Be sober, be vigilant: 

Media distraction changes your beliefs

Acts 2:36

36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.


Remember, in days long ago righteous Lot was vexed (oppressed) by seeing and hearing the lawless deeds of the wicked. His soul was crossdress 1tormented as he “tuned in,” so to speak, to the media broadcasts of Sodom on a daily basis. What we see and hear can have great power over us. This is why the media is so important.

The scriptural answer is to keep our eyes upon Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Being both Lord and Christ, God has put all things under Him, the New Man. Though we do not yet see all things under Him, we do see Him. We must settle this issue; He is the One and Only Mediator between God and men! 

Genesis 6:4

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

[T]he present day media broadcasts make us question our faith in the all-loving Creator (Father God) of the Bible, His Son Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit. Through the promotion of what is called “alternative lifestyles,” we are made to view ourselves as grasshoppers among giants. This is the ancient strategy of the wicked one that IMG_3203has been at work among us since the days of the Garden of Eden. The enemy used it against the first man and woman, against Old Testament Israel, and is still using it today against the New Testament church.

As we have seen, the Scripture is clear. There were giants in the earth in Noah’s day and also afterward. I am convinced that the same type of angelic interference in the affairs of men is still going on today. All throughout our media-addicted world there are people of great stature with the power to influence and control masses of people. They are not nine feet tall, but our own words about them betray us. We call them “superstars.”

2 Corinthians 11:14

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

These superstars have a status and influence such as the world has never seen. Some of them exercise more power and authority over the masses of IMG_3518people than the kings and rulers of the ancient empires of history ever did. Their gigantic stature is created and sustained by the use (mis-use) of the media.

The images of these “celebrities” are designed to control our lives. We are
tricked into celebrating their lives, not our own, nor of the One Mediator between the Creator and His creation. This all happens because we fix our eyes upon them and become, like ancient Israel, grasshoppers in our own sight.

Hebrews 12:2

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
