EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"
1 Peter 5:8
Today's study is from the revelation Jesus gave to Sister Finda of Sierra Leone.
“Again I saw people sitting on the internet cyber café. I was shocked because it is just a means of communication to us humans.
I said, 'Why do people go to hell or fail to make rapture because of the internet?' He laughed again; he laughed and the laughter was with echo, then he said, 'Internet is a means of taking your attention from God.'
I was shocked, i was cold and then I said, "What has the internet got to do with the Bible?" He said, "I made it, I did it so it can confuse you and take your mind away from Christ."
He showed me youths, they looked like Philippines, they were not black, and I saw white youth. They were sitting, large crowd of them but they were quiet, they were crying. I said, "Why are you people crying, why didn't you make the rapture?"
One of the young people said, "Because of the internet." I asked, "How?" He said, "We are Christians, we are born again Christians, we profess to love Jesus, but when we communicate through the Facebook, the words we say are not Christian words, the pictures we post are not Christian pictures, we want to be like people of the world, so we compete with them over the internet."
"We go to pornographic sites, we watched things that we were not supposed to watch as Christians; we did things that people could not know we were doing them; we did them over the internet, that is why we could not make the rapture.” They were conscious, they were crying.
I saw a man of God; he was using his laptop to preach but he did not make the rapture. I was shocked, I said, “But you preach over the internet, preaching is preaching. You preach over the internet people read and they get saved.” He said, “I did not make rapture because I was ashamed to carry the physical bible that is why I was preaching over the internet because nobody will see me there. I only preach and they get saved."
"Every time I want to do evangelism I do it through the internet, I satisfied my conscience that I was preaching the gospel but now I did not make the rapture. Why I was doing this was because I was ashamed to carry the physical Bible and go outside the street to preach.” He said, “I was only using my laptop and still I did not make rapture.” I burst into tears.
Thought For The Day:
Say “No” to abuse and misuse of internet.
Song For The Day:
When I remember what the Lord has done, I will never go back anymore
