"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." 2 Corinthians 11:14
The other day someone was at my house and they brought up the subject of the book/movie, "Twilight". They really "love" it. I told them that it was demonic. They contended that it was not. Well, I held my ground and continually answered their insistence that it wasn't bad with the truth- it is demonic!
I was concerned, but not surprised that this person felt that way because they aren't living the Christian life by following Jesus, therefore, they are not discerning. What does surprise, and alarm me, is the number of Christians, even Spirit-baptized ones, who don't see anything wrong with "Twilight", "Harry Potter", etc. They even come to their defense and try to persuade you that there is nothing wrong with them- even to the point of "spiritualizing" it. (Well, it is spiritual- demonic spirits!)
Why am I so alarmed? Because it is blatantly obvious that these movies/books are demonic! And if Christians are falling for the obvious, what will they do when it isn't so obvious. If they fall prey to the trappings of the devil when he comes as the devil, what will they do, how will they stand when he comes as an angel of light.
The devil doesn't always come as an angel of light. He doesn't always come in disguise. He doesn't always present himself under a cover of deception. Sometimes he comes as who he is- the devil. He came as the devil in the wilderness when he tempted Jesus. He didn't come posing as an angel of light.
So my point is: when he comes as himself- obvious, out in the open- and you fall for it, how will you stand when he comes dressed in light? How will you stand when he does lying signs and wonders? How will you keep from falling when he comes quoting scriptures? How will you make it when he is dressed in sheep's clothing?
Again, why am I so alarmed? Because it takes absolutely no discernment to see that the movies that I have addressed are purely and totally demonic, yet countless numbers of Christians have "embraced" them. This being the case, what is going to happen when you do have to be discerning because the devil is hid under a cloak of light? I urge you to "sharpen" your sense of discernment. Study God's word. Test everything by it. Try the spirits. Abhor that which is evil and cleave to that which is good. Seek the truth that you be not deceived.
Have a great day. If you don't recognize it when it's obvious, what will you do when it isn't?!
