With this blog it try to share information for people who are searching for truth. Most of the subjects are related to the Bible one way or another, because i believe that what is described in this book is the true. It is pointing to the Way, the Truth and the Life – Jesus.
In Psalms 73 – and many other places in the Bible you find things that relate to how and why are things happening as the are. The following about the prosperity of the wicked, but that this is not good: it is only good to draw near to God:
Psalm 73 King James Version (KJV)
1Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. 2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. 3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm. 5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men. 6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment. 7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish. 8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily. 9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth. 10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them. 11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? 12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. 13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency. 14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. 15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children. 16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; 17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end. 18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction. 19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors. 20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image. 21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins. 22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee. 23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. 24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. 25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. 26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. 27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. 28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.
One of Rihanna’s hits was the song Disturbia. In the video Rihanna and her dancers are depicted suffering from demon possession. It is a real occurrence described detailed in many Biblical accounts. Demons, also known as unclean spirits in the, have no bodies and use the bodies of people as habitations.
Here some of the lyrics:
What’s wrong with me?
Why do I feel like this?
I’m going crazy now
No more gas, in the red, can’t even get it started
Nothing heard, nothing said, can’t even speak about it
On my life, on my head, don’t wanna think about it
Feels like I’m going insane, yeah
It’s a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind, it can control you
It’s too close for comfort
Release me from this curse I’m in
Trying to maintain but I’m struggling
If you can’t go-o-o
I think I’m gonna ah, ah, ah, ah
The “disease of the mind” that is a “curse” in the song is demon possession. And dabbling in the occult, witchcraft or listening to demonic music can invite these forces into one’s life. Spirits can move unseen. During Jesus time on Earth, demonic activity was rampant and He demonstrated His power over them:
And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.” – Matthew 8:28-32
”And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God?”
Not only do the demons fear Jesus, they know exactly who He is. It is through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, that one can gain victory over demonic influence.
The Son of God has already won freedom from sin and eternal life for all of those who believe in Him. By Jesus dying on the cross and rising back to life, He took the punishment for humanity allowing us to have the chance to escape hell if we believe in Him.
It all comes down to what you choose choice. We choose to sin. We choose to rebel. We choose to elevate celebrities to godlike status and let Satan delude us into thinking we can behave however we want with no fear of God. We must choose to recognize our sin and seek forgiveness from the real and true God who is in Heaven. And for those who are Christians, repent of supporting this sinful music and turn to the ways of God.
