Protect Yourself at All Times!

Yesterday, I got to see a dear friend of mine I hadn't seen in awhile. He seems to be doing very well he is an outspoken Christian and the Lord has big plans for him to do battle on the college front. Though he is not perfect I am so exited to see what God's is going to do in his life. I'm always talking to him about warfare. And I've really been trying to help him understand how the enemy is working. Sometimes the enemy works in covert ways undercover, in the dark because I what he's doing is seen his plan may be thwated. (Though truthfully I doesn't matter because I'm sure the Lord protect us from his schemes whether we see them or not) Other times he works overtly; boldly, openly and publicly mocking God and his people effort to win the lost. Towards the end of our conversation he informed me that he was going with a friend to see the new Harry Potter movie. Now, I don't know the facts about the author maybe someone can school me on her. I don't know whether the spells in the book are real spells but what I do know is what's in the book. And how the enemy is seeking to use this popular book series to stear the hearts and minds of the people of earth further and further into rebellion against God.
  • The Harry Potter series is about a young boy who goes to a school of wizardry. (witchcraft)
  • The books get more and more violent as the story progresses. (Frog in boiling water)
  • And I spoil the ending for any of you who just can't let go until you know the end. Harry lives and kills the bad guy. (sacastic: yeah)
The fact is whether there's spell in the book are not. We as follower of God can not condone sin. The Bible specifically mentions witchcraft as something a man (or woman) of God should have nothing to do with. For example: Deuteronomy 18:9-14
"When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not imitate the destable customs of those nations. No one is to make his son or daughter pass through fire, practice divination, tell fortunes, interpret omens, practice socery, cast spells, consult a medium or a familiar spirit, or inquire of the dead. Everyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord, and the Lord your God is driving out the nations before you because of these detestable things. You must be blameless before the Lord your God. Though these nations you are about to drive out listen to fortune-tellers and diviners, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do this."

Of course I know someone will say. But I'm not doing any of that stuff what is the harm in just watching it. I'm sure there's a few wicked sites on the internet you wouldn't visit with that rationalization. The fact is the word says: "have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness." (Eph 5:11) So if you wanna have a nice clean life, stay away from wicked things. Protect yourself at ALL TIMES!
