TEXT: ISAIAH 5: 11-12
11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!12 And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands.
Key Verse: 1 Peter 4: 3-4. “3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:”
Generally, youths are characterized by wanton lusts, licentiousness, insolence, filthy and immorality. These render youths defenseless in the face of attack by evil spirits. Lust for the pleasures of this
world. When you seek the pleasures of this world, you are seeking honor not of God but of yourself and man, thereby leaving the gate of your life wide open for evil spirit infestation. The lust for the pleasures of this world leads youths into various habits such as: Drug addiction; cocaine, heroin, marijuana, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol or strong drinks, etc. all these evil habits are ways youths are being infested with evil spirit (Proverbs 31:4, Isaiah 5:22).
Some youths are crazy about fashion. They tend to wear rags in the name of fashion even if it means going naked or wearing skimpy clothes that expose their cleavage, not minding where the fashions originate from. Most of these fashions originate from the pit of hell. Again, most youths do not bother to know where strange hair styles are actually from. I saw some boys carrying on them what looks like coffin on their head in the name of hair style. These hair styles are the designs of evil spirits and when you carry them on your head invariably what you are carrying is evil spirit.
Furthermore, immorality is a common lifestyle prevalent among youths. By immorality I mean fornication, bisexuality, homosexuality, lesbianism, oral sex, immoral touches, use of obscene languages, etc all these are worse than grave clothes by these lifestyles a youth's destiny is brought to a piece of bread (Prov. 6:25-28). Immorality is a gateway through which evil spirit infest the youths.
Thought for the day:
Immorality and drug abuse are gateways...
Song for the day:
Praise the Lord, my spirit, soul and body
Bible reading for the day:
Genesis 49-50; Matthew 15:1-20
