Satan’s Movie Snare

It’s that time of the year when new movies are released at the theatres and thousands of folks line up to enjoy some down time and entertainment. One of the new movies ,which has been released, is called “Noah.” This particular movie is supposed to be about Noah from the bible and the Genesis flood which God used to destroy the wicked world of Noah’s time. As people enter into the theatre, it is almost like sheep walking into a den of lions. They are going in under the presumption that what will be viewed on the big screen is basically what really took place. Many will say they know Hollywood will “spice things up” but because of a lack of bible knowledge they will have junk placed in their mind and walk away not knowing any different. It is kind of like the old saying “Cleanliness is next to Godliness,” which many believe is truly in the bible when it isn’t. When one fails to see the falsehood in movies such as “Noah” or the foolishness of old sayings which simply are not biblically, it gives satan a strong foothold in an individual life. In the text of 1Peter 5:8 we read “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.” The devil is not going to present himself in full open view but will gradually creep in for the kill much like a lion will do in the wilds of Africa. Movies such as Noah allow such cunning ways. It happened in the Garden of Eden in the book of Genesis as satan tempted Eve and gave her just enough of truth so she could not see a bold face lie and recognize the fall it would be. One can guard themselves from satan by means of putting on the armor of God Ephesians 6. To be victorious one must wear the armor daily and be diligent in the studies of God’s holy word 2 Timothy 2:15. For those considering the viewing of the movie, please think twice. The best way to avoid the snare of satan is to stay away from his traps.Until next week this is the Scriptural Truth. Tommy O’Kelley Minister Subligna Rd.
