In the world today of politics, social media, entertainment and a plethora of various cultural organizations and movements; it is so easy to become distracted from what the bigger picture in which our Lord Jesus revealed unto us. During Jesus time on earth he spoke of many things to come, his apostles by the unction of the Holy Spirit continued that revelation.
In the last year or more, I have noticed that more and more there is a spirit of distraction that is running rampant throughout the earth; and most notably in the Church. The spirit of distraction, is taking everyones eyes focus off what is truly going on in the world. Many think their eyes and ears are opened because they have take up with one misguided cause or another; while these said causes are backed by powerful men and women who are directing an agenda. This agenda is to create an atmosphere of chaos, turmoil and instability in the nations of the world, to bring forth the final government that shall rule all nations.
While these movers and shakers of Satan’s kingdom is laser focused on their goal, the Body of Christ has been woefully deflected, and has been engaged in battle from the wrong field. We have been fighting the world, which is controlled by Satan and his ilk, with the weapons of the world; and have forgotten that we are not of this world, but the Kingdom of The Almighty God and have a power that is not based in the carnal.
I understand the people who do not know Jesus Christ being distracted by these social issues, political celebrities, social media etc., but the Body of Christ?! Why have we become so unfocused when Jesus plainly stated that we are not of this world. He spoke explicitly about stay focused and becoming distracted by this world. We have become so wrapped in the politics of the prince of this world, that we forgot about, the new world the Prince of Peace, King of kings will bring. We have taken our eyes off the Kingdom of our Heavenly Father. And because we choose to put more energy, time, and thought for this world, we have become distracted from the bigger picture, we are not ready to stand against the greatest deception of all.
The spirit of Distraction works as such; to keep you preoccupied so that you will not do what you need to do in order to fulfill a certain goal; thereby leaving you open for attack and unprepared to face the challenges that life brings. Distraction comes in many forms in our lives, but never before has this spirit been as strong as it is today. It is literally on a global scale. And the voices that are in the world today are redirecting the minds, hearts, eyes and ears of the people en masse.
Jesus, speaking to the crowd about the four kinds of soil, and later telling his disciplines the meaning of this parable says:
Luk 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
Luk 8:12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
Luk 8:13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
Luk 8:14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
Luk 8:15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
In verses 8:12-14; the word was stolen by the devil so the people could not be saved, or the word taken by distraction via temptation and lastly the cares, riches and pleasures of this life; all of which leads to a falling away from the truth and salvation. This is what is being accomplished today…in the Church! The people hear the word, but because of the love of this world they are not about to stand in the hour of testing that is coming to this world, to prove and test and to separate the people in this world as for the Lord of for the coming Anti-Christ.
This is the bigger picture, this is what is happening now! These so called seven mountains ( Education, Religion, Family, Business, Government, Entertainment, Media) that these preachers claim we are supposed to be taking over are the very mountains ruled by Satan and that are used to create the climate for the arrival of his hell-appointed messiah, and to unleash the wrath of his anger upon those who are the children of the promise of Jesus Christ. This is not our world, our is to come. We must occupy, and prepare for the battle to come.
