The Devil Made Me Do It! Part 16: “As The World (of Politics) Turns”

To read the first part of this topic, go here…October 13th (The Devil Made Me Do It!)

.

.

Our society loves its soap operas!

.

Is that a fair statement?

.

And each day brings a brand new episode in the lives of those imaginary characters.

.

And no doubt, many or perhaps most regular viewers are happily addicted to their favorite soap opera.

LUCIFER, “THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

2nd Corinthians 4:4

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

Of course, Christians understand that this world is ruled over by, “the god of this world”, Satan, who once walked the hallowed halls of Heaven, prior to his rebellion.

.

But now this powerful fallen angel has been cast down to this earth along with his fellow rebels, becoming the unseen dominate force behind all the misery and evil which enshrouds this selfish world.

.

And so, these unseen rulers have made it their sole purpose to deceive and destroy each and every human who has ever lived on this fallen planet!

“AS THE WORLD (of politics) TURNS”

.

Now, there is another soap opera of sorts, which has been airing each and every day: it’s called “the world of politics.”

.

Yes, if the reader hasn’t noticed, this has become a daily drama, which is every bit as addictive as television soap operas. Maybe even more so, since it deals with actual real-life occurrences!

.

Every day is a fresh new episode in which the two major political factions carry on their emotional dealings (and double-dealings) with one-another.

POLITICAL FOOTBALL GAME?

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Super_Bowl_XLIII_-_Thunderbirds_Flyover_-_Feb_1_2009.jpg

Oh yes, perhaps rather than a soap opera, you might call today’s politics a ‘war’ or even ‘a political football game’!

.

But whatever analogy one uses to describe this daily drama, it nevertheless is what one political commentator described as, “The greatest show on earth: two scorpions in a…glass!”

.

Yes, there’s nothing like watching two opposing groups battling against each other!

“TAKE HEED…LEST…YOUR HEARTS BE OVERCHARGED WITH…THE CARES OF THIS LIFE…”

Luke 21:34

.

But for those who understand that this present world is ruled over by Lucifer, now called “Satan” and, “the god of this world”, this daily drama is just one more way to misdirect people away from the true focus of life: the Salvation of the soul!

In other words, the one thing that Satan cannot tolerate is to see people filling their hearts with the Bible knowledge of Jesus Christ.

.

And so, Satan has created this current-day world to become a cornucopia of pleasures and pursuits which distract and deter this world’s inhabitants away from the greatest pursuit in the universe: the Salvation of their own soul!

SATAN, THE GREAT PUPPET-MASTER

.

So we should not be ignorant of Satan’s devices. And this relatively new voyeur-sport of politics is not happening by whim-or-caprice.

.

No, but rather, “the god of this world” is carefully orchestrating the daily events to keep society fixated on this ongoing daily melodrama.

.

And Satan plays each side against the other, much like the puppet-master that he is! One week he gives a bump to one side, and the next week he bumps the other side, just to keep all sides cheering for their “team”!

.

And let’s face it, soap operas were not really possible until this current-day high-tech era in which one can simply turn on the radio or television and tune in to see what new development that each passing day brings.

“HE THAT STOPS HIS EARS…AND SHUTS HIS EYES FROM…EVIL”

Isaiah 33:15

.

Now, seeing that all these events are not happening by mere chance, but are being carefully orchestrated by the Enemy of Souls, it should repulse us to the point that we turn away from these hate-filled assaults on our souls, out of disgust and fear! 

.

After all, isn’t our great purpose in life to become filled with love of Christ?

“I WILL SET NO WICKED THING BEFORE MY EYES”

Psalms 101:3 

.

But this new daily soap opera of politics is not only designed to distract us from the self-purification of our soul, but is also created to fill our hearts with hate and rage and disdain for others!

.

Listen to 1st Corinthians 15:33…“Be not deceived! Evil communications corrupts good manners (character)!” 

.

Yes, whatever we expose ourselves to is going to leave an indelible mark upon our heart.

“HE BROUGHT ME UP…OUT OF THE MIRY CLAY”

Psalms 40:2 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpg

.

And so, if we find ourselves addicted to some daily soap opera, sports game, or whatever other personal distraction one can pursue, we must continue to beg and plead for deliverance!

WOMAN ROTATES THROUGH THE SEASONS…

star-chart ursa major summerr

.

This page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies.

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
