In terms of moral temptation, we’re all in the same boat. All of us are prone to moral sins, and the media makes such sinning easy. And let’s explode more myths about who is vulnerable to the power of the internet.

Jeremiah lamented, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick.” In the internet age it’s no surprise that immorality is rampant.  How can Christians protect themselves from the media onslaught shouting from their online devices and TVs?

The word of God warns us to stay away from places that put us at risk of moral failure. Once, that meant “don’t buy a pornographic magazine.” Now it means “avoid that explicit website.” The forces of evil want your heart, and let’s learn more about this titanic battle.

It’s been said that America will fall, not by the guns of its enemies, but by the moral rot of its citizens. The more we’re “online,” the more we see perversity and immorality. Here is a call to engage those who use the internet and other forms of media which enslave us.

Jeremiah says we need to be like trees planted by water, with deep roots. These kinds of trees bear much fruit, and so should we as believers who display the Spirit’s fruit. This is a key component of being ready for times of deprivation.

When calamity strikes, you need a support system. The prophet Jeremiah compares this to being like a tree next to a stream, drawing nourishment that can survive a drought. This means connecting with fellow believers so that we all can bear fruit.

There comes a time in the decline of a nation that God will no longer delay judgment. America may be at that point. When economic and social calamity strikes, believers are in the mess with everyone else. Let’s look for guidance to an Old Testament prophet who saw times like ours coming.

The great tribulation is the time of Satan’s rage. He wants one last chance to wreak havoc before facing doom and one last chance to destroy the faith of those still alive who believe in Jesus. So how can we overcome our mortal enemy - the devil?
August 30, 2016
In Revelation, the future Antichrist forces the whole world to worship him using military and economic pressure. Without his mark, no one can buy or sell. Could any of us maintain our faith in Jesus during a time like this, when it’s worship the beast or suffer?  
August 29, 2016
The Bible tells of a future Antichrist who deceives the world into worshipping him. Those living at this time will face almost certain death unless they comply. Even now, believers face execution in many parts of the world. Could your faith survive in the face of oppression like this?
