Worldly Distractions

Losing sight through the worldly distractions is a tool of the devil.

We are seeing this happen daily in our country. This is designed to take your focus off of God and the Mission Jesus put you on. Look over here while something else is going on over there.

 As the time of Jesus’s coming gets closer, the distractions will become more frequent. The devil knows he is running out of time. He is going to try to destroy marriages, separate families, put brother against brother, sister against sister, and kids against parents. He will use every tactic that this world has to offer: greed, lust, envy, power, lies, division, social media, politics, pandemic’s. You name he will try to use it. 

Unless you know the Bible, and I mean know it in your heart, not just what the words say, even the devil knows the words. Unless you apply this book to your everyday life you will be subject to the devil’s destruction. (Ephesians 6:10) Put on the Full Armor of God.

More Distractions

  • Gas prices, inflation, CRT, The Border, abortion, The supply Chain, Transgender. While it is important to pay attention, too many people are turning all their energy towards worldly issues ahead of seeking God first. God wants us to fulfill His mission, the one he sent his Son to tell us about. Save People, Change Hearts, Turn to God and Pray in all situations.
  • The closer you get to God, the further you get away from sin.
  • Don’t waste your time trying to change minds, change hearts and let God do the rest.
  • Start with God, not with social media!

Notes I took from our Pastor’s message on July 4th

  • Our nation was founded on God and Godly principles. Don’t let society tell you otherwise. “One Nation under God”.
  • George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Ben Franklin, and many other founders all invoked God! They didn’t advocate for our country to exist separate from him. Thomas Jefferson started prayer in Schools; George Washington is quoted saying, “Learn all you can about the ways of Jesus.”
  • Separation of Church and State is a lie! It was a letter written to the Danbury Baptist Church from Thomas Jefferson assuring there would not be a State-run church that ruled over all churches. (Like Russia or China has now)
  • The State should not influence the Church, but the Church should influence the state. Our founders understood, absent of God, our nation would collapse from all the sins we now are seeing.
  • The Washington Monument (The center of our government) has God inscribed on it; 1st Holiness to the Lord 2nd In God we Trust 3rd Search the scriptures. Hidden are the words Laus Deo = Praise be to God. Does this seem to be a government that wanted to rid its land of God?
  • In the 1960’s The Supreme Court removed prayer from schools. Our morals have been on a steady decline ever since.
  • In the 1980’s they removed the Ten Commandments from schools and court houses. Claiming The separation of Church and state. This is a lie.
  • We kicked God out of our government, our schools, and our way of life, and now people are surprised by the consequences!
  • How to Heal! God showed us the way. (2 Chronicles 7:14) – Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from Heaven and I will forgive their sins and restore their land. We need Revival! Not distractions! This is God’s promise. God’s plan.
  • Turn from your sins (Repent). When times are good, we drift from God, and think we don’t need him. But when trials come, we run to him. Draw near always, repent, and pray. ALWAYS!
  • To repent you first must know the Word. To obey God you must know the Word. If not, where will you get your direction? Hollywood, Sports Figures, Entertainers! This is what’s happening.
