Allegheny Valley Church Of God
Hellevision Has Arrived!!
January 22, 2016
The antichrist’s media department is at it again. First there was TV Land’s “Impaster.” Wikipedia says the plot is this: “Impastor follows Buddy Dobbs (Michael Rosenbaum), a fugitive and hard-core gambling addict who, in order to hide from a pair of loan sharks, ends up stealing the identity of a recently deceased gay pastor who was relocating to Ladner, a local small-town community.” With episode titles like, “Honor Thy Boyfriend’s Father And Mother,” and “The Body of Kenny Compels You,” it is evident that the show’s creators had a blatant agenda to make a mockery of God’s Word.
Then there is “Lucifer” which will have its debut this month. (January ’16) This is the offering from family friendly God fearing Fox network. Again, from Wikipedia: “Tom Ellis plays Lucifer Morningstar: The Lord of Hell who is bored with his life, abdicates his throne, and becomes a consultant for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) while running his own nightclub called Lux. Among other powers, he has a supernatural awareness of any person's hidden desires and can compel them to speak the truth. He enjoys using these abilities to expose sinners in public.” No serpent here. Here we have the prince of darkness, the enemy of Christ, portrayed as a hip guy in LA who wants to give the police a hand in solving some of their toughest cases. See, he’s not so bad after all. I’m sure the millennials will relate to him. Even the myriad of young adults who were raised in church and never missed a youth night, who left as soon as they were old enough, they’ll get a real kick of seeing this cool guy that their parents warned them about. Of course it’s never mentioned that Satan is a liar and the father of lies and came to steal, kill and destroy.
The latest offering comes from NBC. It’s called, “You, Me and the Apocalypse.” That’s right, now the prophets of Satan are trying their hand at eschatology. The story line goes like this: A comet is heading for the earth and will bring destruction upon the planet. A gay couple works feverishly to try to stop the comet, while a foul-mouthed chain smoking priest sets out to find the antichrist. Did I mention this was supposed to be a comedy?
Our culture has been taken over by God hating prophets of Satan. We are being fed a diet of antichristian media that calls good evil and evil good and doesn’t even try to disguise itself. This stuff is a blatant attack on the teachings of Christ. And it’s being fed to our nation with the sole purpose of corrupting the conscience and convincing a generation that there is no God and no absolute right and wrong. And the fault lies squarely at the foot of what has called itself the “church” for decades, that has been more concerned over keeping the doors open than equipping people to recognize and resist the temptations of the evil one.
We are in desperate need of an awakening, but it won’t come until born again believers get serious about praying, fasting, witnessing, learning, and forsaking the things of this world. Nothing but faith in Christ and him crucified will bring about the revival we seek. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life are the things of this world identified by John in his first letter. (1 John 2:15-17) We can't love the enticements of the world and God at the same time. Are you ready to stand against the forces of our culture that hate Christ and hate you? The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Pray, Christian, for boldness and strength to stand. Time is short. The future has been unveiled (apocalypse) clearly in God’s Word. The day of the Lord is at hand. Be ready.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
