I was born back in 1956. Back then, technology was a black and white TV and a gramophone record player with an inbuilt radio. Rock n' roll was in its early stages. TV was also in its infant phase with only two channels, BBC 1 and BBC 2 which showed innocent series such as Hancock's half-hour and The Billy Cotton Band Show. Telephones were available back then but we couldn't afford one.
A year later the space race began when the Russians, much, to everyone's surprise, launched Sputnik 1 months before the Americans launched their first rocket, Explorer 1, on Jan. 31, 1958. We had entered the modern era.
Sixty-two years later, a mission to Mars is being planned and NASA has promised to return to the moon. Next year space travel is said to become available to space-tourists. We carry around a device which we can access almost every book that was ever written, almost every film or TV show and almost every radio channel. We can talk to people anywhere in the world live on facetime or Zoom and it costs nothing. However, this device is only a little bigger than the palm of your hand and fits easily in our pocket.
Back home we have flatscreen high definition televisions in most rooms. These TV's have hundreds of channels, however, if that is not enough we also have Netflix which allows us to access hundreds more movies and series. Even more gadgets, laptops, tablets and PC's allows us to stream or download thousands more TV shows, films and videos. Pornography and violence are readily available and is pushed into our faces 24/7.
But how could this have happened in such a short time?
Contrary to what we are told when we are young, the devil does not reign down below in hell, that is his deception, he wants us to believe he is below under the ground in his place of eternal flame but he is not, he is in fact in the ether, in the air. He is actually among us and is called the Prince of the Power of the Air.
The following is an excerpt from Ephesians 2.
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, (the devil) of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
And again in Ephesians 6.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
In just 60 years the devil has cleverly outsmarted our society and replaced the innocence of Hancock's half-hour and The Billy Cotton Band Show with a diet of sex, violence and magic. Rock n' roll has been replaced by foul-mouthed rappers singing about rape and murder. Homosexuality has been introduced onto our screens seamlessly, music and dance videos are often deemed pornographic as young girls gyrate and dance to music in an obscene way.
5G the next level
We are on the verge of increasing his power, 5G will bring him into the next level.
Video games are teaching kids and adults to be killers. I ask you to take a look at your Facebook or Twitter feed recently and see just how much hate is some of those posts or videos, the anger and hate is astonishing. Much of the hate and violence is now spreading onto the streets. Civil unrest is boiling overall around the world as our planet is clearly reeling from the violence we are witnessing every day. And the nasty covid-19, which is itself air born is the devil behind that too? Why not, he wants us all dead so, why not!
The power of the devil
What has happened in the US this year in the first ten months of 2020 is nothing short of astonishing, they have gone from being the world number one superpower to laughing stock in less than a year! Other countries will follow, the UK, France, Spain and Germany have all seen civil unrest this year, even Russia and China have seen civil decent, no country will escape.
2020 has been a terrible year and many believe, I included, the terrible times will intensify as we approach the tribulation period. If there was ever a time for you to get yourself close to the love of Jesus it is now. Stay safe folks.
