    Thought For Today: Entertainment!

    Is this the form of "apple" the serpent is using today? In the garden of Eden, the serpent tempted Eve to eat of the fruit of that tree of the knowledge of good and evil that God expressly forbade Adam to eat. The serpent made that fruit appear harmless and appealing and desirable. Yet, the eating of this fruit has caused immeasurable suffering and death throughout the history of mankind on earth.

    Today, it seems to me, that this new TREE the serpent is luring mankind to and selling as "harmless", "appealing", "desirable", to make one wise, are movies and other forms of ENTERTAINMENT. And Christians flock to the movie houses by the millions, oblivious to the inherent dangers being promoted by the vast majority of these "messengers of falsehood".

    I know that many will read this post and object to what I am pointing out but I ask you to hear me out. First, can anyone truly picture Jesus walking into a movie theater for any reason at all or just to "kill time" by relaxing and watching a movie named after one of those He saved from the judgment of the flood?

    If you haven't read this yet, I have posted references to these verses numerous times on my wall. That is the verses of what the church, as individuals, should look like according to God as written by the hand of His servant, Isaiah the prophet.
    Isaiah 58:13-14
    13 “If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath,
    From doing your pleasure on My holy day,
    And call the Sabbath a delight,
    The holy day of the Lord honorable,
    And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways,
    Nor finding your own pleasure,
    Nor speaking your own words,
    14 Then you shall delight yourself in the Lord;
    And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth,
    And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.
    The mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
    Since JESUS is our Sabbath or REST, then to take delight in Him is to HONOR HIM by not seeking our own PLEASURE. It comes down to this, do you wish to seek your pleasures offered by this corrupt world which is passing away or will you store up your treasure in heaven that is incorruptible?!? Too many seek the pleasures offered by this corrupt world and world system and our adversary will keep right on telling us that there is no real harm in taking a break from time to time to relax and watch movies produced by his children.

    "What harm can come from this! It is innocent after all! God's not going to judge you for a little rest and relaxation, will He? If He does, then He is an unrighteous judge! Only stuck up, judgmental and religious bigots will say this is evil! These religious bigots just want to shove their self-righteousness down your throat! You don't have to listen to them, even the pastor goes to the movies and tells you about them later!"

    Ever hear any of these justifications before, whether out of the mouth of some or in your own thoughts? These are not the words or thoughts given to you by Holy Spirit whose task is to lead you and guide you into the truths that make you free from the bondages of sin and death. If these are not the words from God, then where do you suppose they come from?

    "Yet, My people choose to eat from a table prepared for them by that enemy of their lives and do not know, do not realize, how they have played right back into the hands of the one that has kept them in bondage all those years before they came to Me", says the Lord. "Foolish children! Unwise, unrepentant and full of iniquity!" How do you think you can escape when you willingly turn away from Me and return to your vomit! Don't you know that I will spew you out of My mouth!?!" says the Lord your God.
    Revelation 2:4-5 Amplified Bible (AMP)
    4 But I have this [one charge to make] against you: that you have left (abandoned) the love that you had at first [you have deserted Me, your first love].
    5 Remember then from what heights you have fallen. Repent (change the inner man to meet God’s will) and do the works you did previously [when first you knew the Lord], or else I will visit you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you change your mind and repent.

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.
