TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 10/6
“Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man.” – 1 Samuel 10:6
The Lord sent His Holy Spirit to indwell you and to declare your incredible identity, purpose, and destiny. He turned you into “another man” who will bring heaven to earth, comfort and encourage those in need, and prophesy His Kingdom come. You are a bad motor scooter!
Declaration: I’m all the Lord has made me to be. I will prophesy and testify of Jesus, and I will not hold back.
The “god” of Technology
Aren’t you glad we have all this technology and we didn’t have to come up with any of it? We get to just be partakers of it. My goodness, what we now can do with all kinds of technology is something else.
Y’all, I have so many apps on my phone – I have star apps to help me locate all the constellations and tell me how far away the stars are from each other. I have several amazing weather apps. And, I bet you didn’t know that just about every Sunday when I am preaching at the pulpit, I am also smoking a brisket using my phone. It’s hooked up to my smoker so at any time, I can read the exact temperature of my brisket.
Technology allows us to do amazing things. I can talk to friends and track things all over the world. When a plane flies over, I know exactly what that plane is because I even have plane trackers on my phone.
I love my phone, but this little blessing of technology is also a place where other gods exist that I shall not serve. It is up to each one of us to daily decide if we will serve other gods.
You may think – what’s a little bit of pornography? It never bothered anybody or hurt anything. It’s point, click, nobody will ever know. Look, you better grow up. When you watch porn, you’re watching a crime scene. It’s true. You have a choice to make each time you pick up that little device. The choices you make with technology will either bless the LORD or repulse Him. No click is innocent. No click goes unnoticed by King Jesus.
Every click is a door–a gateway opened–giving something full access to your device, your eye gates, ears, mouth and potentially your entire life. Friends, I am not just talking about the lust-filled clicks of pornography, which are a known gateway to hell. The Bible teaches us that no thought or spoken word goes unchecked by the LORD.
“The eye is the lamp of the body; so if your eye is clear [spiritually perceptive], your whole body will be full of light[benefiting from God’s precepts]. But if your eye is bad [spiritually blind], your whole body will be full of darkness [devoid of God’s precepts]. So if the [very] light inside you [your inner self, your heart, your conscience] is darkness, how great and terrible is that darkness!” – Matthew 6: 22-23
What you fix your eyes on becomes your focus. Today is a good day to observe your technology usage. Are your clicks filling your eye and ear gates with God’s glory or the enemy’s darkness?
