Luke 10:18 - And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning."
Revelations 12:12 - "For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time."
That time is drawing near. And it is quite obvious that since the time approaches the devil has begun to panic. We know in open combat the devil has no real chance of defeating Yah. He tried once, and was cast out of heaven. Defeated. So what can he do to wage war against Yah? How can he hurt Yah? By causing the children whom Yah loves to openly, knowingly sin....
Luke 19:41 - "When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it,"
What made Yahushua weep? The sins of the people who inhabited Jerusalem.
That is the only weapon the devil has. Sin. Now ask yourselves what the hell has happened to our society in the last 30 years! Every kind of sin has been magnified times a thousand. What was steady the same level of evil, has in the last 30 years been intensified to unknown heights....
Compare Music from the 1970's to music today. Can you believe old timers used to say Elvis type rock and roll is the devil's music? Maybe it is, and maybe it helped open doors for today's music. But the thing is Elvis never sang about slapping women or pimping women. There is a level of violence in music today that is shocking. Artists and recording companies hide behind the constitution and call what they are doing art, and it's their right to make this "art" because of freedom of speech. Music undoubtedly influences people. There is no question. Don't be surprised that violent crimes, and gang activity has increased in spades since this type of music has been released. It obvious that it is an attempt to brainwash kids, and soften them up for evil activity. Its clear that if a kid wants to be like his favorite rapper he has to get rid of ideas of respect for his neighbor, women, and has to hold money in the highest esteem contradictory to what the scriptures teach.
Look at television and movies..Is there any debate they have grown more wicked in the last 30 years? Mainstream movies, and television often mock Yah. The don't understand that Yah will not be mocked. There is no respect. Even if they don't believe wouldn't secular humanist code at least demand that all are respected? Well we who follow the Way are not respected. If you can stomach it watch an episode of family guy or south park. In south park there is actually a character who is supposed to be Yahushua who acts like a buffoon. 30 years ago there is no way that would have aired. But many young kids love, and are influenced by that program..
Consider porn in the 70's. Its porn and its bad, but it is nothing compared to the porn of today. The insane, unnatural acts committed are so demeaning to women. Its teaching us to not love women the way intended. Its giving men unrealistic views of sex. It destroys marriages, and lives. A quick online search will reveal 100's of destroyed lives of porn actors, actresses, and addicts of porn.
Look around and see the lack of real love and compassion in the world. Understand the world is set up to where if you want to be "cool" you have to do acts that are not pleasing to YHWH. Being cool equals being bad. That's how its set up. The devil is in a panic, and it really has begun to show in the last 30 or so years.
Joshua 24:15 - "If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve YHWH, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve YHWH."
