it really means to love your husband can save a marriage.
Your one post on where God stands on gay and lesbian issues can redeem someone from that trap.
Please use your gift of writing and blog for Jesus!
His heart bleeds at souls that are perishing… we might not go out to evangelize but we can evangelize with our pens… in the place where God has placed us.
Dear fellow Christian writer/blogger, will you let God take over the online world with you as His hands and feet?
I hope that you’ll say yes and make changes to do that from this day.
God needs us to arise.
He is counting on us as laborers to reap the harvest.
Please let the excuses go and let’s lift Jesus high on social media/our blogs/our radio/television presence, etc. Etc.
God help us and strengthen us with His grace… amen!
