Don’t Hate Me For This

Gen 6:6  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 

Gen 6:5  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 

Pro 23:7  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. 

I talked last week about our thoughts.  I want to expound on those thoughts and bring more clarity to what I believe the above verses are talking about.

God destroyed the earth and everyone that lived on it because every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  The following are some thoughts on this verse:

1. Every imagination is very important to God.  I believe the imagination is dealing with our entertainment.  I like Star Trek: The Next Generation T.V. Show.  I like science and the possibilities that it can bring.  I like outer space and the immensity of it.  Star Trek would fit in the category of my imagination.  I do realize that the show has finished making new episodes a long time ago, but  it is a good illustration.

2. Of the thoughts of his heart: this is what goes on inside us that no one can see…except God.

3. Only evil continually:  This means that wickedness is what ruled on their imagination…all the time.  I believe their entertainment may have started out simple to them, but before they knew it, their thoughts progressed into an “all-the-time” evil occurrence.

OK, OK so what am I getting at?  Here it is, the jelly on the bottom shelf.  If a real, live witch came up to you and asked you to participate in witch craft, would you do it?  Probably not, right?  Well, we may not think so, but when we watch that kind of stuff on TV, Movies, or in our video games and do nothing about it, we are participating with them in their evil.  YOU’RE Crazy!!  I know you may think that about me, but I will tell you that God did not destroy the earth and every man and beast in it because of evil actions, He did it because of  evil thoughts and imaginations.  When someone watches a movie about vampires, werewolves, and black magic like David Blane and they do nothing to turn it off or denounce it, then they are partakers with them.  They might as well have done it in front of you.

When you watch a movie, do you ever talk about it later?  Probably.  When someone watches a “love story” (blah!!!) about a shape-changing werewolf / man, do you think about it later…yes?  I am not perfect.  I am not trying to throw a stone at anyone.  I do not even know who will read this.  I am trying to sound a warning to everyone that reads this about how crafty and sly the devil is.  Remember, satan got Adam and Eve to sin in a perfect environment.  He is very good at his craft.  Please do not be fooled by Him.  I hope you take this as a sincere warning from me to you…whomever you are that needs this.
